LAURA GLENN MILLER
If anyone in the world ever richly
fulfilled a ministry of suffering that
one was Laura Glenn Miller, whose
death occurred at her home on Kings
ton avenue, Thursday morning, and
whose funeral will take place in Shel
by, her old home, this morning, the
service to be held in the Presbyterian
church conducted by her former pas
tor, Rev. Mr. McMurray, assisted by
her more recent pastor, Rev. Dr. Mc
Ilwaine, of Westminister Presbyterian
church who will accompany the fun
eral party to Shelby this morning.
Mrs. Miller before her marriage
was Laura Glenn McCants, of Winns
boro, S. C., her family of the old aris
tocracy of South Carolina, her people
eminent in intellectuality as well as
refinement and culture, the men, part
of the history of the state that made
South Carolina supreme in interest
in the history of the South.
The writer first knew Mrs. Miller
when we were girls at Peace Institute,
Raleigh. We desked together for two
winters. A sweeter, finer, nobler
spirit, never lived than Laura Mc
Cants. She was a girl of fine mind,
highest refinement, sweet true and
noble. Every one in the school which
was the leading school in the south.
drawing patronage from ocean to
ocean, the student body as fine a set
of girls as could be found in the coun
try, loved Laura McCants. She was
the finest of the fine; the truest of
the true; purest and noblest in type
in the student body. She was beloved
by teachers and students.
While there, she had the first at
tack of rheumatism, a very severe
one, which came near proving fatal. I
But her mission was not so soon to
be over. This disease was to come :
back in her young married life and I
take possession of her body as the ,
crucial test, through frightful phy- i
sical suffering which she endured un- i
til feeling became deadened to pain. <
As she said once, "I have suffered
beyond the power to suffer."
For 30 years she had been confined t
to her--rolling chair in a recumbent
position. The chair, with its burden
of suffering, became a shrine to Shel- t
by. Everyone went to Mrs. Miller in I
their joys, or in their sorrows, and
found her an interested listener in '
one, and a sweet sympathetic helper '
in the other.
In the summer her chair was rolled
out in he yard and every morning
and afternoon friends gathered a
round her chair.
Possessed of a beautiful mind, the e
people sat at her feet and learned of i
her. She was a benediction to the t,
town, and when she left to come to e
Charlotte, where one of her daughters u
was living, Shelby felt as if its best v
friend, its counselor had left.
Through .her affliction of ill health u
he exerted an influence that will live I
on as a monument to her precious t
nc.nory.-Charlotte Observer. e
Growth, advance in population pros" s
erity and civic advantages, is the
ream of every community. The im
portance of a town is gauged by the;
utsidle world by its figures of popula
tion. Every progressive man is an -r
ious to see his town grow greater,
confident that at tlie same time It
must grow be:ter.
Where so many towns are comnpet
ing for the same end, many of these
hopes must be dlisappointed If some
places gain, others will remain sta
tionary or losa. If a comriunity re
muins indifferent to 'ts own advance
ment, the chances are that it will re
main stationary, while its ycung and
enterprising me'n go elsewhere.
The problem of what practical
things can be (lone to make a town -id
vance' in population andl prosperity
is one'vitally important to our own
community. .How shall we get our
share of the splendid advance that has
been accomplished by so many places,
which has multiplied the value of all
property and of every solvent busi
ness, andl secured public improve
ments and comforts of living not oth
erwise to be had ?
This question vwas put recently by
a representative of this paper, to the
secretary of a hustling Board of Trade
in one of the most progressive cities
in the Un;ited States.
The goestioner expected to have
the secretary reel off a long story of
organization andl machinery, by which
new indlustries were secured, capital
subscribed, andl factories built.
Instead he was surprised to heai
the Board of Trade man reply, that
it often seemed to him that the get-1
ing of new industries and increases
in population were a matter of luck1
or chance. "You can send your ap
peals in a thousand directions", he
saidl, "and get nothing. Then in some
unexpected way the news of your ad-]
vantages makes ani impression on the
thousand and first man, in the quart
er where you least expected it, and1
you land something big."
This Board of Trade man did not
mean that a commumity can lie back
and go ahead without effort. On the
contrary, only consistent and incesw
ant effort can make a town gtror.

Thousands of cities and towns are

new industries as the result of such

sually resulted from insufficient in
estigation. A commitee of business
wen would make a hurried trip to look
p the proposed enterprise. They
rould not go to the bottom of the
king. After the concern got start

It is perfectly possible to do it here

1. Successful corporations are cor
tantly enlarging their business by
tarting new branches in other towns
here they can finid workers. Such
oncerns do not commonly go begging
'or stock subscription. They very
'requently insist that they be given
chance to rent some suitable build
ng, at least until the new enterprise
ets on its feet. There is not usually
nuch risk in assisting a propositiou
>f this kind.
A progressive town should be wili

ealth, to build and rent a factory
or a hopeful proposition. The coun
ry's manufacturing facilities are tax

o more- than one purpose is not apt

2. In most any town having good

watch the progress of such concerns.
