Mr. Tom Ford of this township

He could hear nothing whatever of

taken it up rode the mule to Win

whoso it was and where the owner

What do yon consider the weak
est point in the public schools of
l nion countvT was one of the
questions asked the public school
teachers at the examination week
before hist. What do you suppose
was the auswert Almost in every
case it was this: "lndilTcrcuce of
the parents." This would make it
appear that there is yet need
of educational campaigning. The
teachers answered correctly. It
isn't poor school houses, nor poor
teachers, nor poor salaries, nor
short terms it's the indifference
of the parents. If the parents were
thoroughly aroused the other diffi
culties would vanish.

The w riter of this article d.-s not
cxiect to impart auy new informa
tion. He is not setting up to be a
mentor for the city of Mroror any
bodv. The object is merely to nn
press a few facts that are patent to
the most unobservant (Mind results
are oftentimes secure I by persistent
agitation for improvement and no
progress can be tlie result of neglect
ed opportunities. This is espn-ially
true, under modern conditions, in the
matter of building a city of much
stability and in preanng its ieople
to meet the vicissitudes of the future.
It is iv4 presumptuous, therefore.
for any citizen having the good of
his town at heart to call public at
tention to existing conditions with a
view to their amelioration or better
ment. With this end in view, let us
make an inventory of what we have
and what we ssrially med in order
to keep abreast of the times.
The growth of Monroe has never
urn of the mushroom vanetv, and it
is well that it has ueen so. There is
nothing so pitiful in business life as
holies blasted and fortunes wrecked
as a result of investments upon false
pretenses or lictitmus values. No,
there has never been a time when a
business here might not prove to
some extent remunerative II jinn
ciously managed, and there has never
been a tune w hen real estate values
suddenly tiartook of the nature so
common in mushroom towns, (in
the contrary, the tendency of the val
ues of desirable real estate here has
always been upward, and no one has
ever found it moonshine onlv or a
wilUV-thi-wisp. True, progress has
not been so remarkable as may lie
tiointcd out in other places, and there
mav be some woefully disapKiiuh'd
tKMplc here, but the lulu's of the
visionary are ever tltvting- while the
fact remains that much has already
been accomplished. How much? It
is often said that the progress of a
people should lie judged by their
public buildings. If that be a safe
criterion, Monroe can defy compari
son with other places of similar en
vironment. Look at her imposing
court house and safely constructed
jail; examine her Kiver house; visit
her splendid graded schools; see how
she cares for her helpless jieople at
the county home, and note well what
has been done in the matter of
liiirches. And after you are satis-
lied that the needs of the future, as
well as the present, have been kept
in view in the const met ion of public
buildings, then you may follow the
thoroughfares to see what a vast
amount of work has been accom
plished ill the building of public
mads. So also, the ieople for the
most part have comfortable and at
tractive homes. Indeed, and in short,
when a citizen of this town travels
abroad and carefully notes the con
ditions existing elsewhere, he comes
back better satished with his abid
ing place than theretofore and con
gratulating himself upon the fact
that his lines have fallen in such a
pleasant little ritv. Notwithstand
ing, however, all tliat has Urn ac
complished in the past and all we
njoy in the present, this article was
inspired not irom a sense oi scii-
coniplacency and all-sulliciency, but
to sound a note of warning hi those
who have invested their money here
and expect to reap a reasonable de
gree of profit as n result of their
confidence. In view of the fact that
many small towns in the territory
contiguous to Monroe have lately
sprung up as marts of trade ; and
when we recognize the fact that
another large slice of country across
the border in South Carolina is soon
to be taken awav, in the matter of
custom, by the advent of a railroad
through that section, I say it can but
lie clear to the most unobservant
that the time has come when efforts,
and strenuous efforts, should be put
forth to devise ways and means for
making the city more self-sustaining.
Unlike zealous Concord and (ias
tonia, we must remember, too, that
we are restricted iu our oiterations as
a trading centre by the powerful In
tluence of our neighlsir, Charlotte;
and fur own benefit we should
adopt the policy that has been pur
sued in that city. Charlotte is not
now much dependent on what is
called the "wagon trade." Her daily
receipt of cotton, for instance, from
wagons are even less than ours, and
vet that city giies forward in .popula
tion and resources by leaps and
bounds, while we go along as if by
necessity and with a very measured
tread. Now, the wonderful growth
of Charlotte in the last decade, the
fact that she i9 already referred to as
the "Queen City of North Carolina"
and the "Pearl of the Piedmont,"
may be traced to a realization by her
people that the city should be self
sustaining. Having come to that
conclusion, they put aside all petty
jealousies and united, as wide-awake
patriotic men should always do, not
only in making their own money ef
fective, but in inviting capital from
i They have succeeded, and that is t
lesson which we must learn if we
would progress or even, hold to that
which we have.
Now. do von ask for 1 practical
suggestion ? Well, the city has been
generous in siending money in some
respects ; it could do no better than,
as many times privately suggested,
to employ a first class business man
to keep in touch with capitalists
