Cotton Seed Meal and Old Style Hulls

OLD STYLE COTTON SEED HULLS have more nutritive value than common hay, which costs 50 per cent more, is more convenient to handle, is perfectly free from dust or foreign matter and is healthful and appetizing.

COTTON SEED MEAL is the most concentrated and richest food known. Has about six times the nutritive value of corn and more than four times that of wheat bran, while its cost is one and a half times that of either.

THE MIXED FEED forms a “Balanced Ration,” giving better results, increased milk and butter production in cows, and in flesh, fat and general condition in all animals, and for cattle, horses and hogs, will reduce your feed bills and GIVES BETTER RESULTS than any other feed.

Treat Man and Man Alike

Mr. August Blum, Vice-President of the First National Bank of Chicago, in discussing “Some Modern Bank Problems,” had this to say in regard to our Government:

“Whatever our theoretic views may be, we must recognize that the Government, which means the people, through its collective organs, has a right to dictate, and insight upon certain methods which square with an enlightened democratic spirit, has a right to insist that public institutions treat man and man alike.”

This thing of treating man and man alike is nothing more than the “Golden Rule” expressed in other terms. It is in accordance with the very foundation of our Government.

Can you think of any other reason than the giving of every man perfect safety, courtesy, and incentive to growth, and something directly helpful to him in the handling of his business that has made the Farmers Banking and Trust Co.

We want the business of every man who has the handling of any money, and we will serve each and all alike, faithfully, and with the purpose of becoming necessary to him.

4-H BRAND RECIPES—VEGETABLES
CANNED TOMATOES

Select only ripe tomatoes for canning. Any fruit less well colored may be used for soup mixture or ketchup.

Scald by placing in wire basket and plunging this into boiling water for one minute, then immediately into cold water. The skin will slip off easily. Do not peel any more than may be immediately canned, as tomatoes ferment quickly.

Be careful to remove with sharp knife the hard part of tomato at stem, but do not cut into seed cells.

Put into cans as many whole tomatoes as possible, cutting them only when they are too large to slip in. Fill to within 1-4 inch of top, press gently and shake down fruit to fill crevices.

A level teaspoonful of sugar and a level teaspoonful of salt to a No. 3 can or a quart jar of tomatoes improve the flavor of the product.

Use no water with tomatoes. If the can is properly filled the juice will be sufficient. A No. 3 can of tomatoes when filled should weigh 38 ounces.

Exhaust No. 3 tin cans 3 minutes; seal; process 25 minutes.

When canning tomatoes in glass jars, process quart jars 40 minutes.

Process pint jars 30 minutes.

STRING BEANS

To can string beans select those that are young and tender and which have few strings. The Green Pod Stringless is a good variety. The trade likes a green bean about the size of a rat-tail, hence the term “rat-tail beans.” If the beans are gathered when young and tender, and every vestige of string is removed, there is no doubt of a market. Snap the bean at both ends, string, and put in the wire basket of the canner or in a thin cotton bag, and plunge into boiling water for from 3 to 5 minutes, and then into cold water. This removes certain acids and makes the flavor of the beans better. Never forget this when canning beans. Pack tightly in sterilized cans to within 1-4 inch of the top, and fill with hot water. Add 1 level teaspoonful of salt. (Instead of hot water and salt a brine may be used—1 gallon of water and one-third cup of salt.) Seal, exhaust No. 3 can for 3 minutes, tip, and return to the canner for 1 hour's processing.

Always can beans the same day they are gathered, remembering the motto, “Straight from the vine to the can.” This insures

sterilization in 1 day's cooking. Stale beans or old beans necessitate the three-day process.

When canning string beans in glass jars, process quart jars 1 hour and 25 minutes. Process pint jars 1 hour and 10 minutes.

SOUP MIXTURE.

Five quarts tomatoes; 2 quarts corn; 2 quarts okra; 2 tablespoonfuls sugar (level); 2 tablespoonfuls salt (level). Scald and peel tomatoes, cutting out green or hard spots. Chop and measure. Cut young and tender field or sugar corn from cob. Slice okra in rings 1-2 inch thick. Peel and quarter tomatoes. Place all in open agate kettle and boil until thick. Pour in No. 2 can while hot, seal, and process 1 hour. Process a No. 3 can 1 1-2 hours.

