Record of Baltimorej; and Who .was the guest' of ; honor at . the Greater Charlotte Club banquet last week, made some suggestionsHhat are . worthy of the "serious ' consideration of Southern Newspaper men. He pointed out according to the Ob servers report that the South .. is backward about putting' its best self foward, and ' showing; up its virtues. He thinks that the pub rlicity given to the boll weevil and j the. hookworm, and child labdrv and to 'a whole lot of other cal lamity subjects, is grossly, exag gerated, and does a' lot of harm. Mr. -Elmonds expressed ; the thought that the Southern peo ple and the Southern press are not as constructive today as they were fifteen years ago. He thinks there is great need of reform in these -matters. Lynching '; stories the heavily headlined and infini tely, dwelt ;upon, while industrial K 4 handled in a paragraph. " Some of the Southern , papers he thinks rhave "degenerated into little more than records of calamity, killings aud crime. He thinks it would be a good thing if the' great bulk of this calamity, killing and crime could be cut out. N. C. Christian Advocate-. " " M t ' lira Mr. R. E. Haynes of Spencer has perfected a model of a motor plow for which he has made application for a patent.

Lewisville, 9 miles west of Winston Salem, was visited by a $2,500 fire yesterday, the large barn, containing 700 byshels of wheat and cdrn. and a fine supply of implements being to tally destroyed. A granary and other out-buildings were also burned. The owner, Mr. Lewis Spach, a well known citizen, did not have a dollar insur ance on his property. Only the work of neighbors saved Mr. Spach's resi dence. In the house at the time lay the body of Mrs. James, grandmother of Mrs. Spach, who died Sunday. The flames became so menacirig to the dwelling that the body was taken out side until the blaze had subsided.

Hol ly, of Wilmington, charged with the murder of Edward Cromwell, a 16 year old lad, by poison with strychnine and with firing the Rock Spring Hotel in order to conceal the crime.

What society shall di with dis charged prisoners is slowly hut surely being solved by the John Howard Industrial Home, . which celebrates its 20th anniversary soon. A most pathetic object is the discharged prisoner who thinks every passerbly sees the prison stigma upon him. This saps his courage and he slips back again until once more he is associating with criminals. The Howard home seeks to furnish him with a grip upon a new life. During the -last 20 years nearly 21,000 discharged prisoners have been cared for by the home until positions have been found for them. The home was founded in 1890 by the present superinten dent, Albert Arnold, and several other workers.

Pink Rowe and Ed He witt, who have road contracts in Caldwell township, are hard at work getting the roads in good shape. "They have moved more dirt in four days than has been moved in ten years." declared the sheriff. They are using the log draar and giving the roads a crown which sheds the water and makes a. solid roadbed. Sheriff Hewitt said that if the roads are, worked everywhere as well as these, the new road arrangement would rove a great thing.
