: the knowledge, that bo many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed bo highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
V one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore

CAPT. BENSON'S STATEMENT
A REMARKABLE AND INTEREST
i ING CAREER.
A Member of the First Kentucky Bat-
tery Who Was In Twenty-Seven Hard
From the Capital-Journal, Salem, Oregon.
Salem, Or., can boast of no better
known private citizen than Captain
William Benson. To the old resi
dents, as well as to the sohool children,
his figure is as familiar as that of Mt
Hood or the state capital.
Captain Benson, of the First Ken
tucky battery, detaohed from the 113th
Illinois infantry, is now seventy-four
years old, and has taken part in twenty-seven
hard-fought battles, besides a
great many interesting skirmishes.
He ia pensioned for injury in the
breast, from oonoussion of a shell, and
for a wound in the right shoulder,
caused by leaping from a car while be
ing taken as a prisoner from Anderson
ville to Pine Forest. For the past twen
ty years he has suffered almost con
tinually from malaria and shortness of
breath, and has been afflioted with rheu
matism in the, legs and shoulders to
anon an extent that he had not seen a
well day in all that time. He was
also afflioted with constipation and
piles. , Eighteen years ago Mr. Benson
removed from Illinois to Oregon, on
aooount of his failing health, and since
the olose .of the war has not been able
to support himself by manual labor,
and has had almost constant medical
attendance by physioians of all the dif
ferent schools of praotioe. To aee him
now, tipping the soales at 310 pounds,
enjoying regular ' health, his cheeks
mantled with a fresh, rosy complex
ion, walking off proud and erect, with
a fresh, firm, vigorous step for a man in
his seventy-fourth year, is enough to
make one believe in the possibility of
Ponce de Leon's fabled Fountain of
Captain Benson is not only a hero of
the Civil War, but a man . worth con
siderable property. He says he would
part willingly with his interest in all
his earthly possessions rather than be
plaoed back in the debilitated oondition
where he lingered for a score of years.
"I suppose," said he, laughing,
that what yon are after la , an adver
tisement for Pink Pills, but I want to
say that I am very glad to give yon
this testimonial, as I am convinced it
will relieve a great deal of suffering,
if it can become widely known. I am
firmly oonvinoed, after an experience
of over fifty years with both patent
medicines and physicians, that if every
family could keep these Pink Pills in
the house they would never need a
"I have paid out over f 1,000 for doc
toring with the best pyhsioians at
Salem, but not a cent for myself since
a year and a half ago. It waa then
that I first heard of Pink Pills. I got
the first box at a drug store, and had
not much oonfidenoe in them when I
began to take them. I took one box
before I got muoh benefit, but by the
middle of the seoond box the pain In
my breast began to disappear, and the
rheumatism in my - shoulder went
away. The shortness of breath was
alleviated, and I began to sleep like an
infant. For the first time in twenty
years I realized the luxury of sound
sleep, and my system began to recuperate
"By the end of the third box it had
taken away all my rheumatism and
stiffness in , the musoles and joints,
and I began to feel as nimble as a boy,
and oould do as good a day's work as
ever, but for my wounds. I enjoy the
best health I ever enjoyed in my life.

and my akin is as clean and fresh as a
baby's. . I had tried every remedy un
der the sun for piles, but without re
lief. At times they were near killing
me. Sciatica rheumatism had laid me
up in bed for months at a time. Fink
Pills have cured all these things, and 1
have not felt an indication of piles or
rheumatism for eight months. . People
who see me now can not believe that I
am the same man. My face looked
drawn, my eyes were bloodshot, my
skin was sourvied, and I oould not have
had a worse appearanoe if I had un
dergone starvation on an artio expedi
tion. I can now eat whatever I have
a relish for, and all I want of it, and it
don't hurt me. , . :
"I used to be constipated continu
ally, ' and I have taken wheelbarrow
loads of other pills, but never got per
fect relief until I tried Pink Pills.
I am now taking two pills a week,
and sometimes I go without them
for a month, and, as I said, I enjoy
continuous good health. I have got
rid of rheumatism and everything else.
Pink Pills perform wonders. They go
to work and fix up the kidneys and
baok and the whole system. Three
days after first taking them you feel the
effect all over. The worst trouble with
me was, I had got so 1 could not re
member anything. My mind was
clouded. A month after I began tak
ing Pink Pills I first began to notioe
my mind beoorae clear and aotive, and
my memory is perfectly restored,, a
happy obange from the feeling of stu
pidity I had suffered. This medicine
ha? fixed me up and made a new man
of me. It is only the other day that
Dr. Reynolds, Dean of the Salem
Medioal College, remarked to me that
I waa looking hale and hearty. I said
Tea, and no thanks to you doctors. It is
Pink Pills that have done it He poo
booed at it. , But I know what I am
talking about, and he, had to admit
what I said."

