Support Your Home New
A good local newspaper is one of
the surest signs of a progressive
commnnity and it is to every far
mer's interest to do what he can to
make his paper a good
paper. It tells him things which
he should know and which no other
paper can tell him. Often it will
be the best advertising medium he
can use and if the editor realizes
that the farmers in his territory are
trying to help him make a good
paper, be is more than likely to be
willing on his part to do all be can
to advance the interests of the rural
sections. We realize that too many
local papers give practically all
their attention to the town and
neglect the country districts, but
we wonder sometime if this is not
almost as mueh the farmers' fault
as it is the paper's. Get in touch
with your local paper. Send in to
it any item of news you may have.
Let the editor know about any
good farming that is being done in
your neighborhood. Help him to
see that the prosperity of a town is
founded upon the prosperity of the
way yon can help him make a bet
ter paper and enable him to be of
more service to you and to tbe
community.—The Progressive Far

Saint John's Day
This time honored celebration
will be held this year at Oxford
Orphanage, Oxford, N. C., on Sat
urday June 22ud, instead of Mon

This has come to be one of the
most representative gatherings
which occurs in our State. Each
year, for.a great many, it hag been
the custom for the Grand Lodge pf
Masons to hold a Special Communi
cation at the Orphanage. In this
way this occasion has been the
means of bringing together large
crowds, and friends from all over
State have begun to look forward
to It with great pleasure.
Each year the crowds stem to
get larger. Last year it was esti
mated that 10,000 to 12,000 people
attended. Preparations are now
begun looking to the entertainment
of even larger cumbers than usual.
The railroads have made arrange
ments to put on sale reduced rate
tickets and to run Bpecial excursion
trains on all the roads on that day
coming into Oxford.
The address of welcome will be
delivered by Mr. T. G. Stem, of
Oxford N. C., and the oration by
Rev. F. H. T. Horsefield, Rector
of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church,
Oxford, N. C.
»The inspiration of these occas
ions has reached and tendered
many hearts as they behold the
great work being done for the Or
phan children of our State. The
location is one of the most attrac
tive in the State and the Institution
is the oldest and one of the largest.
Body of Man Found
In the Windsor Ledger of last
week, it was reported that the body
of a white man was found washed
ashore near Avoca on the Sound.
The skull wa crushed }and several
teeth knocked out. It is supposed
to be the body of the man that
passed down the Roanoke River
and was tied up both at Hamilton
and Jamesville. The Corouer of
Bertie held an inquest but there
was nothing by which tbe person
could be identified, the body hav
ing ou only a shirt.
A Card
This is to certify that Foley's
Honev and Tar Compound does
not contain any opiates, any habit
forming drugs, or auy iugredients
that aould possibly harm its users.
On the contrary, its great healing
and soothing qualities make it a
real remedy for coughs, colds and
irritations of the throat, chest and
lnngs. The genuine is In a yellow
package. Ask for Foley's Honey
and Tar Compound and accept no
substitute, Saunders & Fowden.
Died at RobersonviHe
The death of Mrs. Maggie Sals
bury Whitfield, wife of Mr. David
Whitfield, occared at Robersonvllle
Tuesday night. She was a youngL
woman being about thirty years'
old and was married last year. For
years sbe with her brother and
mother had been living in Robery
sonville, having moved there from
the home place near Hassells. Sbe
was the only daughter of the late
Augustus and Rosa Salsbury and
was possessed of splendid qualities
of bead and heart. Friends and
relatives throughout the county
sympathize with the bereaved hus
band in hfc sore affliction.
The fuoeral services were con
ducted by Rev. N. H. Shepherd,
of the Missionary Baptist Church,
on Wednesday afternoon. A large
numbet* of friends paid the last
mark of respect to the dead and
floral offerings covered the mound.
The interment was in the Cemetery
at Spring Green Church.
The Potato Crop
The farmers in this section have
to a great extent ceased to plant
Irish potatoes for shipping purposes.
Two years the crop sold at such a
low price that U discouraged peo
ple. But this is true as a
whole, yet there are some who have
continued planting for early ship
ment and when a year comes when
the price is good, a neat little bank
account i 9 secured for a rainy day.
Last year the number of barrels in
this immediate section was distres
singly small though good stock
brought $4 00. A small acreage
here this year is bringing good re
turns. If the farmers had seen
their opportunity and planted fair
sized crops, then the condition
would have been much better.
The men who succeed at farming
never allow themselves to be caught
in the reverse of prices. If a crop
is low-priced one year, they go
right on with the planting the suc
ceeding season. One of the most
successful farmers in this section—
one who began life in a very hum
ble way and without a cent to in
vest, made bis money, about $30,-
000, by raising cotton every yeaf
even when it reached its lowest
margin. He put in about the same
namber of acres and sold it when
the market reached the highest
mard. It is true that he produced
other crops, but it is also true that
he made his money on cotton when
the price was low. The craze for
high prices has taken hold of the
world and one failure puts some
men almost out of business because
they have not the courage to try
again and again.
One Turner in Martin County,
Mr. J. L. Wynn, who lives near
Everetts, is a very successful pota
to raiser and he plants each year.
This season be had eight acreo—
three of which failed to give any
results, and from the sale of the
crop produced he realized over
$1,400. Then those acres will
produce another crop, so one can
readily see where he succeeds where
others fail. It is not safe to be
come discouraged with the splendid
opportunities found in farming.
Mrs. Lela Love wife of Wiley
Love, a farmer living near Covena,
Ga., says: "I hare taken Foley
Kidney Pills and find them to be
all vou claim for them. They gave
me almost Instant relief when my
kidneys were sluggish and inactive
I can cheerfully recommend them
to all sufferers from kidney troubles
