Oh, goodness, godness, Agnes, can we stand such a calamity as this? Will it be possible for Tryon to stand the shock? In all seriousness, we believe that Tryon will be much better off without the company of any such person; one that is so narrow-minded and little as this had better arrange to spend their va cations at Mushy-Mush Podunk or Possum Trot, where they can find all the red soil and mother earth that they desire to tread on. Are there any sugar "slackers" in this region? A woman on being told that she could have 25 pounds for canning, provided she would promise not io use it at tne table said that she wouldn't dare to agree to that. Another got her 25 pounds by telling how she and a neighbor were croinfir into competition over the numbers of cans they would put up. Later when the neighbor was asked about results denied going into any such arrange ment, and that the sugar buyer was doing any canning whatsoever. It is - 1 1 IT , risKy uusiness. uncie bam is very severe with hoarders, and those who pinch and save are very likely to re port those they find putting by sugar instead of putting up fruit. County Food Administrator Bacon is now having his troubles. Since the late sugar ruling has gone into effect he is daily besieged by those wanting more sugar than the ruling allows. The most frequent excuse, and the one which by the way is worn threadbare, is that the children re quire more than three pounds of su gar per montn. Mr. Bacon was heard to tell one person who came to him with that excuse Wednesday, that was quite likely, and that the older people would doubtless have to deny themselves in order to give the children more. True patriotism is now undergoing the "acid test." If you are a true-blue, genuine Ameri can you Will make no complaint, but go ahead and cheerfully comply with the sugar and all other rulings of the food administration and thank the stars that you are in the United States where you can get three pounds per month of sugar, instead of in 'England or France where they are allowed but one-half pound per week. Take your medicine and don't whine about it. Y'ou are no better than millions of those who bow in sub mission to the dictates of Mr. Hoover and say "Go ahead, Mr. Hoover, wc are with you." The time is at hand w'hen the true patriot can be easily picked out from the make-believe. There are those who have whooped and hurrahed, but now that the REAL TEST is here, are showing themselves in their true light. Don't say that you CAN T get along with less sugar than the ruling allows, Cfor you will have to anyway) but w -w-wr-ww -w . i -I 1 1 1 i say l WLL.L,, and tnus neip to ngnten the load of those who are doing all in their power to see that all get some, and that a few do not get more than they are entitled to. w. s. s TRYON WALKABOUTS AND TALKABOUTS. above them shall wave o'er the Bovs tnat are free and the Scouts that are brave.

One of 'em has a patient mother who sometimes loses her patience trying to get him into SMmev.h-ng besides mischief. "You're good for no'hing," she finally told him. "I don't want to be good 'for nothing,"' said the lit tle ten-year-older right off the bat. 'If you are good for a nickel I'll be good for the rest of the week."
