N. C.. i. vonia, Ga.,4. and Rocky - Mount, N, ; C. utner shipments have also been made to other points." The prices realized on the hay rane- ed from $27.60 to $33 a ton." Now, isn't this a pretty how-to-do? asks the extension service workers nf the State College and Department of' Agriculture. New York' farmers are selling hay in North Carolina, realiz- mg a. ton 10 tnemselves, with one of the shortest growing seasons of the United States. North Carolina, a nat ural grass country and with an all-the- year-round growing season, payinr New York farmers $33 a ton for hay, when It Is one of the easiest grown and easiest handled crops that the State knows. An economic study of the hay situa tion in North Carolina reveals the fact iV.i il... 1- j . T we increased our acreage durine last yean by 160.0Q0 o-ico, uic acreage ior j.a was only 590,000. On this area, 684,000 tons were produced, worthaccording to a recent study of this subject, $14,364,- 000, ; In spite, however, - of this in creased acreage, this known value of the hay crop, farmers from all sec tions of the State import hay by the carload. It is true, say the extension work ers, that good cold cash can be realis ed on cotton and tobacco, but what is the use of spending this cash for food and feedstuff s grown out of the State, when these can be produced abundant- ly wunin xne state, as. Dr. Knapp has said, "the State should first buy a ... i M . . . ticket for home before plunging on the cotton and tobacco gamble.' North Carolina Casualties. Washington (Special).

North Carolina soon will be almost $1,000,000 richer if the State Tax Com mission succeeeds in collecting this amount as inheritance tax from the Reynolds estate" in .Winston-Salem. Ac cording to figures submitted by the manaeement of the estate the Tax Commission is assured of about $750,- 000 from the .heirs of the Winston-Sa lem magnate. .The commission, how ever, through' special, agents, is work ins- with & view of Retting a million dollars in taxes. The Reynolds estate is valued at $15,000,000 , in the financial statement to the Tax Commission. The commis eion thmks the-estate is worth more than the stated value. Special agents and the attorney of 4he inheritance tax division now are working on the prob- Wm of ascertaining the true value of the estate. Manv New Nurse.

CARLOAD CATTLE BOUGHT BY; BANK RECENTLY ORGANIZED CATTLE EXPECTED rTO BE CLUB IS A "GREAT SUCCESS. , ' .

Wilmington.- The People's -Savines Bank of this city has financed a car. load of blooded Guernsey cows for ani graaa secretary. His duties will farmers in the Castle Hayne section be to vlsit among lodges and drill de of the county, following ; the financing gree 8taffa. to instruct in the secret or a pig club in the county by the w nmmgton Savings & Trust Com pany. The latter venture turned out to be an amazing success, financially and otherwise, and the People's Bank scheme pormises not only improved dairy cattle, but increased milk sup ply, which is badly heeded here. Both ventures were handled through the iarm extension service under direc tion of County Agent J. P. Herring New Dances Dubbed Immoral. Asneyuie.

The big brick building is al most a complete loss, the damage amounting to between $30,000 and $40,000, which is only partially cover ed by Insurance.

