THE FARMERS' CIRCLE. (BY ONE WITHIN IT.) The farmers in East Eisex have given their labourers notice that their wages will be reduced next week, although in some cases the reduction will not actually take place until Michaelmas. Ploughmen, who are now getting 12s per week, are to be paid only 10s, and ordinarv labourers will have 9s. In a few instances, however, farmers will pay 10s. Already there are numbers of labourers out of work, and great distress is apprehended for the coming winter. Replying to Mr Jeffreys in the House of Commons 011 Tuesday, Mr H. Gladstone, on behalf of Mr Gardner, said that in the three we"ks ending September 2ud, the number of outbreftk, of anthrax reported had been eleven, eighteen, and thirteen respectively The enforcement of the Provisional Orders rested with the local authorities. The Board of Agriculture had addressed a circular to them, pointing out the nature of the disease and the best means of preventing its spread- ing. A leaflet had also been prepared for general circulation among stockholders, de- n scribing the sympfcnns cf the disease and the precautions to be taken. I'm allowed to kill both hairs and rabbits on my own place," pleaded Mr Henry Allison, of Elksley, Notts, farmer, before the magistrates at Jledford to which the reply was. So you are, but not on a Sun- day." Mr Allison, who, on the evidence of Ambrose Fieli, gamekeeper to Squire Hicksou, had been guilty of taking a hare which his dog had caught in his field, and putting it in his pocket, appears to have been considerably taken aback by this decision. It was presumptively based on the Act of William IV., which forbids "killing or taking game on Sunday or Christmas Dav, or using any dog, gun, net, or other engine or instrument for that purpose, under a penalty not exceeding £5." He was fined fifteen shillings including Cost s. Mr Robert Norman, farmer, Bushey, was summoned to the Mavleboue police court on Saturday for having supplied milk adul- terated with six or seven oer cent. of water. The evidence for the defence was to the effect that on receiving the complaints Mr Norman caused his cows to be milked in the presence of witnesses, and that still the Eamples showed the presence of water. Mr Frederick J. Lloyd, analytical chemist, said he had analysed samples taken straight from seventeen cows, and found them to contain about 8 per cent. of water. This he attri- buted to the hot weather and poor food having affected the cows. The magistrate dismissed the summons, observing that the water was not added." and that the defen- dant was not responsible for tho composi- tion of the milk. The inclusion of Captain Thomas in the newly-appointed Royal Agricultural Com- mission has given great satisfaction in Wales. An Arglesey correspondent writes: —" His (Captain Thomas's) appoin'ment on the Commission has given the greatest satisfaction to all classes of farmers, and I am able to say it would have been impossi- ble to have chosen a better or more suitable man. His father, who was a larg < and suc- cessful tenant fanner in this island, early initiated him into all branches of farming, and having been ever ilJco continuously t-u- gaged in it himsnf; his knowledge is thorough and prac ic *1, in proof of which he is regarded as a safe authority, and con- stantly consulted in agricultural matters. Since be has been agent for a landed estate he has shown every sympathy with the tenants, and worked much for them, and they have every confidence in him. His reputation, popularity, and high standing in his native county are undisputed and widespread. A PROLIFIC cow. There is at present at a farm in Llanwnog, called Tanrallt, in the possession of Edward Reynolds Hughes, Esq., a fine cow six years old last calving, which has brought forth eight calves. When 2-year-old she brought one; when 3-year-old, two; when 4-year- old, one; when 5-year-old, two; when 6-year-old, 2. The owner may well be proud of such a profitable animal. FERTILISERS' AND FEEDING STUFFS BILL. The much talked of Fertilisers' and Feeding Stuffs Bill which is now before the House of Lords, will, in all probability, come into force on the first day of 1894. The Bill in the amended form in which it is likely to be passed is a very great improvement upon the one introduced by Mr Gardner and others. In spite of the most determined efforts of tho authors ot the original Bill to rush it into law in toat form, the stronglv objec- tional parts have been effectively squashed, while several desirable additions have been introduced and accepted. The rejection of I the original Clause B was a particularly welcome alteration from the farmer's point of view, because with it is removed the loop- hole for the escape of dishonest retailers. Instead of being able to throw the responsi- bility upon the person from whom he bought a