After an ' absence of ' several
weeks ye editor again appears with
his column of News and Views '
About the - most ' conspicuous
thing around the County Capital
these days Is the tremendous Im
' provement being maed to the
Court House' grounds.' Through
the uiMrrlng efforts of the Ken
ansville Junior , Woman's Club
our court house square is rapid
ly becoming one of the prettiest
in the State. Your attention Is
called to the story on this page '
about what they expect to do for
the town Christmas. Citizens of
KenaasvXle and Duplin County
owe a great debt of gratitude to
these ladies for their interest and
splendid work. ,
' Yes, ye editor feels a little proud
over the telegram printed on the
front page of this paper last week.
Just how this all came about and
how Columbia Press Service found
out about our circulation, I don't
know. If vou 'didn't read it get a
copy of last week's paper and read

"You know, it"s funny how folks
around here didn't think there was
much to printing a newspaper from
hearing you, talk," was the remark
of a citizen or Kenansville tne otn

you have moved your plant here
they have changed their minds.
There's a heap of work to getting

Fellows if you like a little snort
better be careful and not mix it
with gasoline these days. Even just
a small drink doesn't go so well un

That would be bad, wouldn't it? Ik
would, but if you have no more res
pect for the other fellow than tc
mix it then they should be taken
awey. With the tremendous toll au
tomobiies are taking on our nign
ways it is my opinion that no pu
nishment is too severe for the fel
low who drinks and drives at the
same time: Incidentally, about the
most interesting advertisement
have seen in quite a while is the
new highway bill board showing
the officer with a little child in
his arras and pointing to the driv

"That sign' just goes all over me,
it makes cold chills run up and

It should make everyone feel that

Cotton Cards With
Should Be Turned In
It will be necessary for all cot

two-bale cotton Tax-Exem-

year to turn them in at the Coun
ty Agents office, says Mr. McLen
dm. The oroducer who has a
GREEN card cames under the two

Washington this past spring for
the benefit of the small produser.
All green cards are non-transferable
and cannot be used by a pro

ging this year's crop until the
cards are sent to the state office,
through the County Agents office

first as Beaverdam, before the

changed its nume to Magnolia

which there are still descendents
and relatives surviving, and some
