Some ,’Ot) yards betore reaching
the Rock House we stopped the car
1 tinri walked acios a cotton fi“ld to
a knoil covered with trees and un
derbrush and found ourselves in
what is known as the "Howser bur
ial ground." I have passed that way
■cveral timer, but never knew there
was a burial ground there before,
itie lirst of the fnark'ns ai.rac irtv'
my attention bore this iiricrip'-^n. j
"To the rneiury of Henry Row
ser, Sen., who departed this life j
: March 4, eged 66 years.” Ij
uspect tliat he was the builder o:j
the Rock House.
Next, we found this inscription or
a marker: "To the. memory of
Herr. IIow ter. who departed fills
I life Rug't. 13, 18*2, iged 43 veara.”j
! followed by ihc.e lines:

two stones here, one a duplicate of
the other.-The first was on old tea.. ■
stone marker with the lettering very
difficult to decipher, and a few feet
I away was a more modern 3tone or

! licate of tlie original lettering. Evi
I dently some of .the descendants of
■ the younger Howser had the old
marker duplicated when they saw
. the older one becoming too faint to
: read easily.
‘In memory of Cyrus J. Howser,
; who died Sept. 3, 1857 aged 33 years,
9 months, 23 days,’’ was on another.
; with these lines following: “Stop,
my friend an you pass by; A; you
are now so once v I. As 1 am now
"so you must be. Prepare for death
and follow me," Close by was the
grave of 'Tufam. eon of James SMd
Cynthia Nobles. Died Jan. 8. 1839.
"Happy infant early Mess'd; Rest
in peaceful slumbers rest, Early
rescu’d from the cars, Which in
crease with the growing years." The
marker at the grave of Christenea
Howser shows that she departed
this life Oct. 30th, 1856. aged 98
years. John Howser died Jan. 24.
1832. aged 45 years. Mary Howser
died July 14, lbio. aged 49 years
Her epitaph reads as follows:
"Farewell my children scattered
Whilst by your father’s side I lie. j
When Christ appears I Lhen shchj
And see you with immortal eye.v'j
There are quite a number of other
'graves to be four a in the Howser
burial ground, but I had to hurry
on. The Green Chevrolet was soon
over in Cleveland county, N. C., and
presently passing into a cross road
we drew up at Shiloh A. M. E. Zior.
church. We locked all around at the
ides of the churc hand back of it.
but we could find no evidence of
any graves of white folks there
bouts and after a hunt of ten or
fifteen minute,, gate it up and
te.rted back towards the battlc
round, four miles away. Presently
v* found a colored woman who was
a drawer of water at a well by the
roadside and we stopped to ask her!
if she could tell us where the old;
Shiloh graveyard was. 3he could j
and told us that it was down acros: I

church. I> was late: but not ex- I
reeling to get back that way again*
^oon 1 determined to gj back and I
back we went. Oh. yes, it was east ;

church. Just anybody could see •
It is different from many old bur
ial grounds. It wasn't grown up in
high weeds and underbrush and
scrub trees. It was in a fairly clean
condition. It evidently receives at
tention from folks who have rela
tives buried there.
We easliy found the marker at the
grave of Colonel Frederick Ham
briglU, for which purpose we had
made the trip. The stone bears this
nscription: "In memory of Col.
Frederick Hambright, who departed
this life Mar. the 9th. 1817, in the
90th year of his age. "Adieu to all
both far and near. My loving wife
and children dear; For my immor
tal soul is fled, I must be number
ed with the dead.'*
Close by is another marker beat
ing this inscription; “In memory of
Major Frederick Hambright. Died
Aug. 1st, 1844. Look here you see my
sufferings have been great; But now
they're through. I bid idieu &

it. There are others who are par
j ticular about the kind of work they
i do and the price. Some of them are
j still demanding pay for labor on the

j work was plentiful. There is some
1 thing to be said about the price of
fered for picking cotton and there
I is also something to be said about
what the farmers can afford to pay
considering the abnormally low
price of the staple But the general
feeling is lack Of sympathy with
one who does not take work when
It Is a matter of getting bread with
ou' too much haggling about the
price, although u must be admitted
that the worker may leel at times,
and has a right to feel, probably,
tha' employers arc taking advan
tage of his need to compel him to
work, lor less than a living wage.
Incidentally the pea pickers who
reiu.sed to work for half thr peas
packed were without excuse One

But in the matter ol the workers
and a living wage, here Is a concrete
case, and It comes from the gover
nor of North Carolina, a citizen of
Cleveland cototy, where the unem
ployed a ere condemned for not ac
cepting the cotton picking Job at
20 to 2d cents the 100 pounds. Inci
dentally in this piedmont section
the average picker, especially the in
experienced, would not everage
much over 100 pounds a day. He
would do well to gather 150 pounds.
The people who pick 200 and 300
pounds a day in this section are ex
ports who do that on a spurt. They
don't average that amount
But to the Gardner testimony.
Governor Gardner was speaking at
Chapel Hill and he was talking
about taking punishment Hear
“Let me give you a concrete il
lustration of what I mean by tak
ing punishment. The governor of
North Carolina cannot fail to learn
about the conditions ot the people
of this state. The unhappiness, the
financial and personal distress from

a continuing stream passes in re

• occurred in Wake county. North,
Carolina, last week.
"What is that to me. I wonder if
1 you are not asking yourselves Well.
I If it does not disturb you today you i
j may be assured tt will disturb you j
The average for these pickers
'was 150 pounds and their average
pay for a day’s work was a fraction j
over 37 cents--for picking 150
pounds of cotton—which was at the
rate of 26 cent' per hundred. Count
i ing food only, each of them had to
iget three meals out of the 37 cents
an average of a little more than
; '2 cents per meai. They would be
, better off if they could get thr
three meals furnished for ihc day's!
That is the other side, and it is,

Chesterfield tobaccos — both Turkish
and Domestic — are mild and ripe, the best
that money can buy.
And the way Chesterfield tobaccos are
blended and cross-blended is like making a
new' and better-tasting kind of tobacco, with
greater smoothness, more mildness and a more
