BACKACHE IS KIDNEYACHE.
Usually There Are Other Trouble* to Prove It. Pain in the back is pain in the kid neys, in most cases, and it points to the need of a spe cial remedy to re lieve and cure the congestion or in flammation of the kidneys that is in terfering with their work and causing that pain that makes you say: "Oh, my back."

He Will Keep Going When a Common Horse Will Quit. As an old horseman who has bred and handled horses of many tvpes, says a writer in Outing, I have fre! quently been surprised at the answers | given by the majority of people when asked the question: "What consti tutes the most striking differences be-; tween the thoroughbred and the com- ! mon horse?" Nineteen out of twenty will name the beauty or the speed of the thor oughbred; but important as are both of these qualities, neither answer is correct. It is simply that the thor oughbred when he is tired will keep on with an undiminished courage and , ... , ~ ambition, while a common horse horse un der the same circumstances will quit, LESS MEAT Advice of Family Physician. i . lt Formerly people thought meat nec isarv fnr ctr^ncrtV» and mucnnin. essary for strength and muscular vigor. The man who worked hard was sup posed to require meat two or three times a day. Science has found out differently. It is now a common thing for a fam ily physician to order less meat, as in the following letter from a N. Y. man. "I had suffered for years with dys pepsia and nervousness. My physician advised me to eat less meat and greasy foods generally. I tried several things to take the place of my usual breakfast of chops, fried potatoes, etc., but got no relief until I tried Grape Nuts food. "After using Grape -NutB for the cereal part of my meals for two years, I am now a well man. Grape-Nuts benefited my health far more than the $500.00 worth of medicine I had taken before. "My wife and children are healthier than they had been for years, and we '""n iiicj nan utreii wr years, ana we are a very happy family, largely due to n Grape-Nuts.

Started by Mlle De Scudery In Paris in the Eighteenth Century. The feminine custom of having a flay at home originated in France in the beginning of the eighteenth cen tury with Mile, de Scudery, an author ess and a woman whom all the great personages of old Paris delighted to honor. Mile, de Scudery was as busy as nny modern American woman, and for that reason, being also a wise woman, she organized her activities. She had two days a week at home. Her Saturdays became historic, for it was then she received the brilliant men and beautiful women who made famous the salon of the Hotel Ram bouillet. On Tuesdays she received her intimate friends. Many French women of the great world of the present time have two days at home a week, says Harper's Bazar; others receive certain hours, say, until 3 in the afternoon, every day in the week, while women of the middle class who have many serious occupations permit themselves the pleasure of seeing their friends at home but one day in two weeks. In any case French women es sentially preserve the charm of the custom established by Mlle, de Scudery, who achieved her success by simple means which are quite within the reach of every American woman, i Her small house in Paris stood in a ! garden full of fruit-bearing trees sur ! rounded by tall shrubs and bushes. Conversation—that finest I of all the fine arte—was "littéraire et galante," gay and gossipy, according to the character of those present, and if the weather was fine they took a turn in the garden gathering and eating cher ries when the fruit was in season. In short, the day was truly and in all simplicity a day at home. The average American woman lives always under the oppressive shadow of the unexpected guest; whether she is making preserves, writing books, shampooing her hair or spanking the baby she is always under the strain of the fear that somebody will drop in; and such is the open door policy of American hospitality, particularly in small towns, to be m the house and not to receive the unexpected guest is to convert a friend into an enemy. What woman in what small American town cannot provide as much for herself and her friends? Let her try it and see what benefits she will reap from thus ordering her re lations with the world. think all writing sacred. _ iaiu away i n a clean receptacle to await the collector, who appears at regular intervals to transfer the waste pa pers to the sacred furnace. If the papers were burned by the Chinese How the Chinese Dispose of Letters and Waste Papers. The Chinese hold every scrap of writing sacred, 110 matter what tho characters express—the merest com mercial message, advertisement, etc. Since Confucius used those charac ters to teach his wisdom, they are holy. In the average Chinese community all letters and waste paper are laid by the Chinese in their own homes the ashes of the Bacred .writings would mingle with the ashes of wood and other fuel, and the ashes of Chinese writings are as sacred as the writing itself. The ashes from the sacred furnace are placed in sacks, the sacks are conveyed by wagons to the sea, and L/j wct£uiis iu me sea, ana there, in a Mon war boat, are carried war boat, are carried out where the tide runs swift and consigned to the waves.

The furnace in the Chinatown which nearly every large city in the United States harbors is generally a brick, oven-like structure, about five feet high.

The society of Mon War Sher (Club of Beautiful Writing) is made up In each case of the prominent denizens of Chinatown, who support it by voluntary subscrip tions, which pay the salaries of tho keeper and his assistant. Topics of Conversation. The pet subjects of today seem to be as follows: Racing, stocks and shares, politics (in small quantities), chiffons, bridge, motors and motoring, ® r two thrown in, ac cordln K to taste, on art, music, books, newspapers, furniture, flowers and gardening. This up-to-date mixture Is well spiced with current small talk on the marriages, deaths, debts, diet cures and divorces of our dearest friends and acquaintances. Among forbid den themes are the weather, religion (except, perhaps, Christian Science) and such tame topics as husbands' babies, servants and other domestic details of & like character. One of the Important Duties of Physicians and the Well-Informed of the World is to learn as to the relative standing and reliability of the leading manufactur ers of medicinal agents, as the most eminent physicians are the most careful as to the uniform quality and perfect purity of remedies prescribed by them, and it is well known to physicians and the Well-Informed generally that the California Fig Syrup Co., by reason of its correct methods and perfect equipment and the ethical character of its product, has attained to the high standing in scientific and commercial circles which is accorded to successful and reliable houses only, and, therefore, that the name of the Company has become a guarantee of the excellence of its remedy. TRUTH AND QUALITY appeal to the Well-Informed in every walk of life and are essential to permanent suc cess and creditable standing, therefore we wish to call the attention of all who would enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it involves the question of right living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is best each hour of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may be made to contribute to that end and the use of medicines dispensed with generally to great advantage, but as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at the proper time, the California Tig Syrup Co. feels that it is alike important to present truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-informed,because of the excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac ture, which is known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only. This valuable remedy h î been long and favorably known under the name of— Syrup of Figs and has at ta ied to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of family laxatives, and as its p, re laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well known to physicians and the Well -informed of the world to be the best of natural laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of—Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it will always be called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs—and to get its beneficial effects always note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company — California Fig Syrup Co.— plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for — Syrup of Figs— or by the full name—Svrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna—as—Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna —is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. and the same heretofore known by the name — Syrup of Figs — which has given satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists throughout the United States, in original packages of one size only, the regular price of which is fifty cents per bottle. Every bottle is sold under the general guarantee of the Company, filed with the Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C., that the remedy is not adulterated or misbranded within the meaning of the Food and Drugs Act, June 30th, 1906. CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP CO. ADDRESSES Louisville, Ky. San Francisco, Cal. U S. A.
