Tuberculosis In Cows.
The most common disease of coves
is that known as tuberculosis, more
commonly reccgnized by the popular
term, consumption. inis common
name is given to this disease from
the fact that the various vital organs
Implicated are gradually consume
oy a germ ,nai lives at tne expense
oi tiie tissue, and changes It into
degraded, cheesy, dead matts-r, which
being gathered into small or larger
knots or tubercles, jrivos reason for
the scientific name of the disease
It is a common belief that this dis
ease affects only the luii're of an aci
uial or a person. The truth is quite
otnerwise. it may invado any par
of tho body; tho lungs, or their
serous covering, the pleurae, by
which not only the lungs but the
whole cavity of the chest is covered,
and which is a frequent seat of dis
ease: the membrane supporting th
bowels, (tho mesentery), the coats
of the bowels, the throat, the spleen,,
the aver, t!ie pancreas, the kidneys
the ovarieri, sometime? the muscles.
and frequently the soft ends of the
bones. In female animals tho mam
mary glandn, the udder, as it is com
monly known is a frequent seat of
Cattle are more subject to this dis
ease than other animals, writes
Henry Stuart in Colman's Rural
Woild. Sheep and swine are the
next in order of subjection, and
fowls follow after these, but theiio
last mentioned rarely suffer except
irom infection by swallowing the
ejected matter from tho patients of
hospitals of persons diseased In pri
vate houses that has been thrown
out where tho fowls can pick it up.
Tho use of the milk of tuberculosed
cows, especially when the udder or
the ovaries are the seat of the dis
ease, has been the" most effective
means of communication. And it
has been observed with the utmost
Interest by statisticians and physi
cians tnat tne deaths of Infants by
consumption have been greatly in
creased since the more general adop
lion oi cow s milk: for their food.
There are some cows that seem to
have a natural predisposition to tu
berculosis. This is due, doubtless.
to Inherited conditions, by which
these pocuiiar features have been
caused, such as tho' Ions lec-s. the
narrow chest, the thin, long neck.
narrow forohoad, and the semi-trans
lucent cars, with a sllrry softness of
the hair and thinness of tho skin, all
of theso denoting weakness of consti
tution. And with these there is a
copious flow of milk, thin and bluish
in Jcoloi and poor in fats. Such an
animal having any local inflammation
set up from whatever cause becomes
the easy subject of attack and the
ready victim to the best. This nat
ural predisposition may bo sot in ac
tion by var ious causes that are com
mon to dairies either not well man
aged or carried on under a method by
which the cows are over-stimulated
by high feeding to procure increased
product. The system gives way un
der either condition, and the disease
attacks the herd in tho most insid
ious manner. Thus the hisrh-bred
cows, bred too closely, bo that a weak
constitution is inherited, as well as
the town slop fed herds, in their
wretched, noisome stables, fall vic
tims to the disease.
The first symptoms of the disease
are easily apparent Indeed, soma
of the worst cases have occurred in
dairies where the owner could
scarcely be convinced of tho truth of

As to excite suspicion Dy any one

differences of this kind.
i here is no use in treatment, as
the animal is worthless for any pur
posa Its progeny will inherit tho
disease, its flesh is not fit for food,
the milk is poison, its very breath
and discharge from tho nostrils will
communicate the disease to other
animals, and if it could be saved the
usefulness of it is quite destroyed
for the future. The only thing to bo
lone is to avert the diseaso by time
ly precautions. o animal exhibit

and tho elegant, slender, deer-like
form is to be discarded for the more
robust, if not so handsome, animal
whose healthfulness is apparent
2so doubt, tho fortunately now dis
carded habit of choosing breeding
animals for color or figure has had
much to do with the present prev
alence of this disease among
tho Jerseys, who seem to
bo almost the sole victims
to this veritable pestilence. Tho cf
fective measures taken by tho agri
cultural department for tho mitiga
tion and eradication of tho old-timo
decimating disease, plouro-pnou-
monia, have been crowned by re

maiKauio success, una ino same
measures to eradicate this equally
destructive disease might ho applied,
doubtless with the same invaluable
result. And this well deserves tho
greater attention on account of tho
imminence oi tne infection amono-
unguarded porsons, and especially
the helpless infants whose lives are
destroyed by tho uso of tho infected
food. It Is a fact well known to and
authoritatively declared by experts
that the death rate amonar these
helpless infants has been trebled
since the introduction of the widely
used but deadly milk bottle. The
entire immunity of theso infants may
be secured by general use of tho
sterilizing apparatus recommended
by the United States ' dt partraent of
agriculture. This simple precaution

Artichokes for Ho;.
I would like to give my brother
farmers a few items of my experience
with artichokes. I have grown the
white Jerusalem artichoke for three
years and would not try to run my
farm without them. La6t summer
when tho crops were cut short by tho
drought and everything drying up,
my artichokes were green and thrifty
and continued to crow until frost.
They are a largo tuberous rooted
vegetable which are lust cominar into
favor for stock feed, and for
hogs aro excellent as the crop
Is so easily handied. In tho
fall when the stalks are dry tho hogs
can bo turned to fatten and finish
up with a little corn. The tubers
that remain in the ground will come
up the next spring and produce tho
next crop without any tnoro planting
or cultivating. No umount of freez-
ng in the ground Injures them, and
always leave an acre or two for
spring use. Here 1 turn my hogs to
fatten for spring market and finish
them rvith a little corn, l'lowed out 1
and pittod in tho fall, they aro ex
cellent to feed cows, calves and colts
urmg the winter. Six bushels will
plant an acre, and one acre in good
soil will yield from eight hundred to
one thousand bushels. Plant, any
time in April.

SHOOK FISTS IN THE HOUSE.
Messrs. Meredith and Fonk llarel Aert
m I'eraonavl Collialon.
Yashixoto!. March 5. The house
yesterday entered upon the considera
tion of appropriation bills. The forti
fication bill, carrying something- over
rJ.OOO.OOO, passed and then the pen
sion appropriations was taken up.
This bill usually leads to considerable
display of political feeling, and yes
terday was no exception. An alterca
tion occurred between Mr. Meredith
of Virginia and Mr. Funk of Illinois
over tho former's attempt to prove
there were many fraudulent pensions
on the rolls which almost resulted in
a personal collision. Mr. Meredith,
who was the aggressor, rushed over to
the place where Mr. Funk was stand
ing and shook his fist in the latter'
face. Hot words were spoken, but
friends Interfered, and the speaker
restored order before any blows were
Mr. O'Neill of Massachusetts,
in charge of the measure, explained
its provisions. The bill carried
for t he fiscal year ending June 30, 18!I0,
c!4,5l'j,330 less than the bill last year.
The original estimate for the coining'
fiscal year was f 1(12,000,000, but it had
leen revised and cut down later bv
Commissioner Lochren. Mr. O'Neill
argued that while the appropriations
for pensions might waver for a few
years, the maxims of pensions ap
propriations had been passed, and
thereafter there would be a material
reduction in the amount needed for
pensions. There were on the rolls in
1HU3 1m5,0I3 pensioners. The annual
increase ins been steadily declining.
The first year after the act of Ihuo
140,000 hud been added to the rolls;
the second year.. 100.000: the third
,-erir, uo.ooo. Mr. O'Neill took occas
on, in the course of his speech, to de
fend tho course of Commissioner
Lochren. In reply to inquiries ho
believed the amount carried by the
bill would meet the demands for all
