Madison County Farmers Clear Handsome Profit Offer of Free Seed Editor Hustler: Owing to the high prices of Burley Tobacco, and the con tinuedwar with Kentucky, far mers and the American Tobacco Co., I would advise all farmers of Western North Carolina to raise some burley tobacco. -It is no more trouble to grow than corn and it will pay from three to ten times as much. It has been thoroughly tested in Madi son county this past year and everybody was well pleased with the results. The river bottoms of Hender son and Transylvania will vgrow fine burley tobacco. You do not have to sit up with it, just hang in the barn or sed and it will cure itself. I will give all the seed the far mers want if they will write me at Barnard, N. C. Seed should be sown from 1st of Feb., to 15th of March. I do not advise the farmers to go wild over it, but plant an acre or two and try it If it is a good thing I .want our people to get the benefit. It has paid the farmers of Madison this past year more than eighty dollars per acre. R. P. Walker, Barnard, N. C. Irty Nev. Elsewhere in this paper Mr. George Stephens advertises for "bids on the labor in the con struction of thirty cottages at Kanuga Lake. As "showing the -unqualified success of Kanuga Lake Colony, it is interesting to note that everyone of these cottages is rented, for the full season, in addition to all of the cottages built last year. It was Mr. J. D. Boyd's birth day Friday; and it snowed. In fact it is a singular coincidence, but it always snows on that genial gentleman's birth day.

The monuments of Greecian art and of Roman virtue, the trophies of, the Gallic, and the Punic wars, the most holy temples and the most splendid palaces were involved in one common destruction. Of the 14 regions or quarters, into which Rome was divided 4 only sub sisted entire, 3 were leveled with the ground andV the remain ing 7, which had experienced the fury of the flames, displayed a melancholy prospect. Nero, it is said, enjoyed the with singing to his lyre the destruction of ancient Troy. There was no insurance institution in those days and Rome s loss was total and Nero's conduct reprehensible. Had he been the founder of the institution of insurance, his conduct, with the knowledge that he had been the protector fas well as the Emperor of Rome would have been excusable. IT'S DIFFERENT NOW!

State Board of , Health Practically Say So The town ' of Hendersonville will sodS be the proud possessor of a-water filter. y It will cost about $5,000- it ; is believed. Bonds for this amount will be sold, and as it is a matter of pub ic necessity, no election will be necessary before those bonds may be issued. The town authorities intended to pipe the water supply direct ly from the springs into the re servoir, but the State Board of Health said nay, it wont do. They claim the supply from (the springs would not be sufficient to supply the town in the good old summer time and that the sur face water and streams on the water shed would then be turned into the reservoir." The town council held a called meeting Monday afternoon at which" the matter was thoroughly discussed. , Mayor Staton, J. C. Morrow and J. .W. Mclntyre were ap pointed a committee to get the necessary information about cost, mode of operation, etc, of a filter, and to report-to the board as soon as possible. As the State Board of Health seems to be supreme in the. mat ter and as they insist on having a filter installed, it is said there is no way out of the matter ex cept to comply with their man date. ". ' . BUT; it does seem remarkable, as someone said at the meeting, that it should be. necessary to filter mountain spring water. And there still lingers, in the memory of manyt that justly, fa mous report from the State Board of Health which stated there was too much ALUM in Henderson ville water. Alum is used in filters, and the chemist analyz ing, that particular sample of Lwater evidently thought Hender sonville had a filtration plant! Merchants Association.

Hendersonville Can Afford to Hire a General Manager and Pay Him Fair Salary "A municipality is a corpora tion and should be conducted as a corporation." Therefore Hendersonville needs and should have a general mana ger, the feame as any other cor- uurtiiuu. - As Hendersonville is the !argfest corporation hereabouts, the man selected as " manager should be exceptionally Well qualified for the noaition and his salary 'should be commensurate with his responsibilities say $1500 or $1800 per year.. Mr. W.'A. Smith has long had this idea, and the following, from the Charleston News & Courier, i - tells of a Virginia city's profi- ile experience with a "general manager: ' . : " Staunton is now a thriving city of abdUt 12,000 people. Two years ago it discovered that, although the taxes were heavy, and . al though the best men of the town took part in its Government, there was much waste,-1 and therefore a general lack of effi ciency in the conduct of '. munici pal affairs. About ' this time people began to talk of the . com-: mission form of city government. Municipal, government in America-had become proverbially wasteful and bad. There was no concentration of authority. Some one of these good :Staunton citizens, suddenly discovered that after all a municipality. M was nothing more than a corporation, a general nianager were a gpod thing for a mercantile corpora- thing ior:a' municipal; - corpora tion as welL In the early part of 1908 Staun ton employed a general manager. He was to "make all contracts for labor and supplies and in gene ral perform all of the adminis trative and executive work now performed by the several stand ing committees of the Council, except the finance. : ordinance, school and auditing commit tee." In other words the general mana ger was to have chargeof all the administrative work of the city. Two years have passed. Staun ton now saves each year on coal bills alone almost enough-to pay the entire salary of the .general manager, btaunton m a year or two will be better provided with permanently paved streets than any city of its size in the world. Staunton has one of the best lighting systems in the country, and the cost is nominal. So, too, it has a very excellent water service. There is practically no department oi tne city that is not more efficiently conducted than ever before s in the history of the town, and more ; economi cally. There is no waste in Staunton. AH improvements are permanent and are corelated. ataunion is pernaps tne vest croverned city in America. . The success of the Staunton plan has been certain. This 'is clear to anyone who merely walks casu ally through the town. . . . : It will be noted, that by the Staunton plan the city council is not, eliminated. It decides ' on all questions of policy, making the money grants,' enacts muni cipal laws and in. general per forins all the duties of a legis lative. body. To it the general manager is answerable at all times'. It is the board of direc tors to. whom the general mana ger reports. There is no loss of popular control. .

Naturally, I am disposed to gratify the wishes of my friends in this matter, and when I find those who have cheerfully aided to my success aspiring to honors to which I might contribute in the conferring, it becomes a de sire todo so, but . I do not wish to appear indifferent to the con tinued, friendship and loyalty; of those' who express the hope that I shall succeed myself on the Commission, "Throughout.the State I have most cordial assurances of con tinued preferment, hence I hesi tate to announce my - determi nation even if I had made it i "We zn accomplish much for the public good in the near future, in my opinion,- if the present policy of 'the Commission to- wards permanent improvements. safety, increased facilities for t?eetraiitiic)ilveieff cieiscon- ; tinued And carried out "I. would,-of course . enjoy seeing" these things done.

A DESTRUCTIVE FIRL The new eight-room house of A H. Capps, at Pleasant Hill, was completely destroyed by fire, Tuesday' afternoon. Practi cally the entire contents were consumed also, and only a change in the wind saved the barns and outbuildings. Loss is unknown, but probably over $3,000, with no insurance. Origin of fire is a mystery. Mr. and Mrs.. Capps. spent the day in town, 'leaving only seve ral children at home. The blaze was first discovered by Samuel King, who, aided by Rural Route harrier Albert Williams, saved some few of the household goods and carried several oi tne cmi dren out of the burning building. Mr. Capps completed the house only last Fall,- and it is said it represented all his wordly posses sions. - "OVERLOOK'.' . (Dr. Ewbanks Residence) I ! : For Rent.
