The primaries are drawing near in truth they soon will be right here and Betsy's citizens may see if things shall go the same old way, of graft and peanut politics, the sad and sorry sort of 'fix we've been in all these many years (for which we merit darned few cheers). Let's bust the jinx and oust the gang which long has let our town go hang; which long has ruled by hook and crook to fill its private pocketbook. Beyond all camouflage or doubt we've got a town to brag about; the; beauty of each shaded street, the pretty homes, all trig and neat, the business section, nobby, trim, and full5 of hustle, pep arid vim; the storied, tranquil Pas quotank these give us spme small right to swank. Then why should we still tolerate a rule belike a feudal state, whose bosses who aspire alone to work new schemes to fill their own foul purses with our hard-earned chink?

Miss Albertson voices the opinion that many of the pictures shown in youth of the town and are not mak ing for good citizenship. She says the Elizabeth City are demoralizing to the mothers should band together and de mand educational pictures and pictures carrying wholesome morals.

SIX SPLENDID BODY TYTPfiS The financial advantage that farmers may derive from the cooperative ship ping of livestock to the larger market centers, when local markets are un satisfactory, was very clearly demon strated last week when a cooperative carload shipment of 72 hogs was made from Hyde County to the Richmond market. Believing that Hyde County farmers were not getting what they should for their hogs when sold locally, County Agent . Murray began advocating and encouraging cooperative carload ship ments to packer markets and was sue cessf ul in getting a number of his farm ers to try this- plan of marketing. The carload shipment last week netted the farmers consigning the hogs $591.39 more, after deducting all expenses and results were highly satisfactory. The allowing for shrinkage en route to mar ket, than the animals would have brought had they been sold at local prices. The best hogs in the shipment ' sold for 21 cents per pound, live, weight, in Richmond, the top price paid for hogs on that market last week. The successful cooperative market ing of hogs from Hyde County is of special interest, reports C. S. Jones, Specialist in Livestock Marketing, in asmuch as it was accomplished under somewhat adverse conditions. There being no railroad in the county, it was necessary to ship the hogs a part of the way by boat and later transfer them to a car to complete the trip by rail. How ever Mr. Jones finds that the farmers '.were highly pleased with the results and plans already are being made for making considerable number pf cooper ative shipments from that county" dur ing the next hog-marketing season. Equally satisfactory results have also been secured in a number of other counties in the State during the past few months, where the cooperative plan of shipping fat hogs thas been tried for the first time, and the indications are that this plan of marketing all classes of livestock will rapidly grow in favor over the State. "Aside from the fact that the cooper ative shipment of hogs to market en ables farmers to get full market price for their hogs, less actual cost of mar keting," says Mr. Jones, "it also causes them to realize that there is always a ready market for all fat hogs they can grow and provides a means of their placing .them on the packer market even though each farmer has only a few to sell. When these facts are more fully appreciated they will be a very important factor in bringing about in creased swine production in North Carolina, which we believe is desire-able." NEW STAT? DOG LAW IS NOT BEING ENFORCED Though the bill entitled "An Act to Tax Dogs in North Carolina and to Encourage Sheep Husbandry" became a law immediately at its ratification by the General Assembly, many dog ow ners over the State do not seem to un derstand its provisions. v According to R. S. Curtis, Animai Husbandman- of the North : Carolina Experiment Station, it has come to his attention recently that many sheep on different farms of the State: are being killed by roaming dogs, yet section 5 of the law recently passed slates speci fically that "No person shall allow his dbg over six months old to run at large in the night time unaccompanied by the owner, by some member of the owner's family,' or by some other person with the owner's permission. Any person Intentionally, knowingly and wilfully violating this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, shall be fined not exceeding fifty dol lars or imprisoned not exceeding thirty days, and shall also be liable in dam ages to any person injured or suffer ing loss" to his property or chattels." Mr. Curtis thinks that this section shows clearly that the recent damages inflicted on the sheep industry of the State have made some one liable for conviction under this law. As passed by the last Legislature, this law has for its purpose the protection and pro motion of the sheep industry, as -well as to modify the dangers to human health from mad dogs. However, un less the law is strictly enforce 1 by the county commissioners of the .lmerer-.t counties, it will be of small value in promoting the purposes for which it was intended. : : Put a Kodak In Your Pocket wherever you go.

A miscellaneous shower was staged. The hall, library and living room were similarly decorated with ferns, palms, and other potted plants, mass ed with a profusion of whit narcis sus, tulips, spirea and other cut flowers indigenous to springtime. JThe stair way was twined with southern smilax. A copious bridal shower of lilies of the valley tied with white and satin rib bon wasi suspended from the electric light in each of the three rooms. A wedding bell in the hall and cupids in the other rooms lent a festive atmos phere suggestive of the hymeneal oc casion approaching. Pink candles and pink shaded lights added a witchery to the romantic scene, that was irres istible. . . The guests were met at the door by Mrs. Miles Brown and Mrs. W. H.
