Cllassified according to their
form, these little trouble-makers
are "baccilli” and "cocci”; those
words are plural; one of the first
sort is a baccillus; one of the second
is a coccus. "Baccillus” means
rod-shaped; "coccus” means shap
ed like a bead or a round berry.
The baccilli make exceedingly
bad company for their host. The
mightly tubercle baccillus is known
and dreaded—has baffled mankind
for centuries in efforts to stop its
depredations. It is one of the small
est of bacteria, and, hardest to find.
Imagine a hair a thousand times too
small to be seen with the naked eye
—and the hair cut into a hundred
millian short sections ....
] We have the tubercle baccil
jlus, the typhoid baccillus, the colon
baccillus, and a number of others—
all known as "bacteria.” They are
rod-shaped. When found under
the powerful microscope they must
be stained with powerful dyes made
for that purpose. They are invisi
ble unless treated with stains.
The cocci—the bead-shaped—
are numerous and many of them
deadly. I think of nothing more
dangerous than the meningococcus.
The pneumococus works havoc in
the human lung; and the streptoco
ccus—at least three varieties—no
greater villain known. Many
American school children talk about
"strep infections.” Too often this
"bug” must be cut after again and
again—not always with success, we
are sorry to acknowledge.
Staphyllococci are so named
from their different groupings
when seen under the microscope.
They are not so formidable as the
streptococci; but all of the "cocci”
are pus-producers—a fact worth
remembering. It as also worth re
membering that, of all the stuff
peddled as "antiseptic,” most of
them are not worth carrying home!
The kids of Salisbury should not
trample down a man’s lawn, simply
because he puts up a "No Trespass”
Satsfaction is felt by many per
sons when heavy taxes are levied on
producers, which they will pay by
raisng their prices to consumers.
Due To Constipation
“I have used Thedford’s Black
Draught several years and find
it splendid,” writes Mr. G. W. Hol
ley, of St. Paul, Va. “I take it for
dizziness or headache (due to con
stipation). I have never found
anything better. A short while
ago, we began giving our children
Syrup of Black-Draught as a laxa
tive for colds and little stomach
ailments, and have found it very
satisfactory.” ... Millions of pack
ages of Thedford’s Black-Draught
are required to satisfy the demand
for this popular, old reliable, purely
vegetable laxative. 25<t a package.
“Children like the Syrup.”

yHE question of whether or not a
woman’s place is in the home
may never have been settled defi
nitely, but she will spend most of
her time at home if she does her
washing by the methods pictured
The peasant women in their dirt
floored homes, seem to take it for
granted that washday means hard
labor and tedious rubbing. Appar
ently modern methods of launder
ing with scientific soap discoveries,
such as Oxydol, which reduce wash
ing time to a bare minimum, have
not yet done their part toward the
emancipation of these women of the
country regions of Czechoslovakia.
Enjoy Annual Meeting
Farm and Home week, now in
session at State Sollege, means more
to the hundreds of farmers present
than a period for studying problems
The original farmers’ conven
tions which began 32 years ago
have grown in size and scope until
the annual Farm and Home weeks,
which succeeded the conventions,
now touch virtually every phase of
But that is not all. The men and
women who gather here from farms
over the State have opportunity to
mingle with one another, broaden
their acquaintances, exchange ideas,
and develop a more cosmopolitan
point of view.
However, the Farm and Home
week officials have not forgotten
that there are many concrete pro
blems to be solved, said Charles A.
Sheffield. Executive secretary
Many of the problems arising dur
ing the past year tax the ingenuity
of trained experts. Their solution
is often found in open discussions
between farmers who encounter
them in daily life and specialists
who study them from a scientific
All work and no play is just as
bad for adults as it is for children,
according to Farm and Home week
leaders. And so the program has
been designed to give the attend
ants an enjoyable vacation amid the
pleasant surroundings at the col
The style show, trips around the
capital city, addresses by AAA
authorities, practical demonstra
tions, round-table discussions, stud
ies in home and farm management,
and athletic contests all go into the
making of a well balanced program.
Austrian Winter Peas
Suggested For Fall
Though all three of the winter
growing legumes commonly planc
:d in North Carolina each fall are
nearly equal in value for forage and
>oil improvement, it appears that
the seed of the Austrian pea is
tomparatively low in price as com
nared with crimson clover and
retch,” says Enos C. Blair, exten
don agronomist at State Colleye.
'Field demonstrations show that
when other things are equal, crim
ion clover, vetch and Austrian
Winter peas make about the same
/ield of hay. They also give about
the same increse in soil fertility
when turned under; but, for some
season crimson clover seed and
/etch seed are high in price this
ieason and if the winter peas may
be purchased at a less price there is
no good reason why they may not
be substituted for the vetch and
Blair says the price of crimson
clover seed is nearly three times and
the price of vetch seed is over twice
that being asked for Austrian wint
er p«as. Assuming that 20 pounds
of either clover of vetch or 30
pounds of Austrian peas is the right
amount to sow on one acre of land,,
the cost of seeding the vetch is SO
percent more than for the peas and
the cost of seeding crimson clover
is about 200 percent more.
He suggests that all growers plan
ning to sow a winter cover crop
this fall, investigate the possibility
of planting the Austrian peas.
More Income Possible
From Better Poultry
The rapid increase in egg pro- 5
iuction over the increase in the i
lumber of hens in North Carolina i
during the past decade attests a
decided improvement in the quality :
md management of poultry flocks. <
Yet there is still more room for :
development in the State’s poultry
industry, says Roy S. Dearstyne, :
lead of the State College poultry
The income of $13,200,000 from 1
the sale of chickens and eggs in
1933 is far short of the figure
which can be reached by taking 1
full advantage of the opportunities ;

The chief factors in the further <
development of poultry raising 1
ire: increasing the size of farm (
flocks, developing commercial
>oultry farms, developing local
narkets and better means of reacti
ng national markets, improving
:he quality of eggs and fowls sold,
■educing poultry mortality, and
ixercising more care in breeding,
:eeding, and general management.
The size of most farm flocks
hould be increased, Dearstyne said,
roo many farmers have only small
docks to supply eggs and birds
inly for consumption on the farm,
rhe money-making possibilities of
loultry are all too often overlook
id, since it is hard to realize any
ippreciable profit from small, neg
Careful grading and marketing
if high grade eggs and birds will
mild up the demand for North
Poultry mortality, however, is |
probably the most acute problem
facing the industry, Dearstyne said.
Special work is being done in this
field. But more cooperation from
small growers is needed. An in
:rease in livalibility will reduce
overhead costs and leave more net
profit for the poultrymen.
For Wheat Crop
Completing the check up last
week of the Rowan wheat con
tracts and finding a very minimum
of errors in over planting, in fact,
the county as a whole on contract
will be fully 10 percent under the
maximum acreage allowed. Thresh
ing is on in full swing with yields
of grain rather disappointing for
the farmers. The season was un
favorable for the wheat crop, said
County Agent, W. G. Yeager.

ing. We flush,
