This family of chickens are kept laying all the while for the Louisville market, at 25 centa per doz en tbe year round. The hens make their own nests and furnish eggs by the million. This would be a good place for an editor to iucrease bia mental faculties, as eggs and fish enlarge the convolution of the brain. If tbe editor waa not a temperance man, a small qumtity of Golden Wedding and augar mixed in these fresh eggs might serve as an antidote againrt malarial fever.

AND WE HOPE THE ' LAST, ON THE TARIFF. ' To th Editor of Tha atrriaiown Oaaett : Your correspondent has declared that we are not an ' economist. If by that he means theorist, we plead guilty. We claim to be practical, and care more for the truth that ia in facta amT figures ef actual experience, than the impractica ble theories of learned men.' If I have mistaken his meaning, it was because be did not mean what he said. I have not attempted to seek any hidden meaning in his words. In his last article be takes up my il lustration of tbe cutlery products and attempts to show that it costs o ir peo ple ene-third more because of tbe duty. We produced in 1880 twelve million dol- lara worth which he thinks would havo sold for nine without the tariff. Dur ing that year cutlery makers paid $4,- 447,349 in wages to 10,500 workmen. Over a million dollars on ourslde ef the edger on that one item. On the money actually invested in that year the man ufacturer received a profit ef less than eight per cent, therefore were the duty taken off they must go out of the busi ness, and their array of workmen seek employment elsewhere. Again, take our iron and steel indus tries. Those establishments that turn out exclusively metal products, during the census year, gave employment to 339,345 workmen, paying them in wages $143,549,625." At a low estimate each worker represents a family of three persons making over a million souls de pendent on our iron manufactures alone. This does not include those industries n which iron is the main material used, as agricultural implements, nre arms and products of that class. Neither does it include the mining and other ndustries directly dependent on the ron works. These would mere than double the totals given. Then there are the farmers who produce food for host, the tradesmen who supply them and the thousand and oae professions that are interlocked with them in tbe daily pursuits of life. Yet tbe mni who employ them made a profit of less than ten per cent, during that year. Your correspondent gives the out put durlnz 1883 of our Sessemer steel rail mills at over twelve hundred thousand tons. Where he can get such figures I cannot imagine unless from some unre liable commercial estimate. In 1880 it was only 741,000 tons, and it has hardly doubled in three dull years. Such a wonderful increase would be very grat ifying to me as a protectionist, but as these figures are not official and hardly reliable, let us examine those of tbe census. Our s is tbe greatest metal consuming country in the world. In that year our workers turned out $297,- 000,000 worth of exclusively iron and steel products. Is it desirable that this ramense sum be sent abroad yearly to fill British and German coffers ! How loag could we stand such a drain? Our agricultural exports would not pay, for they new take all they need. A great cry of revenue reformers is that manufacturers are making immense profits. An easy thing to say but hard to show. By the census the total out put was over five billion dollars, the amount paid in wages and material waa nearly four and a half billion, leaving an apparent profit of less than one bil lon dollars. From this must be taken the large amount necessary to compen sate for the time ef those who are not borne on the wage roll, superintendents, who have an interest in tbe business, and the proprietors of the thousands of small establishments who do as much work as any of their workmen. Yet in the census computation are neither counted as hands employed, or as hav ing wages paid them. This element with tbe wear and tear of old, and the constant putting in of improved ma chinery, and otber necessary expenses of which no note has been taken, will certainly reduce the net profit to ten per cent, or lower. Now. Mr. Editor, let my excuse for length, be the desire that this, the lead ing question, should be fairly presented to tbe peoplo woo are to decide it. i;hi-uhix.

Wben this secretion steps, the bair begins at once te become dry. lus- terless, brittle and gray. Is . that the condition of your hair ? If so. applv 'arker's tialr Balsam at once. It will restore the color, gloss and life by re newing the action of nature. The balsam is not anoll, not a dye, but an elegant toilet article, highly appreciat ed because of its cleanliness.

Not long since mv health utterly broke down My system was full of malaria. My digestion became thoroughly disordered and my nerves were in a wretched state. I was languid, ate little aad without enjoying it, and had no strength or ambition to .preform even my light household duties. Medical treatment failed to reach the seat of the trouble. t he disease which seemed to be weak ness of all the vital organs progressed until I bad several attacks which my physicians pronounced to be acute cn: restion of the stomach. The last of thesowaaa desperate struggle and I eiven ud to die. As the crisis had Dartiallv oassed. mv husband heard of the merits of PARKER'S TONIO as an ingigorant in just such sases as mine.
