Halifax Having Her Troubles
Halifax county is having her troubles. Four deputy
sheriffs have beet 1 ) indicted there fur embezzlement,
and several of its bankers are up for various and sun-
dry short-comings. *
We have heard a long'ami loud wail about property
losses for the |»st several years but apj>arently we
lost more honor than we did money. *So many people
have shown themselves dishonest by stealing, em
bezzling, lying and cheating that some steps should
be taken to establish more honesty and truthfulness.
A special course should lie provided in the schools to
guard against the wrongs.
Tennessee's Politi&al Brawl
Tennessee is having trouble with her governor. The
legislature is after the high official for apparent mis
oonduct in helping a few friends rob the state and
everyone else they could get their hands on.
As is in most political brawls, it is now difficult to
see and understand what the end will bring. The
governor and his friends are shouting persecution
while the people are shouting robbery.
It is quite possible that. lx>th sides have some
grounds to support their arguments, but the affair
goes to prove that human nature has lost very little,
if any, of its hoggishness.
Bertie Makes a Wise Decision
A wise decision it was when Bertie county voted to
continue farm demonstration work there.
We have neglected for too long a time the im
portance of the farm and its proper management.
And now is the time to make it the most desirable,
the most profitable and most honorable of all pro
fessions or vocations in life.
One of the troubles now is that the town has out-
grown the county. It is time to say, country, you
must increase and town, you must decrease. 1
One of our greatest troubles results because it costs
the country too much to sustain the town or city.
Farmers Also Have Surplus of Advice
No class of |>eople has ever had more advice than
the farmers. Sometimes the advice was good, ""and
some times it was bad. Most of the time it has been
Naturally, everybody wants to see the farmers do
well, for when they succeed, business is good, and
when they lose out, things generally become critical.
However, we feel free to advise the farmer to work
for quality this year and not for pounds. We already
have 185,000,000 more pounds of tobacco on hand
than we had a year ago, and unless all signs fail, real
poor tobacco will not be worth curing this fall. Oir
the other hand, the farmer having a large per cent of
good tobacco stands some chance of making a little
Experience has taught us that by putting plenty
of dirt to the plants at every cultivation better re
sults are obtained. Side dressing with soda or o'her
high-powered amonia is dangerous as well as costly.
A light crop with good quality will undoubtedly
pay better, and every farmer shotftd work for quality.

The controversy between MassoKni and the Pope
may yet grow into much trouble. Without attempting
to enter the present controversy or to give any opinion
it does appear to us that Musaolini is going to get
himself and his country into serious trouble some day.
It is apparent that the Italian dictator regards
himself above religion of all classes, both Protestant
and Catholic. When any man thinks more highly of
himself than he does of the sanctity, both political
and religious, which has required a thousand of years
for the best minds and best hearts to establish, then
our civilization is in danger.
What this Country needs is for Will Rogers to tell
the government heads what to do. From appearances,
Mr. Rogers has more sense than any or perhaps all
all of them together. And then he has another valu
able quality that would go along way towards good
government and that quality is honesty.
The load is never heavy if all pull togehter. What
this country needs is a friendly pull by everybody,
rich, poor, and all the other classes.
If every community would practice this virtue, we
would not hear of hunger nor see rags. And then if
folks in every community would pull together they
would have happiness and peace.
When we study our condition and find that no less
than 98 per cent of our trouble comes to us on ac
count of our own shortcomings, it is hard to under
stand why we are not willing and anxious to pull to
gether, to make our church, our schools, our neigh
borhood, our towns, our hdmes, and ourselves better.
We are evidently wasting too much of our valu
able time trying to get the other fellow to do the right
thing and not enough hammering out our own selves
into useful, honorable, unselfish citizens.
Uncle Sam seems to be exactly like his 120,000,000
children. He is losing money, and so are we. Then
why should we criticize each other for doing exact
There are only about a dozen in the whole coun
try who have-not lost money. They are the tobacco
man, electric man, automobile man, chain store man,
motion picture man, and one or two others. If we
will stop trading with these big money makers for a
while, we will stop losing, too.
And Uncle Sam will have to stop so much wild
spending for war and other unnecessary things, too.
Pinchot would make a fine Democratic presiden
tial candidate. Anybody that the old-line Republi
cans fight as hard as they have Pinchot is bound to
be Democratic in spirit and evident regards men as
valuable as money.
Nearly seven million dollars was distributed a
mong former service men in North Carolina dur
ing the month of April. This was done through the
United States Veterans' Bureau located in Char
lotte. Of course, the same thing has been going
on all over the country and is still going on. Many
of those who got the money were need of it and
spent it for useful purposes. Some of it was wast
ed, of course, but anyway 1t all got into circula
tion and |terhaps helped to some extent to stimu
late business. It all goes to show, though, that war
is a mighty costly business.— Beaufort News.
The several thousand graduates who are being
turned out of the colleges and universities in our
State tliis week will, in many cases, find it hard to
find a place. The schools are full, and a thousand
of the teachers in them are to be turned out and be
added the young army who are anxious to find a
place to start life and make a living, only to find too
many lawyers, too many doctors, too many book
keepers, too many clerks, too many merchants, too
many people for the jobs. The result will finally be
that all those who are faithful, diligent, and willing
to do their best will soon find jobs and be absorbed
in the machine of progress. But those who stand and
wait for a call will doubtless stand a long time.
