Subscription: >1.00 TO THE FISHER MEN OF EASTERN NONTH CAROLINA The 'Fisheries Oommi<»un Board, at its last meeting held oo the Std o( July, adopted the following rule: “It ahaii be unlawlul to use any net, aeine or similar appliance for cafechinN fish in the waters of Noftfa Carolina, having a bar of leas than one and one hall (H) Inches or a mesh of less than three (8) inches before tarring. This rule shall go into eflect 8ep ' tember 1st, 1919." (Since the organisation of this Board, the greatest problem that has confronted it, has been to adopt some measure which would prevent the destruction of small •ah. At a meeting soon after its organisation, the Board passed a rule that uo oet or seine oi leas . thaalft inches bar or 8 inches mesh should be used in the. wa ters of the State. Tnis rule met with opposition, and, in defer ence to the views of many of the iabermen, the Bov id modified it, reducing the site of mesh and pscacribed the minimum sixe of ■ fish that could be bought and sold, in the hope that this might, is some way at least, remedy the trouble, instead of accomplish ing this purpose, it has been, to a great extent, a failure and small fish are stiU being destroyed in great oumbvra. The continuance of this means that the children and grandchildren of the present generation will be deprived of a Uvlihood (or themselves as the iah In the waters will soon be de picted. Tbe only other methods of preservation of the fish is to cull them as they are taken from the waters and are still altuc, or to use a larger mesh. Tbe fisb eimeo claim that it is impossible to cull the fish with any degree of satisfaction as they are taken from the nets, and hence the Board haa been forced to the conclusion that it is necessary to (Continued on last page) Five Canning Rules • i.

M., on the lawn just in front of the Presbyterian church. This party will be under the auspices of the Ladies' Mis sionary Society of the church. The object of the party is to de fray a small debt which is still testing on the Sunday school room which has just been added to the church building. Bcfresli ments of different kinds will be served. On Sunday evening, August 0, there were forty three children, with open minds and hearts as sembled in the new Sunday school room, there to receive from their faithful teachers the teaching of our Saviour. When we remember the words of our Saviour when be said “Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the king lorn of God," we know that if He had been there io bodily form He would have been delighted to have taught these little ones. The same evening the total num ber in Sunday school was sixty six and had it not been for the new annex we could not have ac commodated them At present, in the world-wide conflict between earthly powers, the ladies* of our town and coun try are doing s great work for suffering humanity through the Red Croas Society. There are many ladies of our town who, on account of the laek of time, can not do so much as others (or the National Bed Cross work but through their Missionary Society and the teaching of these little ones are doing a far greater work ior a far greater Red Cross in a tar greater conflict. This confliot is between the forces of evil and the forces of good contending for the souls of the boys and girls and men and women of our com munity. This Bed Croas has been made red by the blood of a dying Saviour who came to be crucified in order that we might win In this conflict. we extend a cordial invitation to all who will to come and do what they can in helping these faithful ladies in providing more roo,m in which these children can be led to higher and nobler lives. What shall it profit a town if it gaip the whole world and lose its own boys and girls? G. L. WHITELY, Aug 18, 1917.
