culture in all the South. The high
praise that be ave this county in
saying that it was the most progmt
sive farming oiniiiiuinly in the
Slate is ileitervetl, we lielieve, ami
it is highly appreciated This tl-s
not neeetssarily meau that our land
is the richerit or that we are at
preseut making the biggest crops.
It does mean, however, more than
this. It means that the people here
are giving more real study to the
business and are more eager to
learn and to adopt those methods
and improvements that tend tn ele
vate the calling, make the business
more profitable and to make coun
try life easier and happier for the
present generation and more at
tractive to the routing one. The
truth of this statement means much,
and our iieople should take it to
heart and press oil.
A few years ago there was a great
hurrah alsiut progress iu the towns,
while nothing was said atsmt the
development of the rural districts.
This is changing. Of course, the
progress of Isith town and country
should really keep pace with each
other. Itutat present there is more
real improvements in the rural dis
tricts than anywhere else. There
is not necessarily uiore money
Is'ing piled up, but in the things
that make life easier, sweeter, anil
more worth while the country com
nullities that are trying are scor
ing a notch ahead of their brethren
iu the towns. The other day a law
yer iu one of the good counties of
the State said to the writer: "Our
towu is not improving and prob
ably will never lie much larger
than at present, but the county is
going ahead." Towu improvement
hits been taking on too much the
form of mere increase in population
or business. County improvement
is more of an intellectual, moral
aud spiritual uplift an well as mere
material prosperity. May it go on
"I know that there is nothing
left for me in the world now except
what I can realize through my chil
dren," saitl a man whose head is
silvering, to the writer. And pub
licly a well known business man of
Monroe saitl the other day that he
was satisfied to live for his chil
dren. We all want to get a little
more of this doctrine into our
heads. A few men in any coin ina
nity who take the cause of the chil
dren to heart will revolutionize
things. Au earnest man of this
county has been in the presence of
the writer since this article was
begun feeling almost despondent
over the opposition that he bud
encountered in an earnest etl'ort to
establish a good school iu his neigh
borhood. He aud others have
worked like men for the cause, yet
people who have sense enough to
know better aud ought to have
patriotism enough to do bettsr, are
striving to clog the wheels and
stop the work. "It docs look hard
on us who are trying to do some
thing to lie hindered and frustrated
as we are," lie said. "But," he
continued, "we will keep on and
succeed. Our homes are there ami
we can't get out without sacrificing
them, and we can't sacrifice the
training of our children, so there is
nothing left but to keep it up till
we wiu, and then the good will be
equal to all, aud more of the trouble
that we have undergone." True.
The glory of building np, of leav
ing something to show that we have
lived, to do some good for those
about us as well as for ourselves Is
worth something. It Is the laurel
crown. It is tno victor s wrentn
'The enrse of the age is the
money standard that we have set
up as the measure of suet,'' aid
a man the other day whose profes
sion brings him in contact with
every phase of life, "the mad rush
for money, the counting of every
thing as naught if it does not pile
up dollars, the saciificingof every
thing to personal aggrandizement.
The same thing is rotting the fouu
dations of our political life. The
idea of public service on the part
of public men has given way to the
desire for personal gain, and set
fish news has taken the place of
patriotism." These wonls are true.
They do not mean that there are
uo honest men in public life God
forbid but they do mean that pub
lie careers are no longer sought as
channels of patriotism and honor,
but as means to the com moo end of
the times: personal poveraud gain.
The gain may Iw the ntere salary
atlas-tied to the place; or it riay lay
the tsiwcr that gives Ihe opMirtu
uity to make money. Whatever it
is, the result has become the same.
That result is the desire for popu
larity rather than service. The
sails are trimmed for reelection,
and everything is suUirtlinutcd to
this. There is no leadership. All
this goes hack to the rtmt of the
evil. As iu the days of Solomon,
so it is today: the love of money
not money itself is the n4 of all
evil. As long as our chief ipiestion
is, "What is he worth." instead of
what he is, so long will the pro
posed remedies for evils lie mere
suerfif iaditiett, ointment oil tlte
brandies when the trunk is rotleu.
No sensible man inveighs against
wealth ami its accumulation. It is
necessary. Material prols'rny is
the basis of all general happiness.
It is the false standards that have
lieeu set up. The wealth of the
country should Is- its servant, Hot
its uiaster. It should elevate in
stead of degrade, because it gives
the means of intellectual, moral ami
spiritual advancement. Let the
grand old South go on iu the accu
mulation of wealth, welcome the
gcucral prosperity anil the indi
vidual successes Work for prog-
res in the towu and iu the country.
Hut welcome it all as a means to
better things, not as an end. Let
us strive to make ami do things,
for no man who is "slothful in busi-
is" is worth much, but let us
stand upon our wealth and reach
out lor a higher intellectual life, a
sweeter social one, a deeper spirit
ual one, not crawl umlerthat wealth
like slaves and grovel before it like
dull worshircra of pagan stocks.

