SOLUTION FOR THE
Less Inspiration and More In'
formation Is Now Needed
In This County
FOR ALL CHARITY WORK
Women's Bureau Well Pleased
with Splendid Advice
One of the most constructive
meetings of the Woman's Bureau
said to have been held in some time
was that of Monday afternoon, the
main feature of which was a talk
by Superintendent S. P. Verner out
lining a suggested program of oper
ation for public welfare work in
Referring to the subject at hand,
Mr. -Verner emphatically declared
that wha.t was needed more than
anything e'jse in Transylvania coun
ty was, ''Leas inspiration and more
information and prespiration ? quit
talking so much and get down to
business. Adding further emphasis
to this assertion, Mr. Verner men
tioned five different methods by
which public welfare is promoted in
the community, pointed out the dis
advantages of this plan of operation
and suggested plausible solutions
for a more successful carrying on of
thi9 important work in the county.
Under the present method of op
eration in this county, as pointed
out by the speaker, there are now
five different channels through which
public welfare is promoted, includ
ing, a Board of Public Welfare, the |
Associated Charities, the Red Cross,
the churches, and by individuals.
Mr. Verner spoke of the difficulties
in the way of these methods proving
altogether workable, since all five of
the organizations may be working on
the same case at the same time, re
sulting in a lack of co-ordination

MAYOR - ELECT OF I
FLORIDA CITY HERE
Pearces Called to Bedside of
Sick Brother ? Dr. Pearce
Is Critically 111
Messrs J. D. Pearce and B. M.
Pearce, brothers, and W. L. Tilling
hast, a cousin, are in Brevard at
?he bedside of Dr. R. S. Pearce, who
)s critically ill. The distinguished
;vi3itors are from St. Petersburg,
Fla., where J. D. Pearce was, on
last Tuesday, elected mayor of the
Florida city. It will be recalled that
Dr. Pearce. so well and favorably
known in Brevard, was mayor of St.
Petersburg during two full terms,
and this is said tp be the first time
in the history of the Florida city
that two brothers have been elected
to the office of chief magistrate of
The Pearces are native North Car
olinians, having been born and rear
ed in Fayfctteville, this state, moving
to Florida 25 years ago. Dr. Pearce
and his interesting family have
been coming to Brevard every sum
mer for a number of years. Some
time ago they disposed of their
holdings in Florida and became
permanent citizens of Brevard. Dr.
Pearce has been quite ill for many
months, and his family and friends
have but little hope of his recovery.
It was the serious illness of Dr.
Pearce that called the brothers
away from St. Petersburg so soon
after the successful election in
which Hon. J. D. Pearce was chosen

Services Held Twice Daily and
Great Interest Is Being
Large crowds are attending the
revival services at the Brevard Bap
tist church, which started last Sun
day morning and will continue for
two weeks. Beginning Wednesday,
and continuing until further notice,
two services will be held daily, at
3 o'clock in the afternoon and at 8
o'clock in the evening. With Alvin
Moore at the piano, and Dr. Jordan
as song leader, and the senior and
junior choirs alternating in the
singing, the music is no little part
of the series of meetings.
The pastor, Rev. Paul Hartsell, is
doing the preaching. Powerful, elo
quent and appealing sermons are
being delivered at each service. The
pastor manifests by his deep earnest
ness that the revival is not being
help simply because it is the regular
time of holding such meetings, but
rather on account of a burning de
sire on the part of the church and
the town for a real revival in re
ligious spirit and work.
Many members of other churches
of the town and county are notice
able at each of the meetings, show
ing the general community interest
being taken in the revival. Several
pastors of other churches in the
county, and of churches of other
denominations, are in the congrega
tion at each meeting, and join in
the services in song and prayer.
It is being predicted that a great
revival will be experienced during
the two weeks. All people are given
cordial invitation to attend all the
meetings. It is believed that the
other churches in the town will not
hold evening services next Sunday,
so the members of these churches ji
can attend the evening service at '
the Baptist church.

Farmers Are Setting Out
Tobacco Plants Rapidly
Tobacco growers in Transylvania
:ounty and other Western North
Carolina counties have bright prom
ise of good prices for whatever to
bacco they grow, according to re
ports from Burley belts in other'
states. It is reported that the crop
is cut in half, or even smaller, in
sther sections because of drought
and the attending failure of the j
plants to grow. This means that |
whatever is grown will bring a '
nuch higher price.
Trouble has been experienced with '
;he plants in Transylvania county, j
according to reports from Julian
Glazener and others, there being a
tremendous shortage. It will be re
jailed that the Brevard Banking ;
company made proposition to pro- j
vide plants, free, to fifty farmers j
who would plant an acre each. The j
bank has made arrangements to pur- i
:hase plants in an adjoining county j
to make up whatever shortage may

that Miss Annie Jean Gash had pre

Announcement has been made that ]
the warehouse at Asheville wili be '
completed and a large buying force
on hand for the first of the crop that
is to be offered for sale this fall.
The establishment of a warehouse at
Asheville will mean much to the to
bacco growers of Western Carolina,
as the farmers will not have so far
to take their weed to market.
It is believed that tobacco grow
ing is just now coming into its own
in Transylvania county, and that
next year will witness a crop of tre
mendous size in this county.
