eight mile Spring station, half way to
Benton, and a blinding snow storm

was drawing slowly along, about
twenty miles north of Spring station.
During all this time he had wandered
on the priarie in nearly a circle, picket
ing the horse and camping out at
night. His feet were badly frozen,
but it is believed not seriously. The

Mr. Shipley tells us of p disease
which has wovked disastrously among
the cattle and hogs of farmers in In

taken suddenly and generally die in
their tracks. By a post-njortem exami
nation of two steers it iva3 found that
the entire system, intestines, organs,
arteries and veins, were in a general
;ate of congestion. It is to be hoped
the disease may be prevented from
spreading any further. The report of

agricultural department, on the so
called hog cholera which has been af

boring states, indicates that the disease
is not cholera at all, but a form of
