BURN DEAD CATTl E
Big Task Before Peoria Authori
ties Resulting From Dis
CARCASSES OF 3,200 ANIMAL
Huge (Quantities of Kerosene ami
Carbolic Oil Tar Eam
ployed. Commissioner Schuek, of Peoria,
who has just completed the burning oi
the carcasses of 3S0Q head of cattk
killed in tht corning distillery lire
Saturday, found the task a very bit:
as well a- very unusual one.
It was found impossible to bury tin
cattle as at tirt intended, because of
the fact that the region beneath the
cattle pens is in realitx an inland
lake. It was made some years since
bj tin' filling in of the Illinois river
hank with manure and other refuse
from the distilleries. When it came
to the erection of the cattle pons this
made ground was reinforced with
cinders to a depth of two feet. On
ihi c tinders were laid the sleepers,
and the cattle pens constructed. Everj
vestige of the pen- was destroyed ly
tire, and it was thought the easiest
waj to rid the city f the carcasses
would lie hv digging bir trenches be
tween the rows of carcasses, and roll
them in it.
This plan was attempted at first.
Everything went all right until the
workmen got through the cinders,
when it w:i- found impossible to iliir
further on account f the presence of
water. The cut iii- region is ramified
bj small stream-. It was found im
possible to pump the water out be
eausc it ran in from the fixer just as
fast as it wa- removed.
Klalit Hundred First lay.
Then the burning process was re
sorted to and huge quantities of kero
sene and carbolic oil tar was used.
The kerosene came from the plant of
the Royal Oil company, only a short
distance away, while the carbolic oil
tar came from the Bushel! plant, also
close by. The work of burning the
carcasses commenced at 11:30 Men
da v morning, am! -ihi were disposed of
the first day.
After the carcasses were thoroughly
saturated with the inflammables, lum
ber was piled in between them and the
match applied. Instantly the tire was
a hot anil furious one. However, only
about half the carcasses were destroy
ed, so that it was necessary to go over
the lieid the second time to complete
The second time il was necessary to
turn the carcasses over with pitch
forks. The (ask was a most unde
sirable one. and it was with the trreat-e-t
difficulty that a stlflieient number
of men could be employed even at

High Class Druggists
The bettor clan of (lruccri.-t.'. ovoryvvhrn r.rp mm of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devote their lives to the welfare of their fcllorv men in BUpplying the host of remedies and
purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with phyeichins' prescriptions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original or ofSoinal 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 am! many useful accessor: s 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
Figs is an excellent laxative 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 genUfcio artier"- Jpofring the full
name of. the Company California l ig Syrup Co. printed on tbiEW front of every package.
They know that in eases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of the liv r and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
over-eating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and baneficj in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and they ate glad to sell it because it gives universal gati.-faetion.
Owing to the excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives nnd 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, ami 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 Fig.-"' or "Fig Syrup'' and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the package, but Ihey never have the full name of
the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package. The imitations
should be rej"cted 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 passcB
off on a customer a preparation under the name of "Syrup of FigSM or '"Fig Syrup," which
does not hear the full name of the California Fig Syrup C. printed on the front of the package,
he is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has bet n so unfortunate as to" eitter bis
establishment, whether it Ik? larce or Finall, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation and
and deception in one case he will do po with other medicinal agents, and in the tilling of
physician- prescriptions, and should le 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, hut 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
druggists who will sell you what you wish and the best of everything
