AND - OTHERS.
The better class of druggists, everywhere, are men of scientific attainments and high integrity. who devoto 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 appliance?. 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 genuine article bearing the full namo of the Company?California Fig Syrup Co.?printed on the front of every package. They know that in cases of colds 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 giveB 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 Bometimos 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 druggists who will sell you what you wish and the best of everything in his line at reasonable prices.

Lovers Mny Look Into the Future and See What Fate Has in Store for Them. When the shadows lengthen this even ins there will be a mystic significance to them noticeable at no other time of the year. It is Halloween, the time when the witches go swishing through the air on their broomsticks giving fortunes good or bad to those who will summon them by one of the magic spells prescribed for the occasion. Sometimes the witches take human form and douse you with a hand ful of flour, then scamper away to ring a front door bell and fade into the night aa the irate householder rages at the empty stoop. The natural enemies of these latter Vttobes, the blue-coated goblins of the law, declare they have a spell that will stop the pranks of the small boys and girls bent on Halloween festivities in the streets. The spell comes from headquar ters, and it has made the goblins deter mine upon a ruthless camnaign against the youngsters. If warnings do not suffice. It Is declared the prank payers will be vanked off to jail in a manner entirely un ceremonious and at variance with all cus toms of the witch world. The SoblJns a hard task before them, however, for they must first catch the witches, and every one knows how slippery and vapory some witches can make thenasel\ es. Allhallows Eve. or the festival of All Saints is one of the oldest festivals of the caiendar. It has always been surround ed with mystic symbolisms, and is especial ly a time when maidens and bachelors may delve into the future and-see what fate has in store for them in the way of life part ners There are a thousand and one differ ent methods for conjuring up these Phan toms. all of which have been handed down from generation to generation and from time immemorial. These customs make Halloween parties the merriest of theyear, and it is safe to predict that many Wash ington households will ring with laughter this evening as the children and the gTown ups Join in the games that are so entranc ing and so fraught with meaning. The really superstitious will find enthralling in terest in testing the charms of the night, while those who have no belief Insymbols will find no end of fun in trying the spells, good or bad. Games to Be Played. The games that may be played on such an evening as this have no counterpart. They are prescribed by ancient usage and are en titled to all the respect that age engenders. Because they are employed but once a year the novelty never wears off, and as each 31st of October rolls ajyuiu^ the games are recalled and replayedall the inte""? enthusiasm of the year before. Then, too, the games have an element of the m>a terious about them, and this is the night when all the spirits of the spook world are abroad. Ghosts are walking round about, and fairies are dancing around In a ring. Strange dreams will tonight foretell good fortune or adversity, and all manner ot divinations are most potent. Of all Halloween symbols, nuts ana ap ples have been most employed. Their witcheries have been immortalized in P?etI-y and prose. The most common method or telling one's fortune in love affairs is to place two nuts before the Are or on the stove, one representing one's self and the other a sweetheart. If the sweetheart I Jumps or crackles it is a sure sign that he is fickle and will prove false, but if both nuts cuddle up and burn brightly together it is an evidence that a happy future is in store for the twain. Sometimes three nuts are used, one representing the girl, the others two rivals. The nut which burns quietly and long betokens the successful suitor. Apples have a wider use. Small boys de light to attempt to bite one suspended by a string from the celling without touching it with their hands. Bobbing for apples in a tub of water is another delightful sport. The apples are placed in a tub filled with water. The boys gather around on their knees, and. with hands tied behind them, try to secure the fruit with their teeth. No one minds the ducking if he is successful in getting the apple. But charms with apples are many. One of the most popular is to peel an apple care fully. keeping the paring unbroken and uttering never a word the while, but think ing always of the sweetheart. Then in sol emn silence whirl the paring three times around the head and let it fall back of you upon the floor, calling upon the fates to form the letter of your future lord or lady'r name. Mystic Apple Seeds. Take the seeds of this same apple and name two of them for sweethearts. Place one on either eyelid and the one which sticks the longer shows who will be true. There must be no winking or cheating to make the less favored seed pop off, or the spell will be broken and no good will come of the trick. As a test of friendship a seed is placed in the palm of either hand, and the hands tossed backward over the shoul der. The seed that remains stuck to the palm indicates the steadfast friend. This verdict is also reached by placing the seeds on the eyelids and winking verj* hard. Have some girl name an apple, not tell ing who it is. Then pare it, and count the seeds as you would the petals of a daisy, like this: "1, I love; 2, I love; 3, I love I say; 4, I love with ail my heart; 5, I cast away; 6, he loves; 7, she loves: 8, both love; 9, he (or she) comes; 10. he (or she) tarries; 11, he courts; 12, they marry; 13, they part; 14. die of broken heart." The time charm Is: "This year, next year, some time, never." The house count Is: "Big house, little house, hotel, barn." The wedding dress: "Silk, satin, calico, rags." The wed ding trip will be in a "coaoti, wagon, wneei. barrow, chaise, steamer, ballooif, boat, rail way, automobile." "Cutting the'flour" is an old, old trick, but still a favorite one. On a small table is put a platter bearing a mound of flour which lias been moistened a little to keep It in good shape. A' ring is concealed in its depths. The leadbi"t?kes a knife and cuts off a thin slice. Thtj fcrthers follow, un til the ring comes to ngl^ indicating that the one who has found it.will be the first to marry. But for this lu^ky omen he or she must pay the penally of taking the ring by the teeth from thejflotifr. Then there is the "fortune cake." In this have been baked a rji)g, a thimble and a dime. The maid who ge? the ring In the piece slie cuts will be the first bride; she who cuts the thimble is~i|(MRied to spinster | hood, while wealth fpljo-vsrs the cut with money in it. diC(19 The Three (Dishes.

