A cow in poor condition, newly calved, was taken in hand. A bucketful of artichokes was boiled twico a day, and given the cow with whatever water was left after boiling. Tho caw ato the artichokes ravenously, and drank up the water. A week aftur calving 1 put a deserted calf on her to keep, and, notwithstanding that she had two calves to suckle, sho gave plenty of milk and got into good condition. Grass at that timq was scarce. "During tho last winter I fed two heifers on artichokes, and found that more nulk and cream was the result. White artichokes any the easiest Things to grow, and will yield ten tons to the acre.

CHEST DEFORMITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 29 October 1915

HEST DEFORMITIES. For many chest deformities much can usually bo done if the patient is "caught" young enough. ' It is use less to attempt any radical reforma tion or tlio bony parts in adult life. In tho first place it is well to keep a re cord of the exact amount of tho de formity, and this can bo dono ivith the aid of a piece of ordinary lead gas tubing, say a quarter of an inch in dia meter. A length of this should bo taken, and pressed closely around tho chest, so as to bo moulded into the hol lows, and over tho prominences of tho chost wall. By means of a pencil tho the shape can now bo traced upon a shec-t of card or paper, and the date should bo trritton against the curve. Every week or month a now template should bo made in the varne way, and the tracings compared, with a view to noticing the progress made. Suitable exercises, massage, and deep nose breathing offer the best chances of im proving matters. An open-air hto should be prescribed as much as pos sible, with plenty...

In addition to this, largo consignments havo been brought from Archangel, which have been transpor ted at a uniform freight of $2 per quarter. Theso shipments still are going on.
