No wod era movement has taken. such firm hold on American mothers as the movement for "Better Babies." - "Bet ter Babies" contests in forty states have been given with the Companion's co-operation in the way of cash prizes, medals, certificates r of award, and, most Important ' of all, the "Better Babies" standard score card and other literature prepared for and furnished by the Companion. As a direct result of these contests, there has arisen a deluge of questions from mothers as to how children can tary is paid too high a price to. make of him a bill collector and the mem bers should be required to pay their dues without solicitation, excepting of course a notice regularly mailed" from the office of the secretary. 'Last year, I understand, the Ashevilla Board of" Trade, a thoroughly effec tive organization to which Asheville owes its present remarkable prosper ity, collected about $10,000 in mem bership fees. Of this amount $9,300 came to the secretary's office through the mails. The balance was collected by a paid collector. The secretary should be spending the time necessary for the collection of dues 1 in other work publicity and development, for instance. Finally, in my opinion the secretary must have the co-operation and the sympathy of every citizen in the community. The former means his success and the lattermeans more energy and greater activity on his part. Grit That Would Not Down. The American Magazine has been'of f ering prizes for the best letters en titled "What ; I Am Most Thankful For," and in the November number publishes the three prize winning con tributions. The following letter won first prize: .'.: . "Of all the blessings which I can count as belonging, to me this year and for which I am thankful, I ara most thankful that I have not lost my grit. '-:-a.;; y ; - ' "v:. ' - . "Eleven years o'f time and strength and everything we had have gone into the making of our 1160-acre homestead here in North Dakota; and yet; today, it we sold everything we possessed we could just about pay our debts. "A long series-of crop failures from drought and hail, and a much and well advised venture of buying a tracjtion engine whichthen did not work, and wgts eventually (but too late for our good) replaced by the company with a new one, have eaten up all we have been able to make.

Laying aside all little argumentative differences, our hat goes up in the aid and we shout, "Hurrah for Dave!" Waynesville Enterprise. School Situation. (Tryon Bee.) Quite a little talk has been occa sioned by the fact that the school committee has had to buy two stove to heat the school rooms down stairs In the, graded school building, when considerable money was spent in put ting in a hot air furnace and plafft when the building was built. It seems that the furnace, after three or four years wear, is so hopelessly worn out that it will cost more to re pair or to replace It than the commit tee can afford. The same state ap plied when the committee built the two unsightly out houses, $267.00 had been previously spent in building cesa pool and repairing toilets and drainage but the committee state that they can not now be used on account of faulty construction. The water sun seeps j into the cellar from the hill above and doesn't drain out. Hygiene, Department of Health, New York City. On the question of prepa ration for motherhood, Doctor Baker says In part: . - "When everything has been found to be normal, or the best possibleefforts have been made to make it so, the next most important duty is that of a calm mind, cheerfulness, and a firm faith in the. great joy . to come. Doctor Osier, the famous physician, ha ssaid that the master word in medicine is 'equanimi ty' He might have gone further and called it the master word for all of life's conduct, for never are equanimi ty "and even judgment needed more than when a woman must consider that her mental attitude affects not only herself. but another life, for the time wholly hers, to protect and guard. "Gossip of dire foreboding and old wives' tales shpuld never be listened to. Nine tenths of the stories of seri ous results are pure fiction, with no real basis of fact, however authentic they may seem or how' well supported they are by details. Science, has dis pioved utterly the theory of, marks and disfigurement appearing on the baby as the result of sudden frights or horrifying experiences of the moth er, but allowing the mind to dwell upon such stories may mean a lowered vitality on the part of the mother owing to the mental worry, and, con sequently, a lowered vitality and a dis turbed nervous system for the baby." i Big Timber DeaL Last week the Lenoir Lumber com pany sold 2,600 acres of fine timber l.mds in Wautauga near Shulls Mills to the Whiting Lumber company, of Asheville, the price paid being $72,500. This boundary of timber is consider ed the most valuable in Western North Carolina and the deal has attracted wide attention. Lenoir Topic. "Through it all I have been most thankful that I was able to keep my courage and help my husband keep his, as he bore the worst of the burden, be ing the provider and the one who had to meet and stave off creditors. "Now. when we are practically as sured of time (which is what we most need) to retrieve ourselves, we can stop and take -stock. "Against these advertisers we can say that for eleven years we have lived decently, not lacking either food or clothing which wa snecessary. "We have been bringing up three children in good and healthy condi tions, and we have had enough simple pleasures to keep us well and happy In spite of our troubles. "We have had sickness an daccidents but none were fatal. "When things were at their worst all I had grit enough for was to say that we are young enough and strong onugh to start in over again and make a success yet; because I will not doubt our ultimately succeeding. "I would keep saying to myself, We might be much worse off.' 'We might not have enough to eat or to wear or a good home,' or, most of all, we might have lost hope, under our mountain of debt, as "many do, and lapsed into a listness, ambitionless life with nothing ahead for ourselves or children; so 1 am most thankful that our grit has carried us through and has given us doggedness and perseverance enough to carry u sthrouh whatever more may come."

This is one of the best scenic routes to be found anywhere in the country, and this was one of the reasons for the route being recom mended by Mayor Bland and approved by Dr. Pratt Local Jokesmith. Dr. Guy E. Dixon says ne was out to Green River the other day and heard a preacher ask a little girl if she had ever been baotized. "Oh. yes. I've been baptised,' said the little maid, "here's the scar right on my arm!" Dillsboro and Sylva. (Christian Advocate.) Dear Brother Blair: I suppose I had better let the people know that we are still, living up here in the mountains and making some progress. We have built a new church at Balsam, one that would do credit to a much larger place than Balsam. We have just held a meeting at Sylva. Bro. J. J. Barker did the preaching and did it well. I think there was much good accomplished, though there was but three or four conversions. We hadto contend with two fairs and court dur ing the meeting. The people of Sylva pounded us during the first of the year and Dillsboro has recently poundetV us. May God reward them fo rthis kindness. W. O. DAVIS, P.
