The first and the old-ir of these dis

The Becond distinction which is of

THE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL.
Editor Carolina Mountaineer:
I want to say a word about the
new proposed hospital for Haywood
County. Don't know that I would
have shown much interest in it had 1
not spent five weeks in the one now
operated in Waynesville, the first of
the year. I had a leg broken Mn the
sixth day of last January, in an au
to collision. Up to that time I had
heard only of the hospital; but while
there I found that it was one of the
very important institutionas in the
county. Every room and bed was
full almost all the time I was there.
People were brought there all times
of day and night. The doctors op-
I erated on sick people two or three
' almost every day. Many poor peo-
P'e were brought there and treated
who could not pay at once, and were
given the time needed to pay. No

pic could not be treated successfully at
home, but must be under the care of

Those who have never been sick

E. Church, South, July 7, 1925.
P. S. I want to say that we have
some as good doctors in this county
as you will find anywhere. They are
not only up-to-date, but they are
kind and Christian in their treatment
of the poor and suffering. I don't
know if all of them profess to be
Christians, but they do show a beau,
tiful spirit of helpfulness to sufferers.

Are you in favor of providing the best available means for
saving human life?
Are you in favor of placing within the reach of every resi

of human suiFering due to disease and accidents?
And who can believe that anyone entitled to a vote is not in
favor of all available provisions of that kind?
A properly equipped county hospital stands at the head of
all the proisivons of that class.

Massie, who compose the firm are,
individually and collectively, adepts
in the cultivation of good will. Other
wise, they could hardly, in the compar
atively few years the firm has bee
in existence, have built up the mast
extensive furniture business in West
ern North Carolina west of Asheville.
That they have done this seems un
disputed. They buv practically aK

them advantages which they pass on
to their customers and thus nlon?
with a small margin of profit gain an
increase of everv growin" good will.
The lines carried by this fi;-m in

instruments of various kinds, carpets
and other floor coverings and trunks
and baps in great variety. The na

That this firm wfH continue ' to