Always use an asbestos mat under the kettle when boiling soup mixture. It is very easily scorched.

When canning soup mixture in glass jars, process quart jars 2 hours. Process pint jars 1 1-2 hour.

SWEET POTATOES

The Norton yam or other varieties of yellow potatoes are best for canning.

Select potatoes of medium size. Place in wire trays or sacks and boil until three-fourths done. Remove peeling. Cut in slices three-quarters of an inch thick, pack No. 3 can full, using only 2 tablespoonfuls water in a can. This is known as a dry pack, and is the proper commercial pack.

Exhaust a No. 3 tin can 3 minutes; seal; process 3 hours.

When canning sweet potatoes in glass, process quart jars 3 1-2 hours. Process pint jars 3 hours.

SAUERKRAUT.

Sauerkraut is made by the natural fermentation of cabbage in casks. The cabbage heads are stripped of all outside or green leaves, leaving only the white, sound head. It is then cut into thin slices in a specially constructed machine. The long, fine-cut cabbage is evenly spread and well packed in casks. To each layer salt is added at the rate of about 2 pounds per 100 pounds of cabbage. The salt is used as flavoring and to modify in some degree the fermentation. If too much salt is used, a pinkish color results; if too little, the fermented product may become more or less slimy. The temperature of the weather at the time of putting up the cabbage also influences the fermentation. If the weather is very warm, the fermentation is too rapid, the product has a very white but more or less slimy appearance, and the cabbage is tough rather than of a natural crispness. If the temperature

is very low, the fermentation will be arrested. The best temperature is probably between 60 and 70 degrees F., and the process requires about four weeks. Fermentation begins as soon as the cabbage is placed in the cask, but there is only a slight rise of temperature as compared with most fermentation processes. A heavy foam rises to the top, which must be skimmed off every day, and when this ceases to form the brine goes down and the process is complete. Use can be made of the kraut at oncet, though it seems to be better after standing. The kraut will keep in the casks for a long time, provided there is no leakage, and the spoilage is usually limited to a few inches on the top.

Kraut is easily canned, which is the only clean way of dispensing it in groceries in small quantities. The canning should be done while it is in the freshest possible state at the point of production, when it is from 4 to 6 weeks old. Kraut is easily kept. The cans should be filled full, weighed, and sufficient hot water added to fill the can; then exhausted for 3 minutes, capped, and processed at boiling temperature for 25 minutes. This is for No. 3 cans.

When canning sauerkraut in glass, process quart jars 40 minutes.

CANNING PEPPERS

The peppers should be picked in the early morning and handled carefully to prevent bruising. This can be done by placing them in shallow trays, from which they can be easily sorted. The medium-sized, uniformly sound peppers should be canned whole. The irregular, broken ones may be cut into strips and canned or used in relishes, sauces, or soup mixtures.

Standard Packing in Tins.—Select sound, uniform peppers of medium size. To remove seeds, cut around the steam of each with a slender paring knife and remove the inside partitions. To peel, place the peppers in a hot oven from 6 to 10 minutes (until the skin blisters and cracks), being careful not to allow them to burn. Then remove the skin with a slender paring knife. Flatten the peppers and pack in horizontal layers. Place whole, uniform peppers in the cans, putting four peppers into the flat No. 1 can and eight into the No. 2 can.

This number makes the standard pack, the net weight of which should not be less than 1 pound in a No. 2 can and 8 ounces in a flat No. 1 can. The peppers should be so selected as to fill the cans. No liquid is used. The processing brings out of the peppers a thick liquor, which almost covers them in the can or jar. Cap and exhaust flat No. 1 cans for 2 minutes and No. 2 cans for 3 minutes. Tip and process in hot water at boiling

temperature, the flat No. 1 cans for 15 minutes, the No. 2 cans for 25 minutes.

When canning peppers in glass, use a 12-ounce or a pint jar and process 40 minutes.

CORN

In canning corn, select when it is young, tender, and at the milky stage. It is best to take it straight from the garden to the canner, as corn deteriorates very quickly.

