Great Crowd at Kirksey Yes
The Kirksey community had a re
. cord crowd at the short course and
demonstration yesterday. More than
500 people were in attendance at the
day session and at the night meeting
the tent was filled to overflowing. The
moving pictures proved very popular.
The day's program began at 10
o'clock with an interesting and en
thusiastic talk by Mr. Mobley, follow
. ed by a very forceful talk on Educa
. tion by County Superintendent T. E.
. Dorn. Mr. Dorn came at the request
of trustees of the several schools
. which have under consideration the
. matter of consolidation.
Mrs. Howie talked interestingly
about her visit to England and more
especially her visit to the Royal Dairy
A barbecue dinner was served at 1
o'clock and the program resumed at
2:30. Mr. Mobley again addressed a
large crowd on a subject which might
be called "Education which fits one
to do the things of this life." Mr. Mob
ley used some unique and well pre
pared charts which made his talk
The machinery demonstration be
gan at 4:30. The tractor, plowing,
harrowing and pulverizing demon
stration was held in a nearby pas
ture, and was f ollowed by the grind
ing demonstration. During this time
Mrs. Howie addressed a large crowd
of ladies on the subject of Dairying.
The motion pictures began at sun
down and continued until 10 o'clock.
Geraty Gives Advice.
J. W. Geraty, a truck planter of
South Carolina, declared that if the
proposed duty was made effective the
cost of potash would be prohibitive to
farmers. He told the committee that
to produce nearly normal crops the
first year the German supply was cut
off, because of the accumulated a
mount in the land, but said that for
the second year the yields fell off 30
per cent and that this year crops on
land for which potash was necessary
would be only 25 to 30 per cent of
normal. The American product, he
said, is inferior to foreign potash.

To Be No Reduction in Cothing
There is to be no reduction in the
present high price of clothing. On
the contrary, the cost of cotton and
woolen goods is going up steadily and
will continue to rise.
"The sky is the limit," yesterday
declared one of the largest clothing
manufacturers in the United States,
whose factories are located in this
city. "We have arrived at a" new price
level, and it is certain there will be no
reduction for many years to come,"
he stated. "Probably by 1930 there
may be a gradual decline in the price
of textile industry products, but in
the meanwhile cotton and woolen
goods are due for phenomenal price
Especially in cotton goods does he
look forward to an even more rapid
increase in price that has marked any
period since the beginning of the
great war. The reason for the recent
advance in cotton prices is supplied
in the department of agriculture's re
cent report on crop condition: 70 per
cent stands the lowest ever reported
for June. Then, too, there is a reduc
tion of 300,000,000 acres in the pre
viously planted area estimate. All this
points to a short crop. Also there ex
ists and will continue to exist for
some time to come a tremendous la
tent demand for goods and a rela
tive shortage of, workers caused by
the war. The greater the demand the
higher the price, and as the cost of
the product is 75 per cent labor, the
resultant hngh prices are inevitable.
Yet in spite of the rapidly increas
ing prices in clothing, both cotton and
woolen, trade was never so brisk de
clared one of the vice presidents of
the Baltimore Bargain House. "The
demand for clothing is almost in ex
cess of the possibility of supply," he
contended. "This demand will not di
minish materially till devastated Eu
rope establishs herself on a peace
time production basis. I am in agree
ment with those who believe that this
reconstruction in business is going to
tax our efforts perhaps even harder
than did the war. But I believe there
is cause for rejoicing in these condi
tions even though accompanied by
high prices, for one must remember
it is not in its last analysis the price
one has to pay, but the relation this r
price bears to one's own income."-I

Bad Teeth Cause Tremendous
A thoughtful business man anc
farmer, who has observed the almos!
universal neglect of the teeth bj
many farm folk and who has suffer
ed from the inefficienty which bac
teeth produce as follows: "I feel thal
few of us realize the amount of time
that is lost, to say nothing of the suf
fering that is caused these people by
Onr friend is entirely correct, how
ever. The loss in efficiency, time and
suffering from bad teeth by the
masses of country people is a tre
mendous one, which might be largely
prevented. As a matter of economy
the nation, state or community could
afford to pay for the service required
and save money by the investment.
When we started out to pick two
or three millions of our best young
men to make soldiers out of them we
not only rejected some because of
the bad condition of their teeth, but
we also sent dentists with every unit
to repair and maintain in the best
possible condition the teeth of those
who were in every w^y sound and
Why this care on the part of the
Government regarding the teeth of
our soldirs? To maintain sound,
healthy men, able to stay well and
fight strong. A soldier, unfit for ser
vice, because of indigestion, rheuma
tism, or any other of the many dis
eases produced or aggravated by bad
teeth, is an economic loss. It costs
more to maintain a sick man than a
well one in any walk of life.
If, then, it is sound practice and
economical to give careful attention
to the teeth of our soldiers, why is it
not sound economy to preserve the
health and efficiency of the citizen in
civil life, by giving the same assist
ance to those who through lack of
knowledge of its importance will not
give attention to their own teeth?
Some attempt has been made to
guard the health, and as one feature,
to look ofter the teeth of the children
in some of our schools; but as a rule
this has been confined to the children
of the city schools. These children
generally need help along these lines
less than the children of the country,
because they come in closer contact
with dentists and doctors, who largely
live in the cities and towns. As in
many other lines, those most in need
of such service have not been reached
until recently. Now the State of
North Carolina is making a deter
mined effort to look after the teeth
of country school children as care
fully as the teeth of city school chil
dren have been looked after. We hope
this movement will spread until every
Southrn state does its duty in this
Using Rural Telephones.
The telephone line in thc country
is considered a necessity these days.
Farmers will no longer be isolated.
Present day requirements make ready
and easy communication necessary.
The time has come when market
ing farm products is one of the most
urgent of the farmer's duties. What
satisfaction is there in producing
large crops when they do not pay a
profit upon the labor and capital re
quired to produce them? And who en
joys having perishable produce de
terioate on hand when there are peo
ple wanting to pay a fair price for it?
The telephone often finds the buyer
and then directs the seller how to
reach him at least < expense and
For information and pleasure ru
ral telephones have grown dn popu
larity and lines should be extended
till every community is put in touch
with the towns and cities. Better
roads have increased the demand for
telephones. For even if the roads are
good no one is anxious for a business
trip over them when the telephone
will answer the purpose.-Farm and
Likes Ford One-Ton Truck.
In solving the farmer's transpor
tation problems, the Ford one-ton
truck I consider unequaled for effi
cient, economical and dependable
transpo' l.ition. I thf nk it is one of the
best on the market. The grain and
farm body were both especially de
signed and constructed for farm use.
With the grain body, grain can be
handled in the quickest way. You do
not have to lose time in sacking, and
this means a lot of time saved if you :
have a lot of grain to handle. The '
body is grain-tight in every way. It
is made with sills, good floor and side
panels. It is braced well, and you can i
haul forty-five bushels of grain at a j
time. The end gate is removable, hav- .
ing a 9x12 inch opening that you can 1
open when you don't want to open
the entire end gate. '
The farm body for this truck is one
of the most useful that was ever
made. It can be used for hauling any
kind of a load. For hauling stock it
is fitted with stock racks that can be
regulated to any height desired. For
hauling bulky objects the stakes and
panels may be entirely removed.
