We must, after building up our soil, learn a crop rotation that will keep the soil up when once built up. ' , 3rd. Permanent pastures is just as essential to good farming as good corn fields and cotton fields. 4th. When good pastures are es tablished-then comes good live stock. cattle, sheep, hogs and poultry to consume these good pastures. 5th. Last yearrwe undertook pure bred poultry project, by which we desire to free Polk county from scrub chickens. This we want to push with all our might this year." 6th. We have undertaken the im provement of swine growing, and s Hampshire Swine Breeders Associa tion has been organized, and we want as many farmers as possible to join this movement and by so doinsr standardize the hogs of Polk, county. 7th. We want to do more commun ity organization - work. A farmers club at every school 'house in the county would be a good thing and is perfectly practical. 8th.

We want to -do the best year. of Boys' corn and other club work we have ever done in the county. 10th. We want to do the best ROUSEMENT work ever done in Polk county. Now some, may not know just what kind of work this is. Well, if you don't, .just think of something that ought to be done to help make Polk the best county in North Carolina and lay hold and do the thing with all your might and you will be doing your part of the ROUSEMENT. Now ali these things enumerated especially we want to push, - and . a thousand other things not named. Of, these things mentioned, the two most important are Soil Building and Con servation and Permanent ' Pastures. When the soil is made rich and lota of good pastures built up, then old Polk will cease to be Poke, and will - go at a lively pace. . We must quit making a -joke of ourselves and act in a way that outside people will quit also. The good law-abiding people ; of Polk county plead with all who are engagd in blockading and all other forms of lawlessness to quit and join with us in constructive farming and other legitimate work which will make Polk county famous for its good crops its fine soil and her fine people which is the best of all crops. -God did not make man to be a lawless man. He made him in His own image, and He Expects him to stay in His image and act to some extent like unto Him. So in this blessed 1920 do our best to make Polk the -cleanest and best place on earth to live. J. R. SAMS. County Agent CAPT. JOHN W. WILCOX. A long; familiar, figure passed out from among us here at Saluda, when Captain John W. Wilcox answered the sudden summons of death on New Year's night. He had passed a happy evening with the members of his family, and retired early as was his custom, waving a smiling good night to his sons (who have been spending the holidays with their sis ter, Mrs. Clifford Wilcox) and and a few minutes later had passed into the great beyond. John Wesley Wilcox was born in New Orleans, August 4th, 1840. He served in -the war between the states as a member of the Washing ton Artillery, a famous New Orleans organization. He was ; married after the war to Miss Anna Holmes, of Charleston, S. ,C. He is survived by his widow and eight children; Mrs. Louis J. Anderson, of Milledgeville Ga Miss L. Clifford Wilcox, of Sa lulda; Arthur D. Wilcox, of Ensley, Ala.; Commander John W. Wilcox, of the U. S. Navy, Mrs. Arthur Tufts, of Atlanta, Ga.; and Louis D. Wilcox of Baltimore. - Captain Wilcox followed the pro fession of engineering for a greater part of his life, (having been for years city engineer of Macon, Ga. For a short time in his young manhood he iperated a locomotive, and in his de clining years the 7 great engines that thunder up the grade into Saluda had a peculiar fascination for him, many a summer resident of Saluda having witnessed the sight of a white-haired old gentleman standing near the track at the top of the grade, waving his hat to the man at the throttle "of the straining monster as it passed up the road, a symbol of the thought that he has made the grade and passed on' to better things. MOUNTAIN" VTEWr Cold wejaher still prevails, with plenty of hard wind and a little snow. Glad to note that our school opens today with Miss Hettie Harris teacher. Mr. Fred Corn and Miss Roxie Walker were happily married last Tuesday December 30th. - We wish for them a long and happy life. Arthur Jackson was the play visitor of Braudus McCrain Sunday P. M. Mr. Willie Gilbert and mother spent last Monday with the tatter's daugher Mrs, H. H. McCrain. Mr. L. B. McGraw moved to Spart anburg, last week. . .

If, taxed by obnoxious affairs, you feel like giving away to anger or re volt, then hasten to get away from your own . self and do not yield to impressions that are liable to rob you of your self-possession. The more we exercise our will in maintaining our mental equipoise, the' easier this control becomes for us. Marcus Au relius. I Insidious Malice. Malice, in its false witness, pro motes its tale with so cunning a con fusion, so mingles truths with false hoods, surmises - with certainties, causes of no moment with matters capital, that the accused can absolute ly neither grant nor deny, plead nor confess guilt.
