Mr. Bowman, a gentleman who claims to have made the Study and scientific fex&niination of wool the work of a life time, and who has' had a very wide and extensive experience in the use or wool for' manufacturing purposes, declares that ' if sheep are dirty they will clean themselves in a grass-field or straw-yard far better than by washing, and the w6ol will receive no injury ; whereas, when washed, the whole fleece is deter iorated.
