In the issue of your paper of
April 7th, we notice ad article
written for the Cincinnati En
quirer by a lady that visited this
town recently from New York
City and can truly say she has
misrepresented this-place,in every
thing. She states the people,
that is razin'^ of the natives, do
not know what U. S. money is, or
have never seen it. This is false.
And there arc only .34 houses
and chat they’ are owned by a cer
tain individual and that he also
owns the Black Mountain Railway
which is all untrue; The ciiti-
zens here own all tfae land, and
are industrious, law-abiding men,
and .some of them are worth sev
eral thousand doH.irs, have good
schools and churches and -live in
good houses and own several
farms, and are educating their
children. She also writes that
every house in town .was a room
ing place of one or more of the
company. This is a mistake.
They only boarded at three
houses and the people treated
them very kind and nice in every
way. That is all some of the
New York and Northern people
are good for, is to say something
against the South and the people,
making a false impression among
strangers. There is as good peo
ple and as nice, refined and edu
cated people here in Yancey coun
ty and Western North Carolina
as we ever met anywhere. The
people are very much wrought up
over this affair.

Put in screen doors and win
dows now is the advice of the
State Hoard of Health against
the coming of warm weather and
Hies. Today's bulletin from the
State Health Department says:
“Warm weather is here and ac
cording to the nature and flies,
flies will be here by the hundred
fold in about a week or so, and
whoever would be prepared
against their arrival would liave
their doors and windows welt
screened. Doors that remained
in place all winter are likely to be
found sagging or holes punched
'll them, or perhaps this was the
condition in which they were put
away last fall. Anyway it is
high time that old screens should
be repaired and put in place, and
that orders be given for new ones
wherever they are needed.”
Says the bulletin further:
“Since the winter flies were sv’at-
ted and since they have found
feeding and perhaps breeding
places about your premises, the
best thing you can do now, since
they are nere, is to screen them
out. Hut don’t spend money on
extension window screen
Screens that are made to fit your
doors and windows are quite more
efficient and in the long run
cheaper. If you can't afford
these now, use mosquito netting
for another season until you c?in
afford them. Mosquito netting,
if well put up, tacked close and
made firm, will prove better than
e.xtension or ill-fitting screens
and will last a season.’’
The bulletin says in conclusion:
“There really is no reason why
any one should toler.ate flies, ex
cept from his own choice.”
