co City, Nlceforo Zambrano, the new
Mexican consul general at San Fran
cisco, is seeking to build up friendly
trade relations between the two- coun
tries. Senor Zambrano proposes to have
monthly trade bulletins sint from all
the large Mexican cities enumerating
tne products for-export, with their
prices as far as possible and other de
sirable information. In addition the
bulletins will state what goods the
Mexican merchants are in need of and
the desired methods of shipment.
Supplementing this will be he exhi
bition of Mexican agricultural and
manufactured products maintained
here by Lazaro Basch. commercial
agent of the Mexican government. The
consul general expects to earn- on hi
work in cooperation with h s..

well to have a mild, gentle-acting
laxative like Dr. Caldwell's Syrup

nation of simple laxative herbs
with pepsin which does all that is
required in constipation and does
it with safety and comfort. It is
free from narcotics and may be
given to babies. Half a nu'llion
mothers have it in as many good

In jpite of the fact that Dr. Cali

being over 6 million bottles sold each
