No One Starved.
Editor Courier: Four years ago,
February 15th, the people in the
Raudolph stock law territory took
upon themselves the great burden,
as it was termed by some, the stock
law. At that time there was a
great cry that the present generation
would not live to see the great debt
paid which would be incurred in
carrying ont the provisions of the
law. .uespite tne cry tne law was
enacted and carried out.
Then it was predicted that many
deaths would occur fiom starvation
and all would die in the poor-house.
The writer ha9 watched very closely
the effect and has yet to find a single
death from this cause. The expeuse
incurred has been liquidated and
the territory uow has to its credit
$170.53. Everybody is better off
and no one worsted.
The writer has been traveling in
the upper part of Moore county
for the past few weeks where there is
no stock law, aud what a difference!
Take pigs, for instance. Here,
regulated by stock law, they are im
proved, aud a pig at six weeks old
is worth $2.50 while the average pig
out of the stock law territory is
hardly large enough to be worn as
a watch charm.
So much for the stock law. Now
any community, county or state is
just what the people make it. If
we want our community, county, or
state to be great we must all work I
together to that end, and we are sure
The people of Randolph have a
county to be proud of, but there is
one disgiace resting upon her that
will impede her progress through
all yeais to come unless something
is done to redeem her the deplora
ble condition of her public roads.
I hope the day is not far distant
when our people will awake to the
importance of permanently improved
roads, and take steps to better this
condition. And when they do that
fellow, who is opposed to modern
improvements, need not begin to I
yell taxes and starvation, for the
good roads will surely come. I
Talk it gentlemen, and write it, !
