Readers, do not fail to read every word

t he gives prices which will cause others to
alculate closely when they draw theui
eives into competition with him. Jenkin

cord, and instead of fearing competition
ie actually courts it, as the columns of this

Will Not Fix Telephone Rates.
RALEIGH, Nov. 24 -The railway com
mission has rescinded alt orders fixing
rates for rental of telephones or ex
change service. There was argument
by John W. Daniel and others against
the fixing of rates. Attorney General
Walser gave the board his opinion that
it had no jurisdiction with respect to
telephone rates more than to make or
cause to be made just and reasonable
rates of charges for transmission of
messages by any telephone lines doing
business in North Carolina, and that
the commission has no authority to pre
scribe charges for the rental of tele
phone wires, instruments and ex
changes or use thereof.

C. S. Gadsden was again chosen presi

annual report was most satisfactory.
The gross receipts of the year were
$532,525.39, and the operating expenses
$343765.08. After paying dividends and
all other expenses, the balance at credit

THE EDELWEISS MYTH.
It Is Not a Eare Phant, Nor Does It Grow
at Very Great IlIeights.
It is commonly re'pornd c and is no
less commonly believed by the inexperi
enced tourist that edclweiss is a plan"t
which only grows in the most dangerous
Iand inaccessible situations. Of course
with it, as wvith any other Alpine plant,
this may now and then happen. But as
a rule it is found on rough and rather
stony slopes of grass, the ordinary pas
ture of sheep and goats, at heights rang
ing from about 0,000 to 8,000 feet
above the sea level. It is not of ten met
with below the former limit and seldom
above the latter. Once it could be
plucked-probably it has now been ex
terminated-by the side of a path a few
hundred feet above Zermatt and within
half an hour of the hotels. It was abun
dant, and no doubt still is, all about
the little inn at the Tosa falls, and it
may be picked in handfuls within a
couple of hours' easy w alk fromu the~
baths of San Bernardino. That it is a
great rarity is also an article of faith,
but this is another myth, 1t is dotubt
less a plaitt local rather than universal
in the Alps, but there are few districts
where it does not occur, often a bundant
ly. What has caused it to be so prized
is difficult to understand. it is an ever
lasting, but that is almost equivalent to
saying that it has no great beauty. The
plant attains a height of about four
inches, having ono or two ulOWers on a
stem. These are star shaped, a few
pointed rays down c-o'.ered, as if they
Iwere cut cat of pale gray velvet, sur
rounding twvo or three yellowish tufts.
The dry stemn and narrow leaves are
similarly coveredl. Its scientific name is
Gnapalimu leontopodium,. and the ge
nus to which it belongs has three or
four representatives in the Alps, one of
them, G. dioicum, being also abundant
on dry moors in Britain. It is, in short,
a flower quaiint rather than beautiful.
The edelweiss is an extremely easy
plant to raise from seed and should be
treated as an annual. The seed can be
obtained readily for a fewv pcnce from
any respectable nurseryman. It is, how
Iever, a very difficult plant to transplant
with any success. Sometimes the edel
weiss, when torn from its native moun
tain and set out in a garden, will have
suicient life in it to flower and then
pine away and die. This is the almost
invariable result of these attempted
It may be added that edelweiss, when
grown on anything like the sea level,
or, in fact, anywhere away from home,
entirely loses its distinctive character
and becomes worthless as a garden
plant. Perhaps these renmarks will save
some tourists' sponge bags from being
filled, wvhich, if they do not become
heated and die on the journey, will
barey linger long enough to enable the
proud owner to point to them as evi
dence that he has actually been to
