erence. Chinese dislike moving
away from the graves of their an
cestors. When they do, they spare
no effort to insure that after death
their bodies go back to the land
of their fathers.
The wealthier families, often
with many members, live behind
walls rigidly closed to the outside
world. Several apartments gener
ally open on connecting court
yards.
Customs in China are some
times just the opposite of Western
customs. Thus white, rather than
black, is the color of mourning.
And despite the influence of West

dress remains the long blue cot

In North China, just a little to

Shanghai, in the delta of the
Yangtze River, is a great com
mercial center. The wide Bund
along the waterfront, with its
modem skyscrapers, is one of the
Eamous streets of the Orient. Farth
er up,the Yangtze lies the city
of Nanking, the capital.
Among the leading agricultural
products of China are cotton, tea,
wheat, rice, barley, corn, millet
and other cereals. Silk culture is
one of the foremost industries.
Pigs are raised everywhere and
pig’s bristles are a highly impor
tant article of export.
Nearly all the provinces of
China have valuable coal deposits.
In Shansi there are immensely rich
iron as well as coal deposits. In
addition, China has great petrole
um resources, largely undevel
oped. Tin, tungsten, copper, anti
mony, gold and other metals and
minerals are also produced. We
can see that China has great nat
rual wealth which will undoubted
ly play an important part in her
future development.

Record Number Of Pounds
Sold On Tobacco Mar
ket Yesterday
TABOR CITY, Aug. 20.—The Ta
bor city tobacco market sold a
record number of pounds for this
season today as warehousemen re
ported over 295,000 pounds sold for
an average of $47.00, according to
John W. Barlow, sales supervisor.
Barlow. Roscoe Coleman and J.
L. Lewis represented Tabor City
at a meeting of the Border Belt
Warehousemen’s association at
Mullins. S. C. Tuesday night.
The warehousemen discussed the
possibility of asking the other
weed markets to delay their open
ing sales for one week, in order to
allow the Border Belt houses
to remain open an extra week,
Barlow said.
The request will be made because
of the slow sales experienced on
the Border Belt during the first
week of sales. Barlow said a letter
had been drafted to Fred S.
Royster, chairman of the tobacco
marketing committee, asking for
a meeting of the 15-man tobacco
committee for August 30 to discuss
the proposal.
