The most Important need in North
Carolina is the Torrens system of
Land Registration, said Mr. John A.
Wilkerson, of Belhaven, who is doing
more to drain and put fertile land
on the market than any man in East-
North Carolina.
Mr. Wilkerson is right, and large
experience in buying and selling land
makes his opinion- of value. Proceed-
upon the necessity of this great
reform Mr. Wilkerson I own

I can take that stock to any bank

money on it. It costs mo nothing to
do so and the fact that I am borrow-

But if have worth of land
or more, or a little home or
farm, and need to borrow money
on it I have to pay an attorney to ex-
the title. I have to pay him
to write a mortgage, and the fact
that I have borrowed the money is
put on record in the court house, thus
advertising my private business. And
this trouble, expense and publicity
are made necessary every time I wish
to borrow money on land. It is a
hardship and a burden upon
of land that makes dealing in land
slow and costly whereas it is to the
interest of the State that land trans-
should be easy and
that everybody will wish to in-
vest their money in
Not long ago Mr. Eugene C. Mas-
of Richmond, Va., discussed at
length the Torrens system. The
Protective Association, which
favored the Torrens system, request-
ed Mr. to prepare a brief state-
showing the wisdom of that
system. In response to that request,
Mr. wrote the following ad-
succinct and comprehensive
summary of the argument for the
Torrens system.
State claims to be the owner

of all her lands. This ownership first
appears in her lands grants and
now found in the exercise of the
right and eminent domain, or
and in levying taxes.
and exercising the orig-
rights and powers,
it is the duty of the State to grant
good titles to her citizens and to en-
able them to keep their titles good
under the just administration of
equitable land laws.
plain duty has never hereto-
fore been performed by the State, and
the time has now come when she
must meet her high obligation.

takes days and weeks to make an

It must be frankly recognized in
considering patent medicines that,
broadly and philosophically speaking
two risks have to be taken with all
of the risk that the medicine,
though a useful remedy in this dis-
ease, may not find your particular
case or stage of it; and the further
risk that you may not have the dis-
ease you think you have, in which
ease, of coarse, the poor medicine, will
be a hopeless misfit.
Bearing these facts in mind, it if.
obviously only the course of prudence
and good sense to all powerful
or drastic remedies of this class, such
as, if they do not do good, have the
power to do harm. Remedies, there-
fore, are advertised to cure
that are guaranteed to cure
every case or money refunded; that
never been known to etc.,
are good things to let alone, even if
you give credence to their claims.
Usually, as a matter of fact, the claim
of these remedies are
based upon one of two
or some most
commonly opium or alcohol.
There is also another universal
source of risk which it is only fair
to mention, and this is the
of knowing what you are
The vast majority of so-called
patent medicines have nothing that
is patent about them except the name
or trademark. Really to patent a
remedy would be necessary to dis-
close its ingredients and to prove
that they have never before been used
for the cure of disease; and this,
for obvious reasons, is the last thing
that the proprietors t-f these
dies would think of doing. The com-
position of the remedy is their most
rained secret, which naturally they
guard with most Jealous care, and
it is inevitable in the very nature
of the case any one who takes
a dose of it is taking it in the dark.

Terrace Farming.
Jean Napoleon Ingram, of
Park has recently mad i a tour
through Georgia and Alabama and
observed the terrace system of farm-
in those States, by which fields
are protected from washes and the
soil preserved from destruction by
heavy rains. Every slope or hillside
field, he says-is crossed by a series
of terraces of sufficient fall to guide
the water the land into main
ditches, that carry it from the farms.
By such means the slope and hillside
soil is left on the fields and the wash-
of gullies by winter and spring
Hoods prevented. The land is there-
by preserved for posterity. The
and Alabama fields are not de-
year by year by unscrupulous
cultivation and butcher farming; their
crop producing elements and value
are held in reserve for future genera-
Such a system of land
should be followed in North Car-
where the fields are fast be-
coming barren by the old slave
of farming, the soil carried from
the fields by rainfall, and the farms
made worthless, where future tillers
will find the land a waste of naked
and furrowed clay.
He thinks that the best way to
bring the matter to the attention of
the country land holders, is for the
Farmers Union to charter a train and
sell round trip excursion tickets to
Montgomery for to allow the
to investigate and study the Ala-
and Georgia system of terrace
farming, and enable them to intro-
duce similar soil protection and es-
similar land improvements
in North Carolina.
A special car would possibly ac-
the first excursion, and
the Southern Railroad would doubt-
less make low rates for such an en-
as transportation interests
are by improvement in soil
cultivation along railway lines. The
professor also thinks it would great-
aid agriculture for the farmers to
bring some tenants from those States
familiar with the terrace system to
show how such improvement can best
be effected on the farms of this

