Oh, see the ahli-ga-tor.!

LOST One alligator. Liberal re
ward if returned to The Hustler
The Hustler has lost its alligator
and the devil is shedding tears. He
says he had gotten to love that alli
gator and The Hustler printing office
w:f!)oi.U. an alligator don't seem the
same, like. He has kind of laid off
work since the alligator left and ppendi
most of his time telling subscribers
who drop in to pay their dues, just
how cute the little cuss was. Those
were his csact words, we believe.
In the business office there is a
firm belief that the alligator .has gone
out to hunt up delinquent subscribers
td this paper. They don't state this
positively in tjhe business office but
they are. inclined to think it may be
so. They say, in the business office,
that it would take a real mean alliga
tor to make some folks pay their sub
scriptions. But then they are rather
odd people, in the business office. All
they seem to think of is collecting and
pa-, ing out money. The devil says
they are more concerned about the
money with which to pay the . silly
bills than they are over the loss of his
pet alligator. The -devil sheds tears J
while saying this.
So if, tonight, when you crawl into
bed and wiggle your toes between the
nice clean sheets, if something cold
and clammy like catches hold of your
big toe and bites it off, you will know
it is The Hustler alligator reminding
you of your past due subscription. Of
course, this experience majr be avoid
ed by sending hi a dollar when your
conscience will be clear and you can
dream on and on quite undisturbed by
anyj fears of his alligatorship.
The devil says he just knows that
is what his alligator is doing and
fears some irate subscriber may hand
him, the alligator, rct the devil one
while performing hisr duty. J ust wh.t
the '.devil mean's is; ilot ' known 'but
that is what he said. So to rl'"evo
the j devil's mind if yyi lind the a lii
gator please bring htm. to-lljis. otllcV
with one dollar, to apply on your sub
scription account; -j" , i. "

However, the government never

if he follows in the tracks of his pre

Sheriff M. Allard Case, last Friday,
captured his forty-ninth still. This is
a record, it is believed, that will com
pare with any in the state, and indi
cates somewhat the untiring vigilance
of this officer of the law.
The raid on Friday resulted in the
capture of a fine, copper still of fifty
gallon capacity -'and the destruction
of 2,000 gallons of beer. The slill was
in full operation when, the shcrif' ar
rived but the moonshiner had received
warning and was gone.
Sheriff Case has brought in nine

The coming sale of that old and
picturesque landmark on Main street
inevitably it calls the man who has
done most to build Hendersonville,
who has l ad the greatest vision, the
most unfaltering faith in a Greater

not in the way of the public gooC.
The property bordered by Main and
Fourth and King is to be sold at pub
lic auction on Thursday and will soon
be filled with masses of brick and
dern business structures. One corner
of the property has already been sold
to the Citizens National Bank, whose
new home will stand there within the
year, the bank officials say.
The growth of the city demands
this development of vacant property
and for that reason no longer may this
picturesque old building bar the logi
cal expansion of the business district.
But, stragely enough, the citizens of
Hendersonville will doubly profit by
the change. For while the sale of this
property in the heart of the city spells
business expansion, and civic growth,
the money received from its sale will
largely be devoted to still further
developing Laurel Park truly now
the most beautiful natural park in
America and a Hendersonville CITY
park which has brought untold thou
sands of visitors here, .which has
spread far the fame of this resort and
which has cost the taxpayers never
one penny.

A railroad , siding is now, being
built fpr-thAHome Ice and Oil Com
pany,4 a $100,0013 all-Hendersonville
corporation whose cold-storage plant
will certainly fill, a long felt want
rean4 which will go a long way
towards- v estaWishing an .all-yea '
market for the farmers of Hender
son county.
The principal stockholders of the
new corporation are:
J. O. Bell, president of the Green
Rivpr Mannfartiirinfr Cnmnanvr
Brownlow Jackson, John T. Wilkins
-rt .
and E. J. Rhodes. Mr. Bell is the
president of the new. company, Mr.
Jackson is vice-president, Mr. Wil
kins is. secretary-treasurer, and Mr.
Rhodes will be the general manager.
The railroad siding is being con
structed on the company's recently
acquired property facing 500 feet on
the Southern Railroad tracks near the
depot and which is a block in depth.
While the cold-storage plant to be
built will represent one of the chief
activities of the company, it will also
operate a fifteen-ton-ice plant, and
will deal in all kinds of oils and fuel.
This branch of its business will be in
active operation this fall. The steel
oil storage tanks- and other required
equipment has been ordered and, it
is said, .will soon be installed. Coal,
wood and other fuels will be handled.
The cold-storage plant will be built
on the unit system, permitting its
enlargement as the business increases.
All food products, such as eggs, but
ter, fruits and meats, will be handled,
and the company, for its own account,
will buy and slaughter beef cattle
and hogs. A certain amount of cold
storage space will also be rented.
For many years a cold-torage
plant for. this city has been talked of ,V
and agitated. It will go a veryy
long way indeed towards establish-, ' ,
ing an all-the-year-round market f p ;
the farmers of this county and r
