L - Yes, the Henderson county farm life school movement is still living. Make out your entry list and get ready to exhibit something at the fair. Yes, John, it's about time to take 'cm off. ; . j . B. V. D's. make a fellow shiver 'twixt sox and knees. Henderson county people should, not forget that they have an excellent op portunity' to make a fine showing oj our products of soil and intellect at .the Western Carolina Fair, which is conducted, for no man's private gain hut for the instruction, enjoyment and general improvement of the moun tain section. "What have you done or said toward influencing the county commissioners to re-employ our farm demonstrator? Mr. Farmer, it will be too late to wring you hands in despair after hi3 services have- been dispensed with Just because you would not urge his -re-appointment. . The converts'to the Democrat's ad- i .. . yertising tax plan continue to come into the fold. Just keep thinking of what kind a citizen a fellow would he who would not gladly give the 'one-thousandth part of his belong ings to advertise this glorious section to the uttermost parts of the world. We all live on the results of past ad vertising so why not advertise mora and live better and prosper greater? OUB EDUCATIONAL ADVANTAGES. The Democrat's news and advertia i.g columns this week show incontrw ertibly that Hendersonville is prouw of her educational advantages. .While there are a few who are possibly in clined to underestimate the benefits that will accrue to this community by v reason of the establishment of Fassi fern, Fleet school ancMhe Blue Ridge School for Boys, the more wide-a-wake element of our citizenship is able to vsee that these institutions . mark a " new era in our general progress. For the first time since Judson col ' lege passed into the realm of inactivi ty, Hendersonville people have the privilege of placing their children in splendid preparatory schools witnoat sending them away from home to les3 favored climatic sections where they would be subject to diseases noft gen erally prevalent in Hendersonvillej The schools will add to the busi- - ripss int.firpsts nf tho rvimmiinitv.fiiiiPii thousands of dollars will be spent an nually for food, clothing, supplies aid sundry other things. These schools will mean a judicious expenditure 1o r advertise themselves and the commun- ity's advantages in educational religi ous and secular publications In vari ous parts of the country.. Hendersonville has many reasons why phe should feel proud of the ed ucational tone given this cominuntty snd since Fassifern is still in ne,dcf iuianciai suppon, tnose in close .oucn with the building operations assure , the Democrat that co-operation In the way of subscriptions for stock in the institution which soon opens ith a : most encouraging outlook for the most successful year in its history, would be greatly appreciated. The undertaking needs to be encouraged and the responsibility of getting this institution located here in. the face of : flattering propositions from other cities should not be allowed to rest on . the shoulders of a few who have made V' sacrifices in time and money. ' BOYS IMPROVEMENT CLUB.' . The Rev. George F. Wright is to be commended for his 'efforts in organiz ing and conducting the Boys Improve .ment club. Who can tell hut what this will; be a case in which "giant oaka from little acorns grow"? ; While the club's first work will con sist chiefly of equipping a'- reading room and conducting a workshop, among the boys from ten to sixten years old,, the possibilities of exten sion are almost unlimited. It is here that the boys " can; profitably spend :trra inatAflri of loafing on. the streets. Who can tell but what this, will be a very helpful employment bu reau for the young men.' Their train ing here may determine a lifetime vo cation. ' . - ." : .. ,', The club may develop into a night school of incalculable value to both young and oM. Who knows but what' it will develop into a Hendersonville. Y. ll. C. A., a much needed religious institution? . - ' 5 As will be seen in our news columns, the Rev. Mr. Wright has had consider able experience along somewhat simi lar lines and this can be employed to great advantage in Hendersonville. Mr. Wright is not conducting this as a financial institution for personal gain, since the members will receive all the benefits at a sacrifice on the part of Mr. Wright, who should be given every cossible encouragement by the people of Hendersonville, for which the insti tution doubtless means much. Thft nnfifiihilities of the club are many and we hope to see Mr. Wright's ideals realized. , , OUB BO AD SIGN'S. mil . Tourists to Henderson county will doubtless welcome no innovation in our. good roads progress more than the presence of sign boards at cross and fork roads. At present a strang er has no means of telling where he is going except by inquiry at each fork of the road. Road Supervisor P. F. Patton in forms the Democrat that he has taken un the matter with signboard manu facturers and will have signs placed as early as possible. In view of the fact that many hun ters hate more powder and shot than brains and therefore shoot and destroy wooden- signs, Mr. Patton is consider? ing purchasing metallic ones guaran teed to be bullet .proof. " - Wpnderson' County v needed " these sign years ago' but even at this late date they vf'ilt mark another era in cur great good: roads progress anu wil lbe iilghly welcomed. BOOST MR. PERKINS. The Democrats, hearing Hea- derson county farmers boosting their farm demonstrator, Mr. Ernest Perkins. It is an s unfailing sign of agricultural