" Dear Mrs. Pixkham : I have used Lydia E. Pinkham's

chain three or four feet long. The

run a rod about three feet long.,There
are two rods, one on each side of the

inches to each end, which allows it to
stand parallel with and two inches or
so from the side of the stall. By this

The Schmidt Treatment for Milk
Fever Has Been Tested vrlth
Success In Denmark.
The Schmidt treatment for milk fe
ver in cattle has resulted in a remark
able number of recoveries, report
from 107 veterinarians showing 86
per cent. Dr. Schmidt, of Denmark,
assumes the disease to be due to the
elaboration of a toxin in the udder.
The treatment is simple, within tha
reach of all dairymen.
Dissolve 120 grains iodide of potash
in one quart of water, which has been
boiled, and allowed to cool to about the
temperature of the body. Introduce a
fnnnel and pipette into the ends of a
rubber tube-and place in a bucket of
antiseptic fluid. Milk the udder dry;
then place under the cow a piece of oil
cloth about a yard square, so that the
udder will be about the middle of the
cloth. Wash the udder and teats thor
oughly with castile soap and warm
water, rinsing carefully with antisep
tic fluid: Insert the pipette into the
end of a teat and fill the funnel with
iodide of potash solution. By pass
ing successively from one teat to an
other distribute the solution equally
among the quarters of the udder. Hub
the udder from the teat toward the
body and massage thoroughly in or
der to distribute the solution through
out. Eight or ten hours after the in
jection, or when recovery is assured.
the udder should be carefully milked
out and then bathed with warm wa
ter, about 160 degrees F. A second
injection is rarely necessary, but if so,
it should he done at the end of six
or eight hours. If there should be a
tendency toward hardness of the ud
der or ".ttringiness" of the milk, baths
of warm water should be applied every
three or four hours until relieved. If
neglected garget will result. As a
preventive measure it is advisable to
restrict robust animals to a moderate
allowat.ee of dry food for seven or ten
days previous to the end of their
term; and where there is a tendency
toward costiveness or constipation,
.correct it with a drench of epsom
salts. Prof. S. S. Buckley, Maryland

Test for Formalin In Milk.
A new test has been elaborated
for determining the presence of
formalin in milk. Phenylhydrazin
and ten per cent, solution of soda
is added to a small protion of the
diluted milk. In the presence even
of two drops of formaldehyde to 100
cubic centimeters of milk rose color
will result. In normal milk no. color
is produced. In determining the
presence of milk sugar, a small
amount of sodium acetate is added
in addition to phenylhydrazin and
ten per cent, soda solution, as in the
previous case. A rose color will re
sult' in the presence of milk sugar.
Keep the Stable Clean.
The cow stables should have lis-ht.
Tentilation, cleansing, drainage, no
offensive matter allowed about the
stable, sufficient supply of pure water
nd wholesome food for the cows.
.No dairyman should be so nes-liVent
as to be responsible for the trans
mission of disease through the sale
of milk for the want of cleanliness.
