The Dogwood lends to the industrious

is more beloved In the sections of
the county where it grows than our
native flowering dogwood. Throughout
the mountains of Northwest
: Carolina nothing so attracts and
! fns&risifcs tourists :\f the dogwood
: blooms of early May.
Strange as it may appear; dogwood
does not grow wild anywhere
in the world hut North America.
Not many r.f us know, perhaps, that
there arc some 30 varieties distin- |
| guLshed in this country, varying j
from the low flowering shrub variety
about id /Jjchcs high, to a giant
west coast tree that sometimes
[ grows to 700 feet in height. This
'rynstent" "tree" nas ti-nvcrs \wice as
large as other varieties and sometimes
with six petals instead of
four. There is also a dogwood variety
that grows rather large, 50 feet
high sometimes, with white berries
instead of rod. found mostly in Arkansas
and ^astern Texas.
The Gaston County terracing unit
has been running from daylight to
dark during recent weeks in the attempt
to terriice as much land as pes
sible before planting begins.

Cor.trary 16 popular opinion, most -j
wild dogwood suffers from insufficient
pruning, and judicious gather
mrr of dogwood sprays can be aci
compiished without any harm to the
| trees whatever. Promiscuous pulling
ai:.i splitting off convenient
branches, however, frequently ruins
th? tree.
Only a native of the flowering !
dogwood section in this country *
'.voukl have devised so picturesque
a motif for a croch??ted bedspread. ^
and only an e>:i orienced artist could ^
have patiently worked out tiiis deliglitfui
design in terms of simple ^
SHh pracucai directions so that all ^
women interested in crochet would
riii.i it easy to follow. It is truly a
native handicraft *vrt-subject. that m
?will appeal"to many betTv lov ers of g
dogwood and all who crochet. ' '
Full directions for making this
beautiful dogwood bespread in
three natural colors? Green, Yellow
and White, may be. obtained for the
asking at the office of the Watau.