Sugar corn is best, but if this corn cannot be had, use field corn; but be sure it is fresh and tender.

Blanch the corn on the cob for 2 minutes, then cut the corn from the cob, using a sharp knife.

TOMATO KETCHUP.

Select only ripe tomatoes for ketchup; wash, but do not peel; cut out green cores and bad places; quarter, measure, and place on stove in open-top porcelain-lined or agate vessel. For every gallon of tomatoes add 1 level cup of finely chopped onions. Boil until both tomato and onion are soft. Strain juice and pulp through a coarse wire sieve, mashing through all the pulp possible. Measure this strained pulp and juice and proceed as in the following recipe:

2gallons strained mixture tomatoes and onions.
21-2 level teaspoonfuls ground cloves,
3level teaspoonfuls ground ginger,
2level teospoonfuls ground red pepper,
3level tablespoonfuls ground allspice,
1level tablespoonful ground black pepper,
11-2 level cup (1-2-pint cup) sugar,
3-4level cup (1-2-pint cup) salt,
1quart vinegar.

Place strained tomatoes in agate vessel; add spices, sugar, and salt; boil until thick; then add hot vinegar slowly and let boil 30 minutes before beginning to bottle mixture.

Use clear flint 10-ounce grape-juice bottle. Wash well with soda and place in vessel of hot water until you are ready to use. It is best to put wire netting in the bottom of the vessel, place the bottles filled with water thereon, and let come to a boil, thus sterilizing. Pour out water. Fill hot bottles with boiling ketchup. Cork tightly.

The measures for all recipes must be taken level. Scrape off spoons with a knife, patting and scraping until measure is level. These measures have been taken accurately, and one should get good results if directions are followed to the letter.

A good ketchup may be made in winter by using 5 cans of 4-H

tomatoes, 1 cup of chopped onions, and half the quantity of all other ingredients mentioned in the above recipe.

CHILI SAUCE.

Tomatoes for chili sauce are mashed through a colander instead of through a sieve, thus allowing the seed to remain in the finished product. Use the same recipe as for tomato ketchup, adding 2 level cups chopped green sweet bell peppers (leaving out seed), another level teaspoon of ground red pepper, and 1 level tablespoonful of salt. Boil until quite thick—much thicker than ketchup. Put up in pint or half-pint glass jars, sealing as in canned products.

FIG PRESERVES

Gather figs when just ripe. (They must not be soft or cracked.) Peel carefully, trying not to cut too near the seed. Use 1 pound of sugar to each pound of fruit and the juice of 1-2 a lemon to each pound of fruit. Peeled figs will bear a much heavier syrup at the beginning of the preserving process than most fruits.

Put sugar in preserving kettle with enough water to keep from sticking. Stir occasionally until it begins to boil. Add lemon juice. This will prevent crystals forming. Add part of the figs; let them boil until clear and transparent. Remove to a platter, which should be placed in the sun if possible, and add more figs to syrup until all are used. When all figs are removed, boil syrup down until it is thick like honey. When this is done, pour in all the figs which have been sunning or standing; boil 2 minutes. Set aside until next morning, when they may be packed in jar No. 5042.

Process for 15 minutes.

GINGERED PEARS.

Ten pounds of pears, peeled and quartered; 7 1-2 pounds of sugar; 4 ounces of ginger root or 2 level tablespoonfuls of powdered ginger; juice and the grated yellow part of the rind of 3 lemons.

Grind pears through meat chopper. Place all ingredients in enameled kettle. Cook for about 2 hours, or until amber colored and of the consistency of jam. Pack while boiling hot in jar No. 5042 or in 4-H jam pot.

APPLE JELLY.

