INSTITUTE BOY IS
INJURED BY A BULL
Roy Justus, a student in the Bre
vard Institute, is in the Mission Hos

juries sustained when he was attack

leg was seriously hurt and it was at
first thought amputation would be
necessary, although later reports in

It is a part of Jusus' work to feed
and care for the animals at the In
stitute and it was white in the pen
feeding the bull that he was attack
ed. The animal was considered harm
less and Justus took no weapon with
him. Without any provocation the
bull struck gt him and dug his horn
into the man's leg as he attempted
to make his escape. The flesh and lig
j aments in his leg were badly torn and
| a bone was fractured. Fellow stu
j dents, attracted by his cries rushed to
his aid. He was taken to the Mission
hospital and is reported to be out of
j A county wide meeting of the prin
| cipals and teachers of the Transyl
vania schools was held Saturday
morning at ten o'clock in the Brevard
High school building. The object of
this meeting was to make plans for
the improvement of school attendance.
Prof. R. R. Jenkins, principal of
the Pisgah, Forest school gave the
first, address, pointing out the value
and the effect of the enforced attend
ance law, and was followed by W. A.
Wilson who told how the compulsory
attendance law may be enforced.
Prof. J. E. Rufty, principal of the
Brevard Elementary schools pointed
, out how closely school failures ara
1 related to poor attendance.
Some startling figures were given
by Prof. Jones in substantial i ot
his claim that poor attenda^e is a
^ery costly item for the county.

invites all people to hear him, He is
well known in Brevard, having de
livered his famous lecture on Pales
tine at the Methodist church here
about two years ago, and has appear
ed in court here as counsel.
Mr. Newell is an ardent prohibi
tionist, and is opposing the Hon. Rob

Reynolds is for repeal of the Igth
amendment, and the contest between
the men has developed into a wet and
dry contest, rather than strict poli

Eastern Carolina this week, and

from here will visit all the Western
counties in his campaign, according

RIVER DAY SUNDAY
Rev. R. L. Alexander And Rev.
W. S. Hutchinson to Be
On next Sunday the usual annual
celebration of Davidson River Day
will be held at the Davidson RiVer
Presbyterian church, morning session
at eleven o'clock ; picnic dinner on the
grounds ; afternoon services shortly i
Rev. R. L. Alexander will preach j
in the morning, and Rev. W. S. Hut- j
chison in the afternoon.
Davidson River Day has been a i
standing celebration at this old j
church for so long that memory runs j
not to the contrary. Dating back to J
the days when the field of this church j
extended from Mills River and Cane j
Creek (Fletcher) on the east, and in-,
definitely west, this meeting usually j
has a large attendance from thisj
county, and a considerable attendance j
from surrounding counties.
At this old church, the people liked j
the "All-day- Meeting" when Bishop
Asbury ? the far famed Home Mis
sionary Methodist Bishop ? stopped
here in the Fall of the year 1800, and
they have liked it ever since.
"VVith Mr. Alexander to talk in "the !
morning, Mr. Hutchison in the after- j
noon and with the usual "Davidson !
River Day Picnic Dinner," a wonder- 1
fully enjoyable time will be had by
TO FARM PROGRESS!
? ? 1
J. A. GLAZENER. j
We find that fairs played an im- ;
portant part in educating the people i
in the days before the agricultural
colleges, experimental stations and
extension services. The early fairs
had as their principal idea the selling
by the barter method of the various
products and livestock. In some sec
tions of the old country this method
is still followed. Here in America
the purpose of our fairs is to en- ?
courage, stimulate and promote im-j
provement in livestock, crops, domes
tic development and rural conditions I
in general. A good fair is an educa- j
tional institution that should prove
to be of immense value in developing
the agricultural life as well as the
social life of any community, county
or state. What is a fair?
A real fair is more than a place j
for amusement, however, important 1
this phase may be. It tells by the j
exhibits and demonstrations of the
individual or the community what is ?
being accomplished. The fair is the i
screen on which will be thrown the ;
agricultural .and other pictures of
progress, improvement, initiative and
the application of '"better methods,
pertaining to farm life. A fair should
jand generally does, show the results
1 of the past year's education as well
as affording a social gathering of mu
tual interest. Fairs stimulate com
: munity pride and interest as well as
promote cooperation and the work
In conclusion I want to urge the
good people of Brevard High School
district to take an active part in j
helping to make The Sylvan Valley I
Fair the best yet. If you Iivr in the j
upper end of the county be sure to
! be loyal to that section by helping
with "the Rosman Commmunity Fair.
We want t o promote the agricultural
interest of Transylvania county, and
are asking the folks, young and old
to help us by exhibiting whatever you
can that is interesting and worth
I while, let it be crops, livestock, canned
J goods or fancy work.

Preaching Powerful Ser
mons In Revival.
The revival services conducted by |
Rev. Claude H. Moser, of Henderson- j
ville, at the Methodist church here
are being heard by exceptionally
large audiences, which is a source oi
great pleasure to both Rev. West, pas
tor and to Rev. Moser.
The service Sunday night was ad !
dressed to an audiance which taxed j
the capacity of the house. Besides the 1
members of the Methodist church, a j
large percent of the membership of
the Baptist church heard the sermon,
Rev Hartsell having foregone his reg
ular Sunday night service in order
that members of his his church might |
hear the Hendersonville pastor. There
was also a number of visitors from the
other Brevard churches and several
out of town visitors.
His sermon was a splendid one as
have been succeeding ones delivered
during this week. Attendance has been
good despite the inclement weather !
and a genuine interest is being shown
in the revival which will continue du
ring the entire week. A special invi
tation is extended to those who have
not attended to do so during the re-j
maining nights of the series.
Special talks have been heard at I
seven o'clock each evening by the j
young people and these will continue !
during the remainder of the week.
