Chatham Record, Pittsboro, N. C.
Dear Mr. Peterson:
Will you please permit these few
lines space in your valuable paper.
This write-up is on Florida as I see
it. I have been here time and
have seen the country pretty well and
have formed acquaintance with a lot
01 people and find them very courte
ous and kind.
There is a great move on here in
real estate, called sub-divisions, which
is handled by men with means, and J
find those sales are handled with the
utmost care and skill, free bus trips,
free dinners, free lot, and good
music. All you have to do is look
it over and make the highest bid and
the lot is yours after paying the
price. This is all very good provided
the party buying knows his invest
ment is good, but lots of people are
so easy to lose their best judgment.
I think some of them are investing
thousands of dollars in those proper
ties where they will not ever see in a
Jong time their money again. Every
where I have been I find land very
high, especially on the Highways. A
man took me over his tract of 200
acres. 15 acres of this was in orange
grove, and he told me his best price •
was S6OO per acre for the whole tract.
This would be only $120,000 for the
200 acres. This land is 10 miles from
Orlando on the Dixie Highway. I
also vis'ted some of the vegetable
farms. This land is irrigated and up
to a high state of cultivation and I
am told that this land is valued as
as $6,000 per acre, while you

could go to the back country six to

land just as good, but not in cultiva

The orange industry is greater than
the average person would think. I
have seen groves ranging from a few
acres to 500 acres and lots of the
groves are just bent with fruit. I
think they are the most beautiful of
all things in Florida, though the state
is dotted with its beautiful lakes which
they tell me contain fish in abundance.
There are some Springs here that
are beautiful. Some of them are free
water and some sulphur water which
comes up from the ground and forms
a small river and this water is very
warm and does not vary one degree
in temperature winter or summer.
The climate here is fine but still there
are cold snaps that are nob so pleasant
and it is not always sunshine. You
see car numbers here in Orlando from
all parts of the U. S. A. Sometimes
you have to buy parking space ~or
drive almost out of town to park your
car. I see neyr buildings goihg up
in every direction oil the highways.

County Agent’s Letter
Explosive Delivered—JJairy Campaign
Discussed—Specialist to Come
A 20,000 pound car of Government'
explosive was delivered farmed of
Chatham, Randolph and Lee counties
this -week. Os this car, Chatham
cunty’s share Whs 8,000 pounds. The
County Agent has received a number
of inquiries for this material from
farmers who were unable to get the'r
orders in this car load. For this rea
son, it is hoped that we will be able
to order another car soon. It is also
planned to order two more cars of
soy beans, one delivered at Pittsboro,
and'One delivered at Siler City. The
prices on these beans will be approxi
mately $1.85 per bushel, delivered.
The Agent would like to hear from
any farmers interested in this explo
sive or beans.
In a recent meeting of the County
Agents of Randolph, Lee, Alamance
and Chatham counties, plans for a
dairy campaign were discussed.
l Dairy work has been going on in Ran
, dolph and Alamance for some time,
and in the opinion of many, this coun
! ty is better suited for the production
of dairy cows than either of the a
bove counties. Agricultural prosper
• ity follows the dairy cow, and dairy
ing shows a steady income the year
around. Not only this, but livestock
are the best builders of poor, worn
out land, through the use of the ma
nure returned to the land, and also
through the growing of the clovers,
alfalfa and other legumes, which are
soil improvers. It will not take very
long to convince a man that is milk
ing a few cows that he is losing
money unless he grows most of his
own feed (Alfalfa, clover and soy bean
hay) can be grown in Chatham county,
- where conditions are just as ideal, or
more so than in states like Ohio, In
diana, Wisconsin, etc. This program
-cannot be pushed to any great ex
tent until we are able to get our
farmers to have more and better pas
tures, and to grow more legumes,
but we believe that it can be done.
, One of the first steps in the progress
of this campaign is the eradication of,
the “Scrub Bull,” and the replacing
of him with pure breds of known his
In connection with the above work,
the County Agent is planning a coun
ty wide series of meetings, and hopes
to have Professors Arey and Kimrey,
Dairy Specialists of State College,
and others to address these meetings,
and help get us started in the work.
N. C. SHIVER,
The editor had the pleasure of
meeting Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Carter of
octSLonia last Friday when they were
in Chatham to attend the funeral of
the former’s uncle, Mr. W. L. Carter
< The young man is a son of Mr. A. B.
T Carter, who left Chatham more than
thirty years ago. He is a likable
young man and Mrs. Carter a charm

