"One form of illness to which the work horse is subject occurs so often just following the Sunday rest that it is popularly known as 'Monday morning said Doctor McCampbell. "This trouble is noted most frequently in those cases where horses are working hard, require heavy feeding, and are given the regula feed on Sunday while they remain idle in the barn.

Before reading the stanzas, the poet paid an introductory tribute to the flag as follows "It may seem a late day in which to attempt a tribute 'to our glorious old flag, the Stars and Stripes; but that it is an ever newer glory in our eyes and an ever clearer rapture in our hearts. The coming generations of its patriot followers, high and low, can but lift to it continuous voices of applause- and benediction. Master orators may eulogize it till no further thrill of speech seems left with which to fitly glorify it, or poets may sing its praise till their song seems one with the music of the ripples of the breezes in, its silken folds; but no tribute-voice of forum, harp or clarion may well hold mute the one all-universal voice that breaks, with cheers and tears at every newer sight of our nation's hallowed emblem the old flag.

He has heard its flutterings, like light laughter, in the lull of noonday battle; and, worn with agony, above the surgeon's tent, that all is well. Yea, and in death the sacred banner has enfolded him, even as a mother's fond caress.

Cattle can do very nicely without these parasites, but the parasites cannot live without their hosts. These parasites are the larvae of the heel fly. This fly is about one-hnlf inch long and looks something like a small black bee.

The flies pester cattle during the summer months and deposit their eggs on the hair around the heels and hind legs. flies are unable to bite, but cattle are instinctively afraid of them, and will run with their tails high in the air, to the nearest water hole, when they approach. The eggs are taken into the stomach by cattle licking themselves, and there they hatch and the tiny larvae migrate through the body to their favorite habitat.
