1ROM THE .OIEUICAX FAU.MER.
ON RIPPLE GRASS.
By Thomas Pinckney, Jr. July, 1819.
Altamont, JifJy 7ih, 1819.
Sir Permit me to recommend to
the attention of the Society, a small
grass growing spontaneously ail over
our district, and which has the impor
tant advantages of being a native of
our clime and soil, and retaining its
verdure and juices throughout the win
ter. I allude to the narrow-leaved
plantain, or ripple grass, (plantago ten
nifolia.) ISIy sheep have never thriv
en well in winter, notwithstanding they
have a dry fold, a good shelttr, with
racks and troughs, and are tolerably
well supplied with dry food and pea
hay ; but last winter they suffered so
much from the want of pasture, and
brought me so few lambs, that my at
tention was naturally turned to the best
mode of procuring them green lood,
occasionally during the winter, and ve
ry early in the spring. A visit which
I paid to a neighbour, solved my diffi
culty. His sheep were in fine order,
and he had not lost a lamb. A small
part cf his apple orchard, not half an
acre, was tolerably well set with ripple
grass, and the ewes and young lambs
were turned on it. As I know that in
all other respects, my Sock are at least
as well treated as his, I could impute
his success to no other cause than his
ripple grass ; which his opinion al
so. Thinking well of this grass, I had
collected and sown a few seed near my
house, mixed with orchard grass and
red clover ; and I think it has always
maintained a superiority over them, as
a winter bite for sheep. The soil is
exceedingly poor, a stiff red clay and
very stony. I find this grass very fa
vorably spoken of in Anderson's Es
say on Agriculture, who says, that "it
deserves the attention of the farmer,
as a valuable pasture grass. It will
thrive upon barren soils, where hardly
any other plant could live. It may
most easily be distinguished on poor
clays, where it is frequently found with
out the mixture of any other plant ;
cattle, horses and sheep, cat the leaves
greedily, especially sheep, which bite it
verv close to the ground."
This authority so strongly confirm
ing my own observation, has induced
me at this time, to trouble the Society
with these remarks, as the seed of this
grass is now ripe, and to recommend to
my "brother farmers, to collect it care
fully, and to sow it in September, on a
piece of good land, well ploughed, and
the seeds harrowed in. I would not
advise the mixture of any other seed
with it, unless they can procure that of
the broad-leaved plantain, which also
grows commonly about our fields ; but
I would recommend them to give it a
fair chance of success. Not to rely on
its growing on poor land ; but to pre
pare half an acre by deep ploughing,
and manure, if the piece is not natural
ly rich, to sow his seed thick enough,
and harrow it in carefully. This little
trouble will be nothing in comparison
of its value to him next winter, and if
he but performs his part well, I feel as
sured he will soon extend his hall a
cre to the quantitv his flock will re

X. aged 32, of a fair and delicate
complexion, enjoyed a good state of health
until her fifteenth. year, when some de
rangement of the catamenia took place.
About this period an erupt'on of small
vesicles appeared on the left part of ihe
upper iip, which the patient broke at dif
ferent timcs. An herpetic eruption soon
followed, which disappeared and sudden
ly attacked the nice ?iasi. The patient still
continued to irritate the parts with her
fingers, the disease assumed a phagedenic
character. . Several physicians were con
sulted, and one considering the disease as
carcinomatous, applied the arsenical pow
der of Frere Cosme, which destroyed the
whole of the cartilages of the anterior part
of the nose. In the meantime the dis
ease extended to the cheeks, especially
the left, without, however, being attended
with any pain In this state she was pla
ced under the care of Dr. LSuenger, who
pursued a different, plan of treatment.
By a cooling regimen, antimonials, and a
decoction of dulcamara, avoiding all ex
ternal irritants? he succeeded in curing
the sores on the cheeks, as well as thos&
of the nose. The epidermis still remain
ed red, tender, and very delicate, breaking;
from time to time, according to the state
of the weather, the winter season being;
The deformity produced by the disease
being so hideous, and the skin showing;
no tendency to resume its natural condi
tion, Dr. Buenger, on the 24th of April
1318, removed, by means of a cutting in
strument, about an inch and a half of the
diseased skin from the right cheek, and
with a view to ascertain the state of the
constitution. The wound was brought to
gether by three sutures, and complete
union took place at the end of the third
day, the cicatrix consolidating, and rapid
ly disappearing. Lncouragetl by this trial,
Dr. Buenger, in fifteen days afterwards,
operated on the left cheek, where the
skin was diseased to the extent of a crown
piece. The cure was equally speedy, but
the cicatrix remained rather prominent.
In about a month after this he under
took the cure of the nose, and wishing to
obviate all deformity? he resolved to re
place the skin of the nose by a portion of
thatcf the thigh. With this intention he
began to separate the whole of the dis
eased skin which covered the nose, taking;
care to preserve the periosteum of the
bones of the cssa nasi. 1 he wound was
left exposed, and bled for four hours. Ho
then cut an oval portion of skin from the
outer part ot the thigh, measuring three
inches. He placed this morsel on his
hand? removed a certain quantity of fat,
and with a pair of icissors modeled it into
a convenient form ; this skin, while ex
posed to the air for a quarter of an hour,
became white, cold, and shrunk consider
ably. The bleeding from the nose hav
ing ceased, Dr. Buenger applied the por
tion of detached skin to the wounded
place, and secured it by eight sutures.
Over these he applied adhesive straps,
and a bandage to support the whole. The
patient was placed on a proper diet, and
desired to cover the nose frequently
with her hands, with a view to warm the
parts with her breath. At the end of
three days, he removed the dressings.
The middle portion of the grafted skin
had assumed a redish color, but the edges
near the sutures, were purple and gangre
nous. She was ordered to apply warm,
fomentations. The space between the
sutures suppurated, but the lower part
separated in a state of mortification. The
cicatrization of the upper part advanced
quickly. When examined on the 1 1th
April, 1319, it presented the following
appearances : The skin which covered
the bones, was fine, shining, tender and
whitish ; above and behind, it was united
with the integuments of the face ; at the
interior part, it was a little deficient un
der the bones of the nose, and curved in
wards, particularly on the right side, where
it almost entirely formed the nostril. The
cicatrices extended from the middle of
the dorsum of the nose to the base of thtu
alee, and resembled those which are pro
duced by burns. The inferior septur,!
the cJa exists in part, and the interior of
the nostrils is apparently sound. The
upper lip is still the seat cf s'ight morbid
irritation, but in other respexts the patient
is quite well.
Dr. Buenger now prtoes to form thct
