III.-RESPECTING EVILS TO BE REMEDIED.
The only disease at present among the animals is "scratches " and
a few cases of "scours," and some of the horses have vermin. For
scratches, wash clean and apply soft soap and grease; also, blue-
stone, copperas, white-lead, poke-root, and red-oak bark have been
used. For vermin a strong decoction of tobacco has proved effica-
cious, with sulphur given ini the food. The horses the past winter
have been severely affected with a severe and fatal distemper (now
not prevalent) strongly resembling glanders. Various remedies
were tried without success. The horses on exhibition of first symp-
toms were removed from the other horses, as the disease was very
contagious. Steps have been taken to procure a veterinary surgeon,
the want of whom is much felt. Failure of supplies were at times
reported up to February 12 (time about the present organization);
since then none have been reported. No officers are reported for
neglecting stable-calls, watering, or grooming. No improper use of
animals. A stringent order is in force in this regiment that Govern-
ment horses are not to be used only on Government business.
