There are more wrinkles In the face of a
baby monkey than there are in that of an
old baboon. And speaking of wrinkles,
more of them can be wrought out in a fair
young face by neuralgia than in that of an
aged person. Constant pain will shrivel,
and neuralgia neglected will plow its fur
rows deep. It not only wrinkles, but takes
the bloom away and gives the skin a dull
and yel low look. St. Jacobs Oil is a prompt
and sure cure for neuralgia, and it should
be used, as while it soothes and cures, it
smooths out the tracks of pain and leaves
the skin healthy and fair again ; besides it
rids the sufferer of much torment and re
stores a happier disposition. Gook looks
come only with good health, and health is
found in the absence of pain. - .

rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so 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

A Resume of Events in
WEEKLY . MARKET LETTER.
Downing, Hopkins A Company's Review
The past week has been a -very active:
one in the wheat market, prices ad-!
vancing materially and substantially.!
Liquidation by the long interest has!
ceased and the speculative short sellers!
have been liberal buyers to cover pre-;
vions sales. The principal oauses for;
this reversal have been the renewed ex-i
port demand and the unprecedented!,
large sales of flour, mostly for hornet
consumption. In addition, crop pros-
pects in American are much less favor-,
able. The winter wheat crop now!
promises no importaijt inorease com-!
pared with that of Jast year. The ex-j
oessive moisture has generally retarded
the seeding of spring wheat, particular-)
ly in the Northwest, where severe
floods in the Bed river and Jim river!
valleys promise ; to seriously delayj
spring seeding, and is certain to pre-j
vent any large inorease in acreage sown!
as compared with last year. J
Hot winds in California have oau sedj
extensive damage and advanced prices
in San Francisco markets equal to 12c
The total crop yield how promises not
to be sufficiently larger than that of
last year to meet the increasing demand
for American breadstuff's by importing
countries. In this connection it should
be remembered that since the war with
China, Japan has subsidized her mer
chant marine with the war indemnity.
The consequent reduotion in ocean
freight rates has led to large sales of
wheat and flour to Japan and China,
amounting to 28,000,000 bushels dnring
the present crop year. The opening
up of this new market for our wheat is
certain to have a stimulating effect on
values. Nothing but the lack of specu
lation , prevents an advance in prices.
The export demand, if continued, with
our present small stocks, may lead to
inoreased speculative aotivity and fur
nish the market with that support the
lack of which caused the recent de
cline. : -

Champion Michael Advises Use of
Paine's Celery Compound.
James Michael is the champion long
distance bicyclist of the world.
He recommends all wheelmen te
take Paine's celery compound.
His experience is that of thousands
of others. With the opening of the
bicycle season many a young person and
hundreds of older people who have de
termined to take up bicycling as a
health-giving exercise find themselves
really lacking the proper "snap" or
stamina to begin on. Their bodily
condition prevents so spirited exercise.
They would like to ride, but they are
out of sorts, run down by a winter of
work or indoor life. ' Many who are
really sick, who have Buffered from
debility or wasting diseases for a long
time until they bad begun to think
their troubles had become chronic, as
nothing gave them relief, would turn
to bicycling for relief. But this splen
did exercise, like any other, requires
strength to undertake. The blood is
out of order, the nerves deranged; and
-nature's food for both is needed.
, All such persons will find to their
immense joy that Paine's celery com
pound, taken now, will make them well.
Paine's celery compound works won
ders in the spring. If yon have labored
nnder the load of repeated headaches,
neuralgic pains and days of nervous de
bility, now is your best time to get well.
Michael is today the most phenomenal
rider in professional ranks. As far
back as 1894 he was undisputed cham
pion of Great Britain, and in the fol
lowing year he went to France and j
scored twenty-five straight wins against
the picked riders of Europe, He has
defeated such famous men as Jacquelin, '
;Gougoltz, Huret, Rivierre, Bonhours, 1
Bourrillon and Barden of England, and
Leyten, the Belgian champion. j

Michael has made cycle racing a care
ful study, and is in a position to give
excellent advice not only to racing men
but to wheelmen and athletes in gen
eral. In reference to his own methods
the following letter will interest every
body. Boston, Mass; , Feb. 21, 1897.
After the exertion of my record rides
while with the Morgan & Wright team
in the south last winter, during which
I lost somewhat in weight, on account
of the unaccustomed climate, I was ad
vised to use Paine's celery compound.
I am pleased to say that it gave such
satisfaction that I was impelled to use
it again to brace up from the effects of
the two unusually rough ocean trips
that I have taken during the past
month. I believe that wheelmen who
have to undergo the hardships of "cir
cuit chasing" will find Paine's celery
compound of assistance in keeping up
their physical tone. :
Every one needs to take a spring rem
edy to purify their blood, arouse the
circulation and counteract the debilitat
ing effect of months of confining work,
worry and excitement.
The more intelligent portion of every
community are the ones who best rec
ommend Paine's , celery compound.
They have looked into this great rem
edy, followed its remarkable achieve
ments in the case of friends, neighbors
and relatives, and know just what to
expeot from its use as a nerve and brain
strengthener and restorer and an ideal
invigorator for a rundown system.
