THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
LOVE CASTS OUT FEAR: There
is no fear in love; but perfect love
casteth out fear; because fear hath
torment. He that feareth is not
made perfect in love. I John 4:18.
I' . THE SITUATION HASNT
' CHANGED MUCH
i As everybody knows, one result of
the depression which was common to
most cities and towns was vacan
stores and houses. This situation
has, never developed in Hertford.
Strange to say, there is not and ha?
not been for any- length of time
vacant store or shop in the place and
very few vacant dwellings.
While preparing to write some
thing concerning this situation, with
a suggestion that it might be well to
build, there fell into the hands of
the editor some copies of an old
newspaper published in Hertford
thirty-four years ago. An editorial
printed in the issue of Sept. 19, 1901,
of The Hertford Herald is reprinted
"With plenty of money, land and
lumber lying idle, there is not a
vacant house in Hertford, and home
seekers who wish to locate here are
forced to go into neighboring cities
in order to find houses to live in.
"Hertford is a progressive town.
Business is good in all lines. Labor,
skilled and unskilled, is - in constant
demand at good wages. Prosperity
seems -willing to thrust itself upon us.
"What are we doing?
"Actually grasping prosperity by
the neck and choking it off.
"We cry out for labor, but when
labor comes we have no houses for
the laborer's family. They go away
distrusted, and report conditions to
others who naturally refuse there
after" to consider Hertford as a place
of good residence.
"This opportunity to make Hert
ford a city instead of a town won't
hansr around, heroine, forever. We
would not be surprised if the tide in
the affairs of the town is somewhere
in the vicinity of the flood just now.
Presently maybe we'll, have houses
and no tenants.
"The way to take advantage of the
present and push Jhe town ahead is
to seize the tide at its flood and loi

PAYING THE,, EDITOR
A kindly gentleman, his shoulders
somewhat rounded by honest labor,
but as agile and young as ever, came
into this newspaper office the other
His visit "was no different from
that of many of our other friends.
He had merely come in to pay his
subscription. He had come a dis
tance of 12 miles. But more than
just "paying up" for his paper, he
offered profound apologies for being
in arrears on his subscription a little
over nine months. As he paid the
$3.00 for two years he remarked, "It
is a-shame to owe for your home town
paper. We all get it, read it, and
' enjoy it. I new I owed you, andre--v
cently told my wife I was going to
put away a quarter, or dime, occasion,
f- ally so that I'd have enough to pay
! up the next time I came to town.
Country editors should be paid for
their work. They need it. Editors
do a great service for us, not only
r furnishing news about people we
know, but somehow , we 'understand
your editorials, better than those we
read in other papers. Reckon it's just
because they are written so plainly!
Yes, sir, we all ought to keep our
subscriptions paid up better than we
do." .- i
And he went away smiling.

eral government funds about which
there is so much talk just now, and
which neighboring towns are prepar

a contribution, it is my belief that
we as a town should do something
about this matter.
The watches were certainly cheap,
no doubt about that. And if they
had continued to run all would have
been well.. But alas, they didn't. One
fellow got one that only runs when
he does. The minute that boy sits
down his watch knocks off. It won't
run another second until he starts
walking, and then it startes ticking
right away. That's pretty exasper
ating, because the fellow naturally
gets tired walking.
It is said that probably a couple of
dozen of these fine looking time-pieces
were disposed of during the few
hours that the stranger was in town.
A number of folks bought them, s
they say. The news comes through
the grapevine. I am telling you af
'twas told to me. Naturally, the folks
who bought the watches don't enjoy
talking about it.

"The Five O'clock Man" is gone. No

For thirty-seven years, a life-time,
Worley Mixon worked nights, and
probably no more faithful worker
could be found anywhere.
For a number of years he was em
ployed by the Albemarle Lumber
Company and for the past eighteen
years he has made his daily trip to
the plant of the Major & Loomif
Company. That is, he made the trip

Rain or shine, in winter and in
summer, "The Five O'clock Man," as
he got to be called, passed on Vs

Church Street, out across the bridge,
over the Causeway, on to the mill.
He rarely missed a night at the
mill, where he worked as night
fireman. He was never late. He
never hurried. He usually walked
alone. At the same time each after
noon you could count on .Worley Y
passing that way. It was said that
clocks had been set by Worley's
It has been estimated that Worley
Mixon walked something like thirty
thousand miles, on his regular daily
trip to and from the mill throughout
the period that he worked.
What a lot of changes he had seen !

door-ways of the home he passed

From time' to time extracts from
these papers will appear ' in this
column. Below is repainted a portion
of an editorial under date of August
?9, 1907, which stilt holds good:
"We maintain that we have right
here in Perquimans County beauty
but little thought of or appreciated
by our own people." Do you wish to
look upon a scene as splendid as ever
the fisher folk of the Mediteranean
looked upon? Theni stand, -on the
shore of Perquimans River at Hert
ford harbor some semi-cloudy morn
ing and watch the sun rise above the
fleecy figured clouds that gather by
the river's far 'eastern shore. You
will see every color and tint the eye
can conceive reflected in the clouds,
and on the shimmering bosom of the
river in prismatic splendor that will
make your heart leap and bound with
exquisite pleasure, if neglect of your
soul has not blinded your eye to the
beautiful. Presently; as the faint
breath of morning! steals over the
water, tiny wave crests will be tipped
with the sun's silver-burnished rays
and the gentle swells will roll on to
the ocean in a path of glory."
