MUTTER AND MUMBLE
We've heard several hunters remark that there are more
game wardens in the fields and woods than there is game this
year ... And all those guys are there for is to see that every
hunter is wearing a little badge that has to be bought to make
their shooting legal .. .We don't think that some •of them
should have to buy hunting license on account of they can't
hit anything anyway, unless maybe a cow or a tame turkey.
There was hardly a dry ey
morning of the capture of the

count of there might be a mixup
in the pill department. . .
As far as we're concerned, old
man Winter has already convinc
ed us that he knows how to turn
on the cold weather ... At this
writing last Saturday morning
was conceded the coldest morning
thus far . . . Big Elkin creek was
frozen over as far as you could see
from the bridge . . . And the Yad
kin was carrying plenty of skim
ice down stream . . .
As soon as the boss recovers
from his appendicitis operation
we're going to turn this column
over to him for about four or five
weeks so he can tell you about it.
Then we're going to run like ev

sure fixed up swellegant now that
the new addition has been put to
use . . . They have a sun porch, a
telephone switchboard, and an of-

They had a "No Visitors" sign
on the boss' room door for quite
a while. Too long, he thought, so
he asked Miss Love, a nurse, why
it wasn't taken down. "Well," she
said, "we don't think you are quite
right in the head yet." . . . We
didn't know it until now, but the

THIS AND THAT
The town could give everyone a
Christmas present by removing
those nuisances in the form of big
oval traffic guides at downtown
Or else regulate traffic at cor
ners so that a motorist wouldn't
have to hit them or straddle them.
Our Uncle Culpepper Is one of
these guys who lives in the pres
ent, regrets the past and dreads
You wont be able to buy fire
works in Yadkin county this year,
unless they are bootlegged. Both
the sale and shooting of fireworks
has been outlawed by the powers
that be, we were told.
The law may prevent the open
sale of crackers, but well bet you
a dime that no law ever passed
could prevent youngsters from
shooting them at Christmas.
Which reminds us of the time
not so awfully long ago that we
in violation of the law, tossed a
five-inch cracker out the drug
store door down in Hillsboro, at
the identical moment the mayor
started in. The firecracker skeet
ed between his legs and went off
right behind him. He didn't see
who did it, thank goodness, as we
would have probably have had a
conference with both the mayor's
court and later with our pappy.
And that would have been bad.
Question: How many pigs can
be turned into a lot where steers
are being fattened?
Answer: This depends upon the
form in which the concentrate is
fed and the age of the steers.
For two-year old animals from
one to three pigs should follow
each steer when snapped corn is
fed; one to two pigs when hus
ked ear corn is fed; one pig per
steer when shelled corn is used,
and one pig to each two or three
steers when corn is crushed or
ground. With steers that are less
than two years old, the number
of pigs would be reduced. In ad
dition to the feed picked up in
the lot, the pigs should be sriven
an animal protein supplement,
Question: What is the best
time to sow seeds in coldframes
or hotbeds for the early spring
Answer: The best time to sow
seeds will depend upon the time
the plants are wanted In the field
and also upon the section. Hardy
crops such as cabbage and let
tuce are usually transplanted to
the field as early as January 15
in the eastern part of the state.
In the mountain sections, these
hardy crops are started in the
hotbeds or coldframes about Jan
uary Ist to 18th. For a very early
crops such tender vegetables (tt
tomatoes and peppers should be
started from 8 to 10 weeks before
is is safe to set them,' in the field
and for the main summer crops
the seeds should be sown from
three to four weeks before danger
of the frost is over.
Question: Should oyster shell be
before laying hens at all times?
Answer This mineral may be
subtituted with ground corn lime
stone but one or the other should
be accessible to the laying flock
all the time. The mineral content
of the hen's body is nearly four
percent and the mineral content
of an egg is eleven percent so it
is necessary that the bird have
the growth and repair of the body.
Other necessary minerals are
bone meal and salt. These ele
ments supply calcium, phosphor
ous, sodium and chlorine and the
oyster shell or ground limestone.
