The Giants at the Bat
The season in base ball opened
with the Williamston giants in
contest with *the Robersonville
Highs on the latter's diamond last
Friday. It was not a test struggle
but just a "limbering up," and
the Giants won. Bob Biggs, the
substitute ior the Giauts, painted
the ball luriei several times and
brought home all the honors of the
day. He was the man who tried
not to bat but just could not help
putting out two baggers.

Monday and Tuesday there was
something doing in ball circles here
for Aurora, which rises up and will
not down, came with her aggrega
tion of invincibles—at least, when
the Giants are up for battle —and
dealt out goose eggs by the peck.
Those down the country boys are
just built that way, and are trained
veterans, for theirs is the best team,
perhaps, in Eastern Carolina. Last
year Williamston played them and
liked the style with which they can
win, and so this season the Giants
met them and weftt down. The
first game was an easy victory for
visitors, because the locals had not
been iu the game long enough this
season to get the swing of the bat.
Auror» had batting luck and found
Brown easy. Later in the game
Ward, though a little shakey, held

The second game on Tuesday
was not so soft for the visitors, for
the Giants had caught some snap
and ginger, and Ward's pitching
for the locals was the chief feature
of the game. But the support was
not as good as need and so Aurora
won againg, but they had to fight
hard, for the game was intensely
interesting after the second inning,
the fans dubbing it good playing.

sure you that I most heartily and
keenly appreciate the same.
Not being aware of any com

mance of the duties pertaining to
the office, and thinking that my
services and experience might pro
bably merit your further considera

assuring you that the best and all
that is, of and in me, are at your
command, I take the liberty of
seeking further consideration at
your hands, and hereby announce
myself as a candidate for the office
of Sheriff of Martin County, sub

111 Splendid Condition
The first annual meeting of the
stockholders of the Bank of James
ville was held in the banking house
at Jainesville on June 15th, with
all the stock represented. The re
port of the president was a splendid
showing of the condition of the
bank. It showed that the earnings
for the first year were seven and
one-half per cert. This statement is
highly satisfactory and very flatter
ing to the management. The peo
ple of the section are giving the in
stitution substantial support, and
uo recently established bank can
make a better showing.
All the old officers were reelected
and another year opens for greater
things. The statement called for
on the 14th. appears in this issue.
The institution adds another to the
list of Martin County's strong bank.

county in the Legislature, since its
population for the most part is
made up of farming people. He is
an up right, public spirited citizen
and a true gentlemen iu every sense
of the word, I have lived by him
for twenty years and I can truth
fully say that there is no better
man or neighbor in this section and
I venture to say, not in this county.
He is well-informed, abreast with
the times, and backed by fifty years
of business experience. He has
lived in this county all of his life,
knows its peculiar and is
eminently fitted to act on any
issue that may arise. He will
make a legislator this whole county
shall be proud to call its law-maker.

Insects in Peanuts
Until recently the peanut was
considered practically immnne from
insect injury, the growing plants
suffering no noticeable damage,
while the 'nuts" are protected by
their shells from the usnal insect
enemies of stored products. With
the advent of the mechanical
thrasher or "peanut picker" this
injury has greatly increased,
amounting to as high, as 30 per
cent. This is due to the tendency
of operrtors lo feed the nuts too
quietly through the oacbine, re
sulting in practice of piling nuts
high in storage ware-houses, and
climbing upon the sacks, thus
breaking the shells, and increasing
the percentage of infestation. The
insect principally concerned in in
jury to the stored product is the
Indian-meal moth. It is cater
pillar, which, when fully grown,
measures about half an inch in
length, develops with great rapidity
and if not checked does consequent
serious injury. Tne moth which
lays the eggs which produce this
destructive caterpillar appears in
the Virginia peanut-growing region
in March and April, and by June
the first new generation or 'brood"
of moths first becomes noticeable in
numbers. Later, other generations
are produced—as many as four in
ordinary temperatures and still
more in heated buildings.
Twoetiective methods of control
may be employed with excellent re
sultsr»-6eat and fumigation. Heat
is applicable onlv to mills or storage
rooms heated by steam. By em
ploying steam at a pressure of 75 to
100 pounds a temperature of 120
degrees F. may be easily pioduced
on a hot day in summer. This
temperature, if maintained for
about six hours, readily penetrates
the bags and destroys the instats.
The temperature should not be
raised above 125 degrees F, as ex
periments have showtl that blanch

apt to take place at higher tempera
