Field Supervisor's Bulletin No.
3.—Farm Animal Management.
The following article is written by
John F. Wood, Field Supervisor, Langley Prairie :
'In simple language an endeavor will
be made to lay down a few general
hints that will assist you.
"An animal presents a normal condition and this is expressed by temperature, respiration, pulse, appetite, and
outward conditions such as the coat,
horns, and nose of a cow, etc. A slight
variation of any of the.se, when the animal is standing still, means trouble.
The first and the one that gives most
trouble is found in the digestive system, due to under-feeding, over-feeding,
irregular feeding, sudden change of
feed and improper watering.
" WATERING j All animals should
have access to water at all times, with
the exception of the horse. He should
be watered before meals (except when
warm, and then only a few swallows at
intervals until the animal cools before
feeding.) Always water a horse if possible while working.
V FEEDING : Regular feeding of all
stock should be adopted ; remembering
that variation in small quantities is a
good thing. This will draw your atten-'
tion to the old saying about 'ham and
eggs.' Therefore, feed a few chopped
carrots, turnips, mangels, or a bran
mash once or twice a week, Tonics and
stimulents are not necessary to coax an
animal to eat.
"If a sudden change of feed is anticipated, it is advisable to give the animai
a laxative, und linseed oil, especially in
the cow, is very highly recommended ;
in fact, a quart of linseed oil should be
one of the few medicines always on
hand.
Minor Ailments and Treatments.
"Animals have a way of talking to
you, and trouble should be taken to try
to understand them. For instance, a
horse will limp occasionally; that is
one way of telling you that there is
something wrong. A horse will not eat
his feed ; that is another indication
that he needs attention.
"CORN-Found on the inside heel of
the front foot. Presented by tenderness, heat and flinching, also pointing
the foot., Attend to the shoeing.
"THRTJSH-Found in the cleft of
the frog, in all fours. Treat with an
antiseptic ; calomel or common salt are
recommended.
" SAND CRACK-Found on the wall
of the hoof. Have a blacksmith burn
an inverted V at the upper point of the
crack.
° SORE SHOULDERS-Due to poor
fitting collar. Remove the cause and
apply a lotion of zinc sulphate and lead
acetate.
" LACERATIONS (cut?;-Draw the
wound together with a sharp needle
and horse tail hair: apply an antiseptic
wash and a dusting powder of boracic
acid.
" DEHORNING-Always have this
done by a competent veterinary.
'MILK FEVER-Presented by a cow
being down after calving. Cannot get
up, will not eat or drink, head around
to her side. Do not drench, but call
veterinary assistance.
" PARTTJRATION-It is always ad*
visable to allow an animal to labor for
a time before you try to assist, as^na-
ture tends to look after the condition.
If assistance is necessary do not forget
that cleanliness and common sense are
the big factors in these cases. If an
animal labors almost to' exhaustion, one
should not be backward in giving assistance, this especially to sheep and swine,
as the trouble in these cases is generally
due to one of the young obstructing the
passage, and when this is straightened
out the rest will come usually without
assistance.

REVISION  OF
PROVINCIAL VOTERS' LIST.

