Mr. James Meadows and Mr.
C. Reece Meadows are getting
their moving picture show under
way and expect to be in opera
tion in a few days. It will be
known as the Meadows Amuse
Mr. L. Reece Meadows, who
has been traveling for the past
ten years, returned home a few
weeks ago. He says that Stokes
county has changed wonderfully
in the past ten years, and that
the people have changed lots,
but no sooner had he got off the
train at Walnut Cove and started
home than he found he was back
in old Stokes by its roads, for the
mud holes he left here ten years
ago were just as bad when he
came back, and he thinks they
are the same ones. He says that
everybody ought to be for good
roads, and that the man that is
against good roads is very much
like a little puppy before it is
nine days old. They just haven't
got their eyes open yet. They
ought to open their eyes and
look about them and see what is
going on and figure for them
selves what they are losing ev
ery year by having to worry and
pull their stock to death in the
mud. He savs he can't vote in
the good roads election but he
expects to die barking at the
hole or have good roads regard
less of who is against them.

BUGGY IS INJURED
Correspondent Takes This Occa
sion To Discuss the Bond Is
sue and Bad Roads.
King Route 2, March 24.
Mr. T. B. Smith and your cor
respondent were in Danbury last
Saturday attending the meeting
of the Farme»s' Union. Mr.
Smith was accompanied by Dr.
J. W. Slate on his return home,
and as they were coming down
one of those steep hills about a
mile and a half from Danbury,
the latch of the breast-tree broke
and let the buggy pole drop to
the ground, frightening the team
and causing them to run away.
Dr. Slr.te, beina young and active,
leaped from the buggy but hurt
his hand when he fell. Mr.
Smith, not Leing so active, de
cided to remain in the buggy and
risk the consequences. The
writer, accompanied hy his son,
was about 400 yards in front of
thorn, and hearing an unusual
r.oiso looked back and saw the
frightened team coming. The
road was too narrow for the team
to pass so it was fight or die. I
drew my whip and went to meet
the frightened team, causing
them to stop, and thus probably
saving the life of Mr. T. B. Smith.
The damage to the vehicle was
about $15.00. Mr. Smith says
he is in favor of the bond issue
for good roads as this damage
would have paid his taxes for 2
years or more.
We think that if Mr. Oliver
could be in a few wrecks like
this he would stop writing such
long-winded artie'es against good
roads and go to the election and
vote for the bond issue. Ac
cording to nature Mr. Oliver in
the near future expects to go to
a country where the roads have
been made smooth for him. and
when he is walking the streets
of the New Jerusalem and looks
back here and sees us tugging
through the mud he will surely
say : "If I had my time to live
over I would help my fellow citi
zens get out of the mud and help
them build passable roads." I
said in a former letter that when
you touch a man's pocketbook you
touch his heart, but God has
placed us in this rough country
and has given us the means to
make smooth roads and if we
don't do it we fail to discharge
Ministers should not bow to
the God of this world, to-wit :
Laying up treasures on earth.
Holy writ tells us that the rich
shall weep and howl for the mis
ery that shall come upon them.
James 5:1. It also says they
have heaped up treasures for the
last days. James 5:3. By turning
to Ezekiel 7:19 we road: They
shall cast their silver in the
streets, and thei»- gold shall be
removed. This shows that the
roads are to receive a proper
amount of money.
It seems from the brother's
letter that the "body of de-th"
j would be a great misfortune to
| the surviving generations. This
1 bridgs to mind an only son of
| his who is now in another State
in business. The attractions of
farm, farm life, roads, etc., are
not able to induce him to stay in
Stokes. Then why should the
bond issue be such a burden to
the brother when his children
are not much interested in the
treasures he has laid up for them?
