Agricultural Notes
By Blaine Jordan
The origin of the oat is not defi
nitely know. The oat crop is used
chiefly as a grain food for horses.
It is also a good feed for many other
classes of livestock, but its compara
tively high price limits its use
primarily to feed for horses. Oats
require a cool moist season to grow
successfully and it is important to
seed this crop as early in the spring
as possible so as to get plenty of
growth before warmer and dryer
weather comes. In this section oats
should be sown from about the mid
dle to the last of March for best re
sults. Plowing the land for oats
usually gives better yields than disc
ing. Use about two hundred pounds
of a complete fertilizer per acre. The
best oats to sow in this section are
the Fulghuin and Sweedish varieties.
These varieties are specially good
producers of grain. When oats are
to be cut for hay Burt and White
Spring oats should be used. The
usual rate of seeding oats is from
two bushels-per acre'for grain and
from two and one-half to three for
hay. Oats should be seeded from
one to two inches deep. Oats are
sown both broadcast and drilled.
Drilling usually gives the best re
Smut is undoubtedly the most
and destructive disease of
oats 1-n Korth Carolina, and up to the
present time, seed treatment for pre
vention has not become a general
practice. Oat smut may be prevented
by treating the seed with foralde
hyde. The vapors of formaldehyde
irritate the eyes, mouth and nasal
passages and for this reason, the
treatment should be made in a well
ventilated place where air currents
will carry the fumes away. One
method of treating with formalde
hyde is given below:
Dry or spray method—mix one
pint of formaldehyde with one pint
of water and pour it into -d quart
hand sprayer. This quart of solu
tion is sufficient to spray fifty
bushels of grain. Pile the oats on a
slean floor where they may be
shoveled back and forth.
While shoveling the grain from
one pile to another spray it with the
solution. Make one stroke with the
sprayer to one Shovel full of grain
when using a dirt shovel. After the
oats have been sprayed cover the
oile with sacks, blankets or canvass
which have been thoroughly sprayed.
Lieave the covers on the pile of
:reated grain for five or six hours,
or over night if necessary, The
;rain may then be bagged and sowed
it once. If it is to be stored for
nore than twenty four hours the pile
should be spread out and aired for
i day. After airing tHe oats the oats
nay he stored until planting time.

The magician exhibits a flower pot with hinged sides
on a table in the center of the stage. He opens out the
sides to show that this container is empty. Closing it
: up, he places a screen between it and the audience.
After a short period of magic incantations he removes
the screen. The astounded audience sees a beautiful
girl, covered to the shoulders in lovely flowers, rising
from the “empty” container. Where did she come from ?
The girl was hiding behind the drape of the table.
There is a trap door in the bottom of the flower pot,
with a hole large enough to.allow her to crawl through.
The flowers, called “magicians’ feather flowers,” are
a regular part of a magician’s outflt. The flower girl
wears a rubber tunic and a bathing cap to keep the
flowers compressed into small space. She slides the
tunic down and the flowers expand when she emerges.

A trick frequently worked in cigarette
advertising is the illusion that mildness
in a cigarette comes from mysterious
processes of manufacture.
EXPLANATION: AH popular ciga
rettes today are made in modem sani

ery. All are heat treated—some more
intensively than others, because raw,
inferior tobaccos require more inten
sive treatment than choice, ripe to
The real difference comes in the to
baccos that are used. The better the
tobacco, the milder it is.
It is a fact, well known by leaf
tobacco experts, that Camels
are made from finer, MORE
EXPENSIVE tobaccos than any other
popular brand.
That is why Camels are so mild. That
is why Camels have given more pleas

arette ever made.
It’s the secret of Camels’ rich “bou
