I - The cotton crop in the State ha been less than that of 1911, the re cord cotton year all over the count ry, but at that it has not been alar mingly less. The number of bale. of cotton ginned to December 1, 19 11, was 913,000. This year thi number was 820,000. Increase: prices f r the staple have wiped ou the deficit, and it may be that .fin al figures will show that the receipt for farm products in the State hav been much larger than those of 191 1 inspite of crop shortages in several products. The corn crop was approximately 20 per cent short. A wet spring delayed planting in lowlands; a dry summer burned up the highland crops. The wheat crop was as good as that of the previous year, but the quality was " not so good. Though greater emphasis is being brought to bear week by week on intensive cultivation, the yield per acre is not as large as it was the year previous, farmers have shown a greater interest in the selection of seed than ever before. The number of hogs raised in the State was greater, but the number of cattle was less.' It is explained that the production of cattle is growing less because of frequent salves to butchers.

Figures in the educational de uctiaent of the State mlly bear out the increase in nthpr linpc The total school fund grew from nearly three and a half millions in 1911 to nearly four-and a half mil lions in 1312. And even at that :he average rural school term in North Carolina is only 97,63 days. in 1911 it was 94.3 days. A six months' term as a minimum is one of the recommendations of Superin- endent of Public Instruction Jo - ner to the governor, and to the coming sessio.i uf the legislature. Valuation of school property has increased. The 7,777 school houses at present are valued . approxi mately seven and a quarter millions while the 7,675 in 1911 were valued at six and a half millions. There are fewer school houses now th&n there were in 191 1, due to consoli dation. There was an increase in the amounts coming in Horn local tax ation of $168,UuO.

People of North Carolina are fortu nate in that it needs no statistical study to see that the State is pros pering.
