linkers in the town of Washington
are up in arms against out-of-town
bread wagons. They have asked the
town board to increase the license on
bread wagon* from out-of-town bak
erief from sls to SIOO per year.
We see those same Washington
wagons on our streets every day.
Now, what wifl happen if they tax
others out of their town and we tax
them out of our town?
Doubtless it would be a wise thing
to do. Why should Williamston
bread eaters pay the expense of a
man and the cost of heavy trucks to
haul our food from Washington,
Greenville, Rocky Mount, or Norfolk
when we have a bakery in our own
THE LETTER BOX
THE PASSING OF A CHRISTIAN
A Saint of God has been called to
In the passing of the Rev. A. J.
Manning, this community has said
adieu to one whose life and charac
ter proclaimed him to have achieved
the noblest distinction among men;
4 Christian and a gentleman.
* In matters religious he .believed in,
he loved, and he followed his Lord.
In his relationships with other»,rJie
betrayed that keen sense of fairness
and courteous consideration spring
ing from a gentle nature. Always
sympathetic and interested in the
happiness and welfare of others, he
gave himself unsparingly in his min
istrations. He acted as pastor, coun
selor, and friend to hundreds in the
community who rise up to call him
blessed. "Well done, good and faith
ful servant, enter thou into the joys
of thy Lord."
Rev. CLARANCE O. PARDO. )

I Competition is generally a good
