BREVARD, N. C. FRIDAY, JANUARY 19,
Believes Building Program Necessary
If Brevard Is To Progress Like
Position of "News".
Mr. Cos Faxton, our progressive
fellow townsman, in an interview
with the Editor declared that he was
going to tear down his old ramshackle
box next to the post - office and build
an up-to-date office and store build
ing at once.
"Cos" declared that the "News"
was right in its position about the
fire traps, etc., and wants to see the
town grow and believes it is up to
the people and financiers to "tear
all th0 fire traps down NOW". He
further stated that the town was a
little dull, that mechanics, carpenters,
brick masons, laborers, etc., were
leaving Brevard on account of no
work. And believe that a good pro
gram 'would help liven things up and
put prosperity in "The Land of Water
falls". He is an ardent progressive
booster for his community and has
many thousands of dollars invested in
th etown and states that, in his opin
ion, the present renters of these di
lapidated buildings will be satisfied to
stay in them unless the citizens de
mand their removal and a progress
ive building program. "The Brevard
News" agres with Mr. Paxton and
we congratulate him upon his strong
nervy and patriotic manner of expres
sing his opinion.

COTTON MILL HAS
Now Capitalized At Two Hundred
Hundred Thousand Dollars
To Double Its Capacity.
MR. GRAY RENTS PATTON HOME
The Brevard Cotton Mills which
were recently purchased by Mr. Gray
who has had many years of experience
and is known throughout the South as
an expert cotton mill financier and
director, has decided to increase its
capital stock from One Hundred tTTous
and dollars to Two Hundred thousand ,
and increase its capacity and output
to at least double its present strength.
A meeting held in the Brevard
Club Room by the business men of j
Transylvania resulted in about five j
thousand dollars worth of shares be- '
ing subscribed. The object of the io- '
eai business men was to show a spirit
of good will and fellowship and to
let the new owner know that the citi
zens of this community are going to
co-opeiate in every way to make his
, buisiness venture a success.
With the increase in the ou-put
j etc., there will be at least double the
! amount of hands employed which will
mean more houses necessary, etc.
! Mr. Gray has rented the J. J. Pat
ton Home near the Brevard Institute
and will move in with his family at
once. Mr. J. J. Fatton has moved
back to Davidson's River.
The citizens of "The Land of Water
falls" welcome the new Citizens with
open arms, and are stretching out tin
glad hand to them.

The text for this Mormon is Exod

made til,, children of Israel to serve
"with rigour; and they ma.de their
lives bitter with hard bondage, in
morter, and in brick, and in all man
ner of service n the field; all their
service, wherein they were made t
serve, was with rigour."
I. SIN IS BONDAGE.
Every man's experience testifies to
the truth of th,. word of Jesus: "He
that committeth sin is the
sin." Dr. John R. Mott wa

II. SIN IS A HARD TASKMASTER.
"The way of the trangressor is
hard." In Louisville, Ky., while a
student there. I came across a family
who were in distressing circumstan
ces. Thev had moved there some
ironths before from an Indiana town.
The husband drank an j gambled, and
the "oi'.m persuaded him to go to
Louisville hoping that he would find
a different jort of companions. There
he got a job, and reginrly brought
home his full pay on Saturdays. One

kind of companions, and was drink-
ing and gambling aga'n. Soon he was
in ebt, and borrowed fifty dollars
from a money shark v.h0 made him
give a mortgage! on all of his house
hold goods, and sign a note to pay
$1.50 a week for fifty-two weeks!
Soor the man ran away from home,
leaving his wife and two children at
thf mercy of the loan shark. Some
of us got the money and paid the
mortgage. But the home was broken
up, and the last I knew of tho woman
she was pasting labels on bottles in
a wholesale whiskey establishment.

A THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
"I have chosen you and ordained
'you that ye should go and bring forth
fruit, and that your fruit should re
main" John 15:1(5.
"It is a wonderful thought that God
has thought upon me. He has a plan
for my life. I am not like some drift

"" He numbers the hairs of our
head. Of all the sparrows, not one
of them is forgotten in the sight of
God. John is expressing his thought
of God, as well a his interpretation of
Christ when lie says, "He calleth His
own sheep by name". God is like a
shepherd who misses even one !-'.
from His flock; a housewife who seeks
for a single coin ; a father who grieves
for one boy gone wrong. Of ail the
children in the world, says Jesus, "It
is r.ot the will of your Father that one
of these little ones should perish".

Those interested in th,. Near East
ern Relief Fund are earnestly hoping
that the quota for this county may be
completed, and SOON, while the need
is so urgent. I understand we are
still about $200.00 short of the a
mount asked for and a plan has oc
curred to me by which this sum might
be raised, in a month's time without
hardships, almost with no inconven
ience to any one. I offer this sug-
ially the mothers of the county, for I
am sure that any woman who has pil
lowed a baby's head upon her arm
must feel her heart throb with horror

in the city, in perils in the wilderness,
in perils in the . e . In
weariness and painfulness, in watch

fastings often, in cold and nakedness."
Will not the housekeepers in 100
(or more) of our comfortable Transyl
