THE BENEFIT OF INSURANCE
THE cost of insurance is so small you
do not realize you Have paid it.
After the loss its benefits arc so
great you marvel that anyone

HAMLET PEACH SHOW
Hamlet Chamber Commerce
Wednesday Conducted an
Institute on Peach Growing
T. F. Moffitt, secretary of the
Hamlet Chamber of Commerce,
and Hubert Prosser, all round
enthusiast, did themselves proud
in the Peach Show conducted by
them in Hamlet Wednesday after
noon. .The large hall over the
LeGrand furniture store was fill
ed with interested citizens from
this and other counties. It is
safe to say that these left with a
much greater respect for Rich
mond county as a peach producer
than was the case when they
came. On exhibit were' choice
peaches from a score of farms,
some weighing 15 ounces.
The object of the show was to
the world. Addresses were made
cultural experiment station, and
Charles Dearing, of the U. S.
Depfrof Agriculture; Gus Shillet
er, state horticulturist of South
Carolina; E. W. Stillwell, of the
JJ. S. .bureau of markets; and H.
T. Prosser and L. H. Nelson.
Mayor H. P. Austin made the ad
dress of welcome.
It is estimated that nearly a
thousand acres will be set out
this fall in peach trees in Rich
mond county. Already the east
ern part of the county is alive
with huge orchards, the "Gates"
orchard at Hoffman being one of
kthe finest in the South. Chris
Page is putting out 125 acres
about 7 miles east of Rocking-
ham, and the new company form
ed by Bud McAulay recently ex
pects to put out over 100 acres.
A new day seems to be dawning
in Richmond county ,and do
doubt many an acre will be turn
ed to peaches as a result of this

A report has come to the at
tention o: the Post-Dispatch
that at the Hamlet-Rockingham,
game here last Saturday, an ad
mission charge was made for
Hamlet ladies but ncne for Rock
ingham ladies. That a discrimina
tion was made. Such a report on
the face' of it was too absurd for
anyone to give credence to it for
a moment; but for fear some one
might hear it and believe it, the
Post-Dispatch secured the fol
lowing affidavit from the two
gate-keepers, Messrs. Hector
Little and Earnest Seawell:
"This fs to certify that we kept the
gate and Collected all admissions at
the Hamlet-Rockingham game July
16th, and the followingadmission was
charged, and collected: 50cents from
male adults, and fecsnts from child
ren and ladies. It is absolutely un
true that we charged Hamlet ladies
and let Rockingham ladies in free.
The 25cents charge was the same for
Mill on Short Time.
Pee Dee mill No. 2 last Mon
day reduced its working time
from 55 hours a week to 40
hours. The miU, in other words,
now is working four days a week
instead of 5 and a half.
The mill manufactures a coarse
sheeting called "dril vencedor"
and practically the entire output
is exported to South America.
The export business is shot to
pieces just now, and has been for
quite a while, and as there is no
market for the output the only
thing left was for the mill to cun
tail. It is fortunate that it is
able to run even tour days a
week with the present stagna
tion in export demand, and it is
Uo be earnestly hoped that busi
ness will pick up so that full
time can be started again.
Mrs. Lowe For Trespassing.
Mrs. Will Lowe formerly Mrs.
Quect Privette or Jones) was given
a hearing before the-Hamlet Record
er Monday on the -charge of tres
passing. She suhindtted to the
charge, arid the Recorder suspended
judgment upoa her paying the
costs of $8.00. . She had been to the
chain-gang camp several times vis
iting, and the Superintendent had
ordered her to stay avay. She came
again twd r three weeks ago, and
so a warrant was issued against her
tar trespassing. The Sheriff took
the warrant to her house up on the
river, hut found she was not at
lome; he fcimd her later' in Jtbe day
in Rockingham and served the War
rant then on her. The warrant was
returnable July 18th before the
Hamlet Recorder; she appeared lor
trial Monday as scheduled, and
submitted to the charge, and, aSs
stated, prayer for judgment was sus
pended on payment .of the costs.

The first street being worked
is Leak street, running from the
Methodist church corner to the
Methodist parsonage corner; and
then from the latter corner
down Hamlet Road to the town
limits. After these two streets
have been completed, South
Washington street (erroneously
called New Washington) will be
worked. The tractor is used to
plow the streets, then pulverize
them with a harrow and then
scrape and drag them. North
Washington street was treated
this way about six 'veeks ago,
and a great improvement is now
noted in that street, the holes he

made smooth. It is the intention
to work all the streets of the city
as rapidly as it can be done.
