Oak Grove, Oct- 13.—The : public schools of Yadkin town | ship opened Monday, 13th, and the compulsory school law brought out many children that ought to have been out years 'ago. A lot of the people are j growling at the teachers and say they arc not competent. You , cannot expect first class teachers j with out a first class price. I' the county commissioners would I put out assessors who would j value the property higher we l would have more money, better schools and goad roads. When ' a man prices his mule to you at he gives it in at from SSO to !?75, his land from §25 to S2OO per acre and is mad | because it i 3 valued at $7 an acre. Let,s get out of this ; old rut and make t*m the garden ■ spot of the world. The farmers of this section :are about through cutting and | curing tobacco with the excep- J tion of Mr. C. H. Lunsford. Mr. Lunsford has taken cafe of I seventy-two barns and has several more in the field. The high priced tobacco is causing the farmers to neglect their wheat crops. They are strip ping and hauling day and night. We know of some farmers that are not going to sow any wheat. They v say that they can make more stripping and selling their tobacco and buy flour, which we think is a great mistake. Try jto make an all around crop from the garden up. The farmers are beginning to gather their corn and they find i a lot of it damaged. We think lit was caused by the wet weather. SCRIBBLED. Special Session Legis lature tad Monday Sight.
