OAK CITY IN
JUDGING CONTEST
Three members of the aKricultural
class of Oak City high school left
Wednesday at noon for Kuleigh, ac
companied by their coach, P. T. Long,
where they judged livestock yester
day. Two of the boys are judging
farm crops today.
Oak City hopes to at least main
tain its record of last year and is try -
inir hard to improve over its record of
last year.
In 1923, Oak City won seventh
place out of fifty-three schools that
look part ill the contest at the State
fair, there being only a few points
difference in their score and that of
the teum winning first place.
The following boys made the trip
to Raleigh, Clyde Manning, Garfield
Hunch ami Wiley Goodrich.
■ The boys feel very much encouraged
as they won out in a contest at Rocky
M unt fair last week. Clyde Manning
winning 2nd prise in judging swim
and Wiley Goodrich winning third
prize judging dairy cattle.
AVERAGESGOOD ON
LOCAL MARKET
October Will Lead By a
25 Per Cent
Average
Tobacco is one of ilie main com
modities produced in Martin count>
and when it fails in pounds or price
business in this territory is wreath
affected. We are unfortunate this
ei-son in production, the crou being
less than two-thirds of a normal yield
On the oth.-r hand, prices; aie ranging
much higher than last season. Septem
ber did not show a large difference in
price, but for October there is per
hips a gain of as much as twenty-five
per cent over last year.
Many farmers hava averaged foi
barns through on the Williamstoi
maret this week as high as seventy
■ cents and lar.-je numbers goit: :g fifty
ami sixty averages.
1 The local warehousemen have made
J stronger pull for tobucco thi. season
than for seevral years and c.inuderint:
the short crop are getting good p-it
lonage. While the break was not so
large today, prices were' soaring a
lound the high marks and judging
from several conversations with farm
ers they are highly pleased wiih th«
sales.

hail a new experience Tuesday just
(he sun was hiding behind the west
ern hills when they were huming a
ling one of the prongs of Reedv
swamp and suddenly came across
I hree barrels of beer. After medita
ting over the circumstances for a
few minutes, they turned aver the
barrels and outpoured the beer. Every
thing was lonely and ifuiet as could
be. The officers walki-d a few paces
to a fence and when they looked over
it they beheld a portable liquor fac
tory. Mr. Will Chesson had a .70 yal
lon capacity still on his hack with
the snout on his shoulder and Mr.
I'almer White by his side with keu>
and other equipment to lie used in
the manufacturing process.
Just as the officers saw the men
they were seen by the manufacturers
'She sheriff called to 'hem to come
forward and Chesson walked deliber
ately and laid the still at the sheriff's
feet. Different notions entered the
man White's head and he turned his
shoe sole.-, on the .sheriff and soon
disappeared.
Chesson said the beer was his and
that the still was borrowed and White
wi>s a helper.
