Better Farming.
Th& U. S. Department of
culture is soliciting the names of
five hundred farmers, in this
county, who want to grow fifty
bushels of corn and a bald of cot
ton per acre.
A meeting will be held at Sal
isbury, Rowan County, at 2
o'clock, p. m., Saturday, Dec. 21,
1907, for the purpose of discuss
ing the methods to be employed
and to secure the names of all
who wish to co-operate in the
work. Progressive farmers will
not let tnis opportunity Tass un
heeded. Yours very truly,
. C. R. Hudson.
Special Agent U. S. Dept. Agri
We are induced to believe that
this movement is one that will be
of great value to every farmer,
he who is on the farm and he who
intends to farm. Every farmer
interested in betteringtis condi
tion, in raising bigger and better
crops by cultivating fewer acres
with less labor and at less expense
than heretofore, should make a
point to attend this meeting,
A young white man, who. Jiad
just rarnvecr in irgalisbury vlast
Wednesday; night, was arrested
Thursday morning on a charge of
theft. Mis name is Geo. Rose.
his home is in Richmond and he
is a barber by profession.- He had
been sent a ticket by the proprie
tor of a Salisbury barber shop.
who expected him to gf to work
Thursday morning. He was tak
en in at Mrs. Barrier's boarding
house on West Cbuncil street and
during the night entered the room
of Sidney Barrier and robbed his
clothes of $11.85. He was sus
pected, officers were sent "for and
arrested him. He tried to settle
the matter by returning the
amount. 'His case will most like
ly go to the Superior court and a
chain gang sentencejnay follow.
Rose was given a hearing before
Esquire H. J. Overman-Thursday
afternoon and bound over to Su
perior Court in the sum of $50.00.
Rose is still in jail, but hopes to
secure bond.
Most likely the young man was
brought up in idleness and has
been made to believe he was en
titled to a living, very likely some
over indulgent parents have paid
him out of simihar troubles be
fore and so he continues to steal,
knowing some one will come to
his rescue, or hoping something
will turn up to cheat the law out
of a justly deserved punishment.
There is just one remedy for this
kind of a boy, and that is for pa
rents, not reformatories, to have
their sons thoroughly understand
that the bread they eat and
clothes they wear must b? paid for
in some honorable way,, by labor,
or some professional service. Then
they have a just right to such
things and under no circumstan
ces before. Parents learn your
boys to work or prepare to weep
over their misdeeds.
