PLENTY OF TESTIMONY.

Charges Prelerred by Bob
Wallace Against One of
the Trustees.
Testimony of B. W. Fuller, 8.
K. McGinnis* on the Saine__J
Occasion.
Late Saturday afternoon Public Ex­
aminer Langlie's investigation of hospi­
tal finances was resumed. The wit­
nesses who went on the stand to answer
questions propounded to them by the
examiner as to.financee, and by Chair­
man MoQinnis of the asylum board as
to other matters, gave a good deal of
testimony. It was the most highly fla­
vored evidence that the chairman of the
board of hospital trustees, in his line of
inquiry, has yet brought out. It in­
volved sensational charges against one
of the trustees.
The witnesses examined Saturday
were: "Bob" Wallace, deputy public
examiner State Senator Bailey W„
Fuller and H. B. Wood and Attorney
Sanford, all of Jamestown.
The testimony of Attorney Sanford
concerned a small transaction abont the
destruction of some hay by hospital
oattle. In answer to inquiries, he de­
clined to divulge testimony derogatory
to the institution, which he admitted
bad been given to him by certain of his
clients, and which, as an attorney, he
had been toid in confidence.
The charges preferred by K. E. Wal
lace, and substantiated by B. W. Fuller,
against Trustee Halvor ^Johnson, are of
a grave nature. Mr. ^Johnson is, and
has been for years, one of La Moure
county's most respectable farmers,
whose reputation in his neighborhood
for integrity and sobriety is said to be
first class in every*particular.
The reputation and stauding of Trus­
tees Mitchell, of Wheatland, a promi­
nent merchant and highly esteemed cit­
izen, is well known as the equal of any
resident of Cass county, and the same
is true of Trustee Montague, one of
Stark county's most popular and repu­
table citizens. These are the other two
members of the board of asylum trus­
tees whose names were mentioned in
evidence of certain witnesses, as having
made some questionable deal, or as hav­
ing entered into some agreement of a
nature alleged to be wrong, on their
part, as trustees of this state institution.
It is needless to say that the fair-minded
pnbho will hold its verdict in suspense
until both sides of this controversy have
bad an equally full and fair hearing, and
will not hastily decide on this matter
nntil an opportunity for further knowl­
edge is
given from official end authori­
tative sou
roes.
R. E. WALLACE TESTIFIES.
R. E. Wallace, 46 years of age, resi­
dence Jamestown, occupation clerk.
Q. Mr. Wallace, state for how iong a
time yoa have resided in Jamestown.
A. Almost 16 years.
Q. Then you were here when this
hospital lor the insane was built?
A. Yes, sir. I assisted at the laying
of the corner stone.
Q. Then you have been acquainted
witn the officers of this institution from
the beginning, have you not?
A. I have.
Q. Have you had any dealings with
them during your time of residence in
Jamestown?
A. I believe in only one instanoe. I
sold.the asylum a couple of beeves last
fall.
Q. You have been in the banking
business in Jamestown, have you not?
A. At an early date.
Q. What position did you hold in the
bank?
A. Clerk, cashier, and then presi­
dent.
Q. Now then, Mr. Wallace, you have
held positions as cashier and president
of a bank, huving known the officers of
the institution from the time of its
foundation, having had financial deal­
ings with the same, I should judge you
a competent witness to state under your
oath whether or not, in your judgment,
thiB institution has been running ex­
travagantly and wastefully and the pub
lio tunds wrongfully used during the
time you have known the officers of this
institution?
A. I huve no doubt that in the early
days this institution could have been
run more economically, but with the
present appropriations it would seem
impoEsible for the trustees or the man­
agement to beextravagant or wasteful.
Q. Now, Mr. Wallace, with your
knowledge and experience, would you be
able to state what would be a fair and
average per capita for tbe patients to
maintain tbe same during a year, or
even a week?
A. I would be entirely incompetent
to answer that question, never having
given the. matter an attention what­
ever.
(Questions by the president of the
board, Mr. S. K. McOinnis.)
Q. Mr. Wallace, did yon hear at the
last meeting of tbe board of a con­
templated change in the officers of this
institution?
A. I did.
Q—And that there had been a deal
to put to effect a change of the officers
here immediately?
