Hendersonville, Thursday, August 17, 19 16
" If every manf woman and child in
Hendersonville will lend an effort in
promoting the extension of the season
here there is no doubt in our mind but
that hundreds of peope will be induced
to remain here several weeks longer
than they first intended.
The summer season ordinarily has
been entirely too short. We have tried
hard to begin the season sooner. In
this we rave gained a little, but the
most important point now is to ex
tend the season. Make September
October and
November the best
months in the history of Henderson
ville. A prominent Florida man said the
other day that Hendersonville should
be the leading stopping over place for
the rich winter tourists who go to
Florida after Christmas. There is no use
arguing that we are not prepared to
handle this travel. We have fine ho
tels, steam heated. We have enter
tainment, climate and everything es
sential for their pleasure.
Hendersonville people need to waka
up. Get on the job and work now
now while the people are among us to
wards making this the greatest wia
ter resort in "Western North Carolina.
Had Henderson ccuntj a farm dem
onstrator after the July floods there
is v. icubt. but that the farmers would
have saved thousands of dollars.
The Hustler has. maintained all the
"time that the county cannot well do
without a county farm demonstrator.
It was nothing less than a'calamity
when the county" commissioners failed
to see the wisdom in supporting a
government agent here, and now that
such a misfortune hag been sustained
by the farmers of the county, especial
ly those cultivating valley lands there
could never be a greater need for ao
expert on farming in the county.
In Rutherford, Polk and ether wide
awake counties the farm demonstra
tors are busy, working overtime dis
tributing seeds and rendering invalua
ble advice to the floorl stricken farm
ers. In Rutherford county alone the
demonstrator distributed S.OOO pounds
of beans, turnips, buckwheat and mil
lett seeds.
The commissioners could save the
county thousands upon thousands of
dollars, if they wanted to. Write them
a letter see them in person or attend
the next meeting and demand a farm
Last but not least is the tremen
ous rise in the cost of paper. Newspa
pers all over the country are making
desperate efforts in an economical
saving of waste paper. The big mills
claim that there is a shortage of raw
materials, on account of the heavy de
mands since the war.
Whether or not this is the true state
of affairs wo do not know; but one
thing is certain and that is that plain
newspaper which we use to buy. at two
dollars and forty cents per one hun
dred pounds is now selling or five
dollars and fifty cents per one hun
dred pounds. There are two things
almost absolutely necessary for the
average weekly newspaper to do in or
der to miss bankruptcy. They must
increase their rates for advertising
and subscriptions.
Another important items which is be
ing indulged in by many papers is
curtailing .the subscription list, only
keeping the lives ones on. This item
does not help the Hustler because for
the past few years not a subscriber
received his paper after his time ran
out. We have a strictly paid in ad
vance circulation and it matters no!
who the subscriber might be, if his
dollar is not forthcoming at the expi-
,ttl,un 01 nis time his name is
ped" off.

No corporation suffered during the
recent flood as did the Southern Rail
way company and particularly did they
suffer in Henderson county. Hundreds
of men have been working night and
day to open up the railroad to the
south where thousands of people were
waiting to travel in the mountains.
To those who really, know anything
about construction work it was re
markable the way the washouts were
repaired by the working crews. It is
stated by a man of authority that the
repair work is being made even more
substantial than before the flood. Tho
road up the mountain is being put
into excellent condition.
The heavy traffic both in passengers
and freight is working the railroad to
its fullest capacity. It is not a rare
sight to ee double headers pass Hen
dersonville now when they use to stop
at Saluda on this division.
Did it ever occur to you that every
job of printing ;-ou give us, no matter
how small it might be, is a big lift to
wards helping your home town news
paper and ultimately helping the city
in which you: live?
There are0 we know, many improve
ments to be made in the Hustler. We
have been growing steadily for many
years. Our job printing department Is
one of the prime factors in the growth
of the Hustler. The larger the reve
nue of the job department, naturally.
the niore efforts and money we can
place on the Hustler. Do not con
strue this as begging for your work.
We simply want to impress upon our
readers that the Hustler is more, or
less dependent upon its various depart
ments and by patronizing one depart
ment you help the other department.
Splendid Property n Jluin ' Street to

Eieien OTelock.
A public auction sale of real proper
ty of much importance is that of the
Hawkin's property on Main street
which will be disposed of Monday,
August 21, at 11 a. m. The sale will
take place on the grounds and excel
lent music wil be furnished for rue oc
casion by the Hendersonville band.
This is a splendid piece of property
and is one of the old landmarks or
Hendersonville. The tent show on the
grounds will not interfere with the
sale as the side curtains will be lifted
us so as to command a good view of
the lot. It will be a good investment
for some one and rumor has it that
promotoffe of a big hotel have an eye
on the property.
