the importance of improving the
public roads as a means of increasing

HISTORY, SYMPTOMS AND TREATMENT
OF THE CATTLE ENZOOTIC.
To the Commissioners of the
North Carotiua State Board of Agri
culture, I beg leave to submit the
The-objeet of this report is to give
the history,"symptonis, and treatment
of the recent cattle enzootic at Salis
bury, During the week of August 5th,
Ambrose Chunu found ; that two
cows and a steer of his that using
in a meadow on the creek about two
miles froni Salisbury were sick. He
did not kijow what was the matter,
but on investigation he found that
the creek, swelled by former lains,
had left is banks, coverings a largeJ
part of the meadow. xfter his tem
porary rainy eeason, when the creek
assumed is norm il size, small ponds
of water were left in many places.
These pools soon became stagnant
and foul.' Fiom these the animals
obtained drinking water. They were
at once taken from the low-land and
carried to higher quarters, and given
pure watfr. Thanks to some nurs
ing and strong constitution, one
cow recofered. Thu si-er and on
A few miles up the creek, under
similar conditions, were ; pastured a
herd, the property of Dr. Murray.
The firstthing.to call attention to
this herq was the death of one dur
ing the veek of August 12rh. The
cattle were immediately moved to' a
higher location, where good air and
water was plentiful. One other from
this herd died, but several giving un
mistakable symptoms of the same,
The third meadow was near town,
in fact, a few hundred yards from
the hotel, but in the opposite direc
tion. Through this section runs a
stream that sadly needs attention.
Into this open stream " empty the
sewer from the hotel, the sewer from
the jail, the depot sewer, the wastes
from a tannery, a brewery, and a gas
house, the excreta of a hundred or
more employees of a tobacco factory,
and the draining from numberless
surface closets. As this was
foulest Water, so here was the great
est mortality. During the week of
Augustj 10th, the first loss of cattle
was in this pasture. Sixteen died,
four will probably recover. Of these
four, three had drinking water be
fore gor'iig to past srea the rooming
also on return at night. This pro
bably Recounts for the comparative
mildness of the attacks.
