THE DEEP FURROW.
It pays to plow deep,' The W Iming
ton Star, which is alert ' for all new
wrinkles and developments in the field
of sericulture, says:
"The Kansas Department of Agricul
Hire has demonstrated the value of
rieen nowine bv actual tests that
apeak for themselves. The expert
ment was made in growing wheat
When the land was plowed three inches
deep in the preparation of the land
the vield was 16 bushels per acre,
minimum, and 22 bushels, maximum
When plowed seven inches deep the
first yield was 33 bushels and the second
35 bushels. ,
Thus doubling the plowing depth
results in doubling the yield. We
presume that as a matter of course
to double the plowing depth is to
increase the expense but it would
certainly lack a great deal of doubling
it. The deep furrow seems to be quite
the thine for our farmer friend if he
wants to increase his income.
A LIVELY CONTEST AHEAD.
Though it will be in 1916, three
years distant, before the people of
North Carolina hear the choice of the
Democracy for its candidate for Gov
ernor, there is frequent reference in
newspaper items and in editorials as
to how the line up will be when the
race for nomination begins to make
the dust fly.
It is a habit we have in North Caro
lina of talking about "the aext Gover
or" as soon as a newly-elected Gov
ernor declares his inaugural address,
and sometimes even before this. It is
often done in the way of a "feeler,
so in "trying out" before the public
the popularity of some favorite son
and it's a pretty good way. The pa
pers and the people are at this wo.k
right now, and it is interesting to note
the growth of the list of those who
are held to be eligible.
The Sanford Express of this week
gives the longest list of possible can
didates for the Democratic nomina
tion that we have yet seen, that paper
"A number of North Carolinians
are being mentioned in connection
with the Democratic nomination for
Governor in 1916. Rumor says that
Associate Justice W. R. Allen of the
Supreme Court and A W. McLean
of Lambert on, will be candidates for
the office of Chief Executive. Both
men have strong and Influential friends
Judge Allen, on account of his long
service on the Supreme Court Bench,
knows practically every influential pol
ticJan in the State. Mr. McLean has
been active politically for the past
few years, and was a tower of strength
in the Wilson-Simmons organisation
in North Carolina. It is believed that
Attorney-General T. W. Bickett, Sec
retary of State J. Bryan Grimes, and
Treasurer B. R. Lacy will be in the
running for Governor. Close friends
of H. A Page have mentioned him
as a likely candidate. With any t hr, c
or aH of these men in the contest, the
race will not be uninteresting."
That "there will be others" is, of
course, a matter of conjecture, but
the time being long before the entries
will all be in, it may b regarded as
almost certain that the 1st given
above will be increased aa the days
fy. That the contest foe the next
Democratic nomination will be lively
cannot be doubted. Ralesgh News and
"I SHOULD WORRY."
Of aH the imbecile .Uag, and the
most of it is' imbecile, aim phrase, "I

aad lacking in excuse fat existence.
The Ohio State Journal tells of all
Interesting incident concerning it. It
aye that In St. Lows two women,
next door neighbors, got Into a quarrel
over a dog and one of them by using
this slang expression over and over

fimpling on the flowers of the other
woman, or snarling at her child or
something of the sort.
The St. Louis affair got into
court. The defendant accounted for her
use of the milk bottle by declaring
that the phrase hurled at her was a
deliberate slur and meant, "I don't
care what you say or think." Wit
nesses, called doubtlesi to testify g
the capacity of experts, gave varying
testimony as to what the much used
slang expression meant. One said
"It is a contemptuous phrase used
to show disrespect." Another said
"It is a good-natured sally, containing
no malice." The woman who was
assaulted said that it was a playful
remark and a meaningless popular
saying of the day.
The jury in the case returned a
verdict for the defendant presumably
because of the insulting and tantalizing
reiteration of the expression rather
than because of the offence that would
have been involved in a single utter
ance of it.
The phrase really means the reverse
of what it says, signifying as it is
generally used that, whatever it is
that suggests the remark is a source of
worry to any and to all persons
rather than to the speaker. But, as
before stated, it is slang of the most
pronounced type and really should not