progress, for when the farmery are once convinced that- hl labors are of inestimable value they will adopt more progressive methods. Boosting will also help Mr.Perkins by putting him in better working spirits, Wt even though he never received a verbal boost be should feel highly complimented over his record of ac complishments in Henderson county for it shows that many farmers are adopting the more practical methods advocated by him. One of the progressive farmers of the county was in the city recently looking for Mr. Perkins for some ad vice about his orchard He was right. Mr. Perkins is here to serve the farm ers and nothing pleases him more than to assist them in every way possible. Boost him and call oh him when hi3 services are needed and his life will be happier and a greater blessing to Henderson county. HENDERSON CO. DEMOCRACY. Henderson county7 democrats are urged not to forget the precinct meet lugs and county convention called for October 9 and 10.' The democrats should select clean, upright,' strong men of whom both democrats and re lOiblicans would feel proud. ; . .". , lw A discreditable ticke as some demo crats have had the audacity to sug gest would be a disgrace to the party and it had better name no ticket at all unless It can name one in which the people in general will take pride. . The republicans have made the mis take of not naming a county commis sioner from the city of Hendersonville. so the democrats should take advant age of this and select a man that would b capable of discharging the great. . resposibility incumbent upon him. . ' -: ' ; We need a commissioner from Hen dersonville who is in tune with pro press and development, . and perhaps the need is left to be .filled by the democrats. ' v If the democrats will unite upon a strong ticket and get to work, they will make the outcome interesting. COUNTY SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT The Henderson County Teachers as sociation is to be congratulated upon its progressive step in deciding to hold a Henderson county commence ment some time during the present school yearl v-.' ''V "r: The Democrat has strongly advo cated this measure from its incipiency, knowing full 'well that if adopted In' tho proper spirit it would be a great success and mark a new era in the ed. v rational progress of Henderson coun- The unanimity witn which the teach era took hold of this subject in their meeting Saturday speaks highly for their, progressive spirit, which will mean a great deal in the way .of ed ucational progress in Henderson county. ' " '. . "': V It now behooves the association or iti, officers to appoint a good working committee to outline a plan and name a date on which the greatest event in the history of our schools will be held, then the teachers will do the rest.

There is one thing we should like to urge very strongly in this issue, Mr. Farmer Boy, and that is that you stay on the farm where you can be your own boss, instead of. going off to the city to be somebody's clerk or hired man that-ls unless you have some special marked and definite talent fqr. some: particular work. It is true, of course, that the farmer doe3 not get all the. profit he ought to get nor all he is going to get-but it is also true that the working man m the country fares better than the work- I ine man in town. Read all you can. study all you can, and prepare yourself to be a good l awake, progressive farmer and ; you will, nine chances out of ten, fare better than if you should go to town. As we see it.tbe farmers s aay i w" ing. The thought of the world is turn ed as never before to building up the country. The government itself which vas once interested in protecting manu factures.developing manufactures, and building up towns is. beginning to see that the source of all prosperity is the farm. But the one best sign is u the farmers ' themselves are getting aroused and studying their privileges end rights. Already the awakening and organization of the farmers have resulted in untold good, and you ought to resolve now that there shall be a farmer's organization in your neigh borhood as long as you live. If you are over 16 years 'old, join the! Farm er's Union or whatever organization Is nearest you, and take an active part in it. Speak to your father about it. Another thing which insures better times for the Southern farmer is this: For a hundred years until very recent ly we have' had to compete with cheap land farmers in the west. That is to say, any farmer could go out west and stake out a "homestead," and sell his crops without allowance ' for land values because his land cost him noth ing, or practically nothing. But all that Is past! The cheap lands of the vest have gone, and now when the western farmer sells his crops he must add $5 to $10 per acre as an allowance for rent ror. for interest- on land val ues. And because of this fact crops simply can't be sold as cheaply as for merly. Then, too, city population have in creased faster than country popula tions the whole world over, and it is becoming 'more and more difficult for the city people to get enough meats and stuffs. There are several millions more1 people in the United States than there were five years ago, whilei there are several million "fewer meat ani mals. This is an indication that farm products . must go higher, especially live stock. -One of the greatest of the world's students of rural problems declared re cently that-ia the future labor on the farm is goingto be better paid than labor in vthe town's, and we ibelieve he is right. Stick to the farm. Progres sive Farmer. v ; . JL PROBLEM IN THIRDS.