Mrs. Dark’s Funeral Largely Attended
—A Most Excellent Woman —A
Few Personal Notes
Mrs. Fred R. Dark died last Thurs
day morning in a hospital at Sanford
where she went for an operation a
few weeks ago.
The funeral service was conducted
at the Methodist church here on Fri
day afternoon at three o’clock by
Rev. R. R. Gordon of Pittsboro, after
which her body was placed in the
cemetery under a mound of beautiful
(lowers, in the presence of a large
crowd of friends and relatives.
Mrs. Dark’s death was a shock to
her family and friends. It -was
thought that she was getting on well.
Mrs. Dark was a most estimable
woman. She was charming in appear
ance and manner. She was a sincere
Christian. She was a member of
Sandy Pond Baptist church and was
a faithful member.
Her life was beautiful in the home.
She loved her home arid family and
she, with a devoted husband, raised
a family of four children, who are
noble in every respect. They are the
following: Miss Mollie Dark, Gold
ston, Miss Grace Dark, Pittsboro, Mr.
Marshall Dark, Raleigh and Mr. Joe
Dark, a student at Wake Forest Col
iege, There are four brothers: S. D.
Johnson, Will Johnson, Pittsboro, Joe
Johnson, Goldston, and John Johnson.
Mrs. Dark will certainly be missed
n the home and community. It is
hard to understand why our loved
ones are taken, but it is God’s works,
and some day we will understand
May God protect the bereaved ones
and keep them from any harm and
danger and may they be ready when

Veterinarian Begins Attack upon Tu

Tuberculosis eradication work in
Chatham county began on Monday,
January 23, with the arrival of Dr. L.
R. Sullivan, formerly of Caswell coun
ty. Dr. Sullivan is connected with
the Vetinary Division of The United
States Department of Agriculture,
and has ‘ conducted this work in the
counties of Lee, Union and Johnson,
and hopes to finish the work in this
county in a year.
Dr. Sullivan is beginning the work
in the vicinity of Goldston, and in
tends to work towards the. eastern
part us the county until the work is
completed. The importance of this
work can be readily realized when
we stop to; think that milk is a car
rier of tuberculosis germs, and a tu
bercular cow is a menace to any com
munity; . Not only this, but most
packers allow a two to three cent
premium on hogs from a tubercular
free county. In addition to this, the
sale of cattle can be conducted without
the expense of having'them tested for
tuberculosis. If this county ever
becomes a producer of livestock, buy
ers of cattle will become attracted
through this work.

One hears a great deal these days
, about girls and boys in our public
schools smoking ai.d drinking. Os
1 course, nowadays, when girls are
. seen doirig these things, the answer
is invariably that tney have as much
• right to go so as the boys. It does
■ not seem a question of right in that
sense of the word, for it has been
• proved, beyond a doubt, that the
! cigarette has long been the curse of
- the American youth. The question is,
should either boys or girls of school
l age be allowed to do anything that
is detrimental to either mind or body.
L What is the troubld with the home
. and the school if such conditions ex
- ist? Will these pupils of today—
; sometime in the future when they find
3 health impaired, bodies and minds
l weakened —put the blame upon the
parents and teachers who allowed
l them to form habits that retarded
; this mental and physical growth?
. Who will be to blame for such condi
tions? And how about the moral
standard in some schools today?
What is to be done in the matter of
cheating ? Os course there have al
ways been a few pupils in whom the
' sense of honor seemed lacking, but it
does seem that cheating is more pre
valent among pupils as a whole than
1 formerly. These statements are not
r made to start an argument nor are
they made from a critical viewpoint.
The existing conditions come very
near to us, and we are wondering and
thinking just how to meet them.
