Hendersonville in Dixie.
The following original poem was read
at the Board pf Trade meeting by our
fellow townsman W. A Smith, Esq.:
Dixie's land is a land of worth,
Land that's crowned with glory;
There's not her equal on the earth,
Her deeds may tell her story; '
We love her for her kings and queens,
We love her for her name,
We love her for her peaceful scenes;
And wars that make her fame.
We love her for what God has done
To make her good and great,
We love her for her worthy sons,
And for her rich estate.
We love her for her brave heroes
Who set our country free;
Who grew where patriotism grows
That spans from sea to sea.
We love her to her utmost bound, .
We love ber through and through. .
We'll sing her praise in loudest sound,
In rythmic tones that's true.
But when we come in sweet delight
To fix our love in place
And rest our eyes upon a site
That nothing can deface.
We'll journey far, we'll journey wide,
We'll travel east and west,
In order that we may decide
What country is the best;
And when at last we most sit down.
We'll arrange ourselves quite "fixey"
And have our home in Heavea's town,
Hendersonville "Dixie."
Mrs. Ellen Aiken, a most highly re
. spected and honored lady of Hender
sonville, died Monday morning. We
' hope to publish a more extended notice
next week.
The present horse show,to be held in
Asheville commencing April 20th, pro
mises to eclipse all others, uniformly
succeesful though they have been.
Many of our best people will attend,
and the officers of the association pro
mise a specially cordial welcome to the
visitors from Hendersonville. To
those of our society people who attend
invitations will be giyen to attend
the numerous balls and functions to be
held during the show. It will be re
membered that Secretary Randolph
and President Kowl attended our last
Jfair, and that a prize of $50 was offered
by the Horse Show people for the best
horse exhibited then. -The prize was
won by J. A. Bryfeon, who will exhibit
. his prize winner at the coming show in
Asheville. Jessie D. Beale, jr. is the
local representative of the Asheville
people, and he will be glad to gi ve all
infamation possible to - those who con
template attending.
Mr. W. A. Smith's suggestion : that
the city immediately fix the grades of
of all the streets, is a good one. No
property owner canbe expected to plant
trees in front of his place while there is
a likelihood of the grade being changed
and thereby being obliged to destroy
the trees. Fix the grade of the streets
by all means. "
Dr. Grinnan suggests the' Southern
Railway being asked to improve its
property around the depot by taking
the space now occupied by crossties and
sowing it to grass, and otherwise beau
tifying the entrance to the city. As
Dr. Grinnan said, first impressions are
sometimes most lasting. He also pointed
out the necessity of a train shed to pro
tect the passengers from rain in the
summer, when the big crowds arrive.
Both these matters will be presented to
the officials of the Southern.
Mr D. S. Pace, of Pace fc Carson,
said that in the summer as many as fifty
wagons a day left Henderson county for
the south, loaded, with produce, and
that naturally the money received in
payment was largely spent down there.
He advocated getting low rates from
the Southern Railway, on this class of
shipments, which would enable the
grower to ship by rail. It would bene
fit the Southern, the farmers, and the
merchants of this town.
Mr. Hal Ripley was signalled out by
J. M. Waldrop as being present for the
first time since he became a member,
and was called upon for a speech. It
was received with uprorious applause,
and made the hit of the evening.
Dr- Moray's report on suggestions for
beautifying the town was an epitome of
common sense and sound argument. He
advocated waste paper boxes on Main
street to contain refuse stuff, a modern
street sprinkler, stopping the waste of
water from hydrants, prohibiting mer
chants from sweeping their, stores and
offices into the street, and from throw
ing fruit, &c into the gutters. The
sense of the last meeting seemed, to be
that if the present ordinances were
ENFORCED the city would present a
prettier appearance than it now does,
and the matter will be taken up with
the Aldermen immediately, and many
of the nuisances abaited.
The meetings of the Board are more
than well attended. The room was
crowded almost to its capacity. Reports
are short and to the point, and there is
no more interesting place in town than
the Board of Trade on Thursday night
of each week.

