"Long May It Wave;'
SOME HEAL ESTATE
Last week we made mention of the
fact that Mr. M. A. Richards of
Orange, N.J. had rented the W. E.
Rankin cottage for the season. After
spending a week in Tryon they were
so pleased with their surroundings,
climate, scenery etc., they decided
they: could do no better than buy the
property, consequently a deal was
closed whereby they now own a pleas
ant home in Tryon. While we do not
know the price paid, we understand
it was a figure that was highly satis
factory to both parties.
i The C. J. Reigh property, just at
the .edge of town on the Landrum
road was. sold last week to Mr. C. T.
Ladson of Atlanta, Ga., who will
-make some extensive improvements
and -use; it for a summer home.- Mr.
Ladson has been in Tryon for some
time, occupying one of the Searles
cottages, -and is familiar with our ad
vantages as a pleasant place in which
to live, hence decided he wanted a
home here. A fair -price to ooth
buyer and seller was realized for this
property of thirty-five acres, t
i A deal was closed last week where
by Mr. C. P. Marriott disposed of
Crestwood Inn to Mrs. Perry, of ..she
ville. We do not know what. Mrs.
Perry's plans are, but the present oc
cupant, Mr. Chas. Leonard, has a
lease on the property which does not
expire until .May, We , are informed
that a good price was, realized for
BONDS AND SIDE WALKS.

As it now seems that some interest
is being manifested in . the matter of

a citizen of the town foA the p;

my views on the matter eiy brieiiv.
of issuing bonds in the sum of five
thousand dollars for cement walks,
because the money would be insuffi
cent to accomplish anything worth
Why -not follow the course of other
progressive towns and make a
bond issue worth while and get money
enough to not only build cement side
waiks.on the most populous streets,
but to improve other walks "where it
is not now practical to build cement
walks .and improve our sewer system
and put in fire hydrants where need

a bond issue for $25000.00 1 for this

Under the i Revaluation Act, our our
assessed, values will have - reached one
million dollars; or more and with a
levy; of : 15 cts. -on the one hundred
dollars of property, (on only one mil
lion dollars of valuation) we could
raise $1500 which sum will pay the
interest on . $25,000,00 of bonds.
If we do this, sell the bonds, and