Tilling the Soil With Dynamite.
Probably no stranger use for
has ever been devised than its
substitution in place of the plow for
the tilling of clay land. It is
put to such a use on a considerable
experimental scale in Kansas and by
a planter of S. C, and
a picture in the September number
of Popular Mechanics shows how it
was done.
The cartridges were planted three
feet apart, in rows, and at a depth
of four feet. The holes wore made
by driving crowbars to the desired
depth. The dynamite was exploded
by a line of men, provided with red
hot irons . The line went rapidly
down the field, the explosives fol-
lowing the men in a steady roar that
was deafening. The explosions threw
clouds of soil feet into the air and
covered the men from head to
with dust and dirt.

the Farm.
Copyright, 1910, by American Press
THE farm is no longer the
lated, lonely place that it used
to be or that many people
seem to think it is yet. Farm-
under modern conditions is a
and in most coses is coming to
be run in a business way. The first
step in the modernizing of the farm
came with the introduction of the
free delivery in 1807. Put in at first
as a sort of experiment, a concession
to the insistent demands of the
grange and other or-
It spread rapidly and soon
became indispensable. It was a potent
factor in waking up the farmers. One
of the first and greatest results was
that the dally paper for the farm was
made a possibility.
Before the advent of the rural free
delivery the farmer who kept within
a week of the markets was doing well.
As a result ho usually managed to
strike all the slumps in the market
when he had stock or grain to soil.
With a market paper delivered at his
gate each morning he could follow
prices of farm produce closely and
take advantage of a rising market.
This one factor alone has paid the cost
of the rural free delivery many times
The market reports were not the
only part of the paper that benefited
the farmer. He no got his news
a week old, but Lad it served up
most as hot as If be had lived in town.
This daily contact with the things that
were happening In the world bright-
him up, rubbed off the dust and
gave him a new interest in life.
The shiftless farmer who went to
town two or three times a week on the
pretense of the only to
waste half a day or so each time and
maybe come home in the
was deprived of his excuse
and fell into the habit of spending his
extra time fixing up about the place.
The farmer who had boon
became more enterprising
and more time to put his ideas
Info ;
A with the It. F. D. came better
i, when the farmer did go to
town lie could make the trip In much
less I hue than he did before. Ills
papers and magazines made him as
well informed as any of the business
men of the town. The days of the
were numbered.
Alone with the It. F. D. came a
increase in cue circulation
the agricultural papers. The old type
of papers edited by men who had seen
little of farming except from a car
window came to an end about this
time, and their places were taken by
papers edited by men who had grown
up on the soil and who had never got
very far away from it. These pa-
taught the farmers the value of
better methods. They taught what
these methods were and how they
could be applied. Above all, they in-
spired the farmers to do the best they
knew how, to respect their calling and
to put It on a business basis.
Along with the It. F. D. came the
telephone. Some of the first-lines were
little more than cheap instruments
to a barbed wire fence, but
served the purpose. Then follow-
ed lines put up willow poles and
finally modern lines substantially
built and as efficient us money could
buy. An automatic device to prevent
any one listening except the parties
talking is in use some localities.
Most communities prefer the party
line, however, because of its social
features. Often after supper on a
stormy winter evening some one will
put In a general call and furnish some
instrumental music for the benefit of
every one on the line. Then some one
else sing a song, some one will
run off a few musical records on a
phonograph, and an otherwise lonely
evening will be passed pleasantly.
Immediately after dinner Is generally
conceded to he the
hour at the phone. They will stand
and visit, often a dozen of them at a
time, until the proverbial loneliness of
farm life is entirely forgotten.
The principal use of the telephone is
for business. The modern farmer re-
lies upon his telephone as much
does the business man. Most of the
lines are connected with the
central switchboard in town, so that
a toll call will get any one In the
or In the state. Market and
reports are out over the rural
lines at certain hours each day. If the
market Is especially good the farmer
can call up the local buyer and con-
tract his hogs once, or If he prefers
he can call up the railway freight of-
and arrange to have a stock car
ready for him the next morning. In
most communities the practice of
at thrashing time Is
followed. This used to necessitate
a day's work notifying the neighbors,
and then frequently it all had to be
dine over again on account of a break-
down to the machine or bad weather.
Now the notifying is nil done in a few
moments by phone.
On many occasions a prompt
phone call has brought the nearest
doctor to the bedside of a sick child
who would no I have lived until a trip
could made to town for the doctor.
This is of the reasons that a
phone Is seldom taken out after It has
once been put In. In a hundred minor
ways the telephone has become
to the farm folk. Often after tho
farmer has left for town his wife will
think of something she wants him to
get. All she has to do is to call up the
store where he does his trading and
leave a message for him. When tho
young folks want to give a party the
telephone will quickly bring In every
one In the neighborhood. A stray
horse Is soon located and brought back
borne. In weather too bad for the mall