A—Yes, sir.
Q—Have yon heard or did yon have
any conversation with Mr. Johnson, a
member of this board?
A—I did.
Q—In yonr own way please relate
what ocoured in that conversation.
A —Late in the evening after the ad­
journment of the board I had conversa­
tion witb Senator Fuller as to rumors
I ft Ji iM
relating to the removal of several officers
of this institution. I had seen a letter
addressed to Captain MoGinms stating
that such a was fact and Senator Fuller
and I concluded we would see Mr. John­
son and get the beBt information thereof
that we could obtain from him. We
found that Mr. Johnson was engaged in
broom at the Capital hotel with ex
Auditor Porter. After some consider
time Mr. Johnson came down. Senator
Fuller met him and brought him to hiB
office where I was engaged in writing at
the time. After quite a lengthy con­
versation on matters in general we
broached the subject of the asylum and
asked hi-n what truth there was ia tbe
report that old Mujor Lovell, a veteran
Boldier, was to be removed from the
position of steward in the asylum, and
ex-Auditor Porter appointed in his place.
He admitted to us that that
was apart of the deal. He also admitted
that tlie plan had been to replace Dr.
Archibald with Dr. Moore. Some
friend of Montague's, whose name he
conld not remember, was ,to have lr.
Anderson's place and ex-Audilor Porter
the place of Ogden Lovell. We ques­
tioned him considerable as to the cause
for these changes and he said that Dr.
Archibald was a rich man and could
easily have a good practice in any of the
oities, but further than that there, was
no particular reason for any changes.
He felt impressed with that it was a fact
that 8U0B arrangement had been made
by and between Trustees Montague,
Mitchell and Johnson and that they
would stand together upon all questions.
I particularly objected to the removal
of Major Lovell and the substitution of
Mr. Porter in the offloe of steward at
the asylum on the grounds that tbe
Major was an old soldier, a staunch
republican, a good citizen and an
efficient officer while Mr. Porter posses­
sed but few, if any, of these qualiica
tions. We asked Mr. Johuson if it was
possible that he could be led to see the
error be had made before tbe meet­
ing in March. He said be bad nothing
against Dr. Arobibald nor any of tbe
employees, that the doctor had been a
friend of bis, but that he thought he
bad been in tbe institution long enough.
He^intimated that ciroumstances might
arise whereby be might be sick and un­
able to attend tbe meeting in March.
We asked him if there was anything
that we could do that would lead him to
change his mind and he said "Yes" he
could change his mind, that he was not
beholden to those other fellows. We
then asked what would indice him to
change his mind. He said "S500". We
laughed at the idea and told him that
we were not in that kind of business at
least n"t to that extent. Well, he said:
"I will get out of this thing and DO the
doctor's friend for $500 and not a
damned cent less". We informed him
that we could not do business with him
and he left the office.
Q. Were you around the Capital office
that evening?
A. Yes sir.
Q. Was Mr. Johnson in the hotel
when you were there?
A. I was BO informed.
(Questions by Examiner Langlie).
Q. Now, during the conversation you
have 6tated in answer to Mr. McGinnis'
question was there any intimation what­
soever of any of the parties mentioned
in your statement being parties to this
conspiracy, that the cause for the remov­
als intended was for tne extravagance,
wastefulness and corrupt management
on tbe part of the officers intetded to be
removed?
A. Mr. Johnson made no charges of
any nature whatever.
Q. Then you inferred from the con­
versation tbat these employes were nec­
essary and tbat if removed all places
would be filled by other parties?
A. There was nothing said during
this conversation as to the removal of
any of the employes in this agreement
as near aB we could gather and I believe
as far as he, Mr. Johnson, was cogni­
zant nothing else was contemplated
other than the removal of the superin­
tendent, the assistant physician and the
steward, which places were to have been
tilled as I stated before. I believe at
one time in speaking of the stenogra­
pher, Mr. Johnson said the, doctor
ought to write his own letters. The
conversation we had did not go further
than the removal and replacing of the
offiicers named nor was any reason giv­
en why this should be done. I am sat­
isfied that Mr. Johnson was not ac­
quainted witb the entire program, and
his conversation led me to believe that
he received the sum of 850 and tbe ap­
pointment of Mr. Porter as bis share in
the deal.
