SOUTHERN STANDARD -MCMINNVILLE.' TENNESSEE-.-. A I UKDAY. OCT. :4,;ia9o
Makes the llyes of many 'people miserable,
and oftqn. leads tq self-dostructloo.. Distress
after 'eating, sour stomach, elck headache, -heartburn,
loss of appetite, a faint, " all gone "
feeling, bad taste, coated tongue, and lrregu
' larity of the bowels, are
UlStreSS gome of the more common
After symptoms. Dyspepsia docs
baling requires careful, persistent
attention, and a remedy like Hood's Sarsa
parllla,' which acts gently, yet surely and
efficiently. It tones the stomach and other
organs, regulates the digestion, creates a
good appetite, and by thus Sick
overcoming the local symp- ' .
toms removes Uie iympa-HGuaCn
tlietle effects of the disease, banishes the
headache, and refreshes the tired mind.
I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I
had but little appetite, and what I did eat
tJAora dlstreMed me, or did me
Jarx little good. In an. hour
bum after eating I would expe
rience a lalntness, er tired, all-gone feeling,
as though I had not eaten anything. My trou
ble, I think, was aggravated by my business,
which Is that of a painter, and from being
more or less shut up in a Sour
room with fresh paint. Last e. "
spring I took Hood-s Sarsar StOmaCH
rflla-took three bottles. It did me an
immense amount ot good. It gave me aa
appetite, and my food relished and satisfied
the craving I had previously experienced."

MCMINNVILLE PRODUCE MARKET.
Corrected weekly by Head & Ritchey.
Officb Southern Standabd,
McMinnville. October 3 1800.
The dried fruit trade has not been
altogether satisfactory for the last ten
days, more on account of the condN
tion of dried fruit. Dryers could not
cet it thoroughly dry on account of
continued wet weather, and still in
its unsalable condition they seem
anxious to put it on the market. The
result has been that very much of the
fruit sent to dealers has been rejected.
We again repeat what we have here
toforesaid, "Fruit must be reason
ably dry to sell." The dullness and
lower prices have been caused by the
condition of dried apples rather than
the quautity oiiered. While price
are fully 3 lower than at one time,
there is no trouble to sell all the good
nice dried fruit we can get at reason
ably high prices. But dried apples
must be dry to ship. Eggs have ruled
very dull in all the markets on ac
count of the production being larger
than usual at this season. There will
probably not be much change in price
of eggs until later when the weather
is more favorable. Green apples, if
nice and well handled, sell readily in
this market at 50c. Some people, to
save time, shake their apples off the
trees. In falling they get bruised
and dirty ,and when hauled to market
are rejected or sold at a sacrifice. Our
apples are very perishable, and to
ship must be sound and free from
bruises. As stated before, pick them
by hand carefully, handling and as'
sorting well, and you will realize
more satisfactory prices.

