To say HendersonvHle miCk&fitS fifA gofiig to offer bargains on "dollar Tay- is very consvativ& for their reliability is so well Known that when they offer a dollar article for sale it ic worth the fulj value of this medium, of trade. So you, dear reader, are ad vised not to let one advertisement in this paper escape. .your careful read-in- for thereby you may miss the notice of the sale of the very article you most desire and have been wait ing to see offered at a bargain. To rightly appreciate 'dollar day' you 4iust study the advertising columns of jour paper or you will not be pre pared to take advantage of the dollar -ales. One man has asked, what is dollar day it seems to be a new celebration I am not familiar with? Some of the readers of the Hustler may not be very familiar with this plan of mu tual benefit, so a little story about a nearby town might be interesing, and give some idea of the plan of the sale. In Greenville, S. C, in July the, mer chants had a dollar day sale." It was well advertised, the daily papers were ful' of attractive advertisements and in consequence when the day of the sale came there were crowds of people in town. As one countryman express ed it. "it was like circus day so many people." One merchant said he . was offering a bargain in a ready-made dresses and long before time to open up his store, people were standing around the door waiting to come In. dress, another a dollar shirt 'walst.'l These dresses went like hot cakes al though their style was not so new as it has been a few seasons, back; but the material was good and they were fully worth the dollar; :.' , v'v V A drug store offered a . choice ' col lection of toilet articles and his clerks could ' ndf wait on ali the customers.. Each store had its special dollar ar ticle displayed besides their regular line of goods was put. attractively be fore this crowd of customers. ' . It was like an excursion to town or a real holiday to people from the sur rounding towns and country. Seeing one's old friends and mingling togeth er and looking over the bargains gave a day of pleasure as well as of profit, and the merchants decided thr,t the day had been so successful that they would offer equally as attractive in ducements to their customers another year and have another dollar day sale. This paper will carry 'to its readers tke account of the bargains offered on dollar day, and those in the surround ing towns and in 'the country and in Hendersonville are a3ked to read care fully these advertisements and be in town and on the street that day for there will be many doing their fall shopping early before the bargains have been all picked up and you would be glad to be one among the fortunate ones. - School Census Completed Shows Substantial increase A census of the children of school age residing in Hendersonville has just been completed, and shows a total of 773 white and 443 colored, both white and colored school subjects showing an increase over last year of 70 in each raire.

A. Burgess of the East Flat Rock Mfithedist church, who read a scripture lesson and made a most helpful talk to. the children. Rev. Mr. Green, of Florida, a superan nuated minister who spends each sum mer at his summer bungalow at Flat Rock, was also present and lead in a most appropriate invocation. Rev. E. L. Miller, of Greenville, S. C, a visitor in the community, gave a very inter esting talk and told the story of the hardships of school life in a remote inland section of Africa as told him direct from the lips of a missionary in that country. The comparison as drawn by Mr. Miller between that heathen, brutal treatment of children in the method of teaching them their few crude, bookless lessons of work and the happy hopeful opportunities of the schools in our christian land was most pointedly emphasized and it ap peared would subserve to awaken the latent energy of every child present and cause every heart to beat anew with determination to make the very best of his golden opportunity in school days. - ' Miss Sara Caldwell, of Newberry, S.
