ignorant his district used quinine for the cure of rinderpest in cattle with excellent results created some what of a sensation in the agricul tonal and veterinary circles in dia and Ceylon says the Echo Mr Mukerji claimed no merit of the discovery which like most important events was the result of an accident A sanlal of Dumka who had been in the habit of buying quinine for fever from the local postmaster wished to know if the medicine was good for cattle The postmaster could not enlighten him but the was determined to try with strong primal knowledge Ibat what was good for man was good for beast He bought 40 grains and gave It to his cow few days afterward he reported cure Now it so happened tha the deputy magistrate of this out of the 5ca5 corner of Bengal is gentleman who went through special course of agriculture in the Sipur college and did so well that he eventually became Hol laud gold medallist of the Royal Agricultural college Cirencester and a fellow of the Highland and Agricultural society Mr Mukerji was naturally interested in the santalig experiment and proceedted to investigate found that the cow hits boon suf lentos from rinderpest and the quinine administered in the febrile stage of the disease effected complete cure He hastened to make the discovery public re planking very pertinently that if segregation injection of scrum or expensive medicines can all be avoided and rinderpest actually cured by two annas worth of quinine the benefit to time ountr will be incalculable In view the enormous cattle mortality virtuer of q as a b 4orouglily tested says
