3thr Zcitulmt ißcnird VOLUME XIV. This, That, and The Other MRS. THEO. B. DAVI6 The father of a good-looking sixteen-year-old boy told me this of him recently, his expression a queer mixture of bewilderment, amusement and exasperation: “I just can’t understand it. The phone rings and he answers and talks a • few minutes. Then he asks, ‘May I have the car tonight’? I reply that he cannot and he repeats what I have said. I get the idea that he will be at home after supper. But pretty soon a horn sounds and out he rushes, the girl having gotten her father’s car and having come for him. Off they go; I don’t • know where.” He shook his head, repeating, “I just can’t understand it.” Nor can I. • It is always a pleasure to receive helpful suggestions and tested re cipes for this paper; and the fol lowing from Mrs. Baylus Whitley at Siler City is gladly given space. Anything that is friendly to two slices of bread and a lunch-box is valuable to mothers of school children and others besides me will appreciate this. Green Tomato Mincemeat. One peck green tomatoes, two tablespoons salt, one cup suet, chopped fine, two tablespoons cin namon, two tablespoons grated nutmeg, five pounds sugar, two pounds raisins, one cup vinegar and two tablespoons ground cloves. Chop the tomatoes fine, pour off juice. Scald tomatoes twice and drain; add sugar, salt and suet: Boil together until well cooked. When cold add vinegar and spices. Put away in crocks. To use bake between two crusts. Serve as you would mince pie. P. S. Sometimes I add a few ap ples (chopped in small pieces) to this recipe. This mince meat used with whole wheat bread makes a delicious sweet sandwich. It will keep unsealed, but when I put it in open jars I usually pour melted paraffin over it.

Rain-No Circus To the disappointment of those who braved the weather on Tues day to attend the circus, there was no performance either afternoon or night. During the day intermit tent rain and wind caused post ponement. When night arrived, the management decided that the rain was still too hard to justify opening and movcfl the circus to the next town expecting it. Kay Bros, gave Zebulon a fine little entertainment last year and it is regretted that there was can cellation of the acts this time. ABC News ~ Competition seems so great end not from bootleggers but other stores of the same sort, that our local ABC store does not seem to be doing a “land-slide” business. Some of our citizens prefer buying their liquor elsewhere. A small boy pasing the store one night said he did not see anybody there except some colored women. We passed by this week and took a peep inside. All we saw was one clerk sitting comfortably, a white woman standing at one end of the counter and two colored women standing at the other. A young man who now has a good job came into the shop about 10:30 o’clock on a recent night. His breath smelled like he had just popped out of a whiskey barrel. I 1 wonder how long be will have that good job. 1 In 18 days of actual selling the ! local store has sold liquor to the ’ amount of $3114.00, an average of $178.00 a day. That it is said Buffalo Bill sever saw a buffalo.
