THINGS WORTH READING So many good—and bad—things are in print nowadays, that we must be careful, lest we go astray and be lieve some stuff that is not good for us. Sometimes in the little circular that comes to my desk, I find some of the brightest, most practical ideas and so well worth reading. A prominent woman, Marie Dress ier, is quoted in “Food Facts,” in substance, as follows: The modern cult among women is to reduce. No matter what happens just so you ladies remain slim. You resort to any means that promises a slim figure—some of it dangerous to you. When you want to make a thing better, you fatten it, don’t you? A cow, chicken, pig.—fruit or vege table—you grow them as big as pos sible . . . Dressier sagely remarks, “I never could see any beauty in the human skeleton.” She is right, too. Let me quote this interesting wom an again: “I fail to see where the fun is in a life that holds nothing more than a sip of orange juice for breakfast, two biscuits and a raisin for lunch, and a small portion of a grated car rot for dinner . . . This is a cruel diet for which there is no necessity. Women are advised against eating carbohydrates— and since they do not know what carbohydrates are, they ‘play safe’ and eat next to noth ing at all.” I know a lady neighbor, who must weigh almost 300. She is as happy a woman as I know. Seemingly per fect care-free. I saw. her dining at a restaurant the other day—she sat at the corner on one of those little perches provided for speed . . . She was the picture of happy content. Isn't that about all that matters? Agricultural use of explosives is a new subject taught farmers by the Alabama Polytechnic institute ex tension service.

That difference is in the stretch and come back—you can see how Supertwist cord stretches and comes back, how the cord in other tires loses its life and elasticity ...

FARM NEWS By W. B. COLONS, County Agent WOOL Wool prices at present are better than they were a year ago. I real ize that a large number of farmers needs to sell their wool in order to meet their current- obligations for fertilizer, seeds, and other farm nec essities. However it will be poor economy for our farmers to sell their wool at a comparatively low price in order to get their money for it at an early date. The officers and directors of the wool pools in the county will make ! an effort to sell our wool at the. earliest date that it can be sold, at the most favorable price that can be had. It will be to the interest of every farmer in the county to keep their wool until the wool price for this year is fully established, and the best price obtainable can be had. Hold your wool, stick to the pool, i and get the price that your wool is worth. SOIL EROSION The U. S. Department of Agricul ture has made accurate checks and found that 21 times more soil fer tility is washed away than taken out by crops each year. Anyone can readily see that this is a tremendous waste. We have had a large number of hard washing rains this spring and it is appalling to see the amount of good top soil washed across roads, into creeks and on out in the rivers. It must be disheartening to any farmer to go out and look at his field filled with gullies as deep as it was plowed. Some of the most gullied fields are the small field on the lower side of pastures. Erosion of this kind can nearly always be prevented by a few hours work with a team and plow. Deep furrows should be plowed through the pasture to car-! ry the water around the field in cultivation. Cut hillside ditches through your fields, above your fields, or around your fields if necessary to prevent the fine top soil from being washed away. Remember that your time and labor is thrown away in cultivating a field that washes badly. It will cost more to build it back than your crop will be worth. BEER NETS 930,000 IN WEEK Beer contributed about $50,000 to North Carolina’s state revenue last week, revenue officials have esti mated.