commodity proved to be inferior to the warranty under which it was sold, or to con- tain inj urious ingredients, the retailer under the amended Bill will simply have the same remedy against the wholesale man which the farmer has against the person from whom he buys. Some additions to the original draft are also valuable. Briefly described, the measure comprises the fol- lowing provisions in relation to the sale of manures and feeding stuffs :-A descriptive invoice is to be given on sale, which will have the force of a warranty; a description of a cattle food as composed of any particu- lar substance or substances will be regarded as a warranty that it is pure, and the sale of any such food will carry a warranty of its! suitability for feeding purposes failure to give the invoice required, or a false descrip- tion, or the sale of it feeding stuff containing any injurious constituents, or to which any worthless substance has been added, will render the seller liable to a fine, on summary conviction, provided that a certificate has been obt Lined from the Board of Agricul- ture by the prosecutor, stating that there was reas mable ground for prosecution, and provided that a person convicted may appeal to Quarter Sessions the Board of Agricul- ture is to appoint a chief analyst, and every County Council must, while any Borough Council may, appoint a district analyst; any buyer of a manure or feeding stuff, or the Council of a county or borough, or any asso- ciation authorised by the Board of Agricul- ture may have a sample analysed, and may enter a civil action againE-t the seller for breach of warranty, provided that the seller, if not satisfied with tue ana'ysis of a district analyst, may have a sample analysed by the J chief analyst.
ANTHRAX. The Board of Agriculture consider it desirable, in view of the recent increase in the number of outbreaks of anthrax, to publish the following observations: —Anth- rax is due to the entrance into the blood of a minute rod (bacillus), which is one of a large family of fungi, and grows from spores or seeds. Any substance which is brought on to a farm may act as a carrier of the infecting agent: fodder, litter, manure, whether from home or foreign sources, may contain the spores. A watercourse may carry the poison. In fact, the channel- through wh ch the infecting agent may I el conveyed to the susceptible animal are beyond calculation. Diseased animals dn; not transmit the infection to others in the ordinary way by association. The organism on which the disease depends must be intro- duced into the blood through a wound how- ever small, or an abrasion however slight, before the affection can be communicated, aud it may be said without exaggeration that the carcase of an animal, d-ad of anthrax, is more dangerous than the diseased animal was at any time during life. SYMPTOMS AND POST-MORTEM APPEARANCES OF ANTHRAX. In most cases the first sign of an outbreak of anthrax or splenic-fever is the discovery of a dead animal which was left a few hours before in apparent health at least there was nothing to attract attention, or give any warning of the approaching catastrophe. Occasionally, and in the case of sheep not uncommonly, there are certain premonitory symptoms of an attack of anthrax which can be recognised by an expert. The affected animal is dull, and disinclined to move. If one of a herd or flock is attacked the fact is indicated by the separation of the sick animll from tho rest. Close observa- tion will enable the observer to detect an occasional shiver, which seems to pass rapidly over the body, and then ceases. Sometimes a little blood is discharged from the nose and also with the fceces, and from time to time the animal will cease to feed, and stand with the head bent towards the ground. On closer inspection, especially in the case of swine, it will often be found th;tt there is a good deal of swelling under the throat, extending down the neck and the swollen part will at first be tender to the touch, and hot, but as the disease goes on it becomes insensitive, cold, and clammy. The shivering fits now become more frequent, ani perhaps, while these signs are being noted, the animal will suddenly roll over on its side, and, after a few violent struggles, expire. According to the severity and suddenness of the attack, the post. mortem appearances will vary in degree, but they ar' tolerably uniform in kind. Under the- skin there are usually patches of effused blood, and a considerable quantity of viscid serious fluid will be seen in those parts which were swollen during life. On opening the cavities of the chest and abdomen, some red serous fluid generally escapes. The spleen is enlarged to three or four times its proper size and is of a deep purple or black colour, soft and easily broken down, Effused blood is also found in masses unier