Market Anxious To Please
All Its Patrons, Home
Agent Declares
Home Demonstration Agent
Mrs. A. B. Rogerson. of the Bear
Grass community, has been present
selling every week on the curb mar
ket since its opened day, March 28th.
Her total sales thus far are $56.31,
sufficient to pay many small bills, im
prove home conditions, or purchase
new equipment and help pay taxes.
Her sales have been made chiefly on
her layer cakes. To make a success
ful seller, the person has to have cour
age to face a week now and then with
little or no money taken in, due to
not having produce which public cares
to buy or having a surplus of what
many folks already have.
Some time ago it was thought the
market might possibly open to every
one in the country, but this can not
be done and continue the success of
the niarke.t due to the sixe of Wil
liamston, which is the buying center
and the surplus produce which seems
to be in evidence this year. It has been
found through observation that twelve
sailers on the market are more liable
to have success selling than any other
We wish to please each patron com
ing to our market, and if we fail to do
this, tell us. We are glad to serve
you the best possible way. A few of
the prices which will be found on the
'market fo'low:
Snap brans, 4c lb.; cabbage, 3 Iba.
for sc; lettuce, 4 to 8c; cream, 30c
pint; eggs, 19c doien; beets, 5c bunch;
carrotts, 6c bunch; onions, 5c bunch;
cottage cheese, 15c block; new pota
toes, 8 lbs for 25c.
Remember our motto, "Where town
and country meet— at the curb mar
ket." We are looking forward to
meeting you there next Saturday.
Griffins Farmer Reports
Strange Tobacco Worm
"I don't believe it is the bud worm,"
. but some kind of pest is at work in
i our tobacco field,"'reported Mr. Simon
, Griffin, Griffins Township
farmer, yesterday. According to Mr.
Griffin, the worm bores a hole the sixe
of one's Kttle finger and deatroys the
top of- the plant. No great damage
has resulted so far, Mr. Griffin stated.
Reporting the condition of his crop
as only fair, Mr. Griffin stated that
it would be a matter of only a few
weeks before tobacco coring will be
under way.
