Steps are now being taken in many counties to eradicate the tick and the
work is meeting with excellent results. . Farmers are finding out that cows which
have been dipped begin to gain steadily in flesh. The quality of their milk is
richer and it is also much more abundant.
Eastern North Carolina is destined to become a great stock raising country.)
The only thing that prevents it at present is the .cattle tick. As soon as the
live stock industry is bound to grow by leaps and bounds.

Time to Re-tire?
With the growing need of advertising
farm products and of identifying . farms
in connection with community enterpris
es, the Xorth Carolina Agricultural Ex
tension Service suggests that all farms
should have distinctive names, and that
during the winter when the family gets
together more treouentlv rluin ni- other
seasons, the maf.fcr of a name for the
farm may be discussed.
Among the must common typos of
name are derived Irom some topogra
phic feature of the farm, such as River
side. Uronfcdale. Lakeside, Ilillcrost,
Shady alley, Wondside, and the like.
Other farms take tlioiv
trees and are called Woodlawn. Shady
Lane. Oakhurst. Live Oak Farm, and
How Names are Derived
. A favorite form of name is made by
combining the old Lnglish words "hurst""
o- vroft". which mean homestead, with
t!;e name of the owner. This practice
g-ves rise to such names as Aldenhurst
.uiuiiMinir. sometimes the name
of the owner is suggested in a fanciful
way, as m the case ,of a farm once own
ed by ar former D.an Bailey of Cornell
uie rarm Doing known as Bailiwick. In
another instance, Stonefarm denoted .
name of the owner and the character of
the land. In still another instance, a
man who had looked forward all hi life
to acquiring a farm in his own rieht
i many celebrated Ins ownership by nam
ing his place Tona Farm.
The Extension Service points out that
a name should not be too fanciful, but
snoum De dignified and descriptive. lr
a majority of cases, it says, the simnl
and more commonplace the words that
are used, the better the result may be
CATTLE TICK COSTING
GATES $50,000 A YEAR
Dr. Bobbins Says Gates Can Save This
' Loss With 30 or 40 Vats
The cattle fever tick is costing the peo
ple of Gates county fifty thousand dol
lars every year, according To figures
compiled by lr. Hartwell Kobbins. In
spector in Charge of Tick Eradication
in Xorth Carolina. The more than H.OOO
cattle in Gates are worth an an average
S10 per head less than the cattle from
tick free counties. As a part of an in
tensive campaign to rid Gates county of
the cattle tick. Dr. Robbins is mailing
a number of mimeographed letters to"!
representative citizens of the county,
pointing out the harm that the-tick is
doing, and the many good reasons . why
the pest should be done away with.
Only 30 or 40 dipping vats would be
necessary to place each cattle owner with
m easj reach of dipping fasilities. Then
a systematic campaign which would in
clude the dipping of all cattle every two
weeks- for a single season could readily
be carried out. Some farmers object to
dipping in the case of range . cattle be
cause of the difficulty of rounding the
cattle up at such frequent intervals, but,
as Dr. Robbins points out, the entire
0.000 cattle dipped in North Carolina
during last October were range cattle,
and Gates county stock raisers can do
as much as other cattle owners in the
State have done. It is to be hoped that
the people of Gates may gain a realiza
tion of the value of tick eradication,
and that they may see the wisdom of
spending a relatviely small srj:i for
