deaths of two more.

ASKS HELP
Mrs. Mary M. Sloop, manager of
Crossnore School at Crossnore,
asks for help from all who will
contribute toward paying off a bill
for groceries used during the last
term. The bill is now in excess of
SIBOO.OO and any amount given will
be greatly appreciated- Send di
rect to Mrs. Sloop. Crossnore school
is devoted to helping those who
otherwise might not be able to se
cure an education and all pupils
do everything possible in the way
of self-help, but are unable to meet
their own expenses in full.
EVER NOMAL GRANARY
Among the ideas offered as a
solution of price changes and food
supplies is that of an “ever normal
granary” which in some respects
is a repetition of practices put in
to effect by Joseph under Pharaoh
in Egypt some thousands of years
ago. Surplus grain would be stored
in years of plenty for marketing
during the lean years, serving to
hold up prices when crops are abun
dant and to keep down costs when
grain is scarce outside the grana
ries. Crop control would probably
be a feature of the plan if and
when it is tried.

MISS MART
THOUGHT SAFE
Amelia Earhart, world-famous
aviatrix, who recently began her
most ambitious project in flying,
was lost on last Friday when her
plane was forced down somewhere
in the Pacific Ocean along the
equator by lack of gasoline. Storms
had caused the use of more than
had been expected She was plan
ning to land on Howland Island,
but failed to reach it. Messages
were received which were thought
to prove that she was on land, as
her husband said the plane radio
could not be used on water. No
messages have ben received for
some time now. George Putnam,
husband of the aviatiix, and Mrs.
Noonan, wife of the navigator who
went with Mis# Earhart, are natur
ally in great suspense, though they
profess to believe that both will be
rescued. The U. S. government has
sent ships and planes to aid in the

AND MRS P. F. MASSEY RUN
CLOSE SECOND & THIRD
Below we give the winners and
list of prizes ofered in our Adver
tising Contest campaign. A great
many letters came in. so many that
it took the judges hours to read
them. So many of them were of
merit, that it was a hard matter
for the judges to decide the win
ners. In one instance the decision
was a tie. It was found that one
of the letters exceeded considera
bly the allowed 100 words, s<o it was
necessary to throw it out. A lot
of publicity was stimulated by the
campaign which we believe will
help the business concerns taking
part. We hope our readers will read
all the letters. Then visit the plac
es of business mentioned and see
for yourself the courteous service,
large stocks and low prices offered
that our contestants found and ap
preciate.

LOCAL RAIN IS
TOOPLENTIFUL
A succession of showers varied
occasionally by a hard rain have
wet the ground thoroughly in this
section and crops are thriving. So
far no hail has come damage
anything in this immediate vicini
ty. However, it will be some weeks
yet before the tobacco will be ready
for the barns and one day may
bring untold loss to farmers when
hail strikes, so they will probably
be on the “anxious seat” until the
weed is safely housed. Wise farm
ers are carrying hail insurance.
The early date set for warehouse
opening will mean a rush to grade
the leaves as soon as they are cur
ed.
Lost sleep can usually be regain
ed. Lost time ia a waste that can
never be regained.
