Offices in the court house were closed and the same rule was observed at the city hall. The post office observed Sunday hours, the bank closed for the day, as did most of the business places. A large number of local sportsmen took advantage of the holiday to go hunting. From all reports there were ample turkeys to meet all local requirements. In addition to supplying all demands in the county, it is said that Brunswick county farmers had several hundred turkeys to sell at outside points, and that they have plenty more coming 011 for Christmas.

They have been arriving daily and one and all of the crews assert that the shrimp found and lost at Morehead City arc due to show up at Southport. In fact, they claim that the advance guard of the upstate shrimp was rolling over the trawling grounds here Monday. They frankly expect to make good catches this week.

There isn't any vast amount of money realized from the fur business in Brunswick because down here, where the winters are comparatively mild and pleasant, the furs on the animals 'aren't" as heavy and as good as they are further North. In this section, there are two kinds of squirrels?the gray squirrel and the fox squirrel. Of course that's not mentioning the flying squirrel such as can be found in abundance in this area. When it comes to foxes, there are gray and red foxes roaming the jungles of this county. Bears, represent the county's most ferocious animal though hardly any more ferocious than a buck deer if you get one cornered. The specie of bear found in this county is what is Holiness Minis In WVcxr>\r ' in v v * v/vn i ?? - H5 "SAPONA SANDSPUR" RATES FOUR STARS It will be interesting to the readers of the "Sapona Sandspur", Camp newspaper of Co. 427, CCC, South port, which is published monthly, that this publication received a four star ratine which is the highest honor a CCC paper can receive. "Happy Days", the official national weekly newspaper for the Civilian Conservation Crops, which is published In Washington, D. C., carried an article about the "Sapona Sandspur" and at the same time gave it a four star rating. This paper will be published monthly by the journalism class of Camp Sapona, and will be off the press the second Friday of each month.

"What struck me most," said he, "was that during the whole runaround I only saw one place in Brunswick where a forest fire had broken out at any time during the past several months. This was at a place near Wilmington, and so far as we could see from the road, it did no damage." At any time during the past few years it would have been a difficult matter to drive for even a short distance anywhere in Brunswick, without actually seeing disastrous fires burning through woodlands. And, everywhere there was the terrible marking of conflagrations during previous weeks or months.
