Troy, N. C., proved himself a better judge
of porcine weight than any of the many
experienced breeders attending the fair
at Pinehurst last week, when he won a
$10 prize by naming the exact weight of
the largest junior yearling in the show.
Cooper’s guess of 640 pounds was correct

A most daring and dare-devil stunt
was pulled off at the Pinehurst fair last
week when Mr. Claud Leavitt in his Over
land car made a flying leap of eighteen feet
over a special constructed structure. The
car used by Mr. Leavitt was a regular stock
machine, and not specially selected for
the purpose. The test was made in order
to demonstrate the durability of this well
known automobile, and it came out of the
game without a scratch. Mr. Leavitt is
the agent at Carthage, and Mr. Milton
Brewer is the representative at Vass. He
can be found at the Pilot printing office.
The Blue Fertilizer Company of Aber
deen will be in operation December 1st,
by advertisement in another column. They
call special attention to the fact that they
will make fertilizer specially adapted to
the Sandhill section and for any purpose
that wants a mixture fitted to different
crops or soil conditions. This is a home
industry and should be encouraged by
every farmer in the Sandhill country in
preferance to fertilizers that the farmers
know nothing about and sold by agents
who are only after the almighty dollar.
So don’t forget to place your order with
this new firm, if you want a square deal.
