With a great many women on

posed that fewer men than usual

error, as more men than usual

man of the board of county com-1

watermelon out of his first that1

fine ones and we hope his prom
ises are just as good. The rea
son that he is arranging this
early to dispose of one of the
best is that a few weeks ago
we ad something in this column
about the fine tobacco plants he
grew this year. Everybody grew
enough plants this year, and there
has not been any sales of sur
plus plants. But farmer Bellamy,
just because somebody read and
believed what we said about his
fine plants, has gone anil sold
all he did not need for his own
use. When we told him we should
have a commission for helping to
sell those plants, he' said he would
give us a big watermelon instead
of dividing the moola.

one to look after it until August,

where he will be with his bro
ther until August. He will re
turn then. His address is Alli

the fact that he will only be
away three months, he told us
that he could not do without the
paper for that long.
Mrs. William G. Scola of 27
Kinnlcutt Road, Worchester,
Mass., was presented with a
year's subscription to The Pilot
this week by Mrs. Bellamy, Mrs.
Hawes and Mrs. Sanderson. Mrs.
Scola, as Miss Marie Holden, was
one of the girls in the REA of
fice at Shallotte. She was mar
ried some months ago and this
week when we walked into her
old office her former coworkers
immediately announced that they
wanted to send the paper to
Marie as a present.

stopped us the other day and
each said he wanted to subscribe
