The Asneboro Courier PE1CEOXK DULLAIi A VEAU Wm. C. HAMMER, Editor. 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 $5000.00 annually. 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 South." 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. At the regular term of McDoweU county Superior court just adjourn ed, Jndge O. S. Fergnson passed sentences npon def undants aggregat ing 200 years. The article entitled, "The Fun damental Principle of Successful Business," published in the last is sue ot The Courier and not duly credited was an address delivered by Mr. Ashley Home, at the Mer chants Association recently held in Greensboro. The July number of Uncle lit -, um's Magazine is an excellent issue of a high-class publication. It is I published in Atlanta by the Sunny J South Publishing Company, at one! dollar a year, aud is well worth it. j GRETNA GREEN. Pretty Little Romance Terminated in Happy Marriage.
