of the majority of the crimes now be

K1WAMS CI.PB HOST TO BUSINESS
MEN OF FKANKLINTON
The Louiaburg Klwanls Club en
joyed one of its best meetings of the
year as host to the business men of
Franklinton, Friday evening in the
domestic science room of the Frank
linton Qraded School. In music, food
and speeches everything was carried
out in the most pleasant manner.
The meeting was presided over by
Ai'ther Fleming who fulfilled the po
sition with dignity as well as wit. The
Klwanis orchestra furnished the mus
ic in conjunction with Mrs. Cooke and
Miss Cower of Franklinton.
The table was in the form of the let
ter "K" the emblem of the Club, and
the meal was delightfully served by
the Domestic science class of the
school.
The program carried out, other than
musical numbers, included in a speech
by James Massenburg on the funda
mental principles of the club and
what the club stood for. He empha
sised the words "We Build." The
building of the community, the coop
erative spirit which all members
should hare relative to town and
county affairs, building of character
and other feature of building. Mayor
Joyner of Franklinton made a short
talk. He was followed by Mr. Buch
anan who explained the activities of
the excellent work shop in the hand
scme school building which was dona
ted to the boys and girls of Franklin
ton by Mr. Sam Vann?It, In itself
Illustrated a factor in Klwanis as it Is
an institution "To Build." The real
talk of the club was made by Hoy
Taylor who illustrated that such a
meeting was a beginning of closer
| contact between the business and pro
fessional men of the two towns; that
when such meetings bring to
gether men they would not be suspic
ious of one another and that each
I would realize that the best for build
ing can be obtained by all working
'together and knowing oue another
better. Ben Ballard talked for a few
minutes on how glad he was that we
were over in his town, and that he
surely was disappointed in the meet
ing since he thought the Loulsburg
men wanted to put over some propo
sition. In his usual good nature he
stated that he and the other men of
Franklinton were exceedingly happy
to have us over.
A1 Vann talked straight from the
shoulder about cotton mills and said
that the best way to succeed in busi
ness was to have a definite thing to
do in the respective business and do
that thing well.
All In all the sixty men and three
young ladies enjoyed themselves to
the fullest extent. There can be no
doubt that if many such meetings
should be held the business men of
these two towns would learn to know
and understand one another better
and pull together for their respective
towns and for the county. That is the
spirit of Klwanls. One for all and all
for one?To Build. The club is in
debted to the domestic science class
of Franklinton for the fine luncheon
and all were in for "congratulations
relative to their service.

MBS. IDA S. PEABCE DEAD
Mrs. Ida S. Pearce died at the home
of her son, Mr. R. A. Pearce, near
town, on Friday morning at 8:15
o'clock after a short illness.
Mrs. Pearce was 76 years of age and
leaves two sons, Messrs. R. A. Pearce
and D. G. Pearce, both of near Louis
burg, and one daughter, Mrs.' John A.
Tucker, of Klnston, all of whom were
present when the end came. She is
also survived by one sister, Mrs. T.
A. Sills, of Nashville, and two broth
ers, Mr. Scott Thompson, of Nashville,
and Dr. Baird Thompson, of Florida.
The deceased was the widow of the
late J. J. Pearce, and before her mar
riage was Miss Ida Outlaw and was a
grand daughter of Governor David
Stone. She had a large family con
nection and leaves many relatives
and friends who extend a deep sym
pathy to the bereaved.
She was a faithful and consistent
member of the Methodist church of
Loulsburg and always rejoiced in the
service of Christ. Her life was such
that made for her a noble character,
a friend to all and one loved by all
who knew her.
"God touched her with His finger,
and she slept" wrote the poet. So
may it be said of this grand woman?
"God touched her with His flngeV and
she slept," but not until a beautiful
life was lived, a noble example of pa
tience, fidelity to truth and faith were
given. Not until visions of a heaven
ly life, had cheered and illumined the
valley of the shadow. And now that
she sleeps, memory takes up the harp
of life, and smiting the strings, finds
that her virtues melt Into music. So
it ever is, when a life Is nobly and
divinely lived.
The funeral was held from the home
of her son near town, on Saturday
morning and was conducted by Rev.
,0. W. Dowd and was largely attend
ed. The interment was made at Oak
lawn cemetery. The pall bearers,
were as follows: Active?Dr. J. O.

M. Perry. N. B. Tucker. M. 8. Clifton.
The floral tribute was profuse and
beautiful, speaking a silent message
ot love and esteem.

TOBACCO CO-OPS
OFF TO RALEIGH I
Annual Meeting On May It To Hear |
Members from A11 Bel s In Three |
States
(S. D. Frissell)
Headquarters of the Tobacco Grow
ers Cooperative Association at Ral
eigh promises to be the Mecca for
members of the Association trom three
states next Tuesday, May 19, when
the annual meeting of the Association
will be held in Pullen Hall at the
North.Carolina State College.
Lively Interest has developed among
the tobacco farmers of Virginia and
Scuth Carolina in this annual meet
ing of the Tobacco Cooperative ow
ing to the fact that the directors have
urged attendance from every state and
it possible from every county of the
three states in which it operates.
The policy of wide-open publicity
whit h the Tobacco Association has
adopted since inviting and publishing
the report of public officials from
three states on its affairs and policies
wlR be the feature of the annual meet
ing next week, at that time a full
report by Richard R. Patterson, Man
ager of the Association is to be fol
lowed by a frank discussion from
members representing ever y tobacco
belt in the Carollnas and Virginia, as
to the plans and policies for the sea
son of 1925-1926.
It is expected that next week's
meeting will be the largest gathering
ol tobacco planters who have ever
met together as representatives of the
tobacco belts of the three states.. It
will unquestionably have much influ
ence in shaping the policies of the
new board whose election will be
confirmed at this meeting by the
members.
This will be the first time in the
history of tobacco growing when farm
ers from the swamps of the Pee Dee
in South Carolina and mountaineers
from the dark fired tobacco district
of Virginia meet face to face with
North Carolina growers, in large num
bers to draw up plans for their mu
tual benefit.
It is known that members of dele
gations from Virginia and South Caro
lina are already being formed to at
tend Tuesday's meeting at State Col
lege. and as a majority of the To
bacco Co-ops live within less than a
hundred miles of -Raleigh there is
every reason to expect a record break
ing annual meeting as the association
I starts its fourth year of operation.
