TEST YOUR SINCERITY: If y

things which are above, where Christ
sitteth on i-he right hand of God.
It Would Help
The suggestion has come to The
Perquimans Weekly that the Board
of Commissioners for the Town of
Hertford should bake steps to mark
the names of all streets within the
town and to see that property own
ers properly mark the numbers of
The suggestion is a pertinent one,
The Weekly believes, and is one, if
carried out would help considerably
in adding attractiveness to the town
and render great aid to new comers
With the Town's population great
ly increased, and more people likely
to come here, the newcomers are at a
loss to know exact locations of homes
and apartments. We believe the task
could be carried out without great
difficulty or expense and should be
done as soon as posible.
Some of our farmer friends will
not like this warning but, neverthe
less, it is timely to remind them of
the bankruptcy of American agricul
ture which followed the wild infla
tionary sprees of the first World
War and the early post-war , period.
We understand the inevitable long
ing that every agriculturist has to
secure higher prices for his products.
In this, the farmer is no different
from any other citizen. It is hard
for any individual to understand
that a balanced income over a period
of years is much more to be desired
than high incomes for a few years
and low incomes for many years
The farmer, according to most
economists, is the first to feel the
dire blight of a depression and the
last to recover from its ravages.
While we may regret the truth of this
statement, we should not overlook it.
Consequently, intelligent farmers
should be sure that everything neces
sary is now being done to prevent
the surging flood of inflation that
sweeps away the savings of a life
A farmer does not have to be a
very old man to remember that in the
early Twenties farm land had prac
tically no cash value. When put on
,,.sale, the amount received depended
almost entirely upon the lucky cir
cumstances, such as the existence of
a nearby neighbor who happened to
want some land. So far as attract
ing investment capital, farm lands, in
the last depression, simply did not
exist as an asset.
In view of the demands that are
arising throughout the land for in
creased prices and higher wages, we
are about resigned to the expectation
of another great depression. We
hope that it can be avoided out un
less present trends in the United
States are checked, we doubt it.
Consequently, we feel it necessary
to warn all farmers to be on their
guard, avoiding excessive commit
ments and the creation of new obli
gations and, wherever possible, to
conduct their operations on a cash

as broadcast this week on
the Kaltenborn program
It's an odd fact but a true one, that
less you drive, the more your cir needs
service. That's what 'he engineers in
Pure Oil's research laboratory "ay and
they know cars. Here's their advice on
oil changes under reduced driving condi
tions. Change oil every sixty days, or
every 1,000 miles whichever comes first.
You see, today, under reduced driving
conditions, with short trips at low speeds
your motor doesn't get hot enough to
drive off the moisture that condenses in
the crankcase. This excess moistures
plus unburned gasoline, dirt and carbon
particles, contaminates the oil. It may
even form what engineers call "Mayon
naise sludge." This sludged oil is hard
to circulate, steals power from the motor,
and doesn't lubricate all parts properly.
So don't take a chance. Change oil
every sixty days at the big, blue-and-white
