Azoturia Caused by
Lack of Exercise and
Too Much Food
New York Dec 31The Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ani
mals announces that one hundred
odd horses were stricken In the
streets last Tuesday with azoturia
following the trlplo Christmas boll
day Azoturla may roughly be de
scribed as the equinox equavalent for
katzcnjammer At least it comes
from too much holidays and some of
the symptoms are analogous They
Include loss of control over the hind
legs but an attack Is no light mat
tor I Is some times followed by
death often by permanent weakness
The disease develops among work
Ing horses from lack of exorcise and
too much food The society expects
another outbreak to follow New
Years and recommends that owners
cut down the allowance of food on
the second day of rest and gle a half
a pound of sales in bran I the warn
ing Is disregarded serious loss may
bo Islted on many who depend on
their horses for a livelihood
In some peculiar manner the cat
has conceived the impression that the
management of the Iron Blossom
company has gained the 1700foot lov
ol by means of diamond drills and
the company Is not given credit for
tho deep development work accom
plished In an efficient workmanlike
fashion As a matter of fact tho No
1 or south shaft Is driven to tho
1900foot level and It Is kept In con
dition for operation to that depth
Tho work done on the 1700foot level
Is actual drifting and not diamond
Tho annual report of this company
recently issued had tho following paragraph
this south shaft
agraph in regard to shaf
This shaft Is situated in the south
central part of the property and was
originally equipped with a double
drum hoisting engine boilers etc
capable of operating to a depth of
2500 feet This hoist Is now electric
ally equipped and gives as efficient
service as steam and much cheaper
The original policy of exploring for
a deep mine at this point has been
I adhered to and whenever practicable
the sinking of tho shaft has been
I prosecuted In October however at
I a depth of 1900 foot a flow of water
I was encountered and further sinking
abandoned pending the exploration
of the levels above the water zone
I Is now much the deepest shaft on
the cast side of the district
