OpAithatinla la Sheep Soma of th C'atuea of This Inflammation of tha Eya with Dlreetloas for It Prevention and Cure. Henry Stewart, excellent authority in all matters pertaining to sheep husband ry, contributes in a recent issue of Ru ral New Yorker some valuable informa tion concerning the inflammation of the eyes with resulting loss of sight, a fre quent disease in sharp during the win ter season. This disease, which ia con tagious, mostly has its beginning in the fall when the shet-j re pastured upon stubble. The stiff short straws come in contact with the eyes wounding and irritating them and causing the inflam mation, which, unallayed by any cura tive measures, proceeds to suppuration, and n secretion of diseased pus which is left on the feeding racks or other places and is thus communicated to the other sheep. The pain from this intense inflamma tion is very great and seriously disturbs the health of the sheep, which stop feeding, grow thin and in time suffer from a complication of disorders to which these ani mals are so sub ject, and when the spring ar rives and the shepherd hopes his troubles am A OUOD RACK. over, the animals die and both they and their lambs are lost, and the care and feeding through the winter are labor and money thrown away. The disease in question is one that is to be prevented, if possible, by avoiding the cause. Fragments of rye beard and cliaff from rye straw, used aa litter, and of which the sheep eat at night, lodge in the eyes. At times the use of Timothy hay will cause the disease, especially when the racks are made so wide apart that the Bheep can thrust their heads through the bars and among the stiff stems and so wound the eyes, and the seeds or chaff can get into them. A good form of rack to avoid this trouble is that shown in the cut. The front is made of upright bars two inches wide and three inches apart; the lack part is of boards set closely together and sloping forward at the bottom, so that the hay slides down and keeps close to the bars in front where the sheep can reach it. The trough for grain is at the front. The rack is raised a foot from the ground on small posts six or eight feet apart, so that young lambs cannot get fast in any way. Two of these racks may be set together, connected behind so as to form a -double rack to be placed in the middle of the shed, and others may be built against the aides of the shed. If the hay loft is over the sheep shed the hay may be dropped into the racks with the least possible labor. Since I first used this kind of rack 1 have never had any trouble with inflamed eyes in my sheep in the winter. A frequent cause of this disorder is the alkaline dust of the soil in the dry, hot weather, and the intensely hot re flection of the heat rays of the sun. Where this difficulty is experienced the fiheep may be saved by being inclosed during the middle of the day for some hours, and let out to feed in the even ing and night. Another common cause is the use of a too close and warm stable from which the sheep are turned out aud exposed to a cold storm of sleet or rain or damp snow; or to dry snow and bright sunshine, the reflection of which id painful to the eyes and produces snow blindness and inflammation. After the causes are removed, Mr. Stewart advises the following: Just re move the affected animals to a dark place. Give a light cooling antiseptic medicine, hyposulphite of soda in dram doses daily being very useful The eyes should be examined for any foreign sub stance, which should be removed, if easily possible, by a soft camel's-bair pencil; otherwise a small quantity of linseed mucilage made by boiling lin seed in a little water may be injected into the eye, by which the offending matter will be able to make its way to the outer corner of the eye where it can be seen and removed. To this mucilage may be added a fourth part of a solution of 10 grains of sulphate of zinc in an ounce of water, and two drops of wine of opium. When the eye is cleansed and this palliative injection has been used for two days, if the cloud remains, a pinch of burned alum is put into a goose-quill or small tube, and is blown into the eye. A few repetitions of this will clear the eye. It would be well to give all the sheep the above-mentioned quantity of the soda hyposulphite, powdered and mixed with a little molas ses, and spread on the back of the tongue, and to continue the treatment for a week. Vitality of Clover Seed. "We have seen two-year-old clover seed that was scattered accidentally on the snow in early spring come up as thick as tho hair on a dog," says Ameri can Cultivator. "If left in the ground, by being buried too deeply, clover seed will often hold its vitality many years. In localities where clover seed is grown, more or less of the seed is lost in harvest ing. If the clover seed stubble is plowed and sown with . wheat, that which dropped on the surface will not grow the next spring, as it ia buried too deeply. But it will come up in subse quent plowing for many years after ward, showing that this seed has re tained its vitality underground in all changes of temperature. Farmers some times say of such land that 'it is natural to clover, or the clover 'comes in with out seeding.' Neither of these phrases is strictly accurate, but the land of which this may be said is always among the best. It shows how long a field remem bers by bounteous crops a season of rea sonable treatment." Makes the Uvea of ao many people mis erable, and often leads to elf-destruction. We know of bo remedy for dys pepsia more successful than Hood's 8ar saparilla. It acta gently, yet surely and efficiently, tones the stomach and other organs, removes the faint feeling, creates a good appetite, cures headache, and refreses the burdened mind. Give Hood's Sarsaparilla a fair trial. It will do you good. Twenty-ene deceased persona have been cremated at Roeedale, near Los Angeles, Cal., the last one only few days ago. Tront Their Bnsinis Boomlng Probably no one thing has cansed such a general revival of trade at Haitz & Babnsen's drug store as their giving away to their customers of so many free trial bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption.
