Much has been written about the
Democratic nominee (or president, and
so far as. we have seen, whether in
Democratic, Republican or independent
press, there has been nothing
brought out that would reflect upon
bis ability or integrity. He has been
given a wide publicity since his nomination,
and his life's history from
early boyhood days down to the present
has been laid before the public,
some of it in bare facts, and others
considerably embellished. All of his
old school-mates, the people in his
native town, others Who have been
connected with him in public life,
his friends and even his servants have
been interviewed and their words of
praise, genorally, broadcast to the
And C. W. Bryan, the running mate
of Davis, is also getting his share of
_ publicity. He has several grounds for
that publicity. In the first place, he
has done a few things himself in life;
second, he is a real man, one who appeals'
to the masses; another is that
he is a brothfr of W. J. Bryan, howover,
he \viTi live down the latter.
Bryajn (C.-'W.) went to a baseball
t game the other day when ho stopped
off in' Washington, and that made S
hit with the baseball fans. Then he
was seen eating a hot-dog in front
of a hot-dog stand a few days ago,
and that told all of us that he is a
~fbgula? fellow. But, there are a lot
of othor things about him. The Baltimore
Evening Sun, which has no
love for William Jennings Bryan, as
a statesman, and was inclined to have
a small opinion of C. W., Investigated
tho latter's record, and among other
things, found the following: v
"Since ne nas been governor of Nebraska
Brother Charlie has reduced
taxes 13 percent. .
"During the same period he has
reduced the number of jobholders on
the Nebraska pay roll from 610 ^o
272, a net reduction of 338. Allowing
five feet six inches as the average
height of a jobholder, this reduces the
line of Nebraska jobholders from
3,355 feet to 1,496 feet, a decrease
of 1,859 feet. 1
"There are two accomplishments of
no mean order. We do not claim that
they remove from Mr. Bryan the
curse of his relationship. Nor do we
claim that they show him to be a fore-1
ordained leader of men. But if it be
true that a man should be judged by
his deeds rather than by his words,
then Brother Charlie gets a passing

paper writers have been doing a lit-i

and, savs^ the Asheville Citizen, ac-|
cording to these writers, Charles W.'sl
political acumen brought to William1
J. the presidential nomination in 1900
and that of 1908. From 1896, they!
say, until William J. gave up Lincoln
as his home, his younger brother was
his "devoted follower and political

the younger brother "sought no
Credit and was always content to

good of the cause and the family of
Some of this may be exaggerated
says the Citizen but there is no doubt
of much of its truth. And the picture
it draws of Charles W. Bryan Is one
that appeals raightly to the man
in the stTeet. The younger and unknown
brother laboring. at all hours
for the famous mdn piling up money

i with shrewd advice making his own

that grips the imagination and captures
affection. Hearing it, men are
certain jt<vsay: "Here "Is greatness."
| That Charles W. has much qbility
is proved by his history after William
J. left Lincoln. It was then that the
younger brother became mayor of
the city, and then governor of the
state, making a commanding record
as champion of the poor man against
[the bullying of the rich. William J.
will no doubt be the first to explain
to the country that what Charles W.
did for him is prophecy of what fine
service the younger brother will bring
to national afairs. ?Durham Herald.
MAKES GOOD RECORD IN
GROWING RED CLOVER.
Lenoir, N. C. July 21.?That red
clover oan be grown with success as
a hay and soil improving crop in
Caldwell county has been successfulj
ly demonstrated by H. P. Robinson,
a farmer of near Granite Falls reports
D. M. Roberts farm demonstra|
tion agent for the State College Extension
Mr. Robinson has a field of tWentytwo
acres to which he planted corn
followed by crimson clover in the fall.
The crimson clover was turned under
and in the" early spring of 1923, Mr.
Robinson sowed the field to a mixture
of spring oats and red clover. Just
as, soon as the oats would do for hay,
the field was mowed and an average
of two tons of good hay, half of
which was red clover, was secured
per acre. Later in the summer, he
harvested another cutting of hay at
the rate of one ton per acre making
a total of three tons per acre for
In addition to the hay secured, a
third growth covered the land and
made a splendid winter cover crop.
Then in early June of this year, Mr.
Robinson clipped the field again with
the 22 acres again yielding hay at
the rate of two tons per acre. At this
time it looks if there would be a second
crop of fine growth to be secur
| ed for hay. From this one sowing
| Mr. Robinson has already secured five
[ tons-of hay per acre and some of the
| best farmers from over in Catawba
County who have seen the field stated
that they had never seen its equal.
According: to County Agent Roberts,
| it is expected that by the time the
i season fs over this year, a record in
hay production from this field will
, have been made that will compare
most favorably with any in the State.
"Good farming methods, thorough
, land preparation, arid proper harvesting
were largely responsible for the
success attending Mr. Robinson efforts,"
says Mr. Roberts.

