Washington, D. C, June 80. North
Carolina's agricultural statistics, given
out from the census bureau today, make
a fine showing for the State, . The in
crease in value of farm lands and farm
buildings for (he decade of 1900-1910
was wonderful. The value went from
$194,656, OuO in 190(3 to $465,715,000 in
1910 an increase of 134 per cent The
increase in the use of fertilisers was 173
per cent. There waa a 13 per cent de
crease) in the number of acres per farm.
In other words the North Carolina farm
has been reduced from 101 acres to 88
acres. This is a healthy sign. The
smaller the farm the better the farmer.
The total acreage fell off 2 per cent in
the ten years. ' ' ' ' ..
The average value of land per acre
Went from $6.24 to $15.29, making a
gain of 145 per cent, :. That is a remark
able showing for the Stale.

Peoples Bank Employs Every
Publicity Method To Trove
Some years ago a number of prog
ressive hanks in this country put Into
practice the periodical auditing of their
affairs by a committee of their direct
ors." This step waa felt to be ah ad
vance in the right direction : yet many
business men realized that there was
still room for improvement During the
past few years a further and final re
form has been made in bank auditing
and now the up-to-date, properly man
aged bank has adopted the plan of per
iodically turning over all its affairs in
to the hands of a responsible independent
accountant for complete and thorough
auditing; C'-.,.ii'-i'-i '3 i-V":r-;'. "V'v
, Apart entirely from the question,
important as 1t is. of the strictccur-
acy to the work of every employee of

a bank should have its affairs periodi

tided public accountant. ';V',;'-'-:-vV.i
From the standpoint of the bank's
customers and the . public generally
who, after all, have every right to be
tbe most interested in the matter, the
feeling that an experienced certified
public accountant, Vfree from either
sentiment or prejudice, interested in
nothing save his reputation for -strict
accuracy, .'fearing or owing allegience
to neither officers, board of directors,
executive committee or any body of
men in the bank either singly or collec'
ively, hiding 'nothing but on the con
trary anxious to discover everything
the feeling on the part of the public
that such an accountant has scrutinized
every detail of a bank's business and
pronounced the institution to be Bound
and well managed will produce a sense
of confidence in the bank that no
amount of facts or figures given out by
the bank itself can ever possibly se

OLD PROB USES ILL SIFT EX-
Farmers Can Get Weather Fore-,
cast Daily By Telephone, r
Free'of Cost , ,
Through the arrangement perfected j
between the United States Weathtr :
Bureau find tho Southern Bell Tele- j
phone Company, more Jian 25,000
Southern farmers will receive the daily
weatber reports by telephone begin
ning July 1st. .
The daily weather reports will be
furnished the Telephone Company bv
the weather bureau, and the report will
be read te tbe farmers by telephone'
operators. , At a given hour each dny
a general alarm will be sounded, calling
every farmer to the telephone. When
they are all assembled the report will
be read. Any. farmer who is not able
to answer the signal and hear tf.e re
port has tbe privilege of calling ' the
operator and securing the information.
Almost every farmer's telephone liho
connected with the Bell system has six
or more subscribers, and by reading the
report to each line the work can be
speedily accomplished. .
This is the first comprehensive and
systematic effort to. furnish this in
formation without cost to the f armors
of the South.' The spread of the tele
phone in the rural districts in thu past
few years has made it possible in retch
such a large number of farmers through
the Bell system, and the dissemination
of weather news by telephone is one of
the many practical uses for the tele
phone on the farm. ' ' . ' '
