WHY THE INDEPENDENT
GOES TO $2.00 A YFAP
The subscription of THE INDE-
PENDENT will be advanced to $2.00
a.year on Jan. I, 1920. Keenino.the
subscription of this paper at $1.50
until that time means' that W. O.
Saunders will give his subscribers the
benefit of a money saving purchase
of paper made two months ago. The
paper used in the production of this

,nopa)ici win cost $ou to $o a ton
more than it fortnely cost. This
newspaper consumes a ton and a half
of paper a month.
Th6re is a world wide shortage of
paper. At a convention of a special
committee of the American Ncwspa-
per Publishers' Association in New
York last week, a resolution was
adopted urging the big daily news-
papers to cut down the size of their
papers, advance their subscription
price and advertising rates.
Newspapers that have heretofore
sought to increase their subscription
lists will seek ways to curtail their
number of subscriptions.
THE INDEPENDENT will receive
subscriptions at $1.50 a year until
Jan. I, 1920 only. Subscribers may
take advantage of this opportunity to
extend their subscription for one, two
or three years at that price.

THE REMINGTON ARMS UJUIC CO INC EHH
A first-aid kit costing less than two
dollars, and equipped to handle any ordi
nary sprains, cuts and bruises likely to
happen to the school children, has been
installed at Fork High School near Eliz
abeth City. The equipment includes an
tiseptics, salves, court plaster, absor
bent cotton, bandages, and other neces
sary articles for the treatment of ninor
hurts of all kinds, and it is believed
that it will adequately take the place
of a standard kit costing ten or twelve
dollars. This is the first school in the
county to be provided with a regular-first-aid
outfit, which is required by law
in all mills and factories employing a
number of hands far less than the en-
rollment of even the- small school plant,
i "With a view to providing some recre-
ation to the pupils or the school, a
I volley ball has been added to the athe-
letic equipment of the latter, at a cost
I of eight dollars, half of which has been
i naid fioin the private funds of Fork
! High School, and the remainder (ontri
I buted by the children. Likewise two ad-
! ditional large lamps have been purchased
j for the school' auditorium, at a total
i cost of J?20, half being given by the
Ladies Community Club of the district
and the remainder from the school funds.
With the generous assistance of the
Countv Hoard of Education a modern
steel dictionary holder has been bought
to support the large Webster's Inter
national Dictionary awarded to Fork
High School last spring as a premium
for 24 subscriptions to THE IXDE
j PENDENT. The school' won the first
! dictionary awarded by tins newspaper
at that time, beins some weeks ahead of
its nearest rival. A large map of the
United States given upon request by
Congressman Small, and a smaller map
of North Carolina given by the State
Corporation Commission have likewise
been added to the classroom equipment.
The largest enrollment in the history
of the school is recorded for the month
just ended, the final being 77 pupils.
Congestion in the primary department
made necessary the removal of these
grades from the auditorium stage to a
larger room downstairs, and the pur
chase of additional desks, etc., thus giv
ing temporary relief from the existing
crowded condition. It is hoped that
present arrangements will be sufficient
for at least another year. Following

in Elizabeth City I would say that our
debt is to the Negro." Mr. Cunningim

Because he preferred not to live with
his father, Albert Horner, a white man

a pardon issued . him by Governor Bick

he was returned to the county chain

FOODS and beverages canned,
packed or bottled have ycu ever
known one which' retained the true
flavor of the original fresh product?
Ever since foods and beverages have been
preserved 'for human consumption the
methods of preservation employed have
injured or destroyed their natural flavors.
Some foreign ingredient has been intro
duced, some treatment, unnaturcl in t':3
light of modern science, has been resorted to.
A war against oxygen!
The free oxygen in the product, solid or
liquid, was the cause of all the trouble.
Manufacturers have heretofore preserved
their products, more or less conscious of
the source of trouble, .haphazardly by
chemicals, cold storage or heat thus de
stroying the flavor and their natural con
stituents. But now an eminent scientist has dis
covered a wonderful process which upsets
all former methods and revolutionizes the
food and beverage industries. In the man
ufacture of Kovar Beverages, we call r the
Instead of using chemical preservatives,
cold storage or heat, which destroy true
flavor, the Kovar Process exhausts the
oxygen and substitutes in its place a harm
less, inactive gas. This gas protects both
the product and its natural flavor. It is
colorless, odorless, tasteless, and scientific
ally native to the beverages ve produce.
The Kovar Process is patented. Piel
Brothers are its first American licensees,
and the famous Kovar Beverages are pre
pared by it.
Trxze flavor at last I

whose greatest claim to your patronage

Kovar Process protects natural flavors
The Kovar Process protects all the nat

We have in our scientific station many
