Once tipproprlntcil to tlie service of the
Confederacy ns n buttle song, Us use
nnd populnrlty nrn now national in fstct,
one fenrs It tltc xvorlil over. Few know
tho words of "tM'do," yet so eontnelmisl
pleasing is it music that It has becomo
song without words of universal n
real. Mnnv stories are related, with more
or less authority by the tellers, as to
Jio the sons came to tie composed
nnl os to the origin nnd significance of
the word "Dlcl." There Is, however,
no douht ns to Its authorship tt wnt
written by Daniel Deer.-ur Ummett In lsM
while he wna n member of Itrynnt's
Minstrels, whose theatre tvas at 4T2
The story of how It came to he writ
ten was oftvii told by Emmett I'nder
Ms cuntiiut he was obliged, whenever
called upon, to compost a new "walU
nmund ' to ho tui( lit the close of each
rcrfoinutnce. Jt was on one of these
occnslous that he wrote ' Dixie" on very
Khmt ni tier, as he said. It was first
eunf. as extant pwsrnms show, on Sep
temlier i:. 1V). A program of that date
le.nls ' The performance to conclude with
Dan r:minett's orUlnnl plantation onR
ami d;itK. 'PIio-s Land." Introducing the
whole ttoupe In their festival dance."
As to the origin and significance of
the word "Dixie," Jtr. Ummett said
that it was sUGKostett to him In this
way: As soon aa cold, wintry weather
set In up North the minstrels of his
company would wish themselves bark
In Dixie's Land. On a very cold il.iy
It was common for thntn to say long
ingly. "O' I wish I was In Dixie's
Land." As to the meaning of the
word "Dixie" as thus inert it was
vaguely supposed to be a diminutive
of "Dlon." denoting nny place south
of Muhon and Dixon's lino.
Another authority, the New York
JIusleoI Age, long extinct, had con
nected It with one Dixie, a Long Island
farmer, who harbored runaway female
slaves and treated them so kindly that
his asylum btcame known fur nnd wld
among the Negroes: hence, when, from
time to time, the wife of a slave would
make a iuctessful "getaway" and reach
Dixies the word went around that she
was in "Dixie Land."
Another widely accepted version was
based upon an old New York tradition
anent a man ameil Dixie who owned a
tract of land on Manhattan Island. He
was the owner of many slaves, whom
he treated so kindly that Dixie's was
regarded ns a sort of Negroes' para
dise In course of time he sold all his
tlaes to Southern planters, and there
after they used to wish themselves back
at Dixie s, and so Dixie, or Dixie Land.
became a svnonym for a place or state
of perpetual happiness
An old resident of New York tells of
a game tailed "Dixie Land," which ho
used to play many years before the Civil
War. The game was to run upon your
opponent's section and then taunt the
catcher with a song running somewhat
as follows:
I'm on Dixie's land, DKIe ain't at home,
Dixie's cone tlhlng, Dixie can't come.
Another curiouo conjecture as to the
origin of the word "Dixie" Is current
among Loulsinntans, who aver that the
word "Dl" was printed on the $10 bank
notes which the New Orleans banks had
made In Paris. They were always re
ferred to as "Dixies," and so Southerners
luvay from home and in low water flnan
ciallv would sigh regretfully for "Dixie
Land ' and wish themselves back theie.
But whatever the origin of the word
"Dix-.e" mav havo been the song "Dixie"
first sprang Inio popularity In New Or
leans in the fall of U where it was
sung in a theatre at the close of a snec-
tacu.ai peiformante by a troupe of young
women dressed as zouaves. Its success
was lncstantaneous, and from tho Cres
cent f'lty it rapidly sprtad to Confederate
battlefields, soon becoming firmly estab
lished as the Southern war song.
It Ie said that a New York band, Men
ter's, brought the sons back with thorn
from New Orleans, whither they had gone
on an invitation of tho New Orleans Are
companies, to play in a parado of the
Fire Department.
