On this day, Ashe-Wednesday,

Rector, will hold, two services. At

be administered, and t 7:80 P. M.

The following Lenten message from
Mr. New will be helpful to all the
people of Waynesville, er-respective
of church affiliation: . -,
I am convinced that -you are not
satisfied with the state of your spirit,
al development. You know you are
not the man or woman you would
like to be, and feel you ought to be.
And because you are dissatisfied you
lack the real joy of living. The busks
of life will never satisfy the hunger
of your immortal soul. Lent offers
you something that will. It gives you
the opportunity to grasp the real
values of life.
A proper observances of Lent is
just what you need in this age of the
overemphasis of the material side of
life. You need time for thought and
re-adjustment and sane judgment as
to the real values of life. You are so
busy with your social "activities" and
your business and your Church work
that you are in real danger of be
coming superficial and shallow on
the spiritual side of your nature. Hu-
inanity to surfeited with its marvel
loua physical accomplishments, yet it
remains true that man is a spiritual
being and for him spritual values
are the final values.
During the Lenten season I ask you'
to fix your mind on the spiritual side
of life and draw away from the tu
mult and clamor of the material.
Christ is calling you to come a little
closer to Him, and I know you will
respond to His call.
In addition to your individual at-
temnt to become more Christ-like I
Am asking you to be loyal to the ser
vice at church. Remember your ex
ample counts, and if you fail to fulfil
your obligations, you will find others
failing too. and your example has
wrought the harm. Your example
tends to build up the Church or to
pull it down.
That this Lent may be a period ol
real spiritual refreshment to you is
the most earnest prayer of your min
ister. Your Friend and Rector,

Raleigh, N. C Feb. 8. Trial of the
dissolution suit against' the Tri-
State Co-operative Tobacco Market

matter of interest in the Capital dur

being dismissed. The attempt to

Company back here from New York

Trial of the dissolution suit against
the Co-ods brought by Willie M. Per
son of Franklin county took place
Friday. A multitude was on hand
to hear the arguments which poten
tially might have spelled the death
of the co-operative marketing in thiB
section. There was some damaging
evidence in the way of excessive sal
aries and fees paid officials while the
farmers could not collect for crops,
but Judge Calvert found' no evidence
of fraud or insolvency to warrant dis-i
solving the association and therefore
ruled the suit out of court. Mr.
Person served notice of appeal to the
Supreme court. Generally speaking
Judge Calvert found that the mem
bers and the directors had cognizance
of what was going on and the direc
tors were given a free hand in op
erating and therefore their actions
could not be termed fraudulent. A
good effect of the suit will bo that the
co-od management will probably pay
a little more attention to the rights
of the growers and a little less to
their own enrichment in the future.

All men are not created equal
There is a line of distinction thai
sets apart types of men. And, thosd
types are as recognisable as the differ-'
ence between the zenith and the nadir.
It has been said that man Is that
strange connecting link between tho.
earth and heaven. How ever that may
be, the citizenship of the Tenth Con

fact that there is truth in Tennyson's
exclamation, "The old order chang-

Hon. Felix E. Alley, a man among
men, a citizen ol mgnest cauore, a
lawyer without a peer in Western
North Carolina, a gentleman with the
grace of the cavalier, an intellect at
bright as the shrewd Webster, a per
sonality as genial as a Wilson; and, a
home-loving, God-fearing father and
husband; is a candidate for the nom
ination for member of Congress from
his district. He did not put himself
forward, or thrust himself upon the
voters of th6 district He is not an
ambitious politician. He has simply
heard the voice of the people, and
knows the full significance of the old
adage: "Duty is the sublimest word
in the English language." And, with
thorough appreciation of the obli
gations to his lellowman, ne nan
stepped forth in the strength and
vigor of his splendid qualities, and
throws back to the doubting populance
his never changing, iron clad, eloquent
determination, to represent the peoplo
of the Tenth Congressional district
Will he be the choice of the people T
There is not a thinking man, woman
or child, throughout his. district, wh
ever heard his rhymttical voice
and felt the magic tenderness of his
hands; there is not a voter in the dis
trict that will not admit that he is
eminently qualified; and, there is no
a foe, except a being with an animal's
instinct, that would dare to stain his
integrity or discolor his title to tho
nomination. He is a man of the peo
ple! No great crisis in the history
of nations has failed to produce a
"Man of Je Hour." He has the wel
fare of the people at heart He com
prehends the ijatinal issues as no oth
er man in tne omnci, aim,
esses those superb qualities of dis
crimination between the "true and
the false." His opponents suggest
that his candidacy is premature. Alas,
what a deceptive thought. The. light of
education has torn away the gloom
cast by the cheap politician. Human
ity i a thinking element. There
never was a time in the his
tory- of the American people,
when there was such an abso
lute demand for leadership of unwav
ering fidelity to the Guiding Star of
True Democracy. The people will
determine the adequacy of his pres
ent desire to represent. I would not
squander a moment in comparing him
with- any other candidate in the field,
Wo ; thn finished nroduct. The un-
Questionable statesman of the people,
The very hypothesis par excellence

Tenth district. And, the people know
that he is no dullard. We know that
he will run smooth in the operation

Rome was not built in a day. The
United States Government had a be

of our citizenship will keep that insti

people know that "The Old Gray
Mare ain't what she use to be," and,
they know that Zeb Weaver never will
be what they hoped he would be.
Folks, Felix Alley will mount the
ladder rung by rung, until he reaches
the pinacle of achievement, for human
possibility, as a representative of
this district "When the roll is called
up yonder, Hell be there." When the
Great Smoky Mountain Park is placed
before Congress, "H'11 be there." And,

Views From Our
RATCLIFF COVE (COMMUNICA- j
TION. . -r, j
We have passed throughanother
year which goes down in history as
one of the most remarkable in the
way of progress and achievements on
all lines of endeavor in the history
of our country. Although there has
been some obstructions and disap
pointments, but in the main it has
been one of optomistic view in reach
ing the goal for which all good people
and patriotic citizens have been striv-i
ing to bring into realization, "Peace
on earth, good will toward man." An
we now are entering into this new
year we should not relax our efforts
and co-operata together and accom
plish more for the good of the human
race and make our country one o
which we will feel honored by being a
'. Our National law makers after
spending the holidays at home are in
session again with many important
measures before them for considera
tion. The lower house seems to have
laid down partison politics, have be
come to realize the importance of
coming to the relief of our country
and have passed the tax' reduction bill
which claims the attention of our law
makers as much or more than any
other measure that is now confronting
them. Whether the bill as passed by
Lthe house is best for the masses of
fthe people or not time will prove, but
it meets the approval of the adminis
tration and large per cent of the bus
iness men of our ountry. But in go
tng up to the upper house where ac
cording to the usual course of prece
dent it will receive some hard knocks
and many amendments and likely to
be changed in many respects, but it
is to be hoped that the Senate will
act the part of wisdom and revise the
bill (if it needs any revising) that will
meet with the approval of the admin
istration and will become the law of
the land. Then business will be stab,
lized and the business men and all in
dustries in making investments will
have some degree of assurance as to
what the outcome will be. Then there
are many other measures that are
claiming the attention of our law
makers, viz. the farm relief measure
which is one of the, most important
measures Delore Jongress oi wnicn
there seems to be some division of
opinion, but is the opinion of tho
writer that what is most needed is leg
islation that is not of a discriminate
nature; one that will place the farm
products on the same basis equal with
all other industries. Then there is the
Musel Shoals problem which has been
before Congress for the past five
years with nothing diffinitely accom
plished, but present indications point
o some legislation will be enacted that
will settle the problem which will in
all probability be beneficial to all
concerned which has claimed the at
tention of the whole world for a long
time. It has been discussed from ev
ery view point in trying to keep as far
away from the League of Nations or
anything that would recognize the
great principles and ideals set forth
and advocated by Woodrow Wilson.
But with all the scheming and par
tisan politics that can be brought to
bear there is a leaning toward the ju
dicial tribunal as set up by Woodrow
Wilson and other men of vision. Pres
ident Harding in his last message to
Congress recommended our entrance
into a World Court, believing that it
was the medium by which world peace
could be accomplished. President
Coolidge in two annual messages has
recommended and urged entering into
the court, believing it would be a
tremendous influence in bringing peace
between all nations. In a recent mes
sage the President recommended the
acceptance of an invitation extended
by the council of the League of Na
tions to participate in its deliberation
and asked for an apropriation of fifty
thousand dollars for the purpose of
defraying expenses by joining the
council so it is very apparent that the
administration will have to act the
part of discretion as the young man
who 'Went courting and found a bug
in his soup. In order to relieve him
self of the embarrassed situation
swallowed soup : bug and all, so it
seems that the administration, will
have to swallow Wilson's ideal leaguq
in order to carry out the purpose and
aim of our country when we entered
the World War.

HAYWOOD'S NEWEST ENTER
PRISE. One of the latest enterprises that
of tho Machinery Placement Service
which started business the first of the
year with a two fold purpose, namely.
First, to sell any equipment around
a plant or factory, that is not needed,
but in good condition.
Second, to buy for the plant or fac
tory any equipment on the same con
ditions from the other fellow.
However, if new equipment is de
