Standard Dictionary. Vol. SJfflL TRACY CITY, TENN.,' THURSDAY, JANUARY 28, 1904. j y EDITOR'S TABLE. X J T is difficult to understand why any reasonable person should oppose the Brownlow good-roads bill now pending in the House of Representatives. Nobody suggests that there is anything im proper about the Federal Government expending millions of dollars annually for the improvement of rivers and harbors, and yet the results of these expenditures do not come back to the people as they would in the case of expenditures on the public roads. Oener ally speaking, the rivers and harbors are plied by steam-boats and other!raft which are the property of wealthy individuals or corpo rations, and which are run for profit to the owners. Thus whatever benefits the common people derive from such improvements are first sort of filtered and the larger gobs removed by the owners of the freight or passenger craft which ply the navigable waters. But the building of a good road through a community brings a. direct, first-handed blessing to the humblest citizen. A good country road makes everybody happy, from the farm hand who walks a few miles to see his best girl on Saturday night to the farmer who has many thousands of pounds of farm products to market, and is of inestimable value to any section from a standpoint of dollars and cents. Mrs. Grundy is unalterably in favor of any movement which promises better roads, and is at this time especially anxious for the passage of the Brownlow bill because it is the most practi cable and tangible hope of a concerted move toward better roads in sight. We hope the Brownlow bill will become a law, and that Tennessee will not allow any grass to grow until she shall have put herself in position to get the benefit of every penny of her share of the twenty-four million dollar appropriation which the bill carries I T is said of George Francis Train, who died in New York a few days ago, that he loved children and children loved him. One cannot but think how much better this will sound to Saint Feter's ears when he turns to the Recording Angel and asks for the record of this man, than if the response should be: "He slew men by the thousand, "trampled upon the hearts of good women and hated children, in the accomplishment of his ambition, to the end that people might call him great." There is little hope for the dear old dame, Mrs. Grundy, the belle of Tracy City. She has branched off into poetry. Lynchburg Falcon. E of good cheer, neighbor. The attack was sporadic and acute.

We sincerely hope that not only the School Direciors, but eveiy teacher and parent in Grundy County, will heed the advice given therein. We need teachers who will love their pupils more than their salary ; we need longer terms of school, and we need school Directors who are eonsious of the importance and responsibility of their office. The Stale Superintendent says that the future citizenship of the state will be determined by the manner in which you School Directors discharge your duty. Yes and we Would add that the voters are also to a certain extent responsible. If we elect men who take no Interest in school matters ho is an improvement of the school possible?

Among twenty-einht inmates of the state penitentiary pardoned on Christmas by Governor Frazier were three children aged respectively 10 and 12 years, one colored. Early Benton, sent np for two years from Maury county for placing obstructions on a rsilrvad track, one from Hamilton coun ty, Sam Romanger, sent up for three years for Isrceny, and Charley Moore, (he 10 vear old while bov sent up from Madison county three years for larency. The mere fact that It is possible in Tennessee for children to be sent to a common penitentary for the want of a house of refuge, or reform school is a serious reflection upon our civilisation, This is particulary true when it is re membered lhat there la ni attempt at re formation of criminals of any aire in the prison system of this nor even any con- ideration given to their morality. The whole system reeks with the filth of crime and degradation, so much so that the poor, unfortunate being behind whom the doora are shut need have no hope unless, per chance he has influential friends on the outside whose prayers may follow him. Govenor Fratier merits the thanks of the people for the pardon of every boy whom the courts send to the peniteniarv and Christmas or no Christmaa they should be pardoned as soon as (hey arrive and sent back to the communities from rhen;e they came nntil the people wake up to a realization of the necessity of providing a state school of correction for young scamps, where they can at least be looked after with a view to their reformation.
