BROWN THOSE near sighted anti -suffragists who argue that woman's place is in. the home forget that this would be a sorry sort of a world if women held to that position.. The patrons of Public School No. 6 in Salem Township can tell you that.. This school had a man principal until the war called the men-to the colors.. Mrs. J. G. Brown, of Weeksville. R. F. D. 1, then and there was persuad ed to take over the school.. .Her place was in her home, but the, community needed herand she gave herself to the school last winter.. Last fall the school committee and the county superinten dent again found themselves in a predi cament, the school term hard upon them and no principal available. .Again Mrs. Brown took the school and is making a splendid record.. In addition to her school duties she' keeps house and finds time to look after her husband and three small children.. Last summer she had a garden and a cotton patch.. She put up 200 quarts of vegetables from her garden and sold $100 worth of cot ton, investing the money from the cot ton in War Savings Stamps. She is active in ever social and patriotic movement in her community. One play whifh she staged netted $30 for Red Cross work. Recently she and he assistant, Miss Stillman,. gave a box supper which realized $67.16 with which to buy a globe, a dictionary, pictures, charts, curtains, etc. for the school; BETTER DRINKING WATER ON THE FARM Experiment Station Bacteriologist Gives Excellent Advice ELIZABETH CITY, N.

The thought is bad enough, water is the same as taking a mild dose of poison, due to the presence of de caying organic matter and also to the activities o'f the bacteria. Not only may the water be poisonous, but the bacter ia themselves are very likely to be of such a specie that they would be able p cause typhoid, dysentary, or other forms of sickness. The reality may be found in many North Carolina wells or cisterns, be cause of overlooked or neglected con tamination in the source of supply. This is the time of the year when re pairs -may be most conveniently made to both welf or cistern, and a pure supply of water assured for use dur ing the summer. ' Pur water is clear, absolutely with out vaste or odor, and when freshly drawn, sparkles. If the water used for drinking purposes has either a smell or taste, something is wrong and that something should be attended to AT ONCE. The "At Once" part of the program is emphasized in order" that future cases of sickness may.be avoid ed. Even if the water is apparently in good shape, a thorough examination should be made to be sure that there are n crevices through which an out side contamination might enter. A well is merely a reservoir for the storage of underground water, just as a cistern is a reservoir for storing rain water. If surface, or polluted water gst:3 into either of them, the whole supply is contaminated and its use for drinking purposes becomes a dan gerous practice. Avoid such a condition of affairs by repairing all possible "leaks in and about the well of cistern. The well curbing should be cemented on the outside from a point three feet below the ground level, to the top and earth banked against this in such a manner that all surplus water will drain' away from and not into the -well. The water should be pumped off and all sediment remov ed from the bottom and sides of well or cistern. The cover should receive careful attention to avoid a leak of any kind. If the cover is made of wood, all partially decayed planks should be re moved, careful attention paid to the fitting of cover on top of well to keep out frogs and insects, and the crack filled with some waterproof substance asphalt or tar. .
