N. C, Aug.
31.-Tired of life, tired of his
family, which he had forsaken,
and loaded with whiskey, Louis
aged about years,
yesterday afternoon entered the
drug store of P. A. Thompson
and swallowed a two-ounce vial
of laudanum.
Doctors worked and used an
electric battery for three hours,
a current of volts being turn-
ed on the man. He is, however,
in a precarious condition.
Slowing Up Process
And a recession in the Cost of
doing things is inevitable- It is
certain that the
wages and in prices has gone too
far and must be stopped. Prices
must come down in commodities
ready for consumption and the
cost to the consumer must be
lessened. The cost of carrying
on business while it is profitable
has so absorbed and near-
everything is at a
valuation. This condition brings
its direct results to bear upon
the working mar. The retail
merchant, of course, suffers ac-
as he is directly de-
pendent upon the wage-earner-
Industrial enterprises must
don development This means,
as a matter of course, that, lets
material will be used and that
less labor will be employed.
When the demand for labor dim-
and men are out of work
there will be a competition that
will necessarily bring wages
for labor cost must be re-
in order to bring prices
down. Prices must come down
in order to revive the demand
for materials. Persistence to
this process will only aggravate
the situation. There is sure to
be resistance because working
men seldom realize that they are
the worst sufferers from high
prices, since the advance in the
cost of living that is, of what
wages buy, keeps ahead of the
advance in wages
What labor most needs is to
keep up the volume of
and keep down its cost.
When rising prices produce a
check production the brunt
of reaction is felt first by labor,
and it has no reserve to fall pack
The process of adjustment is
slow and difficult. But the soon-
this process begins the less
severe and prolonged it will be-
There is need of easing up It is
certainly no time for speculative
movements which will interfere
with conserving strength for the
fall demands. It is a time for
conservative calculation, cautious
and preparation for en-
durance of strain as cannot
be Journal.
Mr. J. F. Raises Them
Mr. J- F. who was
formerly a farmer in the
section of Beaufort county
and a large tobacco grower,
usually has something to tell the
newspaper man when he comes
this way. On a recent visit here
he told us that because of the
scarcity of labor and trouble to
control hands, he rented out his
farm and the first of this year
moved to Ayden where he rent-
ed from Smith Brothers a house
with an acre or two of land
Loving to do a little cropping
himself, he set about cultivating
the patch of land around his
home, which he said lie found
very productive because of the
line fertilizers the Smith boys
had been putting on it. His
crop this year was mainly
nips and beets, and he says he
raised some whoppers, some
nips growing as large as
inches in circumference.
Mr. went on to tell that
his wife raised chickens too, and
whenever a hard rain came it fell
to his lot to get the biddies under
shelter. One day a heavy
downpour he could not find a
favorite hen and her brood in
their accustomed roaming places.
After wading around in the rain
for some time he went to the
turnip patch and was surprised
to see the hen's head sticking
out the of a large turnip. An
investigation showed that
had eaten out the inside of the
turnip and the shell made a good
coop which the hen had taken to
protect her brood from rain.
Mr. says he can raise
hen coop turnips for anybody
that wants them.
