in behalf of the farmer. He related

Farmers of Cleveland county,
North Carolina's largest cotton pro
ducer were cheered yesterday by
the continued increase in price. The
climb of 81.50 prr bale did not hold
up, but the steady Increase wa^
heartening. The advance in price
was somewhat offset here, however,
by continued reports that the coun
tv crop appears to be in poor con
dition and is not developing as ex
pected. Numerous farmers said yes
terday that "well do well to make
45.000 bales this year” twhlch Is 21,
000 bales under 1931), while some
few said that the 40,000-bale mark
Would not be passed.
Still ('limbing
New York. Aug. 36—Coton futur
es climbed another $1.50 a bale in
the early trading yesterday, but
failed to hold the top level because
of heavy realising. The active posi
tion cloned 55 to 70 cents a bale
higher.
At the best levels the market was
about *3.50 a bale above the prices
at the start of the week. The rapid
ity of the advance naturally made
for profit-taking on the part of i
speculative .btfpeifc who feared a
technical setback.
Private crop reports again refer
red to weevil ravages, and there
was further encouraging informa
tion regarding demand for cotton
goods.
Cotton in its advance from the
low levels of June has outstripped
most of the other leading commodi
ties. A11 the future contracts are
now well established above the 8
cent level, as compared with a range
around 5 cents a pound a little
more than two months ago This
has added about $17 a bale to cot
ton values.
Washington, Aug. 36 —More than
$180,000,000 has been added to the
potential 1982 income of southern
cotton farmers by the advance In
price of the staple since June.
When the prices broke over the
eight cent level Thursday, It mark
ed a rise of more than three cents
above the June 9 low of the year.
Since that 4.76 low was struck, an
almost steady gain has been evident
accelerated by the department of
agriculture's estimate this month of
a short 11,306,000 bale ciop.
Figured on a basis of the June
low, the crop would have been worth
*269,082.000, unofficial tabulations
show, while at today's price It would
be worth more than $452,000,000.

HYENA HS f*HAM>EI>
AS HOAX BY PAJWR
Manor, Aug 26 -The McDowell
News published a story yesterday
branding as unfounded the belief
that a hyena has been prowling
around here at night, attacking
people and killing dogs. The News
states that some practical Joker
perpetrated a hoax on a local trap
per by tearing up his trap tfnd
leaving blood and hairs on it, as
though a huge beast had been cap
tured and then escaped
When the trapper told of his
trap being destroyed the joker said
that he had seen a wild beast lurk
ing around the night before and
that it had probably got in the
trap. No names are mentioned. The
joke got beyond control, it is stated,
and different people added to it re
porting that they had seen a hyena
at large. The News says thata semi
wild German police dog has prob
ably been killing the dogs and at
tacking people.

A damage action against th*.
Central csffe otf Shelby tried in
county recorder’s court here yes

ing the issue by saying the cafe did
not prepare food in an unwhole
some manner.
Two actions were originally
brought against, the cafe by R. A,

complaint was that the plaintiffs ate
dinner in the cafe on June 7 and
were made sick, it was alleged, by
beans served them, the claim being
that they had not been properly
parboiled.
Only one of the actions, that of
Callahan, was taken up as they
were based upon the same incident.
| The issue was. "Did the defendants
negligently prepare and serve un
sanitary, unwholesome and poison
ous foods to plaintiff?” The jury
answer was "No,” and the answer
ing of that issue automatically
cancelled the second issue setting
forth the amount of damage. It is
understood that $500 was sought in
each action. The answering of the
issue in the Callahan case by the
jury was also accepted as the an