Q. Now, Mr.Wallace, during your long
residence in Jamestown, you have heard
charges of extravagance and wasteful­
ness in the financial management of this
institution, have you not?
A. I have frequently.
Q. Have you heard it as general gos­
sip, or could you give the name of the
originator?
A. I have beard it as a general
rumor.
Q. Then, according to your former
testimony and from your own knowl­
edge, you consider this rumor false, do
you not?
A. I so consider it. I believe in all
public institutions there is a greater
waste than tbere would be in a family
or an institution of a private nature. I
do not think any person will look after
tbe interests of the state with the same
care and economy exercised in his own
private business.
B. w. FULLER'S TESTIMONY.
(Examination by Mr. Langlie).
Bailey W. Fuller, age 49 business,
farmer, and residence Jamestown.
Q, For how long a time, Mr. Fuller,
have you been a resident of Jamestown?
A. Fifteen years this January.
Q. Then you have been in Jamestown
ever since the ereotion of tbis hospital
for tbe insane, bave yon not?
A. Yes.
Q. Are you at tbis time, and bave
yon been heretofore acquainted with tbe
offioers of tbis institution?,
A. I h»ve.
Q. Have yon had any business trans­
actions with this institution or offi­
oers thereof.
A. I have.
Q. Then, to your knowledge, has
there been any extravagance or waste­
fulness and wrongful expenditure of tbe
public funds?
A. No, sir. Not to my knowledge.
Q. Yon have represented this dis­
trict. bave you not, as senator of the
legislature?
A. I have.
Q. State tbe terms, please.
A. Three terms.
Q. Is that since becoming a state?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. You have then bad considerable
to do with tbe appropriations granted
for the maintenance of this institution?
A. I have.
Q. State whether or not, in your
opinion, tbe appropriations bave been
too large, and if so, whether or not you
endeavored to reduce them?
A. They always made me believe, at
least, that they were as little as they
could get along witb.
Q, Then, in your opiuion, when the
expenditures were within tbe limits of
the appropriation, the institution was
managed and run ecomically?
A. Yes.
Q. During your residence in James­
town bave you heard of charges as to ex­
travagance and wastefulness on tbe part
of tbe officers of this institution?
A. Yes.
Q. Have you heard that from any
certain parties, or just a general rumor?
A. Just a general rumor.
Q. You could not then state who was
the orighator of these charges?
A. I could not.
Q. Now, according to your evidence,
both as a representative in tbe legisla­
ture and along resident in Jamestown,
and knowledge of the management of
this institution, you believe those
charges to be false, do you not?
A. I do.
(Questions by Capt. McGinnis).
Q. Senator Fuller, did you hear the
testimony given by Mr. Wallace in re­
gard to the conversation that took place
between Mr. Wallace, Mr. Johnson, one
of our trustees and yourself, and that
took place in your office on the evening
after the board adjourned?
A. I did.
Q. Was Mr. Wallace's testimony cor­
rect in every particular?
A. It was.
(Questioned by Examiner.)
Q. Now, Mr. Fuller, was there any
intimation in tbat conversation that
would lead you to believe tbat the re­
moval of these officers named in your
conversation was for the purpose of es­
tablishing a more economical way of
managing this institution than witb the
present officers?
A. None whatever excepting Miss
Kennedy. He said the doctor could
write his own letters.
Q. Then as a whole, the reason for
the removal and change of officers and
employes was not for economy's sake, in
your judgement?
•A. No.
TESTIMONY BY MCGINNIS.
The inoident in the hospital investiga­
tion, where Chairman of the Board of
Trustees S. K. McGinnip, threatened to
throw E. P. Wells out of the" building,
for "interfering" serves to show clearly
one phase of the investigation. The
only reason for such threatened action
on the part of the chairman of the board
was that Mr. Wells had suggested to
Mr. Kellogg to rear) over his testimony
before signing it—u right which the ex­
aminer cheerfully consented to allow,
although it has been the customary
practice with nearly every witness ex­
amined to sign their testimony before
reading it. The testimony referred to
contained little regarding the finanoial
matters of the hospital and was mostly
concerned with other affairs in response
to questions by Mr. McGinnis such as
to correspondence in newspapers,
rumors, and other matters wholly out
side the scope of tbe financial investiga­
tion which questions the examiner per­
mitted to be asked, but not without in­
quiring, of Mr. MoGinniss, if such
questions would lead up to any fiuancial
transaction. After some slight hesitancy
the chairman said, "I know it will".
