To Describe the South West. -The Next Charlotte Observer Collier's Weekly announces a South ern edition for January 22nd. "The South," says this enterprising maga zine in its current issue, "is the next West, with free government land gone, the cheapest good land in the Lnited States is in the south. An Iowa farmer can sell his place for a hundred dollars an acre and for ten an acre buy its duplicate in any one of a half a dozen bout hern Mates South Carolina has raised more corn to the acre than Iowa, or any other of the 'corn belt' States. There are those who predict that the census of 1910 will show a net drecrease in the population of at least one Western farming State; and that 1020 will find that others have ceased togrow The middle West's younger genera tion will have gone where their fath ers went before them to the country with the cheapest land." We cannot resist the temptation to quote fur ther: "In the vicinity of Greenville and l.olumbia. fsoutn tarolina, there is more waterpower turning wheels and running factories than anywhere else in the United States except Niagara rails, boutn Carolina nas more spindles than any other State except Massachusetts. The Southern farmer is more interested in the new agricul ture, has a mind more open to science than most rural communities in the North. From Richmond all the way round to New Orleans there are four preeminent subjects of talk: good roads, good schools, good farming industrial training. Charlotte, North Carolina, in enterprise and the spirit of growth, is where Seattle was li years ago. Georgia, lrgima, Ala bama several other Southern States have more natural wealth than Indi ana. They need onlv capital and labor to turn their ores and lands and timber into widespread prosperi ty. Die capital that has been busy in the West for thirty years past, is turning South, and efficient labor will quickly follow.' Cook. Southern Development.

Raleigh State Democrat. There is no doubt that the year (irpnnlioro Christian Sun. One of the unaccountable events of recent months is the conduct of Dr. rrederick Cook who in September last claimed to have discovered the North Pole. lVior to tiiis episode, Mr. Cook was a man of wide repute as scientist and explorer. He had been zealous, ambitious, self-denying. capable. He was a man of humble birth and rearing, and had won his way to the front by superior skill and effort. hen his discoverv was an nounced, those who knew him best believed him most. His findings and data werepresented tothe University of Copenhagen. This high authority having made full and fair investiga tion now declare that Cook's data are insufficient, and virtually declare the man's claims to be fraudulent. Cook stands before the world today a fake and a fraud. The only expla nation seems to be that he allowed his ambition to outrun his judgment , his veracity, his integrity. It were a thousand times better for Cook that ' lie had never pet sail for the arctic region. His ambititn, like that of - many other men, has been his undo ing. Ambition without the check and seasoning of the Christian virtues is aspiration turned hellwards. State Superintendent of Schools, J. Y. Joyner, reports that a new school house was built for every day last year; also that during the past year 200 new rural libraries were estab lished and 150 local school tax dis tricts were voted.

If he can live till Januarv. 1 )('(, he will see what will be a new earth. Edison, the greatest inventive genius the world has vet produced, will be gone, but not for gotten; his work and his ideas will only be showing their full fiutition at the end of another half century. He is at work with the world's .mo.rt potent agency electricity. What can and will be done through its subtle power has not yet entered the mind of man, but will come as the world gets ready for its use. The world believes more in the inventive irenius of men than it used to, for the time was when they barely escaped hanging, quartering, and burning. Edison, so far as we know, lias nver failed in any invention he has under taken, .and this has done much to give credit J: o the business. And now, in the liiht of what lias passed in the last quarter of a c -n tury, is it not possible for the baby born in 1010 ami living to 1P( to see raw silk or cotton ro in at one end of the machine and school or party dresses come out at the other; wood put in a hopper, and picture books, novels, and even the lilble, dropping out at the other end. The great demand upon the inventor of t lie future is to combine and unify some of the machines already at work, doing, as it were, piece work. Now it requires the linotype and a separate press to turn out a new-p i ler.

The poor, true to the promise, are ever to le with us, but his yoke will be lighter and his life brighter with new opportunities for rest and intellectual improvement. But some things will not, cannot change: the tint and breath of the rose,-the good mother and the love for her babe, God and His promises, blessed thought, change nor; they en dure forever.
