This is an old publication which started as a monthly in 1909 which I found quite by chance. It is full of uplifting stories and based in North Carolina. I have added a link to a book about the company that started it and also found a copy of the first volume and then added a later volume for 1939 which had grown to some 1600 pages.

I have been dipping into it and have enjoyed many of the articles in it and so thought I'd share this with you. You can get the publication mentioned above at:
