the holiday season.
With Thanksgiving day passed yes?
terday, the holiday season may now be
said to be fairly open, and from now
until New Years every department of
v.iuler trade and business will bo at its
best. Houseljeepers and furnishers
will begin laying in stores for the table
aud buyiBg and examining the innumer?
able little things that make homes
bright, comfortable and attractive.
The Christmas trade, too. will open
in a few days, as the time has passed
wheu people confine all their purchases
for that occasion to Christmas Eve and
one cr two days previous. The
suopk?epers, with au eye to busi?
ness, will hegia making their
show windows as bright and at?
tractive as possible to catch public at?
tention as people hurry by with bas?
kets and bundles. To this,if they have
any particular bargains to offer, they
will also add an advertisement iu their
borne papers, circulating among the
people from whom they expect to get
their patronage. Business generally
is even more than usually good this
season, but the live, wide-awake mer?
chant never losss nu opportunity to
make his business belter, but is con
tinus.'ly looking out for its enlargement
benefit a TOWS.
The Buiiding and Loan Associations,
Cr Roanoke, like similar institutions in
Other cities, are not charitable organi?
zations, nor are they founded parttcu- I
larly on philanthropic principles, but
it is doubtful whether either charity or i
philanthropy accomplish more sub- j
staniial benefits for a towmor a com
mnnity. The rapidity with which
hundreds of new buildiugs have fol?
lowed each other in the last few
years in Roanoke has m&de the city
the marvel of older towns, and build?
ing associations have been largely in?
strumental in aiding the erection of so
rn.nnv buhdiogs in so a short time.
In an address before the Social
Science association, of Philadelphia,
some time ago, Mr. Jas. I. Doran.
genera! counsel of the Norfolk aod
W66tern road, expressed a number of
practical aud exceedingly sensible
ideas on the conservative influence of
such associations upon people and
If you want to make a good citizen
there is certainly no better way of doing
it than in being instrumental in affording
him the means of owuing his own
home. In order to respect aud obey
the law, he must possess something to
causa him to value such obedience, aud
if every man owned a dwelling of his
own the spirit of auarchy would lose
the priocipal cause of the little strength
it4alre?dy possesses in this couulry.
Among the buildiug and loan associ?
ations in this city and elsewhere,which
have conlributed largely to the erection
of buildings here are the People's Per?
petual, Home, Merchants and Mechan?
ics, Old Domiuion, Roanoke Building
Association aDd Investment company,
Ronnoka Building Association No 1,
and the Lynch burg Perpetual
Association. All of these except
the Roanoke Building association
No. 1 are still in existence, and as an
instance of what they are doing, the
People's Perpetual Association, during
the two years and a hall' it has been
iu operation, has alone built fifty
three dwelling houses and two business
In regard to what buildhjg associa?
tions are doing throughout Pennsylva?
nia, the report of Professor Albert
Bowles, chief of the bureau of indus?
trial statistics for Pennsylvania, shows
the existence ol 1,000 associations in
that state, of which there are 218,0$
The number of shares are put down
at 1,362,500, and the number [ol bor?
rowers at 68,000. The assets of the
associations are $84,121.270, and their
disbursements in one year were $32,
Pennsylvania is a great state and her
building associations have helped to
make her greater.
The merchants of Roanoke who
advertise do the largest business. The
men who do the largest business do so
because they keep a good article of
Roods and sell them the cheapest.
1 herefore, the men who advertise keep
the best goods and sell the cheapest; a
syllogism that everybody should re?
ROANOKE A GOOD PEACE.
The Washiugtou correspondent ot
the Baltimore Sun says: Notwith?
standing ihe denials that have been
made by Herr Krupp, thi famous Gor?
man iron founder, it is said on good
authority that hia firm contemplates at
an early day the establishment ot a
branch of his establishment in Amer?
ica, and that sites in the mining regions
of Pennsylvania and Virginia neve been
inspected. Herr Krupp is anxious to
establish an American gun foundry so
as to he safe from the dangers
of a European war. lie fears that
in case of an invasion of Germany one
of the objective points of the hostile
army would be his gun foundry, and
that it would be wiped out of existence
as completely as lire aud dynamite
could do it. With a foundry in the
United States he would ruu no Buch
risk and would have an abuudauce of
raw material easily accessible.
There is a good deal of plausibility
iu the above statement, and if Herr
Krupp comes to America he could uot
do better thau locate in Southwest
Virgicia?in Roanoka for instance.
The Associated Press dispatches
bring ths intelligence of a $10,000,000
firo iu Boston yesterday. It was only
the other day that Lynu, in the same
state, was almost completely destroyed
by the fire fiend, aud now the 14 Hub"
has suffered iu the same manner. The
disaster was the only great calamity of
the day to mar the Thanksgiving fes?
tivities, but it serves as a remem?
brance that every cup Ins its gall, aud
even a summer picture its shadow.
