Brings comfort and improvement and
tends to person al enjoyment when
rightly used. The many, who lire 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 value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the

beneficial properties of a perfect lax

profession because it acts on the Kid

ing 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;

Just in the prime of life, just as
everything seemed full of promise,
death comes and claimes our citi
zen, neighbor and friend John J.
Juhl. True, disease had laid hold of
him early in life, and so well, that
even the change to Yuma's genial
climate could not stop its slow but
sure progress. Friends hoped to
see him overcome its effort, and he
restored to good health, but it was
ordered otherwise. Tuesday the
17th inst., death relieved him from
all of his suffering at the age of 49
years. Mr. Juhl had been a resi
dent of Yuma for 21, years during
which he held positions of trust
and responsibility and gained a
large circle of friends, who sincerely
mourn his loss. He leaves a devot
ed wife and little duaghter who
have the earnest sympathy of the
entire communit'. He left an in
surance on his life with the A. O.
U. W. Lodge in Yuma for $2,000
and another for $1,000 with a lodge
in San Francisco.
He was up and around his room
till the very last, was conscious
that death was at hand, and made
all of the arrangements for his
funeral and burial. His funeral
was largely attended from the
Catholic church on Wednesda' and
his remains were laid to rest in the
Catholic cemetery. Kind father,
true friend, farewell. Rest in peace.
