' In 1880 the Southern States protHie^d only 807,801 tons of iron; in 1888 they produced 1,182,858 tons. All the other States produced 1880 8,808.118 tons, and in 1888 0,054,848 tons. Thus, while iron production in the other States in creased over 50 per 'cent, in the past eight years, the increase in the South was 100 per cent. This increased pro duction has caused a wonderful fall in prices since 1880. In one month of that year iron sold at $41 a ton. Since the heginuingof 1885 it has seldom been above $20, and now it is woilh only $10. The sheriffs of Georgia will hold a big convention in At'anta on July 10. The meeting will be held for purpose of giving.the sheriffs of the State chance to exchange views and to co operate in having the criminal laws of the State more“prefectly executed. The trial of Dr. McDow, accused of killing Captain D.t'.vsox, in Charleston, is set for this month. There has been charges by certain newspaper corres pondents that the panel of jurors who will hear the case lias been manipulated ui McDow’s interest. The people of this country have lu/n- ored themselves by the ready and mag. The Tree Masons of New York have decided to build a refuge for the hc-Ipless members of the fraternity and their fami y, and will probab y locate the grand institution, in Au burn The revenue set aside for its maintenance amounts to over §30,000 a year. This is one of grandest schemes ever inaugurated by a noble order. Why You Feel So weak and exhausted is because your blood is impure. As well expect the sanitary condition of a eity to be per fect with defiled water aud defective i sewerage, a3 to expect such a compli cated piece of mechanism ah the human frame to he in good order with impure blood circulating even to its minutest veins. Do yon know that every drop of your two or three gallous of blood passes through the heart and lungs in about two and a half minutes, aud that, on its way, it makes bone and muscle, brain and nerve, aud all other solids and fluids of the body? The blood is trie great nouTisber, or, as the Bible terms it, “The Life of the Body.” Is it any wonder, then, that if the blood he not pure and perfect iu its consti tuents, yon suffer so many indescribable symptoms? Ayer’s Sarsaparilla, stands “head and shoulders” above every other Alter ative and Blood Medicine. As proof, read these reliable testimonies; G. C. Brock, of Lowell, Mass., says: For the past 25 years I have sold Ayer’s Sarsaparilla. In my opinion, the best remedial agencies for the cure of all the diseases arising from impuri ties of the blood are contained iu this medicine.” Eugene I. Hill, M. D., 3S1 Sixth Ave., New York.says : “As a blood-purifier and general builder-up of the system, I have never found anything to equal Ayer’s Sarsaparilla. It gives perfect satisfaction.” Ayer’s Sarsaparilla proves equally eilicacious in all forms of Scrofula, Boils, Carbuncles, Eczema, Humors, Lumbago, Catarrh, Sic.-, aud is, there fore, the very best Spring and Family Medicine in use. “ It beats all,” says Mr. Cutler, of Cutler Brothers & Co., Boston, “how Tire Lrasr Stock of Carriages, Spring and Farm Wagons in the .South ndard Wagon H.

Hurrah for 1 cm* and and Tariff’ Reform! President Harrison lias made some thing like twelve thousand removals from office*since March 4. If there is one trait more than another that^we ad mire in Mr. Harrison, it is his consis tency (?) llis promises and his actions might marry, for they are Hot related in the slightest degree. A vkry prominent New York Re publican js reported Lo have, remarked in Washington the other day that, if the presidential election 'were to be held over again to-morrow, Harrison would lose New York State by 50,000. Wonder what office this “prominent Republican” failed to get ? But if this political prophet will date his predic tion November, 1802, we’ll go him halves. TheChronin Mystery, The mystery of the Cronin murder is as deep as ever, and there is no falling off iu the interest in it. An immense amount oT testimony has been taken by the coroner, but no facts have bee u elicited which direct attention toward any particular persons as the probable murderers. It lias been discovered,how ever, that Dr. Cronin had a great many hifluentinl and powerful enemies in the Irish societies. His course had been such is to make enemies for him. lie had been dismissed from the Glan-ua-Gael society at Chicago, and he entertained i very hitter feeling for tlie man who secured his dismissal. It was his in tention to make charges of a very grave character against this man at the duly lowering in Philadelphia of tlie Ulan* na-Gael societies. It is not generally believed that he was murdered by.the order of any one of these societies, ov that any one of these societies had-any thing to do. with the crime. It strongly suspended, however, that members of these societies, who were his enemies, were directly or indirectly connected with his murder. The societies are as sisting in hunting for the murderers. It is understood that they will contrib ute $25,000 towards bringing the mur derers to justice. This looks as if they were sincere in denouncing the crime and in desiring the punishment of the criminals. It is very important to them that the criminals should be discovered. The Irish cause is to a certain extent involved. That cause is boiuul to suffer some injury as the suspicion is not re moved that prominent Irish leaders are in some way responsible for Dr. Crimn’s death. The enemies if that cause are already busy 'circulating insinuations that Dr. Crbnin knew too much of the inside history of tlie societies, and that it had become necessary to silence him. The great interest that is manifested in the Pronin tragedy, therefore, does not 1 grow out of the tragedy itself, but is due to the suspension that a nation’s cause is in some way involved in it.
