According to report of the In
terstato Commerce Commission,
the wages paid to all the cheaper
classesof railway employes arelow
er than they were in the year 1808,
notwithstanding the widely adver
tised increases recently granted by
TnE incorporation of Camden
lias been of great value to its citi
zens if for no other reason than
the fact that the children of the
town have been furnished with
fine free school advantages. The
school can bo maintained on the
eame high standard of excellence
under the new charter and the tax
payers will not be compelled to
pay one cent more that they have
paid under the present charter.
Li;r every citizen of Camden
make an honrt-t lT"ort to do some
thing for the Klid bem fit of the
town make some improvement in
hi own premises, or lend his in
line nee and stib' t inli'd ni l in pub

alleys and remove the trash and
rubbish from the street in front of
his premises. A great many im

Tiir.l.E is no danger so great for
a man or a boy as idleness. Jf the
mothers anil fathers would save
their boys, they should give them
something to do. lbiy an ax and
a saw, and let them chop up the
wood, no matter how large the
bank account. Let them keep the
weeds from the yard and garden,
the dirt from their own clothes,
and the dust from their own shoes.
Don't do everything for them. It
pays to teach the boys to work
not so much as what they can do
as for what it does for them. The
same rule applies to girls. Give
your children employment.
A glance at the list of the great
men of the big cities of the United
States proves beyond the question
of a doubt that the country bred
boy is far superior to his city bom
cousin in point of business and
irofessidnal ability and general
capacity. Many reasons are ad
vanced for the success of the eoun-
ry boy in the large cities, but one
hat seems to hit the nail on the
lead is that the youngster reared
in the country is taught to woik,
and by this is meant a good honest
day's work one of twelve hours
He is a sticker, too, who is willing
to start at the bottom, and when
you find a country boy who is a
worker and a sticker he is invinci
ble. You can't keep him down.

"We have been frequently asked
why it was that the people in the
country took such an active part
in the recent fight against the sa
loons of Camden. They looked at
the matter from a moral stand
point. The fact is, the country
people suffer more from the sale
of whisky than do the town people
because we have some protection
und they do not. Drunken men
blackguard, curse and shoot rigl
in front of their homes and in the
presence of their families when re
turning from town, while often
their church and Sunday schoo
services are disturbed by men in
toxicated with whisky bought in
town, and as for night entertain
ments they have ceased altogether
in many localities because of the
. disturbances of drunken men.

The recent discussion of the cor
poration question brought out some
assertions in regard to our school
that has aroused keen interest.
For weeks previous to the recent
charter election the town was
stirred by this important question
and some good citizens were led to
believe that if we voted out the sa
loons it would kill the school
Viewing our municipal and educa
tional problems and conditions in
the light of recent experience, we
fail to see why a tax of SI. 00 under
the new charter will not provide as
much revenue for school purposes
as a tax of $1.00 under the present
charter. Our streets are in goot
condition and will be for severa
years to come, hence there will be
no great need for as much expend
iture for street improvements as
we have made in the past few years.
A municipal ticket composed of
men who are in favor of a good
school and municipal government
will be placed before the citizens
of the town, and it remains to be
seen just who it is that are willing
to kill the school and municipal
Really, we believe that the illu
sions coupled with the passing of
Camden's saloons have been dis
pelled in the minds of those who
have given the matter their un-
prejudicial thought, andessentially
it is indeed a matter of the highest
patriotism, of the most genuine
nationalism; though befere this,
and beyond this, it ia a principal
of humanitarianism which will
have fruits not only in our own
town and county, but in distant
parts of the State for it is being
watched from afar by good men
and wise, with curiosity, profound
interest, and intelligent hope.
