County Demonstrator Coltrane was
with us last weeK during tne wiau
tauqua and made an announcement in
regard to the county fair that is to be
held here October 31st and November
1st. We appreciated very much the
nattering things he said for Ramseur
and we expect to live up to nis expec
tations in this attempt to bluild up our
community and county. We hope to
see our people appreciate this oppor
tunity in such a substantial way that
will bring results not only to Ramseur
' community but to the whole county
and this iwction ofr-fre state. .
Ramseur decided not to return the
Radcliffe Chautauqua next year, not
because we fail to appreciate the gooa
work of the Chautauqua, nor because
there was nothing in this year's pro
gram that appealed to us for there
were several numbers on the program
that were alone worth the price of
the season ticket. The lectures were
simply sublime. Something that we
don't have the opportunity of hearing
often, possibly never again The ob
jection that refused" the return of the
Chautauaua was the time it gets to us.
We want it in the summer time. We
can't appreciate it at a time wnen we
are burdened with harvesting crops,
beginning the school year and the
busiest of almost every line of busi
ness. The Radcliffe Chautauqua is
great institution and we fell in love
with the director, Rev. Mr. Smith, of
South Carolina, who made two grand
lectures and made many friends here
by his strong personality and congen
ial spirit. The Chautauaua was well
attended and much enjoyed.

SAN DIAGO SPEECH
San W 'V CaL 19The text
of PresidemVbWilson's' address at the
stadium here was, in part, as follows:
"If anybody discusses this question
(the league of nations) on the basis
of narty - advantage, I repudate him
as a fellow American and in order
to Validate what I have said, I warn
to make one or two quotations from
representatives of a party to which I
do not belong, but first I ?hall quote
from a man who has for a long time
been a member of the United States
The President then quoted Senator
'je as saying at a banquet i..
1918: "No one, I think, can feel more
deeply than I do the difficulties which
confront us in the world which this
league (the league to enforce peace)
undertakes. But the difficulties can
not be overcome unless we try to
overcome them. I belive it can be
done. Probably it will be impossible
to stop all wars, but it certainly will
be possible to stop some wars and thus
diminish their number. The way in
which this problem is to be worked
out must be left to this league and to
those who are giving this great ques
tion study which it deserves. I know
the obstacles. I know how squarley we has been very cessM in business.
I Mr. Momtt was married to Miss
Alyrtie Herndon, daughter of Dr. and
JOHN T. KOFEIIT, PROM
Mr. John T. Moffitt died at his home
on Sunset Avenne Wednesday of last
week following an illness of more than
a year. Up to the time that Mr. Mof
fitt was stricken with cancer of the
threat he. was. a remarkably healthy
man, but since that time his health
has been gradually going down. He
had been undergoing treatment m
Baltimore and elsewhere, but the dis
ease baffled his physicians and finally
Mr. Moffitt was a son of the late
E. A. Moffitt. He was educated at
Trinity College and afterwards went
into business with his father under the
firm name of E. A. Moffitt and Son.
Their store was diagonally across trie
street from the old court house. After
their store was burned in 1895, Mr.
Moffitt engaged in the Wood and Iron
Works and later went to Florida and
was in the lumber business there for
a number of years. He then returned
to Asheboro and up to the time of his
death was a contractor, having built
some of the larger business enter-
shall be met with the statement
This is a dangerous question which
you are putting into this agreement
that no nation can submit to the judg
ment of other nations and we must be
careful at the beginning not to attempt
too much' I know the difficulties which
arise when we speak of anything which
seems to involve an allianc?, but I do
not believe when Washington ward
ed us against entangling alliances he
meant for one moment tnat we should
not join with the other civilized nations
of the world if a method could be found
diminish war and encourage peace.
"This league certainly has the
higest of all ambitions for tht benefit
of humanity and because the pathway
is so strewn with difficulties is no rea
son that we should turn from it." .
The President quoted ex-President
Roosevelt as having written in an art
icle published in October, 1914:
"The only prominent move for ob
taining peace which has yat been sug
gested with any reasonahre chance oi
attaining its object is by. an -igrec.ir.ent
among the great powers in which each
should pledge itself not only to abide
rby the decision of a common tribunal,
but to back With f eras tne1 aewtaoir oi
that common tribunal. The great cmliz
ed nations of the world which do not
possess force actually or immediately
or potentially should combine by sol
emn agreement in a great world league
for peace and righteousness."
'Jl very wortny utterance by lheo-
dore Roosevelt," continued the presi
dent. "I am glad to align mysell with
such utterances as that. I subscribe to
every word of it, and here in concrete
form is the fulfillment of the plan
which they advocate. We cannot in
reason, we cannot, as lovers ot noerty,
we cannot as supporters of right, turn
away from it."

PERSUING IDEA OF AMERICA'S
OVER HALF MILLidrf AVFECTED
BY STRIKE OF STEEL WORKERS
The demonstration of the mechan
ical horse at Asheboro last Saturday
was a complete success. It was a suc
cess because it convinced those at
tending that power farming is to play
an important part to Increase the food
production of this nation. The four
tractors hitched' to modern farm ma
chinery convinced the 300 people who
attended that the iron mule has at
least displaced the kind that Bill Bry
an used to ride.
Durinsr the polwing demonstration
three tractors pulling disc and flat
bottom plows simply ran rings around
a plow pulled by mules. Two kind of
disc plows were used and one flat bot
tom plow. The disc plow without sub
soiler plowed 12 inches deep, while the
one that used the subsoilez plowed 18
inches deep. Tho flat bottom mow wa
in the ground 7 inches. While the
disc was going much deeper it was
plowing about twice asmuch per
round as tho disc plow. The flat bot
tom nlow was turnhur 24 inches at, a
round, while tho disc was turning
about 15 inches. After plowing the
land these tractors wero hitched to
barrows and clod crushers. Inn short
while the land was prepared well
enough for seeding. ; ,
Randolph farmers were pleased with
thm ahawinr made by the Ford son in
this demonstration. Daring tho past
year skeptics have been convinced be
yond any doubt that the day of power
farming has arrived, '.'';
