MCMINNVILLE PRODUCE MARKET.
Corrected weekly by Mead tSt Ritchey.
Office Southern Standard,
McMinnville, December 12 1890.
Since last report there has been
decline in both dried apples and peel
ings and cores. The supply seems
greater than the large fruit dealers
anticipated, and they being heavily
loaded with dried apples at high
prices, they seem to have combined
to buy the remainder at a lower price
and they are likely to be successful
The truth is, there are two things to
influence the markets. First, prices
got up too high, and secondly the
character of most of the apples going
into market is not good. Too much
wet, green fruit. Hence we may ex
pect lower prices for a while at least
It may react somewhat later. There
is considerable dried fruit yet to go to
market. We suggest that it all be
made dry, and not hurry it off unti
dry, and better prices may be realized
than now indicated. Eggs, on ac
count of largely increased produc'
tions are weak and fully a cent low
er. We advise the country mer
chants not to get excited and pay too
much for any thing. Sell your eggs
and dried fruit and most other arti
clcs as fast as you get them, it is
safest and you have your money con
stantly turning over, l'ronts may
sometimes be smaller, but aggregate
profits of your business will likely be
larger in the end. Other produce re
mains about same as last week.

Washington, Dec. 8, 1890.
The republican Senators received an
unexpected shock when the news of
the action of the convention of the
National Farmers Alliance in protes
ting against the passage of the Force
bill reached them ; it staggered them
for a time, and when they recovered
their wits they began to abuse the
Alliance. But it is believed that this
protest will have great weight with
the northwestern republican Sen
tors, and together with the move-
meat of a number of republican- Sen
ators, who are said to have deter
mined not to vote for that bill unless
Speaker Reed will promise to allow
a bill for the free coinage of silver to
be voted on in the House, which he
has so far refused to do, it will cer
tainly jepoardizo that infamous
The feature of the debate last week
in the Senate was Senator Gray's ar
gument against the constitutionality
of the most obnoxious clauses of the
Force bill, and much to the surprise
of the democrats, and also, I suspect,
of the republicans, Senator Teller
agreed with all that he said relating
to the clause providing for domicil'
iary visits. The republicans have
caucussed on the proposed change of
the Senate rules for the purpose of
forcing the bill through a la lteed,
but they failed to agree. It is now
believed that if the bill passes at all,
which is far from certain, it will be
The democrats in both House and
Senate, satisfied of the justness of the
demands of the Farmers Alliance for
an increase in the amount of money
in circulation, stand ready to vote
for the free and unlimited coinage of
silver whenever they can get an op
portunity, and so many republicans
are ready to vote with them that the
passage of one of the many bills that
have been introduced would be a
certanity were it not for the opposi
tion of Speaker Heed, who has so far
been able to absolutely control the
legislation that goes before the
House. It is stated that Mr. Hani
son would veto it if passed, but that
doesn't worry anybody. If he should
veto it, good bye to him politically.

1 am now 28 years old, and from
the time I was seven years of age un
til 1885, 1 suffered with a severe case
of Scrofula. During this time I took
every known remedy, but to no pur
pose. My father took me to North
Carolina, where I was put under the
treatment of an eminent physician.
The medicines given me had only a
temporary effect, for shortly after my
return the Scrufula broke out in a
more maligant form, and I was worse
off than ever before. In 1885 I dis
continued taking all other medicines
and commenced taking Swift's Spe
cific (S. S. S,) I took a number of
bottles and it cured me. I have been
free from Scrofula from that time un
til now. T. A. Sizkmork,

For 25 years 1 suffered from Boils,
Erysipelas,and other blood affections;
taking during that time great quanti
ties of different medicines without
deriving any perceptible relief.
Friends induced me to try Swift's
hpecinc (S. o. o.) it improved me
from tho start, and after taking sev
eral bottles restored my health as far
as I could hope for at my age, which
is now 75 years.
