Makes Greater Progress Than
Any Other Section.
Tlie f;icl with reference to south
ern development contained in a
bulletin issued ly tin? Manufacturers
Record of Baltimore under date of
Dec. 2, leave no room for dou!t
Willi regard to the steady progress
of the South. Adjectives and super
latives might In- indulged in freely
.and excusably in connection with
some of the evidences of prosperity
in Pixie, but the plain figures arc
eloquent and impressive enough.
Just a few examples: The popula
tion of the South has increased since
1SS0 from IG.tMV.V.lCO to 27,-J37,NO)
a gain of 1 1 ,01',7,'S 11), or 07. G per
cent; and in that time, also, using
round figures, the value of property
has grown from 7,(XX),000.(XK.) to
821,00,0(X),(XX; capital in manu
facturing from ?2"7,vXX),000 to 82,
000,000,000; value of manufactured
products from 9 l.-)7,000,00 to 2,
('7',(XX,IXX); value of products of
the soil from fGI.O.tXXJ.CXXJ to 2
,r00,000,(XX); aggregate resources of
national banks from 1171,400,000
to 81,777,000,000; capital of nat
ional banks from 84G,(00,000 to
lGS,2")0,0tX); deposits in state sav
ings and private banks from $S3,
400,000 to $(524,000,000.
All these advances are not, per
haps, equal to those made in some
other sections of the country, but
many of the gains in the South will
compare favorably with those made
in sections that have developed most
rapidly. Details arc' not entered in
to here, but some of them deserve
special mention, as, for instance,
the tremendous strids that the South
has made iu mineral and oil pro
duction. In the production of coal
alone the gain in twenty years has
leen equal to 1271.9 per cent.
In railroad construction, in city
building, in all manner of material
improvement, the South has kept
pace with the rest of the country,
notwithstanding the handicaps from
which it suffered at the beginning
of its prosjK'rity ; and one of the
pleasantest items in the summary of
its achievements is the fact that the
expenditures on its common schools
have increased in the last two de
cades from 89,790,040 to $44,035,
732, or by $34,239,092, equal to
349.5 per cent.
Rentoul Points Out
Lifes Fourteen Mistakes.
Judge Rentoul of the City of Lon
don court, in addressing the mem
bers of the Bartholomew club at
Anderton's hotel in Fleet street on
"The Fourteen Mistakes of Life,"
said pathetically: "I think I have
the greatest fitness for speaking on
this subject, ttecause I havecommit-
. ted every one of them." And this
was the list he gave:
To expect to set up our own stand
ard of right and wrong, and expect
everylmdy Ui conform to it.
To try to measure the enjoyment
of others by our own.
lo expect uniformity of opinion
in this world.
To look for judgment and exper
ience in youth.
To endeavor to mold all disposi
Not to yield in unimportant trifles.

Allowance ran Wkakxkssics
To worry ourselves and others
about what cannot In? remedied.
Not to alleviate if we can all that
Not to make allowances for the
weaknesses of others.
To consider anything impossible
that we cannot ourselves perform.
. To believe only what our finite
minds can grasp.
To Uveas if the inonfint, the time

