that their plaything were the world's
most valuable articles of commerce.
It Is only as a people becomes en-

undeveloped resources. Pitt county
has long since reached the stage of
true appreciation of her

way of developing her magnificent

It was Indeed an inspiring scene

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

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

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
conserve them.
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

The second speaker was Mr. Lester

said he had a long ways to

tide should turned from tile city

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.

Wherein We Fail.
In his address before the
Union, Maj. William A. Graham, State
Commissioner of Agriculture, made
the startling statement that whereas
the State of North Carolina received
every year from thirty-five to forty
million dollars for its cotton crop,
sent out more than that sum for meat
and bread and supplies that could be
grown or produced upon North Caro-
It is Just here where North Caro-
fails, and it is the mission of the
Union, the Alli-
the Department of Agriculture,
and the press to work In harmony to
put an end to this unwise system of
that stands like a lion In the
path of agricultural prosperity.
North Carolina farms ought to pro-
duce all the meat and corn sold In
the State and help supply the North-
markets with everything we eat.
It is gratifying to see the farm leaders
bringing these matters to the
of the farmers, and It is more
than gratifying to sec the progress
that is being made in that direction.
Many farmers are wide awake the
doctrine of and Is more
popular than ever in the history of
the State. A leading merchant in
Raleigh, who Is himself also a farmer,
says be believes more progress has
been made agriculture in North
Carolina during the past two years
than In the previous twenty years. The
progress by many farmers has been
marked. The need Is that this ex-
ample shall leaven the whole country.
