Effective Cure for Hog. Cholers.

--J. W. A. Sanford furnishes a Southern exchange with the following:

I desire through the medium of your columns to inform the public that tar and grease mixed in equal proportions are a certain antidote for this prevalent and hitherto fatal disease. The mode of treatment is as simple as the remedy itself. Catch the affected animal, turn it upon its back, gag it, and drench it with nearly a gill of the mixture.--The effect is almost instaneous. In a few hours the animal regains its appetite, and is seen busily engaged in quest of food. My stuck minder, with whom the practice originated, says, "if you can get the tar and grease in him, you can count him good for bacon." In more than twenty cases he succeeded in curing every one.
