AX nth a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts gentle efforts plea&antefforta
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that ao many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative. Syrup of Figrs. prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value rood health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating1 the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when yon pur
chase, that yon have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any act rial disease, one
may be commended to the most bkillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative.
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere. Syrup of

used and gives most general satisfaction

While excavating a largo cavern on
the southern coast of Malta we had dng
a trench in the soil 011 its floor some six
feet in depth in quest of organic re
mains. Tho ntives in the vicinity,
hearing of our presence, came in num
bers daily to witness the proceedings
interrogating the workmen with refer
ence to the object of onr researches, of
which the workmen were about as ig
norant as themselves.
One afternoon three stalwart fellows
paid us a visit, and while they sat on
the heap of dirt staring down into the
dark ditch below I dropped a Spanish
I dollar on a shovelful of earth, and the
next moment it lay with the soil on
the heap. Picking it up in a careless
manner, I put it into our luncheon bag.
add a few minntes afterward our friends
disappeared, muttering to one another
as they went.
Great was onr amusement tho next
morning to find that onr trench bad
been carried fully four feet below the
level we bad gained on the previous
evening. Not only that; several other
excellent sections of the floor had been
made by the natives in expectation of
finding buried treasure. Youth's Com
