Br. Louis, Mo., March 11. A re
markable mode of displaying affection
was demonstrated in the city jiil yes
terday. Among the prisoners are Sadie
Hayes, a colored woman, convicted of
murder in the first degree, and Wm.
Lacey, a black burglar, under a peni
tentiary sentence. The pair grew very
affectionate of late. The woman wrote
him a note, in which she assured the
burglar that be was the only object of
bar affection and requested him, if he
thought (a much of her as he pretend
ed, to send her his finger with the ring
on it. Lacev was to leave for the "pen"
to-day. After receiving the note he
tore open the sole of his shoe and ex
tracted the steel shank, and sharpened
it to a rsiored edge on the walls of his
cell. He then deliberately sat down
ad cut off the small finger of his right
band at the second joint, placed tits
ring on the severed tinner and sent I
them to the cell of the murderess. He
tied np the stamp with a piece of a
string, and then wrapped his hand up
in the hamlktr hief. The jail gmmlg
discovered the blojd and soon learned
what hsd happened. They took the
dismembered finger from the woman.
Lacey is said by physicians to be per
fectly sane.

Chicago, III., March 11. Albert B.
Fox of Hand Lake, Kensselear county,
N. Y., began suit in the Circuit Court
this morning to recover $12,000 from
Fay A Hall, a Chicago firm of real
estate dealers. Fox claims that Fay
tfc Hall were his financial agents, and
in 1884, when transacting busincs for
him, handled $12,000 of his money.
In October of that year he says he de
manded a settlement snd the return of
the miDty, but the defendants asked
for a delay and have never returned
the money. Recently, Fox alleges, he
learned thst ray A mil had invested
his money in lots in this city and bad
built housjs on them. Home of the
property they have sold, he alleges, at
a large profit and are (till speculating
with his capital, which they refuse to
return.

Forsyth, Ga., Match ft Married,
at the residence of the briJu'n mother,
Mine Donie Goodrum cf this county
and Mr. David T. Rogers of Logan,
Ka. There is a piece of romance con
nected with this marriage. Mr. Rog
ers was in the Union army, attached
to Gen. 8herman'acommand,and with
him in his march through Georgia,
and one niirht camped near the resi
dence of Mr. J. I. Goodrum, the
brother of the bride. On leaving
next morning Mr. Rogers left bis
knsptack, and in it was a diary which
he kept on the march, which was
found by one cf Mr. Goodrom'a chil
dren, tome years after the present
bride was visiting her brother and
cams across h's diary, and wrote to
Mr. Rogers, having seen his address in
the diary, stating- that she wai
in possession of the same, and
if he desired would forward
it fo him. He immediately wrote
back, requesting her to forward it to
him, which sbe did. A correspond
ence then sprang up between Mrs.
Mary Rogsrs, his wife, end Miss Good
rum, which was kept up for some
time. About eighteen months sgo he
wrote to Miss Goodrum that bis wife
wai dead, and through the solicita
tions of his children wrote her, as
they and his wife hsd formed quite
an attachment for her. Home few
days sgo he wrrte again, stating that
he had some "social" business that
called him to Noith Carolina, and
would call to ree her on bis wsy
south. He arrived at Forsyth, and
went out to see Wins G. to pay a
friendly visit and to thank her in
pereon for preserving the little book
prizad so highly. He wai so well
plessed with her he called the next
day, and liking one another so well
were married, as above stated. The
happy couple will leave for their
Western home the last of this week.

The Missihhii'pi Valley Medical

lent snd very timely at tides, one of
which ia worth the especial attention of
tbe faculty. It is the history of "a suc

hygienic surroundings," by Dr. Smith
of Dyersburg, who. iu a concluding
paragraph, says : "The case illustrates,
first, the effect of ovarian irritation on
the nervous system, aud through the
nervous system on the mind ; second,
the sudden, decided and pprmment
relict affcrJed by the removal of a
diseased ovary; third, the fact that
lMentun, ODe of the grandest princi

