Quite a good number of Franklin
County's leading citizens enjoyed a
most Interesting discussion on boys
and girls poultry club work by Mr.
H. H. B. Mask, of the State Extensiea-J
Department on Saturday afternoon in
the Board'of education rooms at the
request of Miss Pauline Smith, Homej
L emonstratlon Agent, who is trying
to Interest the people of Franklin Coun
ty in raising more poultry. Mr. Mask
stated (hat the goneral providing .ipln
inn that poultry doesn't pay is a farce
and proceeded to prove that one hun
dred hens to'a farm would payhand
some returns. To substantiate hlB
position h? pointed to Catawba Coun
ty that is today operating one of the
most modern and successful Co-opera
tfve Creameries in thS World. This
he said was begun just a few years
ago with the poultry club work, which
developed into'the other branches.
This institution operates regular
routes through the country to receive
chickens, eggs and milk and mother
farm products which are prepared for
i be markets and shipped in large "quan
uties to the larger cities, returning a
vi~e profit .to the farmer^ But one of
-..V. Mask's strongest isasQUB for ad
voeitiag the boys and girls poultry
CJ'. is the great influence it develops
an. "-"' children, who are to be our
men nad women of the future. He
profits of the farm, it would increase
their interest, stimulate their efforts
end bi l:ig about an (dependence and
stability of character that is so neces
sarv in tnt modern busfnesti uiav. or
woman. His entire speech was logi

Loss and Dsmagp Estimated at About'
Origin Thought To Be Iarendlary. {
That the Are bug? hare ?rtrtari an- j
other buiiatng' Th T>oulsburg to their
list when the old Academy building
was burned on Saturday night. Is the
opinion of many of our citizens who
arrived at tho ncone ot the fire In time
?to ascertain that the Are was started
from the front porch and after it was
learned that two people haa been seen
prowling around Hhe building lees
than half an hour before.
The alarm was turned In about 9:45
and the Are- department made prompt
answer and through the qulek^nnd ef
flclent work ot the firemen the hlajg
was subdued before reaching the back
of the building. In fact before the en
tire UTTKe front part had ourned com
pletely away.
The estimated damafp to the bulld
lng was $3,000.00 with Insurance $2,
5UU. ou. Of the furniture and fixtures
$1,500.00, with insurance of $1,300.00.
This was one of the oldest buildings
In toulsburg, being over one hundred
years old and had been used as an
academy for a long number of years.
Many of Franklin's most prominent
citizens received their education Id 11^
and among some of the most noted pro
feasors Who have taught in tt are the
late Matthew S. Davis, and Mr. John
J. Allen, the World's champion spell
This Incident Is proof that the in
cendiaries are respecters or do bulld
ings and should more forcibly Impress
ou our minds the absolute necessity
of making proper arrangements for
the protection of the children In case
of fire during the school hours, and
"Ore catching and punishing the thugs.
As a temporary measure Supt. Mills
is using the Sunday School rooms oT
the Methodist church for the third and
upper second grades in order to make
brick building. '
Sheriff H. A. Kearney reports the
capture of a complete still outfit just
above Loym taut ? ana deatfoyia?
about three hundred gallons of beer
f He also report? the destruction of
?aoout three hundred gallons of beer on

be a member of the club. Although
age limits are set older and younger
people may Join.
Full details of the work to be begun

mean time suffice It to say that the
rianpaign when properly put over,
which is an assured fact that it will
be, It will mean untold herteflts to the
farmer from a source that will not re
quire much more effort or axpense.
In the plan Is contained a method

sen t s a total expense to tHe County

that in the Auditor's statement of the

shown that the County was saTtnf

It will be seen that the amount paK
these offices that is offset trv the waM*

paid the same three offices not offset
by the salary fund is $2.995.76, which
makes a total of irhilr
total receipts for the salary fund 1?
only $16,160.77, making a differ
in favor of salaries of $512.01. How

the total salaries that have no fund

Before leaving this reature it will be
well to state, in Tiew at the fack. that

the least thought to the question will
'not hesitate to support the salary ques
