WHAT IS THE TROUBLE
We. are not pessimistic, and our
liver is working fine, but we are
distressed over the tobacco situa-,
tion in Roxboro. The farmers arej
not selling their tobacco here, that
is the Person county farmers, and |
there must be a reason, what is it? j
No longer can the charge be made
that it is not bringing as much as
other markets, for figures show be- I
yond dispute that it is selling just :
as high, if not a little higher on!
this market than elsewhere. Aver
ages do not lie, that is when they
are correctly stated and upon these
figures we are bold in making the
statement above, that your tobacco j
will briife you just as much on thej
Roxboro market as you can. get on
ANY market. Read the tobacco ar
ticle on the front page, and remem
ber these figures are correct in
Well then, what is the trouble?
Quite a number of reasons have
been advanced, but we would not
say any were altogether correct. For
instance, some" say it is because some
nearby, markets furnish an oppor
tunity to get white-lightning, liquor,
others say it is because of the
sales tax, and others say it is be
cause the people of Roxboro care
nothing about the farmer until time
to sell tobacco comes along. Hon
estly, we do not believe any of
these answer the question; we do
n<5t believe the good people of this
County are carrying their tobacco
to Virginia because they want the
privilege of buying liquor from a
bar room; as a matter of fact?If
reports we hear are true?they can
buy all they want, in any quantity
they want, at any time they want
it, right here in Roxboro. As to
the sales tax, this will not hold
good, for no one will travel fifty or
sixty miles to save three cents on
the dollar oh their small purchases.
As to the charge that the people of
Roxboro are hostile or indifferent
to the people from the country, and
only recognize them when they want
to sell them something or make
something out of them, th's.charge
Is too silly to even consider serious
ly. There Is not a town to be found
anywhere which will go farther to
accommodate and help one in trou
ble than Roxboro, regardless of
whether that one In want is from
the town or country. As evidence of
this fact, when you or your neigh
bor suffer misfortune where do you
immediately go for assistance? To
Roxboro, of course, and have you
ever bt*n denied, on even treated.
Indifferently on such an occasion?
No, the merchants, the lawyers, the
doctors, the ministers, and the
newspaper folks, always respond, and
do K gladly.
But, there is a reason, and if
seme one wiser than we, would only
tell us what It Is then wa-aeuWget
remedy the matter;
Out of this crop Roxboro should
s?U at least/fivfc mlUlop p^unds, in
cluding What comes here from near
by territory, but unless^ things
change 'this market will not sell
much more than one-third of the
tobacco raised in the County. Some
thing wrong, yes, but what is it?
Talk about optimism, our good
friepd, Mrs. S. Ben Davis, is truly
an optimist. You know Mrs. Davis
has her heart set on a" community
building for Roxboro, and unless the
string breaks she Is going to see
her much cherished desire material
ize, but. she has wagered us that
said Building will be completed by
Thanksgiving day .and that is what
we call optimism. Well sister, we
hope yon gre right but we are very
much of the opinion that your hopes
will be blasted. :?? '
Dr. A. T. Allen, who served so
faithfully as Superintendent of
Public Instruction, died Sunday.
True, his administration was great

to carry on as he desired, but he
accepted what was given without
complaint, and did a good job of it.
His successor has not been named
at this writing, but there are a
number of worthty men who will
be willing to wear his mantle, any

The nationwide hay shortage plus
the increased number of animals to
oe wintered in this State will place
\ heavy demand on North Carolina
tanners this year.
Every California farmer will do
well to save all the available rough
age this fall and make preparation
now for growing winter hay crop
tor early grazing next spring, says
John A. Afey, extension dairy spe
cialist at State College.
Oats, barley, abruzzi rye, . or a
mixture of these cereals, and crim
son'clover sown in- September will
furnish good grazing early next
spring. If the season is favorable,
they will furnish grazing this fall.
Seeding for grazing purposes
should be heavy. Mr. Arey
recommended the following mix
ture, which have given good results.
In these mixtures, the. quantity "of
seed needed for one acre is listed:
Two bushels of abruzzi rye and 15
pounds of crimsoil clover, or a mix
ture of one bushel of beardless
wheat, one bushel of beardless bar
ley, and one and a half bushel of
oats, and 20 pounds of hairy vetch
or 30 pounds of Austrian winter
The rye and clover mixture does
not make good hay, but makes ex
cellent grazing for late fall and
early spring when sown in Septem
ber. The second mixture, sown
preferably between October *1 and
15, can be used for both grazing and
If hay is to be harvested, grazing
should be discontinued in . March,
the exact date depending upon the
location in the E>tatevYlelds of two
to five tons of hay per acre have
been secured from this latter mix
ture when sown on good lands.
The hay will be ready to harvest
next May when the cereals are in
the milk stage of maturity.
