OI IS FOID 5
*&*- IN ATHABASCA
Petroleum and Gas Said to Exist
in Great Quantities in Ca
Spsolal to Tho Journal.
Edmonton, Alberta, Oct. 2.Consid-
erable excitement has been caused by
the discovery of immense oil fields in
the country along the Athabasca river
and some three hundred miles to the
north of this city. For many years
trappers and hunters have told weird
tales about, ever burning gas gushers
and the existence of crude oil, -which
have been shown them by the Indians
living in that section. For a long time
no attention was paid to these reports
and even the Hudson's Bay company's
factors pretended to know nothing
about such things. But recently an
American prospector visited the coun
try known as the "Tar Belt," and the
stories have been renewed with tho re
sult that several parties have left for
the north country.
Experts who have been thru the
district say it is exceptionally rich in
both oil and gas and promises to de
velop into the richest oil field in the
world. They assert that these oil fields
will rival those in the eastern part of
the United States before many months.
The presence of natural gas, crude oil
in immense sinkholes or pools, and the
peculiar formation of the country,
show tha,t oil exists there in immense
It is understood that an American
company with a large capital has re
cently been formed to develop these
discoveries and already large sums
have been expended for exploitation
purposes. A drill is nowing being sent
up by the company and a thoro exami
nation of the whole district will be
made during the coming winter.
Eecently the Canadian government
conducted investigations in this dis
trict and the reports were not made
known until published in pamphlet
form by the government. This pam
phlet snows oil exists all anong the
eastern slope of the Eocky mountains,
from the international boundary far
into the northern wilds.
All" along this route companies are
boring for oil and in the southern por
tion of this province several large
gushers have beeen struck, and during
the latter end of the month at least
two of the companies will commence
shipping oil. It is estimated consid
erably over a million dollars has al
ready been expended in development
work by the several companies formed
but in return for this it is claimed
one of the companies has already over
this amount in crude oil ready for ship
ment as soon as the transportation fa
cilities have been completed.

Chicago, Oct.' 2.'While occupants of
the Trierweilers hotel were fleeing from
flames which had enveloped the build
ing, Patrick Walsh, one of the guests,
calmly sat in the window of the bar
and ate a 20-cent meal, which had just
been served. The combined entreaties
of his host and of the police did,not
avail to shake his purpose, and when
the firemen rushed, in at last, after ev

There are two classes of remedies those of known qual
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting"
gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance and another class, composed of preparations of
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting tempo
rarily, hut injuriously, as a result of forcing the natural
functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
the remedies of known quality and excellence is the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured hy the California
Fig Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasant syrup,
in which the wholesome Californian bine figs are used to con-
tribute their rich, yet delicate, fruity flavor. It is the remedy
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh and cleanse the system
gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming consti-
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi-
ples and quality are known to physicians generally, and the
remedy has therefore met with their approval, as well as with
the favor of many millions of well informed persons who know
of their own personal knowledge and from actual experience
that it Is a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim that
it will cure all maimer of ills, but recommend it for what it really
represents, a laxative remedy of known quality and excellence,
containing nothing of an objectionable or injurious character.
There are two classes of purchasers those who are informed
as to the quality of what they buy and the reasons for the excellence
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go
elsewhere when a dealer offers an imitation of any well known
article but, unfortunately, there are some people who do not know,
and who allow themselves to be imposed upon. They cannot expect
its beneficial effects if they do not get the genuine remedy.
To the credit of the druggists of the United States be it said
that nearly all of them value their reputation for professional
integrity and the good will of their customers too highly to offer
imitations of the
GenuineSyru of Figs
manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co., and in order to
buy the genuine article and to get its beneficial effects, one has
only to note, when purchasing, the full name Of the Company
California Fig Syrup Co.plainly printed on the front of every
package. Price, 60c per bottle. One size only.
