Excerpt from Typhoid Fever: Or Contagious Influenza in the Horse Two other instances occurring at the same time, one in the stables of a well-known circus proprietor, who lost over 50 per cent. Of his stock from this disease; the number of animals kept in the stable was about 75; the other instance was of a carter, who was almost ruined by the ravages of this disease, losing nearly three-fourths of his animals.
Inoculation. - The contagious character of typhoid fever is now a well recognized fact, but up to the present time it has been a question as to whether or not typhoid fever was inocula ble. Experiments made with the disease, to prove its trans mission by inoculation, have by no means given satisfactory results. The experiments have been made by inoculating blood taken at the beginning of the disease, but the results up to the present time are not such as would enable us to say that the disease can be transmitted in this way.
