_THE GLEANER IS8JJED ITKkY THUMDAT. J. D. KERNODLE, Editor. $1.00 A YEAR, IN ADVANCE. Entered at tne Pontoffloe at Oretrain. N. 0.. ?? eeooud-nlaaa matter. GRAHAM, N. 0., NOV. 22, 1928. Senator Borah made such a poor job of collecting a fund to cover the ?2G0,000 of "oil money" that went' into the 1924 Republican presiden tial campaign fund that be is go ing to return what he got on the venture. lie collected only about ?7.500. What Coolidge will do after he steps down and out on the 4th of next March is bothering some peo ple. lie knows; but be is not broadcasting it. The extremely anxions ones will haye to wait till the time comes, then they will see. After maintaining a sphinx-like silence for over seven years, it is hardly probable that be will break down and go to talking at this late d ay. 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 which lie is to be tried at the De cember term of Wake Superior court. 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 woodlots." 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. Did You Ever Stop To Think! (Copyright 1928) By Edson R. Waite, Shawuee, Okla Willard Cooper, editor of the Aew London (Conn.) Ilav says: ' ? ^our PaPer cannot ex ist if it makes a practice of distorting news in anyway ? it soon must go out of business if it expresses bias?off its edi torial page?toward any .one political party, any one class of citizens or even if it appears unduly biased toward one of the sexes. The radio is largely responsi ble?that and the telephone and telegraph, and cheaper maga zines and books. Fifty vears ago a newspaperpublished onlv such news as conformed to its editorial policy, if ;i paper happened to be Republican it printed only good news about Republican candidates, only de rogatory ^ news about Demo crats. Similarly a .Democratic! editor's tenure of office would) he brief indeed if he permitted a Republican candidate to air his views in the paper. | To-day a newspaper which withholds news is speedily sin gled out by its readers, just as a newspaper is identified for mendaciousness the moment it begins to color or distort the news. People do not rely al together on the newspapers for their information. They get a great deal out of books and magazines, and they get a great deal out of the radio. The radio broadcast both Re publican and Democratic con ventions this year. Listeners |in heard the speeches just ex actly as they were made in the convention halls at Kansas City and Houston. If any newspaper had descended to false reporting of either conven tion, a large proportion of its readers would immedia t e 1 y have been aware of the jour nalistic crime. That paper | would lose circulation. The radio can never supplant the newspaper ; it lacks the facilities for condensation of a vast amount of information in a small space. But it serves as as a check on the news, and it is useful to the public in demon strating the validity of the af fairs which they do not hear but must read about Similarly, fraudulent advertising no longer can survive- Newspaper readers speedily identity tbe too artful advertiser, and avoid his store 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 leaf. At a recent meeting held at the North Carolina State College, the agronomists of the four Southern lobac'co growing States and rep resentatives of the United States Department of Agriculture pool ed their information and arrived at conclusions which they believe will be of value to the North Carolina tobacco grower. In brief, these conclusions as given for bright tobacco by Ih-of. 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. The notrogen shonl 1 come from one-half high-grade organic ma terials such os cottonseed meal or fish scrap aud the other half from urea or the standard inorgauic sources such as nitrate of soda. lu growing dark tobacco, GOO to 1,000 pounds of 8-3-3 mixture made from the same materials is reccommended. '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 a delight about the home each fall. A "blanket" df earth is a good thing for bramble fruit, bushes in cold sections of the country, es pecially where cold, dry winds prevail. Gently bend down the plants all the way, lengthwise of the row and cover them with a -few inches of earth. In large patches this can be doue after the plants have been bent over and fastened by plowing a furrow over the row from each side. In the spring uncover the plaute and straighten up the canes.

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 out them. 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 the one he chooses Is entirely a mat ter of taste, preference, or economy. He may choose to eat one or the oth er or neither without any appreciable influence on his growth, health, strength or physical or mental energy. Ills diet usually Is, and should be, so balanced and varied that he Is not dependent on the small quantity of fat which Is spread on bread to make it palatable."
