UETKHMIXATIOX HA S
During the war. at one 01 the Southern
naming camps for negroes, a buck private start
ed out one night to see his best girl in the near,
by town. When he had gone but a short wavs
he was halted by the sentrv
'Halt! Who goes there? Have vou got 'i
'Naw sun. What is a pass?"
"A pa.v is a piece of paper that will permit
you to leave the camp. I nless vou have a pas-v
you can't get by."
At this imt the private was rather upef
and aggravated. Reaching in his inside co;it
pocket he brought forth a long open-blade
razor, .slowly lie opened it and said:
' Look here guard, my mother is in heaven ;
my father is in hell and my gal is in town and
I'm going to see one of them tonight."
Moral: With enough determination, there
are few things that cannot be accomplished
even if the odds are against us-

But can business and industry stand it?
These who employ and who must depend
upon sales and profits with which to pay more
people more money, where will they the

THE GAS THAT KILLS
The belief that carbon monoxide poisoning
! mav be responsible for a great many automo.
bile accidents to which other causes have been
assigned was advanced recentlv at the P it th
! Annual Greater X'ew York Safety Conference at
the Hotel Pennsylvania by L. T. White, of the
! Cities Service Oil Company.
Speaking before one of the five afternoon
j sessions. Mr. White told of studies made by his
company revealing the presence of the gas in
many passenger automobiles when drivers had
no idea that it was there. Ht- indicated that
improper ventilation and improper combustion
ui-i'" the chief causes.
"No one doubts the ability of carbon mon
oxide to kill." said the speaker. "Hence no one
should doubt its ability to diminish the mental
;.!..'! phy-ical faculties of any motorist.
"The ditleieiice between an accident and
!:. accii i'-ht is often a matter f iwhfs. Assum
ing 'hat one second i riquired by tile average
adtil! for t:ie executioi: of an idea, a 1" per een
ie- selling o!' lij- alertne-- is ,. factor in the can -e
if an accident."
He a-serted that '." per cent of tin gaso
line. propelled vehicles of the country are pro
ducing "wanton qualities" of carbon monoxide.

The mountainous area of North Carolina
has suffered along with other sections of the
country insofar as development of its resort
possibilities is concerned.
The boom of six or seven years ago reach"!
unprecedented heights and immediately after
ward proceeded to reach unprecedented depths
But keep your eyes on the mountainous
district, 'iou're going to see some real Pro

it would pay the counties comprising that area,
to get together and put across a constructive
program of publicity. Thev would find it a
mighty profitable proposition. The State.

At a negro revival meeting converts were
coming down the aisle by the dozen. One color
ed man strode down to the altar and knelt. He
was barefooted and his two enormous feet stuck
up behind him. In a moment the preacher
started up the aisle, kneeling here and there
beside the converts. The near sighted old man
peered earnestly at the negro, patted him on
tne shoulder and nuirmered, "Bless vou, broth

I hardly believe there is anyone who

out of it.

The contest that The Mountaineer
is putting on is certainly creating

how hard it is to keep errors out of

quacks, patent medicines, and get-nch-quick specialists. These
warnings cannet be given too often nor too loudly
ii,'t i" 'S a. "asoni1n-f animal who forgets to reason when the
situation most demands it. The trust and faith which the average
person places in hearsay statements regarding patent medicine
advertisements, get-r.ch-quick specialists, and others of their ilk
is one of the paradoxes of human intelligence. '
Than "they say" no two words when applied to the healing
art do more damage- "They say" prescribes more medicine than
the doctors m the country; and. incidentally kills more people.
"They say ' that a certain old lady can remove warts by the
pow-wow process; "they say" that this and the other is good for
headaches; "they sayv that the-highly, "advertised doctor can cure
any disease in any stage. "They say" and "thev say." And mill
ions of otherwise sensible men and women, without asking proof,
look up the sorceress, patent medicine, or quack, and spend their
money to be cured of a disease they never were afflicted with.
The wise person will seek for a more solid foundation for his
health condition than "they say." When something goes wrong
with his physiological machinery he- will consult a thoroughly
Cimpetent physician. -From Health Bulletin.
