' And now by gum it's friz You heard the Storm. King: lust Mon day night? Of cour-se, but you were safely indoors, and the bright fire, the lighted lamp and' all that made you quite iudifferent to his blusterir;s. - But how he threatened,- and raged, j and stormed! and sl the time he was preparing such a surprise for you! -When you looked, out the window, Tuesday morning, th once familiar scene had been tranfoftaed into a bit of fairyland. Tbe ugly woodpile was 'a softly-rounded mound of down. The gaunt fodder stack looked stately fand graceful in Its ; gown of whitr , while the barns and the sheds bad been given a coat of glistening fairy paint during I the night. :- - The stately-pines and cedars were bowed down with their dainty burden, and as you drove underneath their over banging boughs it seemed to you they were reaching out their great arms and were challenging yon to the finest kind of a snow fight. :- Then you looked for your old-time friends Sugar Loaf Mountain, and Try on Mountain, Stony, and Pinnacle.and behold, they top had donned garments of spdtless white and you, who had grown accustomed to their gowns of green and brown no longer knew them, until you looked again and saw they were the 'same .faithful' guardians, as solemn and friendly as ever, but more beautiful in the new dress brought them in the ni;jht by the old Storm King. Then jou came to town. And you found slush. Aud slush. And slush. And people standing around the stores, overcoat collars pulled up around their ears, recalling the storms of bygone years and how many cord3 of wood they had burned, and so on. Aad then the sun came out and soon most of the snow hM disappeared except high up on the mountains and you didn't know if you were glad or t-orry. But the Storm King did surprise you, now,didn't he? For the Hustler - The Old-fashioned Girl! By A. M. Huger - Not the irue girl, but Nt-w Girl, is the popular fad now; She's ashamed of her mother, and shocked at her dad now; In fact the old folks are dmretly kept hidden, Lest her beaux might discover old fash f ions forbidden; Bur, as fur me though ii may prove trie a churl, I'll coufess I prefer still The old-fao-hiooed Girl. The New Girl can lead you a . dance when she chooses, And a round-dance quite surely sh never refuses. If you doubt that your head can b turned in a miaute. Just risk the Wild Waltz. - and vou'l soon rind you're in it; Yet despite the delights of thi "wonderful whirl, - ,. - I confess I prefer sti 11-- ,; The old-fashioned GirL Oo.a drive iu a bugey where Two means close feqeezing, IMliionfess this New Girl is provok'iDgly pleasing, For She's not bit shy, and nuts bund ly reliance In what some might well call an En tangling Alliance; But despite tbe loud fact that it made my hair curl, I confess I prefer still . .

They rec ommend that on Matnjstreet and on An derson avenue the property owfeners be required to put down cement sidewalks in front of their property. - This is a move in the right direction, and th city authorities are to be con eratulated upon so progressive and for ward a movement. - The putting down of a good sidewalk, of uniform width, clear to the depot, will be a most excellent advertisement for tbe city. Complaints were many and bitter, last summer, over -the lack of such a walk, and the growth of the town demands this improvement. . Tbe city commissioners met in regular session on January 2.

The merchants of Hendersonville feel that they have but little to complain of these days. The financial stringency which has been embarrassing business somewhat in other parts pf the country has been but slightly felt here. Tbe banks have never resorted to script, as in Asheville, for instance, and at all times a depositor has been free to draw on bis funds to any amount. The Christmas trad locally was ex. ceptionally good, despite . those who thought to save money by trading in Asheville, and the local merchants feel they have no kick on that matter. But best of all, the farmer of Hen derson county have never been so well off as now. . " Last year (hja time, thousands of dol- ars of good money had been sent 'out of the county for feed stuffs. This year all this money is staying at home, and the majority have something to sell. -. If the proper effort is made, NOW, to advertise the town, next summer should see the accommodations of Henderson ville taxed to the limit, thereby ' afford- ng an excellent market lor all the pro duce the farmers, oi the county may raise.
