Out .in Wisconsin, the school children
directed by a live school officer recently
took stock of the 3,412 farm tomes in
one county. Here is what they found.
498 country homes supplied with run
ning water. '.
.320 had bath-rooms and inside toHets.
407 had power washing machines. ,
520 had electric and . acetylene lights.
129 had open-air sleeping porches.
850 had screened porches.
918 had pianos.
1,651 had daily newspapars.. .
1,516 had current magazines.
2,126 had farm papttrs.
1,878 had automobiles.
, 97 had gasoline tractors.
139 had fruit-spraying outfits.
A 903 had incubators. . .
127 had milking machines.
1,234 had silos. ..
They found 19 creameries and twenty
cheese factories in this one county.
It is significant that nearly nine' ot
every ten of these farm homes were oc
cupied by owners. The farm tenant homes
were only 398. Nearly anything worth
while can happen in au area of home
owning farmers, and nearly everything
falls to pieces under the curse of exces
sive farm tenancy schools, churches,
Is there any county in North Carolina
that has the home and arm equipments
of this Wisconsin county?
How does Pasquotank, for instance
compare with this Wisconsin county?

All community committeemen and for
that matter every other person who is
interested in the life of his community
should have an intimate acquaintance with
and sympathetic attitude toward the edi

Many times the person who interests
himself in community affairs thinks of
the local editor only when he washes to
make use of him to give publicity to some
meeting or other enterprise. At other
times he is all too likely to have only
words of criticism for the publisher and
The person who thinks that the editor's
job is a bed of roses has little realization
of what it means to get out every week
even a reasonably good country newspa
ner. The past months have been espe
cially trying ones for the small papers.
Coupled with the high cost of the wnite
paper, has beri the increasing difficulty
of getting help and the high wages which
printers have been in a position to de
mand. The old-time country printer, further,
has become almost extinct! and an all
round printer is almost a necessitiy in the
country office. The publisher cannot
afford to hire a specialist in all "the dif
ferent branches of the printing busines.
He must have a man .who can set type,
feed a printing press and perhaps run a
linotype machine, and yet in the printing
business, as in all businesses, the tenden
cy is towards specialization.
The newspaper is not t-o much a busi
nes enterprise as it a local institution,
and in proportion to what he contributes
to the life of the community the aver

country preacher or the country school
teacher. He works almost as long Hours
as the farmer and cannot feel that he
is off dutv during any of his waking
hours. Just so sure as any event hap

family knows just so surely will .some
one criticise him if he fails to make
mention of that event in the paper.

The wok planned for Pasquotank
County Canning Club girls by the Home
Demonstration agent, comprises a short
course in sewing and cooking as well as
in canning. In the sewing course, each
girl will make for herself one three piece
suit trimmed with her own handiwork,
either embroidery, tatting or crochet. In
the cooking course, the girls are being
given a practical course in the making of
loaf bread, rolls, biscuits, and egg bread.
These to be judg"l in October by compe
tent judges. In the canning course, the
girls are to put in their mother's pan
tries 150 containers of canned fruits and
vegetables, .preserves, pickles and jellies.
And to put on the market. as many cans
as she can get up and wishes to sell.
whole fruit or uniform pieces of fruit in
the can, the color of the fruit, the weight
and the flavor. The flavor is often in
jured by letting peeled fruit stand too
long before cooking.. Prepare at one time
only as many cans as can be processed
fimmediately. Let "Straight from the
vine to the can," be the motto. Never
can stale fruit. Do not use artificial pre
servations of any kind. The cheapest,
surest, and only safe way is to sterilize
by means of heat applied in the form of
cooking. The small amount of sugar and
salt used in canning fruit and vegetables
does not act as a preservative. It is for
flavor. Miss Albertson, County Home
Demonstration Agent has in her office a
number of extension circulars on the
canning of fruits and vegetables by 4-H
recipes. These circulars are for distri
bution. If you wish one either phone her
or call at her office in the Post Office
A new circular, "A Study in Foods for
Home Demonstration Clubs" has just
been prepared by Mrs. Cornelia Morris,
"Our" District Agent. A number of
these circulars are in the office of your
Home Demonstration Agent. She will
be glad to give them out to any one in
terested in home making f0i values.
Some things to be observed when can
ning should here be noted: Be sure the
canner is partly filled with water when
the fire is built. Keeping the water at
a jumping boil and do not allow the fire
die down for an instant while cans are
in the canner. Keep cover on canner
every moment of the processing time.
Steam plays a large part in cooking the
contents of a can. The quality or grade
of the pack depends on the number of

Miss S. A. Perry
Y. M. C. A. BLDG,
In visiting the. poultry yards in the
county, one is struck with the growing
sentiment in favor of pure bred fowls.
It pays to raise the best, and we realize
this fact. A coop of pure bred chickens
brings a better, price than a coop, of
mixed chickens, while for hatching pur
poses, eggs from the pure bred flock
bring double and treble the price of eggs
from the mixed flock.
The second shipment of wool for the
farmers of Pasquotank County will be
made on the 16th day of August. Deli
ver your wool to the freight office. You
may sell according to grade or have it
manufactured into blankets. Remember
the date, Saturday morning August !16.
The Green Clover Worm has created
much excitement in its destructive man
euvers in Soy Bean fields during the past
ten days and the crop has been damaged
to a large degree. It has been found that
this brood has about completed its per
iod of destruction.
We continue to grow Irish Potatoes
under control methods used in preventing
destruction by -the insect known as Po
tato Bug. Therefore, study the outline
given by Prof. Sherman in preventing
this insect from destroying your most
profitable crop, and i$s value in the fu
ture should be qua! to that of the past.
The Fifth Annual Boy's Short Course
of North Carolina, will be held at 'A. &
E. College, West Raleigh, Aug. 20, 21
and 22. This gives every Club Boy an
opportunity of spending his vacation in
a most excellent manner. Fathers and
mothers should provide their boys with
this instructive trip to the state capital.
The cost includes only transportation
plus about $4.00 for meals. The County
Agent will accompany the boys.
The proper function of a government
is to make it easy for people to do
good and difficult for them to do evil.
