The Unpardonable Sin of History.
Philadelphia Public Lodger.
When Germany drew Turkey inlo ?
the war it unleashed a beast that a
united Christendom has been trying I
to tame for centuries. Tho crucify- J
ing and burning of Chrl8tiana in Per- j
sta by Kurds and Turks is no sur- ?
price; it was'inevitable. If the Otto
man fangs arc not drawn now and ,
once for all by the allied nations the ?
omission will be tantamount to sane- j
Honing of barbarity by civilization.
Future ages may forgive Germany for
many thlnga that seem unpardonable
today, but lt ts doubtful whether any
neutral or importlal historian will
ever condone the moral offense and
blunder of bidding Islam use tho
scimitar without restraint.
?What ls PoUlcker f
The Transcript sincerely regrets
having aroused the wrath of some of
its most esteemed Southern contem
poraries by a recent light-hearted and
offhand attempt to defino one. of
Dixieland's famous national dishes,
that delectable concoction Vpotlick
er," aa a "houn* dog's ambrosia."
Having already mildly. chastised the
Columbia State for suggesting that
the Transcript hasnt "read" potllck
er, which we maintain ia not the way
to become acquainted with thia cele
brated " riva! of gumbo aoup and
chicken a. la Maryland, we now re
gretfully turn our attention, in self
defense, to the Savannah Press. Says
"The New York Herald ts moved to
ask, 'What ls potlickerr With char
acterise high-browed Ignorance, thc
Boston Transcript undertakes to call
lt 'the houn' dog's ambrosia.' This ls
about as near right aa it Is possible
tor our over-lettered contemporary to
get anything that cornea from the
kitchen, and not from the library
shelf;-" to which the Herald adda:
flt waa only to be expected that this
'houn' dog' reference would start tho
cruel war all over again.
"But can it be that Savannah be
lieves Boston baked beans-Jual be
cause they hold first place In the lit
erature of New England-tome from
the library shelf?"
Evading this clever attempt to draw
a pjbt of beans across the trail, and
returning to our muttons, that ls. to
our poUIcker, we wish to end this
argument once for all by stating that
our definition of potllcker as a houn'
dog's ambrosia ls sabotant tated hy no,
lesa an authority on all matters per
taining to Southern cooking and folk
lore than that noted bon vivant and
raconteur, the lota Col. Tom Ochil

The Arrival of Prosperity.
The sudden spurt of increased bus
iness in Montgomery and other
Southern cities is attributed to the
big advance In cotton, under tue en
couragement of which thousands up
on thousands of bales of cotton held
throughout the winter were turned
loose when cotton went above 9
cents a pound. While undoubtedly
tho advance in cotton stimulated bus
iness in the South, it was only one ot
the factors which has restored pros
perity to the American people.

the cattle raisers of the Middle West