can received over the
One other step Is necessary to enable
the farmer to make the greatest use of
tho rural free delivery and tho
It Is the parcels post. Local
merchants objected to a parcels
post on tho ground that It would favor
the mall order houses at their expense.
This can be overcome by giving a low-
rate to packages that go over a rural
route only. A parcels post of this kind

master general. Ho figures that It

can order parcels from town and have
them delivered at his door a. few hours
later. Things which he cannot get in
his local town he can procure from a
mail order house in two or three days.
The farmers are united in demanding
this convenience, and it Is bound to
come before long.
The final step in the emancipation
of tho farmer was taken when the
line and tho automobile came Into
general use. The trolley has meant
better schooling for his children. It
has brought theaters, lectures and bet-
churches within reach of the
family. Best of all. the
with the cities has brought about
a much needed awakening of the
try schools and the country churches.
The trolley is a great convenience In
taking produce to market. Most of
the cars will stop at any farmhouse
or crossroads to pick up a can of
cream, a orate of chickens or a pas-

move Into the country only to have
a place to live while still
carrying on their business in the city.
Once in the country few of them ever
regret the change. Most of them say
that they would not go back to the
city to live under any consideration.
What the trolley lines are doing for
the more thickly settled districts, good
roads, automobiles and driving horses
are doing for those communities which
are not yet densely enough populated
to support a trolley line. The good
roads movement started with ad-
vent of the R. F. D. While country
roads in many places are far from be-
ideal as yet, still the length of
time they are not fairly passable
has been reduced to a minimum. Most
Of the main roads are well graded, and
nearly every farmer has a road drag
with which to keep the road bis
farm smooth. Graveled roads are be-
coming common, and macadamized
and oiled roads are being extended
into the country.
All these modern Improvements have
added much to the profits of farming.
They have added more to pleasures.

10th day of September is fast
drawing near, when it behooves us
to name our choice of our party for
the various county offices. I wonder
how many farmers have thought who
would best represent them in the
next House and Senate Did you
that most any bill for the bet-
of the doctor, lawyer or
merchant's business could be easily
passed in any legislature
Now, Bro. Farmer, have you not

law which would and your
neighbor advantages with the pro-
man The farmer with his
tract of land should be on the
same proportionate footing with the
man with his thousands of acres, his
big bank account, stocks and bonds.
Just so long as we have to pay a
lawyer to to search the
title to our real estate and pay him
a bonus of to to write the
mortgage so we can get the money
all right, just so long will we have

we ever had a man in North Carolina
to try to pass a more needed measure
which would be of such universal
uplift to the farmer The man who
owns his bank stock, rail road stock,
or local corporation stock takes it to
his nearest bank, writes his . name
across the back thereof, signs a note
for the amount of money desired, gets
it and goes on his way rejoicing, but
poor Mr. Farmer, he may be
rich in who owns possibly
several times the amount in real
estate, has to pay a lawyer to search
the title and his fee for writing the
mortgage. But does it stop there
By no means. The clerk of the
court and register of deeds
both have to have their share. Is that
all No; the mortgage is then placed
on record and thereby published to
the world of his encumbrance, and
the condition thereof. And if it be a
deed and a small mistake is made
therein, woe unto our courts, for
there will be labor for you.
In like manner as we championed
the leadership of Hon. John H. Small,
our representative in congress for his
service in the advancement
of our interests and the drainage of
our low lands, so let us on the 10th
day of September cast our
ballot for that sterling gentleman
and farmer, Hon. R. R. Cotten, to
represent us In the next senate, and
on the day of November next,
elect by the largest vote any
man has received In Pitt county for