To estimate people by some out
side quality, for it is that within

Land in Brazil.
Just below Cape Frio; not forty
miles troin mo le Janeiro, there is
a large tract of land, once a big faz
enda, that wis recently purchased
by a Japanese syndicate for coloniz
ing pui x)scs 1 he syndicate stands
high in mining, transportation and
other enterprise at home and its
purchase of Brazilian farming land
may be taken to indicate a revival
of Japan's Latin-American jwlicy,
notwithstanding the pronounced
failures of her past colonizing ven
tures in Brazil. Many reasons have
lecn assigned for these failures, an
important one Ix'ing the stand taken
by -the Brazilian coffee planters
against the introduction of Japanese
methods. The present scheme in-
ludcB rice culture on a large scale,
nr which the purchased fazenda is
to a large extent adapted; but other
cereals will also le cultivated. Ow
ing to the proximity of Rio de Ja
neiro, which can be easily reached
from Cape Frio by the Loioldina
railroad, market gardening on a
large scale is planned by the syndi-
ite, and in view of the exceptional
prices for vegetables in the capital,
there should be in this good returns.
Of course the syndicate expects to
introduce into Brazil several of the
products largely grown in Japan,
such as vanilla.
Competition with other colonists
seems to 1.x; unimportant except on
the fishing grounds in the immediate
neighborhood of the proposed col
ony, these are ot exceptional im
portance and the monopoly there
has hitherto been held by Portuguese
fisherman. But this circumstance
serves to bring out the nature of the
position that the Japanese colonists
will occupy in Brazil. There is no
bar to the mingling of races and the
Mongolians are welcome to contri
bute to the stock of future Brazil. If
this is an inducement for Japanese
surplus population to settle in that
great country, where they are ap
parently welcome, there is no reason
why they shojild not in time, pcr-
uips in a relatively short time, draw
after them an element capable of
rising to a commanding position
politically. The presence of a large
negro and mulatto population in
many parts of Brazil, as well as a
considerable remnant of alnjriginal
ndians, and the attitude of the
settlers of Portuguese descent toward
both, have led some observers to de
tect m Brazilian conditions the in
cipient stage of a caste system, some
what similar, from a racial pointvof
view, to that of India. In such a
compact Japanese element might
reasonably be expected to attain
great power through monopolizing
certain fields of activity, as, for ins
tance, the army, and navy, while the
Mongolian's inability or refusal to
letach himseif definitely from the
mother country would bring a factor
into South American affairs that
might make the Monroe doctrine
ook out of date. How rapidly such
matters are apt to develop can be
seen from the history of Japanese
labor in Hawaii 'and Chinese immi
gration into Peru and other Latin-
American regions, it would seem
that there never was a more urgent
call than at this time for the devel
opment of large American interests

in the Bowery.
It is questionable if in the entire
round of his traveling and his sjMech-
niaking President Taft was ever 1n
fore confronted by an audience that
called for more careful consideration
than that to which he was present
ed in a mission oi the Aew lurk
Bowcrydistrict. It would have been
an easy thing, under the circum
stances, to have sermonized, but
the President displayed ln tter judg
ment and more delicacy than this
would have called for, and remem-
ercd that he was President of the

That the Hation's chief should
appear in jK-rson before such an
audience with a message of encour-
igenicnt and good cheer is not with
out its significance. It can hardly
fail to effect its subtle uplift. "I
am glad to le here," said President
Taft, "if by being here and saying
so I can convince you that the so
called chasm between you and those
who seem for the time lcing to be
more fortunate is not so much of a
chasm after all, and that there is
between them and you a deep feel
ing of sympathy on their part and
an earnest desire tlmt you shall have
that equality of opportunity, of get
ting on your feet, of .earning a de
cent livelihood and supporting your
families, which we hope every man
ho lives under the stars ami stripes
It may seem to the cynical a far
cry Irom the Jsowery mission loilg-
ng house to anything that is entitled
to 1m1 classed as opportunity, but
very certain it is that thu distance
not shortened "by doubt or by
pessimism. It it is ever to he cover

Where is the
A sketch of "The New Hawaii"
in the Pacific Monthly for November
tells how three reverend dames of
the old nobility of the island came
to pay fealty to the governor. Dress
ed in the white trailing robe that is
the ordinary dress of the -Hawaiian
women, they waited for an audience.
Itch clasped firmly in hand two
small paper bags. They smiled
brightly at new comers, full of good
cheer. Presently the office door
opened ami they were ushered into
the presence of Gov. Walter F.
Frear, who gave them .the native
greeting, Aloha." 1 here the bags
were presented to him with due cere
mony and proved to contain eggs
and limes. These were tribute to
their ruler and their coming so in
dicated that at last they had laid
aside their old enmity and accepted
voluntarily the white man as chief.
When the people in old times were
received in audience by their king
or chief they gave him such little
offerings as the women bring today
to the American governor.
NOT SO BAD.

burgh, though a way clever man,

attended, he said, according to the

How many sides has a circle?
Two," said the student. Indeed!
What are they?"
What a laugh in the eoilrt the
student's answer produced whcii he
promptly said :
"An inside and an outside."
The doctor next inquired: And
you attend the moral philosophy
i t(.t . . K... .i
class, alsof " ies." Well, you
doubtless heard lectures on various
subjects. Did you ever hear one on
cause and effect?" "Yes." "IXx
an effect ever go before a cause?"
"Yes," "Ciive me an instance.'

The doctor hastily sat down am
roposed no more questions.