' J. S. B. and the Alliance. ' J
Irving College, Sepri 29, 1890.
Editor Standard: The Mor
mon bible says, "He that hath a horn
and tooteth it not, the same shall not
be tooted." I suppose "J. S. B." in '
last week'a Standard so believed,
hence he tooted, and ray stars, what a
blast of wind ! Why, even now, I
can hear the echo repeating again and
again, Con-ven-tlon Meth-o-d-s. "If
McDowell will not defend them on
the stump, who of the Alliance can
stomach them ?" O, most every
member of the Union in Warren
county can stomach them, for they
are the same methods (and methods Is
a good name for them, too) that the
Democrats, and Republicans too, have
used In Warren county now for lo,
these many years. If to use methods
in the manipulating of a convention
be a sin, woe unto you, ye Demo
crats ! woe unto you, ye Republicans!
and woe unto you, ye Hayseeders, for
you stole the methods perfected by
the Lawyers and Scribes and used
them for your own self-aggrandizement
to the prejudice of those same
Lawyers and Scribes, therefore shall
you receive the greater condemnation.
No, J. S. B. does not think it a sin
to use Convention Methods. He has
grown gray In using them. But he
does think it unpardonably sinful for
the other fellows to use them. "O,
that we could see ourselves as other
people see us!"
And J. S. B. threatens to "kick out
of the traces" if the Alliance don't
quit doing that way. Why, J. S. B.,
you are a terror I Aren't you afraid
you will so tertorize the Alliance that
its members, Democrats though they
be, will never dare again to enter a
My dear sir, let me remind you
that when Democrats enter a conven
tion or a primary, though they fail to
get what they want, they never "kick
out of the traces," but mugwumps do ;
and the sooner mugwumps begin to
kick, and the sooner they get out of
the party, the better it will be for
that same grand old party.
Now my dear Standard, a few
words for your benefit, and for your
neighDor, the .bra's benent, ana l am
done "tooting" for the present. Im
mediately after the Gubernatorial
Convention you and the Era, in the
solitude of your offices, partook of
that crow, you know. Well, we ad
mired your resolution, for crow, we
know, is not palatable. But from
time to time certain eructations of
yours (as the college boy would say)
appeared to be almost entirely undi
gested crow. JJoes it suck in your
throats ? Will it not "down at your
bidding ?" Let me suggest that you
get a few doses of anti-mugwump pow
dcrs (the Nashville American will
supply you) and take for your stom
ach, your gall, and your spleen's sake;
they will do you good, and you will
never again feel like offering an
apology for a half-hearted support of
the nominee of the largest and most
re convention that ever
laboring class'. It Is a fact that com
bines, rings, monopolies, trusts, etc.,
have been and are still the ruin of
our country, driving a free people
to subvert and finally overthrow the
great principles purchased to the
fathers of American liberty. We de
mand nothing but equal rights and
special favors to none. It Is a fact, 80
ears ago 70 per cent, of the nation's
wealth was in the hands of the great
producery,80 per cent. In the hands of
the non-producer. How now? It Is an
acknowledged fact that 81 per cent, of
the wealth is in the hands of the non-
producers, while the .producers . have
19 per cent. It is a fact the laboring
class have trusted in the fair, but yet
so false, promises of their representa
tives, for redemption, until they have
found it necessary to seek redress by
some better means. Under the ad
ministration of the Democratic party
t did not become necessary for a tax-
ridden people to form Alliances and
Unions; but when we consider that
almost every business when It be
came unprofitable, the rottenness of
the present system of government
only needed a petition lor special legi
slation, and that business would be
rebuilt, though It be detrimental to
all others. Yet the farmers and la
borers have been chained to the rock
and those vultures when called upon
for help, have only drawn the chains,
binding and sinking us lower, until
the vital elements are nearly exhaust
ed. We are not allied to any one
who believes in the present status of
the government, nor do we exclude
from our council any good citizens of
the mass who are suffering as we and
n lull sympathy therewith, but wel
come to our ranks all such sympa
thizers and sufferers who seek for a
remedy for laboring humanity.
We are not a new party as J. S. B.
would make appear. The old Jeffer-
sonian Democracy, time tried, tested
and true, is what we want, is what
we seek. Should this standard again
be raised, as we trust it shall soon ap
pear, and go into full power, J. S. B
need have no fears that this suffering
class will fail to stand firm and true.
All we want, all we seek, is unity
and justice. We do not, nor will not
ally ourselves with any one who will
not aid us to a better status. If the
Democratic party had always stood
united as we trust it shall be, the
death-knell would have long since
been sounded the curses of the pres
ent government which we now en
dure. In conclusion will say, fear
not friend B., we are still coming to
gether, to make a willing fight, f
strong and united fight for the right
and just, until the present accursed
state of governmental rulings shall be
as dead as the falsely conceived ideas
of our friend B.

NASHYILLE MARKET REPORT.
Corrected from the Nashville American
every Thursday evening.
Wednesday, Oct. 1. The general
market presented more than usual ac
tivity today. The principal business
thoroughfares were alive with trans
fers and scores of merchants from the
country were in the markets giving
personal attention to the selection of
good3, though all orders were small
and confined to absolute necessities.
The grocery market was active and
firm all through the line of staples.
Provisions are quiet. Country pro
duce values remain about the same as
on yesterday. The wheat martet is
dull at quotations. There is a decided
improvement in the southern de
mand for corn,though no changes are
noted in prices, jlran is still at prices.

burdens have fallen, and who are

Lead Poison Cured.
I am a painter by trade. Three
years ago I had a bad case of Lead
Poison, caused by using rubber paint
I wa3 cured in a short time by S. S.
S. The medicine drove the poison
out through the pores of the skin.
When I first commenced taking S,
S. S., my system was so saturated
with poison that my underclothes
were colored by the paint being work
ed out by the medicine through the
pores of my skin. I was cured en
tirely by S. S. S. I took nothing else
and have had no return since.

DOTY & FITTS.
POINTS OF EXCELLENCE IN THE
OUR TIRES are the heaviest of any wagon in the mc.rket.
There is more iron and better iron work on the "Tennessee" than on any other
wagon offered to the trade.
Our Wood-work is thoroughly saturated m boiling linseed oil.
We do not use any cheap or mineral paints ; our work is all nninted with the best
brands of paint, irrouud by ourselves in pure linseed oil, and finished with the best brands
of English varnish.
Our spokes arc driven by machinery in hot glue.
Our tire-furnace gives uniform heat, and our tire cooler uniform shrinkage, which se
cures uniform dish in all wheels.
Our timber is all AIR DRY and thoroughly seasoned. The axles are made of best
hickory; the tongues, bolsters, hounds, and spokes of best white oak ; the hubs of New
York black birch, "the best in the world," and our beds of 'clear Tennessee yellow poplar.
Our tongues and front hounds are so constructed that but little weight rests upon the
necks of the team.
The hubs are steamed when driving the spokes, which shrinks them to the spokes,
making the spokes as firm as if they grew there.
The bolsters are plated their entire length, and the king bolts are countersunk, which
prevents them from wearing the bottom of the beds.
Our BOX STRAPS are turned over the sides so as to give additional strength to the
beds, all of which are plated with beveled iron.
We use KOUND EDGE TIRE on our wheels for the protection of felloes and paint;
also hoavv WROUGHT IRON sand bands on wheels.
We buy them by the car load and sell them for fcsninll Profit.
