North Carolina, Tuesday, January 24th, 1922 BIG QUESTION NO W IS WHAT TO PLANT I Remember first the old ruie about something to eat, it has never noen I found untrue and leaves us independ ! ent. Then comes the crops we are j best able to handle. So far a.; what j the price of any particular crop will be this fall, no one knows. It is'sel | dom that all of our leading moneV | crops, cotton, peanuts and tobacco, all sell well the same season. Yet there are fow years that any one of them brings a fair price. We generally try to look well to the law of supply and demand which should be the base governing price but that theory has been largely set at naught by the experience in tin last cotton crop, a shortage of 5, 00(i,(lii(l bales in the face of a growing consumption and yet cotton prices fail |ed to respond. The rapid spread of [the boll weevil did not affect them, even though the nr-rthern limits have been reached and we have no new territory-to open to cotton" after the weevil has gotten full possession. Thi peanut supply seem to be larger and though the lust crop showed a alrge yield in bags the quality was pool and trashy. The peanut grows in a bundatice in the boll weevile territon and can take the place of cotton. I . this should occur the peanut supph will be large and prices will not Iwv i much chance to IK 1 high. However, the good grades of peanuts will hard ly he grown in that territory and oui • own fui'mi'i'.s who raise real pcaiini and take care of them, a thing whirl has almost stopped, may expect a fail price for them. Tobacco frequently gets us in debt and often gets us out of debt. It a substance of no intrinsic hut of "nigh commercial value and is valu able because people want it and not because they need it. There is some uncertainty about the' supply of to batco miw on hand. It is quite tru " that the production of tobacco ha been very largely increased wilhin tin last few years aifd it is also true that the Consumption has also increased but the public does hot know the I"'" portions nor do they know the need for this year, consequently the I'ai mer does not know just how to pro ceed. Still there is one lesson tin farmer- should have learned by thi time ami that is that' a small goo, crop is always better than a I'liV' poor crop. Then why take chance by spending too much in laboi m expenses on a large acreage who feWer aereii .with more utteniiuii-xv.uiih . produce more income. From all in "dications there is no special ivasoi, for farmers to j>o tobacco era> am plant enough to .seed price below tin ci, t nl production. HI: PLEASANT TO % THE STKANCER your gates.

DECIDING WHERE TO BUY (From Human Interest Editorials) The success of a bu > ru-o* uecevls on itj wbility to a'l'il);* the uieoUU oiv.i.ons of the pakl't a;, dti* de ci.i "e how oeiole decide •« to wlm* t/.,*jr shall buy goods Tim inerduints who read tho public mind most ac curately gets the business. When one find that ho needs some- 11 tiling, the question comes up where tlmt article should be bought. From some source back in the mind the sug gestion comes that such and such a place would bo a good store to visit for that purpose. Whence comes that suggestion ? In the majority of cases, it Is cre ated by tho store that has made the most effort to impress its reputation on the public mind. People remem ber the things they hear about con stantly, and they forget other things that are rarely called to their atten tion. /rhc advertised store conforms to the laws of psychology, by con stantly calling public attention to its enterprises, its goods, its methods, its prices and the advantages of trading with it. Consequently the inner con sciousness, when asked what or where a person should'huy, is apt to respond by suggesting certain advertised good. It i of course true that while a 1 stoie by advertising can always draw in a lot of now trade, it can't keep it unless it really , does give good val ues. But advertising helps a store do that, notably in these two ways: I. Advertising encourages mer , chants to handle big lots when such i are offered to thorn at low figures, i They know that by appealing to the ■ public by-advertising, they can swing tlieso big- lots and turn them into money in a short time. Thus baying in a large way and taking advantages of special opportunities, they are able to' offer special vulueh. A 2. Advertising increases volume of trade, thus reducing the operating and overhead expense per article, mak ing it possible to cut prices to the public. The advertised store buys and operateh at low figures, and c§n thus make low prices. •LEST WE FORGET" Don't forget to send a contribution to Mrs. Clayton Moore for th* Wilson Peace Fund.
