Tliis paper desires correspondence
from all sections of the county.
With this issue the Times, under
new management, makes its debut
to the people of Alleghany county.
We are grateful for the kindness
shown and the courtesies extended us
In the preparation of this issue, and,
•we hope that in the future we may
merit your continued patronage. It
is our purpose to spare no time or
effort to give the people of this sec
tion a county paper devoted to the
welfare of the people and the devel
opment of this section. We desire
to co-operate with the various or
ganizations and agencies of the
County in promoting any project that
will make for a more prosperous
county and a happier people.
We desire to express publicly our
appreciation to the former editor of
The Times for his many helpful sug
gestions and valuable services to us
in getting established in the county.
He has shown us every courtesy pos
sible and offered his services with
out stint. For these considerations
we are very grateful. We know not
what new field of work he plans to
enter, but in whatever he does and
wherever he goes, we wish him bon
voyage and the best O’ luck.
To our readers away from the
mountains we extend a cordial in
vitation to visit Alleghany County
and other sections of the Blue Ridge.
F,oe the next three weeks the laurel
and rhododendron will transform
every slope and valley into a veri
table flower garden redolent of deli
cate odor. Flaming yellow and pink
azaleas blend harmoniously with the
dark green background of forests.
All the meadows and pasture lands
are carpeted with luxuriant grasses,
■where sheep and cows graze con
tentedly. Panoramas of rolling hills
and green valleys greet you around
each bend of the road and farther
on the numberless peaks of the Blue
Ridge stand like silent guardians of
the iliTmitable solithde, majestic in
their strength, the blue haze making
the irregular slopes merge into lines
of exquisite softness. Cool breezes
make the sunny days pleasant and
the nights a certain cure for in
somnia, and, after one visit, the hos
pitality of mountain people makes a
This and the next few issues of
The Times will be sent to as many
homes in the County as are on our
mailing list. We should like to send
the paper to every home in Alle
ghany for an indefinite length of
time, but since publishing a news
paper is a business that requires a
considerable outlay of money each
month, we must request that each
person who desires to receive The
Times each week pay cash in advance
for his or her suyscription. We
want to co-operate with every in
dividual as far as possible, but we
have to meet our obligations with
the cash each month, and we feel
that it is only fair and just to ask
that our advertisers and subscribers
co-operate with us in this matter.
We hope our readers will give
careful consideration to the ideas
expressed in Mr. Warren’s article in
this issue. Recent developments in
the business and economic world in
dicate a new era of progress for the
South. Business leaders of the na
tion have recently pointed our num
erous possibilities for developing and
utilizing the natural resources of the
Southern States. National interest
is being displayed in the gigantic
developments at Muscle Shoals. The
Snjoky Mountain National Park and
the reforestation and flood control
work in the Appalachians is causing
northern capitalists to investigate
the possibilities for investing capital
in the South. Now is the time for
our people to put forth a concerted
effort to attract business concerns
that will utilize our natural re
sources and bring markets for our
Within a very short while we ex
pect to have a complete printing
plant in Sparta. The new type-set
ting machinery has arrived and will
be set up for operation within the
next few days. This machine and
the job printing department will be
in charge of a competent printer
operator. Stationery and printing
supplies are being ordered, and with
in two weeks we hope to be able to
take care of the needs of our cus
tomers. We cordially invite you to
visit our plant at any time.
