WE shrink from writing upon this subject, for we are not an M.D., and we only give our views upon and treatment of a few of the most fatal diseases, that we have had occasion to deal with. We believe in prevention, and when fowls are sick, in extermination, more than in doctoring. When fowls have their liberty they are seldom ill, and when they are confined, if we are careful to furnish a good supply of vegetable food, health generally attends them. In most of the fatal diseases there is a poisonous fungus growth in the blood. Fowls never perspire, and the heart beats one hundred and fifty times per minute. The evils that are easily thrown off by perspiration with them have to be exhaled by respiration, and as a result we find the scat of nearly all the fatal diseases to be in the head, throat and lungs. Rapid respiration and circulation therefore become necessary to expel the vapory excretions. The chanticleer of the farm-yard whose liberty is not proscribed will have a battle every week and not seem the worse for it, while in a similar instance one kept in a poorly ventilated house, and fed upon unwholesome food, will suffer from inflammation and canker, and in very many cases death will follow.
