MUCH DAMAGE TO
BY CUT WORMS
Wire and Cut Worms Ex
pected To Cause Decrease
Pew Farmer* Have Finished Trans
planting and Many Are Now
Trying to Get Plants
Although many farmers have not
finished transplanting their tobacco,
the wire worm and cut worm is
destroying to a very great extent much
of that which has been set out, and it
now looks as if there will be a decided
decrease in the crop in this section this
year. One farmer, reporting yester
day, stated that he found seven cut
worms in one row of his tobacco and
that he was satisfied the pests were all
over his field. 'I have transplanted
six acres and have fifteen more that
have not been touched on account .of
the shortage in plants, but it looks as
if I will have to transplant the entire
crop,' the farmer stated. The cool
weather last week prevented the
growth of plants and it is almost cer
tain that transplanting will continue
well into next week.
Farmers from Bertie were in this
section last week looking for plants.
In that county many farmers state that
* unless plants can be gotten elsewhere
a decrease will result in certain parts
of that county.
Very few farmers have finished with
their transplanting in this section, and
in many of the cases where the plants
have been placed, the worm are cutting
into the crop to a great extent. The
dcrease, which is very evident at this
time, has not been estimated as to ex
tent, but where there was an increase
forecasted a few weks ago' a decrease
is expected at this time.
Various methods have been suggest
ed for the control of the wire and cut
worms, but no method has been of any
value in stopping the destructive work
of the worms. Turpentine placed in
the water used in transplanting has
been tried, but it has proved of no
value, many farmers state. The de
struction of the worm will continue un
til hot weather sets in, farmers Dialed

FORGOT SHE HAD
$106.07 IN BANK
Mrs. R. T. Roberson Sur
prised When Notified
Of Old Account
How would you feel if summoned
to a bank on important business?
Would your first thought be of that
account "overdrawn" or of a note
past due? Would there be a reac
tion of spirit if told that the bank
wished to make you a present?
This is virtually what happened
here this week when Mrs. R. T. Rob
erson was notified that she had
$106.07 to her credit in the Farm
ers and Merchants bank. A few
years ago Mrs. Rooerson placed a
certain amount of money in the
Farmers and Merchants bank here
and when her husband died a few
months later, she continued bank
ing but signed her checks, "Mrs
Annie P. Roberson." In some way
she lost sight of the balance, and it
continued untouched until recently
bank officials in executing the duties
of the bank found that Mrs. R. T.
Roberson and Mrs. Annie P. Rober
son were one and the same. Mrs.
Roberson was naturally delighted to
learn of the forgotten account.
For twenty-three years, the Farm
ers and Merchants bank has render
ed such a service to its customers
and many times while the services
go unnoticed, there are not many
days allowed to pass but what the
bank is every rendering the services
consistent with safe and sound bank
After relating the story, Dr. J.Ti.
Biggs, president, of the bank, stated
that the deposits intrusted to this
bank by widows, orphans and all
others who have deposited funds in
it have always been considered a

