—The farmers this fine weather
are bending their energies toward
seeding the largest wheat crop ever
planted. One dealer told the writer
that he could not get fertilizer fast
enough for the farmers —that he had
never seen so great a demand. If
you go to the country you will see
men and teams busy plowing and
seeding. Some are inclined to think
it is already a little late for seeding
wheat, but you can find plenty of
farmers who will tell you that in
many instances they have known
wheat sowed the latter part of De
cember that made just as good wheat,
sometimes better, as that sown weeks
earlier. To be sure it is a greater
risk to sow late, but the certain de
mand for wheat to bread the waning
nations and our own people next
year more than warrants the risk one
takes by late sowing.

Colored People Held Community Fair
At Woops Chapel Last Saturday.
Reported tor The Gleaner.
In obedience to the exhortation
"of our Honorable Governor,'when
he made the proclamation that
every available potp should be
planted that we might have foia
enough tor oar soldiers in the
trenches who are protecting our
flag, which has-undergone so many
insults from Germany, the colored
citizens of Albright township, un
der the leadership ot A. J. Corde,
our pastor, who called his oificUf
board together and placed the nut
ter before them of having a Com
munity Pair and giving some prizes
for public demonstrations. Many
opposers were found in the town
of Graham, but with the co-opera
tion of the white citizens we went
forward, aided by such men as Mr.
A. L. Baker, Capt. Jas. N. William
son, Sheriff C. D. Story, Register of
Deeds B. M. Rogers, Mayor Heenan
Hughes* of Graham, ex-Bheriff R.
N. Cook, Mr. P. S. Dixon Mr. Z. T.
Hadley, and others..
November 3rd, was the time ap
pointed for the Community Pair at
Woods Chapel, A. M. E. Church;
The farmers met at the said place
and held their second meeting with
the colored Pood Demonstrator for
Alamance county After the asso.-
clation adjourned every one went
to see the exhibits and hear the
orator of the day, Mr. M. C. Ter
rell, Supt. of Schools for Alamance
County. He was introduced by
Prof. Gunn, Principal of Burling
ton Colored Graded School. He
made the speech of his life. If
spared he will be a blessing to hi*
race. The colored people are much
pleased with him.
The committee on awards con
sisted of Mrs. Essie Holmes, Mrs.
Euna Crosen, Mrs. Bessie Holt, Mrs.
Carrie Holt, Miss Maggie Belle
Rogers with colored Supervisor,
Mrs .Vinson. It was ty>und the
community have canned over 3,000
cans of different fruits and vege
tables. Prizes were awarded to
those who had canned the largest
number of cans, as follows:
Mrs. Mary Wood, 301 cans, rock
ing chair; Mrs. W. L. Keck, 279
cans, center table; Mrs Mariah
Holt, 269 can% bowl and pitcher;
Mrs. Virgil Holmeß, 230 cans,, water
Too much praise cannot be £iv
en Mr. A. L. Baker for the interest
he took in the community. Woods
Chapel is going to be made a great
sjiial and educational center for
the colored people and no doudt
a little city will spring up. It
needs an industrial school to teach
the young men and women to
work. It is hoped the day will
come when this will be a reality,
all for the cause of humanity.
