CLOSURE AT WHITNEY
Arthur V. Davis, whose vision was quick
to penetrate the future possibilities of
this undertaking, and whose unerring
judgment and foresight made possible
the completion of the work and the real
ization of a hope long deferred.
The development at the Narrows will
remain for all times a monument to
•which the counties of Stanly and Mont
gomery, and the State of North Caro
lina, may point with pride, and an exam
ple of what may be accomplished by
ability and initiative, controlled by
sound business judgment.
The Vegetable Garden
There is still time to sow snap beans,
beets, and carrots. Irish potatoes should
be planted the early part of the month,
although I have made a profitable crop
of potatoes planted the middle of Au
gust. Later in the month sow kale,
mustard, rape, radish, spinach, lettuce,
and turnip. The Southern Giant Curled
Mustard is a good variety to plant. It
forms a great mass of light green leaves,
beautifully frilled, and finely curled.
One ounce for thirty feet of drill.
Don’t fail to try spinach, as stated in
Long standing Siberian Kale is ex
tremely easy to grow. This is a salad
from the cabbage family. Sow in rows—
one ounce to one hundred and fifty feet
of drill; or broadcast the same as
Sow seed of the early Milan Turnip
for fall use, and later in the month sow
seed of the Purple Top Globe and Yel
low Aberdeen Turnip for winter use.
The last of the month, seed of the Seven
Top Turnip can be sown in rows or
broadcast, to make greens for winter and
The early dwarf Garden Peas can be
sown in this month. Sow in deep fur
rows, and cover lightly; then work the
soil to them as they grow so that you
can get the roots deep in the soil, en
abling them to stand the heat and
droughts. They will usually give a good
crop in the early fall, and will be gen
erally more free from mildew than when
It will be well to spray with Bordeaux
Mixture to ward off mildew.
Keep a sharp outlook for insects of
all kinds, for the hot weather season
brings many kinds into activity.
Don’t fail to spray your potato and
young tomato crop with Bordeaux Mix
ture or some other made-up fungicides.
The last of the month is the time to
plant strawberries, as they will get a
small picking next season. A straw
berry bed should be only allowed to bear
two seasons, as the beds get choked with
grass and clover, and we get better fruit
by renewing the beds yearly.

Stone Lime, IV2 lbs.
Water, 12 gallons.
Dissolve the bluestone in a small

thoroughly at the same time. If
wish to make an insecticide with th®
