The Western , Republican was a sup porter of Jackson's Administration, and was a paper of deci led ability.

'. '' " Datrn Sick Animals. vastly more importance keep animals in health than to cure them when sick. As a general rule animals may be kept in good health by the observance of a few simple rules : 1. Animals should always be fed with regularity both in respect to time and . quantity. Overfeeding is; often the cause of disease. , 2. They should always havo water as often as required, and that which i3 pure. Horses will not drink of hard, lime or clayey, if they can have access to pure water. . 7 '- 3. Do not overwork horses and oxca Regular and moderate labor will ac complish more in a year, and keep them in better condition than over working at one time and resting and overfeeding at another. .-' 4. A sufficient variety should be fed tosi&ek in winter,and not confine them to dry hay or straw and 'grain.: A mess cf carrots, turnips or potatoes cut and mixed with ground oat3 or shorts, is excellent to promote health, and should be given as often as twice a week. ; t 5. Never feed musty and mouldy fodder ; but if it must be used, cut it, moisten and sprinkle over with meal, and feed to horned cattle. It never should be fed to horses. -.'' 6. Always shelter stock ia coll storms in all seasons of the year, and never leave a horse after being driv en, to stand in the cold wind without being covered with a good thick blank et or buffalo. .' '.'.'.."''.' 7. Avoid all sudden changes of food in grain or from hay to grass. ' 4 8. Due care should be taken that animals always have a plenty of pure, fresh air, and for this purpose stables should be well ventilated, aa stock often become sick from breathing foul air.- A proper amount of exercise is also essential. , . ". 9. Strict cleanliness should always be observed. All animals are found to maintain a better condition and fit ten faster when curried and tept clean. . - -- .-.J i Yi'hcn an animal becomes sick,one of the best measures to be adopted is good nursing. . This is a method be ginning to be advocated by the best practitioners of the medical art, ss being applicable to the human family, and is unquestionably a3 advantageous when applied to farm stock. There is no doubt that the life of Taluable ani mals is often lost by doctoring, while many recover when left to themselves and tho workings of Jatare.
