Large Summer Welding
Business Anticipated
By G. D. Cashwell Shop
“During the Summer months,
when the regular run of work
usually slacks off, a number of
enterprising welding shops have
kept themselves busy by actively
soliciting the business which exists
in practically every home in the
country.” said Mr. G. D. Cashwell,
owner and manager of the modern
welding shop located at 110 South
Water street.
“As always, this Summer we are
looking forward to doing lots of
work for homes in this vicinity.
There are countless numbers of
small jobs around every home that
our shop can do, and for most
economical rate:,.
“People spend more of their
time outdoors during this season
of the year, thus creating a timely
market for porch swings, lawn
furniture, children’s play-groUnd
fences and other items that are
cnees, and other items that are
readily fabricated from welded
piping. In addition, there are many
other items such as aquarium
stands, coffee tables, smoking
stands, lamps and benches which
can be fabricated by welding and
cutting.
« tfl_i _

ground so as to form pools add
to the attractiveness of any gar
den. A lily pond of this type is
very effective and easy to make.
Tanks of any size or shape can
be made by welding sheet steel
or by bronze-welding galvanized
iron. The cost of one of these pools
is very small compared to its use
fulness and decorative value.
“Among the handy articles
which can easily be made up in
our welding shop are all types of
ornamental metal work, such as
small hardware in antique or
hand - wrought finish. Perhaps
there is an old door somewhere
which could be improved by good
looking hinges. These can be made
by welding extensions to one of
the straps of ordinary butt hinges.
The extension can be in the form
of an arrow, for instrance, cut
with the blowpipe from steel plate.
The exposed portions of the hinges
can be heated with the blowpipe
flame and the surface peened to
give it the antique effect so much
in demand in ornamental metal
work. Attractive door handles and
latches can also be made by weld
ing, cutting, and heating. Bronze
used to join steel or iron gives a
two-tone finish which has proved
particularly popular.
“Lanterns for doorways are
readily fabricated from sheet met
al. The design of the lantern
should, of course, harmonize with
other iron work or the architectur
al style of the house. Where lant- :
erns are not desired, sconces for
the elctric lights will give the
antique effect. Window grilles, bal
conies, railing, grates and enclo
sures of all sorts may be useful
ior the Summer home.
“These are but a few suggest
ions as to what we can do for the
come in the way of ofnamental
ron work. However, the many
countless parts about the home
vhich we can repair with the blow
pipe should not be overlooked.
L,awn mowers, garden tools, radi
ators, registers, sewing machine
carts, laundry equipment, hot
vater boilers, drains, and bed
fames are typical things which
frequently can be saved by weld
ng. Also the Summer is an ideal
;ime to look to furnace repairs,
>uch as mending broken grates
and damaged flue piping, as well
is to the repair of cracked cast
ron stove parts.
“Regardless of how useless and
expensive repairing may seem
vhen something breaks around
four home a visit to our shop for
estimates and suggestions will, be
ippreciated,” concluded Mr. Cash
veil. “All work is guaranteed sat
sfactory. And, for those living out
irom town with equipment too
culky to bring to us, remember
hat we have completely portable
voiding outfits.”
“Build Forever” Theme
Stressed For Memorial
Work By Local Concern
‘“When we build let us think that
we build forever’ . . . the immortal
art critic of the last century thus
advises us, but how little we give
heed to his words with a single ex
ception. But when we place a
stone to the memory of those gone
before we fondly hope it may en
dure for all time. Our first thought
in considering a solution of the
problem is ‘will the material last.’
This thought is so uppermost in
the mind of a client that more oft
en than one cares to believe the
design and decoration are neglect
ed. Anything built to last forever
should be above all things beauti
ful and so these twin attributes
must dominate the builder’s creed.
We may have beauty without per
manence and permanence without
beauty, but a memorial to the
dead must have both these qual
ities. A memorial lacking beauty
does not deserve to endure while
real beauty is worthy of perpet
uity.
“What is beauty in a memorial?
With almost as many styles and
schools as we have artists, and
with every artist seeking his own
personal expression the question is
hard to answer. Therefore, we can
only let our esthetic nature be our
guide and seek the counsels of
those who have, through experi
ence and research, determined the
forms and elements which best
please the cultured eye. The ex
perienced designer so combines his
forrviP nnrl Pn li + i'liinp Virr wn+nvinl
that the finished result appeals
even though the eye of the behold
er is untrained. Music has been
said to be the universal language,
alleviating the sadness of death
and magnifying the powers of life.
“Some few years ago a leading
educational journal conducted a
competition to determine the most
beautiful words in the English
language. They were judged ac
cording to their beauty of sound as
well as beauty of meaning. The
thought occurs that these words
may be expressed in perpetual
stone even though many are per
sonal attributes. The designs rep
resent an attempt to interpret
these words in design.
“When we are speaking of beau
ty let us have a symbolic beauty
and therefore each and every win
ning word is visualized for you
that you may have a few suggest
ed guides in the choice of your
memorial. But in this practical
age we must always select our
memorial with regard to its dur
ability as well as beauty. Through
symbolism and atmosphere we
may impart to a monument some
attributes of a person. In every de
sign we have imparted life to the
inanimate. We have given to the
lifeless stone the qualities of a per
son. Few of our present-day me
morials have any symbolic quality
though in other arts this is achiev
;d through the written word.
“Our memorials are successful
surely if they express personal
ties. All monuments are more or
ess forms of biography. The build
:r, no matter what he does in the
lature of a memorial, should ex
jress the true character of his
dient. Gladstone it was who said,
Show me how a country takes
care of its dead and I will tell you
the state of its civilization.’ As a
family burial plot appears, so is
the family.”
