I Lights Fail and Diiver Fails
To Keep Car In The

Primitive Baptist At Walnut
Preparing To Krect Mouse
j of Worship —Tobacco
Walnut Cove, Sent. 11.- A
dangerous auto accident occur
red on Main street early Monday
morning when the big seven
passenger car owned by Mr. W.
F. Bowles and driven by his
chaffeur. Dock Ingram, turned
turtle, plunging into a deep
side ditch. The driver states
that he was returning from a
trip to Dan bury about three
o'clock and that when near town
his lights went out and that he
decided to continue without
them. When he was near the
scene of the accident he felt the
car gradually creeping out of
the road and all efforts toward
3teering it back were futile.,
Suddenly the heavy car gave a,
lurch and turned wheels up into'
the ravine of mud and water'
carrying the chaffeur with it. |
The steering wheel was wrench
ed into three pieces, the wind
shield smashed and the top
demolished but for some miracul
ous reason the driver crawled
from beneath the debris unhurt.
Fortunately no other passengers
were in the car.
The idea of a Primitive Bap
tist church at this place is no
longer an idle dream but will
soon be a reality. Members and
friends of this faith are working
hard with great success solicit
ing funds with which to erect
the building which will be locat
ed on the lot adjoining the high
school property. The liberal
donations and subscriptions both
locallv and at a distance towards
this worthy cause are only sug
gestive of the high esteem these
good people hold in the hearts
of the people. Mr. and Mrs. J.
A. Fagg and Mr. and Mrs. J.
Wesley Morefield spent a day
in Winston-Salem last week in
the interest of the building fund
and met with splendid success,
It is hoped to have the building
completed in the early fall.
News from Messrs. E. J. Davis
& Son, at Fairmont, and from
Mr. J. C. Hutcherson. atTarbor,
is to the effect that tobacco is
still selling well, in fact that )
prices are gradually growing,
better. These gentlemen will
arrive here to open the ware
house on Oct. 3. Very little
tobacco will be sold from this i
county before that date and the]
farmers are urged to sell their
first load on the Walnut Cove

' MR. KIGER HAS SILO.
Something New For Stokes
=-To Engage In LiveStoc.k
County Agent W. p. Holt spent
( several days last week in north
j eastern Stokes assisting Mr. X.
i'. Kiger in building a silo, which
so far as we have learned, is
■ something new fur this county.
Mr. Kiger is planing to give
more attention to live stock, and
I realizes by means of a silo that
jhe can utilize his feed crops in
i this manner more economically
| and at the same time receive
| great returns from his stock. He
| has not yet fully fully decided
i whether he will engage in beef
' production or dairy products.
But we think he expects to keep
dairy cattle and produce cream
for shipment to the near by
creameries. Mr. Kiger is, how-
I ever, somewhat interested in
1 breeding work stock, and can
: show some fair specimens of
Percheron grade colts. He is
having success along this line
and we feel his success assured
I in this new undertaking and wish
|to recommend his example to
I other farmers of the county. He
I says 10 cent tobacco doesn't ap
i peal to him, while grass and live
! stock can be produced so cheaply
!on the same soil with less labor.
Governor Craig has proclaimed
i 1 October 5 as Arbor Day and asks

Forsyth County Highway
Commissioners Order Road
From Stokes Line to
Dennis Built at Once.
At a meeting of the Forsyth
county highway commissioners
the past week they ordered a
new road built from the Stokes
county line at Fulp to Dennis
station. It was decided to build
the new road all the way on the
west side of the N. & W. railway.
Work on the road will be start
ed just as soon as the convicts
can be had from the Germanton
road, where they are now work
The Dennis-Fulp road is a part
of the main highway between
Danburv and Winston-Salem and
as soon as completed it will make
the time to Winston-Salem some
ten or fifteen minutes less.
There has been much discuss
ion over whether or not the road
should be built on the east or
west side of the railroad. The
commission decided the contro
versy however, by ordering the
road built there after a complete
investigation had been made.
There have been already two
"sure signs" that there will be
heavy snows this winter. Twice
during August there were dense
fogs, and this by all goose lore
and other traditions is a depend

Biliousness and Constipation.
It is certainly surprising that
any woman will endure the mis
erable feelings caused by bilious
ness and constipation, when re

tle expense. Mrs. Chas. Peck,

KILLED HUGE EAGLEJ
Dossie Young, the Reporter's
Printer "Devil," Captures
Rarest Bird Ever Seen In
Probably the largest bald
eagle ever seen in this section
was kiiled near Dan bury today
l-y Dossie Young, the Reporter's
young printer "devil." The
bird measures fully seven feet
across from tip to tip and weighs
about fifteen pounds. The eagle
is a very old one as is shown by
its perfectly white head and
tail feathers, the plumage of the
body being dark. I'ntil they
i are very old bald eagles are
dark all over, according to au
thorities on the subject.
Dossie was out squirrel hunt
ing early this morning and while
1 sitting in the woods watching
for game the huge bird came
over and alighted in a tall three
near him when he shot it.
Though quite young Dossie is
a very successful hunter. He
is naturally very proud of his
prize and the boys in the office
believe that he had much rather
have captured this rare bird
than discovered a pot of gold.

King, Route 2, Sept. I:J.-The
people of Yadkin township are
making arrangements to hold an
; election on good roads tn the near
future. We hope that the voters
will not become impatient, be
cause this is only a beginning
and we cannot build through
every man's plantation. Let's
build the important roads first,
and as we get able build exten
sions. Stokes county is said to
have the best stock of any county
in the State and in order to keep
better stock we must build better
roads to favor them. We will
have to do something, for all
other counties surrounding Stokes
are building good roads and good
people locate in counties where
there are good roads and good
schools, and if our county stands
back in this old rut ten years
longer it will be nothing more
I than a sheep pasture,
i The clouds have rolled back, the
rain has ceased and the hot sun
is now here and the farmers are
■ busy harvesting their crop of to
j bacco. Some few of them, with
|squinchedup eyes, say that they
1 had rather do without a crop
| than to harvest it in a hot time
! like this. We suppose next
year there will be a lot of late
tobacco so that those fellows can
harvest theirs when it is cool,
j We suppose the farmers will
buy a lot of baled hay next
i sprinpr, as there is very little
1 feed being made through this
Some of the farmers have been
! preparing wheat land, but fertil
j izer is so high we are afraid there
will not be much of a wheat crop
: sown. Some say they can take
| their money they pay for fertili
zers and buy Hour. Those that
do this will make it mighty hard
i on the little tobacco crop,

the surrounding country but we
