New York City.- is our sole jad exclusive Foreign Advertising Agent. f ' " "Lonff May It Wave." 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 trade territory. 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 better.. i MILLIQNS GOING INTO ROADS Western States to Spend Much Money In Highway Construction and Needed Maintenance. . v Millions of dollars will be expended In highway construction and bridge work and maintenance by the states of the centraUW.est during the pres ent year, .according to data recently compiled by highway authorities.

F. LITTLE TRYON, N. C. "These Rats Wouldn't Eat My Grains." Says Fred Lamb. Best 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 $16 hat which has forced him to break into his savings, he does not impress the clerk who sells it or his friends who see him wTear it. But he has injured them all and himself also . Hp - has nirforl tn divert production W necessities to hfif J$T& Mate ox.

' 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. Build Roads Now.' ' If roads are. a good. thing, why no build ; themvjlnmediately instead-of waiting and; buffering - inconveniences for years to icome,- heeause it should be remembered that we are not sav ing ; any money by; acting In suchv a mannr.
