Mount Airy News. jl b. joauaon * son. ri 11 Mi—t Airy. !». C, Jaiy 11th. l»t* Thrre la nothing new to toll about the war. It la a period of preparation far our iMa, and rapidly tha warli at gatting ready la going forward. In tha Maantlma fjermany t» evidently fat tin* raady for anotliar fraat effort aurh aa aha made noma weeka ago, and aorh aa aha haa been making alnca Marrh 21at. No great battle haj haan fought now for aaveral daya and comparative quiet la along all tha linen. Tha auppaettion la that tha Germane will renew tha fight in a big way before murh longer. The country is maiding ships and making praparttiona in • way to astonish the world. Wa nwdad ;hipa, am) wa ara buili'lrg hig ocean /oing steamers In 40 days that, before tha war, required two yaara to build. Wa ara doing things in such a larga and rapid way aa to maka it almost un believable that aurh la poaaibla. In tha meantime Germany ia dreaa frng up h«r officers in American uni forms and sanding them among our arm ian to deceive our soldiers. Of course they uaa only thoaa officers who ran apeak English. Thia trick worked to perfection with the Italians bat it is not working much to the benefit of Germany for the officer gets his passport to another country as soon aa he is caught by the Ameri cana. It appears that Germany ia ao disponed to resort to trickery that she is not believed about anything, and the general disposition to discredit a German and brand him with a lack of honor will be his heritage for a cen tury to come. A peace treaty will not restore it. ENFORCING THE LAW. In this age of the development of the race the court* and the law, with all ita machinery, appear* to be a nec essity. Some judge* no dispose of cases that come before them a* to make their court appear to be worth less to society, while other judges can impress the be3t element of the people that they can be of real benefit to the country in the suppressing of lawless ness In this connection it <■ In place to say that Mr. A. E. Tillcy, Judge of the Recorder's Court in this city, is mak ing an officer who is a credit to the State. His decisions are not icvere, and yet they carry weight that has influence on the community. He con ducts his court in a way to impress one that there is a dignity and im portance connected with it that does not usually surround the ordinary Magistrate's court where a penny and the coust is the rule for the disposi tion of all cases alike, be they trivial or severe. Take the case, for instance, this week where some young men were be fore hte Recorder's Court for violating the State laws as to driving an auto mobile. Now the rule has been in many courts to make it a penny and the cost and a suggestion to be more careful. All of which is known to not be worth a whit to society in the way of remedying thi3 prevalent and growing evil. Judge Tillcy taxed them with the cost of the action and sus pended the license of the young men for a period of thirty days. Now com pare that disposition of »he case with the usual penny and the cost. A penny and the rout makes a young fellow iimile at the expense of (he court, for what does he care for a penny and the cost? It is very well known that Jii> sentence does not bet ter conditions. But to stop a man from driving his machine for a whole U'rm of thirty days, right here in the best time for driving, is very much calculated to make him think of the laws when he again is allowed the use «. ' l>< public highways. /. I since Judge Tilley has shown hi disposition to handle these speed violations as he docs U might not be • bait idea if citisens In the future would have rases of violation made returnable before bis court. goada far year* tr< mw turning t. other Unw at i ia true at other Tha merchant la the jpMn ago want north and bought gooda ea tint*, al mMt ruusiAf th# iitU hiimlf when ha could pay. It waa not uncommon to buy gooda on *ix montha' ttn, and tluin |vt Um lint •xltndtd bill run* due. Now all thia la i ad, and in many inatancaa the eaah muat ba paid at tha lima tha food* ara bought. Thia ia aaparially trua of grocariae. Tha tandaney of tha buai naaa world ii to cut tha Una for pay mint to a raah baaia Thia wilt maan that tha r stall ma reliant will la turn want tha raah whan ha aalla hia gooda to tha ronsuawr, at laaat ha will ax pact prompt paymant that ha may maat hia billa. Aa a pointer to tha changaa that ara coming about tha farmar who bring* hia agga to town now muat aall tham to a man who haa a littla dark apace wmawhara about hia plica whara ha can eandla every agg. Thia maana tliat no mora bad eggi will ba aoid on tha market. No retail merchant haa tha right now to buy and aall agga unleaa ha praparaa to eandla tham, or buy* tham from noma reliable daalar who ha* candled them. One whole Hale houae bare haa already found that aome farmer* hava bean aelling had |*egga in uch qiantitia* aa to ba notice able. Ona man waa able to gat credit for juat four agg* out of two and half dozen. All tha other* ware bad whan the light waa. turned on in tha littla ■lark room. It ia now known that many people even go ao far aa to bring to market all egg* that fail to hatch, and alao bring along tha neat ' egg that ha* done duty for half the | year. All thu; ia now at an end, and | the public will in the future protect itaelf from *uch bad buainaaa method*. Another ruling that i« far reaching i* that of requiring full car shipment*. In the paat • produce dealer could aell half a car of produce to a conaumer