ORIGIN OF CANNING
At this tinu of year when so many house
wives are busily engaged in canning fruits and
vegetables for the winter, and their thoughts
are more iiv lesson the art of canning, it will
be interesting to know the origin of canning.
Napoleon is credited with the discovery of
canning foods, according to Mr. Adolph I'ricken,
cit rus canner of Lakeland, Tla, in a short talk
to the Rotary club last week.
Just before Napoleon started on his con
quest of Russia he was confronted with the
problem' of obtaining food for his army during
the long march through the more 'or less baren
ountiy. He otfered a prize to the person find
ing a way to preserve food for an indefinite
period, especially meats.
.A young frenchman soon found the Way.
His method was somewhat similar to the ones
used today. Of course, every year improve
ments are made, but the old principle is the
same. r .
It is interesting to note that we enjoy vege.
tables and fruits out of season as well as in
season largely because of the determination of
a warrior seeking a way to preserve food for
his army so he could conquer more land. So
after all, there seom to be some good in every
thing, even war.
ARE WE READY FOR REPEAL?
Somewhere between "bone dry" and "wide
open" the people of this nation must provide an
intelligent and practical system to take the
place of the prohibition which they seem about
to discard, points out The News and Observer in
an editorial entitled "Time. For Thinking,'.' dis
cussing the statement of the '.Philadelphia''
Record, unequivoeally wet, that it views the ap
parent rapid approach of repeal "with as much
apprehension as rejoicing," Says the Raleigh
paper: "Mere repeal will not cure either the evils
which the repea lists see in prohibition nor the:
evils which brought about prohibition in the
first place. Repeal does not solve the question, it
merely: reopens it. Yet State after State Is
joining the repeal column without making any
adequate provision either for control of the
traffic or for study upon which such control'
should be based.
"The pendulum swings to extremes, but
there must be a realization among thoughtful
people that if the majority of the American
people, decide that 'bone dry' is not possible" or
will not work, that that does not mean that
-.'wide-open' is the remedy." High Point Enter

During the past few months we have said
several times that all those who do not want to
help themselves need not expect the welfare de.
partment to care for them this winter. It has
been reported that some who have been depend
ing on the welfare department intend to do the
same thing this winter. In many instances
they have been offered work, but they don't
f think that there is any need of work, when they
vill be given the necessities of life without it.
How disappointed they will be this winter
when they try to get by with that.
WANTED INTERESTED EMPLOYEES
"The darkest hour in any man's life is when
he sits down to plan how to get money without
earning it," Horace Greely once said.
Probably that accounts for the many
gloomy faces we often see. Not all gloomy ex
pressions are caused from that, however, but
a great many are. Many people have forgotten
how to work and most of them ar not trying
to learn again. There are many people who will
say they want work but can't find it. That
might be true to a certain degree, and then
there is a lot of work to be done that the ave
rage person won't do.
We know of several good paying positions
right here in Haywood county for the right per
son, we mean those who will take an interest
in the business and not just watch the clock
for the closing hour. Take an interest to
the extent of earning their salary.
One of the best business men in this coun
ty told The Mountaineer less than a week ago
that his biggest worry was not 'business con.,
ditions, but the fact that he couldn't get com
petent workers to help him carry on his busi
ness. "I can get plenty of time killers and clock
watchers, but what I want is people who will
take an interest in the business and earn a good
salary," he said.
Now that is a challenge to the working
people. It is also a disgrace. When a business
man can't find people who will take an interest
in a job to the extent that they can't keep their
eyes oil' the clock and attend to business its get
ting to be a bad state of affairs.
Another business man was telling us the
other day that a man who looked as if lie need
ed work applied at his place of business asking
for a job. It happened that the firm needed a
man to do about a week's common labor. An
honorable, clean and not a very hard job at that.
The first thing the applicant wanted to know
was, "what are you going to give me?"
i .He was told lie Would be paid twenty cents
an hour, and could begin immediately, ft was
then ten thirty, but-the jobless man said he
would wait until after dinner to start, and "get
in even hours." After dinner he failed to show
up. He was afraid to work. He was afraid he
would learn how again. If he had taken the
job, the chances are that lie would not have
taken an interest in his job because of his in..
Since the business man referred to above
told lis that he was needing several people for
his business that Would take an interest in it,
and that he couldn't find them, we have won
dered if there aren't many others that would be
glad to add more workers to t heir payroll if
they were assured that they would be repaid
for the salaries paid?
It seems to us that it is high time .that an
interest be shown in the jobs that are now filled
by many uninterested persons, and those who
do not have jobs would do well to., determine
that from hence forth 'they, 'would take an in
terest in t he job for which they apply.
' GETTING. THINGS DONE
There is a faculty given to some men that
it is hard to find a phrase for. It is the faculty
of getting things done.
It is a gift. A man may have ability, edu
cation, training and ambition, and still lack the
genius that gets things done. Another man
who has had little or no education and whose
training has been of the most haphazard, with
out any fuss or ado will seem to accomplish the
Part of it, perhaps, is a daring to tackle
things that. . vn impossible to others. Perhaps
another part is made up of intense concentration
and steady patient work. There is always a
sort of placid certainty about the man who gets
In almost any small community can be
found the man to whom the residents inevitably
turn when something especially difficult to solve
comes up in the life of the community. For
some reason this man is seldom in an official
position. He seems to have no flair for politics.
He is more apt to be found running a business
of his own and taking a comfortable ami un
ostentatious part in the affairs of the village.
He may be a diamond in the rough. He never
dictates. He never boasts. He never exagge
rates. He never scolds. But somehow, as if by
a magic touch, when something is badly need. .
ed, he manages to get it done. 1 '
: In the larger communities and the big cities
it takes longer for the man who gets things
done to be recognized, but eventually he is dis
covered and used. He is the man of the smaller
communities, only his opportunities are larger
and therefore his accomplishment-seems more
Not always does he get the credit for it.
And it is characteristic of him that he doesn't
