The Roanoke News of- Weldon,
North Carolina ' carries an excellent
editorial this week on the question of
spasmodic advertiseing. There are a
number of business men in the State
to which the editoria applies, as these
men seem to think that if they insert
a small ad. once a season they have
done everything that should be . done
bv wav of local advertising. Other
business men realize the importance
of constantly keeping their goods be
forft the readers and consistently ad
vertise throughout the year, of course,
making their displays appropriate ana
season. These business-men re-
rojmize the true value of their local
paper, and use its columns because it
keeps them before the public in tne
most efficient way possible. ;
The editorial in the Roanoke News
is as follows: "It's just as easy for
you to' eat enough in one da to last
you a week, as it is for the business
man to advertise enough in one week
to last him a year. The business man
who thinks he is-like a:camel and can,
make a long journey of, business ,on
one spurt of advertising, will find
himself very dry before he has reach
ed the first oasis."

POLK COUNTY FARM AIID HOME DEPMIEIIT
Edited by J. R. Sams, County Agent.
POLK COUNTY FAIRS.
The Polk county Fairs are over.
They were all good, but could have
been better. Saluda Community fair
came off first too early to make a
good showing. This fair excelled in
fruit, apples in particular. No -live
stock was shown except poultry.
Columbus, October 2nd, was the sec
ond community fair, and excelled in
corn. The attendance was not quite
as great as at Saluda. Mill Spring
was next at the bat and made a home
run. The exhibits of live stock was
good for the first effort at fair work.
There were several family cows,
calves and yearling colts of good
quality and a good lot of poultry,
corn and soy beans, fruit and garden
vegetables and truck was in evidence.
Cooper Gap township, at Sunny View
school, made a good display and in
proportion to opportunity and past
experience knocked the whole show
out of the Ridge. Corn and sweet
potatoes were the best part of the
show; but garden vegetables, soy
beans and live stock including cattle,
hogs and poultry made the judging
Now I have not mentioned the
Home Economics; department at eith
er of these fairs; and it is not neces
sary to do so now, for it always goes
without argument that the women
can be counted on to do their part. I
unhesitatingly say that if the men of
these communities had taken the in
terest in these fairs the women did,'
they would have outstripped anything
of the kind held in the State; but O,
Wretched men what would become
of -you anyway, was it not for the
Now for the ' County Fair. This
has had all kinds of hard knocks from
the time it was knocked, out last year
until the present. The fiu,.aswe all
know, snowed us under last year af
ter all arrangements had been made
for a good fair. Then it was reor
ganized with the same officers. Then
on account of the health of the sec
retary's wife, he was called away
from the State and no one was secur
ed to get hold on the thin? until it
was so late no one wanted to take
hold; besides the season and labor
conditions were unfavorable to the de
velopment of crops that are prize
winners; hence the difficulty in hav
ing an extra fair. But with all the
handicaps the officers of the Polk
County Fair Association are to be
congratulated upon the success as
demonstrated by the things on exhi
bition and the crowds of people -who
attended. Moreover, they are to be
congratulated for-the pluck and cour
age to go ahead and hold a fair at all
under all the trying circumstances
during the last year to defeat the
fair. The ladies in the County Fair,
as in the community fairs' were the
big factor in making the thing a suc
cess. But for Miss Flentye, like an
angel, or some strange something,
dropped down from a stray cloud,
who rendered such valuable service
as secretary on the last moment, the
whole project it seems would have
failed. With the present reorganiza
tion and past experience, we will look
forward to 1920 with renewed and
Spicy Dots for Farmers .
Cotton p-rowers should store their
cotton in a SAFE, DRY place, if a
good paying price is not offered when
ginned. The crop is the shortest for
several years and the price will be
good, unless the grower foolishly
gives away his opportunity and labor.
That, wheat crop Now don't

are still in the grip of a nrotrac-
ted dry spell. Those who have strat-
ed pastures may be disheartened.
Don't losefaith. Such spells come in
all ages. In" Elijah's time the earth
received no rain for the space of three
years 'and six months. We would be
doing some growling, if our dry spell
had been going on that long. Now
those who have sown high price-id
grass seed, don't be discouraged. It
may not be as bad as you think;, some
times rain will bring little grass to
life when apparently it is dead. Wait
and give the rain a chance. Then if,
not a good stand, don't plow that up,'
the fodder and seed for calf and poul
the section harrow over it.
Save everything. Fall is the waste
ful season of the whole year. Every
thing is plentiful; dig and save all the
sweet and Irish potatoes, don't allow
the sorghum cane to go to waste,
make the large stalks into good Polk
County Syrup and save every blade of
the fodder and seed for calf a nd poul

cotton; that will be left for the wind

jyour seed corn next spring -when
jplanted, Better pick it to be made

tle chidren from going bare besides
many war savings certificates could
be purchased in Polk county from lit

We want men women, boys 1 and
girls all over Polk county to enlist in
some kind of club work right now, in
order that we may have some of thi
best family cows, calves, colts, poul
try pigs, corn and grain of all kinds,
peanuts, cow peas soy beans etc. to
carry to the fair next year and to
store for family use and carry to-mar-ket
to enlarge the bank account.
Now let me ask of everybody in
Polk county not to forget to ' plant
Out this year a large crop of friend
ship. This is the most important of
all crops. It is one of the easiest
crops in all the world to grow, when
one learns how and the art of -'grow-
ing this crop is the easiest of all arts
to; learn, and yet how miserably ne-'
glected is this crop in some commun
ities". In order to make a good pay
ing crop of friendship, it is only nec
essary to plant good seed, and give
the crop thorough cultivation. No
use ordering lime or fertilizer, acid
phosphate r anything of the kind;
just be sure that you have the gen
uine seed. Now the best place to. get
good seed is in the lst'Episte of John,
3rd and 4th chapters. Love is 'the
seed to plant. The hearts of your
neighbors is the best place to plant it
and then cultivate it with , a i little
kindness all along through the year.
Wet weather, dry weather hot nor
cold weather do not affect this crop.
Just try it this next year and see how
your own heart will growrrnd the -more
love one gives to his neighbors,
the more he has left. Try it and see.
