Fifty Farmers Growing Tobac-j
co <let Valueable Advice j
on This Crop
A. H. Veazey, tobacco expert, is I
in the county, working with Julian 1
Glazener and visiting the tobacco ?
growers of Transylvania county. Mr. I
Veazy is giving instructions on the!
proper cultivation of the new crop, 1
which fifty farmers of the county j
are growing this year. Mr. Glazener ?
is taking the lead in this work, !
while the Brevard Banking company j
is furnishing free plants to the fifty
farmers for one acre of tobacco 1
each. The expert was brought here
to give advice on tobacco growing.
A meeting of interested growers ,
is called for 3:00 o'clock Saturday!
afternoon. For convenience the meet- 1
ing to be held in the agricultural j
room. At this meeting, Mr. Veazy j
will have the results of soil tests ,
made in the different sections of the
county ready, and will discuss their
adaption to tobacco growing. The
tobacco expert has machines and
testing outfit with him and will
make authoritative explanations of j
culture methods and fertilizing of
the different soils for the production
of tobacco. No charge whatever will
be made for any of the work done
by the expert while here.
Mr. Veazey was born and reared
on a tobacco farm in Granville
county. He was graduated from
State College in 1922 and did Voca
tional work at Rosewood, N. C. un
til 1929. While teaching agriculture
at the Rosewood High School he was
selected as the Master Teacher of
Agriculture in the Southern Region
embracing 12 Southern states. He
is now with the V-C Chemical com
pany as their specialist in soils, fer
tilizers and crops. He will give ad
vice to the farmers in this county
on selecting their fields for tobacco ,
and making fertilizer recommenda- !
tions. Mr. Glazener considers that
he has been very fortunate in secur- j
ing the services of Mr. Veazy and
urges that all farmers interested in [
tobacco growing endeavor to be at
the High School Saturday afternoon.
TO TAX PAYMENTS!
Tax payers will be interested in
an announcement on another page,
setting forth the fact that all 1929
state and county taxes must be paid
by April 30, and that all property
on which taxes have not beenpaid at
that time will be advertised for sale,
beginning the first Wednesday in
May. County officials are urging
the people to pay now, and avoid the
rush of the last days, and to avoid
advertisement of their property.
t.ast year an extension of time
was given the tax payers, but that,
it is pointed out, was by special act
land applied only to the 1928 taxes,
land did not change the old law at all,
nor does it apply to this year's pay
ment, nor is" there any way in which
the county commissioners or the
county tax collector can extend
It is learned from the county offi
cials that the law provides that those
whose property is sold for taxes may
redeem such property upon payment
of the taxes, with an additional
$1.70, and further addition of one
per cent per month added to the
bill. If the i roperty is not redeem
ed at the end of a' year from the
time of its sale, then title becomes
absolute to the property, and the
new purchaser, or the purchaser of
the tax certificate, is in possession
sf.id property under good title.

HIS HONOR'S GAVEL
.The Court's Pencils Had Also
Made a Hasty Get-a-Way
During Recess |
Judge Walter E. Moore returned j
(to the Superior court room last Fri- ?
iday afternon to resume court after .
having had his recess and lunch. In
his quiet, dignified manner His
; Honor took his seat and reached for
jthe gavel, his emblem of authority, j
His Honor failed to find his gavel ,
[in its accustomed place. Search was ?
made, officers were called, spectators
(joined in, and no gavel could be .
found. Then it was that His Honor
desired to make a notation of (some
thing, and he reached for his pencil,
or one of his pencils, for he kept i
i several pencils about the bench.
But, like the gavel, the pencils had '
'disappeared. No one could imagine
' what had happened.
About this time some one recalled
having seen Lewis Sanders about the
! court room. Chief Freeman and
Deputy Tom Wood went in search of j
the 16-year-old lad. They found)'
him. On him they found the judge's ]
I gavel and pencils. He was brought (
| before the judge, and was given a ,
[sentence for taking thes? things.
? His Honor, wanting to be lenient ,
'with the lad, asked him if he would ij
, be a good boy and not take things!,
any more, if let go. The boy replied li
that he did not know what he would
! do. Then it was that the judge ,j
I passed sentence, later changing the <
I verdict on condition that the boy's J
father take him and leave the ?
It was the first time in His Hon- ]
or's long experience on *he bench
that any one had stolen any court
equipment. He expressed the hepe
that it will be the last time.
Transylvania county is giving en- ]
couragement to Julian Glazener, ,
teacher of vocational agriculture in ]
I the Brevard High school, in his work ,
! by assisting with the cultivation of .
'several acres of land on the county j
'home farm as an expermiental sta- ,
|tion. This action was taken at the j
i meeting of the board of county com- ,
i missioners last Monday.
The Young Tar Heel Farmers in i
Mr. Glazener's class, will cultivate :
'this land under the " supervision of i
| the teacher. The county will assist 1
; in providing fertilizer and other
j things in connection with the suc
cessful demonstration of crop-grow- ;
iing, soil study and fertilizer analy
sis. The work Mr. Glazener is doing ,
with the agricultural class is recog- .
nized as one of the most important .
features of the public school work.
IRISH POTATOES WANTED
'I want some Irish Potatoes, the kind that were
grown in Transylvania county. I are completely out of

from the farmers of the county, I do not want to order -
Irish potatoes from the outside, ftfy customers are rear

SCHOOL BOARD IS
LOSER IN CONTEST
WITH BONDING CO.
Many Cajes Disposed of On
Civil Docket In the
EUGENE HAMILTON IS
AWARDED $3000 VERDICT
Several Case* Settled by Con
to July Term
? ? ,
Many cases have been disposed ,
of during the week since Superior!
court took up the civil docket of the J
March-April term. Settlement has]
ben made by consent in some of thej
cases., while others have been con
tinued to the July-August term.
Of especial interest is the case of
U. S. Fidelity and Guaranty com
pany against the Transylvania coun
ty school board, in which the bond
ing company secured a judgment
against the school board in the sum
of $1603 and interest from Decem
ber, 1925 to date. This amount had
been held out of money on contract
to the Jordan Building company,
contractors on the High School job.
This item had ben held back because
of alleged default by the contractor
in failing to complete the building.
The bonding company was on the
contractor's bor.d, and were subro
gated to the rights of the contractor,
and therefore, due the $1600.
The Sullivan-Markley company,
hardware dealers, also won suit for
5700 with interest from December,
1925 to date, against the board of
eductaion for supplies furnished ih
the building of the High School.
It is believed the board of educa-i:
tion will now institute suit against
the bonding company for recovery of 1
this ?700 item and other damages '?
iiaimed by the board of education 1
because of failure of the contractor
:o complete the work.
Eugene H. Hamilton won a verdict I
Df $3000 damages for personal in
juries in the case in which the plain
tiff alleged were received while in
