THE OPPORTUNITY RIGHT HERE AT HOME A good place to live seems t« be the desire of most num. Yet we too often fail to use propory judgment in making our selections. The thing that calls us generally is the accom* plishments of others. We rush where improvement* have already been wrought, where the roads, the bridges, the houses have already been built and paid for and the lanftx already cleared. We rush to tlw reaping* rather than to the sowing We had rather spend than to earn. We see people rush to the places of beauty and wealth, often passing gold en opportunities that they tlit ni.vN t might build up a good place to live. The real man is he who designs his place in society, social and business life in the solid rock and pecks it to perfection himself rather thun .to ft dapt the country and improvements of the other fellow, just because it is easier. What wc need to do is to seek the places of open opportunity; where we may be able to build, our! own cities and monuments. Then we should seek places of op portunity, such as soil, climate and! location. How about Eastern Carolinu as a! i good place to live, if the soil, climate] and location count? It is not u far statement to say that we outclass Florida and western North Carolina a long way. They may be good places to live and spend your money, but if you really want a good place to live and make your money stay where you are, the laws of economics make east ern North Carolina a good place to live in. There are few places,on earth that have -more advantage* in- fertili ty, transportation, climate, uniform rainfall, close to the best of markets, with purity of race, than eastern Car olina. The land that not only feeds itself but others. Those who are looking for a place to live and who are willing to work! for their living should come to east ern Carolina—a good place to live. FOREST CONSERVATION AND RE NEWAL CAMPAIGN Will Martin County join the forest conservation and renewal campaign to be conducted next week? Many people who are bom and reared among the" trees fail to appre ciate their importance and value to animal and plant life. A The trees furnish shelter for prac tically every living thing. Th? wild twit not only finds rest under their ■had* bat protection against the storm and cold. Man makes a further use •f the tree in building houses in which tolta. There i a nothing is all oi God's creation so generally used by every thing, both great and small, and •verywhera, a# the trei, except tlie air and the prater. / Then ft is important! that we con- serve the trees. We can plant u seed _ -jlimL Gikl will produce a tree, or we carrfurelesaly drop a match and burn down thousands thut have required u a ctintuyy for growth In some countries where they have -passed the wasteful stage, the forest is protected by laws equally ay strin gent as the laws which protect the barns, stores, and homes of the peo ; l' le - In our own -eountries wo have laws aguinst fires and forest destruction, - yet we do not enforce them very ' much. The actual loss by careless 1 and malicious (Ires in our \>wn coun • ty is many times greater each year * than from all the stealing done in the ' county; yet we i'md few lire cases on 1 the criminal docket, while we find the > same docket crowded with stealing ' cases. ' Timber experts say that it is easi ' ly possible for an acre of land to ' Kfow all the way from $1 to (!> in timber value* each year when proper care is taken and fires kept out. U takes five years to grow a long ' leaf pine live ne lics high, While it will grow 10 feet thf oixoiid five years, 1 This makes it very dirfieult to renew ' a long-leaf forest where the land is ' swept each year by tire. -The young and tender plant is nearly always de stroyed before it gets, a start; and, * again, where hogs range the long-lea!' *. ♦ pine is usuallj destroyed; the voting j plant to be gnatly relished by the hog, which root:i deep into the clay to get the tap root, of the young tree. I Two-thirds >!' all the land in Mui- J tin County is growing timber and i j every citizen of the county owes it to sj himself to assist nature all he can to ' help in the growth i. ad development 1 of the forests. s DEMOCRATIC CONVENTIONS IM POKTANT TO TtlE VOTER , Democratic conventions will be held . in every precinct in North Carolina , either tonight or Saturduy, according , to the Democratic plan of organiza . ; , The root of good government springy from the convention—the peo- AWNINGS" ' |K asss^'l M^k - ,J ', -.-' ■ , ; . ■ - V '.

We too often let the other fellow fix things and we do the * "cUssln' " afterwards. Conventions are just as essential to good government as seed are for the harvest, because the voice of the peo ple is .Democracy.
