requires a load of 400,000 lbs. to crush the brick. The concrete

"According to tests made by the laboratory at the Engineering Department of University
of Illinois in 1917 the comparative strength of brick compared with concrete of the ordinary

OPPOSED TO STOCK LAW I
In reply to your article considering
Stock Law, I would say Representative
Saunders did the right thing when he
put the question of Stock Law to pop
ular vote. Right there he did the
right thing. People know what they
want, spite of the unreasonableness
of a few self interested people who look
at their own interest regardless of
others. My business may be a cashier
of a bank, or a renter or a day laborer;
let it be as it may. I should have the
same show. The people know what
they want, and let them have it.
Right wrones no one.
As for stock on the highways there
is not much of that for the simple
reason that there is but a little on
the highways for them, but of course
there are a few, and when I can't take
up for them with my "Tin Lizzie" or
you can't take up with your Marmon
car costing $4,350, then let us pay the
damages. When a bridge is out of
commission or a washout I readily take
up, because I know who the burden
will rest on, should I not consider my
neighbor whether poor or rich, and
have some respect for him as well?
There are thousands of acres of waste
land being grazed daily by cattle, hogs.
sheep and goats, which practically cost
the farmer nothing. The grazing alone
in Newland is worth $10,000 annually.
Newland produces at least $6,000 worth
of cattle annually and $2,000 worth of
sheep and of hogs $12,000 at least an
nually, geese at least $2,000 worth an
nually. Self says "I don't wanjt but
one cow, 6 or 8 sheep and geese and I
have no use for goats. My 50, 75, 150
:r -2,000 acr?.-- of waste land I had
rather grow up in briers, reeds and
bushes so if I went on it, I would have
to crawl through it, rather then let
some humble man's stoek graze it and
keep it open. Why, because he will
receive some benefit out of it, and if
we get the Stock Law, it will cost
Newland in wire, post, labor and' gates
at least $15,000 to build pastures prac
tically for their own needs with little
As for the city man, is he simple
enough to vote the Stock Law on the
farmers, and cut off their own sup
plies and double the cost of geese,
mutton, beef and pork, especially the
laboring man? Of course the rich
love to spend their money in luxury
and brag on it. They find fault, but in
a way of bragging they will tell you
when they bought a goose for $4.00 and
beef at 65c per pound. Any way you
cut off the supply and see where the
price will soar too. You have to but
cross the line over in Virginia and
see the results. Last year your
"Razor back" hogs sold in Berkley at
$0c per pound on the, hoof, and those
scrub cattle, (beef you call them) sold
for 65c per pound. I was told this by
responsible gentlemen neither rich nor
poor, but men of truth. No hogs or
cattle wants to interfere with good
roads if we had them. It is the roads
uncared for that they plunder and
wallow in pools of mud.
As for myself I have 815 acres of old
poor land, 23 head of cattle, 15 cows
which ought to come fresh next winter
and spring. To build pastures as need
ed in case of Stock Law, will cost, me
$1,000 which of course I will aim and
in the . long run I will get my money
back, if I live, out of ieor.e vho-purchase
of me, beef, miion cows, pork,
mutton and geese Thia is the sole
reason why some people are so wild
for Stock Law. They &es a wav to get
their own price for what they will have
to sell in the way of Stock. Most of
we farmers have . pretty fair fences
and 'will aim to hold them if we get
the Stock Law for our own interest.
The scrappings of our farms are worth
many thousand dollars to us farmers,
and we can't afford-to turn them out
for this reason. I .know what work
is and what it takes to make a living
on the farm. As the old saying is, I.
have been through all but fire for what
little I have. I have some debts over
me but I am grateful to God, and can
say with clear conscience that I don't
owe a dollar that I could not pay In
90 days if demanded by my creditors.
I am 56 years old and am not worry
ing over this life, but how much better
it would be for the humble people, no
one but God could tell, both in the
country and towns God in all his in
finite mercy created all this vegeta
tion for the benefit of man without any
selfish aim moss, worms, shade and
water in abundance and is no respect
er of persons, as far from selfishness
as the east is from the west ; ever
ready to help. Blessed be Hia
holy and exalted name. And the spirit
and the bride say come and let him
that heareth say come, anl let them
that is athirst come and whosoever
will let him the water of life freely ."-
Rev. 22-17. For God so loved the
world that he gave His only begotten
Son that whosoever believed in Him
should not perish, but have everlast
ing life. S. John, 3-16.

FALLS SAYS SOW OATS
County Agent G. W. Falls is urging
thjs farmers of Pasquotank to sow
oats in their cotton at the last cultivation-
of the cotton. He points out
that the oats will make an excellent
spring pasture early in the season, at
a time when every 'farm is deficient
in pasturage. The oats also prevent
plant food from leaching from the soil,
since ' this crop forms a turf which
helps to hold the fertility and organic
matter in the soil.
Mr. Falls states that the seed should
be sown at the rate of 1 bushels per
acre, and should be followed with the
plow at the last cultivation of the cot
ton. This cover crop is very inex
pensive, costing less than $2.00 per
acre, and the best varieties of oats for
the purpose are the Appier and the
Virginia Gray. He states that the seed
can be bought of local farmers at $1.25
per bushel, bags to be furnished by the

MISS NETTIE SANDERS
The hearts of an entire community
are saddened by the decease of Miss
Nettie Saunders of Poplar Branch,
Monday, July 7. She was the daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Saunders,
and was only 18 years old, being the
youngest of a family of seven.
While the other sisters and brothers
were in their different homes and places
of business, Nettie was always at home
with her mother and father, and when
she- fully realized that her young life
would soon be returned to the One
who gives and takes it back again, she
said, Mama, do not grieve for me:
I have put my trust in God, and while
I want to live, I have surrendered all
to Him. I shall find rest in God, and
I am just waiting for Him to take me
home where I can find ease from these
Nettie never murmured or complain
ed, but beautifully made her wishes
known. In the quiet of her home she
said, "Mama, I want them to sing over
my casket that Death is only a dream,
and I want to go there, don't you?
Tell Bertie, my dear schoolmate, to
sing this at my grave-" Ah I how sad
and yet so sweet to know that while the
little casket is covered with earth and
flowers that, the young life which end
ed so early here has left its radiance
shining in our hearts, to Brighten and
strengthen our faith in Him who is
able to make us look beyond the grave,
and find tender consolation in the
thought that Death is only a Dream.
Words cannot express the loneliness
of the home where she was so tender
ly nursed. The four brothers and two
sisters, the father and mother in the
dark shadow of their anguish and grief
are missing the gentle touch of her
little hand, which had so fondly car
essed them all. She seemed but a child
to them, and if it were not for the glow
ing expressions of her faith and the as
surance of seeing her again, they could
but break down under the weight of
their sorrow, but, comforted by this
assurance, they are bowing in humble
submission to Him who has given her
a home over there.
She was tenderly carried to her
grave by her loving schoolmates,
Johnnie Newbern, Merrell Evans Sam
McHarney, Grady Parker, Alvert Par
member of Mt. Zion M.,E. Church and
ker, and Clyde Walker. She was a
her funeral was conducted by Rev,
Waldrop in the absence of her pastor.
He beautifully expressed her pure life
in a benediction to those who are left
to mourn for , her.
