Call and examine our stock. iiuuiuiuiiiuiiiimiiiiiiiiiaiiuiiiiiiiuuiiiaiaiiiiiiiiiiui Throughout the country the local press is printing some very marvel ous stories about the price of broom corn. It is frequently stated that 300 a ton is paid, but this is not true and is misleading. Before the holidays the trust fixed the price at I200 a ton it is neither paying that nor selling any. There is but little broomcorn in the country outside of what the trust owns and the pol icy of the trust is to. lay quiet until there is a demand from small manu facturers and as soon as they com mence to buy from the small stock that is not in the hands of the trust, the trust will then buy all the stock to be had. Just what the price will be no one knows. If some" very choice corn was consigned to the market the shippers need not expect more than 150 a ton. The worst case of smallpox can be cured in three - days, simply by the use of cream of tartar. One ounce of tarter dissolved in a pint of hot water and drank at intervals, when cold, is a certain never failing remedy. It has cured . thousands. Never leaves a mark, never causes blindness, and avoids tedious linger ing. It will check and stamp out the disease quicker than anything else, and saves the great expense that sickness brings. In conclusion let me say, use a glass or china ves sel; never use tin or iron to make or keep it in, as both destroy the tar- I laric flavor., Mrs. J. T. Hr in K-. c atar. HATS CAPS ETC.
