A NERVOUS WRECK
Mrs. Green Gained 26 Pounds and
Recovered Her Health by Taking
Dr. William' Pink Pills.
General debility is a term that covers
a multitude of cases where there is no
acute disease, yet the patient continues
to lose strength and the doctor's medi
cines have no apparent effect. This is
the decline that leads to death if means
are not found to check it. Ia a great
majority of cases Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills will check it and restore health and
strength because they actually make new
blood and so send renewed vitality to
every orgnu and tissue of the body.
Mrs. 8. A. Green, whose address is
Box 20, R. F. D. No. 4, Franklin, Ga.,
says : "For three and a half years I
suffered with weakness and nervous
ness, complicated with stomach trouble.
At times I was confined to my bed for
periods ranging from three weeks to two
months and was tinder the physician's
care most of the time for three years. I
do not know the cause of my trouble but
I wrs prostrated with weakness and, al
though I took a great deal of medicine,
nothing seemed to give me strength. At
times my stomnch hurt me something
fearful and my head often troubled me.
I was sleepless and what sleep I did get
did not refresh me.
' When I began taking Dr. "William
Pink Pills, I weighed but 104 pounds.
1 knew I was so bad that a few doses
would not cure me and I had patience.
Boon the pills began to give me strength,
my blood got in better condition, I could
sleep well at night and help some with the
housework. Now I weigh 130 pounds and
think nothing of walking half a mile.
Dr.Willi.Mns' Pink Pills have done won
ders for mo-and the neighbors all know
this statement is true."
, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by all
druggists, or will be sent by mail, post
paid, on receipt of price, 50 cents per box,

The extraordinary popularity of fine
white goods this summer makes the
choice of Starch a matter of great Im
portance. Defiance Starch, being free
from all injurious chemicals, is the
only one which is safe to use on fine
fabrics. Its great strength as a stiff-
ener makes half the usual quantity of
Starch necessary, with the result of
perfect finish, equal, to that when the
goods were new.
Natural Color of Pure Water.
It was long ago discovered that the
natural color of pure water is blue,
and not white, as most of us usually
supposed. Opinions have not agreed
on the cause of the green and yellow
tints; these, it has been discovered
by W. Spring, are due to extraneous
substances. Dissolved calcium 'salts,
though apparently giving a green tint,
due to a fine Invisible suspension,
have no effect on the color of the
water when adequate precautions
are taken. The brown or yellow color
due to iron Baits is not seen when cal
cium is present. The grean tint is
often due to a condition of equilibrium
between the color effect of the iron
salts and the precipitating action of
the calcium salts. Scientific American.
TAME WILD BEASTS
How Rhodes and Beit Met.
Mr. Rhodes once told a circle 01
friends after dinner the story of his
first meeting with Beit. "I called at
Porges' late one evening," he said,
"and there was Beit working away as
usual. 'Do you never take a rest?' I
asked. 'Not often,' he replied. 'Well,
what's your game?' said I. 'I am go
ing to control the whole diamond out
put before I am much older,' he an
swered, as he got off his stool. 'That's
funny,' I said. 'I have made up my
mind to do the same; we had better
loin hands,' " Join hands they did.
Unlike Alfred Beit, Cecil Rhodes had
small patience with arithmetical de
tails. Once this characteristic in
volved him in a difficulty. 1 Pitching a
balance sheet into the pile of papers
before Beit, he exclaimed desperately,
' Here, you understand things; for
heaven's sake tell me how I stand."

Sweet Potato Pudding.
Peel and wash a large sweet potato,
wipe dry, and grate with a large
grater. While the potato is being
grated heat one quart of milk, stir a
cup of the grated potato into the hot
milk, and let it boil. Meantime beat
four eggs to a cream, add one table
spoon butter to the milk and potatoes,
and take them off the fire. Stir the
beaten eggs with the milk and pota
toes, season the pudding palatably
with salt and pepper, and put into an
earthen dish and bake for 20 minutes,
or until the custard is firm. ;.
That wild animals become extremely

Several years ago some residents,
on one of the channel islands of south-i

the water within easy gunshot ana
they build their nests on pinnacles
that are not difficult of approach. The
sea birds are equally tame. Gulls
gather in flocks a few feet from those
who feed them. In the winter flocks
of cormorants swim into the bays and
are so tame that they merely divide

often find that the cormorants take off

sea lions. For ages the animals have,

as with joyous hearts and smiling faces they romp and play when in health and
how conducive to health the games in which they indulge, the outdoor, life they
enjoy, the cleanly, regular habits they should be taught to form and the wholesome
diet of which they should partake. How tenderly their health should be preserved,
not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an injuri
ous or objectionable nature, and if at any time a remedial agent is required, to assist
nature, only those of known excellence should be used ; remedies which are pure
and wholesome and truly beneficial in effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy,
Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. Syrup of Figs has
come into general favor in many millions of well irnVmed families, whose estimate
of its quality and excellence is based upon personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs has also met with the approval of physicians generally, because
they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We inform all reputa
ble physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs, obtained, by an
original method, from certain plants known to them to act most beneficially and
presented in an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are
used to promote the pleasant taste ; therefore it is not a secret remedy and hence
we are free to refer to all well informed physicians, who do not approve of patent
. medicines and never favor indiscriminate self-medication.
Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Figs
always has the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. -plainly
printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale in bottles of one size
only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent size, or having
printed thereon the name of any other company, do not accept it. If you fail to get
the genuine you will not get its beneficial effects. Every family should always have
a bottle on hand, as it is equally beneficial for the parents apd the children,
whenever a laxative remedy is required.
