Stock Raising as an Industry and
as a Source of Supply of Needed
Washington, D. C. March 9 Ac
cording to the report on the soil sur
vey ef Randolph county, N. C, recent
ly made by the Bureau of Soils of the
U. S. Department of Agriculture in
co-operation with the North Carolina
Department of Agriculture, many o:
the soils of the county a -e deficient
in humus and consequently do not,
yield as good crops as they read:,
would if green manure crops we.-,
plowed under and barnyard manure
used more freely. The soil specialists
state the best results with crop rota
tions would be had where rotations
are so arranged that clover or cow
peas can be turned under at the tinit
of breaking the land, and where a hi,
eral application of lime is made eithc.
immediately before or immediately
after breaking. The manure, they be
lieve, could be secured and at thr
same time a profitable industry insti
tuted, if stock raising were more gen
erally practiced. The stock raising
industry, they believe, offers excel
lent opportunities because the soils of
the greater part of the county are
well suited to the production of corn,
clovers, and small grains. The barn
yard manure obtained from the stock
would make the soils capable of pi .
ducing better clover and grain crops
The turning under of such crops as
clover, cowpeas and rye and the ad
dition of barnyard manure would,
they believe, be decidedly beneficial
in the case of the Cecil coarse sandy
loam, a brownish gray to reddish
brown, because coarse sandy loan
with a red, stiff clay subsoil. TJiit
soil is well suited to corn, cotton,
sweet potatoes, and vegetables, and
on it apples and peaches are grown
for home use. The yields of wheat,
oats and clover are low.
The Cecil fine sandy loam, whicl
is well suited to the production of :
number of crops, the report says, )r
a strong soil but a large part of '
type is in poor condition, owing main
ly to the depletion of humus through
the removal of vegetable matter and
because of the practice of shallov
plowing. The soil, which is at pres
ent devoted chiefly to corn, wheat
oats, cowpeas and clover, is also well
suited to cotton, sweet potatoes, Irisr
potatoes, and garden vegetables.
Similarly, the Cecil clay loam, oiiu
of the most even surfaced soils of ttiv
county and probably its strongest Ui
land, has many areas which are low in
humus and need deep breaking, plow
ing under of green crops, and liming.
This soil, when properly treated, is
admirably adapted to the production
of corn, wheat, oats, clover and cotton,
the yields of the latter being ',i to 1
bale per acre.
The Cecil clay is somewhat dif-
ficult to till, but requires the same
treatment as the other Cecil series.
This soil is adapted to the production
of com, wheat, oats, clover and grass
The lack of humus also affects
number of the Durham soils, whio
are characterized by the grayish col
or of the surface and yellow color
of the subsoil. The Durham coarse
sandy loam is deficient in humus, and
if clover or cowpeas are plowed un
der, corn, wheat, oats, and cotton will
show a decided increase. This sou it
also adapted to the production of
bright yellow tobacco, and on it Irish
potatoes, sweet potatoes, sorghum
peanuts, apples, peaches, grapes and
garden vegetables do well, although
these are grown only for home con'
sumption. The Durham sandy son
which is excellent for bright tobacco
sweet potatoes, cantaloupes, watei
melons, Irish potatoes, cucumbers
garden peas, peanuts, and sorghum
is in many instances in a low state 01
cultivation, largely owing to the fact
that it has been greatly depleted ot
humus and needs the plowing under
of rye, clover and cowpeas, or the ad
dition of barnyard manure.
The greater part of the Durham
fine sandy loam is also low in humus,
This soil, in other parts of the State,
has proved to be well adapted to the
production of tobacco and cotton,
though in Randolph county at pres
ent only a small acreage is devote
to these crops.
Where the Durham fine sandy loam
is used for tobacco an acreage appli
cation of 200 to 800 pounds of a 9-6-"
or 19-4 fertilizer is made, and the
yields range from 600 to 1,000 pounds
per acre, f or corn, applications 01
150 to 200 pounds per acre if an 8-2-i
mixture are made. Yields 01 10 to 4(.
bushels ner acre are obtained. Ctn
ton produces from one-third to one
bale per acre, witn about tne sani
fertilizer treatment as is practiced
with com. The greater part of th
type is low in humus.
On other soils, such as the George
ville silt loam, the planting of clovev
is recommended on the more roiling
lands and hillsides, to prevent wash
inc and to furnish pasturage for cat
tle. This soil yields from 15 to 45
nusneis 01 corn per acre, averaging
about 20 bushels; 5 to 20 bushels of
wheat, 20 to 35 bushels of oats, and
1-3 to 2-3 of a bale of cotton. The
yields of cotton on this type are con
siderably decreased by the eariy
frosts, which prevent the full matu
rity of the crop.
The Georgeville silty clay loam
which is well suited to the produc
tion of corn, wheat, oats and clovt-i,
13 another soil which needs deep
breaking, the addition of humus, and
liming. It is a strong soil, easily
built up to a high state of product
iveness, but on account of its heav
nature it has a tendency to clod, es
pecially if plowed when moisture con
ditions are unfavorable.
The Alamance silt loam, which con
sists of a smooth, mellow, light-gru.v
to almost white silt loam, is for the
most part in poor physical condition
It is decidedly deficient in humus,
and in the poorly drained spots is
liablf to be acid. In such spots, r.n
in? and drainage are necessary. It
used principally for growing corn,
wheat, oats, cowpeas and clover.
The Iredell sandy loam, a gray Vu
brownish-gray light sandy loam or 1
loamy sand, is well adapted to urn j
production of tobacco, corn, cotton and !

