EXPECT TEACHERS TO GET MONEY
There have been many complaints against
the sales tax for the support of the schools, but
there is one group that should make no com.
plaints. That group is the school teachers. If
the sales tax produces enough money to pay
the teachers, and we are sure it will, the teach
ers will get their money and will not have to
wait as they have in past years for the people
to pay their taxes. The sales tax is on a cash
basis. When the merchant sells an item that
is taxable, he collects the tax in cash and will
send it on to the state department of revenue by
the middle of the following month.
This will give the teachers their money a
fast as they can earn it and there should be no
waiting on their part. For this we are glad.
We know thai it has been a breat burden on
the teachers to wait on their pay for months,
lint the counties did not have the money until
the taxpayers' made their payments, and the
counties were not able to borrow against collec
tions as they have in past years. The taxes
on all the lands will be paid some time but there
is no way of knowing just when this will be.
The salaries for the teachers may be less
this year than in. the past, but it is all the legis,
lature thought the state could pay, 'and the fact
that they will get the money when it is due
should be good news to them at this , time.
There is a reason why the average age of
criminals,' or those supposed to be, is between
17 and 21. It i a well known I act that children
born into the world are at first devoid of evil
thoughts. As they are taught .0 they grow up.
If they drift it is evidently the guiding hand
that is most at fault. Consequently, indifference
and laxity on the part of parents and teachers
for many years lias had a lot to do with the
ever increasing number of children drifting
away from Sunday School and into the Reform
School. Prison News.
A COW IS MOKE' PROFITABLE THAN A
Judge Wilson Warlick argued in his conn
in JMorganton last week that milking a good
Jersey cow is., more profit able than tending a
still. We are very frank to admit that the
figures given by His Honor were a revelation
to us. For a long time we had imagined that
manufacturing hooch was a very profitable en
terprise and any arguments to the contrary
coming from a less authoritave source would
have been hooted at by us. Put after reading
what the judge has to say upon the subject we
are convinced that the dairy industry should
have many new converts before the winter snow
Hies and looking after a still becomes still more
uncomfortable. -These-, arc Judge WarlickV
"A good Jersey cow will give between three
and four gallons of milk a day, if she is prop
erly fed. Milk sells for -40 cents a gallon and
liquor, brings only $1.50 or thereabouts. Noth
ing has decreased in price so much as liquor.
If anyone expects to make a living out of the
manufacture and sale of liquor, he w-ill soon
find that court fines and jail sentences eat up
all the profits. A good cow can produce in a
day about the same amount made for which a
gallon of liquor might be sold, and milking cows
is a perfectly legal and honorable business

WHEN WINTER COMES
The Summer vacation season soon will meet
its end. Thereafter dates next to be anticipat
ed will be Thanksgiving Day and Christmas,
then New Year's day, with its turning of new
pages to reveal new hopes, new prospects and
new difficulties for men and nations.
The American nation has had a pleasant
summer, comparatively, so far as economics are
concerned. Prospects fo r the autumn are tint
ed with bright hues that will appear in business
and industry as well as in the leaves. The many
millions of new found wealth for persons al
ready receiving, and those who soon will be re
ceiving, the immediate financial benefits of in
dustrial codes will "take hold" Within a short
time as an influential economic factor. After
the autumn, then the winter.
When winter comes the powers of the N.
P. A. indeed will be put to the test. Conditions
of the winter season inevitably cause a slowing
up of industrial and commercial activities hi
normal times. The present is not a normal time
neither is there any prospect that the approach
ing winter will be a normal time. In the next
three months much can and probably will come
to pass, and the odds at least favor the hope
that these events in the main will be greatly
beneficial to the nation as a whole. Consequent .
ly, it now appears the American people will have
more than the Usual number of good reasons
for devoutly observing the first Thanksgiving
of the "new deal" era.
Christmas and its giving of gifts should be
influenced by the fact of minimum wages for

time for mental relignments and appraisals of

It is advisable always to give some thought
to the, future the near term,: the, mid-term
and the long-term. Just now the near term is
worthy of contemplation.. As concerns that

Till; LITTLE FELLOW PAYS
The little fellow never broke a bank, but
on the other hand he, is the one who pays. In
variably investigations of closed banks bring to
light the fact that at the crack of the whip the
small borrower stepped up to the window and
paid his loan. It was the big borrower who
broke the banks in the recent crash of financial
institutions over the nation. It appears from
reports now coming to light that in most cases
it was the inability of the banks to collect on .1
relatively small number of large loans that pull
ed them down into the mire of financial death.
The so-called financiers who required large
sums of the other fellow's money to carry on
their operations, were the ones who left the
banks in the lurch. The whole condition was a
part of the frenzied era of finance, with its un
warranted expansions and big deals for which
the depositors are now paying and paying
heavily. ; " .-.-'
These revelations should point the. way for
bankers in the future. It should show them
plainly that the little fellow is by far the. better
risk. It is hardly possible, however, that they
will follow this, becauce the tendency now seems
to be to f reezs out the small depositor and cater
to the big boys. It is doubted if they have
learned anything from the crash that t6ok its
toll in dollars untold. -Burlington Times-News.

Use Burlap Bands To
Trap Apple Worms
TraDDintr and destroying the worms
of the Codling moth as they leave
the infested apple and crawl down
the tree around harvest time will
greatly reduce this pest next spring.
"The pests can be trapped by fas
tening layer,, of burlap from four to
six inches wide around the trunk of
each bearing tree.'' says H. R.Nis
wonirer. extension horticulturist at
State College. "Many of the worms
that leave the-fruit before ripening
time will also hide behind these bands
and can then be desltroy -?d."
The bands are -placed, around 'the
tree from eighteen to twenty-four
inches above the ground and held in
place by nails run through the ends
of the burlap. Before putting on the
bands loose bark should be scraped
from the trunk in order to eliminate
any hiding place other than the bands.
After the harvest season is over the
bands are removed and the worms
destroyed by boiling them' in an iron
kettle or similar container. . The bands
can then bo dried and puft away for
use another year.
This method of worm, control is be
ing practiced by apple growers
throughout the country and many
growers in this State . have banded
their ttc---i. '.in.ee the middle of June.
"The r- "olleeted through this
early bw..,img have been destroyed
each week and this practice has saved
growers much money in reducing the
number of poison sprays to be appled,"
