Am I Remembered?
Written for the Home Journal.
And am I then remembered still
Remembered too by thee,
Or, am I quite forgot by one,
Whom I no more may see?
Oh! say not so, for this would add
Fresh anguish to my .lojb, ■
I dare not hope to be recalled
Yet would not be forgot.
A Story of Progress.
Had they who parted us beat known
What hearts like ours could feel,
They would have us both a page
Beyond their power to heal.
I know not if thy heart, retains
Its wanted warmth or not,
Though I’m forbid to think of thee
I would not be forgot.
And should we meet in after years
Thou’lt find that I am changed,
My eyes grow dim, my cheeks grow pale
But not my love estranged.
From memory’s page the hand of death,
Alone thy name can blot.
Forget, forsake me, if thou wilt,
Thou’lt never be forgot.
The Work of the Plodders.
To the College Graduate.
If we were to examine a list of
the men who huve left their mark
on the world, we should find that,
as a rule, it is not composed of
those who were brilliant in youth,
or who gave great promise at the
outset of their careers, but rather
of the plodding young men who,
if they have not dazzled by their
brilliancy, have had the power of
a day’s work in them, who could
stay by a task, until it was done;
and well done'; who have hfid grit,
persistence, common sense and
It is the steady exercise of
these ordinary, homely virtues,
united with average ability, rath
er than -a deceptive display of
more fflpwy qualities in youth,
that enabled a man to achieve
greatly and honorably. So, if we
were to attempt to make a fore
cast of the successful men of the
future, we should not look for
them among the ranks of the
“smart” boys, those who think
they “knpw it all” and . are anx
ious to win by a short route.
An insurance agency in New Or
leans is being sued by a fire insur
ance company to recover the
amount of a policy paid beqause
of the burning of a gin house be
longing to a negro. The company
alleges -that it instructed .the
agents not to write insurance for
negroes, and did not know the in
surance was on a negro’s ginhouse
until after the payment had been
made. The insurance company is
a Northern concern. Are our
Northern insurance friends boy
cotting the negro on account of
his race and color?

In the course of an address be
fore the Georgia School of Tech
nology, Mr. R. H. Edmunds of
Baltimore recounted a story of the
progress of the South that must
have filled his hearers with pride,
and which should have the effect
of spurring then on to greater ef
forts. How many persons know
that the South is wealthier to
day than the whole country was
in 1860? Yet that is what Mr.
Edmunds asserted, and quoted
statistics to prbve. And this has
been accomplished in. the course
of a little more than forty years,
during which period the section
was devasted by the greatest of
modern wars. Deducting the war
and reconstuctiqn periods, it may
be ,said that the*' South’s present
development has been brought
about in but little if any more
than twenty-five years.
What does that development
amount to? In I860 the total
wealth of the whole country was
$16,100,000,000. Mr. Edmunds
says the census will show that the
South’s wealth in 1900 was fully
as much. In 1860 the entire coun
try made less than 1,000,000 tons
of pig iron; to-day the South is
making nearly 8,000,000 tons per
year. Last year Alabama alone
produced twice as. much coal as
the whole country produped forty
years agcK The value of * lumber
produced in 1860 was $96,000,000;
the South is now marketing over
$200,0000,000 -of. lumber a year.
Forty years ago the country had a
little more than 80,000 miles of
railroad ; "the South has now over
55,000 miles of railroad and ex
tensions are being consfea'ntly
made. And so the figures go alj
along the line. Even in banking
capital we have nearly one-half as
much as the United States had in
While this great advance has
been made, the material resources
of the South have hardly been
more than touched upon. One
half of the standing timber of the
country is in the. South; the
Southern hills are filled with valu
able ores and other minerals, and
the valleys and lowlands are
adapted to the growing of about
every product of tile temperate
zone. The progress of tlie next
forty years will be more Wonder
ful than that of the past, forty.
The South’s most valuable re
sources, however, are, as Mr. Ed
munds says, her boys and girls.
They must be educated in such
manner as to fit them for the re
sponsibilities that will devolve
upon then as the coming devolop-
ers of the section’s richness. The
Technological School is doing i
great work in that direction. Oth
er schools that will afford techni
cal training are needed. The
present era is one of industrialism
and it has a long time yet to run.
For the past few weeks th^ col
lege graduate has been giving us
endless advice as to how we should
conduct our own affairs and those
of < the nation, and so it 1 is only
fair that he Id his turn should be
the ; recipient of advioe which is
of value or not according to
whether or not he will accept it
and according to the person from
whom ifc emenates.
There is possibly no man in the
union more thoroughly compe
tent to offer suggestions along
the line of business success for
the college graduate than Charles
M. Schwab, president of the Uni
ted States Steel Corporation, and
a few paragraphs, direct, practi
cal, terse and expressive, from
his recent address to the gradua
ting class of the State College at
Belleponte, Pa., are worth read
ing and heeding, for they come
with all the force of the unques
tionable results of personal expe
He said: 1
The college man must start at
the bottom. One reason why
practical men are at the head of
organizations is because the col
lege man depends too much on
his diploma. The college man
who wiil not start at the bottom
will be outstripped by those he
finds fault with.
The worst thing you can do is
to start in life with influence.
Nothing will do you so much in
Never ask your friends to help
you. Get a position yourself, for
if you accomplish Anything they
will receive all the credit. ,
Be energetic. Make' mistakes
if you must, but keep working.
People will respect you for it.
Act, and act first. Be interested
in your work. Be assured that
success is not won by chance.
Be original ; do not follow the
beaten path. You will thereby
attract attention and win promo
Ability is now sought every

lack of it. Do not bekliscouraged,
but stick to your work,
Be honest. Don’t find fault.
Work where you' are placed. Be
thorough'; be original.
