Foot and Mouth Disease


SYDNEY. Saturday.

A stock Inspector enlivened the proceedings of the annual Conference of Stock Inspectors by recounting his experience in diagnosing what a stock owner called a new disease.

The inspector was urgently called to investigate a cow which the owner believed had foot-and-mouth disease.

The inspector found the cow was suffering from trouble in the mouth. His diagnosis was brief. The animal had been hit on the nose and had broken a tooth. He found that a horse had kicked the cow.

"The horse's foot and the cow's mouth — obviously "foot-and-mouth" disease!"
