With a better understanding of the

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
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts It is therefore

If in the enjoyment of good health
and the system is regular then laxa

If afflicted with any actual disease one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians but if in need of a laxative
then one should have the best and with
the well informed everywhere Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
used and gives most general satisfaction

Hundreds of Thousands of the Birds
Iaternlly Overwhelm the Vessel
It is often said that one swallow does
not make a summer It can also be
truthfully asserted that one swallow
cannot cause a shipwreck but what a
multitude of swallows may do in this
line is another thing These birds came
near being responsible for running a
steamer on the rocks of the Spanish
coast near Malaga A Russian steam
er hailing from Odessa has for some
time been engaged in the Mediterra
nean trade principally carrying passen
gers between Leghorn and Malaga On
one of the recent trips it encountered
an adventure which will never be for
gotten by either the crew or the pas
sengers The passage had been a
stormy one but the day of the occur
rence was unusually fine Though a
rather heavy sea was running most of
the passengers were on deck Sudden
ly the lookout called Hurricane
cloud leeward At once there was
great consternation aboard and a num
ber of people sought safety below The
Captain however after glancing at the
barometer gave it as his opinion that
it was no hurricane cloud The black
mass that they saw hovering near the
horizon was he thought a particularly
dense volume of smoke from some
steamer But the solution of the mys
tery came much sooner than they had
expected The threatening mass grew
larger and larger and soon was seen
to bear down in the direction of the ves
sel with terrific speed Everybody
both crew and passengers became
frightened at the mysterious cloud
which seemed to move with great ra
pidity notwithstanding that a perfect
calm prevailed Then came the solu
tion The vast cloud that they had seen
was composed of swallows The fore
runners a small detachment of some
10000 swooped down on the deck to
the bewilderment of the people on
board These were soon followed not
by thousands but by hundreds of thou-

herits his fathers propensities except

Tall and thin but rugged as the little
peaks that leap into the sky around
him he is as picturesque and full of
color as any hunter drawn by Cooper
or Ileid He never knew a days illness
and never will His taking off will come
some night when he lies dowTn to sleep
in the mountains heart and slumbers
forever Out of the hunting season the
old man works a wee bit of a ranch in
the canon and sells the product in Santa
Monica But he despises this one link
that binds him to civilization and would
as soon abandon it as not The inte
rior of his hut is neat and suggestive
of his lineage Here are gathered relics
of his celebrated father which should
be worth much to any museum of Ameiv

sands The birds literally overwhelm
ed the vessel The man at the wheel
lost his bearings and the wildest dis
order prevailed The birds poured into
every available opening hatchways
windows and everywhere else They
got tangled in the ropes and sails and
clustered about the rigging Even the
smokestack was so filled up at one
time that the fires were nearly extin
guished The most amazing part of
the whole thing was that the birds did
not evince any disposition to leave To
heighten the confusion the steamer had
got out of its course and ran ashore
However on account of going very
slow no material damage was done
though the passengers were badly
frightened When the crew had re
covered from their amazement they be
gan to clear the deck and the vessel
in general of these unexpected and not
at all welcome guests The Captain
ordered the men to use shovels and
whatever they could to throw the birds
overboard After getting fairly in shape
the vessel proceeded on its voyage
having been delayed for nearly eight
hours on account of this singular expe
rience The Captain could not offer
any theory as to where this vast army
of swallows came from All he said
was that the birds evidently were ex
hausted from a prolonged flight during
the storm of the previous day and
sought rest on his vessel

Discovered Jim Fisk
The newspaper biographers of the
late Eben D Jordan the Boston dry
goods merchant have overlooked one of
his claims to fame It was he who
discovered James Flsk Jr Mr Jor
dan was first attracted to Fisk when
the latter came to his store as a ped
dler to replenish stock The rich mer
chant was so impressed with the young
mans shrewdness that he engaged him
as a clerk In a little while the very
qualities of character which brought
Fisk to his benefactors notice made
him also a good deal of a load to carry
Demands for increased pay followed
each other fast and before long Fisk
was drawing the largest salary in the
establishment and one which would
iave been considered enormous any
where else The next step was the en
trance of the high salaried clerk into
partnership with his employer and he
etained this position as long as it was
deemed safe New York Evening Post

on the Fourth of July and I got
very much exhausted having to
manage the yacht myself in a
northeast gale I did not have an
opportunity to eat properly
consequently my stomach was very
tired so that when I did eat I ate
too much and that resulted in a
condition which was followed by
severe neuralgia in my head My
experience with Ripans Tabules
previously taught me that possibly
the trouble might be remedied by
treating the stomach Before I had
taken the third Tabule my
neuralgia had gone and I was
feeling pretty well I had neuralgia
very bad and I could feel those
Tabules were working upon my
digestive organs and as they
worked my head improved in
