SEES A‘GREAT SOUTH IN THE
Dn we Southerners realize the op-
T port unity before us? Are we taking
full advantage of the possibilities of
fered by the South, u veritable empire
still in its infancy?
We are prone at times to take
thljigs for granted and dream of build
ing great fortunes in some other sec
tion of the world. Our greatest op
portunities lies here at home.
I This fact is being recognzed by per
sons in other sections of the country
and more and more the eye of the Am
erican people is being turned toward
the Mason and Dixon line where the
record growth and array of natural
resources prove thib section to be un
"Vast Opportunities in Bouth Beck
on to Business" is the caption of an
article in the December issue of The
Magazine of Wall Street that lias a
dual meaning. For one tiling it dem
onstrates again the awakened interest
in the South among investors in oth
er sections of the country. For an
other thing it points out to us the fine
recoup we are making that should in
spire us to be even greater things.
This magazine of Wall Street thinks
for one thing, that our climate alone
will make the South one of the great
est sections of the United States. “The
human race thrives naturally in warm
er climates,’’ says this l magazine.
"Two-thirds of mankind live in wann
er climates. If Northern Europe and
Northern United States have had
dense populations, it has been due pri
marily to the earlier exploitation of
coal, iron and water power. Once the
warmer climates exploit these, how
ever (and they have the greater sup
ply) the course of Empire will again
wend its way to softer climes. * * *
Modern industry will likewise be en
throned in warmer climates. Hence
the undeniable potentialities for our
That this trend) is even now going
lorward at rapid .pace is shown by the
information with which this article is
chock full. Some of the salieut facts
may be summed up :

ly doubled its spindleagc.
The Sr.uth now‘controls the sulphur
industry, in which 32 years ago Sicily

Southern iron production lias grown

With a production of 17 million
board feet, the South now produces
over half the lumber output of the ua

Railroad mileage has increased by

Among credit resources, bank depos
its increased since 1880 in the South
from 190 millions to 6.66 billions, a
growth of about thirty-five times, as
compared with seventeen times for the
North and West.
MAKING TRAINS SAFER.
According to Railroad Age it is
much safer to ride in trains now than
in autos, for while the trains carry
mauy more passengers than do the
autos, fewer deaths result from train
service than from auto service.
Tile railroads of the country have
made great headway during the past
20 years iu making travel safer. They
have spent millions of dollars and they
have gotten results. Railroad Age
says it is now “only one-third as dan
gerous to work for railroads and only
one-fifth as dangerous to ride on their
passenger trains as it was 20 years
ago.” It submits that in 1904 one
man out of each 357 employed by the
railways was killed. In 1914 this had
been reduced to one employe in 538,
and in 1924 to one in 1.164. The rec
ord of 1924 as regards safety of em
ployes is the best ever made in any en
tire year. In the first eight months of
1924, however, one employe in each
1.784 was killed while in the first
eight months of 1925 only one in each
1.824 was killed, which indicates that
the record of 1925 wilt show further
improvement. The annual accident
figures show that railway employment
is less than one-third as hazardous as
it was 20 years ago, and less than one
half as hazardous as a decade ago.
Iu 1904 the railways carried 49.-
712.503 passengers one mile for each
passenger who was killed. In 1924
they, carried 152.401.815 passengers
one mile for each that was killed and
in 1924, 244.642.919 passengers one
mile for eneh one that was killed. In
1914 the actual number of passengers
: killed was 441: in 1907. 610—the
highest figure ever reached—and in
1024 only 149. In the first eight
months of 1924 the number of passen
gers killed was 101. and in the first
eight months of 1925 it was 106.
"In spite of the increase in the num
ber of motor vehicles even fatal acci
dents at highway grade crossings are
beginning to decrease.” concludes The
Age. "There was a reduction of them
in 1924 as compared with 1923. and in
the first eight months of 1925 the
number of persons killed at grade
crossings was 1.324 persons as com
pared with 1.359, inn tile correspond
ing period of last year.’’

teachings of God's word," adding
that he wished it might be heralded
throughout the nation.
The lecture was received with en
thusiasm by the students and others
in the audience, niauy of whom were
from the city.
Dr. Stuart began his address by
saying, "1 am to speak to you

especially to be keepers at home.

