Four persons died in Perquimans County last year from tuberculosis, according to figures compiled by the North Carolina State Board of Health and ' , published" in the November HealtteJJuUetin; Two of those to die from WWr piague in Perquimans were white persons and two were colored. Since the fight to eradicate tuber culosis got under way in North Caro lina there has been a considerable decrease in the death rate from this disease. In the year 1915 there was a total number of deaths from all forms of tuberculosis in the State of 3,710. Twenty years later, in 1935, the number was 1,938, or a little more than half the number, despite the fact that the population had in creased considerably more than a million. . Tuberculosis is still a public health problem of large proportions, but ini no other disease, with the exception of typhoid fever, have the forces of preventative medicine made such headway as has been made in the ef forts to control and eliminate tuber culosis, according to statistics. Proceeds from the sale of the Christmas seals are used in the fight to stamp Sout tuberculosis. , '1 I .

Anyway you view it, and today's paper offers visible substantiation, the merchants of Hertford have bought heavily for the shoppers of this section,, and the town will main tain its reputation in affording citi zens and visitors the greatest assort ment of Christmas merchandise, and with service in proportion. The storekeepers are receiving sea sonal supplies daily, and it is decid edly to the advantage of shoppers to buy at once in order that they may take advantage of the great displays offered. On all sides the Hertford merchants are optimistic over the prospect for a large Christmas trade based al ready on early shopping crowds, and like their contemporaries in larger cities they admit they will find it difficult to later replace the many bargains on their shelves right now. All of which, they say, empasizes th need for early and not last minute shopping. Those who shop early, also, show an appreciation and sympathy for the great number of buyers who will insist on waiting until later in the season, and at the same time will reveal an appreciation of the ser vices rendered by all store employes. Even now every day people are crowding the Hertford streets carry ing packages and bundles, many wrapped in gay red, green and sil ver colors of the Yuletide season. Many carried long flat packages that had the shape of cardboard clothing boxes, and some have been seen scurrying along with a tier of pack ages piled almost up to the chin. The eyes of all Hertford shoppers had the searching look of Christmas buyers. These eyes scanned the dis play windows, lingered among the goods on counters and shelves and in show cases, as if weighing the off erincra in a desire -fill nnf tha ahm- half)per's list Display windows ofall the stores have never been as attractive as this season, and they have been crowded in front by passersby halting to peer at the clothes, foods hardware, je welry, toys and other articles ar ranged attractively.
