the Senate and House accompanied

been placed at half mast immediately I
aiter tne npeaxer s death.
Mr. Wooten was 36 years of age.
He was educated at Wake Forest Col

trust and honor. He was trustee of
the University of North Carolina,

There are a few of us who can re
member what the old fashioned,
smoke house bacon, hams, shoulders
and sausage tasted like. It makes the
mouth water to think of it. And why
was the smoke house permitted to be
crowded aside to make way for inferi
or, high priced,, chemically treated,
machine prepared products of the
great packers' syndicate ? That there
is no good reason has been demons
trated by the farmers of Brooks coun
ty, Georgia. Up to a short time ago
the Brooks county farmers marketed
their hogs on the hoof, as is now done
uniformly throughout the country.
Eventually the fart that the pork they
sold for six to eight cents a pount!
came back to thera ii the : shape o'
hams and bacon tor w.icM thev ha I
t pay 20 to ?5 cents a'peond,. set
them to thinking; Then they re-established
the old time' smoke house,
slaughtered their ewn hogs and cur;
the meat. ,Not only are they obtain
ing better and cheaper food for them
selves, but a stronger market demand
for smoke house products has been
created than they can supply. These
hams and bacon have become famous
as far as they have reached.
The , Republican mix-up in this

LIBERTY HOME COMING AND
The people cf Liberty have prepared an enjoyable treat for all those
who enjoy literary and musical entertainment. Arrangement has been made
for three days and night.1) of lectures and conoei-ts to be held on the 11th,
12th, and 13th of March, by the Kadcliffe Attraction Co., of Washington, D. C.
There will also be special programs for. each day in the interest of ed
ucation, agriculture and social welfare. Dr. Kill, President of the A. & M.
College, Raleigh, N. C, will lecture on Friday, agricultural day of the fes
tival; while Dr. Sears, Dr. Frizzell, and others have been secured for the
delight of the audiences throughout the meeting.
On Saturday, educational day, Dr. E. W. Siks of Wake Forest College,
Wake Forest, N. C, will deliver an address, and all nearby, surrounding
schools are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to hear a most
helpful lecture. There will be a parade of the schools, and to the visiting
school having the best average attendance, a banner will be presented.
The town is thoroughly interested in the outlook for a splendid event
and a good time for all. The following lines were written by a resident
and shows the interest being taken by the citizens of the town:
Do you know there's lots of people
Sittin 'round in lots of towns, 3' '

Don't YOU be that kind of grouch,
Cause, THEY ain't no use on earth.
You just be a "BOOSTER ROOSTER"
Crow and BOOST for all you're worth.
When old Liberty needs BOOSTIN', boost kar,
Don't hold back and wait to see
If some other fellow's willin'
Sail right in, this country's free; '
No one has a mortgage on it;
It's just yours as much as his,
When old Liberty is shy on "BOOSTERS"
You get in the BOOSTER "BIZ."
If things don't just seem to suit you,
And the world seems kinder wiong.
What's the matter with your "BOOSTIN' "
Just to help the thing along?
Cause if things should stop agoin'
We'd be in a sorry plight;
You just keep that horn ablowin'
Boost her up with all your might.
If you know some fellow's failin's,
Just forget 'em, 'cause you know.
That same fellow has some good points,
Them's the ones you want to show.
"Cast your loaves out on the waters,
They'll come back" a saying true,
Mebbe, too, they'll come back buttered,
When some fellow BOOSTS for YOU.
