What A Cleveland County
Farm Boy Saw In Capitol
(EDITOR S NOTE: The following
article, telling of a camping trip
made by agricultural students of the
Lattimore school to Washington,
was written for The Star by one of
the youths making the trip. In de
scribing his experiences, and those
of his party, he telLs of the many
things seen en route and in Wash
ington which are of educational
value to farm youths of North Caro
lina.)
(By WYAN WASIIBIRN.)
It is said that the farm boys do
not have the privileges, opportuni
ties and advantages of the boy of
the City. But this last week the boys
of Prof. Coley’s agriculture class of
Lattimore high school went through
an experience hard to match bv
many city boys. It was in the form
of a week’s camping trip to Wash
ington, D. C., the capital of our
great nation. Being designated, I
will endeavor to tell in part the
.things we saw and did on the trip.
The purpose of the trip was to
broaden our scope of knowledge in
regard to agriculture, to view the
nation's capital and to get a week
of real outdoor freedom and pleas
ure.
We left Latiimore school house
Monday morning and about 9:CO
bid goodbye to Cleveland soil for a
week. \Ye took the route via States
ville, Mt. Airy and New Market,
Va. to Washington. At Elkin we
were shown one of the finest
Guernsey herds of dairy cattle in
the South. The owner told us the
history, characteristics and advan
tages of the breed. He pointed out
that the Guernsey gave about as
much milk as the Holstein but that
it was just as rich as the Jerseys.
While in Elkin we met up with Mr
and Mrs. V. C. Taylor. Mr. Tayloi
was formerly our agriculture teach
er, but hs now county agent for
Surrey county. They told us quite a
few things of interest of their coun
ty and made us feel very much at
home. It was in Surry that several
of the boys got their first glimpse
of growing and curing tobacco.
North Carolina's secondary money
crop. Another thing of interest at
Mt. Airy was the granite quar.v
where great slices and blocks of
granite are cut to be made irt'o
magnificent buildings, bridges, etc.
As we begin to get farther anc*
farther away from the Piedmo-A
section and wind cur way vp the
slopes and over the top of the Blue
Ridge mountains, we begin to see
a marked difference in the meth
ods of farming. Instead of fields of
cotton everywhere, there were mere
patches of corn and tobacco in the
valleys, with orchards and pastures
on the hillsides.
Our second day was consumed by
the beautiful Shenandoah valley, or
the Valley of Virginia. The valley
is about 200 miles long and about 60
miles wide situated between the
Blue Ridge and the Alleghany
mountains and is one of the best
developed and most progressive ae
rictural sections in the Eastern parr
of the United states. On each side
of the road for miles and miles
were great fields of corn, hay and
clover. One thing noticed about the
corn is tliat the rows are as narrow’
as our cotton row’s and every way
you look at it you can see out the
rows because they have been check
ed. We saw hundreds of acres of
hay and clover. The pactures were
not of weeds and crab grass but a
mixture of timothy, orchard grass,
red top and Ky. blue grass. It was
a beautiful sight to see great herds

of Here fords or Black Arms cattle
half hidden in such a rich luxuriant
pasture. Everything save an atti
tude of general prosper:U. Every
farm had straight fences, the
houses, barns and out buildings wee
palmed, tlicre were tractors break
ing the deep rich sod, and wher
there were not tractors there were
fine draft horses. I did not see
but two or three pair of mules alt
er we left North Carolina. The ex
planation for this s that they use
more heavy machinery for their
type of farming than we do to raise
cotton. Then too t he homesteads
gave an air of old Virginia colonial
days. The houses were built on the
colonial style with white columns
in front, a long walkway surround
ed by a maise of flowers lending to
the highway. In the lawns arc
many varieties of shrubbery, great,
spreading oaks and tall elms, many
of which have long since past the

The Valiev of Virginia Is no!
without its history It was set tied
more than 200 years ago and all
along the way are markers show
ing the spot of some historical hap
pening. Just n few miles south c,\
Hillsvillc. Va. is an old stone shot
tower in which many bullets and
shots were made during the Civ.l
War. It is about 30 feet square and
probably 75 feet high. The great
sheets of lead were molded into
shot at, the top end by falling
through the air were cool and hard
by the time they reached the floor
This valley is also the scene of
some important battles of the Civil
war. The battlefield of the ramous
battle of Bull Run may be seen
from the highway. At Lexington wc
stopped a few moments to visit the
cemetery where rests the remains
ol the immortal Stonewall Jackson
As we stood by his tomb with bow
ed heads and knowing what char
acter guided his life, we knew that
he was (as he expressed it) across
the river resting in the shade. At '
Harrisonburg we saw a large poul
try dressing plant where about 10.
000 chickens are dressed and sold
per day. (
Though we„ North Cfrolinians
pride ourselves on our spots of
scienlc beauty, Virginia has some of
quite a little note. The Natura!
Bridge is truly a remarkabl; phen
omena. and the limestone caverns
with thetr xtalogamite and stalae
tilcs are amazing in their various
forms and colors. In one is what
appears to be a lake of diamonds
and as the light changes it changes
to meralds, rubies and many other
unimaginable colors.
Cards Of Thanks.
We wish to thank the good old
people of the Shelby jOotton null
and also Doctors Moore and Latti
more for their kindness toward us
during tha sickness and death of
our darling baby boy, Willie O. Mc
Neilly. May Ood's blessing rest upon
each and evary erne's heart and if
we don’t meet again here on earth
we hope we all meet with our lit
tle angel above where sickness and
pains never come.
