Cigarettes Pushing Tax Up Increase of nearly six million dol lars in internal revenue collections in North Carolina, largely the cig arette tax, is shown for the last six months of the calendar year just ended, as compared with collections for the same period in 1932, Charles H. Robertson, collector for the North Carolina district reports. During the past six months, the half of the fiscal year, collections reached $120,066,508.35, an in crease of $25,927,899.29 over the $94,138,619.06 cdllected in the last six months of 1932. More than one-third of this was shown for December, last month of the year, in which collections reached $24, 8899,515.88, as compared with col lections of $14,259,896.61 for De cember, 1932, a gain-of $10,639, 619.37. Since practically all of this is to bacco tax, and largely on cigarettes, the huge gain is indicative of a great improvement in the tobacco industry, confined largely to Wins ton-Salem, Durham and Reidsville. PROGENY TESTING ^ For ages, men and' animals have been judged by their ancestors. A long pedigree was a guarantee of excellence. Now, there is a tendency to say, "I don’t care so much about your father. What I want tj know is —What kind of marks is your son getting in school?” At least, this is the test that is j now being applied to animals to be _j .. 1_j* . ... . t. • | WJVU JLVS1 UlkkUUkg puipuava- lk JO it sensible point of view. If you are breeding chickens to produce heavy egg-layers, the records of their off-spring form the best evidence ! of your flock’s value. I Data of this kind is particularly , useful in the case of males, for males have just as much influence as females on the quality of their * progeny, and the descendants of a " male breeder are always much more ■ numerous than the descendants of any single female. It not infre quently happens that males of good 1 pedigree are found actually to be of low value as breeders when accu t rately appraised by progeny testing A great deal of careful detail work is necessary in carrying out . progeny testing. All breeders and I chicks must be identified by band ! ing, the mating that produces each jegg must be known, the hens must hbe trap-nested, and each egg njust s be marked. V Then records must be kept of the - history of each egg and of the s' chick it produces, with special re i ference to the egg production of each female kept for that purpose. The necessary blanks for the* pur pose are published by most of the state agricultural colleges and by the U. S. Department of Agricul ture. e Properly kept, these records will show just what kind of off-spring can-be “expected from each mating. This method of breeding is un . questionably the best that has so far been devised for improving breeds * and developing animals along any I desired lines. While chiefly of interest to the expert breeder, it is bound in time to affect the wohle poultry indus try and should tend to reduce some of the present hazards of the busi , ness. Certainly the buyer of eggs or live birds from progeny-tested ; flocks should be able to figure his own returns with greater confi dence. Progeny-testing methods are be ing increasingly used by breeders and many of them are featuring 1 this fact. $ Statewide Checker Contests Announced Checker contests on an elaborate scale, commencing in local fertilizer stores and finishing with a play off of sectional winners at the State Capital, have just been an nounced by the Barrett Company, distributor of Arcadian, the Ameri can-made nitrate of soda. Valu able medals and fertilizer will be awarded as prizes. The play is opens to farmers and agricultural folks only, it was dis closed. Elimination games will be conducted in local fertilizer stores during January, store winners to qualify as cpntestants in the county play-offs which will be held soon. Sectional and State tournaments will follow. - "There are no obligations or ctnnoc offorltorl1 tn tliAco AAntAcfe” O ' it was stated by a Barrett repre sentative. "This is merely the company’s way of encouraging farmers to become better acquaint ed with the high quality American product which Arcadian nitrate of soda <<as proven itself to be.” Here is a real opportunity for players with local reputations to sharpen up their game and go out after bigger things. There should be plenty of good fun and excite ments in store for those who like the game. Further details can be obtained by calling.at any of the local fer tilizer stores. BABE RUT El WANTS BAT TO MEET KIDNAPERS Babe Ruth was incredulous, then slightly perturbed when he learned that he was vaguely listed as a kid naping prospect in the archives of Verne Sankey, fugitive mid-west kidnaper. "Well, I sure hope they get that guy,” he said. "I never got any letters from him or anything but I don’t want him coming my way unless I can get my hands on a bat. "Say, he’s liable to give some other fellows bad ideas.” The Babe scaled in at 23 5 pounds and stands considerably over six feet tall. Fie is not considered ex actly a tractable kidnaping pros pect. TO EXHUME BODY The body of Leoda Childress, 18 year-old Wilkes county girl found mysteriously shot to death at the home of her foster parents some days ago, will be exhumed, Solicitot John R. Jones, has announced. This course had been decided upon tc trace the course of the bullet which ended the girl’s life. ^ Meanwhile, Andrew Smoot, 27-year-old textile worker of Schoolfield, Va., charged with the murder, clings to his pre vious story that he was asleep in his father's home when the girl was killed. Turkeys, Shirts And Dress Stolen Mr. Samuel E. Sloop, well-known farmer of the Miranda neighborhood of Rowan county whose home is located near highway No. 150 was shy on turkey at Christmas. Some thrifty purloiners visited his farm a few nights before Christmas and stole four of his fine turkeys, and passing by a clothes line in' the back yard, took therefrom four shirts and a dress. Wash day was rather cloucfy and damp, hence the clothes did not dry out sufficiently to "take in’’ and were left to the temptation of the thieves. Mr. Sloop was awakened by the noise of the fosvls on the premises and reached the front of the house just in time to see two men emerge from the side of the road and enter an automobile and drive away. Mr. Sloop said a gun was not handy, at the time he saw the car leave, or a pot-shot may have been taken. Moral: Don’t raise turkeys too close to the highway unless they are securely housed at night, and don’t [leave clothes on the line after dark. —Mooresville Enterprise. |PWA Allotments | For North Carolina i Washington—The Public Works administration has made an allot ■ ment of $103,000 to North Caro lina for buildings and beaches in twenty localities along the coast, j Southern Pines received $42,000 I from the Public Works administra tion for water improvements, Shel | by, $11,0000 to construct a two | story and basement addition to the existing high school building for negro pupils.