Thus this wonderful sons, composed,
by a Northern man with Northern sym
pathies, so fired the hearts and Imagina
tion of Southerners that In less than a
ear, by the end of 1C0, it wus plated
tho length and breadth of the South
land, arousing the wildest enthusiasm
wherever heard It was even sung at the
inauguration of Jefferson Davis in Mont
gomery, Ala., In 1WU. The tune soon
"caucht on" with Northerners and its
words were Unionized, there being sev
eral versions with the original wording
changed to stirring t'nlon sentiments.
The foiis as Emmett originally wrote it
Is to be found In old sen.' books.
Daniel Decatur Emmett was born at
Mount Vernon, O , in 1$U. and there he
dl-d in mi Ills Irish grandfather
served in the wor of the revolution, and,
his father, an Indian agent, fought in
the war of 1S1J. "Pan." while still la his
teens, composed the once popular "Old.
Dan Tucker " After a short military
career he Joined a circus, and in 110.
with four others, organized the "Vir
ginia Minstrels," who first pued at
Turdy's Theatre In the Bowery. Emmett
spent several years in Chicago, tie mode

The publication of his song "Pixie'
was followed by many imitations. On
the heels o fit in 10 cams "l Wish I
Vjs In Dixie," by J. JVwcomb, the
words being almost the same as Em-mt-tfs.
Then came the martial version by Gen
eral Albert I'ike, first published in the
National Courier early in laSJ. The first
stanza ran'

Behavior Is Good in Public, in
Homes and in School, Says
Miss Alice Cleason, Missionary
flood behavior nf Mexican peoplp, In
public, In Ihelr homes and In school, Is
vouched for by Miss Alice Cllenson, who
has had much experience among them as
a teacher In schools conducted In the
southern nation by the Congregational
missionary etnbtlshment of the I'nlteil
States. Miss Cllenson olso. In the nceoni
panlng Inter. lew, published In the Chris
tian Science Monitor, describes the readi
ness of Mexican children nt learning nnd
the eagerness of adults of the large and
growing middle class for advancement
"I have never met better dressed or
mure cultured people than I have mot In
Mexico I have never found people who
weie more courteous or more loyal to
the person" they really liked." This Is
what Miss Alice Oleason said to a Moni
tor representative who had asked what
the people of Mexico were like. For 11
years Miss Ulenaon has been teaching In
Mexico ns principal of the Instltuto Co
rona. In Guadalajara. This Institution Is
a mission bonirtlng school for girls, estab
lished by the American Board of Com
missioners for Foreign Missions about 30
years ngo.
"Yis, there N much that Americans can
learn from tin Mexicans." Miss c.leason
continued. "The trouble Is that Ameri
cans come Into the country and make no
attempt to conform to Mexican tiistnin
and Ideas, and et we expect that aliens
who ouno Into the I'nited States t'j live
will adapt themselves to American cus
toms and ideas.
"Mexicans uro naturally polite, in
their homes they aro very considerate
of one another. No business man would
ever think of passing a day without
gulng to see his patents nnd grand
parents. The mothers are tho most de
oted mothers I have over seen and tho
fathers lov their chtldicn dearly, too.
Children have great lespect for their
parents nnd for all persons older than
themselves. Being courteous Is the nat
ural way of living among the natives.
And yet I have again and again seen
Americans who would not take tho
trouble to sat 'Good morning' to a Mexi
can. And when I hnvo asked such per
son to bo more courteous to my natlvo
teachers, servants and friends, they havo
answered. "But whv should wo be so
polite. Thc are only Mexicans:'
"As for inv.-olf, I would ruther teach
M0 Mexicans than American children.
No Mexican pupil would think of an
swering a teacher without beginning his
answer with tho word 'Senor, or
Stnorita.' They are respectful always.
They would rather tell you something
that is not true, although knowing that
you will tlnd It out 1j minutes later,
than to say a thing that would possibly
hurt your feelings,"
"What kind of students do Mexicans
make'.'" Miss Gleaeon was asked.
