the gates into the State Fair on
Thursday carrying the attendance
far above the record established on
any day since the institution was
established sixty-two years ago. The
mass of surging humanity rendered
impossible anything but a difficult
.-.'vproach to the exhibits. Midway
r.nd the new grand stand erected j
li;.-t year were packed with visitors,
to the splendid exhibition eager to
v'.'lness the numerous amusement
features, or to get a glimpse of the
great variety of exhibits brought
Ironi the factories and the farms of
Nort'i Carolina. At (the close of
the I ig exhibition on Friday atten
dance figures registered around
100,000 and more gate receipts
have been counted than ever before.
The big success of the exposi
tion -this year lifts the institution
out of debt and "out of the ruts"
into which it had been sliding for
loir.c years prior to the first ad
ministration of Mr?. Vanderbilt. The
crowds were larger during the en
tire week this year than usual and
"the attractions more " numerous.
Even General Pershing, the big
drawing card last yer, did not
draw anything like the number of
people who came to the iair last
Thursday. Every one appeared to
be having "a grand time" and prais
es tor the splendid work of Mrs.
Vandcvbiit was heard in every
cuarter. She was generally on the
grounds ahead of the crowds and
put herself into the direction of
affairs with v. determination which
has characterized her administra
tion from the outset.
The way has been opened for
even grca'(:r hchievements in the
future and, with financial handi
c"5 behind them State Fair officials
cfidently expects bigger and bet
ter things with each passing year.
The record of accomplishment at
tained in 1923 has brought hope for
the future and "Forward Ever for
ward" is the slogan of the man
agement. Judge John H. Kerr, recently
nominated as the successor of the
late Claude Kitchen in Congress, is
to be succeeded by Thomas M. Titt
man, of Henderson, the Governor
having announced that he will ap
point Mr. Tittman as soon as the
vacancy contemplated in th Third
Judicial District actually occurs. A
spirited contest for the judgeship
was in progress, but the Governor
decided to "take time by the fore
Jock" and the fight is over before
it got started. Mr. Pittman is ad
nttedly a mar; of 'parts; stands
well in his profession; in literary
circles and as a church man. He
has 'been a leading' figure in the
Eaptist denomination in the State
for many years and has served in
numerous important positions in the
or;.; mirations of the democratic
party and the legal profession. He
was recently married to Miss Lizzie
Iriggs of this city, a leading Bapr
tist worker of the State, his first
wife having died several years ago.
This appointment of the Governor
is considered a wise one and popular

Hunt to Mr. William Goldsmith,
Greenville, S. C.
Breyard, N. C, Oct. 15, 1923
Mr. William Goldsmith,
Greenville, S. C.
Please allow me to make a few
remarks upon the subject.
MUTUAL COOPERATION OF
GREENVILLE AND EREV VRD
FOR MUTUAL BENEFIT.
Greenville with the completion of
the Geer Highway become the
Southern Gateway to the Mountains.
At her door stands Caesar's Head,
one of the grandest views in the
Clue Ridge Mountains. Caesar'?
Head should now be advertised tii!
it becomes a household word. North.
South, East and West. Ore of
Greenvill's greatest drawing cards.
We srfould make Greenville the
point of concentration for nil auto
mobile travel from the South reek
ing the mountains. The Great Gecr
Highway wJill take .'the tourist 'a
Caesar's Head, Connestee Fail-;, and
to Brevard the central point for
ell of the grandest and most sub
lime scenery in Western North Caro
lina thence to the terminus of the
Geer Highway, the soldiers monu
ment, marking the entrance of the
great Pisgah National Forest and
Game preserve, with all of iti recnic
ct" actions ' and numerous trout
The nearest and best way from
the South to the North is Green
ville, Brevard by way of Cacr.arV
Head, ' Asheville, Knoxviile, etc.
We should adv
the Northern tourists leaving Flori
da and other Southern points in the
Spring after Florida has become too
warm and while vhe Northern frosts
still linger in the' air to come
by Greenville, S. C. the Queen City
of South Carolina, the Textile Cen
ter of the South, thence to Caesar's j
Head, BTevard and to the Pisgah
National Forest, and there enjey
"a back to Nature rest" upon the
mountain peaks and fishing in the
numerous trout streams, or else in
this land of the giant oak and tow
ering poplar, the beautiful Laurel
and Rhododendron enjoy day
dreams, lying upon the leaf strewn
ground, beneath the oderifeous
Spruce and Balsam, watching with
dreamy, half closed eyes the drift
ing clouds as they play hide and
seek amongst the towering peaks,
till at last lulled to sleep by the
zyphers of the mountains and the
music of many rippling waters.
An entrancing drive of two hours
will take the traveler from the hos
pitable gates of Greenville -fey way
of CaesaVs - Head to' the entrance
of the NatipnalForest the terminar
of the Goer Highway.
The Northern tourists seeking the
South for the winter should travel
this same route and for a few
weeks, till the heat of the Southern
sun is abated in Florida, enjoy the
unsurpassed mountain scenery, and
the Autumnal glories of the Fisgah
Forest. The main entrance, that
used- by the late Mr. Geo. W. Van
derbilt, is near Brevard, N. C., and
marked by the monument erected to
the memory of the World War Sol
diers. Greenville and Brevard and all
stop over towns on the way to our
Southern Winter resorts, should join
in one great and continuous adver
tising scheme and advertise this di
rect route, by newspapers, road
road signs, photographs, post cards
and bill boards, etc'.
We should get ready now and
have this route well advertised by
the coming Spring."
Greenville should not. neglect the
tiade of Transylvania County and
Brevard."1 Those of Brevard who
wish to shop elsewhere, for special
goods, ' should be taught to trade in

of this association held its annual
meeting on Thursday during the ses
sion of the association, in the school
house close by. The work of the
women is making splendid progress.
TITcy expect to have their annual
meeting separate and apart ne::t
year. It will come sometime about
the first of Oct. just two weeks
prior to the general association. Mrs.
Wallace Hartsell was elected as
Supt. of the work in thir, associa
tion. The women need the moral
support of the men of our churches.
We must support them if we expect
them to do the best work.
The next sessidn will meet in Oct.
1924, with the church t Little Riv
er. Several of the churches wanted
the next meeting but since it could
meet in but one place at a time the
committee thought it best to send
it to Little River.
The people of the community of
Cedar Mtn. took care of the associa
tion in a royal manner as they do
all meetings that are held in that
part- of the country. There was
plenty to eat and the homes were
opened to the visitors. Brother A.
B. -Jones, of Pisgah Forest, is the
pastor of this noble people and he
and they together did the magnan
imous thing. May their tribe in
crease. "T Mrs.-. W. M.. Miller visited rel
