Made by Holmes and Daw
son of Norfolk--Increas
ed Demand for the Prod
uct—Quality Better this
Year-- Bi-Products are
in Great Demand
For sixteen years Hblrnts and
4 Dawson, of Norfolk, have issued
annual reports of the peanut crop
at it* maturity. Following is a
part of the report for 1909:
The crop as a whole appears to
be of better quality than last year,
although the quality is much poo»er
this year than the average, as las!
season's ciop was of the poorest
xjuality iu years.
' The reports show that the yield
iu bushels per acre is much uuder
year, the estimate being only
k 32 bushels to the acre as compared
with a yield of 50 busht le last year.
p While the peauyt crop of Vir
ginia and North Carolina can not
be accurately estimated, yet it is
generally conceded we believe it to
be about 8,000,000 bushels, and in
/order to form a ba-is of calcuatiou
we will assume that the 1908 crop
equaled this quantity and-by taking
the yield of 50 bushels per acre, as
reported for this crop, the calcua
tiou would show that 160,000 acres
were in cultivation last season.
When we add the 6 per cent in
crease in acreage for this season to
the 160,000 acres as being in culti
vation this season. This acreage
is figured at 32 bushels to the acre,
If which the reported yield this sea-
V son, will give a total crop of 5.427,-
B 200 bushels for this year as against
a crop of 8 000,000 bushels for last
year. 1 > •
Again, taking the 8,000,000
bushels as a basis for last year's
/ crop and calculating 67 per cent of
that crop, which is our correspond
ent's estimate, it will give a crop
for this year of 5,360,000 bushels,
which goes to show that whether
figured on the basis of the yield of
32 bushels per acre or on the basis
1 of 67 per cent of last years crop,
there is only a slight variation in
the result, which in a large measure
confirms our correspondent's esti
f From the foregoing reports, esti
mates and calcuations, it is evident
[\ that the present peanut crop of
L Virginia and North Carolina is
I unusually short when we consider
f * the increased acreage.
j The peanut trade has grown
larger each succeeding year, and
it is probable that it will continue
expand, whether we produce a
f short or large crop When we
come to consider that the crop of
last season, with the exception of
L a few thousand bags, was taken
1 by the trade, and wheq we further
L consider that the same quantity
could have beenn coneumed at even
higher prices than prevailed, it
would seem that the present crop.
at a higher valuation, can be used
* up before another crop is ready tor
In recent years the manufacture
( of bi-products, such as peanut
1 butter, confections, etc., has large
ly increased and the requirements
rof this branch of the industry fire
much larger than ever before.
Large plants are in operation in
Norfolk and other cities, which
/ make a specialty of manufacturing
these products. One of the largest
of r these bi-products i 9 peanut
butter. This product is now be
coming more and more popular
each year, its use as a food having
been fully demonstrated and its
development is reuiakable consid
i ering the short time that it has
* been manufactured. It has proved
L to be a most wholesome and nutri
" tious food and has largely taken
- the place of meat and has a large
• sale, especially throughout tbe
.North and West.
An Interesting: Meeting:
The first session of the Woman's
Auxiliary in the new jeir which
begins with the Advent season, was
held on Thursday afternoon of Inst
week at the home of Mrs. James G.
Staton on Main Street. Miss Hat
tie Thrower called the meeting to
order at 3:30 o'clock, and the Rev.
W. J. Gordon conducted the devo
tional services. All the newly
elected officers were present except
the vice-president, Mrs Frank
Barnes, who was out of town. The
treasurer reportei Sls 59 on hand.
She was instructed to forward SB.OO
to tlie church at Warsaw and $5 00
for General Missions, these sums
being some apportionments that
the Auxdiary was asked to meet.
The committee on the box for the
ludiau Missions reported that the
gifts had been packed and shipped
to Oneida Wiscons'n, same having
been valued at $35 00. After
same discussion, it was agreed to
collect articles for a box to be sent
to the Thompson Orphanage, the
date of collection to be December
Other minor business was attend
ed after which the president
welcomed Mrs S Justus Everett,
President of the Woman's Mission
ary Society of the Roanoke Asso
ciation, Missionary Baptist Church,
who had been invited to address the
Auxiliary. Mrs Everett is easily
one of the foremost missionary
workers in East Carolina, and
whenever she can by a word or act
help advance the cause of Christ's
Kingdom, she gladly gives of her
self, as the true toltower will. The
subject of Missions is such a broad
one that to cull therefrom the most
vital points and yet lose none of
the beauty of the call that the
Master make to us, requires careful
thought, a broad knowledge and a
heart filled with love for God and
humanity everywhere. Every re
quirement is possessed by Mrs.
Everett and her address was full of
sound reasoning clothed in choice
language that found lodgment In
the hearts of her hearers. She
was warmly thanked and the free
dom of the Auxiliary was extend
ed to her at auy time that she caref
to attend its meetings.
Before the meeting closed, fruit
punch, cake and grapes were served
by Mrs. Staton. Maps of China
with its Mission fields and the
Christian and Non-Christian world
Were exhibited on the walls and
much interest was manifested in
the examination of them. At 5
o'clock the meeting adjourned.
The next session will be held 011
the 16th. instant.
