BERLIN (By wireless via Sayvllle. ?
? So far as I can learn the opinions
of the German Government, it does
not believe that a cessation of the
war is likely in many months to come
and Is preparing to wago the con
test with fiercer energy than ever bo
The chorus of protest from Eng
lish statesmen and newspapers
against peace now seems to have
convinced the German Government
that the struggle must continue.
To neutral observers possessed of
certain opportunities to learn the
progress of events and the trend of
opinion in the Entente countries,
however, the impression is forced

that the Entento Powers are thor

GAS CO. GOES
CAPTAIN LEACH APPOINTED TO
ADJUST MATTERS OP LOCAL,
The Waablngton Lighting Com
pany, more commonly known as the
Washington Gas Company, went In
to the hands of a receiver yesterday.
Captain George T. Leach has been
appointed receiver. When seen this
?morning, CapUln Leach had the
following to say:
"You can say for me that the gas
plant will not be ahnt down for a
alnglo day. I've heard a gyod deaf
of talk about this and It appeara to
haveeauaed some people uneaalness.
But there Will be no danger of this
,f taking place.
"I am going to get tiro experienc

the active management or the plant;
men who know their bualneas In ev

BE WATCHED BY THE EN
TIRE COUNTRY WITH
BUILD PACKING PLANT
Gigantic plans for the development
of Beaufort county ? far largor tha?
any of our cltisens dream ? are now
under way and are rapidly coming to
a head. The operation of farms by
stock companies, tbe raising of stock
on an extensive scale and the erec
tion of a packing plant are only a
fow of the many things that are about
to come to pass.
Beaufort county Is getting nation
wide publicity. The following arti
cle. taken from the New York Times,
will give some idea of what is about
The purchase by Mark W. Potter
and associates of 45,000 acres of land
in Eastern North Carolina from the
Norfolk Southern Railroad Company,
announced a few days ago, may
prove the first step In tho organisa
tion stork c?mpAQi?!? /or ib? oper
ation of farmalh roughotu" th e coun
try. At any event, the experiment
will be watched with a good deal of
interest by political economists, for
It concerns the most vital problem
in the world today, the provision of
foodstuffs and their delivery to the
consumer without the addition of
heavy charges for the middleman.
The Norfolk Southern Farms Com
pany has been organized to develop
the land purchased, and If the pro
ject proves feasible other companies
will undoubtedly follow its leader
ship In putting Idle land under cultl*
vatlon. The tract adjoins the Nor
folk Southern road, no part of It be
ing more than flvo miles from. tbe
track, and the land Is adapted to the
use of motor trucks for hauling pro
duce to the cars. Mr. Potter, who is
already farming about 4,000 acrcs In
that section with success, plans to.-j
retain about 20,000 acres himself on
which to raise livestock. He hopes I
to raise enough cattle and hogB to !
keep a packing house busy, and to
fship two car-loads of fresh meat to
New York every day. The shipments
! would be taken from the cars by his
| trucks and delivered directly to ho
tels and markets.
Tho land is low, with a rail of one
foot to a mile, and naturally swampy.
The good "limber has been cut off.
leaving a stand of small trees and
underbrush. It will be drained off
by lateral ditches and the trees cnt
j down. Corn will be planted In the
' rich soil by the old-fashioned process
of making holes with a sharp pointed
Stick, into which grains sre dropped,
and a moderate yield produced. The
stalks will then be bUrntd. This pro
cess will be carried on for four years,
after whlob It Is expected that tlie
land will be ready for the plow. After
that potatoes, cow peas, winter rye,
and oats will be raised. This plan,
has proved successful on smaller.

JtimmTIJfE IN THE DAILY NEWS
At MORE THAN PLEASED WITH RESULTS
OF THEIR SPECIAL ADVERTISEMENT
. p.- ?
I wish to express my slncero gratification over the results of
the advertisement we ran In your paper la connection with our
"Rexall One-Cent Sale" last week. I attribute the success of
?4hls sale largely to the advertising In the I>ally News. Last year
we conducted a sale of this kind but did not do any newspaper
adverting. This year, as the result of the publicity given to
the project through your paper, our ssIph during the first day
exceeded those of the entire sr.le last year.
I am fully convinced as to the benefits of advertising In tho
Dally News and when we have our next special sale of this or
any kind you may rest assured that wo will use the Daily News
extensively. t Very truty yours.
