The Other Cow's Case to be Settled by Microscopical JExarnination of Diseased Tissue—Surprising Revelations. THE FINAL TEST. Prof. Baker, of tbe Chicago Veterinary College, on Monday conducted a post toortetn examination of five of Mr. Lund's condemned cows to ascertain whether they were affected with tuberculosis. The examination disclosed the presence of tuberculosis in four of the live cows, while in the fifth a dis« eased gland was reserved for subsequent microscopical examination to determine its condition. In the other four the presence of the disease was beyond dispute. Prof. Baker came out here at Mr. Lund's solicitation, and those who were present at the post mortem speak in high terms of his conduct of the examination. He did very thorough work, inspecting every vital organ and scrutinizing every part where the disease might be secreted. There were present during the examination Doctors Garfield, McCoy, Keneflck and Stull of the Algona medical profession, and the interested lay spectators were C. C. Chubb, W. K. Ferguson, W. L. Joslyn and E. H. Clarke. Dr. Sayers, Deputy State Veterinarian, who assisted Dr. Niles in applying, the tuberculin test, was present during the examination of all but the first. THE DETAILED RECORD. The first animal killed was a cow fourteen year old, very poor, and with a big bunch on one knee. The animal showed every appearance of having some wasting disease, but she proved to be the soundest of tiie lot, passed the best examination, showing that dependence cannot be placed on outward appearances, even in cows. Everybody looked to see a tuberculous deposit tapped at the big knee, but investigation showed nothing there beyond the evidence, of a fall • or 'wyeiich ' of " the joint, leading to enlargement. Three ulcerous patches were, hower, found on the windpipe, and Prof .Baker sliced off several sections of the ulceration to put under his microscope, as the nature of the disease could not be made out by the naked eye. The tubercul- ous baccilus averages about one-half of the size of the little red corpuscle in the blood, and that is figured roughly at one thirty-five hundredtbs of an inch. Hence the microscope of highest magnifying power is requisite for the test except in cases where the disease has changed the . appearance of the gland or organ, itself, as was the fact in the case of every other affected animal. . THE SECOND TEST. For the second test Mr. Lund selected a cow in fair condition, but the animal was found to be diseased, and the tuberculous condition we 1 ! developed, but confined to tbe mediastinal lymphatic gland, underneath the breast bone, the gland being diseased nearly throughout, and of cheesy condition and appearance. All the other organs were sound and healthy. There was no reason to reject the milk or tiie meat for beef. Professor Baker said the animal would probably pass the inspection of the United States examiners at Chicago and be sold for beef, The same general fact was stated witU respect loajl the animals examined. The inspectors would, the Professor said, throw out the diseased parts, and pass those not affected, The disease was confined strictly to the parts, sometimes by a calcareous shell, and go localized, COW NUSPUER THREE, third, cow that went on the <Jis» secting table was a very fine, fatan4 sleek flyeTyear'Old grade Durham, There was not a handsomer animal in tbe lot, nor one other which, would not sooner be suspected of disease, Only Jarge Jy^pliatio glan«J was to' be Diseased, ap4 that' was 84 Hlo'og $lje Qutsi4e of. the ww4p,ipe ' was perfectly walle4 in and. iaoJate'4 a condition sal suppurating,, to be latent, buj it parts, Jo ;.tl»e, ppge n$ teen years old, and rated good. She Was the worst specimen of the lot. The Mammary lymphatic gland, along the adder were enlarged and showed cheesy and calcareous degeneration. Each king contained a nest of tubercules, each about the size of a cherry, all in a cretaceous stage. There was no ulcer- atidfi in the lungs. This cow was neatest the danger point. The udder was not itself diseased, but there would be Bd telling W lien it might be. THE FIFTH SUBJECT. last test was made on a five- yeaiMold grade Durham in good condition. Everything was found to be sound but one bronchial lymphatic gland, which showed cheesy and calcareous degeneration. Professor linker advises Mr. Lund to fatten the condemned cows and ship them in to Chicago as condemned cattle, They will then undergo inspection, and probably will pass and be sold for beef. It is understood that Mr. L'und will do this. BANCROFT SENTIMENT. The Register: The grand jury has recommended to the judge that the county jail be condemned as unfit for occupancy and urges the necessity of better quarters. The place is said to be "recking with stench" and insecure for the sate detention of prisoners. If this be the case steps should at once be taken to secure a jail structure in harmony with great Kossuth's ability to enact and maintain such. We keep "egg noodles."
