FEATITKES OF TBADR
Canned Htots on the Eoom, Corned
Betfand Lunch Tongue
W GREATER DEMAND THAN EVER.
Depression in Breadstuff's Most Affects Low
GOOD PE0SPCTS FOE SEW CROPS
OFFICE OF PITTSBURG DISPATCH,
Tuesday, Alay 14, ISSB. J
In such times as these when Pittsburg's
leading industries are generally depressed,
and the pessimist is getting in his best licks,
it is good to find an industry which is on
the boom. It was the fortune ot the commer
cial editor of The Dispatch to-day, after
several unsuccessful efforts to find a trade
optimist who cocld see nothing in the situation
and outlook but what was bright. Said a lead
ing dealer in canned meats:
"Our trade was neTer as good as It has been
this season, lbe hot weather of last week
Cave a very decided impetus to demand for all
Linus of canned meats.
The leading article in onr line is corned
beef, and the amount of staff we are now
handling is fully 50 per cent greater than it was
a year ago. This notwithstanding an advance
in prices. Our 2-pound cans are 20c per
doren higher than last rear, and our 14-ponnd
cans SI a dozen higher. "Lunch tongues are 10c
a dozen higher, and our volume of trade in this
line, though not so greatly increased as in the
line of comedbeef, is 15 per cent better than
it was at this time last j ear." The bulk of the
canned meat trade is confined to the hot
mouth quarter. Picnickers and hunting and
nsning parties are tne principal consumer.
A Chicago Monopoly-
All the goods in this line handled in this city
come from Chicago, from the houses of Armour,
Llbby and Falrbank. The Libby canned meat
firm is now consolidated with Swift's. From
now until September the receipts here will ag
gregate about three carloads monthly, a total
of 3,500 cases or 70.000 pounds. The representa
tives of the Chicago canned meat houses sell
only to wholesale grocers. The trade here this
year will Teach 500,000 pounds, an amount fully
four times as -great as five years ago. A de
cade ago this industry was struggling to gain a
foothold. Now canned meats have become one
of the prime necessities of summer touring,
and F.ttsburgers would find it very hard to re
turn to the good old days of yore when this in
dustry was in the future.
The wise man spoke better than he kn ew when
he admonished, "Say not that the former days
were better than these." "We in this day would
find it very hard to prepare for the summer out
ing without the corned beef and lunch tongue,
of which our ancestors lived their day in bliss
The current number of the Minneapolis
Miller finds some crumps of comfort in the
wheat and flour situation, which it has not
been able to find for some months past. The
inquiry and demand for Hour has improved,
but prices are a shade lower. There has been a
slight improvement in the export demand.
Or the 08,220 barrels of flour turned out by
the Minneapolis mills last week nearly one-half
was exported. The light expert demand all the
past winter has been the depressing factor ot
flour markets. All speculative prognostica
tions on the score of export demands have
been upset by stubborn facts. The Miller says
"the Northwest is relatively above the rest of
the country in breadstuff markets. Except the
Pacific coast America is better than other
countries which export wheat and flour."
The news comes from Western trade centers
that low grade flour suffers most in the de
pressed condition of markets. Only favorite
brands are active, and even these brands can
only be sold by concessions. A week ago there
were.sw' comprehensions of a drought that
-&ould seriously ittlTeIKcoming cmiC-
fear has now been dispelled by timely rams.
Prom over the sea comes the word that the
young wheat plant in England, France and
Germany is most promising. Jn the French
ports on April 1 the amount of wheat in bond
was ll.Olb.OOO bushels, against 2,760,000 bushels
Apnll, 1S8S, and 1,233,000 bushels in liS7. These
figures cannot furnish much comfort to those
who still cherish hopes of a strong export de
mand for wheat and flour.

Chicago This was about the dullest day
witnessed in wheat in this market for many

hold the market under control. July delivery

Boston There is no material improvement
in the domestic wool market, although several
manufacturers havo been on the market in
search of supplies. Prices are quoted steady,
but to more large lines of wool concessions
would have to be granted. In-Ohio and Penn

been small, and it quite generally held at high

ness at the ranee of SG37c for merinos aud
cross-breeds. Foreign carpet wool is quiet and
unchanged in price.

