Prestideut Harri son will be re-elected; if the electiou be thrown into the House, and many of the shrewdest observers in all parties are of the opinion that it will be, Mr. Cleveland Swill, of course, be elected president. A cablegram from England, stating that a bullock shippet from New York, had arived there with a genuine c3ase of - pluro-pneumonia created a stir inl the department of Aglicullture, and ir. BSamo, who, as chief of the bureau of animal industry of that department, has been familiar with the long and. bestout I ly claims. successful tight against that disease in this country, pronounl"ws the statement to be false, and produces a cablegram from the United States meat inspector at London, stating that the bullock had ordinary eatarirhlal piee mlonia, conlttrac-ted during the voyage, as )proof.

Two members of the lo cal board of trade made a 1500 wager on the result of the elec:tion this week, and a mutual friend says they would both have been glad to have found an excuse to back out before the money was put up. If there Is no election by the peo ple the wager is to be "''draw."

Their stock of Cutlery, (inns and f'ist~,! has never been equaled in this city or any town this side of New ()Oreans which, with everything e!s-e they handle is sold at Rock Cottown Prices. They have an immense st, Vk of just what the trade needs, and this with their low prices is why the Southern Hardware Co, has worked up such a trade in both city and country. Don't forget that they are head qurters for SLevee Scrapers, and that their manufacturers, the Western Whretled Scraper Company make the best wheel and drag scra per made. For proof, ask any rail road and large levee contractor, and, 1 as they live by this kind of work, take their advice. We will not give their reply, but ask, and any of them s will tell you. You do not know that e forty-nine out of every fifty scrapers e used on the Mississippi river levees are the Western Scraper Company's. - The enterprising house, Southern Harpware Company, are sole agents for these scrapers, and it will pay you to investigate the diffore.ce be . fore buying.
