The high prices of tobacco and cot
ton have brought hundreds of people
to Smithfield to do Nthcir fall trading.
The dry goods and clothing people
here have been exceedingly busy for
the past few weeks. They say that
last week was the biggest business
in their line of any week in the history
of the town. With such a tobacco
and cotton market people are coming
to Smithfield who have not always
been in the habit of coming here to
trade. Our merchants keep up with
the times and carry stocks of goods
that would do credit to. the larger
places. Th<y trading public know this
and that is why they keep the mer
chants in Smithfield busy from morn
ing until night waiting on them.

Smithfield cotton mhrket gets ahead
>f the bigger towns. Last Tuesday,
for instance, the fleecy staple was
quoted in Raleigh at 26$i cents a
pound. At Norfolk it was 27%; New
k'ork 27.2ft; Galveston, Texas, 26.75;
On the Wilmington market the price

The Woman's Club Meets.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Woman's Club was held Wednesday
afternoon at the elub room. After the
regular routine of business several
important undertakings were discuss
ed. In the first place, it was decided
to devo; a part of the November
meeting to the study of Tuberculosis.
A helpful and instructive program
will be arranged, and it is hop*>d that
much interest will be taken in the
Among the other things discussed
was the District Meeting of the Sixth
District of the North Carolina Wom
an's Clubs. Mrs. II. L. Skinner is
chairman of the Sixth District and
the Smithfk'ld Club has invited this
meeting to be held in Smithfield, on
October 24th. The Sixth District is
composed of twelve cltlbs r.nd ah in
teresting session may be looked for.
Another thing which should be of
interest to the public at large which
was undertaken was the raising of a
fund to provide the North Carolina
soldiers at Camp Jackson with books,
magazines and newspapers. Hoxes
have been placed at Hood Bros, and
at the D. H. Creocli Drug Company
and any contribution which any one
may wish to give to this need will be
Getting Money for the Red Cross.
The Red Cross Chapter of Smith
field has adopted various methods of
getting funds for their work. They
have pone on the warehouse floors
and appealed to the farmers who had
tobacco to sell to give a handful or a
rtick of tobacco to the cause. Very few
who had tobacco on "\he floors have
turned a deaf ear to their appeal. In
this manner they have raised more
than $125. They have placed a big
Lox at the gins of Mr. J. W. Ste
phenson and Mr. W. M. Sanders at
Smithflold, and are asking those who
bring cotton to these gins to help a
little by putting cotton in the box as
a donation to the Red Cross work. No
doubt th< appeal will reach many and
much money will be realized in this
