The JSevf South.
Not alone in this prosperous
portion of the Union is there an
advance in population and wealth.
An older section is also keeping
step and occupies a prominent
place. The southern states are
entering upon a new growth and
discarding the mournful regrets of
past years; the southern people
are laying uder tribute their own
In an elaborate review the New
Orleans Times-Democrat has re
cently made an exhibit of what
eight sovereign states are doing.
This, as that paper says:
"Tell the storv of the almost
magic growth of Alabama's iron
cities,springing up in the midst of a
region desolate and uninhabited
but a few short years ago; of the
empire state of Georgia, leading
the south in-all the new industrial
movements, and demonstrating:
that the cotton fields are the prop
er place for the cotiou mills; of
Arkansas, rapidly payinir oil its
debt, almost doubling its railroad
mileage in two years, and with
sxw mills going up on every mile
of railroad and navigation in the
S-an; Florida, redeeming millions
o" acres of land from desolate
swamps to fertile fields or orch
ard; of the giant state of Texas,
with its immense crops, its broad
empire, so great tnat it presents
its school fund with a territory
larger than New York or Pcnnsj'l"

its rich yet scarcely developed
Yazoo valley; of Tennessee, with
its varied soils and products, its
grain, cotton, tobacco, its timber
and minerals; and of our own
state of Louisana, fighting bravely
that dangerous enemj', the river.
with some hope of victory over it
The Timcs-JJemocrut summar
izes the experience of the section
of "which it is the exponent, in
saying that the South has at last
learned the value of its mineral
and forest wealth, long hidden and
neglected, but now happily being
developed and utilized. It fully
appreciates the advantages of di
versified industries, especially o
manufactures. It has abandoned
its old loose and careless S3'stem of
agriculture, planting: a smaller
acreage, cultivating more thor
oughly, and not mortgaging crops
a vear in advance, as of old. The
negroes are prosperous, contented
with the new regime, working sat
isfactorily, and improving their
condition. The importance of
public schools is recognized, and
a heavy tax everj'wherc willingly
voted, and that the Southern
schools now compare favorably
with those of anj' other portion of
the country. The last element is
the greatest factor in the success
of the new South. The public
school is the most prominent fea
ture of our American system, and
where it flourishes prosperity is
the sure attendant.
