Wb WEEKLY COTTON REVIEW
glpCew York. Nov. 20. —The cotton j
ejuarket has been comparatively quiet j

offerings have shown a tendency to'
increase around or above the 20-cent !
brtf'.fnr contracts while j
there has been more buying on de
clines from that figure. As a re- 1
Mnlt fluctuations have been irregular,
but within a comparatively narrow
grange with the trade evidently wait

the goods ami spot markets. Ad-
Vices of receipts in raw cotton cir

impression that while current bu*i
jWss in goods was held in check by!
Uncertainty regarding future values, a
large business was pending and would
probably be placed as soon as the crop
question or the <*otton markets be
came more settled. Reports from
the spot markets have indicated no
particular pressure of offerings and
toward the end of the week it was
that the increased discounts ■
on low grades were attracting a bet-!
ter demand for such cotton. There 1
pjras also a feeling here that with bet-
Iwpr weather late cotton might possibly 1

market seethed to expect that tomor

OUT new Motor Fuel - NO-NOX is the product
gsL p2«jk of many months of exhaustive scientific and

chemists, infinite care being given to all de

GULF REFINING COMPANY
Many of the appliances that adorn
ed the kitchen walls of our forefathers,
and were essentials of that day, are
to be found today chiefly in museuiaa.
One in my mother's kitchen that waa
of particular interest to me waa i
candle meld, for in my mind it marked
my mother's superiority aa a house
keeper because it was made to mold
twelve candles at a time, while meet
of those in the neighborhood could
only make four or six.
As long as the beef for our larder
• was butchered and cured on the farm,
, the molds were necessary to utilize
1 the tallow. However, as slaughter
• Uig and curing of meats became cotn
-1 mereialized. the candle molds in moth
-1 ef’a kitchen gave way to tba great
I mechanical appliances in commercial!
- centers for manufacturing candles on
I n large scale. Candles later were
: replaced by keroacne lamps, and they
I in turn by electric lights.
THE CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNE
The advent of commercial canning
of practically every food commodity
has likewise revolutionized modern
kitchen appliances, until today, in
stead of the housewife laboriously pit
ting tiie cherries one at a ritne or
grinding them through a small hand
run cherry pitter, cherries are being
pitted for her in the commercial can
neries on machines with a capacity
of several tons a day. The evolu
tion of canning machinery has also
changed the hand shelling of peas >to
change care should be taken to see that the mixture is
not too rich as NO-NOX works best with a thin mixture,
thus insuring economy. With NO-NOX, perfect combustion
takes place at just the right position of the piston head
which entirely does away with carbon knocks or motor
detonation —promoting greater efficiency of the engine,
smoother operation of the car on the road, in traffic, and
especially on heavy grades.
This wonderfully efficient gas is guaranteed to be Non•
Noxious, Non-Poisonous and no more harmful to man or
motor than ordinary gasoline.
NO-NOX is priced only three cents per gallon higher than
That Good Gulf Gasoline.
Drive to the nearest Gulf Service Station and try it out. It
is readily distinguished by its color.

Ho tne modern day kitchen has its
mechanical appliances, not hong on
the kitchen walls like tiros* of tba
forefathers, but installed in the grant

foods. The luscious fruit* are no
longer prepared by band but are
peeled, cored and sliced mechanically;
vegetables are washed, graded, blanch
ed and placed in the cans by great
mechanical devices capable of handl
ing the products of entire fields in a
day. Home large canneries are in

servings in ten boors.
Tbs modern kitchen has it* many
mechanical appliances, but they are
only means of farther reducing the
amount of time and energy the house
wife must give to the preparation of
the daily meals. The efficiency of
the modern housewife is not measured
by the hours She spends in the him
en, but by the results she gets.

Carter Finds li Impossible to Get *
body es Young Pharoah Out of Gold
Cairo, Nov: 20.—The condition or
the mummy of Tut-.Vnkb-Araen has
been found to bd such that it will lie

occahied seven days.
The experts announced that the
mummy i< firmly glued to the bottom
of its gold coffin with a dried pitch
like material. The mask, reaching
to the upper part of the thorax, is
also fixed to the coffin, making the re
moval of the mummy impossible. It,
also will be futile to attempt to make
x-ray pictures on account of the num

The king evidently was of slight
build, and the belief of the experts'
that the statues and effigies already

The report says that the objects
found with the body may be classified
in three categories amuletic, or per

personal belongings. Those objeets
have made it possible to reconstitute
the whole royal regalia of the 18th
dynasty. The refined taste displayed
in the jewelry equals anything prev

The most important objects discov
ered with the body are:
On the head, a royal diadem with
insignia of vulture and serpent.

Durham, N. C., Nov. 20.— OP) —
Marriage is uo hindrance to the se
suring of an education, ,nor of at- *
talking high scholastic records, if
the case of Mrs- Evelyn Hall Turner,
senior at Duke University, can be
taken as an example.
Mrs. Turner was recently initiated
into the Phi Beta Kappa nntionnl
scholarship fraternity, and headed
the list of 10 initiates who made the
highest grades at Duke University
‘luring the past three years.
Mrs. Turner is the wife of Dent
Turner, young Statesville attorney.
She became Mr. Turner’s bride when
a sophomore, both she and her hus
band returning to college the .next
yedr. Mr. Turner graduated from
the Duke law school last year, and is
now practing law with his father,
W- D. Turner, former Lieutenant-
Governor of North Carolina.
Other seniors initiated into the
bational scholarship fraternity are:
Miss Alice Judd, Varina; \V. Free