This closed that tession of the investiga­
tion.
Saturday Trustee McGinnis took the
witness stand and was nsked and
answered the following questions in this
connection.
Mr. McGinnis: Mr. Lanlie, I see in
reading over the testimony taken last
evening that my answer to your last
question was not as I intended.
(Mr. McGinnis recalled. Examined
by Mr. Langlie.)
Q. Then your answer was stated
more fully than takeu by the stenog­
rapher. was it?
A. I am not positive as to that, Mr.
Langlie.
Q. But you think it was?
A- I intended to have it more full
than it is here.
Q. Then you may state your answer
as you intended it.
A. My answer would be: I know it
will lead to financial and other trans­
actions which would, in my opinion, be
considered corrupt by some of the
members of the board of trustees. That
is my answer.
Q. Then would you state, to your
Knowledge, HI to in what respect the
corruption referred to in your answer
would consist
ot?
A. I believe that there was an ar­
rangement and an agreement upon the
part of certain trustees of this board,
which was a bargain for a consideration
on the part of at least one member of
the board, if not three, whereby certain
officers now in the employ of this insti
tution were to be removed and other in­
dividuals elected in their stead. I be­
lieve that this plot has been batching
for some considerable time. I, as a
member of this board, was to be influ­
enced by certain rumors, and reports in
regard to immoral conduct on the part
of Supt. Archibald. I bave heard such
reports as tbis: "That Supt. Archibald
had gotten a female employe of this in­
stitution in trouble and that in regard
to that be should he shielded, and that
the same should not become public
that be bad his wife take charge of said
employe until her trouble was over."
Such reports as these. I think, were sys­
tematically carried through, as a mem­
ber of this board, thnt I might be influ­
enced in removing Dr. Archibald. To
substantiate my theory in this matter, I
submit the following letter, whioh I re­
ceived through the mails on the 8th day
of this month. You will please read the
letter.
.r
(Bequest witness to read the letter).
A. "Jamestown, N. D. Jan. 7th 18(J6.
Captain McGinnis, Dear Sir:—Since the
meeting of your board this morning
bave come into possession of a few faots
in the city that I feel you should know
as president of tbe board. Mr. Johnson
has entered into an agreement with
two other members for a consideration
and they have the naming of the officers
of the hospital and Mr. Johnson names
the steward who is the ex-state auditor.
Tbe other members are to name tbe
physicians with Dr. Moore of this city as
superintendent. Should the scheme
they have worked hold together there
will be an entirely new management at
the asylum. You can use this informa­
tion as you think best, coming from a
person who wants to see justice done.
Yours truly.
After the receipt of that letter I met
Mr. Johnson. 1 said "Mr. Johnson" "1
hope for your sake, that there is no
truth in the letter which I am about to
read to you". I read the letter to him.
He replied "Yes, that is about it". 1
have Been Mr. Porter today and talked
withhiui. We afterwards had meet­
ing of the board th'it same evening and
tbere was a very strong pressure brought
to bear to have Dr. Archibald request
the resignation of Dr. Anderson, Mr.
and Mrs. Huddy and Miss Kenedy, the
stenographer.. Two members of tbe
board vigorously opposed such action OD
the part of the majority of the board.
Ths resolution was passed by three
members of the board, Mr. Johnson, Mr.
Montague and Mr. Mitchell voting for
said resolution, myself and Mr. Cornwall
voting against it. We were opposed,
Mr. Cornwall and myself, to tbe sum­
mary removal of Dr. Anderson without
cause inasmuch as the time for which he
had been employed would expire in
about CO days, and tbat he could then
be dismissed or left out without any im­
putation as to character or anything of
that kind. Mr. Cornwall and myself
opposed the removal of Miss Kennedy
on the ground that the stenographer was
absolutely necessary at this institution.
We also opposed the removal of Mr. and
Mrs. Ruddy on the grounds that they
were valuable employees. Notwithstand­
ing our protest the resolution was pas
sed. That is all.
