SOUTHERN STANDARD MCMINNVILLE. TENNESSEE. SATURDAY, FEB. i4, 189,
McMINMILLE PRODUCE MARKET.
Corrected weekly by Mead & Ritchey.
Okficb Southern Standard,
MeMinnville, February 13 1891.
A further decline of one cent on
eggs we have to report this week.
After last week's report went to press
a slight reaction, caused by colder
weather In the West, advanced the
price about 1 cent, but the milder
weather for the past few days has
caused a downward tendency to the
extent of fully three cents in the
Eastern markets. 1 1 to 12 cents is all
they are worth, with a prospect of
.lower prices, if the weather continues
mild, in the near future. As it re
quires 10 to 12 days in transit to the
Eastern market, dealers are com
pelled to be governed by past experi
ence and get prices down in advance
so as to avoid heavy losses. 10 to 11
cents is really as much as it is safe to
pay now, Just at the opening of spring.
We will begin to buy poultry for the
Eastern markets the 2d and 3d of
March, and then each week until the
latter part of April.

allowed liberty of conscience. Of courso,
much of the assumed unity of belief
Implied in these rigid regulations was,
in a manner, based upon the initial
agreement among the proprietors of ft
new plantation. They would not havo
come together had they not been of one
mind; and, being of one mind, the rules
which kept them up to the maik clvlcal-
ly and ecclesiastically were merely in
the line of a wise and necessary disci
pline. No man is compelled to enlist
at least, in time of peace but having
enlisted, he must submit to be governed
by the article! of war. But in truth, the
invasions of individual freedom were
carried very far in the seventeenth cen
tury. Among other customs, Mr. Wee
den tells us: "The impression of labor
for particular service was common.
Either the publio need or the demands
of private business could enforce it In
the harvest-time artificers and mechan
ics, compelled by the constable, must
leave their crafts, unless they had har
vesting of their own, and betake them
selves to the fields of their neighbors.
They worked for others at regular
wages, fixed by statute." Another cur
ious custom was that (this was in Dor
chester, 1637) "any member or house
holder" of that community "chosen to
goe for a Boulder" might leave the care
of any business at home to a friend,
who should be paid at soldiers' rates. If
the conscript was unable to obtain this
home-worker then one of four citizens
named might "enjoyno who they shall
think fltt to worke in this kind for tho
helpe of need;" this Bubstituto must
work or pay a fine.
Efforts to regulate wages by statute
were constantly being made, but of
course invariably failed. In 1663 the
General court made a law that "master
carpenters, sawyers, masons, "clapboard
dryvers,' bricklayers, tilers, joiners,
wheelwrights, mowers, etc., wero to re
ceive not more than 2 shillings a day
when 'boarding themselves,' or 14 pence
a day with Myett Inferior workmen
in tho same occupations wero to bo rated
by a constable and two other-." Be
sides this, "penalties were prescribed
against both giver and receiver of extra
wages." There must be no idlonoss,
under penalty, and special care was de
voted to "comon coasters, unprofltablo
fowlers and tobacco-takers." Knights
of Labor and walking delegates would
have had an unhappy time In those days,
beyond question. The laborer was
sometimes fined for taking extra pay,
though the employer was not punished
for giving it. Mr. Wooden remarks on
this: "The contrast in treatment of em
ployer and employed, in the attempt to
fine one and not the other for the same
offense, reflects the notion of the time
regarding labor. They firmly believed
that the laborer owed more to society
than it owed to him." The rewards of
apprenticeship showed this very clearly.
A boy might be bound from bis seventh
to his twenty-first year, during the
whole of which time he received no
wages nothing but his boatd and cloth
ingand at the end of his term his mas
ter was under obligation to bestow upon
him some such munificent provision as
"double apparel (that is, two suits of
clothes), a musket, sword and bandoliers,
and 20 shillings." A girl, after five
years' service, "was to receive a she
goat to help her starting in life." The
conditions of service were rigorous,
moreover. The courts whipped, im
prisoned and fined erring servants.
One Maxwell, in York, in 1651, is thus
condemned for "exorbitant and abusive
carriages toward his master and mis
tress." The charges amount to 7 pounds
10 shillings, and if he can not pay this
sum to bis master "then he may be sold
to Virginia, Barbadoes or any English

rode up through clouds of dust the ex tor
ior of the one-story "adobe" of the Hotel
del Comercio did not seem inviting. In
side, however, I found a series of court
yards, or "patios," avenues of trellised
vines, aviaries, canalized water-courses,
and other pleasant features. I hired a

