Houghton grazes one of the finest herds of beef cattle in North Carolina. The place is Laurel Springs the country Home of the congressman. Back to that scene to which the harried Man goes now As often As official duties will permit or. Houghton probably expects to retire when he quits Congress. There he will rest and Faith he will need rest after these years of chieftain ship in the matter of providing the a ways and Means of the republics most get in Sive government. Despite his year there is Little reason to believe or. Houghton a rest at Laurel Springs will be Brief. He is Likely to live to an extreme old age. His brother a a governor Houghton is considerably older than he and still going Strong. Their Mother died not Long ago about 95 years old we believe. The family is Long lived. This canny hard working North carolinian has distinguished himself in Congress. No Man there worked harder. Or. Houghton consistently beats other members to his office daily by hours. He will have his Days correspondence done before his Fellows have breakfast on an average. He never relaxes in his Job. Probably to the end he will be intense in All he does and Here is wishing him real Joy in that quiet and Beautiful Countryside to which he plans to go and Many years there. The mouse trap Ani the inventor Ralph Waldo Emerson is credited with the following bit of Wisdom Quot i Trust a Good Deal to common Fame As we All must. If a Man has Good Corn or Wood or boards or pigs to soil or can make better chairs or knives crucibles or Church organs than anybody else you will find a Broad hard beaten Road to his House though it be in the the West publishing company St. Paul Minnesota in an advertisement of the National reporting system adapted the Emerson passage to read a if you write a better Book or preach a better Sermon or build a better Mousetrap than your neighbor the world will make a beaten path to your j. Robert fish Massachusetts inventor is authority for the assertion that the fellow who builds a better Mousetrap can no longer expect the world to beat a path to his door. Or. Fish has a reason for that statement and since a few High Point men have invented. And secured patents for certain mechanical devices to ease the lot of burdened humanity they have a right to know what or. Fish is doing to protect his rights As an inventor. The following editorial from the Hickory record should prove to be both informative and helpful j. Robert fish has organized a new method for Safe guarding persons of creative Genius. It is known As the research and engineering company the principal purpose of which is to produce perfect and Market inventions which fish and his associates Are working on. Thus he Hopes to thwart anyone from getting the jump on his patents and stealing the Market before he can get himself organized to reap the rewards which should be rightfully his. The reason the Massachusetts Man has gone to such great pains in providing what he Hopes will be a Safe method for perfecting potential patents is that he thinks he is about ready to place on the Market a new device which will not Only make himself famous. But also Rich. The record agrees if fish actually has invented a Carburettor which will As he claims give at least fifty percent More mileage on gasoline consumption he is entitled to All the Protection and safeguards that society can give hostess looks after the Comfort of the passenger from the time he gets on at thirty ninth Street until he reaches the end of his Long and tiring journey at Thrity Tho id or vice versa. But Birmingham is but postponing the inevitable. The trolley is going. The Only Way to meet Progress is with Progress not by giving a dying business a Little with Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people w Underw Hatt Hose id fogies him. It is Gratifying to know that inventors Are again turning their attention to devices for giving motorists More Milos to the gallon. A few years ago automobile builders vied with each other in developing motors that were economical in their gasoline consumption. For the past few years however the Speed Complex has so mesmerized the Public that people generally have temporarily forgotten that for the vast majority the first concern should he How far will it run on a gallon of gasoline. A gift Book to you keep a scrap Book have you secreted somewhere in your personal quarters a collection of clippings which includes bits of poetry and prose which have lifted your spirits when they needed lifting and have challenged you into new hoi get and new Faith when that kind of gentle prodding helped Well most folks do keep a scrap Book or have stored away these emanations from the personalities of others. It is Fine to be Able to write a poem or a heart lifting bit of prose but a a fellow traveler a a Man who can appreciate it is blessed As Well. We have in today s mail copy of a neatly bound Book called a other Peoples Flowers a compiled and published by c. C. Cranford Well known business Leader and citizen of Asheboro. The Book is what its name presents it to be a collection of sentiments expressed by others. The authors word of explanation and dedication is his Sale contribution but he has opened his personal scrap Book to share his treasures of mood and mind with his friends. The Hook is not for Sale hut for limited distribution As the Gilt what name the Greensboro record is authority for the statement that it is Correct to designate an inhabitant of the Gate City As a the Fayetteville observer wants to know if it would be All right to speak of a resident of Hillsboro As a Dillsburg her a resident of Pittsboro a Pitt Burgher a resident of Carrboro a car Burgher or a