Itijililj jili'iisal with the progress being made by the workers "i the Automobile Contest. Some have not made reports for some time hut we take it they are dilli. gcntl\ at work. We desire to say 1 1> ; the public that the names appearing i below are those who have entered the eontest ami that they are duly authorized to solicit new subscrip tions, collect for the same and that they are authorized to collect on old subscriptions. 'I his is a project to get the Independent into as many hqmes as possible for several rea sons. Among these reasons are: Firt. An effort on the part of the INDEPENDENT to create a county community spirit among the people of the county to co-operate in the logical development of the count> in a way that every man, woman and child may take an active part in the work. Second. That the products of the county may he put on the market in a way that will bring more money into the county. Third. That the people of the county get together into community centers to discuss and lay plans for the greater, larger and more diver sified development of the county along industrial and other lines. Fourth. That a spirit of enter prise, boost and enthusiasm may at all times be maintained for the good of the county on the part of all its citizens. No community can be greater or more enterprising than the spirit and mind of its own citizenship. On every had, at any time, one can hear words and condemnation against 'I?'igh taxes and costs of liv ing. Much of this expense can be climiated but that elimination can only conic about by the healthy or ganization and public spirit of the citizenship exercised as a unt and never by individual protest. Much can never he eliminated because debts have been made and they will have to be paid. Take the proposition of good roads which is a boon to any com munity. Be those roads built by local district bond issues, by the funds of the State Bond Issue, or by Federal Aid, it makes no matter how the people ih'ave the money to pay. If it be by local funds the peo pie of that locality have the a/uount all to pay. If it be by the State Fund the people of the county have their proportionate amount to pay. If it be by Federal Funds, although the tax lie collected by indirect meth od, yet the people of Greenbriei county have their proportionate amount to pay. Hence there is no way to eliminate part of the ex pense of taxes and other community expense. There are many ways in which more money can be perman ently brought into Greenbrier coun ty which money will aid in bearing this expense and aid in community development. It is for this purpose and to meet Mi'e needs of the county and everv community in the county that the i.NDEPENDENT put on the drive for a larger circulation that it might reach more people. There fore, it wants to ask the people who are in this contest to go at the mat ter in a manner and in a spirit to boost the county and for the benefit of all its citizens. Men arc preparing articles for future publication in the INDE PENDENT which will present to its readers methods and means where by this can be done. These men are citizens of your county and men who l.ave made a study of the con ditions and who arc anxious to sec the county come to the front along all lines. Not only will this be done but every interest in the county, in cluding the coal fields in Western Greenbrier will be given space in the columns of the paper. If the true and proper spirit of thrift and enterprise can be aroused in the peo pie of Greenbrier county (and it can be) every *2.00 spent for the IN DEPENDENT will bring back to each one a hundred fold in return. This all depends, however, on the manner in which the people lay hold of new ideas and enler into new land inexpensive enterprises to help themselves. For example within the last few months campaigns have been made and one is just now being made for large Minis of money, either to start new institutions or to maintain old ones, which old ones are near and | dear to the hearts of many of Green brier's citizens The cry is ever I bat there is no money in Hie County. Why is there no money? Simply because the people of Greenbrier have never developed in Greenbrier what can easily be done to bring money into the county. Enterprises can be start ed in Greenbrier county by the co operation of its citizens and at little expense which will bring thousands of dollars each year in the county. And in a very short time after start ed from (?0 to 7"> per cent of it will be clear money. Money that can re main in Greenbrier county to be used to finance any enterprise. This j is what many of the county's enter prising men have in mind and which will be given to the public through the INDEPENDENT. This I is what the INDEPENDENT wants to lake a hand in doing for Green | brier county. We ask our readers to heartily co-operate with the solici . tors in this campaign and start a sane, logical boost and enthusiasm for Greenbrier county tlit its citizens 1 rbip may in a few years develop il ' into a veritable garden-spot surpass, led by no other section. Place it in the position of thrift and enterprise '---it so richly deserves to occupy. ' For S;s!e. ? Complete set of good hlacksinith tools. tiSica)). Apply to J. I.. Helms. Li-wisburg.
