to money. making, and that is saving as large
a proportion of earnings as possible for future
use. With or without luck the natural' money

is to hold on to the money he makes. Then it

HARRY HOI OINI
A recent article recounts the fact of the
late Harry Houdini. who was perhaps the great,
est magician of all time a man whose mys
terious performances led many to believe that
he was endowed with supernatural power.'
But Homlini himself made no such claims.
He declared tnat he performed his astounding
exhibition acts through sheer physical dexterity
acquired by years ot studv and practice. His
ability to escape from a wooden box. wrapped
with ropes and chains, m which he was bound
hand and foot and placed under water, was a
remarkable example ol his skill, while he re
peatedly demonstrated that he could release
himself from any kind of handcuff' or shackles
that might be placed upon him
One ot Houdini's feats was to remain in a
sealed coffin under water for an hourand a half,
conserving the oxygen in the small air space In
taking short ami infrequent breaths.
Much attention was given by Homlini to the
exposure of spiritualistic mediums, all of whom
he denounced mdi-cnminatelv a frauds. He
made a standing oirer of $10,000 to any medium
who could produce any phenomena which he
could not duplicate through natural agencies.
The reward was never claimed.
Houdini wrote several books on various
phases of his art, but it is said. that the secrets
of his most important and almost increditable
performances died with him.
During his lifetime he thrilled millions of
spectators throughout the world, including
many rulers and notalbles, but his most lasting
contribution to the advancement of civilization
was his fearless and uncompromising warfare
upon charlatanry in all its forms, (and its at
tendant frauds and superstitions. E.

way to get rid of them. (ireenwood Inde.x.
THE .MOUTCACE LIFTER
a recent editorial the Ueidsville Review
:it tile cow wa s now the mortiratr lifter

now wry true in Haywood and more so since the
establishment of the creamery here.
U'e.-tern North Carolina has always been
known as a .at L ! ,; dairy cattle be
cause of the fine grazing which is afforded here,
but in this county there has not been much
effort put forth except by a few to take ad.
antage of this. Since the creamery is here
and paying cash for the dairy products, we feel
ma. the dairying industry in Haywood
iin the threshold of a new dav.
Hi backing up their statement, the Review
"Farmers' around Ueidsville used to refer
to the hog as the mortgage lifter.' Hut that
was back in the days before the big meat pack
ers found a way to keep prices down to where
thin h no longer any profit in raising them.
Now there is a different story to tell, for it ap.
peus thi' cow is coming forward to claim the
"During 1!):!:; the cows of this country cre
ated an income of a billion, two hundred and
fifty million dollars, or one-fifth of the estab
lished income from agriculture. Recent years
hac brought a decline in the income from dairy
ing, tile same as from everything else, and yet
figures indicate that while the general farm in
come has declined T", per cent that of the dairies
was reduced only 25 per cent. However, the
cow has gone .right on giving all the fine rich
milk she can create, unrestricted by the federal
order for reduction in product. And' best of all,
the products of the cow do not have, to depend
on a foreign market. They are nearly all con,
slimed right here in the United States.
"It would seem that the cow, idly chewing
her cud, is doing her part just as faithfully as
the giant industries with their screaming Blue
Eagles tacked on the walls. It would seem, too,
that once we get completely back to normal we
should set aside a special day for honoring this

SOME DO'S AND DO NTS
We once asked a physician if he thought
so-called spring tonics, made of roots and herbs,
did people any good. His reply was: "Yes. If
they'll get out in the fresh air and dig the roots
and .herbs themselves."
With the season of "that tired feeling"
well underway, quoting the do's and don'ts of
that old family physician are both timely and
helpful. Like many doctors, he took little stock
in so-called body-builders. He had a set of
rules that he believed beat them all hollow and
now is a good time to put them into practice.
Here they are:
Do get into the open air and sunshine.
Do become an outdoor crank; cultivate
some form of recreation in the open air.
Do remember that a sun-tan will do more
good than a spring tonic.
Do expose the body to direct sunlight,
. which is just as important as food.
Did eliminate regularly all poison from
Do eat fruit and vegetables.
Don't forget to mix play with your work.
Don't be ashamed of a healthy tan. but
a oid serious sunburn.
Don't fail to get plenty of exercise before
the hot months arrive.
Don't wait until a cold has progressed to
a sei ious stage before giving it proper attention.
Don't permit waste matter to accumulate
in the body that is what causes a sluggish
liver, and it's a sluggish liver that brings on
that tired feeling. Ex.

22 Years Ago
I've never been t Sleepy .Hollow,
up in New York state, hut I imag
ine that U'ayne.-vilU '. on Sumlay
and .Monday had every resemblance
of. that famous old .spot- Every
other - person . 1 met on the street
Suno-y and -Monday was half
a-ie. and haieiy getting by until
Kvin. if the curfew law here . took
in aiiuii-s ' there would not nave been
many violations over Sunday and
.Mondav. 1 he population here was
ju.-t naturally' dead for a sleep. .
A little trip in the rural sections
Sunday afternoon indicated that the
country people Were already asleep
even the hound.- yawned as if they
had been up all Saturday night get
ting the lection returns.
About the most pitiful thing of the
election to me wa.s about four o'clock
Sunday morning, a young man came
up to where the last tabulations were
being made on the board and said.
"Please,: mister, tell me who is
ahead in the 'lection."
For a minute I . thought he was
diunk, or trying to play a joke on
me. but I found I was wrong he
couldn't read and although he had
been there ever since sunset he did
not know how it was going. Kven
at that early hour I took time off
to explain- the different standings, and
he appreciated the returns more than
any of the two thousand that got the
returns from The Mountaineer.
Another man who. had long before
passed out and was following the
halo of his nose for light, wanted to
know how things were going. When
he was told that Al Smith and Hoover
were leading he started cheering
but not to be. outdone he wanted a
piece of paper to put the "Figures
down en." ,
Some elderly : lady was certainly
interested in the sheriif's race, be
cause she called fur . information.
Each time she . hung up hurriedly
without giving a word of comment.
until about one o'clock the results
Were slightly changed and she re
joiced at the hews and called no more.
I imagine, .she slept peacefully anil
if I knew, who
a. 1 don't here
, I wouldn't tell thi
was back of it. but
About midnight one woman called
and wanted to know the results in
a certain race. ,. 1 gave them to her
but it was not what she wanted her
candidate w as behind, and - then she
asked if I thought there was a
chance for him to catch up. When I
informed that T did .not know she
seemed rather hurt. He was defeated.
The Soco Cap Kami' boys perhaps
had about as good a time as any
one. They played until about two
'clock and kept folks pepped up
whether the returns were going to
suit them or not.
After all, it was a grand old election-
The suspense was terrible to
many, but after all what would life
be without a little suspense and a
few elections along? As for me,
I'm ready for another election as soon
as I catch up with sleep.
