Tuesday morning at 11:00 with the

his Text 1 Chronicles 12:32, call
ing attention to the fact that here
were men who understood ' the

season. The Wallace market open
ed last week with the first crate
selling for $8.25. s-H '1
Warsaw berry buyers and 'mer
chants are pushing forward this
season in an effort to make War
saw one. of the States largest ber
ry markets. For the. first time Ith
is hoped that Warsaw will be an
open market. To date at least sev-i
en buyers are expected on the
market and possibly more. The
auction block is expected to open
" theclt plaUor ja-
cross from the Coast Line depot.
The auctioneers cry will be heard
every day. Warsaw is doing every
; thing possible to attract sellers to
I their market and city this season.
It is reported from all sections
of the berry area that 'North!,Cnro
Una and especially Duplin County
will enjoy a bumper crop of straw
berries and with the recent dam
age done to the Florida crop, gene
ral demand for the berries is ex
pected, to be good, therefore hold
ing prices up despite the large
crop in this area.
Mr. May, the new assistant farm
agent spent Tuesday and Wednes-
day of this week visiting berry
wps over the county, and reports
i'hat bushes are hanging with green
berries and just as soon as the
weather warms up the berries will
pour into the markets.
