SOUTHERN STANDARD -MCMINNVILLE, TENNESSEE. SATURDAY-SEPT. P, iS9o-
If you have mado up your mind to buy
Hood's Sarsaparilla do not be induced to take
any other. Hood's Sarsaparilla is a peculiar
medicine, possessing, by virtue of its peculiar
combination, proportion, and preparation,
curative power superior to any other article.
A Boston lady who knew what she wanted,
and whose example Is worthy imitation, tells
her experience below:
" In one store where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to Induce me buy
their own instead of Hood's; hetoldmethelr's
would last longer; that I might take It on ten
days' trial; that If I did not like it I need not
pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
nood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken It, was
satisfied with It, and did not want any other.
men I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. Hooked,
and bad for some time, like a person In con
sumption. Hood's Sarsaparilla did ma so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
and my friends frequently speak of it." Mbs.

The demand for dried fruit is still
good, with prices rather better than
last week. Eggs have also slightly
improved. Poultry and butter are
quoted lower and in less demand.
There is still a steady demand for
large frying chickens and hens. We
again urge the importance of drying
all the apples that will not do to ship.
Save and market all your apples.

ments of trade are under full headway
with their fall distributions, and eol
lections are about as good as this time
last year. The outlook is very hope
ful, indeed. Drummers write en
couragingly of the fine crop prospects
and dealers in the country see noth
ing in the way of a big consumptive
demand for all kinds of manufactured
goods the coming season.
The grocery market is firm on al
staple goods. Provisions rule steady
under a lair demand. The egg mar
ket has been excited for two or three
weeks and it has been a hard matter
to give a correct reflex of the situa
tion. The cause is, however, purely
local, and while the war lasts between
dealers the farmers are likely to get
the best of It, as they get more for
their product than the market war
rants. The indications today favor a
lower market. Wheat is firm, corn

The Smut on Corn.
Last week's bulletin of the State
Department of Agriculture contains
the following with regard to the
smut on corn :
In many sections an unusually large
proportion of the ripening corn is af
fected with smut. The commission
er thinks it prudent to direct
the special attention of farmers to
this matter, and to suggest that the
fields be closely examined by those
who wish to turn in cattle to leea
upon the stalks this fall. It is alway
best, when it is intended to turn cat
tie into stalk fields after gathering
the corn, to go through the held:
while the crop is yet green and be
fore the smut hn ripened and re
move the affected ears. Where there
is much of thi smut it is best not to
risk cattle in the fields at all.
Washington, Sept. 1, 18i)0.
Senator Edmunds has exposed the
oven republican foot by his resolu
tion for a Congressional recess, instead
of adjournment, from September 11),
to November 10. I laving by various
methods succeeded in getting a date
set for the disposal of the tariff bill-
he most unjust financial measure of
he age the republicans now propose
that Congress shall meet again after
the Congressional elections in order
that it may proceed to do what it
oes not dare to do before those elec
tions. This action of Mr. Edmunds
was taken because Mr. Harrison re
fused to assume the responsibility of
calling an extra session for the sole
purpose of enacting odious political
aws and making unnecessary appro
First and foremost, if the republi
cans are allowed to carry out their
programme, and they will not, unless
the united legitimate efforts of the
democrats shall fail to prevent it, will

republicans are already banking to
carry the presidential election in '92
their leaders expect to loose the
next House ; but are raising a large
fund to try and save themselves from
defeat by the aid of the electoral
votes of four Southern States which
they calculate can be carried with all
of the election machinery in the
hands of unscrupulous Federal
Next will come the Congressional
and Electoral college apportionment
under the new census, which is to be
manipulated in the interests of the
republican party. If only the ques
tion of right and precedent were
considered this apportionment would
be left for the Fifty-second Congress
to deal with so it has been since the
foundation of our government; but
the republican party ha3 never been
n the habit of letting little things
like right and precedent stand in its
way, and it is too late to except it to
'Incidentally it is proposed that a
large number of bills carrying large
appropriations which the shrewd
leaders of the party temporarily side
tracked early in the present session,
are to be railroaded through and in
order to carry this programme out
successfully a quorum of republican
Senators have, according to Senator
Frye, who ought to be good republi
can authority, agreed to adopt a gag
rule for the Senate similar to the one
with which Speaker Reed has bound
the House hand and feet.
Another nice little scheme in con
nection with this recess business is,
that the pretense is to be made that
measures in which the Farmers' Al
liance and the Labor organizations
are interested, similar to the com
pound lard bill, the amendments to
the eight hour law, and to the alien
contract law already passed by the
House cannot be acted upon unless
those extra three weeks are made use
of. The object in this pretense is to
try and make it appear to the farmers
and workingmen that the democrats
irr opposing the Edmunds resolution
are opposing the consideration of
Mr. Harrison has signed the meat
inspection bill, thus giving himself
greater power in a commercial sense,
than is possessed by any European
sovereign, with the possible excep
tion of the Czar of Russia.
There is a rumor that the River
and harbor bill, which is now in con
ference, is to go over until after the
Elections, in order to keep down the
total amount of appropriations made
by the present Congress.
Wall street pressure has made Sec
retary Windom issue a call for $20,
000,000 more 4i per cent bonds which
will mature in September 1891. He
offers to pay par and accrued interest
to date of maturity.
Senator Morgan has presented to
the Senate a resolution adopted by a
mass-meeting of colored men at Bir
minghara, Alabama, against the pas
sage of the Force bill. This added to
the fact that a meeting of negroes at
Philadelphia adopted a resolution
declaring the passage of therorcebu
to be Impolitic shows that the negroes
are not hankering after the "protee
tion" which the republicans in Con
gress are so anxious to give them
The preliminary farce to depriving
another democrat of his seat Ureck
inridge of Arkansas is going on in
the House today. It is hoped that
his constituents will see to it that he
comes back to the next House wit
such a big majority that even a re
publican Election committee will not
dare to question his right to represent
Representative Cannon, whose vu
garity precipitated the rumpus whic
ended in a slugging match on the
floor of the House last week, has
thereby so endeared himself to
Speaker Reed that he has been asked
to go up to Maine and make some
peeches in his district. It is to be
hoped that he will not use the same
anguage he did in the House.
The August Election.
Returns from all the counties on
the August election have now been
received by the Secretary of State.

Smith, 09,974 ; East, 49. Lea's plu
rality over Smith is 62,320 ; majority
over all, 62,271.
