Williams'Pink Pills Restored Mr®.
Robblns To Health and Also Cured
Her Daughter of Anaemia.
Mrs. Jocie Robbins, of 1121 Clar
Bt., Decatur, 111., says: "I was weak,
thin and troubled with headaches. My
appetite failed so that I did not rel
ish my food. I was unable to do my
work because my limbs pained me
so'and my feet were swollen. I got
numb and dizzy, my tongue seemed at
times to be paralyzed so that I
louldn't speak distinctly. My extrem
ities, when in this numb state, felt as
If some one was sticking needles into
me all over their surface. Through
ray shoulders at times I had such pain
that I couldn't sleep. Many times I
awoke with a smothering sensation.
"When the physician's remedies
failed to benefit me I began to look
for something that would. My sister,
Mrs. McDaniel, of Decatur, recom
mended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to
me and I at once purchased some. I
was greatly encouraged when I saw
how they acted on my nervous condi
tion and continued using them until
cured. I am now able to attend to my
duties and have not consulted a phys
ician since.
"I also gave them to my daughter
who had always been weak and who
at this time seemed to lack vitality.
Her cheeks were colorless and she
was thin and spiritless. She had an
aemia and we feared consumption, be
cause every time she went out doors
if it was at all cold or damp she
would take cold and cough. But Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills brought color
back to her cheeks and strength to
her body."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by
all druggists, or sent postpaid, on re
ceipt of price, 50 cents per box, six
boxes for $2.50, by the Dr. Williams

The fthole affair originated in the
appointment verbally by the marshall
of Smith as dog catcher. He did his
duty so well that in one day he
brought in eight canines that bit the
dust at the crack of the marshal's
rifle. In one instance he caught a dog
on which the license had been paid,
and while this one was not killed it
engendered bad blood.
There is a feeling among those who
have lost dogs to run the negroes out
of town at any cost. Then there is a
large element who want them to re
main and to give the job of dog
catcher permanently to them, as there
seems to be little diminution in the
number of dogs.

A charter has been granted to the

a right of way for several miles along
the creek. The company is ready to
begin work at once, and will put up

three thousand horse power, accord

mand for electric power by the manu

of Rapid Creek is fifty feet to the
mile, although there are place* for a
distance of several thousand feet
where the fall is from one hundred

honest. Mr. Webber replied that the
tax amounted to $9.33, with interest
of $17.91. The treasurer suggested
that if he would pay the tax he be

The Value and Importance of Ethical Remedies.
Remedies which physicians sanction for family use, as they act most beneficially and
arc gentle yet prompt in effect, and called ethical, because they are of
Known Excellence and Quality and oi Known Component Parts.
To gain the full confidence of the Well-informed of the world and the approval of
the most eminent physicians, it is essential that the component parts be known to and
approved by them, and, therefore, the California Fig Syiup Company has published for many
years past in its advertisements and upon every, package a full statement thereof. The per
fect purity and uniformity of product which-they demand in a-laxative reinedy.of, an, etkical
character are assured by the California Fig Syrup Company's original method of manufacture,
known to the Company only.
There are other ethical remedies approved by physicians, but the product of
the California Fig Syrup Company possesses the advantage over all other family laxatives
that it cleanses, sweetens and relieves the internal organs on which it acts, without
disturbing the natural functions or any debilitating after effects and without having to
increase the quantity from time to time.
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 doubtlessly 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 Company, 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
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C., the remedy is not adulterated or mis
branded within the meaning of the Food and Drugs Act, June 30th, 1906.
