Tuberculosis In towls is uot new to
Ontario, and it is becoming annually
more widespread. This entails a serious loss lo tho poultry industry ot
the province and lhc Dominion. Thc
control of this disease in fowls Is
therefore a problem ol considerate
economic  itnportnncc.
The bulletin under con-iderntioo Is
issued to spread Information on the
subject, and it gitee valuable suggestions lm   itH control.
In liml a fowl from Knderby, British Columbia, was reeeiviil at Ottawa, and another Irom Renfrew were
examined.    In      both  cases  the    dis-
egse tuberculosis—was found well
advanced.   Since      thin      date,   fowls

poorly lighted, poorly ventilated
houses; insufficient or unwholesome
lood, errors in building, tbe present-.
of mites, all these are accessory causes. They tend to lower the natural
vigor ot thc fowl, resisting power is
diminished and susceptibility to attack increased; but, be it remembered, liclore thc disease itself can cc-
cur, the germ must gain a foothold
in the body of thc bird.
In fowls—as in man nml other animals—the disease is slow nnd insidious in its progress. It may exist
sometimes iu a flock without detrc -
tion. Therefore it should be closely
watched for. It is not like some
other contagious diseases—the louses
esperially at first, are only occasional. The farmer, unfortunately, pays
small attention to the lose of i bird
here and there, and then and COW,
nnd It is nol until frequent deaths,
coming with some regularity, make
him look for a cause and week a rem
edy. By this time—by the time the
farmer's eyes nre open lo danger —
