Since the Days of Baron

tied This County Has
Been Famous For Its Fei -tile
Soil A Paradise For
the Farmer and a Good
Place to Live for All
When old Baron Christopher De
Qrnfeni led and his Swim settlers
saikta up the river Neuse away back
In 1710, (bey unknowingly lauded
on one of the most fertile ipoU along
the Atlantic coast, a spot which need
ed only the touch of the ploughshare
to cause it to blossom forth in
yield of agricultural products which
rival those of the far famed valley
of the Nile and whlc h are unsurpassed
at any spot in theis country, for it
was in Craven county that these
doughty settlers decided to oast
their lot and from that day to this
Craven's remarkable agricultural abil
ities have been talked and written
about.
Its Location.
Craven county is ideally located
in every sense of the word. Watered
by two mighty rivers and their num
berless tributaries, located in a tem
perate zone . where snow and frost
are practically unknown, this section
is Indeed blessed and is in fact the
El Dorado for the farmer and the
man who makes it bis life work to
reap from the soil the mighty for
tunes which it contains.
Early History.
For two hundred yoars Craven
has yielded up to the ploughman a
rich harvest year in and year out.
Early in its civilized history farming
was done on a rather small scale, but
as time grew on apace and the popu
lation increased, the number of the
tillers of the sbil also grew and it be
came known as one of the greatest
farming sections in the State. v Fff
ty years ago line farms were to be
found on every side and many stately
colonial homes were surrounded by
hundreds of acres which were in part
in cultivation.
The mighty conflict between the
States caused the county a set -back
and for years there was a spirit of
lethargy manifest and t he -fertile
tion had for the nonce a brief respete
Time passed on and again it grwi
and prospered and today it is furnish
ing and is willing to furnish to all, the
means of growing rich in worldly
goods and to him who cares only for
enough to live comfortably, it affords
a bounty.
It has been ssrtdtrc,vjn;-;truth
thsitrflcttehvhstt ythg can be
grown here,- from a tropical -plant to
the gray "ntoss of the frozen tundras
of the North. Be this as it may, the
faet remains that. the farmer, the
average agriculturist and the man
who uses scientific methods exclus
ively, finds it adaptable to almost
any variety of produce he may wish
to raise. In the past cotton, corn,
sweet potatoes, cabbage, strawberries,
Irish potatoes, and other like vege
tables and grains, have been grown
here with profit. A few yeais ago it
wat discovered that the soil was well
adapted to the growing of the re
nowned bright leaf tobacco and since
that times the farmers have planted
wide acres in this weed.
Trucking Section
The blimstih conditions here in
Craven are sueh as to make the first
truck crops of lettuce, strawberries
radishes and other such products
mature just between the time that
the Florida pioduot is exhausted and
the crop from other sections begins
to reach the market and this causes
the farmers to secure good prices for
the products, which they are able to
furnish to the world.
Following the first crop of early
truck the more staple crops, such as
peps, Irish potatoes are ready for
pie king and digging and forwarding
to the marts of the world. Then
come, the corn, the sweet potatoes
she watermelons and eantdoupes
and In fart it is just one thing after
another until the fall when the to-
baoco comes on, and then the farmer
lays aside his ploughshare and lakes
a uessjed rest and enjoys the fruits
of his labors.
Needs People.
Craven's real need at present is
more people. Many of the (arias are
SOW too large and could with profit
be cut up into smaller sections, and
made to pay greater returns than Is

The boy grew to manhood, and was
killed in a feud at Claremore. His

bride to Texas and turned outlaw.
In time a charge of murder was lodged
against him. He was assassinated.
"She'll Ruin Your Boys."
Reed had lived with "Uncle Tom
Starr on the South Canadian, and at
his death Belle Starr went there from
Texas with her two children. A kins
man of the Starrs saddled his horse
and rode a hundred miles to give
"Uncle Tm" advice, when he. heard
that Belle was making her home with

Austin. Texas, May 15. la Aus
tin and other towns of Texas jitney
service for the exclusive use of ne
groes has been introduced. These
ears are liberally patronised, and the
new service is having the effect of
greatly reducing the receipts of the
street railway companies.
When the "Jim Crow" law, which
requires that negroes and whites be
seated separately in street cart, was
passed a few years ago, a movement
was inaugurated by negroes to boy
cott the street cars. For a time this
organized plan of showing disapprov
al of the race separation law had
strong support on the part of the
negroes, but gradually they again be
gan patronizing the street railway
system.
Introduction of the jitney automo
biles came as a welcome relief to
many of the negroes, who object to
being seated in the rear ends of the
street cars. The jitney automobiles
for negroes are owned and driven hy
men-of that race. They run between
the different negro communities in
town and the business center. It it
stated that' these negro jitneys are
making more money than those for
white people.
Rapid transit jitney service is be
ing extended to interurban traffic.
Nearly every town in' Texas of
more than 2,000 population it now
equipped with jitney automobiles.
Plans for the extension of existing
street railway lines and the construc
tion of new ones have been aban
doned. Councils of the municipali
ties are hesitating about imposing un
bearable burdens upon the jitneys,
for the reason that the new transpor
tation service is in great popular
favor, despite the financial injury it
is doing street railway companies.
