Corn and Cob Meal for horses.
One of the editors of the Michigan Farmer
has been experimenting on corn and cob meal,
as horse feed, for a couple of months,exclusively,
and with the following results. After one
month's feeding, febrile symptoms were occa
sionally observed in one of the horses, such as
short and quick breathing &c.
On stating the ease to Dr. Dadd, the skill
ful veterinary surgeon of Boston, it elicited tlie
following valuable letter. The importance of
occasional change of food which it recommends,
is not sufficiently attended to by our farmers in I
feeding their stock.
" As regards your horse, I would (if he is !
no better) change the diet immediately. He I
is probably suffering from acute, or perhaps j
chronic indigestion, which is very apt to occur 1
in animals when kept too long on one kind of '
No fact in dietics is better established!
than that of the impossibility of long sustain-j
ing health, or even life on one kind of diet.—
It fails to support nutrition. (See Liebigand
Carpenter.) The animals experimented upon,
after a certain length of time, seemed willing
to endure starvation rather than live on one
kind of diet. As regards the adult horse, 1
however, lie will exist for some time on highly
nutritous articles, such as oats, barley, corn
meal, Ac., but they finally induce febrile
diseases such as lo mi nit is (inflammation of the
foot,) rheumatism, founders, &c. They do not
require so much of the flesh-marking principle
as the young and growing animal, which not
only requires sufficient carbon in the form of
food to remove the tissues, but also enough for
growth and development.
The adult, however, requires a greater variety
of food than the latter, to support the integrity
of his organization, consequently as you have
fed your horse on cam and cub meal all winter,
there may be a disproportion between the
amount of carbon, (in the form of food,) and
the oxygen respired, hence his digestion must
be deranged, or carbon in the form of fat, is
deposited in the various tissues.
A fat horse, of course you are aware, is not
the one for fast work nor fatigue, and, the
emaciated excepted, is more likely to become
sick, from the least exciting cause.
On the other hand, an excess of carbonace
ous material deranging the stomach—it hold
ing sympathetic relation with the brain—is
npt to terminate in staggers, Ac. It should
be known to horsemen that an adult horse
ought not to increase in weight from year to
year ; the food may be proportioned to work,
any increase of flesh, or fat, is a signal to dip
a lighter hand into the meal bag ; that is, if
you want to keep disease and death at bay.
It pays to fatten cattle, sheep and swine, be
cause the result, is dollars and cents, but yon
may depend that it is losing a spec to fatten
horses ; for among such I have the most
practice, their disease being more difficult to
control than when occurring in others, in fair
As regards corn and cob meal, I think it
operates injuriously on a great many horses.
In the first place they do not always masti-!
eate it properly, it being soft and easily in
salivated, they are apt to belt it, as the saying
is, it then runs into fermentation, resulting in
flatulent or spasmodic cholie.
In order to obviate the difficulty, the meal
ought to be mixed with cut hay or straw,
articles that must be masticated ere swallowed. !
Should the digestive organs be deranged, meal j
ferments very rapidly, inducing flatulency.
I shold not object to giving a horse a feed
of corn and cob meal occasionally, mixing it I
with cut hay and a Little salt. Salt is a good |
antiseptic—prevents fermentation—affords l>v 1
the decomposition in the stomaee muriatic acid j
and soda : aids digestion and prevents the
generation of worms.
Acin PHOSPHATE OF LIME. — It is some years
since this salt was proposed as a manure, and
repeated trials since that time have fully dem
onstrated its efficiency. The simplest method
of preparation it is as follows : Bones are :
thrown into heaps, where they soften by ferment
ation. Tliev are then covered with half their
weight of water in wood or stone vats, and
half their weight of oil of vitriol added. The
whole passes into a pasty state in the course of
eight or ten days, when it is mixed with earth,
charcoal, or saw-dust, to render it pulverulent.
If it be required to apply the salt in a fluid
state to laud, the paste is diluted with 100-
200 times its bulk of water.
To DESTROY* RED ANTS. — A correspondent
of the Southern Cultivator contributes the
following method for destroyintcr the above
named insects ;—Procure a large sponge, wash
it well ; press it very dry ; by so doing it will
leave the small cells open— lay it An the shelf
where they are most troublesome, sprinkle some
Cue white sugar out lie sponge (lightly over it ;)
two or three times a day, take a bucket of hot
water to where the sponge is, carefully drop
the sponge in the scalding water, and you will
slay them by the thousands, and soon rid the
houseof these troublesome insects. When you
squeeze the sponge, you will he astonished" at
number which have gone in the cells."
KEEP FRUIT TREES STRAIGHT. —Trees in an
open exposure often acquire a leaning position
from the prevailing winds. This should not be
suffered beyond a certain stage of the tree.—
When as large as one's wrist they should he
set up erect, and, indeed, thrown into the wind
at an angle of ten or fifteen degrees ; in order
to bring them ultimately into a straight position.
This is best done by obtaining crotched limbs
from the woods, eight to twelve feet long, and
placing the but end, which should be sharpened,
on the ground, and the crotch and either
against the trunk, immediately beneath branch
ing point, or against a large outer limb, if
more convenient, securing it from chafing in
the crotch, by a padding of straw, or litter, and
setting the tree up at once to the desired angle
of elevation. Loosen, also the ground on the
windward side of the root so that it will not
bind, and the work is accomplished. Let this
be done when the tree begins to make its
summer growth, or soou after leafing out.
One season, if the tree is thrifty, will be all
that is required. If, however, it be obstinate
repeat the trial another year. The remedy is
sure. Even large trees, which haveacquircda
permanent lean, may be thrown into an erect
posture, by loosening the earth at the root, and
occasionally cutting off an obstinate large root,
without injury to its growth, and thus be made
sightly. An erect tree will be longer lived
and more lruitful than a leaning one, and not
half so subject to casualty if i e f t to its own

