During the juist year the college had an en rollment of 669, with 310 in the several courses in agriculture. There were 59 graduates. It is significant that nearly all of these yountf men had accepted good positions before their graduation. Hookworm Report We are in receipt of the Third Annual Report of The Rocke feller Sanitary Commission for The Eradication of Hookworm Disease, and it makes interest ing reading. The statistics show that of all the Southern States, North Carolina leads, having treated 111,872 persons in three years and making 181,144 micros copic examinations. Among the letters from physician printed therein, are those of Dr. J. B. H. Knight, of Williamston, and Dr. John D. Williams, of Everetts, who express themselves as heartily in accord with the work and note the wonderful benefits therefrom. There are numerous illustra tions showing patients in various parts of the South, and the con tr between those, before and after taking the treatment is marked. Men and boys, too-, unable to work or to attend school, were rendered capable of performing the duties of life and to enjoy same. There are several illustrations containing the faces of those en gaged in the work, among which can be seen that of Walter Jen kins, who is microscopist for on.i band of workers. Mr. Jenkins, after graduating here at the Graded School, received a posi tion and has done well in his line. It must not be decided that be cause North Carolina has had more work done in this line that her people are more afflicted. Such is not the case, but just simply because our State is fore most in any movement to help her people live better and happier lives. Better Times Coining The day is breaking The sun is rising— A better day is approaching— Lawlessness must go. The action of blind tigers, old men, young men, white men, black men, church members and sinners—yea bad men, in and about Williamston has become ■such a stench in the nostrils of all decent people, that their de mands are now to be complied with and whiskey selling must be checked. 'One of the most popular ways of procuring whiskey has been to have it shipped to Speller's Ferry and then freighted down in canoes. On last Saturday night when the boat passed up the river. Sheriff Crawford and Chief Edwarbs went aboard and found several ten-gallon kegs'consigned to parties in Wijliamston, but sent to the Bertie landing. They awaited the return of the consi gnees from the Ferry with the real goods as they knew that they had gone up ahead of the boat in order that they could get down in time for the Saturday night trade. But, alas, the wait was in vain for Sheriff Cooper of JUST RECEIVED A Gar Load of Wire rencin&. Galvaniz led Si Kubber Roof ing- Selling at a Low price. I Call to see us before buying. G. D.„ Garstarphen & Go. e Wilfiamston - - North Carolina ; Bertie was obeying the mandates lof the better class of good old I Bertie, and was out on the hunt I for the lawless. So when the 40 gallons marked to A. I). Coburn, Charlie Gurganus and Will Rob erson were landed, he proceeded to take-charge of it,-and likewise took Coburn and Gurganus over to the Bertie Public Boarding House for the lawless. Butßob erson succeeded in making his way down the river accompanied by a good paddler. He escaped the was arrested here Monday by Sheriff Crawford. All three men await trial- at the next term unless they jump their $500.00 bond. We hope that others will take heed and go into some other busi ness other than the illegal sale of liquor. "For as ye sow, so shall ye reap." And the reaping art often brings trouble. Letter Mrjj. Pattie Spears, Dear Daughter: - Your letter at hand and we were glad *to hear from you all. We are not well for my health has failed. Thank the Lord, I am able to keep up now, being much better than for some time. 1 have many things to be thank ful for. One thing the blind man could tell about Jesus, so can I. You said that I was writing to strangers or trying to get them saved. Sol am. You say Lotj carried his children out. Let us j see how many. Did Lot carry all i that would go? The rest and his i wife seemed to refuse to go. J There he plead for a little city' for God to save it. Jesus Christ saves as many as receive Him ori believe on His name. St. John Ist. Chapter. You spoke of your hard life in a cook kitchen. Remember I was hired to a slave owner for seven years; to go with the slaves to work; to support and educate children not my own; four years n the Southern Army. Glory be to God! I hope after all I can get to Heaven when life is over. I have had three children to ask me to pray for them in their last hours. They all died happy and were not afraid. That was one more than Lot carried out of Sodom. Two wives died happy and one turned back to Sodom. She is now a member of the Church striving to find the mount ains. After all some of die worst drunkards were reformfd. Some died happy. Glory to God lam still leaning on the Ever-' lasting Arms. Our text is fourth chapter and eighth verse of St. James: "Draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you." Counting my life not what could have been, yet could have been worse. I thank the Lord for my hope in Jesus, strong to deliver and mighty to save. Remember me kindly to all. "Write soon. Come when you will. Your father, John L. Cherry. Williamston, N. C. June 20. 1913.
