Despite the hot weather, Lexing-
ton was well filled with farmers
Saturday and while good crops did
not seem to be the all important
topic of conversation still what was
said was not altogether discourag-
ing. Of course we are needing rain
but if it comes in the next few
days the yield will still be the best
of the past five years.
In bad or good weather Lexing-
ton attracts a good business; The
farmers like this as a trading point.
It is well that the business men of
Lexington should always keep the
interests oi the farmers uppermost
in their minds and invite their con-
fidence. since the life and commer-
cial future of the town depends on
the farmers* trade.
Along with the crops Saturday
the farmers and townspeople talked
a great deal of politics jind the ap-
proaching primary served the pur-
pose of some real wann arguments
pro and con for the respective can- 1<)yftlty t0 jlis
didates. Judging from the amount
of political porridge that was dis-
pensed Saturday, this is the warm-
est campaign that Cleveland coun-
ty lias experienced in many moons.
The politicians and campaign man-
agers have left no stone unturned in
