COM: Mr. Edi the Sundri which cel Bajitist county. “The Bee,” of Washington, D. C. W. Calvin Chase, editor, says: “There should be a law passed by ihe southern legis latures to make all idle people work and those who are caught upon the public streets hang ing around bar rooms without visible means of support should be sent to the chain gang There is some kind of work for everybody to do. There is no cause to have idlers or loafers in any com munity.” We think “The Bee” is right, for this is a question that should interest the people of this entire Western Hemis phere. The wails that are heard from widows and orphans and suffering human ity generally, on account of the direful efforts of the drink habit, is enough to startle the sun and moon. Energy and Push Will Succeed. We cannot forbear speaking a w'ord in commendation of Warrenton’s successful livery man, Mr. John S. Plummer. He is well known, es^iecially in Warren, Halifax and Vhnee counties, as a wide- awake, hustling business man, i full of enterprise, x>ush a progress, who Knows no.,*' word as fail. Mr. Plumme' the best known liveryman traveling salesmen in Eastern ! North Carolina. His teams | consist of the best i horses, as fine carriages and buggies as the market affords. I Presented He has recently built a fine' P^^t livery stable at Norlina p] Junction, -where he keejis the ! best teams and polite drivers | He is prepared to serve the j rocks public at short notice, either worlil from Warrentoton or Norlina Junction, and the best at service guaranteed—he can be reached by wire or phone from every section of the State. [JATED. xYe attended Convention coloied j)eople the value of civility and obedience. Their conduct and deportment at public gatherings, especially at the closing exercises of Shiloh Institute, was anything but creditable to young peox>le who have had such superior- advantages as those in and around Warrenton. Parents of that vicinity should feel that there is gross negligence somewhere in the training of their children. Is it in the homes, around the fireside, where the greatest reponsibility rest, or is it in the schools and churches? It is high time a remedy was found, or the cancer will become incurable.
