What I,aureus Needs.
Wo have a big cotton mill that we
diil not have ton years ago and it has
added t wo thousand to the city's popu
lation and is H 8t COSH Ton years ago
and we were a village after having ex
isted for a century as a hamlet. Twelve
years ago we built an oil mill. It is a
BUCOeSS, and a material factor in the
business of the city. In the year I'.KX),
Mr. Wllkes, an enterprising citizen,
has built and put in operation a large
furniture factory. It is a success, and
hundreds of pcoplo in our good county
are benefit ted. liming ready cash sale
for lumber, hitherto wasted as fuel on
the farm. These ontorprlses have
added, as we havo said, greatly lo the
growth und business of our little city,
contributed to tho success ami pros*
perity of many ei Ir.ens of our county,
given remunerative employment to
many families, as well as individuals of
our own county, while drawing many
from abroad The natural Inquiry
arises nor, fthal' wo consider the city
as finished, and shall our wldu*aweko
young htisi? e-> m> n .on." vide 'ha' 'hey
have done enough nd rest upon their
laurels.- In these lifteon ears it i a

largely to I he '\ eait ii and comforl of the
city ? throe bcaut'fu churches have

electric, water id telephone systems
are In operation, mites of smooth hard
and |K> lshod streets arc made four
banks have I ceo put on too for the
accommodation of business and the
public, and ad the e ontorprlses have
contributed to tho comfort and conven
ience of our whole county. But shall wo
halt at this? The town should have ten
thousand souls lit the end of the next, do
cad-, when another census is had. An
other cotton mil; pesslb y for liner fab
rics,is worth consld ringtnnother furni
iture factory, an addition lo the one in
operation: a hosiery mill; a hundred eu
triprises that we might enumerate and
we would not have far to go to find the
raw materia with which to work. A
business league composed of the young
men and the old should he organized at
once to take all these matters into con
sideration, but WO favor decidedly put
ting \OUUg b'ood in tin- lead. To sue
ceeil there shou.d be harmonious co
operation. There is a little army here
of good young men who should move
Solidly together, dozens of them lit to
lead, having the business experience
and t raining and who would Inspire en
tire confidence. What is wanted is to
put heads together, determine upon an
entorpvlso, and the work is more than
ha'f accomplished. We conclude with
the suggest ion that there Is now pro
bably more surplus capital in the city
and county than at any former period
and many farmers of the county have
means that they would gladly invest in
promising enterprises, and who are too
wise to put all their eggs in one basket.

The- world has never known a moro
dramatic situation than that presented
by tho foreign community within the
wall? of Peking while cut oil from com

During these long, doubtful weeks, tho
most Interesting liguro in this interna
tional tragedy was Sir Robert Hart,
who for moro than twenty-live years
has been as far, as a European might,
tho statesman guiding the aO'alrs Ol
tho Chinese Empire. Those familiar in
any dogreo with Eastern conditions,
hoped, after the relief of Peking, that
Sir Robert would break his long rule
of silence and give to the world his
story of the events which led to tIn
closing of the gates of tho Hiitlsh
Legation, and his views as to the poli
cies which should prevail in tho settle
ment of the dillicult ?'Uestions which
had arlson. On tho 17th of October,
tho following cablo-moesage from Sir
Robert's London representative to the
Editor of The Cosmopolitan was ro
oeived: "Sir Robort Harthas sent for
November number Fortnightly, Lon
don, and Cosmopolitan, New York, an
important article, on siege of Peking
about fifteen thousand words, which I
will post you to-morrow.
The MS. arrived In time to be in
eluded in tho December issue. It will
be read with tho deepest Interest, both
by statesmen and the general public.

honored by Sir Robert Hart in his se
