Mr. James Leonard has recently ne
gotiated the sale of Villa Barbara to

discharge from the aviation service at

For knocking elbows with people
from the ends of the earth, Tryon, for
its size; has a right oh the map. Ev
ery how and then perfect strangers
soon after their arrival find them
selves good friends on account of some
relative or acquaintance once living
elsewhere whom both know. In this
way they frequently get the latest
news of the absent ones..
We are reliably informed that Mrs.
R. G. Kirchner has sold her house and
contents to Mr. J. N. J ackson, of
Jackson & Jackson. This probably is
the most valuable "iece of property
in Tryon as the house was built in an
exceptional way. The consideration
for the property is unknown but
whether it be at a high price or a low
one Mr. Jackson is to be congratulat
ed on having bought this piece of
The Polk County Chapter of the
American Red Cross has 'tinder con
sideration the forming of a class for
the instruction of Home Hygiene and
Care of the sick. The instructor will

In a letter accompanying copy for
the "Farm and Home Department of
this paper, conducted by Mr. J. R.
Sams, he says: "I was at Gray'
Chapel yesterday with Mr. C. C. Prof-
fit, Rutherford's excellent young
county agent. It was a joint meeting
and a good one, taking the form of a
picnic as dinner was served on a long
table and the good ladies of Polk and
Rutherford counties showed, as they
always can, how to take care of the
trifling men who ravenously destroyed
the fried chicken, pies, cakes, fruits,
pickles, etc. A community club was
organized and will hold its next meet
ing Friday, evening, September 5.
Mr. J. B. Hester returned Friday
morning from a two-weeks explora
tion of the state of Texas, where he
visited his brother and other relatives
at Fort Worth and vicinity. He rode
hundreds of miles by auto over one
county bigger than Connecticut, an
other bigger than Delaware and
Rhode Island combined. He saw the

After the Fire.
When fire has swept a bit of wood
land the flowers that start the follow
ing season are -often not the same as
grew there before and frequently are
strange to the locality. Queer legends
have grown up to account for this fact,
but the explanation is in reality very
simple. Down under the surface soil
these seeds have be'en waiting no one
knows how long. They never had a
chance before fire gave It.
A pretty compliment was that Philip
IV of Spain, himself a painter, ten

Words Most in Use.
It is declared by a philologist that
line words do one-fourth of the verbal
.vork, and 34 words one-half. The
line most useful words are: And, be,
iave, it, of, the, to, will, you. The 34

The conception of the past and the
future is well illustrated in the case
of a little boy who said to his mother

chat babies cannot speak until they
ire twelve months old or more." It Is
because they come straight from heav-

soon as they were born they would

let them speak until they have almost
