Sectionalists who desire to create for
themselves a field of operations and an
income in a charming and healthful
southern climate not infrequently tvrite
very touching articles for the northern
press on the deplorable condition of the
"mountain whites' of the south and the
need of "mission work" among them.
Such persons, in descriptions of life
among the mountains of western North
Carolina and east Tennessee, "pile on
the agony" in a marvelous manner. Some
times they do it with an utter disregard
for the truth. They represent the excep
tion to be the rule, and picture scenes
and conditions common enough in parts
of the north and west perhaps, large
cities as well as country places, but very
rare among the people of the Appalachian
region of the south. One would think
from their accounts that the southern
mountains were swarming with cave
dwellers. The aim seems to lie to per
petuate the ideas of that class of philan
thropists who find a peculiar pleasure in
contemplating poverty, ignorance and
degradation in the south since the civil
Not long since The Sun noticed an ap
peal of this sort for aid to "mission work
for mountain whites," showing' that it
was in effect a libel upon the people it
professed to describe. Any person fa
miliar with the Appalachian region of
the south would see at a glance how ab
surd the whole thing was. The Christian
Union for Dec. Si, 10, contains a letter
from Ilev. D. Atkins, a Methodist minis
ter of Henderson ville, N. C, winch com
pletely demolishes the "mountain whit"'
myth. Mr. Atkins will be conceded to
know what he is writing abont. He was
bora and reared in the alleged God for
saken region of iiovortv, ignorance, vice
and degradation. He entered colleare
there, entered the ministry there and
pent 17 years there as minister and
"As a Methodist minister," hesavs, "I
have gone into the most out of the way
places and mingled freely with all sorts
of people in 20 counties of North Caro
lina and Virginia and in nearly all Ih?
worst parts of east Tennessee. I have
visited these people at their homes, have
eaten with them. sl"pt in their houses
and seen them in every condition." Ye;
Mr. Atkins has not onco beheld the slum
scenes Mrs. Taddock described in a re
cent number of Tho Christian Union.
"Your correspondent," he savp. "must
have found some secluded SHt I never
saw, for in all my travels I never saw
the things she writes of, and it sosti.
strange that I should not even lv-ve
heard of such things in all these years
There is poverty here and ignorance, too,
but neither is in that prevalent form you
would suppose from the anirle of Mrs.
Paddock. You might live here an r.ge
and never hear of such savage and weird
funeral customs as Professor Bern Is. an
other correspondent writing from the
south, told vour readers about."
The situation is not such as was de
scribed bv The Union's correspondents.
Putting it in a nutshell. Mr. Atkins says
of Mrs. radducVs picture: "She has pre
sented the very wor.it possible case that
cor.Id lo found in the remotest part and
made it a sample of all the 2.000.000 here.
so th;it if ;.y one should receive eu im
pression from such writing he would sup
pose no other kind of people could be
As a mutter of fact, the "mountain
whites" are not a distinct class. Their
ancestors, says Mr. Atkins, were not out
laws, but pioneers from the coast coun
try. They generally own their farms and
make a comfortable living. To say they
hunt for a living is absurd. There is lit
tle wealth and not as much luxury as
might be, but the people live decently.
There are some log houses, three-fourths
of which have windows. None are plas
tered with mud, as alleged, or without
wooden floors. But few have only one
room. Generally the houses are quite
comfortable. All have good open fire
places. Fuel is abundant and costs noth
ing, so that the coiTe'-'iondenfs story of
children"covering their limbs with warm
ashes to keep from freezing" is specially
absurd. The people, Mr. Atkins afiirms,
axe already religious and moral. They ob
serve Sunday and attend Sunday school.
There is scarcely a district where there is
not a school for at least three months in
the year. Few persons are unable to read
and write, and such cases are so rare as
to excite surprise among the neighbors.
As respects the girls who were de
scribed as overworked and vicious, M.r.
Atkins says not one in a hundred would
know herself by that description. "The
common virtues," he pays "chastity,
honestv. truthfulness, etc. are rather
more prevalent than in other sections 1
have seen. The gills are healthy, strong
and full of spirit. They marry at a good
age, make excellent wives and mothers,
and do much less hard work than their
sisters of the no-rih and west," and Mr.
Atkins spent four years in the west.
They do not work in the field. "It is by
no means, says the writer, "tne custom
of the country. Home life is as pure a
it is anywhere I have been. In a word
the "mountain white," with his abyemal
tlezradation, is mvth and needs no
"mission." Baltimore Sun.

Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Xarcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is the Children's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
" Castoria Is n excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Dr. G. C. Osgood,
Caytorla is the best remedy for children of
which I r.m acquainted. I hope the day U not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of therariousquack nostrums which are
destroying their loTcd ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
accnts down their throats, thereby sending
Uiem to premature graves."

" Cfistoria is so well adapted to children that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription

Hi So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. T.
" Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only nave among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that th
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."
