Throughout the mountains of Northwest : Carolina nothing so attracts and ! fns&risifcs tourists :\f the dogwood : blooms of early May. Strange as it may appear; dogwood does not grow wild anywhere in the world hut North America. Not many r.f us know, perhaps, that there arc some 30 varieties distin- | | guLshed in this country, varying j from the low flowering shrub variety about id /Jjchcs high, to a giant west coast tree that sometimes [ grows to 700 feet in height. This 'rynstent" "tree" nas ti-nvcrs \wice as large as other varieties and sometimes with six petals instead of four. There is also a dogwood variety that grows rather large, 50 feet high sometimes, with white berries instead of rod. found mostly in Arkansas and ^astern Texas. The Gaston County terracing unit has been running from daylight to dark during recent weeks in the attempt to terriice as much land as pes sible before planting begins. \TIONAL CABBAGE ? 17 CD LiLLA f ? 1 -? .auuayc ici Linz.ei ever itain cabbage growers | m their cabbage fields y farmer who used it.
