THE EXCELLENCE OF SYRUP OF FIGS
is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fio Sstrup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the California Fio Syrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the Cali
fornia Fio Stkup Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which tho genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the Dame of

and overthrow the monarchy. Castelar
Is now 00 years old. He inherited his

lived in England an exile under sent

tiled destitute in 1830. The son was
given a flue education and was for a
time professor of philosophy In the
University of Cadiz, the town of his
birth and heart. He lost his place
when he founded the newspaper La
Democracia of Madrid. His conduct
with this paper earned him the sent'

II. was dethroned he returned to Spain

It is offered at cheap rates, and is far
preferable in the Egyptian climate to

which has been granted a concession to

on the government railway are at pres

other installations are proposed. The
gas company mentioned has contracted
to light all Cairo by eleotricity in lieu

The Man Who Did It Famed Chiefly
for Hia Integrity.
Irving M. Scott, the man who built
the battle ship Oregon, is the head of
the Union Iron Works, San Francisco.
He is a native of Hebron Mills, Balti
more County, Md., and is CI years old.
His father was a Pennsylvania Quaker
clergyman ami his mother was a de
vout Quakeress two facts which ac
count for the soundness of the Oregon's
boilers and her trustworthiness aa a
ship. Young Scott was educated at a
public school in Baltimore and at Mil
ton Academy. In 1854 he began the
study of mechanical engineering, and
In 1858 he went to San Francisco to be
a draftsman for the Union Iron Works,
then the property of Col. Peter Dono

Poor digestion often causes irregular
ity of the heart's action. This irregu

heart disease. The symptoms are muoh
the same. There is however a vast
difference between the two: organic
heart disease is often incurable; ap
parent heart disease is curable if good
digestion be restored.
A case in point is quoted from the
New Era, of Greensburg, Ind. Mrs.
Ellen Colsom, Isewpoint, lnd., a
woman 43 years old, had suffered for
four years with distressing stomaoh
trouble. The eases generated by tiie
indigestion nressed on the heart, and
caused an irregularity of its action
She had much pain in her Btomaoh and
heart, and was subject to frequent and
severe choking spells which were most
severe at night. Doctors were tried in
vain; the patient became worse, de
