(. Lei is, Farm Demonstrator.) 1 should have written th s article :ast week, but being rushed so much :t wa; not done. I hear so many reports on the cause of death to a large number of rattle in and around Covington that I bel'eve I should write a bit any x ay. We will take this up in ques ions and answer them. 1. how do I know that we have charbon? From the fact that every blood smear cent to the laboratory and state chemist showed anthrax germ or bacilli in apundance. 2. I-jew can any one tell charbon by looking at or testing a blood smear? From the fact that charbon is a disease by itelf . There are no other diseases with germs as plent'ful and as large ac those found in the blood taken from an animal just after death. It is a very easy matter to see these snake-like germs under a microscope. 3. A prom nent veternarian from New Orlean, treated animals be longing to C. Bradley; he also pro nounced the disease charbon. I. What other ways can a person detect charbon in'fair degree of ac curacy? By making an examination of the body two or three hours after death. The points that might be found that would indicate charbor are swelling of belly, being swelled ;o tight that a basebal would bounce back 1 ke it had been thrown againa a drum. Also a watery discharge from nose and sometimes from bot-i nose and mouth. This discharge wil in a great many cares have a small amount of blood and yellow pa, mixed with it. Then from the awful swelling the rectum will be par tially turned out with bloody dis charge. In 19 cases out of every 20 one will be safe in saying the animal died with charbon, if above symp toms are found. There are other point; to be considered 'but there is not room here to take the diseas' up in detail. If one is in doubt get a small piece of glass, about two inches square, and clip the ear part ly off, not all the way for it might be left on the ground to cause fur ther infection. Hold the glas just under the clipped part and by press Ing a small bit of blood can be got ten and allowed to dry on the glass. After blood is dry place another (Continued on page 4) SLIDELL NEWS OF THE WEEK AND SOCIETY DOINGS (By Staff Correspondent) V r. B. H.
