A letter I'roia lr. (.. IC. tt hitr. City VcJ rrinui iiiii. of Ntihvl'!e. In view of the fact that the con tagious disease of tho eye of cattle exists to some extent in this county, weclip tho following letter from the Nashville American for the benefit of those who have diseased cattle1 Iu the past few iiay.-i nunu roun cut- 'rtaka of n oontn.;ccr.ailincas,e ef theevo f cattle liavo been roportod to me. It s cull'jd' by thoho wLo lmvo tlms fur re ported it ''piiik eyn." This lias not only been reported by .several dairymen of ashville nad vicinity, but from tho coun tieii of Rutherford, Minny, AVilliiuusou, "ranklin, CofTi'e, Marshall and Bedford. So far as I have been able to determine, tho terra "piuk eye" is orrwncoubly iificd iu reporting this disease. "Piuk ere," as it iej cominonlv applied, refers to an euty-ely dilTereat affection, known as in fluenza. From the pyniptoms described in each and every letter which has come iut,o my hands, 1 feel safe in saying that it is tho sanio discaso which I liavo lata- ly come iu contact with daily in tho stock yards of this city. Tho affection refer itu is cpii.oouo coujuucnvnis. it is an infectious disease of cattle and which causes hiflamatiou of the conjunctiva (mucous nombrane of the eye). This iuflaniatiou soon extends to tho cornea and internal structures of tho ovcball. Some few cases recover bofore the evo ball becomes involved, but tho majority arc nioro Rovcrely a&octed, aud it goes on to Buppnration and udhesions of tho cornea, to tho crystalline leuse, ulcera tion, etc., causing partial or complete blindness, which may iu some cases be only temporary, while in ethers it is per manent. This disease is widespread and very contagious; when it attacks a herd it usually affects all the cows. The only treatment which seems to bt of any avail is sedatives, viz : Tr. opium 1 part; water, 2 parts, applied to eyes three times u day, or.Fl. ex. belladonna 1 dr.; zinc sulphate, 10 grains; water, 1 oz. ; apply three times a day until all in flammation subsides. . Keep cuttle affect ed in dark etulls. There has been very little written or recorded in the profes sional works on veterinary science as to the pathology and treatmont of this dis ease, and it is from facts which I have recently observed iu the stock yards that I write tho above, for the benefit of thoso who have been so anxious as to make in quiry through mo for information con cerning the dinea.se which is playing such havoc with their cattle.
