Melp Needed in North Carolina.
Wlien a North Carolina writer cai
fret p.pace in a magazine he ought o
ntion nior of the things that are
feeing done in the .State and not make
it a point to t-pecially emphasize
what kvtn't being done. After de
tailing the ffplendjd progress trying
wade in North Carolina it is well
to call attention to thoee things
which are left undone and play the)
up as opportunities) which ought to
ivite Jtew corners. While we are
doing a great mauy things in North
Carolina, there are many things we
do not even undertake, and probo
blv theTeJ -ta a reanon for it. The
chief reason is a lack of capital and
Senator Simmon.", who recently re
turned to Washington, told the Star
correspondent at the National capi
tal that the chief trouble jr North
Carolina a lack of farm labor and
that there was employment in the
9Ute for 20,000 men who want em
ployment on the farm. Does not
that lnlcate that we are arming up
to the limit of our abiljty; to Kt
labor? How can we increase our
agricultural activities or wealth wit
ut more labor.
We might do it by adopting more
i tensive farming methods o we
can produce more on an acre of
land than we do. but while we
night make every acre count for
taore it takes capital to restore the
noil and farm on that scale. Many
are doing so at a great profit, but
many haven't get the means to do
that Wnd of farming. That might
seem curious to the fellow who
Knows nothing about farming but
it should be remembered that it
requjres capital to farm.
In a general way North Carolina
h doing well with her farms. We
actually produced more cotton in
1912 than we had the labor to
jrather. with the result that jn
many sections that were white with
ihe ttaple were turned under for
the planting of the 1913 crop. There
are other crops that we ought to
produce, but if we haven't got the
labor to gather our great money
crops, how can we grow other crops
Well, -we can only do it by at
tracting more homeseekers to en
gage in farming and more labor to
develop the a.T''jcu'tural interests on
a broader scale. What's the use
of springing a problem without of
fering a solution ? The solution for
our failure to increase our agricul
tural activities ia a greater supply
nf labor, and the question ax t
that is how to induce homesoekers
and farm laborers to come to the
State ami share iu its agricultural
prosperMy. The Agricultural De
partment at Washington i stressing
the fact that North Carolina is lead
ing in agricultural production. We
may net produce all the crops that
we ought to, but since the State's
aricultural supremacy has the "O.
K." of the government, wouldn't It
be a good idea to take the credit
to ourselves and use it to start a
bifjJ omvement of homeseekers to
North Carolina also Is doing veil
in manufacturing. The cotton mills
have taken labor away from aricul
tnral pursuits. Are we up to the
Ifwit of manufacturing because of
the lack of labor. If we build more
factories will' we not take more la
bor from the farms? We surely
will. Then, there is not only room
in North Carolina for farm labor bifc
for labor fn our cotton mills and
other industries. This emphasizes
the fact that our chief need is la
bor, while the great undeveloped op
jwirtunitles in the State are invit
5g to capital.
The things that we apparently
neglect in North Carolina are simp
ly opportunities for others, because
to do more than we are doing,
we haven't the labor and capital
There Is nothing n K for North
f'arolino to rfcrw its sore toe, but
there is everything In putting our
et foot foremot and yelling for
nolo because we are taxed to the
limit to develop the marvelous re
nounces of the State. The princi
pal thing the matter in the good
od North State 19 that its resources
ere too great for us to tackle by
ourselves. This show that North
Carolina ffl a great field for the
newcomer who has capital in the
ape of both money and industry.
The man who has money and the
van who will work never had bet

Fatea one day got after Mike, they would not let him be, and
so one fine morning he had the pleurisy. Then followed
couehs. sore throat and colds, and finally grippe and boils, and
sunburn inflammation then they got him in their coils. Mike
also got some bruises, corns, bunions, burns and sprains, he had
rheumatic symptoms and lumbago gave him pains. Neuralgia,
toothache, felons, crowded fast upon hia ills, tonsihtis and
pneumonia then knocked him off his sills. The doctor said
bronchitis, too, would come most any day, and it looked like
Mike might have a job of riding his own dray.- But just as
death began to dance and mourners all looked grim, a kindly
good o'd neighbor said: "Try Gowans stuff on him." And
so they took beloved Mike and rubbed him hard all day, and
