complications will soon, be. well again.
8 he lost her little finger as the re
sult cf the bite, and tfbr . a time it
was feared tha,? it would be neces
sary to amputate her right arm..
The poison was prevented from ?
spreading through her system, how- j
over, and . she is nnw thought to be j
?cut of' danger ... ajnft hopes to be
home soon'. !
On the 7th al July she went into :
the corn crib on her father's farm'

large box and as she was reach
ing for liter e corn the snake's head
was protruding from under the box,

caught her finger. She was given
treatment at home by Dr. Gentry j
who reached her in HO minutes. She
was then rushed to Watts Hospital

with the result that it wa.g found
necessary to remove only a finger.

any ever seen in the community,
measured 3 feet.

by Mr. W. L. Umstead, who so suc
cessfully ran it last year. Mr. Um

T. P. Featherston, J. J*. W instead,
W. F. Long and Robert Hester. All
of these men, save Mr. Hester, are
old and tried in the warehouse busi
ness and are well known to the farm
ers of Person and acljoinine coun
ties. Mr. Hester is one of the best
known and mOst popular young men
cf the Bushy Fork section, and ft is
J conceded igeherally that they .will
sell their share of the tobacc ? of
? this- section.
; Efforts have been made to secure
i the Pioneer, but it being leased to
| the Co-op Association, it is- not
i known at this time what will be the
; outcome of this lease. However, if
j it is available it will be run by some
I wide awake man; and there will be
i. four houses hfcre next season.
I The tobaeco crop in this County is
! very promising " jast at this time,
| with a good acreage, there should
be more tobacco sold on this market
I than for several years. The wc.re

it, and we believe we can assure
j them that they will have the hearty
! cooperation of every business man
| in the town, certainly The Courier
is right behind them, and we be
Llieve the market is going to come
I into Its own.
We woirld not advisfc the farmer
to sell his tobacco on any market,
be it Roxboro or elsewhere. ? if he
