MILLION DOLLAR MARK REACHED
For the first time in the history of the
First National Bank, the resources have passed
the million murk.
This is not only encouraging news from
the standpoint of the efficiency of the bank, but
indicates that economic conditions in Haywood
County are steadily on the upgrade.
The First National Bank was one of the
few banks to weather the storm during the per
iod when financial institutions were closing
The long practice of conservative banking
methods have been responsible for the local
institution making the progress that it has.
The mere fact that the resources have passed
the million mark is worthy of more than just
HUNTERS AND TRESPASSERS
"I don't like this hunting season coming
on," said one of our farmer friends the other
-day. "Not that I object to hunting," he con
tinued, "I like to hunt myself. But it seems as
'though tht.se so-called sportsmen are getting
worse and worse. They figure that hunting
license give them more rights on my land than
1 have myself."
We've heard other farmers tell about los
ing poultry, about cattle being injured with
fine shot, about a fellow who shot a rabbit al
most in the barnyard, and about broken fences,
irates left open, and damage of considerable
amount following each expedition of hunters.
Fortunately it is only the few, the very
small minority of hunters, who are responsible
for those depredations. But the sorry part is
that all hunters are blamed.
,It is these violations of the rules of com
mon decency, this wanton disregard of the
farmtr's own rights on his own land that have
prompted the appearance of thousands of
"'No : Hunting" signs. Hunters who find the
country closed to them have only some of their
own kind to blame.
To thi se of our readers who like to hunt
we therefore suggest extreme care in tres
passing upon the property of someone else. Be
fore you wander through vvoodlots, you had bet
ter make some inquiry as to the ownership of
The time is rapidly approaching when all
of the land in settled regions will be closed to
hunters unless they exercise more care when
hunting or the owners may decide to keep them
idl out in the future.
In our experience we have found that- the
vast majority cf farmers are very reasonable.
They are not unwilling to permit you to hunt.
They don't want to spoil your fun. But first
of all they must look after their own interests.
Therefore we advise: Ask permission first.
Don't be a trespasser. Lenoir ' News-Topic.
THE WAY OF COWS
"Willie Winkus, of Nubbin Ridge, and Tom
Simmons, of Scrabble Bottoms, at Hill Broth
ers store Saturday got to talking about how
scarce feed for stock was going to be this win
ter. Willie said he had a lot of wheat straw
but that his cows wouldn't eat it, so he didn't
know what he'd do for feed. Tom told him if
he had straw he was all right, that it would be
easy to teach his cows to eat it. Willie wanted
to know how to go about making them like it.
"Just spread out a pile in the lot," Tom
told him, "and when the cows come near it run
them away. Do this three or four times and
then walk off as if you know you have, taught
the critters better than to bother it again. When
you are out of sight they'll come back and eat

THE MENACE OF SPITTING
Spitting is an unladylike practice and
should never be done in public. This is a part
of every well raised girl's training. Just why
discrimination is made in training boys and girls
is not clear but it is apparent that many men
are no respecters of place to spit. They do not
spit on trie floors of their homes, but they do
not hesitate to spit on the floor of their busi
ness establishments. They may not spit in a
church, but they have no scruples about the
temple of justice, and a courthouse would be
about as ill furnished without cuspidors as a bed
room without a bed. The side walks are anoth
er place where persons do not hesitate to spit,
in spite of the fact that ordinances have been
passed forbidding it.
This matter of spitting is not just a lack of
nicety that grates upon the delicate feelings of
people trained not to do it. It is a matter of
health and for this reason if for no other spit
ting shculd be prohibited. Germs are often
found in sputum that should not be turned loose
to menace the public.
Our own locality cannot plead not guilty
on this charge of spitting. Would that judg
ment could be devised that would put an end to
it. Smithfield Herald.

ADVERTISING VERSUS SCHEMES TO (JET
The Monroe Merchants Association has
adopted a set of rules concerning advertising
designed to protect the merchants from forms
of advertising that do not bring returns com
mensurate with the amount expended and
from worthless schemes concocted to extract
money from them.
Advertising methods approved fall into the
following three classes:
1. Through any accredited newspaper or
magazine with approved and accredited circu
lation. 2. Through handbills and pamphlets per
taining to one's own individual business.
3. Through any promotion or advertising
scheme or sales event sponsored and promoted
by an individual member.
The following forms of advertising are
banned by the Monroe Merchants Association:
1. Beauty Pageants.
2. Fashion Shows.
3. Contests of any kind wherein more than
one business concern must participate.
4. Curtain Advertisement.
5. Program Advertisement.
6. Advertisement secured by donation to
any organization whetner written or verbal.
7, Advertisement by announcement from
stage or platform.
The alert merchant buys his advertising
on the same premise that a customer buys the
merchants' merchandise where he can get the
most for his money. But merchants are con
stantly harassed by one promotional scheme or
another, and such rules as those adopted by
the Monroe Association are bound to be a pro
tection. There is nothing in the rules laid
down to prevent a merchant from making a
donation to any good cause, but the donation
should be made as an outright gift and not in
the name of advertising. Exchange.

BETTER READ IT
The recent loss to a poor widow in a neigh
boring state of insurance money that would
have cared for her comfortably the remainder
of her life must have impressed everyone who
read about it with the importance of reading the
fine print on not only an insurance policy but on
everything else to which a signature is placed.
Almost every citizen is, in the course of
his or her lifetime, called on to sign some sort
of contract or agreement. In almost every
instance such documents carry stipulations,
reservations or agreements in very fine print,
and in a majority of instances the person plac
ing his signature to it does so without a careful
reading .cf that fine print. The results have
been anything but pleasant for thousands of
people where there is deliberate intention to
practice deception, this fine print serves the dis
honest salesman or business concern with a
loophole through which to escape responsibility.
No matter what sort of verbal contract you may
have had, it is null and void if the fine print on
the printed contract specifies differently.
Careful reading of every word on the con
tract or agreement you are about to sign may
prevent serious misunderstanding and financial
loss. No matter how much confidence you? may
have in the salesman or his firm, always read
the fine print before you put your name to it.
If it's meaning is not then clearly understood
by you, then let it alone or insist upon its be
ing worded that you will not later on be left
holding the bag. Reidsville Review.
