Timely Farm Questions
Answered at N. C. State
Question: Do you have any
printed information about how to
'spray fruit trees?
Answer: Yes. The Agricultural
Extension Service has a spray cal
endar for apples and a spray calen
dar for peaches, telling exactly the
sprays needed through the year and
how they are prepared. A card to
the agricultural editor at State Col
lege will bring each or both of the
calendars free of charge.
Question: How many eggs should
I set to be sure I have 100 new pul
lets in my flock after culling is
Answer: Generally, you may ex
pect 60 percent of all eggs to hatch
and unless you have some serious
disease outbreak you will raise 80
percent of the chicks hatched.
Therefore, out of every 100 eggs
set, you should get 60 chickens of
which about one-half Will bo cock
erels. The final flock, of. course,
will depend on the severity of cull
ing but one should get at least 25
good pullets from every 120 to 130
Question: Does land wash more
in winter than„in summer?
Answer: Because most cropped
land in North Carolina is planted to
cleanly cultivated crops, erosion is
greatest/in this State during the
summer months. The Soil Erosion

question and definite information
can be secured from the Superinten
dent, Mr. J. M. Snyder.

C. G. RICHARDSON,
In this startling trick, the magician seemingly pushes a huge
threaded needle through the body of an assistant, pulling the
needle out the other side, followed by the thread.
Under the clothes of the victim is a pipe, extending around one
side of his body from front to back. The needle, which is flexible,
is inserted in the front end of the pipe, is carried around the
body and emerges from the pipe in back. This operation is per
formed so quickly that the audience does not notice that the
needle and thread are momentarily shortened during the act.
Souses: "Magic Stage Illusions and Scientific Diversions "
by Albert A. Hopkins... Munn A Co.
It’s fun to be fooled —
...it’s more fun to KNOW
We like tricks...but we prefer to keep
them out of business.
Here’s one that’s interesting...The
illusion that by some obscure magic cer
tain cigarettes are "cooler" than others.
the explanation: Coolness is deter
mined by the speed of burning. Fresh
cigarettes bum slowly. They’re cool.
Parched, dry cigarettes bum fast.
Camels are carefully wrapped in
moisture-proof cellophane... in the fa
mous, air-tight Humidor Pack. Camels
are cool because they’re fresh.
A cigarette blended from choice non
irritating tobaccos also gives a cooler
effect than one that is harsh and acrid.
The finer the tobacco the less irritating
it is, and therefore the “cooler.”
It is a fact, well known by
leaf tobacco experts, that
Camels are made from finer,
MORE EXPENSIVE tobaccos than
any other popular brand. ^
This is why Camels are cool and mild,
non-irritating—full of flavor. This is
why Camels have given more pleasure
to more people than any other cigarette
ever made. It’s the tobacco that counts.
Keep the famous welded Humidor
Pack on your Camels. It assures you
a fresh, cool smoke.
