An outbreak of what is commonly
called the "Kansas horse disease" has
taken place. in western Kansas and

That is the judgment of the United
States department of agriculture on
one of the most serious problems for
owners of farm sheep., Definite infor

is embodied In Circular No. 47, "Stom

How do the worms injure sheep?
, These very small worms live in the
alimentary tract, principally in the
"fourth stomach," and injure sheep by !
consuming blood, and by secreting a
poisonous fluid which destroys red
blood corpuscles. The injury is often
fatal to lambs. Adult sheep are better
able to withstand it;"

Make a drench by dissolving one
fourth pound of powdered bluestone in
a pint of boiling water, and add suffi

three gallons of solution. The dose
for an adult sheep is three and a half
fluid ounces, for lambs under a year
old, one and 4ree-iuarters fluid ounces
of . this solution. It is better to use
this early before serious trouble de
velops than to wait until the lambs
begin to die.
Care, however, is necessary in
drenching, and improper dosing may
cause serious damage. While tUe

has effectively checked the epidemic.
The factthat in the outbreak of 1912
Kansas lost some 20,000 horses indi
cates the serious possibilities of such
an occurrence and the value of speedy
protective measures such as the fed
