a matter tluit is seldom considered as
au important factor in a town's

that business men do not generally

be convinced of the truth of it. The
local paper is very naturally biased

years ago this beautiful Indian
ULaie, that carries historical associa
lions with it, was changed to Elm
City. H is not a city at all, and the
town has not enough elms to. distin
guish it from other Eastern to!?0
The name is a misnomer, and a
change back to the euphonious and
histor;c name of Toisnofc will be a
positive gain to the State. Some
years ago the musical name of
Nahunta was changed to Fremont.
These old names preserve history,
and ought not to be changed in or
