Glanders, Horse Disease, Is Communicable to Man Few equine diseases are commu­ nicable to man. Glanders is the most common one. Extensive out­ breaks occurred in the great armies of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries when, for the sake of a horse, a kingdom might be lost or won. Glanders is characterized by •ead to the lungs or intestines, bumans it may be deadly, though ulcers in the nose, which sometimes in hprses it tends to become chronic and not necessarily fatal, according to Victor G. Heiser, M. D., in CoN lier’s Weekly. ^ Another disease the horse shares with man is anthrax, although cat­ tle and sheep are far more subject to it. Direct contact is the only method of transmitting anthrax. But. once the soil where the animals have pastured is infected, it may remain so for years unless prompt steps are taken. In human beings anthrax begins as an inflamed pimple with a hard center and a gradually extending red zone, of inflammation around it. The enormous carbuncle, burning like a little coal, as the Greek deri­ vation of its name implies, extends into the deeper structure below the skin, far into the connective tissue. The patient is simply overwhelmed theI poisonsoisons andna thee highngn fever. p a m i ±evcx. Farmer George Washington, at the _inning ing 0 oped one of these on his leg and we beg of his first term, devel- almost lost ov^ first President. J^thrax has the distinction of be­ ing. the first bacillus to be definitely associated with the cause of a spe­ cific disease. It is easily stained and, because of its great size, was also one of the first in which the eat Koch recognized the reproduc- the little nucleoli in­ side } spores, i the bacilli plainly visible under the microscope. These spores will several years in a lence anthrax may be conveyed to human beings in aU industries using hair or hides. Prodigies in Musical World There are probably more prodi­ gies in the musical world,, and more that succeed, than in any other field. Most of the great composers were prodigies—^Handel, Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, for example. Franz Schubert had composed a symphony before he left school. The Belly River The Belly river rises in the north­ ern part of Glacier park, Montana; flows into Canada and joins the Bow river to form the South Saskatche- PETRIE’S HUNTING LICENSE REVOKED AFTER HEARING Revocation of the huuting license of John Petrie, involved October 17 in a fatality near Indian and Blue Moun­ tain Lake, was announced by the State Department of Conservation last week, Petrie, who resides near Albany, lost the eight to bunt for a period of ten years, the maximum time under a law enacted by the 1937 legislature. The department revoked the license because it said Petrie mistook a flapping towel for a deer’s tail, killed a man and wounded another. Maurice Conabs, Comstock, a Great Meadow prison guard, died, and Forrest Olden, Warrensburg, was wounded in the mishap. Petrie failed to appear for a hearing before Commissioner Lith- gow Osborne but was quoted as telling investigating officers that he saw a “white flash in the woods and fired twice at it. ” Hearing two cries, he said he investi­ gated and fonnd the dead and wounded men. The‘’white flash’’ was a towel flapping on a line outside of .the vic­ tim’s tent. ________________ Beagles “Singers\ of Dogdom Beagles are the “singers\ of dog-- dom. These merry little dogs are virtually vest pocket editions of a foxhound. Their main forte is trail­ ing and being equipped with a good scenting nose, they are used to seek the fas^flying. “Br’r Rabbit.\ Just as soon\ as a Beagle gets “on the line” of a cotton-tail, notes a writer in the Philadelphia Inquirer, he broadcasts his joy of the hunt w itt a throaty call, which devoted ad­ mirers of the hound describe as “clear as a bell.” The Beagle is built on compact lines. He is a durable little fellow and will himt tirelessly over a long period. Al­ though the Beagle is equipped with short running gear, his legs are strong. Due to his short coat of varied white, black and tan hues, he can penetrate thick brush in trailing a rabbit. First President of W. C. T. V. Frances Elizabeth Willard was born in Churchville, N. Y., in 1839. After some years ,as a teacher, she became secretary of the Women’s lerance Union in 1874, _ int in 1879. She was made first president of the World’s Women’s Christian Temperance Union in 1891.

She Was an editor of the Chi­ cago Post and the Union Signal and wrote “Glimpses of Fifty Years,” and numerous articles in the tem- peraiice cause. She died in 1898. Town <if Inlet, N. Y.

Mongoose of Weasel Family The mongoosev a slim-bodied creature about 18 inches long, be­ longs to the weasel family and has xall that beast’s bad habits. One point in the mongoose’s favor is that it kiUs snakes. In Itldia, it is a terror to cobras. It isn’t immime to the snake’s terrible poison, but is so lightning-like in movement the snak^ can rarely; strike it. Another reason the mongoose is occasional­ ly lauded is becaus^e it preys oil, r a ts.' To rid Jamaica of those pests mon­ gooses were introduced years ago. They destroyed the rats all right, but then started on the birds. That’s why a mongoose is rarely admitted to any laiid where it is not native.
