THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
REST WITHOUT FRETTING:
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently
for him; fret not thyself because of
him, who prospereth in his way, be
rnuqf of- the man who brintreth
cricket devices to pass. Psalm 37:7.
WELL WORTH WHILE
The temptation to "point with
pride" is irresistable in the matter of
the improvement to the courthouse
green as a result of the movement on
the part of the Hertford Woman's
Club to restore the courthouse square
to its original beauty before it was
marred by those to whom it had be
come a habit to make a short cut
across the grassy lawn.
As a result of walking across one
Side of the courthouse square, a well
denned path had been made, spoiling
the appearance of the otherwise love
ly spot. Sometime in the early
spring a committee from the Civics
Department of the Woman's Club ap
peared before the Board oi county
Pnmmissinnprs and renuested that
some steps be taken to stop the jpub-
lie from using this path. As a re
sult, the ugly path was dug up and
Sown in grass, and "keep off the
giuas Bjgua cic y,ati.i w.v.
The path is now practically obliter-.
ated. The public, which was merely
thoughtless in the matter of walking
on the grass, has cooperated in the
matter of saving the grass and that
side of the courthouse square once
more is laid with an unbroken carpet
of green. -
r Looking toward the courthouse
square from the direction of Church
Street, at the smooth green sward,
'dotted here and there with shrubs of
a darker shade, directly facing the
most attractive lawns of the McCal
lum and the Fleetwood homes, with
the stately old elms and the blue wa
ters of the Perquimans in the imme
diate background, showing a glimpse
of picturesque Crow Point beyond
one sees a' rarely beautiful natural
picture. Just now it is a veritable
feast to the eye.
Reach Huge Total
louring ine period irom juiy i, ivoi
through May 31, 1935, the Agricultu-
. ral Adjustment Administration had
paid to North Carolina farmers in
. rental and benefit payments the huge
sum of $13,042,898.44.
These payments consisted of
$4,615,754.76 for the cotton program;
$51,192.12 for the wheat program;
$7,674,014.12 for the tobacco program
and $701, 937.44 for the corn hog
, program. In addition to these pay
ments, the AAA has paid, during the
same period, the sum of $1,011,607.98
lo county and community comrnitte-
, men and to various persons engaged
in compliance work and. clerical work
in the crop adjustment program.
Many of the persons benefiting from
this latter payment were those need
ling work and were largely from
farms of the State.
A Study of AAA work in North
Carolina this year alsoreveals that
farmers are cooperating in the ad
justment program more heartily
i than ever before. Few violations of
" contracts' have been found by those
nowf' engaged in compliance activity
The growers have planted the p.ver
rage they'agreed to plant and the few
instances where there has been over
planting has been due largely to er
rors in estimating the acreage.
Extension workers also report that
farmers are deeply concerned abouf
the future of the AAA program. The
numerous attacks designed to destroy
the program by eliminating' the pro
cessing, taxes are reported to be at-"
tractmg' the attention of "the busiest
farmers. Their Totes in the 'recent
referenda show positively that they
want the adjustment programs con
tinued and . they are hopeful that the
amendments now before Congress
will make the original Act constitu
tional so that the program will not
1 e hampered in the future ' ;

Tokyo. Five people living 1n one
house attempted to commit suicide
In rapid succession. .Two lads, aged
seventeen and eighteen, seeing their
mother, a Mrs. Sakan, take poison,
decided they, too would die. Their
groans caused a woman boarder to
rush into the ropm. "If you are all
going to die, J may as well die, too,"
she 1 declared,- and -swallowed some
of the poison herself. ..Appalled by
irhat he saw when he returned home
shortly afterward, , Mr. gakan ejf

living If every one else dies" and
also took poison. The five, were dis
covered In time to be saved.-
ADOPT AN HEIRESS; s;
- BUT DON'T, KtfOWJT
Penniless Grpfem Baby, Will Be
New Xork.-r-A childless English cou
ple who recently adopted a baby girl
orphan In a New York hospital will be
surprised some day to learn that their
foster-daughter la no mere foundling,
but heiress to a modest fortune. Ex
amination of records In the Surrogate's
office disclosed the fact
If stocks, bonds and mortgages
weather what economic storms may
supervene In the next two decades,
"Baby Jane,," ,&Br she Is described in
court papers on her twenty-first birth
day will Inherit about $20,000. More
over, her heart will bo gladdened by a
platinum and sapphire barpln, a white
gold wrist-watch and other pieces of
! These facts were kept from the world
lat large during the period when the
'New York county administrator, dis
penser of unwilled estates, was care
fully scrutinizing all the assorted cou
ples who fcand Jane's smile enchant
ing and contemplated adoption.
Since Jane's mother was an English
girl, those Interested In the baby's fu
ture were delighted when a pleasant
English couple, personal friends of Sir
Gerald Campbell, British consul gen
eral In New York, took a fancy to the
little orphan and sought permission
to adopt ,her. Their application ' was
granted a few months ago, but since
their Income was adequate no one told
them of the sums drawing Interest in
Investments selected by the Corn Ex
change Bank Trust company.
Legally, "Jane's foster-parents could
claim the child's estate If they knew
about It. Surrogate James A Foley
and officials In the public administra
tor's pSice, however, felt that since
the couple adopted the baby on her own
merits, this pleasant surprise could
wait until later. And so at present, so
far as her foster-parents are concerned,
Jane Is no heiress but just a very
charming baby girl.

Ten-slxly-gis is a selection of hard

an early ripening spring wheat, from

Tenmarq also is an excellent exam

bureau, of plant industry : In producing
and testing new varieties The first
cross of Marquis and Teh-slrty-six was
made in 1918. Several hundred selec

plant breeding nursery at Manhattan,

Songs Of Rare Birds
Expedition in the Southwest Preserves Voices of Unusual
SpecieB Before Their Extinction
BACKED by Albert R. Brand, Associate in Ornithology at
the American Museum, the American Museum of Natural
History-Cornell . University, Ornithological Expedition, a -caravan
of mud-spattered stientists and two truck-loads of delicate
apparatus, are somewaere m one oi
States picturing rare and common
birds and recording the voices of
unusual species. v xS
Catching the song of a rare bird,
says The Literary Dlgett, is a
gamble, . At . four . o'clock in the
morning the scientists are np, have
their apparatus in place and, If
their position is favorable, they
.may be, able to record the -song of
a rare specie which may be extinct
In the future. The collapsible plat
form on the top of the truck, will'
permit photographers to have
camera, microphone and 'blind
twenty feet above the ground.
The recording "mike" has Its
back to the source of the sound.
Like a telescopic mirror, its sensi
tive side,, located at the focus of a
three-foot parabolic reflector, brings
the distant sounds to a point. The
