lie observing mind, which
less than two years ago looked
wistfully for a remedy for the
stagnation of business that poli

was two or three men for every
place of service to be rilled, the
present situation is bewildering.
The very opposite of the situa

Ti is much less a vital question
a to whoso credit the improved
conditions belong than as to
wlujiher they are likely to con
tinue. The Philadelphia Times speaks
learnedly and comfortingly as
' 'The most conclusive evidence
thai ha yet been given of the
general and enduring prosperity
of the country at this time is
iO'.md in the remarkable an
no uncement recently made that

; positively contracted for to
be delivered during the year
iOOU at o3 per ton. When teel
rails were less than 20 per ton
the railways of the country could
not afford to buy them, as busi
ness and industry were generally
depressed and transportion lines
were thus . deprived, of a large
measure of their profits; but now
when steel rails command 33
per tor, the largest order in the
history of the country has just
been made by our railways. The
fact that the contract covers the
period of the whole of next year
proves conclusively that our best
advised business'1 and financial
men are entirely assured of con
tinued improvement in all indus
4 'By great combination of capi
tal and economy in product this
country can now produce iron or
steel and undersell other coun
tries in the markets of the world.
The great Siberian Railway, of
Russia, is laid largely by steel
rails from Pennsylvania, on ties
taken from Oregon, and its trains
are drawn by American loeomo
motivos. Only recently a Phila
delphia iron firm astonished and
appdll-xl the English iron men
by underbidding them foriym
portant bridge in Egypt where
inilitSr.: necessity cmpeled its
Speediest construction: and our
iron pipes arfe now, furnished to
almost every county m the world.
After all the great market for
our iron and steel products is at
home, and when our railways
can contract for 1,500,000 tons of
steel rails, giving more than a
year for their delivery, and in
volving an . expenditure of some
$50,000,000, the lesson ; is con
clusive that we are today on a
safer and more enduring basis of
general industrial, commercial
and trade prosperity tfrau at any
time in the history of the past.
When industry and trade are
prosperous our railways keep up
their lines and equipment; steel
buildings are erected in every
part of the country, bridges are
constructed wherever needed,
and every branch of business
progress gives bountiful markets
for our iron and steel; but when
business depression comes, rail
ways halt the improvement of
their lines and machincy, build
ings are limited to extreme
necessities, the erection of brid
ges is halted, because iron is the
one product that can be delayed
for more favorable financial con
ditions. Those who are theorizing on
the present prosperity of the
country as ephemeral and likely
to perish in panic any day. should
look the facts in the face, and
understand that at no time in all
our eventful history has there
been such multiplied evidence of
the most substantial and eu'lur
ina prosperity for the whole
people of the United S tides.

OUR SCHOOLS ALL KHiHT.
The Index rejoices at the
prosperous condition of 4 he Sal
isbury graded schools. This is
pleasant to note as Super! :P en
dent Coon is a new he; ; to tiie
institution. We rejoice, too. in
a s'lent way that our graded
and the Concord high; y-hools
have a settled fixedness eL pro
gress like well adjusted machin
ery that makes little noise in the
running but is a power for the
accomplishment ' of the ends
The Concord Institute, too, in
its first session, we believe, en
joys about all the patronage and.
the prosperity that could bo ex
pected. No better index to true
progress than well filled and
satisfactory schools is to be
chronicled and they who can
run them successful should take
rank with the heroes of the day.
Well we have heard of arti
ficial eggs, though, we never saw
one, but now somebody has beat
that and has gone to making ar
tificial oysters, They get the
genuine shell, second hand, and
paste the "oyster in. With the
proper seasoning they are said
to rival the genuine oyster.
Editor Furman of the Morning
Post, from whom we get the
idea, says that these imitations
are to supply the lack of the
genuine at the World's Pair at
Paris next year. They have al
ready prospectively soured on

Now the explanation comes
that theiirii ish disaster in South
Africa is due to the fact that the
Boers rolled some rocks down the
hill and scared the mules and
they tampered off with the
ammunition wagons. The Eng
lish traditional Drhlc would not
let the soldiers do a little whole
some skedaddling and they shot
out aU ineir ammunition and
surrendered. Strange to -say,
too, that it was a reconnolsance
in force only three miles from
Ladysmith and the fighting was
long enough for reinforcements
tj have gone to the rescue. The
presence of an overwhelming
force of Boers against which
Gen. White did not dare to bring
a general engagement seems to
be the most plausible explana
tion to the explanation.
