C., u second cUm mall mailer. THURSDAY, FEB. 5, 1913. No man ever helped himself knocking other people down in character and business. Il is the boy who attends strict ly to business and makes his em ployer's interests his own, who will make his mark as a business man. The woman who has a home and keeps it well, has no narrow sphere in life. In the home is the hope of the nation and the church. ^ Don't grumble. The moftun fortunate class of people living upon this green earth are the grumblers. They rob home of its joy, society of its dues, and themselves of the be& things of life. Our town is one of the cleaned in the &ate, yet we want to beat the record and there is Aill room for improvements. Get busy, peo ple and clean up any little rub bish that may be around your home. Would it not be well lor par ents who have children attend ing school in the town to take in tercel enough in the schools and their children to visit the schools at lea& one time during the term. At this time of ihe year peo p'e are naturally discussing in their minds the question, where shall we buy our goods? As our answer to this important prob lem we refer them to tbe adver tising columns of this issue. There is many a young man proud of his mother, who would Arike into the du& any man who would insult her, yet who, by his own evil doings and h&d habits is sharpening a dagger to plunge through that mother's heart You can begin to teach a child to take pride in his or her home town very early in life.

Wendell Times. Make Cotton and Tobacco. The experience of years has taught those who have tried it the folly of putting all their eggs in one basket, of placing full de pendence upon any one thing which is susceptib'.e of change, for when the smash comes and the change comes to pas3 they are undone. At a meeting lad week of the Sand Hills Farmers Association held at Wc& End, in Moore County, Mr. Bradford Knapp, of the United States larm demon oration work, was one of the speakers. The subjed of tobac co as a crop was under discus sion and in his address to the farmers Mr. Knapp gave them the sound advice that the mem bers of the association should not depends <00 much upon to bacco or any crop, and empha sized that the principal business of the farmer is the improve ment of the soil, diversity of crops, cultivation of men and in stitutions, and attention to anni mal husbandry. Tharfarmer who depends up on one crop is not a wise farmer. He should consider what has happened to the farmer who de pended solely upon cotton, sole ly upon tobacco. When price3 went down there wis smash for these baskets of eggs. That farmer is wise who keeps his land in fine condition and who diversifies his crops. Tobacco is bringing good prices now, but who cad tell what may happen? Mr. Knapp is doing a real service when he warns the farmers azainft depending upon one crop ?News & Observer. Font's Experiment. The event of interest in the in dustrial-world the pafi week was tbe-wuwHiued revolution in the bushwas methods of the Ford Motor Company. This eoastti ed in raising the minhnum rates of waxes from $2.34 a day to $5 a day, in dividing a gift of $10, 000.000 among its employes, the taking on of a large number of e. tra workmen .and the division of its work hours each, making a continous run of the fa<5tory. Of course Ford gets a tremen dous amount of advertising out of this, and in the final analysis he is expe&ed to make $45,090, 000 in profits where he has been making $20,000,000. This he witl be able to do by the never shut-down plan through ' the eight-hour shift and the increase, in ?Ke number of workmen. The extraordinary success of Henry Ford in the manundun c f auto mobiles has been brought visi bly to the front by this recent de parture. It develops that this company manufadhires one half of the total of 400,000 machines turned out in this cpuntry, the output of the Ford fo&ory have jumped from 75,000 to that figure in a little less than a single year. This success has been attributed entirely to type of motor? 8>is and the territory covered by the salesmen and capacity of pco dutftion. What the industrial and manufacturing world will be mainly intereAed in, however, is the trial of the eight-hoar shift The net remit, it is expeded, will be the amassing of a profit that will more than ju&ily the increase in wages and the distri bution cf the prize money.
