MAKE UP IN INTEREST
FOR ATTENDANCE
Those Who Hear Locture* Are
Much Interested—Matthews
And Cardwell Talk Of Con
serration Rather Than Of
Increased Production Of
Sweet Potato.
Although there wore leu than
three score farmer* pretent to hear
C. D. Matthew* sad G. A. Cardwell,
representing the agricultural depart
ment of the State end the egricultor
el department of the State and the
agricultural end industrial divirion of
the Atlantic Coast Line Railway, re
spectively, when they spoke here un
der the empire* of She Chamber ef
Commerce in the inters at* of aweet
potato culture, the attention given
their manages by the few more than
compensated for the sparsity of the
crowd.
Every farmer present left the
meeting with a greater respect fer
ithe lowly potato.
The speaker* were not so much in
torestsd in Increasing the production
of the potato her* as they were in
conserving the usual quantity produ
ced. Last year Harnett County pro
duced 280,304 bushel* on 1,743 acres
of land. The marketable value of
those potatoes was around • quarter
of a million dollars, but it is not like
ly that one fourth of them found
their way to market. A large part of
those that rsmaiaed rotted.
Caring aad warehousing concerned

this provided there is no reason for
any waste at ail. aad planters will be
wble to hold their product for the
higher prices that come in Into winter
and spring.
Both the railway and the State are
striving to enlarge markets for the
^ wed'Jfwt now *prafereao/'u given’
the Jersey variety, which is a dry
almost taotaleu tuber somewhat like
those Dunn used to know as the
"fcatut.” This, the speaker mid, was
attributable to the advantage the
Jersey growers hare goiter through
getting to the markets first. In late
years, however, consumers in these
markets who have gotten a taste of
the Caroline product arc calling for
them. All that Is needed to op so
Hrger markets is advertising and co
operative methods of marketing.
