Picking up bullfrogs on the streets
of Hertford is something new, it
would seem, though hunting - bull
frogs around the long, shoreline of
the Perquimans River has always
been a favorite sport in Hertford.
. . The unusually high tide which ac
companied the heavy rain of Sunday
evening, when the t wind -lashed .the
shores of the river - and flung the
spray high, drove the bullfrogs in
land, despite their well known aqos
" tie habits. - ' , - ...
' -Some of the big fellows probably
v came farther in shore, than they
1 knew. - It might: be said they went
too far. At any rate, big bullfrogs

Granville Wilt Invades ?
Eastern Tobacco Fields
Granville wilt of tobacco, scourge
of the crop in .Granville, Wake and
Durham counties, has. been found
generally distributed .throughout
eastern JNortn Carolina in a survey
made , last season . by. . Dr.. Luther
Shaw, plant' disease -specialist at
sSttte,-College.j : : k J -.-
" "In some - of : the - eastern ' counties
we found, that this .disease, has al
ready Assumed alarming propor
tions," says Dr. Shaw. "Unless steps
are taken to check its spread, the
disease will ibecome very destructive.
There is no practical method so far
developed for eliminating the wilt
from infested land nor do we know
of any method to reduce its damage
to tobacco once the sou has become
The important thing before eastern
tobacco growers is to try to prevent
further spread of the bacterium
which causes the trouble. So far,
Dr, Shaw says the disease is con
fined to small areas on many of the
farms and in most cases to one or
two fields on the farm.
Where the trouble Is confined to
these small areas, growers' must
avoid planting tobacco or other sus
ceptible crops on . these areas. Re
sistant crops had better be planted.
Then, Dr. Shaw suggests, try to pre
vent washing from the infested soil
to fields not now infested. This may
be done with a good system of ter
races and drainage ditches.; .Next, do
not carry stalks and tobacco trash
from infested , to uninfeeted fields.
Third, do not carry soil on plows or
by other means from the infested
areas to fields free of the disease.
On farms where -" the disease is
generally present, Dr. Shaw suggests
a crop rotation lasting from; tare
to five years, using resistant or im
mune crops on the fields when to
bacco is not to be planted thereon.
Timely Questions On
- Farm Answered
Question: When should seed be
planted in too plant bed . for a late
crop of cabbage?
. Answer: ' This depends,. of course;
upon what section the planting isto
be made. In tha mountain section
the . seed should be sown about ".the
.first of May. For the coastal plain
and lower Piedmont sections the seed
should be put in between July 1 and
15. ;. In picking out the seed bed be
sure to select the best land possible
as cabbage is a heavy feeder and re
quires the best soil and fertilizer.
Prepare the soil thoroughly to a
fine pulverized condition. Mix ' tho
seed with a little sand and broadcast
over the seed bed. The bed should
then be covered with -a light layer
of chaff from an old straw or hay
pile or with woods Jitter.'
