The Point of View.
O' benzine car, to
thee we King!
Thou art Indeed a
glorious thing
A faithful friend
in lime of need
On hot night* with
try ripping speed
When not a breath
of summer .breeze
Is stirring midst
the wayside
trees:
When luckless folks are scorching hot
And cursing their confounded lot;
Wehonk our merry way along
With motors humming their glad song;
Refreshing breezes whistling by
We couldn't be warm should wo try.
Pull on the last degree of power
And push her ninety miles an hour.
O', benzine car. to thee we sing.
Thou art Indeed a glorious thing
To those who own thee.
O' benzine car. at thee we swear.
Thou art a tiend beyond compare;
A snorting monster set on wheels
To break the peace with honks and
squeals;
To dodge about with furious pace
Without the senso to keep thy place:
A high-toned thing that hogs the road
With an arlstocratlo load;
A buzzing, thumping box of noise.
With neither dignity or poise.
Whose piercing searchlights make us
blind:
No name that wo can call to mind
Expresses our opinion quite
When they loom up out of the night.
O'. benzine car, at thee we swear.
Thou art a fiend beyond compare
To those that dodge thee.

According to Uncle Abner.
Uncle Ezra Hicks says the putter
in'est job he knows of is bringing up
a turkey. When a young turkey gels
its feet wet it dies, and a young turkey
ain't happy unless It Is paddlln' In a

human nature in turkeys as there Is
In some folks.

Saving One.Fifth.
Oh, listen to tho good advice that's
handed down by old John D.
Who says that every man should save
one-fifth out of his salary.
If every one docs thst, he says, 'twill
soon wipe cut all poverty,
And in the world there'll not bo a

But here's the rub. and you'll agree,
that when a man lias gone and

The money that he's got for his coal

His meat and groceries and clothes

Thcro Isn't any one-fifth left to save.

Tho question of tho title to about

of Western Carolina Is Involved In ap?
peals argued 'before the Supremo Court
to-day In a combination of Fowler vs.
Union Development Company and

against the same defendants. It Is the
eld Cherokee reservation that Is in?
volved, or rather a multiplication of j
land grants Involving portions of then
lands following their opening to'sct
ments early In the nineteenth century.
Tho main question at Issue Is whether
It Is necessary for tho slgnaturo of
the Secretary of State nt tho tlrhe. the
grant was secured to appear on the
grants giving title. In some of tho
grants Involved tho grant Is signed
by the chief clerk for tho Secretary
of State and In others there Is only ]

Campbell, have fifed a bill asking J udgo
Gordon to enjoin tho Board of Su?

building the" macadam road from Moni?

This is tho road about which there

Here's a "Cure" For
Dull, Brittle Hair
"Careless or improper treatment of the
scalp so often results in dull, brittle,
'stringy' hair," says Mrs. Mae Martyn,
in the San Francisco Record. "This is
so easy to correct," she continues, "that
it is possible (or every woman to have
beautiful hair, and an abundance of it.
"A tcaspoonful of canthrox dissolved
in a cup hot water is sufficient mixture
for a thorough cleansing of scalp and hair,
and shampooing with this is a positive
delight. The canthrox mixture soothes,
invigorates and stimulates, and quickly
brings about a healthy condition, insur?
ing a plentiful growth of silky hair, that
doing it up is a pleasure you will thor?
oughly enjoy."
