SPRING VALLEY BUR EAU ELECTS OFFICERS A very enthusiastic meeting of the Spring Valley Farm Bureau was held at the Spring Valley School house Sunday, November 19. The attend ance was unusually large and all took: keen interest in the meeting. All members expressed themselves as well pleased with the work that the Farm Bureau -has been doing and with tne- results which have been attained in. both state and county.

The forty-five and tilty cents which Colorado, Minnesota,Ohio Idaho and other raisers are getting: are positively ruinous. The chief business before the meet ing was the election of officers for; the ensuing year. The following per sons were chosen to care for the af fairs of the Spring Valley Bureau for the next year: v ' President, Jack O'Brien, re-elected Secretary, Robert Curry ; - Delegate to County Farm Bureau, C.

' Distribution of blackleg vaccine by the Bureau of Animal Industry, Unit ed States Department of Agriculture, a practice which has prevailed for many years, was discontinued July 1, and public notice was given at the time. . . . ... '- - Discontinuance was the result of; an item in the Agricultural appropria tion act for the year beginning July 1. 1922. which reads as follows: "Provided further, That no part of this sum shall be used for the manu facture, preparation, or distribution of blackleg vaccine." Frequent re quests for vaccine continue to reach the Bureau of Animal Industry, how ever, and applicants necessarily are advised to obtain the vaccine from other sources. Since' the blackleg vaccine is no longer distributed by the Bureau of Animal Industry, live stock owners are advised that appli cations for it cannot be granted, and they will avoid delay by applying direct to commercial concerns or oth er sources.
