NATIONAL EDITORIAL ASSOCIATION.
Visits Famous Tippecanoe Battle Ground, LaFayette, Purdue University,
Peru, the Home of the Wallace Shows, Marion "the Queen City
of Indiana," Minona, an Ideal Summer Resort.
Leaving French Lick Springs
Sunday night, we arrived at Lafay
ette early Monday morning and our
Editorial Special was taken ont to
the famous Tippecanoe battle ground
eight miles away. A sumptuous
breakfast had been prepared for us
aud was served in the Methodist
camp meeting house adjoining the
Immediately after breakfast Col.
Dellart addressed the editors and
pointed out the position of the
troops during this famous battle,
which was one of the most impor
tant in American history. By it a
powerful Indian Confederacy was
broken aud the tribes controlling it
scattered, never again to be united.
The gateway, to the great North
west was opened by it and ; Gen.
Harrison, as a result of it, became
president of the United States. At
the time of the battle, Nov. 7, 1811,
history tells us that Gen. William
Henry Harrison was in command at
Fort Yiueennes. Chief Tecumseh,
the ablest Indian warrior of his
time, went south to arrange with
tribes iu that direction tor a con
federacy of Indians against all the
white settlers in the Northwest.
He left his brother, the prophet, iu
command, who, in a conference
with Sen. Harrison, advised h'm to
rest his troops on the preseut battle
field, expiessiug at the time, friend
ship. Early the next morning a
picket discovered a crouching Indiau
in the brush near by and ftoed on
him. This began the decisive bat
tle which resulted iu the loss of 3S)
of GfU. Harrison.' men and 100
wounded. As the Wins re
removed their dead and wounued,
their loss was never known. There
are now in this battle held thirty
seven gra.es of the slain, who sleep
under the eternal skies ano" finder
che stars and bare of Old Glory.
The Tippecanoe battle field is owned
by the State of Indiana and is en
closed with a neat wire fence, but
it has no monument. There is a
movement on foot, however,, to get
the Government to acquire it and
set upon it a monument suitable to
its historic importance.
LA FA V ETTE SOLDIER'S HOME- Pl'H
The ride from the battle ground
over the "Tecumseh Trail" along
the Wariash was :i delightful one.
A short stop wis male at r lie foot
of the hill at the Soldisrs' Home.
Here Col. Dellart, in conclusion to
a short address, said, "The boys of
61 made the Union what it is today
and the sons of the veterans of 01,
both North and South, marclml
shoalder to shoulder up S.iti Juan
Hill to bui d up another republic."
Every thing is kept in perfect
order at the Soldiers' Home and the
grounds are the pride of the old St 1
diers, who are living iu the home.
Purdue University, the greatest
technical school in the country, has
190 ar-res of land, including an ex
perimental farm. It comprises sev
en distinct departments aud is con
sidered one of the best universities
in the State.

Before our train arrived at Pern,
prominent members of the Commer
cial Club boarded it and distributed
badges bearing the laconic words,
"Peru watch us grow," and from
all indications it is glowing rapidly.
There are several industries in wnicn
from twelve to fifteen hundred peo
ple are employed. Peru is one of
the oldest towns in Indiana, inere
is much wealth there and until
within the last few years, no special
effort was made to make it a place
of commercial and manufacturing
importance. The country around
Peru is exceedingly fertile ana is
great for agriculture and stock-
raising. Jferu is famed as the nonie

