Morton donated at. least miy peucci ar
row heads, spear points, etc., beside
numerous specimens of minerals. Mr.
vm Rrownlee also made a substan-
tial donation. Every specimen was la
beled with both its common and vscien-
ific name. I am unable to state where
he collection is now as itAvas removed
piece meal to make room for new books.
Besides this Polk County ' collection
Prof. Green gave the city in trust for"
the white school children his larger mus
eum comprisiag about J 1 300 specimens
f minerals, 450 fossils, 550 shells, be
sides sponges, corals, etc, an herbarium
of over 4000 plants. A room was sup
posed to be fitted up in the Graded
School building for it but it was neglect
ed and shortly afterwards the donor died
suddenly, when the house was sold in
which he had the museum the collec
tion was moved to the City Hall : and I
luppose now rests 'thejje, paclcjej&iaway
in boxes. '
Prof. Green was a very quiet, unos"
tentatious man and very few' of the citi
zens of Tryon had taken the trouble
to visit it and did not realize "the intrinsic
worth of the exhibit. . It is' known to
cellectors, however, for the undersigned
has had communication from curators of
different museums, also from P. P. Clax-
ton. Chief of the U. S. Bureau of Edu
cation, asking what had become "ot- the

Many People think that they, help
Uncle Sam by not cashing their in
terest Coupons from .Liberty Bonds.
It does not help Uncle Sam to do
this .l)ut on ; the contrary - it ."clogs

aside ; for the one purpose and : can
not bev used for any other purpose
so it is urged that all bond-holders
cash their ? coupons as : they fall due
thereby helping Uncle Sam in his big
job of accounting. -Many A of : our
customers open a savings: account
with their, coupon's and deposit them
