The winter season and the north At
lantic are not promising- as to time and
.locality for a vacation trip. The old
sailor, however, who, when the winds
blew and the chimney-pots went tumb
ling, preferred to take his chances on
old ocean, had a measure of reason.
One may he free at sea from some se
rious dangers on shore (the grippe, for
instance) and as to temperature, the
sea is always more equable than the

For after all, it may lie that men
grow more active and strong in the
crisp, sharp airs of the North American
continent. If adversity is good for hu
man beings, why may not cold blasts
and all kinds of weather gymnastics
such as are so common with ns, be good
also. It won’t do our climate a bit
of good for us to think otherwise, and
possibly it may give us contented
minds, just the thinking that is
best, even in weather conditions, Ho
we will be patriotic on the subject and
grin and bear weather conditions, as
we do some other conditions, for the
sake of pride in native land and insti
No institutions of this country are
more patriotic than the life insurance
companies and none of them equal the
patriotism shown by the ' >ld Phnmlx
Never was this fact better illustrated
than In April 1898 when the inquiry
for war permits from new and old pol
icy holders of this and other companies
were daily made to the agents of this
and other companies.
While some were charging large ex
tra premiums and others were restrict
ing their policy holders to service in
their states, tho Old Phornix wiped out
its restrictions as to war and stood
ready and waiting if called on, to pro
tect the widows and orphans of its pol
icy holders who should die in the de
fense of our country.
Once again is this grand old company i
before the people offering to them a
new form of insurance, and so complete
is it that the form and style of contract
has been copyrighted by the company.
Its new life, endowment and annuity
form is the perfection of insurance for
the young and old alike.
Before insuring get a specimen copy
of the contract by sending your age to

A Gathering of Businoss Men From all Over

At Southern Fines, N. C , was held
bn April 18th, 19th and 20th a most
important convention, and one that
will have most important bearing on
the South in that it will probably lead
to other like gatherings.
The idea was conceived among the
progressive people of that thriving
little winter resort among the bills of
Carolina and backed by the Seaboard
Air Line Railtffcy it took shape in tbe
form of a convention by which about
one hundred and twenty-five north
eru and eastern bankers, business
men and oditore, who were really in
terested in looking into the south’s ad-,
vautages and resources, met at the
Piney Woods Inn and talked with
southern men from various sectious
and iieard them tell of the south and
its advantages. Brunswick had a
representative there who occupied a
very prominent plaoe on tlie'prograui
and his speeches both on the resources
of Georgia, and his banquet speech in
responfe to the toast “Georgia” has
won for him some kind expressions,
both from the Georgia and North
Carolina press. Lack of space forbids
our printing the address in full on the
resources of Georgia, but the banquet
speech is here given as delivered the
evening of the 19:b.
When Governor fiusseil of North
Carolina, had concluded in response
to “The Old North State”, "Georgia”
was proposed and Mr. Brobston called
on for response, lie was greeted with
applause ami received quite an ova
tion. At conclusion he said : “Air,
Toa .(master, as I stand in the pres
ence of so much beauty, wit and
gram ; as I see before me so many
lovely women and handsome men,it is
hard to realize that lam not in the

world down in Georgia, and lliost

“An enthusiastic citizen of ycur
state thought to put a quietus on rue
this afternoon at the experiment
farm, when he said, ‘loud enough for
me to overhear, and evidently for rny
ears: “North Carolina has about
everything in it that Georgia has, ex
cept'Georgia Crackers’ ”, I mildly
replied to him that: “Our Cracker
state is so full of charm, to her people
that they never leave it,” ,

our goldenhearted people there are
none who outshine those of us from
