lvalue of the Exposition.
The Atlanta Exposition, which opened on the 18th instant, is now fully under way. We were glad to note that, at the opening, both the Christian religion and patriotism were recognized. It is at such great assemblages as this that the quality cf the true nation is seen. The anarchist, the atheist, and other fools, have there no place. Sometimes, as we read the foolish gUes of socialihts and infidels, ac companied by weakly prophesy ings of, a few prominent newspaxers, we are led to believe that the republic is crumbling 2nd that chaos is ahead. But when the sovereign j people get together, the falsity of j such a position is evident. Then j it may be seen that the land is j brimful of hope and confidence j and that the Lord is our God. I Then is perceived how meager is j the minority of the scoffer at both j our religion and our government. We wonder that he does not see it. He is small infinitely small As Sam Jones says of the youthful, foolish, kid-gloved, gold-caned cir cuit rider, if he should get astride a goose quill his feet would not touch the ground. We welcome this great exposi tion. It has started out on the right line. The question of Sun day opening has not even been mooted. Amusements such as the cruel Mexican bull light, have been prohibited. Christian morals con trol the management, so far as we can determine. Indeed, if it should prove otherwise, it would be di rectly in the face of the well recognized conservative and re ligious spirit of the sovereign peo ple of our Southland. Consequently, the exposition promises much for the South. Of course the greatest crowds will at tend from this section of the Union. But thousands will come from the jreat North, Northwest and West. And they will come with a pur- pose, inar, purpose win oe, on the part of many, to spy out the land with a view to , settlement. Never, since thd war, have the -eyes of the home-seeker been di rected towards tfi South as now. So evident is this condition of affairs that companies of inquiry into the value of Southern lands, in the interest of prospective set tlers, have been formed in the West, especially. And these com panies are not composed of South ern men; or their agents, desirous of creating a boom in Southern land. I5ut they are, made up of those in the West and other sec tions, who have noticed the dispo sition, not of the immigrant but of the old settler in those sections, to go to the South in search of valua ble farming lands. These men will find in the exposition an aid to them in discovering what they de sire to know. Of course Georgia, the home of the exposition, will be mostly benefited. . But the good will not be confined to that state. Florida and other Southern states will come in for their share. Thous ands of these people will extend their trip to our sunny state. They must, if they do, see the grand op portunity to be had by investing in orange -groves and other farms. -And all of us will be glad to wel come among us this hew blood. It -will not only.put more money in circulation ano thus encourage every branch of business, but must also add to our population men of 3nuscle, brain and industry. Let them come. 9 Mj 1 go) (o) 5oj 4 1 HITTING O A RLAN To save money is an excellent idea. You couldn't hit on a bet ter plan than examining our immense stock of Furniture and House Furnishing Goods.
