District Agent B. T. Ferguson, of Rak>igh had charge of the meeting. County Agent Z. T. Moore, of Edge combe, and Professor W. T. Overby, agricultural leader in the Jamesville schools, participated in the meeting. A number of vital subjects were discussed, the need of a better knowl edge of soils for various crops being pointed out as a very important one, especially where tobacco is to be culti vated. The need for more livestock was also stressed at length, the milk cow form ing the center. With all our' waste lands, Mr. Ferguson pointed out that we only have one milk cow for every 21 people. Mr. Ferguson stated that the labor cost for a dollar unit value in live stock is much less than the cost for farm crops that have to be planted, i cultivated and housed. That we are attacking the problem' at a decided disadvantage was point-| ed out by the agent when he stated that Martin County people buy nearly ] one ton of fertiliser per inhabitant and we raise a little more than one hog , for each person. We have about two laying hens for each individual. The question of seed was taken up and the importance of seed selection 1 was stressed by the peakers.... Mr. Zeno Moore, one of the oldest county agents in the State and who has carried on a splendid work, pre- ; sented a map showing one of the main reasons for our present herd times. , The map line running from the Middlewest into North Carolina. This line was loaded down with side meat, flour, corn and hay to feed the people of this State. On the same line was a conveyor with tobacco, cot ton and peanut money on its way for the crops coming from the west. I POULTRY CAR NEXT MONTH First Car Scheduled To Be Loaded Here About January 15 According to a schedule announced yesterday, the first of a number of poultry cars to be run in this county this winter and next spring will be loaded here the 16th of next month.

The cars will be run through the county each month, beginning next month and bontinuing through next June, or until such a time as the load-' ings will not be sufficient to justify' the operations. Poultry shipment have increased rspidly in this county during the last two years, and the increase is expect ed to be even greater next year when shipping starts.

ROBERSONVILLE TIES EDENTON 4. Ends Season With Record of Six Victories and Three Tie Games l Robersonville, Dec. 6.—(Special to 1 The Enterprise).—Robersonville High Sehool football team closed its season last Tuesday night, playing the heavy | Edenton team to a scoreless tie, at I Edenton. Since this was the first night , football game to be played in the State, it attracted a large crowd. The I field was lighted* with twenty 260 i watt bulbs, and a white football was : used. i Robersonville received the kickoff and started down the field for a I touchdown, but fumbled with just a few yards to go. The Bobersonville lads outplayed the Iqcals in the first three quarters, but Edenton seemed to have the edge in the last period of the game. . The Robersonville lads lost several { chances to score by fumbling.' The I locals attempted two passes, but ' fsiled to complete any. Robersonville I attempted three and completed tWo. Coach Ainsley had to remove Herbert Pope, left halfback, from the game after the first play with an injured ankle. Later Harold Manning, Rober sonville's. center, had to be carried from the field with what was thought I to be a broken leg. The playing of Rogerson was the outstanding feature of the Roberson ville line. John Warren, quarterback, got loose for a 40-yard run which re sulted Tn a touchdown, but was called back because the referee had blown his whistle. | „ fender the direction of Coach Ains ley, the Robersonville team has play ed nine games,, winning six and play ling three te a tie. They have scored 166 points against the 19 made by , their opponents. The team can still say its goal line has not been crossed st home in (wo years. The squad this year made the best record of their | csreer and scored more points than ever before. I The beys are turning their atten tion to basketball. Under the direction of Coach Ainsley, practice will be held every day in the high school au ditorium.

A. Lilley by Roscoe Peel in Wash ington two weeks ago was found parked on a Raleigh street last Sat urday, but no Information concerning Peel could be had. When questioned Wednesday the Raleigh police chief stated: "There was nobody in the car and we have no knowledge of the where abouts of Mr. Peel. So far as we have been able to ascertain, he has not been seen around Raleigh. The car has not been damaged in any way. Whoever had been driving it evidently was afraid to go through the business section of the city, so he drove it up to the curb on Eden ton Street and left it there. So far as that goes, however, he could have skirted the city and continued on his way, had he BO desirad. I couldnt say about that. All we know is that we have the car and that we have no knowledge con cerning whether Peei is in Raleigh or not." Roscoe Peel, formerly of this coun ty, but who had lived in Washing ton during the past several years, borrowed Mr. Lilly's car to go to the country foi a short while. He failed to return, leaving no informaUon behind to tell where he had gone.

