Last week we published an article
under the above caption, written by a
gentleman who has been a winter vis
itor to Tryon for many yearsj A-
;4 ..we said in our . comments that this
was' not our views, but that jwe gave
in merely to show how : we looked to
outsiders, t hoping that our people
would take it in the spirit, in which it
was intended. If there is nof grounds
for the complaint, then nobody is
hurt. If such conditions actually ex
ist, then the gentleman is doling us a
favor in pointing them out.
But in some things we do riot agree
with the writer of the letter. In oth
ers there is no gainsaying that he is
not correct. -
We do deny the charge that we are

The soldiers who encapmed near

most assuredly do not think the town
asleep. Many things were done for
their amusement and comfbrt, and
they left here loud Sri their praises of
Tryon. The New York Sun gave us
an extendea write-up and gave us
great praise. Tryon ! was the first
town in this part of the stato to open
soldiers' club and reading room.
Next the good ladies of the town con

for the soldiers, and with the aid of
the enterprising men of the town was
made a reality the first night. Again,