TORAL DISTRICT.
1. Don't try to persuade the horse
that the load is not a heavy one.
2. Don't leave your horse standing
hooked to an implement in the field
while you go in the house for your dinner.
3. Don't hit the sow if she smothers
her young.   Arrange the pen properly,
4. Don't expect a five gallon cow to
give you five gallons of milk, existing on
the carbohydrates, etc., found along the
roadside.  Feed her.
5. Don't try to run 10 head of cattle
on 10 acres of land.   It can't be done.
6. Don't form irregular milking and
feeding hours, but work on By stem. It
pays.
7. Don't work a lame horse. There
is a society for prevention of cruelty to
animals.
9. Don't drench your cow when she
is down with milk fever.
9. Don't forget to look well after your
stock, for they are your livelihood, and
your success depends greatly upon
them.
10. Don't judge your success with
your stock by watching your neighbor's
milk cans go to the station.
11. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
Chautauqua is here, and at 3 30 yef-
terday afternoon the first performance
was staged in the presence a fair sized
audience in the big tent erected for the
purpose.
The various local com mittes in charge
met on Friday night and handed in re*
ports showing everything pointed to a
successful issue of the undertaking of
the thirty-three enterprising citizens
who pledged themselves in order to
assure the appearance of the Dominion
Chautauqua in our midst. It is the
duty of every resident of Langley municipality to lend a helping hand in seeing
to it that by no chance these men will
suffer loss.
The programme to be presented by
the Chautauqua people is of the highest
from an educational and entertaining
standpoint and is exactly the same as
presented in Vancouver and the other
large cities, and the people of this district are indeed fortunate in having this
galaxy of talent seen right at home.
Langley Prairie will loom large in the
public eye this week and let everybody
put their shoulder fcj the wheel and
leave no stone unturned to see that all
visitors will receive the most favorable
impression of our town. Lay aside
all petty grievances and uno animo set
out to make this week a red letter one
in the history of Langley. All eyes ate
upon us and the doubting Thomases are
in evidence as usual, so get together
with a strong pull, and a pull altogether
and let it not be said tbat Langley
Prairie fell down for want of a little
public spiritedness and co-operative
foresight.
The local stores have agreed to close;
their doors during all afternoon performances so that everyone in town can
be at liberty to take in all the performance if they so desire.
NOTICE is hereby given that on Monday, the 20th June, 1921, at Ten o'clock
in the forenoon, at the Court House,
New Westminster, B.C., a sitting of the
Court of Revision will be held for the
purpose of revising the list of voters for
the above named Electoral District,
pursuant to the provisions of the "Provincial Elections Act."
And notice is further given tbat any
person whose name is not already on
the Voters' List claiming to be entitled
to be registered as a voter in the above-
named Electoral District may apply in
person to have his name entered on the
list of voters for the said Electoral District at the said sitting of the Court of
Revision, notwithstanding the fact that
his name has been omitted from the list
of applicants for registration, or that he
has omitted to apply for registration at
the time or in the manner otherwise
provided by the "Provincial Elections
Act."        '
.... The list of applicants lor registration
is now posted and may be inspected at
the office of the undersigned Registrar
of Voters.
And notice is further given that any
voter whose name is liable to be struck
off from the last revised list of voters
by reason of having failed to vote at the
general election held on the 1st December, 1920, may at any time either before
or during the sittings of the Court of
Revision, file with the undersigned Registrar an affidavit in support of his application for the reinstatement of his
name on the list of voters. The affidavit shall be in Form 1A.

losing his right eye on Thursday while
working on Mr. Fitchett's new house.
He was using a chisel overhead when it
slipped from his grasp and struck him
on the eyebrow, barely missing the eyeball.
Mr. Robt. Buckland, of New Westminster, is busy rebuilding the chicken
house on W. S. Collister's ranch, recently destroyed by tire.
There is a movement on foot to have
all places of business close at 6 o'clock
every evening except Saturday during
the summer months.
The inaugural banquet of the Langley
Board of Trade will be held on.Tuesday
evening, May 31st, in the Milner Hall.
Secretary Lynn Harvey has bad tickets
printed for the occasion and they are

speakers from Cloverdale, Vancouver
and New Westminster.
It ie most desirable that a representative gathering turn out and make the
event memorable in the history of
Langley.   .
"Made in B. C." McKelvie will be
there and his presence alone should
ensure a full house. There are no dull
moments when the jovial and versatile
McKelvie is on the job. President Malkin and Secretary Payne of the Vancouver Board of Trade will be present as
well as President Kendall of the Cloverdale Board and several members from
New Westminster. THE VALLEY SENTINEL   .

