A Tale of the Waters Where Shad
"' First Run. ' , - . r '
The Edltorof Southern ProgreaaTells
of Four Hundred Thousand Herring
at One Haul of the Seine AGIImpno
at the Fisheries of North Carolina.
The water Indented state of North
Carolina has over 3,000 miles of riparian
rights and the fisheries are the most
Important of any in the United States,
if not In the world. Three hundred
thousand yards of seine are operated
In Albemarle sound alone. In addition
thousands of stake, drift and pound
nets. Some seines are nearly four miles
long. The Investments In the large
fisheries of the Albemarle section
sometimes reach $30,000 and the an
nual profits of many aggregate $50,000.
The statistical review of these fisheries
represents that they employ 6,000 peo
ple and 3,000 boats and that the pounds
of fish taken yearly exceeds 33,000,000.
North Carolina shad command the
highest prices because they begin to
run first and are early In the market.
Leading Industries of Dare, Chowan,
Tyrrell,. Hvde and Washington boun
ties are the taking of fish. The beds
of the five sounds are covered with
oysters. Formerly there were oper
ated along the shores of Tyrrell county
some of the largest seine fisheries In
the world, but they were destroyed In
the civil war and have never been re
fitted. Charles Ilallock, the founder of For
est and Stream, and an authority In
such matters, states that the great
variety of edible fresh water fish taken
In the North Carolina rivers Is some
thing remarkable. The drag nets of
the Trent river often capture 20 dif
ferent species. Included are large and
small mouthed black - bass, i striped
bass, blue and vellow catfish, yellow
perch! mudcats, white perch, croppies,
mullets, red horse.- sunflsh, white and
hickory shad, herring, drum, rock,
weakflHh, pickerel and garfish. Where
the streams meet the tide the anodro
mous species come up from the ocean
to soawn. The fresh water fish drop
down from the water sheds to disport
in the bracklBh Inflow. Herring choke
all the streams. Pickerel sport on the
very edge of the tide, and weakflsh
spawn in the deep fresh water pools In
the coves having obvious connection
with the ocean.
Of the sound fisheries there are mul
titudes, rne channels leading down
among them are -of the lovely soft
brown of the .juniper. The cypress
forests draw toward them like
masses of green. Touches of white In
them Indicate houses and catches of

Their deep waters cleared of cypress '
knees and stumns are of the nUaaanr i
colors that painters love. Thin touches I

On Dr. Capehart'a plantation, atAvoca,
nearly 200,000 herring were brought In

men several hours to get them ivshoru.
The pile, when In the dock, measured
80 feet long, 22 wide and two feet deep.

; to turn under." He expeads no un
i necessary force. He values labor too
' highly to waste it. Investments are not
made where there Is not a great deal
of certainty In the matter of a prom
ise to pay back.
Crops are In the manure, not In the
land. It Is waste, both of time and
muscle, to scatter the requirements of
a ten acre lot over one of 20 acres. The
farmer will win a wager who ventures
to get more profit out of one acre than
another would get out of five, the land
being of like quality and the quan
tity of fertilising material being the
same for both fields. (
Pigpens and barnyards are the manu
factories of a farm, and they are man
ufactories that always pay. There la
no possibility of a failure or of a go
ing behind. The secret of success In
farming lies In correspondence of the
acres with the manufactories. If the
correspondence be with ten acres, then
ten acres are enough; If with 20. 40, 80,
then 20, 40, 80 are to be worked with
The economies of a farm extend quite
as much to mind as to pocket. The
occupant need not worry himself about
a depression In railroad stocks or a de

him are means of support. What if the

One of the comforts of a farmer'!
life is that he has time to talk. If be-'
sides muscle the farmer has brain,
another comfort la the knowledge of
what his estate Is Inevitably to develop
Into. If a farmer wants to be presi
dent he can surely come to the office;
and to rule over forty or four hundred
acres occupied by. wheat, corn, potatoes
or beans is to be master where. com
pensations are many and cares fewest
' The farm, la a home not a place to
be lived at today and moved from to

and beautlfled-ahome where orchards

' Why do men prefer the privations
and battling and poverty of a city,
when on a farm there Is so much of
plenty and peace and wealth? The
Illiterate laborer selects the town be
cause of that sense which prompts the
knowing to raise his eye above the six
pence which conceals the dollar beyond.
"It Is easier," says the carter, "to load
a cart than to grub a clearing." And
so it is, only that bruvh land once made
clear stays cleared, while carts that are
laden empty as fast as they are laden.
The work with the cart waxes harder
with the age of the carter. The culti
vation of the land grows easier with
tho children of the farmer.
Money In bank is never half so prof
itable as manure In the Held. To skimp
the field for the bank Is to make a mis
take. What the intensive farmer needs
to do is to put back to his land as
freely as the land is found to give. To
give on a farm Is to get. Ten acres
well fed are worth a hundred starved.
This is the experience of everybody
that knows anything about the mat
ter. Living In the country is costless,
because with a little turning around a
man makes the rinds of his fruit worth
as much as the pulps that have been
eaten. To enjoy one's watermelons
and then to nlve to the pigs the rinds
is to put back more than has been
taken. To use the straw gathered st

value by turning into vinegar. Calves
fed from pickings that are without

Few authors, not even John Bur
roughs, like flowers better than does
Joel Chandler Harris, and he particu
larly dotes on roses. This taste has led
Mr. Harris to an extravagance In
roses which has now resulted in giving
him the finest private rose garden in
the South. Mr. Harris' house is in the
west end of Atlanta, Oa.. and he has a
climate which favors him so that he
can enjoy a prodigal bloom of his fa
vorite flower from May until the mid
dle of December. Almost as early as
the sun the author Is In his garden,
weeding and pruning his Innumerable
rose bushes,- every one of which he
knows and cares for himself. It is
this practice, his friends 'say, which
has given him the decided stoop which
he carries as he walks. "But what's
a stoop," he recently said to a friend,
"to the enjoyment of a rose garden?"
Society, business and diversions of any
kind have not the least charms for
Harris In comparison with his roses.
When his buds are not In bloom dur
ing ths year he amuses himself by
reading books about them and thn
best methods of rose culture. His only
regular work is his dally visit to his
editorial office, being on the staff of
the i Atlanta . Constitution. , But his
work is done at home. Joel Chandler
Harris may truly be said to take life
1 easy. He cares little for honors or at
tentions of any kind. So long as he Is
allowed to live In his family and among
his roses, doing now some particular
piece of literary work which strikes his
I fancy, he Is happy. It Is a quiet life
which the author of "Uncle Remus"
lives, but It Is a tranquil one. And
this sort of life Is one which a man Is
likely to enjoy long.
