Postmaster Steams requests that
when writing to a soldier in France
that you address the letter with pen
and ink and never with a lead pencil.
Letters come into the Tryon post
office that are almost impossible to
read, and by the time they reach New
York they cannot be read. Therefore
some are never delivered, while others
are otten delayed. Also be sure to
put the full number of the regiment
to wnicn tne soldier is attached.

to users of j)ower in this section. We
have not learned whether the dam
over Green river is far enough along
to generate current, or whether the
Blue Ridge company will secure tern
porary "juice" from the Southern
Power Company at Spartanburg.
Mr. W. H. Steams has retired from
the hotel business. It will be with
genuine regret that many winter vis
itors to Tryon will learn of this de
cision. Mr. Stearns has been ac
tively engaged in the hotel business
since 1895, with but one break during
that time, of three years. He enter
tained many tourists while proprietor
of the old Mimosa, and this hotel was
well and favorably known over a wide
section of the country. He has closed
Pine Hill and it is not yet known
whether it will be operated next sea
son or not.
Tryonites are often told by Ashe
villians that no climatic mishaps ever
come to that favored city. But Sun
day an out-and-out cloud burst with
much thunder and lightning, tore up
things, flooded cellars and washed
away pavements and sidewalks. In
spite of the downpour a house burned
to the ground, the firemen having to
wade up to their knees to get at it,
and were then unable to save it.
There can be no doubt about this, for
the Asheville papers actually admit
it. It's only a specimen of what
their "ideal climate" can do when it
starts in to do anything.
The storm of Saturday afternoon
was brighter and louder than Tryon
often knows. The unterrined were

All over the country, at this time,
girls are doing a big share not a
bit in helping win the war. They
have realized that individual effort is
almost lost, in the neatness of the
task to. be accomplished. Organiza
tions of all kinds have been formed to
concentrate this effort into a great
power. Among the girls, even the
young girls, the Patriotic League has
become a great factor not only in the
inspiration of the great need of pa
triotism at this time, but in carrying
out a real planned program of war
In almost every city of our country
the Patriotic League has accomplish
ed an astonishing amount of efficient
war work, and the girls themselves,
have set the high standard of charac
ter, desired at all times necessary
now by living up to the pledge.

The girls of Tryon and Lynn are
organizing their Patriotic League.
On Saturday night at 8:30, in the
Tryon school house, they will have
the first meeting of the League.
Every girl is urged to come, be
cause it is in the heart of each one to
do all in her power for her country,
andt his is her opportunity.
But the program will be of such in
terest that no one, old or young, can
anora to miss it.

JNo patriotic meeting is complete
without community singinsr. so everv

One could easily fancy the town was
being bombarded by Hunnish areo-
nlanes. Fortunately there were no
casualties and little damage. A tree
near Mrs. Leconte s was split m two
and her frightened horse broke out of
the stable and took to the road, borne
a letter from his son, Charlie, stating hens and chickens had the hysterics,
that he is at a Dort of embarkation
awaiting transportation to France:
He was pleased to learn that he had
a cousin in the same branch of service
as ho, and hunted him up. That' will
mean the shortening of many long
days after they arrive "over there.

from the Gulf Coast district defeated
both Vardaman and Noel in the first

coming to him. He has been akicker
