tent that he thought he was entitled
to damages. So he started an action .
in the civil courts along wth a crimi

went out to West Virginia and reijuis

juatment Sutphin aj eed to payThnm
aa aa damages $325 and the coat of

New Tobacco Warehouse For
That Mount Airy ia to have another

Messrs A. L. Bunker and C. C. Hutch
ens, of White Plains, and N. C. Marion :
of this city^.. These, gentlemen expect

on thia warehouse property between
now and the 15ti\ of August when the
tobacco season opens.' The warehouse
will be run as The rfe«lmont Ware
house, with Mr. Maflrifo as marfkger.
Until recently Mr. Marion lived at
Siloam. He hss been for years one
of the County's most prominent farm
ers and busines.-: men, has had consid
erable experience with t'*acco, and is
well qualified to manage successfully
a warehouse business. Mr. Bunker is
one of the County's prominent citizens
and successful business men, while
Mr.Hutcheiia is a farmer, a real estate
dealer and ia widely known through
out this seclon. Thia firm should
succeed. It ia with pleasure that
auch an interesting announi emenl can
be made to tiic Surry County farmers.
Beasley and Dobson, proprietors of
Farmers Warehouse, this city, have a
force of men making improvements
getting ready for the fall bosinesa.