RUSSIA'S GREAT RAILROAD.
It Will Have Feeders to Various For
Hons of India.
SEATTLE, Wash., Jan. 11.—Dr. W. O.
Hoenck, chief engineer of the Irkutsk
and Vladivostok division of Kussia's
great railroad, says that feeders will bo
built from the main line, one on an un­
derstanding from the Persian govern­
ment to Herat, another into Afghan­
istan over the Thibet mountains, a third
into Beloochistan and Afghanistan and
Persia. This will bring the railroad
tight into the doors of India.
•'You will be perhaps interested to
know," said the doctor, that the Rus­
sian government is building several
merchantmen to ply between Vladivo­
stock and some port in Alaska. Wo
are now building three of them at
Vladivostock and three more are to bo
built at Cronstadt they will all be
finished within a year or so.
Talks of Railroad to Alaska.
"It is not decided which port we will
go to perhaps one will be made for the
United States which is to build to some
point in Alaska, and wherever it makes
its terminal, that we shall make our
port.
This is apart of the grand strategic
plan, and it is being carried out by an
understanding between the two coun­
tries. The United States will build a
line north to Sitka, cro33 the Behring
sea islands as far as practicable, and
froin that point make connection with
the ships Russia is building, making
the journey from Alaska to Vladivostock
in 24 hours.
JAMAICA GINGER IN DEMAND
Kufiig Eduianila Arreste for Introduc­
ing His Kraml in Indian Territory.
AKDMORE, I. T., Jan. 11.—Rufus Ed­
munds was arrested for manufacturing
and selling intoxicating medicines in
the Indian Territory. His room at this
plate was searched and an officer found
five quarts of pure alcohol, from which
he made up his medicines, prin­
cipally Jamaica ginger, on the
sale of which he was doing a "land
office" business. He had a hearing be­
fore Commissioner Walcott on a charge
of selling illicit whisky, and the evi­
dence showed him guilty. He has so
far been unable to give bond, and when
he does the charge of introducing
whisky will be brought up. Matters
appear very dark to the doctor, as this
is a grave offense in the Indian Terri­
tory.
PROFESSOR AND CONSTABLE.
The Principal of a Serf alia School Stabs
R. W. Barrett.
SEDALIA, Mo., Jan. 11.—Professor ,T.
L. Green, principal of the Broadway
school, and Deputy Constable R. W.
Barnett bad a personal encounter in
school building in which a knife and a
revolver played prominents parts. The
constable was wounded in the abdomen
by a knife which the professor used,
and the officer was compelled to draw
his gun and threaten to use it in order
to save his own life. The trouble grew
out of Principal Green suspending Bar
nett's son for alleged cigarette smoking,
and in talking over the suspension, the
lie passed and a lively encounter fol­
lowed. Professor Green was arrested
and gave bond to answer for assault.
Onxnian Blanco Deniei.
PARIS, Jan. 11.—The Gaulois pub­
lishes an interview with ex-President
Guzman Biaucoof Venezuela in which
he denies any connection with the in­
surrection in Venezuela, and adds: "In
the struggle to maintain the integrity
of our rights, all parties are amalgam­
ated into a national party which sup­
ports President Crespo."
Governor ltriull«.yS Mensiige.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.. Jan. 11.—Governor
W. O. Bradley's message to the general
assi mbly of Kentucky was laid be lore
the two houses at Frankfort. It con­
tained about 12,000 words and dealt
mostly with local state affairs.
TREASON CHARGED
Twenty-two Members of the
Johannesburg Reform Com­
mittee Arrested.
I he List Includes a Brother of
Hon. Cecil Rhodes, Re­
cently Premier.
Borne Things That May Increase
Tension Between England
and Germany.
JoHANNESBtTHQ, Jan. 11.—Twenty
two members of the reform committee,
Including Colonel Rhodes, brother of
Cecil Rhodes, Six Drummond Dunbar,
Mr. Lionel Phillips and Dr. Sauer were
arrested at their club on the charge of
high treason, and conveyed under es­
cort to Pretoria.
Perfect quiet prevails here. The pop­
ulace is indifferent and the Uitlauders
are disarming.
