Thursday July 3, 1924. A jreat deal of unfavorable comment has come from the action oi Mr. Grist in demanding a second primary to decide the result o? the contest between he and Mr. Shipman for the nomination fo?- commissioner of Labor and Printing. A good deal of expense has been occasioned by his action, but his convictions were no doubt well founded, and we would that the voters turn out on next Saturday, considering the fact that the man who caused the second primary is well qualified for the position. and having been enlisted in the American force- during the war and dismissed with an enviable record we think . all other things being equal Mr. Grist should perhaphave at least one slice of the political pie that has been served exclu lively to another for so many years The other gentleman has been alto gather efficient so far as we know hut we felt constrained to say thes? feW words, at ai y rat . for our prin ter friend fr??in the neighboring coun ty. -o We should not longer neglect t? express our thanks to our railroat people for their thoughtfulness in ei ectimr large and commodious shed for the comfort and convenience o the traveling public. This improve merit has been needed for a long tim and is but another evidence of ih desire of the company to keep stei pace by pace with the progress an advancement of our splendid littl city. Mention should also be mad of two new and badly needed depot unloaded at Hodges Gap and Wink ler's siding recently from the sam flat ear. DESTRUCTION OF THE i 1 OWF.K A number of times during the par few days the question of the ruthles destruction of tne wild flower.- in rhi vicinity has been disea sed and way named for trying to protect them On different occasions automobile have been seen on the -'roots of thi town absolutely loaded with rhodo dendron, the smaier bushes often be intr taken as a whole. The result o this must be painfully noticeable whei again the flowers should be blooming The Charlotte Observer has writtei along this line as follows; People returning from tne moun tain section have given the Moori County News account of condition developed this season which havi caused much concern to the native: of the hills. 1. is the wanton destrac tion of wayside flowers. Some peo p'e going into the mountains in re cent weeks have found the roadsidi practically stripped of flowers. Thi condition had explanation in the lit tering of the surface and drains wit] discarded blanches of r'nododendro and laurel. Automobiles with flower sticking out me siaes unlCBBa t the front ami hack of machines wer encountered every few miles. Th mountain flowers soon wilt whe pulled and carried any distance i the hot sun, and many of these d< spoilers finding the flowers reduce to shapeless and ugly masses, do m even wait to dump them at home bi cast them away as they go. It is deplorable fact that the famous tui pike between Lenoir and Biowii ( Rock traversing one of the mo , beautiful sections of the mountai and in years past noted for its frini of floral beauties, lias been almc stripped of flowers, while many fi: rliodenaron and laurel bushes ha C.

And the residents of the mountains as well as the more thoughtful throng of travelers have looked or this daily devastation in helpless protest. What is to be done to remedy such a situation? Possibly the State High way Commission might render some . help i n placarding the roadside with . appealing signs, but the remedy is , in the conscience of the people who ; travel the highways. It > true these - flowers grow v.ild, but they belong - to the land which they adorn, as truly as cultivated flowers belong to the private garden. It is certain that un> less the 'depredations are stopped the ,1 time is close at hand when the peo. pie who love the mountain flowers s and who have derived much pleasure f from yearly indulgence in their gor geousncss, will be forced to gar far t- from the highway in order to revel e in their beauty, for during the pros ent season a perfect riot of vandalism d has reigned. e ree Parent Teacher* Association ^ The. regular meeting of the Pa* rent Teachers Association will bo c held this week on Saturday instead of Friday, since Friday is a national holiday.
