Donald was elected chairman of the

at a meeting held Saturday afternoon
In the court room at the county court
house. Other officer are Walter L.

That the granges of the state will
prepare and present to the next legls
lature a set of bills w hich .' will, If
adopted, divide the state Into sena
torial and representative districts.
eliminating the county representation,
as a county, and which will kill the
Johnson scheme" of bonding the county
for the promulgation of good roads
Inserting In Its stead one which will
reach the same end by another path,
is tho outcome of a meeting of the
state grange legislative committee,
which C. D. Huffman attended at Su
lem last week. He returned last eve
ning and announces that the granges
f the state want the state divided In
to districts. 30 senatorial and 30 rep
resentative districts, doing away with
the county representation as a coun
ty,;..- They believe this to be the better
plan and will use all righteous means
to further their belief and have it
enacted Into law
Another matter which was discussed
and plans formulated for, was the
matter of good roads. , Like every
other sect or body In the state, the
granges realize the vast Importance
of TZZiZ, muI lucy uo ooject to
the pending : legislation for a bill
making It possible to bond each coun
ty for road building. , They want to
build roads and pay for them as they
?o, by direct taxation or by liberal ap
plication of the road fund. If the
county can pay for but one mile a
year, this one mile Is all that should
be built. If five miles,',, then that
amount of road Improvement. With
out a doubt a few granges have much
logic to their reasoning in these two
phases of requested leflslatlon, and
they will promote their special re
quests with vigor.
Fruit Prospects Good.

and he comes home confident that thf
local crop will be moving smoothly be
fore Christmas. Though too early to
estimate a price, it Is possible, how
ever, to state that the markets will bt
