We publish fliHtvfhern toJay tho
aiinounceniit ol the Moony douth,
the great weekly literary perlodU-nl
of the Houthern BfcitcH. rubilsbed
In Atlanta, Georgia, In the heart of
the great South, It bears upon It the
imp roao of Its birthplace and environ-
tnent. For more than twonty-flve
years the H tinny Houth hna been a
rocognlzed tttcior In tho field of
Southern literaturo. It was estab
lished more than a quarter of a cen
tury ago as a Bouthern story paper
and was published for a long time as
a weekly and thrn as a monthly.
About one year ago the paper
panned under new inanngement, and
lesM than a year it lias Jumped from
a circulation of 12,000 to nearly 60,-
000. Tho flrxt thing the new man.
agniuent did was to make It a week
ly publication and to reduce the
price to fifty cents per year less
than ono cent an Immuo and tken to
lufuxe Into its columns all the enter
prlno and literary ability that uirtney
could command or determination se
cure, lu let than a year this re
markable Southern literary paper
has become national In character and
It now has about as many subscribers
north of Ji.von and Dixon's line us
has lu the South. Its columns
abound In the beet current literature
of characteristic Houthern flavor, and
no literary periodical published any
where In the country has succoeded
In bringing together as many South
ern writers of note as has been done
by the Hunny Bouth.
A striking feature of tho Bunny
booth's development Is its Introduc
tion during tho past year of many
new story writers who will bo heard
from in the widor Hold of tho world's
literature. In almost every South
ern state new literary talent has
been dovulocd to such an extent aH
to put the whole country to talking
about the Kuuny Houth. A few
moBths ago the Hnnny Honth offered I
very haudsome prises for a series of
the bent short stories by Houthern
rlters, and more than five hnndrod
responses, were received. Home of
the stories then puhllxhed in the
Sunny Honth have been reproduced
the world over. Others are now be
ing published by It from week to
TAe fact that the price of this
lendld weekly periodical is only
fifty cents a year has had a. wonder
ful elfoct In giving it an extensive
field for the dovelopmeut of Its plana
and purposes. Terhnps no literary
periodical ever estahlltthcd has made
such rapid strides as tho Bunny South
In less than a year.
Mrs. .Mary E. Bryan, whose name
has long been associated with the
Hunay Houth, has boen engaged to
take full charge ot the woman's de

especially to women readers through

a pleasure lo kaow that the Boctb
has at lust secured a literary paper of
