Their Going Causes Much Re>
gret ? Expression Made
Brevard is expressing regrets this j
week because of the removal of Mr. [
and Mrs. Henry Ranson and their
chidren from Brevard to Hender
sonville. Mr. Ranson, engineer on
the Southern Railway company's
lines between Hendersonville and
Lake Toaxway, had to move his .
family to Hendersonville because of J
the fact that the terminal, or lay- .
over, had been changed from Bre
vard to that place. Several families'
of Brevard's most popular citizens
were forced to leave their homes 1
here because of this change. The
town has suffered great loss in the '
removal of these familes, and there
is a decided sentiment in the town
against the actions of Superintend
ent Cooper because of these changes.
Mr. and Mrs. Ranson, last of the
railroad colony to leave, have been
aetive in church work here for many
years, and last Sunday witnessed
touching scenes at the Methodist
church when the announcement was
made th.it that was the last service
to be attended by the popular cou
ple, except at such times as they may
come up here as visitors. The Men's
Bible Class adopted a resolution
calling for preparation and publica
tion of an article expressing the re
gret of th" class because of the re
moral of Mr. Ranson.

Bigness of the Work Be
ing Done Here
Young Tar Heel Farmers of the
Brevard High School, together with
the class in home economics, staged
as fine a small fair here last Satur
day as any one could want to see.
Livestock, poultry, farm and garden
products were exhibited in a manner
that speaks volumes for the future
of Transylvania county, while the
exhibits of the home economics class
gave evidence that much study has
been devoted to that course by the
ladies in the Brevard High. The fail
was held in Blue Moon Tea Room,
while the livestock was in especially
built pens and stalls in the alleywaj
in the rear of the building.
One of the features of the fair
was a dirt map of Transylvania
county, made of the actual soils
from the various sections, showing
by United States government experi
ments the adaptations of the various
soils, their fertility and suggested
crops for each section. This dirt
map, being a miniature Transylvania
county, was made by the 9th grade
boys, without any assistance or sug
gestions from the teacher or any
one else. Merrimon Shuford, Arthur
Orr, Ralph Case, Bruce Reed, James
Mills and Jack Wilson made the map
and worked out its various interest
All day long Saturday, men, wo
men and children packed the place
about the fair, both inside the build
ing and through the lots wherein
were placed the livestock. Many hun
dreds of people witnessed the show- j 1
ing of the younr men and women of j -
the Brevaru High school vocational 1

Late in the afternoon a cornstalk
parade was held, and 66 boys

Harley Merrill's Prize-Winning Tobacco Crop

rill in his prize-winnnig tobacco
crop, grown in the Little River sec
tion. With Mr. Merrill is a son, and
to the left is Prof. Julian A. Glaz

This tobacco, as was most of the fine
crop grown in the county this year,
was grown with the aid of the regu
lar V.-C., tobacco fertilizer. This is
the last of a series of pictures
showing the great tobacco that can
be grown here. The Brevard News
has financed the making of these
cuts in order that the people of the
county could see the pictures of the
tobacco crops, which is a much more |
emphatic way of convincing the
people that tobacco can be grown
here than we could ever hope to do
in writing about the crop. It is be
lievcd that a large crop of tobacco
will be grown here next year, now
chat th" fact has been established
that Transylvania county is a
