THE EXCELLENCE OF SYRUP CF 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 Fig Svbtjp
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 Fia Syrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will "
assist one in avoiding' the worthless
imitations manufactured by other pa
ties. The high standing of the Cali
fornia Fio Syktjp Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the 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 name of

Odd Bits of Information Which May
II e Found of Value to
Cherry vinegar is highly esteemed
by many.bon vivants, and now is the
time to make it. Pour over two quarts
of sour cherries, lightly mashed, one
quart of good cider or white-wine vine
gar. Put in an earthen bowl and set in
a cool place for two days. Then strain
through a musiin bag, and to each pint
of liquid add three-quarters of a
pound of sugar aDd let it boil 15 min
utes. Then strain, set . aside to cool
and bottle. A little of this added to a
glass half filled with cracked ice makes
a coding summer beverage.
Among the pretty curtains for door
ways in the summer are the Indian cot
ton prints in wool effects. These have
palm-leaf patterns, and at a little dis
tance take on the appearance of a fine
cashmere shawl. A cotton curtain of
some sort should always accompany
the voyageur or the guest at the sum
mer hotel. With a light portiere hung
over the doorway, the door may be left
open to get the benefit of all the air
.that is Etirring.
Currant ice made of the fresh fruit
"is a beautiful color, and is frequently
more acceptable than the creams. To
prepare it, soak a tablespoonful "of
.gelatin half an hour in enough cold
water to cover it. Pour over it a half
piat of granulated sugar, one of cur
rant juice, one of cold water and the
juice of one lemon. Freeze and pack.
In case of sunstroke, when the face
is red and the head and body hot and
dry, remove the clothing at once,
bathe the body, face' and head in ice
water and lay ice in towels on head and
neck, or remove to a private place,
strip, lay on wire mattress and sprin
kle with ice water from a watering
Cheese sandwiches are excellent to
serve with the salad course at dinner
or appetizing for the picnic basket.
Grate v.r.y cheese that is not too dry.
rub it to a paste with butter, spread
the bread, dust with salt and paprika
and cut into strips.
An old Catskill preserve is made of
plums and maple sugar. Melt the
maple sugar in a little water and cook
with the plums, allowing pound for
pound. This gives a tart sweetness
especially agreeable to many palates.
An excellent and simple remedy for
a siprtin is said to be found by mixing
the well-beaten whites of six eggs with
a half cupful of table salt. Spread be
tween thin muslin cloths and bind over
the sprain. Washington Star.
The Soldier Boy at Home.
When the soldier boy, still in camp,
came home on a two-days' furlough
his blithe sister scared up a tin plate
somewhere, which she set at his place
at the table with a tin cup beside it.
She wanted to have it look natural,
she said. And thej soldier boy laughed,
and said the plate' was all right, but he
didn't want to drink out of a tin cup.
The basis of this feeling could not even
be guessed by. the boy's father, who
had himself in other days carried a tin
cup tied to a haversack; but he didn't
ask about it,' nor did anybody else.
They gave the boy a china cup, as
they would have given him anything
else they had for the mere asking.
And before the food was brought the
blithe sister removed the tin plate
and substituted for it the best china
plate that the house contained. And
then they fed him on the fatted calf.
They'll bring out all the crockery and
kill the whole menagerie when the boy
comes home. 3T. Y. Sun.
GO SLOW ON WIDOWS.
That Waa the Piece of Good Advice
One of Them Gave a Smart
A score of us were sitting in the
shade of the depot building waiting for
the train, which was an hour late,
when a yoke of oxen attached to a
queer-looking cart turned the porner.
They were driven by a woman about 50
years of age, who was. baref opt and
wore a man's straw hat.
' "Git up thar', Buck!" she exclaimed,
as she laid the "gad" on the off dx with
a resounding whack. "You, thar',
Peter, what you skittishun 'round that
way fur? Whoa, "now! Both of yous
She turned them up to the platform,
threw down some hay taken from the
cart, and came up among ps to inquire
of the depot agent about a barrel cf
salt. He was busy then and she was
waiting around, when the saSart Alick
of the crowd, who was traveling for a
wine house, remarked in tones -meant
for her to overhear::
"I have always said if ! married at
all, I'd marry a woman who could drive
oxen." , -
"Is that meant for me?" she asked,
as she walked straight up to him.
"Are you a widow, ma'am?"
"I am. Bin a widder ever since a
sawlog rolled over Jim nine years
"And you'd marry again if you had
the opportunity, would you?"
"I would. When Jim lay a-dyin' in
the house he told me to marry agin ii
I had a show." y
"Ahem! I see Could you love a sec
"I -could. It runs in our family to
love. We begin airly and keep it up to
the grave. What's your proposition?
I'm a plain woman, full o bizness, and
never do any foolin'. If you've got
anything to say, spit it right out afore
"I I don't want to marry just now,"
"Don't eh? Then what's the use of
gettin' me on my tiptoes about it:
You man, you jest the same as asked
me to have you, and I jest the same as
"O! No, no! I merely made some in
quiries!" he replied.
"Them inquiries was about love, sir.
and my heart's a-thumping away like
all git out ! I said I'd marry again, and
I will. We are engaged. When do you
want me to be ready?"
"Madam, you have totally misunder
stood me," explained the young man,
as he turned all 6orts. of colors and ap
peared to grow small. "I asked you a
few questions out of curiosity."
"Mebbe the jury will call it curiosity,
and mebbe they won't," she said, as
she set her jaw.
"They don't allow no foolin 'round
in Posey county. When a feller goes
as fur as you hev it's a hitch or dam
ages. I'm a-tremblin all over like a
girl, an' my heart's a-tryin to jump
out. It's regular love or I don't know
the road hum. You don't leave here,
young man, till this case is settled."
"But, ma'am you see "
"I don't know nuthin' but marriage
or damages. You've asked me to have
you. I said I would. Will you marry
"How how much?" he gasped, as he
looked around and failed to find any
"Wall, Saginaw salt is a dollar and a
quarter a bar'I," she replied, as she
glanced at a row of barrels down the
tlatform. "I guess the oxen kin git
hum with two bar'ls. Make it two
and I'll call it squar."
Everybody grinned except the young
man. He realized that he was done
for, and got out of the box by plank
ing down the $2.50 to the agent. The
cart was driven around to the spot,
the barrels loaded up, and then the
woman came back to the young man:
"I've settled this case, and the salt
i in the cart, and I jest "want to re
mark that if you happen this way agin
and you happen to feel so awfully cun
nin' that you can't hold yourself, you'd
better go slow on widders. Thar's 16
of us 'round here, an' we all drive yel
ler oxen hitched to carts, an' we all
go b'arfoot in the summer and sigh to
get married agin. The reg'lar figger is
three bar'ls of salt and a pound of tea,
but, owing to your youth and that
thunderstorm comia up, I've- let you
off easy. Gcod-day, bub; good-day
