Coldest in Years.

night ,which places the North Caro

The buds were even further develop

CHICKENS TO SUIT THE MARKET
• Vass Pilot. *
Good stock counts just as much in
poultry as in anything else, especial
ly in this market. The farmer who
[ has a bunch of chickens will find them
. more profitable if they are the kind
t that satisfy the market demand. It
f may be assumed that any chicken is
r a satisfactory chicken when it is to
. be sold, but that is not the case. A
5 market chicken should be of the big
. variety, a Wyandotte, Plymouth Rock
% or Rhode Island Red. These if young
• and of good size, bring the best prices
• and sell readily. The lighter types sell
| only because the man who wants a
» chicken cannot find a better one, and
l they bring whatever price a poor ar
ticle can beg out of the buyer.
A good chicken costs no more to
- make than an inferior one, but it
; sells for more, and it sells when the
f inferior one is passed by. That is
- the reason why it is foolish to keep
- the scrub stock around the poultry
yard, and why the good stock is worth
while. Moore county is an excellent
market for chickens and will be get
. ting better every season, but it is a
- good market for good chickens, and
, will never be a good market for any
other kind, for the folks who want
; good ones will‘not have the other
kind at; any price. Poultry ought to
r be as prominent an industry in the
county as peaches or cotton or tobac
■ co, but it is only good peaches or good
? tobacco or good cotton that bring the
best prices, and really pay. That is
; a fact for farmers to bear in mind.
Raise good chickens, and lots of them.

I It has been reported that during the warm, sun
shiny days in January, when winter had cast off
, all appearances of her gloomy days, and took on the
mantle of Spring, that somewhere in Chatham coun
ty, (but owing l to the secrecy pf the meeting, we
hays been unable to locate the exact spot) the old
l moss-back, gimlet-headed, cross-eyed, migratory
j Roll Weevils from Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas,
| Georgia and South Carolina, called a Convention,
I right here in our own neighborhood unbeknowing
| to the citizenship of Chatham County. And after
the general routine of business was attended to, and
| the committee on Rules and Procedure
• j ready to report an old, long-billed, shiny-eyeu
j hump-backed, cotton-sucker 801 l Weevil from near
1 the South Carolina line, made the following speech,
| which was heartily cheered by all the members of
I* the convention.
He began by saying: “Brethren, I am older than
the most of you; I have cradled all the way from
Mexico to North Carolina, I have seen both adver
sity, and prosperity, but I am happy to say that at
the present time, however, our tribe is fast multi
plying and replenishing the earth, but lest you for
get, I want to call your attention to one thing, and
that is the strawberry plant. You know, brethren,
it does not have anything in it that we can eat. The
acid in the fruit is almost instant death to us, the
nectar and pollen in the bloom is detrimental to our
systems, and since the South is fast becoming a
■ manufacturing center and nearly sixty per cent of
I the population live in towns and cities, and the price
of strawberries is soaring to the skies, and since
strawberries produce such a tremendous yield per
acre, in many cases clearing from one to two thou
sand dollars, there is a danger of the farmer cutting
out planting cotton and, brethren, you know what
this means—it is death to you, and to me, your old
gray-backed father. Therefore, let me suggest that
we start -some kind of a slanderous and injurious re
port against one of our worst enemies, namely—the
Globe Plant Company, of Liberty, North Carolina,
who is at present doing us more harm than any one
we know, by telling the people there is five times
as much money in strawberries as there is in cot
ton, and also by telling them that strawberries are
much more easily grown, and that there is a stead
ily increasing demand for them even here in our
section on account of the good roads, where they can
reach Raleigh, Durham, Mebane, Graham, Burling
ton, Greensboro, Winston, High Point and Asheboro,
besides all the small towns.
■ “Brethren, I tell you, the Globe Plant Company
I must be put out of business, as they are dangerous
| to our cause. Our lives are in danger and we must
act quickly. If the Globe Plant Company ever gets
that information into the hands of the people, with
f their good, pure bred plants, we are gone.”
I “Say, you young gimlet-head over there in the
| comer, you need not be grinning; I know what I
8 am talking about. My head is gray, my back is
j crusty, I have been here, I have seen this crop ro
j tation. It makes times mighty hard for us. Yes, I
have seen your brothers and sisters die by the thou
sands! So the thing to do is to “Wake up!”
At this point the committee on resolutions entered.
I The old brother was forced to close his speech, and
j give way to new business. After a little flapping
J of wings and shifting of bills the chairman of the
committee raised up on his hind legs, • and said,
! “Brethren, after taking into consideration all our
j interests, we have prepared the following resolution:
I Be it resolved by all the boll weevils, wherever
I they may be, even unto the ends of the earth, that
j from this day forth, we are the sworn enemies of

Be it further resolved, that since this is the first
