I it is now claimed that it was not a mob
who killed tbe assailant ol President
Diaz, of Mexico, but that the man met
his death at the hands of the police,who
should have protected him. If this story
be true the avengers did not pursue
American methods at all, for in this
country, as a rule, officers of the law do
their best to uphold it.
President McKinley has received a

It is now announced that the Nicaragua

The fact that iron can be made cheaper
in the South than iu the Noith, and of
better material also, is a strong argu?
ment in favor of locating the armor-plate
factory in this section. Besides this ad?
vantage, however, it would ^be in much
less danger from attack by n foreign foe
in case ol war than if located'on the sea?
board. Every legitimate intluence will
be brought to bear upon the board by the
competing localities,but as the South can
present the most substantial claims for
the location of It he plant, some place in
this section should be selected as the site,
and why not Roanoke?
The ready sale of Southci n iron is one
of the most hopeful signs of the increas

fall nnd approaching winter. Cincinnati
agents for tho larger iron making con?
cerns of Alabama state that the outputs
of many r-outhern furnaces are already
sold up to the end of this year, while one
of the leading companies hns orders
enough to run until February. Sellers
are not even anxious for new business,
being convinced of a further advance in
the near future, and having as much as
they can do to keep u" shipments '?n or?
ders already booked. One of the largest
Birmingham producers has found it nec?
essary not to sell for this year's delivery
for fear that it will bo impossible to
make iron to fill additional orders. Other
companies are contracting with consum?
ers for their legitimate wants to Decem?
ber 81 at present prices, aud there Is ap?
parently no desire on the part of produc?
ers to create a boom. They feel that the
conditions are favorable' for sustaining
prices at a somewhat higher level during
a long period and they are content to let
the market take its natural course.
While this is the situation in regard to
the iron industry there is a good demand
for Southern cotton and other staples and,
what is better still, the people by raising
their own meat and biead stuffs will have
enough to live on and be ab'e to lay aside
a good part of the money received for
thoir crops for future contingencies. This
is indeed a gratlf) ing outlook.
1 HE SKIES ARE BRIGHTER.
The press from nearly all parts of the
country report signs of returning pros?
perity, nnd now that the great coal
miners' strike of Pennsylvania and Ohio
has come to a close, it may be expected
that conditions in the sections affected
thereby will rapidly improve. Tho rise
in the price of wheat and other products
has put the balance of trade In favor of
this country nnd ia spite of the heavy
importations just before tho Dingley
tariff bill went, into effect there seems to
be no dauger, for some time to coftie at
least, of an outflow of gold
The low prices and general scarcity of
money kept the great mass of the people
to the closest margins of economy and
brought purchases of all kinds to a mini?
mum, but now that tho farmer is receiv?
ing something for his products a revival
of business has followed which is carry?
ing its benefits aud blessings in every di
lection. With better prospects before
them the people arej making purchases
which were long deferred and improve?
ments are iu progress which were.long
delayed. These demands have called for
supplies and as a result industries have
started up all over tho country and there
i? a general revival of btibiness which
promises to leMl to permanent p-osper
ity. Famines and scarcity of food in for?
eign lauds first created the demand for
American products and as the basis of all
wealth is in the soil nearly every depart?
ment of 'ndtiBtry and trade in tL is coun?
try has been materially benefited.
Ronnoke city, which has held up re?
markably under the long financial depres?
sion of the country generally,already feels
the effects of the business revival, ns wtU
be seen from Interviews with merchants,
bankers and others, nnd the people here
are looking to tho future with hope aud
confidence. They know that they live in
a section rich in resources and that this
city is the gateway through which an ex?
tensive trnde and commerce'must pass in
every 'direction. The extensive indus?
tries located hero also give the city great
importance ns a distributing center,
while contributing largely to the proa
peilty 'of the people. Thb buf dings
erected this year are'believed to bo tho
lorerunr ers of rrore extended operations
in that line next season, with the result
that Roanoke will enter upon a career of
stetdy growth which will continue with?
out interruption for years to come. There
are ample room and opportunities here
for the upbuilding of a great city and ns
everything is possible under favoriug con?
ditions to industry and enterprise there
is every reason to believe that the Magic
City of the Southwest will become all that
its Jwell-wishers can expect before ^the
lapse of many years.
WHEAT AND CORN.
With the rise In the price of wheat In?
dian corn has also advanced considerably
in value. People iu foreign countries
have been slow to appreciate the palata?
ble and nutritive qualities of this cereal
under proper culinary conditions, but in
this country and in tho South especially
its value as a food product b: fully rec?
Since the early days of tho English set?
tlement of Virginia, when Captain John
Smith and bis followers, if they could not
persuade the Red Men to sell them corn
would take it by force, the people of
this State have been accustomed to tho
use of corn meal in the making of bread
and on many occasions they have found
it a very desirable substitute, for Hour
from wheat or rye. As most of the States
further South were settled largely by
Virginians this liking for corn bread is
.;ust as pronounced among'the white and
black people there as in the ^Old Domin?
ion herself. Many'ways have been de?
vised for cooking it, and it is found now
a-days on many tables of the North and
West as well as in the Snith, but to a
really'hungry man the old-fashioned pone

and ash-cake with buttermilk cannot be
During the civil war tbo Confederate
soldier when worn out with inarching and

