Fouf hundred people eraploved
and carrying over two hundred
foreign and domestic animals, is
the statement made by Mr. F. M.
Heaton, agent for the Sparks
shows, who was in town last Wed
nesday making arrangements for
the appearance of this big circus
here on Wednesday Oct. 30th.
The strange colony of people,
haudßome horses, rare wild animals
and the goldtn caravans are sche
duled to arrive here during the
early hours of the morning of the
above date in their own special
trains of specially built railway
cars from Neck, where
they will exhibit the day before
Circus day will begin with a big
street parade at 12 o'clock noon,
and two performances will be given
the first starting at 2 o'clock aud
the other at 8 o'clock. It is said
that the Sparks Shows have $75,-
000,00 tied up in chariots, table
auxs, floats, musical vehicles, fan
ciful and historic costumes, and
expensive and odd things of dis
tinctive parade use.
The grounds known as the Circus
Grounds have been arranged for by
the agent and a number of our
merchants have received contracts
to furnish immense quantities of
feed stuff for both man beast, to be
delivered on the show grounds
early in the morniug of show day.
The Sparks shows have improv
ed and grown remarkably during
the last few years, and-to those of
us who rtmember its former visits
comes the thought that it was al
ways a clean, moral aud entertain
ing show, and one we never hesitat
ed in having our families visit. " It
is said that the show still retain*
these features that made it such a
welcome visitor in the years gone
bv, and that its methods of doing
business with the public are still of
tbnt same'high order.
Our Tobacco Sales
The sales of the yellow weed
during September 011 every market
in the State were large. Farmers
rushed in with their crops as rapid
ly as they could grade and bring
them to market. The prices never
went down here and the buyers 011
each floor took all that was offered.
The exact figures of the sales on
the Williamston market as sent to
the levenue department were
452,740 pounds with an average
for the mou*h of fifteen cent*.
Through theentire month the price*
were as good and generally better
than on the larger markets', for tests
were made indthis fact established.
The warehousemen have given
everv mar. a square deal and will
continue to do so. Many days dur
ing the month the average 011 the
market has been in excess of the;
general average of .fifteen cents.
The Dixie warehouse sold 275,854
lbs. and the Roanoke warehouse
lbs', of the total amount

Pointers About Advertising
Somebody recently evolve thin
epigram: ''When business h good,
ndvestise some to get more bu:;i
nc-ss; when business is bad, adver
tise more to get some business." A
good saying to remember, there i:>
sound seu=e in It.
Would you think it wise, on a
ret date, to certain
sum for medical attendance and a
eel tain sum for legal services for
the ensuing year, and to refuse to
exceed that appropriation, no mat
ter what happened? Probably n"t.
Neither should you make a hard

and brightened by potted plants
and buuehes of Autumn's offerings
in beautiful roses. The color
scheme of pink and green was ef

The fact that it was the anniver
sary of the hostess' birth, was not
revealed in the invitations, and
ohly from the nature of the contest
and the large interrogation mark
in pink and green which was seen
suspended from the lamp over the
dining room, was the fuct discov
ered. The contest was interesting
and appropriate, being fifteen ques
tions the answers to which" ended
in age. Mrtk C. B. Hassell made
the highest score aud a perfect one.
A delicious salad course and Neo
politan cream with cakes were
served, and the birthday cake which
ornamented the center of the table,
was cut by the guests.

Greatest Trust of All
A great deal has been said and
written concerning the trusts, and
one question that is asked of every
candidate is his position on the
trust issue. There is a cry through
out the laud for the control of
greedy corporations and for the
rising of the people against special
privilege. But it should not be
forgotten that the liquor trust is
the greatest and greedist of them
all. Most of the trusts demand
only money; the liquor trust takes
that and more too. It feeds on the
bodies and souls of men as
well as on their earnings. Nothing
is too sacred, nothing too valuable
—it wants all. If there were no
other reason why the Ikjuor busi
ness should be abolished, the fact
that it is so grasping, greedy and
unscrupulous is enough to warrant
the good citizenship of Artierica in
putting it to the death.—Exchange

to St Luke's Hospital, Richmond,

si.oo a Year in Advance
A Destructive Cotton
Anthraeuose (Glotnerella Gossi
pii), oce of the most destructive
cotton diseases to be found in the
cotton best is fast gaining hold in
Martin County. Microscopic ex
aminations have been made by the
writer within the last week and the
disease found to cover as many as
one hundred and fifty acres of dis
eased cotton in the county. -i '
The first technical description of
the disease -was given in 1990.
The diKease is very destructive in
some localities and in Georgia the
loss last year was estimated to have
been $14,750,000, or near 25 per
cent of the crop.
The disease is mjst conspicious
upon the bolls, where it produces
unsightly ulcers, at first black and
bearing a coat of pink mycelium,
or covering. The ulcers have
daik brown to black water borders
which vary- in diameter. When
small the spots are re!di»h and
slightly depressed. Attacks upon
young bolls stop their growth and
induce permature ripening and im
It is thought to follow diseased
seed, and there is abundant evid
ence that it is carried from year to
year in the seed. It is also possible
for the spores to travel by means of
the wind, land washiug or ou the
feet of animals. No mode of seed
treatment has proved reliable.
Any information the writer is
able to furnish will be done gladly
upon request A failure to exter
minate the disease will mean a
great loss to the county. Micros
copic examinations will be made
free if a single boll is collected and
sent to Box 53. N. C.
