If the Grecian women were beauti

the care they gave themselves. The
fashionable Grecian woman was of
free customs, but she was not depraved.
She resembled a professional beauty
more than any other class of modern
women, but she was far superior in
learning and accomplishments. She
could be a politician and write elo
quent speeches for the head of the
republic to deliver. She was versed in
sciences, and taught them in public,
and she was also a poetess, winning
her laurels over male competitors.

English Doctor Who Are Artnallr In Re
ceipt of Coromlitlons from Undertaken.
"Some English doctors are in tho
habit of receiving commissions Irdix
undertakers on funerals procured
through their efforts." This startling
charge is made by Sir Edward Fry,
until recently a lord justice of the
court of appeal in England, in an ar
ticle on the evils of secret commissions
in trade.
"A poor governess," he says, "died
In a school, and as soon as she was
dead the medical man pulled from his
pocket a sheaf of the cards of an un
dertaker,, and, giving one of them to
the person concerned, suggested the
employment of the undertaker. The
undertaker was employed, but the
medical man has not since been called
in, for the real nature of the transac
tion gradually became apparent to the
head of the tchooL
"What a psychological study (to use
a current phrase) is presented by the
doctor standing by the bedside of a
natlent hovcrlntr between Ufa and
death with a pack of V undertaker's
cards in his pocket! Imagine such a
doctor, perhaps pressed for his last
quarter's rent or his butcher's bill,
computing the possible fees to be
earned if the patient lire, and setting
thevs against the commission which
will be paid if the patient be success
fully burled; contrasting the speedy
payment of the prosperous undertaker
with tho probable delay and trouble
of getting the fees from the slowly
convalescing patient, and the con
flict between these degrading thoughts
and the sense of duty not yet extinct
in the doctor's breast." N. Y. Journal.

An English Schoolboy' Essay.
Here is a description of a camel in an
English board school essay, which, al
though inaccurate in points, will be
recognized as substantially true:
''The camel is a vcry useful animal
and the hump is full of water; and it
'can walked across the desert some
times with loads on its back, and1 give
little boys and girls a ride in the
country and walk across the desert
without any water. And it costs a
great of money, ond to buy it saddle
and its altars to put round its head.
And a thick chain so he should brako
it, and the camels feeds themselves on
the grass and stumbs of old trees and
hay." Chicago Inter Ocean.

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of tho many phys

forts gentle efforts pleasantefforts
rightly directed. Thero is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness aro not duo to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which tho pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millionsof families, and fa
everywhere esteemed so highly by ell
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by tho Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by.
all reputablo druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
used and glvcsraost general satisfaction.
