Among* the beautiful trees re
cently cut in Buncombe were the
Dr. Gwaltney elms that stood as me
morials to a beloved saint, whose
wish it was that long after he had
passed into the Great Beyond, the
saplings his hands had carefully
placed should spread their leafy
shade for the passerby, and Bun
combeites feel that something very
sacred has been forever lost.
Other trees planted by hands long
since folded in death have been sac
rificed with the elms, so tradition
loving Buncombe truly mourns as
a Rachael, who cannot be comfort
ed since the trees that were her
pride are not.