the kidneys, and red patches are seen in various parts of the serous membranes. The lining membrane of the intestines i$ often congested, and the contents are gener- ally mixed with blood; sometimes, indeed, the intestinal canal is almost filled with this fluid The symptoms and post-mortem appearances which have been described may, as a rule, be accepted as evidence of the existence of anthrax. But when it is abso. lutely necessary to obtain proof of the pres- eace of the bacillus anthraois in the blood a drop of that fluid from the spleen or heart should be placed on a glass slide covered with a piece of thin glass, and examined with a magnifying power of at least 400 diameters. The thin rods will appear like short pieces of fine thread crossing each other in every direction, and enclosing the blood corpuscles. This examination may be conducted in the shed or pasture, but in the laboratory staining processes are employed. PROCEDURE. In the case of an outbreak, slaughter of animals affected with or supposed of anthrax should at one? be adopted without the shedding of blood, but in the majority of cases the diseased animals die too quickly to admit of the adoption of this measure. The healthy animals on the pasture or other place where the outbreak occurred should be moved under proper restrictions to a con-
MARVELLOUS RESULTS. If we said these things of ourselves the publil might well doubt, but never has a remedy received the unqualified endorsement as "Ho moeea" has received. We ask one and all to read these testimonials and ask themselves should they be without "Homocea" in theii homes. HOMOCEA VERSUS RHEUMATISM. Hillside, Bracknell, August 3, 1893. LADY KEANE's Compliments to the Manager, HOMOCEA COMPANY. Kindly send me two large boxes of your Homocea and six small ones, as I find it invaluable in Rheumatism, Cuts, Bruises, &c. I may say that since using it I have suffered very little—sometimes not at all-from Rheu- matic pains in the muscles of the neck. I think so highly of it that I recommend it to my friends, also I have distributed many of the boxes you sent me amongst the poor people, who are much pleased with it, and I think I can get them to take it to keep by them in case of accident, &c., with their children. My coachman was bitten by one of the horses in the arm, and it turned at once quite black; I made him rub some over the place, and it took away all the blackness and eased the pain. I also highly approve of it for stable use. You may make any use you like of this letter as a testimonial of its value. HOMOCEA VERSUS PILES, &e. Purland Chase, Ross, July 23,1893. Mrs. Harvey has just had three boxes of Homocea, and she gave some to her cook to gently rub on to her leg, quite a hard bunch of varicose veins, and painful—what she seems to have been troubled with for a year at least. The salve greatly softened the hardness, and quits eased the pain. Mrs. Harvey gave a box of the salve to a poor woman who was suffering from protruding piles, with all the accompanying giddiness, pains in the back, burning sensation at the pit of the stomach; she really looked terribly ill. In four days she wasn't the same person to look at, she seems to be nearly cured, and all the pain and giddiness, &e., &c., gone, except still a little paut in her back, which will no doubt quite leave her in a few days. Homoeea is sold by most chemists at Is. lid. and 2s. 9d. per box, or will be sent post free on receipt of stamps to ZL, HAMILTON SQ., RIRKKNHKAD.

THE SUMMEK OF 1818. A correspondent writes :—Although mpteorological soienti-ts have ransacked the records of most yea of the century to find a parallel for the late continued spell of drought, yet no reference has been made 10 the summer of 1818, which held almost uninterrupted sway throughout a whole year. In the early summer the season was so dry, mild, and funny that the cl mate of England was equal to that of the South o' France. In the month of August the air continued so hot and dry that the leaves fell from the tr,.e, as they do on cold gusty autumn day,. Throughout Europe the temperature was of the nioai remarkable nature, being almost equal in most latitudes, the thermometer of Reaumur standing at the sam- point at Rome, Vienna, Berlin, and Madrid. In England the summer was continued through the usual autumi and winter months. Thus in the mcnth of Novtmbei the narcissus was in full bloom throughout Hamp- shire and the southern counties. In many district, the extraordinary sound of the grass falling before the sweep of the mower's scythe was heard, and it, the corn fields wheat was seen coming into ear. The whole course of nature in the vegetable kingdom seemed entirely reversed, for in the county of Perth garden strawberries were actnally in full blossom, the berries of the arbutus were ripe, the buds of forest trees