Ileal Hog Calling
How marked is the difference be
tween the hog calling in the country
and that staged at a fair or show.
To go into the country just before the
sun fades, and to he far away from
the hum of motors and hear a car
rying sound from a mile or more away
is a real treat. The call is answered
when hundreds of the filthy animals
rush to the feeding place. There they |
act like hogs, and they don't even
seem to care a rap if they are hogs.
At the fair or show, the- calling is
practically the same with the excep
tion of the surroundings, but whav a '
different response there is. The aver-1
age spectator looks upon the contest
as a huge joke. How funny it Is to
see and hear one calling hogs when
there is none to call. While all the'
time this same spectator is tramp
ing up and down on his neighbor's (
toes; he generally stands with his hat
on and with hs elbows cocked up; ,
you see him at practically every pub
lic event. And though he fails to
answer when he hears the breeder's
call, he is a "hog"—just one of those
kind thats fail to answer to his own

Then, there are other places wher«
"hog calling" would be appropriate.
A few yells would not be out of
place on a hard-surfaced road lead
uig into the big cities. There are
many businesses where a hog would
rate as a gentleman beside the heads
of the business. And the worst part
of it all is when they sit and hear
the call for the lowly hog—they feel
justified in ignoring it themselves.

Hamilton, were in town yesterday.

Politics Losing Hold on People
Will th«re be my change now that
elections are over ? As far as the com
mon mass is concerned, everything
will remain the same, no doubt. Na-
tional politics have, become of little
consequence to the people generally in
this part of the country. They look
upon the happenings at the Nation's
Capital as though they were those of
a foreign country. Of course, the
presidential election creates a great
deal of interest, not that it matters
much to the average voter but be
cause it is considered an honor to
The highest order of "doubt" is
when a nominee an office fears
he will not be elected, even though
there be no opponent.

pure damn foolishness."

sews in the briny deep, plows the

Here in North Carolina interest
lags because the Democrats know
their position to be stable, and no
competition can take place as long as
there is a party in name only.
Competition is the life of trade, and
it can be said to be the same in the
fuse of politics. Where there is no
opposition, it appears useless to work.
Where there is no work, little can be
expected, to it's wake up Republi
cans or lie down Democrats.
