( Sunday morning the president, Mr. Supple, received two calls con cerning this same horse, and Hu mane Officer Davenport responded to the call, taking along two wit nesses, and killed the horse. People who saw the horse say it was ont\ of the most terrible* and pitiful sights they had ever scon in horse flesh.

Cheatham in his automobile to lor r.-ston and Nash Monday afternoon Arriving first at Forreston, the news gatherer first met Caloway Tate v.ho owns a fine big black land farm and a beautiful home nea' i Forreston. We understand Mr late i bus lately purchased another farm [ rear Nauh. There is no better clti- . ren than Mr. Tate and his large ac quirement of rich agricultural land it Kllis county is proof he not only, is an A1 farmer, but a financier of j i rto mean ability. Next we met Ira j Phelps, who, as ostial, was busy. Ira Has the largest general mercantile establishment in Forreston and has lately opened up a furniture store j i>, an adjoining building, where is to he found up-to-date furniture of a general line. Next we met Klnio Kdiiiondsoti, who conducts a general ine-chundise store for Mrs. Huguelet. Then A. T. Trull, who conducts a s' da fountain and barber shop at his place of business was next seen. Mr. Trull, as usual, wore one of those smiles that is natural to him and was it^ul to shake the hand of the newspaperman. W. W. Bohan on, grocery dealer, was visited and the reporter met his wife, Mr. Bo hanon being engaged with Tom For rest in a celebrated game of dominos, whom we met later. N. B. Newton, the Forreston druggist. Mas met at his nice store, who was very cordial. We also greeted President Hamlin of the Forreston State hank. This hink is one of the live wires of For reston and is a potent factor in the welfare of the town and surround ing country. The Forreston gins and cctton yard are getting their sha-e < . cotton. Altogether we saw noth ing that would Indicate other than a p’osperous condition for the splendid i itizenship that reside in this hust ling town. Nash was next visited, passing along by T. O. Cheatham's farm. This farm consists of three hundred acres, ail in on" body, atf fine land as offn be found in tha county. It is well drained and seldom fails as a dividend producer. Cooney Marks and Will Toilnget are the men who run this far if) and no better or hard working men and more deserving are found. The cotton on this farm will make a half bale to the acre and if old crimp bolds off a few weeks K tiger, no telling what the cotton on this farm would amount to. for the cotton tis full of young bolls Anil blooms. Tarrying a while at the onj.v general merchandise stove at Nash, owned by J. M. Pruitt, the newspaper man met a few more ac quaintances. Nash has lately erected a modern school building, and the enrollment is about seventy pupils. Prof. H. it. Gludley is principal and he is assisted by Mrs. Lucy Adkins, who teaches the intermediate, and Miss Lu)a. Satterfield, who teaches the primary departments. I’nder these competent instructors the j ;< ! ■ o • >! is getting along nicely. Nest' we visited the Farmers Gin compa ny at Nash. Hero we met C. II- j Murks, who tuns the gin stands.' and Harris Loyd, sampler and • weigher. We were told this gin would gin about 150'i bales this season, against 2000 bales last sea son. This decrease is due to a smaller yield to the acre. The I stock of this fine plant is owned by farmers, principally of that neigh borhood. All along the trip cotton pickers were busily engaged picking cotton, cud most of the cotton fields we saw has considerable cotton open. The recent frost seems to have done vtry little dumage. for as far as the eye could reach the fields were carpeted with green vegetation, as in the spring time. Cotton is still putting ou and a great mauy blooms wore, noticeable. We enjoyed the company of our host and the outing was exhilarat ing. Nash was for many years tlie home of .Mr. Cheatham and the ties of friendship and farm life are still with him and he frequently makes visits there, just to see the Iwiys and walk over the farm. Twenty Cent Cotton Is almost a certainty, at the same time coal man is a-kiug only $£.00 I to $K.5o for his coal Should coal 1 advance according to price of cotton and wjieat. you would pay at least' #17-,f>n per ton.
