where wtth beautiful devotion she hadI
done so much to make happy the last
days Of her father add mother, Mr.
8amuel C. Vann and Mrs. Betty Hen*

ment, the marriage was a very simple
home wedding with only the two fami
lies and a very few Intimate friends
The house was beautifully decorat
ed in palms and ferns with, abundance
of lilies, roses hyacinths, lilies of the
valley and other cut flowers. The
wedding room Itself was a dream of
beauty. In the recess of the window
was a mass of green palms and ferns,
against which gleamed the stately
cathedral candles, and bloomed the
great vases ot white flowers.
Music was rendered both before and
after the ceremony by Ray's Orches
tra of Raleigh, while the wedding
march Mendelssohn's was beautifully
played by Miss Delia Dowell ot Wake
Forest with orchestra accompaniment.
Promptly at the appointed hour the
groom ettered with his brother, Mr.
William Rose, of Frankllnton. The
bride's only attendant was her lovely
little niece. Miss Elisabeth Vann Moore
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Moore,
of Rosemary. The little maid of hon
or wore a pale pink georgette trimmed
with rosebuds and carried a colonial
bouquet of vastel flowers. The bride
came In with her brother, Mr. A. H.
Vann, ot FrankUoton, who gave her
away. The full ceremony of the Me
thodlst church was used, and
earnest words of the officiating min
ister, Rev. Dr. N. ft D. Wilson called
forth the simple and reverent respon
ses of the vows and the troth, all
present felt that divine confirmation
had been Indeed added to bless the
highest hopes and purposes ot the
The bride was exquisitely gowned.
She wore tvoty satin, trimmed with
point applique lace and embroidered
with pearls. A court train fell from
her shoulders and her yell ot point

The second meeting of the Agrlcul

community room at the school build

weather prevented a large attendance.
The topic (or discussion at that
meeting was "The place cotton holds
In our system of (arming." We are
hearing and reading a great deal at
the present about cutting our cotton
This might be a wise thing, but in
all probability It would not, unless
there could-be a money crop to take
its place. What we need most of all
la cheaper cotton. If we can produce
the same amount at a cheaper cost the
low prices will not hurt so bad.
Tor the next three weeks I expect
to take up the production of cotton
and the various problems we are hav
ing in making it a paying crop.
On Tuesday night of next week,
January 12, I want to discuss the fer
tilisation of cotton. This Is a problem