Mr. J. P. Kerr of Asheville, who
is a man of some note in his sec
tion, has written a letter to the
News and Observer expressing his
itleas aUiut the object of the meet
ing of the Cotton (2 rowers' Associ
ation that is to take place iu Ashe
ville on the lith. Among other bits
of logic based upon a fallacious con-
ceptiou of the subject, he says:
fan the South continue to de
nounce John 11. Rockefeller for fix
ing the price of coal oil, and the
Armours for fixing the price ol
Is-ef, or liny other man or set of
men for fixing the price of any
thing, when our jMtiple openly and
without apparently one single
doubt as to their right to do so,
meet and fix, arbitrarily, by com
bination and it pledge to stand by
it, the price of the largest and most
necessary commodity on this conti
nent! I have not se'U or heart! of
newspaper that has suggested
that there was even an improprie
ty, to say nothing of wrong, in such
a meeting for such a purpose.
"The cotton growers will give hy
their promised meeting, the most
potent endorsement to trust ami
monopoly that has ever lieen given
iu this country, and the wonder to
me is that the Southern press, Dy
their marvelous dumbness on this
fiucstion, seems to lie either afraid
to express itself or else has reached
the conclusion that it ought to stop
the fight it has lccn prosecuting so
long ami go in and get ny wrong
methods what it has not succeeded
iu securing by right."
Mr. Kerr is unnecessarily alarm
etl. He has visions of a bugaboo,
He hits flown many miles out of the
orbit of reason in order to jump at
a conclusion. There is no more
analogy between the Standard Oil
Company and the Cottoti Associa
tiou than there is between Mr.
Kerr's reasoning ami good logic.

to rob this gentleman of any test.
If the farmers can't organize lo say
how much they ought to have for
a commodity that they have made
themselves out of the ground, not
by manipulating the market ami
cornering the product of soineUrily
else's work and sandbagging all
those who would engage iu the
same business, who should have a
right to organi.e! The Is-ef trust
or th oil trust kills Ihe prtsluivr
ami robs the consumer. The pi ice
of their raw products and the price
of tint product to the consumer
have no relation, and Imth are
strangers to the law of supply ami
demand. To make Mr. Kerr's
analogy hold good, the cotton asso
ciation would not only have to con
trol all the cotton produced iu the
country aud force its consumption
at an arbitrary price, but it would
have to lie composed of other men
than those who made the cotton by
uo aid but that of the soil and Husky.

There was no excuse for this war.

If he hail observed the usual dipln

him the mural power and prestige
of the nation of hii h, in the eyes
of the world and esM-eially of Ja

for her magnanimity and noble
self sacrifice. She has surrendered
her self interest and her just de
mands in the interests of humanity
and peace. She has not only aliau
doiicd legitimate claims, but has
yielded up territory which by the
laws of war she was entitled to

lint Japan had to consider the tact
that to continue the war meant the
xpenilitiire of l, 000,000 a day
a terrible fact, as her own iituhaa
