Tympanitis in Cattle. HOVENOR BLOWN. In view of the prevalence of the above disease in cattle we reprint the following article which appeared in the ' Agriculture Gazette of N.S.W.' of August, 1696. Diagrams illustrating the operation ot puncturing the rumen to afford relief in such cases may be seen on application at this office. Horen is the unnatural detention of the rumen or paunch with gaseous matter. Tbe cause seems to be the suspension of the natural peristaltic action of stomacb, and the consequent elimination of gaseous matters from the accumulated ingests. It occurs mostly when the grass is fresh and plentiful, aad full of rich juicy matter. Artificial grasso?, clover, lucerne, &-;., a!Bu produce it. It is necessary for every agriculturist to hi thoroughly acquainted with, and capable of employing, prompt remedies'; as cattle may die in a comparatiiely short ap ce of time in such casts,, unless immediately at tended to.
