CONDITION OF CROPS
MUCH IMPROVEMENT GENERAL
Tobacco Crops Have Come Out Won
derfully -Corn Is Generally Fine,
With a Largely Increased Acreage.
Farmers Can Now Plow For
A most wonderful improve
ment has taken place in crop
conditions during the last few
days, as a result of the copious
showers of rain with which
every section of the county is
being blessed. The most re
markable come-out is noticeable
in the tobacco crop\ Late to
bacco, which many people be
lieved would hardly be worth
the saving, is growing with
leaps and bounds, and will ripen
in good time before the frosts.
Forward tobacco is looking
splendid, and cuttirg and cur
ing will be in ord: >- now within
a few days, .viany farmers
have already cured primings,
and report the color good. Mr.
Hayes Duggins, of Danbury,
finished a barn of primings this
week, and says it is a beauty.
The corn crop is excellent,
with a greatly increased
acreage over last year. Much
land intended for tobacco was
planted to corn, on account of
drouth conditions, and the con
sequence will be far and away
the biggest crop of corn ever.
The rains are making it fast.
If the farmers, whether on
: account of a short crop of tobac
co, or from other causes, may
realize high prices for their
: tobacco, say an increase of 23
•percent., then taking into con
; sideration the facts of a bia: corn
! crop, and general economy set.
in practice by the drouth, they
will be as a rule in better condi
tion than they were last year.
After these rains are over,
lands may be broken for the
fall grain sowing. The acreage
in wheat this fall probably will
be, and should be, larger than
ever before. But for the
splendid wheat crop this sum
mer, the farmers would have
certainly been seriously hurt.
A full grain yield for both
man and beast saved the coun

TOLL ROAD WILL PAY
GOOD INVESTMENT SU P E
The Summer Visitors Alone Would !
Pay the Interest On the Money j
—The Traffic Of All Kinds Would
Create a Handsome Surplus.
There is no question in the
minds-of conservative business
men that the proposed toll road
from Walnut Cove to Danbury
and the Buck Island bridge
would be a paying investment.
Let the capital be, say, $50,000.
The interest on this sum would
be $3,000 per year. Figuring a
fee of 25 cents to 50 cents per
head each way, the summer
visitors alone would pay the in
terest. This season about 1,500
guests have made the round trip
from Walnut Cove to Piedmont,
• even over the bad roads, paying
from $2.00 to $4.00 cash for the
i transportation, not counting
i what they paid for trunks, va
lises and other baggage. It
could quite safely be estimated
that with a fine modern turnpike,
i the number of visitors would be
trebled or quadrupled. This
is taking into consideration only
[ Piedmont. With the building of
i the road, all of the Moore's'
i Springs visitors would come this |
! way, also. Then when it is cal
. culated that a largely stimulated
• traffic of both passengers and
freight would travel the in 1
| every month of the year, the to

. i the fertilizers and other supplies
• come in over it, the mail use it,

Dear Editor :
Last week I make a little trip
to Pinnacle and vicinity, and
while up there I went down to
visit my old friends, Riley Fulk
and Mr. G. W. Barr, who live
on Spring Valley Farm, lying,
on little Yadkin River. Mr.
Barr has been blind for twenty
five years or more. He lost his
eye sight fighting fire. He is
now in his 84th year and is hale
and hearty. He takes life very
quietly and looks on the bright
Mr. Fulk carried me over his
farm of 400 acres and I saw
some very fine corn on his 1 well
cultivated bottoms. He and his
sons and tenants have between
30 and 40 acres of fine tobacco
on the up-lands, though a hail
storm passed over that section
on the 12th of August and dam

are looking well for the season

TOBACCO WILL SELL HIGH
The Crop Is Going to Bring Good
Prices This Fall —This Is a Fore
It is given up by nearly every
body now that tobacco is bound
to bring a good pries this year.
The indications all point that
way. The Reporter copies the
following items from this week's
isse of the Reidsville Review,
as bearing on the subject:
Mr. W. T. Barber, who has
been buying tobacco for the Im
perial Tobacco Company at Lake
I City, S. C., returned home Satur
day and will go to Smithfield this
week where he will be stationed
for the next two or three months.
Mr. Barber says the crop in
South Carolina is short this year
and already three-fourths of it
has been marketed. He says the
weed is selling very high, averag
ing around fifteen cents.
Our countvman, Mr. Henry W.
McGehee, who runs a warehouse
at Nichols, S. C., has been mak
ing some record-breaking sales
this season. One day recently
he sold over 25,000 pounds at an
average above $19.00. On another
' day he sold 45,000 pounds at
' average of $16.50. The tobacco
was nearly all "in the rough"
—ungraded stripped leaves.
These are good prices and show
that tobacco is in good demand
and will doubtless sell at satis
factory prices all this season.
