V 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. Editor News -Bee: As it now seems that some interest is being manifested in . the matter of providing:side walks for 'nyuii. and a a citizen of the town foA the p; twenty years , I would hke to expves 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 while.- ' 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 ed.'

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.
