A FRIENDLY TOWN WITH
A HELPFUL SERVICE.
Business not charity. It is said
that charity should begin at home but
when we say, "Trade in Tryon," , we
are not speaking of charity at all but
strictly of a business proposition one
of benefit both to the frnaji;lo slls
and the man who buys. Tryon is a
good trading point. It's 'a liieT com.-
m unity center. It's a friendly t ,twn
with a helpful service a town where
you get more for your farm produce"
than elsewhere and we want ,to im
press you with these facts and we
take this means of talking , to you
the good people who live in the Tryon
We believe in the progressive peo
ple of this community. We. believe
that 99 per cent of them really want
to support the home business and
professional man, the man who is at
their beck and call everv day in the
year and who is sincerely interested
in the welfare of the community his
home and the home of his family.
And beieving thus our merchants are
making every effort to serve efficient
ly, to : live un to - their obligations as
business men. They are " carrying
well selected stocks, are selling on a
fair and egitimate margin of profit
and are extending ' every: courtesy
consistent with good; merchandising.
As to Mail order houses. They
have no quarrel with the man who
patronizes the mail order house. All
they ask is that the people of this ter
ritory give them a chance at their
trade before sending their money
away to strangers. Come in and com
pare their prices and quality (don't
forget the quality, please) with the
pretty things you see PICTURED in
the catalogue. Remember, you do
not Tiave to pay for anything before
you get it, and that their personal
guarantee is behind everything they
selL Their goods and their service
must be satisfactory to you.
They want to know you better. If
you live in this territory and are not
trading in Tryon, it may be their
fault. If it is they want to correct
it. Come in and let's -get betterVac
quainted. Maybe we do not, under
stand each other as we should. We
want, to treat you fair in every way
and we believe you want to do the
same by us. A mutual understand
ing between the business men of
Tryon and the people of the surround
ing trade territory must be of much
benefit to all. Let's know each other

"These Rats Wouldn't Eat My
Grains." Says Fred Lamb.
The man who said conceit was at
the bottom of every extravagance
knew a good deal about human
nature. Few men would pay $4 for a
tie that did not look as if it cost $4
and the factory girls in Connecticut
who are buying $300 fur coats on in
stallments out of a salary of $15 a
week would are little for such a coat
if the only place they could wear it
were in an asylum for, the blind.
A modern philosopher says, "I con
clude that dissatisfaction is a com
mon human aibnent and that I might
as Well be unhappy with what I have
as unhappy with what I , can't afford."
Thosinds of Americans are dissi
pating their savings in extravagant
purchases purely through conceit.
And it is a blind conceit which de
ceives no one , but the extravagant
hemselves. When a man goes into a
store to buy a $6 hat which he can af-
brd and comes out with a $16 hat
which has forced him to break into his
savings, he does not impress the clerk
who sells it or his friends who see him
wTear it. But he has injured them all
and himself also . Hp - has nirforl tn

SAVING OF IMPROVED ROADS
Report of Congressional Committee
Shows 8 Cents Per Ton Per Mile
' Can Be Saved. '
The report of the Joint congressional
committee which investigated high
way economics in 1914 shows that a
saving of 8 cents per ton mile can be
effected in transportation costs when
a road is lifted from the dirt to the
durable class. This does not take In
to account Increased real estate valua
tion or social advantages ' resulting
from the Improvement.
