YOUNG MAN IS
BOUND OVER ON
SERIOUS CHARGE
Probable Cause Found By
Recorder in Hopkins
Abortion Case
Probable cause appearing in the case
charging him with aiding and abetting
an abortion, Harry Hopkins, Williams
Township white man, was required by
Judge Bailey in recorder's court here
Wednesday to give bond in the sum
of $750 for his appearance at the next
term of Martin County Superior couft
for trial.
While one of the state's witnesses,
Ruth Daw, denied the charge that an
illegal operation had been performed
upon her and refused to testify against
Hopkins, other witnesses offered testi
mony considered sufficient by the court
to connect the man with the alleged
crime. According to the testimony of
fered last Wednesday morning in a
recessed session of the county court,
Hopkins paid a Lenoir County doctor,
whose name was given as Dr. Max
well, of near Seven Springs, to per
form the operation.
It Is understood that marriage of the
two wss considered, but the plan
flopped when Hopkins is said to have
offered no more than his name in the
deal, refusing to pledge his support of
the girl. It is also understood that
Hopkins advanced the marriage prop
osition upon the condition that charges
now pending against him be dropped,
but that was not accepted.
Since the case, regrettable as it is,
reached the courts, the Dr. Maxwell,
said to have figured in the illegal pro
cedure, died of old age at his home in
Lenoir County.

LOCAL FIRM GETS
SII,OOO JUDGMENT
Big Suit Settled In Federal
Court at Washington
This Week
A $11,559 judgment was granted the
J. K. Terry Company against Hyde
County, by the Federal court in spec
ial session at Waahington this week.
The suit was for the recovery of
commission due the' bond company for
the sale of $275,000 Hyde county bonds
a few years ago. The county bad of
fered the bond for sale, but could not
find a buyer at above par for the 5 1-2
per cent bonds. Mr. Julius S. Peel
contracted with the county, guarantee
ing it a premium of $5,000 or to take
60 per cent of all above par for his
service. The contract was duly re
corded in the minutes of the board of
commissioners for that county. The
bonds were sold and brought a prem
ium of $19,265. Soon after the sale
was effected, a new board of commis
sioners went into office and refused to
carry out the contract mad* by the
previous board. The action of the first
body was repudiated, the county, it ia
said, having been encouraged ia the
act by a bond broker who had at
tempted to buy the bonds at par.
In the hearing, Judge I, M. Meekins
instructed the members, of the jury
that if they believed the records they
should return a verdict against the
county for 60 per cent of the amount
of the premium, or $11,559 with in
terest.

The junior 4-H short course will be

MARKETING OF
TOMATOES GOES
ALONG SLOWLY
Jamesville Farmers Have
Shipped Around 4,000
Bushels So Far —-
The marketing of tomatoes in the
Jamesville section of the county is
progressing very slowly at this time,
Professor W. T. Overby, agricultural
teacher in the school there, said last
Wednesday. Up until the middle of
this week, the farmers of that section
had shipped around 4,000 bushels of
tomatoes. The shipments hsve been
made in comparatively small lots as
the maturity of the crop has been
greatly retarded. A few farmers con
tinue to deliver there, but many have
abandoned the work as the crop was
so badly damaged by dry weather that
they found it unprofitable, to Rather
and market the tomatoes.
The quality of many of the deliver
ies now being made is unusually poor,
returning little cash to the grower and
virtually no profit. The market
has shown a little added strength dur
ing the past few days probably as a
result of dry weather, but even then
the prices are not high, the farmers
receiving around 60 cents for about
one-half of one bushel of No. 1 grade
and around 37 cents for the same a
mount of the No. 2 grade. The prices
are gross, netting the farmer just a
bout half that much or probably a lit
tle over.
Some farmers are plowing up their
vines, and for them the season has
been a complete failure.
Reporting on the general crop con
ditions in the Jamesville stcion,. Pro
fessor Overby stated that they were
"mighty bad". While peanuts are at
a standstill, they have the best chance
of any crop there, he said. Tobacco
is homing up and corn is dying in all
parts of the section. Mr. Overby was
of the opinion that noUtmofe than 25
per cent of a normal crop of corn
would be harvested there this fall, the
drought having limited the yield that
much. Young corn has a chance, he
stated, but the old is just about gone
to ruin. ,f>*

THREE HURT IN
CAR ACCIDENT
Mrs. Kate York and Two of
Her Children Badly Cut
in Wreck Yesterday
Mrs. Kate York and two of her
children were badly cut but not seri
ously hurt in .a car accident a few
miles out from Windsor on the Eden
ton road yesterday afternoon. Mrs.
York lost control of the car when she
started to pass another machine. It
turned over three times, throwing
Catherine, 7 years old, and her mother
| out on the first turn. Bernard, 5 years
(old, held to his seat and was not as
badly cut as were the other two. The
little giH fell in the path of the car,
but on its second somersault, the ma
chine missed her in some unexplain
able way.
The car was running at a moderate
speed, Mrs. York, the driver, not
knowing just how fast they were trav
eling when the accident happened.
While all three of them were bruised,
most of the injuries were cuts about
the heads. «
Bill Harrison, riding just behind the
car picked up the three and brought
them back to Windsor where their
wounds were treated, all of them re
turning home late yesterday afternoon.
The car was badly damaged.

