He is suffering quite a lot, but hopes to be out in a short time- Mr. Ervin WiL,* n was oyef from Burnsville Tuesday and Wednesday visiting Mr. and Mrs. Green Woody. 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. Dr. J. H. Hutchins, tlie dentist, is here from Burnsville doing i dental work this week. ■ Mr. and Mrs. R. I'.

Since the last report from th place the death angel has visited three homes in our community. 1 The little child of Tommy Me- i Courry was called home on the i 15th inst; was found dead in the ' bed- The little daughter of E. I Johnson died of pneumonia. Moses Peterson, Sr., died of. con sumption Sunday afternoon and was laid to rest in the Peterson cemetery on Monday. Mr. Pe terson was a veteran of the civil war and was 73 years of age. Reubjn Girland (June) stole a march on his friends, and had the “knot,tied,” last week to Miss Pansy Bailey', of Toledo,. The writer joins with his friends ; in wishing them a long and pro.s- ’ perous life over the sea of- mat rimony. M. C.

Byrd is expected back from the hospital at Kutherford- ton, where he went for two oper ations. M’e learn he is much im proved by his trip. Rev. Blankinship conducted the ordaining ceremony at the Bajjtist church Sunday, which was very impressive. Mr. Bert Peterson was ordained as deacon. Mr. Adams preached an inter- e.sting sermon at Hetliaven Sun day. Jas. A. Peterson was a. visitor at T. M.cCourrv’s one night last week.

The figures are based )n reports from department' 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.” ABOUT I Increases have bein general with exceptions Increases in the L ed to the diver- John G.