In making apple jelly select a good tart apple, firm and juicy. The winesap apple is excellent for this purpose. Wash well and take out all defective spots. Cut into quarters straight through the core and do not peel. The core and peeling give a great deal

of pectin, which is needed in jelly-making. Put these pieces in a porcelain-lined or agate vessel to cook. For each measure or weight of apple taken there should be added at least 1 measure or weight of water. With some fruits which are hard and difficult to cook it is the practice to add 1 1-2 measure or weight of water to each measure or weight of fruit taken. Cook until they are quite soft. Have ready a bag of unbleached muslin or flannel, which should be hung from a strong nail or hook, pour into it the cooked apples, and allow them to drip overnight into a large bowl. The juice thus obtained is measured next morning; and for every pint of juice add 1 level pint of sugar. Cook this mixture in a porcelain-lined or agate vessel until it jells—that is, until it slides in sheets from the spoon. Practice will make one expert in determining when jelly is cooked enough. If a centigrade thermometer is used the jelly should be done at about 105 1-2 degrees temperature. If cooked too long the product becomes sticky as do preserves, and then cannot be called jelly. Should one be fortunate enough to have any quinces it would be well to make the jelly half of apples and half of quinces. Quinces jell more easily than almost any other fruit.

After jelly is done, pour it in glasses which have been sterilized. Set away in a cool place, covering with a cloth, and next morning melt paraffin and pour a thin coating over every glass or jar. Never seal jelly while hot.

Put the top on the glass, write name on label, and paste it under the bottom of the glass. This will serve until the jelly is ready for the market, when the 4-H label may be pasted 1-4 inch from the lower edge of the glass.

SCUPPERNONG JELLY.

Grapes should not be fully ripe. Wash and place in vessel both the grape and the hull. It is best to pop the grape from the hull before cooking. Cook until soft, pour into a bag, let drip, measure 1 pint of juice to 1 level pint of sugar, and proceed as in apple jelly. Scuppernong jely made without the hulls is of light amber color and quite flat and insipid. When the hulls are added a beautiful red color and a delicious acid flavor is obtained.

To prevent cream of tartar crystals forming in scuppernong or any other grape jelly, can the boiled juice in glass jars and leave until the crystals form and deposit. The juice can then be poured off and used as given in the recipe.

It is hoped that North Carolina will make a specialty of its

Glover's Medicated Salt Cake For Stock


[Illustration:


Drawing of Horse, Mule and I.N. Glover]

Is rapidly becoming the most extensively used Stock Remedy on the market. It has proven its merits by its rapid growth in demand and sales. It is heartily endorsed by all stock owners whose stock need a tonic, or that are in a poor condition. We have on record a sworn testimonial from a user who says that he owned a horse that gained 180 pounds in 30 days and shedded his coat, with the additional use of it, under normal conditions. This may seem amazing but yet it is true. Your stock needs a tonic. It will cost you but a very little to give them what they need, and they will find it in Glover's MEDICATED Salt Cake. Constant use of it insures sound, hardy and vigorous stock. It relieves them of all diseases and wonderfully increases their worth and appearance. Glover's Medicated Salt Cake contains more medicines than any other Medicated Salt Cake sold, and is “Sold on a Guarantee.” It contains no cement, plaster parish, grits or detrimental ingredients, but is composed of pure drugs, lime and dairy salt. “A reward will be paid to anyone who produces one of our Medicated Salt Cakes that contains any grits, cement, plaster parish or detrimental ingredients.” Make Glover's Medicated Salt Cake your preference by purchasing a Cake now. When once used it insures a permanent customer. It is easy given and stock like it. Good for horses, mules, hogs, cows, and sheep. BUY IT FROM YOUR DEALER.

Heard In Smoking Car

“Talking about money, have any of you fellows seen the last statement of the FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF TARBORO, N. C.? It's a corker—over Six Hundred Thousand Dollars, and going right along up every day.” “Say, how do they get all that money anyway?” “Well, in the first place, it shows that the country is in good shape—there is plenty of money. Then those fellows in the First National are so accommodating. It doesn't make any difference whether you bank with them or not; they seem anxious to do you a favor, and of course when a fellow has been treated that way he deposits money with them when he has any.”

“Another thing: It's the LARGEST BANK and the only NATIONAL Bank in Tarboro. And too, the officers are wide AWAKE. They are not narrow. Why, you know they go out after business from other sections, towns and counties, and get it too. Yes sir, they get lots of it by mail, you just ought to go in and see those fellows.”

Back of Every Home—A Telephone!


[Illustration:


Drawing of houses with telephones behind]

There should be a telephone in every home—“Backing it up” with its dependability—against emergencies—against loneliness—against fear.

When sickness strikes—the telephone summons the doctor quicker than any known agency—It brings help that prolongs life.

