SATURDAY, Nov. 16th, 1912. a
Time To Reset The Stage. vet
N. O. Item.
We reprint on this page a time- i
ly article from the Manufacturers'
Record ou, "fow to Increase the Ba
\Wealth and Businesa of ti e South,'
not only well worth radiung, but
deserving of more than passing
consideration and thought
The curtain has now run down
on the political drama. The peo. of
ple of the country have had their he
say and expressed themselves on
national question in no uncertain lin
way. It is now time for the peo- St
ple of this section to reset the
stage, and ring up the curtain, on
new activities and a new theme. of
These bshould center upon thIe tiv
commercial, industrial and agri
cultural developmuent of the South. I'o
As The Record points out the we
South is a mine of wealth. So is
Louisiana. Vast possibilities, of
which will greatly increase the it
wealth of our people, stretch out
before us. Present results have
been brought about by simply Bi'
scratching the surface. We most bui
renew our efforts and dig deeper,
if we are to grow in riches, popu La
lation and national importance. thi
It is entirely possible as this
article points out to bring thi ant
about. The aggregate output of sat
our farms and plantations in Lou
isiaua can be doubled if the farm
ars will enlarge their vision; if re- La
Deewed efforts are made to bring t. Or
our cut-over and reclaimed and fe*
prairie lands the right kind of in
dustrious, thrifty immigrants and W,
settlers. But it means that the lu
people of this state take as mucli thi
interest in the agricultural and
commercial progress of their state
as they do in their politics. It
means that the newspapers of the ol
state must conduct as active cam
paigns for and give as much space
to the development of the state's Fr
agricultural resources as they have pal
in the past to the election of a tin
Democratic president. Business Dt
men, farmers editors, looumbermen
and manufacturers msut all put hit
their shoulder to the wheel and ani
Tue agricultural growth of Lou- thi
isiaua is as important to the city
men as to the manu in the country
'The larger cities in the South will ast
only become larger and richer as Mi
the couuntry tributary to theiw be
grows and prospers. The city uran the
most get closer to the country and
and push its development. ra
It is true that great things are coi
being lone, but ten times greater qu
things can be done. This is the hit
slogan which should be heard
throughout the length sud breadth
of the state. Professional men, ri
farmors, merchants, manufacturers bu
and railroad people bshould all be me
not only preaching this gospel but fat
pascticlug it, in their individual ye,
lines of entdeavor. Aund above all
they should be working in unison,
and ou a far broader scale than in
the past. Eneragy and capital
power must be expended more I -o
berally than at present if the peo
ple of the South are goiug to equal
the opportunity. e
