A blaze, discovered this morning *
shortly after 8 o'clock in the rear i
of the Flint Rock Filling Station, j
e mpletely gutted the building and
caused damage to the exterior.
Firemen answered' tlie tire call but 1
due to the fact that the station is <
located outside of the city limits it ,
required some time to get a water ,
line from a point near the South- ■
em passenger station to the burning ,
The fire spread rapidly in the build- i
ing. there being a quantity of grease, .
oil and other inflammable materia ,
that burned like so much paper. The
gasoline tanks were not exploded.
The filling station is leased by the “

A True Story.
Christmas Seals! Christmas Seals!
Who will buy?
lnerry, voice of a college, lad I
pealed forth across the campus on
the November air reaching the ears ,j
of a senior sitting in his room de
jected. careworn, heart sick. The
honor letter on his sweater, the de
bater's key. /the fraternity emblem
each told its story of achieyeirient
and happy days.
j His roommate awkwardly pounded
his shoulder saying. "It is just a
slight attack, old man. You will be
well in no time. The doctor said
tuberculosis is easily cured when it
is fought scientifically in the early
stages. Your stay in the sanatorium
will be a short one.”
Brave, smiling, head erect and face
forward; the senior put aside his
dreams., folded away his cherished
plans, Went to the sanatorium and
fought the fight. Days lengthened in
to weeks, and weeks into months un
til one shining, glorious day the doc
tor said the longed-for word. 'Cured.’
"Tell my story.” said this college
senjor. "Tell it to every student in
North Carolina. Teach them that I
might have been spared this trial' if
the health message of the Christmas
Seals had been told to me while I
was a child in school; had the health
habits which help to prevent tuber
culosis been trained into my life
while it was easy to acquire them.”
Christmas Seals; Christmas Seals!
Who will buy? Each has its message
of hoiie. each its weapon to
fight the Great White Plague.
Two Cent Stamps For Postal Cards. ■
Notwithstanding the fact that the
postal rates enacted by Congress last'
February, effective April 15th, 1925.
increasing the rate on private mail
ing cards have been repeatedly pub
; lished in all newspaper, some people
continue to place one-eent stamps
thereon, local post office employes
state. Christmas and New Year greot
-1 ing cards, enclosed in envelope or
otherwise require two cents postage.
Not to place tlie correct postage on
them delays dispatch and delivery
and when the addressee has to pay
the additional postage it takes away
the spirit of joy apd goodwill which
they are intended to convey.
