September is almost here, and
with it grape season.
Many times in the past The Per
quimans Weekly has called attention
to the unsightliness of grape hulls

sidewalks. Not only are the grape
hulls unsightly, they are dangerous.
Pedestrians frequently slip on a
grape hull on the pavement and fall.
The suggestion is made that some
timely regulations as to throwing
grape hulls on the sidewalks would
be in order.

Notables flowed through our town
like water through a swollen storm
drain early last week All on their
way to Manteo, these impressive
names hardly slackened the speed of
their long sleek chariots as another
small town passed under their wheels.
That is all except one. This man,
probably the most widely known of
those who sped through wasn't in

arug store ana sit at a taoie sipping
a soda. Several people stood outside
the store, gaping at him and ready
to move out of his way at a moments
notice. Big genial Jim Farley should
have been in a hurry, it was late
Tuesday night and he was to meet
President Roosevelt in Elizabeth
City early the next morning, how
ever, there was no hint of a hurry in
his stride as he made his leisurely
way from the drug store. Just out
side the store he earned the ever
lasting good fellowship of those who
stood there as he halted on the
sidewalk and throwing up one hand
in greeting, exclaimed, "Hi fellows,
.t'iS a beautiful evening, isn't it?"
Everybody agreed with him that it
was a beautiful evening and later
agreed among themselves that Jim
Farley was a "great guy". Its easy
to understand now why the des
criptive adjective, "genial", usually
appears before his name.
It should appear in the classified
columns, but here it is. Wanted; one
congenial male companion and es
cort to accompany attractive Hert
ford girl on Nags Head week-end.
The other requirements shouldn't be
hard to meet, however, he must be
six feet tall or more, have wavy
brown hair, brown eyes are preferr
ed but blue ones will do, a fair
dancer and in possession of enough
money to enable the two of them to
attend a couple of Beach Club af
fairs. Quarters will be provided by
relatives of the young lady at their
cottage. Further information may
be furnisned by the writer upon re
quest. The time draws nigh for the
awarding of J. G. Roberson's Fish
Derby prize and so far Dr. John
Zachary is leading the field with a
twenty pound river carp captured
underneath the highway bridge on
Church street a couple weeks ago.
Evart Newby was angling from his
favorite spot there when the Doc
hooked the whopper and Mr. Newby
helped to land him. Tis said that
Mr. Newby, who does a iot of fishing
there, recovered several complete
tackles, numerous hooks and sinkers,
and several yards of line when Mr.
Carp was finally beached after, fur
nishing a fight to stir the blood of
any good sportsman. Of course the
statement as to Mr. Newby's recov
ery is a little stretched but it is a
fact that regular anglers under the
bridge have been losing considerable
hooks and sinkers to the giant carp.
The light tackle used here is just
not enough for their weight. And
believe it or not, the popular bait
is corn meal and a little flour mixed
M W; Hefreri 4:
with ordinary absorbent cotton and
wetted down to form a putty-like
mixture which js evidently a welcome
addition to the carp's regular diet.
Stop me if I am wrong, but I think
Herbert (Major and Loomis) Nixon
originated and developed this now
popular and very successful bait.

It's probably a good rule not to
race on the highway unless you are
sure as to whom you are racing with.
It might be a traffic cop.

City, hd to pay the costs, $15.15,
Tuesday in Recorder's Court when
convicted of the charge of reckless
driving. Patrolman Gibson was be
hind Mr. Evans on the highway one
night, not in the regular patrol car
but in his own private automobile,
when Mr. Evans went by. He went
too fast, thought Mr. Gibson, who
pursued him. According to the of

was doing between 65 and 70 miles
an hour and he passed another car

The patrolman was asked by the
court what the defendant said when
he was arrested. "He said", answer

Elizabeth City had been talking to
him about how fast his car would
run and when I started right in be
hind him, pushing him, he thought
that I was the boy."
Mr. Evans stated in court that he
did not know it was an officer be
Think how many drivers would be
picked up if patrolmen usually rode

Patsy, the charming little three-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
T. E. Harrell, did not accompany her
mother to Greensboro last week,
where Mrs. Harrell spent the week
attending a conference of home eco
nomics teachers. "Mother", said
Patsy, sometime after Mrs. Harrell
returned, "Next time you go away
