Mr. Siniard told of an interesting inc-.dent which occurred during the Civil War and which he vouches to be trv.e. A man and his son were hiding in the cliffs of Sugar Loaf Mountain in order that they counld not be found | and made to enter the army. During ; the time thev were hidden away, Mr. ' Siniard asserts, the two men panned cut of a small branch near the mountain, over 5400.00 worth of gold dust. "During the year of 1920 I took my wagon to a small branch near Sugar f.oaf." Mr. Siniard said, "to get a load of gravel. After I had finished loading, I noticed that my rusty shovel had changed into a shovel of gleaming yellow." Further examination revealed to Mr. Siniard that these yellow parti cles were gold, and that they had lodged in the rusty crevices of the shovel in sufficient quantity to make it look yellow. Mr. Siniard said that it was after he showed the shovel to his father. Mr. L. G. Siniard. that he toid him of the two men mining $400. worth of gold dust near Sugar .Loaf. Mr. Siniard said that he returned to the same stream and managed to got a nice run of gold dust, which he -ent to the late Capt. Chas. French Toms, a prominent resident of Hend rsonville, who replied by letter that he believed Mr. Siniard to have made a valuable discovery for the gold was almost pure. Further investigations by Mr. Siniard and others revealed that Sugar Loaf and vicinity was rich in gold, the deposits being found in the >ld rock quarry where stone was se cur-d for building purposes, free gold n the nearby streams and a rich , coating of gold in the flint rocks and 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 vein which begins on Sugar Loaf mountain leads through Brevard, pas sing beneath the Brevard High school ; building in its course. Efforts are being made to secure several specimens for examination and it is expected that Mr. Wood, mineralogist at the Boylston gol<j mine, will examine the Sugar Loaf oin on his return here. , iiiiiiiiiiii "Insist on a proper fitti ng of your foot.

EASTV1EW' FARM DAIRY WOULD ELIMINATE ' ? POIMS IN COUNTY ( Cowtinncd frotfi page one) 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 years. 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.

( Continued from, page one ) rather folks didn't know about, bui here's one that is thankful for the fact that we've never had quite as low down a thought as the one the Pen rose Citizen expressed. That is to rob not only the other man's children but our own as well, of their birthright. We wonder why it is that when a fel low's taxes come due ? I mean the b; grudging tax payer ? he hops 011 th. idea to taking the schools away f: :i: the children. Some folks in offering a solution to the depression ? A depression that i world wide ? seems to blame it all on the schools, and would rather go tars free than have the children schooled. The State's guarantee of a months school would do this count:, no good for any thing but schools an.-: the extended school tax this count;, has could not be taken to use for a: \ thing but school. We'li venture to say that at least two thirds of our county's sclvx children will hr/' no further edu cation than the high school affords, and we think it's a shame to want even one day of that taken from the-1 or to even put off getting of their education. We've read several suggestions and heard of several more, 011 this sar: . question but we believe the one to roi our children the most unworthy one If we'd ever thought of that w couldn't look a child in the face. Its rather funny, that idea. whr r our county has just adopted the 5-1 farm program and decided to ha. thoroughbred cattle and hogs an pure bred poultry and certified see:' etc. Isn't it rather inconsistant t turn our youngsters into an ignorcn. bunch. We're wondering why the Veterar of '18 and Mr. Barton of Selica woul'" let their wage comparison stop be tween our County officials and '1 rent corn. Why not have our federa' officers splice up on their wages. The United States Government is in r mere serious condition than North Carolina or Transylvania county.
