"Long May It Wave."
THE HOTEL PROPOSITION.
to call the attention of ev
ery public spirited citizen of Tryon
to the present status of the proposed
hotel company which some ofus have
been trying to form for the purpose
of securing another hotel in Tryon.
E very one. who wishes to see Tryon
improve as a resort town willv agree
that the most necessary step is to se
cure additional hotel accommodations.
We cannot expect outside capital
ists to cora(e here and-invest their
money in n enetrprise of this kind
unless the get considerable support
from Tryon people. JTryon has "wait
ed for years for just such an oppor
tunity as ijs now presented to us
through Mjr. Brown's proposition' to
build a; fine, modern hotel on the old
Mimosa site, if the citizens would
join "with, him in the formation of the
company. Now.it looks as though
the opportunity will be lost through
the lack of j support of the plan. Two
weeks ago ft looked as though the ho
tel was an assured fact, so much so
that many people seem to think that
it will be fcuilt anyway, without their
support. The result, is that many
people whej could subscribe and wno
would be benefitted by the hotel being
hereare siltting back and doing noth
ing, each one thinking, apparently,
that whethier they do or do not sup-
port the proposition in a financial
way, will make no difference as to
whether the hotel is built or not.If
each one oi these was alone in his at
titude it would not make any differ
ence, but today there are so many
who are standing back, waiting for
the other fellow to pull the chv-tnuts
out of the lire, that it looks as though
there woul d be no chestnuts and no
hotel. - -
We want t& make a final appeal to
every citizon of Tryon to' get busy
and make it his or her business to see
that we secure the hotel. We must
have cooperation now. A week hence
will be too Slate and we shall have seen
the opportunity slip' from us.

Why I Put Up With Rats for Years,"
Writes N. Wirdsor, Farmer.
"Years ago I bought, some rat pois
on, which nearly killed our fine watch
dog. It so scared us that we suffered
a long time with rats until my neigh
bor told me about RAT-SNAP. That's
the sure rat killer and a safe one."
