, Due to the torrential rain
storm that visited this section
last Monday night many fields of
tobacco that were looking so
promising a few days ago have
been almost entirely lost by
scalding. Many gardens show the
same affect. Corn, peanuts and
potatoes are not injured so much.
Dr. W. Ross Davis, who has
had his dental shop located here

While working for the Waccamaw

week, Mr. O. D. Pruitt had the
misfortune to get one of his
hands badly mashed.
Mr. C. C. Gore, of Awensdaw,
S. C., is spending sometime here
with her mother, Mrs. Rosa Ve-j
A group of local boys decided
a few days ago that it must be
a little unfair for two members
of the Waccamaw school faculty
to marry and nobody make any
signs of merriment over it. So
they planned a trip to Ash for
the purpose of showing Mr. and
Mrs. Z. G. Ray, recently married
couple, that they could make
noise outside the schoolroom as
well as inside. Mr. J. E. Dodsoni
was generous enough to let them i
have his truck to transport t
themselves and implements. As j
the clock struck 12 one night j
last week the signal was given j
and the serenade began. The i
boys say that although one had i
such a weak heart he could not
help, they had plenty of racket j
and lots of fun.
Miss Beulah Edwards of Bolton
is spending sometime with
her cousin, Miss Dossie Edwards.
Miss Ocia Vaie Bennett is vis- i
iting her sister, Mrs. Hardie j
Duncan, near Whiteville.
