THE DURHAM RECORDER.
From Boxboro, Koute 5. . ' ' R. B. Holman, of Timberlake, gave the young people an ice cream supper a few nights ago, so Mr. Richard knows -how to please his young friends. Harris Ashley, of Morrisville, recently spent a few days with relatives and friends in this com munity, and Mr. Ashley had finished curing his tobacco, and reported' his crop to be very good. James Rogers, 'of Roger's store, Granville county, .is mak ing arrangements to move to his father-in-laws, Mr. W. B. Brooks, so be it understood Mr. James that we extend to you a hearty welcome to return to the Jand of corn for that is what we all need more of and cannot get along in the world without. We also need such old boys as Mr. Rogers in our community. A. H. Gentry, of Roxboro, route 2, stated that he would say every thing that he could in favor of the Greanville washer, knowing as he did the value of the machine. - The farmers are now trying to wind up curing tobacco, and are busy trying to save their fodder before the frost, for we had a few nights last week that caused both young and old to call for more quilts, and the old coats that had long been resting again came in to cervice. I recently saw a curiosity of a colored boy at Mr. T. D. Woody's, of Bethel HU1, as the boy went about on his hands and one foot somewhat like a frog. He has but one foot and leg, and bis leg and foot combined are rot over 12 inches long, yet' it would sur prise you to see how that boy can move around on his hands and his undeveloped and dwar fey looking foot and leg; and he can cut wood, use a hoe and ride horse back, as he seems to have well developed arms, hands and body, but is just about minus of his lower limbs. It has been reported that Mr. Richard Holeman expects to pur chase him an automobile when the Durham and Roxboro road is completed from the Durham and Tmmm linn ig T?wkWl iTA CAmA are predicting that road will not be of much service to the far mers as it will be a thoroughfare for the automobiles. I do not believe that the road will be blocked by automobiles as we don't have many Richards with long and heavy pockets. V. T. Gentry recently lost a good bee tree as some unknown possum hunters killed the bees and took an auger and boried out the honey and from the looks of the empty comb they must have gone away very sweet while they might have went to capture the honey for fun. The county line Primitive Bap tist Association will convene with the Helena Primitive Baptist church commencing on Friday before the first Sunday in October 1910. Doubtless there will be the largest multitude ever seen on the grounds of Helena as it will be convenient to get to by private conveyance and rail. I heard a good friend of The nrnrWsav that he liked the paper much better than he did a daily because of its regular cor respondence, he further ' stated that it was the letters from the different sections that attracted his attention for said he they were always men but them ap pear whenever they would, be cause they keep a person in formed about what was going on over the country, and gave in formation along most every line of progress. Messrs. Wesley Yarboro, of Hurdle's Mills. Dave Murdock. of Roxboro route 5, and Charley Brooks, of Brooksdale, recently lost one tobbaco barn a piece and some of their best tobacco by fire. The writer spent last Sunday morning with Mr. Jasper Yar boro and wife of Hurdles Mills and I cannot recall the lime when ! 1 ever enjoyed a visit better, atHjhas leased a portion of the "Fig I filled my appointment in the evening at Hurdle Mills, and it is a pleasure to me to preach to this congregation which is of the most intelligent and a' ' "ntive. Roper West Durham Route 1. . The "protracted meeting of Ebenezer 'Baptist church con ducted by Rev. W. E, Dunnegan and Rev. Rosco Conklin Crisp, resulting in a Cgreat mani festation of the spirit. On last Scnday morning the baptismal service was conducted by Rev. W. E. Dunnegan, the pastor, at Mr. Wade H. Cates'mill. At this service twenty four received the right of baptism, so by this act renounced sin in its various forms and made amends for their short comingsl. The lawn party given by the young ladies of Plesant Grove M. E. church was well attended as rwell as a great success socially and financially. The managers had arrayed many surprises for all those who came. One among the many surprises was a solo, "Cavalier Rusticana," sang by Mr. Dee Cole, one of the best baritone singers in the communi ity. Space forbids my mention ing all the surprising at this fete but we must mention one in par ticular, this was the speech of Mr. H. A. Neal, a young attor ney who will enter into the ac tive practice as soon as the fod der is pulled. The subject