in a small town. Now he muat make a I full car shipment. Thia will have I much to do with increasing the effi ' oiency of the railroad* for doing buai n«n, but wilt make it hard on the re tailer who ha* been able to get a half car *hipment when it wu not prac | tical for him to retail large amounta. Those are only pointer* to the fact that the alipt.hod method* of doing bu*inea* are not to be tolerated now that the country ia at War. Efficiency itt the demand now, and the man who ia not efficient i* not going to b« able to meet the demand* of government \ inspector* who are *ent out to see that the laws of the country are obeyed. The country ia full of professional men who fleece the people on every hand, and the day ia not far distant when these so called apecialiat* will not be allowed to enrich themselves at the expense of the people. Good business ia K^ing to' demand that equity lie the rule of action in all line:: of business from the man who brings a basket of eggs to town to the man who can draw his check for thousand*. MR. THOMAS FAWCETT. The people of this section will not allow Mr. Thomas Fawcett to retire from business if he wants to. While he is able to retire and possibly will ing, he is too artive and too valuable a man to be let alone. The people call on him for his good judgment and opinion constantly and, in one way or another, keep him busy. Now he has consented to be a candidate for County Commissioner this fall and so many have urged him to accept the nomi nation that he will allow his name to go !>efore the convention. Mr. S. A. llmnis carried a party of young people from this city to visit Camp Jackson last Friday Those makii<g up the party were Mi.'sea [>ella Johnson, Marjorie Sum ner and Thelma Ilennis and Mr. Henry Johnson. Some of these young people are relatives of Messrs. Joseph and Jan. II. Johnson who are in train ing there. tkm •*» buinad ttaaif out at malarial it 4» »tr od tha drug atora of Dr. Htaoa, tha Baptiat (hutch and tha rmidma of Mr. ■. C. Law«ilyn. The proper* y destroyed «u mm of th. hMt In lh< town at Dofceon. Tfc* raeidanea, atore and hotel of Mr. Norman was practical! y >w* and ral uable property. Mr. Norman had no insurance and tha loaa falls heavily on him. In thia ronnactlon he desires ua to thank the people for their aid In trying to save hie property and for the many expressions of aympathy. aa well aa more nubstantial aid, that ha. Seen given him. He will build hark hia hotel and store at once. The drum from the atore of Dr. Stone were aaved, hot the building, such of It aa eould'hurn, waa an en tire loaa. The Baptlat rhurrh which waa a brick building waa completely de stroyed, not even the bene Ilea or tha organ being aaved. They had I MX).00 inaurance on the building. The raaidence of Mr. R. C. Lewellyn waa the laat to burn of the deatroyad property, and moat of hia house fur niture wsa aaved. He had a splendid new two story dwelling of eight or more rooma and only $2,000.00 incur anca. At one time K appeared aa if tha lire would spread and destroy much other property. Some thoughtful peraon phoned to thia city and wanted the Are truck to come over and aid them in lighting the Are, for they thought the Are trui» could uae the water stored in the big tank in the new rourthouae. Knowing that the water aupply waa ffoubtfnl the ftre company started to Dobaon, thinking that the chemical apparatua might aid wme, of the water could not be had to pump. On the way to Dobaon a citi zen on hia wagon refused to give an inch of the road and continued on in the even tenor of hia way keeping strictly to the middle of the road, to aay the firemen. They blew the horn and rang the bell, and vet he declined 14 five an inch. It ao happened that an open npare waa by the road at that point, ami it appeared to the driver of the truck that he could paaa the wagon, but as bad luck would have it the ground by the aide of the road proved to be soft end the heavy truck sunk down and thus caused the rear wheels to ikid into the ditch. Aa bad luck would further have it the truck stopped exactly against a tele phone poet which had to be chopped down before an effort could be made to get out of the ditch. Once the poet was out of the way the drive chain of the trick -nught against the stump and broke. By the time the chain could be Sxc-i it was too late tc aid in the (Ire, for it had burned it 'elf tut. Some of the firemen say that the citizen gave as his reason for not giv ng any of the road th« excuse that he tii'.iight some ye.tr.g m.M were out having a joy ride. It is the opinion that but for this accident the truck and fire company would have reached DoSson in time lo *avo 'he re«ide-,i: of M.\ l_ewe'. lyn. • vc. - There were those here at Mount Airy who thought it unwise to send) the Fire company and truck out of town. Down at Greensboro it ia the custom to call the fire department to come out into the country many milea away to aid in fighting a fire. The truck owned by the town ia supposed to go anywhere an automobile* can go, and get there even quicker than an automobile. The machine ia heavy and of course will mire down in soft dirt. But if it ia given a road way and a clear way.it will get there. Of course the pumping arrangement would be worthless with no supply of water, but the chemicala will aid in many fires. Mr. Walter Mabe and Mias Liixie Pike were united in marriage at the home of Esq. C. W. Vaughn on route 2 recently, E»q. Vaughn performing the marriage ceremony.
