J If practicable, hum the pasture

the cattle look carefully for any ticks

of the body, and il any are found,
pick them off and burn. The grease
nay be one part kerosene and two
parts any cheap sort convenient, such
as cuttuu seed oil. If a little sulphur
and tar he added the effect will be
prolonged and increased. The grease
prevents young ticks from getting on
the cattle and kills those already on
by plugging the small openings in the
body through which they breathe.
II the greasing and hand-picking be
done thoroughly and no ticks allowed
to drop in the pastures, lanes or lots
for four or five months duiiug the
warm season, the eff.it t will be suc
cessful, Either of the first two methods,
when it can be adopted, is always cer
tain to exterminate the ticks; but the
third is not applicable to large herds,
and will fail unless it is carefully and
thoroughly carried out,
