FRUIT ORCHARD IN MURPHY PROFITABLE Murphy, Sept. 9 (AP) —What seven years ago was a wilderness of brush and scrub tree® near Murphy, ip Cher okee county, is now a most attractive and profitable fruit orchard.

W. Sanders, county agent, said today, but heavy rains would do it much more harm than good. Curing goes on rapidly, and the early crop is turning out a fair qual ity of the leaf, but much depends on the weather from now on as to what the late crop will amount to. Very little rain has been experi enced her? in weeks, although a time ly shower several days ago afforded som/ relief and some help to the growing crop. If the quality here is as good as that in Eastern Carolina, the price is expected to be equally as good, but it is impossible to tell as yet what kind of grades will develop from curings of the crop that has not yet been taken In from the fields, and which inreality is not yet through growing. Cooler Weather for the past few days has caused the deteriora tion to let up slightly, but more mois ture is a necessity if the best results are to be experienced from the crop this year. Cotton, while small, has many bolls to the stalk, but there is need for light showers for that crop, also. Little hope is held out for the crop, much of which has been almost de stroyed by the long dry spell of the late summer. Garden crops have suf fered sharpely. and many late vege tables have been materially cut short because of the dry weather. Rains from this time on would help fall crops.
