What’s it all about anyhow
This campaigning and these speak
ings in every court house in the
state in the interest of safe fann
ing are about over, and seemingly
a small per cent of the farmers
have heard that such a thing is on,
and many of them are asking
"what is it all about?"
The Cleveland Star observes
that In many of the counties when
the campaign was started, as few
as forty and fifty to n hundred
farmers attended the initial meet
ing. In Monroe on the 12th, Dear
I. O. Schaub made a brilliant ef
fort for the future salvation of
Union- county. There were 110
farmers who hoard him, and if the
farm cenana for that county is
correct, there were exactly 4,884
farmers in the county who did not
hear him. The great majority of
these will never know that he made
a speech, and many who by chnnce
may learn that he was in town
will not learn what it was all
In his message to the general
assembly, Governor Angus W. Mc
Lean satd that North Carolina is
spending for food and feed ship
ped into the state $260,000,000 an
nually, and that this same food
and feed could be produced on
North Carolina favms. Add to this
the possibilities of the state in in
creased efficiency in North Caro
lina farmers made possible by
economic independence. Sum up
these three things. Speculate as
to how far the sum total will go
on the church, school and road pro*
prams, and In support of North
Carolina business. and then an
swer becomes evident that this
campaigning and these speakings
are about the future welfare and
prosperity of all the people of the
The North Carolina extension j
division has the remedy. It has \
worked out tho plan which if car
ried to the farmers and impressed;
upon them will turn the trick, and
this band of workers is doing all j
in its power to reach the masses,
but there are too many farmers'
and too few extension workers for
them to put the thin* across un
assisted. Whose duty is it then to
assist? Is it not a part of bank
ing to help make money for depos*
it in the bank? Is it not good
business for the merchant to as
sist his customers in acquiring the
wherewith to buy ? Is it not f:u*>
policy for the professional man,
the teacher and even the preacher
to assist their constituency in
carrying a well filled poeketbook?
Is it not the duty of the farmer,
for the sake of his family, to ad
just his farming to the times
:*nd conditions which JconfrotV
him? It is clearly the business of
all the people to put over this bet
ter farming program which the
North Carolina extension division
has worked out and is fostering.

Horses in Henderson county are
suffering from an epidemic of
botulism, which has been faking
for six weeks. Dr. R. E. Taylor,
veterinarian announced yesterday
that in the past four weeks, there
has been seventy-five horses died,
and he declared that others have
also been lost of which he hnd no
first hand information. This is the
first time an epidemic of this type
has struck Henderson county and
there is a tendency on the part of
farmers to confuse it with mad
ness or rabies.
Botulism Is an epidemic which
has been widely known for its de
structiveness to human life in the
past decade in this country. Sonu
seven years ago, many lives were
snuffed out from it by eating can
ned olives. It is also destructive to
animal life, and l>r. Taylor ex

Botulism is o poisoning which
comes from toxima caused by the
toxine produced by which the
medical profession knows as bacil
us botulinus. It is a poisoning in
all kinds of food which the ani
mals eat, and usually develops fol
lowing seasons of either extreme
drought or wet, or one or the other
following each other suddenly.
The symptoms are of two
kinds. One is where the hores be
comes so weak, muscularly, as to
drop into sleep. The other effect of
tlie illness is that the horse be
comes wild, losing its intelligence.
In both instances, death follows in
anywhere from 12 to 48 hours.
Dr. Taylor recalls that during
his experience in Kentucky, when
an epidemic was experienced there
or the same kind, he applied a re