of this brilliant attorney was, "Ro tation of Crops." At the con clusion of this witty satire every body departed glad that they had come. Misses , Lauria and Olivia Breeze, of the Methodist orphan- en . m age at Kaieign, spent a lew weeks recently visiting their niece, Mrs. bterimg drowning. Mr. and Mrs. Cain Roberts was the host and hostess at an enjoy able ice cream supper recently, given in honor of the visiting young ladies of the community. Among the many pleasant fea tures of the entertainment was a cake walk accompanied by a piece on a banjo by Mr. Henry Hill. This innocent amusement was participated in by the fol lowing couples. Mr. Tabe Cates and Miss Carrie Holloway, Mr. Ed Umstead and Miss Vilna Bacon, Mr. Jim Douglas and Miss Lillie Cole. At the conclusion of these festivities everybody voted Mr. and Mrs. Roberts an ideal hostess. Mr.' J. M. Copley of Durham county who owns a farm on Dur ham and Caldwell road informs us that owing to the abundance of ticks on his farm he will not have over a 35 per cent of a crop of rabbits on his farm this year. One of our popular young men passed through this farm last Sunday to see his best girl across the mountain was attacked by these vicious insects. After reaching his destination he picked 67 ticks from his per son. People should bum off their old fields evry year. Mr. John F. Wadkins, of Hill's store, visited his father-in-law, Mr. S. A. Douglas last week in his new Knox white automobile. Mr. Wadkins is the most wealthy planter of his community. He Is very prominent'y spoken of as the next candidate for sheriff on the republican ticket. We predict if Mr. Wadkins consents to run he will be the ne::t Sheriff of Orange county. He is a Sun day school superintendent, an eloquent speaker, a fine cam paignman, a student of the law and in every way fitted for this position of trust. On last Saturday afternoon the Hill Billies of Sugar cHill and Sandflirters of Funston, crossed bats on the cow pasture diamond. TheFunston aggregation was a picked team from University, West Durham, East Durham, Roxboro and Burlington. The score resulted from this meeting of giants to the ratio of 85 to 46 in favor of the visiting team. Mr. Dave Teasley, of Funston, Tree Farm" from Mr. W. E. Copley and intends to move his interesting family to this farm November 1st. It will be re called by the older people of this community that Mrs. Teasley,' formerly Miss Mit Cole was a society bell of this community in the SO's, she having lead all the balls and clog dances of this com munity for several years. ' We welcome Mr. and Mrs. Teasley to their new home. Misses Lillie and Vesta Gar rard visited Miss Mamie Douglas last fifth Sunday. Mr. Dee Cole, captain of the Funston baseball team informs his immediate friends that after this year he will study law and hang out his shingle in Durham. We predict a brilliant success for this young man in his chosen profession. "The Moor's Dale Farm," owned by Mr. W. T. Neal and conducted for the purpose of ex perimeats in modern .ways if so called book farming is a complete success. Under the management of superintendent, Mr. London Pratt, B. S., Boston Institute Technology, he has wonderfully succeeded in reclaiming old worn out land. This year he has har vested from 10 acres of alfalfa 10 tons, from 15 acres of Timo thy 45 tons, from 60 acres of wheat he gathered on the aver age of 34$ bushels per acre. He has seeded down this fall 90 acres of hoiry betch. He has just completed a new feed barn of concrete material with a silo attached at a cost of $12,000, and intends to make this the best stock farm in North Carolina, as he already ha3 on hand 400 An- goria goats, 38 registered Jersey cows, 27 Deron steers. Mr. Wesley Tilley contem plates erecting a new $2,500 resi dence in the beautiful Tilley park. This, to our way of think ing, indicates the ringing of bells some time in the future, if noth ing else but cow bells. . f: The young ineu of the com munity have discarded the ordi nary bicycles, on last Sunday at church we counted eight of the new motor cycles. Such extrava gance as this is what is the mat ter with the country today. Sheriff Jno. W. Bacon, of Hill's store was in this section last Sunday shaking hands with his constituents and hauling the young ladies around what will happen next? At the residence of the brides father, Mr. Jesse Miller, Mr. Cheek Wadkins lead to hymenial altar Mrs. Annie Miller Jordan. While the bridal parly was pre paring to enter the parlor, Mr. Jno. Wadkins, the brother of the groom softly sang, "The Frog went a Courting." At the con clusion of this Mr. Charlie Hinds, a brother-in-law of the groom played Mendelsohns famous wed ding march on an accordian as the couples entered.
