They were two not bora to rest.
Their graves become them,.
In 1793 Emma was the wife of Sir
William Hamilton; English Ambassa
dor to the court of Naples. Daughter
of a blacksmith anil a cook, she had
arrlred at her lofty station by cruel
ways. Miserably poor and so beauti
ful that people turned on the London
streets, to stare as she passed, it was
not strange that Fate should come
upon her early. At sixteen she had
had her first lover. Long after, she
wrote Romney the painter, from so
many of whose canvasses her loveli
ness still looks :out deathless:
ibrougb distress my virtue was Tan
quished but my sense of virtue 'was
Charles Orevllle, a young man of
fashion, was the direct though cer
tainly not intentional cause of Emma's
becoming Lady Hamilton. Sir William
was his uncle. Greville, having been
for soma time Emma's ' protector,
found himself in need of money. For
i not too delicately veiled considera
tion hj toade her oyer she aJJ un
suspecting to the elderly dilettante.
The unpredictable happened. Sir
William married ber. The cook's
daughter became an Ambassadress
and in the course of time the favored
Intimate of the' Neapolitan Queen.
Nelson's past had no such chequer
d design. For -several years before
ha" sailed Into the harbour of Naples
he hailbeenKJeting his. heart out on
half -pay- In ,.'. Norfolk village., I Ho
was thirty-flve and had been six years
married to '.a widow with one son.
And yet his fame was unachieved.
So they met ... the Captain and
the Lady . . . and for a few days
were much in each other's company.
They were not to. meet again for five
years. . ,,- -. ...

Upon which he sailed la pursuit of

find the harbours empty. He doubled

AH Europe rang with the name of
Nelson of the Nile. U was the first
great check to the menace of
Napoleon. Almost as important, India
was saved. "If it had not been for
you English," said Napoleon years
later, "I should have been Emperor
of the East; but wherever there is
water to float a shin we flr. .11. fit
find you in the way." i
Nelson went back t Naples. He
had lost an arm. He had lost an eye.
Ho was recovering from a fever and
from a wound in his forehead received
at the Battle of the 'Nile. Naples
gave him a mad ovation1. Emma with
Sir William and the King went out
on the royal yacht to meet the Van
guard, Nelson's flagship: She had not
seen him while he wa lying off port
waiting for the letter from the Queen.
She had not seen htm since the days
when he was only aptatn Nelson.
When she set foot upon his deck and
came face to face with "him she faint
ed. She had always been in love with
glory. It stood before her to tortured
but indomitable flesh.
Nelson spent three wfeka re-fitting
his battered ships, during which time
he lived with the Hamfltons. It w.
then he and EmmaT mmtt. have begun-
t realise what way, th were going.
She became his companion, his aman
uensis, his i-devoted, , untiring go-be-
iween in tne Neapolitan' court. Her
courage, her passionate? energy, her
ardent patriotism went hand in (love
with his. What followed was inevi
table. England kept Nelson to the
Mediterranean and he and Emma be
came lovers. Never any half meas
ures for' either of them. From then
to the hour of his death at the battle
of Trafalgar, to the. cock-pit of the
thundering, shuddering H. M. 8. Vic
tor, Nelson never wavered to his love. ,
Emma never for the space of a heart
beat wavered to hers.
His cold, areedv.wift xefused to di
vorce him, so though he, called Emma
his Guardian Angel and the - officers
of his flag-ship drank a. nightly toast
to hr, he was never able to mako
her .his wife.. They paid dftrl? for-
thelr 'entlawad happiness. -
But 'Nelsosa last wrlttof before
Trafalgar was to Emmai "1 wm take
ears that; my name shalLbe ever most

Ahnott his last word, gasping his -
life away: "Take care. of my soor
Lady Hainflton, Hardy."
The barge that bore bis body from
Greenwich to Whitewaq on the last
voyage, of all , had Emma's portrait
painted to the stern.
Saying goodby to her on his war to
death he told her: , "If there were
more, Emmas there would be more
Nelsons." . ,
He might who, knows? have
counted Westminster well lost

Can Grow Pigs For
Farmers who have signed adjust
ment contracts to limit their corn
production, but who have not been
raising hogs, will be allowed to raise
one litter of pigs this year for home
consumption, according to a new rul
ing announced this week.
To encourage the production of
more hogs for home use, a number of
other modifications have also been
made in the corn-hog contracts, said
W. W. Shay, of State College, who
has charge of the corn-hog program
in this State.
Further details about the new
rulings may be obtained from local
county agents, Shay pointed out.

FORMER HERTFORD BOY IS
H. N. Sumner, U. S. N., of Wash
ington, D. C, former HertfoV boy,
has been promoted to the rank of
lieutenant-colonel, according, to a re
port received in Hertford this week.
Lieutenant Colonel Sumner is a son
of Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Sumner, Sr.,
Charles Gaslin of Pafftown, For
syth County, has cleared 12 acres of
his, farm woods damaged by sleet
last year and saved over 40 cords of
good fire wood. All the brush was
used to stop gullies.
Five pure bred Angus beef cattle
were purchased at the East Tennessee
Cattle Sale at Knoxville by a Chero

It is thought the Southern farmer
has ah unusal opportunity just ahead
to make a satisfactory profit on poul
try. Supplies of red meat are consider
ably reduced and the price has ad
vanced to a point where people of
moderate means will be turning to
cheaper meats. Eggs and poultry
meat will be the answer in many
It will take at least three years to
increase beef cattle to normal, and it
is expected that it will be the latter
part of 1936 before the hog and pig
population is back to where we can
have cheap pork chops.
It is possible to get into the poultry
business, both from an egg and meat
standpoint, in a few months.
There are fewer hens on farms in
the South today than at any time in
the last fifteen years. Farm flocks
have averaged over 65 birds per farm
flock for the past ten years. In 1933
there were 64 birds per flock. That
dropped in 1934 to 62 birds per flock,
since which time it has dropped to 57
birds per flock.
With prospects for a normal grain
crop in 1935 and with fewer farm an
imals to consume it, there is every
indication that feed prices generally
will be lower in relation to egg prices
than far years past. Also higher
prices for beef, pork and mutton will
strengthen egg and poultry meat
Every brooder house should be fill
ed with chicks this spring. (The situ
ation just ahead might be compared
to the farmer who planted a crop of
cabbage one year, and because cab
bage was scarce he received an excel
lent price. The next year everybody
had jumped into the cabbage raising
business, and ruined the price of cab
bage. The wise farmer, seeing that
everybody had quit several other
crops to go into cabbage, switched
his crop over to the ones in which he
saw a shortage developing, so that the
second year he profited the same as
the first) A profitable demand for
poultry meat and eggs is ahead.
Chicks bought now mean increased
income next fall.
