had been opened and tho success of
iron making in Alabama had been ful

with four years ago shows that both

time, but competition has perhaps
slightly reduced proGts, although tliero
s plenty of margin yet, especially In
iron making. Uecenlly numerous small
industries havo been established, and
in every instance they havo been very
successful. An unusual amount of
building is being done this year, ami

AND IT WAS OWING TO THIS WEAKNESS
OK tits' THAT THE NKQrO ESCAPED.
Recently Madison Jolly, a well-
known negro 'of Grecnb county, was
attacked by a rattlesnake abcut three
miles from here. Ho threw his bund
les.down and made for the nearest
tree, which happened to bo a largo
persimmon tree loaded with ripo fruit,
into which he quickly climbed, knock
ing off some of the ripe persimmons as
ho made his way up into the tree.
When tho snake arrived at the foot of
tho tree, instead of climbing dp after
tho negro ho began to cat tho fruit
whioh had fallen to tho ground. Aft
or tho snako had finished devouring all
tho persimmons in Bight he began to
coil bimBelf around the tree prepara
tory to climbing it. Tho frightened
negro, seeing the snake had eaten tho
fallen persimmons, gathered a handful
and thiew them to the ground, then
the snake uncoiled from around tho
tree and began 'to oat the fruit the
darky had thrown down. This was
repeated several times, when tho darky,
bethought himself of a small vial of
morphine which he was carrying home
to his sick wife. He split open sev
eral persimmons and emptied tho con
tents of the vial upon them; and drop
ped them to his snakeship, who im

like a charm upon tne snake, and ho

and ran to a bouse near by and secur

fects of the morphine. The snake
was eighteen feet long, six inches in
diameter and bad forty-four rattles
and a buttoi on tho end of his tail,

Mrs. Cleveland's Grit.
A lady who was at the White
House on Tuesday night says that
there was no more nervousness dis
played by Mrs. Cleveland than by
any other lady in tho group. All
were deeply interested, and tho rest
of them did not attempt to control a
feminip'e impatience when it became
evident that tho revelations of the
evening were not going to bo entirely
happy. But Mrs. Cleveland was "true
grit ' all through. She chatted and
laughed and entered iuto tho discus
siou over Miss Eodicott's approaching
marriage as if that were the upper
most Bubject in her mind. As the
evening wore on the ladies, with true
womanly sympathy, began to git all
possible comfort out of the situation
and endeavored to buoy up the hopes
of the ineu. They all separated a
half hour after midnight and went
homo with the certainty of defeat.
Mrs. Cleveland aud her mother were
brave and smiling to the la-it; neither
showed by tho least word their great
disappointment. Mrs. Cleveland in
tends making her fast winter in the
White House the moat memdrablo of
her careor there. She will havo lots
of friends to stay with her from time
to time, and elio will vary the beaten
track of official hospitalities by a hum
ber of Icbs formal events whioh she
will arrange for the pliamre of ber
guests. As long as tho Indian sum
tner lasts tho President and Mrs.
Cleveland will remain at their country
place, but they intend to .spend a