Whatever your memorial needs
may be, at any time a visit to Car
olina Cut Stone company, 715 Mac
Rae street, or an appointment for
them to visit you will prove inval
uable in the selection and erection
of a suitable memorial for that
dear one passed on. Telephone

W. M. Edwards & Son
Explains Meaning Of
Term, “Horse Power”
"A common unit used in meas- 1
uring the rate of work done by ,
horses or by motors is the ‘horse
power.’ A ‘horse power’ is the '
performance of 33,000 foot pounds
of work per minute, a foot pound
being the amount of work done in ;
lifting one pound one foot against
the force of gravity. According to
this, if a horse exerts a pull of 150
pounds traveling at a speed of two
and one-half miles per hour . . .
220 feet per minute ... he does
33,000 pounds of work per minute,
or one ‘horse power.’ The total
daily work, then, is the product of
force, speed and work hours.
‘‘Therefore, to get maximum
■horse power,’ a horse must have
weight and strength for maximum
pulling power . . . force . . . snap,
and vigor for reasonable speed,
and plenty of endurance for long
hours in the harness.
‘‘Weight is no more a standard
ux mutss lor iiiuitfs mail it is iui
athletes. Mules fed a highly pal
atable mixed feed, sweet with mo
lasses and rich in variety of qual
ity ingredients will shed earlier
and reflect their good condition by
glossy coats. A few pounds of
Staf-O-Life Fitting Feed each day
added to your regular ration will
do wonders for your mules. Aside
from easily digested carbohydrate
ingredients for putting on flesh, it
has a carefully selected group of
high quality protein ingredients
and minerals and contains an
abundance of vitamins A and D
from Fortified Cod Liver Oil.
“The total digestible nutrients
needed by a horse or mule at hard
work is nearly double that of the
idle horse. Since the digestive ca
pacity is limited, this increase in
digestible nutrients must come
from an increase in concentrated
feeds.
“If it is true that ‘an army
moves on its stomach’ then it is
doubly true of horses and mules.
The pull and ‘horse power’ just
isn’t there unless the energy has
been deliberately placed there via
the food.”
For all your feed needs W. M.
Edwards & Son located at 114 Dock
street invite you to come in and
see them. Let them help you with
feed problems. They are your Staf
O-Life dealer selling the high qual
ity Staf-O-Life stock and poultry
feed and Milk-Flo dairy feeds.
WOUNDED ARRIVE
LONDON, May 26—UP)—An undis
closed number of wounded from the
British expeditionary force in France
arrived today at a city in the west
ern area of England. The men were
taken to three hospitals in the dis
trict.
Gray Sea Trout Popular
For Food, Game Quality
“One of the best eating fish to be
found in fish markets at this sea
son of the year is the Gray Sea
rrout,” said Mr. Fergus, owner of
he Eldridge Fergus Seafood Mar
ket located at City Market.
“The Gray Sea Trout is one of
he really important food and
fame fish along the Atlantic Coast,
ft rightfully enjoys a wide popu
arity, particularly in our Southern
states where its delicious flavor has
nade it a favorite with the con
sumer. Not unlike many of our
ish it too enjoys several different
lames. For example, it is com
nonly known as the Gray Sea
rrout or simply ‘Trout’ in the Car
ilinas and the Chesapeake states,
'few Jersey and New York know it
is the Weakfish. Southern New
England gives it the title of Sque
.eague.
“The Gray Sea Trout can be
■ecognized by its trim elongated
Jody, terminal mouth with the
ower jaw projecting a little be
yond the upper, a narrow band of
teeth on each jaw, two small fangs
in the front of the upper jaw,
vaguely outlined spots that tend
to run into each other to form ir
regular streaks, and small scales
on the dorsal and anal fins. The
only other common species in the
Middle and South Atlantic waters
that might be confused with this
fish is the Spotted Sea Trout.
“The Spotted Sea Trout has well
defined spots, and lacks the small
scales on the two fins.
“During 1938 it is reported that
279,500 pounds, valued at $36,995
were marketed as fresh packaged
fillets. In addition, 365,000 pounds,
valued at $25,800, were marketed
as a fresh, pan-dressed product.
There was a very limited amount
sold as frozen packaged fillets dur
ing this period. During 1939 a suc
cessful attempt was made by a
firm in Hampton, Virginia, to mar
ket quick - frozen, packaged Sea
Trout. This program will be en
larged upon during 1940 we under
stand.
“Sea Trout range from Massa
chusetts to Florida but are of ma
jor importance, as a fishery, in
sections between New York and
North Carolina. The center of this
fishery might be placed at the Nor
folk, Portsmouth and Hampton sec
tions of Virginia. ‘Trout’ are caught
throughout the year but the bulk of
the catch. comes in the Spring,
Summer and Fall months. Quite a
bit has been caught in the Winter
fishery in the past couple of years,
however.
“Investigations have shown that
there is an extensive migration of
the young Trout. It is definitely
known that at least half the catch
taken off New Jersey were hatched
off Virginia and North Carolina,
migrating northward when two or
three years old.
"The Gray Sea Trout is a pred
atory fish, feeding largely upon
other fish. Shrimp and other Crus
tacea are the only other foods tak
en in considerable numbers.
“The Gray Sea Trout is not only
a very important food fish for the
commercial fisheries but it is also
very important to the sports fish
erman. During the Spring run as
many as 400 sports fishing boats
are seen on the Atlantic seaboard.
“Especially good is this fish del
icacy sold at our market,” con
tinued Mr. Fergus, “where we pre
pared it for sale either as fillet or
whole. Telephone us at 2985 for
, one of the largest varieties of fish
of any local seafood market.”
The Eldridge Fergus Seafood
Market has a free delivery service
to Wilmington’s suburbs.