At the meeting of the  Surrey
Council on Saturday Reeve R D
MaoKenzie president over a full
attendance.
D Welsher, T Wells, W Stafford,
6 Herson and J Nearerier, residents in the Holt road district,
raised such a howl as is rarely
heard even at Council meetings,
anent the failure  to  gravel  the
Holt road between the Hall's Prairie and Latimer roads. They insisted that Councillor Bothwell had
attended a meeting of residents
which unanimously decided that
that work was more necessary than
the repairing of the Hall's Prairie
road, but despite that the Councillor had spent money on the latter
road and left the Holt road practically impassable.
Councillor Bothwell stuck to his
position that the money had been
spent to the best advantage of the
greatest number, and agreed to do
such work on the Holt road as the
balance of the ward appropriation
would cover.
A by-law is to be submitted for
decision of the ratepayers providing for the expenditure of $42,515
on new schools and' additions to
existing ones. If it passes the
Government will provide $i3,815,
leaving the balance to be raised by
municipal debentures over 10 years.
That would mean annual charges
of $2,503 for debt redemption, and
$1,722 for interest.
A petition praying for the concreting of the full width of the
roadway through Cloverdale when
the Pacific Highway paving is ^being done, the extra cost to be borne
by owners affected under the Local
Improvement Act, was   approved.
Mr B B Smith, of the Mound
Farm, Meridian road, has entered
suit against' the Council, claiming
damages for the alleged turning of
surface water upon his land. Mr.
Smith is one of the three dyking
commissioners for Surrey.
Applicants for trade licenses,
which the Council rules have to be
approved by them before soft drinks
or ice cream can be sold from newly erected premises along the paved
section of the Pacific Highway,
pressed their case, and one declared
flatly that if he did not get a license soon he would sell without
one. Four such applications are
before the Council, and a number
of others are pending. One -man
has already built imposing premises for a tea room and gas supply
statiou. None of the licenses were
granted, all being held over, but
speedy decision was promised in
one case The hitch is really due
to trouble with near beer dispensaries along the tourist traffic route
in the past,
A large crowd turned out on
Sunday to witness the unveiling
ceremonies, Everything went off
as per schedule,
The debate in the Methodist
Church on Wednesday evening last
on "Resolved, that Chinese should
not be allowed to enter Canada as
Immigrants," attracted a packed
house and aroused unusual interest, Miss Florence Smith and Mr.
George Brown took the case against
the .Chink and Miss Jean lnglis
and Mr, J, Mason argued the case
for Oriental immigratinn. • Among
the reasons advanced why Chinese
should not be allowed into Canada
was that they were undesirable
citizens and lowered the standard
of living in localities in which they
congregated, The supporters of
the Chinese on the other hand argued that when laborers were re
quired for big undertakings Chinese were brought in in large numbers and regarded as necessary to
the development of British Columbia, and it was unfair to subsequently seek to get rid of them.
Rev H E Horton and Messrs C
Winslade and E L Small were the
judges, and they awarded the honors of the debate to the supporter*
of Chinese immigration,

New Westminster, Friday, May 20.—
An all round slump in prices featured
the trading on the market to-day. Eggs
were in such quantities as have rarely
been experienced here, and prices re-
ceeded to 24c to 25c per doi wholesale,
with 30c ruling quotation retail, though
in a few case* sellers got 35c retail from
special customers. Nowhere was the
slump more pronounced than in the
lire poultry "section, where the top price
for heavy hens was 28c per lb, and that
an isolated deal in line Plymouth Rocks,
25c being the best obtained for general
sales, with L'Oc top for light hens, and
broilers selling all the way from 10c
apiece to 35c per lb for heavy plump
birds.
Pork was hardly saleable »t all in the
wholesale meat mart, and 18c per lb
was the best price of the day, with
heavy around 10c, and a very negligible
demand. Veal moved a trifle faster,
but last week's prices were barely maintained, with 90c top.
There was a fine show of spring vegetable produce, rhubarb, radishes, lettuce and onions finding ready sale.
The demand for bedding plants and
fruit bushes and trees was the redeeming feature ot a well attended market.
Just before 10 o'clock most of those
present adjourned to the wharf to see
the Baptist Church from Goquitlam go
sailing by en route for Kerrisdale—an
unique spectacle.
Average prices : Eggs, 24c to 25c
wholesale; 30c to35c retail. Butter 50c
to 55c retail; honey 45c lb.
Poultry—Light hens 15c to 29c per lb
live weight; heavy 20c to 25c, one transaction at 28c; roosters 14c to 15c;
broilers light 10c to 20c apiece; heavy
25c to 35c lb; day old duckings 35e to
40c apiece; ducklings eight weeks, 50c
lb; old ducks 3tic lb; dressed chickens
45c to 50c per lb.

Mr. and Mrs. Munroe and family, re*

a year ago (the Forbes family left Vancouver on board the City of Victoria,
one of the Flii.ts built in the Coghlan
yards, with the intention oi making
their permanent home in the land of
ihe heather, but the call of British Columbia's many charmes proved to strong
and they returned, glad to get away
from the non too pleasant conditions ia
the Old Land. Capt. Wermouth, with
his wife and family, accompanied them
up here and all spent a pleasant day.
The want of a larger aud more up-to-
date public place for entertainments is
keenly felt here and the advisability of
starting a campaign to raise the necessary funds is being discussed. Some of
the older heads are inclined  to think
this an inorpotunc time for raising
money and think probably the old hall
can be made to do for some time yet.

somewhat in the seventh innings and
he was withdrawn.   Clayburn is sadly
in need of a pitcher, the ones she put in

a little loose due raostlv to the rough
ground and strong sun. With mo'e
practice Murrayville should make a
good showing before the season closes.
