Hog Cholera

--Speedy and Effectual Case. Tar and grease, mixed in equal proportion, is a certain antidote for this prevalent and fatal disease. The mode of treatment is as simple as the remedy itself. Catch the infected animal, turn it upon its back, gag it, and drench it with nearly a gill of the mixture. The effect is almost instantaneous. In a few hours the animal regains its appetite, and is seen busily engaged in quest of food.
