Towns “Coming Along."
(From Charloi'-t Observer.)
One has only to keep the run of the
| Xorth Carolina weekly newspaper to
i'know how the towns in the state are
i “coming along”. We might take Ruth.
I erforilton, as an example. It is a gnte
I way town for Tryon and Saluda, Hen
I dersonviile and Asheville, Marion and
I Spruce Pine, and it sensed its first op
j porlunity in building and maintaining
I one of the finest hotels in the land.
| It: home paper. The Sun, this week
j tells of an extensive program of mu
i nicipal improvement, which includes a
j city hall, contract for which is let at
i $28,400. The town has bought a new
j fire engine of the best type, and is go
ing to add eight miles to its already
extensive system of paving in which
a considerable item in street widening
will figure. Stories of town develop
[ ment of this kind are common all over
Cleveland’s “Light Week.”
(From Gastnia Gazette.)
Farmer, of Cleveland county are
thoroughly aroused over the proposi
I firm for their home. The matter has
j been agitated now for a number of
I months. The last issue of The Cleve
land Star says:
“R. E. Lawrence, farm demonslrn
I t ion agent has set the first week in
' December as electric light week in
j Cleveland county when he wants all
'"parties wfib tireiiftefestOT'Tn prbmOf
i ing the rural light plants to discuss
the subject and take some definite
step! looking toward the consumma
tion of these distributing stations. For
the past six months the matter of ru
ral light stations has been discussed
’ and the towns of Mooresboro. Latti
j more and Boiling Springs are install
j ing poles and lines hut several other
] sections which have been discussing
| the rural light plans have taken no
j definite steps.
“ft is planned during the first week
of December for the patrons to work
j up lines that will be served by these
stations and perfect the organizations
j for the several sections of the county,
j Mr. Lawrence and the county board of
j agriculture will set dates for discus
j sions at various places and be glad to
j assist these who are interested in the

A Hard-Riding Pair.
(From Chnrlote News.)
There are two enemies of mankind
that ride hand in hand.
One is a ruthless destroyer by him
self. The. other is harmless without his
companion. Indeed, he is one of man’s
greatest friends. He is indispensible.
Rut when the two pet together, they
wage war upon anything that blocks
their path. The innocent are their most
frequent destroyed victims. They have
regard for no man.
Like the Four Horsemen of the
Apocalypse, they roar their way about
the world, scattering death and de
struction and misery and sorrow.
The two are daily taking their ter
rific toll. Laws are not availing
against them. In the end they will be
: separated, but- until man makes a re
| lentlcss war upon tbe one of forever
destroys it, the other will be a source
Each day they ride together.
Through the ends of the earth they
spread terror. No one is safe from
On four roaring wheels they speed.
They are Liquor and the Automo
Lights on Vehicles.
(From Lexington Dispatch.)
Perhaps there is hardly a person in
North Carolina who has ridden in an
automobile at night and passed a ve
hicle without lights who does not be
lieve that all vehicles on the high
ways should be required to display
lights at night. This is not a new sub
ject with us, as it is not a new sub
ject in tlie mind of many people.
Indeed we daresay that most of the
people who pass along the highways
in the darkness with slow moving un
lighted vehicles are aware of the dan
ger to which they subject themselves
and the drivers and occupants of more
swiftly moving vehicles.
Examples are plentiful—and fatal
examples. It is fresh in the mind of
the public how a death or so and
several serious injuries resulted near
Charlotte a few months ago when one
automobile in passing another dash
ed into a buggy It has been but a
matter of days since the driver of an
automobile was instantly killed be
tween here and Charlotte when a stick
protruding from a load of wood crash
ed into his head in the darkness.
Over in Cleveland county a few
nights ago a farmer riding a drill
along the road at night was struck by
a heavy motor bus. The horses were
killed or crippled, the drill was destroy
ed and in a few days the farmer him
self died from his injuries. The bus
driver did not see the (frill until his
own lights picked it up too close to
avoid the crash.
Ordinarily an unlighted vehicle can
be seen by aid of the lights of an ap
proaching care. But the big danger
arises when two cars are meeting and
the lights of each car more or less
blind the driver of the other. When
there is an unlighted vehicle on the
road where two such cars are passing
there is usually an accident. Since the
highways are so filled with motor cars
and blinding lights these nights the
danger of unlighted vehicles is becom
ing more acute.
True, it might entail some hardship
for farmers to carry lanterns or other
lights on their wagons and buggies at
night hut this would he a small matter
in comparison with the constant dan
ger they are in and the trouble they
have in dodging on and off the road
to keep motor vehicles from striking
them. They would he in a terrible pre
dicament if the owners of motor cars
were permitted to' run without lights
at their own will.

