WASIIIXGTOK, KORTH CAROLMA, DEC. 27, 191#.
Wo are eagerly hoping that the bill collectors will ?iv* us a be
lated Christmas prcwit by remaining -out of sight on, the first.
A few more days atnd tho embryo law-makers of North Carolina
will be on their way to Raleigh to have their little fling and to earn
the privilege of putting "Hon." in front of their names for the rest
of their natural lives.
PROGRESS IN ROAI) WORK.
Very little lis-* beeu*said recently about the road work m the town
ship. There sre probably many citizens who have forgotten all about
it, ? especially tli?<se wfc?> do not have occasiou to travel over some of
the road a that have recently been built.
Wo believe that the road cominisMion would act according to the
wiehe* of the people if they would prepare a monthly statement for
publication, telling of the work that had been done and of the money
that had been expended. In tbi* way the people could keep up with
the work and have a fairly good impression of what waa being done.
Regarding tho rotuju ? we have Ten- little to say. The Market
?treet road is in bad nchapo. About the only goi>d that has apparently
beei. accomplishfxl i> widening this road and straightening out som<*
of the bends. But ah far as actual benefit is concerned.? we would
prefer to let the "other fellow" do the talking.
However, there has already been considerable mention made of the
work, and this mention has been far from favorable. The road is
full of ruta and in had weather it is almost impassable. It is very
uneaven, and is as hard on automobiles and wagons a* was the old
THE OUTLOOK FOR PEACE.
From Germany's note to President Wilson, regarding peace nego
tiations, it is evident that the prospects for peace are growing: brighter
Before very long, negotiations will probably be under way between
Germany and the a) lieu. Whether these negotiations will result in
peace, cannot be said at the present time, but the important point is
tha' a definite understanding will be arrived at and there will un
doubtedly be much good derived.
Judging from the tone of Germany's reply, she is willing to mak<
further concessions. And, judging from expressions from tihe British
people, they are not adverse to listening to what Germany has to say.
On the whole, the oat look is exceedingly encouraging and with the
assistance of the neutral nations of the world, it now appear? almost
certain that peace will be declared before next summer passes.
A SUCCESSFUL YEAK.
With the close of the present year, business and professional men
of Washington ? with hardly an exception ? have enjoyed the most
prosperous year in their history.
Business lias been good in Washington this year. Both retail and
-wholesale lines have enjoyed greater prosperity. There has also been
a larger influx of trade from the rural districts of the county and
from adjoining counties. Washington is fast becoming the trade cen
ter for this section of the State.
And in many other ways has tins been a successful year for Wash
ington. Many public imrpovements have been made, including the
repairing of streets, the building of roads, the erection of buildings
and the establishment of a number of new enterprises,
Washington is growing all the time. She is gradually finding out
what she can do and wo prophecy that the Hid of the coming year
will see even greater things accomplished than have been done this
year. The people are getting cl?*ser together. The old feeling of
factionalism while it still exists to some extent, is gradually being
wiped out. People are beginning to realize that municipal improve
ment and personal prejudice dvn't g?? hand in hand.
However, as we have just, said, there is still a large amount of this
factionalism to seen. And the strange part of it is that some of
those men, who are lined up against one another, comprise the best
educated and most successful men in qut city. It is easy to under
stand how a person without education and without any advantages
can give himself over to personal prejudice of this sort, but when
men, who are well verted in education and business, allow themselves
Uf be governed by such small passions, ? it's beyond us.
We hope that this state of affairn will l>e gradually but rapidly!
swept away and that before the end of the next year we will see
ev9 fry citizen of Washington working in full accord with his neigh
bors in making Washington the best city in the best county in the
betft state in the country.
THE CHRISTMAS TOYS.
thousands of children were delighed on Christmas through the
receipt of countless toys of all kinds. Wagons, chairs, drum<L wheel
barrows. wooden horses, dolls and many other different toys helped
to make the day one of joy and happiness for the little ones. Bnt
after a ff*w days, other things will be found to amuse the voting
minds and the Christmas toys will be tossed aside and forgotten.
There is one part about these toys that the children do noi realize
? cor their parents, either ? and that is the manufactnre of the
There are a number ef toy shops in New York City and in other
lai^e cities throughout the country, where the toys are made. For
the most part, t*iev art carved out by old men who have no other
means of making a liring and who do the work in order to get enough
to keep body snd soul together. There ia much labor on eaeh of the
toy* that the children may happily play with on Christmas day fend
the ? >a also probably mw4i hardship connected with them. But, as j
W* k eyes strain at their work and as trembling hands try to hold j
the knife steady while earring the various tors, their makers most
