is Joseph Chamberlain, plain
private citizen. lie knows his
own rnind and speaks it plainly. lie
has hosts of friends and admirers and
legions of enemies and detractors. lie
endeavors to do what he thinks should
be done for the good of the empire re
gardless of what others may believe,
and he seems to be alike indifferent to
cheers and hisses. His popularity va
ries like the mercury in the thermom
eter, rising to great heights at times
and sinking to zero depths at others.
Before and during the Boer war, which
his policy caused, he was execrated,
hissed and hated. When the Boers
were whipped and
their territory added
to that of Great
Britain the populace
cheered until their
throats were raw
whenever he appear
ed in public. lie has
been conspicuous in
nearly every party
In British politics
nnd has at different
periods of his career
blown hot and then blown cold on the
same public questions, and yet he
ranks today as the most forceful per
sonality in the empire. His ambition
is to be premier, and that ambition
would have been realized by this time
if A. J. Balfour had not been lxrd Sal
isbury's nephew. Old age and Illness
compelled Salisbury to relinquish the
premiership, but he managed to keep
it in the family. Joseph Chamberlain
has deserted Balfour as he deserted
Gladstone, and while he loudly dis
claims any desire to succeed the for
mer he knows very well that if his
present pose as trade savior of the em
pire finds favor in the public mind the
premiership will be his. In advocat
ing a qualified protective policy for
free trade England he declares that un
less Great Britain does away with an
tiquated trade methods and tactics the
empire, like the famous old campanile
in Venice, will fall in ruins.
Organized labor will have a powerful
antagonist in . the new national or

which has just been temporarily form
ed in Chicago under the leadership of
David McLean Parry, president of the
National Manufacturers' association.
The avowed purpose of the new as
sociation is to cope with union labor
nnd promote the interests of employers
and independent workmen. It will not
adopt peaceful methods, but proposes
to have a defense fund of $1,500,000
ready to fight or
ganized labor when
ever it becomes hos
tile. The new organ

every effort to en
act arbitration laws
when the existing
statutes will serve
the purpose and,
above all. will
preach the doctrine that public opinion

lie is a native of Tennsylvania and is
fifty-one years of age. Mr. Tarry says
it is the intention of the new associa
tion to choke off the inclination of or
ganized labor to conduct the business
of this country on an unlawful basis
and to throw a safeguard about the
nonunion workman and the man who
desires to work for his own interests

Charles M. Schwab, formerly presi

shipbuilding trust, is Just now in the

in connection with the sensational fail

In 1881 Captainf
Jones, one of Mr.
ants, happened in.
He was waited on
by young Schwab,
who, in the course of
ed a desire for em
ployment in the steel
works. "What do you c- M- schwab.
want to be?" asked Captain Jones. "I
want to be a civil engineer," replied
Schwab. "Are you sure you have the
qualifications?" inquired the captain.
"I am sure of it," was the reply.
"Very well. Can you drive stakes
for a dollar a day?"
"I can drive anything." said the lad,
"and will work for anything I get"
Thus it came about that after six
months' service In the grocery store he
was taken into the employ of the Car
negle company and began to drive
stakes at a dollar a day, and so well
did he drive them, so industrious and
Intelligent did he show himself and so
keenly alert was he to any opportunity

The better class of druggists, everywhere, are men of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devote their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and
purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with physicians' prescriptions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines.
They are the men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually includes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts of a first-class pharmacy and the finest and
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories and remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the medical profession, is usually their greatest
reward for long years of study and many hours of daily toil. They all know that Syrup of
Fig3 is an excellent laxativo remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they
are selling many millions of bottles annually to the well informed purchasers of the choicest
remedies, and they always take pleasure in handing out the genuine article bearing the full
name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package.
They know that in cases of cold3 and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
over-eating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and they are glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to the excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and, the
immense demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, but there are
individual druggists to be found, here and there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles
of the profession and whose greed gets the better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell the imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes have the name " Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup" and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the package, but they never have the full name of
the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package. The imitations
should be rejected because they are injurious to the system. In order to sell the imitations
they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes
off on a customer a preparation under the name of "Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup," which
does not bear the full name of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package,
he is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it be large or small, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation and
and deception in one case he will do so with other medicinal agents, and in the filling of
physicians' prescriptions, and should be avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that the great majority of druggists are reliable, we supply the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every
where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions
exist it is necessary to inform the public of the facts, in order that all may decline or return
any imitation which may be sold to them. If it does not bear the full name of the Company
California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return the
article and to demand the return of your money, and in future go to one of the better class of
ists wiio wau sell you what you wish and the best of everything in ms line at reasonable prices.
