There is a unit of the Boone Traill
Memorial Association in Durham, i ,
composed of many of the most pro-j
minent citizens. J. H. Rich, director
of the Boone Trail association, was!
present at the Durham high school'
yesterday where he made a speech i
relating the history of the highway t
which reaches from the top of the }
Blue Ridge in the western part of the 1
elate, to the ocean. The trail contin- 1
ues through the central part of the t
state starting from the Blue Ridge
and extends to the sea at Norfolk, Va
It constitutes one of the most beau- i
tiful routes in the state and has been <
mapped by the American Automobile ?
a Association. It is one of the most r
important roads in the state. 5
In passing through the state, Daniel
Boone, the great pioneer and set- 1
tier, passed through what is now DurIhani.
soon after Fort Dobbs was built
reaching Tidewater from the forks I
of the Yadkin River, where he lived
for a year or more. Reference to this f
fact may be seen in Bruce's "History
of Daniel Boone and the Wil- i
derness trail,'* published b yMcMillan 1
in 1910. This old trail is aaid to have
passed near Hillshoro over the Eno 1
River. It is also noted >n Lawrence's
history, published in England in 17091 1
according to Mr. Rich. ?.

STONY FORK NEWS
Stony Fork Nov 26.?Although the
\cather was extremely cold and the
roads bad, a good crowd attended the
regular meeting of the B. Y. P. U.
Saturday night. The program was full
of inspiration. Several visitors were
present, among them being Mr. Carl
Welch of Yuma. Mrs. Ella Goulds
and four of her brothers. Mrs. Gould
will spend several weeks with her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Amos Hamby, and
has joined the B. Y. P. U. for the
length of her visit. New members are
welcomed gladly, and visitors are ur- j
god to come again.
Saturday afternoon Dec. 1. has j
been appointed by the men of the
church to meet and haul wood for the
church. Everyone who can is invited
to bring a team and tools to help in
this very necessary work. In a very
few hours wood enough to last the
church all winter can be cut and j
On next Sunday Dec. 2, there will I
be a community singing at Stony

made to have all of the old people
of the community present, and the
old favorites will be given a prominent
place on the program. Miss Ethel
Green, who was educated at the
school for the blind at Raleigh, has
been invited to sing a special selection
for the occasion. Everyone is

ent, bring all the old hymn books and
j help with the singing.
The new road from the postoffice
j to Mr. W. M. Shirley's farm is open
for travel, although not quite completed

around that particularly bad piece
of roi|d known as the Shirley hill,

people of that section of the Stony
Fork and of the Mount Paron and
Mount View sections.
