iursday at entered at 'the Post-Office as second class tnail matter S, W, Kenney, Owner, Ed. and Owner FIRM LIFE SCHOOL FOR The most important stlp ever made for Aulander a id. vicinity was accom ernoon when pUshed last Wednesday afi the , mass meeting assembled for the purpose of deciding on a school site, voted unanimously to adopt the Farm L'fe" plan in connection whh the Usual high school curriculum. The possibility of securing his agricultural department, and until a few hours previous to -the neeting, the public generally were not acquainted with the provisions of the State Department with reference ko establish ing such practical met hods- in our Schools. Through the work Of Prof. J. B. Thorne and Mr. W S. Dunning week to dis-. J. Y. Joy- who went o Raleigh last cuss the situation with Mr her, it was learned that such & move was possible for Aulander. With the assistance of Messrs. Cias. H. Jenkins, Prof. Herbert Ea ly, Hon. ,C. W. Mitchell and others, plans were made for establishing th is 'farm life school. In the mass njieeting when the proposition was put to the voters, a unanimous decision in favor of the new plan was made. Mr. Alderman of Raleigh in a short talk informed the convention of the purposes of such a school, howMt could be how it was to be suppor obtained and ed, and men- tioned the requirements to be met by the community desiring such a course The reauirements briefly were that riot less than ten acres of land shall be provided, that $2,500 per year shall be guaranteed for the support of the School, that a sufficient sum shall be expended for buildings a itl dormitory to properly care for ihe students. The latter requirement, a dormitory, was waived when the department was assured that adequate provision would be made to take care of students until a dormitory could be built some time in the future. Thej recent bond issue for the school provides $12,500 for buildings, and M'i .Aldermen Btated that the sum or $5,000 was available from the department at 4 per cent interest makiig a total of $17,500 for build-ngs ard site. Also the sum of $2,500 anrually will be provided by the State for the support of the institution. The old school site when sold should add something like $4,000 to the fund. The special school tax will amply make up whatever is lacking in the matter of funds. This new plan is known as the "Guilford County Plan" and is somewhat different from the regular Farm Life" plan, the latter counties desiring .such a applicable to .school, whilt: the former makts concessions in favor of communities intending to establish such schools. In brie this depart-education in ment will be a practical agriculture and domestic econon?y than which nothing would be more suitable or desirable for this section. We are an agricultura people, surrounded by some of the best land in the State, and the establishment of this school is a long st sp toward the development of this community in practical work and usefulness. The people of Aulander have never voted oft a more momentous c uestion and it is to the everlasting credit of our people that this propositiqu was unanimously supported. There are only a few schools of this kind in the State, and Aulander has reflected honor upon its citizens by having kept apace with the demands of modern education and having made such a step in the beginning of the new era, Others will follow in all sections, bat Aulander is proud of itself in be ing numbered among the pioneers in this move. The 'question of a location for the school was next taken up, anc inasmuch as the provisions called for a majority vote of the registered voters, the matter reverted back to the committee automatically. When tr e vote was "announcer1, the vote stood 55 for the T. J. White tract and 47 for the J. D. Rice tract, while a majority fill) bf the qualified voters is necessary for a decision. The committee will meet in the near future and 'decide on the site. .

V. Cobb, the present incumbent,, who has informed me that he, will not ask for renomination,. I have' decided to announce myself a candidate - for the office of County Treasurer, subject to the Democratic primaries to be held on Saturday, May 16th; 1914. ' If nominated and elected to said office I shall endeavorrat all times and under all circumstances, every day in the week, to serve the t-people of Bertie countj, with the same degree of promptness arid courtesy that has always characterized my conduct in per-senal business affairs. 1 As to my Democracy it is now and has always been that of the William Jennings Bryan and Woodrow Wilson kind. No better, no worse. As for my claims against the party I haven't any. It has always given me and my family fair returns in, good government for all the strenuous efforts, privations' and labor that I or any of them have ever put in it; notwithstanding my father was a life long Democrat, born and reared , in Bertie county, raised six Democratic sons, fought four years in the Confederate army in defense of it and other southern' counties and at no time did he, nor has any of his sons ever before, asked for an office at the hands of her people. The office'that I am now asking for, while very important in itself and to the people of the county, pays such little salary that it is impossible for one living out of Windsor to give dai'y office service such as I propose to give if elected. But due to my location I can afford to do so and if nominated and elected, and my services prove satisfactory, I will ask for it. but one more term As to my ability, experience and etc.. will say that I have served seven years as town commissioner of Windsor and six years as town treasurer, both without pay, and the latter without bond am now treasurer of the church in which I hold membership and have been actively engaged in the mercantile business for twenty years, therefore I earnestly ask you, each and every reader of this announcement for yoiir valuable support in this instance, thanking you in advance for same I am, Yours most sincerely, - C- A.