A BE0WH -jlME FKO-iT AND FELICITY
Ten years ago Mr. Poorman and Miss
Eich met at a charity fair, where they stood
on opposite sides of a table and fished ior
the strawberry in the chanty cake and en
deavored to detect the flavor of lemon in
the lemonade. It was a case of love at first
sight. Or, to speak in a business way, for
this is a business story, they immediately
took stock in each other. She was the
danghter of a proud, rich man, who had
made his money by buying bank stocks
when they were away down; be, the son of
an oil broker who managed to scratch out a
living by trading in puts and calls. This was
an insuperable bar to their union. How this
difficulty was overcome will be told in the suc
ceeding sections of this true story.
"Love laughs at locksmiths" is an old and
true adage. These two fond hearts put their
heads together, figuratively, and tolled until
they had devised apian by which Mr. Poorman
could acquire a fortune, this being all that was
needed to raise huntto par and secure for him
the hand and the heart of the charming Miss
Rich. It was determined that he should en
gage in the real estate business. This import
ant preliminary being settled, he engaged an
office on Fourth avenue, and went to work.
As he was a pioneer in the business he had
very little opposition, and he soon had all he
could do. Love inspired his every act. In
imagination his adored one stood beside him
whenever he made a deal. Thus encouraged
ho labored early and late, and made his cus
tomers pay pretty steep prices for those days.
He also placed a great many mortgages, in
variably stipulating that the borrower should
pay the State tax.
Of course Miss Rich took a deep and per
haps selfish interest in Mr. Poorman's rising
prospects. Every sale he made, every mort
gage he foreclosed, brought them closer to
gether. She contribnted to bis success in
various ways by smiles of encouragement and
by inducing her gentlemen friends to throw as
much business in his way as possible; with
profound emotion she read of his first sale as
reported in the morning papers. It was to this
"Mr. Poorman sold three lots in Mr. Oreen

He reports a great demand for lots in this de
She cut the notice out and pasted it in her
scrap-book, among other literary treasures,
where it remains to this day. In the language
of the day this was "the making of him." "Ho
encouraged the reporters to write him np with
great liberality, and it was a Cold day when the
papers came out without a reference to Mr.
Poorman as "our leading real estate dealer,"
or as "our rising young capitalist who is doing
so much for the improvement of the city."
Of course Mr.Foorman soon became wealthy.
He bad chosen a pursuit that necessarily led to
Lfortune. As a real estate dealer he could not

At tne end, of three years Mr. Poorman was a

so Iwas another. Miss Rich had patiently
waited for him all those years waited for him
to become wealthy so he could stand before
her father and the faithful watch dog without
fear and claim her hand as an equal. But
while waiting she never grew discouraged. She
knew she had a sure thing of It; that the years
of separation would be few for was he not en
gaged in a pursuit thatbestowed affluence upon
all who followed it?
At length the crisis came. Mr. Poorman got
a corner on old Mr. Rich, and sued for tbe hand
of his daughter. The old man said: "You sav
you are worth 8100,000. Prove it." The suitor,
nothing daunted, drew from his Inside pocket
cash and mortgages representing the amount
specified. "Take her," said the old man, with
tears in his eyes. "She is yours so long as your
money holds out." And they were married
within two weeks. After a short excursion
tbey moved into a brown-stone front, lot GOr

chiefly for tbe amount of business that was not

QUIET AND EAST,
fbo Monetary Situation Without Any Fea-turer-LFaraers
Among the Borrowers.
The locil money market was -quiet yesterday
in all of Its ramifications. As compared with
the previous day checking was lighter and dis
counting of smaller proportions. There was
no cbinffe in rates, and small n.otS were
abundant The inflow and outflow of money
was about even. Farmers have been borrowers
inasmal way for a week or two, their object
being to improve their farms. The clearings
were f 1,& 9.565 46 and the balances 303,8.. 81.

