A correspondent writes in the New
York Worhi as follows: I have been doc
toring my fowls for the past year or so
with homeopathic remedies, the same as
I use in my family. I have had excel
lent success with "spongia" for roup. It
has cured almost every case. As soon as
I see a symptom of this disease I give
spongia in water, the proportions ob
served beicg about two drops in each
tablespoonf nl of water, or, sayten drops
in a half glassful of v.-ater. This I give
according to the seieriry of the case,
from one to three hours apart, a tea
spoonful. When the: e are ninny chicks
to treat the medicin- ihhv be dropped
into the drinking water or the food may
be mixed vith it.
1 have ha 1 no experience with tmues.
bnt 1 nm t;.M that the homeopathic
remedy known as "china" is the one for
it. Tne dose in all t:;-.- homeopathic
remedies, in the liquid form, is t!ie same
namely, two drops in a spoonful of
water, given at intervals from one hour
to three times ier cav. For cjucktta
cholera I have given ar.senicum with good
effect. The remedies suggested art the
homeopathic preparati ins,-not the usual
drug store article, a id as a rule are
fonnd only in a houieo-,athic phnrmttcy.

According to a bulletin issued by. the
Kansas station, in all or dinary cases mat
can be entirely prevent ed by tiwataug tbe
seed fifteen minutes in water raiMd to a
temperature of 132 dejrs. F. Tho snw.t
may also be prevented oy immersing the.
seed twenty-four hours in a one-half Tr
cent, solution of potassium snlfftitde. The
statement, however, is based onavery
few experiments of last year only. The
other -fungicides tested, when destroying
all or nearly all the imut, greatly in
jured the stand. Seed lrom clean fields
will produce a crop free from smnt, bnt
if the adjoining fields are smutty the oats
will gradually become iiifected.

L'nsclentiflo Advice to Timid Sunls Who
Tremble at the Thought or "Germs."
"Save us from the microbes! It has been
discovered by someoue that hail is infested
by microbes, and we consequently earnestly
nrge our readers to always seek shelter in
a hail storm as a precautionary measure.
This is bad enough, but now along comes
some other scientific chap, who tells us
that Vichy watr, which an ignorant and
guileless world has been drinking for cen
turies, is loaded to the muzzle with
'germs! Presumably nil other bottled
waters are in the same dangerous state,
and the water furnished to all of our cities
is more or less condemned by these men as
being in t he same category. What are we
to do? Science is a dabster at pointing out
horrible perils that surround us on all
sides, but always gets shaky whn it tns
to prescribe remedies. It is well for the
timid, who tremble at the presence of the
microbe, to think no more about him; to
eut and drink as usual, and should an ill
assail let the indicated remedy remove it."
The Homeopathic Envoy, whicu is au
thority for the foregoing, admits thnt its
advice is not scientific, but affirms that it
will promote, hupuiuexs and prolong life if
