The Prosperous South.
The South is now and has been for a year past the most prosper ous "part of the United States. This prosperity bids fair to con tinue without interruption, says the Home and Farm. Taught by the hard experience of a low price for cotton, lasting for several years, diversified f.rming became general, and while cotton remained “King,” increased crops of corn and wheat were grown, cattle and bogs were raised, fruit and vegetables be came a great source of revenue. Now, with a great cotton crop in sight, and the world in need of a larger quantity than ever be fore, the price will not sink to the low level prevailing a few years ago, and the other great crops were never larger, and are bringing prices that mean pros perity to the raiser. Tkn f A-f XII a touuui jao the Soath, here and there the conditions may be unfavorable, but as a whole the South s pros pects were never better, and the eyes of the world are turned to the fair and fertile land “flowing with milk and honey,'’ with a climate so mild and even that work is a pleasure is all seasons, and with a soil so rich that work brings a rich reward. No wonder the people of the North and West are turning to ward the South, where cheap and fertile lands can be had in com munities already supplied with schools, churches, and transpor tation facilities, and better than all, with a people who have shown within the past thirty years a power to wrest victory from ad* verse conditions that has never been equaled. There are numbers of self made meni but no matter now good a job they made, it is not good taste to boast of it. Any man who has been a success by his own efforts is composed of the material that would have caused him to be a better man with the assistance of good par ents in rearing him.—Newton Register, The Man of Cheer. We love the man with the roses on his tongue, the min who sees the boys dirty face, but mentions his bright eyes; who notices your shabby coat, bnt praises your studious habits; the man who sees all the faults, but who is quick to praise and slow to blams. We like to meet a man whose smile will light up dreariness, whose voice is full of the music of birdS, and whose handshake is an inspiration and his “God bless you’’ a benediction. He makes us forget our troubles as the rav ens dismal croak is forgotten when the woo d thrush sings. God bloss the man of cheer. There is plenty of trouble here but we need not increase it. There is a lot of dying ahead of time.—Ex. change. It is the pretty girl who sees the worst side of men’s charac ters. v Many a man has lost his reputa tion by holding it up too much to public view. A woman rarety considers a gown becoming when it has reached a second season. Some in 3D show the hypocrisy that is in them by too much hu mility. It is the freezing corner that makes a woman doubtful of her standing. Men want all there is to be had in this world, and they don’t hes - itato to say so. How to Help Your GlrMm, The anxious mother of the family often times carries the whole burden of respon sibility so far as the home medication el common ailments of the girls or boys ass concerned. The cost of the doctor’s visits are very often too great for consideration. At such time# the mother is invited to write to Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., for medical advise, which is given free. Cor respondence is held strictly confidential. $000 REWARD FOR WOMEN WHO CANNOT BE CVRED. Backed- up by over a third of a century of remarkable and uniform cures, a record such as no other remedy for the diseases and weaknesses! peculiar to women ever attained, the proprietors and makers of Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription now feel fully warimnted in offering to pay $900 in legal money of the United States, for any case of Deucorrhea, Female Weakness, Pro lapsus, or Falling of Womb which they cannot cure.
