Cotton picking it veil under way in Perquimans, after a delay of some days occasioned by the rainy weather of last week. Great truck loads of cotton are being hauled daily to the plant of the Southern Cotton Oil Company in Hertford, where the gin is running at top speed and the seed are being crushed in the manufacture of oil and other products. Peanut digging Is also well under way, and within the next few weeks thousands of bags of peanuts will be picked from the vines. Corn and soya beans will be gath ered later on also. The fanners are busy, and for many weeks there will be no such thing as unemployment in Perqui mans for those who can and will Work as laborers in the harvest. It is the busiest time of the whole year in Perquimans. As the .weather grows cooler every one moves with a quicker step. Honey begins to come into the hands of the farmer, the first he has received, in many instances, since he sold his crops last felL The laborers, too, the cotton pickers, the peanut diggers and the men who work around the peanut pickers, and others, chare in the proceeds of the crops. Trade with the merchants increas es and business in all lines is accel erated. New automobiles are sold, more gas and oil are consumed, more automobile accessories called for. Clothing for the whole family is purchased, and new stoves, house hold furnishings, coal and wood, more and better food is demanded. Yes, this is the busy time for our folks, the busiest and best time of all the year in Perquimans.

Be- approximately twelve years. A SENSIBLE DECISION It is good news that the new school at Winfall is at last to be built All arrangements have finally been made for the constructidn of the new pant.
