TCoosen Do you want to see a wave of prosperity strike this community and push everything along in front of it? Then open your wallet and loosen up! . Don't content yourself with telling the other fellow to do it, but do it yourself. Imagination plays a mighty big part in our schemc ' of life, and to a very large extent we have been afflicted in late months with an aggravated case of imaginitis. Some one got out in the street and yelped "hard , times," and immediately the cry was taken up and hand ed from lip to lip until it really began to assume a semb lance of truth. ' ? And then everybody commenced lo tighten the < strings lo their'purees; pennies and dollars were herded and withdrawn from circulation; buying lagged, and - ap prehensiori stalked abroad. t People imagined we were in the midst of bard times. The fact that the community held just as much money as ever before was entirely overlooked. ; The fact that exports, with the possible exception of cotton in EQuthcrn states, was as heavy as before was also v forgotten. Money continued to come into the community from . outside sources, but it was promptly hidden away instead of being placed in circulation through the usual business channels. Pessimists barked on every corner, calamity bowlers were in their element, and even sane men commenced to . ? iwafty.- . - v' / And all because some fellow opened his mouth and yelled "hard times'" But let's put an end to the farce. Let's do our spring buying early? let's do much of it now? let's pull our money out of it's hiding places and put it to work where it will be of use to ourselves and to the community. j. And let's; buy our goods from Our home merchant^ from those who have borne the brunt of the so-called hard times? from people we know and whom we know i we can trust. . Let's trc-l out Old Man Prosperity and give him the front seat, and then let's all go to wdrk and keep him there. * . . Imagination has been worked to n frazzle. Now let's have a dose of common sense, and the . imaginary malady will soon cease ,to exist. LET'S LOOSEN UP. t.

Over All Contract Relations Under $500, Suits Under $200 And in Criminal Cases All Misdeameanors Are Ipduded. The bill allowing a recorder's court for Pitt county was passed by the General Assembly a short time before adjournment was taken /Saturday. When it was first proposed to establish a recorder's court for this county, opposition began to , develop which for a time threatened to delay or defeat the introduction of the bill. The bill which was introduced some time ego by Representative -Lpughingbouse passed successfully the required readings in both houses and is now a law. Although the bill has not been published The Reflector learns that it provides for a court every Monday to set until all cas& are disposed of. Its scope includes final jurisdiction in cases involv ing contractual relations where the sum does not exceed $300; in suits atad other civil cases not contractual matters not exceed ing $200 are wilhiu its juris diction; in criminal matters the court will have jurisdiction over all misdemeanors. Cases will be sent to this court upon appeal from the magistrates and not to the Superior court as hereto fore. The officers of the court will include a presiding, officer or recorder, a couuly prosecutor and a clcrk. The recorder as well as the prosecutor will be elected by the courty com missioners for the fir& term of office. Upon the expiration of their term of office these officer's are to be filled by election as other officers by the people. The clerk of the Superior court will be clerk of the recorder's court. It is not known at present ju& when the. court will be estab lished but it will not be long delayed. As the main reason in securing a recorder's court is to reducc the work of the Super ior court this court will be cs tnblished as soon as possible.? Greenville Reflector. R. F. n.
