ORANGE WOOD TOOTHPICKS.
Made In Sfinln itml Portugal und Ini|iurtoiI
hy Steamship Men.
"I wonder how many of the men who
enmo in hern and use those m ango wood
toothpicks," Kind a uinn in mi up town
hotel, "know whoro they ooino from
and how they nro mndo. Thoy are mad a
by tho elovorost whittlors in the world,
nml ovory one of thorn is of hand mnii
ufooturo. Tho peasants in Spain nml
Portugal mako thoiu, mid thoy first
found their way into this country
through tho medium of steamship offi?
cers. It is n fact that hotels in all parts
of this country aro using thnso orange
wood slivers now in proforouco tooithor
quills or tho old foshiouod toothpicks,
and tlu> demand for them horn has liccu
a purfcut godsend to tho peasants who
Uiako thom on the other side.
"A year or BO ngo I was ill Spain and
saw tho peasants making them. They
could turn ouo out with three slashes of
tho knife, and it was thoir enstom to do
them up ill package*of 110and sell thom
to tourists and steamship ofUcora for tho
equivalent of a cunt of our money. At
that time tlm poiisnuta mado thom in
thoir loisuro moments, but now 1 am
told many ponsauts lunko their living
inaiuifacturing toothpicks. You BOO, tho
demand for them has increased to Buch
an extent that tho peasants can Hell all
thuy mako. Tho steamship officers sell
tlium hero nt n profit of about it cunt on
each pnokago, which amounts to cousid
ornblo whon a largo number nro sold.
"A peculiar phaso of tho matter in
that not n cent of duty is asked for or
paid oil thom. They word formerly ru
coivod in snch small quantities that no
attention was paid to thom, and tho
steamship officers urn still nblo to get
them in frei?, because toothpicks aro tho
last tilings customs officers aro looking
for. And ns toothpioks they are really
excellent. Thoy aro strong anil flexible,
and instead of brooking tear, so that
there is no danger of tho end suddenly
breaking oil and remaining in tho tooth,
a characteristic of tho old brittle tooth?
picks. It is a wonder to mo that somu
one doesn't mako a business of import*
iug thom. 1 believo that steamship n0i
cers have a monopoly of the business uj*
to date, and I inn B?ro that tlu-ru would
bo money in it for somebody if ho
snatched tho business out of thoir
bauds."?New York Sun.

llrinps comfort and improvement find
tends to personal enjoyment when
rightly used. The many, who live bet?
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, l>y more promptly
adapting the world's best products to
the needs of physical being, will attest
the value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in tho
remedy, Syrup of Figs.
It- excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas?
ant to the taste, the refreshing und truly
bcne?cial properties of a perfect lax?
ative; effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
ami permanently curing constipation.
It lias given satisfaction to millions and
met with tho approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kid?
neys, Liver and Bowels without weak?
ening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Figs is for sale hy all drug?
gists in 60c and fl bottles, but it is man?
ufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, whose name is printed on every
package, also the name, Syrup of Figs,
and being well in formed, you will not
accept uuy substitute if offered.
