"Take one large grassy field, one
half dozen children, two or three
small dogs, a pinch of brook and
some pebbles. Mix the childr?Ai and
dogs well together and put them in
the field stirring instantly. Pour
the brook over the pebbles ; sprink'e
the field with flowers; spread over all
a deep, blue sky and bake in the sun.
When brown, remove and set to cool

conductcd by the Home Demonstra
tion workers of the State College and
State Department of Agriculture will
gather at Pcace Institute in. Raleigh
during the week of June 4th for the
annual short course and school given
these girls for excellence in their
work during the past year. Mrs. Jane
S. McKimmon, Chief of the home
lo n.stratiori division, says that the
great event in the life of the littie
club girl is the chance to attend this
tate short course. The school will be
held at Peacc Institute and only
200 girls can attend this year. By
next year,' however, Mrs. -McKimmon
plans to secure accomodations which
will enable her division to care for
every girl that should attend. She
looks for an enrollment of about
00 next season.
According to Mi's. McKimmon the j
plan of work outlined for the girls J
.'or this year, "includes instruction j
in clothing and canning which theycr
cxpcctcd to carry home to their'club
mates. They will be taught how to
cut and fit a simple dress from se
lecting the pattern to basting, and
fitting the dress on one of their class
mates. The gardening, packing and
steriliziyg of fruits and vegetables as j
well -as jelly making will be popular j

the Muckland Branch Station farm at
this place* were recently grouped for
making a carlot shipment and sold in
Kinston for$526.78 after all expenses
were deducted, reports Earl Hostler
in charge of swine investigations for
the State College and State Depart
ment of Agriculture. These hogs
weighed 7,240 pounds. Most of them
were small, lacked finish and sold
j only for seven and one-fourth ce'nts
toseven and one-half cents per pound
because of this, but the large and
better ones brought eight cents per
I Twenty of the hogs were owne<l
: by liic Statio,n farm and the other 29
j by four neighboring farmers. A buy
er had recently been through the
territory and had offered only seven
cents f. o*. b. Wenona. At this price
i he fanners would have received
only about $506. Owing to the late
ness of tho season, a full car was not
skipped iii this cooperative project
and this made tflo- rates more ex
pensive. r- , ?
This is only one of many ship
ments that have gone out of this ter
ritory in the last year' or two. The
Muckland Station in helping out in
the shipment is trying to act as a
comnnlaity center rendering service
to the fariners in the territory. It
lias been found that since the recent
experiments couducted on this farm
showing how hogs may be finished
and fattened at a profit, hog raising
lias received quite an impetus.
The farmers of this place are very
busy at this time getting ready to
plant their crops.

North State that we give it space :
N^'ih Ca'lina.
As soon as we get to No'th Ca'lina
The roads and towns get newah,

The people walk with a brisker step,
And even your motor has more i>ep.
The hookworm's banished, \ the
countiy has
A lot more energy, pep and jazz.
The livest Nortliener couldn't design
Livelier state than No'th Ca'lina.
The farais look fatter, the hamlets
air. 'i
Quite ignorant of tl.o sight of pnii.t;
They're building roads, and they're
not content.
With find and elj.'j but they use
x ii schools ?: ^ftd, tho
mills arc busy, i
And eacli inhabitant owns a Lizzie,
Or a big twin-six or something Jinah
A ; soon as you get to No'th Ca'lln.
This state's not dreaming of da.vS
gone by,
There's a modern glint in each mer
chant's eye;
And the village belles and villagci
Are as martly dressed as the crowd
which fl'ows
On Gotham's streets. Yon must give
'em credit ?
These folks arc fully awake, you
said it.
You meet tho "boostah"; you 1 >stj

As soon as you get in No'th Oalina.
