NASHVILLE MARKET REPORT. Corrected from the Nashville American every Thursday evening. Business is flowing along unintcr ruptedly ; prices are firm and in several instances show signs of ad vancing. The excitement in the coffee market in New York is causing local brokers and merchants to be on the qui vive, and if yesterday's advance is maintained an advance in local circles mav be expected. The outlook for an active grocery market is cood. (Jrain is slow, prices about the same. Strawberries have been getting more plentiful: they are worth all the way from SI to $6 per case.

Col lege, like Christmas, comes but once a year, and during the continuance of the varous exercises consequent upon this event, public interest here is about as completely absorbed in them as in the usual Christmas festivities. All of the school work and exam inations were finished up last week. The annual sermon was delivered at the C. P. Church on Sunday morning by Rev. D. C. Kelley, D. D., of Nashville. Every seat in the church was filled. While Dr. Kelley's effort was quite interesting and entertain ing throughout, to call it a sermon would be a misnomor, for it partook in very slight degree of the nature of a sermon. It was an addreas of much merit, rather of a seculor than of a re ligious nature, and was well adapted to the occasion for which it was de livered, but not to the day and place of its delivery. It obliterated the line which should be distiuctly marked between the pulpit and the platform. He used no particular text, but took for the subject of his address four wo men of the Bible, viz : the mother of Moses, Pharaoh's daughter, Debo rah, and Mary, and incidentally Martha, the sister of Mary. His ad dress was replete with instruction and good advice to the young ladies. Taken altogether it wa3 an excellent lecture,and the Doctor held the undi vided attention of his large audience for more than an hour. On Monday night there was a con cert consisting of musical and literary exercises, and concluding with a cal isthenic march and drill which cap tivated all who saw it. This branch has been taught during the last ten months by Miss Mary L. McClure, one of the music teachers, and the march and drill on Monday night was the prettiest ever given here, The young ladies were beautifully dressed in pink and green costumes, and the promptness, precision and grace with which they executed the various movements and evolutions was highly creditable to both them selves and teacher. The leading feature of Tuesday night's entertainment was the Oper- etta entitled Laila. The company of lovely maidens and troupe of beauti ful little fairies, each numbering a score or more,presented very entrauc ing spectacular effects. Miss Leila McClure as Laila, the May Queen, and Miss Mary Ritchey as Queen of the Fairies, sustained their parts ad' mirably, while all the participants acquitted themselves with praise worthy excellence. The exercises of the graduating class were given on Wednesday night. The essays were as follows: Miss Emma McCleary, of Texas; Salutatory. Miss Bernie Beasley, of Tennessee ; subject "Standing With Reluctant Feet, where the Brook and River Meet." Miss Carrie Mosely, of Tennessee ; subject "Foodies." Miss Lizzie Ford of Texas. (Miss Ford was called home by illness in her family a few weeks ago, and from that same cause, was not enabled to return.) Miss Leila McClure, of Tennesssee; subject "Whither." Miss Laura Edna Warren, of Ten nessee: valedictory subject; "Kest Aftm. TV.il . TWf A ftor Stnrmn fioo This was followed by the confer ring of degrees.and awarding medals and diplomas, also a short address by Mr. F. M. Smith, and a few remarks by other gentlemen present. The exercises throughout were irv terspersed with vocal and instrumen tal music of a high order, some of it was so high that we couldn't ("catch on"), and all of the entertainments were unusually pleasant, interesting, and entertaining. Medals were awarded as follows : Deportment out of school, given by Mrs. Rogers, to Misses Jennie Cun ningham, Bernie Beasley, Leila Mc Clure. Masrgie Buouo. and Emma McCleary. Scholarship Medal, given by Profs. Finney and Paschal, to Miss Mag. gie Buquo. Instrumental Music, given by Miss Davis, to Miss Emma Mc Geary. Vocal Music, given by Miss Reed, to Miss Leila McClure.

Elam, of Murfreesboro, both of whom had daughters in the College, were in attendance upon the the exercises. Mr. Chas. A. Teachout, of Hunt ingdon, and Mr. 0. C. Conatser, of Jamestown, were here to attend the exercises, and escort their sisters home. The non-resident members of the faculty left with the girls Thursday morning for their several homes.

Cure of Cancer and Ulcers. Judge T. C. McLendon writes to the Swift Specific Co.: "About three years ago Jerry Bradley had a can cerous sore on his face, near the right eye. It caused him a great deal of pain, and he lost the sight of the eye but was finally. cured by the use of Swift's Specific. This case is well nown in Wilkes county, Ga., where he lived." Mr. L. Cox, of Arkabutla, TateCo., Miss., writes : "I suffered a great deal from old ulcers for years. Your med icine was recommended, and after using six bottles was completely cured. Your medicine does even more than you claim for it. I have known it to cure cases which were thought hopeless. Mrs. A. M. Goldsmith, No. G74 Warren St., Brooklyn, N. Y., writes: "I commenced using S. S. S. about three years ago. I suffered much with a sore throat for over a year used a great many other remedies with no good results. My little girl, also, had sore fingers ; it commenced from the quick, and then the nails would come off. We doctered her for over two years, and when I began using S. S. S. I thought I would see what it would do for her. I am thankful to say that it entirely cured her. It is the best remedy I know of for the blood. I really be lieve it was the means of saving my lue. me doctor told me 1 had a throat disease similar to General Grant's. I cheerfully recommend it to all suffering from disordered blood.
