J ue for the reason that they are
just about as much in the dark
about the causes and the remedy
for this disease as the farmers
who do not pretend to have any
scientific knowledge of diseases
The animals that have died
from this disease and have been
opened have been found, so far
as I can learn, without exception,
this mysterious disease that is | to lluve a o-reat number of worms

isn't worth $125, and if these 60
horses were worth an average of
that amount his losses during
that one fateful night amounted
It may be that this man could
afford to lose that amount and
not be seriously inconvenienced,
but whether he could or not, it
illustrates the uncertainty of
things here below. The man who
gets the impression that he is the
complete master of his own des-
tiny, or that he has or can acquire
an immortal cinch on things
worldly is apt to discover just
when he is most chesty just how
little be knows about the future
or what a single day may bring
Today he goes forth full of
wind and pride in his own strength
and smartness and tomorrow, to
use a slangful expression, he finds
that his name is Pants and that
even that cognomen should be
spelled with a small "p."
Of course, I do not mean by
this to discourage any person
from doing his best in a decent,
legitimate way to get ahead.
The man who keeps trying stands
a show to win the prizes of life
while the man who never tries is
doomed to certain failure, but I
want to impress 011 his mind that
E. A. Bartlett, a farmer who
lives southwest of Minneola, be-
lieves that he has saved the lives
of several of his horses by apply-
ing these remedies. It is possi-
ble, of course, that they did not
have the real disease or that they
might have recovered anyway,
but the pleasant fa<5i remains that
they are still alive.
I found that there is a differ-
ence of opinion about horses con-
tracting the disease from eating
grass. I was told of cases where
horses had died that were kept in
livery stables and had not run
out on pastures at all.
While it is not certain that
mules are immune from the dis-
ease it seems to be generally con-
ceded that they are not nearly so
subject to it as horses, which
seems to me to be a strong argu-
ment in favor of the mule. The
mule, in fact, does not appear to
be nearly so apt to contract any
of the diseases that afflict horses.
The mule is certainly as good a
work animal as the horse and
