Hendersonville, Thursday, Oct, 12, 1916
We have come to the conclusion
that one man does not know any more
than another when the war will end.
"How do you keep moths out of
clothing?" a correspondent asks of an
xchange. Hide the clothing from the
moths, is one way.
According to treasury officials, the
average life of the $1 bill is about six
months. It lasts a good deal longer
than that when it falls into the hands
of some men.
It is the height of folly to worry
over something you cannot help. It
takes up much time, and is wearing
on the nerves. If you can help it do
so forthwith and thus the cause of
much worry will be removed. If you
can't help it; let it pass.
It is altogether unnecessary to send
money away from home for what you
want when you can get it here in
Hendersonville. Money spent at home
helps your neighbor, and your neigh
bor helps you? Did you ever stop to
think how dependent we are upon one
another, in alj the relations of life?
no man liveth to himself. He would

Testifying in a divorce suit a New
York- woman admitted that she some

The finest thing we know to write
about this week is the new developed
plan, already advancing at full speed
all over the country, for a Woodrow
Wilson Country-wide celebration Sat
urday, October 29.
It is the plan to have Mr. Wilson
send a message to Demoerats through
ut the country which will be in the
nature of a Proclamation of the New
Every Democratic State and County
Committee is expected to promptly
co-operate with the Democratic Na
tional Committee in maVng the cele
bration the great success which it can
easily be made to be and which it al
ready promises to become., for the
suggestion is meeting with the most
enthusiastic approval every v, r .re.
Descriptive of some of the day' ' inci
dents" and events is the following:
From nearby points delegations will
go to Shadow Lawn to receive the
message in person; but to the more
distant centers the telegraph will con
vey the message and state and county
committees will vie with one another
in their respective localities to render
the day a red-letter one in each com
munity. Not only will there be flags
flying, bands playing, banquets and
speaking, but open-air meetings are to
be held wherever feasibly and the
work accomplished by a Democratic
congress, through the President's in
fluence and4 inspiration, recited and ex
pounded to audiences that assemble to
do honor to the day.' At these gather-
Two years ago there were more than,
elghiy golf clubs in the immediate vi
cinity of New York. The .number has
increased largely since that time, and.;
new clubs are always being formed;
In addition, jtn theprivate . clubs, the
city maintains Pa large course in Van
Cortlandt Park. It is now proposed thai
a new course shall be constructed as
there is so much demand for the privi
lege of playing that it is almost impos
sible for a golfer' to play without being
compelled to wait for seven or eight
hours after he arrives at .the Jinks,
This situation gives somedea-df the
enormous popularity the ganie has at
tained in ihe North, and explains, in
some measure, why the city of Hender
sonville should proceed to have a good
golf course as soon as possible. There
is a growing demand for it to make pur
city more thrifty. In every city there
are many people who would like to
play golf, but who do not care to as-,
sume the expense that attaches to
membership in a private club. Many
of these people do not feel,-moreover,
that they will obtain value received
from a private club as they are able
to play only once or twice a week,
and this is a small return in play for.
the amount of money they are com
pelled to pay into a golf club. Around
New York the demand for opportuni
ties to play golf is so great that nearly
all clubs have long waiting lists, and it
may Tequire several years for a man
whose name is entered to become a
regular member. The man who do
sires to play golf finds the door largely
closed to him in this direction. He can
do chen only one of two things either
join a club that is about to be formed,
or play on the municipal links. Now,
these municipal links are becoming so
crowded that more of them are neces
sary. It must be remembered that go'f
is as popular with the class of men
who are able to spend time and money
to come 'here for the summer and win-
I ter seasons as it is with i!;ose who do
j not belong to regular golf clubs, ani
who are not tourists. Wherever golf
N to be had, tourists will go. This is
Hendersonville's opportunity to reap
a rich harvest next season. Get a golf
course by all means by the opening of
the next summer season. The more
opportunity that is afforded for play
ing the game, the more tourists there
will be. Hendersonville will find that
it never did a wiser thing than to build
a golf course right away. It has got
ten to the point where most high-class
tourists absolutely ignore towns and
cities that do not have a standard golf
course, and for this one reason, if for
no other, we think a golf course for
Hendersonville la a necessity that we
cannot afford to pass up.

The price of white pririt paper I
now beyond the reach of many coun
try publishers and the pinch has come.
It would not be surprising news to
hear of the failure of many papers
that have failed'to provide against the
extraordinary increase in all materials
that go into the manufacture of a
paper. Every publisher has been
forced to practice the strictest econ
omy. Dead beat subscribers have been
cut off. the exchange list has been
trimmed, width of paper margins has
been reduced, subscription prices have
been advanced, even the floor sweep
ings of waste paper trimmings have
been taken care of and sold to the
best advantage, but still all of these
things fail to provide against the in-
rease in cost of materials.
Print paper which cost The Star
2.40 per hundred six months ago is
ow costing $6.50 per hundred. In
other words where It took $7.20 worth
of print paper to issue a Friday's Star
six months ago, it now takes $19.50
worth, with indications of still greater
In view of this most serious prob
lem that has ever confronted The
Star, we want to insist that our sub
scribers renew at once. You need not

to cause a fellow to spend the money

Since there is a good deal of talk
lust now about the changes made in.
the public school textbooks by the re
cent Text-Book Commission. I desire
to offer a. remark or two. In the first
place, , the . Commission found it neces
sary to make but few changes,, viz
Readers, spelling books, lower history,,
lower language book and the drawing
books. The demand for these changes
was made by the teachers of the State
Also the Commission was thoroughly
competent, having on it school men
of experience and students of peda
gogy, and I believe that the teacher?
and this Commission are in position to
understand better the merits of a text
book than is the politician who has a
tendency to criticize their acts.
Also, some seem to think that these
changes place a great financial burdea
upon the patrons of the schools be
cause the old books cannot be used
Democratic 1 by younger members of the family af
ter the adopted book list goes intj
effect. Now we know that the old
books may be exchanged for the new
at about half price; so if any one will
take the time to compare the old ami
the new book lists, he will find that
the entire ehange will amount only to
about $3.00. This means that a na
tron who has seven children attending
school and every one in a different
grade will have to expend only $3.00'
because of the changes. Of course the
expense to the .man of the average sio
family will be much less than that.
