TO BE IX FUTURE, . - Local Builders Feel it In- the Atmos phere; Prospects Fine for Much , in Ilendersonyille. V A prominent lumber . dealer of the city stated to a Democrat representa tive that he believed that this Fall and winter would see more building going, on than in the last two years. This in formation couples with, that coming from circles of builders and contrac tors in' Hendersonville is to tne effect that construction activity is gradually getting around tcLa normal shape after a lapse of several, months. ."Following closely on the heels of a somewhat general report that new residents are drifting to Hendersonville with a fre quency that has not been paralleled for a long number of years is the state ment from reliable and responsible builders in Hendersonville that busi ness in their line is rapidly clearing up and promise is. that an unusual amount of work will be going on this fall. The character of homes now being built as well a sthe number both incline the contractors to the belief that their avo cation will resume its usual run in the course of a few months. Picklnsr up Rapidly. Probably no business .was more af fected by the war than that of build ing. During last Fall practically noth ing was done and during the Spring there was very little activity. The prospective home builders held off un til such a time a sthey could see what would be" the probable effect of the war on this country. With a return of more confidence, there is also no ticeable the return of much more tan gible evidences of prosperity. Building in Hendesonville is as yet not as ac tive as some of thetractors - and lumber concerns would like to see it, but the situation in this market is iden tical with that in the local real estate field, it is gradually-rising. People are branching out and retrenching less, going ahead with their plans without curtailing to such an extent that busi ness is entirely stagnant. ' ';. Laurel Park. Activities. Bungalows of character are being built in Hendersonville's beautiful sub urban park. Esepcially in evidence is the summer home of D. T. McKeithan of Darlington which is now under con 'strtfcQon. A number of lots were sold this season with fair prospects of. new homes being built this fall -and winter. "The people of Hendersonville have been holding back for many months until conditions could be adjusted," said a prominent observer of building activities to a Democrat representa tive. "They have determined to pro ceed with their plans. . They will find that it will pay them to build while prices are low on all materials and la bor is plentiful. I firmly believe that lumber will not remain at such low figures lone. Its bound to eo ud. I look for a considerable pick. .; up of small buildings within the next few weeks," continued this observer. Rev. P. G. Elsom is building a home on Third avenue, W., next door to Dr. J. Frank Cranford. B. Jackson will begin the work of moving one of his residences on fourth avenue so that it will face Church street. It is understood to be his plan sometime in the future, of constructing a modern business block on his pro perty on Fourth avenue. Dr. Guy E, Dixon has a force of men busy remodeling the Judson" college building which he Intends to occupy with his family this tall. . Staton & Rector, real estate firm re ports the sale of the residence of Joe McCormack to Fred R. Scofield. The consideration was $5,5Q6. This firm has just closed a deal of the old Stone place near Horse Shoe owned by K. G. Whistler to S. R. Goodspeed of New Brunswick, N. J. Mr. Goodspeed will move here with his family in a few weeks. BUSINESS MAN GIVES VIEWS ON MANY REQUESTS MADE HIM. States That He has. Average of 3 to i Requests Daily for Contributions for This or That. A prominent business man taking a few moments time from his busy rou tine of office work remarked to a Dem ocrat representative that he had on an average of three to' four, persons to Call UDon him riailv. fnr frp cnntrlhn- tion for some institution or worthy I purpose. He stated that some of them he was obliged to turn down. Others he felt that he 1 uuv give aa uiuw eta mc peisuu who asked it of him thought that he should. This same gentleman Is con nected with a large business instituion of the city and has had to pass upon some of the-many requests r for sub scriptions of that concern. He stated that in many instances those who asked could not understand why, his concern could not give a small amount. They did not realize that he was "only an officer In an institution handling other peoples money and that at the end of the year a profit must be shown to the stockholeds o ra reason why would be demanded. 'There should be a live associated charities or central organ ization in our city and I feel sure that the majority of the business men would contribute liberally if it could be un derstood that in giving to this they would be relieved from of the manv requests made during the year for such purposes," remarked the business man at the close of his interview. S ' ffi, T . The Star rejoices along' with . many of the forward-looking citizens in all walks of life in that the county commission ers have seen fit to put the county farm demonstrator back on full time. Messrs. Fulton, Palmer, 'and Borders show by this action that they have the best interests of the -county at heart and are ill in& to make the investment which is bringing such splen- I did results in better agricul ture. They have acted for the welfare o'f the people general ly and while demonstration work is nrimarilv for the aa- .sistance of those, engaged in various branches of agricul- : iure, it Denents the. business man,- the professional-man, and the laborer indirectly.; . Cleveland county Is coming, rapidly to the fore front in '. the various branches of farms work and this is due largely to i the dempijstratlon cam- . paign of the past. The price of a two-cent postage stamp which Is the average cost per j& per tax payer will not be felt -fe In the good old "terrace coun-' ty" of North Carolina, which The Observer calls us.-r.
