ROSMAN PEOPLE PROUD OF FINE RECORD MADE IN GREAT REVIVAL
f 200 CONVERTS IN THE TWO
WEEKS' M'LENOSN MEETING
All Incidental Expenses Promptly Paid By Rosman People, and
a Purse of $1011 Given f.".. McLendon as Free Will Offer
ing ? Meeting Lasted C\ :.y Two Weeks, But Was Most
Successful ? All Minist; ?v, Church Officials, Town Officials
and Company Official's Worked Hand-in-Hand for Success
of Meeting ? Baptismal Services Next Sunday.
"Tell your readers that Rosman
went over the top with the McLen
don revival, which resulted in more
than 200 converts and a still larger
number of those who rededicated
their lives to the cause of Christian
ity and Chrisi, and presented Cyclone
Mack with a purse of $1,011 at the
conclusion of his two weeks' meeting
here," came telephone messages
from Rosman citizen?.
The meetings were held in the
auditorium of the new high school,
and Mr. McLendon had the enthus
iastic support of the pastors of Ros
man and the church leaders. The
vow-n officials and influential citi
zens made every effort for the suc
cess of the revival, and through this
coordination Mr. McLehdon pro
nounced it one of the most success
ful meetings ever held.
One big result of the campaign,
according to telephone communica
tions with various citizens of Ros
man, is that of the elimination of
factionalism and the settlement of
personal differences that have ex
* isted to some extent in Rosman..
Mr. Jos. S. Silversteen cooperated
with the meeting in every way, and,
it is said, made substantial donations
both towards the incidental expenses
and to Mr. McLendon's personal gift.
Other members of the big industrial
organization, headed by Mr. Silver
steen, also worked faithfully, it is
said, in every phase of the campaign.
Mayor Mahoney and members of
th? board of aldermen worked
shoulder to shoulder, it is pointed
out rvfitji pride, with those who were
opponents in the recent town
? f ftififi'iW, " this fine spirit of coop
oration is given much credit for the
success of the revival.
i Among those who were constantly
in attendance at the meetings were
Mr. C. R. McXeely and other cit
izens of the Lake Toxaway section,
and all these, it is said, labored in
At the closing service Sunday
night the big auditorium was packed,
the doors and windows filled with
those listening to Mack's last ser
mon, while large numbers of people
left the ground, s because they could
not get inside nor nenr any vantage
point where they could hear the ser
mon. All who were Christians were
| asked to stand, and fully four
fifths of the large crowd stood and
testified to their Christian lives. A
gentleman from South Carolina was
heard to remark, "I would love to
! live in this community where the
spiritual life claims this large per
centage of the population."
The Methodist and Baptist church
es are preparing to receive large
numbers next Sunday. The Baptists
will conduct baptismal services at
the forks of the river just previous
to the church services next Sunday.
"Rosman, the religious city," was
suggested by some as a new slogan
for the town, which has been sland
ered many, many times in the past.
While still another slogan is, "Ros
man is right."
Practically all the citizens of the
town are highly elated over the suc
cess of the revival, which paid its
incidental expenses and made an
unusual free-will offering to the
great evangelist, under whose preach
ing and pleading more than 200 con
verts were added to the great artny
of the Lord.
KIWANIS BARBECUE ,
WAS GREAT SUCCESS
Mr. Shipman'a Camp W?i Scene of
Most Enjoyable Meeting ?
90 Per Cent Present
Many efforts will have been made
before the Brevard Kiwanis club has
a more enjoyable or successful meet
ing than that staged last Thursday
evening at the mountain camp of
Mr. Thomas H. Shipman, on the
Pickens highway. It was "Ladies'
Night,'' and preparations had been
made for ah attendance of Sfty peo
ple, including the ladies. When the
crowd assembled about eighty ans
wered to the roll call. As an indica
tion of the thoroughness of the prep
arations, this larger number was well
cared for, and several baskets of sur
plus food was sent to the county
home, with compliments of the club
for the inmates of that institution.
Sam Allison, well known caterer,
assisted by Bill Barrett, cooked the 1
barbecue dinner, which was pro
nounced good, and evidenced by the
way the people relished the repast, j
Mrs. Shipman was hostess to the '?
ladies, and with her husband, was
given a rising vote of thanks at the
conclusion of the program.
The club voted to assist physicians
of the county in entertaining a group
of eminent physicians who are to be
in Brevard at an early date. Re
quest for this cooperation came from
Miss Martha Boswell, representing
the County Hospital association.
As it was Rev. 0. L. Simpson's last
Kiwanis meeting here, before his de
parture for Nashville, tributes were
paid to him as pastor, citizen, friend
and Kiwanian. It was said that
Oscar Simpson's residence in Bre
vard, and his activities in the club,
would leave an influence here that
would never die. Regret was ex
? pressed over losing the popular pas
J- tor, yet the club rejoiced with him in
tHe larger opportunities that will be
hi? new work.
Prof. J. B. Jones, principal of
High schorfl; Prof. Shore, principal
of -Xhe Elementary school, and Prof.
1 | Winton, superintendent of the Bre
\vard Institute, were present and
made most interesting talks.
The club will meet next Thursday
evening at Mrs. McMinn's home on
Caldwell street at 7 o'clock, and it
i? expected every member will be

Pushell's Department store was
placed in voluntary bankruptcy on
Monday by Luther Pushell, "owner
and manager of the concern. Mr.

pursued in order to protect-Wf?-Gred=

Pushell's, beginning business in
Brevard as Jerome and Pushell near
ly six years ago, has enjoyed a splen
did growth. Mr. Jerome sold his in
terest to Mr. Pushell about two years
ago, when tha firm name was changed
to Pushell's. Plans for expansion were
made when Western Carolina was
enjoying its tremendous prosperity.
These plan: failed, in part, to ma
trialize, and this is thought to be one
cause of the firm's embarrassment
during the period of readjustment.
Mr. Pushell and his wife, who as
sisted him in the business, have
made numerous friends in the coun
ty, who sympathize with him in his
troublie, and many have been heard
to express the hope that the Push

continue to live in Brevard.

