cattails one can get more than 5,
000 pounds of refined flour from
It has been discovered that cattails
have large stalks or rhizomes running in
several directions! usually a distance of
30 inches or more underground. The soil
underneath a marsh' oi cattails is a per
feet network of these stalks,, the. stalks
being1 about an inch thick and the center
of every stalk : a- core - of solid material
that is almost a solid mass of starch.
The Indians used to eat these roots
for food and muskrats hrive on them.
From one acre of cattails' 10,792 pounds
of these stalks have been taken and the
actual yield of manufactured and sifted
flour was 5,500 pounds.
A sample of the flour thus obtained
was sent to Washington to the Food Ad
ministration office. This office turned the
sample over to the Plant Chemical Lab
oratory, where an analysis of . the flour
was made. J. A. IjeClerc, the chemist
in charge, in. his report on the. analysis
"This material has approximately the
same amount of protein - that, is found
in rice and corn flours. , The fat content
is somewhat lower than that found even
in wheat . flour. In view : ot . our, expe
rience on the use "ot flour-substitutes in
bakine. we see no reason why cattail
flour could not be used to the extent
of 10 to 20 per cent as part substitute
for wheat flour.

MUCH TYPHOID FEVER
DURING THE SUMMER
Folks Who Live in. City and County
Pay Heavy Penalty for Neglect
During the months of June. July and
August there were 26 cases of typhoid
fever in Elizabeth City and Pasquotank
county, according to figures just given
out by Dr. Zenas Fearing, County Health
Offiror. Not a single one of. the victims
had ever been inoculated wtih the anti
typhoid serum, and Ur. rearing points
out that this is proof of the most con
vincing sort that the preventive treat
ment is thoroughly effective.
Typhoid, according to r. Fearing, is
only contracted by. the swallowing of hu
man or animal filth infected with the
"firm of the disease, and the number of
-a-sr-s recorded during the past three
months is anything but creditable to the
attitude of the people toward even the
most ordinary measures of sanitation.

tells a graphic and highly interesting
story of the bombardment of Elizabeth
City by Federal gunboats in February,
1862. ; He says that, three days after

interrupted by ' a Confederate fort which
had been hastily erected on Cobb's Point.
a few miles below Elizabeth City; with
an armament of a few twelve-pouiid guns.
As these began to fire upon the gunboats.
the latter were turned slightly from their

After the fort had been thus Quickly
reduced, the Federals continued to Eliz

of the town followed. Everybody left in
a hurry, and an effort was made by the
Southerners to burn the town, which was
not entirely successful, for the Federals
came ashore and put out the flames
wherever they could. Among the build
