the raising of $4,500 for the purchase
of a beautiful building site for a new
church house. Every cent of this
amount is in gild-edged pledges and

DREAMY SOUTH HAS DEPARTED

great change from the old-time Dixie
In the following appropriate verses:
A Word About the Dreamy South
A3 I roam through Northern ghettos.
Thoughts of cane-breaks and pal pal-mettoes
mettoes pal-mettoes Come (by contrast) to my mind.
And the taste of Creole creamy
Chicken mocks my yearning mouth;
Vagrant memories of the dreamy
Say! where is the "Dreamy South"?
They are planning lofty "scrapers"
Down on Charleston's real estate;
You should read the Southern papers v
For the baseball slang to date.
And in New Orleans, protected
By the lordly river's mouth.
There's a subway line projected
Say! where Is the "Dreamy South"?
Now, the bustling cotton broker
And the rich tobacco man
Occupy the Pullman smoker
And inordinately plan
Booms on land where Uncle Remus
Once reclined in weeds and drouth;
They are waking Nicodemus
All along the "dreamy" South.
And among the Wall street raiders.
When some fresh young blade ap appears
pears appears Driving off the Yankee raiders
With his clean lamb-trimming
Then Fortune, Mammon's mother,
Opens wide her golden mouth
And exclaims. "Well! here's another
Hustler for the 'dreamy South!"
If some scientific bookworm
Muckrakes Dixie's inner turn
Well, I wish I had a hookworm
Of the sort I find in some.
But that worm makes genius fertile
And he never causes a drouth
In the heart beneath the kirtle
Of the (erstwhile) dreamy South!
We do not fear competition; It Is the!
