Monday was a busy day at the
three projects which all Roxboro are
so much interested in, namely, the
swimming pool, gym at the high
school and the community building.
The snow Tuesday put a temporray

what it was all about, but there was
no occasion for wonderment. The
Democratic County executive com- ?

the purpose of recommending a

at Roxboro, and all of the candi

GARDLESS OF FIRE
The Park Street office of the Nor-1
folkrjind Western. Railway at Roa
noke was recently destroyed by fire.
The morning after the conflagra
tion several of the "homeless' office
workers wandered into what had
been the office of W. O. Franklin,
superintendent of the Radford di
I vision. They found the room gut
ted and blackened by fire, papers,
, furniture, etc., destroyed. In this
melancholy atmosphere the visitors
heard a familiar tick-tock, tick

and blistered wall hung the ancient
office clock, calmly ticking off the

piece has done yeoman's service.

IS LITTLE PROFIT
Grazing on woodlands Is harm

In wooded tracts, cattle waste
their energy and reduce their body

for grass . And at the same time
they prevent young saplings from
growing up to renew the older trees
that either die out or are eut off
for wood or lumber.
Unrestricted grazing also damages
timber already standing and is bad
on the soil. Timber growth is slow
ed, the quality of the timber low

and much timber that would other
wise be good has to be discarded
when the trees are cut for market.
Cattle relish the foliage of white
ash, sugar, maple, yellow poplar, elm,
bass wood, white oak. red oak. shell
bark hickory, and other of the more
valuable timbers. The result is that
the animals browse off the saplings
before they can grow to any ap
preciable size. Other saplings that
are not eaten are liable to be

Gold of Understanding
Requires no Crucible
It would be reasonable to suppose
that those who had worked their
way. slowly and ? tediously, from the
bottom to the topmost rung in the
ladder, would have a broader and
more sympathetic consideration for
others who find the climb painful,
than him who has been hoisted to
the top by fortuitious circumstances.
Yet by some curious quirk of hu
man nature, it does not generally
work out that way.
In the Industries when one has
risen from offlce boy to manager or
from the lathe to superintendent
of works, if he does not malnfest a
sort of intolerance for his fellows,
he is an exception to the rule. Count
them on your fingers and see.
Herbert Hoover, for Instance, is
frequently referred to as a self-made
man who fought his way through
difficulties that are the common lot
of those who toll. He was success
ful In amassing comfortable wealth,
and was favored with political pre
ferment. It would not, perhaps, be
fair to say that he Is or was Intol
erant of his fellows, but certainly
his Interest In the common herd
does not measure up to that of his
successor to the presidency.
President Roosevelt is by birth,
training and tradition an arisocrat.
It is not related that work and
worry were his lot. Yet as the days
move on there is Increasing evidence
of his interest In and sympathy for
the man who toils. That he Is sin-!
cere In his loyalty to the "forgotten
man" goes without question. From
many different angles he has proved
his understanding concern In the
problems of the little man, and
through the warp and woof of his
administrative career so far, is seen
the thread of his sympathetic de
termination to lighten his load.
It would seem that great crusa
ders for any cause would be bol
stered by personal experience in its
trials, but this is not always so.?
