There was a collision between a

distance heavenward, all but two
reaching terra firm a without a
scratch. The train runs between

Eccentric Monkish Sralptorm.
Tho work of tlio monkish sculptors,
both in wood and stone, shows a vast
amount of linmor. Witness tho gar
goyles of onr old churches and the
devils, half human, half aniinal, which
adorn tho upper galleries and form tho
corbels and brackets of many cathedrals.
These one can scarcely believe to have'
tieen modeled ecriouMy as conceptions
of tho spirit of evil, for, if tho doctrine
of the personality of the devil were held
faithfully, it is scarcely probuble that
artists wonld liavo expcudedtheir satire
upon us torriblo and vindictive a person
as tho arch fiend, nor wonld the monks
havo allowed their misereres, and stalls
to be decorated with burlesques of bis
satuliic majesty. Good Words.

Brings common and improvement and
tends to personal enjoyment when
rightly csed. The many, who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, by 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 the
remedy, Syrup of Figs.
Its excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beneficial properties of a perfect lax
ative ; effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling eolds, headaches and fevers
and permanently curhg constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the 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 Fips is for sale by all drug
gists in 50c and $1 bottles, but it is man
