CREASE AND INCREASE. .
An elephant wears more creases to his
trousers than any other animal. They
seem to be sort of a kilt pleat with a bias
slope. He is not very fashionable, but is
up to date in taking care of himself. Some
sudden, violent pains crease, twist or con
tract the muscles or tendons, and this is
the nature of a bad sprain. If neglected,
the creases increase, and so does the pain,
until sometimes it is very difficult to
straighten them out, but by the prompt
upe of St. Jacobs Oil, the friction or rub
bing in its application and the curative
qualities of the oil will smooth out the
worst twist or crease and get the muscle in
natural shape, where it will remain, re
stored, strengthened, cured. Promptness
in using it insures prompt cure, and when
the sprain is cured, it is cured for good. .

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef-forts-gentle
efforts pleasant efforts
rightly directed. There is comfort in
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 so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is-therefore
all important, in order to get it, bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
jbedand gives most general satisfaction.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER
Downing, Bopkini & Company' Beview
of Trade. -
Trading in wheat this week has not
been widespread, but to a great extent
was confined within 'the ranks of the
professionals, who are considerably
worked up over the increasing amount
of bad crop news. St. Louis appears to
be the center of the disturbance and
has been persistently loading the wries
with stories of great harm done. Many
traders have been disinclined to give
the reports much attention, and in fact
have only arched their eyebrows when
brought to their notice. Many of those
who have been loathe to acknowledge'
these stories are now changing front
and think there must be some fire where
there is so much smoke. The country
at large, though, is only buying wheat
sparingly, but St. Louis professionals
appear to be taking hold liberally, and
are pinning their faith in the reliability
of crop damage in the Southwest. This
is just the time of year for a genuine
crop scare, and, with the weather con
ditions as they are, damage tales will
multiply instead of diminish. ,
' Statistics are, of course, just as favor
able for an advance as at any time re
cently; in fact more so. Visible stocks
are decreasing and the world's stocks
are steadily diminishing.' The world's
shipments are running from 8,000,000
to 3,500,000 bushels below the weekly
requirements of the United Kingdom
and the continent, but for all that, for
eigners are not alarmed over the out
look. They are certainly not taking
the wheat from this country in such
quantities as one would expect under
the circumstances. Cables are merely
fractional in quoting changes on the
other side. Exports of wheat and flour
from both coasts for the week are 100,
000 'bushels more than last week, and
exceed those for the same week in 1896
by about 5,000- bushels. We have had
war scares of the opera bouffe order,
but war seems to be just as distant as
There has been a fair amount of trad
ing in the corn market this week and
speculation has been brisker. Wheat
