TRYON WALKABOUTS J
AND TALK ABOUTS.
Climate teaches us geography bet
ter than the maps. A recent ar
rived Northern visitor, charmed with
the fine autumn here said to a Tryon
woman. "How glad you must be to
have it so clear and warm after this
cold, rainy, dismal fall" "But it's
been so riglt along," said the Tryon
ite, surprised. And it took some time
for both to comprehend that Michi

1,000 miles apart, the weather hi one
State gives no clue to the kind they're
having in another. Big country.

have been worth $5000 more had the

The women have got well deserved
credit for their Red Cross work. A
Tryonite says that ever since the war
began he's had a red, cross wife, be
cause she's had her, kitchen work to
do. . - s

the chairman of the Red Cross meet

everybody, should do their part in the
great work, so he'd move to adjourn.
And it was carried unanimously , too.
"There's nothing half io sweet in
life, as love's young dream' says the
poet. But after Tryon women have

"sugar," granulatd or lump, for
love's young dream. - For sugar is

A solid' Tryon citizen has shown
some interest in shortening the chain
gang sentence of a blockader on the
somewhat unusual plea that the
whiskey he ,made was in every way
superior o the usual run of the stuff
that eats' up the "innards" f those
who drink it. The solid citizen said
that his release therefore would be a
public benefit. The superiority of his
product was due, it seems, to the su
periority of his copper still. Some
of, his competitors wishing to be pub
lic benefactors themselves stole his
apparatus. In his philanthropic in
nocence he complained to the officials
and asked their aid aid to recover his
proprty. Thereupon he was tried and
sentenced. There are queer peopta
in this world By "queer" I mean
those who don't think and act as I
do. Perhaps I will yet meet some
body trying to get a counterfeiter
released, on the ground that he made
such fine bank bills they " couldn't De
told from the genuine and so nobody
suffered any loss, the currency was
increased' and business helped.
