ous bacteria were found but the bacil-
lim anthraala waa not preaent The
horaea affected were In the majority of
rae heavy draft horses from the lum
ber camps. These anlmala were brought
from the woods la the spring, usually
lu good condition, and turned out to
pasture. Moat of them were fed grain
7. bile on pasture. On the farm of
M. C. F. Keynolda. Hay ward. Wis., over
seventy horses have died during the
paat four years from thla peculiar mal
ady. The paature contained about 4i0
arrra, 300 acre of which had been
broken and seeded to timothy.
Adjoining thla waa 100 acres of
"slahlnga." or land from which the
tlrn Ur had been cut but which had
never been broken. Thla was thickly
covered with golden-rod. On one aide
of the farm la a lake with clean
gravel bottom and shore. The lake la
fed by aprlnga. There lu no marsh or
low land on the farm. I'pon Investiga
tion I became convinced that the cauae
of the trouble waa to be found either
In (he food or water and watched the
horaea rlorely for several daya and aaw
thew eating the golden-rod greedily

teeming to prefer the plant to anything
else. 1 alo vlalted the farm of I'eter j
Truai, near an Clair. There la no
go!.lcn-rod to be found on this farm and
the disease has not made lu appear
ance. During the past summer Mr.
Truai placed ten horses In paature near
by where the plant waa plentiful and
eight of them dlej during the summer
and the remaining two are affected.
When the healthy horses are taken
from the paature In the fall the disease
disappears. None of the animals at
tacked by the malady has recovered,
and medicinal treatment doea not seem
to produce any beneficial effecL The
appetite remalna fairly good during the
rutire course of the dlnease. Death
takes place In from two weeks to two
mouths from the onset. I am fully
convinced that this dWea e Is due either
to tome poisonous principle in the plant
or dome parasitic fungus upon the sur
face of the same. It la no too late In
the son for any Investigation to be
carried on In this direction thla year,
tut I intend to have the matter thor