At the last regular meeting of the board of trustees of the Orphan Home 25. new children were admitted. Opens Up Goat Parm. Albemarle. It seems that Stanly county citizens are not yet content with the already diversified Industries of the county. Not content with splen did cotton mills, with the only alumi num manufacturing plant in the "South and one of the .largest in the world, and with a reputation for growing the heaviest wheat in the world, one citi zen now comes along and starts what he rightly calls a goat industry. This , enterprising citizen is J. " D. Johnson, of Misenheimer, in the northern part of the county. Mr. Johnson -is already a farmer, and lum ber dealer and for pastime he has de cided to start the goat industry. Making a start with 125 of the goat tribe, Mr. Johnson says that he ex pects to increase this number as rapid ly as he can find people who nave goats to sell. Already a pasture of 100 acres has been enclosed with a wire fence and this pasture is amply sufficient for more than 200 of the goat kind. -" But raising, goats is only half the proposition. The 100-acre pasture has just .been cleared of timber and wood, and "immediately the weeds, grass and young sprouts snring up, it' is Mr. Gfat's business to keep this .growth eaten down until the stumps decay, when the land is ready for farming and another pasture must be prepared. l Mills Reduce Working Hours. Fayetteville. A decrease in work ing hours from 66 to 55 per week was announced by officials of the Cumber land County Cotton Manufacturing As sociation here. The operatives of the mills belonging to the association will be paid for the 55 hours work on a 60- hour scale. Music at Reidsville. Reidsville. Military band: or no military band, plenty of good band music will be heard at the 4th of July celebration in Reidsville. While the entertainment committee is waiting for developments in the question of a military band, they are leaving, noth ing undone to have lots of music here that day. , yhe Draper, band, 30 strong, and chesty : tooters. too, will be on hand, and the colored band will see to it that there is , an abundance of rag-time. Probably other bands and orchestras will be secured. Half Crop of Potatoes. ' v Beaufort.- Potato digging is in full swing here now and several carloads leave here every day for the northern markets. Digging began about two weeks ago but did not reach its maxi mum until this week. So 'far some eight or ten thousand barrels have been shipped from .this point and there will probably ; be ten or fifteen thousand more to follow, i The cror this year will not turn out more thar t half as, much as last year crop-which was nearly . 50,000 barrels. Prices, however, are much better. . A Few Hints' for Laundering. , Using an old sheet double It as many times as it will cover the board. This will make four or five thick nesses, which are laid smoothly and tacked on the board all at once. When the top layer becomes soiled, it Is cut oft and there Is the board with a clean cover. When covering ' the . ironing-board with a blanket or padding, tack it along the edges only, so that both sides and the ends are smoothly cov ered. Then make an unbleached iron ing sheet the size of board, with large end left open to slip on like a pillow case.' If well fitted, both sides of the board can be used; it will look neat and there will be no pins or nails to tear hands or clothing. A Handy Iron Cleaner. A very practical Jittle contrivance for use when ironing consists of a block of wood about five Inches square. Five holes are bored in this block and filled with beeswax. These are cover ed with a pfece of musllh. The other side of the block Is covered with emery-cloth. The emery side of the block Is used to rub the Iron on If the starch sticks and the wax side gives the iron smoothness. v Old flat-irons become rusty, but a Lady in It looks as. If the time were not far iway when women will discuss Vun Sersllks" Instead of ndennusllns, for silk has invaded the realm of cot ton and Is flourishing there astonish ingly. Just as the silk stocking Is not looked upon now as a luxury but as a necessity of good dressing, and its use enormously increased, so silk under garments are making pttice for them selves. Women find them desirable be cause they are fine and they prove to be as dainty 'and as durable as .fine batiste or other" delicately woven cot tons. And the sheen and "feejof silk are Insidious it is the easiest thing In the world to cultivate the silk habit and next to impossible to break it The shops are showing silk under clothes k that are moderately priced along with more silk undergarments that are high priced. But price means nothing 5 to the girl of today If she has It-ta buy the thing she wants when she wants it. There is a popular and a growing demand for silk un dergarments which means that the wanted -garments will be supplied in Increasing numbers and that the prices will not be likely to go higher. ' The silk most used for undergar ments is crepe de ' chine In white and flesh pink. For ornament, , hemstitch ing, French knots, simple embroidery and al or filet lace, especially In in sertions,' are all equally popular. Other wash silks, including taffeta, and.wash satins find advocates who like them as .well as crepe de chine. They all wash easily, the crepe looking espe cially well after It Is tubbed. They r should be wrung with wringer, not twisted In the hand, folded In a sheet and ironed while still a little- damp with an Iron that Is only moderately hot i : t ' -,.V An "undersllp of plain white taffeta appears in the picture, thla particular My j ' J" w ". ',.-"'--- iff MYmp coat of aluminum enamel paint makes them neat and clean. No. more' flakea of rust or smudge to drop off on white garments when Ironing. They can be washed and the heat does not affect the enamel, as It Is the kind used on radiators. One coat is sufficient, and a small can" will do for coating a num ber of irons. , V Useful Ironing Blanket. r Make an Ironing blanket for enV broidered articles and laces from a square of white outing flannel, and one of Turkish toweling, neatly bound to gether. The Turkish side Is used for . faces and insertions, as the loose threads in Ironing are forced up J through the lace, while the other side , Is used for embroideries. , For Cleaning and Polishing Iron. Saturate a cloth with water, wring partlajly dry, rubbing ; soap thorough ly on it. Place on several thicknesses of paper. Rub iron oveif It . several times, pressing hard, to remove starch and roughness. , The result is. surpris ing, as it makes the surface of lrpn perfectly clean and smooth. This, is the best and most economi cal way of cleaning Irons, doing away with the use of ironing wax or any, cleanser for Irons. .... Silk Attire model having a baby bodice and gatb ered skirt set on to a waist , band Many underslips are cut '--like a ; chemise, , without a waistband. The most popular silk garment la the en velope chemise of crepe de chine. It is worn over, the corset and without1 bloomers or drawers In warm weather.-' But there Is A final chapter to the story of silk underwear, , short and sweet and not ever destined to be sov Important as that which is told In the foregoing paragraphs. It Is written lfli georgette crepe. This very diaphanous and exquisite material makes corset covers and chemise that are the last word in daintiness and extravagance, for it Is sometimes used double, being otherwise too transparent. Jade in Millinery.. Jade green IS one of the new shade that Is catching on well In ' the local millinery trade. - Not only is it seen ; In various types of hats, including models in taffeta and split straw, but, it is ajso taking well in the trimmings Jade ostrich plumes . are shown in steadily increasing numbers, and are used to trim models both of a' similat -": shade and of black.
