Walnut Cove, Sept. 29.—Since
the opening sale last Tuesday
the warehouses have been sell
ing several loads of the weed
each day with pleasing results
to the farmers. If there is any
change at all in the prices it is
safe that tobacco is a few
cents higher this week than it
was on the opening sales. The
average prices for last week on
this market will compare favor
ably with any of the larger
places, in fact some farmers
who have sold both here and at
other places are better pleased |
with the average made here
and will market their entire
crop at this point.
The first frost of the season
was noticeable here Sunday
morning, although no damage!
was done to the growing crops
The blighted sweet potato vines
serve as a reminder to the
farmers that all crops subject to
the ravages of Jack Frost must
be rapidly harvested.
Mr. E. W. Fowler this week
3old to Mr. Jno. R. Smith his
bungalow and lot on North
Main Street, and Mr. Smith ex
pects in the near future to sell
his farm north of town and re
move his family here. This is
one of the handsomest residences
in town and adds a great deal to
the appearance of that part of
the street. Among the many
houses in course of construction
in that section are those of
Messrs. Joe Isom, J. Wesley
Morefield, C. M. Jones, J. A.
Hicks, 1). S. Watkins. Dr. J. W.
Neal and others. Lots are being
sold every week to parties who
expect to build here: many
of them seeking the advantages
of the school while others will
engage in different lines of
business with a view to making
it their permanent home. Every
newcomer will receive a hearty
welcome from our citizens who
are progressive, enthusiastic and
optimistic regarding the growth
and prospects of Walnut Cove.
The town commissioners at a
recent meeting accepted a prop-,
osition from the Walnut Cove
