" The Liver Fluke.
One of the most destructive, and
therefore the most dreaded diseases of j
-ebeep is the liver rot, produced, as is I
thought, bv the inject known as the |
liver fluke. In 1 -:-0 ! it is said, 2 000,-
000 sheep died in England witb tbe
rot; and thousands die with it in our
own countrv yearly; and in many in
stances the shephtrd or the farmer has j
no idea what ailed his sheep.
One unfailing m mptom that accom
panies tbe difecK is the change in the
membrane which covers the eyeball in
front and lines the eyelid. When tbe
ebeep are well this is a brilliant red;
but when attacked by the rot it be- j
comes a pale yellowish color, as does :
also the eyeball itself. If this change
is noted, in connection with a general
lassitude and ailing of the sheep, it j
may be safely said to have the liver
rot. Tlere are other symptoms, also;;
but many of them are common to other
diseases of sheep. The wool becomes
dry and harsh and falls off, dropsy ap
pears, and often a watery swelling ap
pears below tbe lower jaw. The spine.
j s arched, appetite is lost and thirst is
much increased. In time the sheep be
comes completely emaciated and dies a
wretched death. If it be opened it
will be found to be altogether rotten
within; the liver wil be filled with
ulcers and a yellowish fluid will foliow
the knife everywhere.
The fluke belongs to the order (re
molada or suctorial worms, and in
habits the gall-bladder or ducts of the
liver in sheep. The color is usually
like that of tbe organ in which it lives.
It is a very low form of insect existence,
multiplies from eggs or spores, and is
flat, oval-shaped when full grown. It
passes through several stages of exist
ence, and tbe spores or eggs need to be
washed with stagnant water before
they can fully develop. How it gets
into the sheep's vitals is a question
that there is difference of opinion upon;
but it is generally thought by those
who have made the insect a study that
it attaches iistll .or penetrates some
lower form of animal life, as snails or
soft-bodied molluscs, which are swal
lowed by the sheep when pasturing on
lowlands, or when drinking from stag
nant pools. Once introduced into tbe
stomach the insect soon finds its way
into the liver and disease begins in
earnest. Often the insects collect to
gether in large masses snd so obstruct
the flow of the bile as to produce jaun
dice. It is doubtless this that gives
the membrane of the eye its yellowish
appearance. Sheep olten put on flesh
rapidly when first attacked by the rot;
but the fat is highly colored and not
the result of thrift and good feed.
Various affections and diseases or
derangements of the animal system
follow in the train of this. When the
liver can no longer perform its func
tions, dropsy, diarrhea, fever, with
coughing and general disorganization,
A s in the case of many other diseases
of animals, prevention is the only cure.
Sheep pastured on high lands are not
often, if ever, affected with this disease;
they have no opportunity to take in
the young insect that produces the
evil. Keep your sheep away from the
stagnant pools and on dry pastures,
and the difficulty will be avoided; the
fluke cannot develope in these places.
Hence, fence off or drain all lowland
pastures, and do not feed lowland hay,
as sometimes this may communicate
tha cause of the disease. Salt should
be given the sheep in good quantity,
and the following mixture, recommend
ed by Henry Stewart, Ihe well-known
authority, should be given on the first
appearance of the above named symp
toms: saltpeter, H oz ; powdered gin
ger" 1 oz.; carbonate of iron, oz ;
salt. 1 lb ; boiling water, 3 qts. When
mixed and cool add 9 ounces of spirits
of terpentine, and bottle the mixture.
Give in the morning a wine-glass full
by means of a horn, and repeat the dose
every forth day for two weeks. No
food should be «iven the sheep the
night previous, nor within three hours
after the mixture is administered.
It is a very hard matter to cure the
disease when in full course; but the
above will be as good medicine as can
be given. But watch for the symp
toms, note the preventatives, and
there will be less danger from this pe

How Watch Cases are Made.
Most persons have an amliition to carrj
a gold watch case, and yet few people knew
how a watch case is made, or the vast dif
tertwcK juihequalitypf them. InaSoLiD
GOLD WATCH CASE, aside from the peeesr
sarv thickness for engraving and polishing,
a large proportion of the metal is needed
only to stiilen and hold the engraved por
tions in place, and 6upply strength. The
surplus is not only needless, hut undesira
ble, because gold i 3 a soft metal and cannot
furnish the stillness, strength and elasticity
necessary to make the case permanently
6trong nud close-fitting. The perfect watch
case must combine gold with some metal
that will supply that in which the gold is
deficient. This has been accomplished by
th e James Boss Gold Watch Case _ 3 . dE MARK
which saves the WASTE of 7iccd- JT/A
