The ship Veslris sank the first of
last week with a loss of more than
a hundred lives. For a week an
investigation has been going on to
determine the true cause of the
tragedy, which appears to be little
nearer a solution than when started.
Hardly lias there been such conflict
in a lot of testimony. One must
conclude from the evidence adduced
that the ship was not altogether sea
worthy and that it was not manned
with a well-trained crew.
Dr. Albert L. Anderson, super
intendent of the State Hospital at
Raleigh, was found guilty of two
minor charges Tuesday in Wake
Superior Court after being on trial
for seven days. He had been in
dicted on 15 counts of misconduct
in office. The'chargee upon which
he was convicted were for sending
hospital patients to his private
farm to work. The Judge imposed
a line of $500. There are yet two
charges* for embezzlement upon

cember term of Wake Superior
A Farm Saw Mill Will Sometimes Pay
Despite the waste in operating
a sawmill on the farm, sometimes
it is necessary for the woodlot
owner to put in his own plant to
get a market for bis logs and to
balance his labor.
"And yet," says R. W. Grae
ber, extension forester at State
College, "We have few timber
markets so developed that a
farmer can cot his logs and deliv
er them to an established mark
et such as for cotton or tobacco.
There are some communities
where markets exist for high
class logs but on many farms
there are top logs suitable for
cross ties, rough framing or
boards for farm bnildings. Many
farmers may find it more practi
cal to operate their own saw
mills as a means of controlling
the cutting of timber from their
Where such landowners have
a supply of cheap power, such as
water power or surplus energy at
their cotton gins, a farm sawmill
may pay. Mr. Graeber states
that W. T. Brown of Moore coun
ty has a mill operated by water
power and has been cutting an
average of 50,000 board feet of
timber each year for 25 years.
As a usual thing, however,
there is too much waste at the
average farm sawmill. The cir
cular saw, commonly used at
such mills, cuts one-fourth inch
of sawdust each time it passes
through the log, while the band
saw of commercial plants cats
only one-eighth inch. Neither is
the farm sawmill prepared to out
the highest class logs which re
quire careful milling to bring out
the quality of the wood. Nearly
all kinds o' trees require different
methods of milling aod these dif
ferent methods require extra
equipment. This the average
farmer cannot afford to put in,
states Mr. Graeber.
The beet solution of the whole
problem is for every connty in
North Carolina to have some kind
of wood working center where the
grower may sell his preduei any
day or every day in the year.

a newspaper is identified for
mendaciousness the moment it
begins to color or distort the

Prune Trees Lightly For Best Peaches
Peaches from tress lightly
prnoed have sold for 25 to 50
cents more per bushel than front
trees heavily pruned. While the
increases in yield per tree are not
so heavy, light pruning does give
better color, more uniform fruit,
higher marketability and a re
duced pruning cost.
"Due to the dense foliage
caused by heavy pruning, the
color of the peaches is poor and
insect and disease iujury is usu
ally greater," says M. E. Gardner
of the departmeutof horticulture
at State College. "The bearing
area is also restricted. Light
pruning together with careful
thinning always pays best.
But, states Mr. Gardner, the
grower must remember there are
three stages in pruning a peach
tree. These are, the forma
tive period when the tree is so
pruned as to get its scaffold
branches, the transition period
when the tree is changing from
heavy wood growth to fruit pro
duction and the fruiting period
when light pruning will pay best.
Mr. Gardner states that after the
formative period, the modem
tendency has been toward lighter
pruning. This has resulted in
decreased pruning costs, larger
yields, better color and more first
grade frnit per tree.
Light pruning, explains Mr.
Gardner, consists of th in ning th
tree enough to admit sunlight
and a free circulation of air with
a minimum of heading back.
Trees that have been lightly
pruned for a period of years have
a spreading habit and the limbs
bear down under the weight of
the fruit. This not only opeus
up the tree to admit sunlight but
puts most of the peaches with
in reach of ground pickers. It
also gives a better distribution of
frnit throughou the tree and
seems to establish a better balance
between that system and top.
Agronomists Agree On
Fertilizers For Tobacco.
Backed by years of study and
experimental data and found
practical by the experience of
u'ood tobacco farmers, certain
definite recommendations have
been made by the agronomy
workers of North Carolina as to
how the tobacco crop should be
fertilized this next season for ob
taining the highest quality of

In brief, these conclusions as

11. Williams, call for the use
of from 800 to 1200 pounds of
fcr Bister applied in the drill just
before transplanting and thor-i
otigiily mixed witli the soil. For
heavy soils used in growing the
bright flue-cured tobacco, an 8-3-5
mixture is recommended except
for grey soils with red subsoils
when an 8-3-3 is advised. For
the lighter or less productive soils
au8-4-G mixture is recommended.
Where sanddowu occurs, the
fertilizers should carry at least
two percent of magnesia derived
from the sulphate of potash-mag
nesia or from dolomilic limestone.
In mixing up these fertilizer
mixtures, the phosphoric acid
should come , from superphos
phate. The potash should co'me
from a combination of high grade
muriate with either high grade
sulphate of potash or sulphate
of potash magnesia or both. In
no case should the mixture con
tain over two per cent of chlorine.

