The disease known as "pink-eye" has made its appearance among the horses in New York and is also reported as prevalent in some towns and viilages on the line of the Erie west of this village. The complaint appears to be the effect of a kind of acute inflammation of all the mucus membranes, and the inflam mation is said by veterinary surgeons to be caused by the sudden changes in the weather from heat to cold. "Pink eye," it is said, is not an epidemic. It is apt to break out sud denly in a large, over-crowded stable, and it will often confine itself to that one stable. About seven-tenths of all the horses in the B table catch the disease, and about one in twelve of the horses affected die. The symptoms are loss of appetite, rise of tem perature, rheum of the nose and eyes, swell ing of the legs, and inflammation of the in ternal lining of the eye-lids. A cure takes ten or twelve days. Stimulents are the chief feature of the treatment.— Ex. A good girl wanted to do general work in small family. Apply at this office.
