From 'the statements of automobile
men living in various parts of this State,
it appears that Virginia is carrying out

compelled to buy Virginia licenses, and
fined in addition.

NEW WAY of Heaftimi
World's Greatest Invention
Simple way of heating a four-room cellarlqss cottage by IDEAL-Areola
Radiator-Boiler and three AMERICAN Radiators
Easy heating of a cellarless office building by our IDEAL-Arcola
Radiator-Boiler and two AMERICAN Radiators
Puts IDEAL Hot Water Heating comfort at low cost in cottages
and stores y with or without cellars; heats each flat separately, etc
The IDEAL-Arcola takes the place of a parlor stove. But a stove wastes much
of its heat up the chimney, whereas the IDEAL-Arcola conveys its heat by hot
water circulationjthrough pipe:con'nected AMERICAN' Radiators stationed in the
adjoining rooms. Every bit of the big volume of heat developed from each pound
of fuel is therefore made useful in keeping ALL the rooms uniformly, healthfully
" an-n. There is no coal-waste. The JDEAL-Arcola does not rust out or wear
out will outlast the building is a genuine, permanent investment! ,
Shipped complete ready for immediate operation
The beauty of the IDEAL-Arcola method is that no cellar is needed. Everything is on one
floor. The Areola is placed in any room that has a chimney connection. No running to cellar.
If there are tvto or more tenants in the building, each can have his own Areola and make the
temperature to suit his own needs can make his own climate! If you do not wish at first to
heat the entire building, buy a small size IDEAL-Arcola and
later on buy extra sections for the IDEAL-Arcola and two or
three more radiators to warm other rooms. ,., ,
Cleanly heatinghealthful heating
free from fire-risk
Unlike stoves, there are no coal-gas leaks into the living-rooms. The
IDEAL-Arcola delivers soft, radiant warmth not the dry, burnt-out
atmosphere of stove heating. There is no fire-risk to buildingno danger

Much ineres is being shown all over
Norh Carolina in" Clean-Up Week, which
is now being observe h in her "State. The
,loss by fire In the State now amounts
to $4,000,000 annually, or $11,000 each
day. Three fourths of this loss, the
State' Insurance Commissioner main
tains, is due Co ignorance' or careless
ness, but principally to carelessness.
The loss of life by fire, according to
statistics of the "State Board of Health,
averages one a day for each day in the
year, but since January 1919 the ratio
has apparently increased and 'reports
now indicate between 500 and 600 deaths
by fire in the State during 1919.
What appears to be one of the gros

petty larceny. Cromer served on the

France 25 months, and when arrested
had an abselutely clean record. He had
no counsel to defend him, and was not
permitted to put witnesses on the stand

being investigated, and it is hoped that
he will soon be released.

After tabulating the information se
cured durine Aiijnist and September at
the two field stations, the entomologists
of the North Carolina Experiment Sta
tion find that thev have secured some
valuable working data on the worm which
ravaged sovbean fields in North Caro
lina this past summer Franklin Sher
man, the chief in entomology, spent
practically two months at a field sta
tion near this city, and R. W. Lieiby, his
assistant, was at Terra Cei, near Bel
At the time of the outbreak there
were no remedies practical for .controll
ing the worm in soybean fields, because
this crop was more or less new, and up
until that time the pest had confined
its attacks to clover. It was not known
as to -the natural enemies of the worm,
or what strength, of poisons the soy
bean could stand. However, the stud
ies made in these two- field stations
by Sherman and Lieiby have proven that
a dry mixture of powdered arsenate of
lead with dust lime was an effective
remedy and would not hurt the growth
of the plants. This treatment cost
about $1.50 to $3 per acre for materials,
and less where the dusting machine was
. It was also proven " conclusively thet
where the farmer was equipped for li
quid slpraying. the worm was easily
held in check by adding one pound of
powdered arsenate of lead to 25 gallons
of water. In this connection, the ento
mologist found it to be unnecessary to
try to get the poison on the under side
of the leaves. When very young' the
worms' do prefer the under side of lie
leaf, but before they become large enough
to be serious they eat their way through
and the poison on the upper surface
will easily destroy them.
Paris green, is was demonstrated, can
not be used -satisfactorily, as the experi
ments showed that it burns the piar.ts
In- addition to means of control, ?lr
Sherman and his associates gathered
some valuable information with refer
ence to the worms themselves, studying
them from the egg stage throughout the
entire generation. They also found a
smal' egg parasite which is' the most im
portant natural enemy. This parasite
killed cbuntless thousands of the soy
bean worms, yet it would take about 25
of the parasites with wings fully ex
tended to spread an inch.
The results of these studies states
Director Kilgore, have put the ento
mologists in a position to know definitely
how to handle the situation in case therei
should be another epidemic.
