THE FOUR COUNTY NEWSPAPER—WAKE, JOHNSTON, NASH AND FRANKLIN
This, That, and |
MRS. THEO. B. DA YUS
In the western part of this state
» they make w. cuil a moun- j
tain fruit cake. I think its name is
partly due to the fact that up there
appels aie called fruit nad other
fruits are called by name. For it
is quite different from the usual
fruit cake. To make it. you first
make a smooth, very thick, well
sweetened apple sauce and keep it
warm until your cake layers are
ready. Make the layers of molas
.ses cookie dough—not batter. Roll
out the ipeces of dough tien and
*bake them in jelly cake tins, put
ting them together while still hot,
with the apple sauce between at
least as deep as the layers. Let it
stand for some time before serv
ing and when cut it will have a
firm softness that holds it in shape
and yet makes it so yielding that
even the toothless could enjoy it.
Use whipped cream on it, unless
you believe in lettitng well enough
Heer’.- a good recipe for the lay
1 cup butter and laid mixed
3-4 cup sugar
1 cup good molasses
1 teaspoonful each of ginger, cinna
mon, and cloves
1 teaspoonful soda dissolved in 1-2
cup hot water
t Flour to make a stiff dough.
This amount will make layers
for a cake with some left over for
gingersnaps. Because, you see, the
mountain fruit cake could never

Attentive and hopeful, approxi
j mately ten thousand tobacco farm
ers from every section of eastern
North Carolina congregated in
warehouses on the Wiison tobacco
market to witness the opening of
the 1937 season.
As sales got underway promptly
at nine o’clock a hush settled over
the large crowd attending all sales
and only the sing song chant of
the world’s best tobacco auctioneers
coudl be heard, intermingled with
almost noisless scratching and low
murmurings from expert buyers.
After the first few minutes of
selling had passed, giving suf

I Wakelon School will open the
1937-38 term on Wednesday morn
ing, September 8, 8:30 o’clock. We
! hope it will be possible for every
boy and girl in the district to reg

sary in order that we may arrange
our classes and schedule of work to
the best advantage. We realize
tliat it will be impossible for sonu
of the pupils large enough to work
to stay in school every single day,
but we do hope that it will be pos
sible for every single one of them
to be here for the first day.
The teaching load for the year,
especially if we anticipate an ad
ditional teacher, is reckoned from
the attendance during the first
1 two weeks. We would like very
j much to have an additional teach
| er in our grammar school, but we
will have no chance of gettting this
additional teacher unless our chil

John Henry Lowder, one of the
' eight men who escaped recently
j from central prison here, and Del
mar Stanley, who got away from
Caledonia farm early in the year,
were recaptured at Asheville Sun
day. They were caught in the net
spread for Dili Payne, leader of the
band that escaped from Caledonia,
and the state’s No. 1 bad man.
Payne is wanted now for the kill
ing of Highway Patrolman Penn
near Asheville last week, as well as
for several other crimes since his
escape. Federal G-men have enter
ed the chase for Payne or. a charge
of kidnapping. He and one or two
companions held up a couple near
Black Mountain and forced them to
drive lo Lexington, where they
were dumped from the car which
Payne stole and drove away. Later
ho kidnapped another man in Da
vidson county arul carried him
some distance from home. These
kidnappings violated the federal
statute known as the Lindbergh
law and G-men got on the trail.

Wendell, September Ist Mar
kets here had a successful opening
last week and sales this week on
Monday showed more pounds for
sale than on closing day last week,
and prices were higher. Monday’s
average for 73,00(1 pounds was
i $23.70, which compares well with
i any other market. The average in
crease of $3.00 in price is attribut
ed to better quality of tobacco sold.
All prices are higher than last
year. Wendell’s increased facilities
prevent blocked sales and there is
no immediate danger of tobacco
remaining on the floors overnight.
Ixical tobacconists predict a con
tinuing rise in price and quality of
the weed for this week and next.
Farmers in all counties who have
sold tobacco on the Wendell market
express approval of government
grading and inspection.
Only a few markets in this
state have government grading,
which is uniform and results in a
higher price being paid for tobac
, co. The graders proceed ahead of
auctioneer and buyers, inspecting

All graders are specialists in
their work and were assig/ied to
this market from Washington.
Most of those in Wendell are native

Government grad ing was
brought to the market by local to

saw in it a move to help the farm
er in better marketing his crop.
Their action was approved by al
most nine to one in the referendum
i held a few weeks ago.