The Oil Market Too Dull and Narrow for
The oil market yesterday was one of the
dullest for a long time. Trading was very light
all along the line, and fluctuations were too
narrow for profitable scalping. Oil City unan
imously adopted the new rules for trading in
futures. It is expected that Bradford and New
York will go the same way. There will be
some opposition here, bnt tho plan will bo car
ried. The market opehed at 83, and soon slumped
toS2 It then braced up a little and held
around 82 and 82 nearly all day, with very
little doing. Finally it rallied a fraction, with
a sale or two at 83, Softened and closed at 8
with the chances favoring a further decline to
day. Carrying was flat and freely offered at
Washington field news was to this effect:
The Robbing well was doing 20 barrels per
hour. The Weinach well was doing 10 barrels
per hour. The Brownlee well was in the Gantz
sand; the production was estimated at 9 bar
rels per hour. The Union Oil Company's
Robert Knox No. 1 well had been drilled
deeper in the sand; it was doing 30 barrels per
hour. Reed's Campbell No. 2 well at Taylors
town was in the sand and showing for a mod

CURED OF CATARRH.
MR. GEORGE LAMBERT, who lives on
Jones avenue, this city, near Twenty-seventh
street, has been cured of a very bad case of
catarrh nythe physicians of the Folypathio
Medical Institute, Ko. 420 Penn avenue. When
be applied for treatment he complained of
much soreness in his lungs,shortness of breath,
a choked up feeling in his throat, with much
dryness; the catarrhal secretion that he raised
from his throat and lungs was very tough and
tenacious; his eyes were weak and troubled
him very much about reading or seeing ob-
iects distinctly. The disease also extended to
lis stomach, so that he had great pain after
eating. On account of his food souring on
his stomach he had much belching of gas, and
was so bloated that his heart would frequently
palpitate, and gave him so much pain that he
thought he had heart disease. After becoming
cured, as above stated, he says:
"I am very glad to give my testimonial, and
Shall alway- speak in praise of the doctors to
my many friends for curing me of this dread
ful disease, and I cheerfully recommend all
others suffering from chronic diseases to call
on these specialists, who will frankly tell you
what they can do for you.
The diseases treated successfullv at thn
POLYPATHIO MEDICAL AND SURGICAL

diseases of the stomach aud all forms of skin
and blood diseases, and they especially Invite
those whose diseases have failed to improve
under the general practitioner's treatment to
call and examine their system of treatment
and cure, which have been the result of years
of careful study and investigation. Office

on for 13 years. Tbe aches and pains which
she experienced in almost every part of her
body was simply terrible. Those sharp, cutting
pains across the small of ber hack and loner
part of her body was almost unbearable. In
fact she suffered with all those diseases and
conditions peculiar to women.. For three
months her mind was unbalanced, and 'for
months she was.confined to her bed. She be
came very weak and emaciated, so that she
only weighed 98 pounds. No one expected her
to live, much less get entirely cured. After
receiving three months' treatment with tbe
physicians 01 tne uatarrn anu Dyspepsia insti

her disease, she says:

A Scaly, Itching Skin Disease Wiih Endlws
Suffering Carad by Cuti-
If I had known of the C-TiCUKA BncEDrsa
28 years ago it would have saved me S2CO (two
hundred dollars) and an immense amount or
suffering. My disease. (Psoriasis; commenced .
on my bead in a spot not larger than a cent, It
spread rapidly all over my body and got under
my nails. The scales would drop oil of me all
the time, and mv suffering was endless and
without relief. One thousand dollars would
not tempt me to have this disease over again.
I am a poor man, but feel rich to be relieved of
what same of the doctors said was leprosy,
some ringworm, psoriasis, etc. I took . . -and
... Sarsaparlllas over one year and x
half, but no cure. I went to two or three doc
tors and no cure. I cannot praise the CCTT
ctTRA REJrEDlE3 too much. Tbey have made)
my skin as clear and free from scales as a
baby's. All I used ot them was three boxes of
Cutictba. and three bottles of Cuticuiu.
Resolvent and two cakes of Cuticcba.
Soap- If you had been here and. said yon
would have cured me for 8200 you wonld hare
bad tbe money- I looked like the picture in
your book of Psoriasis (oleture number two
"How to Cure Skin D'seases"), but now I am
as clear as any person ever was. Through forca
of habit I rnb my hands over my arms and legs
to scratch once in a while, but to no purpose.
I am all well. I Scratched 23 years, and it got
to be a kind of second nature to me. I thank
you a thousand times. Anything more that
yon want to know write me, or any one who
reads this may write to me and I will answer it,
