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.

C Feb. 8. Trial of the dissolution suit against' the Tri- State Co-operative Tobacco Market ing Association was the outstanding matter of interest in the Capital dur ing the week,"the suit for dissolution being dismissed. The attempt to bring former heads of the Fisheries Company back here from New York tti' stand trial also was of interest Governor McLean bad a busy week handling a mass of routine which piled during his absence front the city in New York selling state bonds. The Executive took a day off Friday to welcome v Will v Rogers, e celebrated comedian, to the city, the day being termed "Will Rogers Day" for Ral eigh. 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. The failure of the Fisheries Pro ducts Company several years ago cost North and South Carolina in vestora millions of dollars. Governor Smith has granted extradition from New York of Thomas H. Hayes and Ravmond Anderson, form officers ofi the company, so that they may stand trial for fraud. The two men are, fighting the extradition and have ap pealed to New York's highest court from the Governor's decision. The case will come up in the near future at Albany, N, Y., and will be closely watched in North Carolina. North and South Carolina will com-t bine in June for a special trial which' will go to the Pacific Coast advertis in the attractions of the two states Governor McLean is enthusiastic over the project which has its beginning with Carroll P.

Alley With beauty clad, with health i every vein, and reason throned upon his brow; stepped forth immorta man." ' i 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 gressional district are awake to the fact that there is truth in Tennyson's exclamation, "The old order chang- th, yielding place to the new, and God fulfills Himself in many ways, lest one good custom should corrupt the world."' 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 of Congressional timber from the Tenth district. And, the people know that he is no dullard. We know that he will run smooth in the operation of the governmental machinery. Rome was not built in a day. The United States Government had a be ginning; and, only the highest types of our citizenship will keep that insti tution secure for the people. Tho 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, what will he dot 'He will weave gar lands of rhetoric,' unfolding the glo ries of Western North Carolina, to statesmen from every state in the Union. What will he dot He will soon stand in the Halls of Congresn as the greatest orator from the South since the days of Henry W. Grady.

(Continued on another page.), Views From Our Correspondent 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 citizen. '. 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.
