Friday, May the fifteenth, the Fed
eration truck will make the County
buying all kinds of poultry. The
prices for this week are: hens, 20c
tb ; broilers, 38e lb ; roosters, 8c lb ;
eggs in cases 23c dozen. The truck
will reach Rosman about 10 o'clock
and pass through Brevard at noon,
then on down the line. The time of
reaching a place depends on the
amount of chickens to handle.
Mr. G. . P. Williams, our Statu
sheep specialist, writes me that wool
is bad low now, and he is quite sure
that it will go up considerably by
August. The Elkin Co., offers 45
cents per pound for May.
Protein Poison in Chickens
About time for trouble with
broiler size chickens if you are feed
ing them more than ten percent meat :
scraps, and perhaps some milk with
it. The dead ones usually show a
dark comb, and some people call the
trouble black comb. The best of
the bunch and especially those that
hang around the mash hopper, are
the ones that die.
In one flock last year, I advised
giving a dose of saltz. We learned
a lesson, as every sick chicken was
dead in an hour after taking tiu
saltz. It is in a large sense append
icitis, due to slow movement ot the
fine smooth feed passing through the
bowels, setting up an irritation.
The best thing we found last year
was to give not over a live percent
meat scrap mash and give more
grain. The trouble soon let up.
Five drops of carbolic acid to the
quart of drinking water should be

IS VERY SUCCESSFUL
The clean-up campaign of May G,
which was sponsored by the Better
ment. proved most successful in ev
ery respect. A committee of compe
tent judges from the Betterment
awarded the following prizes for the
largest rubbish piles: Main street.
Tommy Hampton; Broad street.
Dwight Moffit: Caldwell street. Joe
Duckworth; Jordan street. Fowler
Lyon.; Whitmire street, Paul Rick
man. A prize of SI. 00 was awarded
each one of thtse young boys for
having the largest rubbish piles on
their respective streets.
The streets of Brevard assumed an
7 altogether different aspect following
the completion of the clean-up cam
paign. Vacant lots, premises and
public buildings also showed the re
sults of clean-up week, all of which,
in their gratifying results, demon
strated the necessity for such a cam
paign. The- ladies in charge of this
campaign, as well as all others con
cerned, are well aware of the fact
that, in order for any clean-up cam
paign to be at all permanent in its
good effects, it must be eternally

TO LOCATE HERE
A motor party consisting of Dr.
and Mrs. Pearce and son, John, and
W. L. Tillinghast, of St. Petresburg,
Fla., reached Brevard last Tuesday,
and stopped at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. J. L. Saltz. These gentlemen
are prosperous business men of Flor
ida, and came through the moun
tains of Western North Carolina by
way of Murphy, looking for a beau
tiful location for summer homes, and
finally decided upon Brevard as the
most desirable location.
After reaching Brevard, Mrs. Saltz
accompanied them on a trip to Lake
Toxaway, Connesstee, Caesar's Head,
and various falls, camps and places
of interest. These gentlemen were
delighted with the charm and beauty
of this local section of the "Land of
the Sky.'* expressing the opinion
that this was the most beautiful
mountain scenery they had yet seen.
On their way to Brevard, the
party stopped at Murphy and had
decided to invest several thousand
dollars in a summer home near that
city. On arriving at Brevard, how
ever. and being convinced of the su
perior beauties and advantages of
this immediate section, they decided
to buy property here and locate
their summer homes in the neighbor
hood of Brevard rather than at
Both are greatly enthused over
their wonderful discovery, and are of

to give a cotton dusting demonstra

Mr. Littlejohn siates that the de

of young cotton on Mr. Kitchen's
farm about two and one-half mil'.*.*
from Scotland Neck, on the Hogback
road. The company will have two
airplanes and wiil actually lay a dust
cloud of calcium arsenate from the

and the boll weevils too few for the

control, but the idea is to prove that
airplane ducting is practical and ef
