The Brevard Club will hold a “base I

is to have this attraction this season.
We are confident that everyone here
wants'a baseball club, but if we are
to have a pennant winning team, it
will take quite a bit of “jack” to run
it. Therefore it is really a question
of whether we are willing to put out

Brevard motorists can now enjoy
the convenience of a battery station
here at home. Recently Mr. Walter

tion at Jess Smith’s Garage on Main
St. Mr. Hart says that he is equip
ped to do any type of work on stor
age batteries and he emphasizes the
importance of car owners bringing
their batteries to him for free testing,
refilling with distilled water, etc. He
claims to be able to do as good bat-
te^ repair work as any station of
th’s kind in the South and we are in-
cliiiilLto accept his claim after hav-
his up-to-date equipment.

on Saturday afternoon. The subject
discusscd was, “Summer-bloomin'T

C. Ransom spoke on “Grasses,” Mrs.
Oliver Orr on “The Mints.” and Mis§
Martha Boswell gave a carefully pre
pared list of the summer bloomerjs
according to families and .spoke parti,
pularly on the orchids. She regretted]
tho fact that some of our wild flowers
were disanpearing around Brevard,
owing to the destruction of the plant
through the indiscriminate plucking,
and begged all the flower lovers to do
their best to protect them. The Club
voted to request the County Commis-

and Farm Demonstrators.

you you will not hear so many howl
hard times. So let’s get busy and
encourage the farmers by giving
I them a big day; let it be a reunion-

cent of the population of the county
llive in the rural districts and about
150 per cent of the taxes.are paid by
(the farmers, so more an3 better farm
ling, better rural conditions, social
ly and economically would mean a
I great deal to the county as a whole.
IA good fair would help to develop
Ithese things. The" greatest benefit
jof a fair to the farmers is education-
lal. Farm products from all over the
jcounty are placed on exhibition and
[judged by men of experience. A
I farmer sees and learns why a beef
cow should be pure bred, blocky and
compact in type. On the other hand
he learns why a dairy cow should
have a “w^edge” shape and large
milk veins and many things that show
quality. He 1.5 told why an ear of
corn with straight, even rows, well
filled at each end, is more profitable
I than com selected at random from
Ithe crib at planting time, he leams
Iwhy potatoes of medium size, uni-
Iform and free from disease, are more
Iprofitable than potatoes carelessly
jcrown; he leams the difference in
Ifruit that ha.r; grown on well pruned
land sprayed trees. The farmer not
|only learns why these things are to
%arn but how to produce products
that are profitable. The man who
lakes money farming must think
ibout his business and have some
)lan ; he ought to know the kind of
jroducr.^ that his market will pay the
jest price for before he plants,
tmagine a merchant that does not
ftudy markets, keeps no books and
ike<5 no inventories.
Then ea^h farmer’s products are
kompared with those of his neighbor,
if a man fails to win first prize,
ke learns why and goes back home
ith a picture in his mind of a Jer-
ley cow, a Duroc hog or an ear of
lom that will win over everythincr
[n the county. Next year when he
roes to work to produce these thingp
ke will begin to investigate, read
fnd study, use his mind in various
probaMv ^evir attempted be-
pre. It is hard to put your finger
kn all the benefits that result from
k’ork of this kind because there is

rendered by the Institute choir, at
the Vesper service Sunday night, in
the Institute auditorium. The theme
was. “The Life of Christ,” illustra
ted by anthems, songs and readings.
Beginning with the prophecies, fore
telling the birth and mission of Christ
the story showed how these prophe
cies were fulfilled, and led up to the
final scenes of the crucifixion and
ressurection. The ensemble work
was remarkably good and Miss Pike’s
rendering of “The Palms,” was very
effective. The program was planned
and rehearsed by Mr^. C. H. Trow
