saw two young men yesterday who
were under the influence of liquor.
They met two little boys not far from

OBEY THE LAW.
After July First One Must Stop at
The General Assembly of North
Carolina has done the sane and com
mendable thing in passing an act, ef
fective July 1, 1923, requiring every
person operating a motor vehicle on
the public roads of this State to come
to a full stop at a distance not exceed
ing 60 feet from the nearest rail of
any railroad track crossing the public
road at grade.
This law is already working well
in Virginia. Drivers of automobiles
and trucks should not consider this
■ act a hardship but as an effort on the
1 part of the State to save them from
i injury and death,
f In the United States in 1921, 5,387
persons were killed or injured in auto
- mobile accidents at grade crossings
J with railways. In the last five years
i 9,101 persons have been killed in such
- accidents in the United States. North
l Carolina has contributed more than
1 heir full share to the list of victims.
i Violation of this law will consti
tute a misdemeanor, punishable by
fine or imprisonment. We do not see
why any person should violate a law
passed for his protection. We believe
1 that observance of this law will save

MANY BILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
Washington, June 15. —More than
three quarters of a billion dollars
theoretically will pass through the
treasury todav in the government’s
mid-year fiscal oneration.
Taxpavers of the covmtw -will eo^-
plete their second quarterly remit
tance of the year and at same time
the Treasury will receive a payment
from the British government of more
then seventy million dollars as an in
stallment on Great Britain’s war debt;
to the United States. The Treasury
has to pay out two hundred million
dollars to retire an issue of certifi
cates of indebtedness, maturing today,
but to offset this outgo, it will receive
more than $150,000,000 from the sale
of certificates under the recently an- j
nounced offer. # ,
Treasury officials predicted that the 1
second tax installment would net about '
$375,000,000. The first payment, |
March 15, brought more than four 1
hundred millions into the Treasury
but that included many smaller assess
ments which were paid in full.

BOLL WEEVILS IN LEE.
Beginning to Spread Rapidly and
Damaging Cotton. >
Last Saturday the editor of The
Record was in Sanford and he met
Mr. H. W. Coley, of Pocket township,
Jonesboro, Rt. 4. In a small bottle
he had caged some 40 or 50 boll wee
vils that he caught in a small space
in his cotton patch.
Mr. Coley is expecting trouble for
fair tjiis year, although last year they
did not bother him at all. On a tract
of land containing three acres he rais
ed seven bales in 1922, and on 17 ac
res he has planted this year he will
not average more than half a bale to
Heretofore Mr. Coley has always cut
the stalks and plowed them under in
in the fall of the year, but on the
small tract where the weevils are now
: plentiful, the stalks weer not cut and
turned under 'until March and while
i cutting them boll weevils were found
[ on the stalks. The patch was plant
ed by another main and Mr. Coley
, could not get the opportunity to cut
■ them in the fall.
He states that this is one of the
■ solutions of destroying the weevil—
> cut the stalks and turn them under in
! the fall. This is prehaps worth try
ing by Chatham county people, and
this experience of Mr. Coley is pub
lished for the benefit it may be to
