D S2t West 19th Street. New York - City, is our sole AadexdusiTe Foreign Advertising Agent. "LonS May It Wave." Uwmg to the high cost v of news print paper and the possibility of not being able to sret it at any prce. we are- compelled to raise our' advertis ing rate. Beginning. January first 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 same ever increasing prices and know we' must make a profit or quit busi ness. ..iilifcui!

Here's hoping the election Will be unanimously in favor of the bonds. 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 ter, doing their shopping. Let us buy at other times and get better service, more prompt .delivery and make it easier on our friend, the merchants MORGAN SCHOOL.

A fund of more than $8,500, 000, which wlU be used In the 1920 ed ucational and preventive campaign, will be raised through the tale of the seals. Acquainted as he la with all ques tions of general health community Im provement and relief because of the nature of his work' and office. Dr. Far rand's endorsement la based upon as expert knowledge of what the Na tional Tuberculosis AssocUtlon.'bss ac complished and will accomplish la the future. His letter to Dr. Chsrles J. Hatfield, Managing Director of the Na tional Tuberculosis Association fol lows: "I have been greatly Interested ta the plans that the National Tuberculo sis Association is making for the sale of Christmas Seals during the coming holiday season. The success of that effort is indispensable to the carrying out of the farreachlng plans of the Association is Its fight ssslnst tuber culosis in this country.

The demand for the Health Bonds which the National Tu berculosls Association Issued this year for the first time are meeting with a ready sale. The bonds ; are in graduated denominations, the : smallest being for $5. In the past 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 . TJnited States. Last year the disease lalmed 150,000 lives. The health "s can be obtained from state and tuberculosis assoclatlens. ...