RECORDER HAD BUSY DAY HERE LAST TUESDAY Is First Session Held Since Early in November; 18 Cases Called TO MISS NEXT WEEK Next Session To Be Held Tuesday December 17; Twelve Cases Tried, 2 Continued This Week Holding a session for the first time since November 12, the recorder's court here last Tuesday called [ eighteen cases, trying twelve, con tinuing two and issuing four other*. j Next week the superior court will be in session, the recorder's court convening again Tuesday, Decem ber 17. David Biggs, colored, was brought into the court charged with manufac turing liquor. Biggs, unable to exer- 1 cise all his faculties on account of a ! stroke of paralysis suffered some time 1 ago, pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to twelve months in jail, the term to begin at the discre tion of the court. Jasper ami Charlie Moore, charged with an affray, entered pleas of not guilty, the court, after hearing the evidence, established guilt in both cases. Judgment was suspended in two cases upon the payment of the costs. This did not meet with the boys' approval and they appealed their cases, bond being fixed in the sum of SSO in both cases. Linwood Bunch, facing a similar charge as that faced by the Moore boys, entered a plea of not guilty to the charge. The court found him guilty of simple assault. He was fined S6O and taxed with the costs. Hunch, who lives in Portsmouth, apparently ac cepted the decision rather than lose time and money traveling back for another court. Tho affray between the Moores and Bunch is understood to have started over children of Sam, a brother to Charles and Jasper. In this connection Hunch stated, "Mrs. Sam Moore hired me to bring her to ! get the children which the juvenile court advised her to do to my own knowledge. I had nothing to do with tuking the children from Mr. Moore, only I made passage to Virginia after the chief of police told Mrs. G. S. Moore to give the children to their mother." It is understood that Mr. and Mrs. Sam Moore separated, that following their parting the children were cared for by the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Moore here. Mrs. Moore lives in Portsmouth. Julia Williams, aiding and abetting jail breaking, was sentenced to twelve months n jail when the court found her guilty as charged. She appealed the case, bond being fixed in the sum of S6OO. Pleading guilty of being drunk and disorderly and resisting an officer, Dan L. Whitehurst was given 12 months on the roais, the sentence to start ut. the discretion of the court. By consent, judgment was suspend- 1 ed in the case charging Dewey Hatha way with an assault with a deadly weapon. Hir, good behavior was pledg ed and he was required to pay a fine j of S4O und the costs. Charged withTorcible trespass, Na than and Felix Staton entered pleas of not guilty. The court found them guilty. Judgment was suspended in the case upon the payment of the costs. The defendants appealed, bond of S6O jointly, was required. Walter Lee and Charlie Jones, pleading guilty of manufacturing liquor, were given 12 months each on the roads, the last eight monthß of the terms to be suspended upon good behavior of the defendants. Hubert Corey, Lee Griffin and Claudius Peel were given six months suspended sentences, required to pay the costs incurred and, S2O to the school fund when they were found guilty of an affray at the Corey's school house recently. Jim Corey and Matthew Griffin have not been taken at this time and Howard Peel was found not guilty. Pleading guilty of abandonment and non-support, W. C. Purvis entered prayer fcr judgment, which was con tinued until the first Tuesday in June, 1930 upon the payment of the cost of the action and his entering into bond in the sum* of $760 and paying into the court each month S4O. 1 1 Fred Hanner was fined S6O and tax ed with the costs when he pleaded guilty of driving an automobile while intoxicated.

Advertiser* WiU Find Our CoL unm« a Latchkey to Over 1,600 Home. of Martin County ESTABLISHED 18' m WILL ENABLE ALL GROWERS TO GET STANDARD PRICE Station Maintained Here By Federal and State Agri cultural Departments METHOD DESCRIBED i wo Are-Stations Being Maintained in Eastern Carolina; Other One In Edenton In an effort to establish a standard basis for grading peanuts, th^pFed- t eral and State Departments of culture have established two Stations in Eastern North Carolina this sea son, one of the statibnTlifftHSslycated here dnd a second in JjqentoiK*Mi. * O. H. Henley, a government grading expert, arrived this week from Ral eigh to take charge of the station here. While several tests have been" made here already, they have-not been official and no reports were made on the findings. The service, new to this section, is calculated to enable the growers to get a standard price for their pea nuts; that is, through the tests the growers will know the exact quality of their crop. Demonstrating briefly the process followed in making the tests yester day morning, Mr. Henley stated that the grading method was rapidly gain ing favor in Virginia where he and several other graders worked last season. In making the tests, Mr. Henley explained, a double-handful of peanuts are gathered from a num ber of bags, the number of samples having a corresponding ratio with the number of bags owned by tfto farm er, and these samples, taken at ran dom, are then placed in a box and- Frbm the box the grader takes around three pounds of the peanuts to continue the test. Screens, made according to govern ment specifications, are then brought into use, one of which holds a certain grade of nut and allows the others to fall through. Other screens are used to determine the quality to the very lowest grade. The peanuts are care fully weighed, each grade to itself. The peanut* are then shelled and a similar process as the one used in handling the peanut in the. shell is followed. The nuts are then weighed and the results checked, the findings giving a grade that is sanctioned by the agricultural departments. These tests establishing the quality of the fanner's stock, it is under stood, »r valuable in that they eliminate the "buying the pig in the poke" feature so common in the sale of crops where quality is not easily determined. There are several other advantages made possible by the tests, ones that aid both the er and the cleaner, it was pointed out. WMIe the work is in its infancy here this year, it is expected that the grading will meet with a marked suc cess once it is given a try-out. Mr. Henley has established headquarters in the office of County Agent T. B. Brandon here, and plans to start making official tests within the next day or two. To carry on the work, the govern ment is making a small charge of $2.50. The amount is far below the actual cost incurred in making the" test, and is of much value to the grower, especially to the one having a large crop. Mr. Henley will make tests in this county and surrounding territory, in cluding Bertie and Washington coun ties. Only two or three tests can be made in a day, it was stated. Government Fruit Was Visitor Here Thursday Mr. Harris, government fruit in spector, and Capt. Farmer of the 1 State Highway PttroJ" with five of ; his patrolmen wert in town yesterday inspecting Florida fruits in the hands ; of the grocerymen. They found no fruits here that : had not been properly inspected and | shipped in under the government regu lations. Any fruits which have not been properly inspected and tagged are subject to confiscation, it is under stood. ..>!■* Federal Agents Capture Three Stills in Beaufort Federal Agent F. E. Street and J. H. Rooebuck raided Thursday in , Beaufort county where they found three liquor stills, one of a 100-gal lon capacity full equipped and two 50-gallon steam stills complete. The three kettles were cold and no liquor was found. , The officers destroyed 2,000* gallons of beer. A number of buckets, old axes, roofing paper and kegs were al ! so found and destroyed.
