The Journal welcomed the women as voters and we welcome them to full Hedged rights in all pasty activ ities. They come by right, as one of the women speakers at the convention said, and not as those who are re ceiving a gift. NOT A CHANCE; NEVER HAS HAD "Standing in his defeneelessness against the organization of the buy ers and manufacturers, operated by the test brains that can be hired, the individual farmer has no chance and he never has had a chance." declared Judge Bingham in his fptech in the Wake count courthouse a few nights ago. The speaker had reviewed the situ ation, showed how manufacturers and buyers wished to buy as cheap as they could and sell as high, and stat ed that they were not to be blamed. This is the game as it is played and must be played. But as long as this lasts, he said, the individual farmer would have to go again, c? he always had gone, throw down his tubaco on a warehouse floor, and take what was offered him. Only he himself can bring about a change and the only way to do it is by co-operative mar keting. In January 1920 the Furley tobr.c co growers of Ken.ucky sold their tobacco for forty-eight cents a pound and that was the most money they had ever had. They planted the next cvop. In January 1'j21, when the time came to sell, they were obl'ged to put the crop on the warehouse fio3rs and take what va offered. Speculators bought it for less than the warehouse charges for selling it end many a farmer hud to let his crop go and still be in d.-bt for its sal.1. The whole crt.p brought not jnore than an average of ei. .-:i t thir.een cents, yet in six months the speculators sold it fr sixteen cents. That could not have happened under co-operative marketing, f r the crop would not have been put upon the market at that time. The farmer would have held it and g: the bene fit of the rise. The damnation of uncertainty thnt the farmer has always faced was ciwelt upon by Judge Bingham. Nev er does the farmer know when he plants his crop what he is to get for jt and he cannot plan ahead like oth er men. This uncertainty is ruinous to any business. In Denmark, where all farm products are sold co-operatively, the farmer knows when he plants his crop what he is to get for it. His system of selling is recog nized in London where his products re sold 83 being as sound as the Bank of England. Cotton, tobacco and wheat are the only three farm products that are imperishable and that have a demand in every civilized country in the world. The California fruit grow, era, having only perishable products and no wide or universal r.iaikets, have (rrown prosperous and have ev erything they need by co-operative marketing. Yet tobacco and cotton growers of the south, with a world monopoly, are going to the wall all the time. Wilh thee tv.-3 imperish able crops and with a world wide de mand, the succes 'of co-opera'.ive market'ng is assured ii '.hj farmers' will net together. Co-operative marketing is of world wide economic significance. Will the fsrr..e-s embrace their last opportun ity for independence or will they hes itate and lis' en io the argument of the timid ones who say it can't be done? will not make enough to retire on, or net enough to "keep up with the process:on,' or' not enough to build the most palatial home in town. There is, too, a widespread idea that, without money accumulated, any man is labeled a failure. Money has be come the chief measure in all walks of life. But money is the most timid thing in the world. It ventures noth ing. It conies readily into the life of the community only when pros perity rides high. Above all, it com municates its peculiarities to those who have it always in mind. You can't worship . money and develop character. You are most forceful when you play the gamefi(r love of the game. You a.e a positive man when, in your eyes, well won victory, not victory' reward, is the main thing." The. Citizen has described a condi tion but it has not diagnosed the cause of that condition. It ia not the changed attitude towards money that has brought about the change in .social and political life which the Citizen describes. The new attitude towards money itself is but one of these new conditions, not the cause of them. The causes lie deeper than that. Simply stated, the base of American life has changed from the intensely individualistic to the social, and the cause of this goes way back to the most fundamental and all em biacing fact that we know, r.amely, that modern industry is based upon the machine and not upon the hu man hand as in past a-;es. The old time individualism held out longer in the mountains because the machine was slower in reaching so far. These are falling now to the inevitable pro cesses ef the a;;e. The Time give good advice in its last paragraph, tlflit doirg a thing well is what affords satisfaction rath er than the results gaiii'.'d. There are signs that wo sre learn'::;; some thing of this. This is one paint of view that .certain classes of the Eng l.st people have never lost ;:nl it is v hat has made them in many re spects the Lest fighters, the best vic tors and th best losers the world ha3 ssen. May Americans Larn more of it. FORCE AND FORCE An old citizen of Buncombe county died and at his funeral a friend aros and remarked: "Our departed friend nas never a negative man. He was always, in all circumstances, a posi tive man. You always knew where lie stood on everything." From the manner in which this tribute was paid and the way it was received, ev erybody knew thaj, in the death of that man, the life of the conimurity bad lost a great force.

