Woodward, in charge oil Vthe Georgia Military-Naval academy and who has close connections with the United States War department, was chairman ot the board having charge of the organization of military schools for war work, in which capac ity he rendered invaluable services to ' the government and to the country.

For mapy years there has been an agi tation or such a line. Mr. Spier gave three reasons why thfe copper wire connecting the Htvirt of the Blue Ridge with the outside world should be strung. They were: The war is over. The lower' price of copper. The need of the service. The return of the wires to private ownership . ONE CENT POSTAGE AGAIN If you postpone writing that long delayed. letter until next Tuesday you! will save just thirty-three and one per cent of the cost of mailing it. In other words on July 1 two-cent postage stamps will again become fashionable, or the correct thing. The stamps may be placed in the upper right hand corner of the en velope after being, licked. Will two-cent postage save the people of Hendersonville mucn money. ' "No," says Postmaster S. Y. Bry son. "They will write more." And so there you are. dant, wholesome food.

Hendersoriville Some friend of the Hustler lias sen-, this paper an alligator. The alligator came from Florida. It is suppose,: the sender was a friend of this paper. The devil says he doesn't know. The devil brought the alligator from the postoSce. He isn't partial to alliga tors, as a general thing, he says. This alligator is mostly mouth. "When he yawns there is no alligator. Or at least there doesn't seem to be any alligator left. He isn't what yoi: might truthfully call handsome, judg ed by Hendersonville standards of beauty. Still at that, lu j j.ista shie better looking than the kaiser, whom he closely resembles. That may be a rough thing to say about a poor, innc cent little alligator, but facts is facts. Always be sure of" your facts and then. go right ahead. v , As we. go to press the alligator id still with us and will be on exhibi tion to all those paying one Jollar in advance for a year's subscription to this truly great journal. No looks will be permitted for less than one dollar. Siver or bills accepted but no unkind of personal remarks about the alligator will be permitted. That is the sole privilege of the devil. THE EASY WAY WE DO THINGS If Asheville should raise by public subscription $231,000 in three or four days, going at it kind of leisurly, j cu J know, that fact would be commented on. Also generally and for some little time to come. ' . . And vet that is nreciselv what TTen- I dersonville has done, nronortionateiv. In three or four days, recently, Hendersonville subscribed $10,000 for Georgia. Military academy stock, and $23,000 for golf links stock. Asheville's assessed valuation is f even times that of Hendersonville. Therefore, Asheville, to equal this record, would have ..o su'.3;ribo $231, 000 in the same length of time. The full depths of Hendersonville public spirit have ne-r been si-ne ? The efficient and f curishing beard of trade of this city has been the means of organizing this public spirit and before the efficient and flourishing board of trade finishes the job this city will be the metropolis of Western North Carolina.

W. Honeycutt who had been request ed to come to Hendersonville for a conference with the board, was unanimously elected superintendent Ifor the year 1919-1920. The Legislature of 1919 enacted laws for the compulsory attendance at the public schools which compels the trustees to make room for from 150 to 200 additional pupils. It also, fixed the minimum salaries of high school teachers at $70.00 per month and minimum salaries of graded school teachers at $62.50.

One million gallons a day sounds like seme fluid, but it's the truth. Hender sonville is to have that much abso lutely pure, sparkling water to drink every day if she wants it. Last year the City Fathers, with wise forethought, expended approxi mately $1,400 in installing an elec : trie . pumping .-station which delivers to the filter plant 244,000 gallons of water ?f day; which is estimated at only one sixth the volumne of the stream from which the supply is de rived. . - ', ,t' " This new supply, together with that from ether sources, furnished more water than the filter plant could jprop- erly accommodate, so The Robert's Filter Co., sent one of their experts -here and after a most careful exami nation of our water supply, including the water sheds and filter plant, re commended that the city equip our present filter plant with an additional ' percolation vat and a chlorinatior. This recommendation was accepted and acted upon by the new city gov ernment, after being first approved, by the city's consulting engineer, Mr. . White of Charlotte and Durham, and the material for this installation Is now being received.. . . . . 4 - With this addition the filter plant is guaranteed to furnish 1,000,000 gallons of absolutely pure water each day. The water to be of such a high quality as to pass any requirement either State or National. , Hendersonville is to be muchly con; gratulated on having a water supply which will be entirely adequate bolV as regards quantity, and, qual'ty for many years. One million gallons a day ! Where now is the water-famlna ghost of by-gone days? Gone ! ' NEW PRINCIPAL IS ELECTED ' Mr. McAdams has been elected as. principal of Hendersonville's high school. A new high school next. Hender sonville the educational center of Western North Carolina. SCHOOL BOARD OESTO RALEIGH R. ? Freeze, C. F. iBland and. S. T Hodges left on Tuesday for Ral- eigh to meet State Superintendent D-rooks and others in the interest of the city schools.