"Better thun most people Imagine Tha
snyln-! that it is Impossible to tenth a,
Mexican an, thing Is absurd. I will ad
mit that they aro slow about learning
some things, but that is because they
have never been taught to apply them
selves. Tiny don't like to upply them
selves. Thev don't like to work hard,
but that is not strange, considering thlr
past history. Yot they can memorize
anything and they love to do It.
"The subjects they don't like are arith
metic and nlcebra and whatever requires
fctendy, concentrated thinking. They are
very fond of history, nnd they love to
write compositions and to learn pieces.
They will spend hours and hours re
hearsing plavs and drills when they are
getting ready for some fiesta. Day after
day they will keep It up. I nexcr saw
suth perseverance. Many a time thev
have tried to keep rehearsals a set ret
so thev tould surprise mo with the pro
gram when it was tinlshed.
"Hut what Mexicans seem to be best
adapted to Is industrial art. They can
do anything with their hands. Last year
we put dressmaking Into our school
courses and courses In manual training,
the way the girls love that work. Ml
their sowing and drnwn work is excellent
I believe that If mislon schools In Mex
tro had begun by giving domestic si !en
courses and coursese in manual tialning
Inatead of having the curriculum conslrt
f nearly all aodemlc subjects, their
progresH would have been greater.
"The Government is beginning to rut
manual training Into the boys' si hnols
now, and I think It Is a splendid Idea.
Domestic science courses would fit the
girls to be wonderful servants. Tnder the
present ststem prai finally tho onlv course
open to a Mexican girl after she leaves
school Is to teach or get married
Lately soma of them have become
bookkeepers and stenographers. We have
a commercial course In our sehool that
gives the necessary preparation, but I
do not approve of the idea in general of
girls going into business in M xlcn a.i
otllee helpers The country Is not ready
yet for such an arrangement."
"Has trie type of pupils In your school
changed In the last dozen years?"
"Oh, ys, decidedly. At Hrst we got
only children from tho Vry poorest fam
ilies. Each yeai the children have ber u
coming from better families, and this
jear e had more children from good
families than ever before. The peop.e
wer afraid of us at first, but now ttjey
have lost that feeling to a large extent
""hey are willing to trust their children
With us. and this we consider n great
gain, for the place Is decidedly fanatical.
"What kind of a city is Guadalajara?"
"Delightful. It is built on a iin-su a
mile above sea level and U surrounded
by mountains The name applied to tt
in the Pearl of the West. It has a popu
lation of lWri and is la the midst of
an agricultural country. T..8 tempera
ture never goes above 8 and hardly ver
gets down to freezing. We have oranges,
limes, bananas, strawberries, beans. let
tuce, radishes, onions and squash the
year around
"The cit is lighted by ilectiint) You
will find electric light in almost the
poorest house. The houses are built of
adobe and theni cemented and. painted.
The electric eatv arc eooU. Th. drainage
system Is one of tho finest I know any
thing about."
"What Is tho greatest present need of
the Mexican people?"
"Education. I wish the kind of educa
tion that Is being given boys nnd girls
In the fnltert States could be put Into
every school In Mexico. There Is now rt
large middle class growing Up In Mexico
who want everything at once without
understanding what It Is.
"Thev do not know the real meaning
of political liberty. They must bo taught
to know what It means; the hoys and
girls should be taught It In the schools.
But It ipcm as If you would almost havo
ta find the seed for the plant, so remote
Is political liberty from anything In their
knowledge and experience. They nre a
lovnl people, but they nre not yet lilted
for democracy. They must have educa
tion first."

Thtee days after tho shooting Austria
demanded thnt Servla Investigate, on her
own soil, tho shooting of the Archduke.
Servln replied: "Prlnzlp wna a Servian,
It Is true, but he left Servla nnd went to
Bosnia, where ho committed the deed.
What has Servla to do with the affair?"
