Private Walter I. Jones, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Henry Jones, of Franklin
ville, enlisted in the army when sev
enteen years old. He went overseas
with General Pershing with the first
American army. July 21, 1918 he
was wounded while on guard duty.
His father was officially notified that
he was seriously wounded and he had
been unable to hear any thing from
him, until recently he heard that he
was in a hospital in this country, get
ting along all right. There has been
much anxiety as to his whereabouts.
DAIRY CATTLE DEVELOPMENT
The most progressive step ever tak
en by the farmers of Randolph county
in the way of permanent improvement
of dairy cattle has been succeesfully
put on foot by the county agent, D. S.
The farmers of this county have
be?n greatly hindered in dairy devel
opment due to the fact that so many
different breeds were represented and
consequently so. greatly crossed up
iaiat the result has been and is yet
a rather poor grade of dairy cows as
a whole, To rejtiedy this situation a
campaign has been made to find out
what breed of dairy cattle they pre
ferred. Five progressive communities
decided to adopt the Holstein breed
and have organized the Randolph
County Holstein Breeders' Associa
tion. -'This .Association is a" Clan Hi
which" ach" community has the use of
a' pure-bred Holstein sire for two years
and at that time a change of sires is
made by all of the blocks, thereby
where there are five blocks as there
are in this county each community or
block is provided with a pure-bred sire
for a period of ten years with a new
one in each community or block each
two years. Together with this Mr.
Coltrane and the farmers are arrang
ing as fast as possible to bring in a
car load of registered heifers.
The fact that the farmers are ar
ranging to keep the same breed of
cattle is a long step toward successful
development of dairy cattle. This
means that the fanners can have good
breeding stock at a reasonable cost to
each man since only one breed is rep
resented and the same amount of
money formerly invested in two or
three sires of various breeds is all put
The committees forming this as so
ciation are Farmer, Red Cross, Holly
Springs, Bethel and Davis Mountain.
The directors leld their first meeting
and completed organization in Ashe
boro last Satosday.
Mr. Coltrane is in this doing com
munities a valuable serrice.

Mr. A. C Kimrey of theviairy field
office is in th' county this week for
the purpose of helping complete the
(JTangementa for the Holstein breed
ers association. The association is
.now an assured thing as Farmer and
Red Cross blocks nave been formed and
constitution adopted. The remainder
of the week they will complete the or-
fanization of Davis Mountain, Holly
prings and Bethel blocks.
Frankllnville farmers have Joat re
'ceived a car load of lime which they
bought co-operatively. .
Davis Mountain farmers are now un
loading a car load of . lima, There
should be more lime used. . We can
never grow clover and , grasses on
much of this Randolph soil until we
apply lima, .
About the first lime spreader to
come to Asheboro was received by A.

community who use lime should own
one of these machines co-operatively.
Soy beans art much cheaper this

Col. James T. Morehead, one of
Greensboro's oldest and best known
lawyers, passed away suddenly last
Friday night at hs home alter a short
illness with pneumonia. He had been
in feeble health for some time past
but was able to be out until the morn
ing before when he was forced to re
main at home on account of a cold he
had contracted which quirkly develop
ed into pneumonia.
Colonel Morehead was 82 years of
age. The only surviving relatives are
nephews and nieces: James lurner
Morehead of Greensboro; George ii.

May 28, 1838, being the son pf James

Throughout the war between the states
he served with distinction, being pro
