THE EXCILLJEN'CE OF SYRUP 0? FIGS
. is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and bkill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California, Fio Svkcp
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasfci? the
trus and original lemedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the California Fio Stbcp Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the Cali
fornia Fio SrKup Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
cf the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial

I TONIGHT'S FISTIC EVENT.
Billy fetift and John Root
Billy Sti'ft and John Root w ill meet
tonight in a '0-round contest at Clans
Uroth hall, Davenport. The bout is
looked upon as the most important
battle which local sporting men have
had an opportunity to witness this
winter. The contest will not only set
tle an old rivalry, but will also deter
mine the middle-weight-championship
of the west.
The chances of the men for success
are very differently regarded by tight
critics, for the reason that there has
been very little chance to get a line of
the comparative abilities of the two
principals. Both boxers have proved
game and hard hitters as well.
Stift expresses hiius?lf as confident
of winning under any rules, acd that
Hoot is in good heart is evidenced by
the manner in which mot money is
coniinsr from Moline. where he has
iM-en training. Ilelegates from many
cities will help the Davenport and
Chicago ring followers pack the hall
Harry For lies ami Kid Rvan will
appear in a preliminary bout tonight.
t orlies is to go -0 rounds Willi h.ddy
bprairue lforc the In-City Athletic
club next month.
The Chicago papers of today tic-
vote columns to tonight's light, print
ing the records of Root and Mlft,
showing that no little amount of im
portance attaches to the outcome of
the event. There is a great deal of
betting in' Chicago. A special train
will be run by the Rock Island road
from Chicago, carrying about two
hundred sports from that city.
