According to the Independent

thjgre seems to be a rank and un
justifiable discrimination on .the
psyrt of certain officials against
the Sunday schools of German

tq'allow the use of the city play
grounds for civil and other pur
poses without complaint or hind
race. Fourth of July celebra
tions were held in them, also
dtizi their sports there.

alEbwed to hold a carnival for

playground in which to hold a
hijjorical pag-eant showing the
reijgious life of the community
in its early days they were re-1

could get a playground for two!

Homo Grown Seed Are Bssi.
West Raleigh, N. O , Sept. 29.
irride is often expressea in
home-grown and home- made
products, but when tt comes to
seed we are too ready to discard
the home-grown product for
that from other sections of the
State or even from other States.
By this means, seed are often
secured which are not adapted
to the local soil or climate. Many
times a high price is paid for
seed that are not so good as the
home-grown seed. .By carer ally
I made tests, it has been found
that home-grown-seed of corn.
cotton, wheat, oats and clover
(are better than seed brought in
from other localities.
A few people still believe that
crops 'run out" when planted
in the same locality for seveial
years. This is far from true.

The post office department has
been making considerable chang
es (during the ' last few years,
some of which seem to have
considerable merit and some look
otherwise, however, it is gener
ally easier to criticise than to un
derstand. The latest move is to
make the leading office in a given
section, a kind of supply house,
or distributing point. This has
been done in the case of Salis
bury, and it is now necessary for
al I other offices in this county to
get their supplies from the Salis
bury office and also to make re
re Dorts to it. This will make it
necessary for this office to carry
a larger supply and make it un
necessary for theother offices to
carry as large stocks as they
have heretofore. This seems
to be a consolidation and simoh-
ncation ot business and moat
likejy will be of much help and
convenience to the oublic.
