On Tuesday of last week a large
number of farmers gathered at the
home of M. C. Poole to prepare his
land for planting corn. By continued
rains and sickness in Mr. Pooles fami
ly he was thrown far behind with his
farm work and was surprised to find
so many teams ready to plow, disc,
and plant his corn in the bottom
lands in this County on Drowning
Creek. A good days work was done
by not only natives of Moore and her
neighbor Counties, Montgomery and
Richmond, but farmers who have de
veloped farms here from Cleveland,
Gaston, Anson and Stanly Counties.
These are the kind of people we like
to see move in here to develope our
idle land and shows o#r community
We did not have as large a crowd

not known so well in many towns we

is expected to hold its own during the
financial depression for our resort is
known far and near.
