. BONK DISEASE. , I’MTVENTtoN MCTTF.U THAN COtE. It is a common thing to see cattle chew ing at a bone ns if it were the most deli cious morsel the world afforded. It is by no means uncommon to rind cattle, and especially milch cow s, suffering from what is called Bone, disease. A very proper and significant name it is, for it is a weakness and frailty of the bones themselves, and is caused solely by the want of food contain ing a sufficiency of the indespensHrie bone mukiflg material. Phosphate oj Lime. 1 hoy have been feeding in pastures which have been robbed of w hat cannot be dispensed with in the structure ot bones, to such an extent that the cattle sutler. The instincts of the animal lead it to seize a bone just as hunger prompts us to eat loud. Most farmers understand the diagnosis of the disease, and many attempt a pallia-, tion of the evil bv feeding them with doses of hone meal. If they fully apprehended what a shiftless makeshift such a proceed ing is, compared with another method which would radically prevent the evil, largely increase their crops, and put money in their pockets, all by one operation, they would feed their hungry soils, and lot their hungrv cow s eat of the luxuriant and jully nutritious herbage w hich may be grown by the appluoittm of phosphates. Ket the cattle have all the bone-phosphate they need by all mean-, but make it do double service. T.et it increase the herbage and enrich the fodder in the first place, and after the phosphate has done tin-, and has itself been worked ov er and •* progressed ” and cooked and prepared by the processes ol nature into the tortn in which it ought to be administered. then let the cattle par tafet ot it daily and every time they eat. Is the case of dairy animals this evil is deeper seated and more widely spread than is generally rvslind. jffbo-piiafes aw nypoved in layer quanti ties. iwu ft# soil «l nastur. s devoted to dairv stock.

Prof. Yoeleker say.-, that phosphate* are the food most fed upon by the choicest and most nutritious of the grasses. The evil result of taking such food from the soil, and not replacing it. must sooner or later be appa rent in every case. The best way to re place it. is by the application of a liberal dressing of a genuine superphosphate. (\wUnnital Life Iwuranfe Co.’y, OF M W YORK. OFFICES.

At the expir ation of that time, however, I thought 1 commenced to experience slight relief, which encouraged me to persevere in its use, and now, at the expiration of four months, although 1 ani an infirm old man. nearly 78 years of age, and consequently medicines cannot be expected to favorably affect me as they otherwise would, I have found' such unspeakable relief and permanent benefit from Mr. Hehnbold's valuable discovery, that 1 feel I ought to publicly record the fact, as an acknowledgement to him and a valuable suggestion to the public.

Dr. IIelmhold— Dear Sir; It is with much pleasure that I write you upon fuetijf respecting my self. 1 do not know hardly how to express myself. 1 have been for the last ten or twelve years the greatest sufferer man could be and live; but more : sometimes than others. The complaint was the “Kidneys” and “Bladder.” 1 have been nometimes 1 from twelve to fourteen hours, and wanted to make water every minute, but could not. Have consult- : ed doctors, both in Massachusetts and this State, and taken pills, 1 may say. by the quart, also li.j- ! uored medicines, but found no relict from any, and i got worse the last six months. 1 was so that 1*could scarcely gel about. 1 could not rest night or day. It would soon have been “all tip” with me if I had 1 not seen your advertisement in “The Berkshire j Courier” headed “Kulnevs.” 1 read it through and thought I would try it. 1 purchased a bottle, but, mindyou, hud not much faith in it. Why* should 1, when 1 had been trying so many things and cost me so much ? Well, I began taking it. and before 1 had taken the first bottle 1 felt bad; but 1 finished it and got another. By the time 1 took half of the second I still got worse (apparently). When I walked it seemed as if my right kidney was falling from its place, and 1 felt really bad. I felt so, before I hail tlnished tiie second, that 1 hud made lip my mind it was of no use trying any more—and all this time the “Buehu” was doing its work, but 1 did not know it; so 1 gave it up and went to Hartford on Saturday to see one of tile best doctors in the citv. lie -aid it w as the neck of the hlad'h r, and 1 should have to undergo an operation. He gave me med icine, and I went home quite downhearted. On Sunday 1 wras unable to go to church. I had not taken any of his medicine, but on my return contin ued using the “Buehu,” and in the afternoon I had a desire to make water, but could not. About one hour utter this 1 tried again, with the same result; but the next time I took the vessel it was the same as turning a faucet and stopping it off again. It was so for three times, and the third time there w as something eatue through the passage and struck . against the side of the vessel. 1 examined it, and it is the ugliest stone or gravel you ever «mv. cov ered over with little peiee* which collided together. It looks the color of a mud turtle, and is as hard as a flint. So you see the “Buehu” w as doing it> work although 1 was feeling so badly. 1 procured an other bottle thinking tlieir might lie some more be hind, blit since that has passed, which is eight weeks ago last Sunday, 1 have been as well as ever 1 w as in my life. 1 have the stone securely w rapped and those who have seen it iu this place, are sur prised. I cannot tell you all. hut this is a true story of my case, and you are welcome to make such use of my name as you think proper. I am pretty w ell known in Berkshire; also in Connecticut. The ad-, vertisement saved me. Why not publish more? The Springfield Republican is a wide-spread paper If any one wishes to see this wonder, they can do so. I could write all day, but think 1 have said : enough this lime, so 1 remain vour ever w ell w isher, KDWAUD L HOWARD. Paper Maker, Burnside. Hartford Co., Conn. I REFERS TO Dr. MACK, Burnside, Conn.

Twelve years’ experience ought. 1 think, to give me the right to judge of it.-, merits; and. without prejudice or par tiality . I give yours precedence over all others. 1 value your Huehu for its effects on patients.
