B. Lessons Put to Practical Use East Seneca, Apr. 24—During the recent chickenpox and measles epidemic in the Seneca community mothers who took the winter Farm Bureau women's course on feeding the sick tried it out and found it of practical benefit. The measles, which this year, in many instances, lasted for several days, left patients weakened and with impaired digestion, and this latter condition required a diet to provide the food needed for recovery without irritating organs not functioning in the normal way. This could be done by use of menus given in the lessons. Mothers were also comforted, to think that they were feeding the children in the right, way to bring about quick recovery. Stray Wire Shorts Corwith High Line Corwith, Apr. 24—In the blizzard last week Monday night it was discovered that big sparks were shooting from atop one of the large electric wire poles in west Corwith and that the pole was burning for ten feet down from'the top.
