Boyd is, perhaps, the heaviest plunger in tobacco on Jonathan's Creek this season, probably the heavi est in Haywood County. He has ten acres of tobacco and most of it, at this writing promises a bumper crop. Mr. J Boyd's chief hope just now, is for a few weeks more of weather favorable to the maturity and harvesting of the crop. Fine Flock ol White Leghorns. Rev. K. K.

So common has become this Nation al Guard encampment that we are liable to overlook the significance of such an event. It has a tremendous effect upon the life of the state be cause it g-ives men from all parts of North Carolina a chance to mingle and to know each other. A man who lives in Haywood county will aonreci- ate his state a good deal more after he has talked with a man from Robe son or Wake.
