As there are but a very few public schools in New Hanover, and aa the term is seven months, he will make several visits to each school. This is quite a novel idea. Death of Mrs. Jolia C Williams.

Death of Mrs. W. J. King. Mrs. Ihiisv King, wifeof Mr. V. J. King of Waxhaw, died last Wednes day, after an illness of sixty-three days of typhoid fever. Tbe death of this yotinjr wife and mother is par ticularly sad. She was less than SI years old, having been born January 2!l, IKHt). She was a daughter ilf Mr. and Mrs. Hobt. Austin. She was married December 24, 1WI5. Tim children survive their young mother. ne is a little girl seven years old. the others boys, live and three. The U sly was buried at Waxhaw Baptist hurt'li cemetery and the funeral was conducted by Ucv. J. L. Dennett and Kcv. . r. aUon. Mrs. King was most earnest, active and useful member of the little Baptist church at Waxhaw. She was of generous impulses and lino character, and a evmit christian. She occupied a high place in the esteem and affec tioiia of the people of Waxhaw and all who knew lier, and her loss, while irreparable hi the little children, her husliand and relatives, is also great to her community. Welr-Yarbrough. 'trreinniltnc of The Journal. A few miles from Waxhaw last Wednesday evening, Oct. Hth, in tbe handsomely decorated parlor of Mr. E. V. Varbrough's home, Miss Minnie Yarhrough and Mr. W. A. Weir of Waxhaw were uui- ted in the sacred bonds of holy matrimony. Miss Hassle Smith of Charlotte, a oousin of the bride, was maid of honor; Mr. John 1. Weir of King's Mountain, a broth er of the groom, was best man; Miss Annie (rates of Kock Hill, H. C, was brides maid, aud Mr. W. 8. Walknp of Waxhaw was grooms man. The ceremony, an imprcs sive one, was performed by Rev. J. L. Bennett of Marhhville, assist ed by Rev. W. F. Watson of Mou roe.

'Squire rWWkorter la Reminded J OU "Crowd"- The Joys a( the rkrry-Oo-Rouad Th Mouse ot Crow Has a Coat I Armi U the Indifference of Parents the Weakest Point ia tbe Public Schools of the County? The editor of tbe Luuih'rton Ar gus is a gentleman and a scholar, and also a philanthropist. Hear what he says : "The merry go-round is here and tbe children, big and little, are bar ing jolly times, mere many a nickel spent for rides, but, for our part, we do Dot think it wasted, as happy memories are ling stored against the evil day. A child's ride on oue of these dashing rhari ota or careering horses affords more genuiue pleasure than a mau sthoa sand mile railroad trip. The yearn ings of a childhood which sought satisfaction from a prancing hue handle bave not Iwen forgotten, and, if we were able, every child within tweuty miles should ride, not to satiety, but euough to give each tbe thrill and leave his fancy briniiuiug full." This is referred to Mr. Q. a Lee, mho with the writer one day last week saw the most novel of all "Hying jeuniea." Some little dar kies bad secured an old wagon wheel, put it on a stump aud were fiyiug around ou it in great shape. The usefulness of the telephone is demonstrated every day in a hun dred little wavs. Let oue who is nsed to pleuty of them go iuto a couutry where there are uone aud he misses them more than anything else. Here is one of tbe huudreds of ways in which they are useful outside of town. The other night Mr. Tom Ford of this township went up in New Salem and spent the night. Next morning his mule was gone, without having left a trace behind. He 'phoned all alHiut and gave a description of the mule. He could hear nothing whatever of it aud began to think it had been stoleu. Pretty soon a man who had taken it up rode the mule to Win gate aud there was promptly told whoso it was and where the owner could be found. 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. Messrs. Crow Bros, are now buy ing the ingredients and mixing their own fertilizers. Thus they will sell Crow brands. Aud they are crow brands, too. On every sack is the picture of a pair of coal black crows, billing nnd coo ing with each other. One of the crows is very fat, that's John; the other isu't quite so fat, that's Bob. The fearful story in this paper of the murder of bis three little inno cents bv a father made crazy by Honor is too terrible for human tongue to tell. Yet the folks who are very much opposed to the liquor t rathe which makes possible such crimes sre called "cranks." Science lays her hand upon ninny of tbe virulent diseases that have for centuries lieen considered iu curable and they vanish. We have no doubt that she will sooner or Inter find the weapons whereby to successfully do battle with nil of them. Twenty years ago medical lecturers told their students that hen their patients contracted diphtheria, they might as well no tify the undertaker at once. Ami now the disease is Handled wun comparative safety and certainty, Xow," said 'Squire Henry Me Wborter of Jackson, "when you want to get anything done in neighborhood in which all are to take hold and help, like building a church or a school house, some lei lows remind me of my old dog Crowd.' Crowd was a mighty mouthy dog but he wouldu t light Sale and True were the fighting does. Whenever Crowd saw strange dog he'd fly out after him like be was going to eat nun up. But list before getting to hi in, be d look back every time to see if Sale and True were coming on close enough to do the fighting. If they wereu't, be'd stop, lint ir they were on band, he'd fly in like any thing, and . then slip out aud let them do tbe fighting, on, you want to watch the iouthy fellows when the fight gets up." fertaineA And. in this connection.

Tu IW EJIiuratTWJuaraal: 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 abroad. 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 I here win mnmsd tpectaclea.
