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 ket. : 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 . send us 10 subscriptions acconi- ! n.in i,..l be si 0. v will Sii il both f, - ;.' :,,,., 1 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.

Randolph is one of the best coun ties in the State, in size, citizenship, stock, etc, and as good as any in soil. Don't let's be left, but try to keep our young men from leaving and encourage immigrants by offer ing this advantage, so badly needed by every branch of industry. I suggest that the editor of Thi Couri ee and the editor of the Bul letin unite in calling a Good Boads Convention at Asheboro soon and appoint a committee to prepare plans to be presented to the Conven tion for approval or amendment, we all have a common interest in this matter and it would be a good idea to lynch any fellow who tries to in- ject politics into the matter. 1 Delieve our people are reaay 10 take action for better roads.

(Ezra Sigliu.) 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 destructible life. 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." 1.2.i The Cause of Many Sudden Deaths. Tlier is a disease prevailing in th's country most dangerous because so decep tive, iuaur suuura deaths are caused by it heart dis ease, pneumonia, heart failure or r apoplexy are often the result ot kid ney disease. If kidnev trouble is L allowed toadvauee tliekidney-poison-ed blood will at tack the vital organs, causing catarrh of the bladder, or the kidneys themselves break down and waste away cell by cell. Bladder troubles almost always result from a derangement of the kidneys and 8.82 I a cure is obtained quickest by a proper 8.13 i treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel- 11.40' iug badly you can make no mistake by 7.00 taking Dr." Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the 7.75 ! great kidney, liver and bladder remedy. !
