Eastern North Carolina is begin
ning to command something of the
attention which its proven poten
tialities are due. "The logic of the
situation here," abserves The Wil
mington Star in this connection,
"is an incomparable climate and a
region of vast productiveness while
the nearness of the region to a
great consuming population in the
North is an assurance that land
values in eastern North Carolina are
not only permanent but inevitably
will increase as the possibilities of
this part of the couutry become
known and undergo the develop
ment of which it is capable/'
Within 24 hours of the great North
ern markets by refrigerator train,
eastern North Carolina truckers of
Floiida, Texas and other more
southerly sections an advantage for
which their earlier season does not
by any means compensate. At the
same time the comparative earliu:ss
of its season operates as a decided
advantage over coast truckers
farther north, whose proximity to
market since the eastern North
Carolina trucker is near enough,
constitutes no sufficient offset. The
Star notes gratification the
fact that not only have better pro
ductive methods increased the corn
yield, giving farmers a surplus for
sale where they formerly bought
from the West, but that shipping
green corn or "roasting-ears" to
Northern markets has sprung up as
a new industry. "This season,"
says our observant contemporary.
' immense quantities'of green corn
have been shipped to the Northern
markets by farmers who a few
years ago did not dream that they
could do a good business growing
corn for the table." On Tuly 14th
over two thousand crates of table
corn were shipped fiom Clinton,
Sampson county— showing, we note
with pleasure, that work did not

Probably the sounds and sandbanks
which have been often execrated
for their effect upon navigability
make some leturn by rendering this
section especial'y suitable for
trucker's purposes. At any.rate,
climate here is mild out of relation

Advice For Young Men
Remember, my son, you have to
work. Whether you haudle a pick
or a pen, a wheelbarrow or a set of
books, dig ditches or edit a piper,
ring an auction bell or writ* 1 funny
things, you must work. If you
look around you w'll see the men
who work the hardest.
Don't be afraid oft killing your
self with overwork It is beyond
your power to do that on the sunny
side of thirty. They die some- j
times, but it is because #hey quit!
work at 6 p. m. and don'tget home I
till 2am It is the interval that
kills, my son. The work gives you
an appetite for your meal-; it lends
solidity to your slumbers; it gives
you a perfect and grateful apprecia
tion of a holiday.
There are young men who do not
work, but the wot Id is not proud
of them It does not know their
names even; it simply sptaks of
them as "old So-and-So's bovs."
Nobody likes them; the great, busy
world doesn't know that they are
there. So find out what you want
to be and do, and takeoff 3 our coat
and make a dust in the world
The busier you are the less harm
you will be apt to get into, the
sweeter will be your sleep, the
brighter and happier your holidays
and the better satisfied the world
will be with you.—Bob BtirdeUe.

AN OLD BIDDY

Probably a Warning to
"There is nothing new under the
sun" so they say, and yet strange
things happen every day, the like
of which has not been seen before.
Nature is full of surprises and there
are none to perfectly interpret her
mysteries One reads of the spec
tacular and curious happenings,
and often it comes under the eye.
To a plain old hen belongs the
honor of furnishing the suspicious
of this community with a strange
■sight. Tuesday morning, this in
dustrious chick, belonging to
Stephen' Latham, a colored man
living in West Williamston, de
posited qji egg in the nest, as usu
al. Latham's wife later took the
egg out, and behold; it w>s an
Kaster beauty in July! The hen
not belonging to that branch of
the church which celebrates Kaster,
was not up on the church calendar
and so had made the blunder in
dates. The surfaces of the egg
: was painted in a very dark blue
shade, and the figure thereon rep
resented a man in armor—perhaps
a knight of ye olden times. In his
hand was a spear which he seemed
about to cast at something. That
is one version of the the egg story.
Another is that some midnight
marauder went after that old hen
and so badly scared her that the
form of the thief was photographed
lon the shell. At any rate, it is a
curiousity and well worth seeing.

been alarmed so much since Hal

doubt it is a warning from the un

such an enormous appetite for
chicken. If every hen has the ar

get a picture of thieves, then there
is work for the police, and the
