-A friend to horses writes as follows to the; Farmers' Union : Take a strip of inuslin two inohss wide, dip it in nieltud beeswax, and wben sufficiently cool lay it on the bit and wrap it over 60 as to cover the bit. One tbickness of the inuslin on the bit is sufficient. If there is a joint in the middle of it, the saturated muslin must be in two pieces, leuving the joint i'ree. Beeswax is suoh a good non-conduotor that, with the above dressing, bits will not require warming in the coldest weather. A thread wound at eacb. end of the wrapping will better secure it from coming off. The above dressing will remain on, not only ;hrough the winter, but for a year or more if not 'taksn off intentionally.
