Special to Journal.
Greensboro, April 21. During the
week just past, the market suffered a
decline of about 3 8 cents from the
high of Tuesday, due nearly entirely to
the calamity on the Pacific Coast The
uncertainty of the financial situation
caused a gloomy feeling to pervade the
holders of stqcks.and cotton sold by them
in fright. On Friday there was a par
tial recovery in the market, which was
resumed today, and the closing is otily
8 points lower for May than lait Sat
urday. , The demand for spot cotton
was not quite so brisk as the week pre
vious, but there is no halting in the
spindles, and good, desirable grades
will command a large premium until
the next crop is marketed. ' Nek Fri
day is notice day for May delivery, and
it is understood all tenders will be
taken care of, and we see no reason for
any decline, and if shorts get nervous,
they may force the market much

JUST BREATHE IT
Hyomel Curt Catarrh In Natural and Ra
No dangerous drugs or alcoholic con
coctions are taken into the system when
Hyomei is used in the treatment of ca
tarrh. Breathed through the neat
pocket inhaler that comes with every
outfit, the balsamic healing of Hyomei
penetrates to the most remote cells of
the nose, throat and lungs, killing all
catarrhal germs, healing the irritated
mucous membrane and effecting a Com
plete and permanent cure.
No medicine taken into the stomach
can possibly reach the remote cells of
the air passages, or give the imme
diate relief that follows the use of Hy
omei! A few days treatment is usual
ly all that is necessary to show how
quickly this remedy will cure catarrh. '
So successful has Hyomei been in the
cure of catarrh among his customers
that F. S. Duffy sells it under a posi
tive guarautee that it costs r-othing
unless it gives satisfaction. The com
plete outfit sells one dollar, while extra
bottles can bo obtained for 50 cents.
