a welcome visitor Monday. Sam said
alter disposing of hlr. tobacco crop
last year he was just- about ready
to give up and quit; but things are
different lust now. He had sold a
Iqad. of tobacco and said he believed
thereto- Deal was going ib put him
on'top once more.
Thad K^, Jones, who is well
known to our readers for the splen
. did articles he semis in/was a
'pleasant visitor Monday. Mr. Jones
says he did not -have a crop this
year, but he was with his little
grandson who sold his small patch
of tobacco and realized a little more
than $100 for the patch. Mr. Jones
Is convinced that he quit raising
tobacco one year too soon.
Mr. R. L. Paylor, another good.
Person county farmer, was a wel
come caller last Thursday. He re
ported a most satisfactory sale
which averaged $39.14. Averages of
$40 and $50 are of common occur
rence on this market.
Along about this time every year
the Rotary club entertains the
teachers of the town, and they are
enjoyable meetings, but the last
was especialy enjoyable for this
writer. We had the pleasure of be
ing seated between two of-the most
interesting and most charming
young ladies connected with the
teaching force, Miss Inda Collins,
principal of the Grammar school,
and Miss Claire Harris of the fa
culty of the grammar school. Both of
these young ladles are past mas
ters at repartee, and while some
times It stung, still, we enjoyed
every minute of the evening and
regretted when the parting song
Smiles, smiles, smiles, every one
with tobacco is smiling, and why
not? Any kind of a load will net
more than a hundred dollars?and
that is real money, we tell you.
The man who hauls his tobacco
to some foreign market is simply
losing money and wasting time, for
the Roxboro market is showing
them the way. Several loads av
eraged above fifty dollars per hun-_
dred here Monday. Stick to Roxboro.
In spite of wet weather, some Ca
tawba farmers say they will tore
from 50 to 60 tons of hay. Much of
is a fine quality of lespedeza.
