Three thousand people are out of em ploym nt at Frankford, in consequence of a shut-down of a number of mills. John Roach has contracted for the construction of two steamships for service between New York and Brazil. The value of the pig iron produced in this country last year was $73,000, 000 , a sum nearly as great as the com bined value of the gold and silver pro ducts. The big strike at the Disston Saw Works, Philadelphia, has ended. It originated from a refusal of the Arm to pay wages accoiding to scales in other saw factories, because their system of manufacture was entirely different. The oldest iron-ore mine in the Uni sed States that is now in operation is the Iron Ilill Mine in Delaware, which was discovered as early as 1084, and soon afterwards opened. Ore is still taken from this mine and used in Prin ciple Furnace, Mars land, the first stack for which furnace was built in 1723. A little friend of live years, who was always allowed to choose the prettiest kitten for his pet and playmate before the other nurslings were drowned, was taken to his mother's sick-room, the other morning, to see two tiny, new twin babies. He looked reflectively from one to the other for a minute or two, then, poking his finger into the cheek of the plumpest baby, he said, decidedly : "Save this one ! " iron 3,000-ton Delaware's Biography. The work of preparing the. new biographical history of Delaware is arduous and important one. It should have the encouragement of every one, for the presentation of the personal records of eminent men, past and present, in a compact and reliable book,will really prove alast ing benefit to the people among often the •horn they lived. T work of the biographer is hindered and even frustrated by the natural diffidence of representative men,who hesitate or refuse to give the facts desired for the compilation of such ft work. Sometimes the ereennry spirit of a publisher who cares more for his dollars than the value of the work he publishes, pre vents a proper completion of it be fore issue. In the present case the to have fallen into com petent hands. At any rate experi ence 1ms not been lacking to W. S. McNair, the author. He was the author and publisher of "The Bio graphiehl Encyclopedia of Pennsyl vania" that appeared in 1874, and was the first State work that ever satisfactorily completed. Af terward he had charge of such works in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and other States, and the books themselves attest the energy and efficiency of his labors. For the past ten years Mr. McNair has been resident of Wilmington and 1ms very large personal acquaintance throughout the city and State. Ho was connected with The Morning News about fours years and a half, and within the past few months he became more widely known through out the country as the compiler of some 200 columns of historical and biographical material published by the San Francisco Call in its great Grand Army editions, beginning August 3. He has opened in the Freie Presse building, No. 402 Market street. task seel was a office Candidate for Assessor. James B.
