readers can hardly fail to have their
attention called this week to the la
test combination of improvements in
that most useful ot all domestic im

we understand it, a machine b r
family use should meet first of all
th?se requirements: It should be
simple in its mechanism; it should
run easily; it should do a wide
range of work; it should be light,
handsome anil durable. 1 hese con
ditions the heeler A ilson, new
No. 9, certainly meets. It is even
acknowledged by its competitors to
be the best machine now in the mar- j
ket. Husbands will have noexcuse j

The case of the Winchester Re
peating Arms Company of New Ha
ven, as s ated by its Secretary to
our correspondent in New Haven, is
a strikingiliustration ofthe effect of
the tariff upon American industries.
This company makes both ammuni
tion and arms. It cannot export
ammunition because it is forced to
puv a duty equivalent to 73 per cent,
upon the lead that enters into this
product. It can and docs export
anus because the value of the mate
rial is relatively so small and work
manship and invention count for so
much tliar foreign com pet i ors arc
battled. The labor employed in
making arms is skilled anil the
wages it recieves are correspondingly
high, vet "cheap” foreign labor is
unable to cope with iis product in
forigu markets. Plainly here is a
case where tic tariff is shown t<» Ik*
unnecessary to secure good wage
Equally tte wages of labor in rna. -
iu<r ammunition would be advanced
by°the abolition of the tariff on le d,
because the market would beextead
ed. production woglu increase, an<»
there would be a greater demand for
labor. At the same time the eon
sumer would be benefited.—A*.

Myers of Sharpsburg, Md., were
! married in the Lutheran Church of
the latter place, on Wednesday, De

! The ceremony was witnessed by a
multitude of friends. A contribu

•‘Promptly at 12:30 the wedding
party arrived and inarched lip the
aisle, preceded by two ushers, while
the beautiful strains of the Wed
ding March were rendered. Rev.
Mr. Jones officiated in his usual
pleasant manner, and Messrs -

The Grand Jurv of the Roane
County Circuit Court adjourned
after a four days’ inquiry into the
murder of Rev. Ryan and the lynch
ing of Duff and Coon. Judge Flem
ing, in his address to the jury, se
vere * criticized the sensational
statwaents made by Detective Bur
nett a id others, through the papers,
that the lynching of Duff and Coon
had been done for political purpos
es, and that the lynching party had
been composed altogether of demo
cracts, while the victims had all
been Republicans. The Judge, wlo
is himself a Republican, said the
statements were false and malicious,
and were an insult to the dignity
and integrity of the people of Roane
County. The juiy indicted Perry
Drake and Dan. Cunningham for
the murder of Rev. Ryan, but found
no indictments against the alleged
lynchers. The attorneys who were
present said they waited four days
for Burnett and his alleged testiuio

At a meeting of the State execu
1 tive committee of the prohibition
! part)' of West Virginia, just held in
I Grafton, it was decided to enter the
* campaign in this State next year
with a full ticket in the field. This
action was unanimous. A repre
j seutative will be sent to the uation
! al convention, and nominations will
be made for State, congressional,
legislative and local officers. Steps
are to be taken at once to perfect
; the organization of the party
throughout the State.
The Monroe Watchman says:—
Could anything be more supreme
ly foolish than the action of this
committee of the so called Prohibi
tion party V Instead of leaving the
prohibition question to be settled
• upon its merits by the people of the
i State irrespective of party, they se
riously endanger the very cause
j they profess to champion by rush
j ing into the political arena with a
party organized to capture the otli
1 ces, without the slightest hope of so
! doing. In this movement the hand
of the ambitions or revengeful dera
agogue may plainly be seen. The
I real i ends of Prohibition would do
j well to throttle this demonstration
j at the outset.

A niitliigulihcd Clergyman's Test I*
Rev. R. M. Pickens, President of the
Methodist Protestant Church of South
Carolina, writes from Greenville:
“ About four years ago I was attacked
with what the physicians pronounced (
neuralgic rheumatism, accompanied with i
erysipelas. My appetite failed me entirely,
and I had an intermitting pulse and very
irregular pulsations of the heart. A ter
rible pain soon came into my chest and
shoulders, and I bees me so helpless that I
could attend to no business at all. The
pains were movable, and would sometimes
pass from one part of my body to another.
Finally the erysipelas broke out on my left
hand and arm, and produced much swell
ing. I was for eighteen months afflicted
in this way. and of course used a great
many kinds of medicines, but nothing gave
me relief. Friends finally persuaded me
to try Swift's Specific I noticed a decided
improvement while taking the first bottle.
1 continued its use until 1 had taken about
one dozen bottles, when I found myself
sound and well again, with no sign of dis
ease left except a stiffness in my hand, a
result of the erysipelas. While taking
the medicine I gained on an avtrage two
pounds of flesh per week. I think S. S S.
a valuable medicine, and I frequently
recommend it to my friends."
