Mr. (;. K. Lathrop, the aldermen who
favored him as clerk and treasurer
i f the town of Brevard were decid

your subscribers v.dio have not yet
viited Ih capitol of our Stat.
In the first place, let me say that
Ilnleiirh is famous for its '.-.ospitality
and Ih "jrlad hand shake."
Usua ly the li' si place a visitor
wants to see is the Capitol building,
i he jrroiinds are beautiful. The sta
!:c of (leorjre Washington stands
uuard at one entrance, that of Zebu
Ion Vance another. Throughout the
grounds are several other statues of
our heroes, some the first to die in
our several wars.
The building is a four square
colonial structure. The interior
shows signs of age. In one of the
Legislative Halls Washington's and
Vance's pictures, or paintings, hang
on the wall facing each other. From
the capitol dome one can see for
miles and miles, and not a mountain
in sight.
"The Soldiers' Home" is about
one mile from the capitol square.
If I ever visited a place where peo
ple were glad to see me, this was the

but this was a sad place to visit, as
so many were confined to their beds:

this year.
Most of them were cheerful ami
talkative. Numbers asked me where
I lived. When I said "Brevard,"
two asked me if I knew preaehe

I was more than glad to meet two
of Transylvania's brave sons:
Messrs. Reeve and Kimsy. They
were both happy and pleased with
.heir home. Tu all their kindred and
friends they sent their kindest greet
ings. The different churches visit them
Sundays. This is a day they look
forward to with untold pleasure.
I spent one morning visiting the
Blind Institute. The children are an
inspiration to those of us more for

touch system. It is wonderful to
hear how rapidly they can read. They

Plain Facts
Fair Minds
- The literal truth is, that the Hupmobile is a fine car at
a low price. You can establish that truth easily, and to
your own satisfaction.
The facts are available to anyone. Any independ
ent garage mechanic will tell you how soundly and wis
ely the Hupmobile is engineered; how finely it is built.
Any Hupmobile owner will tell you how amazingly
little it costs for upkeep, and for operation; and how
thoroughly reliable and consistent it is in service throu
ghout the years.
Its comparative absence from the used - car columns
will give you some idea of its high value when you re
sell it; and its price will convince you that it is one of the
worlds greatest motor car values when you buy it.
