‘BREVARD THE BEAUTIFUL’
A GENERAL WORK DAY—MAY 30

By Jan Peyton
A little over a hundred years ago
Brevard was a little settlement in
dense forest land, ranged over by
the wandering and warlike tribes of i
Cherokees and Catawba’s. The Chero |
kees were Southern Indians and tra
ditional accounts say the originally
had their hunting grounds in the re-

adversaries from the North, and set

through the Sapphire Country, hunt

the streams. They were less savage
than most of their race, but they re
garded white settlers as invaders, and
there were many bloody conflicts un
til they were forcibly moved to new
zation. Why cannot the women al
ways get out to Sunday School?
The Woman’s Missionary Society
did not have a program last Thursday
because of the absence of both ’.he
president and the vice-presidcnt., A
program will be given at their next
