The high prices of tobacco and cot ton have brought hundreds of people to Smithfield to do Nthcir fall trading.

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. A SOLDIER BOY'S LIFE SAVED You Fanners can do it.

Receipts 717 bales. f The price at Smithfield on the same lay was 27 to 27 1-2. When in doubt about what market o sell cotton on, alwaya try Smith ieid. ? * British Casualties.

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 study. 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 promptly forwarded. 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 way. Tuesd:\ morning Turlington Grad ed School responded to the call which the Governor made recently in ob serving Fire Prevention IV.y. Appro priate exercises were carried out. Pa pers werv read by Misses Margaret Pou i<nd Carrie Brodi<; Sanders. Mr. John W1 ite Ives read the Governor's Proclamation. Mr. W. W. Cole a short talk on Fire Prevention. Pa triotic songs interspersed the pro gram. Great Demand for Fords. , Mr. Ransom Sanders, Ford repre sentative, finds the demand for Ford ears greater than the supply at his command. He can easily sell three or four times as many as he can fret. The unprecedented prices the f: rm ers have been getting for tobacco and cotton have placed many of them on Easy street. They are paying off debts, buying all their noeds and then having the ready cash to buy an automobile. THE SMITHFIELD MARKET.
