Gause Landing Early Hist Although it has never received much notice of its historical antecedents, Gause Landing, on the coast some eight or ten miles below Shallotte, was memorable in past days. When Old Town on the Cape Fear River above Southport was just becoming a settlement, the forefathers of Charles I E. Gause of Southport and of John D. Bellamy of Wilmington left England. They first went to the Barbedoes and then came on to the Cape Fear coun- I try. Because of the prevalence of yellow fever at Old Town, brought there in ships from Nassau, the Gauses and Bellamys soon left Old Town and went down the coast some 40 miles to the place that became known as Gause Landing. There they settled and around them grew a thriving com' munity. Of the things that existed I during the days of this settle- | ment little now remains ex- I cept the same wonderful fish- j iog, oystering and fine hunting. | The one most enduring thing is est] A Gooa 4-PAGES TODAY | Of Murder | BpJpS^ ' it above, is Edward H.

I jj This vault is a counterpart of the famous "King" Roger w Moore vault at Orton. ei The diary of President George Washington shows that he vis- w ited Gause Landing and was a a guest of the great-great-great ^ grandfather of Chas. E. Gause of Southport. This pre-revolu- tl tionary war Gause is under- a stood to be sleeping with sev- a eral other bodies in the Gause C vault, or tomb, at the landing. w Some eight or ten other graves surround the tomb. As tombstones were then unknown E and as there are no rocks in a lower Brunswick, history says that a small cedar tree was fl planted as a marker at the 11 head of each grave. Some of a these trees still remain. "King" Roger Moore is cerdited with having settled at Orton, attracted by the natural I beauty. The same thing may U, be supposed to have inspired n the Gauges and Bellamys in the' S founding of Gause Landing. R I News paper Ii Southport, N.

The above is according to a survey made by the Civic Club if secretary, W. B. Keziah, for the i week in question. Shrimp, of course, constituted the greater - portion of the export poundage, i Next in order was fish, notr ably mulletts. The mulletts s were taken along the whole J coast of Brunswick, from Bald r Head island down to the South Carolina line at Calabash, v Great as this past weeks prot duction was, it is very doubt1 ful if it aproached the producy tion and exporting volumn of - several weeks last season or - any of the seasons previous. When the mulletts are really ,0T HED EVERY WEDNESDA Tobacco Marl With A vera* Being Paid King Mackerel Wreck Tackle It is bad enough to have the big one get away, but when r you run into a school of bi| ones and they not only escape, but carry along your expensive fishing tackle with them, then you have a just complaint. That's what happened to Captain II. T. Bowmer Sunday when he and a party of Kanapolis sportsmen ran into a school of king mackerel. They were successful in landing but two of the fish, each weighing between 15-pounds and 20-lbs. Several others were brought along side the boat in plain view, but broke away, carrying off practically all of Captain Bowmer's trolling lures. Diphtheria In County Causes Extreme Can Two Cases Were Reportei To County Health Nurs< During Month Septembe And Were Quarantined LAW THAT SCHOOL KIDS BE VACCINATEI Section Of Law Governini Children Of School Age Is Quoted In Article Below Two cases of diphtheria, one i Town Creek township, the othe in Waccamaw township, were r( ported during the month of Sepl ember to Mrs. Lou H. Smitl county health nurse. As a result Mrs. Smith is is suing a warning to parents t children between the ages of si months and six years to have th little fellows vaccinated. The General Assembly of 193 passed an act, Chapter 126, ri quiring the immunization of chi [ dren against diphtheria. Sectio 2 of that chapter states that "Tli parent or guardian of any chil in North Carolina between tli ages of twelve months and fi\ years who has not been previoui I ly immunized against diphtherii shall have administered to sue | child an immunizing dose of pri phylactic diphtheria agent whic meets the standard approved h the United States Public Healt Service of such biologic pr< J ducts." Furthermore, the law (sectio 4) requires that a "certificate < immunization shali be presentc to school authorities upon admi! sion to any public, private c parochial school in North Cai olina. R. E.

(Continued on page 4) xporting ood Shipments running and shrimp are found in plentiful quantities, it is very probably that the production and exports during a single week often run to double that of last week. Another cold spell will apparently have to strike before the mullett runs really set in. At the same time, if weather conditions permit, the taking of shrimp will really begin. With all the preparations now in effect, there should be a week or two between now and the last of November when the seafood shipments from along the coast of Brunswick will grow to staggering proportions. When one takes into account the highly concentrated nature of seafoods, especially in the case of shrimp, even last weeks exportage of 130 -tons for the coast of Brunswick is something to blow about, The Pilot Covers Brunswick County * $1.50 PER YEA? kets Re-Open 1 geOf 14-Cent Weed Farmers -? " Most Of The Offerings Oh Border Belt Floors Were Of Inferior Grade Aha Farmers Appeared To Be Satisfied BRUNSWICK IN 5 FAVOR OF CONTROL Favorable Vote Cast In Referendum Held Last On Thursday Throughout The Tobacco Section Reports from markets throughout the flue-cured tobacco belts I indicated today that re-opening (lay prices brought at least $14 a hundred pounds. These figures were unofficial and observers believed that today, the second day | of sales, would see a substantial boost in the price. A large percentage of the weed offered on the South Carolina belt were tips and inferior grades that are unusually sold at the last 'of the season. Little of the better grades were offered. Growers were apparently satis| fied with prices in general and J few tags were turned. It was ap, parent also that the market reisumed sales from where they d | closed in September because of e | the European war and the withr drawal of British buyers. All major companies and leading independent buyers, including the British buyers, were represented j ,on the markets. | Waccamaw and Shallottc township tobacco growers, interviewed last week for an estimate on the percentage of growers in Brunswick who would vote for crop control, showed remarkable accuracy. A cross checking of the n answers given this paper indlcat:r; ed that about 85 per cent would vote for control. The actual r$,suits showed something over 90 [ per cent as having voted that * i way. xf Light Session Before Recorder 191 i ?-' | 1- All Cases Except One Were >n | Disposed Of Monday Before Noon As Judge Stanlcl aland Had Small Docket le 'e In Recorder's court here Monday all cases except one were disa. posed of before noon and Judge h Walter L.
