Mr. Stirewalt lives on Solomon Yost’s place. It rains and it rains and it is warm, rainy weather. No work can be done by the farmers and quarry men now. If a railroad company would build a railroad along the granite belt the company would soon make a fortune hauling granite for the granite contractors, and several hundred more quarries would open up along on the gran ite belt. There will be a fa, so, la singing at Faith Easter Monday at 10 o’clock a. m. at the Lutheran church. Everybody is invited, both old and young. Come and have a lively time and bring all the old time books you can. The Watchman is getting up a big list of subscribers for this section. Good times and items from all is the reason. Twins, both boys, jo.st arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lu ther Fisher’s. Our section can’t be beat for twins. This is the eighth or tenth family here that lus twins. Other new arrivals, are a young gentleman granite cutter at Mr. and Mrs. Charley Misenheimer’s; a gentleman at Earnest Wilhelm’s; a younggran ite cutter at Albert Brown’s; a young lady at Mr, and Mrs. Tom Hess’.

The first one was 3 months and 14 days old and weighed 162 lbs, second one was 6 months old and weighed 219 lbs, and the third one was 7 months old and weighed 229 lbs. He says his success was due to good stock, regular feeding and good dry beds for the pigs to sleep in. Who can beat that? Baxter McCombs has moved into his new residence here.

J- T, Yarbrough and family visited the commencement exer cises at Bailey’s school house Fri day and report an interesting pro gramme. To-morrow, March 27th, John Hedrick, one of our neighbor hood’s most highly esteemed young men will be married to Miss Nellie Young, one of Davidson county’s fairest daughters. They will reside at Mr. Hedrick’s coun try home. The family of our head-pumper is contemplating ‘an extend visit to the Land of the^Sky. Our Trading Ford correspondent seems to be qnite bumfuzzled on account of the high price of land. Don’t be cynical old pard, we have no way of making any more land and the population is increasing very rapidly,Jin spite of your shat tered hopes, and the land adjacent to Spencer will hold up buildings as well as any in the United States. One of our valley poets, in a letter to his dulcinia, explains the high price of land. Here is an extract: My Dearest Sallie, You are in Burton’s alley, I’m in the Yadkin valley, This peaceful valley. Do not treat my proposal with scorn, I’m in earnest, sho’s you born ; We can raise no end of corn, In this fertile valley. What do yo dread? Come and let us wed, We can raise our bread In this magnificent valley. Here discouragament sickens, Creases grow to beat the dickens, We can raise chickens In this beautiful valley We always have plenty of rain, And lots of other things to make us vain, We can raise cane, s In this lovely valley. Why do ye tarry? | Come, and let us 'marry, / We can raise the very old Harry, In this peaceful valley. When the South gathers the works of her poets, our laureate of the valley will not be forgotten. And who can say that the price of land is exorbitant? Except old batchelors who always take 8 pessimistic view of every,, thing after their gills begin to dry up. The Genuine Uncle Tom. [Now won’t you be good?—Ed ] TIPPETT-TOWN. March 30. Well, I guess you all will be glad to hear from Uncle Josh, as he is a new beginner. Hope he will meet with success. I don’t think the fruit is hurt very much by the cold wave. Mrs. Thos. L. Pool has been on the sick list for some time, but is now greatly improved. M, C. Parks’ assistant black smith, H. J. Miller, has returned to Boston, Mass.

Little MissChallie Mahaley has returned from a three, weeks visit to her sister, Mrs. J. T. Gobble,' of Spencer.

Waller, of Spencer, is on the sick list and is visiting his father, Thos. J. Waller, of this place. L. A. Mahaley will leave in May for New York city, where he will live in the future. We Are sorry to lo&e him. Uncle Josh. ROCKWELL. The Holshouser mine is now starting up. Machinery is being put on the ground and work will begin soon. The farmers are late this year with their-crops owing to the wet weather. Harry Wyatt and family have moved to Mount Airy where Mr. Wyatt has a job of granite cut ting. We wish them well in their new home. L. L. Fesperman, who has been sick since Ghristmas, is about well again. We are glad to see him out.

The whooping cough is in and aroundRockwell now in full blast. Those who don’t want the trou ble had better stay at home for a while. I will send some new subscribers to The Watchman in this letter and will be glad to send any others who want to get a good paper for a little money. Long live The Watchman and its editor. SlWEL, TRADING FORD. March 81st, 1906. Few men realize what a blessing it is to live while others fuss and cuss because it rains a little. The majority of the peaches have been killed during the recent ice, but we may expect 'some ap ples yet. Venus is still ahead on reports of weddings about his town, but don’t say anything, we will come by and by. It is announced that there will be a basket lunch sale at Bethel on Easter Monday night. The baskets will be sold by auction to the highest bidder. The funds will be used for church purposes. We notice that the political ma chine has begun to move. It seems a little early but the Bible says be merry today for tomorrow you may die. Walter Feezor has bought him a forge and anvil and says he will blacksmith until the weather gets better, then he will farm. Several of our people went to Spencer and Salisbury Saturday, not withstanding the mud. Look out little ones, rabbit time is coming and he will have red eggs. We hope to get our store. The Original Sam Snort. ROCK. March Blst, 1906. J. R. Stadlar, a good farmer liv ing on one of J. F. Park’s farms, killed a pig, less than five months old, which weighed 152 pounds. The road, or street, in Faith is so bad people can hardly get through. The county ought to help Faith. Farmers expect to plant a good crop of cotton and corn. ,T. M.
