BREVARD, N. C. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1922
Carr Lumber Co., Gloucester Lum
ber Co., Toxaway Tanning Co.,
Opening Business Beeter.
By B. G. Leiper.
That the long expected and eagerly
awaited change for the better in busi
ness conditions is taking place at Bre
vard and the surrounding territory
is .conclusively demonstrated by the
announcements of awakened or new
industries in that section.
The Gloucester Lumber company,
at Rosman, started up mill operation
this week after months of forced idle
ness; the Toxaway Tanning company
at the same point, starts up upon a
full time basis within a very few days
officials announce, and the Pisgah
Banking company opened up on
BToad street in Brevard on the first
of the month, in the face of the fact
that in other sections long established
banks have been retrenching and in
certain cases some have been forced
to close their doors. A planning and
dimension mill is now being installed
by the Carr Lumber company at Pis
gab Forest, just outside of Brevard.
The Gloucester Lumber company
plant, at Rosman,. has a maximum cut
of between 35,000 and 40,00 feet a
day and employs upward cf 35 or
more men at the mills. Some 200
men work 'in the woods operations
carried 'on under contract upon the
2,000-acrc tract of hardwood timber
once a part of the Vanderbilt estate.
The company is one of the four large
industries of that section headed by
Joseph S. Silvcrstecn, who is now in
the north upon business matters.
About 22 miles of standard gauge
track serves the big forest area, and
the rolling stock includes three loco
motives, 40 cars and a loadcrr.
The Toxaway Tanning com.-' ,
also one of the big industries v:r'?
the direction of Mr. Silvcrsteen, af
teT running with greatly ' rer1""
output for months, plans rmme.r.j
resumption of capacity production,
this being 200 hides a day. Between
85 and DO men are employed in the
plant at times of normal output.
The Pirgah Banking company, just
opened in Brevard, occupies splendid
ly equipped new quarters in the mo
dern brick business building con
structed by J. II. and Charles Pickle
simer, two of the leading business
men of the town, the former being
president of the new banking com
pany. The subscribed stock is $30,
000, of which $15,000 has already
been paid in.
The officers are J. H. Picklesimer,
president; William B. Davis, of Syl
va, active vice-president; Louis P.
Hamlin, cashier; and W. W. Crouse
born, vice-president. They report an
auspicious start and are most opti
mistic of future growth in a thriving
Ju?t below Brevard, at Pisgah For
est, the visitor sees activp construc
tion under full swing upon a large
dry kiln and a planning mill to be
come important additions to Carr
Lumber company yars at this point.
The company plans soon to put out
dimension stock. Much of the output
from the planning mill and Tesaw
plant will go to the furniture plants
throughout Western North Carolina,

There was brought to completion
a few days ago and is now in use the

they have been brought to a focus

county will get the long-desired Tran
sylvania topsoil highway, from the
Travelers Rest section to Caesar's
Head there connecting with the road
from Brevard, N. C, and linking up
the Sapphire Country and Greenville.
Greenville also will get the improve
ment sought on the Anderson street
Dunham's bridge highway and on the
road to Kay's bridge, over Saluda
Definite decision to build these high
ways, and to do it by the $75,000
bond issues plan as proposed some
days ago, was reached at a meeting
of the Greenville legislation delegat
ion held in the capitol at 9:30 o'clock
this morning. Judge John T. Bram
lett was the only member absent, ill
ness preventing h3 attendance. The
decision cf the delegation to pass the
bill providing for this $75,00.0 bond
issue was unanimous, and the bill to
day was introuced. Bat a short time
will claprc before actual work will be
gin oa the mountain highway and the
other two roads included.
While indications pointed to fa
vorable action by the delegation in a
greoing to provide for this road, as
previously reported in the Greenville
News, not until the meeting did it
become certain that the universal de
'mand in the country for the road
would be acceded to. The "unani
mous vote came as a surprise to some,
although it was known that members
of the delegation, not?h1" "r '"vzz

