Salttxttr in Cornstalks.
In "Bulletin 40" of the Kansas Ex
periment Station, Issued May, 1891, is
u report by Prof. Mayo of somo inter
esting and Important investigations
concerning tho poisoning ot cattle
from eating corn stalks unnaturally
loaded with pottassium nitrate, com
monly known as saltpeter. Not hav
ing over scon these observations given
to tho genoral public, through the agri
cultural press, It has occurred to the
writer that possibly a summary of
them might not bo without Interest to
Btookmon, as It may throw light on
somo possibly otherwise obscure cases
of cattlo poisoning, says Prof, W. A.
Henry In tho Breeder's Gazotto.
In this bulletin it is detailed how u
Kansas farmer grew corn on n place
ol lanu previously useu as h uug-iou
Some'stalkA ofctcorn so grown woro
thrown. ln"thomatfger of a bull con
fined In tho stable. After tho bull had
pieked over tho stalks (without ill re
sults) about four largo armfuls of them
woro taken out of tho manger and
thrown into tho barnyard, where thoy
were readily eaten by a drove of cattlo
i coming from the pasturo. Tho next
morning seven dead cattlo woro found
in tho yard, lying In positions which
indicated llttlo or no struggle before
k death. In another instance 40 cattlo
' out of a hunch of 120 died, after being
fed Jon cornstalks out nnd cured for
fodder corn In August. In theso cases
and a third ono, which Is reported, an
- examination of tho dried cornstalks
bowed thesa la be loaded with salt-
potor. On this Prof. Mayo writes:
"A casual examination of cornstalks
received, revealed the presence of
largo quantities of nit'nto of potash
(saltpeter). Beneath llio leaf sheath,'
which surrounds tho stalk just above
the joints, tho nitrata had orystalizod
in line white crystals which resembled
a white mold, but was easily rceog
uizod by tasting with tho tongue.
Around nnd in tho cut ends of tho
stalks were solid masses of almost
puro potassium nitrnto. If a .stalk
were cut in two and tapped lightly up
on a tablo, tho crystals of potassium
nitrnto would be jarred lonso and fall
ns a fino powder upon thn tablo. Up
on splitting a cornstalk the crystals in
the pith of the stalk could easily bo
seen with the unaided eye. Tho blttor
cooling taste, so characteristic of pot
assium nitrate could bo obtained by
placing a small bit o( tho stalk in tho
mouth. On lighting a bit of stalk
with a match it would dollngrato,
burning rapidly like the fuso of a lire-
cracker. A chemical examination of n
quantity of stalks gave 18.8 per cent of
tho dry weight of tho stalk nitrate of
In another instance, tho saltpeter in
tho dry stalks amounted to 25 per cent
of their weighv. It is certainly very
unusual for tho corn plant to take up
any such amount of this chemical as is
hero reported, but facts aro stubborn
things, aud It is well for tho stockman
to bo posted in this matter in order to
avert what might prove to be a similar
disaster. Corn which is grown on old
hog-lots or in corrals or other places
whero much manure has accumulated
is apparently most liablo to reach this
dangeroim condition, but one caso is
roported by the professor where there
socmen no apparent cause for such a
heavy loading up with the chemical.
Tests made by Prof. Mayo of feeding
potassium nitrate directly to cattle
showed Hint doses of from half a
pound to a little over a pound wero
capable of producing death with nni
mnls weighing from GOO to 1,200 pounds
each, From tho ohcmical examination
of the coriistalkH made, the professor
considers it entirely possible for thorn
to have contained enough of the chem
ical to have caused tho death of thn
animals as reported.
It is certainly must anomalous for
tho cornstalk to load itself with this
usually not too abundant fertilizing
constituent of the soil. Such cases
seem almost bejoud belief, but for the
present It is well to accept the state
ments as they stand nnd keep a closo
watch. The bulletin names no anti
dote for poisoning in cases like these.
Potassium nitrate is so rapidly soluble
and ho quickly absorbed by the system
that probably nothing cun bo done
after tho chemical In once in tho ani
