Neglect is bound to decrease the fertility of your soil, and in the end to ruin it. .The rule of the small truck and vineyard farmers of Europe where a high standard of fertility is main tained is 'A load for a load," and every time they take a load of produce to market they bring back a load of manure to spread on the farm. If you attempt to fertilize by spreading manure with a fork," you fertilize unevenly and waste fully half of the manure. A Corn King Manure Spreader is a Necessity on Every Farm A Corn King distributes fertilizer evenly in a light or heavy coat, and pulverized so that the plant food elements combine quickly with the soil. It has many mechanical advantages the apron moves xm steel rollers running on steel tracks reduces draft and prevents the apron from slipping under the load. The apron feed mechanism and beater gears are provided with shields, which protect them from sleet, snow, and manure. A strong, durable feed moves the apron steadily toward the beater at any desired rate of speed even spreading whether going uphill or down. . . All of these things and many more we can show you if you will come in to see us. We have Corn King spreaders in all sizes to meet your requirements ' ' . TS. MORRISON & COMPANY, Ashe Tille. . C.

In a letter to collectors, Mr. Osborn said: "Collectors are advised that the oh ject of this provision of law is effl- cieny and only emcieny, and that I any tendency to use this class of ap pointments merely for personal re ward, or for anything that savors of the spoils system, disregard of public duty.

V I was much interested ia the recent editorial' experience reported in Farm and Fireside concerning the over-productions in the great West, but no one in eastern regions should allow - the fear of over-production to lead him lo neglect his apple-trees' until after a Careful Stnf?v nf . th ln rm.J ( wi mu DlLuauuu. i MB nearness to centers of population is a very important factor in ine problem. Any consideration of the production ot apples in the future "should take into account the spread of two insect pests which have already revolution ised orcharding as far -a sthey" have rn" i-8bted I mean the brown tail and the gipsy moths. Start- iii x d8tetn xviassachu setts, these pests have become well scattered over New England, and every year are ex tending toward the North, West and South. Th e brown-tail goes the f a s ter and Is especially disastrous to ap ple trees,-" which form its favorite food. supply During recent trips in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, extending from near the "point of origin of this moth to about its north ern limit, I have seen thousands of dead and dying apple trees scouraged by' the brown-tail caterpillars. Two Enemies to Fight In the regions where the peats hav been - present longest they are not new- so destructive as they are where they have come more recently. In the former places their enemies seem to have established a balance, but as they, spread outward they are virulent fo- enough years to destroy every apple tree that is not cherished by careful attention. In northern New England there are probably millions of native wild apples scattered in woods and along highways. These ar? being ruthlessly destroyed, as well as every neglected tree in field or orch ard. . x The gipsy-moth caterpillars are rap idly following in the wake of th? brown tails to make their destructive vrork more certain. I recently saw within a mile or two of my farm in northern New Hampshire, which is probably the place farthest away from the origin of this pest. How they came there is a mystery, but perhaps a caterpillar crawled off a passing au tomobile. The result in reducing apple pro duction is. certain. Millions of peo ple who have heretofore defended upon the supply from the local trees are to be deprived of these and will probably have to buy their apples from those who have' cherished their trees through all dangers. , - Already the wave of enthusiasm that attended the planting of orch ards in New England a few years ago it passing and the reaction setting in Borers, deer mice, scale insects and caterpillars have all done their part to discourage thousands of planters and lead practically to the abandon ment of many promising orchards. Changes of ownership Jiave caused others to be neglected, and it is be coming more and more evident that there will be no over-production of epnles in Tew England for many years to come. So if you have. any apple trees in the eastern region of the United Slates, where the population is large pprl market, near at hand, cherish them and a fair reward is certain. Government Cortinnes Von Rnck "Bug" Treatment. Washington. Surgeon General Blue declared today that it will probably b3 from four to six weeks before Drs. Crowe and Stimson will make their report following, an investigation as the merits of the vaccine of Dr. Karl von Ruck, of Asheville, N. C, for the prevention of tuberculosis. He de clared also that until their reports are made and gone over fully by him noth ing will be made public as to whether or not the-report will be favorable. Drs. Crowe and Stimson are under order to maintain a strict secrecy as to their findings, and Surgeon General Blue stated that the reports printed in a local paper that the report would be highly unfavorable are not based on any Information received through his department. The two government surgeons who have been in Asheville several weeks investigating returned to Washington a few days ago .and are now engaged in preparing their reports. Dr. Stim son went at the direction of the public health service, and Dr. Crowe, who Is a navy surgeon, at the direction ot Sfcretary Daniels.. Both .investiga tions were made as the result of reso lutions introduced in the senate oy Senators Overman and Luke Lea, of Tennessee. , j " 13S TOSTMASTERS. .Will he Appointed Soon in Tenth Congressional District.