Gifissng and
If you want to find out about the pos
sibilities of fruit growing in Henderson
county, go and ask Captain Toms what
be is doing along that line. And if you
want to see the captain get enthusiastic
just mention ginseng to him. '
Captain Toms firmly believes there is
no section of the South better adapted
to fruit than right here, and with some
others of our pnblic spirited citizens he
is pointing out to the farmers the road
to wealth along that line. He has about
3,000 peach and 7,000 apple trees now
set out, most of them in his orchard on
Jump-off mountain, within three miles
of Hendersonville. The trees are doing
finely. He has spent much money this
winter in combatting the San Jose scale,
and it is pleasing to note that he has
succeeded in eradicating that enemy of
the fruit grower. He says no finer ap
ples can be grown anywhere than
right here, but advocates a limited va
riety. In his case he has confined him
self to the Rome Beauty, Ben Davis,
Winesap and York Imperial. The trees
are free from danger of . frost, and the
only damage they are likely to suffer is
from a late freeze. There is an excel
lent market, at good- prices, and the
marvel of it all is that the farmers have
not gone into the business extensively.
The captain has also blazed the way
along another linej which, without
doubt, will soon be followed by many
others. He now has two acres of gin
seng, and only a few minutes talk with
him will convince you of his faith in
ginseng a a crop for the farmers of
this country. '
This strange root grows wild in the
mountains here, but the captain is, we
believe, the first to cultivate it on so
extensive a scale. These mountains
are peculiarly adapted to its prowth.
Ginseng now sells at seven dollars a
pound, with a good market for it. Most
of it is shipped to China, where they have
ten using it for untold centuries as a
cure-all. It must possess remarkable
merits, or its use would not have con
tinued for so many hundreds of years'.
Undoubtedly the medical fraternity of
the West will discover its medical value
before long, when the market will be
still greater. A prominent medical so
ciety in Chicago is now experimenting
with ginseng as a curative agent in
over one' hundred different diseases,
and the results will be closely watched.
Captain Toms says the plant presents
a beautiful appearance, waist-high, and
a perfect mat of beautiful, delicate
green. The amount which may be
realized from one acre is simply aston
ishing, and we decline to risk our repu
tation as a truthful, law-abiding man,
by giving the exact figures here, but to
anyone interested the captain will be
pleased to give full information. The
expense, when gone into on a large
scale, such as this, is heavy but a com
fortable living may be made from a
quarter acre of ground. Captain Toms
expects to make shipments this fall and
the results will be closely watched. It
is claimed that he has pointed out an
avenue of wealth to the farmers of the
country which should satisfy the most
"What I cannot understand," said
the captain, "is why some of our people
alio themselves to be talked into mov
ing down into the cotton mill section,
when right at their door lies infinite
possibilities along these and other lines.
The fact that over $30,000 passed
through the banks of Hendersonville
last month alone, in payment for ship
ped feed stuff of all kinds, forcibly illus
trates the fact that the farmers of Hen
derson county are. not even supplying
their home market. The farm land of
this county is good, the market is here,
at good prices, for all kinds of farm pro
ducts, and all that' is necessary is for
the farmers to avail themselves of the
opportunities presented to make more,
much more, than a comfortable 11 vine"
To leave this country to work in the
cotton mills, when an ideal home and a
good living may be had here amongst
these mountuins! x
These mountains! How infinitely
beautiful they are! The grand, dark
blue heights in front of us. With old
Pinnacle and Sugar Loaf 'standing as
sentinels over the destinies of this beau
tiful country. So beautiful it seems
almost like an enchanted country. An
atmosphere so clear one may see for an
indefinate distance. Table fields and
softly swelling hills on all sdes. Rivers
which look like molton silver from the
hights. A sky so brightly blue that
Western North Carolina is known al
most all over the world as "the land of
the sky." To leave the most magnifi
cent country God and Dame Nature
ever designed for man's use and solace,
with resources which as yet are un
known, to leave' all this for the un
healthful conditions prevailing in the
cotton mills of the South, is one of these
things which " passe th men's under
standing." Captain Toms has an abiding faith
in Hendersonville and Henderson coun
ty. He, and others of our public spirit-'
ed citizens, Mr. W. A. Smith, for in
stance, are showirig what may be done
in one line of endeavor: and we mar
look forward to -the time when thej
mountain sides will hi dotted h8r& and
there With fruit orchaftiaj and to that
time when it will not be necessary to
send ?30,000 in one month out' of the
county for stuff which may be grown
here at home. When that time comes
and the dawn of it is in sight, Hender
son county will enter upon a new era of
prosperity, and these first fruit orchards
and ginseng farms are its heralds.
A this is the season for prepar-
ation and planting the crops for
the present year, iuis uutuw w
given that another fair of the
Western North I'aroline Fair As
sociation will be held about the
Usual time in the fall. A oiur-h
larger and more various assort
ment of premiums will be offered
