    ' The
General Demand
f the Well-Informed of the World haa
always been for a simple , pleasant and
efficient liquid laxative remedy of known
value ; a Ltxative which physicians could
eanctton for family use because its com
ponent parts are known to them to be
wholcsorat and truly beneficial in effect ,
acceptable to the system and gentle , yet
prompt , in action.
In supplying that demand with its cx-
! -cellent combination of Syrup of Figs and
I Elixir of Senna , the California Fig Syrup
f O > . proceeds along ethical lines and relies
| outlic merits of the laxative for its remark-
I able Huccesa.
That is one of many reasons why
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is given
the preference by the AVcll-Informed.
j To get its beneficial effects always buy
j [ the genuine manufactured by the Cali-
fornia. Hg Syrup Co. , only , and for sale
by all leading druggists. Price fifty cents

"Before trying to match the sample
of silk , says a writer in the Philadel

a piece of something you want or don't
want ? " "Something I want , of course , "
-replied the customer. "You don't sup
pose , do you , that I would go to all
ibis trouble for a thing I can't use ? "
"Sonus folks do , " said the clerk. ' 'I
"have met a number of them. The first
woman I ever saw with that point of
view had a square inch of blue silk

the casfc with talented persons. There
5s a simple , easy way to get rid of *
voffee enrlls and a Tenn. lady's experience - ,
ence along these lines is worth considering - r
ering : She says :
" 'Almost from the beginning of the
use of coffee it hurt my stomach. By
the time I was fifteen I was almost a
nervous wreck , nerves all unstrung , no
strength to endure the most trivial
ihlnxr , either work or fun.
'There was scarcely anything I could
eat that would agree with me. The
little I did eat seemed to give me more
trouble than it was worth , I finally
quit coffee and drank hot water , but
there was so little food I could digest ,
I was literally starving ; was so weak
I could not sit up long at a time.
"It was then a friend brought me a
hot cup of Postum. I drank part of it
and after an hour I felt as though I
had had something to eat felt 3a
strengthened. That was about five a
.years ago and , after continuing Postum

Once more the country has witnessed
perhaps for the last time a scene
which has been typical of life in the
United States the opening of a new era
of government land to settlers.
The scene this time was in South Da
kota , and the area the Rosebud Indian
reservation , oidit hundred and twenty-
eight thousand acres , a large portion of
which is valued at twenty-five dollars an
aero. It was distributed , in quarter sec
tions of one hundred and sixty acres each ,
imong the somewhat more than five thou
sand fortunate applicants.
A irroat chapter of American history is
closing , for thf unbuilding of the West
lias been largely due to the free land pol
icy of the government , and that policy is
low perforce losing its former significance ,
wing to the rapidly decreasing amount
f arable public domain.
The change in time- ; and conditions was
ilso well marked by this latest distribu-
ion of land. In pioneer days the "home
steaders" placed their families in "prai-
ie schooners. " and behind the plodding
xon made their way slowly to the prom-
sod land. Later , as in the Oklahoma
poning. thoj- traveled by rail to the nenr-
st station , and thon. on horseback or
n light buggies , made a breakneck dash
'or the coveted land. In the opening of
he Ro.-cbud reservation it was the auto-
nobile which furnished the most conspic-
ion < moans of transportation.
The methods of distributing government
and have been and are open to serious
TiticSsm. Forme , ly it was "first come ,
irst served ; " but as the crush and bru-
alities of the Oklahoma "dash" were in-
olentble. a system of distribution by lot
ras adopted.
For the somewhat more than five thou-
and lots just distributed , there were two
imuld ] thousand registrations. Youth's
Is there a school book trust ?
uestion has been raised by the recent
dvance in the prices of certain standard
ext books and school trustees at Chicago
ave begun an investigation of the so-
ailed book trust , or the American Book
Company. The latter concern has now
ome out in the open with a long adver-
isement in the leading daily and weekly
lapers giving the statistics of the sciiool-
ook publishing business. This asserts
hat there are in this country now over
70 independent publishers of school
ooks and that open and unlimited compe-
ition still prevails. Figures are quoted
hewing that there is now $ -12,000.000
apital engaged in the school-book busi-
ess and that out of that total no single '
ublisiher has over $ . " .000.000. The ad-
ertisement says that the talk about a
rust in this line is merely an ogre con-
ircd up by rival publishers to injure the >
Lmerican Book Company in the public
lincl. Reference is also made to the
ending suit in Texas to determine wheth-
r this company is a trust or not , it being
lid that the suit was inspired by the
lirty-six other hous competing for the

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications , as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There Is
only one way to cure deafness , and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the mu
cous lining of the Kustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing , and when it i.s
entirely closed , Deafness is the result , and
unless the inflammation can be taken out
and this tube restored to Its normal condi
tion , hearing \vill be destroyed forever : nine
cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh ,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.

A Common lliu iuent.
The dean of a normal college , in a
talk before the student body , was de-
hloring the practice common among
children of getting help in their lessons ,
and the tendency among parents to give
It too generously. As an illustration he
told the following incident :
The mother of a small pupil in a Chi-
Dago school had struggled through the
problems assigned for the child's next
lesson , and had finally obtained what
appeared to be satisfactory results : The
Qext day , when the little girl returned
from school , the mother inquired , with
Some curiosity :
"Were your problems correct , ? "
"Xo , mamma. " replied the child.
They were all wrong. "
"All wrongV" repeated the amazed
parent. "Oh. I'm so sorry ! "
"Well , mamma , you don't need to be
lorry , " was the reply. "AH the other
nainns had theirs " ' onjr. too. '