MEMPHIS DAILY
THE BIRJIIKIIAM ROAD
AND THE TRADE IX IEOX IT WILL
EXCOUEAtiE.
A New and Profitable Industry That
Will Sake Memphis a Prosper
ous Xannfaclaring- City.
Icoaagsroaoiics or tis Arriax.l
Lke County, Miss., March 9
Geographically, Memphis is favora
bly situated. No city in the South is
moie so, when we rp:ak of the South
proper. From its position on the
great father of waters it ia, practically,
in arm's length of any place in the
Mississippi Valley which can be
reached by water. Addol to this con
trolling advantage its iron arms ex
tend far out in various direction on
both sides of the river. Still another
railway from Memphis ia projected,
and actually in process of construc
tion. This is the Memphis, Birming
ham and Atlantic road. Already that
enterprise bai processed so far aa to
preclude speculation as to its success.
We may esfsly conclude that at no
distaat day trains will be tunning
upon it from Memphis to Birming
ham, sweeping th-ough tha rich coal
fields and iron beds of Alabama. From
the completion of this road we may
date a new impetus ti tha growih cf
Memphis.
Taking our country generally, there
ia unquestionably a great deal of iron
ore. Bnt there are few places where
this ore and coal are found together.
But in Alabama there is a large area
where these two minerals are bedded
aide by side, to to speak. They are
not only abundant in quantity, but
their superior quality is well attested.
As for coal, it may be disposed of in a
very few words. Thore is a profusion
of good ccal. As for the iron ore, it
yields a large per centum of matal.
Iron, like other metals, is all alike,
when separated from the ether sub
ettncea with which it is intermixed.
When we speak of iron by compari
son, as good iron or inferior iron, tbe
meaning is that some is clearer of for
eign substances than others. It has
been claimed tbat the Alabama ore
has more iron in it, pound for pound
or bulk for bulk, than any other ore
known in this country, or, indeed,
anywhere else. This claim is proba
bly well founded.
The writer of these lines is cogni
sant of a fact bearing oa this point,
which may be stated. Soon after the
war a considerable number of persons
from tbe North and Wtst came South
tj prospect for various purposes.
Among this class was a venerable
Penneylvanian. He was attracted to
Alabama by repoits about the iron ore
there. All of hia business life, which
was nearly half a century, had been
devoted to the making of iron. His
object was to obtain such information
as would enable him to decide
whether he wonld or would not set
hia sons np in tbe iron business in
Alabama. He made careful examina
tions, taking ample time and leisure
for the purpose. Tbe conclusion he
reached was that the richest iron ore
of which he had any knowledge was
that in Alabama. It is not improbable
that the capital of that old gentleman,
under the management of his sons,
hue contributed not a little t) the phe
nomenal giowth of the city of Bir
mingham. Another illustrative incident may
be stated: Boon afier the building of
the Alabamaand Chattancoga railroad
was commenced the Hon. K, M. Pat
ton, then Governor of Alabama, made
a railroad speech near where Birming
ham now stands. (There wsa no
semblance of a town there then). Tbe
speaker was well informed as to the
abundance and richness of the iron
ore of that region. Yet it
was lying andeveloped in it)
native bed. The Governor firesaw
and" predicted tbe future wealth
that wonld grow from those rich iron
beds. He then described tbe manner
in which the rails for that road were
brought from remote points some
from England. After tbe long dis
tance that these rails had been trans
ported, laborers were at tbat time dig
ging up and removing iron ore to pre
pare the roadbed for them, and he
then declared, from well-attested data,
that tbe ore thus dug up and removed,
bad in it from 10 to 12 per cent, more
iron than the beet ore from which
those imported rails bai been taken.
Such is the character of the iron ore
in the vast field wbkh will soon be
opened np by this road from Memphis
to Birmingham. But, of course, this
road will be profitable to the capital
ists who build it, and greatly advan
lapnniui to MemDhis. anart from its
sweep through the coal fields. A large
portion ot tne country inrougu wmcn
it will pais is a fine cotton-producing
region. The cotton of that region, from
tbe ordinary rules which govern com
merce, will be thrown into Memphis.
Bnt the manipulation of coal and iron
in Memphis will be a new iealure in
the business of that city. d.
THE WHEAT CB0P.
TUe eenersri ('eidlClen ef the Wis-
ter Crop Uoed.
St. Louis. Mo.. March 11. The
Planter and Stockmin of this city pub
lishes a very full report of the condi
tion c t tbe wheat crop in tne entire
wint9r wheat belt, the information
being derived from a very large num
ber of reliable correspondents, ine
acreage is nearly the same as last year.
As to the present condition, Tenneese
reports the plant stood the winter well.
In Kentucky the plant is growing, the
heavy snows of February were vry
favorable, and under good conditions
an average crop is looked lot. In
Michigan wheat went into the winter
in a poor condition, and on account of
bad weather and little snow mucu ot
the plant haa been seriously injured,
and has also experienced very change
able weather (or the past month which
has injured the plant to some extent,
and the prospect for a full crop is poor.
The outlook is about the same in
Ohio. Kansas repoits are con dieting,
and the proepecta are only fair. In
Missouri the outlook is favorable, and,
with no decide change for the wore e
before April, there will be an average
crop. Illinois makes an exhibit mnch
like Kansas. The condition differs
greatly according to locality, and only
nnder unusually favorable circum
stances can there be more than a
three-fourth crop. From the Pacific
crast all correspondents agree that,
while the crop is not so far advanced
as last year, prospects now are excel
lent. Uld wheat haa generally gone
out of farmers' hands, and shipments
to Kurope are large.
