  1. Local Cures.
    Murrain in Cattle.
    Red murrain in cattle may be cured in the following way:-
    Give a pound of coarse salt dissolved in a pint of buttermilk as soon as possible after the beast is noticed.
    Another cure for murrain is to give a pound of Epsom salts, two ozs of ginger, two ozs of cream o tarter and a half glass of turpentine all mixed together in about a quart of lukewarm water.
