The most amazing thing _&ut the
South is the chcapncss of its fertile
,gricultural lands, though one hears
oa every hand that prices have gone
up considerably during the past few
years. They must have bc-cn giving
land away before, for after years of
natioral prosperity and wonderful
strides in local settlement and deve

People r'u:rd $25 an acre as a
pretty st. *:ice for lands which
would be considered very rcasonablc
at three or four times as much under
the same conditions in Colorado, Utah,
Idaho, Washington, or California.
True, the Far Western lands are irri
gated, and irrigation is a sort of mir
acle which, among other things, gives
extraordinary value to land. But we
can compare these fertile Southern
lands with the agricultural districts of
Illinois, Iowa, and other prairie States,
and still they are literally 'dirt cheap.'
There is no way to account for it ex
cept that the process of readjustment,
which has been going on since the
War, has not yet brought Southern
land up to the level of prices prevail
ing in other parts of the United States.

Even in thoser sctions whicii are moSt
densely peopled, and, perhaps, least
favored in natural advantages-Nev
England, for example-there is much
to be done in improving natural con
ditions and opening new opportunities
for successful rural settlement.
But it is not enough to make the
land ready for its highest uses; the
people must also be made ready to
utilize the land. Every boy and girl
should leave the public schools pre
pared to make a living, and to collect
it from mother earth herself, when
they desire to do so. This is distinctly
in line with our great need of increas
ing economic efieiency, and thus en
abling the country to meet the de
mands of increasing population. The
South is beautiful and promising as
it is, but how much more beautiful
and promising it would become with
the adoption of public policies which
would make the utmost of its Patural
advantages and which would train the
rising generation so that they could
realize the best results from the oppor
tunities thus opened to them!

The tablets, statues, monuments and
other memorials which are finding
place in rapidly increasing numbers
upon these historic battlefields have
been erected in some instances by the
Congress of the United States, but in
a majority of cases the expense has
been defrayed by States or by veteran
or patriotic organizations. Some of the
memorials are mute testimonials to
the bravery of fallen comrades, while
others are tributes to the command
ers conspicuous in this engagement
or that. However, the matter does not
stop here and of late many commemo
rative masterpieces of sculpture have
been installed to mark in each in

The production of great numbers of
these battlefield memorials has re
suite(, in another Yankee scheme for
saving time and labor, namely, the in
troduction of sculpture by machinery.
Formerly all the statues carved from
marble or granite had to be slowly
and laboriously chiseled by hand. Un
der the new ordier of things all this
is changed and mechanically operated
tools cut away the hard material and
carve, in the stone, representations of
human figures, lettering, etc., in a frac
ion of the time that would be required
for the same work under the old
Many angenious Tools.
The tools which are instrumental in
performing this ingenious sculpture
by machinery are what are known as
pneumatic tools, that is, they are op
erated by compressed air instead of
by steam or electricity. The type most
commonly used might be described as
a combination hammer and chisel, and
how much more speedily such can
work than could a workman with the
old-fashioned chisel and hammer may
be appreciated when it is stated that
by means of the compressed air the
hammer is madec to strike hundreds
of blows per minute.
In this mechanical chiseling the
pneumatic tool, which is a portable
iece of apparatus, is held1 in the hand
of a workmian and by him guided
ack and forth on the stone surface
wherever cutting is to be done. The
compressed air :s led to the tool
through a rubber hose, aud the oper
atrcnwith the utmost ease and
at a momeni's notice :regulate the
force of the hammier blows according
to the decpth of the cutting required.
Moreover dlifferent styles of pneu
matic tools are p-rovidled for the va
rious classes of work to be performed
in producing a statue or other monu
ment. For instance, there is one tool
for light carving, tracing and letter
ing on granite, and a different one for
heavy carving and large raised letters.
The tools require from five to seven
cubic feet of free air per minute to
operate them. In the battlefield memo
rils now being erected in many 10
ilities figures of soldiers, mounted
or on foot. are introduced in great
numbers, but there is also extensive
use of representations of cannon, can

In Old Ireland.
In connection with what is known
as the "Irish revival," an interesting
work has been started by Irish ladie;
in a village close by Dublin.
Three industries were selected,
namely, the printing of books, embroid
ering on Irish linen and the weaving
of tapestry and carpets; and some
exquisiLe work has been produced.
One of the leading ideas of the pro
moters has been to produce things
which will be recognized as Irish both
in style and design. In the carpets,
for exaimple, all ordinary patterns arc

Why We are Right.Handed.
Why do we use the right hand in
preference to the left?
An anatomist, who has studied the
question very closely, says that it is
largely a matter of heredity. The
early races of men must have used the
right hand in fighting, reserving the
left to cover the left side of the body,
where wounds-as their experience
showed them-were the more danger
ous. This more frequent use of the
right hand would react upon the brain,
bringing about a special development
of that part which controls the right
