LAST YEAR A REAL
TEST FOR BUSINESS
In comparing local conditions withi
those o fone year, ago w efind things!
decidodly better. Last year wa sa real
tester. It divided the honest from the
dishonest, it showed up the fellows
who will not stand to their word, it
made many men run and hide behind
the skills of their wives and though
it is a fact that a woman's skirts aio
scanty yet they are quite large enoug'i
to hide a fellow of that size. It lii.-
shon» to the world those men who
nover trust anybody,; always unea»; ■
and afraid and never see things ii
thoir right light. Hut on the othei
hand it has proven that there are SOIM
knights in our land. It has shown 11
the people who are willing to stun
up and help carry,the load, to give
their brother man an opportunity to
pull up the hill and get on his feet
The l*»st index of business is the
banks and while they have not had u
money-making year they must be giv
en the credit for saving the day. They
Have made it possible for things to
move forward and they are now ii
a much better form than a year ago.,
I'he (tanks are making a, good show
ing but there are a lot of people hold
ing their money out, if they would
come across conditions would he help
ed, in n largo way. One of the prin
ciple reasons why things aio tight i.
because the money of the country ii
locked"up anil only u little of it is
in circulation. We should all help
things along by putting our mono;
where it wil get to work and only pies

CAPT. RHEM GOES
TO PRISON FARM
After thirty-six years in the ser
vice of the State prison, first as a
guard and Inst as superintendent of
the prison farm four miles west of
Kaleigh, Capt. C, N. Christian was
notified yesterday that after Febru
ary 1 the prison farm would be placed
in the hands of Capt. J. C. Rhem.
Election of Captain Rhem to the
superintendent's place pccurred on
Wednesday at the regular session of
the board of directors of the State
prison. It was understood here yes
terday that Captain Christian would
be offered the plce which Captain
Rhem will leave to come to Raleigh,
superintendent of the convict gangs
at work on the Williamston bridge,
but no such offer had been made to
him last night.
Hoth Captain Rhem and Captain
Christian are veterans in the employ
of the State prison. The former has
been in the service for 32 years, he
having gone to the Halifax count)
farm In 1890. Later when the farm
developed to such tremendous size,
it was divided, and each made super
intendent of one half of the 7,mm
acres under cultivation.
No charges of any sort were made
against Captain Christian, it wa un
derstood. Members of the board of
directors felt that it was due Captain
Rhem that he be given the farm lieu
for a term, in that lie had been left
without such a place when the llali
fax farms were sold two years ago.
At that tim ehe expressed a willing
tiexs to go anywhere he was sent and
the choice fell on him to g-o to Wil
liainston, and Captain Christian to
come to Rrtleigh.
Work on the big bridge over tin
Roanoke river at Williamston whore
about 300 convicts are engaged, will
be completed by June of this year,
and that camp will be abandoned. It
is likely that the prisoners there wil
be. scattei*»d into smaller groups in
various sections of the State. —Ral-

The above will be read with inter

('apt. and Mrs. J. C. Rhem have been
in our town, they have made man.*
warm friends and their departure on
February Ist will be received with re

North Carolina's Greatness
Described in New Booklet
"I'M FOR ANYTHING
FOR FARMERS, BUT-"
"Yes, I'm for anything lor the far
mer, but"—! This remark has been
made hundred of times by business
men in North Carolina on bein gagked
their opinion of Cooperative Market
ing. They were and are on the fence.
Waiting to get in on the band wagon
and ride in the parade put or by the
"Yea, Pm for it, Bl.'T"—! But
what? Are thty afraid that by en
dorsing Cooperative Marketing they
will hurt their business" Are they
afraid that it will injure tho farmor?
NO! For they know it will i.et hurt
their business, and, as u rule, they
cure nothing for th •farmt; except to
be sure and get theirs.
Now Listen! Are they afraid the.t
by endorsing Cooperative Matketing
they will hurt their pocket bocks ? Now
we are getting to the heart of the
question. We know that for years the
time merchant and all manner of bus
iness men have reaped a rich harvest
from the fanner, not ony oy exces
sive interest rates, but by many and
various channels known only to them
selves. We also know that all lines
of business as well as professions are
linked together in their various or
ganizations, and it is thorougny un
dorstood that they get together for
mutual benefit. So is it any wonder
that whan any idea is advanced that
will take awy their right ,s they think,
to rob the fanner, they say, "VMS.
I'm for it, —HIT"—!

it down in your book that the party |

The State cf Agrlcultuie has re

with sketches of the wonderful oppor

nough of our Qwn state's greatnes.
to our children, yet it may be that
•very sixth and seventh grade U»
and girl*in our state schools can tell
I you that our State is five huudreU
and three and a fourth nults leng
from East to West and that the sun
rises thirty-six minutes earlier ia the
eajtern end than in the western, that
it id one hundred and eighty-seven
a half miles wide from north to south,
that it contain* fifty-two thousand,
two hundtvd and eighty-six square
miles, thirty six hundred and twenty
of which are water, including the
beautiful rounds and lakes. Perhaps
they k#ow enough about the magni

you that if it" could be swung on a
pivot at its western end it would
sweep nil of the states of Alabama,
Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, In
diana and Ohio off the nvap, would
knock New Orleans into the Gulf ei
Mexico and Chicago into Lake Micki
«an and take enough of Missouri to
push St. Louis a hundred miles fur
ther west. When you put the Old
North State hack in its place and put
j our pivot in the eastern part of the
state, you could knock Boston into
the Boston Harbor and sweep Jack

None of the above reason* how
ever are of vital importance nor do
they .serve as reason why we should
want to live in North Carolina or
why others should want to make tin >
homes hen*. There ure better causes.
Splendid climate, fine seasons, health,
Anglo-Saxon purity (first of all the
States) great natural resources, for
ests (lias more trees than any state
in the Union), great mineral wealth.
Agriculture is the biggest asset and
will be for many ages to come as we
have broad expanses of fertile lai.

kets of the country; advantages that
cannot be easily overcome. arc

Everything mentioned hai b:'er given

Whnt have we our wives done?
Many things and are at present doinif
more for ourselves and for the world
than ever before in our history but
thi'ie are a few things we have had
(no much of and while it M disagree
'able to mention them it i.i perhaps
more honorable to be frank. Sutue of
the things we would mention are as
follows: eg-otism, rather a felling of
self-satisfaction, the bell«? that we
are a fraction better and wiser than
others. Another thing we wold men
tion is laziness. God hai done so
much for us that we have not had to
push forward, hence we have gotten
behind. Kgotiam and laziness always
breed ignorance, man's mogi formid
able foe. When we lay aside rtme
of our self-satisfaction, get in the
"swim" and go down after things we
will truly be a great State.
What upplies to North Carolina can
be said of Martin county. We ate
far above the average of tho one hun

vantages are concerned and we may
expect to see ourselves well to the

citizenship, before many year*. Lit
