COPPER FOR LETTUCE
Spraying lettuce beds with red
copper oxide has given excellent
control of the "damping off" dis
ease on New Hanover truck farms,
i Control . also has been secured
through the use of .s.emisan but lit

solution. A. J. Janicki reports that
his plants would have been almost
totally destroyed but for the spray

Yes, just a straggling village
Upon a high plateau.
The summer season's ended,
We're blanketed with ice, and
But such a cozy place it is
A family all at home.
Our friend's return to noisy cities
Have left us not alone.
The mountains yes, they yet are
. Their massive bocks Unbending,
Though clothed in winter garb so
To us new courage lending
So each person shoulders his cares,
Finds what work he can to do,
With those less fortunate he shares,
Till the winter time is through.
Still remote and yet accessible
This mountain village stands
With ribbons broad of concrete
Calling out to lower lands.
On the ice-covered, slippery high
ways Up our winding ways they flee,
To test the ice with shining skates,
And when there's snow, to ski.
One little lad when somebody asked
How we lived when summer folk
Themselves, to the lands that are
Thought for a minute, then replied,
"On tourists in the summertime,
Haters in the winter."
A Year Around Resident.
THE PREACHER'S VACATION
The old man went to meeting,
For the day was bright and fair,
Though his limbs were very totter
ing And 'twas hard to travel there.
He hungered for the Gospel
As he trudged the weary way,
On the road so rough and dusty,
'Neath the summer's burning ray.
Bye and bye he reached the build
ing. To his soul a holy place.
Then he paused and wiped the
sweatdrops . ,
From his thin and wrinkled face.
Then he looked around bewildered,
For the old bell did not toll,
And the doors were shut and bolted
And he did not see a soul.
So he leaned upon his crutches,
And. he said, "What does it
And he looked this way and that
Till it seemed just like a dream.
He had walked the dusty highway,
And he breathed a heavy sigh,
Just to go once more to meetin'
Ere the summons came to die.
But he saw a little notice
Tacked upon the building's door;
So he limped along to read it
Anrl ho raH it o'er and o'er.
rThen he wiped his 'misty glasses
And he read it o er again,
Till his limbs -began to tremble
And his eyes, began to pain.
As the old man read the notice
How it made his spirit burn :
"Pastor absent on vacation,
Church closed till his return."
Then he staggered slowly backward
And he sat him down to think.
For his soul was stirred within him
Till he thought his heart would
So he mused along and wondered,
To himself soliloquised:
"I've lived till almost eighty,
And was never so surprised,
As I read that oddest notice
Sticking on the meetin' door.
'Pastor absent on vacation
Never heard the like before.
"Why when I joined the meetin'
Many, many years ago,
Preachers traveled circuit
In the heat and through the
If they got their clothes and vic
('T was but little cash they got)
They said nothin' 'bout vacation
But were happy in their lot
"Would the farmer leave his cattle.
Or the shepherd leave his sheep,
Who would give them care and
Or provide them food to eat?
So it strikes me very sing'lar .
When a man of holy hands
Thinks he needs to have vacation
And forsakes his tender lambs.
"Did St. Paul get such a notion,
Did a Wesley or a Knox?
Did they in the heat of summer
Turn away from needy flocks?
Did they shut their meetin' houses
lu8t to co and lounge about?
Why they knew that if they did it
Satan sure would raise a shout.
"Do the taverns close their places
Just to take a little rest?
T would be the height of nonsense,
For their trade would be distress
ed. Did 'you ever know it happen
Or hear anybody tell
Of Satan on vacation
Shuttin' up the doors of hell?.
"And shall preachers of the Gospel
Pack their trunks and go away,
Leave the saints and sinners
. Get along' as best they may.
Are the souls of saints and sinners
Valued less than selling beer?
Or do preachers tire quicker
Than the rest of mortals here?
"Why it is 1 cannot answer
But my feelings they are stirred;
Here I've dragged my, tottering
For to hear the gospel word,
But the preacher is a traveling
And the meetin' house is closed ;
I confess it's very trying,
Hard, indeed, to keep composed.
"Tell me, when I tread the valley,
And go up the shinin' height,
Will I hear no angels singin',
Will I see no gleamin light?
Will the golden harps be silent,
Will I meet no welcome there?
Why the thought is most distressing
Would be more than I could bear.
"Tell me, when I reach the city
Over on the other shore,
Will I find a little notice
Tacked upon the golden door,
Telling me, 'mid dreadful silence,
Writ in words that cut and burn,
'Jesus, absent on vacation,
Heaven's closed till His return?'"
1,385 Home Water
Nearly 2,000 farm homes in North
Carolina have water systems today
whereas they were in the "bucket
and outdoor pump" brigade a, year
ago. To be exact, 1,885 home water
systems were installed in 78 coun
ties during 1938, reports Miss Ruth
Current, state home agent of the
These 1,885 systems ranged from
the simplest, a pitcher pump bring
ing water to the back porch or
kitchen and costing only $15, to the
more elaborate systems piping hot
and cold water to the home, yard
barn and orchard at a cost of sev
eral hundred dollars.
Miss Current says the Pamlico
extension agents, Sephie Lee
Clark and A T. Jackson, used this
phase of agricultural engineering as
a joint program for men and wo
men in 1938, holding one leaders
school at which a simple water sys
tem was demonstrated. As a result
14 water systems were installed in
that one county and one bathroom
Miss Clark, the Pamlico home
agent, tells. of the following exper
ience in connection with the farm
and home tour conducted last fall:
"One of the water systems was in
stalled as a demonstration and was
completed only a few days before
the tour. In checking up on the
demonstration, I , visited the ' home
the day before the tour. The hus
band met me at the door, his face
beaming. 'Miss Clark, it works but
what is . worrying me is that my
wife may use all the water and
there won't be none when the folks
get here tomorrow.' I assured him
the water would last, and several
months later he told me it was still
holding out and had saved mem
bers of his family thousands of
In Cleveland county the windmill
water supply for the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Andrew Carpenter was
one of the interesting sights dn
that county's farm and home tour.
Rachel Everett, home agent in
Johnston county, says 24 water
pumps and 30 water systems were
installed in that county in 1938 de
spite a bad financial year.