Much interest is being manifest in

better selling is hoped for by the

than they can pay and ship to ar.v

they will go down to four cents, that
they may be shipped to farther

they have a good opening for our

Again, the market does not buy
beans such as homefolk like best.
Only a very small bean inside is
wanted, just what farmers call slabs.
The big reason is that when full
beans are shipped, and several days
elapse before they reach market, the
full ones are turning yellow, and
will shell out as hard beans. They
cannot handle just what the people
want for this reason. So in picking
beans for the market, select the

I ciiUl'tii lor the past ten months, left
j on Tuesday, accompanied by Mrs.
Simpson and their four little boys,
| for their new home in Nashville,
!Tenn., where Mr. Simpson will as
sume at once his newly elected duties
as assistant editor of the General
Sunday School Board of the M. IC.
In an interview with a representa
tive of The Brevard News just prior
to his departure, Mr. Simpson paid
high tv.bute to the members of his
congregation and to the peopls of the
community in general for their
many expressions of cordial hospi
tality shown to himself and to Mrs.
Simpson during their brief stay in
Brevard, and expressed himself as
greatly apreciative of the splen'id
cooperation and loyal spirit manifest
not oi:!y among the people of his con
gregat.i n, but of the other denomin
ations well. "The ties of friend
ship forr ?! among the many splcn

remain as among the most pleasant
memories of our sojourn of a few
months in this beautiful section of

Kev. Mr. Simpson delivered his
two farewell sermons on Sunday be
fore large and attentive audiences,
his sermons on both occasions being
of an unusually inspiring and im
pressive nature. At the morning
hour of worship, the communion ser
vice .was held, at which an unusually
large number of church members
participated. In behalf of the
board of trustees of the church, Mr.
Oliver Orr spoke in a few well
chosen and well-deserved words at
the morning service of the high es
teem in which the church members
held Mr. Simpson and of their sin
cere appreciation of his successful
and efficient labors among them, re
joicing with him in his promotion to
new and larger field of labors, and
predicting for him a great future in
the work of the church and the
cause of religion.
YOUNG WHITE MAN
Much excitement was created last
Wednesday night when Fred Gash,
colored, slashed Clarence Stamey,
young white man, with a razor
across the face. The incident oc
curred on Main street, near the Bre
vard bank, and after slashing the
white man, it is said, the negro ran
across the street pursued by several
men who had been attracted by the
melee. The negro made his get
away, and has not been captured.
Young Stamey was taken to the
Transylvania hospital, where Dr.
Thos. J. Summev dressed the wounds.
The cut went clear through the stde
of his face, from mouth almost to
the ear, barely missing the throat.

It was pointed out at the meet

Great Progress Being Made by
Y & B. Corporation In
Buying Farm Produce
FARMERS URGED TO
Petitions To Be Circulated
, ! Among Farmers, Urging
Commissioners To Keep
Farm Agent's Office
' In view of the great progress be
ing made by the cash produce mark
et and creamery recently established
here by the Y. & IB. Corporation, di
rectors of the Chamber of Com
merce declared at Tuesday night's
meeting that a farm agent is abso
lutely essential to the success of the
farmers of the county. A committee
was appointed to begin circulation of
petitions all over the county in
which the commissioners will be
urged at their next meeting to
: rescind their recent action, and con
tinue the office of farm agent.
All members of the board of di
rectors were named as committee to
carry these petitions before the com
missioners on the first Monday in
October, and urge the commissioners
to continue the office.
The office of farm agent was dis
continued recently, to take effect on
the first of December, this year. It
is hoped to induce the county autho
ities to change this order, and con
tinue the office. . ..
"Talk about your factories all
you want," said C. C. Yongue, ex-.,
pert farmer, "but I want to tell you
that the biggest and best thing, .that
could be brought to Transylvania
is that cash market and creamery
which is now operating here. Those
fellows have already bought, paid
for and shipped more farm produce
than I thought was ' . iu the,uwUolfi,
county. They nave scattered*JTTTOrtr
money over Transylvania county
than any factory would have done,"
continued Mr. Yongue.
All members agreed with this ex
pression, and each pledged to do all
in their power to help the movement
grow and prosper, to the end that
the farmers of the county shall al
ways have a cash market for the
Farmers of the county are urged
to express themselves through the
columns of The Brevard News on the
question of retaining the form agent.
As the county pays only ?000 and ihe .
state pays SI 600 of the farm
agent's salary, it seems to some a
real tragedy to dispense with this
work just now. Jt is hoped the
farmers will write letters to The Bre
vard News, stating their views on
the question of the farm agent. The
farm agent is in direct touch with
the market, the kinds of crops to
grow for quick sale, when to plant
and when to harvest and market; the
same is true of the creamery and
poultry business. Hence the med
