The Liver Fluke* or "Sheep .?.'?,'.,''..../.' , ". Kot." '."' Ameri can Agriculturist. Within the last few months there lias been great destruction of life among tlie aheep of Great Britain, from tho " Rot," which is tho result of an un- usnal development of the liver parasite known ns the " Fluke," {Distoma hepa ticum). Those animal parasites, which are something more than an inch long when full-grown, take up their abodo in the passages leading to the liver, nnd when choke up the smaller channels, arrest the flow of bile, and otherwise derange the action of the liver. " The sheep suffer first from jaundice, which causes tho skin and eyes to become yellow. At this stage, the sheep thrives and fattens rapidly, and the yellow colour of the fat of many carcases of mutton that are- sold in the market is due to this bilious derangement. In a short time the sheep fails, the skin and eyes bo come wliite, and bloodless, a watery tumor appears beneath the jaws, tho abdomen swells from drops...
