Cure and Prevention of Hog Cholere.
Our well-known countyman, Dr.
\V. W. Brown, who is Regent of the
West Virginia University for this
Senatorial District, has taken great
pains to secure for our people all the
information available to him in that
capacity upon the subject of the cure
and prevention of hog cholera, and
furnishes us for publication the fol
lowing in regard to this destructive
disease, which is now ravaging in our
county: .
Any one who has ever examined
an animal that has died of this disease
will understand that medicines can be
of little benefit. The disease espe
cially in the intestines and lungs and
are usuallv so great that no one with
any knowledge of the subject will be
surprised that no drug can cure in
every case. As in typhoid fever,
and other diseases in man, all that
should be attempted is to assist the
natural forces of the animal in over
coming the disease. Any drug ad
ministered for any other purpose
than this can do no good and may do
harm. The administration of all
sorts of drugs recommended is enough
of itself to kill the animal in many
cases, and the practice cannot be
too severely condemned. Som* cases
where the animal is particularly n ig
orouc, or where the disease is of a
mild type, recover of themselves, and
it is probable that remedies which
have gained popularity have done so
by having been tried upon such
cases, where the recovery would take
place without any treatment. There
are so few cases of recovery in some
outbreaks, and the difficulties.of treat
ment are so great that it is not advisa
ble to try any remedy at all.
Although the treatment of separate
cases is valueless, or even injurious,
as we have said, much may be ac
complished in preventing the spread
of the disease in a neighborhood, or
even on a single farm. As point
ed out by Salmon in his last report,
the sources of infection are as fol
lows:
"Pigs purchased from infected
herds, or coming in contact with those
from infected farms, or running oyer
grounds occupied by diseased swine
within two or three months.
"Infected streams may communi
cate the disease to herds below the
source of infection.
"Virus mav be carried in feed, im
plements and on the feet and cloth
ing of persons from iufected herds
and premises.
"Winds, insects, birds (particularly
buzzards) and various animals may
transport hog cholera virus."
Our efforts at preventing the spread
of the disease may be intelligently
directed if we carefully bear in mind
the above sources of infection. As
will be seen, the disease does not
break out gpontaneously. The germs
must be first brought from some iu
fected herd. It follows that exclusive
diet of corn, the eating of spoilt cot
ton seed meal, filth, the presence of
worms in the intestines, kidneys, or
elsewhere, cannot in themselves be
the cause of the disease.
As the germs must be brought
from an infected herd, it is evident
that, if precautions are taken, the
spread of the disease can be prevent
ed. The first source of infection
pointed out by Salmon is the most
important, and it follows that all
communication between sick animals
on the one hand, and healthy animals
on the other, should be strictly avoid
ed, and the practice so common in
this State and elsewhere of allowing
hogs to run at large, makes it impos
sible to successfully combat the ex
tension of the disease. As long as
this custom prevails, no measures can
be successfully employed to keep the
disease from spreading all over the
neighborhood from the point of the
first outbreak.
As regards the second source of
infection pointed out by Salmon, the
latter iound that the germs of the
disease may live, or even multiply, in
water, hence, it follows that hogs
should not be allowed to drink from
streams which have been polluted
above by diseased animals.
In view of the third source of in
fection, it is apparent that no one
should be allowed to visit a healthy
herd if he has previously been with
diseased animals. No implements
used about infected pens and no food
from a farm where there are infected
animals should be brought where
there are healthy animals.
In regard to the transportation of
the germs through the air, Salmon's
own observations go to show that it
seldom, if ever, takes place; and he
states as much. To prevent the dis
semination of the disease by birds,
(buzzards and the like), insects, etc.,
the dead hogs should be promptly
burned or buried deeply.
What we have said above applies to
the prevention of the spread of the
disease in a neighborhood, but similar
rules apply equally well to the spread
of the disease in herds. In addition
the following rules, suggested by Dr.
Salmon, may also be recommended:
"Removal of still healthy animals
to enclosed uninfected grounds or pens
as far as possible from infected local
ities.
