Shakespeare is the one universal author because he never describes S his heroines. Juliet was fourteen Wat and beautiful; that is all he says Leg about her looks. The Scandinavian | vefe ran picture her as a majestic blonde, lota the Kaffir as a coal-black Venus, the The Juliet of the Chinese has slant- t*an ing eyes; to the Spaniard she must Can ^ have the long black lashes of the Con: cow-eyed Andalusian Moor.

The unusual drought in thejmur j Northwest reduced the flow of water ions and cut down the production of olce-jemr r ricity.

The only independent persons are men thoso who own land. The only conn- olin; trie , who people care enough about we them to fight for them are those yeai made up largely of individual land- igna owners.

NORTH CA First Fari Next "V Harbi Urge Farmers of County' To Attend Farm Meeting The coming Farmers Institute will be a fine opportunity for farmers to get much needed information on better farming, especially soil improvement. Every aCre could, with reasonable, proper treatment, be made to produce t twice in money what it is now j producing. Gpme, you can't iosc. You can j gain in information and in operation , and therebv help yourself, your family, your neighbor and your county. H. J. HARDIN. t As a dealer in livestock, and knowing what it would mean to the county if wc had all the farms stocked with high grade cattle and j more of them. I want to urge every farmer, large or small, to attend the Farmers" institute to be .held in Boone next week. It :s an opportunity to get information that wc all heed just now. ARL1E W. BROWN. It seems that the Farmers' Institute should appeal to every farmer w.'.io wants to improve his soil, grow better crops, have better livestock and have a better knowledge of marketing. Never before h?.? a faculty of highly-trained people ever come to us for three days. If the people of this county will take advantage of the opportunity it will mean much to them. B. B. DOUGHERTY. 1 have just learned of the Farmers' Institute which is to be held at the Appalachian State Teachers Collope on January 28, 29 and 30, and want to congratulate the farmers of Watauga County on having an opportunity to hear trained men discuss farm problems of our county. 1 intend to attend every meeting because 1 know that it will be worth at least ?150.00 per ye-r to me to learn how to prevent and cure grubs and stomach worms in the few sheep which 1 own. i sincerely hope and believe that every progressive farmer in Watauga County will attend every one ot these meetings. BAXTER M. LINMEY. In our opinion no more forward step looking to the best interests of Watauga County has been taken in several years, than the campaign launched by the citizens of this county for better livestock, more production and greater economy along all agricultural lines. As a result of these efforts we .Save called together some of the best heads in North Carolina to discuss with us the all-important questions of livestock, horticulture, soil improvement and marketing, which we believe will ultimately place Watauga County in the high position she deserves to occupy in the farming life of North Carolina. Our county is sua agricultural and liv^itArlf ??J L. perity will be measureil exactly in proportion. to the degree of success attending her agricultural endeavors. We helieive our farmers prosper in proportion to fc'ie intelligent thought they give their problems, and the Farmers Institute next week offers a free and equal opportunity for all Wataugans to receive an authoritative education along every farming line. A more intensive farming program, in our opinion, will result in several hundred thousands of additional assets to the county each year and thus increase bank deposits, Building and Loan subscriptions, and promote a financially independent citizenship. Our officials are practically to a man, not only interested in farming, but are active farmers themselves, and they consider the problems of the farmer their individual problems. Meet us at the Institute and let's have a pleasant and profitable time together. W. H. GRAGG, Secretary.
