The Richmond Times Dispatch
says: “North Carolina has fur
nished Richmond another small

So much for the splendid adver
tising the chief editorial writer on
the Times-Dispatch is giving Rich
mond. Some days ago the Times-
Dispatch exploited the advantages
of Richmond, a city where the sun
shines brightest and ihe birds sing
sweetest, and where the gods have
set their seals saying there is no
other place so fair, and sending
out a general invitation, saying to
all, “Come and abide with us.’’
Sam read that editorial, perhaps,
believed firmly in his soiil that the
invitation extended even unto
Coon Hollow, his home in the
county where Independence first
blossomed, and he straightway
hied himself to the fair city of
seven hills and took along a case
of the dreaded small pox with him.
So much for Sam. But our friends
should not complain. We have
given them some of our best men
who are identified with the spirit
ual, intellectual and commercial
uplight of Richmond and in giving
so much that is good it w as only
natural that a little evil should
creep in. Put Sam in the pest

The millionaire is busy with
large enterprises and leaves a sec

the small bills unimportant and
puts them aside while he attends
to "more serious" matters. As if
anything could be more serious
than the needs of the man or wo

More frequently, however, I be
lieve the fault of these neglected
hills lies with women of wealth.

Hundreds of unhappy marriages

There is nothing more humilia

THE NORTH CAROLINA I'EIIERA-
(Miss Eli 'abeth Schwanberg, Chair

One of the best ways to cultivate
a love for the beautiful is to begin
with our own surroundings. Civic
beauty means cleanliness, comfort,
pride. The vacant lot over
grown with weeds and brush
is a reproach to any neighborhood.
Civic beauty is not an idle dream,
it is an easily realized ideal.
The reports that have come to
this department are most encour-
ing. Though not all the towns
represented in the Federation have
a civic department in their clubs,
yet those that have, report better
work done this year, and the com
mittee has helped to arouse new
One of our newest civic clubs,

most of which tias been spent in

hall, now the library and club
room. A civic league in one town
organized with a cleaning day, and
a law imposing a fine for expectora
ting on the side walks. Another
civic league is determined to have
clean and beautiful streets and
lawns, while still another exercises
close observance of health laws.

To those clubs w'hich have not
attempted anything along civic
lines, the committee wishes to
make a plea that they inaugurate a
movement towards better condi

Will not clubs which have not al
ready established junior civic
leagues for the training of olt
school children in principles of
law, order and cleanliness, do so
at once? There is no town but
can enlist the help of the children
in the effort to have clean streets
if they are taught ihis, and have
cultivated in them a taste for beau
ty and cleanliness.
