May 10, 1910, at the postoffke at
Farmville, North Carolina, under the
Act of March 3, 1878.
THE TOP ROUND BELONGS
TO US YET GREENVILLE.
Due to the fact that Farmville
had a block sale on the opening
and was unable to figure its av
erage until the block had been
cleared away, the Greenville Re
flector had the nerve to claim
for Greenville the highest mar
ket in the state before waiting
to hear from the real leader of
the past. Now Greenville, you
will simply have to take a seat
a little behind your neighbor?
FARMVILLE, for we still, hold
that record with an official av
erage of $26.55; anc^ this open
ing sale average was exceeded
on Thursday with a market av
erage of $27.52. Again you
have crowed a little soon Green
ville, and your little brother is
bound to call you. When you
reached the point that you have
been braging about with success
then farmville will take its hat
off to you in congratulations.
But remember old boy, Farmville
still holds this honor.
Breaks Record. Department of
State Colleded $282.
- 452.38 Pa& Year
Raleigh, Sept. 7.?Over a quarter
of a million dollars, which more than
doubles all previous records, was tun
ed into the state treasury by Secre
tary of State W. N. Everett during
the fiscal year ending June 31, ac
cording to his annual report just sub
mitted to Governor McLean. The ex
act amount was $282,452J!$ while the
?previous high mark, made during the
previous year, was $119,325-38.
The large part of the income came
in the form of corporation tax which
amounted to $225,673.22 as compared
.to $75,968.80 of the year before. This
unprecedented gain was due -to the
great increase in the number oif
charters granted and to the single item
of $130,000 levied upon tfie Carolina
Power and Light company at the time
of its consolidation and re-incorpora
tion. This is the largest fee ever col
lected by the office. **
Fees paid by foreign corporations
amounted to $25,117.20 as compared
to $9,521.18 collected the year before.
The sale of sumpreme court reports
showed a slump of over $3,000 during
the year. The revenue from this
source amounted to $7,780.78 as com
pared to $10,977.07 of the previous
