J. H. Hens, Lead and EmifrejUontot^Frisoo Line. Pinpricking the South. Editorial in Chicago Tribune,] • A considerable number of Northern newspapers, especially among those published in New York and New England, seem de termined that the old-time hatred betweeh the Northern and South ern States of this country shall never die out. To this end they let no chance pass to taunt, in sult, and patronizingly reprove the South. The Southern papers, irritated by the flight of poisoned I words darted at their people, re ply angrily and defiantly. In this unhappy way the gradually dying passions of the Oivil War are being converted into a smoldering fire of dislike which, if kept alive much longer, will become inextin guishable. Why the desire to sever this country into two parts, hating each other,* is entertained by any American passes comprehen • sion. Perhaps those who are en gaged in pinpricking the South do not see the logical and inevitable outcome of that policy, but are actuated merely by a certain querulness of disposition which impels its unhappy possessor con tinually to find fault. Whatever I the cause of their attitude, the ef> | feet of it upon the vigor, Haity, and strength of the nation can not but be deplorable, ThiB is what we wish to say to the South. The ill will displayed toward that section of the coun try by these Northern newspa pers can not be found in the slightest degree in the breast of the average Northern citizen. The Northern newspapers which are intent on keeping the nation dis j united do not, in that particular, reflect the sentiment even of their own constituencies. Far from harboring malice against the South, residents of the North re gard it with a positive liking— with a feeling which may be re garded as sentimental. Nothing, we belieye, demonstrates the truth of this observation better than the reception always accord ed by audiences in Northern mu sic halls, conventions, theaters, and parks to the tune of “Dixie.’’ The vociferous applause which never fails to greet this old an them of the Confederacy indicates not only delight in stirring strains but joy that the South has become again a prosperous, loyal part of the country. The gallantry of the Southern yolunteers in the Span ish war evoked as much pride in Northern cities and on Northern farms as did the courage and he roism of the sons of Federal sol. diers. The use of words North ern afhd Southern which the pur pose of this article has made nec essary does not lind retlection in the ordinary conversation end or dinary tnougbt of the people who live north of Mason and Dixon’s line—aline which should no lon ger divide sections. Lest the South should over es timate the attempts made by some misguided papers to prolong the old feud, we would state that the great body of people living in ’his part of the country are Amer. jeans first. They are proud of the whole country and are loyal to whole country. They do not sym pathize with the attempts to en courage dissenticn and distrust between regions of the United States. They know that if Abra ham Lincoln were alive today no man would view with more pro found sadness than he the effort to foster hatred between the North and South. Weather And Crops. The past week has brought showers, great heat and varying crop reports, but, on the whole the conditions have been bene1 flcial to staple crops. The harvest ^season is now so near at hand that crop news has become the matter of fact importance to busi ness-men, as so much depends upon the outcome of the staple productions. In the cotton belt there has been ample moisture, coupled with hot, forcing weather, jnst the weather to cause the crop to make rapid progress. There have been some complaints of too much rain, but that condition has not been general by any means, and the main result charged against it is that it has increased the rav ages of insect pests. Despite the good weather that has prevailed during August the crop has not recovered from the early backwardness, and is from two to four weeks late all over the belt. Aside from that it is doing well and promises a good, but its back1 wardness promises a good yield, but its backwardness increases the risks that will have to be run frotu early frosts, bad weather during harvest and the other risks of that period upon which the size of the crop so largely de pends. A promising crop has been spoiled by an unseasonable fall on more than one occasion, and is alson a fact that a seeming ly poor crop has been greatly aid ed by late frost and an open win ter.—N. O. Picayune, The Country Paper. Ihe average weekly editor us ually has bis all invested in bis newspaper property. That invest' ment generally represents from one to two thousand dollars. But it is worth more to the town than live times that much invested in any other local enterprise. As a rule, the newspaper represents to the outside world the town itself Poor paper, poor town, is the us ual verdict. It is therefore, to the interest of every town to support a good newspaper. Not through local pride alone, but for practical reasons A newspaper is constan tly doing ten times as much for its town as it would ever hope to get pay far—more than it would charge for if it would. The more prosperous a paper is the mdre it is able to do. Show us a goodj You May Drive Home with a wagon that everybody takes of? his hat to if you trade with us.

It is an important matter. It is their own that is involved—the progress and welfare of the com munity; therefore of themselves individually. A local paper is absolutely necessary to any com munity, If they keep the people of a community in touch with each other by giving them the news of their town and county, for that alone they are of value and are worth far more than the dollar a year that is usually charged for them. If they merely chronicle the progress of the com munity and keep the local pride aud progressive spirit aroused they are worth still more—far more in fact than the town ever spends ou them. Bear this mind: No merchant, no grand jury, no town council that spends every year all that they can afford on the home paper—whether that expenditure makes it actually necessary or not--makes a wiser, more profitable investment. They are not “giving” the home paper something. On the contrary, it is earning euery cent it gets and more—provided it is a paper that is worth picking up Jin the road. And it it isn’t that sort of a paper it is usually the fault of the town in which it is published,—Atlanta Constitution.
