luxuries, which those opposed to them

other states the Legislators were not

One of these state was Ohio, which
levied a "nuisance tatc" on cigarettes

In that State the tax is called simply
"the State cigarette tax." We find

In All Classes Of

Richmond. Va.. Oct. 3. Reports of
"defiinite imorovement in nearly all
classes of business" in the Carolinas
in August were released today by the
Fifth District Federal Reserve bank
here in its district summary for Au
gust and September.
"Although there was no marked in
crease in the total volume of business
transacted in the Fifth Federal Re

increases in special lines were noted,
and several barometers of trade show
more than a mere seasonal rise, the
"Definite improvement in nearly all
classes of business is reported from
the Carolinas, where cotton and to
bacco play a more prominent part
than in other sections."
Continuing, the summary said, "the
textile situation improved more than
any other industry last month."
"Higher cotton prices as a result pf
a much smaller crop than in recent
years" stimulated buying of textiles
"quite materially," it was noted and
cotton consumption increased "more
than seasonally in August."
Mills took on more employes and
orders were received in August "in

To Beat Asheville
Mountaineers Out For Du
plication Of Last Years
Feat. Trounce Sylva
Coach Weatherby and his Mountain
eers have about rounded out ifinal
training for what is considered the
hardest battle of the season which will
bf, played against the Asheville high
school team at Asheville Friday after
noon. The Mountaineers have put in a
week of hard work in smoothing out
the few wrinkles that were found in
the Sylva game here last Friday when
the local pig-skin carriers trounced
the visitors for a 39-0 figure in a game
which was never in doubt victory for
the Weatherby team.
Rumors drifting here from the
mountain metropolis is that the Ma
roons are a bit uneasy about the affair
that is scheduled to take place Friday
afternoon, and they have settled down
to steady work to try to get revenge

The Svlva team cof off K,
start here Friday by fumbling the
ball on three different occasions im
mediately after the initial kickoff.
They lacked the power and drive to
crash th Mountaineer line, and were
unable to get through to the Waynes
ville backs who carried the ball like
veterans of old. Bridges, Reeves,
Captain Wyatt, Davis and Khune, all
starred in the game, and were sup
ported on the line by the outstanding
playing of Murray, and Davis, with
Patton coming in for some nice tack
les. In the last quarter Coach Weatherby
sent in his second team and they were
marching steadily toward a touch
down when the lnal whistle blew.
A large crowd of local fans was
on hand to witness tha game and lend
their support to the team, but were
at no time uneasy as to who woul
be holding the big end of the score
from the very first play.

Drive For Control
Forth Worth, Texas. The Texas
Republican trap for disgruntled Dem
ocrats has been baited with a 60-year-old,
square-shouldered business man,
Orville Bullington, who aspires to the
Governorship of Texas.
Many voters are ready to walk with
heads high into the Republican trap
next November. Graciously admitting
the qualities of Mrs. Miriam A. Fer
guson's canned peaches they stubborn
ly deny that any good could come out
of another Ferguson regime.
The apparent nomination of "Ma,"
wife of James E. (Pa) Ferguson, im
peached as governor of the state, has
left many Democrats in a daze, others
in consternation, and political pro
phets puzzled. Her lead over Gov,
Ross S. Sterling, her opponent for
the nomination, was about 3,800 votes.
Texas Republicans were quick to
see possibilities of breaking political
fences. Ihey planned to assail Dem
ocratic fortresses .with the strongest
campaign ever made.
Ihey admit, however, the name of
John N. Garner on the national Dem
ocratic ticket, will prevent many vot
ers from deserting orthodox paths.
Bullington, an independent oil op
erator, for many years paid political
homage at the Democratic shrine
along with his Tennessee forbearers.
In 1919 the Underwood tariff caused
him to sever party allegiance. The

To win in thP general election in
November, Texas Republicans will
have to poll about 100,000 more votes
than Texais gave Hoover in 1928, pro

voting strength of the primary elec

With the damage by field mice and

"AH orchards should be inspected at

readily be determined by looking for
