It is especially destructive to flocks in the North mid West. The course of tho dlsoaso is slo'v, Fymptoins are apparent, only In the late stages, and tho mortality Is high. The danger to man, however, Is slight, especially, since cooking the flesh of fowls destroys the tubercle bacilli. Trontnient of fowls affected Is declared to be useless, but disease may bo stamped out by methods dos rlbed In Farmers Bulletin No. .121)0 which may. bo had upon application to tho Division of Publications, United SUitcs Department of Agriculture. Of all domesticated birds the fowl shows by far tho highest mortality from tuberculosis. Tho dlscaso has spread so extensively In some states as to cause very serious losses to the poultry Industry. The Insiduous man. nor of attack makes it most difficult to combat, because uffeced birds show no visible symptoms until the dlscaso processes are far ndvonccd, and li the meantime It hns been comniWui cated to tho others of the flock. Avian tuberculosis, as It is some times called, Is caused by a microor ganism closely resembling the bacilli of human and boviho tuberculosis. While, primarily, it affects birds, It mny also attack other animals. Pigs exiscd fto tuberculous flockH fre quently aro affected, and display lo calized tubercles In the lymph glands of the head, neck, and mesentery. Rata and mice also may contract the disease naturally. Bacilli of the avian typo have been found in tuberculous persons. The principal danger to nu- mans Is In eating raw eggs from tub' erculous fowls, as eggs may be in fected v'Hh the bacilli. However, no hion Is considered quite resistant to the avian type of tuberclo bacilli, the Cluinoof, of Infection nre doubtless slight. Tuberculosis may be introduced on a farm In several ways, such as re celving infected fowls, exposure to neighboring infected flocks using same range, infection of promises by free-Hying birds, carriers, such as What Is fijIUtMimf P 'iil!um i""n ni re numlll ujc uwhi if that plntititn tmi, ftmffti m tlve. mill nliu alloyed with platinum onil Bold.

Interfere with the normal functioning 1 of tho body. The older fowls, from 2 to 3 years old, are most likely to dls play symptoms nnd show a high, death rate. Ono of the first symptoms Is gradual emaciation, which becomes especially noticeable In the breao.t muscles These diminish in size until in ud vanced stages there is scarcely any flesh left on the breast bone. Feeling the breast region will readily defect these and other symptoms :'t length l.alesnoss of comb, wattles, skin on the "end a il about the eyes is evidence of tho last stages, a skuiou opur.uiui - an apply tho intradermic tuberculin test to detect tho presence of tho dls iasc. but medical treatment for fowls is futile.
