ers. Ilia statement is alarming and
should result in measures of pro
tection of cattle owners and boards
of health. Indeed every board of
supervisors should take this impor
tant matter in hand, as the diseases
now In the state among cattle arc
fatal to man. Mr. A. S. Mercer, the
agent of the bureau of animal indus
try, and Dr. Thos. Bowhill, M. It. C.
V. S., have visited Cholame valley,
where 000 caltlo out of a
herd of 1200, belonging to Mr. Urcen
of San Juan, died in thirty days.
The remainder are probably dead by
this time. The disease ctittitiK olF
so many of this and other herds In
that valley, is the Texas fever.
Other diseases equally fatal to beast
and man prevail there as well as in
other places visited. Many are
effected with tuberculosis and nc
tinomykasls or "big-jaw." Cattle
were found tlyluir by the dozen of
these diseases and of anthrax at
Gonzales where a largo number of
Spanish families are engaged pre
paiing jerked beef for market and
where last year fourteen of their
children died of putrid soro throat
or a peculiar type of diptheria caused
by eating anthrax meat. The
inspector refers to the historical
fact Of 00,000 of the pcopje of Naples
dying in 1017 through using the
JIchIi of animals diseased with an
thrax, and for centuries this disease
has had fatal etteet upon the popu
lation of Europe, numbers having
been poisoned with the flesh of
diseased animals. The state board of
health and the board of health of
San Fruuulsco havo had the subject
under discussion and havoappointed
inspectors of markets, slock, and

A M I iiDi, k aged, respectable look

Ilerr Kill), tho German savant, in a
work rocHntly published, shows that there
was a totil eclipiu of the moon concom
itantly with tho eartliquako that occur
red when Julius Caesar was assassinated,
on the I fUli of March, 1) C. 44. He has
also calculated the Jewish calendar to A.
D, 41, andtho result of his researches ful
ly confirms thn (acts recorded li the Evan
flints of thu Hondcitul physical events
that accompanied iliucrucilixion. Astrou
0111ic.1l calculations provo, without a shad
ow of doubt, that on the 14th day of tho
Jewish inoiiti JS'isin (April 6,) there was
a total Lclipse of the sun, which was ac
companied in all probability by tho earth
quake, "when the veil of tho Tvinplo wis
rent horn tho top to the liuittun, and the
oarlh did qu.i'.c, and die rock rent."
(Mutt, xxxn, 01.) St. I.uUo describes the
euiipae 111 these werds: "And it was the
sixth hour (12 noon), and ihoie was dark

(3 p. 111,) and the sun was darkened. (I. tike

Hut are our children being

with temptation which surely
comes to all? Are the sceds'of truth,

is sot in army by the boy whose 'cat
