There most be a sometime, hotter far Than our now, with its old sorrow* And though never we've won where its out posts are. We'll try again tomorrow. For sometime land has a silver strand And pleasant groves to shade us. So we cannot rest in our lifelong qoMl For Joys that still evade us.

The Gentleman Farmer of the South* While the muterial development of the south in tho past 30 years has been almost startling, it would nev ertheless be rash to assume that the economic character of her people has been entirely transformed. Slav ery no longer exists, and labor is no longer considered disgraceful, but the negro, though politically free, is still socially and economically servile and still affects his white employer disastrously in many ways. With the growth of towns, an artiBan and a middle class have been developed, and the former aris tocracy of birth and wealth has given way to one of wealth only, but in the country the well to do middle oloss farmer is the excep tion the gentleman planter and "poor white" squatters cumber and choke the ground. Want of thrift and intelligent fore sight and an inherited instinct of laissez fairo are to be observed In every rural community—normally in tide water and romute mountain regions, less commonly in such fa vored spots as the valley of Vir ginia. In cotton growing localities the factor or commission merchant plays a part fully as important as he did before the war and practically holds both planter and plantation in his grasp. With the factor on one hand and the lazy negroes with whom he works 011 shares on the other, it is no wonder that the lot of the gentleman farmer is continually growing worse or that his sons seek urban employment whenever (plough they can.—W.
