INFORMATION BASED ON EXPERIENCE
OpAithatinla la Sheep Soma of th
C'atuea of This Inflammation of tha Eya
with Dlreetloas for It Prevention and
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
The pain from this intense inflamma
tion is very great and seriously disturbs
the health of the
sheep, which stop

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
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
