The disease known as Blackleg in cattle, although entirely unknown in many extensive agricultural sections of Canada ami not at all widci spread j in nny district or province, annually | causes rjuite ext.-nslve losses to cattle raisers. Anthrax, which is quite n different disease, although (nnpient ly confused with Hlucklpg in the n>inds of many cattle raisers, is also the cause of serious loss of Mock. Tltc fornkT disease is altmisl entin>-ly confined to cattlo under l\ years and is generally fatal. Tho latter attacks other classes of farm animals nnd the human sirhject is not exempt from- Its infectlim which generally I results seriously. | lly the aid of science cattle raisers J aro now enabled to protect their Htock against these maladies. As the human family is vaccinated against smallpox, in the soma manner cattle nre rendered immune from Blackleg and Anthrax. The Department of Agriculture at Ottawa through the Health of Animals Branch is now in a position to supply preventive vac cine 1or each of these diseases at the nominal cost of flvo oonts per dose. I'ntil, recently, by speciul nr rangemont with extensive mnnnfac tuners in tho United States, these products were secured at a reduced cost, and were placed in the ho mis of Canadian cattle at ten cents per dose for nincklcg vncclno nnd four toon cents per dose for Anthrax vac cine.