bride camo in preceded by a woman
musician all dressed in white satin.
She was supported by two bridesmaids.
Her gown was of white satin, but one
could scarcely see the material because
of the heavy gold embroidery. Her neck
and arms were simply covered with
diamonds, and on her head she wore a
high crown of precious stones, to which
was attached her veil of silk and gold.
Ou either side of her head were orna
ments of gold and jewels, with threads
of gold reaching to the ground, of such
weight that the bridesmaids had to car
ry them. She was one of the most beau
tiful women ever seen, and When she
was seated on the throne it was a pic

beautiful beyond description. When she
retired, the khediva stood on the throne
and threw newly coined money among
the ladies for luck. -

But when th? figure drew nearer they

Meet the Wrong Murphy.
, Francis Murphy, the temperance lec
turer, was a good story teller long be
fore he went on tlje lecture platform,
and during his latest visit in Chicago
told a story of his first lecture trip to
this city, which Is rather Interesting.
Murphy was a young man at the time
of the incident and when- It was an
nounced that he was to appear In Chi
cago a number of gentlemen interested
In temperance work concluded to do
all In their power to make him feel at
home. Accordingly, when the train
which bore the distinguished visitor
rolled into the station a committee of
five men was anxiously looking for the
lecturer, about whom they had beard
much, but whom none of the party had
ever seen. They had been waiting sev
eral minutes when a stout man, with a
dignified bearing, alighted from the
train. - ;
"That's he," exclaimed one of the
committee, excitedly, and the party
"Is this Mr. Murphy?" queried the
Mr. Murphy admitted the soft Im
peachment and In a twinkling was in
a carriage, with his numerous satchels
and telescopes stowed safely In front
"You must stay at my house," said
one of the party, "while you are here,"
and the invitation was repeated by
every man in the committee, but Mr.
Murphy said that he would go to a
hotel, and was driven to the Grand
Pacific, where he was shown to the
best room the house afforded. : On the
way to the hotel he was profuse In his
expression of delight over the hospita
ble manner in which , he had been re
ceived. ' -
"I was told," he said, "that I would
find that Chicago people were the most
warmhearted and hospitable in the
country, but I was totally unprepared
for such a reception as you have given
At the hotel Mr. Murphy insisted that
the -committee should accompany him
to his room, and when the party were
all seated he stepped to the bell and
when a boy answered his ring gave
nim an order 'in an undertone and then
returned to his seat.
Presently the boy rapped and when
Mr. Murphy yelled "Come In" he ap
peared with a quart bottle of cham
pagne and a box of cigars. No sooner
had the guests seen the contents of the
tray than one of them said: "",.
"Is It possible, Mr. Murphy, that you
cro going to drink that stuff?.,
"Well, I guess we can finish the bot
tle between us," answered Murphy. ,
"But are you not Francis Murphy,
the temperance lecturer?"
"Not on your life. I'm Joe Murphy,
the comedian." r: . ,
The committee retreated In great dis
order. "And all that time," adds Francis
Murphy, mournfully, "1 was carrying
two heavy grips to a second-class ho
tel and wondering where the commit
tee was which promised to meet me."

ton, Vt.: Gentlemen I take, muoh
pleasure in being able to add my mite
to the great mass of testimony in praise
of Paine's celery compound.
. In November last I found myself
muoh run down by overwork. For sev
eral weeks I had been obliged to work
eighteen hours daily out of the twenty
four, and was in consequence in a state
of physical and nervous exhaustion.
At the suggestion of a friend I com
menced the use of Paine's celery com
pound, with the result that my strength
has steadily improved, and I find my
self in far better health than I have
known for years.
I believe also that it has enabled me
to escape my periodical attaok of rheu
matism, as every season sinoe that time
with the advent of the cold, damp
weather, I have suffered severely from
that disease in a ohronio form. So far
this winter I have escaped without a
single twinge of : my old enemy. I
very cheerfully recommend it to any
one in similar need, in the full belief
that it will be helpful in every case.
