We have an article sent to us
by a voter of Hertford County
?'?' a request that w? publish same,
s* As we have so many times an
nounced' before in political cam
paigns we do not carry campaign
material once a candidate has en
tered the field for any political
iji'office, unless paid for aiwksigned
as advertisement. These docu
ments are purely advertising
dope, and as such will be run in
this paper, paid for at our reg- j
ular rates.
I
The campaign for the sale of
Liberty Bonds of the Third Lib- j
erty Loan has been undertaken
by the business men of this town
and County with a determination
Is that Hertford County shall do her
part. "Since so many of Our peo
ple are wholly or partially ignor
ant of the exact nature of these j
bonds, the campaign must need
lbe one of education and dissemin-1
j ation of knowledge of the exact
: * " nature of the bonds. In last j
week's issue of the Herald there
appeared a page advertisement |
I donated for the cause by the pro
c, prietors of this office. These
have been followed this week by
Npaee donations by other business
houses of the town and County.
I. In order to acquire yourself with
these bonds and the absolute ne
cessity of purchasing to the lim
fe: it of your resources these govern
.mcnt securities we ask that you
t road these carefullyDon't lct_
E- Hertford County fall behind in
t; this campaign.
TIME FOR ACTION
With the English and Frcnch
I armies facing the gravest crisis
that the great war has yet know;
when Field Marshall llaig tells
his men that they must tight
v "with their backs to the wall,"
i when America is straining every
resource to place American blood
on the battlefeld; when Hertford
County's boys are leaving almost
; in a steady stream for training
eamps and others in campare be
ing rapidly transferred to France;
then, that is time that for the
J i people of Hertford County who
do not have to do the actual
fighting to rally every resource
and offer everything that they
- can ccynmand to the United
States 'Government. There must
r be no stinching, .self must be sub
ordinated to the one great task
and duty of aiding this Govern
1 mcnt to execute their war pro
I gram with the greatest possible
speed. We must turn loose our
money; the government must
have it, and you and I should
give it freely, and without soli
citation. v ' ?
Since December of the past j
year the United States Govern-1
ment has been offering to the!
American people securities in the
form of War saving stamps and
Thrift Stamps. Hertford Coun-1
ty people have been buying them;
they have been loaning their mon
ey to the' government to be paid
back with interest. Men have
given their time and talents to
wards urging, the purchase of
these securities.
Now, for the third time since
America's entrance into the war,
the Government is offering to
the people Liberty Bonds, so
denominated because they are be
ing spent for the prosecution of
a war to uphold the right of free
dom, liberty, and all other essen
tials to the peaceful pursuits of
people who make up a democratic
nation. The campaign is launch
ed with every backing its prose
cution. Money is being spent by
patriotic persons, without com.
pensation, to help place these
bonds and their excellent advan
tages before the whole populace
of the nation. Hertford County
is a part of this great nation, and j
it is Hertford County's war, just j
UKe it is every true American s
war. Hertford County MUST aid
in this campaign. She must bajy
bonds: and she must buy bonds
until it hurts. The sacrifice is
sniall to what our own boys are
withstanding in the form of lead
en bullets and the great sub
marine menace.
The Herald makes a direct ap- j
peal to every person who can rake j
and scrape enough money to pur
chase bonds until their surplus
is exhausted. Don't stop when;
you have bought a few bonds, j
Keep on buying bonds.
SOILS OF HERTFORD COUNTY
Washington, April 16.?To de
termine the nature of the soil
types in Hertford County North
Carolina, in order that local
farmers may be assisted in fitting
crops to soils fo best advantage, |
the Rureau of Soils of the United
States Department of Agriculture,
in co-operation with the North
Carolina Department of Agricul
ture has made a soil survey of the
county. The report of the sur
vey just published by the Depart
ment contains a soil map of the
county on which farmers may
find,the approximate locations of
their farms, and 35 pages of text
describing the various soils and
discussing their capabilities.
The report includes a , brief
historical and geographical
sketch of the region surveyed and
statistics relating to its climate.
The system of agriculture now
prevailing in Hertford County is
that common to the northeastern
part of the state, peanuts, cotton
and tobacco being the principal
money crops. The agricultural
commercial standing of the county
"?"??I mamIy upon t?e .ittaspe?_,
five cotton crop and live stock,
and the prosperity of the county
varies to a large extent with the
price of cotton, which is still
considered the staple farm pro
duct. Corn is the most important
food and feed crop, although the
amount now grown is only two
thirds of the quantity required
for feeding purposes.
Soils
A study of the soils of the
cqunty leads to the belief that all
the meat, lard, hay, corn, meal
and much of the flour imported]
could he easily produced withont
any large increase in the acreage
now cultivated. With the same
attention to the' preparation of
the seed bed for small gtain, the
cultivation of corn, and the fertiU.
ization of these crops as is given
to peanuts and cotton, therfc
should be an important increase
in yields, and with the raising of
more l?eef cattle, hogs, sheep, and
Work stock, the larger supply ,of
barnyard manure resulted in a
further increase. The 1910" Wn
f ? ?j *
sua reported about 32 per eent of
the total area of the eountry an
being improved land, leaving,
approximately 150,000 acrea in
forested tracts, woodleta, and
fields lying idle. The greater part
of the unused area is covered with
a second growth o? pine. Practi
ealy all of it could be brought un
der cultivation and all of it is suit
able for pasture. With canalling
and clearing the bottom lauds a
long the Ahoskie and Cutawhis
kie Swamps and the upper course
of Poteeasi Creek easily produce
as much corn and hay as is ship
ped into the county, and probably
furnish subsistence for enough
hogs to produce the country's
meats supply. One of the great
est needs of the county is more
farmers to use the idle lands.
There is little specialization, of
crops from place to place as a re
sult of soil influences. Tobacco
growing is mainly confined to the
southeastern part of the county.
In general, the subsistence crops
are grown largely on the Norfolk,
Orangeburg, and Ruston soils,
and the farms here are more near
ly self-supporting and more high
ly improved than those on the
Coxville and Porthsmouth soils.
This codition exists in spite of
the fact that the Coxville and
Portsmouth soils are well suited
to corn, small grain,'and grasses,
and is the result largely of the
fact that there is a larger propor
tion of farms operated by tenants
on these soils than on those of the
Norfolk, Orangeburg, and Ruston
v i i^a,
Hertford County lies wholly
within the Costal Plain region of
North Corlitja. The soils are de
rived from sands arid clay of sedi
mentary origin?material brought
down from the Piedmont Plateau
and Appalachian mountains re
gions as the w eathered product of
rioeks and deposited on the sea
floor when these part of North
Carolina was under water. Six
series of soils, under the classi
fication adopted by the UuitsiV
States bureau are recognized in
he country.
The soils of Hertford county
are classed with the ? Coxville;
Norfolk, Portsmouth, Orangeburg
and Ruston series. In addition to
these series, some of which have
several phrases, the miscellaneous
type, Swamp, is mapped.
The large areas mapped as
Swamp include alluvial soils,
constantly being added to by ma
terial brought down, reworded,
and redeposited by the streams.
Swamp occurs in the first bottoms
of al the streams having overflow
channels. It is not cultivated,
but the reclamation of important
areas apparently is feasibly.
