OUR TIN PLATE MAKERS.
Xo sot of men have ever been
more slandered and harassed than
the Americans who have gone to
work to develop nn American tin-
ptaie industry. 1 Heir motives arc
constantly maligned nnd their ac
tions are continually misrepresent
ed. It is rather remarkable, .under
the circumstances, that any pro
gress should be made in the estab
lishment of a business which has
been so stamped with odium by
those who do not favor its growth
on American soil. Hut in spite of
ancers, jeer9 and wiinui misrepre
sentation the investment of capital
in tin-plate machinery seems to go
on steadily. The quantity of tin
piaie nere last year was small as
compared with the volume of bust
ness done, but a good start was
made whichwill be actively followed
up this year.
The work now under construction
will be making themselves folt in
tho trade from month to mouth and
before summer is on us it will be
soon that the industry is at last
fairly established. Tho experiments
now being conducted by some of
the domestic manufacturers with a
view to tho avoidance of much of
the hand labor hitherto employed
tire at last being crowned with suc
cess, and it looks as though ISlCi
would bo in more t nan one respect
a notable year for the American
tin-plate trade. The- Iron Ago.

Tho Y. L. R. K. A. have arranged
with F. H. Thompson, of the Excel
sior Library Hureau of Chicago, to
add at least XJ volumes to their
library each year for a term of five
years, chanring $0.25 for the whole
term, $5 for four years, $3.75 for
three years, $2.50 for two years, $1.50
for one rear memoersnm.
We bespeak a cordial reception
for Mr. Thomas or his representa
tive from every progressive or
public spirited citizen and any
person who is interested in cduca
tion and mental culture. To start
with our library will contain over
500 volumes of standard literature,
comprising works of history,
biocrraphy, science, religion educa
tion. poetry, fiction, references and
miscellaneous. We will endeavor
to satisfy vour literary wants and
trust as in the past you will favor
