Mac Nab, Proprietors A PROPHECY qn HOME LOCATIONS. One of the most forceful prophecies of the future home development of the Sandhills is seen in the two new houses built by Judge W. A. Way and James Barber at Mid-Pines. These houses stand between the Midlands road and the golf course. From the road they present an attractive ap pearance. But to see just what they are they must be seen from the golf front. There is a picture. On the ridge above the expansive green lawn of the course, facing that great park that the golf course will always be, fronting the pine groves that top the neighbor ing knobs, those two new houses tell beyond all peradventure that in a year or two Mid-Pines will be surrounded by a con tinuous border, of tasty cottages that will , make that com munity one of the most popular of any golf center in the world. For a location confer with: A. S. Newcomb, Pinehurst, P. Frank Buchan, Southern Pines, S. B. Richardson, Southern Pines, or Leonard Tufts, Manager of Knollwood, Inc. Aaltc doAn the course And look, at these Houses. AIR SERVICE FOR PINEHURST Arrangements have been made with L. E Shealy of Charlotte, to provide air nights i for visitors at Pinehurst this season and to establish here a class for flying in struction. Mr. Shealy is a thoroughly capable and reliable man, having served nearly three years in the air service of the United States Navy during the waT, and Pinehurst is fortunate in securing the services of such a competent pilot. Dur ing his five years' flying experience he has flown seventeen different types of hydro and land planes and has from 25 to 400 hours flying time in eaeh. He recently made the trip from Philadelphia to Wilmington, N. C, in a hydro-plane in 6 hours and 57 minutes. The machine to be used at Pinehurst is what is known as a Curtiss Canuk, in which Mr. Shealy has 400 hours flying time to his credit and has never met with an accident. In addition to short pleas ure flights from the field he will take passengers on cross-country trips to any place they want to go, and will give lessons in the art of flying to any who desire. Mr. Shealy says that no 'stunts' will be indulged in unless requested by the passenger and that no passenger need feel uneasy from this source. He expects to start operations at Pinehurst around December 15, and those who are inter ested in this sport will find him at the flying field.
