The Colvllk Examiner, Saturday, November 26, 1921
"'ontinued from preceding puge.)
.Mr. Petty with his newly obtained
vision is like a child with a new
Christmas toy. He tries it on evory
thing. He tells everyone about it.
His First Trip Alone
Friday he made his first trip alone
downtown. He even left his cane
"Watch out for automobiles," his
niece had cautioned him.
'Why, I could see an automobile
two blocks away," he said. "The
uutos all seem twice as big as I
thought they were. In fact, every
thing la bigger."
Seeing human beings distinctly is
one of Mr. Potty's greatest pleasures.
"People are not quite as good
looking as I thought they would be,"
he says. "Hut the tall buildings,
they are wonderful."
One of the first things Mr. Petty
did oh regaining his sight was to call
for pencil and paper. He wanted to
see hia own signature. He says
he thinks he can improve on it now.
Mirror Gi\ts Him "Shock"
He also insisted on being taken to
"That was a terrible shock," ho
, aid In telling of it.
Mr. Petty also has been inspoct'np
carefully the garb of the women ho
"I wanted to sec those short skirts
I had been healing; ?o much about.
Why—why, some of the women act
ually wear 'em to the knees."
Saturday morning Mr. "Petty walk
ed up and down the block in which
his niece lives. It is a block of
"Such beautiful homes," he ex
•: limed over and over again. "Why,
there's Queen Anne and Gothic and
all form- of architecture here."
"Wo'll show you some really beau
';! homes no •■>• that you c-.m see,"
his niece interjected.
"There are so many lovely things
to see that I don't see how I can
get around to all of them," he re
In his walk Mr. Petty paused to
admire the brown leaves lying on the
"I'm glad I got to see before all
the leaves were gone," he said.
"There are 18 houses in this row
from this place on the end of the
block," he added.
Mr. Petty counts everything, now
that ho can see. When he was
downtown, Friday, he stopped to
count the stories of the big build
"If you hadn't been able to dis
tinguish between three and 33 ob
jects all your life, you would stop
and count, too," he .said.
He picked up a newspaper and
read the headlines. He has been
cautioned against too much reading
until his eyes are completely well.
He caught hold of one of the but
tons on his coat.
"There are three buttons on this
coat now," he said, " and they are
dark gray. I never knew their
color before. In fact, as far as
color goes, I can't remember when I
could see any difference in the color
of an orange from that of a Jona
Mr. Petty does not sit long. He
rises and walks about the room fre
quently, testing his new gift.
Now the World is Bigger
"It seems so wonderful to walk
without feeling your way, to have no
fear of colliding with anyone," he
The entiie world) as well as human
beings, seem much larger and much
brighter than he had expected, he
says. Being shut in a world of
dai*kness so long has made all things
scorn small to him.
Mr. Petty has written a book sum
marizing his experiences in juvenile
work and has supported himself part
ly fin Its sale. It is entitled "The
Bad Boy and His T)ad."
JNO. B. SLATER WRITES
(Continued from page one)
plished in five minutes.
It is remarkable the number of
people who carry on a business in
San Francisco and whose homes are
fifty miles away. They spend as
much as an hour going to their
place of business in the morning, and
again as much time returning at
night; but they contend the time is
not wasted, because the journey is
recreation and they read their daily
paper enroute in personal quietude.
San Francisco is so congested that
home building there is impracticable,
and people are housed in hotels and
apartments which exclude the rear
ing of families. The greater free
dom of area in the outerbay dist
tricts afford* ample compensation for
the time and distance from the fever
ed busin'-^.-i depths of the city by the
Rut the day of the ferry on the
bay seems to be doomed. Up to two
years ago no one dreamed of any
better way of handling the traffic
across the harbor; but now there are
two projects in contemplation, that,
if perfected, will eliminate a great
part of the present methods of local
transportation as completely as the
horse-drawn vehicle has been su
porceded by the automobile. One
is a pontoon bridge of stupendous
proportions, and the other a sub
marine tube railway. In view of
present day titanic developments,
there is reason to believe that either
may be established and in operation
within the next five years.
