Irish late proprietor of Park hotel Madison wis. America ahead. A writer from Berlin says a the germans done to believe in the old saying what can to be cured must be they think there is no human evil that May not be remedied and that it in a Friendly act to Tell you of your faults that May be corrected. They bore with a Good Grace the candid expose of the inferiority of the German exhibit at your Centennial exhibition. It was not flattering to the National vanity but it was True and As such must be accepted. Soon after the famous report of the commissioners at the Centennial the Trade societies All held meetings to take his statements into consideration and it was determined to Send no More articles abroad hereafter that could not sustain a Competition with foreign wares. This decision has recently been reinforced by advices from German consuls la South America who speak of the comparative uns lability of German goods in consequence of their inferior manufacture. Attention is called to the care bestowed by americans on their exported fabrics their Superior finish and their greater cheapness and the rapidity with which they Are engrossing a Large part of the foreign markets. A what most struck me a said a German visitor to the Centennial a was the perfect execution of details in All the american exhibits the minute attention paid to every part of a duplex machine the consequent strength and solidity of the whole framework and next the elegance of design and attractiveness however massive the work might in visiting your manufacturing establishments he found Tho same excellence of workmanship. It is not Only Here in Germany but All Over Europe that apprehensions have been excited for the welfare of the local industries in consequence of the keen rivalry to which they Are now subjected in America. The English complain that american steel Ware ands a ready Sale in the streets of Sheffield the germans that your Iron fabrics Are overrunning the Empire the French that american Silks in color and Quality and Price Are beginning not Only to equal but to surpass the products of Lyons the Swiss that your watches Are driving that peculiarly National manufacture out of All the markets of the world while american watchmakers making a better article at a less Price Supply their own Market. The italians find pretty much All the manufactures they Send to the United states superseded in a certain degree by the Home production and their Trade sinking to a Mere Exchange of raw material. And then All wine growing Europe is in consternation at the rapid Progress of Ulni culture in the United states the variety of the wines of the Middle states and of California their Fine natural Boquet. And the skill and ingenuity with which favorite qualities of Europe Are imitated or rather produced Champagne Hock Burgundy and All the Jolly tribe. The americans Are among the most profitable customers of French and German wines. Their palates have been considered to be of the nicest because of the readiness with which they have so Long accepted the Dregs compounded into Claret at Bordeaux the falsified wines fabricated at order at Bette and the sugar of Lead poisoned stuff called Champagne that is made expressly Here for their use. Since wine making has been brought to such a state of perfection however in the United states it is observed you begin to prefer your own wines and that adulterated foreign trash is falling off in demand and Sale. A while we have been making War and cutting each others throats in the old world a said Baron b of the Reich Stag to me yesterday a your people have been improving All their manufacturing processes applying their inventive Genius to every department of human skill and exertion until you have become the first manufacturing nation of the world As you Are certainly destined to be the richest and most Barnum a hotel St. Louis mo., is the Best hotel for the Price in the Bridge City $2.00 and $2.50 per Day.

A wonderful printing press. Hoes perfecting and folding press seems to reach the very Ultima Thule of newspaper production. The recent in prove Enthof the Hoe company resulted in securing a rate of thirty thousand copies an hour but a still More important addition has been made to the machine consisting of the combining with it of a Small folding mechanism of novel design which puts out of use a room full of machinery and performs the work of twelve men. The entire process is automatic. A Roll of paper is Hung on a horizontal Axis Over the press the end of the big ribbon is pushed into the machine a lever starts the revolutions and As the Roll unwinds Complete copies neatly folded and ready for the mail Issue in two streams at the end of the machine no hand touching them from the time the Roll is swung into its place till the folded papers Are gathered up. The nominal Speed of the new perfecting and folding press is about 3,000 an hour greater than that of the earlier Poi footing press. But since the work of the new one includes folding its Speed exceeds even tills High figure by just the time required to fold an entire edition. It is beyond All sort of comparison therefore the fastest printing machine Ever devised. It can deliver 18,000 papers an hour folded for mailing.
