CLOSED SUNDAY EVE
The special revival services at the
Methodist church which were held
all last week by Rev. J. H. Stan
berry and party came to a success
ful close Sunday night. Services
were held each evening at the church
and a number of cottage prayer
f meetings were conducted daily.
' An interested church worker who
with Mr. Stan berry in his revival
meeting here two years ago remark
ed that while the se vices last week
did not produce the large number
of conversions that featured the
series two years ago, widespread in
terest was shown. Good results are
predicted for a long time to come.
Rev. Mr. Stanberry's sermon Sun
day morning was on tithing. At the
close ot the sermon an impressive
feature was the brief consecration
service for stewards. At the invi
tation of the pastor, - the stewards
knelt at the chancel as an act of
dedication to their work as church
The church was crowded at the
evening service to hear Mr. Stan
berry's farewell message. As a
token of appreciation a generous
purse was presented to the members
of the evangelistic party. Rev. O.
L. Simpson voiced appreciation and
thanks for the blessing the services
have brought to town.
"I wish God would pull back the
curtain this morning. What doth it
profit a man if he gain the whole
world arrd Ins? his soul?
"Will a man rob God? You
know that old covetous fellow who
says, 'I want my part and I want
God's part, too.'
"Of course some folks, all they
think about is something to eat.
Some folks, you can't get a penny
out of them- unless its something
pitiful. There's nothing pitiful
about giving to God.
"I'll eat dry bread, I'll go bare
foot, I'll sleep out. 111 drink whiskey
before I'll rob God."
H. GLAZENER BUYS
F. Henderson, being favorable to
Gurnsey cows, has been longing for
several years for a Gurnsey bull in
the Connestee faction. Not being
in position to keep one himself, he
has had to let his hopes slide by.
When Houston Glazener moved into
the section, he soon found out that
Mr. Glazener was of the same mind,
so they talked it over, and consulted
neighbors, and all seemed to be of
the same mind: T. A. English hav
ing what Mr. Glazener wanted, the
trade was made.
To make things go faster, a son of
each Mr. Henderson and Mr. Glaz
ener, wanted to have a Gurnsey
calf and do club work, so they took
their savings and bought a calf
each from Mr. English. Mr. Hen
derson not to be outdone by the
boys, also buys a springing heifer.
So this giving the section one pure
bred bull, and five high grade fe
males. Others are seriously consid
ering buying a heifer. Dreams do
come true, but not all at once, says
Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Smith and Miss
Edith Hunt have returned to the
city after three weeks spent at
Apopka, Florida. While there Mr.
Smith visited the Chamber of Com
merce and presented Brevard's in
vitation to the people in that sec
tion to vi&t Transylvania county.
In addition to this good advertising,
Mr. Smith placed Brevard signs
about the fishing clubs and other
public places, and put one big sign
along the banks of Wekewa river,
where thousands of excursionists
pass every winter. It is the only sign
along the river banks, and will be
a big advertisement for this section.

I AN ASSOCIATION
By L. A. AMMON
Friday night a group of interested
poultrymen met in the County
Agent's office and discussed poultry
pro and con, and decided that a
County organization would be a
good thing to push the poultry pro
gram of the county. So feeling,
they elected Ralph Osborne presi
dent, C. C. Yongue vice-president,
and L. A. Ammon, secretary.
The crowd being small, a date was
set for another meeting, at which
other details are to be worked out.
The spirit is fine, and a program of
one hundred hens per farm, of good
blood and properly housed and fed,

day, December 3rd, and everyone
interested in the poultry game, or
interested in the project for the
farmers' help, arc invited to be
present at the court house, at 8 p.m.

out why some one does not grow
some Fall spinach, and the present
price would make it a very profitable
crop. Say an acre. Another wants

why they do not grow it, as they do
cabbage. Not grown in Western

The County Agents have their
annual meeting in December this
year. While there I expect to get
in direct touch with the soy bean
market, and hope to make up an
order the last of December. The
U. S. crop is about normal, and
North Carolina's about the same as
last year, which ought to give us
beans at a reasonable price.
Mr. Consumer, take my advice
and lay in your stock of cabbage,
potatoes, and other vegetables.
Soon be sold short.
Mr. Z. V. Owen, formerly of Los
Angeles, but now back home at the

reaching a few thousand hens, and a
few cars of truck each year. Wes