REPORT GARDEN
WORK AMONG
NEGRO FARMERS
450 Per Cent Return Made
On SIOO Appropriation
By County Board
Back in the early spring, the Martin
County Board of Commissioners ap
propriated SIOO for the promotion of
garden work among negro farmers of
the county during a period of 10 weeks
in cooperation with the State Exten
sion Service.
Oliver Carter, former colored dem
onstration agent for this county, was
employed, and, according to Mr. C. R.
Hudson, State Supervisor, who kept
in personal touch with the work in this
county, it is safe to assume that at
least 100 new gardens were established
in the county that would not have been
except through the work of the agent.
Mr. Hudson figures that the SIOO in
vested last spring by the commission
ers has returned a profit of $4,000.
The recorders of tfie agent, with ac
tual figures and careful estimates, show
as follows:
Number of demonstration gardens,
127; average size of gardens, 1-3 acres;
Average number of vegetables per gar
den, 10 1-2; number of kinds of vege
tables grown, 30; percentage of gar
dens rated as excellent, 21 percentage
of- gardens rated as medium, 60; per
centage of gardens rated as poor, 19;
average cost of seed and fertilizers per
garden, $4.75; average labor cost per
garden, $4.25; total cost per garden,
$?; estimated value of vegetables per
garden, SSO; average profit per garden,
s4l; average profit per acre, $120; re
turns on investment, 450 per cent.
It is estimated that there are at least
1,500 gardens cultivated by colored
farmers in the county. The demon
stration gardens located as they are,
with 3 to 6 in each community, serve
a good purpose in influencing better
gardens over the whole county. In
addition the activities of the agent
traveling the county, holding meetings
and personal conferences have no
doubt reached and influenced benefic
ially practically these I|soo farm fam
ilies and all of this has come about
from the SIOO invested in the work by
the county commissioners.
Colored Women Go to Law
Over Wearing of Pajamas
Fannie Purvis, Colored, appealed to
the courts for relief this week when
Lillie Bryant, also colored, laughed
and made light of the pajamas worn
on the streets in the neighborhood by
her daughter, "Babe" Purvis.
The remark, "Now don't you feet
big, wearing dem 'genitalis'," made by
the Bryant woman is said to have so
provoked, annoyed, humiliated and ag
gravated the sporting blood of Fannie
jthat she ran to Justice of the Peace J.
|L. Hasscll's court asking it to protect
the atylish parades of her daughter.
No warrant has been issued in the
case, but the complaint is on file and
"gertnans" may be exhibited in the
court most any ole day now.
Highly Respected Colored
Woman Dies Near Here
Louvenia Slade,. highly, respected
colored woman, died at her home in
Sandy Point, near here last Wednes
day. She had been in feeble health for
some time, the infirmities of old age
causing her death.
Reared by the late Mrs. Pennie
Slade, the faithful old woman was
looked upon »• one of the best among
her race in this lection. «
trucks will be in readiness for the
various runs at that time, and aft
ei considering other favorable fea
tures to the early opening, the date
was agreed upon by the authoritiea.
Virtually all the faculties for the
various schools in the county have
been selected, only one or two va
cancies existing here and there
throughout the county system, it
was lesrned yesterday. All vacan
cies in the faculty here have been
filled but one, and it is understood
that applications for thst position are
I being received daily.
BELIEVES CROP
TOBACCO WILL
BRING 15 CENTS
Predict Crop Will Be Less
Than 325,000,000 Pounds
In the Bright Belt
An average price of IS cents a pound
for the 1932 tobacco crop was predict
ed by Mr. \V. T. Meadows, veteran
tobacconist, thjs week. Recently Mr.
Meadows was quoted as saying that
an average price of: 10 cents a pound
could be expected.,JaiiJthat figure was
advanced by others, Mr. Meadows
making clear his prediction, as follows:
"In my last article in your paper,
the comments of your reported quoted
me as saying that this crop would av
erage around 10 cents. In talking to
him, I said fliat the majority of the
best posted men in the tobacco busi
ness thought it would average from 10
to 15 cents. My personal opinion is
that it will be nearer 15 than 10 cents.
Some of our best friends say it ought
to average 30 cents. I agree with
them, but and but again there is a
wheel within a wheel and probably you
can't knock out all the spokes unless
you are on the inside.
"The latest figures from the outside
and which are likely to be reduced are
as follows: Bright States, North Caro
lina, 250 million pounds; South Caro
line, 30 million pounds;- Georgia, 15
million pounds and Virginia, 30 mil
lion pounds. This gives 325 million
pounds out of this crop. The foreign
countries or export trade take annual
ly around 400 million pounds; so
where will the domestic trade come in?
Figure for yourselves."

July Has Been Best Yet !
For Local Curb Market
A goodly number of sellers enjoyed
the benefits of the curb market here
last Saturday. This month has been
the best month thus far on record for
the sellers. The patronage is much
appreciated, and we are hoping to con
tinue to be of service to both buyers
and sellers. It was suggested to the
sellers a few weeks ago that each one
be more thoughtful for some one else
besides self. Any infraction of this
suggestion decreases the benefits of the
market. We appreciate reports of un
satisfactory produce. Our prices fol
low:
Beets, 3 cents bunch, salad 2 cents

corn 12 cents dozen; tomatoes, 3 cents
