' Home Influence
No other influence can begin to
E" Compare with that of the home du
ring the first twenty years of a per
p <ons life.
' During the first twelve years i
B of a chUds life a writer sayB >t is in '
ahcool 3,240 hours, in church and
Y ' ? Sunday school 416 hours and in the
p home, (not counting twelve hours,
for sleep doily,) 62,660 hours. In
ft. Other words, 'the child during the
/' first twelve years of fits life spends
sixteen times as many working :
I' hours in home as in school and one
hundred and twenty six tinies as
many hours in home as in church.
Since it is during thrs early
life that character is largely made,
it is hot difficult to see the relative
value of the educative processes in
school; church and home. If a
child's home is neglected or impov^r
ished during this period, it is abso
lutely inmpossible for the Bchool or
the church or, any Other institution
to compensate for this fatal loss.
That child is doomed to carry fo?
Vever in its soul the marks of a stunt
?d character due to its laving been
robbed of the refining and enrich
ing' processes that go on ceasingless
In every trufe home.
Of all the Wc tors that enter into
the eny.ronments of a child or of
any one elao for that master, the
home is by Jar the most powerful, '
So much so that one 'may say that
home either makes or mars charac
ter. The child, from the day of it3 ,
birth, for at 'least twplye years, :a ,
so domiua.r; J by the influences of
?'home, whether good or evil, that it
fa absolutely helpless to resist them (
What aheart moving responsibility, (
then rests upon the parents to see '
to ij that the home influences are
all that th$y should be. '
The supremely essentia] factor in .
the . environment of every child ' is
that Of God. Hob a child of its con J
scious relation to God,' during the !
'.first twelve years of life and you ,
commit a cr me against it which
leaves its character dwarfed' and 1
Impoverished forever. It never .
cair become what it nilght have been

LIFT TAX BURDEN IS
CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR
SPEAKS IN BREVARD
Hon. J. W. Bailey spoke in the
court house here Iftst week to a
crowd of representative citizens, |
lie carried conviction, to his hearers
in a clear and logical speech on the
necessity of lifting the burden of
taxation from the land owher and
told how it could1 be put where it be- I
longs. Mr. Bailey said we boast of '
the greatness of our State and its
progress, we should do some clearer
The average wealth per capita in
North Carolina is 11,703,00; in
Bleak South Dakota it is $4,482.00,
It averages nearly $3,000.00
throughout, the nation. What is the
flatter with North Carolina. We
have the finest people in theworld
and the finest land. The trouble is
in the hardships put upon the far
mer. Average income for North
Carolina farmers is' $984.00. In
the nation the average is nearly
Politico is the engagement of the
people in righting their wrongs. ;
The greatest problem in the state
is raising the farmers in'come from
$984.00 to $2,000.00. This is be
cause the state has not grappled
with ' the problem, ? ?
- North Carolina produces more
farm products than any other Sou
thern State except Texas. A sys j
torn of frfrm credits shoqld be given
with '.nterest at six percent. Our
farmers have no -.fair market ? for
their products. We have i]o large
eitios be -ause of unjust freight
rates. In Iowa for example ? one
dollar will haul the same amount of
Freight COO miles which it .here hauls i
180 miles. Our tax system as now |
constructed is unjust. The burden
of.,tax6p is on the land owner. '
Taxes 'on property in North Caro
t na have, increased wore than 400
percent fn the pastvtwelve yens. i
The bill passed at the last session
if the legislature to exempt stock
of foreign corporations took from
Sforth Carolina $1,800,000.00 re
ircnue. Taxes should be fairly dis
tributed then the average income
)f the North Carolina farmer would
,-ise.and the farmers problems would
>e solved. Brevard is a rural com
nunity and Mr. Bailey convinced
he people here that they should go
:o the primary and -rote for the man
>vho can help them.

And whereas, in him the Assoc" n- -
Lion had a splendid manager and a

TRAFFIC BETWEEN BREVARD
AND HENDERSON VILLE
To give some idea of the traffic
on theroad, Mle day last week our
Genial Chairman, Geo.H. Lyday, of
the County Commissioners had 'a
count made of the cars pajsing be
tween Brevard and Hendersonville
and the number was 646.
At the present time there are no
tourists in this section, and if our i
home people use the roads this
much, when the tourist season
comes on there will be ten times as
much traffic as at the present time,
so it is easy for our citizens to flg
'lre just what vo* vnr't mean t"
Aransylrania County. |

I l The County Summer School for
this and other counties is to be held
in the buildings of Brevard Institute

tion of the State who are not eligi
ble to attend approved Rummer
schools and who do not have county
summer schools in their own coun
ties. J V
Teachers h6lding certificates be
low' the Elementary Br arre not eligi
ble to attend approved . State sum
mer schools, and must attend 'the
County surnmer school to renew
their certificates. Graduates from
accredited high school^ who have
jjot yet received- a teacher's certlfi-*
cate will receive the same credit Jri
the county summer school that they
would in a state 'sumtner .^chool.
Teachers holding Elementary B and
Elementary A certificates which ex
pire this year and who cannot attend
a State summer, school can receive
renewal credit in ? the county sum
mer school, but' no credit is given in
the county summer school for rais
ing the certificate to a higher class.

j If you wunt a bumper crop of
potatoes, you had better begin spray
mg or during soon and plan on do
ing the operation about every ten
days, weather permitting. To those
who do not ctart-. early, be sure and
give at least two sprays or duste
after the vines are in bloom. This
will help keo.j down the blight till
the tubers r.rc mature, but will not
give the results that an att /seapon
care will. . '
Dusting is: done in about half the
time that spraying is, but will' not
give quite tac results, also takes a
few cents more per acre in materals
The dusting machines can be had
from fifty cents to seventeen dol
lars. The all-round dust will cost
you twelve and one half cents per
pound at my office. Takes from five
to sevee pounds per acre for each
dusting. Also^ have other material,
a?~well as the Drug' stores. If you
are interested in dusters stop at' my
office any Saturday and see some I
have for demonstration.
Mr; Bean Jjeetle is with us, and I
am having many inquries about the
best methods of control. The' past
two years experiments indicate that)
to spray or dust with Calcium arse-'
nate, making sure to hit the under I
sides of the leaves, is the best. Hand
picking the adult will, help very much
Mix one pound Calcium arsenate
or one pound paris green, or one
and one half pounds arsenate of
lead to nine pounds of .slacked lime
and dust while dew is on. - Or from
one to two teaspoons of same to a
gallon of water for spraying. Must
bo put on underside of leaves.
