RANDOLPH COUNTY SCHOOLS COMMENCEMENT
DR. CLARENCE POE COMING TO
Friday, April 2, 1915, should be one of the red letter days in the history
of Randolph county. This is the day on which the second annual County Com
mencement for Randolph will be held, and it is hoped that Asheboro will see
one of the biggest crowds of men, women, boys, and girls ever coming to
gether in this town at one time. ,
The address by Dr. Clarence Poe will be well worth coming to hear if
there were nothing else happening; and if all the interesting and valuable
futures are considered, it will be seen that no Randolph citizen, young or old,
can afford to miss spending the day in Asheboro.
Clarence Poe is acknowledged by all to be one of the foremost North
Carolinians of the present day. He is editor of the Progressive Farmer, the
leading farm paper in this and several other Southern states, and his reputa
tion as an orator is well known. It is a remarkable fact that Clarence Poe

I write this time of what 1 saw
while at the home of my brother, J. M
Owen, Sr. I. remained there abount
one month. -
The land in .Brown county is very
rich, except on the hills and little
mountains, and -there it is not good for
much but graiing. These hills look
as if they were made of fiat rocks
and layers of dirt. The grass grows
just tne same, and those bushes,
never saw anything like them. I saw
on one mountain thirteen different
kinds. of stickers, and some of them
looked as if they would be dangerous

ten dollar grade that they ride with a
forty dollar saddle and a spine on each
heel of .the shoe. But they do work
with these horses and feed by pastur
ing. I saw men plowing with four
horses hitched to a disk plow, and I
fully believe they were plowing two
inches deep and no deeper. They say
it will not do to plow that land deep,
I thought it was the ten dollar pony
it did pay to do deep plowing with.
The valley land is black or choco
late; the latter being the best for all
purposes, but the other the richer.
On the black land, grows the mukeet
timber, and now and then a patch of
live oaks and some post oaks along

use any fertilizer or manure. The
latter lies in the pens or stable (they
don't use many stables) tin it gets in

I crossed the Peros and Arizona

a drink from that would come back

merce, Greensboro, N. C, by Mr. J. D.
Ross, secretary of the Randolph Club:
The Chamber of Commerce of
Greensboro has decided to take c
'Get Acquainted" trip once a month
during the year 1915 to some neigh
boring city. Our first trip was to Mt.
Airy in February, which proved to be
a very enjoyable and instructive occa
sion. We want to come to Asheboro on
the 26th of this month, and would be
very glad indeed if you could arrange
to have a number of your representa
tive business men meet us and provide
a place where we might exchange
The object of these trips is many
sided, one is to attract favorable at
tention to Greensboro, another is to
get our local business people better
acquainted wtth each otner, and an
other is to educate them to the re
sources of - neighboring communities
and cities, the most important being
to create, if possible, a feeling of co
operation between Greensboro, and
those cities which we visit.
We want you to know us better,
and we want to know you better in or
der -that we may co-operate in any
way we can to build up our state,
which in turn will result in building
up both Asheboro and Greensboro.
Hoping to receive a prompt reply
advising that we will be welcome,
and assuring you it would accord me
great pleasura to serve you any time
from this end cr the line, l remain.

CLARK ON WILSON
ONE OF FIVE GREATEST NATION
HAS EVER HAD CONGRESS
HAS "FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT"
Speaker Clark. addressing the
Friendly Sons of St Patrick at Phil
adelphia, last week, eulogized Presi
dent wnson as "among the great
Presidents whose names can be count
ed on the fingers of one hand."
the Congress has done its work,
he -said, "Senators and Representa
tives have returned to their homes.
The President remains in Washington
because of the ticklish situation in
which we find ourselves by reason of
the trans-Atlantic war and the civil
war. It is no exaggeration to say
that he bears a heavier load than any
President since Lincoln has borne.
No man, no men, can relieve hint o1
his burden. His troubles, being pure
ly executive, in character, are his and
his alone. In the very nature of
things he knows more about what is
going on abroad than does any other
man in America, because he has bet
ter means of information.
Every good citizen, without ref
erence to politics or religion, should
trust him and uphold him in this
crisis of our country's fate. May God
give him the wisdom, courage and
strength to keep us out of entangle
ments with foreign Nations and lead
us in the paths of peace.
"When the Democrats came mte
possession of the House, the Senate
and the Presidency on March 4, 1918,
after sixteen years of entire exclusion
from power, we had a colossal task
ahead of us. Looking the whole
world in the face, we can truthfully
and without fear of successful contra
diction assert that we have courage
ously, wisely and patriotically accom
plished the major portion of that stu
"The Baltimore platform contained
a multitude of promises. We have re
deemed many of them. While neither
a prophet nor the son of a prophet, I
make bold to predict that in the next
two years we will redeem the remain
der. Rome was not built in a day, but
nevertheless Rome was built Tw
years were not enough ttme in which
to place our extensive and patriot
programme upon the statute books,
though the 63rd Congress sat mors
days and enacted more constructive
legislation than any other that ever
met. I have not even the shadow sf
a doubt that the historian of our time
will pronounce it a great Congress..
We f 'I'ght a gopd . f ijirht. We have
kept the faith. The people will es
dorse and reward us. 1
"The brilliant Benjamin Diarali
Earl of Beaconsfield,declared that con
temporaneous foreign opinion as to a
public man is identical with the final
verdict of history. Most assuredly,
then, Woodrow Wilson will be rated
among the great Presidents whose
names can be counted on the fingers
pf ope hand.
"For more than a half century Re
publicans have 'pointed with pride'
and Democrats have 'viewed with
alarm," the Speaker went on. "Now
the boot is on the other foot. At pres
ent the Democrats 'point with pride,'
and alack! and alas! Republicans
'view with alarm'. They were fore
ordained and predestined to dwell ia
the cave of Adullam.
"These complainants divide them
selves into two classes: First, those
who with countenances sorrowful as
that of the Knight de La Mancha but
with glee in their souls and hone in
their hearts vociferate, purely for po
litical effect, that the country is going
to "The demnition bow wows.' In their
case the wish is father to Uie thought
Thero are not manv such un-American
residents in this country so favored by
Almighty God. But the few malig
nants are unfortunately among the
noisiest of mankind. The second class,
suffering from the mulagrubs, is much
larger, consisting of honest but timid
Persons forever seeing ghosts, who in
at years look forward fearfully to
ftossible lean years and who are great
y worried by the lamentations of the
Cassandras and marplots aforemen

how) that the country is going to the
dogs and scare people out of their
wits, thereby retarding progress ,
"We are proud of our record in the
C3rd Congress. Of court there are
those who carp a4 criticise and
growl. God must have made pessin
iets for some wise purpose, but their
pestiferous existence demonstrates
once more that God moves in a mis
terious way his wonders to perform.
"Prior to the time when we had the
opportunity of doing things it was
constantly asserted that we could and
would do nothing. Now our friends,
the enemy, solemnly asservate that
we are ruining the country by doing
too much. Certainly sons folks are
bard to pleasa."
