house circles of Fannville. Buyers
?have been on tbe alert, auctioneers

had a new gleam of eye and falm?
ara bave bad Christmas money to
?pend. And when farmers spend
?Boney Far ni ville merchants wear
genuine Taft smiles.
Burley day gave new thrill to
ju, market, and Mr. Joel Watkins,
af Appomattox, looked the personi?
fication of contentment when he
'eceived from the tobacco grown on '
me acre a fraction over $208. '
Some farming does pay. Other '
formers have been getting over I