Then Austiln began on Investigation of
her own. What this Investigation was,
how It was carried on, what punishment
Wnti meted out to Prlnzlp Is n secret of
the Austrian couit. It Isn't known pub
licly whether Prlnzlp Is dend nr alive to
know the terrible consequences of his
deed. King Petej. of Servln, was Inde
pendent In the extreme. "Servla Is nn In
dependent country. It la nlso a Stnv
country," he said In effect. "Austria has
no alio over Us. Tho United States
might ni well dictate to England ns
Austrian Hungary to Servla " But Austria-Hungary
was firm. Translated
Into common talk, Austria-Hungary said:
'Servla Is Slav nnd nntl-Tcutonlc. For
Hint reason it Is against Austria-Hungary.
Seivln permit!) Hn rlllzens to speak
against Austila-Hungnry and In try to
peisuitde the Slavs In Austria-Hungary to

It is another mystery of the courts of
Europe why Austria-Hungary hushed tho
matter as she did. There are two sides
to etery story and the Aiistro-Hungarlnn
side has. not yet been told. For tome
ten ho n, however, Austrla-Hiingnry de
cldttl that now wn the time, for good
and fnr nil. to put the quietus; on the
orthodox Seibs who aro constantly nt
outs with tho Catholics, Teutons nnd
Hungarians, and to settle tho religious

that her Investigation had proved that
Prlnzlp bought his revolver from Ser
vian army officers who were members of
a strong secret snclety In Servla nnd that
STVlnn t'tistnin men hnd helped Prlnzlp
across the border Into Bosnia.
Euiopean statesmen went on about their

By Individual Buyers
The day before this is written September 1 5 the sale3
made to users on the HUDSON Si:c-40 were 152 cars. That
is, yesterday buyers of new cars paid out for HUDSON'S
The average for the past four weeks is $930,000 per week
because that is the limit of output. We are building and selling
1 00 per day. That is five times as many five times, mark 1J0U
as we sold at this season last year.
And we had no war then no talk of war's depression. Our
average sales have more than trebled since this war began.
That Means That Hudsons
Rule This Field Today
In July when we brought out this new model wc trebled
our output to cope with demand. Yet on August 1 despite our
best efforts we were 4,000 cars oversold.
We shipped by express nearly 1 ,000 cars to minimize delays.
That's an unprecedented act. But thousands of men waited
weeks for this car, when every rival had cars in plenty. Nothing
else could satisfy a man who once saw this new-model HUDSON
Five Fold Increase an Amazing Thing
Consider this fact: The HUDSON has long been a leading
car. Every model has for years been designed by Howard c.
In the HUDSON car Mr. Coffin has brought out all his new
advances. And the demand for his models long before the ad
vent of this HUDSON Six-40 gave HUDSONS the lead in this
field. The first HUDSON Six, inside of one year, became the
largest-selling Six in the world.
1 hink what a car this must be this new
HUDSON Six-40 to multiply that popularity
by five in one year. And to do it at a time like
this. Think how far it must outrank all the
cars that compete with it. Think
what tremendous appeal it muat
make to car buyers.
Think what a car ii must be when, in times of slow sale3,
men pay $930,000 per week for it. And they would pay more
if we had the cars to deliver. They yesterday bought at the rate
of 50 per cent more cars because 152 cars arrived.
The HUDSON Six-40 Now Far Outsells
Any Other Car in the World With
a Price Above $1,200
See the Car That Did It
Howard E. Coffin's Best
Come now and see this model the car whose record is unapproach
cd in the annals of this line. You will see a quality car sold at a price
which 13 winning men by the thousands from lower-grade cars.
You will see a class car in many respects the finest car of the day
which is 3old at one-third what class cars used to cost.
You will see how clever designing and costly materials have saved
about 1,000 pounds in weight. And in thi3 light car the lightest of tta
size you will see one of the sturdiest cars ever built. You will see a
new-type motor which ha3 cut down operative cost to about 30 per cent.
You will see new beauties, new ideas in equipment. You will see
new comforts, new conveniences scores of attractions you have never
seen before.
They arc all in this, masterpiece of Howard E. Coffin, who has long
been the leading American designer. This is his finished ideal of a car -of
the mnn who is conceded to be final authority.
