as it did in Cuba and the Philippines.
As a result the isthmus is enjoying a

food, and thus prevent sick headache,
nausea, bloating, costiveness, liver and

The officers of the Rock River Trac
tion company, which proposes building
to Rock Island, have completed the
work of selling stock to local inves
tors, and everything is now ready for
the financing of the project, which
is expected to be done before the end
of the week. The New York capital
ists, who will finance the road, made a
proposition to the officers of the com
pany that if the officers would sell
shares to local parties along the line
to the amount of $50,000, the capital
ists would finance the road. The offi
cers now having completed the sale
of stock to local parties, there is no
doubt but that the great project will
go through and local officers believe
that work will be commenced this year.
It will be remembered that the com
pany has increased the capital stock
from $25,000 to $2,500,000, and with this
amount paid up there is no doubt but
that electric cars will soon be running
between Rock Island and Rock Falls.
The officers expect that it will not take
over two years to complete the road
after the work is started.
The officers of the road have not
given very much out for publication
during the past six months, and few
people realize the amount of work that
has been accomplished toward the fi
nancing of the project. They worked
steadily, but quietly ,and now have the
matter in such a shape that they feel
confident that the road will be built
Have IllKlit of Way.
One of the big undertakings that
they have accomplished is the securing
of the private right of way from Rock
Falls to this city, by the way of Proph
etstown and Geneseo. The right of
way is 53 miles long, and it has all
been secured, with the exception of a
small strip owned by the heirs of an
estate, and this will probably have

There are two classes of remedies: those of known qual
ity ami which are permanently beneficial in effect, actm?
gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance; and another class, composed of preparations .f
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting- tempo
rarily, hut injnrionslj-, as a result of forcing- the. natural
functions nnnecessaril-. One of the most exceptional tf
the remedies of known quality and excellence. Is the ever
pleasant Syrup of FIg-s, manufactured by the California
Fijr Syrnp Co., which represents the active principles f
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasant, syrup,
in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are used to con
tribute their rich, yet delicate, fruity flavor. It is the remedy
: of all remedies to sweeten and refresh and cleanse the system
? gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming cousti-
pation and the many Ills resulting: therefrom. Its active princi
ples and quality are known to physicians generally, and the
remedy has therefore met with their approval, as well as with
the favor of many mi I Hons of well informed persons who know
of their own personal Knowledge and from actual experience
that it is a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim that
it w ill cure all maimer of ills, but recommend it for what it really
represents, a laxative remedy of known quality and excellence.
containing: nothing of an objectionable or injurious character.
There are two classes of purchasers; those who are informed
as to the quality of what they buy and the reasons for the excellence
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go
elsewhere when a dealer offers an imitation of any well known
article; but, unfortunately, there are some people who do not know,
and who allow themselves to be imposed upon. ' They cannot exiect
its beneficial effects if they do not get the genuine remedy;
To the credit of the druggists of the I'uited States be it said
that nearly all of them value their reputation for professional
integrity and the good will of their customers too highly to offer
imitations of the
Genuine Syrup of Figs
manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co., and in order to
buy the genuine, article and to get its beneficial effects, one has
only to note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company
California Fig Syrup Co. plainly printed on the front of every
package. Price, 60c per bottle. One size only.
