More Visitors in **The Land of Water
falls" Than Ever^Befor^e—Camps
Have Full Quota
The tourists are here in greater
numbers than ever before, in spite
of the heavy rains which are now
over. You know they are here from
looking at the crowds of guests on
the thorpfares, you realize they ate
here when inquiring at the hotels
and boarding houses. The number
here this year could not have been
entertained a few years ago. But
Brevard is steadily growing and
thanks to the new Southern Railroad
schedule, which gives four trains run
ning into Brevard, together with the
low prices for all rents and board
ing houses and the good old fashion
ed country eating, to say nothing
about the attraction of our wonder
ful climate and scenic grandues we
see more visitors coming in every day.
However, we are not crowded and
have made preparation for the vast
number still to come. Brevard’s
greatest popularity is largely due to
the fact that we have never made any
agreement among ourselves for a
,?reat, exhorbitant price—a price for
thp tourist and a price for ourselves
—Brevard realizes that these good
people are our guests and as invited

For some weeks Rev. Chas. C.
Smith has been trying to make a date
with Hon. W. D. Upshaw, congress
man from the district in Georgia in
which Atlanta is located', nis home
being in that city, to visit Brevard
and speak in his church on a Sunday
and deliver one of his lectures on
the following evening. On Monday
of this week Mr. Smith had ^ tele
gram from him saying that he will
be here on Sunday, July 30.
So it seems settled that Brevard
will have the pleasure of hearing this
distinguished Georgian, whose career
has been so marvelous. When quite
a child Mr. Upshaw has some kind
of accident that made him helpless
during the years that a boy usually
has his greatest activities, but, in
stead of making him morose and dis
couraged, it rather stirred up in him
a great ambition to be and to do
something worth while. So those
years that he was forced to stay in
his room on his bed were spent in
earnest reading, hard study, and ear
nest Christian devotions. So assidu
ous were his labors that he became
known as “Earnest Willie,” under
which title he was famed all over the
One of his characteristics is his
pure Christianity, havinsr from early
youth been a devout follower of the
Saviour. He is a lecturer of surpass
ing charm aijd .power, and for years
was with the Anti-Saloon League as
one of their foremost lecturers, and
that organization gets him now for
special campaigns whenever he can
Be secured. W^ile having never been
ordained, he is an earnst pracher of
righteousness, and almost every Sun
day he fills one of the large pulpits
of the land.
Some years ago he entered poli
tics and now for two trms he has r.?-.
presented thp important fifth Georgia
district in tlie lower house of Con
gress at Washington. In the capitol
city he is known as a man who stands
firm for fhe highest things, and a*;
one who may ever be found on the
rijrht side 'o'i every moral question.
His schedule while in Brevard
be as foThjws: He will arr vo at 5:3r»

RALEIGH, N. C., July 17.—Little
out of the ordinary is transpiring in
administration circles during these
warm days and but for the strike
of railroad shopmen there is not
enough news in circulation to excite
discussion. True, the Ku Klux Klan
of this and surrounding communi
ties turned out several hundred
strong Friday evening and paraded
the streets for the entertainment of
the populace and a boost for their
organization, but this event lasted
only a couple of hours and without
apparent results other than the at
traction of a tremendous outpouring
of Raleigh people to witness the per
formance and hear Col. W. E. Thomp
son of Atlanta decant upon the prin
ciples which, he declared, are actuat
ing the movement.
The Klan in Raleigh is said to be
stronger numerically than any other
secret order, including in its mem-
be^-ship many of tlft most prominent
citizens of the city. The marchers
on Friday evening, three hundred
strong and wearing the regalia of the
order, literally took the town, but
handled it so quetly that even the
“blue coats” scarcely realized that
they were in the hands of “men of
mystery.” The streets were throng
ed with men, women, and children
who enjoyed the diversion immense
ly. The marchers carried banners
u'Dcn which were inscribed: “For
rourti'y r.nd for You,” “American
rrincin’e^ *Shall Not Die,” “As a
Friend, Not a Foe,” “Klean Klans
