chronic form, in an acute form or at
tacking the lymphatic glands in the
form of farcy. In the early stages it
is often difficult to recognize, espec
ially in the chronic form. One of the
first symptoms noticed is, a discharge
from one or both nostrils. At first
the discharge is thin, sticky and often
resembles linseed oil, it dries about
the nostrils making it appear smaller
than usual. As the disease progresses
the discharge becomes more profuse,
thicker, yellowish in color and some
times streaked , with blood. The mu
cous membrane lining;the noso, espec
ially on the partition between the
nasal chambers, becomes ulcerated.
The ulcers are raw, depressed in flic
center with reddish edges. In some
cases the ulcers may perforate the
partition between the nostrils. In se
vere cases the mucous membrane of
the nose becomes bluish or slate col
or instead of healthy pink. The lym
phatic glands beneath the jaw usually
enlarge, are firm to the touch and of
ten seem grown to the bone. These
glands rarely gather and break as
they do in distemper. As the disease
progresses the animal falls away in
flesh, gets out of condition and the
coat looks bad. In severe cases there
is often excessive discharge of urine.
When the disease attacks the lym
phatic glands of the body it is called
farcy. It is most frequently seen in
the region of the hind legs, but may
occur anywhere on the body. It usu
ally begins with firm lumps forming
betaeath the skin that may attain the
size of a hickory nut or larger and
often occur in a string up and down
the inside hind leg on the course of
the large lymphatic vessels. These
enlarged glands are commonly called
farcy "buds." They often break and
discharge an amber colored fluid that
dries upon the hair. These sores do
not heal readily and often show a
tendency to spread.
Glanders and farcy are practically
incurable and all diseased animals
should be destroyed and burned or
buried deeply. In doubtful cases the
disease can be recognized by injecting
mallein (a chemical product of the
glanders germ). If the horse has the
disease there will be a rise of temper
ature of two degrees or more with a
well defined swelling at the point of
injection. All suspected animals
should be carefully isolated from oth
ers and watered and fed from separate
receptacles. Infected quarters should
be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected
by removing and burning all litter
and similar material. Stalls, mangers
and feed boxes, neck yokes, etc.,
should be cleaned and scrubbed with
5 per cent, solution of carbolic acid in
water and when dried, should be
white-washed or painted. Equipment
that cannot be burned can be disin
fected by boiling for one hour. Per
sons caring for glandered horses
should be careful not to contract the
disease. N. S. MAYO,
