A general town meeting.' will be called in the near future, at which the present town; officials will submit a full and detailed; report of their stewardship of the town for the past year. This will be done before the campaign for the forthcoming town election is under full sway. This is a day of "Drives." A most important one is to begin on Monday, March 24th, and continue through the week. It is the campaign for. the collection Tf discarded . wearing ap parel for the Belgians. This cam paign willbe under the jurisdiction of vf. j cue uounty -led Cross, with .Mrs. J. W. Kennedy of Trvon as rh-rtnan. Dr. and Mrs. W. W. Gray received cablegram from their son.

It appears she was leading a mule to tne Darn wnen tne animai wheeled and kicked her, breaking the cheek; bone, and otherwise lacerating it. Mr. Stroshal is confined to his room with influenza and was unable to render any assistance. Mrs Stro shal was taken to a hospital , for treatment. Our neighboring little village, Lynn is certainly to be congratulated on her action last Tuesday in the matter of voting an additional school tax. There were 42 votes cast on the prop osition, and every single one of them voted FOR the tax. This indicates the fact that the people of Polk coun ty are awakening to the trmendous importance to be derived from better schools and longer terms. It is the duty of the present generation to see that the oncoming-one has every edu cational advantage that is within our gift. Education is the corner stone, of safety in a republic. Why the delay in the construction of the Tryon and Saluda highway ? The money is in the banks to be usefd for that purpose. Good weather is apparently here to remain for awhile, and the people who cast their votes in favor of this road are certainly en titled to at least know why something is not being done with it. The condi tion that this road has been m during the past few months clearly shows us the necessity of early action. The road should be completed and allowed to become in a settled condition dur ing the coming summer months. rrnn't force, the meeting at the school house next Monday afternoon at 1 o clock, we nope me w"d Trvon will turn out to mis meewug and give Mr. oaras anu wic classes of the .township your coopera tion Great questions are before the Xlo of the'Uole United States for . a ann.r.nf nut- ui m- w. - 4.ui mnotinff is the same as being agitated all over the country. ib Luis iii'.o " . . m nponle oi lryon nave , uv hfgout to tlS kind of meetings in the palt? but it is your duty to do so and 5... il a Vi.va a crood crowd there nXrSoFaftern.iWeBhope that as many ladies wm tuu,c Knainpss men of the town should be well represented. cm v riii. iiic , tv mud hole down by the tie yard to. being aiscuss, fm we " , ihat nuisance reierreu w . v-- . f wo hav times last year, a? w nrdiniri had so much i.JSS Kiff more of a-nuisance than in for mer vma Besides breeding malaria ndywe Trt d thai "it VL inve the relief.