DR. 11ALSEYS' FOREST WINE.—Tlie
discovery of the FOREST WINK i- the greatest bles
sing of tlie age. l'ut up in Quart Bottles, a single bottle
of which does more good, and goes further in the cure of
Disease, than ton bottles of any Sarsaparilla in use, and
warranted to cure without an unpleasant or weakening
The method by which all Sarssap trillas.and other simi
lar medicines are prepared, is by boiling the Hoots of plants
to obtain the extracts. Their mcdi inal virtues are thus
principally evaporated and destroyed.
It is not to be wondered at then, that 10 and even 20
Isittles of these Sarsaparillas arc sometimes taken without
any perceptible lienctit. Not so with the forest Wine.—
By the invention of a wonderful chemical apparatus,a per
fect wine is produced without heating ; retaining, at the
same time, all the primitive healing properties of the rare
medicinal plants ot which it is composed, thus rendering
the Forest Wine the most efficient inediciue the world ever
produced, at the same time time the most agreeable.
This is to certify, that I have used Dr. Halsey's Forest
Wine in iny family with the most entire success." My wife
was badly afflicted with Neuralgia, affections of the Spine
and Kidneys, and general Debility. She found speedy re
lief, and regained her health by the use of the Forest
From my own knowledge of this excellent medicine, I
confidently recommend it for the good of ethers who may
be suffering from sinnlar complaints. It is the liest medi
cine with which I am acquainted, and those who are afflic
ted with the above, or any similar disease, mav safely re
ly on its virtues. K. G. MUSSEY.
MOID: TESTIMONY FROM COHOES.
DR. G. W. IIAI.SKV—Dear Sir : My wife last autumn was
reduced to a low state of Debility. My family physician
advised her to take your Forest Wine. Accordingly I
went to Mr. Terry's, your agent in this town, and procur
ed a bottle of it, which restored her itt a very short time
to perfect health.

DR. HAI.SKY: Hempstead, Dee. 1.1847.
A bottle of your Forest Wine and box of Pills. which
I procured of .Tames Carr, (your agent for this place.) has
done wonders for me. i had been in a state of decline for
more than a: year, afflicted with a dreadful cough, pain
in the breast, general debility, and loss of appetite. I be
came almost a skeleton, and had been unable to leave my
mom for more than two months; my friends tohi me I
had the Consumption and despaired of my recovery. 1
could not obtain any permanent relief from any medicine
I had taken, or mv pliysieian, until your Wine and l'ills
were procured. The lirst dose of the Pills brought up from
my stomach. much phlem and greenish matter, and my
st-ools were perfectly black. I then commenced taking
your Forest Wine three times a day, my appetite began to
return immediately, my cough left me. and in less than
two weeks I was almost well. 1 now enjoy better health
than 1 ever did before, having increased twenty-five pounds
in seven weeks. Your Forest Wine and Pills are higlilv
valued in this vicinity, and I owe my recovery entirely to
their virtues. Yours, respectfully,
AFFECTIONS OF THE KIDNEYS.

Dr. G. W. HALBEY : New-York, March 12,1853.
Dear Sir—ln the summer and fall of last vcar 1 had a
severe complaint of the Kidneys, which rendered me finite
unfit for business. I procured" your Forest Wine and Pills
which cured me in a few weeks time, and I have since en
joyed better health than I had for many vears previously.
From their efficacy in my OAUI case, and from what I know
your medicines to have done for others, 1 aiu induced to
recommend them as the best medicines with which I am
acquainted. Yours, respectfully,
T. J GILLIES.
There arc thonsands cured cverv year of this disease by
the Forest Wine and Pills; Dyspepsia. Costiveness and
Indigestion, are kindred complaints, frequently existing
together, and the cure of one is generally the cure of all.
The Forest Wine and Pills above all remedies are pre-emi
nent in the cure of Dyspepsia.
Testimony of J. N. Vermile, of New York City, dated
July 9, 183'j.
Dr. G. W. lIALBEY :—Dear Sir—Having been cured of
Dyspepsia by the use of your Forest Wine and Pills, 1 take
tiie liberty to offer you my name,'.believing many who
know me may be benefited by my excellent remedies—
For many years I have liccn afflictedwith this malady so
bably that nearly one-third of my time has been lost from
business. The Forest Wine and*Piils have restored me to
excellent health, and I cheerfully recommend them, as I
au convinced the discovery of the remedies are a bles
