C. K. Lewis, president, Mrs. E.
L. Kidd, secretary, and Mrs. W.

The South's Claim.
Incident to a logical exposition
of the availability of a Southern
Democrat for President in 1908,
and a survey of the field of possi
bilities, a writer in the North
Amel can Review makes a pert
inent, if poetic, comment upon
the South's political status. Is
it not a fact, he asks, that all
Northern Democrats, all Inde
pendents, and many large-minded
Republicans. are conv/inced that
the time has come to Juake a
Southern man Chief Magistrate?
Must we not acknowledge that
the South, although nominally
restored to the full privileges of
States in the Union when she was
permitted to send Senators and
representatives to Congress, . is
still partially dcsfranchised so
long as her sons are debarred
from the highest honor in the gift
of the Republic? - Shall we ever
witness a veritable union-not of
force and law, but of hearts
until with cordial concurrence of
a large part of the North a
Southern man become Chief Mag
istrate? The question is an
swered this wise:
"When a Southern man takes
possession of the White House,
then indeed will the white lowers
of concord and mutual affectiqn
bloom above our battlefield, and
the last drop of bitterness be
purged from-the sad memories of
raternal warfare. Then, iadeed,
will peace smole upon the land,
and equity lift its bead trium
phant. We profess iq the North
to have forgiven the Soth, but
not yet can. we claimn to have
biought forth fruits meest for'
forgivenes. They profess in the
outh-,-ad they proved in 1898
that the pro(ession was sincore
to have accepted aceomplished
facts, and to have acquiesced
loyally in a Union which they
failed to subvert. Their recog
nition deserves acknowledgment,
and their loyalty reward. That
reward can only take - one ade
quate, one convincing, ope de
cisive form-the elevation of a
Southern man to the Presideney
of the United States."
That is a sentimental though
forceful presentment of fact and
logic. Nothing, ln the ordinary
course of events, could promote
a more powerful unanimity of
national spirit or more substan
tial concrrence of thou it than
a magnanimous reeognition by
the whole eountry of the South's
acquiescence and loyalty. by se

The Signal, some few weeks!
ago, took occasion to refer to the I
good work done by Conresman
Watkins in his efforts in behalf I
of soil surveys, the establishing I
of free delivery routes, sad in A
proialing the cause of good'
roead in the different parishes of I
the district. Recently he made a I
very song speech in Congrees j
urging the. passage of the 4ri
oultural Appropriation Bill which
carned a large appropriation for I
the extermination of the boll I
weevil and the Texas cattle tick,
the latter having become as great
a menace to tho cattle, industry a
of the State as the former is to
our ootton growing interest.
That his efforts along these lines
are appreciated, especially byu
the agricultural interest of the
State; is evidenced by the fol
lowing flattering letter published
below which explans itself:

The Summer Normal.
It is about two weeks now until
the Summer Normal School,
under the auspices of the State
Board of Education, will open in
Winnfield for a four weeks'
sessidn. Teachers from all. the
adjoining parishes will be here.
President Mathis of the school
board and Superintendent Moss
have had pnnted a neat folder
setting forth in a splendid way
the advantages of Winnfield from
a teacher's standpoint and invit
ing them to come here, and these
folders were sent to the superin
tendents in the adjacent parishes
to be handed out among the
teachers and it is conidentiall
expected that many of them will
attend. It is up to the people
here to provide for them. They
will pay their expenses, but they
are entitled to social attentions
and all the courtesies we are able
to bestow. They are the best
people to be found and re'a elas
whose inluence we need. Let aus
make their stay here so pleasant
that they will want to come agala
and will always have a good word
to say for Winnfield.
