aii much of a strain as the present
bridge has been accustomed to. The
expense to tbe Phoenix Bridge com
pany to erect the lift span was
about 13.00). The span is op.
crated by an engine at cither end of

elevator, being worked by wire ropes,
which are attached to four uprights.
It can be lifted aOJ feet, but only

essary to allow an ordinary boat to

With a better understanding of tbe
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before projer ef
forts gentle efforts pleasant efforts
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that fcO many forms of
sickness are nut due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, tsyrupof Fifrs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with miLlionsof families, and is
everywhure esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, ia order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only aud sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of pood health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative',
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
used and gives most general satisfaction.