swelled, aud thise of the hazel bushes expanded. Tulips came out in leaf, and sweet peas and mignonette were luxuriantly in flower. Further north tulips were five inches above the ground in December, the flowers of the ten-week stocks and marigolds were as fresh and vigorous as in August. On Wanatead Flats, in Essex, the leaves of its famous lime-trees were fully expanded, snowdrops blossomed in profusion, and swallows still skimmed the roadways and fields. In Devonshire, at Appledore, the fruit growers gathered a second full-grown crop dapples, the trees having been in bloom when the first crop was gathered. In the neighbourhood of Plymouth anemones, hyacinths, jonquils, pinks, stocks, and monthly roses bloomed in great perfection, and rasp- berries ripened on the canes. Away in the fields and hedgerows, purple vetches, violets, and other tiowere blossomed, while the oak and the elm retained mosi of their foliage, the birds were heard as if in spring, and during the last week of this extraordinary month a robin's nest with four young ones was found in the thatch of a labourer's cottage at Remington, near Salisbury. In the first week of February bean plants were from tin to twelve inches high, with all their perfection of foliage, similar to what they are in June. The German tamarisk was in full bloom, and a few days later the blossoms of the erica herbuceu began to unfold. In Sweden and Norway there was neither frost nor snow, and in Russia great incon- venience was felt by that want of regular intercourse between om province and in >tti r whioti frost con- tributes so much to facilitate. Not only Mount St. Bernard, but Mount St. Gothard and the Simplon were crossed without oifficulty. In the opening days of February swallows were seen in the gardens of the Tuileries at Paris.

MANCHESTER, THURSDAY.—Trade has been quieter iurlDg tbe past week, wich little variation in valuee. At to-day a market there was a moderate consump- tive enquiry for most articles. English wheat was fi m at recent currencies. Foreign occasionally Id ,),reental dearer. Flour fully m inhined praviors atea. Oats wero slow, but nominally unohangpd. For beans and peas prices were rather against buyers. Maize has receded twopence since last Thursday. Prime American mixed quoted 43 2d per cental. LONDON' MONDAY.—Wheat: The car^o market is quiet, but in the asrsrregfate the tone is firm, with a good inquiry for Russian wheat. Values are nominally unchanged, and red American is held above the market. Maize i& excesaively slow, but holders are fairly steady. Barley is extremely quiet, and a shade weaker. Oats firm but quieter. At Mark Lane there was a good atten- dance and more demand for wheat. English new rop made rates fully Is. higher on the week. Foreign was 6d. and occasionally Is. dearer than on Monday last, and there was a good demand at the advaoo. Flour waa in moderate request, ind in some instances was harder to buy, but heavy supplies prevented any definite improve- ment in value. Maize was disappointing, and prices were not much better than on Mondny last. Barley was somewhat in sellers'favour, hut values show little change on the week. Oats firm at full prices. Beans firmly held. Peas quiet. CATTLE. LIVERPOOL, MONDA. Y.- The supply of cattle was larger, and of sheep smaller than last week. De- mand very slow for both cattle and sheep. Prices irregular, and in consequence of the coal strikes the tendency was in favour of buyers. Prices as follows:—Beef, first class, -lid.; second class, 5id 4 third class mutton 7d to 5d per lb, Live-weight cattle 35s. to 23s per cwt. At market 2,377 cattle and 12,912 sheep. LONDON. MONDA Y.-Tbe total imports of foreign stock into London last week amounted to 3,137 head. A quiet tone has characterised the cattle trade to-day. Supplies were about the average but as usual there was a scarcity of choice qual- ities. With reference to beasts the number offer- ing was not large. Business progressed quietly Really choice stock was scarce, and such was fair- ly steady in value; but secondary and inferior descriptions were irregular. The best Herefords and Devous made 4s 8d to 4s 10d., and heavy Lin- colns 4s Gel to 4s 8d, per 81b. The supply of sheep in the pens were moderate, though their condition was scarcely up to the average. A quiet demand prevailed throughout, and prices were about the same. DEAD MEAT. LONDON, MONDAY.—This morning supply was larger—far too heavy for the small demand—and the trade in consequence was bad. Prices varied considerably, very low rates being many instances accepted to • fleet a clearance. The trade closed extremely l ad, with a large quantity of meat of all iecii-ip' ions unsold. Inferior beef, 2s to 2s 8d.; middling ditto, 3d to 3s 6d.; prime ditto 3s 6d. to 4s Scotch ditto, 3s 8d to 4s. American Liver- pool killed, 3s 4d to 3s 6d.; ditto hindquarters, 3s 8d to 4" 4d.; ditto forequarters, 2s to 2s 4d English veal 3s 8d to 4s 4d.; Dutch ditto 3s to 4s. inferior mutton 2s 4d to 3s.; middling ditto, 3s 4d; to 4s prime ditto 4s to 4s 4d.; Scotch ditto, 4s to 4s Sd.; N< w Zealand ditto, 2s 2d to 2s 4d; large pork 3s id to 3s 8d.; small ditto, 4s 4d to 5s per 81b by the carcase. WOOL. BRADFORD, THURSDAY.