Pigs Worth More Than
So far reported some twenty dogs
In the county have been destroyed
and replaced by pigs, in response to
a call by the assistant director of
relief to exchange a dog for a pig
among those who are receiving aid
from the relief fund.
This report comes from Mr. C. A.
Miles who has had personal super
vision of the killing of the dogs and
replacing them with pigs.
This is pritna facia evidence that
there are some people in the county
■who are willing to sacrifice in some
degree in order to co-operate with
those who are willing to help them
in their time of need.
There dre still hundreds of useless
dogs in the county that should be
destroyed and eliminate their nui
sance to farmers who have been
bothered with sheep killers and the
The game situation would be
greatly improved as well as the
amount paid out by the taxpayers
for sheep ahd goats that have been
destroyed by dogs, if hundreds more
were disposed of.
It is a certain tact that dogs des
troy the eggs of game birds to an
unestimat’ed degree every year and
in many instances they destroy the
young birds "When found in the
fields, so it is encouraging to know
that Alleghany is getting rid of a
menace to everybody when the use
less dogs are discarded.
We should encourage our neigh
bor to rid himself of all dogs that
are hot a profit to him or unless he
will ctihfrrie them better than here
Five Insect Pests
Will Disturb Gardener
Th$r.e are five insect pests which
•will greatly ^.disturb the gardener at
tempting ,tp produce his supply of
vegetables at home this year. , Since
so many citizens of North Carolina
are attempting to use the garden ir
place of the grocery store this year
E. B. .Morrow, extension horticul
turist at State College, urges them tr
be prepared to fight these insect
For those who can afford it, Mr,
Morrow recommends a compressed
air sprayer, of 2 or 3 gallon capacity.
A hand duster is also desirable.
“At any rate, we must get ready
to fight,; the Mexican bean beetle,
the Colorado potato beetle, the cab
bage worry, the cucumber beetle and
plant lice,’’, Mr. Morrow says. “The
best control for the bean beetle is
magnethu.hi prsenate used, at the rate
of oug pound to 50 gallons of water
or one, coytee to three gallons. The
magnesi.uhi, arsenate, may be used as
a dust by mixing one pound to three
pounds of hydrated lime. Either as
a spray or as a dust, the poison must
be applied to the under side of the
Plain old calcium arsenate or lead
arsenate will kill the' potato beetld
or bug A's a'spray, use 2 pounds to
50 gallons bf water, or as a dust
use fa/2 frbtinds of. the calcium arse
nate to S y2 pounds of hydrated lime.
Cabbage tvorms may be controlled
with exactly the same preparation.
The cucumber bettle plays havoc
with cucumbers, * cantaloupes and
•watermelons. One application of the
poisoned Bordeaux dust as sooii as
the plants are well up will give pro
tection for several weeks and some
times for the whole season but a re
peat application may he needed in
about ten days.
For plant lice, Mr. Morrow recom
mends nicotine sulphate which is ef
fective either as a spray or as a dust.
Plans For Meeting
Are Well Under Way
“l think the union meeting is a
fine thing/' Glenn Nichols, Presby
“I am heartily in favor of the
union riileeting which is to begin at
Sparta, on Sunday, May 7th. It
has always been my idea that the
various denominations in small
towns like ours could accomplish
more by uniting in their efforts to
promote the religious interests'of
the community.” Dalton Warren,
“There is much success to be ac
complished in a union meeting with
everyone working.” Ben. G. Reeves,
“I'm personally acquainted with
Mr. Armbrust, and think he is a
very able preacher.” Geo. Reeves,
Above will be found sofue state
ments from some of the business
men of . Sparta, Mr. Ambrust is a
man active in every good work in
his home- town. North Wilkesboro.
This is not one man’s meeting, but
oue in which the Christian force! of
Sparta are uniting. We call upon
the people of all denominations to
join with us to help make this meet
ing a success.
We believe that if we do our part
God will do his. A most cordial in
vitation is given to those who are
non-church members to meet with
us for the very first service, Sunday
night at seven-thirty, at which time
the song service will begin.

GEORGE ELLIS VAUGHAN
George Ellis Vaughan, son of
James and Caroline Vaughan, was
born in Grayson county. Indepen
dence, Va.. May 25, 1870 and de
parted this life April 18, 1933, age
62 years, 10 months and 23 days.
He was married to Genettie Gil
liam May 13. 1895. To this union
was born six children, Wilma Gentry,
Rlnidy, Dixie. Velma and Claytha
Vaughan, of Independence. Va., and
Luther Vaughan, of Rocks. Md.
He professed a hope in Christ and
joined the Missionary Baptist church
at Brush Creek in the year 1900. He
proved a faithful member until
death. He often said on his bed of
affliction that he had not aught
. against anyone and was ready to go
any time the Lord called him. He
was made to shout and praise the
Lord many times during his illness.
To know him was to love him and
his life was ever like an open book
whose pages were engraved with the
emblem of the Golden Rule. Self
was never considered before the in
terest of his fellow man. He often
said with David. "Oh, .that I had
wings that I might fly away and be
at rest for ever more", and on the
wings of angels, we believe, his
spirit was taken to Him who gave
it. Therefore there remains a rest
for the people of God.
He often expressed his desire to
live and be of more benefit to his
dear companion and children. I
i would say to them, weep not for
father, he was born on earth to
bloom in Heaven.
His neighbors will miss those gen
tle smiles that he always met them
with. No doubt the companion and
children will miss his sweet voice
when he was talking about his
blessed Saviour. They all should
remember the good advice he gave
them and strive harder to bfe pre
pared to meet him in Heaven.
A more devoted husband and fath
er never lived. On the day before
he pkssed away, his companion asked
him if he was ready when the call
came. His answer was, "yes, yes,
He is survived by his wife, six
children, three grandchildren, three
brothers: Ed and Talmadge, of In
dependence, Va.; Leff Vaughn, of
Bay wood, Va.; three sisters: Mrs.
Dora Wagoner and Leota Gentry, of
Montana, and Donna Poole, of In
dependence. Va. He was preceeded
to the great beyond by his father,,
mother, two brothers and one sister.
He also leaves a host of relatives
and friends to mourn his loss.
“Only a moment of dark, a dream
of the fleeting night, and then the
beautiful break of day and the
great place of the light, there
naught on earth to rest and all
things are changing, but the smiles
of father we gaze upon and friends
we hold so dear, one friend alone is
changeless, those too apt forget
whose love had stood for ages for
Jesus changes ■n'ot.”
Written by a friend and neighbor.

Question: Do you recommend
black locust for forest planting?
Answer: Yes. The black locust
grows very rapidly and is one of the
most durable of woods in contact
with the soil. 'this makes it de
sirable for fence posts and other
building material that is put in or
on the soil. It is also one of the le
gumes of the tree family and will
enrich poor, eroded, or other deplet
ed soil. A mixed planting of black
locust, with pine is recommended
for piedmont and eastern Carolina.
Question: Should a cow be milked
clean up to freshening time?
Answer: Some dairymen follow
this practice but it is not advisable
i as it always reduces the milk produc
tion during the following lactation
period and is a heavy drain on the
j vitality of the cow. Each cow needs
from one month to six weeks time
before calving to build up bodily
strength and to store up energy
