Where cotton is king,in dixie land. This folder contains a set of typical southern darky scenes,reproduced from actual photographs,showing the Care-free and happy life of the negro down in Dixie. In publishing this folder it is done with the idea of presenting to the post card buying public the simple,happy life of the colored race South of he Mason Dixon line,that has been made famous in Song and Story. This can only be appreciated by a visit to the Southland,and see the negro as he toils in the cotton and cane,hapy and contented. Superstition composes a great part of their life. It is the keystone of their life. It is the keynote of their songs,stories and floklore. The Negro dialect laconic rambling full of repectitions. And bounding in curious elusions which give an unexpected quaintness to the simplest statements. Stephen C. Foster has aptly express sentiments of the average darky in his beatiful song "The Old Folks Home."
