Brighten up the home for Christmas festivities with new furniture. Don't let the
sparkling brightness of Christmas put your home to shame! One or two pieces will
do wonders—a new chair for here—a new table for an odd corner —perhaps a complete
ne*v suite! Regardless of your needs, you wjjl find here quality furniture at ex
r, * tremely moderate prices. And for your further convenience, there is our deferred
payment plan. We will hold any pieces until wanted—or make immediate delivery.
And, lest you forget, nothing has yet been discovered to take the place of furniture
, as a perfect gift.

GORMAN'S MARKET REPORT
« , f _________ .
J. ™' "'" W "f not '° large Us ' " eek „! nd we finished "chday «ound the dinner hour. Prices were stronger the latter part of the week. Some new orders were placed here for erades
that had been neglected since just before Thanksgiving. We have worked hard for our customers; and those who sold with us, after looking at. the other sales, were satisfied, and many
thanked us for their good sales. We are now selling lots of barn cleanings and but little fine tobacco. This has affected the average. We note the averages as published in the papers from
the other markets, and these show Greenville s daily average to be higher each day than any market in tho east. It will pay you to sell in Greenville and at Gorman's. The sales will con
tinue small from now on, and you can count on our selling out any day you may come, as there is not enough tobacco, left to cause any more "Block Sales."
We advise against selling scrap. Tie up what you can, and us. the balance for fertilizer. When you sell scrap, if you allow for your work, you get nothing and give the manufacturer
tobacco that he uses in place of other higher-priced tobacco, besides swelling the government report of production, which affects your future crop. Send us your tobacco and we will do our
best to please you. * r 4 * '

' COOPERATION AT
OAK CITY SCHOOL
Secured by Means of Special
Programs; Fiddlers' Con
vention Friday Night
Oak City, Dec. 3.—At a local teachers'
meeting early in September, called by
Principal H. M. Ainsley, for consider
ation and discussion of vital school ob
jectives, the one objective of coopera
tion was emphasized. It was decided
that the home and school should be
brought closer together. It was ad
mitted that patron approval of school
work is imperative for a good com
munity school. The next question was
on the enlightening of patrons, of the
district in order to build up community
cooperation. Special programs and ac-
I tivities were suggested. Therefore, the
ParenfTcacher Association saw a
| chance to function and has been one
great factor in helping to bring about
I the best cooperative spirit in the Oak
I City School that has been ill five years,
• as is expressed by leading members of
the association. Keen interest is mani
fested at each meeting. Problems are i
! freely discussed, sympathetic attitudes |
I expressed, that' the point is realized
that it takes extra activities to J>ring
j home and school together.
Programs, carnivals, fiddlers' con
i vetttions, and plays are drawiitK pa-
I trons to the school who never come
j under ordinary circumstances. A typi-
I cal experiment, the fiddlers' conven
tion Friday night, December* 2, will
illustrate the advantages. The eott
j vention opened at 8 p. m. and lasted
until 10 p. m. The school auditorium
was filled in spite "of rain and bad
roads. Kighty dollars and thirty cents
were .taken in from door receipts This
fund will aid in' taking care of many
things which the school board can not
provide. Fathers, mothers, friends,
and Neighbors came and they went
away rejoicing. Only by a program
of this type can a crowd of people be
brought to the school." Is it worth
