The influence ef thee# operations

are coming Into this part of the State
from various placet, an in the gt

southern Harnett settlers are dotting
tbe forests with theft farms. This
advancement is not. confined to any
one section of the county, either,

of the county schools. In speaking of1

Dr. J. W. Halford, who ha* been

years ago the wise men who erected

a fact that North Caro line has been

of when education has boon the sub

A Bit af Fatima.
There is a bitof pathos on the roed'
that leads down into Harnett from
Leo county. Not many miles out
frem Islington stands a substantial
bnck bsUding, and about K are here
and there other structures, some
right pretentious, some the worn* for

town gone to seed ad, trying to re

Du m has corns down Into the cotton
counimt s story of prosperity dur
ing the dull dsy* after the war broke
out last fall in Europe. Folks in th*
cotton belt have heard from tiro* to
tin* of th* farmers up in th* Dunn
region with rolls of currency stick
ing out of their boot tops, and sheafs
of tobacco tainted money saltod down
in hogsheads until their prosperity is
scandalous. Of course this may be
exaggerated, but to th* folks in the
Slough of Despond last winter any
kind of prosperity looked fa' clous.
Fa*nay • Ure On*.
Then up across the border is Fo

place that cam* out of the woods and
U now saturated with all kinds of
getting on in the world.
A peek at the map shows Fuquay
Springs a cloas neighbor of Harnett
county. The Fuquay tobacco belt
has become as well acquainted aa
bright tobacco. Harnett folks have
observed that the bright tobacco belt
from Fuquay region is pushing out
acroxs the line. Th* farmers who
have been planting tobacco in Wake
ounty have shown that th* type of
soil common in Harnett is aa good aa
any for bright leaf, and Harnett far
Across the rlrar from UUington Is
a modal now farm created from an

down this way a year or to ago from
