This hotel is to be erected in Laurel Park and will contain ever one hundred rooms with the latest conveniences. The need tor more hotel facilities at this popular place has never be fore been so keenly felt as it is at pre sent. The hosterly there now is full of guests and the waiting list has ever two hundred names of persons anxious for an opportunity to spend the summer at this place. Over 50 persons were turned away before the 1st of July, and more than 600 alto gether, notwithstanding the fact that no advertising has been done. No mere.,. evidence than this is needed to assurethe success of the venture and demonstrate the urgent need for addi tional accommodations. - No" better " location than the one selected could have been secured. The elevation above Main street will be two hundred and fifty ' feet. A commanding view . of Hendersomille and the magnificent scenery of this section can be better secured from this site than from any adjacent sec tion of the ' country. Tourists look ing fw a place, whence they will have -an unobstructed view of some of the best, mountain scenery ia Western North Carolina vrill find f ie view from this hotel all; and even more than they had expected. All visitors as well .as townspeople are familiar with the natural ibeauty: of this suburb of the city: and will agree that no more-promising -site" for a PROTBT ttmilORS An Interested Citizen Offers Some . - : , Tiaieiy Suggestions. ; To the Editor : . I r ' - Many thousands of . strangers . are now in Hendersonville! ' Many opportunities of practicing extortion upon these visitors are pre sented. , '' . - Quick and drastic action is com mendable when a chance Offers itself of making a public example of anyone guilty of so imposing upon the city's Visitors. - -v , . '"":-';' Any other course would be serious ly detrimental to - this resort's -befct interests. A case in point is this: A visitor here, a guest -cf theXaiu el Park Retreat was cempelled to 'pay twice fev the transfer of her-trunk ' from the depot to the Retreat. The trunk check was delivered, on . the train, to an agent of the Tranfer Comuany and the usual charge of fifty cents was then paid. : When the trunk was later delivered at the Retreat,' the Transfer Companys driver insisted upon collecting a. sec ond fifty cents, in spite of the lady's earnlst protests that the charge had already been paid, and was so indi ,' caied upon;the trunk check, i.v . The driver persisted,' however,- in collecting again, and exceedingly em '. fcarrassed at being placed in the false position of endeavoring to avoid pay ment for services rendered the lady did pay a second time. v- ; Fcv - the : sake of the principle in volved, and for the purpose of help to prevent similar, cases of extortion, the attention 6f , the Hendersonville Transfer Company wa3 called to the laatter. . ,v . . ': -'-.-. 'i The Transfer Company immediate-' . ly refunded-: the second charge ccl t Jected. In ran effort to discover the ; . identity of the guilty employees,, tvfo ':l of their' drivers were sent to the Re treat. One of them, when asked why he did not turn in the fifty cents col lected, replied that he "forgot to." : If this man is still in the employ ; of the Hendersonville Transfer Com pany, occupying a position' .offering . .countless opportunities to goi'jge the ipnblic.is not this case of extortion . a matter properly coming within ' the jurisdiction of the police? j The average man or wamon prefers , to spend a hundred dollars to being gouged out of ten cents. j Tflis one instance nas . come to ' ' light. ;-.

The peopld. behind this movement are men of unquestioned financial ab ility as well as of stern moral worth and the, suspicion ' of their failing with this project is not to be;ccusid ered for one moment. They are the same type . of men who never . take a backward look once their ; hand ; has grasped the plcugh and, in this in stance, there will b& no question of a false start or a weakening : of en thusiasm when the crucial time comes. - There is no doubt that this hotel will be in readiness for the season next year and it will be a decided ad- dition to the buildings of a public na ture in this section. Nothing will be left undone in the erection of .this hotel which will add to the conven ience or pleasure of the guests. No halfway measures will be taken but it will be thcroughly modern in every particular. ; ' - ' . .- ; Plans for the erection'of this -hotel arc now- beir.g drawn by vth wo"I kno-wn yoi-ng architect,' '.Mr- .IT, C.

THE SMM ID PM (ILS We have heard it said that, if the Spartanburg girls could see some of the tight-wad Spartanburg lads blow ing in their coin on the summer maid ens around Hendersonville they would not believe their - eyes. Spartanburg Herald. . ' - ; And when the allesred "' "tisrht-wad ?;:aitanburg lads" first beheld the superlbeauty of the "summer maidens aiound Ilendei sonville," they "would net. believe their eyes," either. ". ' ; Their first glimpse cf the dress pa rade, a daiiy occurrence on Main niieet, was. a revelation to them of girlish loveliness in its most intoxi- tiug masculine unbalancing forms. True, some of the forms were delight fully suggested by the tight-fighting, scant skirts the dear creatures wear, but that detracted not, one little bit from the Spartanburg visitors pleas ure. They gazed, open mouthed, wide-eyed, unbelieving and incredu lous, at first. But they were from Spartanburg, yoa know.' and thev were mere men, after all, so it took tnem not long to awake from their hypnotic trance and get in the game. The allegation that these boys are "tight-wads" is indignantly - refuted, denied, and hurled back into the very teeth of the Spartanburg Herald. They came here parched, athirst and hun gering for girlish beauty. . In Hender sonville, right here in Hendersonville, famed as the natural home and habi tat'of the prettiest girls in the world, they- found a refreshing oasis of beauty and in the perfectly natural re-action they ARE blowing in their good Spartanburg coin in a manner pleasing to themselves and most grat ifying to the visions of .loveliness, na tive and visiting now herel l : Of course, there are depressing prospects, for Spartanburg girls, of a financially hard winter. But in the meantime there isn't a single, solitary Spartanburg tight-wad in Henderson ville. Not one. Ask 'any girl here ask the candy stores the drug stores the livery people the. garage plu-toc-rptf? ask anvore (--: tbem, and if you tell 'em you're from Spartanburg they immediately . send . to the bank for more change even before you say what you want. - - Spartanburg boys-tighwads!

Promptly at 8:30 exercises were begun with a song by members of the different . church choirs of the city, followed by a prayer by DrR. H. Grinnan of the Presbyterian church. Rev. J. W.

The subject of Dr. Rcid's' theme was: "The Far East." With an easy, fluent flow of words and a clear, com prehensive understanding of his sub ject he immediately began a most in structive and lucid expounding rf conditions as found In the Chinese Ejirwire Among other things, he showed that China instead of being one of tbe more recent nations typified by tbe common laborers to whom we hand our weekly accumulation of linen, has a history antedating that of any other nation and that the real China man is far superior to the ones usual "Baby Siiow" m 25 The "Baby Show to be given here on August 25th. is to be tbe biggest event, in its paitieuldr.linc, ever hap pening in the Scuth.
