"Cherokee Indian Lore and Smoky
Mountains Stories," is the ' title of
a new, publication just off the press.
Mrs. Margaret R. Siler, of Frank
lin, is the .author and publisher of
this new and interesting booklet.
This new publication is different
from any heretofore published on
this mountain section. Practically
all the booklets now on sale are
of a discriptive nature. Mrs. Siler's
publication deals more in human
interest stories, concerning pioneer
ing days and lore, facts and fancies
of the Cherokee Indians.
To see the booklet is to want to
read it. To read it is "to get real
pleasure in something different.
Mrs. Siler has spent years gather
ing the material for her booklet
and coming off the press at this
time, when so much interest is
centered on the Indians and the
Smoky Mountains, gives it a place
of real interest among publications
'on this section,
' The booklet was printed by the
Bryson City Times. It is now on
sale at news-stands, drug stores,
hotels and craft shops at 50 cents
per copy. It contains "113 pages. '

Increases Hog Sales
More hogs were sold coopera
tively by North Carolina farmers
during the first half of. 1938 than
during the entire year 1937, ac
cording to H. W. Taylor, extension
swine specialist at State college.
Ten of the IS markets where
swine are sold through local co
operative marketing associations re
ported that from December 1, 1937,
to mid-June, 1938, they shipped 48-,
419 hogs that brought $765,974.42.
On 14 markets last year, 48,297 hogs
were sold for $951,561.70.'
When reports from all 15 markets
for the first 'half of this year are
tabulated, Taylor continued, the
total .amount received for hogs will
run considerably above the figure
for all of 1937.
Last year the hogs averaged 196
pounds apiece and sold for $10.40
a hundredweight. This year the
average was 193 pounds and the
price was approximately aa.l a
hundred pounds. Hog prices this
year were affected by general busi
ness conditions and an increase of
swine production, over the country.
lhe 10 markets from which re
ports have been compiled so far
are at: Tarbor, Plymouth, Warsaw,
Washington, Four Oaks, Shawboro,
Elizabeth town, Greenville, Cbfield,
and Lumber ton.
The marketing associations are
load organizations composed of
growers and are operated by" mem
bers elected to serve as officers.
They are assisted by county farm
agents and the extension swine spe
cialist, who has devoted much of
his time to this phase of coopera
tive marketing during the past year
and a half.
The associations sell direct to the
packing companies who submit seal
ed bids for the farmers' offerings,
