The Southern Democrat, November 14, 1935

Farm Program Favored By Voters

By a vote of 1420 to 977 the citizens of Blount registered their approval Tuesday of a farm program that calls for an appropriation of $4,500.00 annually out of the general funds of the county for the next five years.

The money is to be used to match State and Federal funds in the employment of a County Farm Agent, Home Demonstration Agent, Assistant County Agent in 4-H Club Work, a Stenographer for County Agent and Home Demonstration Agent and to pay for rents, fuel, water and lights for said officials.

Drug Stores To Close For Church Services

The Drug Stores of Oneonta, cooperating with the churches of the town, will be closed every Sunday from 10:30 A.M. until 12:30 P.M. They will close for the evening services at 6:30 and will not re-open until the following day.

The public is urged to co-operate and make their purchases before the closing hours so that the employees of the drug stores may attend services.

Reed Tidwell and his father I.G. Tidwell, of route 2, Altoona, were in The Democrat office Wednesday boasting about having on their table on Nov. 13, fresh string beans, fresh okra and fresh tomatoes, all gathered from their garden on this date. They say that every man can have a good fall garden if he will let his wife boss.
