From An Old
Editor Hustler:
Among some clippings of v the
long ago I came upon the follow
ing which may.be interesting to
the readers of your, papers -
Respectfully, 1
Susan Pinckney Magwood.
Warm Springs, N. C
May, 1838.
The proprietor of this estab
lishment begs leave to inform
the public that he has made ex
tensive improvements during the
past winter which will add much
to the comfort and convenience
of those who may visit this
healthy, romantic, and delightful
summer region the coming sea
son. We would also mention for
the benefit of strangers as - there
is a wejl established White Sul
phur Spring near Asheville
which has also undergone ex
tensive improvements -during
the past winter. Persons :irom
South Carolina, North- Carolina
and Georgia who have been s in
the habit of a1 sojourn at tfie
Virginia Springs, over bad.roads,
may enjoy all the benefits of
such a trip in Buncombe -with,
much less labor, fatigue and ex
pense; besides all the bills of the
different Southern banks are
taken in Buncombe at par.
The stage line from- Greenville
via this place has changed hands
within a few months and the
present enterprising proprietor
promises to spare no trouble or
expense to meet all the wants of
the traveler. The Buncombe
road has never been in as good j
order since it was, made as at
this time. The proprietor as
sures visitors that no trouble or
expense shall be wanting on .his
part to render his House a place
of pleasure to all who may call,
and.to the invalid he would say,
the climate of Buncombe, with
the aid of its mineral waters,
will be able to restore him to
health unless his disease be in
curable. In conclusion I would say, with
such a climate as Buncombe and
the romantic scenery of its
mountains and rivers, with such
Public establishments as Flat
Eock, Asheville, Sulphur Springs,
Warm Springs and the inter
mediate hotels, few parts of our
country can boast of superiority.

We wish through this paper to
express oar sincere gratitute and
appreciation to ourlfriends in all

A shriek and a roar, and the
thirty gleaming knives, making
oyer two thousand revolutions
per minute, have bitten into ' the
huge,, bark covered jog and in an
instant; the long, graceful shav
ings rising in a blinding, protest
ing cloud, have transferred the
ugly tree trunk into a graceful
cylinder. A lever is moved and
two great steel blades, set at an
acute angle, in a massive iron
frame, move downward and
shape the white cylinder into a
symetrical porch column. - ' ,
From, the time the enormous
log is hoisted into positio n. until
it rolls out ready for the steam
vat, but 180 seconds have elaps
ed! ry
That's what they're doing down
at the Hendersonville Column
Company's plant -making solid
bored porch columns out of al
most any old kind of logs.
There are now about ten men
at work there. There will be
more soon. The machinery and.
the method of making the col
umns is most interesting. The
company is making it is said, the
best -solid bored porch column on
the market, their product having
several features, peculiar to itself,
which makes f it far superior to
any other. They are on the
market . for . green logs, for
which they offer very attractive
e I
"- The logs - are unloaded from
- .-- -.i.'-r
the car or wagon iin the yard:
Thejriare then loaded on a tram
car, run into the building and
unloaded directly in front of- the
great shaping machine.' Hoisted
into position, the machine,: with
its scores of rapidly revolving
knives, tears off the ibark and
shapes it into a graceful column,
of the desired diameter, from 6
to 12 inches. It rolls out the otlier
side, is clamped into the boring
machine, a hole its entire length
is made through its centre. From
there to the steam vat, where it
remains many nours, and from
there to the paint house where
it is painted and stored ready for
shipment. ' . ;
Underneath the shaping ma
chine is a chain conveyer which
carries the shavings from the log
to the furnaces, which uses only
the waste material of the factory
to generate the steam which
drives the great engine an in
teresting instance of modern
methods of utilizing a waste pro
ducta true economy.
The Hendersonville Column
Company is a most welcome ac
quistion to the town's commer
cial life. It has a payroll of im
portance now, which will gradu
ally increase. It affords a market
for quantities of logs, at very
attractive prices, ana its pro
duct is superior to that of any
other similar concern.
Competent judges believe that
Hendersonville and Henderson
county t his year will
have the biggest crowd
in thear history. It isi' said that
all available accommodations in
certain parts of the county . have
already been engaged ' for the
summer season. In town there
are but few boarding houses riot
yet engaged. Cotton is high, the
people in the low country have
the money and many, , thousands
of them are Coming to Henderson

Lee as chairman of the Demo

district is well oh. The re-
nomination of Representative
Grant by his party means that
the democrats this year must
again contest with the H ender
son county man for representa
tion in the Congress ; of these
United States. The people and
the press of the district evidently
believe that Hon. Wm. J; Cocke
of Buncombe is the nian to make
the race against Grant and in7
dications are that he will be
nominated and1 elected. The
press is most friendly disposed
to Mr, Cocke while the leaders
of the district express confidence
in his ability to redeem the dis
trict whenjaominated..
The Marion Progress in re
ferring to Mr. Cocke as the lead
ing aspirant for the-nomination
says that "we do not see any
thing wrong that he has done or
any mistakes he hasinade;neither
do we see a possible one he can

The Hayesville Herald "of Clay
county says that the nominee of
the democratic party must
vigorous, fearless, able and ac

able; that he must be a mixer
and a man filled .with enthusiam.
The Herald editorially says that
Cocke is the man. "He knows

"and we believe he will carry
the district to certain victory if
The Tryon Bee in Bolk county
speak highly of Mr. Cocke and
says that his record is perfectly
clean; that his democratic princi
ples arid manly manner commend

as one who would make good if
The Gazette-News of Asheville
(Ind. ) speaks highly of Mr.
Cocke and said that his announce
ment was a clarion call to an in
creasing number of friends . and
supporters and a challenge to
political foes.
The Waynesville Courier in
referring to Mr. Cocke's an
nouncement says: "The Courier
is of the opinion that Mr. Cocke's
straightforward presentation
of his position will mee.
a favorable response
from the voters of the
district." It further says "we
commend Mr. Cocke for hitting
the bull's eye at the first fire. "
The Sylvan Valley News of
Brevard in a strong editorial en
dorsement of Mr. : Cocke says
that if any "democrat can win
we believe it is W. J. Cocke; we
believe, that Mr. Cocke is the
most' available candidate."
The Bryson City Times of Swain
recently county said editorially
that "we believe a great ma
jority of the democrats of Swain
county favor Mr Cocke as their
congressional nominee;"- that
it is the opinion of v the Times
that the Democrats 'of the dis
trict could make no mistake by
placing their standard in the
hands of Mr. Cocke."
