Hog Killings Are
Hog killing days are about spent d
in Martin County, reports from var-1
ious sections indicating that the
farming population is amply pre-1
pared to supply the dinner pail and v
table for another season with choice's
meats. Incidentally, there's a bump a
er crop of sweet potatoes, and while j I
ready cash money may not be so] ?
plentiful, there is no immediate dan
ger of a famine in Martin County
It is roughly estimated that Mar
tin County farmers killed and salted
approximately two million pounds
of meat this season or enough to
give every person nearly 80 pounds.
About the last if not the last of
the hog killings was reported on for
mer County Commissioner T. C.
Griffin's farm out in Griffins Wed
nesday Mr. Griffin, a leading far
mer m the county, packed in excess
of 3,000 pounds for his home use and
an additional poundage for his ten
ants, who, practicing living at home.
| had raised their own meat.
? The hog killing was typical ofoth
ers held in Griffins Township, prob
ably from the time the district was
established. Neighbors from all ov
er the community and other friends
from miles around gathered at the
home, most of them to lend a help
ing hand, and others to enjoy a
community gathering and still oth
ers to participate in a sumptuous
meal. All are welcomed on such oc
casions which are greatly enjoyed.
Several of Mr. Griffin's former
associates in the county courthouse
and a few other friends were spec
ial guests. And then there were Mr.
and Mrs! A. T. Griffin and son,
Thomas, of Goldsboro. Mr. Griffin,