PRIMARY TOPIC?Jesus Refuses to
JUNIOR TOPIC?Jesus Conquers the
INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC?Jesus
Shows Us How to Overcome
YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC
?Victory Over the Tempter.
I. It* Purpose (V. 1).
The Holy Spirit led Him Into the
wilderness with the specific purpose
that He there meet and overcome the
one whose works He came to destroy
(Heb. 2:14). Uls temptation was
not a preparation for His wortef as
usually thought, but rather the^grfenlng
of the dreadful conflict -betweeaClirist
and Satan, which was to issne In Satan's
defeat It was not to lest Jesus
to find out as to whether He would
stand fast?to see whether He would
sin. The eternal purpose of God as t?
redemption absolutely could not fall.
It was rather to exhibit Him as an object
upon which faith might rest, to
show that a union between God and
man had been effected which would
Insure man's reconciliation.
II. The Conflict (vv. 2-11).
1. The Combatants (t. 1).
(1) Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, ths
Divine Man, Is now entering upon His
mediatorial work. He wont Immediately
from the place of anointing and
heavenly recognition as the Son of
God to meet the arch-enemy of the
(2) The Devil. He was a real person
and, while always filled with cunning
and malice. In thlg case the Initiative
was taken by the Ixird. He was
dragged Into the presence of Jesus
Christ and forced Into the straggle.
2. Ti e Battle Ground (*. 1). It was
In the wilderness of J mien. The first
man Was tempted In a garden with the
most pleasant surroundings and failed.
The second man was telnpted In a
barren wilderness, surrounded by wild
beasts, and gloriously triumphed.
3. The Method of Attack (vv. 2-10).
Since as our Redeemer Christ sustained
a threefold relationship, the Son
of Man, Son of God and as Messiah,
each one was made a ground of attack.
(1) As Son of Man (vv. 2, 3). This
was a test of the reality of His humanity.
To demonstrate whether the humanity
which He obtained through the
virgin birth was real, the appeal was
made to the Instinct of hunger. Hunger
Is not the result of sin. While the
appetite Is not sinful, to have satisfied
It In a wrong way would have been
(2) Son of God (w. B, 6). This was
a lest as to whether the personality
which had come from heaven and
taken upon Itself humanity was divine.
The Devil quoted from a Messianic
God's care. God does care for His
own, but to neglect common preonu
tlon?to do the uncalled for thingjust
to put God's promise to a test Is
sin and death. Satan tempts men today
to do the spectacular things In order
to get publicity, to gain the ears
of the people.
(3) As Messiah (vv. 8, 9). Christ's
mission as the Messiah was to recover
this world from the Devil. The Devil
offered to surrender td Him on the
simple condition that He would adopt
his method, thus obviating the neces
slty of the cross. T?he kingdoms were
really Christ's and FT? knew that they
would ultimately become His. The Inducement
was to get Immediate posses
slon without the sufferings of the
4. The Defense (w. 4, 7, 10). Christ
met the enemy each time and repulsed
his attack with the Word of God. Eact
time He sold, "It Is written" and
quoted from Deuteronomy, the boob
which the higher critics would dls
credit. Christ had enough confidence
In it to use it In this, the most cmclal
hour of the world's history.
3. The Issue (v. 11).
(1) Satan vanquished. The enemy
was completelys-cuted. The strong
man was so bound that the spoiling ol
his house was possible.
(2) Angels came and mlnlsterec
nnto Hlra. This event was so notable
that these glorious beings were sent
from heaven to give It recognition and
to minister unto the triumphant King

PROFIT ON CORN.
Raleigh* N. C. July 21*?Corn raised
on land that will produce forty
bushels per acre will cost around 70
cents per bushel to produce charging
for man labor at 30 cents per hour.
If sold as corn on tho farm at $1.00
per bushel there. is a profit of 30
cents per bushel, or $12.00 per acre.
When this corn is properly supplemented
with balancing feeds and fed
to hogs; the hogs sold at $8.25 per
100 pounds, delivered at the farm, and
the cost of the supplemental feeds
then deducted, the returns for com
will be about $1.30 per bushel. The
profit per bushel is thereby doubled,
and the plant food value of about 15
cents per bushel, will remain on the
farm, thus paying handsomely for the
trouble of selling the com in this
way. " .
When fed to hogs we have a per
acre profit of $24.00 and a return per
hour for human labor devoted to producing
the corn of slightly over $1.00
or $10.00 per ten-hour day. This is
one of the reasons why properly fed
live stock is more profitable than the
customary method of figuring shows
