Aiuscle was fast receding, notes the
Ohio State Journal. But he got well
and sound again by attending safely to
bis relaxation. Insomnia was his
greatest trouble, and when he went to
bed it was to toss and bob around in
mind and body until he fell into a
restless sleep. lie cured this by re
laxation. That is, by yielding his body
to the gentle pressure of bed and pil
lew and not trying to hold himself up
by nervous exertion. It is the old doc
trine of power through repose, a love

The trouble Is one soon forgets the re
laxation, and so tries to practice it
that he is apt to fall Into a contor

Idea. He resorts to the will power,
while the real secret is a resort to the
moral power, which means falling un

SCALY LEG USUALLY FOUND AMONG OLD FOWLS.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
In spite of precautions, diseases and
disorders may Invade the most sani
tary chicken yard. - In most Instances
it is not practicable to attempt to cure
one or two sick fowls, for even though
they are apparently cured, their value
as producers or breeders will be less
ened, or the disease may reappear and
endanger other fowls. It is advisable
to attempt to cure only when the dis
ease is common throughout the flock,
or In case of a fowl which is very val
uable, and an effective cure seems
In addition to keeping the poultry
house, drinking fountains, hopper, and
surroundin'gs clean and sanitary, dis
ease outbreaks should be prevented
from spreading by the Immediate re
moval of fowls showing signs of dis
ease. An antiseptic such as potassium
permanganate should then be given
in the drinking water of the fowls, as
described below, under the treatment
of roup. The house and equipment
should then be cleaned thoroughly and
sprayed with a ten per cent solution
of crude carbolic acid or some coal
tar product in water.
Usually a fowl that Is not well can
be detected by the fact that It is not
as active as the others, stands around
in an out-of-the-way place, and shows
little disposition to eat. Remove such
a fowl from the flock at once and If
It is seriously sick It should be killed
and the carcass burned rather than
Roup Is a highly contagious disease,
spreading from one bird to another
very quickly. The disease is very
common in the fall, especially In poor
ly ventilated, damp houses.
Treatment. Remove the sick bird
to a warm, well-ventilated room that
is free from drafts. Syringe' the nos
trils, by means of a medicine dropper,
with a solution of one teaspoonful of
common salt to a quart of water The
eyes may be bathed gently with the
same solution. Grease around the nos
trils and eyes with pure or carbolated
vaseline. Dissolve in each gallon of
drinking water , as much potassium
permanganate as will remain on the
surface of a dime. The flock should
have no other drinking water than
that containing potassium permangan
ate. It is good practice to use potas
sium permanganate in the drinking
water as a preventive as soon as the
cool weather begins in the fall.
This disease causes cheese-like
patches to form in the membrane of
the mouth and tongue.
Treatment Sprinkle a little sul
phur in the mouth and throat of the
bird. Another effective treatment con
sists of washing the sore patches with
a mixture of equal parts of hydrogen
peroxide and water.
This is probably one of the worst
diseases that affect poultry, for it
spreads rapidly and in most cases the
cure Is unsatisfactory. The usual
symptoms of cholera are as follows:
The fowl is troubled with diarrhea,
the droppings become watery and yel
low or green in color; the fowl is de
pressed; the feathers ruffled; and the
comb Is either very pale or very dark.
Fowls affected with cholera usually
have A great thirst but poor appetite.
Frequently many so-called eases of
cholera are fcimply diarrhea. Fowls
having cholera usually die within 30
Treatment The mo.st satisfactory
method of combating this disease Is to
kill and burn all fowls that are really
affected. Clean and spray all water
fountains and the house thoroughly
with a ten per cent solution of car
bolic acid and water or one of the
coal-tar products and water. The
droppings should either be buried
deep, burned, or sprayed with the
above solution. .
Thl3 disease is characterized by the
fact that the fowl's neck is limp and
cannot hold the hesd erect. The dis
DISEASES OF POULTRY
ease Is a form of food poisoning, and
is caused by the fowl's feeding on de
composed animal flesh.
Treatment. Two teaspoonfuls of
castor oil given to the fowls will some
times cure them. In all cases an ef
fort 6hould be made to find the cause
of the disease, which is usually a dead
animal or fowl that has decomposed
and is being eaten by the birds. All
carcasses should be deeply buried or
burned when found.
Chicken Pox, or Sore Head.
This is a very contagious , disease
that occurs In all classes of poultry.
It may be told by the yellow patches
or nodules that appear about the beak,
face and comb.
Treatment Cover the sore patches
with carbolated vaseline, or If this Is
not effective, apply a touch of Iodine.
Diarrhea in Hens.
Diarrhea is usually caused by a
lhange in the quantity of food, exces
sive green or meat food, and very hot
weather. One of the best cures is to
deprive the fowl of all green or meat
foods, and wet mashes, and feed a dry
mash and grain feed. A teaspoonful
of castor oil or sweet oil, with five
drops of oil of turpentine added, will
frequently check the trouble.
This is probably the most dreaded
of chicken diseases, It being very con
tagious and fatal in Its results. It
can easily be told by the fact that
the chicks tend to droop their wings,
are sleepy In appearance, and show lit
tle or no desire to eat ; assume almost
a ball shape; and the whitish-brown
droppings adhere to the vent and fluff,
causing them to become "pasted 'up."
Treatment. Chicks that have reach
ed the advanced stages of this disease
should be removed, killed and burned,
This trouble is due to the presence
of small worms that have attached
themselves to the Inside of the chick's
windpipe. The characteristic symp
tom is the frequent gaping of the
chick In its effort to expel the worms.
Treatment. Due to the fact that
gapewonns are usually found on the
ground that has been used for som!
time as a range for poultry, the best
remedy is to remove the chicks to a
new range. The ground 'so Infested
should be thoroughly limed and plow
ed and not used for young chicks for
at least two seasons. As an Individ
ual treatment the worms can ofttimes
be removed by means of a looped
horsehair. Good results have been ob
tained by adding 15 grains of sali
cylic acid to each quart of drinking
This disorder Is caused by the crop
becoming overloaded with feed to such
an extent that the muscular walls be
come partly paralyzed and thus unable
to work off tlje accumulated food. The
trouble can be told by the fact that
the crop is hard and firm and pro
Treatment Ordinarily this trouble
can be overcome by pouring half an
ounce of melted lard or sweet oil down
the throat and working the crop with
the hand, so as to allow the oil or lard
to mix with the feed. When this is
done, the food will usually pass away
In a few hours.
This Is more frequently found among
old fowls and is caused by small mites
that burrow under the scales of the
shanks and feet and there multiply in
Treatment. Most often kerosene
applied to the fowl's legs and feet will
be found au effective remedy.
Bumble foot is caused by bruises
forming on the bottom of the feet,
usually due to the fowls juinpmg from
high roosts to a hard floor. To re
move cause, lower the roosts. When
the foot is badly swollen, a small cut
should be made with a clean, sharp
knife, and the pus removed. Wash
the wound with equal parts of hydro
gen peroxide and water, grease with
vaseline, and bandage with a piece of