Spot Gash Money Savors,
stand a charge of the boys in grey had
the general in command assured them of
such a treat in store for them immedi?
ately behind the enemy. While the white
men of the South generally'enjoy eating
well-prepared bread from corn meal, it is
the colored man's joy and hope, and with
a plenty of hog, hominy and veg? tables
he was as near a picture of happiness
and contentmeut in slavery times as
could have been presented by any race in
the world. It is not meant by this to
infer that the white man or the black
man of the South is disposed to sneer at
the qualities of wheat bread, .for such is
not the case. There are times whe" they
fully enjoy a meal made up largely of
Hour bread; butjis a stand-by and as
something that comes inoro within the
range of the average purchasing power
it is very hard to And a colored mau or
woman ready to decry the value of corn
meal as a food product.
The high price of wheat aud the cheap?
ness of corn as compared with the^ tlrst
named cereal has suggested to North?
ern millers the importance as a matter of
economy and profit to them of combining
the Hour and meal in such quantities
that the adulteration will not materially
nffect the value of the "Hour" thus pro?
duced. The experiment has already been
tried with success, it is said, the only
question being how far the addition of
corn meal can be carried. It is even sug?
gested that a moderate ^adulteration wil'
not nffect the taste of the bread and that
ns a matter of economy the plan should
be tried by the mills of the South. In
view of the fact that wheat may be higher
yet before the demands of foreigu coun?
tries have beeu met, it Is possible that
experiments with a mixture of wheat and
corn In the productionjof "Hour" will be?
come quite general, without seriously
affecting the pnlatableness of the combi?
nation. At auy rate it would be a cheaper
product than unadulterated wheat Hour
an'1 might come more within the range
of the purses of the poor.

Crimson clover is a nntivo of Itnly
nnd other parts of southern Europe. It
is not entirely new to this country, bnt
has only recently begun to attract at?
tention. It was first introduced in this
country by tho lato Dr. Haradin, a flor?
ist of Delawure. Being a groat lover of
flowers, ho was attracted to tho plant
by its bounty, which is hardly exceeded
by tho finest flower and adorns yard or
garden. Tho beautiful deep green,
which may bo seen all through tho win?
ter, when not entirely covered with
enow, grows deeper and brighter as
spring advances, until early in May,
when the Mowers appear, and tho field
changes from a deep green ton brilliant
crimson, making u sight to behold and
to remember. At first its valno as a for?
age plant was not understood, aud as a
soil restorer it was unknown. Tho prog?
ress of the plant in public favor was
rather slow. Every one admired its
beauty, and numerous plots were growu
for ornamental purposes, but years
elapsed before farmers nwoko to its

Tho house was erected by a woll to

for a dwelling for his family, but hud

subjection to lightning. It has never

THE LAND OF GOLD!
New York and Alaska Gold Exploration and Trading Company.
Is formed for mining, transportation j
and trading purposes, and the first step
taken was to acquire 2,000 acres of land
in the best gold region of Alaska, which
Is a very substantial investment. This
company la not. satisfied witn this land
alone, but is following *he rush and dis?
coveries of the Klondike and other sec?

representative on the ground has secured
some of the richest properties in that
land of fabulous wealth.
The organization of this company Is
with its management conservative and
safe, offering rare opportunities to in?

to wrest fortune from the hands of fate.
Through tho golden gates and into the
beautitul waters of San Francisco bay
steamed the modest little craft "Excel?
sior" on the morning of July 14, 1*07.
No salvos of artillery marked her arrival.
No whistle blew a welcome homo. No
dipping pennants indicated that a few
hours later her name would !><? carried
around the world and l>e upon the lips of
millions of people. Hut such was the ar?
rival of the Excelsior, bearing the follow?
ing individuals and their treasure:
Wm. Stanley, Seattle, $115,000; Henry
Anderson, a Swede, $5,000, and a supply
of dust and * half interest in his mine
unsold: Frank Kelly, of Los Angeles,

mill in that country; Clarence J. Berry,
of Southern California, $100,000 from
one mine and the owner of several others;
Robert Kooks, $20,000, and many others
on the same boat, and the steamer Port
hind arriving later brought many more.
Numbers have returned since with large
fortunes that are being reported daily by
the press. The riches of this country is
far ahead of any other ever discovered.
