SOMETHING FOR THE CHILDREN
Now that the school has closed and
the Daily Vacation Bible' School i*
over, what is there for the children
There was a day, of course, when
the boys would have chopped wood,
picked up jobs and worked enough to
keep out of mischief all the time, but
now the style has changed.
As to girls, they could learn to
wash, sew, cook, house clean, and do
a lot of things.
This would be a fine thing for them
and the town. -
TOO MUCH COTTON AND V\IN
TER WHEAT THIS YEAR
New Y'ork tells us that we are go
ing to raise too much winter wheat
this year but too little spring wheat,
which means biscuits will remain the
same sixe. ,
They also tell us it looks like too
much ctton again; with the big'stocks
on hand the prices may be expected
to be low.
These predictions, of course, come
from a good source, because city life
depends on country products. It is
safe to say that their information has
been carefully gathered; yet it does
not cheer the cotton farmer to tell

PREPARING FOR A BIG TOBACCO
The latent claim for territory by
the tobacco folks comes from Green
ville warehousemen; who say they will
run eight warehouses this year and
should sell a large percentage of the
tobacco from Hertford, Beaufort, Ber
tie, Martin Edgecombe, Green, Craven,
Lenoir, and all the surrounding coun
If the claim is true and the crop isj
good, Greenville will have big sales. |
Other markets might take the hint
and get right to brag some, too.
JOYCi: HAWLEY IS ONE HURL
Joyce Hawley, the beautiful 17-year
old Chicago girTr>«H«ed more noto
riety than honor, fame or money when
she stepped into a hath tub filled with
wine on the stage of a prominent
New York Theater at a Gearge Wash
ington Birthday celebration on Feb
tuary 22, and after bathing in the
.sparkling wine and while still in the
tub dished the contents of the tub out
to the morbid crowd of anti-prohibi
tionists until most of the company
reeled in drunlenne&s.
According to ancient history some
of the lustful ; kingfs became so de
praved that they held parties which
may have surpassed the famous Haw
ley bath tub stunt, which stands at
the head of American parties for deg
redation and shame.
Mis& Hawley is the one who is to
i' * I
be the most pitied, because she has
made the greatest sacrifice—that of
honor and character which can not be
regained. She has surrendered more
than the morbid bunch of men who
stood around and drank the cham
pagne and its drugs of sin.
Yet there is more hope for her than
for them. She was led on and vain
ly, though foolishly, plunged in. They
led her on and were in a large meas-'
ure responsible for the entire trouble.
The promise of Carroll, the proprie
tor of the theatre and host at the
party, of SI,OOO if she would help him
carry out plans for his wild party has
never been fulfilled.
Unfortunately, there are many
towns smaller than New York that
revel in drinking parties, with the
sign board pointing down the very.
same road that the Joyce Hawley wine
bath party traveled.

In 1925 we had a hail storm in Martin County June Bth, another
June 11th, and another June 25th There was $250,000.00 worth of
tobacco destroyed in the fields. Who knows but what we will have
hail storms this year; and in May instead of June? At any rate it
costs you no more to insure your tobacco the day you plant it than
it does a month later. The minute you are ready for hail insurance
