tends to personal enjoyment when
rightly used. The ninny, who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, by more promptly
adapting the world's best products to
the needs of physical being, will attest
the valuo to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the
remedy, Syrup of Figs
Its excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beneficial proerties of a perfect lax
ative; effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling colu3, headaches and fevers
ana permanently curing constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kid
neys, Liver and Dowels without weak
ening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drug
gists in 50c and $1 bottles, but it is man
ufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, whose name is printed on every

President Jackson called last
night's -special meeting of the Uoek ,
Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation to order ;at the rooms in
Mitchell & Lynde's building, and at
once called up the matter of having
the association properly represented
at the meeting of the directors of the
Modern Woodmen of America at Ful
ton tin week, when action should be
taken looking to the removal of the
head of ices to IJoek Island in accord
ance with the spirit of the last meet
ing of the head camp at Omaha. Mr.
Jackson spoke of how the enact
ments of ; he late iegislat ure of Illi
nois ha 1 brought the ijuestion of dis
solution of the injunction under
which the offices are continued at
Fulton, into such shape that it might
now be disposed of were the proper
effort made. The most desirable
course, therefore, would be to have
the association represented at the
meeting of the directors this week,
that their views might be obtained
as to t le best course to pursue.
Remarks were made by Messrs. W.
B. Ferguson. W. I'. Quavlc and oth
ers reltting to the subject, during
which it was reported that suitable
rooms had been secured on the third
floor o; Mitchell & Lynde's building
for the temporary occupancy of the
head offices, the association having
not only given its pledge to provide
for th rent for one vear, but to pre
sent a lot on which the permanent
home of the order should be located.
The association determined to roe
oiumc id the rooms in Mitchell &
Lynde's building, on which Mr.
Mitchell, who was present, guaran
teed the rent sdiould be satisfactory,
as temporary quarters. On motion
of P. L. Mitchell the chair was em

to Fulton this week to meet the M.

A Prosperous Year.
The year just completed is the
most prosperous the company has
ever had. The demand for its full
line of goods has been very great.
Among other tilings made by the
company in large quantities are hay
loaders, of which it -is learned, since
November last there were manufac
tured 12,0 ), all of which, with the
exception of about 500, have been
sold, and as the haying season is not
over for a month or more, it is
thought the number will be too few
to fill orders yet to come.
While there are 10 or 12 other
companies, many of them very much
larger, older and stronger institu
tions, manufacturing hay loaders, it
is modestly but emphatically assert
ed that twice as many "Rock Island"
loaders have been actually sold in
the last two years than" all other
makes combined, which speaks well
for the energy and enterprise of tho
company which make and sell them,
and for the merit of the loader itself.

Tho Goat to Have His Day.
The most popnlsr place in New York,
if the cholera comes, should be Shanty
town, and tho proudest animal on the
island will be the goat, for Dr. Kiem
perer of Berlin, after going over the sub
ject of securing immunity against chol
era, and after trying all methods of vac
cination, including the swallowing of a
pint of cholera bouillon, finds that the
milk of an immunized goat does the
work best and most easily. The price of
goats has been $5 and upward. WTien
cholera comes, this much ridiculed ani
mal may take a position in history higher
than the sacred bull of Egypt or the vac
cinated calf of Jenner. Harlem, too,
will become the center of New York and
not an up town annex. Medical Record.

Matter Dlscamed at the Council Meeting
The session of the council last
night was not a very lensrthy one.
Mayor Medill announced onp new
(ieorgc L. Eyster, who has been the
efficient health commissioner for the
past four years, to succeed himself.
Aid. Kinner, from the fire and
light committee, reported in favor of
advertising for bids fo- furnishing
100 to 140 low lights and also bids
for furnishing 100 low lights nnd 40
tower lights. This was done, he
said, in order to give the council its
choice as to whether it wanted the
combination tower and low lights or
all low lights. The latter, he ex
plained, were unsatisfactory in many
places, owing to the overhanging
trees, and he was of the opinion that
tower lights could be utilized with
economy in the out of town districts.
The matter was laid over until the
The Argus1 position on this matter
has been fully set forth heretofore
during the time the tower system
was in vogue here, and when they
were found impracticable as located.
The idea now is to use a combination
of low lights and towers. The low
lights to be used in "the business
parts of the city and the towers lo
cated in the out of town districts
where the shadows of high buildings,
etc., will not enveloy things in the
darkest gloom. In this way the ob
jectionable features of the trees could
also be overcome.
Fourth Avenue Walks.
The next thing of importance was
the matter of tilling to grade the
sidewalks in front of Fourth avenue
property. The matter of whether or
not the work should be let by eon
tract, provoked some discussion.
Aid. Evans contending that it should
be let out to teamsters of the city in
stead of allowing outside contractors
to get it, or others who have a num
ber of teams engaged in other lines
of work. It is needed by those at
home, he said, and they should have
it. Aid. Corken said he had been
approached by teamsters who wanted
it let by contract so they could get
stead' work, whereas, if the city did
it, the work would hot be as regular.
It was decided to secure bids on the
work. A report on the cost of the
proposed storm drain for the Twenty-fourth
street property was re
ceived from City Engineer Darling
and placed on lile.
Model City to He Built.
A "City of the Future," such S3 Bel
lamy dreamed of, will be shown at the
World's fair of Paris, which is planned
for the year 1900.
The Inventions Nouvelles proposes a
departure from the usual toy arrange
ment of miniature models, Eiffel towers,
etc., and advocates the erection of a city
on a site sufficiently large to illustrate
practically all the most prominent nevr
inventions, as well as the fruits of mod
ern electro technique. The cost of erect
ing this future model city is to lie cov
ered by renting out tho houses, hotels,
etc., as well as all the stores to the ex
hibitors. At the close of the exposition
the entire site, with buildings, etc., will
be utilized as the nncleua for a new
quarter of tho city of Paris. Philadcl-
Now Mutely Disagreeing,
Beside the highway that leads from
Bridgton to Norway are two burial plot

are interred the Woodsum brothers, and
of course every one who passes that wajT
is anxious to know why there is this divi
sion. The stage driver can tell you. The
Woodsum brothers could never agre?.
They disagreed in religion, politics and
every conceivable point that could be
brought up between them. Oh, their
disagreements in story form, as told by
the neighbors, would make a tale of
prickly interest. Of course they couldn't
agree to repose their bones upon the same
side of the road, and hence these two
graveyards, the stones glaring across at
eac other through rain, snow and sun

Elephants is afraid of mices, and so is
women. Women is smarter than men.
and as clexhauts is like women, some
elephants must be smarter than some

No doubt there are a good many
elephants smarter than some men.
