Organized effort Is now being made
throughout the United Stated to fight
consumption. A warning Is given
against Intemnerato habits, which in

contracted from dried sputum.
Colds should not bo neglected, as
they leavo the lungs in a peculiarly

many rank imitations of Virgin Oil of
Pino (Pure), which are put out under
various names, such as Concentrated

invariably produce nausea and never

the bird must be taken before it leaves
the nest, If possible, or, If it has left
the nest, before it gets to where it
can di ink water; for, ho asserted, If
It has of Itself taken water, it, loses
all vlrtuo as a blood-cure. Tho pro

to kill tho crow and, without cleaning
It, to encaso tho body In an air-tight
covering of cement or clay. Tho
mould is then baked for two or thre
days In a hot flio When tho clay
crust Is removed, naturally tho crow

pure charcoal. This Is pulverized and
converted Into pills of tho "pink" or

blood legulator. He reminded his in
terlocutors that the medicine was very
rare because of tho difficulty of find

Paved with Good Intentions.
A diplomat was talking in Washing
ton about the late Auberon Herbert,
son of tho earl of Carnarvon.
"Ho was connected with tho British
embassy here," said the diplomat, "but
after he turned Utopian he would
have naught to do with diplomacy.
Why, he once addiessed a crowd in
New York like this;
" 'The mad, blind struggle for the
dollar, with no thought for tho higher
life, is ruinlne vour country. The
hearts of your men are like tho rocks
that under'ine your great city. It Is
a great city of hard hearts.'
"Mr. Herbert was always original.
I once heard him address a New
Year's banquet of clergymen. 'I'll try
and repeat the address in his own
wouls. It ran:
" 'Meeting this morning the gentlo
man called Mephlsto or Beezlehub, I
giected him politely and said:
" 'How aro things down your way?'
"Ho grinned and shook his head.
He pointed to the mud on his hoof and
" 'We are in a deuce of a mess down
there,' ho said. 'This is the season,
vou know, when our pavements are
being laid.' "

will say on occasion, "she's squunched

you want 'em for looks."
But there are othor times when Mr.
Hicks shakes his head at tho hopeful

"Bettor plan to stay nigh shelter to

Thinks Little of Chinese Army.
Dr. Morrison, the well-known corre
spondent of the London Tlnies at Pe
king, went to see the recent maneu
vers of tho modernized Chinese army
in the neighborhood of Chang-te-fu.
He describes them a3 a repetition of
the performance of 190.") a set piece
carefully prepared long beforehand by
a number of Japanese advisers. Tho
inefficiency of the officers is still con
spicuous and tho field training of tho
men inadequate, but tho material is

the contending armies would hare
been little better than a lahble.

The Well Informed of the World.
A vast fund of personal knowledge is really essential to the achievement of die
highest excellence in any field of human effort.
A Knowledge of Forms, Knowledge of Functions and Knowl
edge of Products are nil of the utmost value and in questions of life and health
when a true and wholesome remedy is desired it should be remembered that Syrup
of Figs and Elixir of Senna, manufactured by ihc California Fig Syrup Co., is an
ethical product which has met with the approval of the most eminent physicians and
Known Quality, Known Excellence and Known Component M
Parts and has won the valuable patronage of millions of the Well Informed of the JfM
world, who know of their own personal knowledge and from actual use lhat it is the fust
and best of family laxatives, for which no extravagant or unreasonable claims are made. JM
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 family laxative. As itspure
laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well known lo physicians
and the Well Informed of the world to be the best we have
adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and
Elixir or benna as more lully descriptive ot 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
