STTJBBS Building, over Brevard's Store Phone No. 51 la Clede NWrVVWVSrVWVWi Our playgoers will reccUoa treat next Tuesday night at tho opera house by witnessing "Tho District Attorney." It is a high class comedy, full of heart intorest with a love story running through it that grips the audience from tho riso of the curtain until the final fall on the last act. There Is an Intensely amusing and deeply Interesting situation every minute. Like Brewster's Millions, Lord Barrister Is troubled with too much money. "Tho District Attornoy" had a run of 300 nights In Now York and Is said by critics to bo ono of the prettiest high-clascomedies produced In years "Tho District Attorney," like all of tho Allen & Poore productions, carries an exceptionally strong cast. s A dollar a month does not go far enough after it gets into tho telephono company's treasury to satisfy tbe manager who has to pay the upkeep and operating expenses on a big rural line system, and keep a little small change to hand over to stockholders once in six months. He has to cut too many corners, and run too many chances of getting caught short of a bank, balance by a sleet, storm, or a law suit. Twelve dollars Is too low for farmers' lino service on the average system, with the quality and cost Improved as, it has been in the last few years. It is time to start after this rate. The farmers can afford to pay more why should not thoy be Induced to recognize value received? Of course we know what tho farmers do when it In proposed to raise tho telephono rate. But can this goon forever? What is tho best way tq get this thing into better shape? The American Journal of Telephony.

This la presidential year and while the subject of president will be the biggest topic discussed, It would be well to know Just how we solect him. Starting at tho bottom of the ladder, wo will state that tho different political parties elect delegates at primaries which meet some time in the summer of the year designated for the election of a president and choose candidates for the office. On the second Tuesday after the first Monday In November the people meet at the polls and vote for two presidential electors from each congressional district and two at large. The total number from one state i tho same as that state has representatives and senators in the national congress. On the second Monday In January theso electors meet In the respective capitals of each state and cast separate ballots for prosldent Three returns and vice president. of this election are then sealed separately; one is sent to tho district court, another to tho president of the United States senate by mall, and tho eamo person by messenger. On the second Wednesday In February these returns are opened In the presence feof both houses of congress and tho votes are counted. The ono receiv ing the majority for president Is do clnred elected; the same with tho vice- president. But if no ono has n majority for presidont the house of representatives votes on the three n anion who have the largest number of votes. The one receiving tho majority In this caso is declared elected. It a vice president falls to bo elected the senate votes on the two highest candidates for that position, and '.he result decides tho case. The successful candidates aro inaugurated on on tho 4th of March. Don't fool yourself about sewing you want. Get the best the Singer why of course. Best machlti and easiest terms. Wo make them sing.

Like hugo serpents of clear sea water the fjords of Norway wrlgglo miles Inward Into tho land nnd oiler to the cyo so mo of the most picturesque landscapes In too world. At times the channel narrows between sheer cliffs to tho width of a tourist steamer and then it suddenly broadens out Into an Inland lake bordered with meadows and deep green ptne forests. Farther north glaciers and snowflelds come down almost to the water's edge and nature Is barren excepting where a few hardy plants struggle for a bare existence. According to geologists those, Intrlcnto fjords were formed by the movement of Ice In the glacial period. One mass of Ice spread from Russia across the Ualtlc sea and Swedon to tho valleys of Nor. way, tho other pushed eastward from the Atlantic and It was In these fjords, then high-lai- n valleys, that the two frozen waves fought agnlnst each other, wearing away soil and strand until, when the lco melted, the valleys had disappeared and fjords had taken their place. But gigantic rocks and peaks which had resisted tho frlcUon of the glaciers remained. There are at loast 160,000 of theso Islands, some of them over 3,000 feet In height, and their grotesque shapes aro not tho least attractive feature In the weird panorama of broken sea and land.

The representative met with tho Industrial Committee of the Kentucky Club, and mado them this proposition: That they would tako their business out of tho N. C. & St. L. railroad office and put it in tho office of tho Cumberland Telephone Co., employ an operator who will havo no other business than to look after this service, glvo us night and day service, etc., provided our peoplo would favor them in tho matter of business as far as wo could consistently. Wo aro not obligated In any respect, but tho company asks our' In bettering tho mutual service. The committee, after a thorough discussion of tho matter, rccommondlng adopted resolutions the change, and asking our business men to glvo them all the patronage they can In return for Uio Improvement In servlco wo aro to get. It might be stated further that tho Western Union and tho Cumberland Tclephomo Co. aro no longer competitors, but arc under tho samo management, which as a matter of 'act gives them Increased facilities for handling business. If tho proposed change la made, Mgr. D. Owens will havo charge of both companies. Wo would 6tato for tho sake of Agt. H. B. Johnson, that this chnnge Is no reflection on tho ability and efforts of hlmsolf or his office force; it was simply a matter of having all tho railroad business ho could look after without linndllng tho telegraph business. In ii short time Hickman will have another telegraph company tho Poswill tal Telegraph. This concern como in over the wires of tho C. M. & O.

Hickman needs a plant of this kind. Mr. Curlln's product includes various apparel, largely coats, that will turn water.
