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 labor. 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. 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 ter opportunities ia the world than in North Carolina at this time.--The Morning Star.

Down about old Boston town, in the district of Back Bay, Mike Mulligan had his being, and also ran a dray. But the 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 Mike sinRs Gowans praises now, and Mike still drives his dray. Gowans is Sold and Guaranteed by all Druggists.
