A charter was . granted last- Holi
day to a firm -which will be known
as The Ball Cultivator Company,"
to engage in the manufacture I f
the! newly patented Ball culti vattjr.
The cultivator is the invention bi
Mr. M. L. Ball, an Elizabeth Oi
mechanic and an inventive genius.
Mr Ball has been working on this
fcr the past two years. In Janu
ary j 1901, he applied for a patent,
which viras granted him on the 9 th
cfav of July. The cultivator is !a
great labor saver, doing with one
plan, and two horses, the work
which three men and three horses
would do with an ordinary culti
vator. It is so arranged as. to
stradle the . row1 and cultivate
both sides at one operation,' being
adjustable v by set screws to any
Teasonabie widtn 01 row ana aiso
adjustable to throw to or from the
to wi All the authorities on plows
as well as farmers who have' given
it an actual test, say that it is the
best cultivator that has ever been
brought out. j
t The incorporators of the com
pany are: J. H. Aydlett, M "Ii.
Ball and Abner Aydlett, with an
authorized capital of $50,000 of
which amount $6,000 has been
paid in. ! " The business will be
run by a stock company, all the
stock-holders of 'which will be
Elizabeth City men.
The Company has rented the
rear of the Albemarle Hotel Build
ing,' ground . floor, . and have re
moved partitions, added on a
she'd to the rear, for engines

Suitable -benches and . machinery
are being placed in position. The
company began work yesterday
and are turning out a few samples!

Mow It Sounds.
Did you, Mr. Merchant,' when
you write your advertisement; ever
stop to think how it will sound to
the reader? Do you ever stop . to
eliminate vthe superflous state
ments, or correct those which
might tend to create a wrong im
pression? Are you' conscientious
and truthful in your advertising,
making only those promises and
agreements which" you can andwiil
live up to? Is yo -r advertisement
definite, that is, can it be constru
ed to mean several ; things? Is it
plain, that is, will your readers un
derstand it as you understand it?
The fact that' many merchants
write their advts., in a hurry is
evidenced Tby the" careful perusing
of a few of them. It is a matter
of regret that an apparently sane
man would advertise "a car load ' of
"fresh" salt, thereby coupling5 two
opposites in a manner misleading
as well' as unsatisfactory: 1 Salt is
never fresh in anysense '
Another man does not hesitate
to announce that he deals ; in
"clean" coal.: No comments - are
necessary, nevertheless some other
word would express the desired
information more advantageously
than clean. i. ;: ;
