It is said that within seven miles of that place 2,000 hogs have died from the disease. A private letter from Red Cloud, Neb., received by parties in this city bears the sad information that Mr. J. W. Sherwood, formerly of this city lies dangerously ill at that place. Dr. Atkinson, state veterinary surgeon : last week visited Portage, Fox Lake, Randolph and other portions of the state where cases of the genuine hog cholera are said to exist.

John Osborne’s mare “Lady O,” did herself proud in the three minute race at the Lancaster fair, taking second money, and closely contesting for first place in a heat which was trotted in 2: 38. John Stephenson, of.this city, at tended the fair at Galena last week. He expresses himself as most highly pleased at the unstinted praise be stowed upon the Mineral Point band by the people of Galena and others present at the fair. While engaged in putting in a cross-main near the gas works in Milwaukee the other day, several men were asphyxiated by the escaping gas and when brought to the surface two of them were thought to be past recovery. By the diligent work of physicians, however they were restored to life. Every young man who can pos sibly do so should take a course at some first-class business college, and The Democrat takes pleasure in recommending the Spencerian Busi ness College, of Milwaukee, as being the oldest and best institution of its kind in the state. For circulars and full information regarding terms, etc. write to R. C. Spencer, Milwaukee, Wis. A large number of fine animals from J. J. Ross & Sons' magnificient herd of short horn cattle have just finished a most successful tour of the fairs in this section of the country, carrying off nearly all the blue and red ribbons in their class wherever exhibited. The last contest for pre miums was at Galena last week, and the result was no exception to the general rule. Joshua commanded the sun to stand still in order that he might have more time in which to com plete the defeat of the enemies of Israel. In the battle with disease I we, too, must take every advantage of every means given to aid us in our contest. Mishler’s Herb Bitters is a potent agent against dyspepsia, ague, sick headache and kidney and liver complaints. It affords The Democrat a great deal of pleasure to record the fact that the Mineral Point Cornet Band carried ofl the second premium in the baud contest at the Galena fair last week. Five bands entered, the Dubuque band securing the first premium and our band the second. The members of our band left here on Wednesday and arrived home on Thursday noon. They report them selves highly pleased with the cour teous treatment accorded to them by the people of Galena, who were unstinted in praise of their excel lent playing. Mineral Point has good reason to be proud of her band. On Wednesday, Owen Roberts, of ; Mill Creek, while on his way to Dodgeville with team and buggy, thought he would have a smoke. He filled his pipe and puffed away, all at once there was an explosion, his pipe blew into atoms, he was struck on the cheek, blood trickled down, for an instant he was stuned and believed himself shot. Noticing that he did not die, he began to in vestigate, and found that in filling his pipe he had put into it ur.notic ed a 22 caliber cartridge, and when he fired up the cartridge fired off. The shell of the cartridge struck him on the cheek producing a slight wound. —Sun. From returns made to the secre tary of state’s office by the various county cleiks, it is shown that the acreage of tobacco in Wisconsin for the year 1885 is far in excess of any year, and nearly double that of 1884, the total number of acres for 85 being 29.260 against 15,835 for ’B4. Tobacco is raised in forty of the | sixty-five counties of the slate, the average acreage varying from one to 12,166. Dane county takes the lead, and Rock county ranks second in number of acres cultivated, the two ! counties producing about five-sixths jof the entire crop. The ’BS Wiscon sin crop is estimated at 100,000 I cases —Madison Democrat. P. J. Johnson, special agent for Purinton's Agricnltural Boiler and Feed Steamer, has been here for some time past, presenting to farmers and stockmen the merits of the article which he represents. He has made quite a number of sales to those who have tested the steamer. That there is a great saving in cook ing feed for stock is a fact admiPed by everv - body, and that the Purin ton Boiler and Feed Steamer will cook feed of all kinds readily and economically is also admitted by all who have seen it tried. It is sold at the low price of $25, and every person who has either a small or a large amount of stock to feed should buy one. State Veterinarian, V. T. Atkinson, I V. S., was in Dodgeville last Satur day, having been called to this part of the state for the purpose of in specting *some horses iu the town of Linden, suspected of having the glanders. He visited the farm of Geo. Baker, near the village of Edmund in the town of Linden, where he found four horses suffering from a disease which resembled in its symptoms the glanders, and yet other symptoms were present which would indicate a different disease. He instituted an experiment by which he expects in a short time to demonstrate to a certainty whether the disease is glanders or not, and if it prove to be, will take the nec essary steps to prevent its lurther spread.—Star.
