Editors: Roup is one of those diseases which can be guarded against much easier than it can be cured, for after it once obtains a foothold on a farm the germs remain in the soil for months, and desperate measures often have to be resorted to before it is finally stamped out. The term roup is an expansive one and embraces scrofula,diphtheria and consumption, and treatment depends to a large extent upon the exact na ture of the disease and the foothold it has obtained. In virulent cases the entire premises should be disinfected two or three times, drenching the houses, floors,roosts, ground, etc. .with a mixture made of 1 pound each of copperas and bluestone, dissolved^in ten gallons of hot water, then adding a gill of sulphuric acid. Then to unmistakably stamp out the disease, it is a good idea to kill all the birds and get absolutely healthy ones in their places, for the labor of handling sick birds is too costly when the whole flock is attacked. A bird that comes from some other place should not be kept an hour If it shows even the slightest indication of disease, for it is impossible to tell the nature of the disease until it fully develops, and it may then be too late if it is of a contagious char acter. Roup is one of the most dreaded of diseases. It is sometimes spoken of as the winter disease. The symp toms are hoarse breathing, swelled eyes, discharge at the nostrils and sometimes a fetid breath. Treatment after certain stages are never satis factory, and the bird had better be killed and buried deep. If a fowl catches cold or shows any sign of the symptoms indicated, Immerse its head in kerosene oil for a moment A mixture of kerosene and olive oil, half and half, is less harsh in its ef fect upon the eyes. This mixture may be injected by means of a squirt can or syringe into the nostrils and mouth. Peroxide of hydrogen and water, equal parts, may be used in the same way. Another treatment is to coop the sick bird or birds in a warm coop and give each a teaspoonful of epsom salts and wash the bead daily with strong salt water; continue this for a week and give daily a two grain capsule of quinine. Keep the birds housed until completely cured. Feei on soft food with beef scrap or cot tonseed meal. If they are unable t< see to eat. feed by hand three tim<* daily. At this season of the year roup is the plague of the Southeri poultryman’8 life. UNCLE JO. BEE KEEPING FOR FARMERS. XXIV.—Some Point* to Remember. In bee keeping, as in everything else, there are many points thaC must be constantly kept in mind. The first is that you can’t become a successful bee keeper without work. You must be on the lookout con stantly in order to see that every thing is done Just at the right time. Just now the great point of solic itation with bee keepers is to give plenty of room for surplus honey, ripen the product, take off supers, and to close out the season. After all the surplus honey is off and the bees are closed down into the brood chamber, of course, care must be taken to see that the combs contain a plenty of stores for the winter. If there are not enough and the honey flow is at an end, recourse must be had to feeding. Every hive should go into the winter with a good strong colony of bees. In the North swarms sometimes come out during the buckwheat flow late In the season. A similar ex perience may be had In the South during some late flow like that of asters and goldenrods. Late swarms rarely succeed, but sometimes we have an exception. I think It was the 10th of September, that a Ten nessee bee keeper once told me he had a swarm to come out and yet It lived and did well the next year. Such cases are the exception and often It takes a good lot of feed to bring them through. While the results may be essenti ally the same, bee keepers vary In cheir practice about ripening honey and taking off supers. Some take out the Individual sections as they are filled and put new ones In their places. Others consider this too much trouble, and wait to take off the entire super when It Is full or practically so. Sometimes they are taken off even before all the cells are capped on the outer rows, for, if wo wait for all to be completed, they say, the bees will track over the flrst fillori nsrtlnm nnH tholr uill injured by a lack of snowy white ness. Other keepers, again, will tier up supers one on top of another and leave the bees to fill out empty cells at leisure and the honey to ripen in the same way. And still again, some keepers will take ofT their supers and cull out all the filled sections, while incompleted ones they put back for the bees yet to complete. In taking off supers full of honey, there is no better way of getting rid of the bees than by fixing a Porter bee escape in the center of a honey board and introducing the same un der the super about sundown. With proper management, the bees will all go down through the escape during the night and leave the super free to be taken off without further trouble In the morning. T. C. KARNS.
