The reason why the South has
not kept pace with the North and

class of men who develop them.

sutierionty over the men of the

tion is immensely excited to find
that in the differences to which
my Southern brother was born
and trained lie has done so well.
The man of the South in his in
herited rights and privileges is a
land owner, a cotton raiser; for
jreneralions he has been heir to

hero at V:i'b!.irit, that I take
the Idx-rly of replying by printed
Wadesbro is a town of U'tween
four and li thousand inhabitants,
situatol in the cotton lielt of
North t' irobna. It is the county
seat of Anson c unty and is lirst
and I i.st and all th time one of
the roming towns of the State and
the iith. - Moreover, it ran U

aginings of the over anient native,
who naturally wants things to
-oHie his vay. or the Northerner
hopeing to realize upon his invest
ments, bit ujon resources of
standard valuation and needing
Imro we are in the
Udt of the State,
anil the ease
with which these lands produce
their heavy harvests is one of the
sliking facts in the general advance
which the State is making. Here
t'-otton is King. As one said, "It
is actual money. Normally it
brings twelve cents cr jMiiind.
A single bale is worth sixty dol
hirs, and something over a million
dollars of cotton is sold in Anson
county every year. I am told
that it is the best upland cotton in
the world. King Cotton, massive j
of bulk and bale, ribloned w ith ;
iron and twine, anil seated uonj
his white throne in the center of
our city, is what is giving Wades-1
Ixjro its present loom. Any city
sources justify it. Wadesboro
booms because its resources de
mand it. In the light of what is
realizable today through the ap
plication of wisdom and energy to
enterprise, Wadesboro could not
play a weak game in the industrial
future of the State, if it tried.
Vet I do not interpret the awaken
ning of our city to any sudden
frenzy for money (there is money
enough here), nor to an attempt to
copy the civilization of the North.
It seems rather to spring from a
deep-seated desire, in the light ot
what has been accomplished North
and South, to develop the best in
dustries, organize the best trades,
found the best schools and realize
the highest order of community
life attainable. Hence our eye is
out and with the lid turned up for
the lxst skilled workmen in their
line, men or women who have the
genius and courage to begin in a
small way, and develop their
social line of work. Carpenters,
masons, woodworkers, moulders,
cooks, mechanics and artisans of
almost every type only a variety
of talent and skill toiling through
their varions lines of enterprise
will ever be able to work out the
richness, beautj, the unmeasured
resources of this country into a
iinished product and to the great
est public good. It is not so im-
lortant that they have money, for
money is here. ine insisiani
need is for men of skill, courage
and above all love for the South
and its ieople. Such new comers
will do well here.
For a year or two, under the
leadership of that master spirit of
civic improvement, John T. Pat
rick, the notable builder of towns,
and carefully Iieutenanted by an
able corps of citizens, Wadesboro
has been coming on rapidly along
the lines mentioned. There are
silk factories here, a large cotton
mill, two brick making plants, an
iron industry, a furniture factory
in process or construction, an
average of one new dwelling for
every day in the year, and all
sorts and varieties of tradesmen.
I am coming to feel a very great
interest in the ieople. Hut we
must have carienters, iron work
ers, mechanics of various orders.
It would be an ideal place for any
industry, conducted on lines that
success has lcen reached in the
North, especialy those which
would li in any way connected
with cotton or silk factories or
milling interest in general.

Now, what is true of pennies,

Time carefully saved, wisely

Fifteen minutes every day,

means the accumula
tion of a fund of vital knowledge
that is going to stand you in good
stead in the years to come.
About fifteen months ago, per
haps less, a bright .young fellow,
with a passably fair tenor voice,
came to the conclusion that he
could make something out of hi
musical instincts. He had a fam
ily, wife and two children. Not
a big salary by any means. All
his time pretty well taken up.
But he was determined to sing.
This what he has done: Instead
of taking his lunch downtown and
foolin the noon hour away, he has
walked home to lunch. It takes
him twelve minutes to make the
walk. Allowing twent-five min
utes for the walk backward and
forward, this gives him thirty
live minutes at home. When he
gets home, the lirst tiling he does
is to go the piano, run over his
scales and sing the exercises and
lessons that his instructor has
given him for lifteen minutes.

by eating at home, for he hasn't

to a remarkable degree, and just
the other day he was offered the
precentorship of a choir in a big
popular religious movement that
will make its influence felt as the

gave a sudden lunge so fierce as

hunter was surprised a few days
before the season opened to meet
another man with a gun. The
hunter stopped and waited for the
stranger to come up.

It is the only range in the world made of Malleable and Charcoal Iron.
It has, beyond any question of a doubt, the largest and lest reservoir.
. It uses about half the fuel of other ranges', and does better work by far.
The Majestic All Copper Nickeled Reservoir heats the water quicker and
hotter than any other. It is the only reservoir with a removable frame.
The Charcoal Iron Body of the Great Majestic Range lasts three times as
long as a steel body.
Being made of non-breakable material, there is practically no expense for
repairing the Majestic.
As for baking, it is perfection, not only for a few months, but for all
times to come. .
X Great Majestic Range lasts three times as long as a cheap range, but
it don't cost three times as much.
