in spite of the development of more
and more facts to the contrary, and as
part of our long sustained work, of
overcoming even the slightest lingering
wrong impression of the inherent
strength of the South, we recently
asked a number of Southern bankers
for their views of present conditions
in their section in the liglit of the
recent past. In reply we have received
a number of interesting letters, all of
them manifesting the conservatism
which naturally belongs to the element
in the community which has its touch
upon the public pulse and is largely
depended upon to assist in remedying
"Xo notable expansion of activities
of any kind partaking of the nature
of a 'boom' looms upon the horizon
of these bankers. It is well Uhat such
is not the case. In present circumstances
such a manifestation would be
the sure symptom of an unhealthy
state. Some of the letters even reflect J
slowness in the return to normal conditions.

in that. Influences responsible

PETROGRAD IS A WONDER.
City Built by Russia In Defiance of
the Laws of Nature.
It is an amazing monument to the
despotism of tLie czars that Petrograd
has flourished, as it was built, in defiance
of the laws of trade and of nature
herself. As a port it is immeasurably
inferior to Uiga, which has a
much longer open season, for Petro
grad is icebound trom early .November
to the end of April. As a building site
it has been repeatedly and disastrously
flooded by the Neva. The highest
elevation within the bounds of the city
is less than fifteen feet above sea level,
and the cellars have to be baled out
nearly every spring when the ice melts
and the wind blows.
And the rigorous climate constantly
gnaws at walls and columns until the
citj has been twice and thrice rebuilt
by the czars. Many of the most imposing
structures are held together
only by means of iron clamps, and the
huge bowlder on which Teter rides his
bronze horse is ever crumbling away.

resolution. in accordance with a some
, tiiiie custom, was introduced into th<
! Kentucky house of representatives in

i pending in congress. The res<?lw,tioi

position when a hitherto silent mem
. ber from one of the mountain counties
j springing to his feet, exclaimed, "Mr
! Speaker, am I to understand that this
i legislature is undertaking to tell lien
! ry Clay how to vote?" The speakei
I answered that such was the purpori
! of the resolution, at which the mem
j ber from the mountains, throwing ui
' his arms, exclaimed, "Great heaven!'
j and sank into his seat. It is needless
i to add that the resolution was immediI
ately rejected by unanimous vote.
Why She Wasn't There.
An agent approaching a house met a
little boy at tbe gate and asked:
"Is your mother home?"
"Yes. sir," said the boy politely.

lawn and after rapping several times
without receiving an answer returned
to the youth, saying:
