While one of the state's witnesses, Ruth Daw, denied the charge that an illegal operation had been performed upon her and refused to testify against Hopkins, other witnesses offered testi mony considered sufficient by the court to connect the man with the alleged crime. According to the testimony of fered last Wednesday morning in a recessed session of the county court, Hopkins paid a Lenoir County doctor, whose name was given as Dr. Max well, of near Seven Springs, to per form the operation. It Is understood that marriage of the two wss considered, but the plan flopped when Hopkins is said to have offered no more than his name in the deal, refusing to pledge his support of the girl. It is also understood that Hopkins advanced the marriage prop osition upon the condition that charges now pending against him be dropped, but that was not accepted. Since the case, regrettable as it is, reached the courts, the Dr. Maxwell, said to have figured in the illegal pro cedure, died of old age at his home in Lenoir County.

LOCAL FIRM GETS SII,OOO JUDGMENT Big Suit Settled In Federal Court at Washington This Week A $11,559 judgment was granted the J. K. Terry Company against Hyde County, by the Federal court in spec ial session at Waahington this week. The suit was for the recovery of commission due the' bond company for the sale of $275,000 Hyde county bonds a few years ago. The county bad of fered the bond for sale, but could not find a buyer at above par for the 5 1-2 per cent bonds. Mr. Julius S. Peel contracted with the county, guarantee ing it a premium of $5,000 or to take 60 per cent of all above par for his service. The contract was duly re corded in the minutes of the board of commissioners for that county. The bonds were sold and brought a prem ium of $19,265. Soon after the sale was effected, a new board of commis sioners went into office and refused to carry out the contract mad* by the previous board. The action of the first body was repudiated, the county, it ia said, having been encouraged ia the act by a bond broker who had at tempted to buy the bonds at par. In the hearing, Judge I, M. Meekins instructed the members, of the jury that if they believed the records they should return a verdict against the county for 60 per cent of the amount of the premium, or $11,559 with in terest. Attorney Elbert S. Peel represent ed the Eastern Bond and Mortgage Company and Mr. J. S. PeeL THE ENTERPRISE Junior 4-H Short Course In Raleigh Next Week The junior 4-H short course will be held in Raleigh next week. All girls in attendance are required to have a uniform made of green victrix, a North Carolina product manufactured by the Entwistle Manufacturing Company, of Rockingham. The material costs 10 cents per yard. A few girls are busy making dresses to wear to Raleigh this year. The home agent will carry the girl* to Raleigh Monday afternoon. MARKETING OF TOMATOES GOES ALONG SLOWLY Jamesville Farmers Have Shipped Around 4,000 Bushels So Far —- The marketing of tomatoes in the Jamesville section of the county is progressing very slowly at this time, Professor W. T. Overby, agricultural teacher in the school there, said last Wednesday. Up until the middle of this week, the farmers of that section had shipped around 4,000 bushels of tomatoes. The shipments hsve been made in comparatively small lots as the maturity of the crop has been greatly retarded. A few farmers con tinue to deliver there, but many have abandoned the work as the crop was so badly damaged by dry weather that they found it unprofitable, to Rather and market the tomatoes. The quality of many of the deliver ies now being made is unusually poor, returning little cash to the grower and virtually no profit. The market has shown a little added strength dur ing the past few days probably as a result of dry weather, but even then the prices are not high, the farmers receiving around 60 cents for about one-half of one bushel of No. 1 grade and around 37 cents for the same a mount of the No. 2 grade. The prices are gross, netting the farmer just a bout half that much or probably a lit tle over. Some farmers are plowing up their vines, and for them the season has been a complete failure. Reporting on the general crop con ditions in the Jamesville stcion,. Pro fessor Overby stated that they were "mighty bad". While peanuts are at a standstill, they have the best chance of any crop there, he said. Tobacco is homing up and corn is dying in all parts of the section. Mr. Overby was of the opinion that noUtmofe than 25 per cent of a normal crop of corn would be harvested there this fall, the drought having limited the yield that much. Young corn has a chance, he stated, but the old is just about gone to ruin. ,f>* 200 GATHER TO PRAY FOR RAIN To Meet Again Next Week Whether Rain Falls Before That Time Meeting in the Farm Life school building last Wednesday afternoon nearly 200 citizens of Jamesville, Wil liams, and Griffins Township prayed a second time for rain, and that night rain fell again in other sections, but none wet the ground there. Young and old attended the service, which was marked for its seriousness of pur pose and the sincerity of those taking part. Wether rain falls between now and next Wednesday or not, a third service will be held there, ReV. W. B. Har rington said yesterday. Large crowds are attending the meetings, and many are expected to add their prayers to others next Wednesday. "It ia drier than I have ever seen it in my life in our section,' the Griffins Township parson said yesterday morn ing, adding that conditions were very serious with the fanners there.

Mrs. York lost control of the car when she started to pass another machine. It turned over three times, throwing Catherine, 7 years old, and her mother | out on the first turn. Bernard, 5 years (old, held to his seat and was not as badly cut as were the other two. The little giH fell in the path of the car, but on its second somersault, the ma chine missed her in some unexplain able way. The car was running at a moderate speed, Mrs. York, the driver, not knowing just how fast they were trav eling when the accident happened.

