Lord Athleigh was seriously dis
turbed about the state of affairs in
Ireland. On his return to England
he would have to submit a report to
the Government and that report must
explain why Sir John Alroyd's meas
ures to curb the insurgents were in-
effective. Riordan's spies were every
where; they burned barracks, blew up
trains, destroyed complete shipments
of munitions. And as yet the Intelli
gence Service had no idea what he
looked like. Meanwhile civilian dam
age claims mounted appallingly.
On the morning after their arrival
Helen wheedled Colonel Loder into
permitting her to go shopping alone
in Dublin. Gerald was worried.
"Colonel Loder t Mowed!" ha ex
ploded. "He's not well, he's not in
love with you." He grinned at her
sheepishly, as if ho had said more
thnn he intended.
Helen placed- her hand gently on
his arm. "I wish you weren't, Ger

Gerald said flippantly. "It's been go

wita Helen to show her the road
back to the Lodge.
Helen had never ridden a bicycle
nefore and she had some difficulty
.controlling it It was not until an
hour later that she realised something
was mong. They were on a country
road. .Seeing her perplexity, Dennis
explained:'. v ,

Helea frowned. She nreserved a
fnriotos and dignified silence as she
nushed her bicycle up a hill. For
some minutes neither of them spoke.
"If yon don't speak to me soon,
Lady Helen, Til be thinking you're
guilty yourself of being 'blind to ev
erything except hatred'!'' laughed
The view from the hilltop, 'when
they reached it, was everything that
Delink had promised. The valley.
verdant and peaceful, lay stretched
before them. The tranquillity of the
scene enveloped Helen and her anger

of poetry in Gaelic and translated
them for her.

i Cottonseed Growers
Cottonseed, once a -waste product,
brought Southern farmers $195,195,-
000 in 1936 as a result of the best
prices since 1927-28, according to of
ficial Department of Agriculture esti
mates, just released,
Southern cotton growers received
$47,712,00 more .for their J936 cot
tonseed production ithan for their
1935 crop, an analysis of the Depart
ment's figures made by A. L. Ward,
Educational Service Director of the
National Cottonseed Products Asso
Farmers' income from cottonseed
increased S2.a pel- cent in 1936 over
the 1935 total of $147,48S,0P0.
Best Price Since 1927
- In spite of a larger crop than in
1935, cotton oil mills paid Southern
growers a higher average price for
their cottonseed than at any time
since the 1927-28 season, Ward point
The average price of cottonseed in
the United States during the 1936
marketing. period was $35.41 per ton,
the Department of Agriculture esti
mated. This compares with $31.19,
the average for the 1935 crop, and
is the highest average since that of
$35.94 paid during the 1927-28 sea
son. Cotton oil mills paid growers a
price in 1936 that was higher even
than the averoge for 192829, at the
peak of the prosperity period. The
1936 average of $35.41 compares with
the average of $35.26 for the 1928-29
seasons. - j
Cottonseed prices in 1936, as com-1
pared with 1935 considerably great
er percentage increase than the price
if lint cotton. The percentage rise
over 1935 for lint cotton was 10.9
per cent, while the average price of
cottonseed rose 13.5 per cent.
Total Crop Larger
Production of cottonseed in 1936
amounted to 5,513,000 tons compared
with 4,729,000 tons in 1935, the De
A major factor in the greater re
turn received; by Southern growers
for their cottonseed has been the
higher value of cottonseed oil, Ward
pointed out. .Cottonseed oil, widely
used in vegetable shortening, mar
garine, salad oils and other products,
usually constitutes more than half
of the total value of the seed.
"Even greater revenues from their
cottonseed maybe expected by South-'
ern farmers, If they, with the aid of
other American fata and oils produc
ers, can secure the removal of pre
sent restrictions against the sale of
margarine, a food containing cotton
seed oil and other American pro
ducts," Ward said. "Taxes and license
fees, . both Federal and In many
States, unfairly restrict domestic
margarine sales and the market for

farmers. ; ' .
The New Year is a good time to
begin applying" more scientific prac

State College. The. use of the latest
approved practices will result in bet
ter yields in the case of crops and
in better animals and birds , in the
case of livestock and poultry.
Practically every subject pertain

be given a thorough discussion on the
Carolina Farm Features program
daring the next few weeks. In these
talks specialists will - point ont the
proper ways of starting in 1937 on
the right foot
The animal husbandry program is
presented each Monday and contains
news and information for livestock
growers. ' Each Friday' is set aside
for the poultry department to give
advice, to those who raise birds. The
home : demonstration department
takes charge of - the program each
Thursday and brings advice and help
