VS. . ;: "-;
J. H. VAUGHN.
Under and by virtue of a judg
ment in the above entitled cause
in the Superior Court of Haywood
County, North Carolina, on April
20th, 1942, the undersigned Com
missioner will on June 8, 1942, at
12 o'clock Noon at the Courthouse
door in the Town of Waynesville,
Haywood County, North Carolina,
sell at public auction to the high
est bidder for cash, subject to the
confirmation of the court, the one-
half undivided interest of the
following described real property,
belonging to J. H. Vaughn, which
said property is located in the Town
of Canton, Haywood County, North
Carolina, and more particularly
described as follows:
BEGINNING on a stake, the
Southeast corner of the Standard
Oil Company lot, and runs with said
line N. Ti 4& w. 81.5 leet to a
stake in the North Margin of Birch
Street, then with said margin of
said street, S. 80 30' E. 65 feet
to a stake, then N. 11 30' E. 106
feet to the BEGINNING, being a
part of the property conveyed to
Ray Byers and wife, Ethel Byers,
from Fred Newman and wife, by
deed dated Feb. 4, 1927, recorded
in Book 74, page 316, in the Office
of the Register of Deeds for Hay
wood County, North Carolina.
Being the same property con
veyed by Ray Byers and wife,
Ethel Byers, to J. H. Vaughn and
wife, Hilda Vaughn, by deed dat
ed the 5th day f April, 1927, re
corded in Deed Book 71, page 462,
recorded in the Office of the Regis
ter of Deeds for Haywood County,
him for breakfast were all that
imy bird could want, it didn't hurt
his nose a bit to sniff that good
smoke that came from the hum and
griddle cakes and coffee that Black
ie was having for his own break
Blackie's day before had been so
full of sleep, and nothing else, that
he didn t think of whether any
thing had happened to anybody
else, and so he wasn't in any hurry
to ask Joe Reet if he had any news.
Of course Joe was just itching to
tell Blackie that Mr. Man was
planning to kill hogs, and to take
some of them and some other
things to town, but the news whs
so good he Could afford to hold it
back and just chew on it till they
got through breakfast, and Blackie
got ready to listen.
It looked like the rest of the
Creek Folks never would get
enough sleep, for even when they
had finished breakfast, washed up
the dishes, come out on the step
With the sun and lit their pipes, not
a soul had come in sight. Blackie
smoked for a while, blew a lot of
big smoke rings, looked a bit
dreamy, and then said:
'Well, Joe Reet, you don't seem
to have run into any news, yester
day. .Everybody must have slept
like I did, Did you see anything
of Hound Dog, Uncle Joe or any
There was no holding the good
news back any longer, and so Joe
Reel told Blackie all about the
plans that Mr, Man had made with
his wife, the day before. Joe sat
there and watched Blackie do
nothing but smoke and blow rings,
just like he hadn't heard anything,
Then Blackie's eyes snapped al
most, like Reddy Fox's, and he
said; "Going to kill two or three
pigs, as soon as it is cold enough!
Woof, woof, and here it is getting
cold enough to almost make this
old coat of mine shiver out here in
the sun. There certainly will
be a hog-killing at Mr. Mun's to
morrow, and I'll bet you a string
of bamboo berries a yard long that
ho will send a lot of pork chops and,
maybe, a ham or two to his neigh
bor Blackie Bear.
"Well, well, well. When the boys
get over here we will look around
in the smokehouse, and see if we
can't fix a place for Piggie to
sleep, for something tells me that
Mr. Man wouldn't think of killing
hogs without sending some of his
'fresh' to his big neighbor. It
certainly is good to live in such a
neighborly neighborhood, I won
der what in the World is the matter
with all the boys to keep them so
late." But here comes Jocko, and
from the way those bushes over
yonder are shaking, Doctor Coon
must be running to keep warm.

of keeping them moist: Pack as

This works well, even if the pack
