It is with a tinge of sadness that
the editor lays down her' work on
The Perquimans Weekly, though it is
passed on into hands which in all
probability will do a better job than
she has done.
When the initial issue of The Per
quimans Weekly made its appearance
four years ago there appeared in the
introductory editorial the following
"It is the aim of The Perquimans
Weekly to be a real community news
paper. We shall not take on city
airs. We do not aspire to be other
than a country weekly. But we do
expect to be a good country news
paper, filled with news which is in
teresting to our own people. Our
columns will carry stories of home
folks, and will discuss questions of

this end, we ask the cooperation of ,

Looking backwards to that time, it
might appear from the last sentence
of that paragraph that we were a
little cocksure. However, it must be'
owned that we received in full meas-
ure that cooperation which we asked
of Perquimans County folks.
Of necessity we are only a country
weekly. Regardless of whether or t
not we have become a good country,

have certainly done their part.

whatever measure of success we have
attained that we would at this time
make grateful acknowledgment.

As a matter of fact, the greatest
tragedy of fire is that it is almost
always unnecessary. Every year we
burn up resources and property val

The indirect fire loss runs into the
billions, and is reflected in unemploy

carelessness, ignorance or just plain
laziness. It may be that the unpre
ventable fire exists but it is a very
