AN IRON MAN’S VIEW.
What He Thinks of the Market and the Effect a War Between America and Eng land Would Produce. Mr. George H. Hull of the American Pig Iron Storage Warrant company of New York is in the city, stopping at the Morris. Speaking In reference to the price of pig iron with a State Herald representa tive, Mr. Hull says that the advance was due altogether to southern people; that southern Iron advanced gradually from $7 to $10 per ton, while Bessemer jumped from $9 to $16, and while Bessemer has declined to $12 southern Iron stands firm at $10. t , Relative to the effect of the probable war between England and America on the price of iron Mr. Hull said that while he did not anticipate such a crisis, yet should it occur it would be deplorable on all lines of business. That while America neither imports nor exports a great deal of iron, the market disturb ance as the result of a war between these two great nations would for a while at least affect the price of iron, as vrell as every other commpdity. In the war be tween the states, he said, for the first few months iron was almost worthless and then advanced as high as $80 per ton in the Cincinnati market. And should a war occur, which he did not anticipate, it could but result in the use of a great deal of iron in the manufacture of ves sels and other equipments, and naturally it would be much In demand and the price would range high. The southern furnaces, he says, have not sold much of their product for sev eral months, hence have on hand a very large supply, but when business settles down the demand, in his opinion, will be equal to the output; in fact, the demand will be greater than for several previous years. ___ Children Cry for Pitcher’s Castona.

According to the law of the survival of the fittest, Mr. James O’Neill has main tained for many years the exalted posi tion 0/ being considered the leading ro mantic actor of the decade. During his coming visit here he will not only play “Monte Cristo,” the play that served him as a vehicle to fame and for tune, but he will open the en gagement with "Virginius," shew ing that he is just as great in trag edy as in romantic drama. His ambi tion is not only to be ranked as the lead ing romantic actor, but also to secure for himself a prominent place among the few tragedians of the present day. "Virgin ius” is the original drama with which he has created such a stir this season and last, and he has, therefore, chosen that for the opening bill on Monday night next at O'Brien’s opera house. Mr. O’Neill has so many admirers of his immortal creation of Edmond Dantes in "Monte Cristo” that he has decided not to disappoint them, but will present Dumas' masterpiece in his usual perfect manner on the second night of the en gagement. “"talladeSa.

Mr. George DeWhiting has a crayon drawing of the warship Alabama, and he prizes it very highly. The drawing Is the artistic work of Miss Leila Mitch ell of this city. It is made from a photo graph taken of the Alabama as she lay off Cherbourg, and just before her fatal fight with the Kearsarge. These photo graphs sold In England Just after the battle like hot cakes, but very few of them are now in existence. The drawing by Miss Mitchell gives an artistic touch to the photograph, and represents the Alabama in pursuit of a fleeing mer chantman. The Alabama has all sails set. and Is under full steam. Her fore sail was the largest carried by any vessel afloat, and under both sail and steam she could run down any craft on the ocean. The merchant vessel has crowded on all sail in the vain effort to escape, and is flying down the wind like a frightened bird. It is the hopeless flight of the dove from the hawk. Mr. DeWhiting says that when Uncle Sam goes to war with John Bull over Venezuela he is going to fit out a vessel like the Alabama and give the sassy British sea-dog a drubbing that he will not soon forget. Saved His Life —by a fortunate dis covery in the nick of time. Hundreds of Fersons suffering rotn consumption have had the pro gress of the disease stopped, and have k been brought back to ft life and health by the a “Golden Medical uiscuvery ui UT. Pierce. Years ago Dr. R. V. Pierce, now chief consulting physician to the Invalids’ Hotel and Surgical Institute of Buffalo, N. Y., recognizing the fact that consumption was essentially a germ disease, and that a rem edy which would drive the germs and their poisons from the blood w ould cure consump tion, at last found a medicine which cured 98 per cent, of all cases, if taken in the earlier stages of the disease. The tissues of the lungs being irritated by the germs and poisons in the blood circulat ing through them, the germs find lodgment there, and the lungs begin to break down. Soon the general health begins to fail, and the person feels languid, weak, faint, drowsy and confused. This is the time to take Dr. Pierce’s Gold en Medical Discovery; it drives the germs and poisons from the blood, and has a sooth ing effect upon the dry cough. In cases of bronchitis the “Discovery” is invaluable. "Golden Medical Discovery” increases the amount and quality of the blood, thus invig orating and fortifymgtbe system againstdis ease and builds up wholesome flesh and strength after wasting diseases, as fevers Jmeumonia, grip and other debilitating af ec,ions JNO.

Offic9 Hours—8:30 a. m. to 12 m , 1:30 to 5:30 p. m. A Specialist treats only a special or particular class of diseases. I have the distinction of being the only physician in the South controlling sufficient practice In Private Dis eases to devote my whole time to their cure. This dally contact for year after year with such troubles gives experience. Experience la essential to success. My Medical Dispensary was established In the city of Birmingham August 3, 1887, for the exclusive cure of Private Diseases. Privacy is one of its special features. It Is so arranged that one patient never necessarily secs another. People who have social rela tions to sustain appreciate this. The very best ol people are often unfortunate and dislike to consult their family physicians through feelings of delicacy. To them L offer a safe, sure cure and perfect privacy. SYPHILIS—Many physicians claim that this disease cannot be cured—that is, en tirely eradicated from the system. I am willing to contract with any responsible person on the basis of no cure no pay. This is the way I guarantee cures. GONORRHOEA—If you have Gonorrhoea, Gleet, Lucorrhoea, Whites or any other troublesome discharge that fails to get well under ordinary treatment, come or write to me. If I fail to cure you I don’t want your money. URETHRAL STRICTURE cured on the same terms. The treatment Is painless. I perform all manner of surgical operations pertaining to my specialty, and through the Influence of anesthetics cause no pain. This Is a boon to the afflicted. There are many complications following Private Diseases, such as Bad Blood, Skin Bladder and Womb Troubles, Ulcers, Pimples, Blotches, Sore Mouth, etc., all of which quickly get well when the cause is removed. I wish to call special attention to my treatment of unfortunates suffering from the effects of Early Imprudence. Errors of Youth, Loss of Vitality, Loss of Manhood, Sex ual Debility, or any of the maddening clTects. Get well and be a man. Enjoy life as you should. Thousands of men and youths are occupying subordinate positions in life today who. if they were able to exercise their brain power to Its fullest capacity would instead be leaders. In a majority of cases I can cure my patients by mall treatment. I can furnish med icines from my Dispensary, or as I am a Regular Licensed Physician, I can write them prescriptions. If they prefer they can have them prepared by their home druggist. If you live in or near the city, call at my Private Dispensary. If at a distance, writo me your trouble. My book on Private Diseases and proper question lists will bo sent on application. ADVERTISING—A Specialist should advertise. His patients are scattered over a large extent of territory, and it Is right and proper for him to use the help of the news papers to let them know where they can get the relief they desire. Newspaper Reputations. I have received many complimentary notices from various papers, and I have had a few of them printed in my advertisements, but wishing to exclude everything that might possibly deceive anyone, I have omitted them. They are deceptive. They read as if they were personal endorsements of one’s character or ability, but they are not. The editor in many instances does not even know' you. They are given either in considera tion of a liberal contract for advertising or for cash direct at so much per line. You can buy them and have all you wish to pay for. You can have them say just what you please, then you can put them in your regular advertisement, as they are your prop erty. Stop and think a moment. Did you ever see one about a doctor that did not ad vertise? Ask the editor of any paper if the above is not the truth, pure and simple. E. E. Porker, President. w. J. Cameron, Cashier. W. A.
