One thought emphasized at the
Sclma educational mating last Fri
day was, let everybody pull together
to carry the school election for John
ston County. The local needs of p.ny
particular school or town are to be
forgotten in the larger needs of the
county. The county is to be the unit.
We are all to forget self and our own
selfish plans in the great work be
fore us ? that of making the schools
of Johnston County better and more
efficient in every way than ever be
fore. That is the one great question
before us. Let's go before the peo
ple of the county with the one idea
of building up the county. And if we
all do our part to build up the coun
ty as a whole no part will suffer, but
each will grow and become strong as
the whole county grows and becomes

farmers are right ready to plant and
some few have already planted corn.

So far this has been the best and
most favorable spring for gardening
in several years past. The people of
this town and community have been
taking advantage of this fin'* Spring
weather and many have the tinest

people have Irish potatoes up, while
others are planting more potatoes i
than ever before .There are some peo
