The difference between what Harriman
Bid and what Harriman did not appear
therefore to be about $50,000,000 In favor of
tha Union Paciflo stockholders. This Is
What they gain because Harriman sold
tha Hill stocks before the collapse came.
The first table, however, loses sight of the
fact that If all the Hill stocks had been
lield they would have had "rights" to sub
scribe to new Issues. Had all these right
been sold they might possibly have brought
$7,000,000 to $10,000,000. More likely, however,
n attempt to sell them would have de
moralised the whole market for these
"rights." Bo that It seems fair to say
that because these Hill stocks were sold
at tha time they were the Union Paciflo
stockholders have gained about $43,000,000.
Now all this $139,000,000 had been In
vested In stocks which yielded to the Union
Pacific less than I per cent on their market
value. When the cash was received some
thing had to be done with it. It could
'not lay idle. Bo It was Invested In other

When the Burwood theater was opened
In 1906 "'The Girl I Left Behind Me" was
chosen for the bill, and was given such a
greeting as seemed to be the acme of local
enthusiasm. Yet If the ghost of the audi
ence thaKwItnessed the first Sunday night's
performance In the theater had been pres
ent last night It would have slunk away,
for It was more than beaten fairly. An
other singular coincidence was that the
house was opened in August, when warm
weather Is naturally expected, but It was
no warmer on the first night than It was
last night It was Just a little difficult for
some of the regulars to convince them
selves that It was not August, 1905, In
stead of March, 1907. Two of the biggest
audiences of the season watched the per
formances, and were well rewarded, for
the fine play was appropriately presented.
Mr. Hartford had arranged for a complete
setting, and has called Into service a big
detachment of the Omaha Guards, who do
yeomen service as . dismounted cavalry.
This, with the big cast, fills the stage with
people, and the scenes are moat animated

the role of Lieutenant Hawksworth, play

Many present last night could not help
comparing Mr. Hartford's work as Lieu
tenant Parlow with that of Mr. Owen, who
was In the first cast, and It Is praise
enough to say that Mr. Hartford doesn't
suffer by the comparison. He plays the
part with Intensity and Intelligent expres
sion. Mr. Todd loses his identity In that
of John Ladru, Scarbrow, the educated
leader of the mutinous Blackfeet, and
makes a good Indian. Mr. Davles and Mr.
Phlnney as General Kennlon and Major
Burleigh are good, and Mr. Phelps shows

Known Excellence and Quality and of Known Component Parts.
To gain the full confidence of the Well-informed of the world and the approval of
the most eminent physicians, it is essential that the component parts be known to and '
approved by them, and, therefore, the California Fig Syrup Company has published for many'
vears past in its advertisements and upon every package a full statement thereof. The per- .
feet purity and uniformity of product which they demand in a laxative remedy of an ethical
character are assured by the California Fig Syrup Company's sriginal method of manufacture,
known to the Company only.
7?ere re' other ethtcal "medies approved by physicians, but the product of ' UY
the California Fig Syrup Company possesses the advantage over all other family laxatives V
tnat it cleanses, sweetens and relieves the internal organs on which it acts, without
disturbing the natural functions or any debilitating after effects and without having to
increase the quantity from time to time.
This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrupof Figs, and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna, as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtlessly it will always be
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs; and to get its beneficial effects,
always note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co.
plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for Syrup
of .Fls.' ,or by the M name syruP f -figs and Elixir of Senna, as Syrup of Figs
and Elixir of Senna is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup Company, and the same heretofore known by the name, Syrup of Figs, which
has given satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists
throughout the United States in original packages of one size only, the regular urice
of which is fifty cents per bottle.
Every bottle is sold under the general guarantee of the Company, filed with the
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C, the remedy is not adulterated or mis
