A Worthy Southern Home.
The assertion that a prophet is not
wthout honor save in Iiis own coun
try is true not only of people but of
places. On Saturday afternoon I
drove out to what is known as the
old Cantelou homestead, now owned
and occupied by Mr. S. A. Branson,
and found it to my delight to be one
of those old Southern mansions of
which' the sunny South alone can

at the Cantelou homestead I saw the
rooms occupied by Preston S. Brooks
who made himself famous by defying
Charles Sumner, who in a public
speech reflected upon the South.
One is inclined to believe that
Mother Nature must dearly love the
South for she visits it with the kind

greatest bounty. The stately old trees
which surround the place make a fit

Most people are like the little girl
