" Dried fruit is uncharged," with a
probability of nol much, change Room
Apples, sun dried, to command the
highest prico should bo cut into 4
'pieces, strictly quartered,' and take
out the core. Such apples, if dried
bright and nice would sell .as Ohio or-
, other Western stock for export. The
German trade prefer heavy quarters.
So we advise all fruit driers to '.cut
their apples into 4 equal parts and
when dried kpep sepcrate from all
other kinds. Merchants would. do
well to keep such to . themselves.
' Bueh would now sell for a better
price than the ordinary cut apples.

OUR AUGUST LIST, -
We give below subscription pay-
'ments to the Standard during he
month of August, " 1801. ' New sub
scribers marked thus . There are
23 new subset ibers in the list, and
21 renewals. The Standard whs
boycotted by the Alliance about a
year and a half ago, and wo believe
was tlio first paper in the State to re
ceive that distinction. It still lives,
is still fighting the Alliance as a po
litical organization, and expects to
print its obituary before many more
moons. The Standard opposed the
Alliance last year, opposes it this
year, and will oppose it next, because
it was, is, and will continue to be
nothing more not less than a secret,
oath-bound political organization un
til completely revolutionized and re
organized; It must pass to dissolution
before this, can be accomplished, and
the seeds of decay are now striking
deep into its vitals. The Standard
is for straight Democracy, and ; for a
bold, opp fight next year by straight
Democrats only, and along strictly
Democratic lines. , Our subscription

Irving College, Sept. 3. Fodder
gathering is now under headway in
this community. It seems to me
that farmers have been wonderfully
blessed this year with a good season
for the cultivation of their crops, an
abundance of rain to mature them,
and a favorable time to harvest
them. I can see no reason why they
should not be prosperous.
1 see the more thritty larmers are
getting their land in readiness for
sowing wheat. Thereis.no excuse
for a farmer buying flour in this coun
ty. With a little care m preparing
the land, and an outlay for fertilizer
of one-half what they spend tor flour,
they can make wheat raising a sue

Throws it Off.
There is no disease more diagreea
ble and uncomfortable than catarrh.
It attacks the young and the old, and
it is too often allowed to take Its
course. In such cases it frequently
becomes dangerous. The poison ex
tends to the throat and lungs, result
ing in complications that are not read
ily overcome. All forms of catarrh,
however, disaprear before S. S. S.,
and that medicine is now recognized
as an almost infallible remedy for the
disease. It regulates the liver, im
proves the digestion, and brings
about conditions that enable the sys
tern to throw off the malady. Catarrh
and its attendant aggravations disap
pear before S. S. S., and so do all oth-
r diseases that crow out of a bad
liver and impure blood.

The Blafne-IIarrison business is be
lieved to be nearing a crisis", and the
prediction is made by shrewd ob
servers that within the next sixty
days one of them will announce that
ie will not accept the Presidential
nomination of his party, if it be ten
dered to him. Mr. Harrison is de
cidedly averse to being that one, and
his friend, Secretary Foster, will vis
it Bar Harbor within ten days for
the purpose of trying to make Mr.
Blaine take the position of "loyalty"
towards his chief which Russell Har
rison's newspapers have assigned to
him, by writing a letter for publica
tion over his own signature stating
that he is' not willing to become a
candidate and that he is for Harri
son. One would suppose from the
talk of the personal friends of these
two men that the republican party

wished to be done that party must
slavishly obey that decision. This
sort of thing must be aggravating to
self-respecting republicans, ,,who
must think it, is high time for , the
party to go out of existence when it
is confined ip its choice of candidates
to two men. I
Representative Herbert,' of Alaba
ma, who Is understood to be a candi
date for, the vacancy on the Inter
State Commerce Commisssion made
by the death of Hon. W. L. Bragg,
of the same State, is in town. .Ala
bama has several other candidates
for the vacancy, among them Judge
Morrill and Col. Shorter. There are
also lots of candidates from other
states, including ex-Senator Reagan
and " Representative Culbertson, of
Texas, and ex-Congressman Ham
mond of Georgia. The appointment
will go, by law, to a democrat.

There is a weii-ioundea suspicion
that the State department is trying
to "pull the wool over the eyes" of
the colored brother with regard to
the vacant position of U. S. Minister
to Hayti. It is stated sem'i-officiairy
that the department on account of
circumstances which it deems inad
visable to make public, will not fill

but thajt the appointment will proh

This is expected to quiet the color
ed voters until after the fall elections,
when Mr. Blaine will carry out his
intention of selecting a white man
for the place, trusting to luck to bam
boozle the negro voters with other
half-way promises before the time
comes to hold another election. It
is not certain, however that this plan
will succeed, as many ot the more
intelligent negroes are fully aware
of what is going on, and if they can
only agree upon any one of the many
negro candidates for the place, it is
possible for them to compel his ap
pointment before the fall elections