'Mums Feed Heavy; M ust Be Divided
Chrysanthemums are hardy,
are beautiful around the home in
lato fall and when established
will live for many years.
"Yet they will not thrive in
definitely without transplanting,"
says Glenn 0. Randall, floricul
Lurist at the North Crrolina State
College. "When a planting of
chrysanthemums is once made
and becomes established it will
live for a number of years but a
olose observer will note that after
a year or so, the blossoms will not
be as large and the stems will be
come shorter. This is because
the flower is a very heavy feeder
and soon exhausts the plant food
in most soil types. Then, too,
the plants becomp so massed to
gether that there is not enough
room for the roots to feed."
For this reason, the best prac
t ce is to propagate new plants
from the original stock each year
This may be done easily, says
Mr. Randall, by taking soti-wood
cuttings from the old plants in
eai ly spring when the new growth
litis become three or four inches
long. Remove these new shoots
from the parent plants by cut
ting straight across the stem.
Remove at least two-thirds of the
leaf area and place the cuttings
in a sand-box iuimedately. In a
few days, rootlets will appear.
When these roots are about one
iuch in length, the young plants
are ready for setting.
In rooting the new cuttings it is
important to have the sand moist
but not wet. After the new cut
lings have set in the boil, culti
vate them carefully and add
plant food gradually.
by following this method, Mr.
Randall linds the home gardener
will have excellent, long-stemmed
and well-flowered plants that are

60 PER CENT OF
EAT NO BUTTER
American Table Delicacy
Unknown to More Than
Billion in Other Nations.
Chicago.?Sixty per cent of the j
population of the earth, or 1,032,000,-!
000 people, do not use butter and a
considerable per cent have never j
heard of It
This doubtless will astonish persons
unfamiliar with the history of foods j
and accustomed to butter on the home
table since Infancy. Similar popular
myths prevail regarding the length of J
time coffee, tea, and tobacco have j
been numbered among civilized lux
uries. The addiction of European
people and their descendants on this
side of the Atlantic to these pleasant j
stimulants dates back only a few hun- ;
dred years. All the conquests and
great exploits of the ancient and I
medieval world were achieved with
Butter as a spread for bread is
used only in a comparatively small
area of the earth, chiefly in northern
Europe and America. In other parts
of the world, olive oil, tallow drip
pings and coconut oil take the place
of butter in cooking and as a table
dish. In China, Japan, India and oth
er nations of southeastern Asia, where
rice is the staple food, no butter is
used and various fats and oils are
added to the cereal to give it flavor
and nutritive value.
Margarine has been an established
article of diet in Europe and Amer
ica since the reign of Napoleon III in
France when Ilippolyte Mege-Mourles
developed the method of manufactur
ing It. It was at first considered a sub
stitute for butter but now in several
European countries butter is a sub
stitute for margarine. In Denmark,
notably, one of the leading dairying
countries of Europe, it is aljnost a
universal custom atfiong the farmer*
to export their batter to England and
use margarine on their family table*. ^
No prejudice exist* In Europe \
against margarine and the inimical -
sentiment ugalnst it which developed
a decade or so ago In America and
which, from an economic view is dlf- ,
limit to understand, is gradually dls- ,
appearing. Margarine Is a wholesome ,
food made under thoroughly sanitary |
conditions and government Inspec
tion. It Is made only from the finest '
oils, vegetable or animal or both com
bined, milk, and salt and, Its manu
facture Is a source of Immense profit
to American farmers. As far as taste
goes, it Is difficult for even a con
noisseur to distinguish between the i
best quality of margarine and the best
quality of butter. As a spread for
bread, both butter and margarine are
considered by dietitians merely as
delicacies or what are known tech
nically as accessory food*. !
"Given un ordinary, every-day rea
sonably well-balanced diet for the av
erage man, or child," says Dr. Wil
liam D. Hlchardson, Internationally
famous scientist and dietitian, "it does
not make any difference from the
dietary standpoint whether the Indi
vidual eats margarine or butter and

ter of taste, preference, or economy.
