MRS. JAMES GIDEON FULFORD |
Mrs. Mamie Fulford, 54, widow of '
the late James Gideon Fulford, at
4:00 A. M., Saturday, March SI,
peacefully slumbered, as her immor
tal soul was wafted back to whence
it came, as her lips failed to lisp and
the/ heart stood still, as the eyes clos
ed in external sleep, surrounded by
her three children, Mrs. Clara Tug
well, James and Gideon Fulford, and
others, who stood around and silently
whispered farewell to "Mother."
Mrs. Fulford before her marriage
was Miss Mamie Harris, daughter of
Richard Harris, of Farmville, and his
wife, Mrs. Josephene Evans, of near
Greenville, all pioneer citizens of the
State. She was a member of the
Methodist Episcopal church at Bell
Arthur, joining at the original Beth
lehem church at Tysons, in her early
years of youth, and was a most de
voted mother and friend to the poor,
always willing to lend a helping hand
or speak a word of sympathy to any
she chanced to meet, and few that
knew her failed to love her. Though
poor in wealth, weak in health, she
was rich in sympathy and strong in
endurance, and hope in time of de
"on on invalid for nearly four
years and was a great sufferer, al
though patient to her fate, and be
fore her death she had a vision, which
seemed to arouse her so much she
called her friends and family to her
bedside and outlined her funeral
rites, which were carried out as near
as possible, even to her shroud and
by a Methodist minister. She even
named the day she would be called to
To mourn her passing she leaves
three children, two grandchildren,
four half brothers, Ruel, Peter, Floyd
and Robert Harris, of near Snow Hill;
three sisters, Mrs. Frank Bearaan,
Mrs. Alonza Carraway, Mrs. Dora
Carraway, of Greene county.
Rev. H. L. Hendricks, Methodist
minister, of Farmville, conducted the
funeral services and interment was
made in the Parker burial grounds
near Tysons church, Sunday after
noon. May her exit from this earth
be just an entrance into glory.

a better FERTILIZER for better times
"TAST YEAR I used 3-8-8 for tobacco and
JLa it proved superior to 3-8-5," says
S. E. Harrington, of Ayden, N. C. "For the
last 10 years I have never used less than 5?]o
potash in my tobacco fertilizer, good times
and had. My first experience with 8% potash
for tobacco was in 1930 and you could tell it
to the row.
"Potash holds your tobacco on the hill after
it ripens and saves losses from burning. When
tobacco ripens normally you can get a barn
cured out before you are ready for the next
one. This is one of the best things extra potash
"My son, Edwin, sold five acres of tobacco
last year for $1,775.70. It was the best crop on
the place. It was fertilized with 3-8-8 and the
average yield was 1,254 4/s pounds per acre.
"I have used extra potash on both light and
dark lands with good results. You have to
judge your land and the amount of fertilizer
to gftt the crop you want."

bacco growers hare found that it does not
