An Ideal Farm. Near Dra

Draper, N.C., May Ist.
Messrs. Editors :
If your space will permit I
will write a few lines which you
may publish as to the method of
farming here and the present
condition of this farm, which is
considered a small one here, as
it is near some of the largest
farms and best farmers of the
communnity viz : Fitzgerald,
Mebane, French, Gery and var-j
The farm is surveyed into 15
shifts and I have a blue print j
showing the exact acreage of'
each lot to the fraction of anj
acre. Most every lot is fenced
with a hog proof wire fence and
is all in cultivation or pasture,!
with only a small portion in
Our principal crops are hay,
grain, live stock and vegetables.
My crop for this year will be as
follows : corn 20 acres, about
half of it after crimson clover
and hay; 22 acres in wheat;'
about 50 acres in winter and
spring oats all of which has been
seeded to grass or crimson clover
which will all be mowed for hay;
about 12 acres in rye and oats
for grazing and 5 acres in alfalfa.
Have planted 10 barrels of
irish potatoes and am not more
than half through on account of
so much rain, about 2 acres
planjv-d in onions and 2500 hills
of early cabbage which are look-1
ing fine. Will plant about 1 acre j
in sweet potatoes. Have 5 bush-:
els of seed bedded. Have one
acre prepared to plant wut»r
melons and 1-4 acre in musk
> melons and cucumbers and a few:
vegetables of various other kinds, j
\ The live stock on the farm at j
present are as follows : one
large team of mules, one team of,
horses, one brood mare with colt, I
two driving horses, six milk
cows with one young calf, 13
head cattle and young heifers, 3
of which are expected to be fresh
soon, and 40 head of swine as
follows : one thorougbred Berk
shire male and two sows with 18
pigs eligible for register, five
pther brood sows will farrow
soon, sixteen shoats.
Have sold ' seven head cattle
and six shoats recently.
If we succeed in making son e
thing wort|i while out of our
Berkshire pigs we will have some v
of them on exhibition this sum
mer at some of the vari >us s a e
}/ Our sheep are looking fine,
, twelve old ones with 8 lam'>s.
' Have just installed and put in
to opertion a 12 dozen eg incu
bator with 144 eggs of thoro igh
bred Rhode Island Reds and the
machine is working perfectly
Our tools and machinery are
complete and up-to-date and we
have most everything needed
on a farm of this type from the
v;Sled to an automobile. We have
just finished making concrete
walks around the proprietor's
house and are putting in a gas
plant to light up the place.
pronpects are good for a
large apple crop buc think
and pears are killed.
If this escapes your waste
basket 1 may write again when
harvesting is completed.

FROM "JACK LEG."
Former Citixen of Stokes, Formerly
Opposed to Good Roads, Convert
ed By Seeing How Progressive
People Do. \
Spray, N. €., May 8.
Messrs. Editors :
As I promised you some time
ago I w ill write vou a short letter
on the good roads question,
which is one of the most import
ant questions before the people
of Stokes today. While I am
not a citizen of your county I
take a great interest in its affairs
for it is my old home county. I
want to say right in the start
that the only way to get good
j roads is to Day for them and the
j only way to get the money is by
taxation. Some will say that it
| will cost too much to build roads
'by taxation. It will not cost the
j citizens »>f the county as much
:to make good roads as it does
to travel over the bad roads and
' when you get your roads in good
fix it will not cost but little to
keep them so.
I want to tell some of my ex
perience with the roads in your
county a year ago last win
ter. I was in Stokes county and
I wanted a team to drive out
14 miles in the country, and I
had to pay ten dollars a-day
\vhen four dollars would have
been a reasonable price. I had
to pay six dollars bad road tax,
while many of your own citizens
have done the same, and that
will be the case until there is
a change in the system of work
ing the mails. Some will say
that they can not pay the tax.
Suppose the road tax was 90
cents on the poll and 30 cents
on the SIOO valuation of property,
the poll tax payer who does the
m st work on the roads would
have only !M) cents a year to
pay. while he has to work three
or four days for nothing and
nearly every man who owns
property is willing to pay his
part of tie taxes. I was once
as much opposed to working
roads by taxation as any man, j
but since I have lived in counties;
that the roads are worked by l
taxation I am convinced. That 1
is the only way to get out of!
mud and gullies and the man j
who is the most benefited is the
man that pays the most money. |
Well, Mr. Ed. as I am not a;
citizen f your county, but a
well Nushe'', I will clos.\

Is there anything in all this'
world that is of more importance!
to you than good digestion?
Food must be eaten to sustain
life and must be digested and
converted into blood. When the i
digestion fails the whole body
suffers. Chamberlain's Tablets!
are a rational and reliable cure
indigestion. They increase the'
flow of bile, purify the blood, :
strengthen the stomach, and tone
up the whole digestive apparatus'
to natural and healthy action. |

I SPEAKING AND PICNIC
■AT GERMANTON, MAY 20
Supt. J. Y. Joyncr and Others To
Be Present and Deliver Addresses
On Education Everybody In
Germanton, May 8. The
citizens of Germanton and sur
rounding community are respect
fully invited to attend a basket
picnic and public speaking at the
Academy in the town of German
ton, on Saturday, May 20th,
The subject for discussion is
the special school tax election for
the Germanton High School Dis
trict. Dr. J. Y. Joyner, Supt.
of Public Instruction, together
with at least one other able
speaker will deliver addresses
in behalf of the special tax. It
has been claimed by some that
the speaking would be a "one
sided affair," and we learn that
an effort is being made to keep
those away who are opposing the
tax. In this connection we want
to state that those of us who
favor the tax Jwill
ing thatjevery man be permitted
to hear argument both for and
against, and we therefore
cordially invite any one wishing
to oppose the tax to come and
speak against it. A fair divis
ion of time will be granted them.
We are reliably informed that
some misrepresentations are be
ing made regarding our bill for
special tax. We want those
corrected and no man in North
Carolina is better prepared to do
this than Dr. Joyner. Now let
those who are dealing in
misrepresentations or those who
are championing the opposition
come out and meet Dr. Joyner in
debate on the issue, or get |some
speaker to represent them, and
let the people hear both sides.
So let us all turn out and hear
the joint debate. The good
ladies are all requested to bring
well filled baskets and let us
serve a picnic dinner on the
Music will be furnished by
the Germanton string band.
