Long Island, last Mon day, a fair was held for the beueflt ef tho rrctbytorlan Church, aud one of the tent booths had the sign. Admission 6 cents. To Kin the Baby, '.'i cent. It was soon known that "the babies" were sweet young girl 1 to 1 yean old and soon the "postofHoe," lcmowa.W stand, the Halting well other ctrca fair fake wero-diserted. The -Wr had not been thoroughly advertised a the -babies'' were bashful and did art want too much patronage but, nevtr thele, the petrous had to be formed into the line ana passed in an endless streams into the tout. It we curious to note how many youug men, old men, bald heads aud dudoa generally wonld rush around to the rear of the line and get a second whack. The new spread to adjacent village and toon half of Long Island was there, every possible conveyance being char tered. lint the only painful feature of the entertainmeut, In addition to the fail ure to advertise It extensively sari the dispatch waa the fact Uiat several nice young men whose best girl occupied prominent positions in the tout made a disturbance several promising Mat tituok affair are "off." Moreover the rival parish Iu tho village the Meth odistprofessed to be bcautlflod at tho method takcu by the I'resbyterlan to reap pecuuiery gain aud In pulpit Is expected to thunder upon the subject ou Sunday next at 10-.au o'clock. The Ixng Island Railroad Company are alio doing some tali kicking. They say that had they been advised of It by even tho smallest hint, they could have run excursion trains from New York, every fifteen miuutoe aud, in stead of raising :W0, representing 1200 klsac for tho baby, the Presbyte rian could have raised enough money to have built a ehurcb. One point in tho description was overlooked. All the ugly, old girl of iue congregation objected to the game. Cost of Iron-Maiing In Pennsylvania and Me looik. I ho furnace located in Eastern rcnnsylrauia are tho ones that have felt roullicm competition most serious ly. It Is their market especially that 'the South has Invaded, though the time may come when Southern Iron will be a important a factor cvee In l'ittsburg as it Is to-day iu Philadelphia, New York aud other seaboard point. Hence a comparison of the cost of iron making iu tho South aud Iu Eastern Pennsylvania will be of iutorest as giv lug the relative advantages of the two point where the rivalry Is now most felt. The report of Labor Comuds. sioner Wright gives the cost of iron making at eight Eastern Pennsylvania furnace as ranging from . 13.62 ton to $16.35 a ton, the average cost being $16.11 a ton. The average cost for eighteen Southern furnaces, which in cluded some small plant not running undor favorablo conditions, was 10.70, or $4.81 less than the average cost of these Eastern Pennsylvania furnaces. Two of theso Pennsylvania furnaces produced their irou at a cost of $16.36 aud $1 ().).' a ton respectively, oue at $15.39 and oue at $16.60, whilo a num ber of Southern furuacc mado this Iron at from $8.65 to $10 a ton. Iu these cases the difference is so striking s to show tho impossibility of any but the very best located of Eastern Penuyalvauia furnaces continuing to make iron iu competition with South ern furnace. Tho full ligure on this subject gives to-day must convince even tho most skeptical that the day of tho South' supremacy In Iron mak ing Is not far distant. Mauufacturer's Record. We like a Liar.
