' THE ISLAND OF TAHITI.
It Mar Be Klsbtly Termed the Para
dlae of tbe Pacific.
Picture an island set in a reef of cora
of myriad hues the lagoon of a light
green, outside the white foaming break'
crs the vast ocean of intense blue. On
shore are great bunches of cocoanut
palms lifting their plumes in stately
magnificence, then there are lanes of
trees blossoming in red and yellow flow
crs, and nestling in their midst are the
low thatched houses of the natives,
The delightful and healthy climate of
the island brings to maturity all the
products of the tropics, which are no
where found in greater fullness and
perfection than here. The wayfarer is
soothed by the fragrance of sweet
smelling flowers and delighted with the
abundance of oranges, bananas, bread
fruit and cocoanut which give a peren
nial supply of food to the natives.
Tahiti may be rightly termed the
"paradise of the Pacific" or even the
world, as in no other place is there so
much variety of scenery. At every
turn the constant surprises keep the
traveler in a delirium of delight. Some
times the sea lies before him, the
waves wreathed in a foam of white
breaking the silence in a contiuuous
roar; on the other side the high, steep
mountains In forms of towers, domes
and steeples pierce the clouds. Now
and then a silvery band of water falls
from perpend Icnlar heights to the tur
uuient stream peiow. Tuen you pass
under the sheltering shadows of tall
interlacing trees which excel even the
grandeur of our elm. Farther on you

WATCH Uie children carefully. Their health, perhaps their live, depend on keeping
their bowels regular. Many parents make a mistake by giving their little
children the old-fashioned, violent purgatives which are racking and griping, and
are therefore not only unpleasant, but dangerous.
LAxakola does not gripe nor irritate. It is a pure, gerjtle and painless liquid
laxative. It is not only a sura laxative, but it contains valuable tonic projierties which
not only act upon the lxwcla.but tone up the entire system and purify the blood. A few
dros can be given with safety to very young babies, and will often relieve colio by
expelling the wind and gus that cause it. Great relief Is experienced when administered
to young children suffering from diarrhra, accompanied with white or green evacua
tions, as LAXAKOLA neutralizes the acidity of the bowels and carries out the cause of
the fermentation. It will aid digestion, relieve restlessness, assist nature, and induce
Bleep." For constipation, simple fevers, coated tongue, or any infantile troubles arising
from a disordered condition of the stomach it is invaluable. At druggists, 25c. and SOc.,
