leaving Us effect upon the msrket for
the general absence of orders from the

While th report cannot b fully con

that most of the firms sending out
-these, bearish reports to ths east, have
been heavy seller of Oregon liops the
past year or two for eastern account
and these contracts have a year or so
tn run. This makes the contracting
firm very desirous of purchasing hops

egga are showing much better quality
than eastern stock and for that reason

It la now stated that the former boosK
-ers of eastern eggs, seeing their plans
go to plsces, have decided to mix east
ern eggs with local stock, selling them
ss the latter. Ths trade In general sus
pects that this Is being done but cannot
prove it. Tber Is talk of asking the
government to taks a hand In the
matter, a It I against the pur food

It Is not.

The average man seldom realizes the great importance of physical
strength as a factor in his general health. To be weak physically is to
be weak mentally. If from various causes, or certain conditions, the
vitality of the body is run down the entire nervous system becomes
sympathetically affected resulting in the loss of strength of vitality.
To this condition we apply a medication which, coming directly in con