Ten Nights in a Bar Room The announcement by the Strand Theatre that they have secured a showing of a big special, "Ten Nights in a Barroom" for Thursday and Fri day will prove of interest to motion picture fans and to all lovers of the theatre, lhis famous old Play na? been a staire favorite for over fifty years and in book form is said to be second in point of circulation only to the Bible. The screen version was made by L. Case Russell, who has five hundred produced pictures to her credit, and she has followed the story faithfully but has taken full advantage of the great opportunities offered by the screen, with the re sult that the film version shows much that the stage production was forced to omit. The picture was directed by Oscar Apfel and produced by Blazed Tiail Productions, Inc., in the heart of the Adirondack?. The star is John Lowell, who supported by Baby Ivy Ward, who plays the part of his daughter, Little Mary Morgan. An .'xcellent supporting cast aids in niak- wi the picture a great acting classicJ :md many special features are prom- s.'d. A very nne musical setting nas oeen provided by the Arrow Film Corporation, who are distributing the nioduction. A big surprise is prom :sed th? movie fans in connection at the Strand Theatre Thursday and Friday. "Ten Nights in a Barroom" is known to almost every man, woman and child in this country and the pict ure will be seen with great interest for the story is one which should lend itself to the screen far better than .he average.

C, who has recently been ?ent a star club pin from the United States Department of Agriculture. iay Belle's club membership beftan in 1912 when she joined a 4H canning lub with her sister Margaret, and began raising tomatoes to can. For 5 years the girls worked their lats side by side. During the past ,'ew years May Belle has been a local lub leader, and her success has in spired newer members. In 1913, May !el!e and her sister won the State .ze, a trip to Washington, for to mato work. They made a nt return f $212.27 on their joint plat that jar, after all expenses were paid, f $106.14 each. In the files of the 'cpartment of Agriculture one of lay Belle's records ind.cates the rea ion for her success as follows: "We find that the fancy grocery stores are the best places to ge't top-)f-the-market prices for our toma :oes, and we never peddle them out o houses as -ome people do. We "de as to size and quality and ack in boxes and get good prices 'or each size. The merchant always jnowa he will find the fruit the same ize throughout the pack." This little girl, nearly 10 years ago, was instinctively practicing what ii now advocated as a sound principle of preparing goods for the narket. From tomatoes May B.lle wont to rrow'ng lettuce too; then a more va-L-d assortment of vegetables each ason. She also canned and pre ened some of the truit on her fa hei's farm end sold it. May Belle arned over $500 while in active club work, in addition to winn'ng a num ber of prizes and the Washington trip.

Nash For Solicitor On Saturday, the 3rd dav of June, 1922. the voters of the Thirteenth Ju dicial District of North Carolina will nominate a candidate for Solicitor. I have carefully looked into the record and qualifications of W. M. Nash of Hamlet, and do not believe that tne District will make any mistake in nominating him. His life and char acter are unimpeachable. In the few months that he has held the office, he has demonstrated his ability. He is .'air and courteous' to witnesses and iurors and believe in conducting the courts with as little expense and time to the tax payers as possible. I, .herefore, most heartily indorse his candidacy and believe that the people II make no mistake in nominating him. R. A. MORROW. Goodbye Oats, If It Rains Much More VSaxhaw, April 24. The closing ex ercises of the Reboboth school took place Thursday and Friday nights of Inst week. The usual program was carried out by the pupils, and all ac quitted themselves creditably, both to the student body and to the teachers. The school has enjoyed a very suc cessful session under the principal- ship of Prof. B. F. Howie of Minsral Springs, and Miss Bertha Keep, pri ma rv teacher, of Gastonin. IUhoboth hopes to add a ' third tecchcr to its force for the 1922-23 es8io.i, having already provided in its new modern building lor a three- teacher school, and having also shown the necessary . average attendance during this outgoing s-.ss'on to en litle it to this degree of promotion. Mr. W. G. Helms planted cotton seed on Saturday, April 15th, and it immediately turned cold and went to raining again. Those of ui who are not vet ready to plant think that Mr. Helms should have waited a few days, or at least should have notified las of his intentions before he proceeded so far. We heard a man say yesterday that Twelve Mile creek, just above Osceo la, had been all over the bottoms nine times already this year, and in add! tion had had its banks full three other times. He says if it gets out 3nre more right away it will be good by'oots, so far as these bottoms ar concerned. . A bald-headed man with wire whis kers cen't see anything so very won derful anout nature.
