We regret very much to hear of
the lllneas of our good friend, Mr.
Nat V. Jordan, who Is being treated
at Watts hospital, Durham. Nat is
not only a good neighbor, a good
farmer, but he is a good sport and
many- have been the times when
this column had lots of fun at his
expense. We sincerely hope he will
improve rapidly, and soon return to
his friends. .
Mr. N. P. (Prank) Brooks of Hur
dle Mills, R. 1, is what We term a
real 100 per cent good citizen; lie
was here Mohday with another
load of good tobacco and went away
perfectly satisfied. Prank says he
Just wanted to be sure of himself,
so he tried another market, but
found that Roxboro was leading the
procession, and?like a good Coun
tyman?says the remalndei of his
crop "will be. sold on this market.
Would there were hundreds more of
Frank-says he was born and rear
ed in the good county of Person
and he expects to spend the remain
der of his days here.
Roxboro was in all of her glory
Monday; a circus was in town, the
streets were crowded with wagons,
trucks and automobiles loaded with
tobacco, a football game in the
ternoon, and, best of all, carpen
ters were at work on the commun
ity building. Truth to tell, we Just
simply could not take it all in.
6ur merchants are reaping a
golden harvest now, and if they
would further increase their sales
we would whisper to them that an
advertisement in this family Journal
will do the trick.
We see It stated that three
fourths of the tobacco In the east
ern belt has been sold, and the way
they are selling it in the middle
and old belt it looks as if there will
be mighty little left by the last of
the year. Well, we do not J>lame
the farmer for selling, for it surely
is high on the Roxboro market.
The second cattle sale in. Macon
County resulted in 346 head being
sold. Most of the animals were culls
which would not pay for wintering.
