The high standing of the Cali fornia Fiq Svhi'P Co. with the medi cal profession, and the satisfaction which the genuine Syrup of Figs has riven to millions of families, makes the name of the Company a guaranty of the excellence of hs remedy.

V Columbaa Isupreaaion His Pint la' trodactloa te Smoking Tobacco. It was on the island of Cuba, in the autumn of 1493, that tbe use of tobacco was learned by Europeans. Columbus makes tbe first mention of the weed in his diary nuder date of Oct 15. When he and bis men landed ou Cuban shores, the kindly natives, who mistook them for messengers front heaven, brought them numerous offerings. Among these. as stated by the admiral in bis diary, were some "dry leaves, which must be something much prized by them (the natives), for they had already brought uie some iu San Salvador as a present. " Little heed was paid to these leaves In the beginning by tbe Spaniards. They were in search of gold and saw no pos sibility of converting miserable weeds into that precious commodity. Iu the coarse of time they began to notice that as the natives went to and from their villages aud the shore smoke escaped from their mouths, "in a truly diabol ical manuer. " Soon they discovered that these unclad children of the wilds carried iu their hands a "burning stick," which every now and then they would put into their mouths and blow out a cloud of smoke. This had a most heathenish look, as it is recorded, to the Spaniards, aud they inquired, as well as they could by sigiiB, into the custom. They learned that the burning sticks were composed of the dried leaves so treasured by the natives, and that tbe custom of smoking the fragrant weed was supposed to lessen fatigue on long journeys. They tried it for themselves aud found this actually to be the case. Ou many a troublesome jaunt thereafter they were refreshed as the pleasant per fume curled ucward from their own burning sticks.

I suppose yon fellows know," he said, "that daring Centennial year Phil adelphia was a hotbed of bunko steerers and sharpers of every description. Well, I was detailed to keep an eye on these gentry, aud in time I became acquainted with most of the "big ones, who were generally exceedingly bright men. One in particular, who was known aa 'Slick Fete,' I took a great liking to, for he bad an inexhaustible fund of humor aud was a good hearted chap. Toward the end ot the Centennial exhibition one day I dropped into down town auction room where some fake jewelry was be ing sold. A lot of watches were offered, and I saw that they had been made evi dently for bunko stoeriug purposes, for the works were good, aud the cases were made to look like solid gold. They were finally knocked down for $2. 15 apiece, and I saw that tbe buyer was 'Slick Fete.' Jewelry waa out ot his line, but I knew he had some scheme iu view. Two months passed before I again saw Fete, aud then I asked him what be had done with the watches, lie began to laugh and said, 'Oh, skinned some windier with them I' Then followed the explanation. He had hired a room and inserted an advertisement iu vari ous papers something like this: 'Found A solid gold watch; blglu works; loser pay costs. Apply, etc Xoarly every crook iu town answered the ad. and claimed the watch. Fete, who made np as an old man, seemed a mark, and the 'fly' crook, in the hurry to de part, made but a cursory examination. 'The costs,' $10, were invariably handed over, aud in two days Fete had disposed of his stock." Philadelphia Record.

The Emporium aa Ooldea Rule Bazaar BAN FRANCISCO, CAL. Sport as a Developer of Character. Every now and then there crops out iu this republic the notion that if our more cultured citizens were our rulers that we should be much better off. We very much doubt it. If our more man ly citizens conld rule ns, then uo doutit we should be better off. Hut there is a freakiness and finicalness, an inability to give aud take, a general rubbing and creaking of machinery among men de veloped ouly ou the one side of the mind, which always everywhere makes them objectionable as rulers. Boxing is just as likely to make a man meek as books, but if you have a bully to deal with neither the boxing nor the books will avail anything, aud he becomes al most more objectionable as an editor than as a prizefighter. Of course sport will fail, lust as every other agency will fail, with certain men. On the other hand, for the great majority of men, well couiluctea sport will teach them fortitude, gentleness, meekness and fair play as uo other agency yet in vented by man can do. Outing.

"Talking about the humanity of man and the feliuity of woman," said the independent woman, "let me tell you a little story of a man aud a cat. The story was told to me by the wife of the mau, who is a domesticated woman. It seems that tho family cat, besides being of a sportive disposition, had more iu geuuitv than most cats or understood better how to relieve the tedium of a domestic existence. This cat caught mouse. Being well fed, her sporting iu stinct came into pluy, aud she kept the mouse to amuse herself with. That is a feline custom, as you are aware, but where tbis cat showed superior mental ity was in hitting upon a place to hide the mouse, thus protracting tbe amuse meut. She kept it in an old shoe in a storeroom. The man of the bouse dis covered tho proceeding, aud was almost as much amused as the cat. Did he put a stoD to it? No, indeed. For several davs he fed both the cat aud the mouse, after which the cat would take the mouse out for its daily exercise, to the delight of both conspirators Then the man's wife found them out. She took the mouse away and let it go." New York Commercial Advertiser. They Will Bay it. Mrs. Peck Henry, when I married you Mr. Peck There, Im glad you ve made up your mind to admit It at last.

The cockatoos constitute a branch of the great parrot family, and, with the exception of the species which inhabit the Philippine islands, are peculiar to the Australasian region. Leadbeater's oockatoo is one of the most beautiful of the group, hi white plumage being tinged with rose color W. T. Greene, the great authority on raize parrots, describes it aptly as "rasp- lierrv and cream" color but as his mental endowments are by no means equal to bis personal attractions he is less Donular as a pet than species with more intelligence than good looks. One point in his favor must be mentioned he is a less determined screamer man the majority of cockatoos. This, how ever, is not saying much. In his native woods of South Australia Leadbeater's cockatoo is very shy and difficult to ap proach. The birds sent to Kurope, no doubt taken as nestlings iu the majori ty of instances, remain usually wild aud suspicions, though they liear con finement well and do not suffer from the cold. At home in Australia the cockatoo is not beloved of the farmer, and it can be well imiiKiued that a flock of these big birds, amounting often to thousands, commit fearful havoc upon the crops. Heuce it is shot down as remorselessly as the sparrow ia England when it grows too numerous to be acceptable to the agriculturist. Like the rest, of the genu, this 'cockatoo usually makes its nest iu a hollow tree, where tho hen lays two pure white eggs. St. Louis Republic. A Fanny Mistake.

A Sell-Deoeption Some persons look forward to the en joyment of peace as the result of the satisfaction of their desires.

No Will-o'-the-WIsp was ever more deceptive; for desire, like man himself, Is ever progressive, and rightly so. One attained, auother iiitantly takes Its place, aud, if the first does not contain the element of peace, neith er will the succeeding one. Hopes thus founded are doomed to failure. Peace must come from within us. If at all. If it be not ours now, no future, however alluring, will be able to bring it to us. It Implies a double power over circum stances at I over self.
