As Second Only To The President West Praises Democratic Record in His Taylors ville Speech. Democratic leaders from each of the counties comprising the Ninth congressional district were present for the Demoratic rally at Taylors ville Sept. 3rd, which incidentally, was the occasion lor the formal op ening of Congressman Robert L. Doughton’s campaign for re-elec tion. Measured by the many spon taneous and sincere tributes from his constituents, plus the praise given him by the main speaker of the day, it must haye been one big day for Farmer Bob. Certainly it was a big day for the militant De mocracy of the district he repre sents. The weather man, ill-humored, provided a lot of rain, but withal, the court house was filled, packed and jammed for the afternon pro gram; a good dinner was served, with Mayor Carter as both actual and official host; some good speech es were heard; plans made for an aggressive campaign, and last but not least the big district rally went on record—unanimously—endors ing the continuance of the absentee ballot as a part of our election law in North Carolina. State Chairman Winborne presi ded over the morning session and in opening the meeting, ' urged the fullest co-operation of the leaders and workers to help him hang up a big Democratic victory in Novem ber. He said it had been a pleasing privilege for him to work with Congressman Doughton in the Democratic cause, and that this district should give Mr. Doughton and the entire democratic ticket a majority in excess of the twenty one thousand majority given the Congressman in 1932. He urged the county leaders and tne precinct workers to know their own picture and strength, not forgetting to ov erlook that of their opponents. In reviewing the set-up for this district, he recognized the person nel of this organization for brief reports, and charged them to get their fighting clothes on. He dwelt at length with the county boards of election, stating that he wanted the workers in North Carolina to understand that he doesn’t want any crooked work, no short cuts at the ballot boxes; that he wants to win by work and organization in ' presenting the issues to the people and then let them decide of their, own free will. He urged the, members of the election boards, and, the workers, to study the election1 laws, and see thaL mey are carried out to the letter. Mrs. J. B. Spilman, State vice chairman, was reeognfzed, and spoke briefly. Mrs. Spilman was speaking mostly to men, but the women in her audience were urged to organize an\l make it their goal; to cast fifty per cent of the vote at the November election. This can be done she says by personal visits, personal interest and intelli gent consideration of the issues. And she would have them begin at home, seeing to it that rheir own household is in good Democratic order. In recognizing leaders from the , various counties, Chairman Win Knrnp Yipa r A Pnrmir^Hrino’ acciiMnrpc . that all is well for the ticket from j top to bottom. He also heard some asides that seemed to reflect the : sentiment of the entire group on < important issues. For instance there ] was frequent reference to the ab- ] sentee ballot, and in each case the ( speaker expressed himself in favor ( of its retention. < The afternoon session was fea- ; tured by brief talks by Hugh G. j Mitchell, Mayor Carter, W. P. Hor- j i ton, nominee for lieutenant gover-l nor, Charlie Price, of. Salisbury, Ed. s Butler, president of the Young j Democrats club, Marcus Irvin, and s the inimitable Walter Pete Murphy, < of Salisbury. i Then Congressman Robert L. a Doughton was introduced by Char- t lie Price. Mr. Doughton stated that c if was nnf his inf pnfinn fn mahp an r address but to introduce a man who s would. He expressed appreciation - for interest evidenced by the pre- c sence of so many loyal Democrats t who braved the rain to come to his little party; he was grateful for the f support and the many expressions o of approval given at this meeting s and at other times, and assured his o audience that his highest aim in life, a private or official, will be to de- E serve the confidence placed in him. d He said he- had no doubt about the I The WEEKS NEWS CIMKENT EVENTS PHOTOGRAPHED FOR The Carolina Watchman — _•_. _ _____ - SHOOT BEAR IN N .

Mary, on trial on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon, an ice pick, denied the charge, saying "I love everybody. I don’t never fight-” She said 18 of her children are now living. There are two sets of twins and one set of triplets, she said. She declined to prosecute her husband, though at the time the ice pick was found hidden in her bosom she was being treated at a local hospital for a blow on the head he allegedly gave her. She | said her husband was kind to her, "’cept when the moon changes, or he gets drunk, he hits me.” Judge Lennon first assessed her the costs, but on the plea of her attorney, reserved decision . Farm Questions Answered At STATE COLLEGE Question: What can I do to my tobacco field to prevent a recur rence of tobacco mosaic next year? Answer: If the infestation was heavy, tobacco should be left off the field next year. If this rota tion cannot be followed the next best thing is to cut up the land and plants with a disk. Fall disking up roots and cuts up the plants so that they undergo considerable de cay during the winter and many of j the disease spores are killed. TheJ plants should never T>e left standing! over winter as many of them will reach spring in a semi-living condi tion and with an abundance of ac tive virus in their roots and this will cause a heavy spread after the plants are set in the field. Question: How should soil be treated to kill eggs of worms that infest poultry. -.rjiLmi-r' Answer: There is no treatment of the soil that is practical and that would guarantee the destruction of form eggs. The most effective measure lies in rigid sanitation. The house should have clean litter and the dropping boards should be so wired that the birds do not have access to the droppings. When the letter is removed it should be burn ed or carried far enough away from the poultry housse that the birds cannot reach it. It is also a good practice to plow up the land for 75 feet about the house each year and seed it down to some good grazing crop. Question: How much alfalfa| should be seeded to the acre to get a good stand? Answer: At least 25 pounds and I preferably 30 pounds of seed should be planted for best results. A good stand is worth far mere than the, cost of 5 or 10 pounds of seed and a thick stand also prevents weeds and grass from getting a start.! Where the seed are broadcast more seed will be needed- An alfalfa and clover drill wth the discs 4 inches apart is the best type of seeder for alfalfa, but a small grain drill hav ing a clover and grass seeder at tachment may also be used with gocd results. The discs on the grain drill, however, are usually 8 inches apart and, when, this machine is used, one-half of the seed should be drillel in one direction and the re mainder across in the other direc tion.

THE FAMILY DOCTOR JOHN JOSEPH GAINES, MD HOW THE HEART IS OVER LOADED We are still confronted with statements that heart diseases art >n the increase. Look over th< column in the big city papers anc note the causes of death—the lisi if fatilities, I mean. There were ter deaths recorded in my neighbo: metropolis yesterday, most of then were in the early fifties; "heart dis ease” too most of them. You are positively guilty of ev ery crime against your heart, ignor antly, it may be, but with result just the same; ignorance of the lat does not excuse the violator—h must pay the penalty in full. Two chief causes are notable it affections of the heart—infection and overloading. A neglectei throat is almost sure to send ; swarm of bacteria to tlie heart mus cle. Attend to your throat righ now, if it is affected. Influenza rheumatism, tonsilitis—all of then i 1 ■ I menace ?he heart, no matter how j mild they may appear; get your ; physician’s advice frequently. Overloading the heart is , inex j cusable on your part. How do you .do it? First, by overloading and un necessary stimulation. The heart | keeps all fluid elements in the body in motion; if you overeat, excess 1 fluid and juices are absorbed for ■ the heart to keep circulating through the channels provided. ' When you are short of breath aft " er eating, you are crowding your s heart. It may be gases in the stom ' ache, from indigestion that oppress * the heart—a warning you must heed if you value life.
