The conversation soon turned upon the treatment of horses, when our re porter remarked: "Do you ever use Humphrey 's Homeopathic Veterinary Specifics with your stock?" “Yes," was the cheerful response, “we use them altogether; but 1 must confess that we did not fully appreciate their virtues until two years ago when "pink eye” and pneumonia became epidemic in our stables. Then they proved just the thing every time. Would you believe it, not an animal was lost, while those around us lost a great many by using old school reme dies.” Believe it," returned the re porter, "of course I believe it since J have heard hundreds of Veterinaries say the same thing.”—Exchange.