When thieves break in to steal it summons the police once.

When fire breaks out—it puts you in immediate touch with the fire department. Home—possessions—lives—are saved.

Truly—the telephone is the guardian of the home!

Don't delay putting a telephone in your home.

It means so much—costs so little!

Ask today for details.

MR. FARMER:

Even greater are the advantages of rural telephone service to those who live outside the city. You can be kept in constant communication with friends and neighbors, and have the assurance of better protection, because you will always have a physician within talking distance of your home.

You can obtain telephone service at your country home at a small cost. Why not be progressive and make inquiries of any representative of the

EDGECOMBE COUNTY

HISTORICAL DATA

Edgecombe County, according to Wheeler's History of North Carolina, was formed from Craven County by Governor Burrington as early as 1733. Not until eight years later, however, or about 1741, did the Legislature which then met in Edenton, confirm the action of Governor Burrington. The new county was named after the Earl of Mount Edgecombe, a British naval officer who attained much fame about that time. Edgecombe in the Saxon meaning: “a valley environed by hills.”

History records that, notwithstanding Edgecombe's






[Illustration:

]

inland location, and therefore its remote situation from the dangers that befell the country in the efforts to throw off the British yoke, a great many of this county's sons distinguished themselves in the brave fight and many are the names of Edgecombe's citizens which have gone far to make the history of the Old North State one so full of brave, patriotic deeds. Amongst the most prominent of these gentlemen so active in the early days of Edgecombe County are to be counted: Robert Bignal, Henry Irwin, Duncan Lamon, Thos. Hunter, Thos. H. Hall, William Haywood, Elisha Battle, Jonas Johnson, Isaac Sessums, Wm. Horn, Nicholas Long, Jethro Sumner, Sherwood Haywood, Joseph Moore, Henry Horne, Exum Lewis, Simon Gray. All of them, through their civic spirit and untiring efforts towards the welfare of their county, attained high ranks.

The progress which has been Edgecombe's for nearly

two centuries, has manifested itself whenever occasion demanded it. Thus, as early as 1812, and contemporaneous with Raleigh, New Bern, Wilmington and other towns in Eastern North Carolina, George Howard, Jr., was printing in Edgecombe's capital, Tarboro, the “Tarboro Free Press.” It is to be noted that in those days no paper was being printed in the Tar Heel State west of Raleigh.

Again, when the Bank of the State of North Carolina was incorporated in Raleigh, in 1833, eight branches of this banking institution were established in some of the most prosperous towns in Eastern North Carolina, and Tarboro was one of them. Here the interests of the branch bank were intrusted to James Weddell, President; P. P. Lawrence, Cashier; R. Chapman, Teller.

Thus, early in its history, did Edgecombe County become





prominent amongst the leading counties in the State.

EDGECOMBE COUNTY—THE EXCELLENT COUNTY

An old county, but it has steadily improved with age, and is still going forward, in manufacturing as well as in agriculture.

In the county are five cotton seed oil mills, three cotton mills, two fertilizers.

Thirty years ago cotton was the only money crop in the county. Today the county raises crops to feed all the men and beasts within its borders.

Its peanut crop is almost a million bushels annually. Before the premium list is out it will have received over a million dollars from tobacco, with the crop not over a third sold. The cotton crop of the county averages 30,000 bales.

Many carloads of cattle and hogs are now shipped to northern markets.

Good roads are helping in the county's development. Sand and clay roads reach out into every community, linking all sections together. These roads never exceed a 2 1-2 per cent grade, thus enabling the wagon loads of former days to be more than doubled. These roads are prime factors in our school development. The one-teacher school is giving place to the many-teacher school centrally located in a large community to which the children are carried for miles in wagons and trucks.

As the county has progressed industrially so it has humanely—the home for the Aged and Infirm has every department and room lighted by electricity. These have the two other modern improvements—water and heat.

But seeing is believing, so come to the Fair at Tarboro





and you will see for yoursellf what the county is doing and what is only a beginning. If you come over our roads you will see that wooden structures have been replaced by shapely enduring concrete ones.

Come to the Fair and see for yourself that Edgecombe County is really the excellent county.
