Thursday, March 16, 1941 13 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE This Story Clears Air /of Bad Odor Cleveland, (U.R)--This is not a story about an odor. Rather it is a tale concerning the increasing scarcity of the possesor of said odor--namely, the skunk. Trappers in Ohio blame the disappearance of the 1 valuable lur- bearing animal to disease. Conservation officials, however, report he skunk population lias boon de- ileted by -'over-trapping." Meanwhile, the ladies will soon doing without skunk i'ur coats. And professional trappers and farmers are losing a rich source of winter income. Worse, perhaps, is the word from Mantun, Ohio, farmers, who report u serious shortage in potato production because there are no skunks to dig out the grubs which feed oil the young potatoes. Trappers in northern Ohio counties say rabies--found mainly among doys--was killing off the white-striped woods kitty. Sports- men report finding full grown skunks lying dead in the fields of northern Ohio. The Ohio department of conservation, however, .discredits the disease report. Assistant Department Chief H. C. Hider says trapping has been "prohibited" in 13 southern and southeastern count- ties because of "over-trapping." Arthur M. Johnson, a Chardon, Ohio, fur buyers, says he has purchased only 40 skunk pells this year. Normally, he points out, "I buy 150 skins by the end of January." Another buyer, Forest Little of Middlefield, Oluo{ says he is purchasing "less and less" skunk. |NOT 1 -- N o t 2 --but · 8 euential ingredient!. ·8 ways to relieve · ·cold in one tablet.

What kind of carrots for your Victory garden Becomes a problem. The simplest answer is that whenever p o s s i b l e select those varieties whicii are known to grow well in your particular area. The main diUercnce in carrots is to the shape and length of the roots. Gardeners who must work with a. shallow or heavy clay soil should select only the short or half long varieties of carrots. The Oxheart is one of the shortest carrots. It is illustrated in the accompanying Garden-Graph. The root is txvo to four inches long and it is thicu-shouldered. This carrot is tender and of good iiavor. In moderately good clay soils, Chantenay and Danvera Half Lang, illustrated, are popular. When the soil is ot a deep, mellow texture, then the very attractive long-rooted varieties of carrots can oe grown successfully, for In this type of soil these long varieties can easily be pulled. Illustrated is Imperator the All- American Silver Meda, winner. It has roots seven to eight inches long and measuring one and one- half to two inches in diameter at the shoulder, imperator is a rich, deep orange color and scientists say the brighter the color the more vitamin A in carrots.
