Uphold Marriage Sacredness
People are Retting better. The refusal of our
legislature to make out divorce laws nothing more
tlian a petty farce proves it. The enactment of the pro
pos it bill requiring only three year*' separation in
steScl of five for divorce grounds, would have meant
about the same thing that horse-trading means, be
caMse.it meant nothing more or less than legalizing
swaping lovers at the will of either party,.
All "moral forces should commend our legislature
for standing for more > sacredness in marriage.
Our Tariff Working Well for Others
Our attitude toward the tariff has placed us in
nations of the old world. They are now building up
trade with South America, a business that we once
Our attitude toward the tariff has placed up in
about the same position that selfish children some
times find themselves when they become so selfish that
other children refuse to play with them. Our tariff
laws have become to be so one-sided and selfish that
other nations are beginning to. ignore us.
What we need to do is establish fair trade ex

United Stares and Russia
The I'nited States and Russia come nearer com
paring with each other in size, population and re
sources than any' other two great nations. We claim
perfeit freedm, first class transportation on water,
land and in air. the best of machinery and more
money than any other country. We say that Russia
has no government and is backward in every way.
Suppose we look down the bread I nes in our " in
fect' country and then turn and look down the bread
lines in "imperfect" and despised Russia. And when
we do that, we will hase one more thing" to brag
about for our bread lines are just about ten times as
long as those in Russia.
Then suppose we turn to the crime records of the
two countries, and when we do that we will find our
book ten times as thick as Ru-sia s.
When we face the cold facts, we are forced to con
clude that we are not telling the whole truth when we
say our government is the best and that Russia's gov-
ernment is the worst.

day of July 1930 and recorded in

o'clock noon at the Courthouse door

highest bidder, a one half interest in ;
the following land to-wit: |
Lying and being in Goose Xe»t
English and American Mill Owners
Mill owners in England are not only wiser but are
also fairer than those in America. When the English
tried to force workers to increase their duties, 250,-
000 workers refused to obey, and the mill doors were
locked. Now the mills are inviting all workers back
| at the same wage scale and to the same duties. "The
owners jssued the following, statement: "We consider
! ourselves obligated to take a broad, national view of
the situation. We realize the inconsistency of the
the situation in which we seek to increa|e our orders,
j by participating in the textile exhibiton and at the
same trhe show the world our folly by continuing a
deadlock over a relatively minor in the industry."
In America, conditions are different. Soldiers are
i gathered to suppress strikers, and owners refuse to
confer with laborers. All rules are made in the of
fices of the mill owners, and the force of the civil and
j military authorities are lent to enforce them.
One of our greatest troubles today is the fact that
I a money man standslnearer our government than the
man without money.
Everybody know^ there are more avenues for the
' rich to the. push button than there are for the poor.
Prosperity checks are now very popular, partly be
cause we need prosperity and because they work much
faster than ordinary money.
One,ten dollar check recently paid 2,000 worth of
debts in Tarbqro, The man to whom the check was
made, endorsed the instrument and immediately paid
it to a man he owed, who, in turn, did the same
thing, the check finally passing through 200 hands
and paid $2,000 worth of debts in a few days.
If the owners would put their money to work in a
similar manner, half of all the country's private debts
could be' cancelled in a week.
We would like to see a similar campaign fostered
by j?very person who has a dollar and owes it. We
choke credit and smother business by holding money
in our jMickets when we owe it to some near neigh
bor who needs it.
We are willmg to start the ball rolling. Any one
paying us a dollar is assured that we will haVe it in
circulation again within an hour.

Get More for Small Production
The National Fertilizer association recently re
leased figures proving that by the use of fertilizer
more profitable crops may be grown. The com
puri >; they furnish certainly prove their point. .
Then i no doubt about the fact that proper fertil
izing is the proper thing to do, but on the other hand
when t lie farmer attempts to make too much crop by
Ihe i r of fertilizer it prostrates him financially. He
iii it i nly loses money farming, but he goes further
and 1 sea his land for debt. He is unable to pay for
the fertilizer used in making the big crop.
1 he country that has attempted to force crops by
high fertilizing is broke today. The use of fertilizer
is just one of those things that looks good, but turns j
This L the year to slow up, and use a little less j
fertilizer. Give the plants more room and let the
seasons and the land have a chance to help the far
mer. If we make a small production, we will get more
for what we do raise.

A Good Example
i That Story from Lapeer, Mich,
telling about five boys who were ar
rested for a series of p;tty thefts
should be of interest to all fathers
and mothers. These youngsters were
ordered into court but before the
trial the fathers requested the judge
to let them have a little talk with the
boys. This met with the boys. This
met with the approval of. the judge
and the boys yere taken io the wood
shed and given an old fashion licking,
i The judge was satisfied artd put them
all on probation. the parents
not taken this course the court would
probably have sent the lads to a re

and leave>as adults with a mark that

Sometimes youngsters can I*
corrected by little quite talks and
sometimes these talks have little ef
fect. Probably there are boys in our
reform schools today because their
j parents did not believe in the old ■
'maxim "spare the rod and spoil the
|child." Parents can do far more for
j their wayward lads than any court.
But when they fail to do their duty j
i the court must take a hand.
Once when 1 was a youngster I
said some unkind things to one. of ,
Imy sisters and my father heard me j
and gave me a nice switching. I was
careful about my remarks after that. |
On another occasion he made such an J
impression on me that for sometime a

came bold again. But my older bro-j /i

long as 1 live I will never forget that
chase across our cotton [xitch. That (

GOOD PROFIT IN
i HOGGING CORN
Grow Com and Feed It To
The Hogs To Make
A Profit in 1931
| • '
i Grow corn, feed it to hogs and make
money in 1931 is the suggestion W.
i, W. Shay swine extension specialist at'
State College, is seeking to broadcast
S over North Carolina this winter.
s "There is no mystery in feeding corn
e to hogs for a good profit," says Mr. |
Shay. "The idea is not patented nor,
copyrighted and if the plan of feed-J
5 ing is fotlowed systematically it will
5 make money for the operator. The 1
s corn and hog combination is about thei
, only bright spot in North Carolina'
' agriculture this year and beginning
with 1931, the system should be made
• a permanent part of farming operations
I on every farm where as much as 35
3 bushels of corn an acre can be pro-
Mr. Shay points out that 35 bushels
of corn should be easy to produce,
j None of the 60 or more contestants in
I the Atlantic Coast Line 5-acre corn
: contest made less than 50 bushels last
j season and the 4-H club boys enrolled
' in the Chilean Nitrate of Soda contest
l made from 80 to over 100 bushels an
i acre by following good methods.
Club boys generally doubled the an
nual average for the State. This all
indicates the ease with which-good
yields of corn may be produced.
If this corn is hogged down as was
done by three good farmers in eastern j
Carolina last year it will pay 800
percent increase in profit over the old
method of harvesting and selling it
as grain.' lit addition, valuable plant
food will by left on the soil for build-'
ing up the land. Mr Shay has worked
out an interesting set of figures show
ing how the three men made their
profits last season and will send a copy
free to any person desiring to begin
( the wyrk this year Me has also pre
pared extension circular 181 telling
how to feed hogs for profit. This also
' may be had on application.
