eyes, ears, or nose, olten causing blindness or
deafness; which Is the origin ot pimples, can

fastening upon the lungs, causes consumption

McMINHTILLE PRODUCE MARKET.
Corrected weekly by Head & Ritchey.
Office Southern Standard,
McMinnyille, September 12 1890.
Since last week there has been a
droi) in dried fruit. It has declined.
In the language of a telegram receiv
ed from St. Louis yesterday, "The
market flat." We have felt and all
along expressed fears of a decline at
any time on account of rapidly in
creasing receipts, which have exceed
ed all expectations. We have ex
pected it and have bought and Bold
so as not to be caught in the decline
when it did come. While we want
to see the producers realize a good
price for all their products, we would
say to them, not to expect too much.
Drv all the fruit 'you can dry well.
See that it is dry and then get all you
can for it. One great trouble i3 many
apples are put on the market before
they are dry, and when bulked up,
sour. They must be dry, and those
who offer damp, green or soured ap
pies, will find them rejected. To sell
they must be nice and dry. See they
are what they are sold for "dry ap
pies." Eggs are lower and in hardly
so good demand. The warm weath
er and slight increase in production
have probably made the difference.
Other produce has undergone very
little change in values. Dried apples
are probably not worth more than 5c.
They may even go lower before this
Standard reaches many of its read
ers, or they may get better. JSo one
situated as we are knows what a day
may bring forth.

Washington, D. C. Sept. 8, 1890.
Democratic magnamity was strongly
contracted with republican selfishness
when the Southern Senators voted
with the northwestern Senators to
place binding twine on the free list.
The great grain producing states are
the largest users of binding twine.
But when the Southern Senators
asked for an amendment to the tariff
bill placing cotton bagging, which is
used by the cotton producing states
on the free list, the republicans voted
solidly against it. That is just the
sort of sectional legislation that has
created a "solid South" and as long
as the one continues the other is like
ly to remain. It is a bad rule that
does not work both ways.
The anti-Reed republicans, and
the are lots of 'em, are "kicking"
vigorously, because they say that the
Republican Congressional Campaign
committee la being used to boom' the
Speaker for the Tresidency. There
Is no longer any doubt of Reed's hav
ing shied his castor into the Presiden
tial ring, aud the weaker candidates,

muuuiug iur. iiarriauu, urw ucwmi
ing panic-stricken at the prospect.
They fear the power of the big man
from Maine whose shadow is begin
nlngto obscure all of them. The
democrats would ask nothing better
than Reed's nomination; they believe
that an overwhelming majority of
the people of this country are opposed
to the un-American methods by
which he has tyrannized over the
House of Representatives.
This week will see the outrageous,
one-sided tariff bill passed by the
Senate. A number of the republican
Senators have shown a temporary
spirit of independence in voting
against their constituents ; but their
courage ended there, and through
fear of the party lash they will stul
tify themselves by voting for it as a
whole. The reciprocity amendment
is a delusion and a snare, and is only
reciprocity in name, as experience
will demonstrate ; or else the high
protectionists in the House would not
(as they have done) have promised
that the House would accept it. The
bill is nothing more nor lesss than an
official payment by the consumers of
the United States of the money cou
tributed by protected manufacturers
during the last Presidential cam
paign to the republican corruption
fund. Fortunately the voters
of the country will have an
opportunity in November of expres
sing their opinion of such methods.
Representative Breckinridge, of
Arkansas, has been illegally aud un
justly deprived of his seat in the
House, but as he expressed it in the
closing word of his speech "I take
an appeal to the people, regardless of
party,in the district I have the honor
to represent, on the broad ground of
common honesty, and in November
they will reverse your conclusion and
rebuke methods by which you reach
ed that conclusion."
The scandal piles up on Commis
sioner Raura, but he does not resign,
nor do his superiors in office give any
signs of asking for his resignation, al
though common decency should have
caused them to do so as soon as he
unblushingly acknowledged having
borrowed $12,000 on notes endorsed
by pension Attorney Lemon. But
there is worse to come. He has been
engaged in some business transactions
"Where Brandy is Made."
Editor Standard : Impelled by
a sense of duty, I take this method of
alleviating, to some extent at least,
the bad feeling unintentionally
aroused at Irving College by the Mc-
Minnville correspondent of the Nash
ville Banner; to correct some "erro
neous statements," if erroneous they
were, aud also, with meagre informa
tion, endeavor to place a lighter hue
upon the devil which has been too
I must admit, after a careful peru
sal of Mr. Etter's article, that I have
acted very Imprudently and altogeth
er too previous in publishing informa
tion gained from another, though he
be a citizen of that community. I
was informed by the aforesaid citizen
that "the liquor traffic in that section
had been the ruin of Irving College."
Just how true this statement is I am
not prepared to say, but it was writ
ten with the supposition that a citizen
of a community should know where
of he asserteth, therefore, unfortu
nately I took no pains to investigate
the matter. If I have been misin
formed, I have misinformed.
I trust this will suffice to convince
the people of that section that it was
not my desire or intention to put
them down as "corrupt or Immoral,"
or to portray them to the outside
world as "backwoods cut-throats,"
and trust that ever as now sobriety,
honesty and intelligence may reign
supreme, and that Irving College
may continue for time immemorial
in its present career of usefulness,
teaching young minds lessons of truth
and right, who may never walk fortli
into the world as unblest spirits wan
dering over a desert, digging deep
wells for water to quench their thirst
and bringing up the dry, hot sands ;
but as they stand in after years with
bright recollections of happy days
spent at Irving College, may they
realize more and more, that but for
the good lessons taught there, how
awful the degradation to which they
might have been brought in the land
"where brandy is made."

The speech of Representative Ken
nedy, an Ohio republican, charging
Senator Quay with being a felon and
a modern Judas Iscariot, may have
been strictly true many people be
lieve that it was but the floor of
House was no',place for it to be made,
and it would have been well had the
House adopted the resolution expel
ling Kennedy, which Representative
Boatner of Louisiana prepared, but
was dissuaded by his democratic col
leagues from introducing. The speech
will, it is said, be "revised" before it
is printed in the Congressional Rec
ord, but that is no palliation of the
offense against good manners commit
ted by Kennedy. An expulsion or
two would have a wonderful effect
upon the manners of the House.
The conference report on the River
and Harbor bill has been adopted by
the House but it is hardly probable

Eczema From Childhood.
When an infant my body broke out
all over with an eruption or rash,
which became more aggravated as I
grew older. From early childhood
until I was grown my family spent a
fortune trying to cure me of the dis
ease, livery noted physician m our
section was tried or consulted. When
I came of age I visited Hot Springs,
Ark., and was treated there by . the
best medical men, but was not bene
fitted. After that, under the advice
of a noted specialist, I tried the cele
brated Clifton Springs, New York,
without any good results. When all
things had failed I determined to try
S. S. S., and in four months was en
tirely cured. The terrible Eczema
was all gone, not a sign left ; my gen
eral health was built up, and I have
never had any return of the disease.
I have since recommended S. S. S. to
a number of friends for skin diseases,
eruptions, etc., auu nave never
known of a failure to cure.
