What Co-Operation of Capital Has Done
Perhaps the finest illustration of the
advantages of union and co-operation
is found i:t the story told of an old
The Arrington Case.
According to the correspondent of
the Constitution, Judge Hansell said
to the bailiff in charge of the jury,when
that official delivered a message to
man who called his seven sons- him, saying the jury could not agree,
to his bedside, as lie stood face to lace
with the grim monster. He ltauded
a bundle of twigs to his eldest son,
saying, “Break that bundle, my son.”
The young man tried his best to break
it but it withstood all his efforts. One
by one the sons made the same effort,
with the same result
Cutting the cord that bound the
lniudfc together the old man handed
the twings one by one to his sons and
they broke them very-easily.
The application is ton plain to re
^,’o-operation is the most jiowerful
factor that can be used by’ a commu

capital in the next. What one mau
could bo uuable to do by his own
efforts, five, ten or twenty men can

The exemplification of the advan
tages of co-operation that Thomasville
can otter to those that might doubt its
efficiency, are both numerous and
conclusive. The Times-Extkrfrise
gives below a list of the capitalized
institutions of the city that have come
into life through the co-opcrtion of
individuals and of money.
