One Dollar Per Year in Adrance

You cannot reason with a man
who it posessed with an idea; you
mutt wait until the idea hat spent
Many people claim they have
been healed by the laying on of
hands; It often works that way
Our homes would be brighter if
there was more singing, and less
complaining, more sunshine and
sympathy and less selfishness and
Some folks would rather go two
miles out of their way to find some
^difficulty or some unpleasantness
than find something pleasant and
M^helpful right at haud.
Other countries will be sending
millions of dollars to America for
foodstuffs during the next year or
two. Are we preparing to reap
our fulk share of this harvest?
Any man who seeks to embroil
our uation with any of the nations
now engaged in war, or who seeks
to stir up strife among the nations
?'f the world is a traitor to his
country and an enemy to mankind..
In these days of strenuous busi
ness rivalry, the man who thinks
he can winwuccess in his business
without advertising, is doomed to
disappointment and failure, He
can no more make a fortune that
way than he can fly to the moon.
The distraction of the European
war and the disturbed state of
Mexico inteferea to some extent
with an adequate celebration of
the hundred years of peace be
this country and Great Britain.
All the same the fact remains that
for a full century the United States
and Canada have lived side by side
h. concord and friendship. ?
Not a gun has been fired in
anger, no large garrisons have con
fronted eacii other, and no guns
have been pointed menacingly at
one another. It has -been a real
peace and not an armed truce.
The world has never presented
another spectacle quite the same,
and-itisall the more remarkable
as the boundry dividing the two
countries is really artificial, as
lakes and rivers are not considered
natural boundaries in any military
sense. . , H
During the century many grave
and intricate questions affecting
?both countries have sprung up and
called for thorough consideration
and tactful statesmanship, but
thev have always been ^settled
without the drawing of a sword of
the shedding of a drop of blood.
It is safe tossy that such a happy
_ result would not have been reached
if the border had been fortified
and patrolled by armed forces.
The truth is both nations have
acted on the principle, when at
peace prepare for more peace.
What a pity the nations of Europe
Jikve not acted towards each other
in the same spirit. If they had
the world would have been spared
ti e dreadful horror of the present

Hertford County Infected With j
Southern Cattle Tick. j
(Continued from page one.) j
under quarantine.- The Bureau of \
Animal Industry is offering to help j
eradicate the cattle ticks in these J
counties so they tnay be put above j
the quarantine line. The propo- j
sition is soon to be put up to Hert- I
ford county. In order to eradicate j
the cattle tick it is necessary for J
all cattle on tick-infested premises J
to be disenfeoted, by spraying or i
dipping, once, every two ipeeks, j
therefore, it is impossible to free i
a county from ticks and quarantine J
until after the stock law is adopted. J
The Federal government spent i
$400,000 and the slate of North i
Carolina $15,000 last-year id tick 1
eradication. Of course the tax i
payers of Hertford county con i
iributed their share of it; but what J
did they benefit from itl Quaran- i
tined cattle, such as the Hertford j
county cattle, bring from to two i
and a half cents a pound less than i
non-quarantined cattle. J
