In all the seasons of their lives, as maidens, wlves.or moth
ers, that the one sim.le. wholesome remedy which acts
gently and pleasantly and naturally, and which may be
used with truly beneficial effects, under any conditions
when the system needs a laxative, is-Syrup of Figs. It
Is well known to be a simple combination of the laxative
and carminative principles of plants with pleasant, aro
matic liquids, which are agreeable and refreshing to the
taste and acceptable to the system when Its gentle
cleansing is desired.
Many of the ills from which women suffer are jf a tran
sient nature and do not come from any organic trouble
and it Is pleasant to know that they yield so promptly to
the beneficial effects of Syrup of Figs, but when anything
more than a laxative is needed It Is best to consult the
family physician and to avoid the old-time cathartics and
loudly advertised nostrums of the present day. When
one needs only to remove the strain, the torpor, the con
gestion, or similar Ills, which attend upon a constipated
condition of the system, use the true and gentle remedy
Syruo of Figs and enjoy freedom from the depression,
the a"ches and pains, colds and headaches, which are due
to Inactivity of the bowels.
Only those who buy the genuine Syrup of Figs can hope
to get Its beneficial effects and as a guarantee of the ex

for, is always resented by a transfer of patronage to
some first-class drug establishment, where they do'

reliable druggists everywhere at 50 cents per bottle.

CONSTANT DEVELOPMENT AND
A crew of men have been constantly nt work ever
since we acquired this proportv and the Glasgow crosscut
Las now encountered and fully crosscut tbo ledge. In this
ciosscut wo havo opened up a body of oro sixteen feet in
width carrying good commercial values.
In speaking of commercial values we mean ores
wMch have a sufficient value to pay for the extraction
nulling and all other incidental expenses thereto, with
enough of a margin left over to pay good dividends to the
This largo body of ore was not in the nature of a
surprise, we simply expected it, as the surface develop
inf nts showed this same large body of ore, and there was
no reason why it should not be encountered in this cross
cut and at this depth.
We are now turning to drift on the ledge to the west
from the crosscut in order that wo may open up the richer
ties at a greater depth which are found on the surface
throughout the Bannoekburn claim.
This lino of development, wo believe, will prove verv
interesting to all who tin.- interested, or may become ntrr
cttod in the Highland mine, ns it will certainly open up
ore bodies rich in quality and in large quantities.
It will demonstrate that the Ilighlaud will rank us one
nf the largest producers in the district.
From now on the development work will In- com
paratively easy and not very expensive, as we will be
drifting along the ledge where the ground is much rasier
to work than in tho country rock which encases the vein.
Every month will show a lurpe increase in our ore reserve.?.
FREE TRIP TO THE HIGHLAND
To any one who wishes to invent a reasonable sum of
money in the Highland mine, we will puy all traveling

We would lo only too glad to have each and every
one who contemplates the investment of money in mines,
c mo out and look over this property and the district in