resident of Roseboro a Rose Burgher. The observer is rather intrigued by those sonorous names wilsonian Kinston ians lumber ionians and Wilmington Najj. Pursuing the resident business a Little further it says however when the a a Ian follows a City whose name ends in a evil let like our own the result is somewhat unfortunate and misleadingly suggestive such As Fayette villian Ash evil Lian White villian Autry villian. By their names be shall know them we Hope so do we. In the meantime we would like for the journalistic lexicographers to inform us what name is right for a resident of High Point High Pointer or High Point Ian in vernacular such a resident is often called a High Pinter. In the news is the old fashioned trolley car of Birmingham ala., singing a sort of Swan song. The Winston Salem journal says a taking a Leaf from aviation a passenger service the Birmingham electric company is trying to inject new Appeal in its electric lines by putting hostesses on All cars and serving Coffee to the passengers. The at 314 South Alexandria Avenue los Angeles. Calif., lives a woman who. Four years ago found she had to earn some Money. But she had no Way of earning it. She had been a housewife for seventeen years and knew nothing about business had never had even a Days experience. In addition she had a son who must be educated. Here show Dorette Saltzman went about it she tried to get a Job. But when they found she was inexperienced. Well that was the end of that. She had to make her own clothes As she could not afford ready made clothing. And. She had to fit herself and there she was trying to fit clothes on herself. One Day As she was doing this an idea popped into her head. If she had trouble fitting herself there must be thousands of women having the same difficult y. She would try to work out a Way to overcome this. So she started out to make some sort of dress form that could be fitted to a woman and from which she could fit herself and do her own sew ing she brought in her friends and made them stand patiently while she worked Over her clothes form. It seemed impossible but she kept trying and would t give up. The idea was sound she must find a Way. And at last she did find it. She got a department store in los Angeles to offer it for Sale it was a Success almost from the Start. Women began to write in to ask if she could Supply them with materials so they could make their own dress forms. Dorette Saltzman thought about it. And finally worked out a kit which could be sold for that purpose. She wanted to Appeal to As Many women As possible and put a Price of $1.05 on it. The order came in first from los Angeles and near los Angeles then stores far away began ordering and now she has sold them to Liberty House in Honolulu Meyer Emporium in Australia. Hudson Bay stores in British Columbia. At first she handled All the work from her Bungalow but orders came in so fast she could not make the dress forms at Home so she rented a factory at 3706 West third Street los Angeles where her dress forms Are now let eing manufactured. She told me. When i saw her in los Angeles a few weeks ago that she had filled 70.000 orders. And she has accomplished All this in four years. This should serve As an inspiration to other women who suddenly find they must support themselves. Mrs. Salzman took one of the oldest problems in the world a a woman trying to fit clothes on herself a gave the idea a new twist and is now making a comfortable living from it. And what is All the More remarkable she has done it All alone. No one to finance her. Or help her in any Way.

The Enterprise men have experienced living under governments administered by men. Because they have become so accustomed to the results of maladministration As evidenced in poverty economic distress and strife it is almost impossible for them to visualize the blessings of a society where such troubles Are nonexistent. Though oppressed by economic troubles disheartened and discouraged. There is real Hope for there is a source of knowledge that sets Forth when where and How we Are to obtain Prosperity peace and happiness. These blessings Are coming when the present order which is now in the process of disintegration passes away. The coming new order will not be established by movements inaugurated by men nor will it come into being through Man made programs but it will be brought about by the establishment of the kingdom of god and his righteousness upon Earth when Jesus Chrisi shall take Over the throne of his father David and reign Over the House of Jacob forever and of that kingdom it is said there shall be no end. It is Only natural that men should desire to know How the kingdom will operate and what it will be like. For this reason the Bible depicts certain functions of the kingdom from which can be deduced the blessings that will come to Mankind when it is in full operation.

A a Here the debt limit headache you could really scare yourself by figuring what might happen if this Congress should go Over the budget enough to Send the total deficit above the $45,000,000,000 debt limit without at the same time voting to raise that limit. Treasury then would be in the Jagt Ilion of being obliged to pay the Bills but unable to borrow a dime anywhere. Something less than two billion is available in the stabilization funds of course but Treasury lawyers say that be tapped without a special act of Congress rather More than two billion could be taken out of the lending agencies but they Dall have to shut up Shoji. Which would be rather bumpy. Some $900,000,000 in Silver certificates could be issued. And the Treasury Dot have the authority to Issue three billions in unsecured greenbacks.
