Late English papers have been call ing attention to the alarming prevalence of disease among cattle. The disease attacks the mouths and hoofs of horses, cows, swine, etc. A couple of months ago it was heard of in the eastern coun ties; at la.t accounts it was raging in Lancashire and Sta ordshire; in fact, there is now hardly a county in England to which it has not spread. It is a matter of surprise that pre viously to 1839 this disease was i n known in the United Kingdom. Nor were other diseases of cattle now alto gether too familiar known up to that time. Aphthous and vesicular diseases of the mouth and hoofs were simply known as the "epidemic." The correct term lor them, which has s'-nce been applied, is "epizootic." A ear or two later the-e diseases were followed by the contagious pleuro-pneumonia, which was d'stinsjuished as "the new disease." These diseases were imported into En gland from foreign sho:e. As the Badi News has several times pointed out, it is a remarkable circumstance that the prevailing diseases, both hu man and animal, come from the Pat era world, which has thus been at once the source of both life and death to hu manity. The terrible cattle dseases which have devastated the British herds passed into that country from the shores of the North i-ea; the Dutch and the Prussians, on their parts, ttacedthem to Poland. Hungary and Russia; while the evolutionary movement 4 at length brings the scientific inquirer to the re motest regions of Asia, thus constitut ing the cradle of mankind the breeding place of its most deadly pestilences. In Great Britain science has sought in vain for a remedy for their virulent cattle epidemics, just as it has sought in vain for a remedv for the cholera of the present, or the black death and the plague of the past. In lamenting over the failure oF sc:ence to stem the tide of these death-dealingr cattle diseases, an 1- ngl;sh journal calls attention to the fact that in the interval between io;ii) and 1883 humanity has. in dealing, with them, only advanced to the point which Wordsworth, in an uncharitable mood, assigned as the limit of the physician's usefulness to give a name to the disease which he could not cure. Forty con-ccutive and highly scientific j'ears have carried humanity" no farther than this. It is believed in England that the present appearance ot the foot and mouth disease is largely owing to the wet and cold weather. It is even as serted that had every conceivable way of entrance from abroad heen barre 1 to the contagion, the traffic in store cattle between various parts of the United Kingdom would of itself be sufhVent to generate the epidemic in such a winter as the present. There is, in fact, grow ing throughout the country the opinion that the disease may orginate afresh at independent centers. This opinion is not, however, reflected in veterinary writins. nor does the Government act upon it, but applies the only remedy which has so far had any perceptible ef fect in checking its" ravages the slaughter of all foreign cattle supposed to be tainted. The latest newspaper accounts say that a disastrous outbreak of the foot and mouth j)lague has just occurred in the royal farms at WinJsor, which af Jords striking evidence that the most systematic care and the most perfect housing aie no sa eguards against the contagion o a disease which must be referred in the lat analysis largely to hardships and natural causes. It s a striking evidence of the pres ent straits of the Brit-sh farmers that the journals, which more immediately represent their intere-ts.call :or the free importation of store cattle from ioreign countries, to be subsequently fatted tor market. Such an importation would help the cattle in the Un ted States, wh le it would, were such cattle care fullv handled in transportation by land and sea, obviate much or" the loss from shrinkage, which is now" almost a fatal objection to shipping stock on long lines of communication.

" Jeptha," said Mrs. Jones one day last week, "1 wish you would get a porter-home beef-steak for break ast to morrow." Mr. Jones' jaw dropped and he sat and stared at his wife without speaking; at last he inquired: ls the Governor of the State going to breakfast with us, Maria?" " Why, no: 1 suppose we want some thing to eat once in awhile if we don' t happen to have company," said Mrs. Jones. " But good heavens, Maria! have you counted the cost? 1 am not a million aire and we haven't had another fortune, lett to us. How much porter-ho se steak do ou s lppose it will take to go round in this family?" " About nine pounds. If it was round steak, or chuck steak, two pounds would do, because we 'couldn't eat it, but every b.te of tenderloin will be eaten. Yes," said Mrs. J. smacking her lips, "every bite." Jones went down town like one in a dream. He hated to refuse Maria and he hated to spend so much money. How ever, he decided that the thing nr'st be done. So he drew a large sum from the bank and went to his butcher. "Nine pounds of porter-house steak," he said, feeling a good deal as a man does when he dictates his last will and testament. "Very good, sir," said the man of meats, rubbing his hands softly, " ' Arry, cut a choice porter-house from Lady Venus. Thank you, sir! h' anything more?" "Anything more!" Why, when that steak was trimmed Jones could have carried the whole lot home in his vest pocket his mouth fairiy watered when he .aw bits of white fat, crumbs of bone and large fragments of red meat lopped off, aiter it was weighed, but he counted out the money, paid for it, and tried to look happy. The next morning came; they had all seen the steak the night before, and Bridget had de lared it would be "a trate to brile it," and now they were all seated around the table waiting for Bridget to bring it in. "Now children," said Mr. Jones, sharpening the carving knife, "don't you ask for a second piece of that steak, m.nd now." Willie muttered something about be ing thankful if he got a' first piece, and Mrs. Jones was saying she wondered why they didn' t raise beef with more porter-house meat, when Bridget opened the door and intruded a ghastly face. "Howly Moses!" sa d she, 3 where's the mate?" Jone3 turned deathly pale, and ex claimed: "I am a ruined man!" Mrs. Jones rushed into the kitchen followed by the rest of the family. There was the clean white meat board, the hot coa's and the broiler, but n meat; they were still staring at each other when the milkman stepped in the open door. "Is it your meat you" re looking aftcr," he asked pouring out. the regular quart, "it's about out to Hamtramck now, lor I mot a big Mack dog tearing out of the yard with a beefsteak in his mouth." The family tiled mournfully back to the dining-room. There are t'mes when silence is golden this was one of them. Detroit fod and Tribune. Th3 Bride Paid the Expenses. One night last week, Boss" Hamil ton, son of Mr. Isaac Hamilton, at the Junction, procured half a dollar from his mother for the avowed purpose of hir'.ng a horse to go to a party at .Foe Newland's. Instead, however, he went to the hou e of Mr. George Moore, where his dulcinea. Miss Duckie Jen nings, was fctayinsr, and having pre viously arranged with her to Uy with him to Tennessee and become his bride, they were soon in a vehic.e and off for Danville, where they took the train for New River, a station on the Cincinnati Southern Railroad. Arriving there, a Magistrate did the business lor them, andon f ridav night last they returned to the Junction. The groom was a lew davs under seventeen, while the biide is a pretty, well-developed maiden of sweet sixteen. We learn that the expenses of the trip were de frayed by the latter, the boy having only the fifty cents his mother gave him. His parents have refused him the house, and we are told that his mother is almost inconsolable at the action of her baby boy. Stanford (A) Journal IK. LYME.
