NJEAK THE DEPOT, MIDDLEBROOK. MISSOUHI. o SUITS MADE TO ORDER AT SHORT NOTICE And Perfect Satisfaction Guaranteed. M. BartlioMi has been very husv since his arrival in this country, with responding to social attentions and af fairs pertaining to the erection of the "Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World," on Liberty Island, New York Harbor. He has had frequent confer ences with Gen. Stone, Engineer-in Chief of the Pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, and has made his final sug gestions as to the erection of the statue, It is not probable that the pedestal will be completed for two months yet, and will not be ready to receive the statue till late this winter. He says the en tire work cannot be completed before the close of next summer; that the statue is of such great size that it must be put up slowly and with the greatest care. He thinks it will take five months to get it securely placed on the pedestal. His plan is to have the ded idation on the 3d of next September. the anniversary, of the signing of the treaty of Versailles, which secured peace after the Revolutionary war and guaranteed the recognition of the American Republic. The New York World popular sub scription from the people completes the pedestal. A large amount of money is still required tor the erection or put ting together of thegreat statue, which when completed, will be thirty-five feet higher than the towers of the great Brooklyn Bridge.

Prosperity at the Vulcan. Greenville Journal: 'Last Monday Uuaries iNoble, tne mail carrier be tween this place and Piedmont, was Attacked after he left here with the mail by one John Robinson. Noble had sot about a half mile from town when Robinson saw him and took after him. Noble made good time in getting oat of the fellow's way, and while he was running Robinson shot at him four times. Noble returned to town and informed the officers about what had taken place, and they went and brought Robinson ; here... What object the latter had in doing what he did is not known.' He was drinking at the time. His was bound Over : in a bond of $300, and his trial will come oil next Tuesday before 'Squire Steph ens." - .u i i. : !;: Potoei Independent: "A singular accident happened about midnight oh Saturday to; Wm. Downey, employed in the Desloge lead mines. . Contrary to the rules of the company, - Downey started down the shaft on the ladder with a'fifty pound case of giant-powder en his shoulder. The decent is about 200 feet, with several resting platforms between the top and bottom of the shaft. Downey held the case of powder on his shoulder with one hand, depending on the other to lower himself down. He had decended only three steps when the case overbalanced, and in grabbing for it he let loose his hold on the lad der and fell about 40 feet, striking his head and shoulders on the side of ar large tub standing on the first landing or platform. At first it was thought As has already been stated, a few days ago, the v ulcan Iron and Steel-works have been shut down tor the holidays, but will again re sume operations on Monday, January 4, when another blast furnace will be lighted up. This will give employment to fully 100 more men. At the time that negotiations were going on between the lessees of the present Vulcan works and the Steel VixiX Manufacturers' As - sociation there was a drawback, or hitch, as it has been learned, which delayed the man agement in starting up until later than was expected. This hitch was due to a number ot the members of the association refusing to give their consent to the lessees of the Vulcan to manufacture steel rails. This opposition was finally overcome, after considerable wrangling, and the works were immediately started up, though rails were not manufact ured at once. This, many could not under stand, as the Vulcan has such fine facilities for that kind of work, but the reason why steel rails were not put oh' the market as soon as the company got permission to do so can now plainly be seen. For the past two months there has been an advance in steel rails at Pittsburg, the center market point for this kind of work in the country, from $26 to $35 a ton, and it has been further learned that the manufacturers are refusing orders even at the latter figures. . "With steel rails on toe market at $35 a ton the business be comes profitable to the manufacturer. About February 1, it was learned yesterday on the oesi auiooriiy, ine v uican will start ud in full blast manufacturing eteel railsi The number of men that will be required for 'the new start will be over 500, and the works will be tn mil operation both day and night. mooe-uemocrai.
