The KU KLUX KLAN,
Pf GOD Or The Devil Which
-Baptist Churcli Sunday Night
A number of people in town ha-e spoken to,about and
asked my opinion of the KU KLUX KLANORGANJZATION.
We will give it oh Sunday night at the Baptist Chinch We
deem it of such great importance that we shall take it as the
subject of our Gospel Sermon 'the KLAN claims to be a Chris
tian Organization, but we will prove that it is one of the most
UN-CHRISTIAN things in existence. ' ;
The KLAN claims to be an AMERICAN Organization,
but we will prove that it is onejpf the nu st Un-American things
in the land. t
The Klan claims to be a NOBLE order, but we will prove
that it is one of the most IGNOBLE things in the world
All members of the KU KLUX ' KLAN, and those con
templating membership thereinrare cordially invited to be pre
sent. ' f . ,
In connection with the service we will have a little Mo
tion Picture Travelogue, entitled "The Venice of the Orient"
that is, Manilla, Phil ipine Islands, one of the most fascinating
little cities in the world. Two five hundred foot reels. Sunday
morning we will endeavor to preach on that which ought to be
helpful to one and all, that is 'The Safety Of God's Children."
You are invited. One more word regarding the Ku Klux Klan
service we will deal with it froni a four-fold standpoint, that
of HISTORY -that of the BIBLE, that of COMMONSENSE
and that of PATRIOTISM, t .,
It will be a regular HE-MAN message right from the
shoulder. We will do our best to aim straight and hit hard.
Good luck and best wishes to you all, whoever and what
ever you may be, and whether you like me or not. As far as
I am concerned, life is too short to bear malice of any kind.

THE RIVER ROAD .
By James H. Caine
This magazine believes that it voices the hope of every auto
ist in this section and elsewhere when it urges the Asheville Auto
mobile Club and kindred bodies to lend every effort to the project
which looks to the completion of the proposed river road from
Asheville to Marshall. Certainly no money could be better ex
pended in the line of auto highways, forming, as it would, an easy
road for travel along a route of rare scenic beauty, to say nothing
of the completion of a link of communication which would be of
incalculable value from art economic and commercial point of view.
This road, if carried to completion,, would constitute the most
pepular link of the Knoxville-Ash'jville highway and would un
doubtedly greatly increase the volume of tourist travel from Cin
natti, Louisville and other points north. ' V
Then, too, the people, of Marshall and Madiscn County are en- .
titled to some consideration in that tney have spared neither time
nor money in the effort to reach the goal of their ambition. There
now runs from Marshall to Hot Springs an automobile highway
that will compare favorably with any in the 3 mth, and there is
every reason to believe that the completion of the river route
from Asheville would be speedily followed dx a greatly improved
highway from Hot Springs to Knoxville. V
Nor need we believe that making the river road fnto Madison
county an accomplished fact would be detrimental in the least to
the highways now reaching Asheville via other routes ? As previ
ously stated, the roa3valong the Fiendi Broad from Marshall to

carrying an irresistible appeal to the tourist. The modern auto
mobile highway, in sections that cater to the tourist industry, is
not undertaken with a view to commercial advantages alone. Were
this the case, many sections of the United States which today en
joy a large measure of popularity among American tourists would
still be buried in that rural obscurity which -was their portion be
fore the advent of the automobile.
The people of Madison County

visioned a scenic boulevard linking
tain metropolis, and the people tof Ashevil)e, through the commer
cial bodies, can very well assist then in the effort. Diversion
magazine understands that the citizens of Marshall have' joined
the Asheville Motor club in large numbers, relying on the explicit
promise of tangible support in the movement which looks to the
completion of the river route under discussion, and we have little
doubt that the promise so made wijrt be redeemed. n
We hear many pleas nowadays
the counties of Western North Oorolina, Prom time to time char
ges, though often baseless, have ' been,, 'made to the effect that
Asheville is mindful only, of herself in matters ilJat pertain to the
promotion of the tourist industry in We stem North Carolina. Here
then, is an opporunity to prove that Asiieville does not stand brick

Looking on a less sordid side of the prospect, we may find some '
