There are but few people who can
be induced to believe that there ever
vas such a drink as "hog-ripened
whisky," but among the older genera
tion it would be no trouble at all to
secure affidavits that such a beverage
was well known in this immediate
vicinity, writes a correspondent of
the Philadelphia Record from Doyles
town, Pa. There was, in the days gone
by, in a village only four miles from
here, a man who kept a tavern that
soon became famous through its- pro
prietor's unique inventions and ingeni
ous contrivances to attract attention
to his hostelry. Then, as now, to suc
ceed meant the necessity of being well
advertised. In his effort to do some
thing new, "Uncle Billy," as he was
called, conceived an invention that was
potent in making his tavern the most
talked about one for miles around. The
result, as known to the patrons of the
inn, was some good whisky, of some
age, that had been continuously agi
tated while within the oaken casts
within which the drinks were kept for
What the curious ones discovered
about the invention was this: When
they went to see the ripening of the
whisky they found a hog pen with a
plank floor so balanced as to swing like
a big barn scale. There was an open
side farthest from the feeding trough,
and the sides were fenced.

The Adirondack guide who wants to
retain his patrons year after year must
know how to tell good stories around
the camp fire, as well as how to guide
the greenhorn through the pathless
woods, says the New York Tribune. A
grizzled veteran of the forest who had
charge of a mixed party of New York
city men and women last August had
well nigh exhausted his store of
"strictly true" anecdotes, and one
night was forced to draw upon his
imagination to supply the constant de

decided to camp for the night before
I became exhausted. To my horror.
I discovered upon searching my pock

The late Bishop Whipple's diocese
contained 20,000 Indians, and it was
his self-imposed task to keep in fre
quent communication with all of them.
The way the thing operated was sim
ple enough. The hogs were out in the
yard nosing around, when they heard
the splash of the feed as it was put in
the trough. Naturally, as the weight
came first on the side farthest from ths
trough, that side of the floor tilted
down under the swine's weight. When
they all got over to the trough that
side, in turn, went down. And so the
plank floor was rocked back and forth
every time a hog went in or out.
Connected with this swinging plat
form was another one which received
equivalent motion, of course, through
the medium of a long lever. On this
second platform were set the casks of
whisky which were to undergo the rip
ening process. Of course, 'every time
the lower floor rocked, so did the up
per likewise, and the whisky waS
shaken around with every motion.
Naturally, Uncle Billy's hogs were
fatter than anybody else's, because
they were fed so much oftener. Part
of the ripening depended on feeding
the hogs, so as to make them rush in
through the open door and thus shake
the platforms.

I did find, however, a small sheet of
dry paper. As I drew it forth I felt
that my life was saved; for, though I
had no match, I had thought of a way
to set fire to the paper.
"Hastily constructing a pile of the
dryest wood and twigs that I could
find, I knelt before it, with the paper
in my hand, carefully screened from
the wind with my body.. Seizing then
a stout and knotty oak stick, like a po
liceman's club, I struck myself a vio
lent blow over the head with It. Im
mediately a multitude of bright sparks
danced before my eyes. Instantly I
passed the paper cautiously back and
forth among the sparks. To my joy

gently with my breath. The paper be

twigs, I soon had the joyful satisfac

up a long scalp wound on the back of
my aching head, I thanked my lucky
stars for the clever expedient which

plants, entirely apart from their fruit
bearing value. There is great promise,
however, that we will ultimately secure
a fruit that is hardy and of good qual
ity. Some of the hybrid raisin grapes,
produced with a view of securing re

have proved hardy so far and have

The Distinctive Value
of Syrup of Figs is due to its pleasant form and perfect freedom from every
objectionable quality or substance and to the fact that it acts gently and truly
as a laxative, without in any way disturbing the natural functions. The
requisite knowledge of what a laxative should be and of the best means for its
production enable the California Fig Syrup Co. to supply the general demand
for a laxative, simple and wholesome in its nature and truly beneficial in its
effects; a laxative which acts pleasantly and leaves the internal
naturally healthy condition and which does not weaken them.
To assist nature, when nature needs assistance, it is all important that the
medicinal agents used should be of the best quality and of known value and Syrup
of Figs possesses this great advantage over all other remedies, that it does not
weaken the organs on which it acts and therefore it promotes a healthful con
dition of the bowels and-assists one in forming regular habits. Among its many
excellent qualities may be mentioned its perfect safety, in all cases requiring a
laxative, even for the babe, or its mother, the maiden, or the wife, the invalid,
or the robust man.
Syrup of Figs is well known to be a combination of the laxative principles
of plants, which act most beneficially, with pleasant aromatic liquids and the
juice of figs, agreeable and refreshing to the taste and acceptable to the system,
when its gentle cleansing is desired. The quality of Syrup of Figs is due not
only to the excellence of the combination, but also to the original method of
manufacture which ensures perfect purity and uniformity of product and it is
therefore all important, in. buying, in order to get its beneficial effects, to note
the full name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front
of every package.
