THE ., EDITOR ' ,
As one ridel down t4ie country
lanes lrr Duplin, today hia.mulsdal
instinct immediately recalls ; that
famous. Southern song of recent
months '"Along , Tobacco Row.") I
wonder if the composer of this
song ever-renl'y .saw a- tobacco
row. 'As the '). mry goes, Stephen
Foster, com' .r of "Old Black
Joe", "Myr: M Kentucky Home",
"Old Folks At dome", and many
other Southern ballads, was' bofn
in the. North and never saw the
Southland.' 1.4 '

' ' With the opening of the Bord
er Tobacco JMafkets next Thurg-
' ' day a caravan of trucks, laden
with. the money weed, is expect-'
ed to be seen moving towards :
f. Whlteville and' Clarkton from
Dhplln County.; Growers have
been ., yery pusy during recent
vveeks harvesting and curing the
weed and are in much need of
some ready cash. The majority
of our tobacco, of course, Is. sold
on local markets, but 'the clolse
proximity' Of : Whlteville . anil:
Clarkton makes the temptation
too strong to wait another three '
weeks. - " 'jl .
. Smiles will be seen on the fa
ces of , many ' merchants .next
week too,: for with the opening
of the 1935 . tobacco season In
Carolina another year of Roose

State Highway and Public

that the road from, Warsaw to

Aiding their cause considerably
is Senator Rivers Johnson of
