Johnson, a Tisitor in Spartanburg.. Mayor Elect Oren L. Johnson has as his guest for a short time his brother, Edgar Johnson of Riverside. Cal. Mr. Johnson, whose old home is in Hender son coutny, N. C., v moved to the far west 27 years ago and since has made Riverside his, home. However since being away from this section he has made repeated visits to the Carolinas and this morning stated that on each trip to the east he noted marked im-. provements and "especially had Spar tanburg made rapid strides forward. Mr. Johnson, during the 27 yearV he has lived in California has ac acquired four daily newspapers, three afternoon papers an "done morning sheet. He personally supervises "the :wqrk of all of these enterprises and is one of the foremost figures in: Califor nia journalism. He 'has' beeha, for a number of years, secretary of the Cal ifornia Editors Association. . i A short time ago his health became very bad and. on the advice of physi cians, he left his offices aiid came east. Since coming here he ha smuch im proved and after visiting other rela tives in this section . will return to Riverside. Spartanburg. Journal. Western North Carolina. Western North Carolina; which is entered from the south through Spar tanburg as a gateway, and of which Spartanburg is almost a . part in soil and climate, is a wonderful region-of countr. It is well named "he Land of the Sky," and is indeed the summer playground of the east, the greatest re sotr country in America. The region is fertile in soil, . favored in 5limate, the year round, and certain to have its agricultural possibilities recognized Right now our attention has been called to Western North Carolina as an apple raising region. It is a fact, we believe that some of the best ap ples in the world are raised in North Carolina. In Spartanburg the "apple wagons on our, streets in the fall are from North Carolina. The apples they bring are not of the market type, that is not of the fancy market "type, be cause they have not been raised, but rather, just allowed to grow Scien tific apple growing has not been ap plied, .v . ' . . - On the other side of the mountains in such towns as 'Bristol, Johnson City, Morristown, the arrival of the North Carolina "apple wagon Is the same familiar incident of the fall it is over here. Which, in. our Judgment, only proves that North Carolina is "just naturally" an apple raising re gion and with application of modern ideas .and methods to the matter will become the greatest apple regiori in the world.

One of. his grandsons has come to Charlotte as editor of The Observer and 'to do what he can to help In the building up of this splen did city and to work . with his own people in every good cause which has for its object the welfare of this com munity and the great State of which it is a part. He does .not hope to fill the place of his friend, now waitirig for his well-earned , rest, but he does hope tcx- follow in his foot-steps, to emulate his -v virtues, to cherish 'fiis friends and win their approval, so that when his time shall come he will be able to say to the glorious fellow wito is passing on that he did nothing un worthy of the trust committed to him. It is the purpose of those who have now been adopted into The Observer family, to make this newspaper not dnly" a great newspaper for, Charlotte but a great ' newspaper vas ! well for North Carolina, - the South and the whole country; to build for the future as wel las for the present; to print all the news that, is fit to print; to be con servative in its treatment of all honest business enterprises and radical Jn its treatment of those that do not deserve the public confidence or justify the protection of the law; to keep The Ob server always brave, honest and fair; to reward no friends and punish no enemies saving only the enemies of the peace and good order of the State, and to so Vonduct its affairs that no one from theJeast to the greatest can truthfully charge unfairness or injus tice against its service.

C. HEMPHILL, .. " Editor The Observer. Spartanburg Apples. , On this page this morning we re corded our faith and belief in Western North Carolina as an apple raising section and in that connection . we mentioned the fact : that Spartanburg county is in soil and climate closely akin to t he mountain country, not knowing that we should so soon- have evidence to substantiate our claim to the similarity of the two. sections. The evidence comes in a message from Columbia to the V. effect that Spartanburg county apples, raised by Mr- J. West Harris on his place with in a few miles oftown, won the firs prize at the state fair. Mr. Harris' apples are the result of care given his orchard. Similar results may be had by all other apple raisers in this coun ty by, giving their orchards the right care and attention.--Spartanburg Herald. -' ,y V ' , v'-' y. ' MBS. C Ei - BEOOKSDIES.