Their ia a trcinciidous, altliotigb
hidden, cxoitctncnl in tho intiur lie
publioan circles over n report In circu
lation horo UiAt Mr. Blnln6 dcslro nnd
will nocopt Ihd Dositlon of (cbf6tftry 6f'
Stato In Gen. Harrison's Cabinet. Tho'
Information regarding Mr1. DlaltioV
wislioa cornea from sources so direct
and jiositlvo that it amonnts almost lb
tiroof. Tills 1ms created a great deal of
fcolintr and has caused tho nttcranoo of
somo very decided objections from
several quarters, tho moro mention of
whioh would bo mtRt significant. Some
of Mr. IUalncs friends aro denying the
story and insisting that ho prefers the
Senate, while others, less discreet, aro
deolaring that their favorite leader will
get tho cabinet position named, and
that it is p rt ol n" bargain mado at
Chicago or elsowhoro.
Tho repeated abortions of Hon.
John O. New that Qon. Harrison is
hampered by no bargains is quoted in
reply, but they nro rtcoived derisively.
Ono thing is certain, the fooling
stirred up by tho possibility of Mr.
15 bi no's exaltation will causo a desper
ate fight to bo mudo again t hi'iu by
men whom Gen. Ha'rison oannot af
ferd to ignore. Senator Sherman, who
is tho only opponent of Mr. Blaino men
tioned eo far, says ho will not go into
the Cabinet antler pressure, and that
he does not expect to bn imitcd. He
insists that he wishes to remain in tho
Senate, nnd that ho prefers his plaoe
at tho hoad of tho Foreign Affairs
Committeo to that of Secretary of State.
Gen. Harrison has written several
letter to Mr. Sherman since election
day Inviting him to corao to Indiana
polis, but tho Ohio Senator does not
seo his way clearly to nn acceptance of
tho invitation for reasons that aro pcr
tonnl. Ho does not want to go into
the Cabinet and ho docs Dot want to
figure as a Cabinet maker. In tho
coming four montliB there will bo somo
very fino politioal intriguing and a
great many interesting developments.
A Hairless Mare,
A very interesting equine curiosity,
in tho shape of a horse absolutely
without hair, arrived on tho Alameda
from Australia on Satuiday last. It
was oxhibited to a few connoisseurs in
horseflesh yesterday by ,1110 owner,
U. A. Cunningham. The horse, or
rather tho mare, for it belongs to the
latter" gender, is a pronounced pheno
omon. Her skin is black aud as
smooth and lino as that of a' human
being. Sho stands a littlo over fifteen
hands high, and is about seven' years
old. It would be difiioult to find a
handsomer or more shapely animal.
Sho looks well bred and is strongly
developed, In notion tho movoraent
of every tnusclo is plainly discernable
by reason o tho animal's utt r naked
ness. Wero it not for her abnormal
appearaned the mare would make a'
ii ost excellent carriage hbre'd. Ally
thing mord' peculiar than tho appear
ance of tho beast, with her1 smooth'
Bhiny skin, black as ebony, attempting
to whisk from hof bdbk' with' a hair
less, stumpy tail the flos cluslcririij
there it is impossible to cotiOeifd.1
The softness and smoothness' of overy
part of her anatomy, oven' where1 tho'
inane ought to be found, preclndes the
idea that the hair has been gotten rid
of artificially, as by shaving. Mr.
Cunningham purchased tho maro in
Cshuoa, Victoria, from a farmer, who
utilized her as a buggy horse. San
Dr. Hostetter, tho recently deceas
ed Pittsburg millionaire, died without
leaving a will. Tho r ason ho did so
has just beeu found out. A month
ago he did mako a will which contain
ed a bequest giving to the city of
Pittsburg a fine art gallery and mecha
nics' hall. It was to cost one million
dollars and was to havo been the
most elaborate Btruoluro of tho kihd
in the United States. The will provi
ded that tho doctor's eldest eon must
be one of tho Board of Directors gov
erning tho institution, to bo suc
ceeded in turn at death by tho eldest
male hoir, aud so on, from siro to son.
After this had all been settled, the
City Controller, acting under the ad
vice of counsel, took a step most uu
fortanale for Pittsburg. Dr. Hostctt
or was bondsman for Andrew Harta
pee, a oily contractor, and a judge
ment had been rendered against him.
On that judgement execution was is
sued on some of tho doctors possess
ions. He, was clearly liable, and, none
ki ew it beUer than he, "but tins act of
thu Controller highly incenst d him,
and bo went direct to the safe deposit
company, whore he had placed tho
will, and toro tbo documents into
Bhreds. Ho never could be induoed
to mako another.
It is estimated that tho sura of $2,
OJO.OOO was locked up by election
bets io New York city alone dtii'ing
tho recent national contest.

Gentlemen I can cheerfully and truth
fully say tiat S. S. S. Is the greatest blood
panlier on earth. In 1884 I contracted
blood poison. I'hysicians treated me with
no good results. I took a half dozen differ
ent kinds of blood medicines, but, without
receiving any permanent relief 1 I was in
duced to try S. S. S. I began the first
bottle with the gravest doubts of success.
I had been so often deceived. But im.
provement came, and I continued Its use
until perfectly well. I have since married,
and have a healthy family. No trace of the
disease is seen. Swift's Specific did all
this for me, and I am grateful, Yours
truly, J. S. Strader.