GOVERNMENT BY THE MANUFACTURERS.
Instead of government by the
people it would have been government
by the National Association of Manu
facturers if that organization could
have had its way, according to the
evidence which is now reaching Congress
And no doubt it has been more a case
of government by the aforesaid asso
ctation than many people have supposed.
It remained for Wilson, Bryan and
men like them to come along and put
an end to the partnership between
the government and business. When
one comes to think about it there is
really no more reason why the govern
ment should foster the business of the
wealthy business man than there is
that it should boost that of the poor
man. The latter and his fellows to
gether pay as much to support the
government as the comparatively few
rich men in whose interest the govern
ment has been legislating.
MACADAM PURE WASTE. ?
The good roads problem is more of a
problem than it appeared to be some
years ago. Ten years ago the prevailing
opinion was that all you had to do
to a road was to macadamize it and it
would give practically no more trouble
Little was thought about wear and tear
But with the advent of the automobile
in large numbers the element of repair
to macadam roads became a big item
and now wc are finding expressions like
this from the New York World:
'The Governors of both Kansas and
Missouri are to 'put on overalls
in the cause of good roads. Meanwhile
an expert tells New York state, which
is issuing $100,000,000 of fifty year
bonds for macadam roads, that maca
dam is pure waste. Governors might
better put on thinking caps than over
We fancy that the experts are exag
gerating a bit when they say that the
building of macadam road is pure waste
But, plainly, it is not the perfect or
even the approximately perfect road
Col. Mulhall is certainly a handy
man in eliciting denials. He has been
consigned to the Ananias Club so many
times already that the process must
have quite lost its novelty if indeed
ever had any.
The expected happened when the
President accepted the resignation of
Henry Lane Wilson, ambassador from
this country to Mexico. These two
Wilsons are very much unlike in their
sympathies and it was not to be ex
pected that they could work together.

For the first time in the history of mo
tion pictures a film making company
had wrecked two trains. The incident
which cost the Vitagraph Company of
America more than $35,000 will be made
the central feature of a film drama. Six
camera men, lined along the track,
cranked their machines as the trains
sped on. One operator, Harry A. Keep
ers, escaped death by three feet when a
twenty-pound engine step buried itself
in the ground at the edge of his stand.
The players of the company rode to
the scene of the wreck-to-be early yes
terday. The trip was planned quietly
and no dwellers in the district knew of
the coming "catastrophe." The several
that were eventually attracted wondered
when they saw heaped beside the com
pany's special a pile of fearsome looking
dummies, painted' in ghastly coloring
and destined to become vistims of the
The wreck was staged and directed by
Ralph W. Ince, director of the com
pany, and A. V. Smith, one of the pro
prietors. Aiding them was C. M. Him-
melberger, Superintendent of the Rari
tan River Road. Difficulty was experi
enced in so timing the starting of the
engines that their collision would occur
in focus of the cameras. Anticipating
trouble, Mr. Ince stationed his six oper
ators a hundred yards apart. If only
five had been there it is likely the
wreck would have gone unfilmed from
any advantageous point, as, thio igh a
miscalculation, the smash took place in
line with the furthest camera stationed.
This machine was operated by

crank during the pelting of broken
steel about him. Not even when the
heavy engine step whizzed down close
to him, did he stop the motion of his
hand. Officials of the company last
night asserted he must get the credit
for having saved the company from
losing the $35,000 invested.
After the steam hsfl cleared from the
wreck, the company's 200 players placed
themselves within and close to the
outrides of the cars, qjhen a car was fired
and the "rescue" work was begun.
Dummies and actors alike were handled
limp from the burning wreckage, while
women "survivors and bereaved "rela

who in real life is E. K. Lincoln, bat
tered his way from the depths of the
wreckage, stared dazedly about him,
changed coats with a dummy and then
hurried to the "side lines" to assure as
sociates that "it sure is hot inside."
When all was over but the flare of
the still burning coaches, the company
settled down under the trees to beer
and sandwiches. The play was played
