It is a mistake to consider Catarrh merely
u local trouble. It is unquestionably u
dicease of the blood, nnd therefore the right
wny to cure Catarrh is to remove from the
blood the impurities which cause and feed
it This Is to he done by taking HoodV
Sarsaparilla, the great blood jmrilier, which
ell'ectually expels nil traces of poison and
yerms of disease.
"I have been troubled for years with
and have never received the least benefit
from the many so-called catarrh cures. Of
late I have been taking Hood's Sarsopnrilla
and can honestly Kay that I certainly
improved. I know Hood's Sarsnparilla to
be a mighty good medicine." H. A.
(Jeoiigk, Athol, Mass.
"For years I have been troubled with that
terrible disagreeable disease, Catarrh. I

McMINNVILLE PRODUCE MARKET.
Corrected every week by Mead & Ritehey.
OFFICB OF SOUTHEJIN STANDARD.
McMissville, Tenn., Dec. It, 1S91.
The produce market is rather quiet
this week. Eggs have been and are
yet in good demand notwithstanding
they are lc lower in Eastern markets.
It is thought they will be lower after
Christmas. The temperature of the
weather will have much to do with
the production and price of eggs.
Dried fruit has been dull and lower
for several days. Too much dried
fruit in other sections has been held
back and at present there is too much
on the market. Can't tell whether
it will react or not. Poultry is very
dull In consequence of so much fresh
meats. There is a better demand for
good country butter just now. There
seems to be no demand for white

We snatched a feather from the wing
of time this week and gave ourselves
a plasant surprise in the shape of a
visit to Fleming's Drug Store. His
stock is immense and complete in
every respect; his Dressing Cases and
trays, in plush, hard wood, royal cop
per and antique silver, are new, neat
and novel; his Manicure Sets and
Work Boxes in plush and hard wood
are simply great; his Albums, photo
and authograph, would delight the
hearts of the testhetic; his Lamps,
vase and hanging, are perfect, show
ing what we of the 19th century can
do in the way of thu decorator's art.
His Books are gems of literature for
young and old. In fact the list is
too long too numerate here; you will
lave to call and see for yourself, and
we will guarantee a pleasant surprise

It is rather late for Martins to be

train to see one and the same young

conflicting interests we can't see, un-
ess each one stood out in the dark
and cold by turns while the other
held sweet communion with the fair
one. At least we know they were
both up all Sunday night, taking the
extra at 3 a. m. and arriving home at
5 a. m.
