THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
HAND IN HAND WITH GOD:
Fof I the Lord thy God will hold thy
riirht hand, saying unto thee, Fear
not; I will help thee. Isaiah 41:13.
A JOB WELL DONE1
Congratulations, Mayor Winslow.
Sidewalks cleaned off early Mon
day, morning certainly put Hertford
'. jejtoixens in a good humor when they
. stepped from their front dooip .ex
pecting to have to wade through
now to get down town. Everybody
wanted to know who was responsible.
Thiritur the former snow, which fell
rinvfaa- th Christmas holidays, there
was a great deal of complaint De-' . exnlains the odor Mm Put-
I intruded itself 's upon Nina's sensibili
ties that she wrote she couM smell
I xlA x I. .1 J Si. u
saying it was the "nearby town of
Hertford she smelt, it doesn't set
An article by an Edentsm jmwj
paper correspondent which appeared
in several dailies this week quoted
Trim Wilson, Hertford business man,
as saying that Nina 'probably fcot ber
towns mixed and that sh innst Tiave
smelt the cotton oil mill rn Uertforfl.
As a matter of fact, Hertford is
mighty proud of that cotton il smell.
In fact, it might be stated that half
of Hertford lias been bungry for that
smell for years. They like ft Tt is
a prosperous smell, for when the
cotton oil mill runs there is money
pouTintr into the pocketbooks of a
lot of Hertford's population.
"But the point is," said Trim Wil
son, who denies making the state
ment, "there hasn't been a cotton
seed crushed in Hertford in 2 years,
so how in the heck ooold Mrs. Putnam
smell 'em?" "Not only tbat,w said
Mr. Wilson, who is an official of the
Chevrolet automobile business in
Hertford, and to whom the article
referred as an oil executive, "I
haven't had any connection with the
oil business in twenty years."
Note: The Southern Cotton Oil
Company's mill is crushing soya
beans just now, which are odorless.
The Company will shortly begin the
crushing of peanuts, according to C.
P. Morris, manager, so if Mrs. Put
nam had delayed her visit some
weeks she might very easily have
smelt Hertford too.
Post Script: The Lvans Mills, Inc.,
on the outskirts of Edenton, have
for a long time been grinding peanut
hulls into meal. That operation
each member answered with favorite
breakfast cereals. After the reading
and approval of the minutes, new
officers were elected as follows: Mrs.
F. C. White, president; Miss Lucy

LET'S BE NEIGHBORLY

Like as we used to be,
Going visiting, friendly like,
Just you and me.

Let's be neighborly once more,
And shake hands once in a while,
And if our hands won't reach so far,
Let's make believe and smile.

And think of each other again,
And hearing good news of each other,
Let's say it out loud
