Farm-Life School .t Teaches Prac-

' , ods. "V. ';.
The Journal yesterday asked Repre
sentative R. A, Nunn about the pro
posed Farm Life 8chool for Craven
county and he had the following to say;
The establishment of Farm-Life
Schools" has for many years been discus
sed by the thoughtful farmers and the
leading educators of North Carolina.
The late Cbas. D. Mclver, Dr. F. A.
Aldeiman, J..Y. Joyner and others in
augurated the revival which met with
wonderful development after the elec
tion of Chas. B. Aycock as Governor.
Since 1900 the progress made in our
public schools has been remarkable. We
have lengthened the term, have built
hundreds - of new school houses, have
provided better teachers and have es
tablished training schools in order that
the teachers themselves may be bettei
orenared for their work. The Stale
University , has been provided for as
liberally as the resources of the State
would permit. The State Normal school
from a small beginning ha, within the
past few sears become a great, institu
tion. The Indians and the negroes have
been provided with schools, and money
has been appropriated to maintain them
But in the general educational fysiem
we have not provided schools that are
situated where the great agricultural
class may receive the benelUss as many
other States have done While we have
agricultural and mechanical colleges for
white and colored races, these institu
dons are situated in Raleigh and Greens
boro and only a very small pr cent of
tbe boys have an opportunity of attend
ing them. Only a small per cent of the
boys of this State ever reach the Uni
versity, A & M College at Rale'gh, or
any of the other colleges in the State or
elsewhere. Only a pnvill per cent of
the girls ever reach the State Normal
School at Greensboro, or any of the
other higher schools for girls in North
Carolina or elsewhere. The gap in our

it is necessary for the products of the

peal as strongly to the average boy on

comforts of life. As long as a farm

the same time has to give mote time

"I know of a farmer In one of out
counties who owns land worth some
thing like $100,000. For more than fifty
years he has walked a quarter of a mile

fortable as can be imagined; every one
of his boys have left the aee and gone
to work for lumber concerns and rail
road companies where they can escape
the unnecessary hardships of living im
posed on them by the old man at home.
One of his boys learned something about
putting pipes together, ami having made
enough money out of the railroad com
pany to buy a little piece of land, erec

pipes and faucets, and, haying enough
energy to look around,, located a water

the house, laid fcipes between the house

Ultimate success was made by Francis
co I, Madero, Jr. the provisional Presi
dent, in an interview.
The interview, was an amplification of
one which he gave a few dsys ago.
Madero declared he waa confident of
"the final triumph of arms in the over
throw of Disz."
In all Northern Mexico, he said, the
insurrecto movement was spreading un
til now the Federal troops were con fin
ed to The garrison towns, "at which
the insurrectos were preparing to strike
a decisive blow."
Referring to his father and Gustavo

with Finance Minister l.imantour with
a view of ending the war, the insurrec
tionary President intimated strongly
that they had no authority to act for

institutions of learning. This gap: has
nartlv been fi led in the towns of tbe
State by the establishment of high
schools, but only in a few communities
of the State have good schools been es
tablished for the people outs de of
towns.' The Farm Life Schools are in
tended to mend this gap in our educa
uonal system. In advocating the es -lahlishment
of the Farm Life Schools,
it is not intended to admit in any way
that the schools which webavflfnil -d to
accomplish their purpose, on the othe
hand, the men and women who -have
been,' and are new advocating the Farm
Lift Schools, desire to see all the other
ichools of the State improved and bet
tered by lengthening their terms ar.d
their school property improved and add-
d to. As most of the property end
most of the people in the State live
outside of the towns of the State, it ne
ceasarily follows that all the public
schools are supported in a greater d
gree by the people living outside of the
towns, and it is only fair that the coun
try people should have such schools as
they demand, if there be any necessity
or good reason why the same should be
established. . The State Association of
Farmers is earnestly advocating the es
tablishment of Farm Life Schools. Its
representatives led by Dr. Alexander of
Mecklenburg county assisted by Dr,
Hill, President of A & M College at
Raleigh, and by the State Superintend
ent of Public Instruction and other pub
ic spirited men of the State, appeared
before the General Assembly of 1911
and advocated the bill providing for th
establishment - of Farm Life Schools,
and the members of the General As
sembly were convinced that such schools
were very much to be desired, and the
bill, after careful consideration, was
passed and the same became a law. The
law provides in substance that such
school may he eatabiuhtd in a county
the people now whom will provide
suitable site and equipment consisting
of building and lands worth not lea than
$26,00, and in addition thereto provide
fund of not less than $500 per annum
for the support of the school. . 1 Upon
such provision being made by thepeopt
of a county, the State will ; contribute
$2300 per annum to assist in the mala
tenance of the school. It Is propone 4 to

the method of farming and running

This is an age of progress. The crim
inal courts of Craven county are block
ed for tbe trial of misdemeanors that
would be disposed of by the establish
ment of this court, Witnesses who
heretofore hava to tit around the court
house one solid week to give testimony
in torn misdemeanor and have their
witness ticket paid by the county, under
the new system, would only be taken
from their work an hour or two at the
most Instead of having to serve on the
grand jury 000 ' Week, the grand jury
would be done with its work in two days.
