Franklin, N. C. May 1Q. ? When J.
M. Gray, assistant director of exten
sion for the State College and State
Department of Agriculture, came to
Macon County sometime ago to take
up the matter of having a county
agent employed in the County, he
found some opposition. The farmers
wanted the work but the CountyCom
missioners couldn't see how it would
pay. So badly did the farmers want
an agent, however,- that nine lead
ing men volunteered to sign notes of
$100 each to help defray the expenses
of the work and if at the end of the
year, the agent did not show at least
$900 profit by his work, they would
pay this amount to the county as a
reimbursement for the county's part
of the agent's salary.
John V. Arrcndale was secured as
farm ageut and he went to work on
Junuary first of this year.
The other day, he held a cooper
ative sale of poultry .The results show
that 2.377 chickons were sold from
193 farms. The fowls weighed 91,
963 pounds and were sold for $2,?
085.67. Most of these fowls were
simply culls from the general flccks
found over tho county. The average
pricc offered for them locally was
live cents a pound for the old rooe
ers and 15 cents a pound for the
host hens. John Arrendale secured
an average of about 21 eents a pound
?n the whole lot, and at one sale
showed iu actual dollars and cents
thct he was worth at least $900 to
his folks. " !
he is. planning another sale
for May 23* ihen he hopes to do bet
ter because ha will probably have
more birds to sell. More people arc
now (interested in culling out their
N?ld stuff and saving the best birds

The following, spoken about Sarah,
i church member, was overheard:
''No, I would not say that Sarah be
longs to the church. I know that is
the way it is usually said, but if
words mean anything' it is not right
to violate their meaning. Sarah does
not belong to the church, and when
she joined it she had no idea of reai
belonging to it. Her time does not
u<r t- it; her friendships do not
bull ng to it ; her money does not be
un t" it; ! er ambitions do not be
ig to it. Sarali belongs first, last
and all the time to hereself.
How many Sarah's are there?
H<?w many l>ejung to the church?
Paul, had a right to say he belonged
to the church for he said '.'Behold,
\ go bound in the Spirit to Jerusa
lem", and "Necessity is laid upon!
me". But how many of those who)
make np the membership of the |
church to-day really hold themselves
at the service of the' church f
An editorial in TheSaturday Even
ing Post for May 5 uncovers a w6ak
spot in the church. 'Here is the sen
tence, ' ' Men wonder what is the mat
ter with the church, the real trouble
ship of God. There is not the sl}ght
of religion or church attendance that
~t doesn't count". There is nothing
that will take the. place of the wor
ship of God. There is n^jt the light
est chance to work out the high
[ schemes of social betterment being
devised all the time unless we can
feed that- spirit of betterment on the
united worship of God. A very pit
able spectacle is the' church member
?vho stands off and makes his Phar
isaical fling at the church. He is the
church's woiHt enemy. A smart
phrase that you will often hear is.
1 believe in Christianity but not in
churchianity. I am sure Jesus would
not have said that for he said, "1
build my ohurch and the gates of
hell shall not prevail against it".
What we need to hear is the mem
bership of the churches saying, "I
believe in Christ and the church".
That is ,our church members ought

? Our advertisers will be interested
in a clipping which The JOURNAL
recently received from* the Division
of Publications of the Agricultural
Extension Service at Raleigh. It in
believed that the method of attract
ing attention to goods for sal? as
exemplified by Defoe in his tale
about Robinson Crusoe 'could be well
followed by some of our advertisers:
"Robinson Crusoe was both a
pioneer and successful advertiser.
True,, there were no newspapers at
that time, but he 'knew the value and
necessity of attracting attention to
his important business, and that
without the support of others his
venture would prove a failure. He
also believed in changing his "copy"
often, so when his first flag (a shirt)
was whipped to pieces by the wind
and weather Crusoe put another gar
ment on the pole, and he kept at it
until he got what he wanted, a ship.
' ' Suppose he had stopped with the
failure of his first flag,, as some mer
chants do with one advertisement, on
the plea that 'advertising doesn't
pay'. Crusoe would have returned to
dust and it would have been scatter
ed upoi the waters and lost. The
moral is : Put out your signal and
keep changing its style. In other
words, use your local newspaper re
gularly and systematically and you
will get what you want and deserve."
