A large number of educators of
state-wide fame were. attracted here
by the county school fair Friday. The
reputation of this county for progres
sive tnothods along educational lines
attracted them and judging from their
comments they were amply repaid for
their visit. A number of them were
outspoken in their praises of the event
and did not hesitate to state that in
many respects it was far ahead of any
thing they had ever seen before.
Among those here were State Super

A number of towns in North Caro
lina -have just been afflicted with the
so-called street carnivals. In most
cases these affairs have been voted a
public .nuisance of the first order. They
are unsanitary invasions from both
the physical and the moral standpoints
They leave no end of trash and lit
ter to be cleaned up behind them. The
values offered for the money received
are scarcely values at all, but mostly
false pretence. The public taste is be
ing lifted above them, according to re
ports from the country at large, by the
rapidly developing and improving
"movio" entertainment. Seeing that
this latter form of cheap entertain
ment is now available, it appears that
the wisest thing for our public authori

How Shaving Originated.
Thle comparative advantages and
