TREATMENT FOR CAULK
.WOUNDS IN HORSES When horses are sharp shod and the now Is deep eonditlona are Just right for caulk wounds at the crown of tup hoof. Remove caulks or shoes, If sharp, .before slartiu? a team out In dK?i snow, says Dr. M. II. Reynolds, Uni versity farm, St. Paul, Minn. , A caulk wound should be thoroughly cleaned ut once. Contaminations should then be preveuted. Nothing additional In the way of washing or other treat ment that is not uctually necessary should be done, adds Dr. Reynolds. Cleanliness at the very beginning of treatment may be secured oither by long continued irrigation or Injections with a mild antiseptic, such as com mon salt a teaspoonful to a quart of water. Military surgeons have found during the present war that a table spoonful of chlorinated lime to a quart of, warm water, applied thoroughly twice a day to every part of the wound, ; Is very satisfactory for this prelimi nary cleansing. Either one should be ap plied continuously to every part of the wound for at least an hour before the wound is considered thoroughly and safely clean. Strong disinfectants may also be used. These give quicker results and are In some cases more practical. Hy drochloric acid or even nltrohydro chloric acid may be used for the first treatment provided it is applied to every part of the torn surface In the depth of the wound and provided the The undesirable qualities Inherit ed from the grade sire may not show up in the first generation, but the worst feature Is that they will continue 4o show up for several gen? eratlona after. The valuo of a pure bred Is fundamentally based on the ability of the animal to transmit the desirable characteristics. The horse shown Is a grade sired by a pure bred Belgian. skin Is not burned with it. Undiluted carbolic acid or tincture of iodine in full strength may also be used. Two or three thorough treatments with the Iodine should be given the first day. riugs of cotton may be soaked In the tincture of . iodine and packed In the wound. ' After 'hii first thorough treatment use n drying antiseptic powder com posed of iodoform, tannic acid and bo raclc.acid, equal parts by bulk, apply ing lightly three times a day. Rut it is of the utmost importance to keep such a wound out of mud and filth. A stockman attempting to treat a wound of this kind will usually do bet Ut to avoid bandaging. THEY WERE ALL INSANE. Even the Expert Witneos Himself Must Have Been Pretty Mad. Dr. Allen McLane Hamilton, in his "Recollections of an Alienist," relates In an Italian murder trial In which he appeared for the state: The defense was based on the shape of the murderer's head, and much tes timony had been given by an anthro pologist and cranlologist in regard to the shortness of the head of the man on trial. ' So improbable was the testimony of the head "expert" that Dr. Hamilton, during the noon recess, went to a hat ter and secured several cenformateur tracings, which he gave to the district attorney. "Doctor, extreme length of the head is also a stigma of insanity. Is it net?" asked the district attorney. The quack assented. The district attorney sbowed him the tracings and asked his opinion of them. The fellow examined them auJ declared that the persons from whom they were taken were undoubtedly In sane. "Well," said his merciless cross ex examiner, "would it surprise you to know that the first series were taken from the heads of William II. Vander bilt and his sons and that tbe last is from tbe head of his honor the Judge who presides in this case?" It goes without saying that the wit ness "expert" testimony was prompt ly ruled out. 8inister Goodwin Sands. Seven miles at sea from Broadstairs. tbe seaside resort on the southeast coast of England, lie the Goodwin sands of sinister record in maritime wreck annals and by tradition suppos ed once to have been an island, Lomca. in tbe estate vl Earl Goodwin, and to have been destroyed by the sea in tbe eleventh century. Lambarde, a skep tical English chronicler, however, dis putes this legend, a he does also an other which tells of the earl's choking himself with a morsel of bread be cause he had said, "May this bread choke me If I caused my brother's death," when, in point of fact, be had procured IL . A lightship has been maintained on Goodwin sands since 1705, but marine disasters still occur there, and some times even in clear weather.-Natlonol GeotfraDhk- Society Rullctin. Fromf ir ' Preparedness . Board. r Lan A.AMieh.. May T,f. "From what I iavc' learned since becoming a mcmuer or the war Preparedness Board," said State Treasurer Samuel Odell, who is one of the stato offic ials that will handle the affairs of Michigan soldiers and sailors and their dependents, "I believe that the man who enlists quickly serves not only himself but his country and his state twice as well as if he delayed. "A big response to the call to the colors will prove to our Allies that we are with them to tbe limit, and to our enemies that tho richest nation on the globe, the richest in men in munitions, is arrayed solidly against them. "Men who get in early, in the Na tional Guard units already organized, have chance to see more service and more interesting service than if they go in later. The National Guard, hardened by months on the border, is ready, and is likely to bo sent any where and sent very soon. Recruits to such organizations will have, a bet ter chance to learn markmanship and the other elements of soldiering than they would later in new organiza tions. "Another important point to be considered is that recruits to .Nation al Guard companies will be with men from their home towns, in many in stances. "The big reason is that the gov ernment needs men and needs them now. If he has made up his mind to get into the service there is no rea son for delaying an hour." Exposing Children to "Children's Diseases." Mothers of young children are urged against exposing their child ren to the so-called "baby" diseases. At this season, whooping-cough and measles are responsible for much illness among the children. Mothers dometimcs unwisely and purposely allow their children to become ex posed to these diseases under the im pression that they are only trivial. Both measles and whooping-cough cause many deaths and are not to be regarded lightly. Even though your child may not suffer serious after af fects, it may expose some other child which may not recover. Health offi cers are required by law and the Rules and Regulations of the State Board of Health to quarantine child ren suffering from these highly con tagious diseases. In the office of the State Board of Health will be found pamphlets .upon measles and whoop ing-cough which may be obtained by addressing the Secretary, State Board of Health, at Lansing. TRAINING TO BE A PAGE. Strenuous Work For Youths of German Nobility. One day, as I was sauntering through the park of Castle K., I noticed Man fred, a ten-year-old boy. standing bolt upright under a tree. I wondered what be was doing at tbe time, and on seeing the poor little fellow still there when I returned some time later I ask ed the reason. "Why. he's golug.tbrough his stand ing drill," answered Ms sister, Freda, "lie began with standing twenty min utes. Now he Is so far along he can stand almost au hour and a half. Dut he's got to reach two hours. He's to be a page, you know." At Trusslan court functions later I sometimes recalled this scene, for the lads that are so picturesque in their theatrically pretty costumes suffer tbe chance of falling Into swoons while standing at their posts behind the chairs of the royal princesses, posts at which It Is their duty to stand up right and motionless during the long progress of courts, receptions, concerts, and the like. During an evening concert I saw on one occasion four pages faint and fall hi succession, their bodies being re moved swiftly and unobtrusively by lackeys hovering in tbe background, while reserve pages stepped Into the vacant post.
