Tne Asheviile Citizen and" Spartan

The Asheville Citizen says: - V f
Since- discussing. the relation of our
opunty roads "to increased- tourist pa
tronage, The Citizen has received a
letter from a South Carolinian now vis
iting here wherein he pays particular
attention to the Hendersonviile road
"I think the Citizen is engaged in a line
of commendable endeavor," he says,
"when it urges the need of immediata
improvenlentc on portions of . the Ashe-ville-Hendersonville
traveling oyer .the. excellent roads of
HeaderBcn county .4we were considera
hiy surprised- to iiote the condition of
certain sectfons of-Buncome county's
read into. Asheville,. I understand that
this particular; road is one of the main
arteries into Asheville for automobiles.
1. respectfully suggest that if Asheville
and other points would increase toe
tourist patronage from our state, tha
county authorities should lose no time
in putting the road in good condition

So it appears mat opaii-anburg. and
Jiuncombe . counties. . ' the big ' ana
. wealthy counties traversed by the road
from the low country to the, moun
tains are the ones that are making the
worst showing. Polk and Henderson
counties," the smaller counties, ,have
their portions of this road in good conr
dition, but "Spartanburg v and Bun
combe "are not on 1. the job as they
should be. We know this Is the case
in Spartanburg, but are somewhat, sur
prised to learn tnat.r iiuncomDe is
showing indifference at the other end

PLAIN TALK "ABOUT WHAT
PREACHERS SHOULD PREACH.
The preacher wiio preaches in be
half of common hoaerty and . tells
folks who don't pay theii debts thai
they are dishonest, is not only pro
claiming practical religion but the
genuine article" as well. Unfortunate
ly, there is too little of this sort of
preaching doubtless due to. the fact
that there are in .every congregation
people who neglect the payment of
debt 'and the preacher is afraid they
will be personally affronted ; and also
the further fact that some of the
preachers are. careless about such
matters and can't preach to others
what they don't practice themselves. -
All ..this is preliminary to mention
ing an incident in which Mr. Ham, an
evangelist who holds meetings about
the State, figured at New Berne. Mr.
Ham was going.? after the merchants
who sell "dope, drops" whatever they
are which he claims is worse than
liqupr, when a merchant wrote a let
ter to the New Berne Journal to the
effect that the merchants could afford
to quit selling "dope drops" of the
Church members would pay their
debts, and he cited one case where a
Church' member owed him $40. Mr
Ham answered that if the merchant
would give him the na:x.e of the delin
quent Church member he would sea
that he paid the bill, out of the Church.
Subsequent proceedings not reported,
but it is The Landmarks opinion that
Mr. Ham is taking on a bigger con
tract than he can carry out. --
The Asheville Citizen, reporting a
sermon of Rev. J. M. Bass in- North
Asheville Methodist church, the sub
ject being "Honesty," bad this para-,
The speaker pointed put that re
ligion professed by a, person who
woudln't pay his debts was sham and
hypocrisy. He declared that people
would not have much faith in a man's
religion so long as he failed to meet
his obligations. t
And Mr. Bass was everlastingly,
right. Glory to the preachers who.
speak. plainly about the common sins
ot every day life. Sometimes it
takes . nerve, but it's the preacher.'s
duty and he fails if he sidesteps to
avoid tramping on somebody's toes,
fhe lack of nerve to talk plainly about
these . things has resulted in .many
wrongs becoming so common that they
almost, cease to be 'regarded
wrongs. Failure to pay debts, for in
stance, is a much greater wroag than
some of the things we hear vehementlv
denounced, and yet the deadbeat is so
common- that apparently, in many
cases, he neither loses standing in
Church nor. society.
MRS. HYDER'S POTATOES.
Mrs. D. E. Hycier of Blue - Ridge
township brought several bushels of
white hay top sweet potatoes to the
city last Friday Mrs. Hyder claim3
the distinction of being" the first for
several years to put potatoes on thn
market in Hendersonviile. Early po
tatoes are bringing fancy prices. Sho
states that trucking this season is fai
better than last year.
MAGNIFY HOME COMMUNITY:
(Henry W. Grady.) -n
rmt determined to magnify the
community in which your lot is cast.
Cultivate its small economies. Stand
by its. young industries.; Commercial
dependence is a chain that galls every
day. A factory built, at home, a book
published, a snoe or a pcok imu
these are steps in that diffusion of
thought and interest that is needed.
Teach your neighbors to withdraw
from the vassalage of distant capital
ists, and pay, under any sacrifice, the
mortgage, on the home or the land.
By simple and prudent lives, stay
.within your own resouces, and" estab
lish the freedom of your community
Make every : village and cross-roads,
as far as may be, sovereign to its own
wants.- Learn that thriving country
sides with room for limits, conscience;
and liberty are better than great cities
