Charlotte Nea 1 ®
One of the lawyers arguing for the de
fense in the case of the girl out yonder in
San Francisco who killed her mother de
clared that the chief contributing cause
to the girl's delinquency was that she
had never had any "moral or religious
training." r
jj There are many Worthy- Ellingtons in
America today, many jwhauce. in North
Carolina and not a few' in, Charlotte,
girls who will not likely etet kill their
mothers or anybody else, but girls, nev
ertheless, who are losing-their inherent
value to society because tr<V have • ho
value to society training, like the £irl
wurderer of the Pacific Coast.
The attorney, in thus presenting to the
jury what he evidently conceived as
grounds for its consideration, brings a
challenge indictment against the modern
Bo me and society.
$ His statement explains much of the
grime today. Not only are boys turn
ing criminals in knee pants, but. the
country is witnessing a sweep of wrong
doing over its girlhood that is appalling
and amazing.
We are told that for every boy there
is an American college, there is an Ameri
can boy in prison, and that the delin
quency of young girls is approximately as
far reaching when we come to study the
mere numerics of their stunts.
_ In the majority of cases, the wrong at
mosphere in the days of childhood is res
ponsible. The American home today/is
not even suggestive of the early domestic
environs into which the Puritan fathers
pitched their families.
Pehaps. they were too strict and rigid
and prudish and ail that sort of thing,
and it may be well have that we have
gun out from under some of the weights
and impediments with which they oliain
a ed the feet of their children, but. even
so. we are bound to accord them the dis
tinction of having reared their
th# fear of the Lord and the law and to
have contributed to American society that
slant and bend for the better and for
the morality with which our early his
tory is so significantly filled.
In the American home today boys and
girls are allowed to do pretty milch as
they please. Fathers are too busy with
their pursuits and mothers with their
Clubs and leagues and outside engage
ments to give the children that parental
oversight ami intense concern that they
must have if they are to be reareil aright.
Tbe result of this neglect is that the
children are growing into manhood and
Womanhood with their old Adamic ten
dencies unchecked, with their natural wills
allowed to run their course and with their
spirits rebellious to any social or moral
There is not that reverence for sacred
and holy things, that fear of doing wrong
because of its spiritual consequences of the

Program Started This Morning at Ten
- O’clock and Various Features Have At
-14 tracted Many People.
'• Hundreds of persons from all parts of
. Cabarrus County are in Concord today
I. for county commencement, the attend
ance at the morning session having been
. unusually large.
- v The commencement exercises started fit
i. 10 o’clock this morning in the high school
... building and although the attendance dur
ing tlm moruing was good, it has been
much better during the afternoon dhe to
- the fact that many farm people worked
in the fields until the noon hour and then
s came in for the afternoon session.
The recitation aud declamation con
tests were held during the/morning, the
- speakers winning much just applause for
i the fiue manner in which they presented
. their various recitations aud declamations.
. Many who have attended commencement
- exercises for a number of years were
- heard to remark that the contests this
year were unusually fine.
This afternoon Dr. George Howard, of
' the State Department of Education, is de
r livering tire literary address. Dr. How
ard was asked to speak here on rural
school organization and kindred subjects,
aud for that reason he brings a message
-of unusual interest to farm people. Dr.
■ Howard arrived in Concord during the
1 morning and while here will be the guest
■ of Prof. J. B. Robertson, county super
‘ intendent of schools.
Practically all of the schools of the
’ county have closed their work for the
present scholastic year. A few of the
’ schools ended the year's work last week
■ and most of the others finished the work
this week. Where it is possible to do so.
' the schools always close in time for the
county commencement, but there are a
few which have longer terms than the
, others while still others must complete
work that was interrupted by sickness and
other causes.
’ In discussing the closing of the schools
[ Prof. Robertson stated that work dnr
j 'ug the past year had been very suocclss
( fill aud satisfactory as a whole.

The revival meeting is goiug in high
gear. The main church auditorium would
iiot hold the congregation Friday night
and the Sunday school rooms were
brought into use. Everybody seems to
eujey the singing a* we have congre
gational singing, the old songs that our
mothers used to sing. Mr. Whitley
preached a great sermon from Matthew 1
8:22. "but Jesus said unto him. follow
me. and let the dead bury the dead.” He
s-aid in part:
I waut to ask a question, what kind
of a funeral do you want preached when
you die? Well yon say I waut a good
funeral preached. Ye-, people live for
the devil and then when they die their
loved ones want the preacher to preach
them in heaven. I will tell you how some
funerals should be preached. Here is a
farme;-. and 1 love the good honest fann
er. But here is one who will not go to
ebun-h and pays no need to his soul. All
he does is to make cotton and corn
and curse aud swear. And when he dies
they send for the preacher to preach him
iu heaveu. Well they ought to scud for
all the swearers In that community, fill
his grave with old plows, and then put
a slab up to his grave saying "gone to a
dry climate.”
Then the merchant that lives for gold,
and ignores Jesus Christ: he don't give
but ten ounces for a pound. He sins
with a long arm, and an outstretched
hand and his grave should be filled with
old goods boxes, and a (dab put to his
grave saying, “ran get ao more insur
ance." Don't for God's sake be a hypo
crite. Why don't the InUdei come and
stand at (tic coffin of their infidel friend
when he dies? N'o they won’t come and’
look on bis fare for they know he is
gone where they are going unless they
turn to’ God. 1m the-drunkard bury the
drunkard. Let the gambler burv the
gambler. Jet the monkey man be buried
by tbe monkeys. Listen, when the man
dies who says that Wan came from a
monkey they canrid g«* • crowd of mon-i
keys to bury him, and fib his grave with
eocoanuts. and put on his tomb stone “he
(came from a monkey, Hired a mbpkev and
went back to the monkeys.” ' <

The Printed Paggr.
I It is not my purpose to emphasize
I the importance. of rending, the influ
ence of the printed page upon modern
life—it is so evident that emphasts iR 1
superfluous—it would be arguing tne i
obvious. ('ivilization as a process must 1
have a medium through which to ex
press itself. Since the invention of print- !
’ ing. the printed page has been the main j
medium through which the collective ]
experience of the human race is recorded j
and passed on to society.
Ihack of communication, or a result
of the lack of reading, is one of the
ontstandug causes of the origin, or at 1
least of the duration, of the Dark Age. ,
jln that age the collective experience :
j of the race in the past could not be add- ,
jed to the personal experience of the in
] dividual. The individual is not ouiy a
member of his family or group, but also
of a larger unit which runs back to
primitive man. add if the iiue of con
portion is cut or clogged, we lmve a low
ebb in civilization.
Rending by presenting to us the past j
and the present, by revenling to ns what {
1 others are doing and what they have j
' done, throws light mam our present! ]
j problems and future difficulties. It has
lon tlie one hand the jmteiitiai power to <
| develop breadth of citizenship, fullness

equate. his conception of life more ver
satile—in fact in every way it render*
I him more capable to adapt, himself to an
i ever-changing social environment and'
l more susceptible to the needs of a timl-i
tifold society. On the other baud, by sos-i
l teridg an adequate understanding, it ren-’
ders the social structure able to cope:
• with social complexes and is meet nde
-1 quately the demands of a diversified life,,
; and to prepare the individual to live—

A scientist came all the way from South
Africa to give our department of agri
culture a sample of blood containing the

, to department officials, has caused enor