13 ARE KILLED IN
Six North Carolinians Die
As Train Hits Truck
12 OTHERS INJURED
Seven Killed in Pennsylvania Accident
and SeVeral Hurt; Grade Crossings
Thirteen people, six North Carolin
ians and seven Pennsylvanians, were
killed in two grade crossing accidents
last Sunday. TWelve persons
were injured, and several of that num
ber are expected to die.
The North Carolinians were killed
when a bus. carrying a group of peo
ple home from Sunday school, was hit
by a passenger train on the F.I rod and
Conway branch, of the Atlantic Coast
Lint, near Whiteville.
According to witnesses, the truck
ran up on the track, the driver appar-'
cntly not seeing the'approaching train.
The engineer of the train, it was said,
was on the opposite side from the truck
and. did-not see the Vehicle in time to
bring his train to a stop.-
llonian flesh was"scattered in every
direction as the pilot of the engine
plowed"7nto the heavily laijen truck.
Three of the dead were carried ap-j
proximately 350 feet by the locomotive j
and parts of limbs were scattered in \
the vicinity of the crash.
Several of the. dead were mutilated j
almost beyond recognition. Chester I
Milliard's right leg was severed from I
the body and the limbs of several of j
the children were severely mangled by
the grinding of the locomotive against
the shallow truck.
Death was practically instantaneous |
to several, but one or two of them lived '
for a few minutes after the crash.
'•The dead were carried to C'hadbourn I
where they will be prepared for burial, i
According to residents of the vic.inity |
of the. crash, the Bullards and-their I
neighbors were returning -to -their j
homes from Sunday school at, Corinth '
Church. The truck was packed with i
children and grown people, and when j
the vehicle w$ driven in the path of]
the train, it was practically impossible j
for any of them to escape,
A rescue party rushed to the scene;
and placed the dead and injured in au j
tomobiles „ahd ambulances and rushed j
them to the nearest relief stations.
In the Pennsylvania accident, two
cars .were passing over the railroad
near Erie, and had just mounted the
righKof way when the engine crashed
into them, killing s'eveii a_iwj jUjuring
Perlie L Perry Preaches at
After an absence of several years,
during which time he ha? studied at
Louisville Seminary and the Uni
versity of Louisville, Mr. Perlie P
lerry returned home and preached
his first sermon here in the Chns
tian church to a large number of
friends and acquaintances. Rev. Mr.
Perry entered the Louisville Semi
nary shortly after affiliating with
the Presbyterian church at Tarboro.
Since that time he has practically
completed his course of study at the
University in Louisville and in the
seminary there. He has done mission
work during the past one or two
summers in various parts of Canada
and is here at home for a few days
before he to resume his
studies in the Kentucky city.
"Take Heed Unto Thyself and Un
to Thy Doctrine" was the theme of
Mr. Perryls Sunday evening sermon,
in which he illustrated the love and
friendship of Paul for Timothy.
While in prison in Rome, Paul wrote
to Timothy, urging him to remain
Arm in his belief even though people
were turning from the teachings of
the gospel for the worship of idols
and gods. The same advice is needed
today, for many are turning from
Christ and are giving their time and
effort to denominational worship, the
young preacher said. In bringing
his sermon to a close, Rev. Mr
Perry stated let no man go unwarn
ed, for iftJs the duty of every Chris
tian to admonish one for his sins.
Mr* Perry was given a large hear
ing, and though the sermon was his
first before home people and wa?

Trouble Caused Purvis Refused
To Leave Pollard's Home After
Being Found With His Wile
Poplar Point wa.-j the scene of an
other killing early yesterday morn
ing when James Pollard, Negro,
found Moses' Purvis, another Negro,
in bed with his wife. After Purvis
re I used to leave the house, Pollard
went for his axe and dealt him a
death blow, striking him in the for- •
head and crushing the skull. He lived
only a short while afterwards.
When questioned by Sheriff Roe
buck and Coroner S. R. Biggs yes
terday morning, Pollard's wife stat
ed that she and her husband lived in
■I small two-room house on Mr. Don
Johnson's farm in Poplar Point, that
Pollard went to bed a short while
after supper and at a late hour in
the night he came to her room and
found Purvis in bed with her. She
stated further that he demanded
Purvis to leave the house, but in
stead of doing as he was command
ed Purvis remained and started curs
ing her husband. Pollard then told
Purvis to get out of the bed and
leave the house or he would get him
out. Upon his failure to move, Purvis
lost his life.

Sheriff, who with Coroner Biggs in
vestigated the killing. Pollard was
placed in jail yesterday and a pre

The statement given yesterday by
Pollard to officers' was very similar

agreeing that Pollard was killed
when he refused to leave the home.
It has been stated by neighbors
that Pollard had warned Purvis to

some reason Purvis had paid little
