IT ALE DEPENDS ON K'KES' WISDOM
The interest which North Carolina is show
ing in the routing of the Parkway, exceeds that
of any election, either state or national. Tin
em ire state is looking forward to Tuesdav,
September 18 th, when Secretary I ekes will hear
North Carolina and Tennessee present their
claims for the southern portu 11 of the Paikwav.
North Carolina is basing her hopes for the
route on the fact that her sconerv is unsurpass
ed and that Secretary Ickes' better judgment
and wisdom will not ignore such a fact.
('IIE( KIN(; TP ON OURSELVES
When evening comes, go off into a quiet
place and review your clay.
Have you been kind and thoughtful, or
mean and thoughtless?
Hao you kept an even temper, or have
you lost your temper When things have gone
Have you been pleasant, or grouchy?
: , Have you 'inspired those whom you have
met, or have you depressed and discouraged
Have you done, something creative and
worthwhile, or have you wasted the dav with
: petty things?
Have you increased the happiness-moments
in the lives of others, or. have vott thought onlv
of self? '
Have you enlarged your mental horizon,

TAKIXG STOCK OF OL'R "GOODS"
At least once a year merchants and busi
ness men take stock to see just what they have
on hand; what is needed to improve their busi
ness and also to find whether the profit is more
than the loss. If merchants find that stock
taking is worm time and trouble, whv should
not a community take stock of itself ence in a
while to determine just which way its headed?
This thought is brought about because so
many summer people have said time and tim'.

awfully dull here, when all the tourists have
We disagree with that statement. They
don't know I lav wood County.
We work for the tourists in the summer
and during the other nine months of the year
we work for ourselves, all of which is profitable
to those who WrORK.
Now getting back to our "stock-taking."
This fall we face a brighter future than at
any time, since !!)2t. There are more staple,
permanent establishments here in the county
now that were not here three or four years ago.
Even nature has come forth and not only help

Whether the canal could be defended
against n first-cla.ss power in time of war is one
of the country's important military problems. :

Plant Bed. Sterilized
Kven plants need the safeguard or
sterilization of their habitat on occa
sions. Operators of grpenhousea are
forced- at times to steriliw the soil In
the seed beds to prevent 'heir plants
from contracting various nlaiu dis
eases which can cause thousands of
dollars in . damage unless preeutod
The usual method of sterilization is to
heat the soil in the seed beds with
steam pipes,, the soil being raised to a
temperature of ItlJ degrees Kahren.

Averse, from the Latin aversus,
alienated, is derived from uwrtere to
turn away, and is applicable only' to
fieings of consciousness and will, and
that in reference to their inclinations
ami rasies. we are adverse to that
which we disapprove, but averse to
that which we dislike. We are averse
to what is opposed to our reason, or
to that which is uncongenial to 'our

steps as w.- may feel to he ohjeetion-abh-
