Will our city fathers tell the tax payers whether the $60,00® dollars Worth of bonds voted May have be«n wld, and the price received for the same. It is said by those who claim te know what they are talking about that thei bonds have been bar gained away for a price much un der par. Infact it is said that they brought less than ninety- five cents on the dollar. We are further t6ld that the city charter provides; that they sh&fi not be sold for less than par. Let the tax payers know the net price received for the boncfe, or better still, call the citizens and tax payers ^ether and let them ratify or reject the bond sale. H it be true that the city fathers have bargained away the bonds for le^ than 95 per cent are the tax payers going to stand for it’ Now is the time to act; A w^eek or ten days may be too late. Wake up Mr. tax payey arid prote^cEi. your interest. ■ ii si IS quite a t wo our Dchi” wiii discover later the A City Beantiful. Let’s have a city beautiful, to do so it is necessary to have a clean city and a clean city nieans a healty city. So that it is all important to have all this that we get busy. Our back lots are in bad shape and the principle streets of the city looks as if the garbage wagon had turned over in each one of them, there are boxes, barrels and every conceiv able kind of trash right on the side walks in front of busmess houses. Fair time is nearly here so Itet us clean up and show the visitors that v7e have the best and cleanest town in the State. Let our town officers get busy and see that those who are re sponsible for these conditiens are warned to do better in the future. Who will be the first to start the ball to rolling.

Several poems and near poems on debt paying are going tha rounds, the following has been handed in and we pass it along for what it is worth: If by the public you would be admired, And a right spirited sense of honor you desire; Then of the poor merchant don't credit require. But cash in hand foots up the requisite desire. Remember to credit is dangei'- ously in the extreme. Hence be sure with a record of spot cash you be seen*,- Merchants troubles by the hun dreds are tallied. Thence lessen said troubles by spot cash rallied. Knowing the human heart to lie so atrociously corrupt. Thence disposing of goods on time means to merchants by millions a bankrupt; Learn to be spirited right and tempered good and pay as you go, Thus proving the ideal model to to all humanity full well you know. To beat the merchant, who worl s and studies so hard, is a damnable sin. Aspire a blessing to your country be known and this damnabl e sin never begin. If heart is right you will reluct antly attempt the heinous credit rule. But stand by and defend the greatest of all—the golden rule. Further remember that North Carolina is minus a statute at merchants command,- Thus a paramount settlement— cash down-—dispensing with credit demands. To owe your merchant, or worse merchants, and never, never pay would be a thrice awful slam, Thus to do would fix your destiny throughout eternity as not only doomed, but damned.
