The New York Evening l'ost in a
Tecent issue has much to .say in
jTdise of North Carolina's progress
in educational matters and of the
recent general assembly for having
voted for schools and the insane
liberally. The Post particularly
commends the Legislature for the
half million dollars appropriated for
the mental defectives, curable or in
curable; the giving of $5000.00 for
a tuberculosis ward at Morgantou,
and $15,000.0it for a state tubercu
losis sanitarium, which is to receive
Quoting the article further:
"County commissioners, by anoth
er statute, are now required to sep
arate tubercular prisoners from those
in good health in all prisons and de
tention camps. The child labor law
was strengthened by prohibiting
night work for children under four
teen, and raising the age limit to
thirteen for the illiterate. Next, a
tentative compulsory school attend
ancy law was also put on the books,
excepting, it is true some .counties,
but enabling the others to apply it
when certain that public sentiment
is ready for it. The Assembly's in
terest in the schools did not end
there. Provision was made ,for a
system of high schools for such
counties as wish them, un eastern
training school for teachers and a
school of technology along original
lines were established, while the
financial grants to the State Univer
sity and colleges were largely in
ctead. Finally, a reform school
for delinquent children, called the
Stonewall Jackson School, has been
begun, and its management placed
:n the hands ot women.
"Of course, these votes bespeak
the growing prosperity of North
Carolina, as does the increase of Con
federate pensions from $275,000 to
$4('0,i0o. But more than that,
they illustrate clearly the- great
cnane that is coming in the atti
tude of the South towards social
questions from the legislative stand
point. The old attitude of indiffer
ence is passing away, as the poverty
of reconstruction days is left behind.
The dtmand for better schools as
for better roads and better State in
stitutions, makes itself felt on every
side. At bottom, it is an economic
change, the effects of which we are
now seeing. But the developing of
the State's great natural resources is
not wnolly responsible, much as that
has helped. It is, in a way, a relies
of better conditions elsewhere, and
of the generally incensing humanita
rianisn) of our times. The teachers
and traveled people of North Caro
lina and its neighboring States are
not willing that their communities
should lag behind. Hence this sur
prisingly liberal programme of North
Carolina, which is bound to be imi
tated elsewhere in the outh. It is
; true that the chain-gang still sur
vives, and other anachronisms; but
' the present tendency cannot be over
come, and it means sooner or later
the arrival of a new and a broader
This article is in striking con
trast with the bitter Republican
partisan news-papers of this State.
WE SHOULD RAISE OUR OWN
BEEF AND HORSFS.
Only a few days ago a gentleman
in Asheboro went into a beef market
and purchased a piece of beef pay
ing fifteen cents a pound. It was
western beef. On'his way home he
looked on each side of the road and
saw many acres of clover and nat
ural grasses in a pasture and not a
cow or colt in the pasture. In a
few weeks, or months at least, these
grasses will die without being of
service. We know another gentle
man who came to town from the
wintry and purchased a piece of
beef to take home to his family a
ehort distance in the country. On
his way home he saw on each side of
the public read many hundred acres
of lands where the large timber had
been cut off. On this were luxuri
ant natural grasses from knee bigh
to waist high. A wire fence to en
close it is all .that is necessary to
make it most useful for grazing
purposes. Why farmers and land
owners do not convert more of their
lands into pastures we do not know.
We should be glad to see our farm
ers throughout this section begin to
take interest in stock raising. No
other section is so well suited to it.
