DECEMBER \% 1»- LOCAL MAN GIVES VIEWS ON FUTURE MARTIN COUNT\ SHOWS WHERE MARTIN COUNTY IS BELOW THE BEST BUT HAS OPPORFTUNITIES I notice in each issue of the North Carolina News letter for the pasi few weeks that South. Carolina, Geoer gia -and Virginia are seeing the goo > qualities of L' .J Old North State. Some of the things wnich they /are say ing are sufficient to atten tion of all Carolinians. First, South Caioiina says that our interest in ou' system of public schools are surpassed by none in the Union, and that many ol' die used to be greatest'states are pal.onizing after our system. Virgin ia notes that our agricultural suc cess in tiie last few years has bet., a siuiining one.

It is tyue that North Carolina rank; Hi at' in ,pei acre value of crops with, even her shortage in live stock, which ■riuy be purtly accounted for by hei ji.u'i u0 and a fraction acres per t'anr., which is being largely over come by many of out western counties like Buncombe, which has won first •iiemiuin twice and second premium onte in our state fair for counties during the past three years. "South Carolina hits the key note." Bun combe is. a mountainous hill and dale county and as 1 remember, a count, of an average of 3b acre farms com posed of fock ojay and gravel. The apple from wfiffn are noted not O'.t'y in tiie si ate but nationally famed, un'J nl.-o t ne of the greatest potato coun ties in tRe state and famed for its diiiryii.g uidustry. She does not grow either cotton or 'tobacco. Note thi I, tho.-e who know Buncombe say that diverification with all the crops adap ted to her soils and cooperation with national an dstate departments of ag licuiture is wherein her great rirhc. lie. tome are wont to say, Weil, we can't grow fruit, but we can giow co'.ton, tobacco, peanuts, etc., aiel we are glowing these. This is true aiiil vary much like a nian who gave u description* of his neighbor farmer Si... ng lie wus just as good a farm •r ab he was twenty years ago. This is disturbingly true of we '"urmeif d'iwn Martin county. We u e just about as rich from growing crops of the money producing kind to the exclusion of diversification with crops of the soil improvement type as we were twenty years ago, no richer, no poorer. Struck the happy medium, haven't we? Not all dl the fanners are doing this and we are proud of this fact. As to fruit growing, 1 re j. ember when we grew horse app es, ri. 1 und white Junes, Winesaps, Shock ley s iiid others as large us • "i fist ami din it by punting out .tin wishiug tiieein well.

Mogre eounty, which was thought, to be a worthless sand bed is now one of the finest peach producing counties |n the United States, Georgia and Jeisey not excepted. When this wa. learned, other crops were wisely planned and diversification practiced until More promises still new fields of venture. Another demonstration that "knowledge is power." Men and women have moved from North Carolina looking for new fields of wealth, and little did they know that the ywere leaving the best be hind them. What we are, ia what our ances tors and associates have been, and that which we have drawn from the school of experience, many of ua to day are stumbling over obsta teles that have long since been removed. Uwe would look over the record* on our problems, many of ua would advance ear business to the place that it would probably take fifty years to attain, in ' the school of experience.

McCull, garden specialist, of ne North Carolina Extension ser vice. One of the best ways to build up this fertility is by adding humus or organic mutter to the soil. \ Mr. McCall finds that the lack of farm animals in the* state causes a decided shortage of barnyard manure iwid for that reason I wives or woods mold should be used. A good idea for the prospective garJener' would be to gather the fallen leaves, place them in piles and permit them to de cay. A better coniposit is formed when the leaves aro mixed with the barnyard jnanure and soil. A combination thnt Mr. McCall has found quite effective can be made up •of five parts of leaves, one part of manure and one soil. The gardner should allow this mixture to stun ua i cat on and then work it into the soil. Not only will this compost add the necessary humu» but it will also add some other fertilizing ele ment as wel., When this organic matter has been added to the soil, larger amounts of fertilizer can be used with profit.

IK.— Now while the trees are in the dormant stage is the time to spray the orcharu, says U. P. Pnyne, pAtenSKU. horticulturist fur the .No.tli Carolina intension service. Mr. Payne stales that pruning can be done now without injury and that working over the old neglected frees will pay well for tne time uiid mon ey spent. It is also wise not to neg lect the new oichurd just set, because it is a lact that only about lb per cent of the trees sold by nurseries ever come into bearing. Tnis is large ly due to the fact that "the trees are neglected and not handled properly. the division of horticulture believes that North Carolina can be made the second California for horticulture if fruit growing and gardening receive more . and better attention. Fruit growing is just coming into its Own in this slate and this is especially true of the apple region of western Carolina. Growers in this section should take care of their trees now, urges Mr. Payne. f- He says, "the ultimate object of all pruning is fruit production. There are a number ot things to bear in. mind regarding this. The heaviest pruhing should be done during - the first four years after the tree is set. Then the tree is The next five to eight years, the tree should be pruned .only to keep it in good shape. This is the period of change from growth to 'heavy fruit produc tion and is the most critical in the history of the tree."
