make it plin to intending home-
seekers from the cvclone and blizzard-blasted,
snowed under and
frosted regions of the northern
states why they should not stop
halfway or short when they start
for the Sunny South. And with
the marvelous exhibits of tropical
and semi-tropical and deciduous
fruits, all the cereal crops of every
grain that grows, and staple crops
of hay, sug r, svrup, cotton, long:
and short staple, tobacco, cigar

not least, Jersev butter and cheese
and milk and honey from middle
Ficrirla, to say nothing of the
wealth of th- richest- mines and
forests in the wond, all here as an
object lesson, so he that funs may
read, I find it not difficult to win
scores of enterprising people, af after
ter after I have convinced them that last
winter's freeze was a blessing in
disguise. For the many who were
sitting down under their orang
trees, dreammg of everlasting in incomes

Judging by the cordial spirit of
fraternity manifested by the gov governor's,"
ernor's," governor's," colonels and business
men of every section of the North
and South, with the sole exception
of the ill-timed talk of Tillman
and Fvans of South Carolina, there
has been nothing but expressions
of good will and brotherly love;
but the scorching excoriation they
have received at the hands of the
exposition managers and the
southern press will only serve to
prove the sincerity of what might
otherwise have ben regarded ty
