There ere three e*??nti?l condi tions necessary to make rural life pleasant and profitably in any country: (1) climate; (2) good pen pie (3) a soil sufficiently fertile to return to it* tiller a reasonable re ward for his labor. Most counties enjoy one or more of these conditions, but seldom do you find a county with all of these requirments as uuo ideal as set* tiers will find in this level, alluvial secthtn of Eastern North Carolina. With a summer temperature which rarely exceeds 90 decrees, and a winter seldom lower than 15 de crees above freezing, with little snow, making ja climate as near ideal for the continual abode of men and beast as din be desired, it is populated by a people who have persistently cultivated a broad and I generous hospitality, until it has j become a part of their nature. So pronounced is this characteristic of our people, that it is a subject for comment for strangers first visit ing in our county. , The soil is rich and wonderfully (Mto*4Slve to intelligent uian&ge me:ft.
