Good Prospects for a Big Enterprise Mere.
China Grove has advantages
over most of the big cities in the
State ' whioh are becoxn iog
known to the wide awake
men of affairs here and else
where. In view of this faot a
big manufaotaring concern is con
sidering the advisability of estab
lishing a branch factory here at i
an early date. We would call at
tention to the phrase used, above
aact stress tie 'Boint that Ohma
Grove is the place beiiLg consider
ed. It is not merely t he consid
eration and advisability oi estab
lishing a branch fact iory some
where, but at China Grove. Of
course there are nutner ous other
points that might answe r the pur
poses desired, even soaae of the
places with booster clu bs, but as
intelligent men have long since
learned that boosting is one thing
and merit is something entirely
different, China Grove stands a
fine ohance of getting th e propos
This town, like many other
gcod towns, is short on 'boosting,
but has a long suit on meitit, and,
of course, will be in the winning
while many of th bone .rattlers
will be left high and dry on the
beach pumping a fog horn in fair
weather. The parties who. have
the matter in charge have had
offers from the. bigger towns of a
site and other assistance, bat ach
things, r thotngh valanble, cannot
overcome the merits of China
Grove, therefore are given little
consideration. The only thing
that seems necessary ou the part
of this oommnmty to get the fac
tory is to tote fair, don't try to
gouge and insist on unreasonable
conditions just b-ecause the oppor
sunny presents itself. Bucn a
course will most surely drive
away the enterprise, be of no
profit to any on e or the commu
nity alid be a lasting blow that
we can ill afford to sustain .
We hope to gi ve a fuller report
on the subject at an early date.
