Every patriotic citizen of America
and Polk county should keep a few
profitable hens, especially during war
times' to furnish the home supply of
meat and eggs.
Polk county is the first county in
the state of North Carolina to secure
the One Day Schools from the office
of Poultry Investigations and Path
ology, N. C. Experiment Station,
West Raleigh, N. C., to be conducted
by Mr. J. E. Ivey.
The One Day Schools are to be held
at the following places:
1. Tryon, N. C, September 16, 9 a.
m., all day.
2. Greens Creek High School, Sep
tember 17, 8 a. m., all day.
3. Mill Spring School House, Sep
tember 18, 8 a. m4 all day.
4. Sunny View ; School September
19, 8 a. m., all day,1
5. Columbus N. C, September 20,
8 a. m., all day. ;
The school committee in each
school district where these schools
are conducted is recognized as a Poul
try Committee, and largely on them
will depend the success and usefulness
of these schools.
The above committees assisting the
county agent are responsible for all
the necessary arrangements for the
meetings, having a good attendance,
stir up enthusiasm and other things
to make the schools a success. Every
man woman and child in reach of
these schools whether from town or
country should avail themselves of
this opportunity to learn more about
poultry and what the poultry indus
try will mean to Polk county.
The following subjects will be dis
cussed in full. The proper methods
to use in culling out the non-producing
hens in your flock. The proper
way to msie, youfc &irs!s. How to care
for your young chicks. Feeds for the
young and adult birds. Housing
problems. The advisability of organ
izing a community egg circle. Some
time will be devoted to disease of
birds and how to treat them. How to
get rid of lice and mites.
At the close of the days' school Mr.
Ivey will go to a nearby farm and
give a practical demonstration of
"Culling the Farm Flock.
The poultry committees should go
to work, get a good attendance to
these meetings and strive to make
Polk county one of the leading poul
try counties in North Carolina and of
the entire South.

The life of the moonshiner is full of
troubles and anxiety these days. Mon
day revenue officer McFarland, of Co
lumbus, having been previously "tip
ped off" went out near the farm of
W. B. Kruse m hunt of a still. He
found it near the home of Kruse, on'
the Tomlinsqn land. Further inves
tigation led to the discovery of sever
al barrels of apple pomace in Kruse s
garage, which he claims were to be
used in the manufacture of vinegar,
but Mr. McFarland thinks differently.
It has been reported that large quan
tities of "Apple Jack" were being
sold in Tryon, and the revenue men
have been trying to locate the source
for some time.
The still was a thirty gallon capac
ity one, copper and erected in good
eshape, and showed signs of having
been previously run.
