CATTLE TO CO.
Nine Head Shorthorns
Bought at Cattle Sale
County Agent H. II. Ellis, on
Tuesday May Hth,?purcha-?d at the
registered Shorthorn cattle sale in
Clyde. Haywood County. ami
bi i ught hack to the county, nine
head of cattle for the farmers of'
this section. Included in the lot
were four yearling hulls, one 2
year old bull, 2 year old bull, two
1! year old heifers and a six year old
cow. Mr. Ellis has been working
with the farmers for sometime trying
to arouse interest in purebred
cattle and although he did not definitely
have thee cattle placed, yet
he haid faith enough in the farm-.
ers of the county to hoy them en !
his own account and take a chance
on disposing them to the farmers.
Since bringing them to the county,
Mr. Laws??n Lunsford, of Peachtrce
has bought thij two-year-old hull;
Mr. G. F. Hendrix. ot Peachtreo,
has bought one of the heifers, and
Mr. Julius McClure, of near Murphy.
has bought a bull and heifer.
Mr. El lie is wollinir thi'V*
animals at what thi-v cost at the
sale plus expenses in keeping them
until they are sold and, as they
were bought at low figures, this is
a good opportunity for several
communities to get good purebred
animals for breeding purposes.

The senior rla.-s play, rendered

night, was well received by a large
and appreciative audtance. There

hou??' was pleased with the performance.
Th,? play was one of O. B. Parker's
"best. As do all of Parker's
themes, money was pitted against
love and the higher valuQy of life
and the lntt< r won. Briefly, the
them*, was this: The Dann& homo
i? mortgaged because of the failure
of the Farmer's Co-operative Association
and the holder of the mortgage
is about to foreclose. Jane
Dana, the daughter, is sent to the
city to ohtain a loan from her rich
aunt, who., instead of lending her
the money, schemes to have her
marry a good-for-nothing, though
rich, acquaintance. Jane is about
to he forced into the marriage
against her will when Rodney Blake
an adopted son of a wealthy family,
intervenes, drawn, on his foster father.
pays the obligation, and sends
Jane hack home. This calls down
the wrath of a father on Rodney,
who is disowned, but later taken
back and the play ends just before
he and Jane marries.
"Each character seemed to be
especially suited for his* or her
part." was an oft-heard comment
after the play. Mary Ella Clegg, ns
Jane Dannn; Charles Clegg, as Mr.
P'ake; Miss Albright, as Mrs. Fordston;