—The partial stoppage of mills, owing to the coal famine, and the uncertainty a to the future, tend greatly to limit purchasers at our market to-day, but what trade is done is at late rites. Holders stick well to stocks and profess con- fidence. BRADFORD, MONDAY.—There is little change in the market here from last week. pinners are feeling the influence of the coal strike keenly, and in consequence their purchases are only of a retail character. Staplers, however, are by no menns depressed by the present condition of affairs, and are not anxious to lessen their stocks materially. They have every confidence that ere long there will be a change for the better, and as a result prices are kept firm. English wools are steady, and there has been a little more inquiry for mohair. Merino is also in a good position, while crossbreds are firm. LEICESTER, MONDAY.—The wool market is still quiet, but not more io than u ual on the eve of the London sales. Staplers are holding to stocks firmly from the knowledge that consumers have worked off large quantities of the raw material and will be buyers again when the trade of the aountry gets the turn from the present deadlock. In Botany and merino wools combers and spin- nera look for harder rates, while merchants can- not be induced to expect any improvement, and in numerous instances as regards hosiery they are trading on manufacturers' stocks almost entirely.

Ivenient place for isolation, and should be examined every day for a week. If a rise of temperature is discovered in any of the isolated animals it should be removed from the rest, and if further symptoms of anthrax develop, the animal should be immediately slaughtered and buried. Slaughter of healthy animals in contact is only justifiable under special circumstances, i.e., where the animals are fat and fit for the butcher, or when the animals are few in number and of little value, or the disease spreads rapidly and there are no means of proper isolation. Antiseptics, such as hyposulphite of soda, have been administered to the in.contact animals with apparent advantage, and some practical men are in favour of bleeding largely in cattle to the extent of four or five quarts. These measures should, however, ouly be carried out under the advice and direction of a veterinary surgeon, and with regard to these and other preventive mea- sures it may be said that it is impossible to determine the degree of efficacy which they possess, owing to the fact that anthrax fre- quently ceases after the loss of a few animals. inoculation on the system recommended by II. Pasteur could not be adopted except by an expert accustomed to operate, but the results of the operation when tried experi- mentally in this and some other countries have not been of such a nature as would warrant the Board in recommending it to stock owners as a means of dealing with out- breaks of anthrax. DISPOSAL OF CAKCASES. Carcases of animals that have died or been slaughted affected with anthrax should be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the Anthrax Order of 1892. The carcase of every animal that was at the time when it died or was slaughtered affected with anthrax shall be disposed of by the local authority. With a view to the execution of the provisions of the Article the local authority may make such Regulations as they think fit for prohibiting or regulating tho removal of any carcase, or for securing the burial or destruction of the same. Any method of destroying or disposing of the carcases which involves skinning or cutting up should be avoided, as the disease is likely to be spread thereby and, in addition, people engaged in such work run a very serious risk of being inoculated with the disease. CLEANSING AND DISINFECTION. Then follow the provisions of the Anthrax Order as regards the cleansing and disin- fection of premises in which cases of anthrax have occurred. In regard to the disinfection of fields and like places in which animals affected with anthrax have died or been slaughtered, there are serious difficulties which cannot be completely removed. A top dressing of lime is the most simple method which can be employed, and after a month or six weeks the lands may be restocked. But it must be understood that a certain degree of risk is incurred even after a much longer interval. and occasion- ally it has been found impossible to render contaminated land safe. In the majority of cases, however, the plan suggested will be effectual.
