It was suggested to the Woman s
iuu mat in oraer to make the Way-
neuvme Dahlia Show this fall the
most successful we have ever had for
mem to putmsn their prize list this
spring. In another part of the paper
is such a list, and special care ha
been taken to so compose this list
that it will attract a great many small
growers of dahlias I alreH I,
the promise of twenty-five exhibitors
for tne show this fall, who have never
exhibited in this show Wr.
this is a good numb, r to start with.
Haywood county is so well fitte',1
summer to raise finu dahlias .kt
ambition is to see dahlias grown in
practically every yard in the county.
Prices are now so verv cheap even
in the fine varieites that there is no
need for anyone to stand back on the
price. For instance Jersey Beauty,
which is one of the finest pinks, and
which sold a few years ago for SI 5.00
each, is now sold at as low as 'Jo' cents
each, and a number of other tine va
rieties are being sold by reputable
ueaieis at i.i cents to $1.00 each, A
they multiply so freely, in a year or
two there should be a great wealth of
dahlias blooming all over the county.
I have been asked to give some
suggestions as to the preparation of
the soil and the planting of dahlias
Dahlias will grow most anywhere in
tne county, but they are better if giv
en special attention. In order to grow
fine dahlias that will withstand any
drought that may come alon.r, it is
helpful to dig the holes wh 're you are
to plant, eighteen inches deep and
about two feet wide; nut a shovel full
of barnyard manure in th bottom
of this hole, fill in with Rood top soil
and then plant the tuber about four
to six inches deep. After it comes up
allow only one main stalk to grow and
keep the ground well cultivated, never
allowing the soil to become baked
around the plant, l'lant the bulbs
from three to four feet apart to give
plenty of room for la rw bushes to
grow. I would suggest no ferterlizer
except the manure mentioned where
the roots will get it after thev have!
grown down to it, but after thev com
mence blooming, an appiicaioi l
commercial lertili.er about 1 hand
ful to each plant every two weeks
will help very much in getting largi r
blooms and keeping up tlv vitality of
the plant until frost.
no sure to staiie tne si.iik and .-tcip

1 would- suggest that you -i-Avt-i
good varieities that have proven suc
cessful for others, as it takes no more
time and work to raise -'line dahlias
than cheap ones.

CHICAGO has jumped Into a long
lead over other cities in the race
for winning convention assign
ments, ami particularly the two .meat
assemblages of Democrats and Repub
licans in June puts Chicago well in the
lead and gives the "Windy City" an
opportunity to stage these colorful
affairs as a curtain raiser to the "Cen
tury of Progress" which will bo a head
line attra-ciion in 3!IH3. Already the
convention pot is boiling -merrily as
committees of prominent business men
are organizing to receive thousands of
Tlsitors in Chicago during June.
One of the. leaders who has helped
to bring jthc blue ribbon convention
assignments to Chicago is Melvin A.
Traylor, president of the First .National
Bu n1 a business man with a flair
for tarkliDg bU Jobs Mr. Trarlor, a
bMt of !.,. ,..vv. ha achieved na
tional and International fame In
finance and business by his distin
guished service In Chicago, Texas and
throughout the Middle West. Ho was
one of the delegation headed by K. N.
Hurley and Mayor Cennak of Chicago
who went to Washington and clinched
their bid for the National Democratic
Convention with a fund of $:'00,000.
Chicago has exceptional facilities
for entertaining both Republican and
Democratic conventions within u sin
glo month. Already the engineers aro
nt work with blue prints to arrange tho
interior of the huge .Chicago Stadium
whero both conventions will bo held.
The assembling of both conventions
promises to ho a groat spectacle, for

children, however, can be very accu
rately determined. The figures pre
sented cover a fiscal year period, but
within this time schools are operated
for varying lengths of term, some six
months," some seven ; months, some
eight months and some nine months.
The question we would like to raise
is: Can our income and expenditure

vide for a more equal opportunity
for the children of the state to the
end that the "outgo" of children will
compare more favorably with the an
nual "income" We believe this can
be done without affecting very ma
terially the financial "income" and
"outgo." , .-' t
