CANNING CLUB GIRLS'
COOKING COURSE 1919
Canning Club Girls of Pasquotank are
learning to make and cook breads by the
following recipes: " ;;
BOLLS 1 QL of flour, I tablespoon,
ful of lard, I tablespoonful of sugtr, I
tsp. of salt, I yeast cake, I and one-half
cups of water. Sift flour, sugar, and salt
together, rub in the -lard. - Dissolve yeast
cake in 1-2 cup of warm. water, add to
flour then add the cup of water. Make
into a soft dough, work till smooth, put
in warm greased bowl to rise, let rise
'till double in bulk,, then work for 15 ot
20 minutes, make into rolls, place in
warm greased pan, let ris'e till double in
size, and bake in rather hot oven for 20
WORKED BISCUITS I Qt. of flour,
I tablespoonful of lard, -I -teaspoonut ot
salt, I cup cold water. Sift flour and
salt, rub in the lard, add water and make
into a stiff dough. Work for 20 minutes,
or until dough blisters. Make into bis
cuit. Bake in hot oven. .
EGG BREAD I pint of milk, I cup
of meal, I teaspoonful of salt, 4 eggs.
Let milk come to a boil, add meal, stir
till smooth add lard and salt, take from
tire while cooling, beat the yolks of eggs,
add to the mush, then beat .whites of
eggs till very stiff, fold into the mixture,
and pour in warm greased pan. Bake
for 30 minutes in hot oven.
September is the best month for thor
oughly cleaning and overhauling the poul
try houses. When hens have been sit
ting, mites have had an opportunity to
multiply. To get rid of these pests, every
nest should be taken out, the litter burned
and the nests scalded or treated with in-,
seeticides. A hot whitewash, with kero
sene or cresol, will generally put the
wood work in good condition and clean
out the mites. Burn all of the old litter
in the building.
The roosting poles should be moveable
as well as the nest boxes, and periodic
tally taken out and scalded and sprayed
with, insecticides. - Apply crude oil where
the ends of roosts rests on wooden bars,
at the point of contact, this will prevent
mites, getting on the roosts at "night; .
The roof of the chicken house should
be inspected and put in order. A drip
ping roof means not only discomfort for
the fowls, but colds, cholera, roup and
other diseases. And physical discomfort
for the hen means extra expense for extra
feed and a reduction in egg pdoduction.
It saves to keep poultry comfortable and
Hens pant their prime as layers, (un
less, of. special value as breeders), should
be put in the fattening coops and sent to
market. AH surplus males Including all
cockerels under standard should also be
fitted for market as soon as possible; as
prices are apt to be best before the -time
when Thankagtiing and.- Christmas , tur
keys control the market. t f , t f
- Now is -thfj -time if it has not been
done- sooner,' to select" and begin . fitting
the best birds for showing at ? the Fairs,'
Community r or County - or- maybe State
Fair. White plumaged birds should be
given a thorough washing : and put in
houses with scratching sheds to prevent
suns. .. . .
Heine Henriette is the name of a lovely
climbing rose with pink buds that last a
long time. It is a profuse bloomer too
and one plant will give five times the
flowers that an ordinary bush rose does.
I wonder why so few people plant climb
ing roses when their space is so limited
fo a flat garden? A .climbing rose is
a garden on end. Mrs. Lindsay Patter-'
Nearly every one has a few pots of
ferns or other plants' about the house,
and nine .out of ten persons fail to water
them properly. They should be watered
thoroughly, but not too of ten one to
three times a week, depending on whether
the weather is hot or dry, or cool. Soak
the soli thoroughly and then let them
go until the soil is reasonably dry before
Take chances and plant a few rows of
snap beans, as except in the upper part
of the South the chances are good for
having them mature before frost, when
planted at this time. Progressive Farmer.

Abner Burfoot and Rodger Burfoot,
two of the defendants above named, will
take notice that an action entitled as
above has been commenced in the Su
Whirlwind Membership Drive To

Believing in the fact that this is the
psychological time for organizing an all
Southern American Cotton Association,
the North Carolina Division of the
American Cotton Association, working
in close co-operation with ten southern
cotton states, has started out in dead
earnest to put over its membership drive.
The preliminary plans for the drive are
now being circulated all over the cotton
Conferences will territory of the State, . and - growers,
bankers, merchants, editors, and profes
sional men are being circularised on be
half of the American Cotton Associa
tion. Three great motives are standing out
in this whirlwind campaign. The first
great factor is the unified and solid ef
fort to retain permanently a fair and
equitable price for cotton. In terms of
the prices of all other farm products,
thirty and thirty-five cent cotton is any
thing but high. In fact, based on cer
tified statements from various growers,
thirty cent cotton represents but very,
very . little above the cost of produc
tion of cotton.
. The second great motive is a united
Cotton South, in which all southern in
terests will be unified and co-ordinated
in the interest of the South, as the com
ing section of the United. States. Busi
ness interests all oyer the. State are re
sponding enthusiastically . and with
pledged assurance of line support. These
interests recognize that ' upon ' the fair
price of cotton rests the entire' prosper-
ity of the South and all southern people
feel that unless this fair price can be
maintained, the South will only enjo.v its
present prosperity in a temporary way.
