Bring a Corps of Expert
In no line of industury bus prog
ress been so marked as in that of
agriculture. The South is the
greatest crop raising section in the
known world, and to the South
'are all eyes turned.
Southern Congressmen following
the method introduced by Congress
man Hobson, have regulaily held
institutes in all parts of their re
spective districts. These institutes
1 have made enthusiastic farmers and
the result is wonderful.
Representative John H. Small,
of the first district, is thoroughly
alive to the needs of his people.
The institute for Martin county
will be held ou Tuesday, August
2ud, at the Court House in Wil
liamston. This meeting promises
to be a most Interesting one and
the farmers are asked to spend the
day learning from teachers who are
prepared to instruct in every phase
of farm lite. If Martin county •
forges ahead, the lands must be cul
tivated by men who know best how
to produce good crops. These men
must learn the science of farming
and the institutes are the Govern
ment's schools. Can any farmer
afford to neglect this importaut' in

Alack aud alas'
And Bill 011 the flat
Of his back in the grass
Sounding the depths
Of the opaliue sky
1 And watching the clouds
Floating dreamily by.
I Last year,

■ Can dream early or late,
Suore as it pleases
t And snooze as it will —
Of August it may first be said,
its name is from Augustus, whom
men have likened unto Ted, perhaps
without injustice. He made the
' world go round about as many
■ times a minute, and the news was
always dull without the great Au
: gustus in it.
He had his Ananias Club for liars
aud for fakers, and he loved to sail
his little tub among the Roman
t breakers. He counted peace a sort
I of plague, and never did pursue it,
at The Hague, and
you couldn't beat him to it.
) s •
He preached about the same old
things that Teddy has been preach
| ing, and most of Rome's awaken
ings resulted from his teaching
He battled hotly for the right, and
1 valiantly imbued it, and the stork
! could not attempt to lijthtbut what
he up and shooed it.
1 There was, however, one affair
to tell which is to tattle, and that
was where this Roman bear was
coming in from battle. He had,
of course, put everything opposing
him to slumber, and Rome awaited
him to sing some laudatory number.
But here the parallel desists. Au
gustus said them, No, sir! and when
he entered with his lists it might
have been the grocer for all the
greeting that he got from that ad
miring chorus, the which desire, of
course, was not a bit like Theodorus.
But howsoever, when be died the
month that loves to gull us was
being written far and wide the sea
son of Sextilus. They wanted to
commemorate the hot time he pre
sented the nation with, at any rate,
so August was invented.
The dog days will resume again,
Antl the man who voted water
With the weather down to eight or
Below will grow the hotter.

The season hot and stewing,
And nothing but a choice between •
Pink lemonade and bluing.

It's very easy to forget there's
such a thing as S*mu?er, or such a
quantity as sweat, what time the '

Bear Grass vs Tammany Tigers
On the local diamond last Fri
day Bear GrafS defeated tire Tam
many Tigers bail team, in a ten in
niug game by the score of 14 to 15.
The heavy scoring by each taam
was on account of their unfamili
arity of the diamond, the teams be
ing accustomed to a faster grouud.
The reversible battery of Griffiu and
Griffin wete the features of the
Bear Grass team, while Gurganus
at short and the Sandv Point catch
er for the Tigers are worthy of
particular mention, and it is to be
expected that these players * will
eventually play major league ball.
The Tigers have several games
scheduled for the coming month
and can. promise thrilling
games. This team is supported by
private contribution and the ad
mission is free.

Wiillamston Playing Good Ball
Last week the Williamston team
' defeated Ahoskie in a fast game on
' the Ahoskie diamond. They also
I pi jve 1 Aulander, losing one game
, to them, while the second game
went r r innings without either
team scoring. Wednesday they
1 defeated Elm City on the Williams*
, ton diamond by a score of 5 to 3.
Ward was on the mound for the
home team, allowing only one clean
hit Jordan at the receiving end
made it difficult for the vis.tors to
' steal bases. The game was char
acterized by the usual heavy hitting
of the home team, they retired
pitcher Winstead of the visiting
team from the box in short order.
He was replaced by Fountain of
Tarboro, who could not stop the
hitting. Elm City played good j
ball and gave both pitchers good j
support, but were outclassed. The j
attendance was good, but as the
park is not inclosed the gate re
ceipts were small. We will main
tain a winning team for the rest of
the season and will strengthen tins
week by the addition of Stlbbs,
Martin and a speedy left hander for !
a running mate for our spit ball
artist, Ward, whose work you have
seen. We are anxious to play
some of the remaining games on the
home diamond, with the proper en
couragement, or otherwise the team 1
will play away from home for the
rest of season.—"Dope"