Mrs. Wilma Lanier slashed her wrists at her home in Mocksville, in an attempt to commit suicide. She is 24, and a member of one of Davie county’s prominent families. It is reported that she has been de spondent since the accidental death of her husband, T. B. I.anier, on December 18.

Warren (above), Cornell University, monetary adviser to President Roosevelt, stat^ -that in his opinion we cannot retuili to a i metallic standard now . . . unless protected by some kind of a “safety valve. ’ ’ DENIED LIBERTY IN SEARS PLOT Philadelphia—Reduction of his $10,000 bail was denied to William F. Schultze, who admitted sending threatening lettters to Lesing J. Rosenwald, millionaire philanthrop ist and board chairman of Sears Roebuck & Co. 1 Judge Francis Shunk Brown, I Jr., denied a writ of habeas cor Ipus to reduce the bond. Immediately after the argument on the bail reduction motion Schul tze was returned to Moyaxensing prison to await trial because he is unable to provide the bail. He was arrested last December after numerous letters signed ’’Twenty Thieves,” demanding $3 0,000, had been received by Rosenwald. DESPERADO DIES Wilbur Underhill, hit by 13 bul lets in a gunfight with officers to avoid arrest, lingering for days in the hospital at the state prison at McAlestcr, Okla., died from his wounds. He was the terror of three states, and a desperado of daring type. Most, of his gang ! has been rounded up, either cap tured or killed. His wife is among ! the number under arrest. j NOVEMBER FOREST FIRES j North Carolina had 452 forest fires in November, 3 5 more than high reported for March of last year. The fire menace was in creased by the very dry conditions 'prevailing in the state throughout the fall months.

If you are having aches and pains every month, heed the WARNING. See what is wrong. Treat the CAUSE of the trouble. When womanly aches and pains are due to a weak, run-down condi tion, take CARDUI. It has been used by women for over 50 years. It is a purely vegetable medicine and it cannot harm you. Thousands of women have said that when they had built up their strength with the help of Cardui, real relief was obtained and their general health and feeling of well-being improved. * If you suffer this way, try Cardui, which you can get at the drug store.
