Further investigations by Mr.
Siniard and others revealed that
Sugar Loaf and vicinity was rich in
gold, the deposits being found in the

clay banks. Several nuggets were
found on the Northwest side of the
mountain where a landslide opened up
the soil and rocks.
Mr. Siniard believes that the gold

POIMS IN COUNTY

to take care of the. county affairs.
Put the proposition up to fOck and
some of the other go-Td home boys. He
.says to use common sense, now lets
use a little.
How do you expect the good far
mers to burn their 30 cent corn for
fuel and pay these salaries. Just
figure a little. It would take around
60,000 bushels of, corn to pay the
county expenses or salaries. Mr.
Editor, how much would there be left?
We must consider that all tax payers
have had from 50 to 75 per cent re
duction in the last three of four
So why not live artd let live. Don't
take it out on the little kids.
Now let me make a proposition to
remove the cause. First, we all know
that dirty politics is a bad policy in
county government and has hurt
Transylvania county more than any
one thing. Let's call a mass meeting
of the taxpayers of the county ; divide
the offices between the two parties,
then nominate two candidates of one
party for each office. Allow each
party, for example, say two candi
dates for sheriff (Dem.) and two
candidates for Treasurer (Rep) and
so on. Put these all on one county
ticket. Let the voters sclent the
officers. This would eliminate politics
in the county affairs. Another thing
this would take it out of the hands ot!
political bosses. This would really be
better for the officer for he wouldn't
have to buy his officc.
Send a representative to the legis
lature who will .represent, the tax
payers and not the party who sent
nim. Let him fix all salaries.
Let's all shore the burden together
and save Transylvania county, the
best little spot in America.
Yours for success,

The Auto Sales Company,
Brevard, N. C.
Some time ago I was confronted with the problem of replac
ing my automobile, and being desirious of securing the most
economical transportation consistent with reasonable comfort and
appearance, I made a very careful investigation of light care snd
purchased a Chevrolet.
During the past ten months I have driven this car mure than
twelve thousand miles and find that my choice was wise. Although
this car was purchased prior to the opening of your business in
Brevard, I am grateful to know that any and all service can be had
on the car right here in Brevard.
I am very glad to recommend this car.
Very Truly yours,
