Tells Why Advertising Pays.
"It pays to advertise.". General ac
ceptance of he fact has made slang
of the phrase. Every 'man is thor
ouhgly convinced that advertising
pays other people, 'says the market
He is not quite sure, however, that
it will pay in his oVn case. As a well
known advertising authority points,
out: "It's like dieting we think it's
just lhc:tiiing for Smith or Jones
but we hesitate to take it up our
And he goes on to say that the
reason we hesitate is because we fail
to investigate. We haven't gone to
the trouble to.stndy its benefits upoir
up in particular.
People read advertising tnat s
why it pays," says our authority, to
quote further. .
"Newspaper adyer.tising catches our
eye as we skim the day's news
frequently it is a part of the day's
"Rudyard Kipling wrote to a friend
who sent him an American magazine
witn tne advertising pages torn out
to save postage: 'Next time you keep
the front part, and send me the ads
I can write stories myself.'
"Advertising makes for better
dressed people. It has taught us to
cook without fires, to sweep without
brooms, to make music with a disc,
to,add figures by machinery, and it
hsk fitted us to ready made clothing,

the roods are worthy, a more or less
permanent customer out of that per

It gives that suit of clothes an added
value in his eye." '

NO EASY JOB.
"God forbicj," says Dr. Frank Crane,
"that I should ever own a newspaper
or attempt to manage one. It takes
more quantities of both courage and
tact than.l possess." What a queer
man this Dr. Crane must be, to con
fess he lacks capacity to run a news
paper. Why, we thought everybody
knew how to run a newspaper. Most
people seem to think that running a
newspaper is just the easiest, thing;
they firmly believe that .'hey could
do a much better job at it than is
being done as matters are now ar
ranged. Courage and tact what
have they got to do with running a
newspaper? Dr. Crane must be kid
ding us. Dawson News.
If the average reader of a news
paper could only witness the publica
tion of one issue of a newspaper,
especially the weekly paper, where
oftimes the office is not fully equip
ped, the force inadequate (three men
trying to do five men's work), copy
piling in at the last moment, adver
tisements rushed in half hour before
time to go to press, 'phone ringing
and countless other interruptions, per
haps you wouldn't like to run a news
paper. Maybe you could understand
why headlines on a front page could
get mixed or a missing line appear
60tiietimes if you'll try and run a
newspaper. Greensboro Herald-Journal.
First Modern Census.
Many of the European countries
had crude methods of taking a census
in very early times. In England as
early as 1081 William the Conqueror
took what may- be termed as an agri
cultural census, the results being cm
bodied in the Domesday Book. The
modern census originated in Sweden,
Ejngland and the United States. In
1746 the Swedish Academy of; Scien
ces directed the clergy to compile
statistics of population, etc. In Great
Britain the census ffice was estab
lished in 1800. andyiie first official

Sell Chickens and Ejzs
Buy Home Improvements
Farm women of Charleston County.
S. C. sold 5.41 pounds of poultry
and 10.388 dozen eggs during 1923, as
compared with 600 pounds of market
poultry and 1,009 dozen eggs in )920.
This large increase : in three years
was accomplished, on the part of'ex
tension workers 'co-operatively direct
ed by the United States Department
of Agriculture and the State agricul
tural colleges by constantly emphasiz
ing the value of purebred poultry and
of the need of gradingjall products.
The home demonstration agent ren
dered all possible assistance in the
marketing of these products, but the
good results are attributed largely to'
the fact that at every meeting held,
no matter what subject was discussed,
poultry was advised as a means of in
creasing, the home income. Out of
138" women enrolled in home demon
stration work, -70 improved their
flocks by thc: purchase of standard-
bred cockrels or baby chicks.
In addition to selling poultry, 5.337
pounds of butter and fresh vegetables
amounting to $i,jos.;0, were sold in
the county.- The money earned by
the women in these ways was divided
into three portions.. -One part was
laid away, for a rainy. day. one part
wa.s spent in supplying special needs
of thechildrcn or "for food 'or cloth
ing, and the third w-as spent for home
improvements. '-Among- these im
provement's. 23 houses were ren'od
eled by having additions, new Boots,
or new lighting systems. Eleven
women bought gasoline irons, I made
wheel trays, anii. 4 bought, kitchen
cabinets; 15 planted fruit trees and
138 planted local trees and shrubs to
beautify the hoino grounds.
The people must register their ap
proval of honest pubic officials and
their demand for lax reduction, if
they expect to eliminate dishonesty

MACON COUNTY FARMERS' FEDE
HOG GROWING PAYS -
IN .ANSON COUNTY,
RAlc.igh, N. C, March 2.Anson ':
Courty farmers under .the leadership
'of County' Agent J. W. Cameron are
winning out in a personal contest,
with the corn belt fanner in growing
hogs. Anson County 'farmers arc
making money with the hogs gowti
according to the plans for fccding'as
outlined by '.the swine extension
, workers oi the State College of -Ag--riculture.
This, in substance, is a re- ,
port made by W. W. Shay, who re
cently returned to the College from ,
a visit to that county. 1 .
In talking with, the farmers who
ate conducting feeding demonstra-i
tions, Mr. Shay asked: "Are you
losing money on your tiogs at present
prices?" In'each case the answer was
accompanied by a smile and no man -said
that his hogs were costing him
mpre than they were selling for..
These men know, too, exactly where
they stand, because they are keeping
close records of the" work and know
the exact feed costs of gains made on
the hogs fed.
In telling about this work, 'Mr,
Shay says: "These men are getting
by with a profit when tne corn bel
farmer is frankly selling at a loss;
They are proving that the' North ,
Carolina' corn-fed hog can show z '
profit when the corn belt hog is los
ing money, and when the corn belt
hog i? profitable the Tar Heel hog is ;
more so. These Anson County grow
ers know that the packers handled
nearly ten million, more hogs in 1923
than they did in 1922. and from Wall
they know further that the corn belt
farmer is unloading his hogs and be
fore he stops will sell short as he
'Therefore, Jhe young pigs now in
Anson Coflnty lots. will likely show a
profit when . sold next September.
Those pigs which come later this
spring will certainly be profitable
when sold next spring and the man
who sells his sows now in disgust will
be buying back again at a higher
price, and so the Anson County farm
ers smile when they are asked about
the prcfits in the hog business."
Is it morally right for a city or
state to start business competition
with its private citizens? State in
dustries pay no "taxc,. but force
private properties with which they
compete, to pay the taxes to support
the public properties. -"