"Destruction of all diseased ani
mals.
"Careful burial or burning of car
casses."
"Repeated thorough disinfection of
the infected premises.
"Great cleanliness, both as to sur
roundings, and as regards the food,
to prevent its becoming infected."
It is very important that the sepa
ration takes place as indicated, for
if the sick hogs are removed, the
healthy animals are liable to become
infected from the pens. When the
healthy hogs are removed, they
should be divided up into small lots,
as in this way the chances of saving
a portion of the herd are much great
er than where they are all kept to
gether.
When the outbreak is severe, the
animals should be killed as soon as
they show the first symptoms of the
disease.
It is very difficult to effectually dis
infect contaminated premises. It is
almost impossible to get at all the
cracks and crevices iu the fences or
troughs, or elsewhere in the pen.
The soil and litter are very hard to
disinfect, even if they can be conven
iently reached. If any of the germs
remain lodged in any part of the pen
of course they may start an out
break from afresh. There is a long
list of substances which have been
found useful as germicides or disin
fectants such as quicklime, either in
powder or freshly slaked. This should
be applied as thoroughly as possible
to every part of the pen. It would
be well to thoroughly sweep the
ground of the pen and burn all trash
and rubbish swept off, and the ground
should then be covered abundantly
with powdered quicklime. All the
wood-work of the pen might be first
washed over with corrosive sublimate
solution, and then thoroughly washed
with freshly slacked lime. The cor
rosive sublimate solution need not be
stronger than one dram to one gallon
of water.
Coffee Cake.
One egg, one cup of brown sugar,
one cup of molasses, one cup of but
ter, one cup of strong cold coffee,
one pound of raisins, one tablespoon
ful of cloves, one tablespoonful of
cinnamon, one grated nutmeg and
one heaping teaspoonful of soda.
Put in the molasses for four or five
cups of flour; mix very stiff and bake
in a moderate oxen for an hour.
Cider can be substituted for coffee.
Plain Pudding.
Stew any kind of fruit (raspberries
or blackberries are preferable) with
sugar, a small piece of butter and
enough cornstarch to thicken it a lit
tle. Cut into slices some bread; but
ter or not, as you like it. Place in a
dish a layer of the sliced bread, then
the fruit, and so on, leaving the fruit
on top. Serve while warm. You
can toast the bread if you like.
On his eighty-second birthday the
Hon. Simon Cameron wrote to a young
friend iu Philadelphia as follows:
"The best duty any citizen of
our country can perform is to do our
duty as citizons so as to transmit this
heritage, increased and perfected, to
those who shall come after us. To
do this a steady, sober, industrious life
is the first of all. Then a calm and
thoughtful care to perform all our
political duties with a view to benefit
the general mass of our fellow-citizens
and last, the greatest, to serve our
Creator well and truly. Do these as
well as you can. God asks no more
from any one. And wherein you fail
He has arranged a wise merciful way '
in which all shortcomings will be I
overlooked in those who have done |
their utmost."
An old negro stood watching the
electric cars as they glided along
through the streets of Richmond with
out visible power. He evidently re
garded them as "a rash intrusion,"
and thns soliloquized: "I)ar now!
what is the white folks gwine to do
next? Dey done 'scard de nigger,
and now gwine drap de poor mule."
A Pittsburg coroner makes no
charge when he sits on a young man
who parted his hair in the middle.
He says that his personal satisfaction
is enough without the fee.
It was only the other day that a
man who swore that he would not cut
his hair until Henry Clay was elected
President thought of a way out of it ;
he let his wife cut it.
A physician of Norristown asserted
that "disease may be spread by kiss
ing, whereupon the editor of the
Norristown Herald wrote : "Let her
spread."
That tired feeling and loan of appetite are
entirely overcome by Hood's 8a rsa pari 11a,
the peculiar medicine. Try It and see.
A physician advised Sidney Smith
to take a walk on an empty stomach.
"Whose stomach?" he asked.