located in the gas belt of Indiana.
It is a hustling growing city and is
called the "Queen City of Indiana."
Business houses and residences
were decorated with the national
colors and the entire city seemed to
nave put, on noiiuay attire iu uonor
of the event. Marion is quite an
educational center. Its Normal
school ranks among the best in the
United States the college has about
700 students. We were entertained
in the chapel with addresses from
members of the faculty and mem
bers of our association. After this
che Commercial Club took charge
of us, giving a complimentary troi
ley ride oyer the city. and a banquet
at their club rooms.
Marion has three daily newspapers.
The Daily Ledger is one of the lead
ing paper3 and it has conspicuously
posted on the walls of the business
office the following quotation which
would uppeal to every one:
It's easy enough to be pleasant
When life goes by with a so.ig,
But the man worth while
Is the mm who will smile
When every thing goes dead wrong."
With a motto like this the editors
were not surprised that it had a
large circulation and was a popular
The United States Soldiers' Home
is located four miles from Marion.
It shelters several thousand old sol
diers. . Some of them are able to
work; others are too feeble and are
cared for; all are well clothed and
have plenty to eat. Besides public
buildings, there is a music stand in
the center of the grounds, where
one of the best bauds in the United
States renders music.
Seats are arranged on the carpet
of grass and peoj 1 3 from Marioa, as
well as the old soldiers, enjoy the
music in the evening shades.
Some of the members of the party
questioned the old soldiers and they
were very free to talk. One of them
said that "while there is no rule to
compel us to vote the Republican
ticket, we are expected t do it and
are provided with transportation to
go home to vote."

ASHEBORO A CENTER
This Section of the State Is Rich la
Finely Located In the Mineral Belt of
the Mate Smelting Works Would
Cauxe Industrial Awakening Small
Test Furnace Being Built.
Asheboro is on the Gold Hill
mineral belt extending N. E. and S.
W. more that . 30 miles in width
through the State, and upon which
is located many producing mines,
and many others that would increase
the States producing many million
if they could be worked. Asheboro
bus one of the best mineral locations
on the belt.
H. B. Meech, the mineral expert
and mining engineer of nuny years'
experience, understanding mineral
formations can judge by the surface
formations where the mineral gold
and copper should occur. He has
been here three weeks in the interest
of the Asheboro Copper Mining Co.
In the time Mr. Meech has examined
,Tthe surface formation for about 10
miles west aud 3 miles east of Ashe
boro. As all mineral belt forma
tions course northeast and southwest
the course of vein formations are
in the same direction. In traveling
east and west he has crossed all the
mineral formations and states that
he observed 12 mineral veins that,
would produce gold and that several,
of these, he believes, can be made to.
Also, Mr. Meech says, the hill un
der the village of Asheboro contains
three gold veins the five hills
adjoining has each as many more,
and the six mountains in sight of
Asteboro contain thousands of tons
of gold and copper ores most all
showing sulphate ores on the out
croppings. In depths these ores '
become more sulphurous smelting
ores all dormant and of no value
without smelting works. As exper
ience has proven that no other pro
cess will successfully work this ore
smelting works is a necessity in find
ing a market for the ore that the
owners may continue to operate the
mines started. Therefore, it is the
smelting works that is required to
open and develop this section.
Asheboro has a good location for
smelting works, being in the midst
of many worked mines aud many yet
to be opened, viz: The Hoover Ilill
Sawyer, Wiuuingham, Slack. Wins
low, Davis Mountain, Wilson-Kennedy,
Jones, Uwharrie, Russel, New
by, Herring, Walker, etc. These
are some working mines accessable
to Ashebno, Prospective mines
nearby are the Gray, McDonald,
Lowe, Lambert, Allred, Spencer,
Ked ding, Spoon, Hamilton. Tool,
Crowson and other prospects that
can produce sufficient ore to supply
such au enterprise. To make these
mines pay the meta's in the ores
must be extracted into bullion by
smelting. Then it is money, and
inouey pays expenses, the expenses
paid the development of the mine
can continue and the people will be
benefitted by receiving 75 per cent. ..
of the production and all business,
will be benefitted.
Now is the opportunity for Ashe-,
boro to secure one of the best, most
profitable enterprises in the State
and one that will develop the re
sources of the county. All miners
and business men should cooperate
with Mr. Me;ch ia his effort to get
those who have money to invest to
