BEE AND NEWS MERGED
'The merging of The fry on Bee
and Polk County News was accom
plished last Saturday. The two pa
pers will be published as one begin
ning with this issue.. The limited
field-made it rough sledding for two
papers in Polk County and the logi
cal thing has come to pass, thanks
to Mr George E Morton and th loyal
citizens of Polk, who made the merg
er possible. '
Mrs Morton has been retained to
write the Tryon news as she has
done for The Bee for several years.
( Bee subscribers will have their
time extended, where they are also
subscriber for The News. Exclusive
Bee subscribers will have their time
extended also pro rate on the basis
of One Dollar a year, at which price
we will sell .the combined papers.
The Dollar a year newspaper is fast
passing away for obvious reasons,
but we think it the part of wisdom t
continue at a dollar, thus increasing
our circulation, second to none in
Western North , Carolina.
Advertisers can readily see the ad
vantage of the combined circulation
at no advance in price for space
over twice the circulation at the
We have in mind severa1 improve
ments in the paper at an early date
of which we will'not go into details,
preferring to suprise you.
To carry out these plans it was
necessary to organize a company
which is being done. The annou ce
ment of the names of these loyal
. citizens will be made later.
TRADE AT HOME
Every dollar you send out of Polk
County stays away. When you spend
your money at home a portion of
that money stays in the county, and
you have a chance of getting it back.
i Spend your money at home, build
up business. You will get better
goods at the same prices, freight and
time considered. The mail order
liouse has more expense than the
home merchant. The cash you in
tend to send away, spend at home
and you will be better pleased.
The News is chock full of ads this
week, read' them and trade with
the advertisers in y cur home paper.
They are your neighbors and friends.
The mail order" man cares only for
North Carolina, Polk County, in
the Superior court.
