To Relieve « Choking Cow. A writer in Farming World gives the following method to relieve a choking cow: . Take a piece of round stick about as thick around as a pitchfork handle, open the cow's mouth, put the piece of wood crosswise as a bit in a horses mouth, with a piece of small cord reaching around the head to keep it in place as bit and bridle in an ant mal'» mouth. The work is doue, and you need give the animal teution. no more at It is the great flow of saliva from the irrigation „f , h e thr oat which causes the bloating, which soon proves fatal, and also swells whatever is in the throat until suffocation takes place. This treatment gives an oppor tunity for the saliva to escape and the •welling disappears. The animal can cough the offending obstruction out r:;r t ;r. n,h * thro " Fashionable to Breed Milch Goats.
