THE EXCELLENCE OF SYSDP 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 Fiq Svbup
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 Cat-ifoknta Fio 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 Fiq Sykup 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 ia 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

Visitors to the water front today were
persuaded that winter had come, and
from reports has come to stay. Not be

a sight, wh'ch though causing a cessation
of traffic and much annoyance to steam
boat men, is beautiful: to look upon.
Floating down the river are huge blocks
of ice, which have completely blccked
the stream at Crate's Point and on down,
and along its edge the ice is an inch and
a 1 a'f thick.
This morning the employes at the D.
P. & A. N. dock were busily engaged in
breaking the ire and removing freight
from the wharf boat, preparatory to tak
ing that, with the Dalles City hull and
the Regulator, up to Hungry Harbor,
about a half mileabov9 the city, a9 great
damage would result were they to re
main in their present position, the ice
jam being strongest at that point.
Later the hull was successfully moved,
and the Regulator was taken for a short
distance by attaching horses to ber, and
she is now waiting a little above .the
foot of Washington street until the wind
changes, when the ferry boat will tow
her to her winter destination. The
K'ickitat will also follow suit and be
t erl up to await developments.
Saturday about "12:30 the Inland

she has taken up winter quarters. We
are informed that the-freight for this
