Conditions throughout the genera) business world offor the highest en couragement. Large aggregate of vol ume of business for November, in creased foreign demand, and compir atively few failures, show an unusual condition of financial soundness. Export of food products continues large. Industries generally have done well. The most important event being the placing of orders for 700,000 tons of steel rails. The price situation is on the whole satisfactorary, as more advances than declines were recorded for the month. In cur immediate vicinity Southern California business is effected some what by the fact that November has passed bringing no rain. Business must of necessity move along very conserv ative lines until there is a good soak ing rain. Interest centers now in the coming orange crop, and orange buyers are particularly'active, and holiday ship ments are going forward. It is claimed that the fruit sent forward is better than the fruit sent Urt year for Xmas trade. The price for fancy navels is $2.00 top price, 15 cents less than opening rrice last year. The walnut crop is about moved. One beneficial result of this year’s short crop will be that no walnuts will be carried over, thus insuring for the coming season a clean market. Eastern demand for dried fruits is fairly active and prices are well sus tained The raiseii crop of state on upst grades is wed cleaned up. Under the management of the raisen combine it is shown the net. rate per pound received for whole crop will average about 3 1-4 cents, as against a net average return last year of l 3-4 cents The celery crop was the largest crop yet moved from this section. Barhy prices remained unchanged during the month. Corn brought full prices. A general advance went into on beans. The stocks are reduced and held firm. Failures for November were the lightest of any month during the year in onr district,, being 9 in number, with liabilities SII,OOO, assets $3,000, against 15 in November 1897, with liabilities of $31,000, assets $12,000.

It is interesting to read in a demo, cratic paper of this town recommen dations regarding the office of super intendent of public instructor The fact that the office' already is filled by a capable republican is ignored by that paper.

The Republi would be glad to Shewman hold the office indefinitely,—Repub- IWM. A medical scientists is authority for the statement that chi 1 ren and old people especially suffer from a lack of lime in the system Persons who habitually drink soft water, while they enjoy immunity from certain of the ills of life, expose themselves to others quite as much to be avoided Hard water helps the the teeth and the hones by furnishing lime, which is necessary to health, growth and de velopment. Old persons who drink but little loose their teeth more quickly than those who take a reas onable amount of drinking water. Lime, or food products in which it abounds, should be a part of the regu lar supply furrihbed to the system. Pue of the most valuable vegetables for this purpose is the yellow turnip or rutabaga, which shsuhl be given to growing children at least once a week. Properly prepared, it is very rs lisfa able and its food value has nevea been appreciated.— N, Y.
