The Brine Cure If .sugar is added this cure is known as the "Sugar Cure," or "Sweet Pickle." For each 100 lbs. meat use: 12 lbs. salt 1 Ike 2 ozs. Saltpeter 6 gals, water. Thoroughly mix the salt, pulver ized .saltpeter, and sugar (brown preferred) and rub some of this mixture : into the hams, shoulders and bacon. Pack tall meat, hams, shoulders and bacon in the .same vessel, such as af stone jar or wood . en barrel. Place the skin side down except on the top layer ; then put skin side up. Weight this down so that none of the pieces will float ' when the brine is poured over the meat. Boil six gallons of water thor oughly and while it is still warm . add the rest of the salt and sugr mixture, left from rubbing the pieces of meat. Be sure that all of the meat is covered with this brine solution. Set aside in a cool, well ventilated place to cure tabout three days per pound for each piece ot ' ham and shoulder. Two days per pound is sufficient for the bacon. In-order to insure a uniform cure, the meat should be repacked on jthe 10th day and remove the bacon on , the 21st day, repacking the htams , and shoulders.

All beef left after a killing and usual distribution may be corned and put aside for future use. Cut the meat intoJjive or six pound chunks andjiw with .salt. Then pack into "a clean vessel of hardwood or stone ware and cover with a pickle made with one and one-half pounds of salt, one ounce of saltpeter, one-fourth pound of sugar or syrup, and one gallon of pure water. Leave the meat in cure for about two weeks and then smoke to improve flavor. The rounds are usually allowed to hang for some time to dry out. Q. What fertilizer do you rec ommend for tobacco plant bed? A. The commercial 4-8-3 mixture is one most generally jused and gives best results. Apply 200 pounds of this mixture to each 100 square yards of bed space. If a lower grade fertilizer is used, it should be supplemented with from 50 to 100 pounds of cottonseed meal, provided the meal is thor oughly mixed with the soil. B road cast the fertilizer on the bed and thoroughly mix it with the upper three , or four inches of the soil. Do not use tobacco trash or ma nure containing tobacco leaves, stalks or rootson the beds.. Q. Should I feed roughage td my dairy cows before ' or while the cow zs being milked ? A. Neither. fed before or dur ing milking the air will be filled with dust which will get into the milk and impair the quality. Rough age and highly flavored feeds, such as turnips or rye, should always be fed after milking. The highly flav ored feeds will impart an objec tionable flavor to the milk , if fed during or a short time before milk ing. Clean air, clean utensils, .and above all. a clean cow is necessary for the production of clean, good quality milk or cream. Liberal Winter Feeding Essential For Turkeys Breeding turkeys lose weight during , the laying season. They .can stand thisv loss if they are fed lib erally through the winter, says C. F. Parrish, poultry specialist of the State college extension service. Now is the time to .start feeding tMfk'eJ'- hens mash, Parrish says. Some flocks in the state have al ready started laying. Too, most poultrymen select young hens and young toms from tht spring flock to hold over as breeders. Only by liberal feeding do they reach full growth by the time they start laying, the special ist, added. . ' . Breeding birds will keep in good condition with green feed such as clover, Italian rye -grass or alfalfa, plenty of sunshine, a good grow ing mash, scratch grain, plenty of water and gravel or .some other insoluble grit. A recommended mash is: Bran, 12 parts; middlings, 12 parts; ground oats, 12 parts; ground yel low' corn, 33 parts ; alfalfa leaf meal, 6 parts; meat scraps, 13 parts ; dried milk, 10 parts; and salt, 1 part. ' . .. This ration, together with scratch grain, water, and grit, should be continued until at least one month before the hens are .expected to start laying, after which time a lay ing ration should be provided. When winter weather is severe and birds must be confined, the growing mash should contain 2 per cent cod liver oil. To preserve the Vitamin A of the cod liver oil, it .should not be mixed with the mash for more than two weeTcs in advance one week -is better. mm f'iwM mm mm- KW.tir&s&'d Jf - " r 2f il Harry Armstrong, left, member of the New Jersey board of flsh and Deputy Game Warden M.

Dr. Frank T. de Vyver,, supervisor of Merit Examinations for the North Caro lina Unemployment Compensation Commission, has announced that ar rangements for giving merit exami nations have been completed. Al applications will be mailed in a week or so. The examinations will be held in the following centers : Asheville, Charlotte, Durham, Elizabeth City, Fayetteville,. Greensboro,- Hickory, New Bern,' Raleigh. Wilmington, Winston-Salem and Wilson. ' All the clerical examinations will be given the afternoon of January 21. Dr. de Vyver explained that the examinations are so arranged that an applicant for several clerical ex aminations can take all the ex aminations in one day. The .admin istrative examinations will be given the following Saturday. Again, Dr. de Vyver stated, it is possible for one individual to take several ex aminations on the same day since an applicant for several positions is required to answer only an addi tional set of questions, on another examination booklet. Dr. de Vyver urgently requests that applicants refrain from per sonal correspondence unless such correspondence is absolutely nec essary. There is a tremendous ad ministrative and clerical task in volved in giving the examinations, and every personal letter slows up the entire program.