Wilmington is pleased today with the presence of Governor Craig, th" honored Chief Executive of the. Stat ol North Carolina. To say that the people of Wilmington- heartily weJ come the Governor in their midst I sunerfluous. for he knows that no por tion of North Carolina can be more r joiced that the State's first citizep should come into their midst, annear- Ing In his' own individuality and repre senting the sovereignty of tne people who paced within his hands the great est trust they can bestow upon a fel low citizen. Governor Cr?Jg comes unto his awn when he comes among the people o the Cape Fear. When there was a bu bernatorlal candidate to be-chosen in 1912 the people hereabouts had long ago become a unit for his nomination Long before the time came to consider the nomination of the State's next Governor, Wilmington and all this por tion of the State was ready to rendei judgment made upon the irresistible logic of poetic Justice. . That s the word, because it was used throughout thef year 1911. and there was no other word passed along the line by Caps Fear Democrats. However, the Gov ernor knows all about it, but we only recall it to say that he is now in the midst of Craisr territory. "North Carolina was not mistaken li her unanimous choice for governor in 1912. In . Governor Craig tne State 'piaced in rthe executive chair a man imon whom "it ould rely for wisdom btjity and fidelity In the dischargeof ills duty, .weitner nave tne people naa .cause to reeret their choice, for the State and all its people have never had a governor so loyal to all their interests and so closely" in touch with the I people who laid a worthy honor upon- his . shoulders. - North Carolina's sovernor has a ner sonality all his own, as the people well know. He is a man of rooted earnest- ness, absolute sincerity and conscien tious convictions. He is a man who takes his stand and stands there, and p.vervhodv knows that his eovernor- snip nas oeen more oi a messing io the State than it has been an honor to him. North Carolina is proudly con scious of the fact that it has a Gov ernor in whom all the people have confidence and whose .lofty, character and dignified administfatidn has re-; fleeted honor upon the :Statev r .. The occasion which brings Governor Craig !to Wilmington is rLabor.Day." It wili be celebrated here today and the Governor is "tbe ; orator of the day." i Orator is right, for the State has a ;governor ...who is not only: a gift ed speaker but. a man . who.- makes speeches strong in every, particular, We -Tenture the - assertion? that he will do that this afternoon at.Wrights ville Beach, and. certainly . such, a speaker as the Governor can do jus tice to a day which all .America can celebrate. , Labor makes .an asset of the country's resourceaof wealth, and the whole country has a part in "La bor Day" the holiday of those , who build upon the foundation of all .this country's prosperity.; Wilmington Star WORLD'S GREATEST FINANCIER. The world's greatest financier is th North Carolina farmer's housewife Her daily investments exceed in shrewness the clever transactions . of Wall Street and no. business concern of corporation, however ably office'red. has ever been able to approach her in economy. She is the nation's ablesl trader and her transactions more near ly reflect the , progress- and prbsperit J of the country than the reports of our clearinghouses. . All ' legislation, financial or other wise, ought to be so plain that th .housewife can understand it. Our legr islators, state and .national "shoot su far over the head of the average citi zen that those who are unable to em ply an attorney and accept his state ments in. blind faith, must forever re main in Ignorance of ,our laws. Of course we have so. many laws that no 'human can expect to read them and survive the ordeal, but any person who feels an irresistible impulse, to legislate, should try his proposed law on his neighbor and get it down where the common people can understand it before attempting - to put it on the statute' books.
