Presbyterian Church Has New Organ h FAMOUS BROOK SIDE ORCHARD NE.4R WAYNESVILLE IS SOLD. Negotiations of importance to the apple industry in Haywood county was consumated with the sale of Brook side by the estate of the late Colonel R. P. Johnston to C. A. Black, former ly of Charlotte. Lying two miles from Waynesville, on the Pigeon Gap road, Brookside covers an area of about 100 acres and I ' 'contains a growth productive of Wine saps, Stayman's, Romes, Newtown Pippins, York Imperials anl other stable varieties, well adapted to the climate conditions of this area. The orchard is equipped with a storage plant and the various other essentials l the harvesting and marketing of a full yield. Transfer of Brookside marks the relinquishment by the Johnston estaie of the last of iit:: o.vhr.rcl properties and cs Mr. Black, foi merly in the t'an-f.r business :! Clrirlol'e and now holder of coTv.l Table liu. incss t.ronjrty here, rank a.: one of the coun ty's principal It'Liiit "Towers. Ksti niatel of hi-; total orchard holdings Mm well in excess of .'100 m res. Some time sgo he established a residence on the orchard that adjoins Brookside. The tract was once known as the Old Hoggs orchard, the trees havine, been set out by one of the pioneer in vestors of the Goodyear family hold ings now include the Goodyear Welt Company. It was in the Johnston family 14 years and was one of Col onel Johnston's best producers. In asmuch as apple trees bear fruit until they or 75 to 125 years of age, the Black acquisition is regarded as being in its prime. Friends pay high tribute to the new owner and point to him as the type of fruit grower who is welcomed by producers hereabouts. He is the sort of man who believes in the invocation of modern methods of growing and selling fruit and who is not wedded to old and obsolete ideas. He is typi cal, too, of a large element of the prosperou$ residents of the Land of the Sky, being attracted here as va cation seeker with no idea of ever putting any money into these sur rounding hillsides. Black decided a few years ago that a brief outing in the mountains would give him a rest he needed and would invigorate him for the coming win ter's business. He wasn't sick or suf fering; was just a victim of that run down feeling to which the medicine advertisements often refer. He got to walking around Waynesville, where he was visiting to enjoy the sunrise; and first thing he knew, he was climb ing a little higher on the hillside ev ery morning without any sacrifice of strength. A tour that tired him dur ing the early part of his stay merely inspired him to cover moie territory after a few weeks and he listen to the stories told of appl" growers' profits. The result ha-, been set forth. BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION. Dr. B. F.

C. -p0 ,ne Editor: Having been a life long edmirer of the famous Christian General and statesman and believing him to be, as indeed a majority of Americans do, one of the out-standing men of our country, I am deeply interested 'n any movement to perpetuate his mem "v through an appropriate and suit able memor' J. The fact hat I have not seen in th- papers or b :oks any mention of any attempt hr.ving been made to start a movemen' toward the erection of a Stonewall Jaqkson Memorial College, prompts me to write to ask if such a memorial has not been considered and if not your idea as to the practica bility of it. Note such memorials have been erected in memory of other famous generals and statesmen and it occurs to rrie that no more fitting tribute could be paid by the Ameri can people to one of its most famous gmerals than a Stonewall Jackson Memorial College erected in one ofj the Southern States.
