The Secret
of the universal success of
Brown's Iron Bitters is sim
ply this : It is the best Iron
preparation ever made; is
compounded on thoroughly
scientific, chemical and
medicinal principles, and
does j ust what is claimed
it—no more and no less.
By thorough and rapid
assimilation with the blood,
it reaches every part of the
system, healing, purifying
and strengthening. Com
mencing at the foundation
it builds up and restores lost
health—in no other way can
lasting benefit be obtained.

It is doubtful if aa many and aa good
biddsrs will be preaant the next time
the Almshouse property ie offered for
sale. The Board of Trustees having
directed a sale by lots according to the
plot or map adopted, should have at
leaat began tbe aale aa advertised, and
giving tboee present who came to buy
a ohanoe to bid. If the prices offered
would have been loo low tbe Traitées
ooald have at any time stopped or ad
journed tbe sale; but 325 50 a foot, by
tbs block or square at Front and
Broome atreeta would not seem a
very bad "starter."
Tbe decision by tbe Trustees at
their meeting just before the sale to
ohaoge tbe mode of sale advertised,
end to offer tbe whole properly in
bulk, whioh is reported io have been
done ip requeit, would seem to be in
tbe interest of speculators. It cer
tainly is not in the in'ere-t of tbe gen
eral pub ic, wbo ought to have a
chance to bid at a sale of the publie
property, and thereby give tbe land
a ohanoe to selli'self.

Birth of a Sea Lion.
A sea lion belonging to W. 0. Coup's
show, which arrived in Baltimore on
Tuesday evening on route from New
York to Augu ta, Qa., ytsterday gave
birth to a cub at Union deoot. The
mother has bean in captivity abiut two
months, baviog been taken on tbe Cali
fornia coa.'l aud forwarded to Central
Park, New York. Oa Monday last she
was placed in a cage or van such as it
used foribe exhibition ot semi-ampbib
tous animais, which contains a lank ot
water. The van was placed on a freight
car In charge of Mr. ätauley Carl, an
experienced keeper, for transportation
to Augusta, where tbe show is now in
winter quarters. Accompanying
another car containing a large number
of birds and monkeys. Tbe latter
suffered very much from the wintry
weather which prevailed yetterday, and
it became necessary to wrap some if
them up to preserve their lives. The s *a
lion, however, being a native cf a colder
climate, did not require uuuaual atten
tion. Tuesday uigbt was - passed at
Union depot iu order to give tbe animals
a rest. Yesterday morning Mr. Carl
made the into resting discovery that an
addition to his stock bad taken place,
but unfortunately the new comer was
dead. Tbe little fellow was tfadaik
seal color and weighed about ten
peunds. Very fine soft hair covered the
body, and a beard s milar to that of a
full-grown cat surrounded the mouth.
Tbh feet were perfect, eyes well opeo,
aud the form was a complete copy iu
miniature of the mother. It is thought
that the cub was alive at birth,but in the
limited space ot the cage was killed by
ihe molt, er lying ou it .—Balt. Sun.

the Bingham House, He said that
when he came over for the last
match but one, Martin's company
was forcedon him and he was induced
to visit his saloon, and Martin took
the few hundred pounds he brought
a consideration. As he
didn't propose to accede to Martins,