NEWS OF SCHOOLS
Some of the Current News
at Colville's Accredited
The Bird Man
Charles Crawford Gorst, the "bird
man," gave an instructive and en
tertaining program on Tuesday, Nov.
22, at the Colville theatre. This is
the first number of the lyceum course
that is being given by the seniors
of the high school. The number was
well attended and the seniors will
probably make a success of their
course, which contains three other
A booster for the sale of the ly
ceum tickets was staged in the high
school assembly Monday afternoon
(hiring the eighth period. It wao
stuged as a farce and proved to be
a good advertisement for the sale of
tickets. Hairy Kslick introduced the
program as Charles Gorst's grand
father, who told of his grandson's
coming and his ability to imitate the
songs of many birds. Enos Rice as
Vhomas Skeyhill's brother, who will
bring to us interesting news from
Russia, gave us a short discourse
about the famous lecturer. The Vis-
L'ohli Trio proved to be entertaining,
being represented by Luella Droz at
piano, Alice Conner and Wilbur Copp.
The Filipino quartet proved to be
the most thrilling number and was
forced to respond with an encore.
The impersonators were Ruth Erick
son, piano; Robert Nelson, dishpan;
Carl Johnson, banjo; Ray Clinton,
guitar. The last number was a story
composed by a member of the senior
class and read by Ruth Erickson.
A challenge was received from
Newport for a basket ball game to
be played at Newport any time the
Colville team has an open date. The
team has accepted this challenge for
a game on Dec. 2, at Newport. Al
though practice was started two
weeks ago the first team has not
been chosen. The coach will have
picked his squad of seven men next
Monday and Tuesday were exam
days in Colville schools as it was the
end of the second six weeks period.
The question now is "will I pass, or
will 1 flunk." That question in most
cases will not be answered until af
ter the holidays.
Colville schools were dismissed
Wednesday noon. This was to en
able the teachers and many of the
students to spend Thanksgiving at
homo. The time lost will be made
up n^xt spring.
Spanish Club Sleigh Ride
A sleighing party will be given by
the numbers of the Spanish club next
Monday evening, Nov. 27, after which
they will go to Miss Josephine La-
Plant's. Committees were chosen at
a meeting of the club held last Mon
day afternoon to arrange for the
sleighs and refreshments. In case
the sleighing is gone by the appoint
ed time, a party will be given instead.
It is intended that five books shall
be read by each pupil of the first and

Veterinarian Urges Care
In Feeding of Livestock
Dairymen and horsemen in and
around Colville are urged by Dr.
Kenneth G. McKay to exercise the
utmost care in the feeding of their
horses and stock during the present
run of inclement weather, on account
of the fact that botulism, one of
the most dreaded diseases among
dairy cattle, and azotura, a deadly
disease among horses, have started
to make their appearance in this lo
cality following the two snowfalls
the first part of the week.
"Botulism," said Dr. McKay, "is
first evidenced by the falling off in
the amount of milk given by the
cow, loss of appetite, emaciation and
a staggering gait. Unless the ani
mal is given immediate attention,
death will ensue. Probably the most
important reason that botulism is
now making its appearance among
cattle is due to the fact that they
have been given moldy ensilage
According to Dr. McKay, the so
called azotura is brought about by
a high protein diet and enforced rest.
The symptoms are generally mani
fested by profuse perspiration all
over the body by the animal affect
ed. This is followed by paralysis of
the front or hind quarters, generally
the hind quarters and occasionally
"When paralysis evidences itself,"
-stated Dr. McKay, "the animal should
not be moved except on a stone boat
to the bam. Two blankets should be
used, one for the absorption of the
perspiration and the other for keep
ing the animal warm. The blankets
-should be put on and not removed
until the animal has recovered. The
method for treatment for an animal
thus afflicted is to open all channels
"Should the animals take kindly
to a .sling they -should be put in one.
If not they should be rolled from
one side to the other every two hours
on account of the fact that horses
are more susceptible to peritonitis
than any other animal."
