ONi; THING LIIAIS TO ANOTHER.
The old adage, "one thing leads
to another," is a truoone. One new
industry started in a town is soon
followed by another or many oth
ers. The success of the first makes
tho second necessary; or if it be an
independent concern, encourages
io establishment of others of like
character. The rule has been
)roven often and in many places
)ig and little by many enterprises
and little. It is well to get out
of tho old rut at any point and at
any time and in any way. There
not a town or village in the
country that can nof'make a break"
in some direction if its business
men and progressive men will get
together to start some new enter
prise of some description, if only to
utilize tho wasted resources of the
ocality or to supply the home de
mand, the coilntry demand, for
some products that is now purchas
ed abroad. A canning factory, a
furniture factory, a cotton factory
in fact, there is a long list of in
dustries that would pay a profita
ble dividend when once established
lere. All that is required to so
cure these enterprises is for some
of our progressive men to "make
the break," and the rest will follow.

LET IS CELEKKATE.
A big Fourth of July celebration
should be worked up for Camden.
it a very small expense a big
crowd would be attracted here
Something like a basket picnic
could be provided, with good speak
ing (of which we have a good sup
ply of home talent to draw from)
crames and other amusements ant
at eight a fewT fireworks iu cour
square or the suburbs of theiown
AVe make the suggestion in time
for ample preparation for a cele-
. -9 t T 1 1 11 l
oration, we would liko to see
some of our enterprising and patri
otic citizens take hold of this and
let us have a Fourth of July cele
bration that will be a credit to
Camden. Other towns are doing
this. Huntingdon, raised nearly
300 last year in a few hours, and
they had a grand time. People
from Camden attendedbecause
we had no celebration at home!
Must we let the great American
bird which typifies liberty soar al
around us, leaving us sitting iu the
shadow of his wing? Get up a
celebration, and the crowds will
come. Don't delay. Call a mass
meeting, appoint your committees.
We can have a big celebration and
patriotism will flow liko water.
Besides, it will do tho town good.
The annual cloning exercises of
'the public school took place Rt the
ourt-house Thursday andrnday
nights of last week before audien
ces mat completely imcKeu ma
house, many being turned away
after vainly attempting to get n
footing even in the hallway leading
to tho court room.
The program Thursday night
was greatly enjoyed, especially the
drills and recitations, and tho dra
ma, "Driven From Home," came
in for its shareofapplau.se, though
it was evident that those who took
a part had not given much time or
rehearsal to the play. ,The drama
was repealed on Saturday night,
and was presented with more snap
and animation than on the first
night, and was enjoyed and appre
. Tho program Friday night in
cluded a fan drill and tho drama,
"Uncle Josiah's Courtship," which
was keenly enjoyed by tho large
audience present. Especially was
it appreciated by young America
who wa3 largely in evidence cud
The musical development of the
children drilled for the occasion
was strongly evident in the pro
gram Thursday night. Singing
ias been a part of the daily work
of the students since last Septem
It was first intended to have only
two nights of tho entertainment,
but in order to defray the expense
incurred in building a stage, etc.,
tho two dramas and one of the
drills were repeated Saturday night
and a small charge was made for
tho above purpose.
In summing up the program num
bers it would be difficult to in Ji
vidualize, even if we were eo inclin
ed, where all was so well done.
Professors Cooper and Lindsey
and Mrs. Lindsey deserve much
credit for the successful termina
tiou of the school as well as the en
joyable exercise closing the same,
and if the question is left with the
patrons of the school they would
bo promptly chosen to teach the
school for another year.
Those students who expect to
graduate have several weeks of
study ahead of them before the final
commencement exercises of Ben
