Practical Agricultural Courses.
Dean C. B. Williams says that ac
tive arrangements are being made to
put in final shape the short course in
agriculture for farmers that are to
start on Octobr 30 at the State Col
lege, Raleigh, and continue for six
teen weeks. These courses have been
especially designed to give those who
come to the College for this' short.
practical instruction, information
along different lines of farming prac
tical i&structYn, information along
different lines of farming practiced in
the state that may be put into use on
the home farm by those who come.
The early farming in North Caro
lina under pioneer conditions of so
ciety was a comparatively simple
operation, but in this day and time,
as. farming has become a more com
plex and commercial enterprise and
when crops are raised on a large scale
for competition in world markets, the
welMnformed and alert farmer, other
things being equal, is the one who is
going to make the most out of his
farming operations. The courses, as
arranged, will no doubt greatly aid
those taking them to become more
modern and businesslike in their farm
ing operations than they could other
wise possibly have been.
Opportunity will be afforded to
give the busy men on the farm, both
old and young, to spend two or four
.months at the college studying the
different branches of farming thay
have especial interest in and do so at
a sesaon of the year when work on
the farm is least pressing. Those who
come will be brought in close "person
al touch with the specialists o the
College, Experiment Station, and Ex
tension Service and thereby be given
ian opportunity to become acquainted
with the work that is being done in
the state at the present time in the
interest of those engaged in farming.
Those attending the course should be
come, better fitted fpr taking up their
life work by having secured a better
and more intimate view of agriculture,
In general and a higher efficiency and
knowledge in their chosen fields of
Courses are to be offered in field
crops, in live stock including dairying,
horticulture, and in poultry. Arrange
ments have been made whereby spe
cial lectures on different phases of
agriculture will be given by the differ
ent specialists of the college, experi
ment station, and extension service.
Many farmers of this county and
of other counties in the state should
make every effort- to arrange their
farm work so that they can avail
themselves of this splendid opportu
nity of visiting the college and secur
ing practical information that is to be
offered there in the short courses in
agirculture that have been arranged
especially for the busy farmers of the
state. ' '
University Men Study War.
The student battalion of the Univer
sity' had its first taste of modern war
fare methods here, when the four com
panies were divided into attacking and
defending parties and maneuvered in
the various basic principles of combat
tactics as applied to the infantry or
ganizations. , During the past week the mechan
ism of extended order drill has been
learned with precision. Various exer
cises in the nature of maneuvers have
been carried out, as far as practicable,
against imaginary or represented ene
mies. The self-reliance, initiative, ag
gressiveness, conception of teamwork
and other fundamental characteristics
of successful leadership acquired by
the platoon leaders during the past
week were given a test Saturday and
the results were in most cases very
At 2 o'clock the battalion was form
ed on the parade ground and after the
definite plan of action had been ex
plained in a few preliminary remarks,
the two organizations set off by dif
ferent routes for the scene of the com
bat. The members of the attacking party
wore white bands around their hats to
distinguish them from the other or
ganization. Lieutenant Leonard was
in charge of the attacking party and
the defending unit was under the com
mand of Lieutenant Whitfield.

Accepts Proposition of Wild West
Show Employee and Gets inside

Monta Jessup is the robust son of
Orin Jessup, president of the Orin Jea

is a true American lad, says the In
dianapolis News. He knows when a
circus comes to town,, and like all other
boys, he will find a way t osee the
show. That was why he did not miss
a Wild West exhibition that played
Tipton recently. The lad had been
pondering over how he was to get In

greatly encouraged until a big, black
man one of the many sons of Ham
with the show approached, him.
"Say, sonny, how big's your dad?"
asked the stranger.
"He's a whopper," promptly replied
the youngster, thinking perhaps the
colored man might have some notion
of ordering him roughly from the

The lad scurried away and soon de
livered one of Mr. Jessup's best shirts
to the colored man, who was as good
as his word, and took the lad through
.every tented attraction on the grounds.
Later on the young American had it
forcibly impressed on him that he could
have gone to the show several times
for what the shirt cost.
Spanked the Kitty.
The little black kitten hid under the
veranda and refused to come out and
be friends again with Polly. Mamma
found the little girl in tears, and asked
the cause of the trouble.
"Kitty scratched me, so I was
'bliged to spank her, an' now she won't
play with me," sobbed Polly.
"If you spank kitty, she won't love
you," explained mamma.
"I didn't know 'bout that," replied
the little one miserably, "'cause yon
spank me an' I love you just the same.