Should Your Druggist Be UnabUe to Furnish You, Write to KBLIUUn MEDICINE CO. INC., Newport News, Va T 1 V ? ?J In buying a Henry George Cigar you pay for the cigar; that!s all. You are not paying for premiums, chromos, schemes, free deals, etc. This is why the Henry George is a general favorite. the third bowl Is empty. One by one the players are blindfolded and advance to test their fortunes by dipping In the bowls. The girl who dips Into the clear water will marry a single man: In the black water, a widower, and the empty bowl signifies that she will be an old maid. Sometimes the bowls are filled with clear water, signify ing a peaceful, contented life; with wine, betokening a rich and eventful career; with vinegar, denoting poverty and misery, and an empty bowl Is a symbol of a life of single blessedness. Qhost writing Is very mysterious and ex citing. Each guest receives an English walnut with the solemn assurance, "Hold shore the ca[icilp what la found within, But do not scorch It, lest It be a sin." When the halves of each nut are parted a carefully folded piece of blank paper Is all that Is found. But when the paper Is held over the candle, behold! Words appear. The trick Is very simple. Dip a new. clean pen In pure lemon juice and with this, ee Ink, write short rhymes on a number of pieces of paper. Allow the Ink to. become perfectly dry, when It will fade out. The charms can be placed In a box and each guest asked to draw what appears to be a blank slip of paper. After the paper has been puzzled over and commented upon It Is handed to some one In the secret, who reads the ghost writing by means of a llgted candle. Everybody clusters around to watch the magical developing of the words on the blank pa|>er, as the "seeress" moves the message back and forth over the lighted candle. The heat brings out the writing. The verses and couplets may be taken from books. For example: October's leaves are not more brown Than the eyes of the girl your lore will crown. You will marry this ysar A maid yon hold dear. The stars decree A wife for thee. A sailor bold Does thy fortune hol& Perfume of bridal rota. And veil of lace. Shall fall, ere falls tbe snoWL Across thy face. If ? bappy wife you'd be Choose toe man whom next you sea. Trust not eyes of blue? For yoo they'll prove antra*. Other Superstitions. If you take a candle, go alone in a dark room at midnight and eat an apple be fore a looking glass the face of your future husband will appear over your shoulder and you can see his reflection in the glass. So they say. Another way to get a view of your bus band or wife-to-be is to go to bed on Halloween with a glass of water, la which a small sliver of wood has been placed, standing: on a table by your bed side. In the night you will dream of fall ing from a bridge in a river and of being rescued by your future husband, whom you will see as distinctly as though viewed with waking eyes. Or, wet a shirt sleeve, hang it up to the fire to dry and lie In bed watching it till midnight, when the apparition of your future life partner will come in and turn the sleeve. An up-to-date Halloween test is to hang up ribbons representing the various colleges. The girls are blindfolded and each picks out a ribbon, the colors of which wijl indicate the alma mater of the husband-to-be. This trick could be carried out with cards painted In water colors, with the various college colors or names. Children born on Halloween are said to be able to see and converse with fairies, witches and other supernatural beings. Sir Walter Scott makes use of this idea in "The Monastery." If on this evening you shake hands with a very blonde man you will have a roposal?but not necessarily from the londe?before the bells shall have rung In the new year of 1904. If you are not quite decided in your mind as to which of the two lovers you prefer, think of both just before you fall asleep, andlf you dream of one your fate Is decided. OrarKBAL COURT-MARTIAL. Findings in Case of Private Campbell Approved. A general court-martial has been- ap pointed to meet at Fort Myer for the trial of such persons as may be brought before It.

Md., and found guilty of de sertion and of conduct to the prejudice of good order and military discipline, was sen tenced to be dishonorably discharged the service of the United States, forfeiting all pay and allowances now due or to become due, and to be confined at hard labor for the period of one year. Gen. Chaffee says that the name of the judge advocate la omitted from those present at the meeting of the court, but he was sworn rind con ducted the case, and signed the proceedings, and it is evident that he was actually pres ent during the session of the court. It would have been better practice, says Gen. Chaffee, for the record to have shown the judge advocate's presence by name where the first roll call of the court Is recorded. Subject to this remark, the proceedings, findings and sentence were approved. Fort Monroe. Va., was designated us the place of confinement. Hesignation of Capt. Gilson.

NATURE'S OWN CURE Hyomei Cures Catarrh Without Dangerous Drugging of the Stom ach. Not until Hyomei was discovered has it l?eo? possible to truthfully say that a remedy for ca tarrh was known. This remedy is breathed through the Hyomei inhaler for a few minutes four times a day, anl during that time every particle of air taken Into the air passages and lungs is impregnated with the germ-killls* and health-giving Ilyomel. It is the only treatment that cures catarrh. Stomach drugging often causes disordered dlges tion or brings on some other diseases and never makes a permanent cure of catarrh. Hyomei not only kills the gerin6 lu the throat and nose, but piretrates#to the minutest air cells in the lungs and enters the blood with the oxygen, killing 'bo germs in the blood. It frees tho mucous membrano from poisonous microbes and gives perfeet health. A complete outfit costs but $1.00, and includes an inhaler, dropper and sufficient Hyomei for sev eral weeks' treatment. Henry Evans, 922 and 924 F street northw?'St? has so much faith in the merit of Hyomei that fcs agrees to return the money to any purchaser who may be dissatisfied. Druggists P. S. Williams 6c Co.
