TDE EXCELLENCE OF SVBUP 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. Fia Sybup
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 Fie Strup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding' the worthless
imitations manufactured by other pat
ties. The high standing' of the Cali
Fornia Fra Stkup Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Fig's 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 irritating1 or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of
CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP CO.

Hill to Legalize Marriages Contracted
Six Months After Divorce. '
Stillman baa a bill, before the house
to legalize a certain class of marriage
that are rendered invalid by the present
law. These are marriages contracted
within six months after the divorce of
one of the parties. Notwithstanding
the law does not permit such marriagee,
a considerable number of them have
been contracted, for the most part
through ignorance of the statute, and
the issue of such marriages ia without
power to inherit property, and in every
way illegitimate in the eye of the law.
'.Attorneys often obtain decrees of di
vorce but do not enter them of record
until the court fees are paid, knowing
that the divorces are incomplete and
holding the matter open in order to
Jorce payment of the fees. The divorced
person may wait six months after the
granting of the decree, and then sup
posing the law to be fulfilled, marry
again. But the law requires the six
months to intervene between the enter
ing of the decree and the marriage, and
those who reckon from the granting of
the decree instead of from the entering
of it in the records, make the mistake
of contracting an illegal marriage. To
cure the defects of these marriaere9 ia
the object of Stilltnan's bill, which is to
vaiiilate those contracted on decrees
entered up to. last August.

Five Boys Drowned.
Sceanton, Pa., Jan. 17. Five small
boys were drowned today at South Gib
son, a country hamlet near Foster, Sus
quehanna county. After the morning
school eession six boys got a big sled and
coasted from the roadway down a short,
steep hill, at the foot of which is a mill
pond. A thaw had weakened the ice,
and it broke under the weight of the
sled. The sled and all but one of the
boys shot under the ice several rods. In
his excitement the lad who eecaped lost
valuable time by running back to the
school to give the alarm, instead of no
tifying residents near at hand. Four
bodies have been recovered.
Deafness Cannot be Cared
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafnes?
and that is by constitutional remed ies
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it Is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
oat and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever ; nine cases out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars ; free.

New "York, Jan. .18. A dispatch in
the Herald from Havana says : An out

dred and Sixty-first Indiana regiment,
owing to the spread of emallpox. Men
and officials are using every influence to
bring about the regiment's recall. In
the meantime all who can secure sick
leave are going home. Jacob Dexter, of
Monticello, InJ., has died of Emallpox.
There are five other cases and several
suspects, all in the same regiment.
La Grippe Successfully Treated.
"I have just recovered from the sec
ond attack of La Grippe this year," says
Mr. Jas. A. Jones, publisher of the
Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter
case I used Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy, and I think with considerable euc
cese, only being in bed a little over two
days against ten days for the former at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this remedy as 1
bad to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, whiie in the first
case I was able to attend to business
about two days before getting 'down.' "

A Druggist's Serious Mistake.
Colfax, Wash., Jan. 17. Last night
Mrs. George Mansfield sent her little boy
to the Farmers' drug 6tore to buy some
Epsom salts. He returned witha pack
age of medicine, and the woman took a
dose. Very soon she was in a serious
condition, and the physician summoned
recognized symptona of poisoning. For
several hours her life was despaired of,
but finally she was declared out of
danger. Anaylsis of the drug sold
showed that carbonate of potash had
been given instead of Epsom salts. The
drug was sold by Mrs. J. J. Heoppner.
Bow to Prevent Pneumonia.
You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. During the
epidemic of La Grippe a few years ago
when so many cases resulted, in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was'used.
It counteracts anv tendency of a cold or
La Grippa to result in that dangerous
disease. It is the best remedy in the
world for bad colds and La Grippe.
Every bottle warranted. .For sale by

In Olden Times
People overlooked the importance of
permanently beneficial effects and were
satisfied with the transient action ; but
now that it is generally known that
Syrup of Figs will permanently over
come habitual constipation, well in
formed people will not buy other, laxa
tives, which act for a time.'but finally
injure the system. Buy the genuine,
made by the California Fig Syrup Co.
DeWitt's Little Early. Risers,
The famous little pill.
These queer people called Quakers or
the silent worshippers of the Almighty
God, have from century to century re
tained their religious reputation free
from all blemishes, by their daily
practice of honesty, integrity and social
purity. History teaches us that in
oldeu times these good. people were ter
ribly persecuted for their religious be
lief. But through all the punishment
bestowed on them they proved to be
the happiest and most contented class of
people on God'a green foot-stool. Absti
nence, chastity, peace.fgood will and
brotherly love is the foundation Btone of
their laith, their motto being peace and
good will toward all men.
A staff of Quaker doctors ara now in
The Dalles, giving lectures and enter
tainments at Baldwin's opera bouse
nightly. Admission 15 cents to all.
The doctors can be seen daily at their

The farce comedy surprise, Blaney's
big musical -. extravagance, "A Boy
Wanted," comprises some of the best
specialty artists in the protession. Any
one of them would make a "top liner"
for the vaudeville show in America. Be
sides playing the parts assigned them in
the comedy, they do individual specialty
acts, actually giving in this attraction
two shows in one-farce comedy and
vaudeville. Mr. Blaney personally di
rects rehearsals previous to the opening
of the season, and any act, pun, feature
or song introduced bv them during re
hearsals, must be right up to the minute
and in keeping with bis comedy. He is
very strict on this point and will not al
low one moment to lag from the rise of
the curtain to the finish of the perform
ance. As they say in stage vernacular
he inserts plenty of "ginger." "A Boy
Wanted" will be seen at the Vogt Satur
