SINCE THE WAR.
THE PIIOGKE88 MADE IN THE COUKTUV 8 1N
Few p?ople realize what astonisliing pro
gress bus been maUu in this country since
the war, notwithstuuding the interruption
to industrial development caused by the
panic in 1873. la the fourteen years since
1865 our production of wheat lias increased
from 148,553,829 bushels to 343,730,000
bttsuels; of corn, from 704,427,753
bnshels to 1,544,890,000 bushels; ol
cotton, from 2,223,'JS7 bales to 3.020,387
bales, and of tobacco, from 183,326,
953 pounds to 884,059,(1511 pounds. In
other agricultural products the increase hus
been proportionately great. According to
the well-known statician, Mr. H. P. Porter,
the production of wheat and barley has
trebled; corn, cotton and tobacco more than
doubled; oats increased more than 140,000,
000 bushels ; potatoes nearly doubled, and
hay increased nearly one-third. So far us
the south is concerned she has ever reusou
to be satisfied with her contribution to the
common prosperity. The cotton crop of
1878 and 1879 was the largest ever raised.
The ten crops from 1832 to 1SG1 raised by
slave labor numbered 34.095.440 bales. The
tea crops from 1870 to 1379 inclusive,
raised by free labor numbered 41,454,743
bales, so that notwithstanding the havoc
wrought by the war the younger genera
tionof southerners have every reason to
congratulate themselves on the changes in
the social structure of their section result

o a! an tho smith has urhii-vol a erMil'v.
ing increase in the annual yield, and it is
believed that at no distant day there will
.be an enormous increase in the production
A southern corn, while the center ot
, gricultural production lias moved swiftly
westward, it is believed that, with the de
fertilization of these new lands, and the
fertilization of the soil in the older states,
it will recede eastward again. Mr. Porter,
imm mhnin tlii.to atntnmint ri ili-nvcil
' declares that "exhaustion" of wheat lunds
it an impossibility so lonn as furmers sup
ply tlicir lands with the necinwy ouiutity
of food. There need bo no anxiety, there
fore, about the continued abundant yield ot
our soil, and "the possibilities of our agri
cultural interests," in the languige of Mr.
, , Porter, "are as yet an unknown quantity."
The future undoubtedly has great things in
. store for the south, which, under the new
repine, and with honest and stable local
: governments, has at last entered upon a
' ew era of prosperity,

An old colored minister in a sermon on

SOME WOMEN'S TRIBUTES TO MAN.
I know a man who can write gentle, gos
siping letters like women. He is straight
minded and tender-hearted, with immense
energy and great good spirits.'1 lie smokes
pipes, goes out snooting, plays t'illiards and
cricket, is charming with all the grumbling
old men and women. He enjoys life and
all its good thing with a grateful temper,
and makes most people happy ubout him.
He belongs to the school of athletic Chris
tianity. Anna Isabclle Thackeny.
With a vacillating man I never had any
pntienco. If Esau choso to be foolish and
sell his birthright, I like him to do it with
a dash aud a spirit, and a will of his own;
not to stand shilly-shallying between the
two, hankering after tho one, yet wonder
ing whether tho other is not better. All
the flavor is gone out of his mess, and like
the dog of Esopian fame he loses both
meats in that fathomless river, where idle
regrets lie buried never to be recalled.
Here if the man who possesses in perfec
tion that sure crituriou of abilities, a great
power over the minds of his acquaintances;
in a high degree that rare talent, the art of
conciliation, without the aid of flattery.
Ho is master of one great advantage in con
versation, that of not knowing what to say,
but exactly when to 8.1,14 it; in knowing
when to forbear. He has tho air, manners
and sentiments of a gentleman, without any
sacrifice ot his .sincerity. Hannah Moore.
Do I thjuk men are strange things? I
do, indeed. However, they regard tho po
sition of women in another ligt than they
used to do; thev arc beginning to approve
ami aid instead of ridiculing or checking
us in our efforts to be wio. I must say,
for my own part, whenever I have been so
happy as to sharo the conversation of a
really intellectual man I hive not felt that
I was accounted a superfluity, Charlotte
When a man becomes only an elegant
piece of furniture in a woman's life, to bo
dusted at times and admired at others, it
will be generally found that he endures the
annoyance of neglected furniture little
more. The level that we strike in the soul
that touches us most nearly is almost sure
to be the high water mark of our own. E.
It is hardly an argument against 0 man's
strength of character that he slmuld bo
apt to be mastered by love. A man may
be very firm in other matters, and yet bo
under a sort of wilcherv from a woman.
Who shall measure the subtlety of those
touches which convey the (juality of the
soul, and make a man passion for one wo
man differ from his plosion lor another as