Federal Aid in Added to Money Spent
About 3,000 Miles, of Highway
Completed in This State.
The state highway commission has
(completed the construction of approx
imately 3,000 miles of hard surfaced
and graded roads at a cost of around
$50,000,000. It has under contract
about $24,000,000 worth of construc
tion work, giving the state, exclusive
of the county expenditures an invest
ment in good roads of about $80,000,
000 in four years.
Exact figures of completed mileage
on November 1 were 1290 miles of as
phalt nnd concrete roads built by the
state, exclusive of the counties and 1,
452 miles of top-soil and sand-clay
roads. Mileage finished since then will
run the total to about 3,000 miles.
Highways built by the counties under
local bond issues and later turned over
to the state commission amount to
nearly a thousand miles, so that im
proved highways under the control of
the state now have a mileage of

miles of highways, and it is estimated
2,200 miles are yet to be completed,
although on a large part of that mile

Perhaps 18 months more will be re
quired to finish the construction of
this mileage and give the state its

Trinity College To
Build Great Stadium
Plans for the erection of a huge
concrete stadium at Trinity college, at
Durham, capable of accommodating
the largest of collegiate athletic
events, are now in the hands of the
college officials. The announcement
was made officially by Prof. R. L.
Flowers .secretary-treasurer of the
college and is believed to be the ini-j
tial step in a movement for expansion
on alarge scale by Trinity.
Following the completion of pur
chase of land aggregating approxi
mately seven acres, adjoining the col
lege, on the north side of the college
wall, came the statement as to how
the land is to be utilized. No estimate
of the actual cost of the undertaking
has yet been officially given out but
it is generally conceded that the plants
will entail the expenditure of many
thousands of dollars.
“We hope to put up a stadium and
accommodation which will enable the
city of Durham to be t)ie center of
athletic contests of all kinds, in this
state,” Professor Flowers stated in an

YOUNG PORKER WILL
MAKE CHEAPER GAIN
When does a pig make Its cheapest
isles, «nil when does It soil tor the
hlghvst price per pound V This Is a
question that often confronts the
farmer who la raising pigs for the
market, says Prof. L. V. Star key, chief !
of the animal husbandry division at i
CU'ttiaoB col I eg*, in discussing the 1
marketing of hogs.
Kxperlmental data prove beyond a i
doubt tlu.t Ha* younger the pig the
cheaper the gains, a review of the j
pi* market reteals another very In
terceting fact, namely, that feeder
pigs *ell for a higher price per pound
than those which are ready for the
block. If wy put these two Ideas to- !
tether It would seem that there Is
tuore money lu producing feeder pigs
than there Is In producing fat hogs
reudy for market. Of course there are
many factors, says 1'rofeasor Starkey, ;
to' take into consideration In prochic- i
In*, feeder pigs. For example, fairly i
large litters moat lie raised. If the 1
herd doe* not average at least six pigs j
per litter there will be no money lu it.
Large llttertt fend cheap pigs go to- '
One reason why feeder pigs are so
much In demand Is that there Hre so |
ntliny who do not keep a brood sow
and yet they want one or two pigs to
fatten for pork. ^
The man serfio produces feeder pigs
on u large scale must have oonsld- ■
erntde equipment. Several small lots j
are ntuevanry In order that not more I
than two brood aows may be In n lot. ]
Usually good results cannot be ob j
faltted by keeping several brood sows j
and litters together.
With Che smutl’lot proposition then- |
also comes the problem of fresh water, I
Itunnlng streams are Ideal for the !
hogs, but hard to keep fenced. If j
water Is piped to the lots, cere must
be taken #o that there will be no mud )
Male pigs should he castrated at i
from six to ten weeks of age. The ;
younger they are castrated the lobs j
will be the shock. The best time to j
wean feeder pigs la when they are j
eight weeks of age.
The greatest demand for feeder !
pigs Is In the fail when corn is ready !
to be used. At this time carlot ship- !
merits cun t>e made.
Proper Ration for Mare
Is of Much Importance
“The best time to grow fouls, nn<l
t!»e time when they will make their
largest gain* Is when they are being
carried by their dome." says N. K.
Carnes of the nnliinil husbandry dlvl
*ti/n at l.'nlvendty farm «t St Paul,
Minn. “Wnny fanrnws do not realise
this, and hegln feeding the mare a
proper ration only after the foul is
here. The brood mare, when In foal,
should he fed a high protein ml Ion. a
mtloa which Is rich In muscle and
hone building material. This material
Is supplied In the form of oats, bran
and oil meal, ns a concentrate, and
clover or alfalfa hay as a roughage.
"The most common causes for
losses among foals are constipation
and navel trouble. As soon as the
jrotrhg foal arrives, see that he gets a
good drink of hlk mother’s tlrst milk.
This fore-milk nr colostrum has purga
tive properties and Vvlll usually clear
the font's intcsMnos of the excrement
accumulated prior to birth. If the
dtoestive tfn'ct in not chimed by the
foVc-ndlJi,' Jflye the foal a tahlespoon
ful.pf castor oil anti a warm water and
soap , rectal Injection.
"Another thing the farmer must
watch out for.Is navel infection. If
pui and disease genns get Inside the
body through the ojienlng of the uni
bjtlfftl cord, a local Infection or ’Joint
HI’ iMny.devetwp and the foal he lo«t.
The .best- way to prevent this is to
keep the stable In a sanitary condition
