Excerpt from The New Man at Rossmere There are certain localities in the South for which it is difficult to forecast a bright future; localities which, for patent reasons, must remain, at least for many generations to come, what they were and as they were at the close of the war. Possessed of no mineral resources suggesting latent possibilities and inviting capital, there is nothing upon which to found a reasonable expectation that the sluggish current of their ways will ever increase in velocity. Debarred, by the very exigencies of natural position, such impetus toward improvement and progress as follows in the fiery wake of the locomotive, the local pulse must continue to beat in unison with the slower revolutions of the paddle-wheel, which still embodies for it the acme of speed.
