Man niljrht often take from the low

suffering from fever eat little; lie
quiet in dark, airy places, and drink
Quantities of water. When a dog loses
his appetite he knows where to find

Heavy Cost of Unpaid Postage.
One of the most curious contest
ever before the public was conducted
by many thousand persons under the
offer of the 1'ostum Cereal Co.. Ltd.,
j of Uattle Creek. Mich
j 31 boxes of gold and
for prizes of
to those making the most words out
of the letters Y'-I-O -Grape-Nuts.
The contest wag started In Febru
ary, 1906. and It was arranged to have
the prizes awarded on Apr. 30, 1506.
When the public announcement ap-jx-ared
many .persons began to form
the words from these letters, some
times the whole family being occupied
evenings, a combination of amuse
ment and education.
After a while the lists began U
come la to th Postura Office and be
fore long the volume grew until It re
quired wagons to carry the mall.
Many of the contestants were thought
less enough to aend their lists with
Insufficient ixistage and for a period
j It cost the Company from twenty-five
to fifty-eight and sixty dollars a day
to pay the unpaid postage.
Young ladles, generally those who
bad graduated from the high school,
were employed to examine these lists
and count the correct words. Web
ster's Dictionary was the standard
and each list was very carefully cor
rected except thoee which fell below
Mi(H) for It soon became clear that
nothing below that could win. Some
of the lists required the work of a
young lady for a solid week on each
Individual list. The work was done
very carefully and accurately but the
Company had no Idea, at the time the
j offer was made, that the people would
j respond so generally and they were
I compelled to till every available space
J. In the offices with these young lady
rxauituera. and notwithstanding they
Worked steadily. It was lin-oitlti
to compbtc the examination until
Sept. over six months after the
prizes should have been awarded.
This delay caused a great many in
quiries and natuially created some
dissatisfaction. It has been thought
best to make this report In practically
all of the newspapers In the I'nlted
States and inup.y of the ttiagunlm-s In
order to make clear to the people the
conditions of the contest,
Many lints contained enormous
nuuitvera of words which, under the
rules, had to be eliminated "IVgsor"
would count "Peg gem" would not.
Home lists contained over 60.000
words, the great majority of which
were cut out. The largest lists were
rhftked over two aud In some cases
three times to Insure accuracy.
The tloOuO gold prize was won by
L. U Reese. 1227 15th St.. Denver,
Colo, with SS4l correct words. The
highest 110 00 gold prize went to 8.

If more than ordinairy skill in paying br.r3 the honors cf the

ensures the comrr.enda'.ioa cf the well irifDrmed. a.-.d as a rea
sonable amount cf outdoor L.'e and recreation is conducive to
the health and strength, so does a perfect laxatve tend to cne's
improvement in cases cf cor.sticat.on, til.cusr.css, headaches,

choose cne cf known quality and excellence, like the ever

effectual:-, when a laxative is reeded, without any unpleasant
after effects, as it acts naturally and gently on the internal
organs, simply assisting nature when nature r.eeds assistance,
without fripir.sr. irritating cr debilitating the internal organs in
any way, as it contains nothing cf an ctjecticr.atle cr injurious
nature. As the plants which are combined with the f.k-s in
the manufacture cf Syrup cf Figs are known to physicians to
act most beneficially upon the system, Lhe remedy has met
general approval as a family laxat -
worth cons.cer;r.g in making purchases.
It is because cf tbe fact that SYRUP OP FIGS
