TENT SHOWS" TL'RNEI) DOWN
The ndi'in of the citizens of Dry son City
is somewhat unusual, in that a traveling, stock
company which has been showing in that town
for ten years will iv; be granted a permit to
play there this year.
The Ih-yson City Times commenting on the
incident said : "At the very lowest estimate they
.have takeii at leastt $1,01)0 from the town which
should have stayed here. Persons have come
from far and wide to see this show and we know
that many of them who have attended hardly
had the means to feed their family, yet they
managed '. find the means to pay the admit
tance fee and also to get a reserved seat."
The suggestion was also made to Mayor
W. E. Elmore of I'ryson City, that all travel
ing shows be kept out of their town for the year.
There are a number of towns in. Western
North Carolina that have taken similar action,
and the sentiment seems to indicate that be
fore long it will bo a rare thing to see a "tent
show" in itown. ' Certainly they are not as plen
tiful as a few years ago.
Not that some of them were not clean
places of amusement, but the general trend of
things have put them out. The talking movies
have lilknl the gap where the "'tent shows" for
merly filled in.
and with the erection of a $10,000 mod
ern theatre here by J. E. Massie, which will
provide stage attractions, we believe that Way
nesviile will be prone to turn a cold shoulder
towards the "tent shows" that attempt to pitch
their tents here.
Th" highways look much better since the
tall weeds were cut during the week-end.
If Haywood County's 28,000 population
constantly talked and boasted this section as

It is about this time of year that neighbors
who fell out during ithe early part of the spring
about chickens and gardens begin speaking
We wonder what the young folks who drive
up in front of the fair one's home and imper
iously honk the horn until she comes out, would
do if they had to go back to the horse and bug
gy. They would in all probability train the
horse to neigh.
France now owns the largest and fastest
ocean liner afloat, having recently broken the
record for crossing the northern Atlantic. It
might be thai', France built the large ship in
anticipation of bringing over in it the war debt
or was the debt used as an anchor ?
It is predicted that in the ndt far distant
future every person will be required to record
his finger prints. One reason given is that
every year many persons are found dead who
are never identified. It is believed that with a
record of Ithe finger prints not only the identity
of the person could be determined but in case
of foul play such information might lead to the
discovery of the person or persons committing
WORLD IS WAITING FOR HAYWOOD
One of. the most popular song hits ever
written was: "The World Is Waiting For Th-;
To nhat same tune, the words could he
easily changed to read: "The World Is Waiting
For Haywood Strawberries," and that is a fact.
No less than ten truck loads have been hauled
from here during the past few weeks. One
truck had 168 crates on it, and left behind with
1 ithe growers in Francis Cove exactly $1.90 per
crate figure it out.
The berries are finding ready markets in
all places south of here, especially in Atlanta.
One trucker finds it profitable to make at least
four trips weekly for the berries. The berries
picked here today are served on 'the luncheon
tables in Atlanta tomorrow.
As for as can be learned, there is no other
spot in the country right at this time that has
berries, which gives Haywood County almost
And the surface has not been touched, so
to speak, with what could be done here with the
growing of berries. They are reasonably easy
to grow, and when trucks come to the very door
and pay cash the marketing of them is simple.
As- we have often stated, we believe Hay
wood farmers are passing up a great opportuni
ty by not taking advantage of growing more
LIFE IS A FUNNY PROPOSITION
A man in Mebane, who is not employed by
a newspaper (or by anyone else) has written
an editorial on life that deserves publication.
It was printed on a handbill, and evidently dis

to hi signature, "Age 07 Unemployed." Here
Life Is A Funny Proposition
From the Cradle to the Crave
Man comes into this world without his con
sent and leaves it against his will
During his stay on earth his time is spent,
in one continuous round of contraries and mis
understandings. In his infancy he is an angel. In his boy
hood he is a devil. In his manhood he is everv
thing from a lizard up. If he raises a family'
he is a 'chump,'. If he does not raise a family
he is too sellish. If he raises a check he is a
crook. If he is a poor man he is a bad manager'
and has no sense. If he is rich he is smart bin
dishonest. If he is in politics he is a grafter.
If he is not in politics he is an undesirable citi
zen. If he goes to church he is a hypocrite. If
he does not he is a sinner. If he gives to charity
it is for show. If he does not he is a tightwad.
When he first came into the world every
one wanted to kiss him. IVefore he leaves it
everyone wants to kick him; If he died young
there was a great future before him. If he lives
to a ripe old age, he is in the way. We are glad
when he is gone. He is only living to save fun
Ride less and walk more. Frown less and
laugh more. Preach less and practice more.
The San ford Herald
We know of nothing that will more com
pletely revolutionize living conditions in this
county than the stretching into the various
communities a line of power and light, as has
been under the consideration of the Adminis
tration for some time.
The plan sec is to be taking more definite
form, and it is hoped that actual accomplish
ment is not far distant. Of all the bills design
ed to allow borrowing from the Federal Gov
ernment during the past Legislature, the Popu lar
Government magazine tells us that those
receiving most universal support were the rural
electrification bills . Chapters 288 and 291 Pub
lic Laws, are companion laws creating a State
Rural Electrification Authority, with complete
control over the power of lcn:al communities to
establish rural electrification projects.
A survey of Sampson county shows that
there are 520 interested prospects already, and
that the length of miles surveyed with an idea
of carrying out such a project totals 103.53.
It is indeed one of the greatest movements
in the history of North Carolina, as we see it,
and will be carried to its completion, change the
entire outlook on life of those living in the rural
' sections' . '
Probably the women folks will profit most
from having electricity in their homes, for they
are indeed the burden bearers of the farm house.
Thousands of buckets of water that have
been carried by aching backs will flow at ths
mere turn of the spigot; the same current that
boils the coffee and toasts the bread will turn
the washing machine, iron the garments, and
keep in close touch with the outside world, and
life in general will take on a more roseate hue
in Carolina's rural section. Sampson Independent.

THE SAN'DS OF SELFISHNESS:
A long time ago the parable was told
of the man who buiit his house upon
the sand and it fell. During the cen
turies that have elapsed since the
telling of this paiab.e countless in
stances have verified its truth. A
house that does not have a good
i foundation will not sti.iui. In like
manner a life thai is not founded
upon .the principles of honesty, in
dustry, sobriety, fairness and jus
ice will not stand. Countless in
stances bear out the truth of this.
So many that the fact is accepted
everywhere without argument. The
'present world condition brings to
mind the thought that what is true
of a house and a life is likewise true
of a nation or an association of na
tions. They, like the house, if they
are to stand must be founded upon
the right foundations. As long as
greed and avarice and eovetousness
govern the policy of nations and men
there mill In? trouble and wars and
strife. The present condition of the
.whole world with its staggering war
debts, is an indictment against our
t oasted civilization ami culture. We
pride ourstlves upon our intelligence
and culture while at the same time
we make a miserabk failure of
