CORE FOR CHICKEN CHOLERA.
An intelligent correspondent in Mary
land, sends us the following remedy for
chicken cholera. If it be found effica
cious, he will deserve the thanks of the
people of this whole region where many
hundred dollars worth of poultry have
been destroyed by this disease.
Editscr of the Middletown Transcript.
_Dkar Sir. —The country for the past
few years, has been scourged by that
fatal disease among the poultry, called
• • Chicken Cholera," and while on a visit
to one of my neighbors, a few days ago, I
learned his estimable lady's prescription,
which has proved efficient, both
cdy, nnd preventive, even after many
were thought to bo beyond all hope of re
lief; after taking the medicine, they would
in a very short time be as lively as ever.
~~Tbe ingredients used were salts and
catechu —To one doien hens, (or in that
proportion) mix five tablespoonsfull of
salts in meal and water, sufficient to make
dough ( soy half gallon ) and feed to them
in the yard. The next day dissolve one
half ounce of Catechu with warm water
sufficient to make the same amount of
dough, and feed as before. Should any
bo bo far gone as not to be able to eat, it
must be forced down them. The same
prescription holds good in respect to young
turkeys in the spring, they often being
attacked with diarrhoea, and whole flocks
being swept away by it.' Not only in our
neighborhood does this disease prevail,
hut I can hear of its ravages for many
miles around, and should the above remedy
prove useful to the public, as I believe it
will, I most cheerfully give it, believing
that the community are entitled to the
benefit of anything that will conduce to
the public good. Schusic,
