Stranele* in Hontts. The French Government has spent about L2Q.000 in demonstrating the value of a new serum for 'strangles' In horses. The Pasteur Institute, the first military veterinary experts, and . „. medical men have been employed with . a view to arriving at the exact value of this new serum, discovered by Pro fessor Dossonvllle.

As SO per cent, of horses suffer from this highly infectious malady of respiratory organs the importance of discovering a cure was recognised by the French authorities.
