The Burden Eagle says that seventeen sheep, belonging to H. M. Strickland, of Sheridan township, froze to death during last week’s snow storm, and as many more were left in a condition to die. This is the first loss we have heard of in Cowley, among any kind of stock. Our stock men are learning that straw sheds are much less expensive than frozen animals.
