the line of prizes to be given to th
wheat growers of the County under the
diiectton of the Farmers Institute
Committee will meet in Graham next
) Saturday, the 22nd., to announce the
prizes, and with these prizes they
expect to serve two objects; 1st. to
stimulate the production of wheat-of
better wheat-of more acraege-and more
yield to the acre.

now bhipping flour to their customers

essentially a grain prodocing county and
should supply our mil*s. This county
should produce thousands of bushels of
No. 1 wheat where it is producing
hundreds of No. 2 of this profitable
cash crop-and it is a cash crop.
2nd. rhese prizes are also expected
to stimulate the interest and attendance
of the Farmers Institute and ever}
farmer, whether he learns anything oi
not, by discussing or hearing diacussel
the very topics he is interested in gets
an enthusiasm for this work that is
very essential to his success.
The speakers will be men and women
especially fited to discuss the topics
assigned them and they will have ideas
to put before you that are worth
listening to. There will be specialists
along different lines and will be glad to
answer any question you may want to
ask-have your question ready.
The business men of the county who
recognize that the foundation of their
success is the success of the farmer
should encourage these institutes in
every possible way.
And you, Mr. Farmer, if these insti
tutes are doing a good work, and they
are, should recognize that your duty

investigation at Spray, the cotton mills
and the property owned by them at

$2,240,(MX) whereas the assessment last
year was $900,000. The owners of the

increase in the assessment and appealed
to the Board of County Commissioners,
which now has the matter under advtse-

Vxrst, they say that Mr. Price has
put too high H valuation upon the mills
and their machinery. Mr. Price as
sessed the property at per spindle
for the spinning mills, which includes
the buildings, machinery and entire
equipment. They contend that is too
high. Mr. Price contends that it is
reasonable and fair. Mr. Price says
he investigated the matter thoroughly
before he made the assessment and
was advised by experts that the cost
of building and equipping a mil! was,
at the lowest figure, $18 per spindle,
and in making the assessment at $9
per spindle he had given the mills
every possible advantage they could
claim, both for depreciation and to
make it harmonize with the assessment
of other property.

Blonde or Brunette:*
Discussed in Munsey’s
From the beginning, mankind seems
to have had a marked preference for
blond things, a sense of security in
their presence, a feeling that their
blondness stood for a central beneficence
and innocence in their nature; whereas
darkness of hue has been similarly
suspected as standing for hidden and
possibly evil qualities and powers. It
is not, I thinic, too fantastic to see in
this man’s primitive fear of the dark,
and to trace the universal preference
for blond wigs in artificial periods to
his ancient worship of the sun.
The deities to which, in the terrify
ing mystery of his childhood, he has
turned for protection have usually
been blond, as have most of those
gracious personifications which em
bodied his notions of unseen beneficent
influences. Apollo in the south and
Balder in the north were both golden
haired gods; so was Dionysos, “the
sprit of fire anp dew, alive and leaping
in “a thousand vines,” Angels and
saviors of the world have usually been
imagined as blond. Man’s most
appealing symbol of divine love, the
Madonna, from Raphael to Rosetti,
comes to us in a halo of her own golden
hair. Athene is always “the gray
eyed.” Aurora, Flora, Pomona, and the
Graces are all blondes.—Munsey’s

which would tend to largely cheapen
the expenses of the manufacturer of
lumber.” Here, as Chairman Eller
says, the Democratic State execul;ive

Senator Simmons says; in connection
with free lumber machinery. And this