PURCHASE OF DELAGOA BAY.
Said That Important Port Has Been
Secured by England.
LONDON, Jan. 11.—The most impor­
tant developments in the South African
situation is the fact that, in spite of all
denials, it is now believed in many
quarters that there is some truth in the
rumors that Great Britain has pur­
chased Delagoa Bay from Portugal. If
this be the case, an entirely new com­
plexion will be thrown upon the politi­
cal situation, and it may turn out to be
the excuse for the assembling of such a
powerful British fleet as the one which
will be anchored off Portland on Tues­
day next. As it is understood that the
government of the Transvaal has de­
manded, among other things, that
Great Britain forego her right to ob­
tain possession of Delagoa Bay, and as
Germany may loot upon this as a move
which will seriously threaten the fu­
ture of the Transvaal, the situation, if
the report is true, will become more
critical. Efforts are now being made
to obtain a confirmation or a denial of
the reported purchase of Delagoa Bay
by Great Britain.
Given a Short Time to Surrender.
In the Transvaal itself the Uitlanders
of the Rand, numbering about 3,000,
more or less, wvll armed men, have
been given until 6 o'clock to disarm,
and all those who do so, except the
leaders of the recent disturbance, will
be pardoned. As the Uitlanders are
surrounded by about 20,000 well armed
Boers, it may be presumed that the
surrender will take place before the
hour specified.
dispatch from Pretoria says that
the government of Transvaal announces
that it is determined to foster mining
and that those interested in it need not
sacrifice their holdings for the benefit
of the "agitating clique" of the Rand.
This dispatch says that only 10,000
Boers are under arms but it adds sig­
nificantly, that they will not disband
nntil the conditions of the surrender of
the Uitlanders of the Rand have fully
been carried out.
No Change in Germany's Attitude.
There does not seem to be change in
the attitude of Germany towards Great
Britain in regard to the Transvaal.
Conservative judges of the situation
claim, in spite of the warlike prepara­
tions being made on such an extensive
scale by Great Britain, that peace will
not be disturbed, and that the arma­
ments are more likely to prove a guar­
antee of peace than to provoke an out­
break of hostilities.
Arbitration Sentiment Grows.
The movement in favor of arbitrating
the Venezuelan question with the
United States is growing day by day.
The Westminster Gazette, after hav­
ing interviewed statesmen of all par­
ties, bankers and others having import­
ant interests at stake, says:
"Everywhere there were enthusiastic
expressions in favor of the proposal to
establish a permanent court of arbitra­
tion."
From diplomats who have had recent
interviews with the foreign office, the
Associated Press learns that there is a
decided change of sentiment there and
the unbending antagonism to arbitrate
the Venezuelan boundary dispute which
was first shown in high circles, has al
ost completely disappeared, and that
.matters look much more satisfactory
than they have at any time since the
dispute commenced.
SECOND ENGLISH SQUADRON.
(aid Another Fleet Has Been Ordered
l'ut in Readiness.
PORTSMOUTH, Jan. 11.—It is reported
here that a second special squadron of
warships, consisting of fast cruisers,
has been told off and will be held in
readiness for commission at a moment's
notice.
A Solution Expected Soon.
NEW YOHK, Jan. 11.—A dispatch to
The Herald from Berlin says in diplo­
matic circles there it is believed that an
amicable solution of the Transvaal ques­
tion is only a matter of days. The
warlike preparations of England are re­
garded as a ridiculous demonstration,
cover the inevitable check to her
policy. The emperor styles them "ruck
policy."
Contracted For a Normal Annex.
ST. CLOUD, Minn., Jan. 11.—Resident
Director Mitchell and Colonel G. B.
Ward of Alexandria, a committee of
the normal board, awarded the contract
for the new north wing of the St.Cloud
normai school for $24,983.
A decree has been gazetted, prohibit­
ing the export from France or the
French colonies of warlike munitions
intended for the island of Cuba.
KNOWLEDGE
Brings comfort and improvementtfl
tends to personal enjoyment whefc
rightly used. The many, 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 value 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
beneScial properties of a perfect lax­
ative effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
and 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 Bowels 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 a zed on every
package, also the name. Syrup of Figs,
and Being well informed, you will not
accept auy substitute if offered.
