THE ZEBULON RECORD, ZEBULON, NORTH CA ROLINA, FRIDAY, APRIL 15,1938
THE CONTENTED FARMER
This tribute to the live-at-home
farmer in Old England was writ
ten by Alexander Pope more than
a century ago:
Happy the man whose wish and
A few paternal acres bound,
Content to breathe his native air
On his own ground.
Whose herds with milk, whose
fields with bread,
Whose flocks supply him with at
Whose trees in summer yield him
In winter, fire.
Blest, who can unconcern’dly find
Hours, days , and years slide soft
In health of body, peace of mind,
Quiet by day.
Sound sleep by night, study and
Together mixed; sweet recreation,
And innocence, which most does
Friends of Wade David will be
glad to know that he has returned
to his home after several days
spent in Rex Hospital, the result of
an automobile accident.
Staffin Pearce, a Y. T. H. F.
Chapter member won first place in
baritone at the Glee Club contest
held in Raleigh. We are proud
that Wakelon won first place in six
entries, and extend congratulations
to Miss King and the winners.
Evening class members were
privileged to have with them last
week, Mr. Taylor, of the U. S.
Dept, of Agriculture. He gave in
struction in the government’s sys
tem of grading tobacco.
When the tobacco plants are all
set, the tobacco bed is an ideal
place to start the fall crop of to
matoes, cabbage, and other plants
that are to be transplanted for
• fall use.
Examine the tobacco bed at
regular intervals and remove all
plants that are suspected of hav
ing leaf mold or mosaic disease.

The Wakelon boys had planned
participation in the annual field
day for YTHF boys but weather
was so bad that it was impossible
to hold the contests. A visit was
made to the dairy barn, however,
and some time was spent in placing
dairy cows. The annual stock judg
ing contest will be held April 23,
and we hope to earn some honors
in this event.
Two weeks ago we suggested a
treatment of rotenone for tobac
co beds infested with flea beetles.
In the event rotenone is not avail
able, growers may substitute with
a mixture of one part Paris green
to five parts lead arsenate. Dust
ing is better than spraying, and
half pound of either rotenone or
Paris green and lead arsenate
dust is sufficient for 100 square
yards of plant bed.
TO MOVE TREES
Perhaps you have seen a tree in
the woods that you would like very
much to have in your home
grounds next year. Now is the
time to get it in condition to move
ne*t fall or winter. Dig a circu
lar trench around the tree about
one yard in diameter, deep enough
to cut all lateral roots. If the tree
has a tap root, dig down deep
enough to sever this root, a foot
or more below the surface of the
ground. Fill the trench you have
dug with loamy top soil, pack it
down firmly, and water if the
ground is dry. There are two
purposes in pruning at this time—
to give proper shape to the trees,
and to reduce the branches in
about the same proportion as the
roots have been reduced. No fur
ther attention is dequired. In
February or early March, careful
ly take up the tree, preserving all
the mass of feeding roots that
have been grown to take the place

of those that have been cut away.
Keep the roots damp until planted.
A good method of controlling
cutworms is to use poison bait
made by mixing two level table
spoons of Paris green or sodium
fluoride with five pounds of dry
bran, to which is added five quarts
of water in which 1-2 pint of mo
lasses has been mixed. Apply this
mixture late in the afternoon by
scattering in small batches about
the plants where these pests are
working. Repeat in 2 or 3 days if
necessary. This mixture is deadly
poison, and children, chickens and
