The golden sun climbs up the sky,
The shadows flee away,
Ohl weary heart, forget to sigh:
God sends the Easter Day!
Long was that night, chill was the air,
And grief o'er brooded long.
Yet is the new world white and fair,
Uplift thine Easter song!
The cross that bowed thee with its weight
By strength of prayer is stirred.
Till it shall bear thee soon or late,
As wings upbear the bird.
The life that thrills from star to star,
And beats in leaf and stem,
Is wider than the heavens are.
And blesses thee from them.
Wert thou cast down,wert thou dismayed,
Dear Child of One above.
Behold the earth in light arrayed;
The light of deathless love.
Ohl listen to the word that wakes
In every budding flower,
And take the bread the Master breaks,
In His triumphant hour.
For those who hear, and hearing yearn,
The King hath secrets sweet:
Their hearts within them thrilland burn.
They wait His coming feet.
Then swift the sun climbs up the skyl
The shadows flee away!
Ohl weary heart, forget to sigh,
God sends the Easter Day!

But if a Judas

men, in this hour of

istered to him at the darker moment
of Calvary. Then it was that the
voice of the pitying turtle .ove grew
so plaintive that never has it re
gained its lost happy notes:. Not only
did the swallow perch on the cross and
twitter tender words of consolation,
but also in its small, sweet way al
leviated the sufferer's pain by pulling
out a spine from the crown of thorns.
And the stork flying over 'the cross
loitered on the wing to call down:
"Stryk!"' "Stryk!" - "Strengthen!"
Wonderful Passion Flower.
In the passion flower the reverent
I agliiation has discovered not a
cross alone, but also the pillar of
scourging, the nails, thl crown of
thorns, and even Spots to mark the
five wounds of the crucified body.
The Spaniard will tell you that the
aspen 'trembles because that was the
wood of the cross. However this may
be, there is a delightful old legend
concerning the tree out of which the
oros. was made.
Aged Adam, weary of toil and sin
and eager for death, sent to the angel
guarding the Tree of Lite to beg a
boon. The messenger brought back
the welcome promise that Adam should
die in three days, and the added gift
of three small seeds which were mys.
teriously to be placed under the 'dead
man's tongue before burial.
From these seeds, the quaint narra.
tve. continuet, sprang three saplings
that later united, three in one, sym.
bol of the Trinity. With this mirac
t;lous tree Moses and David each
' wrought many wonders. But King
Solomon, his whole heart set upon the
bilding of the temple, had the tree
r. at down, Intending it for a magnifi
cent beam. Strive as the workmen
V,- -would, however, nowhere would the
beam ft, and, cast aside, it was later
uied as a bridge , across a near-by
s, stream. When the queen of Sheba
. 'made her notable visit she refused to
tread upon this bridge; Instead, she
knelt and worshiped, and having con
i 8ted to Solomon a vision she had
concerning It, the king at once or
tiered the sacred wood ncased in gold
. and sliver, and reverently hung over
'the door of the temple. Suubsequent.
RABPIT NOT EASTER SYMBOL.

The rabbit, which has long been as
; 0oe0ated with Easter festivities, s all
is m stake, and the aninlal that appears

a4of qt ggs when ther
ly, Abijah, son of Rehoboam, covet
ing the precious setting, had it taken
down, and after appropriating the
metal had the wood buried deep in the
earth-so deep, in fact, that a well
was dug over it, the famous Pool of
Bethesda, the tree of mercy at the
bottom giving healing qualities to the
waters. Finally, as the time appoint
ed approached, the tree rose and float
ed on the surface, and the Jews took it
and made it into the cross upon which
the Christ was crucified.
Wood of the Cross.
As some claim the aspen was the
wood of the cross, others select the
weeping willow for the tree upon
which Judas hanged himself.
There is an old legend as sinister
as the fatalistic Dedipus myth that
claims that before the birth of Judas
his mother dreamed that her child
would murder his father and betray
his God for mloney. To prevent this
tragedy, the babe wa3 put in a chest
and cast upon the sea, but was rescued
and adopted by a king.
According to tradition, Pontius Pi.
late as well as Judas committed sui
cide, for upon his return to Rome so
indignant was the emperor over the
governor's actions while in Jerusa
lem that he east him into prison, a
humiliation too great for so weak a
spirit to bear.
Weird is the legend told concerning
the restless, tormented ghost of him
who could wash his hands but not his
conscience of offense.
The body of the suicide was first
cast into the Tiber, but so turbulent
were the storms that immediately fol
lowed that it was taken out of the
river, carried to Gaul, and thrown into
the Rhone. Tempests were the in
stant result. Again the body was re
moved, this time to Lake Geneva. The
same disasters in its train. Once
more an attempt was made to over
come the evil. Surely, in a far-away
mountain lakb locked in the center of
the Alps even the spirit of a Pilate
could do no harm. Vain hope. There
arose storms of wind and rain so great
in fury that flocks and herds were
drowned, trees torn up by the roots,
and happy-hearted homes washed away
to death and destruction.
Quieting Troubled Spirit.
Then at the call of the emergency
came the man of the hour to answer
it. Alone- he went to the lake, and
with the sole weapons of a scholar's
knowledge and magic battled with the
spirit until it signified an agreement to
remain at peace if only it might have
one day of freedom during the year.
The storms ceased, but long after
ward whoever went fo Pilate's lake on
a Good Friday saw an awful specter
clothed in a red toga upon a rock above
the water, "the grim, ghostly figure of
him who saw no ill yet permitted it."

Opinion as to where they really come
from. A rabbit is not a hare, although
they are cousins. There is one marked
difference between them. The baby
rabbit, as all know who keep these lit
tle animals as pets, comes into the
world blind and helpless, while the
baby hare has its eyes open from the
beginning, and is soon able to take
care of itself. It has been believed
that the bare never closes its eyes,
and that is one reason why it is chosen
as the symbol of the moon, which al
ways has its eyes open and sees every.
thing that goes on at night.

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 genealily to great advantage, Iut
as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at the
proper time, the California Fig 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 \Vell-Informetd,lecause
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 has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs-and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure 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-Syrup 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