fact that woman’s rightful place is j

j - SYNOPSIS
I Ceusoemara Moore, finding herself
on a yacht in Long Island Sound after
midnight, attempted to leap overboard,
but teas restrained by one Pooich, a
stranger. Then McTish, the shfaper,
fells Pooch for annoying her. Iu the
bovts of the boat Connehtara is amazed
to find young David Lacy, with whom
the had driven from Aunt Celimen's
Connecticut home. He had been spill
ed in an automobile accident and is
novo in the company of two mysterious
characters, "Doc“ and "Sweetie.”
“Shut up, Doc, you’re all wet!”
called the lady weakly, sitting up on
the d.eck. This was a true-state
ment, however she meant it.
“Are you ail right, Sweetie?” ask
ed the big fellow anxiously.
,“K. O.!” responded the girl terse
ly. “Where’* the guy we had with
/-“I hope he’s drowned!” -was the
unfeeling answer. “The Big stiff—
he was a Jonah! Hey, who’s in
charge of this tuB?” he added to
McTish turned to look at Lacy,
who, rope in hand, was in contro
versy with Mr. Pooch.
“Stick out your arms like a nice
little boy,” suggested Lacy. “I'm
-going to tie you up in a neat lit: !e
package and ship you somewhee
where you’ll be more appreciated!”
Mr. Pooch slowly arose to his
j feet. He surveyed the slighter man
| contemptuously and then his roving
I eyes took in the little group in the
bow who were watching the tableau
I with various emotions. As his
glance fell on Connemara, his eyes
| brightened. Mr. Pooch had a one
j track mind.
Lacey dropped Mr. Pooch to the
“Gimme tl>at fifty grand!” he de
manded hoarsely, staggering toward
het The big man and his girl com
panion started and looked at each
“Do wh^ you’re told!” exclaimed
Lacy impatiently—and dropped Mr.
Pooch to the deck with a perfectly
timed left hook. Immediately stoop
ing, he began the process of tying
up his victim. '
“Where’s that gun?” whispered
Doc, shaking Sweetie’s arm.
“I lost it when this scow hit us,”
Sweetie answered then warned,
“don’t start nothin’ you can’t finish,
Ignoring'her advice, Doc strode
Over to Connemara and grasped her
arm roughly. “So you did get the
jack, hey?” he growled. “Well, that
makes things easier. Gimme that
dough or I’ll croak you!” #
Lacy reached Connemara’s side as
though shot from a cannon and
while Sweetie’s warning shriek was
still on the air, his right fist shot out
and thudded against Doc’s jaw. Bor
Doc did not go down, a la Pooch.
Instead, he returned the cot i pli
ment with much vigor. In another
instant the two men were threshing
about the rolling deck, while Mc-
Tish, in response to Mr. Lacy’s
shouted command held the strug
gling, clawing, howling Sweetie,
with both arms tightly pinioned at
her sides. From his prostrate posi
tion on the floor, Mr. Pooch watch
ed the proceedings with mournful
A fortuhate blow from Lacy, who
even to Connemara's inexperienced
eyes seemed to be something of a
boxer, sent Doc crashing to tbe
deck. The big man’s head struck a,
projection with a resounding and
soul-satisfying jfump. He lay still
and unresisting as Lacy deftly
bound him and with the help of
’McTish rolled him alongside Mr.
Pooch. Released during the process,
Sweetie leaned against the rail and
glared at each in turn.
“If I don’t tie you, will you make

Lacy stared at the bundle ol

So did Mr. Pooch and Doc. Mr
Pooch emitted a baffled groan and
rolled on his side, as if to hide th«
scene from his view. Doc, who was
swearing with great heartiness,
“I don’t want this. What is
how much?” asked Lacy.
“It's more than 1 I’m goin|f to bs
responsible for,” said Connemarq
firmly. “Please—please—just stick
it in your pocket—or anywhere.”
"Well,” said Lacy, “it’s very ir
regular, but I’m always anxious to
do what a lady requests.”
He took the money and stuffed i!
carelessly in the pocket of his wet
coat. As he did so out of the dark
ness came a gruff hail. A shapeless
hulk grated against the yacht’s side.
By Sophie Kerr
McTish and Lacy, Connemara
and the Sweetie person, were gal
vanized into attention and rushed to
the rail. Pooch and Doc could do
nothing but stretch their necks
' anxiously in the direction of the
hail, and squirm uneasily.
“Ship aho-o-o-y!” sang out Lacy,
“Look out, you’ll run us down, you
poor goofs. What’re y' doing?
Where’s your lights?”
There was silence for a moment,
and then the voice, much less gruff,
came: from the-darkness, accented
in amazement: “By the great horn
spoon, that’s Dave Lacy and his
old tub, the,Bloody Nuisance. Dave,
you scoundrel, what are you doing
“Listen—say!” Lacy’s voice was
just as much amazed, and quite
hilariously joyful. “Why, Bob
“S-s-s-s-tl” said tWt other voice,
sharply. “Don’t call my name! I’m
looking for somebody, somebody in
a little foolish boat, maybe two ol
them, sneaking round these waters
- and being as inconspicuous as pos
sible. Seen anything like that to.'
“I’ve Only been aboard a few

1 about it, Mac?”
i “Not a sign nor a sound,” de-t
L dared McTish. “And I’ve bdejn ori

, “Oh, damn!” went on the unseen
. voice. “Just my rotten luck. Say,
• Dave, you going to anchor here?”
f “I might, if there was any Induce^
■ thent,” said Lacy. “Why don’t yofl
i come on board? I’ve,.got Scotch

, A low groan of anguish burst
t simultaneously from Doc and Pooch
■ at this announcement.
■- “I’m going to take a little quiet
