qulated for this statement by adding
10 2-3 per cent to tho butter fat as
shown by tbo Uabcocl: test as taken

ROUP AND ITS TREATMENT
An Xn-itrnctlrr niicim-ilnn of the Sub

Roup or r.vlan diphtheria may attack
UI varieties of tho domesticated fowls,
also cago nnd wild birds, Bays Dr.
Charles F. Dawson, vctcrlnnrlan of tho
Florida agricultural station. Tho char
acteristic tomptom Is the nppearaiico
upon tho lining membranes of fio
mouth and nose of peculiar yellowish
patches which resemble those present
Jn tho threats of children suffering
from diphtheria. These patches are
adherent to the parts upon which they
rett arid when stripped off causo a
raw, bleeding surface. In a few days
they become yellow, much thickened,
and iuterfcro with the breathing and
rrehcnslon of food. In oome cases tho
eye Is affected. The eyelids becomo
glued together, nnd tho material col
lects upon- tho front, off tho eyeball,
causing great bulging nnd final de
struction of tho eye. A peculiar nnu;.c
atlng odor accompanies the disease,
duo to the decomposition of, the pent
up ficeretlcus. Emuclatlon Is rapid
from tbo absorption of poisons formed
by tho disease process and tvom tho
Inability to cat. In some outbr.eu):n tho
.disease attaeka the intestines, result

weeks, according to Its being ncuto or
chronic in character. Some claim that
roup is the same as diphtheria In man.
If they are tho same disease, why can.
,we not find tho germ of diphtheria in

plcto renovation of tho henhouso by
'scraping tho floors, burning old nests, a
liberal coat of whitewash to nil wood
work and coating tho flooru with n lay
cr of lime. This Is to bo followed by
medicinal treatment of tho affected
ones. This should in part consist of
tho ubo of antiseptic waBhes for tho
nostrils, mouth and throat. Any of tho
following washes may bo used: A 2 per
cent solution of creolln applied to tho
parts with a brush; equnl parts of kero
sene nud olive oil or cottonseed oil;
boric acid, tif teen grains to tho ounce of
water. In applying any oue of tbeno
solutions first remove those portions of
the patches which can bo detached

Tho following wnsh is recommended
by Salmon: DIssolvo thirty-five grains
of cblornto of potassium and two
grains of salicylic acid In one ounce of
water and add ono ounce of glycerin.
Apply this liquid to the spots two or
three times a day, nud give a teaspoon
ful of tho mixture internally to each
fowl. Great relief is afforded the fowhi
by fumigation. Place the fowls In a
, tight building and pour oil of tnr on n
uui ufiwu. nvvu ui iron or a nuuvei. i'u
this twice dally.
The tumors which form on the head

externally n mixture of 150 gram
of n decoction of walnut leaves (fifteen
grams to a quart of water) with twenty

salicylic acid In fifteen grams of recti

in addition to using any of the above
treatments the birds should be given
soft food, nud In cnses whore they can
not eat the ftwd should be given ly

stimulating tonic, the following belnn
recommended: Cayenne pepper, sul-
phute of quinine, sulphate of Iron, of
each oue dr.im. Mix and add a little
honey or sirup as an exclplent nnd di

each fowl one pill three times n day.
Convalescent fowls should not bo re
