With a better understanding1 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 svstem, 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 its 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
Till 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
fcted and gives most general satisfaction.
A New Flying Machine.
A new flying machine, similar in
prinoiple to that of Lilienthal, has been
devised by Herr Arthur Stenzel of Al
tona, Germany, says the Popular Soi
ence Monthly. It has parabolic wings
in imitation of bird's wings, ii driven
by the power of compressed carbonic
acid, and has been made to "go" when
attached for safety to a guiding cable.
With a force of one horse-power it
has advanced three meters at each beat
ing of the wings, of which there are
one and three-tenths per second. With
a horse-power and a half the machine
may be made to fly free from the cable.
The wings are remarkably elastio, and
the inventor thinks that this is one of
the factors of his success. They are
made of unsoldered steel tubes and
bamboo, and are covered with a spe
cially prepared india-rubber cloth. The
apparatus is directed by a rudder which
is not unlike a bird's tail. As yet no

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Downing, Hopkins & Company' Review
There were a number of considera
tions in the wheat market to unsettle
the ideas of traders. The uneasiness
over the July deal on account of the
small stocks has been one of the factors.
It was started by the discovery that
trades in July would not settle with
one of the prominent elevator concerns,
and the conclusion was at once reached
that this concern had bought enough
July wheafr to develop an interesting
situation with local contract stocks of
wheat so abnormally low.1; Not only
are local stocks and the American visi-'
ble away., below last year's1 level, but
the recent decreases have each week
been greater than expected. On account
of the good cash trade the local out
inspection has been heavy, and each
week a large percentage of the local
stock is moved out. . The position taken
by the board of trade directory on the
elevator question was inclined to add
to the uneasiness regarding the possi
bility of a July squeeze. .
Among the minor considerations
have .been the changes in the weather,
the reports 'of i locusts in the North
west, the good spring wheat flour trade.
f In. a general 'Way the market has been
unsettled and easily influenced in either
direction by a comparatively small
volume of trade;

Power for Blectrlc Car.
, The directors of the Hanover (Ger
many) tramway system have published
an important report, in which they nar
rate their -experiences with accumulat
ors as the source of the power for their
cars. In Hanover both overhead wires
and accumulators have been used for a
considerable time, so that the managers
are in a position to institute a reliable
comparison. Taking everything into
account, they pronounce in favor of the
storage cell. The cost of maintenance
they say has been determined with the
utmost exactitude possible for the year
1896, and the managers reach' the con
clusion that the additional .cost of ac
cumulators does not exceed one gros
chen, or .2 of a cent per mile. Consequently,-
it has been decided that the
entire system shall, as soon as the re
quisite arrangements can be made, be
driven by secondary batteries. :
