THE VINTON RECORD
Offlolal Organ cf Vinton County.
Wuilk lurnaces are otoppiug
all over the country because
iron can oot La made at pres
ent prices, all our lurnaces are
slill running with no present
intention of closing up. This
speaks volumes for cur section,
and attests what we have al
ways claimed that iron can
be made much cheaper here
than eNewhere in the United
States, for the reason that we
have both fuel and on in
abundance and of unexcelled
quality at fair prices, with no
cost lor transporting one to the
other. Capitalists will no doubt
note this fact, and we expect
an active market for coal aud
iron lands, when the financial
pinch lets up. Fancy furnaces
in cities hundreds of miles
away from the ore and coal
will have to give way
to those which do not pay out
all their profl ts to railroad com
panies for transportation.
Uon. Harvey Wells has
closed his contract for the pur
chase of the Dundy tarm, and
is negotiating with capitalists
for the erection of one or more
iron furnaces. We do not be
lieve there is as fine a site for
the erection of furnaces in all
this section of country as the
tract alluded to, as coal is
found in abundance, and a coal
vein which has no equal, un
derlies the whole farm, and is
easily and cheaply mined. Iron
will never get so low in price
dial it can not be made there
at a good profit. It's sneedy
developineut would r.dd greatly
to the progress of our district,
and we believe Mr. Wells has
the knowledge, business tact
and energy to pudi it to success.

The Happy English Laborer.
Here are a lew facts Which
we clip from the Pall Mall Ga
zette, by way ol contrast to the
condition of the American
workiogman: Three cases were
heard in one day before the
County Justices at Newbury
England, some weeks since,
which the Gazette quotes as
exemplifying the ''sad lack of
self-dependence which prevails
among the lower orders." Hen
ry Ballard, a half-starved spir
itless looking man, was tried
for shooting a rabbit on a de
mesne of one of his richer
neighors. Ballard burst into
tears, and slated that his wa
ges were but eleven shillings
per week out of which he had
to support thirteen children,
besides his wife and himself.
His wife dying of consumption
and longed for a bit ot fresh
meal; so he tried to catch tbe
rabbit. Ballard was severely
reprimanded and fined six shil.
lings, to be paid in a fortnight.
Tlie second case was that of
'Elizabeth Vokins, who was
suckling an infant, and sent to
Reading jail for two weeks for
taking some pieces of brass
belonging to a threshing ma
chine, out of a barn at Wei
ford, where her husband had
wtrked lor twenty years." Mr.
Vokins claimed that if his wife
were sent away his children
must starve, lor his work was
two miles from homo. "Eleven
shillings," he remarked, "was
none too much lo keep eight
persons.' But to jail Elizabeth
and her baby went. The third
case reveals still more clearly
the actual position of the work
ingman in Englaud. A young
married laborer named Major
was charged with leaving his
employer's service without jiif-t
cnu6o. Hit defense was that
ho received but nine 't hillings
a week, and that the cottage
lor which he bad to pay rent
out of this sum. had been since
Christinas partly blown down,
the boards b'fing rotten and
the snow driving' in. Ilij wile
(also with a baby in her arms)
had "caught her death in it,"
and was hopelessly consump
live. Not regarding these in
conveniences to the Mjors,the
magistrates promptly ordered
him back lo his work, and fined
him 9s. 6J., which, as he could
not pay, his master withheld
