Operated on a Cows Eye.
Dr. Hornish went to Alba yesterday where he performed a delicate operation on a cows eye. The cow belongs to Mr. Hamelton of that place, and some time ago she ran a thorn into her eye which caused blood poisoning and a large unwieldy growth formed over the eye. After the operation the sight of the eye was restored.
