The Ne a South
i l
l)id eii ever really think of;
the meaning of the words, the
new south? Well it means much.
To beyin. the old south was a
south of unidentified individuals.
The slave owner held the balance
of power and by this subtle in
fluence he controlled the affairs
of men. Out of this old south
sprang a hih type of civilization
yet its purposes were not broad
enough. It was a selfish south.
The jrreat devastation wrought
by the war id' the rebellion left
the south little better than a
held of carnage. Here came the
opportunity of the individual ami
from this influence we now have
in the new south, one of the
greatest developments the world
has ever witnessed, within a few
.eaiv. I 'rtdi r the old condition '
of thiij's this could have never !
been accomplished. The new!
-oiith stands as a monument to
the saacity and brute di termi
nation of the soul herner. Spirit !

of the south asserted itself. It !

Kood aloritf the line is evidenced
in the new south. It is the piide
of the race. It is the savin;?
tfraee of the nation. It is the
mark of the American. All hail
the new south. She has meiycd
from the ashes of defeat, and
builded on a solid basis, a struct
ure that will last with the ares
and each year will see her rise to
even creator things,
The new south was the poor
mans opportunity for recognition.
He fore the old conditions of af
fairs were swept away he had no
voice. With the advent of the
new era he saw his opportunity,
arid reaching out with steady
stride he outrode the storms of
opposition and came into his own.
Hats oil' to the new south. It is
rrow inr by leaps and bounds and
its rlory is found in the fulfill
ment of t he t raditions of a race
who know no master, savoliod,

If the world does not ro just
riirht smile. The darkening
i clouds of disappointment will not
dead you to the liht. Learn to
smile. A smiling sunshiny face
is the best asset one can possibly
I possess. Life is sunshine and
'shadows but if you want the sun
to shine lor you you must learn
the lesson of litfht. He cheerful.
The art of the sinshiny smile
is the art of rare cultivation. I'.e
like the old man in the home for
the friendless. When ashed what
he had to be thankful for he re
plied that lie had two jaw teeth,
one lower and one upper, and
that they matched. There is a
specimen of the sunshiny life.
The rnunpy fellow has much to
learn, much to repent.
Scattered alonjr lifes highway
are the impressions you left while
on your journey toward the
Krave. Have you made it sun
shiny, or does the hovering cloud
of pessimism show your trail.
Sunbeams are yours for the
asking. Smile.
