WILLIAMSTON, N. C., FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 1913
There are to be series of far
mers' meetings for the several
counties in the First Congression
al District, beginning August 25th
lam very sure that they will
prove instructive and beneficial
to any citizen who may attend.
I beg that you will aid in giving
publicity to them. The dates and
places at which meeting will be
held in your section areas follows:
Swan Quarter, for Hyde Coun
ty, Monday, Sept. Ist.
Washington, for Beaufort
County, Tuesday, Sept. 2nd.
Greenville, for Pitt County,
Wednesday, Sept. 3rd.
Williamston, for Martin Coun
ty, Thursday, Sept. 4th.
Plymouth, for Washington
County, Friday, Sept. sth.
Columbia, for Tyrrell County,
Saturday, Sept. 6th.
These meetings will be most
interesting and unique in the sub
jects discussed, in the 1 speakers
and in the manner of presenta
Prof. J. ! M. Johnson, of the
Bureau of Farm Management, U.
S. Dept. of Agriculture, will dis
cuss better farming. His lecture
will present the essential features
of good farming from a new view
point. He will claim the atten
tion of every farmer who wishes
to improve his soil, make more
crops and more money.
Dr. William Hart Dexter, of
the Farmers' Co-Operative De
monstration Work, will make
what has been characterized as
an "uplift talk." He will talk
about things which make for the
betterment of country life. He
will discuss the home, the farm
and the community. His speech
will be an inspiration to all men,
who are looking forward to bet
Surgeon Charles W. Stiles, of
the U. S. Public Health Service,
will discuss rural sanitation and
preventable diseases, and will
illustrate his talk with charts and
stereoptican views. The improve
ment of the public health is to
day one of the vital topics among
all intelligent people. Surgeon
Stiles will tell in a clear, simple
manner how the home may be
made sanitary, and how malaria
and fever and other preventable
diseases may be easily controlled.
In conclusion there will be a
series of moving pictures prepar
ed by the new Bureau of Rural
Organization, of the Department
of Agriculture. These pictures
will portray in a graphic way
some of the results of better
methods in country life.
The above brief outline will
justify the opening statement
that these meetings will be most
instructive and attractive. Noth
ing like them has heretofore been
attempted for the people of the
State. They will touch upon
vital subjects by attractive meth
lam constrained to add this
additional statement. These
meetings have been arranged at
much trouble and expense. There
is no purpose in them except one
of service to our people. Will
not your intelligent readers who
know the value of attendance
upon auch a meeting come them
selves and endeavor to induce
their less fortunate neighbors to
Again, while these meetings
are intended primarily for the
men upon the farm, yet the mer
chant, manufacturer and the pro
fessional man will also find them
informing. The bulk of our citi
zens who are not farmers are
directly or indirectly dependent
upon tne farm. They can in no
better way show their interest
than by their participation and
by giving publicity to these meet
ings. - #

No Better Market
The Williamston Tobacco Mar
ket Opened on August 20th. with
a large number of pounds, which
brought prices largely in excess
of any previous year for the
grades offered. From day to
day these prices have been as
high— no slump, but this week
the tendency has been upward.
The offerings are not so large as
the curing has not been complet
ed yet, and owing to the lateness
of the spring, the crop is at least
one month behind. But the
Williamston market is right-up
to-the-minute in every way.
is no need of any man car
rying his weed to a larger market,
for no prices in the State have
been higher than the ones given
here for every pile of tobacco of
fered. This is made possible by
the capable handling of the weed
by the warehousemen in the
Dixie and Roanoke, and the full
corps of buyers here to take all
kinds of leaf offered on the floors.
Study conditions and find that the
home market is best and safest.
Stop and read the names of the
companies who have buyers here:
Imperial Tobacco Co., American
Tob. Co., Export Leaf Tob. Co.,
British-American Tob. Co., Lig
gett & Myers Tob. Co./ Ijorillard
Tob. Co., R. J. Reynolds Tob.
Co., J, P. Taylor Co., Janes N.
Boyd & Co., Dibbrell Bros & Co.,
and several other large indepen
dent buyers. This list places the
Williamson market in line with
Greenville, Wilson, Kinston,
Rocky Mount and other large
markets. "There's a reason"
bring your leaf to Williamston.
Shot in the Breast •
*. . * _____
Friday night of last week, be
tween 10 and 11 o'clock a pistol
shot was heard in the rear of the
house qi Annie Faulk, who with
her children lives near the Pants
Factory. Several of her children
were awake and to them and to
neighbors who heard the noise,
she told that she was cleaning an
old pistol and accidentally shot
herself in the breast. Upon in
vestigation, the pistol was not
found and suspicion was aroused
that the wounded woman's story
was incorrect-that she was
shielding some one else. Dr.
Warren was summoned and gave
her necessary attention. The
police have arrested no one for
ACTS ON THE LIVER
Dodson's Liver Tone Livens up the
Liver~ Is More Than a Mere
Calomel was for years the only
known medicine that would
stimulate^thr liver. But calomel
is often dangerous, and people
are not to be blamed for beijig
afraid of it.
Within the last few years many
medicines have been put out to
bemused instead of calomel, but
their effect is on the bowels—not
on the liver. Saunders & Fow
den drug store says that the only
real liver medicine to actually
take the place of calomel is Dod
son's Liver Tone, a mild, harm
less, vegetable liquid that Saun
ders & Fowden recommended to
take the place of calomel and
which gives prompt relief in cases
of constipation, biliousness and
So confident are Saunders &
Fowden that they give their per
sonal guarantee with every 50
cent bottle of Dodson's Liver
Tone. You can be sure that you
are getting Dodson's by asking
at this store if they are giving
you the medicine they personally
i guarantee to refund money on if
