POINT8 ON BINDING TWINE.
The Farmer Should Know How Many Feet
He Gets for a Dollar.
That the farmer is often taken ad
vantage of in the way of misrepresenta
tion by the store keepers is an un
doubted fact, and one instance that has
come to our attention in the last year
or two, that has been very profitable to
some of the dealers, is in the misrepre
sentation in regard to Binding Tivine.
Of lute years there has been intro
duced into this market a grade called
standard Manila, which is colored
Sisal to represent Manila. It is the
Standard twine of the Eastern manufac
turers, where Sisal twine is more large
ly used than Manila, because it is more
easily obtainable, and their object in
coloring it is, of course, to deceive.
Dealers handling this twine represent
that it is Manila twine. Manila twine
is never made less than 600 feet to the
pound, whereas Sisal twine is never
made over 500 feet to the pound, which
is 20 per cent less, and consequently
should be 20 per cent less in price.
The 600-foot Manila twine sells in the
Eastern market for not less than two
cents more per pound than the Sisal,
and consequently the dealers that can
sell this colored Sisal for Manila twine
are making this additional profit. The
colored Sisal, called Standard, does not
contain any more feet per pound than
White Sisal, so that, if White Sisal
Twine goes 500 feet to the pound, then
the Manila 600-i'oot Twine, being 20
per cent longer should lie that much
more in price, and I'nre Manila 650
foot Twine, being 30 per cent more to
the pound than the Sisal, should be 30
per cent more in price. Consequently
the lowest priced twine is not neces
sarily the cheapest. The milk in the
cocoanut is, how many feet do you get
for a dollar?
It takes the editor to make a long
One may sail the seas and visit every land and everywhere will find,
that men of affairs, who are well Informed, have neither the time
nor the inclination, whether on pleasure bent or business, to use those
medicines which cause exse33lve purgation and then leave the internal
organs lu a constipated condition. Syrup of Figs is not built on those
lines. It acts naturally, acts effectively, cleanses, sweetens and strengthens
the Internal organs and leaves them In a healthy condition.
If in need of a laxative remedy the most excellent is Syrup of Figs, bnt
when anything more than a laxative is required the safe and scientific plan
Is to consult a competent physician and' not to resort to those medicines
which claim to care all manner of diseases.
The California Fig Syrnp Co. was the first to manufacture a laxative remedy
which would give satisfaction to all ; a laxative which physicians conld
sanction and one Mend recommend to another ; so that today Its sales probably
exceed all other laxatives combined. In some places considerable quantities of
old-time cathartics and modern Imitations are still sold, but with the general
diffusion of knowledge, as to the best medicinal agents, Syrnp of Figs has come
into general tue with the well-informed, because it Is a remedy of known value
and ever beneficial action.
The quality of Syrnp of Figs is due not only to the excellent combination of
the laxative and carminative principles of plants, known to act most beneficially
on the system, with agreeable and refreshing aromatic liquids, bnt also to the
orglnal method of manufacture. In order to get the genuine and its beneficial
effects one should always note the full name of the Company—California Fig
Syrnp Co.—printed on the front of every package.

THE AMERICAN FATHER.
Average Man of Family Gives Too Lit
tle Time to His Children.
Is It right to the child that be sees
and knows so little of his father? Is
all this commercial strife worth the
price of a child being almost a stranger
to his own father? Men are sometimes
surprised that their ehildreu go in
stinctively to their mothers, and so
little to them. But aside from the nat
ural instinct which draws every child
to his mother, why should the fact
cause any wonder? A child attaches
himself to thosé who give him the most
attention, to the one who joins him in
his play. And if. as so many fathers
do, a man places busiuess first in his
life all during the week, and buries
himself In those modern curses, the
Sunday newspapers, on the day when
he is at home, what can he expect from
his child? it is a case of the child not
seeing the father during the week, and
the father not seeing the child on Sun
day. A man must be the wage-earner
and the family supporter. That Is the
duty laid out for him. But when that
is accomplished is it worth his while to
push on into the commercial maze at
the expense of the sweetening that
should come Into the life of every man?
In short, what profiteth it a man sup
pose he gain the whole world—and
not know his own child?—Ladies'

A Relic of Barbarism.
The time-bonored custom of giving
the bride her husband's name on the
wedding day is a relic of the epoch
when woman was a mere appendage.
She was an integral portion of'the
gens or family, now of her father, now
of her brother, now of her husband.
Site bad not independent entity of her
own. Hence she took over the sur
name of her legal protector, giving up
that of her father. Names were a la
bel indicating ownership, and changed
accordingly. This is so true that
wherever woman's rights were ac
knowledged—as was the case among
many wild tribes—the child received
the mother's name, or the appellation
of her gens, not that of the male par
ent. Thus the head of the family has
always bestowed his name on the
members, and the first outward sign
of female emancipation, when it does
come, will he the maintenance by
young wives of their maiden names,
with or without the patronymic of
their husbands. Why should it not be
so even now? A wife is said to be her
husband's half, very often sheHs his
better half. Is it not meet that this
relation should appear In tbe family
name? Tbe dualism of family names
is no unheard of innovation. In Bel
gium man and wife very often unite
surnames when they bind bands and
hearts, and "double-barreled" names
are as plentiful as blackberries in au
tumn. They bave usually a distin
guished ring about them as if they
were titles of nobility. Sometimes they
are alarmingly long; that, however. Is
not the fault of the system, but only
of the country.
Output of Oleomargarine.
The number of oleomargarine fac

go into it 23,000.000 pounds of milk and
cream. 33 . 000.000 pounds of beef fat
olco, 37,000,000 pounds of neutral
lard and 11,000.000 pounds of cotton
seed oil. The amount of oleomargarine
made in the Netherlands is greater,
and that made in Germany double tb&t
produced in the United States.
