Largest Crowd Yet Attends
Revival- Mrs Dixon Heard
\\il’e of Noted Baptist Divine 'fells
of Her Conversion in England
Attendance Over 2,500.
An attendance that far exceeded any
night since the big tent revival b<
f.-an on LaFayette street, gathered'
Sunday night. at the eighth service
when Dr. Zeno Wall preached on the
abject “Working by Weeping." It
,,!] of J)r. Wall’s ministry, it was the
greatest hour of his life. Scores upon
i cores of mothers arid fathers came
forward asking for prayer for their
unsaved children and friends, showing
a deep concern over their spiritual
welfare. The interest in the meet'eg
is constantly growing and Dr. Wall
and Mr. Padgett are more than pkar
od with the fine response and the hi.
tcrest in the Lord's religion. On the
first night of the revival the attend
ance was around 2,500 people. Sun
day night it far exceeded this num
ber. Parking space for curs was not
tu be had for several blocks and hun
dreds of people could not get seats
under the large canvass arena but
listened intently to the song and
praise service. 'Jfl
Singing continues a great feajturo
of the meeting. Each night there is
• onic special music and those who at
tend go early to enjoy this part of the
revival. On Sunday night a quartet
from Kings Mountain gave two ex
cellent numbers while 11. M. Pippin
of the First Bapust church rendered
a soul-stirring solo. Each night as the
meeting continues, new vocal talent
is added, bringing beautiful message,
in gospel songs.

her conversion. Mrs. Dixon is ah Eng
lish woman. Her father was an evan

which time she has given her life
to evangelism and missions. She was
married to Charles Alexander Chan

at being for the first time in the
county that gave birth to her husband

holds to ihe Old Book where the peo
ple believe in prayer and Scriptural
revivals. She* was astonished at the
large attendance and at the intenst

Merchants and business men have

Autos In Crash
Here On Sunday
Two autos came together in a whole
some jostle on the highway just be
yond the Marion-Warren street V at
five o'clock Sunday afternoon. One of
the cars was from Charlotte, and the
other was a Ford sedan of the Clev
eand Springs filling station.
The latter was driven by Roy Ve.it,
and amongst the passengers was s
small child, who was hurled through
the window by the impact. The child,
whose name could not be learned, was
not seriously hurt.
The accident occurred, according to
Chief of Police Hamrick by the Ford
cutting Into Warren street ahead of
the approaching Charlotte car.

and neither one is regarded strong
enough to get more votes than all the!

an agreement to the contrary, a plur

Dry Spell May Have “Silver Lining
Says Department of Agricul
Raleigh,—-The drought which ex
ists in most sections of North Caro
lina and to a more or less extent
throughout the entire South Atlantic
may, after all, have a “silver lining'
at least for the cotton farmers.
It may mean that a small crop of
American cotton will be produced th:3
year, with relatively high prices for
the ginned cotton to make up for the
low prices of 1925 when the bumper
crop was ginned.
i m.s ,vas pointed out hero today o?
Frank Parker, crop statistician.
Mr. Parker suggested to individual
North Carolina farmers that they
need not I c discouraged simply be
cause the drought has hit them, be.
cause other farmers in most sections
of the state and generally through
the southwest are faced with the same
problems. At a result of the dr>
weather, poor stands of cotton nr-;
being reported almost all over the
South Atlantic, Mr. Parker said.
“In a -rip last week,” said Mr.
Parker “tr.iough the principal cot
ton belt of North Carolina, we rare
ly found a field with a good stand.
Only occasionally had any chopping
been done. Thousands of fields had
the seed still lying ungerminated in
the soil. No grass was growing, ns
the fieldes were all too dry and in
many olac-os cultivation was unnec
Cotton farmers, Mr. Parker added,
may be interested in these facts:
“This world consumes ab ut 14,000
000 bales of American cotton annual
ly. There is a relatively large cir.
ry over ft. m last year when over 10,
000,000 bales were produced. It was
that carry over which drove the or;ce
down (incidentally, the decline was
out of nil proportion to the excess
production.) The price for the pres
ent crop will be more or less than the
present price, depending upon wheth
er the ^respective production is less
or more than 14,000,000 bales. It is
to our advantage to make a siur.ll
crop. When the farmers will pot do
this for themselves, it is probably foe.
lunate for nature to take a hand in
reducing the production.”
Asa result of legislation passed, the
farmers '.his year must rely on pri
vate estimates as to the probable pro.
duction. until late in the snason.
While Mr. Parker himself does nbt
think that as a rule the final crop
can be reiiiyjdy reported earlier than
August, he pointe-^out that last year
the North Carolina reporting ser
vice on July 18 estimated the final
crop at 1.080,000 bales, and on Aug
ust 1, at 1,110,000 bales, as compared
with the 1,101.200 bales finally
ginned in North Carolina.
