"WHY STAND VE IDLE"
Agitation ol Good Roads In Th County-County
The press is getting to the point.
Good roads cost money, but not
as much as bad roads cost.
The writer was educated when young
to avoid debt, but many a young
man of merit, brains and industry
has made a fortune on borrowed cap
ital, The only possible way for Ran
dolphto build McAdam roads is to
issue bonds, say, $300,000. 30
years to commence with. This course
has been pursued in Mecklenburg
county which has and is improving
rapidly in wealth and population.
The writer formerly hankd cotton
to Charlotte. Four bales was a big
load for three horses; now ten bales
can be drawn by two horses on the
new roads, which with slight repairs
will probably last as long as the
rock ballast roads in Italy, which are
still said to be good. And they were
built by the Caesars before the ad
vent of our Savior.
The old adage " No one lives so
far from market as he who has noth
ing to sell" and no one is less able to
meet the acute competition of the
present day than he wboae wheat,
corn, cotton, etc, costs ten to twenty-
fiye per cent, extra to haul it to mar
: Guilford has been hauling rock
out of this county for some time to
use in their road building. Why
not eo to usine it ourselves. Our
roads are gradually getting worse
almost so bad now that a young man
can't carry bis best girl in a light
cent subscribers to count one sub
scription in the contest.
Now here are the "sure things''
prizes those you KNOW you can
get whether you win one of the oth
er prizes or not.
To every person sending us twelve
subscribers at one time with twelve
dollars, we will give a handsome
water set the best made, or, if vou
prefer, a set of genuine
knives and forks, either of these sell
anywhere for $5.00 to $0.00. Or to
anv person, who will send us 18 sub -
scriptions with $1S.00, we will send
both these premiums.
But that is not all, we
make auother offer that every
body can get and that is that
every worker, who will send us six
subscription at one time accompani
ed bv Sli.OO, we will give a
j fine porcelain, 30 piece breakfast
j set or for live subscriptions we will
' .rive a handsome stereoscope and
48 colored scenes from all parts of
of the world. This break last set
; never sold for less than $4.00 ,
i and it is worth 0.00 anywhere '
and the stereoscope and views
; are worth fully as much as the
breakfast set, or if any worker will .

We know you will wonder how
we can make such a remarkable
offer. To be frank with vou we
couldn't if we did not know from
'experience that three-fourths of the
;' new subscribers obtained in this
wnv will be turned into regular
subscribers at the end of the year,
, We are paying you handsomely
simply to get them started for us.
The merit of the paper itself will
do the rest and in the long run we
will make a prolit and you will be
doing your community a good turn
by inducing the people to read a
paper which teaches them how to
make more money from their farms
and in various occupation.
To evervone who sends us as much
$100.00 for subscriptions and job
work together we will give a Chain- !
p;on New Home bewing Machine.
Any young man who wants a pair

Old Time Tobacco Legislation.
It is 0112 of the notable features of
old-time legislation, that the use of)
tobacco in early colonial days was
regarded by the magistrates aud
elders as far more injurious, degrad
ing and sinful than that of intoxi
cating liquors. Both the use and
the planting of the weed were for
bidden; the cultivation of it being
only permitted in small quantities
for "mere necessity, for physic, for
preservation of the health, and that
the same be taken privately by an
cient men." But the "creature call
ed tobacco" seemed to have an in
Mrs Alice M Earle writes of these
early restrictions about tobacco in
stage-coach and tavern life: "Land
lords were ordered not to suffer any
tobacco to be taken into- their
houses on penalty of a tine both to
the tavern-keeper and the one who
took the tobacco. The laws were
constantly altered and enforced."
And still tobacco was grown and
smoked. No one could take it pub
licly, nor in his own house-before
strangers. Men were forbidden to
smoke together. No one could
smoke within two miles of the meet
ing house on the Sabbath. There
were wicked backsliders who were
caught smoking around the corner
of the meeting house, and others on
the streets, and they were cned and
set in stocks and put in cages. Un
til within a few years, there were
New England towns where tobacco
smoking in the streets was forbidden,
and innocent tobacco-loving travel
ers were astonished on being re
quested to cease from smoking.
Mr Drake wrote in 1886, that he
knew men then living who had to
plead guilty or not guilty, in a Bos
ton police court for smoking in the
streets of Boston.. In Connecticut
in early days, a great indulgence
was granted to travelers a man
could smoke once durinsr a iournev
of ten miles. If church people
were forbidden to use tobacco a few
years ago, what about them to-day,
when it is a common thing to see
men professing to know God indulge
in the filthy habit.
.Luke v 46. Jesus says, "Ana
why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do
not the things which I say?" God
says, "Be ye clean that bear the yes
sell of the Lord."
