INVENTS A CALCULATOR
Little Machine, Costing But a Few
Dollars, Adds, Multiplies, Sub

J. G. Baum, an Elizabeth City man,
has invented a calculating machine
that has found a manufacturer and is
1 finding its way on the market. Mr..
Baum has perfected a machine that
adds, multiplies, subtracts and divides,
that takes up only a small space on
one's desk or counter, weighs less than
five pounds and sells at a price that any
individual can afford to pay. Mr. Baum
has been working on the invention for
: several years, but has had very little to
say about it until now. It is now being
manufactured for Mr. Baum by a com
pany in Grand Rapids, Mich. Else
i here in this newspaper Mr. Baum tells

73 per cent of the planting done as
compared with 78 per cent plowing and
55 per cent planting done last year.

Mr. L. L.. Winder and T. H. Old have
sold to The Washington Beaufort Land
Co., the Wood farm near Fentress, Va.,
for $40,000. This property is now being
sub-divided to sell in small farms.
There are five nice two story dwellings,
a good store, and many other small
dwellings on this property. Mr. Win

Norfolk County, that he has been as

and home seekers. He also has some

The Elizabeth City Chamber of Com
merce has recently said to its secre
tary Lorenzo D. Case, "Go ye forth
into all the country for miles around
and about Elizabeth City and do good
to all the people, serving the neighbors
of Elizabeth City and promoting their
progress and well being even as ye
promote the progress and wel
fare of Elizabeth City." Of course
the Chamber of Commerce didn't say
it Just this way, but it meant the same
thing. Realizing that anything that
helps to build up our neighboring
counties helps to build up our . own
city, the Chamber of Commerce has
authorized Secretary Case to get in
touch with all the northeastern North
Carolina countteBLljOiem. with
their problems, whenever ana wnere
ever he or the Chamber of Commerce
can be of help. The Chamber of Com
merce is limited as to funds, but to
enable Secretary Case to get around
over the counties public spirited men
in Elizabeth City and vicinity are rais
ing a fund to buy him a Henry Ford
gadabout. Individuals and firms who
haven't contributed to this fund should
deem it a splendid opportunity to show
the right spirit.
CUT YOUR SHOE BILLS
"Heretofore, soles never lasted me
more than three months, because my
work keeps me walking constantly on
cement. But I have worn a pair of
Neolin Soles now for more than three
months, and judging from then- present
condition, they will last three times as
long." So says G. L. Kerr, manager
of an automobile organization in
Geneva, N. Y. - . '
This extra wear given by Iseolm
Soles not only makes the shoes soled
with them cheaper by the year than
other shoes, but the price you pay in
the first place is sometimes less than
for shoes of only ordinary wear.
You can get Neolin-soled shoes in
many styles for every member of the
family. Try these long-weanng, com
fortable and waterproof soles on youf

have them. They are made : by The

India's production of gold is prin

oldest gold-producing country in the
world. Mining is carried on princi

on the industry. Other countries
which produce gold in small quanti

EVERY COUNTY TO HAVE A
BOARD OF PUBLIC WELFARE
The State Board of Charities and
Public "Welfare are required to appoint
three persons in each county who shall
serve without pay and act as a county
board of charities and public welfare.
It is probable that two men and one
woman will be appointed in each coun
ty. The county board meets with the
county superintendent of public wel
fare and advises with him as to his
work of general welfare in the county.
