GFTTING SOMETHING FOR NOTH
The idea of getting something
1 ? r nothing has a si roup hold oil
people generally. It is wrong
aqd should always be discour
isl. Children should be taught
ih'V r to accept anything until
full value lias been given in re
turn. This Idea of getting some
thing for nothing causes people
to beg, to insist on merchants
throwing in goods every time a
little trading is done with them;
il causes them to buy lottery
t i kets, to gamble, to deal in cot
ton futures and many other such
t hings. When you see a person
start out to get something for
) thing you t ay expect him to
give something for nothing. In
nine cases out of ten such a per
si >n will sooner or la ter get noth
i;:g for something. IJeware of!
i iy man p,nd every man who J
i Ats you too much for a dollar.'
' Honesty is the best policy")
a ul a straight forward course,
v ill in the end bring about the
I st results.
Two ideas prevail in appoint
ing road overseers. One is to,
i j -point some man who knows
I ? w to fix a road and keep it in
< der. The other is to appoint
r- ii" v., ley in who wants an
> i e or one whom the party in
I wer wants to honor or reward !
n some service. Sometimes a
road is "thrown on. a man for'
spite. A man must know what j
to do and be interested in the
work to make a good overseer. I
A ; man should at cept the place |
uidess he means to do his duty.
1 tetter work must be done on
some of the roads or the road I
Jaws will have to be changed.'
doubtless you have heard of the|
i.:un who had 110 cover to his
bouse. He said when it was not j
raining he did not need a cover
and when it was raining he could
n t put on one. Ho some over-,
-vers seem to think that in sum-1
the roads do not need work j
? nd that in winter they are so
bud they cannot be worked.

BUILD COTTON WAREHOUSES OR
We shall nut advise farmers to
hold cotton for higher prices. In
some cases it pays to hold it but
in most cases it does not pay.
Millions of dollars have been lost
by holding cotton as the tendency
of the market for twenty or thirty
years has Iteen generally down
ward. Hut some farmers will
hold no matter what the price is
and we advise them to build
warehouses or shelters for the
cotton unless they already have
good houses for it. On account
of the wet weather this year half
the cotton In some bales rotted
or was badly damaged when it
was not housed. It is useless to
work to make a crop and then
lose so much of it in this way.
The losses from damaged cotton
this year should be a lesson.
Ruild warehouses or good shelters
and you can keep your cotton in
perfect condition as long as you
choose to keep it.
The last Legislature passed
an act known as the Rural Libra
ry Law. This law gives to each
of six school districts in every
county a public school library
when the people of the district
shall have raised ten dollars.
The State gives ten dollars and
the county gives ten, making
thirty dollars in all. So far only
two districts in Johnston county
have raised the ten dollars.
What's the matter with our peo
ple? Don't they wantlibraries in
their schools? Four other dis
tricts in this county are going to
get libraries. Is yours one of the
four? If not, why not? Remem
ber only four can get the advant
ages of this act and the first four
to make application by sending
the County Superitendent ten
dollars will be the successful ones.
