„ Result «f Analysis of 10 Fertilizers
The State agricultural bulletin on
the analysis of fertilizers for th."
spring- season, just issued, gives the
analysis of ten samples of guano
drawn by inspectors at Williatnston.
'i he analyses include fertilizers manu
factured by five manufacturers, the

Co., and the Pamlico Chemical Co.
The drop in the price of fertilizer.-
sr. the spring led farmers generally t -
my that the quality was cut, as well
as the price. The figures by the j
chemists, however, do not seem tc.
justify the statement. Of the I>
samples, only 1 showed a deficiency j
in phosphoric acid, while the othei j
cine were above the amount claimed, j

The trend toward mineral nitrogen,

And Still They Kick
When the State equalization board 1
announced its distribution of the t
three and a quarter million school :
lurids, a good number of counties 
kicked, but when the board held a
stcond meeting and passed out a few
more morsels, nearly all the counties 1
quieted off, and Jjtdooked as if we
were going to hi ve" peace for a while. 1
But not so. One of our neighboring I
j counties, Halifax, is still kicking.
We do not know anything about j
i whether Halifax has a good reason |
for a kick, but we do know the main
reason for most kicks comps not be ,
cause they get less than their share,
turns" therein contained not having
been complied with and at the re
quest of the parties interested, the j
unUersigned trustee will, on the 9th j
I day of August, 1927, in front of the

liamston, N. C., offer for sale at pub
