Cleaning up Day- Would It notbe a good idea if the city authorities would appoint a certain day, orven two days, and request the citizens of the town to clean up lall the rubbish, tin cans, old bottles, and other works cf art that accumulate during the winter? The city could easily afford to fur nish the teams necessary to banl the rubbish awav. Other towns have adopted this method of cleaning up acd the results are entirely satisfactory. Hendersonville as a resort town will find that attention to details such as this will help make it still more popular with its thousands of visitors. The Axiditoriurv Gone.

O., THURSDAY, A PRIL 80, 19 0 8 Mayor Schenck receives a salary of $50 per month and jo fees. Mayor King's fees for the 11. months preceeding Schenck's elec tion avcraoed oyer $49 per month. Increase in salary to the present Mayor.less than one dollar per month. And his sal ary is not contingent upon the number of men he convicts, which is absolutely wrong in principle. The amount of turned into school tiind is double under the present administration of tnat of any pre vious administration, ' The blind tigers wernever so scarce as now, and it's the result of the energetic pur suit of the beasts by the present officers of the town. The present Board has been economical in the best sense of that much abused word, have been progressive.energetic and far-seeing, and their official conduct,' and the motives actuat ing their conduct have been a bove .suspicion. But Judge Ewart says the Mayor wears stripedr pants I Another Fire - at Balfour. John Carver's residence at Balfour was burned to tne ground Monday morning about three o'clock. Contents were a total loss. No insurance. Mr. Caxver is the engineer at the quarry, and is a most deserv ing and hard-working man.-. He has but one arm, and the quarry has been closed down for many months, throwing him out of that employment. With his wife he has been making every effort to support his large family, and this fire is an especially severe blow to him. This makes- the third fire at Belfour in . three weeks, each occurring on a Sun day. The first was Frank Mill's residence on April 5, then T. R. Barrow's house on April 12, and Carver's on 'the 26th. They say fires always go by threes and this is an illustration. Pants Paid For. At the republican meeting last Monday night, Mayor Schenck was accused of wearing striped pa trousers, we mean. His'Honor reluctantly f esses up4 and says the horrible allegation is true. But he also says they are paid for and that he has never been sued on a note of hand. If the uouaty commissioners would be progressive and energetic enough-to paint the cupola of the court house and cut down that unsightly water hydrant in front of the building they would earn a vote of thanks. They might do Jbls much. . Tomato Plaats Matchless and Pon derosa. loc per. dozen. . - Hunter's Pharmacy t spec'al to The Observer." " Tr.on, April 27. Lee R. Fisher, Wanted for the murder of ii. F.

Whitaker, pro prietor of the Laundry, Ice and Fuel Co., has solved the . water problem so for as he is concerned. He has had two wells dug on his property at the depot, and one of " them pumps water at the rate of one gallon a second or 100,000 galfons-per day. The water, is just absolutely pure crystal water, with a temperature of 62 degrees, and most pleasant to the taste. Thewell which is now in use is 101 ft deep is sunk through the solid rock for a distance of about 50 feet and has a six-inch casing to the bottom, thus insuring free dom from all surface water. Mr. Whitaker believes there is an unfaling and abundant supply of pure water underneath this whole country, and certainly he has tapped a supply which leaves nothing to be desired as to purity and abundance. This water is used in making ice and in the laundry. A visit to the laundry department, with its wonderful machinery and its piles of snow-white, spotless and sweet-smelling linens, is interest ing and instructive. Mr. Whitaker is adding new machinery to this department and this with his skilled employees, his personal supervision and the absolutely pure water used, is giving this laundry a" reputation which is extending beyond the limits of Hendersonville PROMPT PAYMENT Eugene H. Chisholm, of Char lotte, wasln town Monday adjust ing the loss on the residence and furniture of T. R. Barrows, re cently destroyed by fire. Mr, , Chisholm has the reputa tion of being one of the keenest and finest adjusters in the South. He represents the Piedmont In surance Co., of Charlotte, J.M. Waldrop and Son agents, and with Mr. Waldrop he visited the scene of the fire, came back, asked a few. questions, and made out a draft for that portion of the insu rance assumed by his company. He waived all technical points and settled immediately and promptly. The name of the com pany js the Piedmont Insurance Company, headquaters at Char lotte. It is a North Carolina company, of- the very highest standing, and J. D. Waldrop is it's local representative here. J. M. Waldrop and Son are the oldest insurance agency in Hendersonville, and have paid to their clients over $35,000 in losses in this county. CMS? It's difficult parts of Main to drive through street, just now, but who cares? These piles of rock, these hills of cement, the scores of busy workmen, and the finished portions of . the wide walks show that Hendersonville, beautiful Hendersonville, is awake and thriving, that it's citizenship believes in progress and improve ment and that there's no town we know of anywhere to compete with it.