Chinese lanterns anO glass panels. George
' Rumor has a friend, a western gentle
man, who brought his little girl into the
Highlands of the Hudson, where, for the
first time in her life, siie saw mountains.
They were tittiug on the piazza of tbe
West Point hotel, looking on tho finest
mountain and river view that is to be seen
east of the Rocky Mountains, and tho lit
tle girl had been standing reverently, with
her hat in her hand, for somo minutes
looking now at tho river, now at the moun
tains, now at the clouds when, with a
sudden inspiration, she waved her hat
above her head, and cried out, "Hurrah for
God!" It was an act of genuine worship;
a true answer to David's cull on every soul
to make a joyful noiee unto the Lord.
Cincho-Quinine is used with great suc
cess by physicians as a substitute tor Sul

A PLACE WHERE IRON IS UN
KNOWN. Boston Transcript.
Tho new Mexican inter-oceanic railway
across the Islimus of Tehuantepcc is to pass
through tho State of Chiapas, which proba
bly contains the only population in the
world which possesses no iron, nor any
thing of tho nature of an iron industry,
even of the crudest form. For tho dis
tance ot eighty miles around Palenque, tho
capital, not a single blacksmith can be
found, and the only articles of iron are
axes and machctas,' imported from the
United States. Nails are unknown, all the
woodwork being held together by cords of
the tendrils of vines; and even their tor
tilla, or corn cakes, is prepared by grind
ing the mhize between stones. Tho new
railway through this territory has clearly a
well defined educational as well as com
mercial development to undertake.
Is Youn Haiu Falling on Turning
Quay? "London Hair Color Restorer," the
most cleanly and delightful article ever in
troduced to the American people. It is
totally different from all others, not sticky
or gummy, and free from all impure in
gredients that render many other prepara
tions obnoxious. It thickens thin hair, re
stores gray hair, gives it new life, cures
dandruff, causing the hair to grow where it
has fallen off or become thin, does not soil
or stain anything, and is so perfectly and
elegantly prepared as to make it a lasting
hair dressing and toilet luxury. London
Hair Color Restorer is sold by oil druggists
at 75 cents a bottle, or six bottles for 4.

Bkown's Household Panacea is the
most effective pain destroyer in the world.
Will most surely quicken tho blood wheth
er taken internally or applied externally,
and thereby more certainly relieve pain,
whether chronic or acute, than any other
pain alleviator, and it is warranted double
the strength of any similar preparation.
It cures pain in the side, back or bowels,
sore throat, rheumatism, toothache, and all
aches, and is the great reliever of pain,
"Brown's Household Panacea" should be

acea m a tumbler of hot water (sweetened
if preferred), taken at bed time, will break
up a cold. 25 cts. a bottle.
Mucn Sickness, undoubtedly with chil
dren, attributed to other causes, is occasion

Mrs. Wikslow's Soothing Syrup. Rev.
Sylvanus Cobb thus writes in the Boston
Christian Freeman: We would by no
means recommend any kind of medicine
which we did not know to be good par
ticularly for infants. But of Mrs. Wins
low's Soothing Syrup we can speak from
knowledge; in our own family it has proved
a blessing indeed, by giving an infant
troubled with colic, pains, quiet sleep, and
tho parents unbroken rest at night. Most
parents can appreciate theso blessings.
Here is an article which works to perfec
tion, and which is harmless; for tho sleep
which it affords the infant is perfectly nat
ural, and the little cherub awakes as
"bright as a button." And during the
process of teething, its value is incalcula
ble. We have frequently head mothers suy
that they would not be without it from the
birth of the child till it had finished with
the teething siege, on nny consideration
whatever. Sold by all druggists. Twenty
five cents a bottle.
Edwin Boo'rri in Rheumatism. Edwin
Booth suffers terribly sometimes from rheu

He takes refuge, however, in a well-smoked
corncob pipe when the attack is on him,
using no other medical treatment than a
preparation originally tested by his brother-in-law,
J. II. Magonigle. This affords him
almost instant relief, and in place of in
dulging iu profanity when the lheumatism
nips him, he calls for Giles' Liniment
Iodide Ammonia, which he buys by the
gallon. Giles' Pills cures Erysipelas. Sold
by all druggists. Send for phamphlet.

prevent a fit of sickness with its attendant
expense, care and anxiety. All women

THE EQUITABLE LIFE

120 BROADWAY NEAV YOKK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.
After the policy has been in force for three years.
" The Equitable Life has paid since its organization to
January 1st, 1880, 51,882,736, and closed its
books upon that date without a contested or past due claim."
