says the barrel treater often used with!
cotton seed, is suitable for peanut seed
treatment if turned very slowly. If I
operated too quickly, seed may be
damagd. A barrel or drum with a
tight-fitting lid may be used, iti
should be rolled slowly along' the
ground or floor to coat the seed.
Watever the equipment, the contain

a known weight of peanut seedT The
required amount of seed protectant

GENTLEMEN: ? ' . ' '
First, we very sincerely say that we greatly appreciate the privilege of serving you with
your requirements of gasoline, kerosene, motor oik and greases as you find need for these
items, and in appreciation of this privilege, we have set up for your convenience systems that
we feel are a definite help in obtaining your five cents per gallon refund for gasoline used in
non-highway equipment. However, there are strict requirements relative to this particular
privilege that we feel we should discuss with you, and please understand that we are truly in
terested in your welfare s well as our own in making the following statement: '
The North Carolina Department of' Revenue definitely statest "Delivery tickets or in
'voices must carry a statement made by the seller THAT. THE TAX REFUND WILL BE
REQUESTED. THEY MUST BE MARKED PAID BY THE SELLER and MUST NOT
SHOW ANY ALTERATIONS OR ERASURES."
A small percentage of you gentlemen from time to time become delinquent in the pay
ment of the deliveries of these petroleum products, and we are sure that it has never crossed
your mind that we are not only sellers of these products, but have automatically and without
choice become tax collectors for the State and Federal Governments and that these taxes must
be remitted for without fail, and to properly comply with .these requirements WE MUST
COLLECT FOR DELIVERING within a very reasonable length bf time.
We ask that you be careful in determining those amounts used in non-highway equip
ment, and bear in mind that we are always anxious to serve you in any manner possible, but
in order to serve you best, we must have your cooperation in these matters. '
We are about at the starting point of another crop year, and may we say that we wish
for you the best of weather conditions for the economical crop and prices satisfactory to all.
