Three public addresses of more
ih-' ’‘’'.al interest were delivered in , , ,, ,
with the commencement!-tnd highly ap-
exercises. The first was on Sunday j preciatea
morning at the Methodist church,
when the baccalaureate sermon was i j which will tell in time,
and through all eternity. I am nov/
I have done a great deal
of solid pioneer and foundation work
preached to a large audience of town-
people and visitors by Rev. O. J.
Chandler, D. D., of Asheville. Dr.
Chandler took as his text Psalms 33:
12, “Blessed is the nation whose God
si the Lord.” His mesage, addressed
primarily to the graduating class,
was delivered with great earnest
ness and made a deep impression on
his audience. His subject was patri
otism and religion, which he declared
were the two things necessary for the
preservation of civiization.
Sunday night at the Methodist
church Dr. Chandler made a strong
appeal in ehalf of Christian educa
tion, a subject now prominently be
fore the Southern Methodist churcK.
Dr. W. I. Cranford of Trinity Col
lege delivered the annual commence
ment address Tuesday night. He
£poke on the voices calling to youth,
and rose from the lower to the high
er of these voices, making a climax of
the call to love as the greatest incen
tive and inspiration to human attivi-
very weak and feeble, almost helpless.
A word to the wise is sufficient.

The various exercises closed with dents for their homes.
There will be services at the Bap
tist Church next Sunday morning and
night at the usual hours, conducted
by a minister among those visiting in
A^eville. Members are urged to
be present on that day.
Following the decision reached last
Week and faithful to the agreement
then made, the merchants of Bre
vard, with very few exceptions, have
laid their plass for making next Sat
urday a Bargain Day.
Co-operation has l>€en entered into
in one particular. The merchants
have combined in the general move
ment. The prices offered, liowever,
are each man's own.
It is plaimed to induc« the coun
try people to come to town to buy,
and to induce also the town people to
make their purchases at home. The
merchants ’♦rant U>e peeple to know
that they can get bargains here—
right here ia Brevard and they hav«
agreed upon one Big Day for a dem
Having once launched the scheme,
the merchants have entered into it
with the true Brevard spirit, and they
say they are going to make genuine
bargains for the benefit of their cus
tomers. There is hardly a man who
has not marted down prices for Ujis
An evidence of tlie spirit of co-
operatien in this movement may l>e
seen the niewspaper advertisements
this week. Read them over carefully
The business men are extending
the hospitality of the town to the
folks from the county. They are
writing “Welcome” over the gates
of the city, and they seem determined
to let nobody get away dissatisfied.
The entertainment of the people
also will be provided for. There will
be basball at the new diamond. Ne-
.ffotiations have been entered into with
Hendersonville and it is hoped that
a team from that place will be here.
Cut Hendersonville or no Henderson
ville, the promoters of the national
nport are going to see to it that base
ball is played.
“Trade at Home,” is the slogan.
And of course the Brevard News
intends doing its part—One Day Only
Saturday. We will give one year’s
subscription for one dollar cash. Any
<sne can renew or add another year