Bear Grass Defeats Lilley's Hall in Game Yesterday Yesterday on the local diamond, while Williamston's nine, winners of the first half play in the Albemarle League, were away from home, Bear Grass played Liltey'i Hall in a rubber game, the result of which was about ! 20 to 6 in favor of Bear Grass.

Peaks ted Lilley's Hall with the willow, while Stalls, for rpßear Grass, kit Lilley's Hall down with hits and secured 5 hits for himself. While the opening date is ear liar than haa been the case hereto fore, it was explained by authori tiea that the schools could com plete the first half of the term be fore Chriatmas by starting early.

REPORT GARDEN WORK AMONG NEGRO FARMERS 450 Per Cent Return Made On SIOO Appropriation By County Board Back in the early spring, the Martin County Board of Commissioners ap propriated SIOO for the promotion of garden work among negro farmers of the county during a period of 10 weeks in cooperation with the State Exten sion Service. Oliver Carter, former colored dem onstration agent for this county, was employed, and, according to Mr. C. R. Hudson, State Supervisor, who kept in personal touch with the work in this county, it is safe to assume that at least 100 new gardens were established in the county that would not have been except through the work of the agent. Mr. Hudson figures that the SIOO in vested last spring by the commission ers has returned a profit of $4,000. The recorders of tfie agent, with ac tual figures and careful estimates, show as follows: Number of demonstration gardens, 127; average size of gardens, 1-3 acres; Average number of vegetables per gar den, 10 1-2; number of kinds of vege tables grown, 30; percentage of gar dens rated as excellent, 21 percentage of- gardens rated as medium, 60; per centage of gardens rated as poor, 19; average cost of seed and fertilizers per garden, $4.75; average labor cost per garden, $4.25; total cost per garden, $?; estimated value of vegetables per garden, SSO; average profit per garden, s4l; average profit per acre, $120; re turns on investment, 450 per cent. It is estimated that there are at least 1,500 gardens cultivated by colored farmers in the county. The demon stration gardens located as they are, with 3 to 6 in each community, serve a good purpose in influencing better gardens over the whole county. In addition the activities of the agent traveling the county, holding meetings and personal conferences have no doubt reached and influenced benefic ially practically these I|soo farm fam ilies and all of this has come about from the SIOO invested in the work by the county commissioners. Colored Women Go to Law Over Wearing of Pajamas Fannie Purvis, Colored, appealed to the courts for relief this week when Lillie Bryant, also colored, laughed and made light of the pajamas worn on the streets in the neighborhood by her daughter, "Babe" Purvis. The remark, "Now don't you feet big, wearing dem 'genitalis'," made by the Bryant woman is said to have so provoked, annoyed, humiliated and ag gravated the sporting blood of Fannie jthat she ran to Justice of the Peace J. |L. Hasscll's court asking it to protect the atylish parades of her daughter. No warrant has been issued in the case, but the complaint is on file and "gertnans" may be exhibited in the court most any ole day now. Highly Respected Colored Woman Dies Near Here Louvenia Slade,. highly, respected colored woman, died at her home in Sandy Point, near here last Wednes day. She had been in feeble health for some time, the infirmities of old age causing her death. Reared by the late Mrs. Pennie Slade, the faithful old woman was looked upon »• one of the best among her race in this lection. « trucks will be in readiness for the various runs at that time, and aft ei considering other favorable fea tures to the early opening, the date was agreed upon by the authoritiea. Virtually all the faculties for the various schools in the county have been selected, only one or two va cancies existing here and there throughout the county system, it was lesrned yesterday. All vacan cies in the faculty here have been filled but one, and it is understood that applications for thst position are I being received daily. BELIEVES CROP TOBACCO WILL BRING 15 CENTS Predict Crop Will Be Less Than 325,000,000 Pounds In the Bright Belt An average price of IS cents a pound for the 1932 tobacco crop was predict ed by Mr. \V. T. Meadows, veteran tobacconist, thjs week. Recently Mr. Meadows was quoted as saying that an average price of: 10 cents a pound could be expected.,JaiiJthat figure was advanced by others, Mr. Meadows making clear his prediction, as follows: "In my last article in your paper, the comments of your reported quoted me as saying that this crop would av erage around 10 cents. In talking to him, I said fliat the majority of the best posted men in the tobacco busi ness thought it would average from 10 to 15 cents. My personal opinion is that it will be nearer 15 than 10 cents. Some of our best friends say it ought to average 30 cents. I agree with them, but and but again there is a wheel within a wheel and probably you can't knock out all the spokes unless you are on the inside. "The latest figures from the outside and which are likely to be reduced are as follows: Bright States, North Caro lina, 250 million pounds; South Caro line, 30 million pounds;- Georgia, 15 million pounds and Virginia, 30 mil lion pounds. This gives 325 million pounds out of this crop. The foreign countries or export trade take annual ly around 400 million pounds; so where will the domestic trade come in? Figure for yourselves."
