Duckworth Tuesday, Mar. ■ VOICE OF THE PEOPLE such a thing in Brevard is something pfist our understanding. Mr. Silverstein stated on different occasions that he did not intend build ing a tannery here, but v/as going to build a Belting factory and a “Finish ing Plant^’ for his Rosman product. I heartily agree with Mr. Silverstein that he built the “Finishing Plant” all right. The plant that, had it not burn ed, or should he be allowed to rebuild it, spells “Finish” to Brevard. Finish as a health resort, finish as a pleasure resort, finish as a residence town for our own people and everybody else. A finishing plant which took tjie “skill ed labor” out of many kitchens, to- wit: your cooks, in order to'increase the efficiency of the force. A finish ing plant which created such a de mand for “skilled labor,” such as had heretofore been employed at the wash tub, that many of our wives actually had to patronize Jim Bromfield in or der to get the family washing done. Let me say in conclusion and that in all ser iousness. I believe the peo ple of Brevard should be a unit in op posing the rebuilding of any such plant within the city limits as the one destroyed because of the fraud and deception practiced upon an upsus- pecting public in obtaining: their co operation .and assistance in the first place, and because of the polluting and comtaminating effect such a plant has upon both the water and atmo sphere of the immediate community, rendering itself highly, undesirable as well as detrimental to the best in terest of Brevard, and if you will eli minate the question of personal gain to a few of our business men—the merchants perhaps, and a few others —I dare say that every man, woman and child within a two mile radius ' would at once say to not allow such ' a thinsT to "be rebuilt here. i nr , I Manar^cr Glenn of the Sapphire One fc ing further and I shall stop. i Theatre has chosen for his Spring I know perfectly well how unpopular serial picture “The Iron Test,” what it is with certain of our people for an described as Vitagraph’s “latest and insijrnificant person like myself to op- i photoplay serial.

F. Alman, a well-known seed merchant of 271-3 Peters street, At lanta, Ga. “For more than a year,” he con tinued, “I suffered terribly with stom ach trouble. After eating anything I would always have gas on my stom ach and would constantly belch up my undigested food. I suffered with heartburn constantly and • was ex tremely nervous, my liver was slug gish and I was bilious, too, I felt languid and tired-out most of the time and often felt so bad that I could hardly attend to my business properly. “I heard so many people praising Tanlac that I began taking it, too, and by the time I had finished my second bottle I had gained nineteen pounds. I never suffer now with heartburn or ^ indigestion and am not nervous like j I was before, I sleep well and get up j in the morning feeling fine and read- j dy for a hard day’s work.” j Tanlac is sold in Brevard by Duck worth Drug Co., in Sapphire by J. T. Harrison, Jr., in Davidson River by J. J. Patton & Son, and by all good druggists. Adv. THE IRON TEST IS FASTER THAN 3-RING CHtCUS crty we are compelled to remain here in Brevard and by reasons of Mr. Sii- verstein’s wealth he is able to go else where when conditions here do not suit him. I owe him and his associa tes nothing but goodwill in any en terprise that is not damaging to the ! thrilling story of romance and , , , ... , . ' adventure which he has seen on the balance of my neighbors but, as in announces “The Iron Test” will start at the Sap- pliire Theatre on Thursday, March 20 and that he will run an episode each week on Thursday for fifteen weeks. Mr. Glenn says that he has S3en the major portion of “The Iron Test” and he believes it to be the Miss Edith Warren of Goldsboro, N. C. is the guest of friends here. Wm. H.

To begin with, the story has for its background a circus and the big mountains of the West, which assure plenty of action and fine pho tography. Some of the thrills noted by Mr. Glenn he relates as follows: In the first episode Antonio Mo reno leaps through a blazing hoop to a flying trapeze, and in doing so his clothes are set afire. He falls to the ground in flames. In the third episode Mr. Moreno and Miss Holloway, performing on the high trapeze are plunged down ward from the top of the “big top” when a knife inserted by the villain cuts the trapeze rope. Later on Carol Holloway is attack ed by a raging lion. Still further Mr. Moreno has a bat tle in mid-air while he is driving an airplane. He loses control of the ma chine and leaps from a great height into the sea. Again Carol Holloway risks her life to save Moreno from being crush ed by a train. Further on she per forms one of the most wonderful rid ing feats ever seen, when racing along a perilous precipious mountain trail she cuts the ropes binding Moreno to a wild horse and saves him from being plunged to destruction over the cliff. “These are only a few of the thril lers I remember,” said Mr. Glenn, “but they are a fair sample of the hazardous stunts which Mr. Moreno and Miss Holloway perrorm in the course of the serial. The things hap pen so fast that, looking at several episodes in a bunch, it is almost im possible to keep track of them all. The serial has a circus background, but the action as faster than any three-ring circus that ever tested the eyesight and neck muscles of an au dience trying to watch all three at once—and, you know, that is what we all try to do when we go to a three ring circus.” Remember the date—March 20, 1919. at SAPPHIRE THEATRE Free to all from 2 o’clock to 5 o’clock Afternoon SMORme TOEACCO FMUS FROM THE ENCYWAEDU The U» 0f Fiavoriqs Deter* mines Difference In Orends The Encydopsedia Britannica says about the manufacture of smoking to bacco: “.. .on the Continent and in America, certain 'sauces* are employed •.. the use of the ‘sauces' is to improve the flavour and burning qualities of the leaves.” Which indicates that a smoker’s enjoyment depends as much upon flavoring used as upon the tobacco. Your nose is a sure guide in the mat ter of flavorings. Try this simple test with several tobacco brands: pour some tobacco into your palm, rub briskly, and smell. ^ You will notice a distinct difference in the fragrance of every brand.^ The tobacco that smells best to you will smoke best in your pipe, you dn rest assured. Carefully aged, old Burlw tobacco, plus a dash of pure chocolate, gives TUXEDO Tobacco a pure fragrance your nose can quickly distinguish from any other tobacco.
