Then with head proudly erect, she
walked to the door, threw It open and
cried. Just a bit hysterically In spite
of her effort to keep her voice steady:

In aplta of herself Mary's thoughts
were of her husband—tha first bitter
thoughts she had ever harbored
against the man. She turned sick at

youthful love and happiness. This, the

a strange and alien world, of which
ahe knew nothing and which knew
nothing of her, Mary could scarcely
believe that Dan was so changed —
that even now he would be willing to
snatch away from her the place which
held the memory of happier days.
She had not seen her husband since
the night In Senator Strickland's

Merchants' Exchange. Only one lot
of 100 tons was available at this fig
ure, however. For prompt delivery
$2>.50 was bid with no seller«.
The export demand for oata la like

tons of oats for England. The Den of
Alrlle took out 500 tons, and 100 tons
waa on the St. Hugo.
The barley market la also firm. In

feature of trading In the wheat mar

The week opened with a quieter bop
market, but prices were on a steady
basis. The Schmidt crop of 188 bales
at Aurora waa bought by H. L. Hart
at 11 centa.
In California, buying has been heavy,
according to advices received by deal
ers. The Ublmanns purchased 750

Seattle.—There is considerable ac
tivity in apples, but prices are not
quotably higher. One of the dpple
features during the week was the re
ceipt of several carloads of Jonathans
from the upper Columbia district. It
has been noted that the larger sixes
are watery, with defective cores, but
the run of medium and small stock is
well adapted to the trade, and will
prove good sellers. Prices are 75c to
$ 1 .
There Is a good undertone to the lo-
val vegetable market, and the feeling
reaches. Into practically every staple
offered, root stock and hothouse goods
predominating. The demand for local
celery ts good, the newer arrivals of
the golden hearts stimulating the de
mand. Prices are 40060c. Hothouse
leaf lettuce is no longer one of the
leading vegetable staples as In days
gone by. It has been a drug on the
market this season. Crate lots are
selling at 40 050c. The Improved qual

A subscriber to the Weekly Blade,
living In Pennsylvania, has sent ua an
account of a daybook kept In 1814 by
one of bis forebears, ths keeper of a
general store In Amity Township,
From this daybook
one catches a glimpse not only of
what 100 yeara ago It cost the Penn
sylvania citizen to live, but alao n
glimpse of how he lived. For instance,
"with nearly every blit of goods
charged would be attached one gallon
of whisky, rum or brandy, price 25
cents.” Home« were lighted with can
dles “ coating anywhere from 37%
cents to 87% cents a pound."
“ Calico waa 37% cents to 75 centa
“ Tea was $1 a pound.
“ In one charge a man bought one-
quarter of veal at 4 centa a pound.
"Eggs were never more than 10
centa per dozen, with 6 to 8 cents the
"Chickens, 12% to 18 cents apiece:
geese, 25 cents to 37% cents apiece.
“ Beef, 3 to 4 cents; wool, 10 centa
to 12% cents per pound; muslin, 50
cents per yard.
"The climax waa reached In one
charge—one bushel of salt. $16.”
We seem to have boxed the com
pass In the matter of tbe costs of liv
ing. One hundred years ago It waa
manufactured goods and commodities
against which transportation coats
were charged which were high, food
that was cheap. Today factory prod-
if things ever will be so comfortably
ucts are cheap, food dear. W e wonder
arranged that foou and manufactured
goods and commodities from far dis
tances will all be cheap.— Toledo
RESINOL WILL SURELY
ST O P THAT ITCHING
What blessed relief! The moment
reslnol ointment touches Itching skin,
tbe Itching stops and healing begins.
That is why doctors have prescribed it
successfully for nineteen years In even
the severest, stubbornest cases of ec
zema, tetter, ringworm, rashes and
other tormenting, unsightly skin-erup
tions. With the help of warm baths
with reslnol soap, reslnol ointment re
stores the skin or scalp to perfect
health and comfort, quickly, easily
and at little cost. At all druggists.—

While some dealers may haye found
It beneficial to stamp eggs, for the
purpose of showing the prospective
customer the date on which they were
laid, it is doubtful that the practice
meets with the general approval of
First, the datemaker may or may
not stamp the exact date on which the
eggs were laid. The stamp may be
put on a number of days after the lay
ing, when tlie eggs are received by the
dealer, or it may be put on even a
number of days after the dealer re
ceives the eggs, which means that the
matter of dating the eggs can be ar
ranged to suit the pleasure of the
Secondly, the average buyer who
wishes choice eggs—and most buyers
do— object to having the egga defaced
by a stamp. Eggs thus marked do
not make the appeal to customers that
they are expected to make.
The fact that eggs for sale to pri
vate buyers must appear aa being
fresh and choice, stands clear, and the
beat way in which to attain this appeal
is for the producer and the dealer to
co-operate In placing before the cus
tomers eggs which fill these require
ments. In other words, the eggs
should not be offered unless they are
•uch as are likely to fill the bill.
In order that such eggs may be of
fered. the producer has his duty laid
out for his performance, as well as
the dealer. A great deal depends upon
the manner In which eggs are sorted,
so far as their making appeal Is con
cerned. This ts a simple matter, how
ever, which the producer may attend
to as the eggs come from the nests.
About all there la to It la for those
of uniform color and sixe to be put
together. It Is the producers’ duty,
also, to keep the roosters away from
the laying hens; for It is a well-known
fact that fertile egga will become unfit
for use sooner than unfertile ones will.
When the consumer has done his
duty, so far as he can. to place good,
wholesome eggs on the market, it la
the dealers’ duty to keep them as near
ly to as possible until sold; and If they
are not sold before losing these quali
ties he has no right to sell them at
all. The producer must protect both
the consumer and the dealer by not
holding eggs long before placing them
with the dealer.— Fresno Herald.
