fcu had In his ease. I think hi blood most
star contained the humor for at leiat tea
yean J but it did not show, except In the form
of a serotulous tore on the wrist, nntll about
fire yean ago. From a few spots which ap
peared at that time, It gradually spread so aa
to cover his entire body. I assure you he was
terribly afflicted, and an object of pity, when
he began using your medicine. Now, there are
few men of his age who enjoy as good health
as he has. 1 could easily name fifty pa no as
who would testify to the facts In his ease.
Tours truly, W. U. ftULUri."
FE.!iTHEFATKEI.! pleasure and
a duty for ma to state to you the benefit I
have derived from Uit ue of
Ayer s Sarsaparilla.
Six months ago 1 was completely covered with
a terrible humor and scrofulous sores. The
humor caused an Incessant and Intolerable
Itching, and the skin cracked so as to causa
the blood to flow In many placet whenever
' I moved. My sufferings were great, and my
Ufa a burden. I commeneed the use of the
Bamamrilla In April last, and have used
It regularly tinea that time. . My condition
began to improve at once. The sore, bar
all healed, and I feel perfectly well In every
respect being now able to do a good day's
work, although 73 years of age. Many Inquire)
what bat wrought such a eure Is my ease, and
I tell them, as I have hers tried to tell you.

Tli presont condition of th hop

hie in the an .ials of hops as a com mo I
ty, the prices ran up to a dollar and a
quarter per pound; the buying and soli.
ng inters its seemnd to havo lost their
headrf, and onn hut had to ask a price
to o'ttain it. The brewers came to their
senses first, when they found that they
were losing money, for the price of
Iwr was not advanced corrfspoiidingly
to the price of hops, and they began
looking around for a remedy, and found
in "substituss." W'eare ull familiar
ith tho results, prices receded to 20
cents, and notwithstanding the fact
that at the opening of the season it was
loarly evident that there were not
ops enough raised to supply actual
needs, still by the use of substitutes,
we came on the season '83-84 with
surplus. The season '83-84 up to June,
84, was without interest or exoitonmnt-
he price on this coast ranged from 1CJ
to 22 emits, growers and dealers had
ut little dillioully in Bottling values,
and the 42,000 hales on this coast.
harvested for 1883, were all sold. In
une, '84, tint prospects of the English
crop indicated only onedialf of an ordi-
ary yield, and without any pre
monition orders came from New York,
to make contracts for '84 hops at 17
cents f. o. 1 1. here. That price was
quickly raised to 20, 22, 23 and 30
cents, and as hijjh as 31 was paid for
choice growths. Dnaleri seemed to
lave run mad in their attempts to
secure stocks, and it looked for a timo
as though we were to have the prices
f '82 re-enacted. All this time the
irewers were si rent and impassive spec
tators of the scene, evincing little or no
anxiety as to the prices for their com
ing supplies, when suddenly, orders
tme as quickly to cease buying. Older
ioads among' dealers saw tho mistake
'iat was Wing insilo and visions of
82-83 were flitting before them when
thousands of bales of hops costing from
GO to 90 cents were sold from 40 down
to 15 cents, but the mistake wat mtde
and desperate remedies had to bo re
sorted to, to meet the exigencies of the
case, as growers were fully alive and
determined to U their own sellers. The
first move was to improve the English
crop; but tha improvement was only
made on paper. The English crop as
hirvestod, is only one half of an aver
ago crop and is fully 120,000 cwts Has
than last year. Germany has been
irought forward as a menace; Germany
was brought forward early last season
and you were told that she would have
50,0o0 bales for export. Did she have
theml No. Facts arc stubborn things
and facts show that she did not bavn
t' ... .
over 10,000 bales for export; and it is
equally as evident that she will havo no
nore hops to export this year than she
ad last Now Yerk is now presentod;
she was to assist to swelling the pro
ducts, that ono in reading reports would
think there were hops enough raised
there to supply all deficiencies, but
New York outs a sorry figure in the
sDectaclo. when with hr crjp picked
d baled shows a shortage of 45,000
tales from last year. The Pacifio Coast
is next paraded, and were one to believe
the reports 75,000 htles would Iki the
lowest estimate. Bradstreet's New
York Special scys tho lViflu Coast
will have nearly double what she had
ast year; what nonsense-we know bel
ter. For, taking the scarcity of pickers
in Washington Territory, whereby
thousands of hales were spoiled on tho
vines, and with the rain in Oregon dur
ing picking and with an unexpected
'lortage in tho northern counties of
our own State, the Pacifio Coast will
barely have 00,000 biles; but we will
follow them to the last ditch, and that
il the surflus left over from lost year,
and with it we have their last exploded
fallacy, for the world taken aa a whole,
shows that for the pant twenty-fire

their own selfish ends; for with thf