He does not think, how ever, that there is. any necessity at the ' present time for the ' association to conduct an active campaign for the reduction of freight rates, as has been carried on in for immediate past. bur. he .believes that the organization J should be continued. Governor Craig was. then asked for his opinion as to just what the peo ple of the Instate gained through the agreement reached by the special ses sion of the general assembly with the railways of the stated He expressed himself very, freely to the effect that these reductions amount to a greaY deal to the state, and that much more was gained by .this agreement than could possibly have been gained in any other manner, He pointed to the fact that the railroads made conces sions on all classes of incoming freight from the territory north of the Ohio river and west of the Mississippi. As to "the concesssions granted on out going freight, he referred to the fact that on furniture shipments to the Pa cific slope and the inter-mountain sec tion between the Rockies and the Sierra Nevadas the concessions cover ed everything that was asked. He said that a great deal of North Caro lina furniture Is sold in these sections now, and that with the reductions" the field is considered an exceedingly good one. The reduction in freight on a car of furniture to these western points under the agreemetn, amounts to $12, which he considers no incon siderable amount. 1 . - He considers also that the agree ment on a maximum rate on all mer chandise shipped out of the state gives j the North Carolina shippers a decided advantage, and believes that North North Carolina cities are now placed on ah equality with those of, Virginia and can compete with them with a show of success. Accordin'gto the agreement, no re ductions were made on incoming freight from the north and east, but Governor Craig and the members of the corporation commission have the right to bring suits before the inter state commerce commission to secure these reductions. He will confer with the members of the commission as to the advisability of such suits, and it is likely that they will be instituted. If such suits are instituted and won, it will mean that the rates will be based on Wilmington as a deep water port, and Governor Craig believes that the rates will be affected as far Inland as Charlotte. , Relative to these rates from the north and east, Governor Craig point ed out that the material benefits to the people of the state have been secured in the reductions from the west, since this 'source comes the heavy supplies, farming machinery and other heavy freight on which the reduction in the cost of transportation amounts to a great deal. Reductions on the lighter freights from theeast, as on clothing and like supplies, will prove beneficial he thinks to the dealers, though they -'il not be felt so much by the people generally. It will mean another fac tor in favor of the North , Carolina cnies In competition with those of Virginia. Pleased With Rate Law. Governor Craig is especially pleased with the reductions secured by the state bv the passage of Mr. Justice's I tractate law. He says that when tills law- guca a.-i, iuv - - a cities will be "put out of business" in North Carolina. The new intrastate rates, he says, will put North Caroli na cities far ahead of Virginia cities for an area of at least 40 miles in ever direction and the business of practically the entire state can there fore be taken care of at home. These intrastate rates are to go into effect 60 days from the date of the passage of the bill, but an amendment to the bill provides that if the rail ways lodge complaints concerning the riew rates the governor is empowered to appoint a commission to make further adjustments, if any are found r-pceesary on investigation, and to Buspend'the execution of the law for additional 60 days. Governor Craig says that there has been no InT tiroation as yet that the, railways will make a complaint, and-he says furtb or that none will be considered if it appears that it s mad with the evi dent intention of deferring the execu tion of the law. He does not believe that there will be any trouble about the matter and -ooms confident that at the end of two vears, when the intrastate law expires, tvipt rap can 'be adjusted without further legislation. He appears to be onite sanguine over the situation, and well pleased with - the accomplish ments of the special session. Better Treacher. The brethren of the west are coming right along.

President Herbert Welch, of Ohio Wesleyan university, said the present day social reform movement is noth ing more than a revival of political activity and a revival of business ethics. He said instead of merely giv ing immediate ' relief in social cases now, the students of . the reform movement considered methods to pre vent a recurrence and the causes. As an illustration he said good cooking and happy homes for tired men were remedies to prevent drunkenness. Associate Justice Ira E. .Robinson; of the Supreme court of West Virgin -la. declared all reforms do not begin with the government, but in the hearts of the citizens. ' ' Important to Potato Growers. Prior to 1912 a great many potatoes were imported from abroad, says Farm acd Fireside.. In 1911 the number of bushels was 15 millions. The quar antine against potato-wart, powdery, scab and pink tuber-rot will for some time shut out al lthe crop from Ger many, Austria-Hungary, Newfound land and the French Island in the St. Lawrence; St. Pierre and Miauelon. , This means that we shall have to produce all the potatoes we consume in the United States, except thos from the Bermudas and Canada. This condition will in all probability last for pome vears. and may be expected, to affect the price of the. crop. DROP And Hear the , ( ' " '.
