BREVARD, NORTH CAROLINA, JULY 17, 1929
"Dr. L" Lyday Die* Shortly!
After Suffering Stroke
^ PRACTISED HERE FOR
? 1 THIRTY - NINE YEARS
Was Friend of All Who Knew
Him ? Thousand People
A useful life, a loyal citizen anil
a beloved friend was removed f.-om
the community in the passing of Dr.
A. E. Lyday, whose death occurred
early Sunday morning at his home
near Brevard, following a stroke of
paralysis which he suffered on the
previous Friday night. Funeral . r
vices were held Monday morning at
11 o'clock at the Little River Bao
f:-"t church, conducted by the Rev.
J. R. Owen, of Mars Hill, assisted ;?>
the Rev. Mr. Hileman, pastor of Riv
erside church, Asheville, Rev. Carl
Blythe and Rev. W. S. Price, Jr.,
pastors of churches in this county.
Interment was in the Little River
cemetery adjoining the church.
Dr. Lyday, who was 64 years of
age, was a native of Transylvania i
county, and had practiced medicine |
in this county for the past 39 years. I
He was the son of the late Dr. An- ?
drew J. Lyday, who was a greatly be- I
loved physician in this county for 41 j
years, and for many years was the 1
only physician living here, and died i
while attending one of his patients. |
"Dr. L," as he was familiarly and |
lovingly known among his host of j
friends and numerous patients, had !
been an active and loyal member of J
the Enon Baptist church for the pastj
40 years, at all times ready and,
glad to assist in any way possible
toward the welfare of his church and
community. He numbered his friends !
by his acquaintances, as was attested :
by the large crowd attending the fu-j
neral, it being estimated that no less
than a thousand people were in at- !
tendance, overflowing the church I
crowding around the grounds outside !
the building. It is said that at least '
thirty minutes were consumed in re
viewing the last remains of the body
in the cnur-h. many stopping to pat
the cheek of their departed friend in(
ing farewell as they passed by the
in tile death of Dr. Lyday, a treat- ;
ly beloved friend, a highly respected ;
?i . i us. ful citizen, a Christian gen
tleman. and a trusted and capable;
physician was taken from the life of j
the community to pass on to his eter- j
rial reward. He had been in failing |
health for the past year or more, at- ?
tending t> the duties of his profes- 1
sion many times when physically un- J
able to do so,, willing to sacrifice his
life for his work and his friends. |
In addition to a host of friends'
throughout this and adjoining co.un-i
ties, iii> are surviving live broth

An ;;do| ted son, Clyde Blythe, also j
survives. and between the deceased i
and young Mr. Blythe existed a most,
? antii'i:! 1 ve, it is said by neighbors. ;
The plr ieian adopted Mr. Blythe
? hen ? latter was an infant, and
had reared him as a loving father!
would care for his own child.
I>r. Lyday has left his imprint
upon his community in such marked
manner that it can never be erased.
The people in every walk of life '
loved Dr. "L," and called him or went;
to him with their troubles ? all their,
troubles. n(5t merely their physical
ills ? and he heard them, and sympa
thized with them and advised them.

BALLYHO EVENT IS !
Event Staged To Welcome
That, Ballyho Tournament staged
Wednesday on the BrevarJ golf
course proved to be- one of the mo t
enjoyable affairs ever witnessed here.
The unusual plan of the tournament
i* suggested by its name ? ballyho.
Instead of observing the usual quiet'
wnen a piayer is drivihg, the plan of
this tournament was for all other
to make all the noise they eould, and
! the Brevard golfers most assuredly
| can make noise.
Flights of nine players were start
ed off, the player making the high
score on N'n. 1, to drop out, aru;
sr> on, the last man to fall being
declared the winner of the flight a.^
he completed the ninth hole alone.
The tournament was staged for
the purpose of giving a greeting ahd
a welcome to .Mr. J. C. Eldridge, a
professional golfer, who was attract
ed to this section because of the un
usually fine course here.
Mr. Eldridge will be in Brevard
for a short time, and it is said will
I give instruction to any golfer de
| siring such. He is at the Franklin
hotel, and it is believed many peo
ple will take advantage of his pres
ence and learn something about the

WANT FARMERS TO
1 VISIT THE CAPITAL
(By J. F. CORBIX)
The State Agricultural College at
; Raleigh will hold its 27th annual
| Farmers Week this year from July
I 22 to 27th. These conventions are
i held yearly for the purpoes of ac
, quainting the dirt farmer with what
i the college is trying to do, the colicky
men, the experiments that are being
! run, and in general to show then;
| their own college that is run for
. them and paid for by them.
j The writer is attemptihg to got a
i truck load of farm men from Tian
. sylvania to go down there for ju; :
! one or two day It is 300 miles down
| there and would require one hard
day's drive. The college will fuiiis :
rooms and body, and meals will haw
to be paid for at about 50 cents
] each. If a dozen men could be secur
ed to go in a truck the expenses
would be about $15 each. There are
many farm projects goihg on be
tween here and the college of inter
est that we could stop by and see. I
I am sure the trip will mean much to
, the county and more to those who
j go. I will be glad to accompany the

CAMPS BRING MANY
PEOPLE TO COUNTY
Laree Number of Parents Fol?
low Campers to This
Brevard's summer population and
activities in general have greatly in
creased during the past two weeks
since the opening of the 14 organ
ized summer camps for boy- ani
girls located in various section- of
the county. mm
Jki.iv o:' the parents of the boys
and girls accompanied the t'.npers
to Brevard and are spendir.: the
season in the various b irding
houses, hotels or cottages throughout
the town while their children .re in
attendance at the different ? mnjjs
during the eight weeks' sessicr. This
influx of visitors occasioned ? the
opening of the camps, togeth with
the regular tourists coming ;j Bre
vard from various sections ? the
country, thereby increases th- num
ber of people in the commun t:; a
great extent. Evidence of i-i.s is
shown by the enlivened activity aiohg
the streets and in the various places
of business and amusement centers.
While a few of the camps report
a slightly decreased enrollment, the
majority are operating at capacity
limit, and all of the camp directors
express the opinion that pre. ?ni in
dications give promise of the h most
successful season in every respect.
The personnel of the counsel :aatr at
the various camps and the fit
in evidence among the camper- is
said to be of an uhusually h or
der for the present session.

Eastern Star has been organic
during the past year, and ;i
of this chapter assisted in !ir.
