l'robablynoothcrdiscaspissodreadivl in the Ameiican poultry yard as this; anil oninjj to this dread, fouls are often tho.i;ht tohme the cholera when, in reality, the diV-ase is simply diarrhoea, or a -cere form of roup. One of the first symptoms of the pennine fowl cholera is to be found in the excrement. In liealth, the portion of this excrement which comes from the kidneys is white, anil is mixed with the bowel excretions, which are darker colored. when the fowl is attacked xxith cholera, however, the excrements como almost altogether from the kid- inns, and are -onii-Iiijinil, and of a greenish or yellon ih color. This change of color is slated by Dr. I). K. SjImoTi, u ho has recently given this disease a thorough in estimation, under direction of the Department of Agriculture, at Washington, to make its appearance generally before the excrement becomes litjuiil, and while the fowl seems in per fect health. Sometimes the lirst sxni tom is di.irrhiv.1, but in all cases this ery soon sets in; the excrement is oided frequently, and consists largely of that from the kidney, called by l)r. Salmon, the "uratc-i" which is" sus pended in a thin, transparent mucus, and has adeep, jellowcoloration. which in later stages of thu disease changes to ?C-J a greenish, or even a deep green color. The fow I becomes stupid, sleeping most of the time, is generally quite thirsty; its temperature rises to 11PJ or 110 de grees; the comb and wattle lose their bright color and turn pale, orexen dark. When a fowl that has died with cholera is cut open, the lixer is Usually found to be greatly enlarged, and so degenerated that it may be crushed between the lin gers and the gall-bladder is distended with thick, dark bile. When this disease has once fastened upon a chicken, there is no cure. The disease will run its course in afew-days, and occasionally a fowl will recover; but these cases are rare. The remedy, ' therefore, is pretention. It has been conclusively show n that the disease is due to a peculiar poion probably to the organic hLoii called llacteriuni, which has been found to be the cause of the so-called anthrax diseases, and which is of a similiar nature to that of the t east plant. This poison is seldom, if eter, generated afresh, but the disease is IiropagateiU either bv direct contact, or iy the mediation of birds, insects, men, animals, or drinking water. Dr. S. J. Parker writes to the Country Gentleman that he has traced an outbreak of fowl cholera in his ioultry xards to the rob ins, which he found ding in consider able numbers shortly before the disea-e broke out. The tery similiar di-case, swine cholera, has undoubtedly been carried long distances by the water of streams; and this disease bears the fur ther resemblance to fowl cholera that the !irt observable symptom is usually the change in the color of the excre ment, which in this case becomes al most b'ack. As the disease may bo carried to our yards through so many hidden agencies, it is etident that wo cannot be sure of prctcnting its adicnt. Cur proper course, is, therefore, to watch for its ap pearance, and if we ce any indications of it, to immediately isolate the infect ed fowls, and disinfect the premi-cs they hate occupied, if Jiossible, or else remote the licaltnv towls to an unin fected place. To prevent the spread of the disease, the roosts and hen-houses should I sprinkled with a dilute solu tion of sulphuric acid, made bv adding three pounds of sulphuric aeiil to forty gallons of w ater anil mixing et enly by agitation or stirring. This must be done cautiously, as this acid will burn the flesh or clothing if it touches them, and it raises water to the boiling point when the two are suddenly mixed. All very sick fowls should "be killed, and all dead fowls, with all the excrement that can be found, should be burned; as if they are simply buried, the disease is likely to bo propagated by earth worms. In the drinking water of fowls which are likely to be exposed to this conta gion, wo" would advi-e the use of hypo sulphite of soda. at the rate of one ounce to a pailful of water. , For a fowl once fairly down with the disease, thcro is. as before said, almost no hope, lint if a fowl bo found casting the pecu liar excrement described, bet otherwise apparently well, relief may sometimes be afforded by giving strychnine, in the form that homeopathic physicians ex ,i,s,4 na Tinr X miwi t 'I m'rtitff fivi cx- ve or six pellets to a.fnll-grotyn fowl, and to a smaller one in proportion.

Louisville Farm ami Fireside. Tlie Farm Horse. Tlicre are manr errors committed hv farmers in selecting breeding stock for i.inn lior.es. Ssize merelv will not un. And in thu respect there are fla grant impositions practiced by importers of the Cltdesdale and Xorman nor-es, in losing sight of muscle and action, in the rage for enormous size. There must be pretious careful breeding to develop the best qualities necessary to insure endurance and action. These do not come alone from clover pastures, heavy feeding of oat, or from extra grooming, but from the very best pa rentage. The walk is the best gait for the farm horse. But the Uses of the farm horse are taried and multiplied. And although the heavy draft is needed to turn the soil several inches deeper than is the practice, and to take to the railroad station larger loads than the universal scrub has been in the habit of doing, the fanner of to-day is different ly situated from the farmer forty j cars ago. He has the good farailv carriage, to propel which at a good speed ne cannot afford to keep a special span of horses. So the fanner wants horses of weight and strength to do heavy tt ork, but at the same time have endur ance w ith quick action. And this is at tained only through a long line of an cestry, selected and mated by wise breeders. There are an abundance of heavy Clydesdales and Xorman horses in the country, but the farmer has one of the most difficult tasks to select from among them the horse iossessing the proMT muscular development, thor oughly established through a w ell know n line of ancestry. Big legs, and ungain ly bumps of flesh, roughly piled tojreth- er, are too often recognized as a noble specimen of the horse. But the true horse should be stately in form, grand in style, free and energetic in action, of superior intelligence, and mild and do mestic in disposition Hut tuesc mu-t be bred in the bone. Do not breed to any horse for the reason merely that the ow ner is a particular friend and a good neighbor. Such friend-hip is too cost ly. And beware of the smooth tongue of the keejierof a horse delicient in all good qualities. Men of this quality are a great curse to the community. But there is moro for farmers to da than to be careful in breeding. In rais ing horses for ale, they should be thor oughly trained. Frequently a good juuge sees the making of a line horse in the ImihIs of a farmer ignorant of the jewel of a horse he has. Ho is bought for a moderate price, put in careful training and in a few weeks is sold for tw o or three times w hat the fanner re ceit ed for him. The farmer lo-t this by not developing his horse by careful training. It i. therefore, necessary to be careful in breeding, and especially attentive in training and deteloping. lowa state ueijtster. It is with feelinss akin to pain that wo obscrte that our best voun;r men are clothing theniselt cs in trousers that lit them too quick, and hats that arc built on the model of a schooner yacht.
