me a kingdom of priests, and a holy

Never tefore have' th fee lo
Hertford locked so pretty; :?Sey are
always beautiful in their . new
spring green. But this year, with the
dread hanging over us that many of
the old trees on Church Street which
we hare loved so long may have to
be cut down in order to widen the
street, they ieem to have taken on a
rarer loveliness and we have a ten
derer feeling than ever before for the
fine old trees to which we may have
to say farewell.
We are told that it is probable that
only a few of the trees will have to
be taken down, and it is believed that
most of those which are cut will be
cut from the East side of the street.
It is pointed out that on that side of
the street there are trees in most of
the yards of the homes, which will, in
a measure, take the places of those
cut from the street. There are no
trees in the shallow lots on the river
side. It would, therefore, seem pro
bable that most of the trees on the
West side may be saved.
No further steps are likely to be
taken to prevent the cutting of the
trees. The residents, appear to have
accepted the matter as inevitable, be
lieving that no trees will be cut
which are not necessary to be cut. It
seems to be a disposition of every one
to save every tree possible. :
Here's hoping that those who have
the matter in -charge will .have the
same regard for trees that is ex
pressed "in- Joyce Kilmer's famous
I think that I shall never seea poem
lovely as a tree;
A tree which looks to God all day,
and lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree whose hungry mouth is pres't
against the earth's sreet, flow
ing breast;
Upon whose bosom snov has lain,
who intimately liva xdth rain;
A tree which may in summer wear a
nest of robins in her hair.
Poems are made by fools, like me,
but only God can make a tree.
Rook Carnival At J

A book carnival will be put on by
the various schools throughout the
county as a program. Each school
will have representatives make im
personations of characters from well

While most Southern farmers are
familiar with the growing of soy
beans and the uses to which this crop
may be put, the following information
selected from Circular No. 49,
'Aaronomy Information" by P. H
Kime. North Carolina State College
of Agriculture, may prove helpful to
some readers.
The soybean is a comparatively
eaav' cron to srrow if riven a fair
chancel It will make good growth on
wide variety of soils and under
Varying seasonal . conditions. Jt is
somewhat resistant to. drouth and will
tolerate more moisture than corn.
However, it does best on well drained
soils of fair fertility. A well pre
pared seed bed is essential for best
results. Two or three cultivations
are sufficient.
Soybeans may be planted in the
Coastal Plain section from April 15th
to July 1st. Best yields of both hay
and seed are usually secured when
the beans are planted during the
month of May.
Soybeans grown for seed purposes
are usually planted in rows. They
are occasionally drilled solid, but this
method is seldom satisfactory unless
the land is relatively free from grass
and weeds.
Where one row harvesters are to be
used, the rows should be 3 to 81-2
feet apart. If the beans are to be
mowed or ' cut - with a binder and
threshed the rows may be 21-2 to
feet acart, not over 3 feet.
Where one Vow harvesters are to be
used, the rows should be 3 to 3 1-2
feet anart. If the beans are to be
mowed or cut with a binder and
threshed the rows may be 21-2 to 3
feet apart, not over 8 feet.
For hay, the beans may be either
drilled solid or be planted in 2 1-2
foot rows. The yields of hay are
often better when planted in rows,
and where grass and weeds are bad,
it is advisable to plant in rows and
cultivate two or three times.
Inter-cropping with corn is prac
ticed extensively. The beans are
planted in the same row with the
corn or in case it is desired to har
vest the beans, the corn is planted in
six foot rows with a row of beans
between. The slightly reduced yields
of corn secured are more than offset
by the soybean seed, pasturage and
soil improvement secured. - - ,
When soybeans are to be grown on
land for the first time, jt is generally
advisable to inoculate. A:t;ll-,
For seed production, with rows 8 to
S 1-2 feet apart, use 80 to 50 pounds
of the large seeded varieties. Fo

rows or Z bushels when -drilled solid.

accordingly act in their own and
the country's Interest by purchas

The brightest and best quality of
hay is made by curing in small
stacks. The vines should be allowed
to wilt and then be put in small
stacks like peanuts. The stacks should
not be more than 8 to 4 feet across.
The sticks or lathes are nailed to the
pole about 18 inches from the ground
to keep' the hay off the ground and
allow for thorough ventilation and
drying out.
Soybeans furnish excellent pastur
age for growing hogs, sheep and
other livestock. Early, medium and
late varieties Bhould be grown for
hogs. The Herman planted 'with an
early variety of corn such ajffarvis1
Golden Prolific will furnish 'pasture
during August and September. The
Mammoth Yellow and Tokycf during
October and November, and the Biloxi
during December, January and Feb
ruary. ...
After the ears have been harvest
ed, corn fields in which beans were
grown will furnish good pasturage
for all kinds of livestock during, the
winter months. Non shattering varie
ties such as the Biloxi and ' George
Washington, are preferred for winter
pasturage purposes. . . j.
The greater part of the seed crop
in the eastern part of the State is
harvested with the single row har
vester. This type of "harvester will
save 60 to 85 per cent of the seed of
the upright growing varieties. -i -Seed

beans at current oil mill prices, with
yields of 12 to 20 bushels per acre
with the returns from' beans alone
considered but this will at least
cover the cost of production and the
vines left on the land are worth sev

Cash Prizes Offered
For Farm Records
Prizes valued at more than $1,000
are offered North Carolina 4-H club
members who keep accurate farm re
cords this year in the national farm
account contest.
The contest, sponsored by the In
ternational Harvester Company, is de.
signed to stimulate a greater interest
in the keeping of accurate farm re
cords, according to L. R. Harrill, 4-H
club leader at State College.
To county winners will go prizes
worth $10, and the State winner will
receive $100. The latter will com
pete in the sectional contest, for
which a $250 prize is offered. The
national winner will receive an award
valued at $500.
The records may be kept in any
suitable farnt record book - which
shows a complete ' inventory of all
farm possessions at . the beginning
and the end of the 12-month period,
a record of money received and paid
out during the year" and: What the re
ceipts and expenditures were for; and
a balance sheet, showing how much
money the farm made or-lost.
The records will be judged on the
following points : completeness, accu
racy, and neatness, 50 points; analy
sis ana suggestions, tor changes in
the farm plant to increase earnings",
