With a better understanding of tlie
truuHient nuture of the many phys
ical ilia, which vuninh before proper ef
forts gentle efforts plouKiinteft'orts
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, Unit bo many forms of
bieknesc are not due to any actual dis
ease, but bimply to a const ipu ted condi
tion of the B;stem, which the pleasant
family laxative, ISyrupof Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millioiiHof fumilics, and is
everywhere esteemed bo highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
' effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
. chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
till reputable druggists.
.-. If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
Jlud and gives most general satisfaction.

EMPEROR OF ELBA,
How Napoleon Cond acted Tllmaelf
Elba wns an Island dlrlded agalniit
Itself, there bolus; botb Imperialist" and
royalists among Its Inhabitants, and a
t'onsldernble party wblcb desired Inde
pendence. By repreKentlng that Na
poleon had brought with him fabulous
Hums the Austrian and English com
missioners eiiHily won the Elbant to a
fervor of loyalty for their new emperor.
Before nightfall of The' 4th the court
was established, and the new adminis
tration began Its labors. Having mas
tered the resources and needs of his
pigmy realm, the Emperor began to de
ploy all bis powers, mending the high-,
wnys, fortifying the strategic points,
and creating about the nucleus of four
hundred guards which were seut from
Fontalnebleau an efficient little army
of sixteen hundred men. Ills expenses
were regulated to the minutest detail
bothatbomeand abroad; the salt works
and Irop mines, which were the bul
warks of Elban prosperity, began at
once to Increase their output, and taxa
tion was regulated with scrupulous
nicety. By that stiperemlnent virtue of
the French burgher, good management,
the Island was made almost lndepem.
ent of the remnants of the Tullerlt-s
treasure (about five million francs,
which Napoleon had brought from
France. , The same powers which had
swayed a world operated with equal
success In a sphere almost microscopic
Before long the Princess Borghese,
separated soon after her marriage from
her second husband, and banished
since 1810 from Paris for impertlueut
conduct to the Empress, came, accord
ing to promise, to be ber brother's com
panion, and Madame Mere, though dis
tant In prosperity, came likewise to
soothe her son in adversity. The in
tercepted letters of the former prove
her to have been at least as loose In her
life at Elba as ever before, but tbey do
not afford a sufficient basis for the
srandals concerning her relations with
Nnpoclon which were founded upon
them, and Industriously circulated at
the court of Louis XVIII. The shame
ful charge has no adequate foundation
of any sort.
Napoleon's econmomlcs were render
ed not merely expedient, but Impera
tive, by the fact that none of the mou
eys from France were forthcomin
which had been promised In bis treat.,
with the powers. After a short stay
Koller frankly stated that In his opin
ion they would never be paid, and de
parted. The Island swarmed with
Bourbon spies, and the only conversa
tion In which Napoleon could Indulge
himself unguardedly was with Sir Neil
Campbell, the English representative,
or with the titled English gentlemen
who gratified their curiosity by visiting
him. During the summer beats when
the court was encamped on the heights
at Marclana for refreshment, there ap
peared a mysterious lady with her
child. Botb were well received and
kindly treated, but they withdrew
themselves entirely from the .publl'
gaze. Common rumor said It was the
Empress; but this was not true; It was
the Coun'tess Walewska, with the son
she had borne to her host, whom she
still adored. They remained but a few
days, and departed as mysteriously as
they had come.
Base females thronged the precincts
of the Imperial residence, openly strug
gling for Napoleon's favor as they had
eo far never dared to do; success too
frequently attended their efforts. But
the one woman who should have been
at his side was absent. It Is certain
that she made an honest effort to come,
and apartments were prepared for her
reception In the little palace at Porto
Ferrajo. Her father, however, thwart
ed her at every turn, and finally she
was a virtual prisoner at Schonbrunn.
So manifest was the restraint that her j
grandmother, Caroline, Queen of the
Two Sicilies, cried out In Indignation,
"If I were In the place of Maria Louisa
I would tie the sheets of my bed to the
window frame and flee." Committed
to the charge of the elegant and subtle
Nelpperg.a favorite chamberlain whom
she had first seen at Dresden, he piled
her with such insidious wiles that at
last her slender moral fiber was entire
ly broken down and she fell a victim
to bis charms. As late aa August Napol
fion received impassioned letters from
her; then she' grew formal and cold; at
laat, under Metternlcb's urgency, she
ceased to write at all. Her French at
tendant, Meneval, managed to convey
the whole sad story to ber husband,
but the Emepror was Incredulous, and
hoped against hope until December.
Then only be ceased from bis Incessant
and urgent anneals. Tpn"ry.

not surprised at that. I hardly know
myself, snd yet here I am fall of life
and vigor. Look at my arms, round,
strong and healthy. The color of my
cheeks show life and animation."
Ho spoke Mrs. Hadix, wife of Rev.
E. Hadix, of. I'lacerville, California,
and "what has produoed this wonder
ful change fromalomst death to health
ful, aotive life?"
"Well, I will tell you it was Pink
Pills for Para People. Yon will remem
ber that for years I walked the streets
a living skeleton emaciated weak,
and a oomplete wreck. My flesh oolor
less, my nerves unstrung. I bad no
blood. If my flesh was pnnotured, a
thin pink stain was all that oonld be
produced. My physioians said there
was no hope for me. My friends de
spaired of my reoovery. I was sent to
Baoramento, where three of the most
eminent physicians diagnosed my case,
bat they shook their beads and said
they could not help me, and they re
fused to take my money as they oonld
do me no good.
"My husband was sent for to say the
' last good-bye. When I lay on my
. oonoh to rest I felt as though 1 waa
sinking, down, down, down. . I oould
not sleep, neither oonld I rest. When
, all hope from physioians was gone, I
, determined to try what virtue there
was in Pink Pills for Pale People. I
I commenced taking them and soon be
gan to improve. I oontinned their ose
! with the result that to-day I am fully
! recovered to health and happinoaa, and
this in loss than six mouths from the
time I commenced their use. All hail

J. C. Stephens, another resident of
' Placerville, said: "I was afllicted
with rheumatism for more than twenty
! years, and only .with the greatest diffl
! onlty was I able to walk to my place
! of bnsiuess, my bands were so stiff and
' swollen tbat I could scarcely bold any
: thing in them. When driving my
team, oould not bold my whip. I
I saw in the San Franaisoo Call tbat a
1 friend of mine had been onred of rheu
: matism by nsing Pink Pills. I oom
j menoed nsing them with the result
that I am completely onred."
Mrs. J. G. Bailey was afflioted for a
long time with kidney trouble and
! oonld not rest nights. She said: "I
had heard so much about the wonders
tbat Pink Pills performed that I con
cluded to try them. I commenced
taking them, and found immediate re
lief, sleep nioely, and in every way
am greatly improved."
W. F. Fairohild is a drugigst doing
business in Placerville. - He says be
has been selling Pink Pills for Pale
People for several years, and that bis
onstomers speak very highly of them,
and sales have been more than doubled
within the last six months, especially
since the wonderful reoovery of Mrs.
Hadix, whose case waaoonsidered hope

Pink Pills was .considered almost a

a better opportunity of experiencing
the benefits of tbe excellent new street
pavements that I have recently referred
to in this correspondence. Heretofore,
walking in the business oenter of this

I might say, almost perilous; certainly
it was experimental, for no man could
tell when he put bis foot down in tbe
sloughs between the rows of buildings,
whether he would rest bis sole on a
stamp or in tbe bottom of a sunken

comfort and give impetus to trade at
