Farmers Using Marl.
. Dr. Stuckey reported that some
farmers are mining marl with drag
line equipment and spreading the
marl on their fields, saying they
could dig and haul the marl cheap-
erthen they could buy lime.
This practice, however, has its
limitations and may prove injurious
to the soil If carried too far. Agron
omists advise that it should only
be followed on technical advice af
ter soil samples have been analy
zed. A calcltic type limestone or marl
like that found in Duplin and Pen
der, containing little or no magne
sium is said to be desirable for
Portland cement, Dr. Stuckey ex
plained, is made by burning into
a clinker three parts of calcium
carbonate with one part of clay or
shale. This is then ground to proper
fineness. He reported that some
clay, apparently with suitable
characteristics, has been found in
the vicinity; but exact characteris
tics and extent were yet to be de
termined. Scoffs Store KDC

common type of letters we receive
are worried queries from pet own
ers' whose dogs refuse to eat.
A couple of years ago, 1 was In
terested in a year old dog that had
become so unmanageable the own
era had to dispose of him. They
told me frankly all his faults he
attacked the mall man, chased cars,
barked when left alone, . scared
away visitors. But until they told
me that he would eat only If his
mistress held the dish, I wasn't
sure it was all just bad training.
When they told me that, I bought
the dog, took him home, gave him
a short course In obedience train
ing and developed one of the finest
dogs I've ever owned. To this day,
be has never again attacked the
mall man, chased a car. barked

visitor. And I certainly never fed
him by hand nor has he ever re
fused to eat
An almost exact parallel Is con
tained in a letter from Rialto, Call

Poodle writes: t
'-Cheko is a year old, though how

eat it He Is so thin, It is pitiful.
I have taken him to a veterinary
who said to pay no attention to
him. I did that, and he got weak
from lack of food. He will eat
candy, or anything he likes, and
he wjll eat it I feed him with a
spoon or by hand."
Of course, It Is possible that the
"best food" that the lady Is offer
ing the dog Isn't the best food at
all. It Is possible she is feeding
an unbalanced diet (an all meat
diet, for Instance) and the poor dog
has to go to garbage cans to get
the other foods he needs. However,
if he will eat candy and eat when
hand fed, there Is probably nothing
wrong with the dog that training
his mistress wouldn't cure.
In my answer to the lady I said:
"If Cheko were my dqs, I would
keep him in the house or on leash
for a few days so be couldn't raid
the garbage cans. Every morning
and evening, I would put down
about a half can of a good grade

pay no further attention to him or
the food. Since these foods are cer

culture as being balanced rations,
