It is u mistake to consider Catarrh merely
it local trouble. It is unquestionably u
disease of the blood, and therefore the ripht
way to cure Catarrh is to remove from the
blood the impurities which cause and feed
it. This is to bo done by taking Hood's
Sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier, which
effectually expels nil traces of poison and
.crms of disease.
"I have been troubled for years with
and have never received the least benefit
from the many so-called catarrh cures. Of

There has been no material change

prices in the near future is favorable.
Eggs for several years, have general

The New Coal and Iron Fields.
A correspondent of the Tullahoina
(Juardian, who recently made a trip
through the new coal and iron fields
near Viola, writes that paper as follows:
"In company with some friends the
writer left Tullahoma on Wednesday
morning last for a visit i the coal
and iron fields lately discovered in
the Cumberland range, in Grundy
County. Late in the evening we
reached the cosy little village of Vio
la and spent the night at the pleasant
home of Mr. I. C. Garretson, who is
one of the land marks in that section.
Though advanced in years, he is full
of life and vigor and furnishes a noble
example to the younger generation
by his business activity. After
breakfast we set out for the mountain
accompanied by several citizens of
the neighborhood, drove to the foot
of the mountain, tied up our horses,
and divesting ourselves of overcoats
began the ascent. After pulling from
cliff to cliff and falling over logs for
about two hours we readied the level
of the coal and iron deposits, which
we found to he of fine quality and in
abundant quantity. Not satisfied
with our investigations, however, we
trudged on until we reached the top
of the mountain, where we found

The Columbia Daily Calendar.
An old friend in a new dress, and
an article that has come to be one of
the indispensables of an editor's desk,
comes to hand in the Columbia Daily
Calendar for 1892. The Calendar is
in the form of a pad containing 367
leaves, each 5Jx2j; inches; one for
each day of the year, to be removed
daily, and one for tho entire year.
Each slip bears a short paragraph
pertaining to cycling or some kindred
subject. At the bottom of each leaf
is a blank for memoranda. The
stand is an entirely new departure,
being made of sheet metal finished in
ivory black, and is very compact. At

they will find themselves "in the

as given by these journals. "La

complaint that the crop did not ma

51.3, or a little over a half crop. This
does not mean, however, that the
total yield will be half as much as
last year, since the acreage is con
siderably less than in 1800.
Wheat Two months ago it seem
ed probable that the acreage of wheat
would be much larger than usual.
As the drouth continued, however,
from day to day and from week to
week, it became evident that the ex
pected acreage would be reduced, and
it now appears that only about one-
fourth the counties show a greater
acreage than last year; and by far the
greater number show a decrease. It