The Congaree silt loam, typically
a brown or chocolate-colored sin
loam, is commonly subject to ovei-
flow during heavy freshet, which de
lays tilling in the spring. The sou
is especially adapted to the produc-
tion of corn. The fine sandy loam
areas are well suited to watermelons,
Wheat, oats and grasses do well, hut
owing to the overflows and the fact
that most or this soil is used for corn,

The report of the soil survey, 01
which the foregoing is a brief sum

points, consists of 34 printed pages

After dealing with the early history
of farming and industry in the count,
the report further says:

county. One or two milch cows, which
furnish' milk and butter for home us.,
are kept on each farm. Each farmer

Although the ajrriculture of Ran
dolph county has shown remnrkaOiM
progress during recent years, there
is still room for impmwrrrent in the
methods generally p-nctieed. In the
preparation of the land for wbeat
repeated deep breakings followed by
a series of harrowings have become
the general rule rather than the ex
ception, owing to the better results
obtained. Land intended for other
crops is also broken deeply in late
summer or early fall and allowed to
absorb the winter rains. Best re
sults with crop rotations are ban
where the rotations are so arranged
that clover or cowpeas can be tumeu
under at the, time of breaking the
land and where a liberal application
of lime is made either immediately
before or immediately after breaking.

If a child breathes with his mouth
open, it is often a sign that growths
called adenoids, are growing behind
his nose. Children with adenoids of
ten speak indistinctly, snore when
asleep, t-xem mentally dull, catch
dipththf;ria more easily, and hpve
more severely than other children.
Any phyxician will explain how these
unnatural growths may be removed.
Children's ears should be frequent
ly cleanwed with a little piece of soft
moist cotton, wound around a match,
followed by a dry piece. The same
piece should not be used twice or put
from an ear into the other,
Every child should be provided with
a clean handkerchief daily, two chil
dren never using the same handker
chief. People with poor teeth cannot chew
food well and therefore suffer from
indigestion. The child should be
trained to brush the teeth every
morning iand evening, using warn.
water, neither very hot nor cold
this will injure the enamel or hard
covering of the teelh.
Frequent bathing in summer helps
to avoid prickly heat, keeps the body
cool, anil brings healthful sleep. A
warm bath with a little sponging off
with roM water is the thing for tne
child. The hands and face should be
washed before aeb meal to keep di
ense germs out of the food and mouth.
The head should be carefully wash
ed at least once in two weeks wit'
fonp and warm water. Keeping the
head clean keeps away dandruff, and
of course will prevent the growth of
lice. Alter washing head,, all soap
should bo carefu'ly rinsed out and the
hair allowed to dry well before como
ing. The best time to wash the head
is at night. It should be carefully
dried brfore the child goes to bed.
If the child's head has in some way,
at school or otherwise, become infect
ed with lice, it is necessary to remove
them at once, or the;, will spread very
quickly ami cause a sore head. For
boys the quickest treatment is to have
the hair cut closely, the head carefully
washed and a little tincture of lark
spur applied to kill the vermin.
If any slight skin eruption appears
on the child and a bath or laxative
does not take it away, the doctor
should be consulted. It may be some
unpleasant skin disease that will keep
the child out of school, and a little
careful attention immediately may
avoid years of trouble.
A child should not Le allowed to go
to school on wet days without rubbers
and an umbrella. ,lhc cost is saved
many times over as a result of thi
lessened amount of ilhio;-3. A child
who sperds several hours with wet or
damp shoes on will nearly always
show symptom. of sore throat soon
after. The shoes and stockings should
be changed immediately on entering
the house, and the feet thoroughly
dried if they are in any wav damn.
The clothing of school children
should be light but vnrm. Garments of
pure wool shrink and ore not economi

are less expensive and wear better.

i'o make this a little more practical,
let us see what foods are found 111 th
child's simple menu.
Diet From two to Three Year.
Milk, eggs, pulp of ripe, baked ba
nana, oaUed peur, baked apple, cooked
cereal, cream soups (liome-iiiade),
such us cream of celery, rice, tomato,
potato; the pulp of a few thoroughly
cooked vegetables (puree), peas, as
paragus, squash, corn. Orange juicu
und prune pulp are invaluable in th
small child's dietary.
Simplicity in Feeding.
Avoid too much and too many things
at the same meal. From one to threw
articles are, sufficient. Sweets, except
natural sugars, are bad for children.
Honey, pulp of prunes, and sthsr
sweet fruit, sponge caka aad bakd
custards may be given.
Whole Wheat Mush.

Food For Old Age.
Since the process of waste is later
years is much more rapid than that
of assimilation, it stands to reasoaj
that foods for old age should be none
the less nourishing; but much less
in quantity than that needed for ac
tive life. When the organs of masti
cation are inefficient, foods should be
minced or ground whenever possible.
Protein Foods For the Old.
Young tender chicken, game, scrap
ed beef (broiled slightly); salt should
be added after the food is cooked. A
little lemon juice used instead SS salt
is better, as it is an aid to the liver
and makes the fiber of the meat more
