Have Vou a l^lly Pond In Your
Own Backyard?
"My Town" has gone plumb daffy
about backyard lily ponds, and my
own dear, darling, ecomonical wife
has got one in her head at last. She
has lily pond catalogues pouring in
by every mail, and our rear-sitting
room is littered from center to cir
cumference with models and designs
and descriptions.
There ain’t any room in any of
our backyards nowadays for tire
wash pot and tubs. The chicken in
dustry has suffered terribly because
of- this lily pond business. Why, half
the folks can't find a decent place
to dump the ashes from their fur
nace, but nobody ain't paying any
attention at all to their front yards—
that is—if they have a backyard,
but where there’s no backyard, lily
ponds are springing up in front
A fairly respectable lily pond can
| be built for 75 dollars and 35 cents.
Qne woman diddent want to ask
any one how to construct a lily
pond, so she sed out to design and
make her .own, so she and 2 other
darkies who knew a tiny bit about
cement and mortar, built one that
was 7 feet deep, the normal depth
of a nice one is about 2 feet) and
filled it with water and that night
her old man was trying to slip into
the house through the kitchen, and
danged if he diddent fall In that
thing and was almost drowned be
fore a policeman pulled him out.
My wife has figgered and figger
ed on her lily pool and has a list of
things she wants in it. I thought all
I'd have to buy was a few lily plants
and some other cheap water flora,
but what you reckon: you hafter
put something in them pools beside
flowers ansoforth, and my wife has
picked out from the catalogue the
following animal life, which must
be in there also:
5 Japanese Snails ........ $4.50
6 Ramshorn Snails_ 8.00
7 Salamanders ......_ 6.55
2 Weather Fish ..._ 5.30
8 Tadpoles . .. 3.25
6 Assorted Snails i ...... 6.00
6 Gold Fish __ 6.00
2 Clams .... 2 00
Well, I think lily pools are all
right, but it looks like it 1s going to
be cheaper for us to move off some
where close to a natural swamp—
rather than make one of our own.
Now, folks, besides all of them snails
and tadpoles. It costs about 25 dol
lars and 43 cents to get the grass
and rock plasts for the pond.
She wants me to go down to
the farm and haul all of the big
rocks up to our house and pile them
on the sides of the driveway and
path to the garden. I guess 111 have
to do like everybody else. Ruin my
backyard and bank account, and
then have to tear all of the junk
out and cart it away next year—
when they go out of style.

State Rejects
Bids For Gas
Accepts Bids For Six Counties. All
Statewide Bids And Most Local
Ones Held Too High.
News and Observer. Raleigh.
The State rejected all statewide
bids on its tender of contract for
10,000,000 gallons of gasoline, and
also rejected all local bids except
for six counties, the action being
taken yesterday by three members
of the Advisory Budget Commission
who sat with the Director of Pur
chase and Contract as a board of
award. Thirty-eight statewide and
local bids were received.
The counties for which contracts
were let did not Include Wilkes,
where the county has been buying
gasoline at a much lower figure
than that paid by the Highway
Commission and where the local re
tail price of all companies for all
1 customers is IS cents a gallon, much
1 lower than that prevailing in the
State as a whole
Under the local contracts made
yesterday, und any others which the
State will make, it will receive the
benefit of prices which have been
depressed by local price wars. New
bids on the gasoline were called for
yesterday to be opened at 9.30 a. m.
July 10.
The lowest state-wide offer sub
mitted yesterday was for a sis-cent
discount on tank car lots from the
retail price at the point at time of
delivery, five cents on tank wagon
lots at time at point of delivery, und
three cents on retail service station
delivery. This bid was offered by
both the Shell Eastern Petroleum
company and the Central Oil com
pany. and while the Standard Oil
company offered a slightly better
discount, of 6.1' cents, 6,1 anti 3.1
cents respectively on the three class
es of service, Its bid was not in ac
cordance with specifications for the
proposal of bids and could not be
considered. Limitations imposed b>
the Standard would have protected
it from local price wars which are
also said to be gotnt on at present
in Louisburg, and Gastonia.
