Uwmg to the high cost v of news

being able to sret it at any prce. we
are- compelled to raise our' advertis

our .rates, for , display advertising
will be 20 cents per inch. - Until that
time we will accept - contracts at the
old rate of 15 cents.' All space not
contracted for before January first
will be charged for at .the; advanced
rate.' We dislike to do this but if we
continue in business and pay our bills
there is no other way out. ? Our, ad
vertisers will see the justice of this
as they are all confronted with the

There is one thing that always did
seem strange to us "and that is why
the people living in towns will wait
- until Saturday to lay in their supplies,
- when they could just as easily do so
on any other day in the week. On
last Saturday we noticed that there
were quite a number of Tryon people
busy laying in a supplyof goods tnat
they could as easily have bought on
Friday or any other day in the week
when the merchant was not nished
waiting on his country ' trade and
would have gotten much better ser
vice and quicker deliverv. .Thiel
should not be. We people in' town
should buy our goods at some other
time and leave our merchants free to
wait on the country trade, many of
whom have ' " to drive from 1 five to
twelve of more miles to get home af

at other times and get better service,
more prompt .delivery and make it

HEALTH BONDS POPULAR.
The demand for the Health

this year for the first time are
meeting with a ready sale. The bonds
; are in graduated denominations, the

some of the large business houses and
other large contributors found It dlffl-
:cult to use up the number ef Jted
Cross Seals their subscriptions called
for. The bonds have been issued for
' the convenience of large subscriber
and the proceeds of their sale will be
used for the same purpose as the
' Christmas Seal funds the financlnf
of the 1920 effort to reduee the num
ber of deaths from tuberculosis In the
