A NEW SEMAPHORE BEGUN
Burlington Tracks at Colona May Not
Work has been begun on the new
semaphore at Colona and the people
of that place have taken it as an omen
meaning that the Burlington has de
cided not to remove their tracks. Ever
since the semaphore was wrecked sev
eral months ago it has been the cur
rent r?port that a new one was not
to be erected at the Rock Island and
Burlington crossing because the loca
tion of the crossing was to be chang
ed. Much surveying was done by the
Burlington, but the fact is now appar
ent that the crossing is to remain at
the same old place for a time longer
at least. The new semaphore is be
ing built on the south side of the track.

If more than ordinary skill in playing brings the honors of the
game to the winning player, so exceptional merit in a remedy
ensures the commendation of the well informed, and as a rea
sonable amount of outdoor life and recreation is conducive to
the health and ctrength, so does a perfect laxative tend to one's
improvement in cases of constipation, biliousness, headaches,
etc. It is all important, however, in selecting a laxative, to
choose one of known quality and excellence, like the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup Co., a laxative which sweetens and cleanses the system
effectually, when a laxative is needed, without any unpleasant
after effects, as it acts naturally and gently on the internal
organs, simply assisting nature when nature needs assistance,
without griping, irritating or debilitating the internal organs in
any way, as it contains nothing of an objectionable or injurious
nature. As the plants which are combined with the figs in
the manufacture of Syrup of Figs are known to physicians to
act most beneficially upon the system, the remedy has met
with their general approval as a family laxative, a fact well
worth considering in making purchases.
It is because of the fact that SYRUP OF FIGS
is a remedy of known quality and excellence, and approved by
physicians that has led to its use by so many millions of well
informed people, who would not use any remedy of uncertain
quality or inferior reputation. Every family should have a
bottle of the genuine on hand at all times, to use when a
laxative remedy is required. Please to remember that the
genuine Syrup of Figs is for sale in bottles of one size
only, by all reputable druggists, and that full name of the
company uantornia big byrup Uo., is plainly printed on
the front of every package. Regular price, 50c per bottle.