Dusty as I was, and having been whol
ly deprived of the use of soap and water
during my six days' journey across the
mountains, the old prejudices of the
dweller in towns asserted themselves,
and I asked the landlady, in an off-band
and half-apologetio tone, if it would be
possible to have a bath. "Como not"
she replied, with the usual Chilian
formula of ready affirmation, and added:
"Would you like a swimming bath?" "Is
there-a swimming bath in the hotel?" I
asked. "Como not The water is not
crystalline, but it is clean and fresh,
and brought from the Aconcagua river
by an 'acequia.' " "Bueno, tamot a ver,"
said I, and we went to see. And behold
at the end of tho garden was a tank some
fifteen feet square, with water running
through it, and overhead, as a protec
tion against the snn, vinos laden with
pendent bunches of grapes.forming.as it
were, a ceiling to the bath. This
was delightful, and I bathed with
joy. Now after a bath a man noods
refreshment of some kind. "Como
not" was the invariable reply; and I
was shown into a bar-room, where I
found a greater variety of deleterious
drinks than you would meet with in
Bimllar establishments in Europe or tho
United States, and yet Los Andes does
not boast 3,500 inhabitants. Thus for
tified and rejuvenated, I was prepared
to dine, and I succeed in dining very
fairly, drank good Chilian wine, had a
pleasant talk with my friend Don Hono-

The Niece mud Ex-Adopted Daughter of
the Diva Adelina.
One of the most pathetio little figures
to be seen on Canal street of a bright
matinee day In New Orleans is that of
Carlotta Patti, the niece and coadopted
daughter of the great diva Adelina.
Two years ago, when Mme. Patti
Nicolini went South, and, stopping over
for a couple of concerts in New Orleans,
looked up her dead brother Carlo's
daughter, tho press far and near chron
icled the aunt's generosity in rescuing
her young relative from the deep pov
erty into which she had fallen. Mme.
Patti used not one, but half a dozon
languages, to express her exceeding joy
In finding such a charming and gifted
girl to bear away to her Welsh castle.
Carlotta was loaded with jewels, rich
nostumes, compliments, and favors of
every description. From a tumble-down
tenement to an obscure side street,
whero bitter poverty guarded the door,
she passed straightway into an atmos
phere of supremo luxury. Masters wero
to bo engaged to fit her for the high sta
tion awaiting her, for as Mme. Patti's
heiress she would naturally consort with
the rich and noble ones of the oarth.
Six months and then a year elapsed, and
Carlotta's old friends spokoof her as one
translated, caught up in a rosy chariot
to dwell in fairy land for evormoro.
No one, therefore, credited it, when
the report was circulated one fine day
that Carlotta had been seen peering
out of the batten-shuttered window of
the shabby old house in Toulouse street
Nevertheless It was true, and by slow
degrees the story of her return leaked
out Tho unhappy little cirl herself-
was loath to acknowledge the sad truth.
She stoutly maintained that it was only
visit to her mother; that in a few
months she would rejoin "Tant, Ade
lina," and in the meantime tried to
Itrengthen ber position by displaying
the gems and trinkets showered upon
her in the halcyon day3 of her poverty
to the capricious aunt
Days, weeks and months went by with
out a sign from the song queen across
the water. All the fine Parisian frocks
jrow old-fashioned and tarnished, the
jewels disappeared, French-heeled shoes
were broken, and still "Tant Adelina"
tarried. She has never again gone so
'or toward tho gulf in ber tours, but
very sunshiny day, when tho theater
folks crowd Canal street, a heavy-eyed
jirl drifts back and forth whose faded
finery and un 'pappy face never fails to
ittract pitying attention'. Cor. N. Y.
