South Gatting There.
The South is destined to become
the richest and greatest section ot
these United States. All she has to
do Is to sit steady in the boat and
ply with industry and intelligence,
and this she has done for the last
fifty years, nearly. As Grit says "not
quite "fifty years ago she emerg
ed from a devastating war which left
It prostrate and helpless. Billions
of dollars fh wealth had been swept
out of existence and grim poverty
stalked from the Gulf of Mexico to
the Mason and Dixon iine. The flow*
er of its manhood slept In soldier's
graves on many a stricken field, and
with its social and industrial struc
ture shattered to the jljoiundation,
the survivors of that terrific strug
gle faced a future rayless of hope.

new political land economic life, a
new social organisation nad to be
created from corner stone to turret.
It was a task begun under the spur
of .biting poverty in desperate de
fense of rf?ce integrity. And the
triumphant accomplishment of this
long painful task, unique in the his
tory of the world, can be read to
day In the serried ranks of statis
tics that are how dribbling from the
This is (a splendid tribute to the
recuperative power of the South, hut
listen tp this tribute from the same
paper to the Confederate soldier, who
came home overpowered and dis
couraged, after four years of devast
ating war, to ruined homes and
changed conditions., to make an effort
to rebuild the waste places of his
beloved South. We will let Grit tell
how well he did it. "Brilliant las has
been the South's record in war anu
long a3 its list of great statesmen,"
says Grit, "neither compares in pro
found significance, in the romance
and drama of history, with the story
of those patient, tireless state-build
ers, working most of them Id hum
ble obscurity, who have within the
past forty years created a/new and
greater South. Some day the story
of those lean and hungry years,
years of heart-breaking struggle
crowned with ultimate success, may
find a sympathetic and adequate
The Confederate soldier, who, as
some one has said, stepped from the
trenches into furrow, laid the funda
tion stones for the present and fu
ture prosperity of the South "Had
these men failed when the war end
ed to meet the changed conditions
and make the best of them, the South
would have been ruined forever. But
the brave fellows who had achieved
immortal glory as soldiers, achieved
a greater glory, if that were possible
as state builders. But let us see
what the South is doing. As Grit
says, agriculture is the basis of all
prosperity, and it is upon the control,
direct or indirect, of the products of
field ?nd farm that national power
hinges. In the last analysis, national
power and agricultural resources and
development are synonymous terms.
And It Is upon agriculture as a found
ation that the South is making its
Within the past 5 yeaTs the value
of the farm crops of the South have
more than doubled, showing a great
er gain than any other section of the
country. Pix million acres have been
added to the cotton crop area, a gain
of twenty per cent, and the increase
in the production of other staple
crops Is equally startling. In the
value of farm crops Texas now leads
all other states of the Union, its gain
since the census of 1900 being 140
per cent., or more than two hundred
million dollars. Georgia also has
made great gains in agricultural pro
duction and now ranks fourth, in
stead of fourteenth, as In the Twelfth
census. And every state of the New
S??th tells a similar story of pros
perity founded upon agricultural de
velopment. As Grit says "it 1b the
beginning of a new era in the na
tion's life In which the balance of
power both political and industrial,
will drift from the rich and populous
North! towards the new South." That
is true, and is the great fact upon
which we base the assertion made in
the opening paragraph of this arti
But, as Grit goes on to say, "it
is not alone in agriculture that the
South has made wonderful progress.
The statistics of manufacturing in
dustry, mining and railroad construc
tion and operation shows gains in
excess of those registered in any oth
er part of the country. The invest
ment of new capital, the building of
manufacturing plants, the opening of
mines, the increase in capital, sav
ings, and population all show that at
last the South is coming into Its her
itage. With natural and diversified
resources unequalled in richness in
any other part of the world, re
sources a mere fraction of which has
as yet been utilized, the future is
bright and glowing with promise for
Dixie. It is a future in which the en
tire nation will share. To-morrcw
belongs to the South." Don't forget
this, young man. and when you are
tempted to go West, remember that
the South is the coming, section of
this great country. Stay right here.
Pull off your coat and go to work,
and sucsess Is sure to come. Besides,
the South needs you to help her work

A Menace to Health.
One of the greatest menaces to the
health of this or any o'her commun
it >? i* the dangerous surface'closet,
and they should bo abolished as
soon as possible. Those who still
j use them, not only menaces the
health of themselves and family, but
the health of all th^ir neighbors. The
j health of a community is one of its
! most valuable assets, and every mem
j ber of it should do what he can to
observe it and keep it ;as good as pos
sible. As we come to understand
more about disease and its preven
tion certain preventable disease
should be banished from all intelli
More interest is being taken in
health conditions than formerly 'all
over the country. The health author
ities of Raleigh, N. C, have declared
war upon the dangerous surfaee clos
et with a general educative move
ment among property owners as the
plan of campaign. The health de
partment of Wilmington has obtained
statistics which prove .beyond reas
onable doubt that a large majority
of r.he cases of typhoid fever which
have- been reported in that city this
summer were caused by the golden
opportunity which the surface clos
ets offer the ubiquitous house-fly. All
typhoid fever, we. believe, is trace
able to some such cause.
Oxford, which 13 not considered
one of the larger cities of the old
North State, is being praised by the
press of that State for adopting an
ordinance which will do away with
the old fashioned surface closets al
together. It may not be possible foi
Dur entire population to secure sew
er connections, but it is possible for
those Who can't to abolish the sur
face closets and install in Its place
a sanitary closet that is fly proof.
Another great menace to the health
of a community is horse and cow
stables. They should be thoroughly
cleaned out at least once a week, and
the compost scattered in the sun to
kill the germs.
The Charlotte Observer says "com
ing generations will look black upon
the present one as remarkable in
many ways but its indifference to the
prevalence of preventable dlser..-?-s
will"serve as a reminder that it has
not entirely outgrown certain medi
eval inheritances. The fight for im
proved sanitary arrangements must
not be left entirely to the medical
profession. By the necessities of the
case the doctors must lead th/e fight
but the laymen in the ranks will find
plenty to do. In the matter under
discussion the advance will be meas
ured almost exclusively by the
amount of interest manifested by the
