county. He also explained that the
teachers of the county who hold
oert.ificotes below the Elementary
B. ,c'?ss cannot enter State summer

MEETING OF MATHATASIAN I
On last Thursday afternoon the

of Miss Florence Kern.
The topic for discussion was "The

was the leader.
Mrs. Fisher was called out of
?own she ?ent her carefully prepar
ed, thoughtful paper to be read by
Mrs. Beulah Zachary, chairman of
the program committee.
Mrs. Fisher stated, "Beuiy is not

by Mrs. O. H. Orr and Mrs. E. H
Mrs. Orr suggested that every
mother teach her children not to
throw trash in public buildings nor
on the streets or sidewalks.

He gave evidence to prove thkt it
was not the nails and the eronb
which killed Jesus, but the burden,
of sins of the world which actually
broke his heart.
Two special features of this ser

of the several churchs and a duet
by Miss Hosford and Mr. Hartsell.
On Tuesday night the faculty and
students of Brevard Institute and
the High School were special guests.

GOOD ROADS MEETING
The County Commissioners and |
the Road Commissioners attended j
the Good Roads meeting in Asheville [
This meeting was called by Col
onel Pratt, president of Western
North Carolina Inc.
The principle feature of the me
eting was the address by Frank Page '
chairman of the State Highway
Commission. Mr. Page stated thati
the ninth highway district gets a
larger appropriation in population j
than many other districts. North j
Carolina people get more for their
road money, he said, than any other
spate's population, and this opinion
is held by many tourists andi resi
dents of other sections.
Theta are two things which will
spoil ^roads, water and politics.
Very little can be done about the
first, he said.
A survey of the needs of Western
North Carolina in road construction j
was given by Col. Pratt who stres
sed the advantages to be derived
from co-operation, county with state '
authority and the citizens with both

between each county and its neigh

wishing to bear alone the responsi- j

asked the assistance of the Chamber
of Commerce. This is of ourso
an important matter. Everyone
will be glad to have the streets na
med, but not every one will agree (
that the names selcted are good ones ?
Parking space is becoming a pro

THE PRAYER CORNER
"Our Bisen Lord's Appointments"
"Lo I am with you always."
Jesus makes appointments with
us to meet us at times of prayer in
church services, at the holy comnua
ion, at some holy^ tryating place.
Some times we do not think these
appointments very important and
are easily influenced to omit them.
We never can know what we lose by
these failures or neglects.
Jesus Always comes where b*
asks us to - meet him and gives bless
ings there to those who have been
faithful in gathering to wait for him
We do not know what we may misA
by staying away from any appoint
ment with our Master.
The Risen Lord's promise to hi*
disiciplea when he sent them forth
is one of great comfort, "Lo I ui
with you alwayB even unto, jthe end
of the world." If Jesus had given,
his commission without adding hia
promise, his disciples might well
have shrunk from going forth to
the work to which he assigned them
but having his promise they could
This assurance was not for the
first disciples only, he says to us al
so, "I am with you always." In
what sense is Christ with us always?
It is not merely as our departed fr
iends are with us in the sweet mem
ories of their lives. It is a real and
personal presence. He is present
with us as he was with Mary and
Martha when he came to them that,
day after their brother had died^
He is present with each one of usr
not only on the bright days but on
the dark days. Let us believe in
the Actual .Presence of Christ with,
us and then let us act as if we belie
ved that he is with us. This is the
Secret of Christain Power and Chria.
O thou risen Christ, our blessed
Lord and Muter, we think thee foe
thy precious promise, "La I am with
you alwayB" May we never neglect
or omit .thy appointment whether
it be at times of prayer, at chut-clfc
service, at the holy communion or
at some holy trysting place. We can
never know what we lose by our
failure or neglect. We believe that
th oudost always come to the meet
ing place and givest blessings to:
those who have been faithful in ga
thering to wait for thee. May
never stay away from any appoint
ment with thee our Master.
We know and believe that thoa.
art with us always, not merely as
our departed human friends are with>
us, in the sweet memories of their*
lives, but as a real and personal pr
esence. Thou art present with ua.
as thou wert with Mary and Martha^
when thou earnest to them that day
after their brother had died. Thon
art present with us not only on the
bright days but on the dark ones.
Oh help us, thou mercififul and'
gracious One to believe in thy actual
presence with us and then let us act
as if we believed it for it is the pre
cious secret of Christain power and
Christain peace." Amen.
