turpentinj^boxes cut that winter
^ 1 so he would have money to buy
- corn. His tract of 440 acres of
land, was round pine, except
about 100 acre which had been
^ cleared for the farm. The first
..dipping of tnose boxes came off
I ip April, 1872, and he got four
barrels, a little over weight bar-
^ rels, 280 pounds, be made him
sejf, rolled them on his wagon
^and started to Fayetteville to
^selfit” He figured as he had
f planted his crops, and while it
j^was coming up and getting
- ^ready to be worked, he could
l^make a trip to Fayetteville pro»

very good conditiou, for 1 have
already said we had not made
much the year tiefore, but be
could not decline the nelgbborlj
.act There were no hardsurfacc
roads tnen, liut very sandy ones
Tlie five barrels of turpentine
'Weighed about 1.600 pounds, ann
.. our week’s supply of food anu
feed made the load.
The road we travelled passed
through what is now Pineburst,
and was a sandhill road sure en
ough. I should say 1 made ihai
trip with Father, and 1 well re
(member the exp rience- I’ht-
•^road for the most pan was very
sandy, as the weather was dry
tne sand was deep, it was hot
weather for April, and the over
burdened poor team had a barn
,pull cousiantly. And the horse-
.files were tliick as hail, a id near
- ly ate up the horses i kept
* .busy killing horsi flus all lui,
week, or tour and a half days ul
lit. Perhaps i killed a wagon loan
•of.horstfiies on that trip.
We were always glad of a
trip to h'ayetievilie, and a 1 le
member right, this was my see
uud trip to Fayetteville. But a
trip to town in hot weather.
' when the reads were so dry ai d
sandy, and the horseflies so bad,
waa not sp enjoyable as trips
made in winter, as most of them
were, so this was the only trip
we ever undertook in spring or
summer in a wagon. The mails
were carried all year around, but
tbe trips were made on , horse
. back or in a buggy, so the loads
were not heavy. And people
used to spread netting over their
horses when they made long road
trips to protect their horses from
One of the changes of late
years is tbe disappearance of in
sects, horseflies with many oth
ers.' You see just one occasion*

Corruption in the cond'ict of
elections is charged in Kobeson
county, so Judge NT. Sinclair,
who was holding court there last
week, ordered the gr.and jury to
investigate the matt! r. Afte'
making some effort to find out
something of just what wa^
done the jury made the following
report to the court*
“It appears to us that at sev
eral voting places in Robeson
county on June 2 and June 30
1928. the election law was free y
V Glared bv the use of monev to
purchase votes and by nse of in
toxicating drink around voting
places and on the highways to
secure votes, and it appears that
(here were .several fights in the
county on each of tht' la hove
dates, several of which occurrul
in and around our court house,
out it seems to be 7ery hard to
get evidence as to the names of
the parties who actually com
mitted the crimes. However,
we shall continue to try to get
evidence, and if we can uncover
any of the above crookedness,
we will make presentment at the
next term of court.”
A Bad Wreck.
As Mr. Eddie Bro k of the
Rock fish neighborhood with two
or his neighbor girls in his Ford
roadster were going home from
Raeford Saturday night at a
point on the Rockfish road near
Mr. Maultsby’s Filling Station,
he ran into Mr. Joe Edwards’
wagon and wrecked his car. He
naii an arm badly cut in two
places, and both young ladies
had an arm broken. All were
badly bruised. • The team was
outside the road, it is said, but
Mr Brock saw he was about to
hit the mules, cut out, and then
quickly cut back into the road
and struck the wagon—just did
touch it, but it overturned the
c ir and caught them beneath it.
