A FEW SUGGESTIONS
i
i Occasionally, although it is only
| once in a blue moon, someone runs a
J classified advertisement in The
j Courier that doesn't produce satis
j factory results.
j When they complain we always j
{answer: "Why, our classified ads al-!
ways get results if they are proper
ly written."
Now it appears that we've got to
I give instructions on how to write ads,
I and so we submit, herewith, a few
jgood examples. Ads such as these
are bound, at any rate, to get atten
tion:
For Rent: Flat with eight rooms,
and two baths on the trolly tracks.
For Sale: Good Jersey cow that
produces six quarts of milk daily and
cook stove and a Ford.
Wanted: A boy to deliver fish that
can ride a bicycle.
Wanted: Salesman that can sell
eggs not over forty years old.
For Sale: An auto by man leaving
[town with new upholstering.
For Sale: A piano by a widow
with large legs slightly scratched.
j Health of the hens will be improv

itable when the birds have green

WILL PLANT WALNUTS
IN ROWAN COUNTY
i
Raleigh, N. C. Dec. 17.—Black
walnut timber and nuts will be plen- j
tiful in Rowan County for future -
generations of landowners if the plan
now being promoted by County,
Agent W. G. Yeager is carried to a;
successful fruition.
"Mr. Yeager, cooperating with the '
rural school supervisor, has begun!
one of the most important and :
unique projects with the school chil
dren of Rowan County that I have !
observed in a number of years," says
R. W. Graeber, extension forester at j
State College. "About 6,000 school
children are now engaged in planting j
black walnut seed about over their j
home farms. The children are plant- !
ing seed from the best trees with the j
idea of starting small groves on each ;
farm. In addition, they are preparing j
exhibits of seed which are entered at
each rural school. From these, the j
three best exhibits will be carried to j
a county-wide contest and the win- ,
ning exhibit there will be used to fur- j
nish seed for planting black walnuts j
on the 60 or more rural school i
grounds of the county." j
Mr. Gaeber says that the plantings i
are being carefully supervised and ,
will be conducted as a club project
under Mr. Yeager's direction. A ;
number of the schools have reported (
that 100 percent of their pupils have ;
begun their plantings and no move- >
ment started recently among the j
young people has proven so popular (
as this.
Mr. Yeager reports that the plant
ings on the school grounds will be
carefully tended until the trees are
beyond the nursery stage which
insures at least a few trees around
each building. Appropriate prizes
are being secured to award to those j
j children conducting the work most
i efficiently. Prizes are also offered
for the exhibit of nuts which the
1 young folks are bringing to their
| school houses.

. late interest in soil improvement pro
, grams recommemded and approved