"The Sword in the Stone," by T.
H. White. New York: G. P. Put
A reading world weary of jour
nalist's autobiographies, stories, of
self-sacrificing doctor's careers, how
ever valuable to humanity they may
have been, and commentaries on
the ever-recurring crises in Europe
and the Far East, should welcome
with open arms (or eyes,) "Sword
in the Stone." It is "different,"
The author, T. H. White, leads
the reader through numerous fan
tastic adventures of delight relating
to the boyhood and youth of King
Arthur and his "eddication" by
Merlin, self-confessed "magician of
known probity and international
reputation, with first-class ; honors
from every European university."
Arthur "was called the Wart be
cause it rhymed with Art which
was short for his real name."
Through' Merlin's magic spells
(when he doesn't get them mud
dled) the Wart goes into numer
ous, awe-inspiring enchantments, as
he becomes a perch in the castle
moat, a merlin felcon, a badger, a
snake, or an owl, he learns amaz
ing facts of natural history first
hand as well as valuable lessons in
psychology and philosophy.
Quite aside from the extraordin
ary encounters made passible by
Merlin's magic, the Wart comes in
contact with an unusual collection
of personalities in the course of his
normal, everyday life. His guardian,
Sir Ector, is a landholder in the
best tradition. Kay son and heir of
Sir Ector, is a beloved companion.
He meets King Pellinore, who
everlastingly dashes about with his
horn in searching of the Questing
Beast. He finds Robin Wood (be
preferred "Wood" to "Hood") in
the forest and spends a night of
high adventure with the stealthy
outlaws. He learns woodcraft from
Maid Marian. He watches Sir
Grummore Grummersum fiercely
joust with Pellinore.
'The Sword in the Stone" con
tains a wealth of lore about the
fabulous England of King Arthur'
time. It presents authentic pictures
of everyday life of that period but
they are high-lighted with delight
fully mad touches that are as mod-:
ern as tomorrow's newspaper. It
is a book that can be read more
than one time with, probably, more
enjoyment arid profit to the reader
in-the second reading than in ' the

Timely Farm Questions
Q. How much lespedeza seed is
required for planting one acre ?
A When broadcast, at least one
bushel (25 pounds) should be sown
to the acre and the seed covered
