j Of todays buyers of EALL and WINTER Suits
■ and Overcoats, will make straight for

! because they've learned from experience that they
i can always do better here than elsewhere. To those
who have never bought of us we appeal for a look
at our Clothes. The man who fails to see them is
unfair to himself. Naturally you are in favor of the
place you have been buyiug form, but everyone
should, for self protection, take an occasional look
through the market. We say this to our own cus
tomers as well as to others.
There is no charge for looking, and }ou will not
be importuned to buy. If our clothes don't talk for
themselves, we need not talk for them. But it is
perfectly safe to say you will see clothes that will
astonish you, clothes .hat you never dreamt could i
be bought ready made. And we sell them very i
cheep.

THE RICH PATCH MINES.
A d'spatch dated at Philadelphia on
the 23rd inst., has the following signifi
cant statement:
•'A charter was effected yesterday of
the British bark, Highland, to load 2000
I tons of cas ( -iron pities for London direct.
"This will be the first full cargo of
i the kind ever Shipped to Euglaud from
I tnis or any other American port. A
laige quantity of this material, however,
| has been exported to Glasgow by tbe
j Allan Line steamships, a contract to
j supply that cry with American drain
age.aud water pipe having been secured
by Philadelphia dealers."
A year or more ago a gentleman who
( had largely been engage 1 in tin mauu
.' fad ure of iron pipe at Pittsburg, Penu.,
I was on to Rich Patch receutly invest!
igatirjgjls value, when he remarked,
\ ihat he would be one cf a company to
j raise 52,000,000 to purchase the tract cf
i it,ooo acres and establish a pipe factory J
He stated that he could in twelve mout .8
after tbe iodotty was fairly in operation i
command the market for this product
iv the United States and run every iron
! pip- factory out of Uie country.
He was of tbe opinion that in noplace
|iv the United Slates with which he wan
j acquainted coulJ be found so many ad
vantages for making iron pipe at a
minimum cost, and that ne could not
j only control the American market, but
! successfully invade the markets of the
| world. At that time he dull not iu
j duce thegentlemen with him to euterat
j ouce in the scheme as they had been
: trained in other lines of business and
were not prepared to enter upon a pro
j posed experiment at so large a risk.
The recent purchase of the Rich Patch
J property by Philadelphia parties, who
j are financially able to establish any in
I dustry they might wish, encourages the
hope that they will weigh well the judg
ment of the gentleman to whom we ie
f fer. as we!! as the fact contained In the j
I paragraph quoted above. The iron ore
resources of the Rich Patch property
| are practically unlimited and with such
combination of interests as are within
tbe range of probability and what we
know of the contemplated plans of its
!re<:eut purchasers, we are inclined to J
tbe conclusion that we may expect re- j
( maikable industrial aciivity iv that lo-
J cslity in the near future.
Bearing upon the iron pipe i.'idustiy,
and pertinent to the remarks above, we j
Bud the following forcible statement in j
j the Bar.i.nore Manufacturers Record of j
yesterday. We do rot hesitate to say j
jtbat there is no place in the United'
States where such an industry as rhe
Cincinnati firm represent, could be|
I more profitably oper-.ted than at Rich '
Patch. Tbe high per cent of metaiie'
iron that the ore* of (his property
I carry, the proximity of fuel, of far
j superior quality to that of Middlesbor-;
j ough or Birmingham and the cheapness
iof labor constitute advantages ihat \
shouid assure success without a doubt
and demonstrate that both iron pipe!
and basic steel could be produced there
at ie-s cost than at any other industry j
It is rather singular that in referring
to tbe South Virginia should be stu
diously oinitied as an iron making
I State. Neither Tennessee or Alabama
has mineral resources superior to those j
of this State, and when facilities for
market are considered in connection
with the class of our ores, fuel and la
bor it should be apparent to the most
superficial iuvestigator. that Virginia is
in the lead iv cheap iron making, and
when the South is mentioned sheshouid
not be overlooked iv the procession of
industrial progress and mateiial devel
opment. The Record sa>s:
What the Manufacturers' Record has
for years been proclaiming as the inev
I itable pre eminence of the South in in
dustrial interests is gradually being ac l
cepted as true by the most careful in j
of thi3 couatry day" I
adds new strength to the Souths posi- j
tion, and shows how rapidly the trend 1
of manufactures is iv this directlou.
Last week we printed the views of the
president of the Addystou Pipe & Steel
Co., of Cincinnati, the largest iron-pipe
making concern in the United Slates,
in which he frankly admitted the
Souths pre eminence in iron interests
and the necessity of his company build
ing a large pipe plant in Alabama in or
der to Secure the advantages of that dis
trict. The whole iron situation of the
South is growing upon the World's at
tention. Men who eyeu five years ago
had little faith in the Souths ability to
stand the final tests of extreme depres-1
sion, combined with the v, st ore discov
eries iv the Mesaba region, now realize
that the South is today tbe most prom
ising iron district in the world. They
realize that every test has shown the
I inherent strength of the Booth's posi I
J tion, and that the in ..re tboroagolj the
I Souths iron-making f«--ilities are
Investigated the greater do they ap
pear. In the new era of steel-mak
ling already successful at Middles
borough, wi.li two Urge plauts
uuder contract at Birmingham, the
south is destined to hold a »ositiou in
steel affairs as important as it now does
in iron-making Exporting even now,
although this trade is the growth only of
about two years, an average ot ICOO
J tons of pig irou a day, Birmingham is
j setting the price for the woild's irou

The Death of Silver.
For the Spectator.
Whose grave is this Horatio ? Let's
read the inscription that's here writ. !
(Reading) '-Hera lies Silver. White j
with age, and feeble, be was set upon, i
and his bent form could not withstand
the stroke? which fell upon him. Six
teen blows his adversary strike, he
strake but one. He fell and died. We
shall not see his like again." And
is silver buried here? Methiuks I saw
his grave elsewhere. Yes, I have many
burial places seen, in my late wauder
ings. In all, an epitaph like this.
Ah, now I do recall that in my archae
ological research two years ago, I went
into the catacombs, and iv the furthest
part, beside the bones of the great I
Captain Marcus Aurelius Hannus I,
there was a tomb on which was writ j
thin fame inscription. And jet, llora-j
tio, did we not meet such an one, upon
the stepsof the Acropolis as we journied
to the Pantheon, yesterday? Horatio
let me look at thy pbylosophy, and sec
if there is writ, this name within, I fain
would know the history of this person
age. Maybe 'twas his ancestor who
died, but if so he is of ancient lineage,
and honorable. Aye, tis writ in jour
phylOsophy that lie has played with
Kimss, he has been sought by queens
and princes for his good fellowship. He
has made joyous hearts aud mauy,and he
has been the poor man's friend. What
would I give Horatio, to have his pedi
gree, a line of ancestry such as his, and
to have kept always such good com
pany ? But why, Horatio, have his line
