Proceedings were commenced in

The contestants set forth, in their'
declaration the allegation of undue
influence having been exercised over
the deceased, who bequeathed ms
entire possessions with the excep
tion of a few financial remembrances ,
to his brothers and a sister in Ire
land. The contesting parties are
George, Hamilton and John Perry,

About $14,000 is involved in the
itigation. The man whose fortune
s in question will be remembered as
the good natured Charles Ar
nold, for so many years a conspicu
ous personage around the public of
fices, principally the government's
engineer department. His sensa
tional suicide of nearly two years
ago is yet fresh in the minds of all.
In 1890, prior to his departure for a
visit to bis old home in Ireland,
Charles made the will which his
American relatives now seek to dis
solve. Arnold's estate is represented bv
J. J. Ingram and C. E. Speidel as ex

Brings corn'ori and improvement and
tends to personal enjoyment when
rightly used. 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 tho 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 colds, headaches and fevers
ana permanently curing 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 thcpi and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drag
eists in 50c and SI bottles, but it is man
ufactured by the California Fig Syrup
