Farmers Of County

Through Pool Than From
Farmers in Haywood county have
recently received checks from the
United States Growers Association, of
Baltimore, Md.. completing payment
on their 1932 wool. This wool was
pooled at Waynesville the last week
The settlement is made up of an
equalization on the advance of one
half cent per pound on all wool, 1
cent additional on burry and other
low grades, 2 cents on clothing wool,
end ,'i.l5 cents on combing wool,
The original advance was lk cents
on the wool. At that time the Ashe
vijle price was 8 cents per pound, and

H'.iv.vood County! It's a proven
Last Saturday about noon a modern
Pied Piper rolled into Waynesville in
a tine looking Packard, but not for
the purpose of getting rid of rats, as
the Piper of old. His intention was
to rid the people of their money, and
with the help and geneinsity of about
fi citizens from a crowd of 200 he
made good his intentions to the extent
of about !M"0 clear profit for about
.'1 hours of the fastest and slickest
talk heard here since the election, or
This modern Piper proved himself
to be a fool to begin with, according
to the opinions of some, but before he
left town that opinion was visa versa.
At a few .minutes past, noon Satur
day, this young man in his Packard
drove into the vacant lot between the
Fi.ist NatMiial Hank and the fax:
Stand, and thereon the back of his
car he stood blowing an old trumpet
until he had a fair size crowd then he
said lie wa going to "throw a lit" fo1'
the lirsl time in four days. Fits we!c
thrown later, not by him but by.
several v( his best customers.
He MM hi ail'.!:e:i'e-1!:.:. '- :d n'
medicine nf :mj kind to sell, as he
catered to other brands of mer,han
lis'e, lie pulled several simple card
tricks and then called a small boy from
the crowd to assist hi in in' changing
tliiec one .dollar., bills into a ten spot.
The' local lad with a red handkerchief
tied about' Ills' forehead stood there
holding the thiee one dollar bills (lur
ing the ,-!il;"e performance, hut the
ii.rk ;!s iicvi ' performed.
As'-the-.crowd-. gathered faster and
la ter the nian began to throw away
.key rings, shaving soap and safety :
r,i.,rs. Of ( ourso, there was a wild
. .i:i:ii!o for 'these, Hut the crowd
,vas wondering how he could throw -av.ay
hi - wares. . That wasn't worry-,
ing the .salesman near as tiiuch as the
crowd. He knew where his bread and
nutter was coming . from.
At. this point the crowd was crowd
ing and jam ing into the lot to hear
the slickest-lounged salesman that
ever faced a crowd here, tie told his
audience ho was the "king of sales
men" and would prove it to them.
Whereupon, he reached, into his pocket
and pulled out a dollar bill and offered
it. for sale for fit) cents. It wsis .quick
ly bought. He in turn sold the oO
cent piece, for 25' cents. The 2." cent
piece . was sold for a dime and the
dime .sold for a penny. He took his
penny and showed the crowd he had
made live sales in less than tiVe min
utes and hail lost only DS) cents. He
then threw the penny -into the crowd.
Then he produced some bill folders
anil pocket books which he claimed
were worth $1.50 but he sold' them
for 2o cents. He offered a lew for
: ale '.and in each instance he gave the
money back to the purchaser with the
hill folder, sU'Ung, that he apjireciated
their early business, and jn one ins
tance he refused to make change and
gave the buyer back his iuoney and
also the pocketbook.
This method of salesmanship look
with many in the1 crowd and some
took it to be : a freak advertising
scheme and were ready to bite at any
offering he might make from then oh..:..
And well did the Modern Pied Piper
realize that buyers were plentiful in
his audience so he turned the tables
and began to get back something for,
what he had given away. -
Ho then offered a small .empty box
for one dollar. -He told them they,
were -empty' and not worth two Cents,

thought they knew more than he about
the boxo' and proceeded to buy .'ir of- '
the empty pasteboards while -ope 'man
paid a dollar for just t he lid; ; The
salesman, asked the buyers if they
were satisfied with their purchase: ami
every one agreed that he wits, although
they, were expecting, a refund .op
something later. He told them to kiss