ing th er ire delegation vote toge
ther as a body .Mr. Gresham voted
for the bill, reversing to som extent
his previous view because of the de
mand of the road.
The "bond issue bill calls for the
icsuar.ee of $75,000 in bonds by the
county supervisor, the bonds to run
20 years and to bear interest at a
rate not exceeding 6 peT cent. Mem
bers of the delegation said today that
they feel positive the bonds can be
rold at a rate of 5 per cent interest
and they expect to so issue the bonds
as to yield not more than 5 per cent.
NEXT TO LAST SERMON TN THE
The sixth, and next to the last, ser
mon in the series now being pTeached
by Rev. Chas. C. Smith,' in the Baptist
Church on Sunday evening on the
general subject, "Men of Old Tim?
and their Lessons for New Time Men,
will be preached on next Sunday
night on the theme, "Elijah, th Man j
Of even greater interest thn this
series is another series of morning
sermons that Mr. Smith has just be
gun on the book of Matthew. The i
two sermons that he has preached
from this book have been, "The char
acter of Matthew's Gospel," and "The
Purpose of Matthew's Gospel". C
next Sunday morning the first seven
teen versos of the book will be
scripture basis for the sermon. These
verses give the genealogy of Jesus,
and seem to be only a list of name
However, this list is full of signifi
cance and deep spiritual meaning.
Altho some may go to sleep while
reading these names in the Bible Mr.
Smith guarantees that no one will go
to sleep in listening to the unfolding
of tha beautiful meaning of this gen
The morning services begin at 11:
00 o'clock and the evening meeting at
7:30. To the public a cordial invi
tation is extended to attend the ser
vices of this church.

DR. WALLiS WRITES:
If some good angel, fairy or by
whatever name you would designate
the medicine by .which good offices
were tendered, should offer you rich
es beyond your power to estimate, it
is probable if this offer were general
including all Forts and conditions of
men and tho?e who are dear to them
that everyone would rush to obtain
a share of wh?.t was bemg proffered
practically without money and with
out price. This is vhat.is-Bow beng
of the Old North State when well
established means of preventing the
onset of a number of diseases are
waged upon the above named fortu
nate individuals and therr children
the latter being the outsanding asset
of any state. Diptherla, typhoid
fever, smallpox and whooping cough
come to my mind as "being among
the deadly ills alldued to. In toxin
anti-toxin we "have a means tried and
tested for immunizing against dip
theria. It is now proven beyond
doubt that its "use produces results
as named. It cannot "be stated too '
frequently that in smallpox vacci
nation we have a preventive also
tried aTid true against that loath
rome malady, smallpox. The same
con be said without fear of con
tradiction as to vaccination against
tvphoid. I mention these for it is i,
well-known that their ravages haye
in the past decimated areas of ou?
county. There things "being so and
our state and county Tiealth authori
ties eveT ready to cooperate in every I
way in their power to "lessen human
ills and when possible to eradicate
them,' it is surprising that people
everywhere do not avail themselves
of these wonderful opportunities. P
seems to tbe writer a bounded duty
to themselves and to others to do so.
Failing in this they do not grasp the
fact that health of mind and body is
great riches. The cost of illness is1
evidenced by the enormous sums
spent for various and sundry reme

THE PRAYER CORNER.
"Teach me to do Thy will." A little
j before the writer prayed, "Cause me
to know the way wherein I should
vrk " But kndwing the way is not
j enough, we must also walk in it.
Mary Lyon said, "she feared noth
ing so much as that she should not
know all he duty, and that she
should not do it."
St. Paul said, "The good which I
would, I do not." v
When we ask God in the morning
o show us the way, we must ask Him
lso to teach us to go in the right
"Teach me to do Thy will lead
me into the land of uprightness."
A great many people know their
duty better than they do it. It should
be our aim in all things to conform
ito God's Trill. But we need God's
help to do this. Our hearts are in-
naturally love eto walk in "the land
f uprightness." We need both to be
aught and led.
"Teach me lead me." We all
ieed to pray these two prayers to

iot come in sweet, easy ways, with
ircath of fragrance and in summer
