THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
SORROW FOR SIN: O Lord my
God, hear me, for I am ready to halt.
I will declare mine iniquity; I viH be
sorry for my sin. Psalm 38:15-18.
ALL DOGS IN COUNTY MUST BE
There is plenty of machinery, and
the wheels have already been set in
motion, to rid the state of the men
ace of the mad dog.
The last General Assembly of
North Carolina parsed- an act en
titled "An Act to Prevent Rabies in
the State of North Carolina."
The Board of Commissioners of
Perquimans County, on Monday, in
accordance with the provisions of the
Act, appointed rabies inspectors who
are to vaccinate all dogs in the coun
ty for the prevention of rabies.
There is every opportunity, if the
officers are diligent, not only to bring
about conditions which will remove
practically all danger of dogs con
tracting and transmitting the dread
malady of rabies, but also to remedy
the situation which has existed in
this county of only a portion of the
dog owners listing their dogs for
A little less than 1,000 dogs were
listed for taxation in Perquimans
County last year. It is estimated
that there are actually several times
this number of dogs in the county.
The county has probably lost thou
sands of dollars in dog taxes because
of this condition.
The Act for the prevention of ra
bies provides that all dogs shall be
vaccinated annually for the preven
tion of rabies. It provides that a
certain time snail De set in me vari
ous communities for the vaccination
of the dogs, and that dog owners
shall assist the rabies inspector in
the work; that each dog vaccinated
shall wear a metal tag showing the
year of the vaccination; and that if
any dog is found not wearing such v.
tag the owner shall be notified to
TirnHurp rertificate of the vaccination
within three days, and if he fails to
do this he shall be prosecuted. It
p ovules that if the owner of a
dog not wearing a tag ci'not be
found the dog shall be killed.
The Act provides that after the ra
bies inspectors have carried out their
part of the provisions of the ret it
shall be the duty of the sheriff with
the assistance of the rabies inspectors
to make a thorough canvass of the
county and frequently thereafter to
determine if there are any dogs that
are not wearing the metal tag.
The provisions are such that the
situation which has existed in Hert
ford this spring, of dogs straying
about the streets apparently without
home or owner, can be corrected.
There is menace in that situation.
It is the dog which is not properly
cared for which falls a victim to ra
bies. There are teeth in the Act. Any
person convicted of violation of any
of the provisions of the Act will be
fined not less than ten nor more than
fifty dollars, or imprisoned not less
than ten nor more than thirty days.
Moreover, while the dog owner who
pays taxes on his dog is not required
to pay anything additional for thf
service of vaccinating his dog if he
has it done at the time and place ap
pointed by the rabies inspetcor, as the
fifty cents collected at the time is
credited on his dog tax, it will cost
an extra twenty-five cents if the
owner does not see that the vaccina
tion is done at the appointed time.
A GOOD WORD FOR HERTFORD
'Hertford is such a nice town in
which to shop," remarked a woman
from a nearby town this week. She
lives in a much larger town but says
she finds so many nice things in the
Hertford-stores which she. cannot get
in her home town.
A. great many folks from neigh
boring communities come to Hertfort
. fv kn vwula ' TheM ia ft reason for
this of course. It bears ,'i oot'. the
truth of the much-quoted statement:
"If a man write a better book, preach
mousetrap than his neighbor,: the
world will make a beaten pith to his

HIT OR MISS
A mule with a will of his own is
not unusaaL hat one 'which jpersist
ently refuses to be bridled when its
owner is at the disadvantage of hav
ing to follow him about the streets,
is certainly a pretty 'exasperating
Floyd Sutton, a coloxed man from
Chapanoke, drove a mule .to .town on
Tuesday. The mule broke loose from
his Wtching post and ran away, trav
eling north down Church street until
he reached MeCrary. He turned ast
there and, failing to make the grade,
fell sprawling cm the concrete bridge,
teurning over the cart and spilling
the bags of shelled oxn and a plow
with which the cart was loaded. Al
though he hurt his head to the extent
that blood flowed freely from Ids
nostrils, the mule strolled off to
graze contentedly on a nearby lawn
after his owner and some other men
had helped him up. However, -when
the owner sought to bridle him he
couldn't see it that wav. He scamp
ered off, with Sutton following pati
ently with the bridle, and for a long
time the wary animal led the owner
a right merry chase.
(From the Industrial Press Service)
One statistician has figured that
with Postmaster General Farley
claiming to represent 22,000,000
Democrats, the Republican National
Chairman 16,000,000 Republicans, Dr.
Townsend 25,000,000 seekers for Uto
pia overnight, Coughlin 16,000,000 be
lievers in fairies, Senator Long 10,
000,000 "joiners," etc., that the total
list of those who represent groups
comes to over 800,000,000, about ten
times our electorate.'
"Now we shall have better law en
forcement" The statement is heard
on every hand and is pretty gener
ally accepted as the result to be ex
pected from two recent additions to
the law enforcement body. A little
"night policeman" and a little
