He was one of the best known men

feebly the high regard in which he

that they would ever be held in

UoIhoii to
TllK IIkkM-D's interview witl
President Croan, published lust
week, iu which he authorised us to
state that he desired to consider a
proposition from the city of I'lattn
moutlt looking to the establishment
of a first class normal college here,
has induced a number of our peo
ple to think seriously of the matter.
At this writing, Messrs. Thomas
and Isaac Wiles appear to be the
most enthusiastic supporters of the
movement. The former called tit
TllK Iliik'ALH office last evening
and stated that in the event the
citizens of Plattsmnutli desired to
make President Croan a proposi
tion, he would donate a sufficient
amount of land for the college
campus; also, he and Isaac would
each furnish, gratuitously, ten
acres of land, providing thecituens
would purchase for the use of the
college what remained of the orig
inal eighty acres, which would
probably be about fifty-five acres.
This proposed site is located six
blocks directly south of Oak Hill
cemetery, rendering it about one
mile from the business portion of
the city.
Tliii I1i;kai.I should be pleased
to see our people awaken to a true
realization of the importance of
this matter. A prominent Shenan
doah business man, iu speaking oi
the loss property holders of that
town would sustain by the removal
of the college, recently slated that
properly would immediately depre
ciate JO percent. If it be true that
a college of that nature would
enhance the value of properly even
11) per cent, our properly owners
could donate in the aggregate at
least $100,000 and yet receive the
equivalent of a high rate of interest
on the investment. The bringing
of 1,000 students to our town would
bring hundreds of families and
thousands of dollars every year;
as a medium of advertising a town,
n school conducted by President
Croan has no equal, for catalogues,
primarily in the interests of Ihe
college.yet incidentally setting forth
the merits of our town and coun
ty, would besent into nearly every
community in the country.
Hcsidcs, those of our young peo
ple that to-day attend school iu
other towns, would remain here;

getting an education. The location
0f Buch a school would be a help to
tovm intellectually. As our
churches reflect theyrays of divine
light over the community and thus
raise our people to a higher stand-
ard ol morality, so would a college aid in thesocia. and
intellectual culture of thecomiiiuii
ity. Here is a golden opportunity.
Shall we embrace it? If so, let a
meeting of the board of trade be
called and committees appointed
to push the matter vigorously.
An Unfortunate Runaway.
Koy Uritt, boh of Dr. Uritt, met
with quite a misfortune while out
driving Sunday afternoon. While
driving in the neighborhood of
the electric power house the horse
j became unmanagable and iu its
fright hurled the buggy aga inst a
large tree, throwing ?ir. unit about
fifteen feet in the air aud jolting
him considerably. 1 he buggy was
damaged considerably, it was un-
fortunate that the accident should
occur, but, as the southern .stales-
I man would put it, we migtit be
glad "it 'twa'n't no wuss."
