Money has been tight. Trade
has been only moderately fair
The past two months have not been
keenly active. No reason can be
assigned for the dullness of this
■ period but it seemed to have been
general in all sections of the South,
i The outlook for the fall season is
much brighter than it has been for
several years. Cotton will hardly
sell below fifteen cents. The far
mers have diversified their crops
and improved the lands to such an
extent that the value the acre has
been greatly euchanced. Merc
hants have not bought heavily for
the newseason. Extreme conser
vatism has been a characteristic of
the Southern merchant since 1907.
The cotton mills will resume on
full time prior to October. Many
are now running on lull time. The
crop outlook is very good. Collec
tions have been only fair. Some
merchants have been inclined to
worry over the situation but an in
vestigation shows that the past sea
son was even a better one for
retailers than 1909. To those who
are Inclined to worry this homily,
written somewhere is dedicated:
"A poor old man is Wombat Smith;
He used bis brains to worry with.
His wealthy brother, be it s^id,
Employed his brains to get ahead.
That man, we learn, success attains
Who aims to utilize his brains."

Home Coming ot Carolinians
There is just now a great deal of
interest in North Carolina in the
Middle-West, where there are not
only thousands ot former North
Carolinians, who have never for
gotten their mother statevbut great
numbers of other people jwho are
ior the first time learning some
thing about this state and its pos
sibi'itics In nearly every coin
. munity in Noith Carolina there are
people who have relatives in Jlu-
West whi would like to visit this
state. They uovv have an excel
lent opportunity to inform these
ex North Carolinians that they can
, avail themselves of very low rates
from Ohio, Illinois and Indianua.

and to show their cheapness it may ,
be stated that the fare from Cin

. only $1630; children under 12,
years of age being given half fare.
It would be well for people in this

Mizell with the two women started
out to catch Mr. Bruin in his noli- !

out. They were successful and as
the beast appeared in the open he
was killed by Mr. Mizell The