of an Agricultural People.
by Mr. O. L. Joyner, for
Messrs. Collins and of
Norfolk, Va., representatives at a
North Western Immigration Bureau.
The soil and climate of Eastern
North Carolina are about as near
ideal as can be found in a temperate
zone. This is one of the oldest sec-
in the United States, and many
of the plantations of Eastern North
Carolina have woven around and
about them an historic association
that goes well back into the Colonial
period, yet there are many of these
old plantations that have, in the last
few years, been Improved by crop
and new management
are producing today larger crops of
the same products than is produced
per acre on much of the high priced
land of the northwest, and there is
no section of country in these United
States where a greater variety of pro-
duets of the soil can be made than
right here In Eastern North Carolina.
Many of the abandoned farms of this
section instead of becoming poorer
would, under skillful management, in-
crease in productiveness and value
but the old system of farming in this
section embraced the cultivation of
large areas on an extensive instead
of an intensive system, the result of
which was, In many instances, the de-
of the soil, and the loss
Of its productivity. Where these
farms have fallen Into hands of
men who have employed the
system, they have rapidly in-
creased in fertility, and all hough
land in this section can be purchased
at a much lower price than
character of land in the newer states,
every standpoint, it is
more valuable.
This section can produce almost
every crop that grown in the
Zone. Coin, col ion, tobacco,
-peanuts, fruits all kinds of
tables for home consumption and
for northern reach their
highest development here. The
money crops are tobacco, cot-
ton and peanuts. Some estimate of
the cost of producing- these crops,
with their comparative market value
may be of interest.
The actual cost of cultivating, fer-
harvesting and selling a crop
of tobacco depends largely upon con-
and the circumstances of the
farmer who makes it. To hire every-
thing done, at the present price of
labor the cost of cultivating, harvest-
and delivering an average crop of
tobacco on the market in an average
year will range from to
per acre. The average yield per acre
in an average year is from to
pounds. The average price at
which tobacco has fold the last
few on the Greenville market
has been from to cents. There
are exceptional cases, where some
farmers produce as much as 1500
pounds of to an acre, and
these farmers secure higher prices be-
cause of the superior quality of their
tobacco, and consequently, this class
of farmers have made a great deal of
money out of tho tobacco crop. The
purpose of tills article is to give to
those not with the
of our money crops a general
idea and therefor averages are men-
in general terms.
Cotton costs something less to
and market than tobacco, the
principal difference being in the cost
of the fertilizing material. The cot-
ton crop does not require anything
like the attention that tobacco does,
although it is a crop that would pay-
very well for the extra attention
given it. The yield of cot-
ton in this section, I judge, is from
to pounds of lint in an aver-
ago year. The cost of growing and
marketing a crop of cotton will run
from to per acre, where
the labor all has to be hired
Peanuts can be cultivated cheaper
than either of the other two crop,
requiring high grade commercial
fertilizer, and less cultivation,
though, like peanuts respond
profitably to good cultivation
The swamp lands of North
Carolina will yield anywhere from
five to fifteen barrels of corn to the
acre, which means from to
bushels. In some places in Beaufort
and Hyde counties, the yield of corn
is even than this. uplands
of this section produce an average of
from three to five barrels of corn to
the acre without fertilizer, but with
careful attention and the judicious
use of the right kind of fertilizer, the
corn yield in the uplands can be ma-
and profitably increased.
Owing to the close proximity of the
Gulf Stream to the Carolina coast
and the range of
on the west, which protect this
section blizzards and fierce
winds of the Northwest, the winter
climate of Eastern North Carolina is
about all that can be desired. There
are but a few days during the winter,
from December until March, when
most at any time farm work cannot
be carried on in comfort. We have
some hot. days in this section during
the summer, but generally speaking,
they are of short duration, and for
the full development of the crops are
necessary. However, the climate of
this section, as a whole, both summer
and winter, can hardly be improved
upon in any section of our country.
There is healthier in the
state than Eastern North Carolina.
The great
which all the people fear, who live
in other sections, is more a scare-
crow than anything else. Some of
the healthiest and
mens of humanity can found here,
while the general health of the sec-
compare favorably with even the
mountain section of the state Under
an act of the lust legislature the
drainage of the swamps of Eastern
North Carolina will reclaim millions
of acres of very rich land, and at the
same time, remove to a large extent
the cause of malaria.

In 1887, twenty-three years ago
this month, I took of a public
school, at what was then called Cali-
co Hill, which the people of that sec-
permitted me to teach, and gen-
paid me thirty dollars per
month. I boarded with the family of
the lute Mr. George Venters. The
people of that section were very good
and kind to me then, and since, in
my business career, some of the best
friends have ever had arc the
I came to know at that time. Al-
though actually engaged in the to-
business in Greenville since
soon after that time, I have not visited
i that section since. For some time
have promised to go down there,
and Monday evening I fulfilled that
promise. It seems to me but a short
time since I was there, but when I was
met at by the grown and
bright young man, son of Mr. H. C.
Venters, with whom as a boy I
when I boarded at his father's
I was forcibly reminded of the flight
of years.
I spent the night at the home of Mr.
H. C. Venters, and next morning to-
we rode around the country.
Although it has been more than
years, I have never seen more
evidence of thrift and progress
than there is in that section. Much
of the land thereabout that was then
an almost unbroken wilderness of
wood land has been cleared, and
crops are growing. The little
x school house in which I attempt-
ed to teach has been replaced by a
modern school building that would do
credit to any town. The post, office
at that time was Calico, and occupied
a small space in the back room of Mr.
store, the only place of
there. Our townsman,
of deeds, T. R. Moore, was in
charge of post office and
business of Mr. Venters. The Calico
