THE EXCELLENCE OF SYBCP OF FIGS
is due not only to the originality and
aimr-iicity of the combination, but also
to the care and tkill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fio Svbcp
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
ail the importance of purchasing the
truo and original jeraed'. As the
genuine Symp of Figs is manufactured
by the Califoknia Fio Stbup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by ether par
ties. The hiph standing1 of the Cali

cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Fips haj
piven to millions of families, makes
Jie name of the Company a jfuaranty
cf the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on tho kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating- or weaken

A chronological review of happen
ings in Rock Island in the year that is
fo near to a close recalls many event
ful occurrences, some of which will
contribute to national history, as the
chronicler of the facts in connection
with the Spanish-American war can
not, and do his work faithfully, fail
to record the service that Company
A, as a part of the gallant 6U1 regi
ment, rendered to its country in an
hour of peril. So,, too, must atten
tion be paid to the phenomenal work
done at the (joTwnment arsenal, a
Rock Inland institution, in turning
out arms and equipments for the men
in the Held, tl.e past twelve month
witnessing unprecedented activity at
the island shops, where at one time
employment was given to 3.000 peo
ple, and attracting the attention of
the world, causing such favorable
comment, in fact, that Gen. Nelson A.
Miles, head of the army, felt con
strained to personally inspect the
building of the home
Modern Woodmen, the
fraternal insurance or
the world, many dis
inen have been a traded
here during the year, including Col.

MORE PUBLIC PARKS
Plans for the Improvement of the
City's Outlying Prop
erties. MATOE MEDLLL ON TEE SUBJECT.
Will Shortly Submit a Proclamation to the
Council Asking; Authority to Inaomrate
the Work. Which Will Probably bo Be
gun the Coming Spring; Some Sugges
tions. Mayor T. J. Medill has under con
sideration the preparation of a procla
mation that he expects to submit to
the city council at an early date, pos
sibly the January semi-monthly roeet-
during the coming
vear of Rock Isl-
i and's latest park acquisitions, the 40
acres lvin" north of ti'hteenth ave-
nue ami west oi feventeentu sireet.
mnl thp silp nn which the nAV n'qtpr
, , . 7 , . . ,
supply piant is situiieu. asiuc irom
f ottering suggestions with reference
tliereto, he will . ask authority, which
it is needless to say will be given, to
have plans drafted embodying' a gen
eral scheme of the proposed arrange
ment of both properties, which it is
the hope before many years will have
pissed will be laid out and beautified
in a manner they should be, for here
will be provided places of recreation
'dm ing the summer months for those
who are mingled with the hubub of
the city well shaded parks, located
high and dry, and where can lie had
the full benelit of the refreshing zeph
yrs that are so few and far between in
this delightful climate in the heated
The Seventeenth 6treet land, which
c insists of iu the neighborhood of
forty acres, is a donation to the city
from Frederick Weycrhauser. Capt. T.
i J. llobinson, Morris Itosenlield and C.
1! Deere, while the other site, located
between Twentieth and Twenty-second
streets, was purchased for reser
voir and park purposes and in all
probality will be christened Ileservoir
park. There has been no little
amount of discussion as to the appro
priate naming of tho -10-acie strip,
hut as yet it is a matter that awaits
1 Connecting Boulevard.
Among Mayor Medill's ideas and
a capital one it is. too is a proposi
tion to connect tho park with a bonle
vard, 100 feet in width, at ubout Six
teenth avenue. thereby providing
entrance to an exit from the system
of drivewaj-s which it is contemplated
to embrace in tho general scheme of
arrangement of both parks.
Mayor Medill is not unmindful that
it will require the outlay of a consid
erable amount of money to properly
improve the properties for the pur
poses they are dedicated, and his sog
gestion is therefore that a little be
done each year, lieginning next sea
son, and keep constantly at it un
til the work is completed, and then
Kock Island will have added to her
already beautiful parks two more
that will outshine anything that any
other municipality of her size within
the borders of Illinois can boast.
