WOLF-DOG KILLED An animal which had been killing goats near Catawba Falls was killed last week and the bod brought to Old Fort. This animal resembled a dog, was red in color, with a low j heavy set body and small pointed ears. A noticeable characteristic j that attracted much attention was j the soft fur that covered the body J instead of hair. A similar animal! I which was killed by a ranger in j Yancey county last year, and the; body sent to New Jersey, was iden-i tified as a cross-breed, possibly part: dog and part wolf. r" NEEDLECRAFT CLUB MEETS Mrs. Henry C.

Harris, Jr. brought forth quite a few laughs with their remarks as end men. A minstrel could never have such out standing singers as did this—Mer ill Kanipe, Woodrow Harris, Guy Grant, Mr. Smithey, Gaston Rhine hardt and J. R. Harris, Jr., were certainly good in their songs, and as for forgetting the "Pain Quar tette" that would be impossible. i A very neat sum was realized from this project.

Greene enjoyed a trip to Mount Mitchell on Tuesday. Beautiful Venice Of all the beautiful %cities in the world none can rival Venice and its lagoons. Artists and poets of all ages have felt the charm of this unique city, where genius and nature have met to create a perfect harmony. The square of St. Mark, with its basilica scintillating with gold; the solemn lines of the procurate; the ducal pal ace ; the Grand canal, with its marble palaces, whose decorations seem copies from the famous laces of Burano and Torcello; the churches and bridges, and the gondolas slipping silently through the water—all arouse in the visitor intense emotions and admiration. "Itching Palm" It takes a lot of people to make a world. And people of all sorts, in all walks of life, unfortunately are said to be possessed of itching palms—that is. hands ever ready to receive a bribe. That this is not a distinctively mod ern tendency is indicated by the fact that even in Shakespeare's day it was a symptom well known—if we are to judge from the number of recorded in stances, one of which is in the bard's own Julius Caesar, 4. The phrase itself is an allusion t<» the superstition that an itching hand is a forerunner of the receipt of money.—Kansas City Times. Voice of Envy At a dinner one of the speakers was exceptionally long-winded. At the end of half an hour the irascible chair man could stand the flow no longer. He clanged his bell violently and the orator was so surprised that he sat down without completing his last sen tence. A guest sitting next to the chairman whispered with a sigh, "I wish 1 had a bell like that at home." Not Expected Bobby, on his fourth birthday, was sitting by the window with his mother watching for the postman. Bobb\ turned to his mother, and said: "Why. mother, the postman won't come todaj because this is my birthday." "But what of that?" asked mother. "Well, you said he wouldn't come one day when it was Washington's birthday," replied Bobby. Don't take Ota nees. be When You buy Aspirin look (or the name BAYER There is a way to be SURE about the Aspirin you buy. Look for the name BAYER on package and the word GENUINE printed in red. It's your guarantee of purity, safety and reliability. Genuine Bayer Aspirin is what the doctors prescribe. It relieves pain promptly, harmlessly. It does not de press the heart. Relieves colds, head aches, sore throat, pam from various causes. Read the advertisements. It pays. ( Keep Your Money in the Bank Are you troubled by having your money "burn a hole" in your pocket? That is a common fault of mon ey. If you have your money in the bank, whether it be much or little, it will not burn any holes and it will be there when you need it. Money carried on the person is a temptation to spending. Money in the bank does not offer this temp tation. You may hesitate before writing a check where you would not hesitate to spend it if you had the mon ey with you. We offer you the advantage of our banking facili ties and invite you to open a checking account with us. THE BANK OF OLD FORT OLD FORT, N. C. J. S. BRADLEY, Pres. F. M. BRADLEY, Cashier P. H.
