Keep Out the Moisture.
A very effective agent for moisture
proofing wood has been found in an
aluminum leaf coating. This coating
practically insulates the wood against
any change in atmospheric conditions,
and is particularly valuable for use
where accurate form and balance must
be maintained, as would be necessary
in an airplane propeller.
Great Care Taken of Silk.

crops are removed and nothing re
turned to compersate for the loss "of
plant food that went into the crop,
the land is left poorer. We must
learn once for all that we . . cannot

when we grow a crop of corn, wheat,
cotton, hay or any other crop, the
soil gives up part of its fertility to

The two following ' incidents vshow
I that Tryon people, if not leading a
cat-and-dog life themselves, are tak

While devouring a tender fried pul

possessed only by the Tryonese,- de
nounced a neighbor's cat for devour-
ing humming-Diros. jne was re
minded that the famous old Roman
epicure who made a feast of nightin
gales' tongues, was not a cat, but a
human being who ate pullets as well
as hightgale?. However a; cat that
will eat humming-birds, instead of
English sparrows, has not been well
brought up. It needs training.
Among Tryon talk-abouts is sheep
raising, it's reaiiy a question oi aog
raising; whether the people of Polk
county would rather raise sheep or
hunt rabbits. A vagabond dog re-
centlty became the mother of a litter
of six, near a Tryon residncee and the
women of the household when they
heard of it rushed to the spot to
have the whole batch, drowned of
course? Not on your life!

any. It was a sublime cocktail " .of

January and February temperature

blue sky above, the most splendid of

higher, serener or more dignified.
