While began missing money from his
office, the losses varying from
cents to Mr. White became
at the frequency of these loss-
es and set to work to find out the
cause. He engineered o nice bit of
detective work, and while his plans
were a little slow he kept his patience
and was finally rewarded by land-
lug the thief.
A young colored man, Wiley Clark,
has for sonic time been cleaning up
Mr. White's office, going every morn-
to do this work. Being a slick
and observant Wiley had
learned to manipulate the day lock
on office safe . Mr. White began
to suspect this as the one who
was getting the money and went to
work to catch him.
At first It puzzled Mr. White to get
run of the losses, but finally he
mads the discovery that they were
occurring during the dinner hour
when BO one was in the office. There-
upon he engaged one to watch
the office door while he was at din-
and to telephone him Wiley
was seen lo enter the office. In the
meantime some coins were carefully
marked, a record made of them,
the coins placed In a convenient place
in the safe.

On Saturday by mortgaging their
home, the parents of Wiley secured
a bondsman for him and he was re-
leased from prison. As soon as re-
leased he was again arrested under
a warrant for stealing a pistol from
Mr. White. Wiley was again taken
before Justice Harding on this charge
and was held under an additional

GREENVILLE, PITT COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA, AUGUST 1910.
LARGE ATTENDANCE FRO ALL
OF THE COUNTY.
Bias Small, Road Engineer
Dr. Pratt and Secretary of State.
This has been one of the greatest
days in Pitt county in many years.
It was the occasion of the holding a
good roads convention of all the
of the county for the purpose of
awakening a general interest In good

weeks ago by the chamber of com-
of Greenville, and how well

the school auditorium for the
meeting, and this was accepted with
thanks. There were fully people
in the auditorium when the meeting

and more came in to swell the attend-

Anything means progress to
Pitt county never fails to strike a re-
chord in the hearts of her
people. Centuries ago the Africans
played hall with diamonds, not know-
their value. It took the
of civilization to show them
that their plaything were the world's
most valuable articles of commerce.
It Is only as a people becomes en-
lightened, do they appreciate their
undeveloped resources. Pitt county
has long since reached the stage of
true appreciation of her
oped resources and the most efficient
way of developing her magnificent
sections, and as Dr. Dixon, of
den. said, they not waiting until

It was Indeed an inspiring scene
that th speakers of the
good roads convention.
Congressman John H. Small was
the first speaker, and touched upon
many Interesting topics as well
good roads, and showed the untold
confronting Pitt county In
the way of drainage, developing
power, and so on.
Congressman Small spoke, as fol-
It was most gratifying to
pate such a meeting of mutual
concern to people of town and country.
There was never a time when people
were more willing to give time and
wealth for the betterment of the
in North Carolina than today. We
have met to discuss for action. When
has not been carried into
action is weakened for the next
time. The implanting of thought to-
day should be put into force and there
should be at once organization and
action. We hope that everybody is
here for action.
This Is an economic question of our
country and world, and that state or
county, which devotes most time and
energy to tills question, help the
and country most. Public
demand wise solution. We have
fought fights for the education of our
children and Pitt county rivals any
section or county. Pitt has gone fur-
and has prepared for equipment
of teachers. This school Is a
which sets you above and should
be a source of pride to every one.
Under your superintendent of schools

Our old plans have been In-
sufficient, but you have a land now
that is leading in the right direction
for most effective drainage.
It Is too late to recall the waste of
our time, but we can in future utilize
what we have for profit and proper
benefit to us and our children. By the
application of proper methods we can
Our soil Is another asset that needs
our attention. We are wasting the
fertility of our soil by bad methods
and they should be renovated and re-
stored to original fertility and no
longer be wasted, but used for the
help of the whole people.

receive our attention for fish and

Two fundamental propositions for
our growth and development are
teaching agriculture and mutual work-
together of the town people and
country people for the Improvement of
both. Dr. State superintend-
of schools, has worked out the
agricultural school proposition. Pitt
county public school teachers have
asked for five times as much literature
on agriculture as any other two
ties comprising the fourteen counties
of the first congressional district.
Individuals must Join together in
their efforts. If a church Improves
It Is because they Join together for
work. The same is true of schools,
and If highways are Improved it must

Let us got together. Let us unite.
Let us lie patient and pray for the

have rivalry, but the sections should
be a basis and put it up to the town-
ships. Let them solve the problems
for themselves. I lay on the
spirit of co-operation and working to-
for our best Interests.
The second speaker was Mr. Lester
K. road engineer of the United
States Department of Agriculture. He
said he had a long ways to
be present at this meeting, on
day he was in Alabama and had been
on the road night and day to get
here. Was tired and worn out, but
glad to be here and see this audience.

tide should turned from tile city
to the country, instead of the country
to the city. The best way to do
Is to build good roads. Men do not
feel this Isolation bad roads
do our women.
When you decide to build good roads
you must first determine upon the
kind of roads most suitable to your
country from the point of view of
cost and the kind of material for build-
that is available. Here you are
ideally situated for the sand-clay road.
Nature has done your grading. Then
the real question is that of drainage
You must get rid of the water. To
do this your roads must slope from
the center to the sides where you
have scooped out ditches which take
the water to lower points, draining
entirely from the road bed. The sand
road Is a bed of loose sand which has
no rigidity. The sand grains must
be bound together by some kind
of cement, which Is clay. To do this
distribute the clay over the sand from
to inches deep and scatter it as
you haul it. To find out how much
clay Is necessary for any given
of sand, take two glasses, lining
one with sand and the other with
water and pour the water into the
sand, and the portion of water that
it takes to fill the glass of sand
the same amount of clay necessary
to make a firm road. After the
has been placed and mixed, cover by
dragging with the split-log drag.
For the clay road, cover i to inches
deep With sand, and mix with a
row while dry, then run over with a
drag. If sand appears
on more clay and use the log drag.
This is the best way to keep up your
roads. The log drag is the most use-
of road Implements. You can op-r
ale the log drag at a cost of cents
per mile, and the roads should
dragged one time each month, making
the whole cost by this method per
year. The old method of shovel
cart cost per year, and not so
good. You must have some fixed
method and use that.
The bug-bear of the situation is the

counties in OUT State have sufficient
wealth to furnish enough income by
direct tax. Such counties as Durham,
have not. In North Carolina the ac-
cumulated wealth In cities Is taxed
for good roads, which is a great help
to our country. This is not true in
other states. By direct tax Pitt
would have to levy cents On
worth of property for a sufficient
income, now. it does not look to
a large future. Tax is generally
in repairing roads, and not good
roads are built by it.
A bond issue does not mean a high
tax, but means a definite sum of
money for the purpose. A cents

It should a county bond Issue

the towns have more wealth. The

of Greenville's wealth for building
