SOUTHERN STANDARD-MCMINN VILLE. TENNESSEE-.v i'URDAY, NOV- 8, 1890
Is the most ancient and most general of all
diseases. Scarcely a family Is entirely free
from It, while thousands everywhere are its
ufferlnyslaves. Hood's Barsaparilla has
had remarkable success In curing every form
of scrofula. The most severe and painful
running sores, swellings In the teck or
goitre, humor in the eyes, causing partial
or total blindness, yield to the powerful
effects of this medicine. It thoroughly re
moves every Impurity from the blood.
"My little daughter's life was saved, as
we believe, by Hood's Sarsaparllla. Before
he was six months old she had 7 running
scrofula sores. One physician advised the
amputation ot one of her fingers, to which
we refused assent When we began giving
her Hood's Barsaparilla, a marked Improve
ment was noticed and by a continued use of It
her recovery was complete. And she Is now,
being seven years old, strong and healthy."

JMcMinnville, November C 1890.
For several weeks have had a live'
iy, active traae in aneu ana green
apples, which still continues with
prospects of less activity in dried
fruit in the future. Prices have been
puite satisfactory to the producers,
and large sums of money have been
expended for green and dried fruit.
Prices of dried apples have advanced
so high that the margin between this
and other markets is rather small for
safety to the shipper, especially so
when the fruit ollered is not nice and
dry. Nothing but nice, bright, dry
Iruit can be safely handled at present
ruling prices, 'ihe Iruit must be
good and dry to abtain the highest
price. Entirely too much wet and
partially dried is being ollered. Un
less dryers are more particular as a
general thing, shippers will be com
pelled to reduce present prices. Would
not be surprised at lower prices with
in the next week or ten days. (Jreen
apples are now bfing moved freely.
Several hundred barrels are shipped
daily from the various stations on
the McMinnville branch road. The
apple crop alone, green and dried,
this year will put in circulation in
this and some adjoining counties
more money than all other products
of the country combined. Eggs have
been quite dull until within the last
few days. We note an improvement
both in price and demand. Other
products have made but little change

given them in organizing the world's

8th, That we denounce the expor

all other uncivilized countries as an
act of barbarism producing a greater
degree of degradation than already
exists among them,and most emphat
ically protest against a christian
government that permits its contin
uance, and earnestly appeal to Con
gress to prohibit it.
!)th, That believing that the church
should set an example of purity before
asking the world to follow, we earn
estly petition churches of every de
nomination, and religious bodies of
every name, to condemn the use of
alcoholic wine at the Lord's table.
10th, That wo, believing in the re
storation to health of our beloved and
honored President, Mrs. Lide Meri
wether, we have a direct answer to
the many prayers that have been of
fered in her behalf, and feel that we
have been individually blest by this
merciful dispensation, and have an
abundant cause for thanksgiving,
realizing that it is to her gifted lead
ership the advancement ol our cause
is pre-eminently due. We ascribe
praise and honor to the Father of
mercies that she is still spared to us,
and can yet a while longer guide and
direct us by her wise councils and
llth, That as in Christ there is
neither male or female, bond or free,
so should it be in church and state,
and wherever the interests of the
home are concerned, the mother
should be united With the father on
equal terms, in the battle against
evil for God, Home and Humanity
12th, That we petition our legisla
ture to establish an industrial schoo
for girls.believing that lack of knowl
edge and training sufficient to enable
them to gain a livelihood is the most
prolific cause of the downfall of many
and that here more than anywhere
else an ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure.
13th, That as christian women we
believe one of our first duties is to
work for the prevention and cure of
that nefarious traffic in souls and
bodies which yearly destroys thous
ands of our sex. That we petition
the counties in which there are large
towns to establish reformatory woik
houses for girls and women, and pe
tition our cities to appoint police ma
trons. 14th, That we petition the legisla
ture to raise the age of consent to that
required by law for a girl to come
into possession of her property, be
lieving that her virtue is her greatest
poasession and should be no less pro
tected than her money. Also that
a penalty be attached to the crime of
abduction and seduction but little in
ferior to that of rape.
15th, That we commend the action
of the Knoxville City Council in
creating the office of police matron
for their city, and congratulate them
on being the first corporation in Ten
nessee to take this forward step. We
beg that they will pay no heed to the
request made to the council that
they abolish the office.
lGth, That this convention do most
heartily endorse D. C. Kelley, the
prohibition candidate for governor,
and pledge him all the aid our in
fluence and prayers can render.
17th, To our dear sister, Mrs. Jen
nie C. Gaffin, President of the Mc
Minnville W. C. T. ' U. we extend
our affectionate sympathy in her
troubles and sincerly regret her ab
sence from our numbers and earnest
ly pray that Christ's grace may sus
tain in all the experiences through
which she may be required to pass,
In addition to these two oilier reso
lutions, were adopted one censuring
'certain" newspapers of the state in
very strong terms,and another extoll
ing certain other papers, particularly
the Banner. These two resolutions
the author pocketed, and could not,
or would not, furnish the reporter a
copy. The first of the two, as origin
ally offered, included only the Amer
ican.but some of the ladies thought it
too strong and pointed, and so it was
amended to read "certain newspa
pers," supposing, as one of the speak
ers expressed it, that "everybody
would know it meant the American."
18th, Hesolved, That our grateful
and sincere thanks are tendered to the
lospital citizens of McMinnville for
their generous welcome of the W. C
T. U. delegates to their lovely homes
the M. E. Church South and its
pastor, Rev. J. T. Curry, for their
cordial reception and kindly greeting
and to other ministers for their ready
assistance in conducting the devotion

decorated the church in which the

There is more iron and better iron work on the "Tennessee" than on any other
wagon ollered to the trade.
Our Wood work is thoroughly saturated in boiling linseed oil.
We do not use any cheap or mineral paints ; our work is all painted with the best
brands of paint, ground by ourselves in pure linseed oil, and finished with (lie best brands
of English varnish.
Our spokes are driven by machinery in hot glue.
Our tire-furnace gives uniform hent. and our tire cooler uniform shrinkage, which se
cures uniform dish in nil wheels.
Our timber is all AIR DRY and thoroughly seasoned. The axles are made of best
hickory: the tongues, holsters, hounds, and spokes of best white oak : the hubs of New
York black birch, "the best in the world," and our beds of clenr 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 snokes.
making the spokes as firm as if they grew there.
1 lie bolsters are plated their entire length, and the king bolts are countersunk, which
prevents them from wearing the bottom of the beds.

beds, all of which are plated with beveled iron.
We use ROl'XD EDGE TIRE on our wheels for the protection of felloes mid paint ;

A Spanish steamship collided with
a sailing vessel six miles oft" the New
Jersey coast on Thursday night of
last week. All of the passengers of
the steamer were lost. Some of the
crew of both vessels escaped. It was
a clear moonlight night and the sea
was perfectly smooth, consequently
the disaster cannot be accounted for.
