' 1 • .   • i l ill I i i The Truth About Cock-roaches They say our insurance will be decreased and our insurable Values increased, and we say the rates will be increased long before there is any merger. Before there is any change in insurance there will have to be hydrants and water proiection installed, and who is going to provide it and pay for it? If this merger takes place it will stretch practically to Tug Creek and Flat Rock---certain- ly Flat Rock on which there is a steadfast eye to include, as well as Bellepoint ; thence including the mountains of Hepsedam and Keatley's Prings, thence to the upper bridge so as to include Peavine Hollow, thence around about Grant Myers' domocile; thence to New River. That territory will be greater Hinton and will dernand police protection on all the mnuntains within all that territory. The people of Bellepoint are satisfied. What there has been done for Bellepoinl has been done by its citizens. Now that it looks to the "wise men from the east," that Bellepoint has a future after so many years they want to involve it in nmre bond issues and it will not be sixty days after a merger should be passed, if such all iniquity should be permitted, until such a bond issue is proposed. Hinton lives on bonds and t axes. Within the past two years the Lincoln School Building, th& and How To Rid Yourself Of THEM - THE EASY WAY. It is not a sin to have roaches. The sin is *to keep them. If you have them (roaches) you Have done every thing like spraying, bombing, etc. with awful smelling stuff; and you still have roaches. The truth is that you can now use " ROACH PRUFE", only ONE application, which is odorless, spread it around baseboards and where they crawl, only ONE time; and in only two to four weeks you will not see any cock - roaches again. I have been through the mill in several different houses, and finally found an easy way to rid our home of roaches. I call it the "MIRACLE" for roach- riddance. Use it in new construction and yon will,never • have roaches. Sold in one pound cons'for an 8 room honpe $10.00 tax included. phone 466 - 0805. Be a good neighbor, tell your friends about "ROACH PRUFE" Just spread around in out of the way places where it wont be disturbed in cleaning and, leave it be, it will do the work, and you won have roacheS anymore.

One of the " wise men" said that Avis had nothing but ahay loft for a school building. Lest he forget, I call his attention to the Greenbrier school building which is in Avis, although liinton may claim it. Bobby Keller, one of the wise boys, says that if we do not cnnle ill he will see that Belle- point is left nut of schools. Is Bobby the Legislature? Suppose Bobby did cut Belle- point out <If schools and the cilildren of Bellepl)int turned h)ose tO become savages and illiterale, dims he think that his efforts would have that effect? No power on earth Call prevent Bellepoinl, if il is nol included in this merger, frl)m having the sanle schools that olher parts of Greenbrier District receive of eight monttls out of tbe year.

When tilts prl>posilion was firsl nlenlitmed there was nol a living human within all Ihe terril<)ry elf Bellepoint in faw)r nf it bul for reasons the)' have changed. When they state tile reasons for tile flop, what are they? l)r. Van Sanl tried to give a few, but those reasons were apparent at the begin- i nind. Was Bellepoint eonsulted a- i bout the merger? They had a joint committee of Avis and Hinton citizens• Was Bellepoint permitted to participate? Has the proposed merger bill been submitted to any citizen of Bellepoint for examination? If so, who, when and where? They say that if we are not taken in we will go to grass. We i have been in grass for lo these many years and what has these Hinton statemen done to get us out of it? The people of Bellepoint de- ! sire to be left alone; they are I patriotic, they are enterprising, the most of them own their own homes and they are working by the day to pay for them. They do not believe that they should increase their burdens at this time, and especially pay taxes without a representation.
