The reason temperance
and the closing of saloons
made such slow progress prior
to 1900 was because all the
could vote. Except a few
preachers, teachers and others
of the best type, the vote
was always an asset of the saloon.
Therefore an election, with the
division found among while men
upon most questions was In most
places certain to go wot. But
with the elimination of the
vote by the suffrage

gone forward with a mighty
impetus. In Anson county,

question that needs attention.
There are a not enough houses
here, and the town cannot grow
faster than there are houses for
the people. It is evident that
more houses should be built.
The last report of the Pension
Commissioner affords an inter-
study. It shows that
during the fiscal year,
pensioners died. The

to think that while they are

The real man of size is
by measuring him as he
stands apart from the accident
of position. Among the
dents and misfits which one en-
counters in the course of human
events is the small man in the
large position- Such a man in
sometimes seems
big for a brief day, because of a
connection with a large position
He comes into the position by
accident. He most probably
it as a providence and ac-
cording to the divine of
things. If he does not invest
with all the importance
attaching torus position it a
wonder.
So small is he as compared
with his position, that he is ab
dependent on the
for power and prestige.
He must do business on the
credit of his position. His glory
is the reflected glory of his
sake The way he shrinks
when separated from his position
is pathetic.
We have known men to go
down from positions where ac-
temporarily placed
them, who endeavored to use the
of that former position
to advance them in their own lit-
schemes.
When a man is not bigger than
his position he is too small for it.
Only small men have to depend
on large positions for their own
largeness.
