A special aeent of-tViA TT s T?pv-
enue Department was in Tryon, Wed
nesday, investigating the shipment of
beer now; in the : station here. He
took the names of the - physicians
whose names appeared to the orders
for beer, and is also going to investi-
gate tneir standing, in; the community
in " which they, reside!
In the mean-
time the beer remains
in full sight in

A story is goinc the rounds which
shows a side to Col. Roosevelt that
not many are familiar with. He was
found in his barn one day with, his
arm around the neck of Ouentm's po-
ny, the one which the boy rode up the
White House steps, and which is now
twenty years old, sofilv crying. Who
does not sympathize with a man in
such sorrow? Only a man with the
strong characteristics ! of ol. Roose
velt could gr eve o dee piy. "
The dawn of a new i and better dav
for Polk 'county is .right here. That
factvis clearly seen in the agitation
for better schools. Not only Tryon
has' taken up the' fight with that "end
in view, but Lynn and Sunny View
districts have asked that a special
election be; held in their districts to
vote additional tax in order to better
their . schools. The j requests - have
been granted, and elections have been
called in both: districts for March 11
Will they be successful Of course
they will. Improvement and better-1
raent is in the air, is contagious, and
nothing can stop it. If vou are hes
itating which way to go, don't do so

A DISSATISFIED MAN.
Some one commenting upon an. ar
ticle appearing m the NEW3 recent
ly, remarked that we appeared not to
be satisfied.. ;ic:,
That, party hit the nail square on
the head. No, ; we . are not satisfied,
and we hope to God that we never
shall be. v A satisfied man is! of rno
or his GOd. It is the dissaUshed peo
ple who make life worth living. ' .
1 Dissatisfied, ' Columbus discovered
America; Dissatisfied, the American
colonies .declared for and won their
independence; dissatisfied, the tele
phone was perfected: the electric
light invented; the steam engine and
all the' other discoveries and inven
tions which go to make life worth liv
ing brought into existence.
Show ;me a man who is , satisfied
and I will show you bne that is mean,
selfish and not to be trusted. Dissat
isfaction is responsible for all ad
vancement and progression, in the hu-
man race. If our forefathers had
been satisfied we wold all have beeri
subjects of some other nation and not
citizens of the United States today.
Dissatisfaction is what brought them
to America. After arriving here
they were not satisfied with condi
tions as? they found them and imme
diately proceeded ioimprove them.
Any m,n who is satisfied with what
little. he is able to do for posterity is
unworthy the name of man Dissatis
faction I with every day affairs is. re
sponsible for all improvements and
moral j upliftings. j Dissatisfaction
with trie old valei jco.up&nv Js, vhat
caused Tryon to purchase the plant.
Dissatisfiaction is the reason we are
endeavoringto improve the public
school isystem of Tryon. .
Why ) bless you, brother, we are dis
satisfied, and will not be satisfied so
long as life remains within our body.
We 4re very much dissatisfied, with
conditions that exist with many af
airs in ! Polk county. We are dissatis
fied with the lack of co-operation be
tween Tryon and the remainder of
Polk county; we are dissatisfied with
the poor roads in Polk county; we are
dissatisfied with the mail facilities in
Polk county; we are dissatisfied with
the dirty court house in Polk county;
Show me a man who is not, and we
will show you a man who has not the
interest and welfare of Folk county
at heart. Yes, we! are dissatisfied;
but not disgruntled!

POLK COUNTY RED CROSS.
The regular monthly meeting of the
executive committee was held Feb, 6.
An aDDoihtment was made for the
use of the civil relief committee, of
which the Rev. F; B. Makepeace is
chairman. The national headquarters
are planning some readjustment for
holding the organizaion in acive form
during times of peace; and until these
Elans! are perfected it was decided
est to leave our county organization
as it is. J . - ,. ;
The children's aprons that were
made! under such urgent conditions,
were shipped at the correct time and
in most satisfactory condition.
Mourning brassards to be worn on
the left sleeve by those"who have lost
relatives in the war can be had
through the Red Cross. They consist
of a regular black cloth band with a
gold star. They, are. given by the
Red Cross to the nearest relative and
sold at cost to , others. All privilged
to wear this brassard are asked , to
communicate with? the woman's work
in their section or directly with Mrs.
Holmes, in Tryon.
Ask your men: who are returning
from service what they, think of the
