Una farmers are richer by severa" '
millions of dollars at tbe close of
business in 15)13 tlu'-n. they wete las
year, or auy other year sinc e the .'War;
according to a bulletin just issued by
tbe department of agriculture. The
total value of the tobacco crop for
the entire country for last year was
28.4 per. cent, greater than for 1912
Tbe largest increase was in the bright
districts of North Carolina, Virginia
and South Carolina. The price was
higher than, ever before.
According to the bulletin, based or
prices of Dec. 1, the following amounts
were received for crops in North Car
olina: Corn, $1S,C4S,0G0 against $42,418,000
for 1912. "''
Wheat, '$7,503,000 against $5,907,
000. '
Cotton, $45,5159,000 against $30,373,
000. . . " -
Tobacco, $30,9SS,000 against $17,
757,000. From the above figures it will be
seen that cotton was the only crop
that decreased in .value, while tobaccc
almost doubled in price, and the corn
crop was worth nearly three million
dollars more than the cotton' crop.
The Goldsboro Grocery Company is now engaged in the work of.
moving fromtiie quarters long occupied on West Centre street to
its own commodious and up-to-date building recently completed on
James 'street Just north of Dewey Bros.' foundry. This change is
highly indicative of the progressive policy and substantial pros
perity of the Grocery Company, when starting but seventeen years .
ago as one of the pioneer wholesale houses of Goldsboro, and
steadily keeping pace with the sturdy growth of our city, has ex
panded into a staid, reliable firm, serving not only a lengthy chain
of local' merchants b-d also holding customers over a constantly
increasing territory.
The company's new building is most advantageously situated for
conducting its great bulk of trade with despatch, facility and con
venience. ;
Extending frpm the railroad tracks on Centre street, a private
spur runs directly to the doors of its commodious "Vare rooms while
on the opposite side are suitable platforms, making the work of
loading goods iato delivery wagons or country merchants' teams
a matter of the" utmost ease. Of course these splendid facilities
directly redound to the interests of the Grocery Company's large
army of . purchasers, whose shipments can now go forward with
great saving of time and loading expense, as well as saving to the
company of drayage, which advantage is also shared with its cus--
; . -i . . . '
' "
The building itself is a two story structure large, and admirably
equipped with freight elevator service, accounting departments,
and display shelves of advantageous design and Workmanship.
From its first, beginning the Goldsboro Grocery Company has
. been under the" continual direction of Mr. Thos. H. Holmes as pres
ident, and the marked success of its career reflects the courteous
attention, sound business sagacity and commercial enterprise that
Mr. Holmes has exercised in winning for his company the enviable
reputation that it possesses throughout Eastern Carolna. , '
The Argus takes pardonable pride in the magnificent - achieve
ments of our felkrw citizen, Mr. Holmes, and his co-laborers of
the Goldsborp Grocery Company, and Is most sanguine in predict
ing for this" company even a wider field of patronage, now that its
:'"tieW6c&lbnffords all opportunities for Increasing the volume tf -
its business, and meeting every demand.
Goldsboro goes forward in every line of legitimate endeavorand
its wholesale trade commands a territory of patronage that ex
perience serves to augment and win and hold every merchant cus
tomer of other towns and country stores that once gives our city
a trial order.
We greet the Goldsboro Grocery Company in its new quarters
with the New Year, with all good wishes for continued success and
increasing patronage. '

Tragedy in IreueH County In Which

Statesville, Dec. 29. Katie Lou Car
ter, three-year-old daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Lee Carter, was shot and
instantly killed today by her five-year-old
brother at their home a few mile?
northeast of Statesville. The four
Carter children, there being two
younger than Katie Lou, had been left
in the house to play while their par
ents went about their work.
The oldest child, a boy of five, se
cured his father's shot-gun, loaded it
from a pile of shells on a table, 'and
with the muzzle near his sister's face,
pulled the trigger, literally tearing the
top of the little girl's head off and
scattering the fragments about the
room. When the tragedy was discov
ered the boy at first denied that he
did the shooting, but later confessed
his guilt without telling why he com
mitted the deed. "
"The Veteran" a Two Part Broncho

The Acme has a two part feature on
tonight that is sure to please, a
Broncho photoplay certain to endear
itself to many hearts. How often we

that the young people of toda yknow

picture, it brings back and. makes viv

express office, and finding it was no'
whisky threw it aside where it was
found. However, this supposition
seems fo be exploded by the fact that
the package did not appear to have
any labels other than those which had
been used before. No one filling the
description of the crippled man went
to the express office Saturday night
with a package nor was any package
received there like the one found.
Another supposition was that Kil
man, after preparing his package, lef
on one of the night trains. The ticket
agent on duty Saturday night does not
remember furnishing a ticket to any
one crippled.
It is known that the man had an
other wagon of a much handsomer
kind, neatly fitted with horn and
lights. About two weeks ago he wen'
to a local printer and ordered' a cut
from a photograph made with him
sitting in this wagon. That wagon
has not been seen here. Kilman was
going to use printed cards containing
the photograph in visiting the busi
ness men of the city, but he never
called for the cut.
There is a strong believe that some
one took charge of Kilman soon after
he left the Vanstory store and mur
dered him for his money.
