From "Frank Forrester's" Fie'd Sports.
From my childhood upward I have been
amongr dogs. My father kept a large
kennel of Pointers and Setters; from the
age of ten years I was among Fox-hounds.
I lived, up to my visiting the United States,
in Yorkshire, perhaps the most sporting
county in England ; and since I have been
a man, I never have been without one
dog, and much oftener have owned half
During this space of time, certainly not
ess than thirty-five years of clear and
comprehensive memory, I have never seen
a mad dog, nor heard an authenticated
instance of a dog being mad, though I
have seen hundreds knocked on the head
as mad, which were infinitely saner than
The consequence of this fact for a
act it is was, that for many years I was
a disbeliever, if not in the possibility of
canine madness at all, at least in the pos
sibility of its communication to any animals
but those of the canine race. And all
the deaths attributed to hydrophobia as
the disease is most absurdly misnamed
I assigned to tetanus lock jaw to in
flammatory disease arising from punctured
wounds, and a symtematic state of body
-to imagination and to terror.
Of these maladies, I am still well satis
fied that four fifths of the persons said to
die hydrophobous, are the victims, as well
as of malpractice in cutting and burning
Since studying Uayiine'8 Lanine Pa
thology, I am satisfied that I carried my
theory too far, and that the disease is
communicable to the human race, although
the disease, even in the dog, is unusual.
The ignorance concerning this malady,
the superstitious awe in which it is held,
the absurdly sanguinary laws, and the
popular mania for I can call it nothing
else existing m this country with regard
to that highly useful and excellent animal
the dog, which has been properly styled
the natural friend of man, have induced
me to spend considerable space to the
symptoms, treatment, ana diagnosis or
canine madness, both in the animal and
in the human being.
Canine madness, if taken in hand in
stantly, is a disease infinitely more under
the control of the mediciner, than half
the maladies to which we are liable
more so than malignant fever, for instance,
and more so than any serious inflamma
tion; if neglected until to late, it is fatal!
so are they. But had I my choice to
morrow, of being bitten by a certainly
rabid dog, or of an attack of violent bron
chitis, inflammation of the lungs or bowels,
or scarlet or typhus fevers, I would cer
tainly choose the dog. The remedy is
severe and painful, but it is at least in
fallible. t .
Hear now what Blane, a canine veteri
narian of the first order, says on the sub
ject. On the dog Mr. Blane is what Mr.
Abernathy, or Sir Astley Cooper, are on
the man, and his opinions are entitled to
the like respect.
Mr. Youatt coincides in the opinion that
rabies is produced by inoculation alone.
This statement alone, on such authority,
ought to go far towards allaying the pub
lic terrors on this subject, and to mitigat
ing the absurd ferocity of the laws an
nually passed by those everywhere on
earth most stupid, ignorant, -obstinate,
prejudiced and tyrannical of all bodies
I mean aldermanic corporations!
It may be held as a positive and estab
lished fact, that unless bitten by other
dogs, dogs never go mad. .
"The remote causes of spontaneous
rabies, us advocated by tho favorers of
that doctrine, are various. Heat has long
been considered as a grand agent, but the
direct proof to the contrary are fast wear
ing away this prejudice. It is known that
many countries under the torrid zone are
entirely free from canine madness; and
in such hot countries as it is found, it does
not appear that by the heat of the climate
it gains any accession to its frequency or
morbid character. We have Burrow's
authority for stating that is almost, if not
entirely, unknown over the vast continent
of South America. In many of the West
ern isles it is a stranger, and in Egypt,
Vojney says he never heard of it. Lar
rey, Brown and others, inform us that it
has never visited the burning clime cf
"The quality and quantity of the food
has been assigned as a cause of rabies ;
but in dogs which have been accidentally
subjected to a deprivation or tood, tor
dering upon starvation, it never yet took its reptiles ; and it is safe to presume that
place. Neither has repletion ever occa- more persons are bitten every year than
sioned it, although it has proved the in all other sections of the country com-
parent ol many oiuer iniiammaiory auec- Dined, me invariable "cure tnere is

to have no title to renerating it ; would fore this remedy was discovered th'e to

datory animals, whose stomachs must, by harsh a remedy, and, if taken in sufficient
nature, be forced to subsist on matter in quantities to overcome Doison. it is liable

Mr. Blane continues to discuss this point But in the whiskv cure there is no dancer.
at some length, learnedly and curiously There can-be no intoxication until the
no doubt, as the cogent question, also, poison V counteracted, no matter how
whether the disease arose spontaneously large the quantity administered, no more
at first in the dog, wolf, fox or jackal; than if water instead of spirits had been
but these questions, however curious or given. The certainty of this remedy
interesting, become merely matters of in- should throw all unreliable ones and

of practical utility by the positive dictum correct that what will cure the bite of

remarks concerning food, drink, climate, it reliability should suDercede all others

don't flatter yourself that Death will pass
your door on this account to knock at thai
