I HUM THE FIRMS IN CHOWAN ■
By C. W. OVERMAN. Chowan County Agent J
Another new fruit grower was
added to Chowan’s list this week.
Preston Dail of Ryland communi
ty is starting with 100 peach trees
and may increase this to 200 or
300 this season, according to
County Agent C. W. Overman.
There is an excellent opportun
ity for fruit growing in Chowan
•County'. Mr. Overman says much
•of the soil is suited for peaches,
apples, grapes and other fruits.
There are some precautions to
he observed in selecting varieties
and the size of trees to be set.
Mr. Overman says that he has ob
served too large trees being or
dered. Just this week, Mr. Dail’s
shipment of 100 peach trees came
in excellent condition except
most of the trees were much lar
ger than necessary. D onot order
branched trees. In shipment,
many of the limbs on branched
trees become broken, often times
all of the limbs on one side of the
tree will be injured or broken
off. Unless the limbs on the oth
er side of the tree are cut off so
that all limbs will sprout uniform
ly a lopsided tree will result.

referred to the last Grand Jury

The judge centered his remarks
on acting upon bills of indict
ment, pointing out that it is not
the duty of the Grand Jury to
pass on the guilt or innocence
of a defendant, but merely to de
cide if enough evidence has been
produced to show probable guilt
to be placed on trial.
“You men are occupying a very
indispensable position.” said the
judge. “It is your duty to see
that not only the guilty face
trial, but also thatt those not
guilty are not punished. This
Court House should be a temple
of justice—equal justice for all
men. Were it not for the Grand
Jury, anybody could swear out a
warrant for a serious crime on
one man’s say-so. It wo>uld be a
dangerous situation to be able to
bring one to trial due to malice
or ill will, thus causing humilia
tion, embarrassment and great
expense. The Grand Jury is the
bulwark of freedom, so that it is
just as important to return a
true bill as not a true bill, de

Peach trees should be cut off to
about 3 feet high so that the scaf
fold limbs will develop low and
the tree maybe trained properly.
Pear and apple trees should be cut
off at about 4 to 41-2 feet high so
that they will branch properly.
For trees that give the best liv
ability and lend themselves best
to training, Mr. Overman has
found the following: Peach trees
3 to 4 feet high, June buds. Pear
and apple trees should be one
year whips 4 to 6 feet tall. Two
year grape vines are good.
There are varieties of apples,
peaches, grapes and other fruits
that ripen throughout the season.
Varieties vary considerably in
characteristics and quality. For
example. 3 to 5 peach trees, prop-.
er varieties selected, will give a |
ripening season ranging from
June through July and up into
August or about six to eight
weeks. Mr. Overman says that
he or any other agriculture work
er will be glad to assist in se
lecting fruit varieties to fit their
carrying out their duties.
