I havo had a close personal and po

ho entered political llfo. I can testify
from observation as to his political

Ho has always been the friend of

man of prominence had expressed him

Ono place In this world where wom
en seem to bo at a premium Is In tho
canal zone. Tho women employed In
tho zone are very fow In proportion to
tho men. Of a total In excess of G.G00
employes of tbo government 207 nrc
women. Their salary Is about what
tho nvorago man makes hero In qur
cities, or In actual figures they mako
$73.90 a month. It Is not that tho gov
ernment prefers men employes to
women, but tho expense of quartering
women would be so much more ex
pensive than arranging for men that
the latter aro employed Instead. Many
of tho womon are employed as stenog
raphers, telegraphers, copyists, time
keepers and clerks, although tho groat
majority of thorn are olther teachers
or nurses. Tho chief woman clerk re
ceives a salary of $175, whereas the
lowest salary Is $25 to a matron. Tho
majority of tho women aro wives to
tho men working on tho Isthmus, nnd
aro provided with married quarters.
It Is only In n very few Instances that
women who apply for positions In tho
zono are accepted. If they aro not ac
cepted as wago earners, however, they
aro making a good record for being ac
cepted as wives. Girls who go to the

Ingly, it is not claimed tliat Syrup of Figs

why it Is tho best of pcnonal and family

It acts pleasantly and naturally and
