There is a story told of an oli veteran
of the Flrat Napoleon who lived- until
IMS In the French village of Bavarjr. and
who had a wooden leg, a wooden arm, a
glass eye. a silver palate, a complete set
of false teeth and a silver plate on the
top of his head, and yet died peaceably
In his bed. Compared with auch men the
proverbial nine-lived cat Is nowhere. But
as One reeds th stories of great wars
of the past the manner In which famous
generala have played touch-and-go with
death Is little short of miraculous.
The wonderful escapes of Napoleon and
Wellington wer proverbial. Though bul
lets grased them and riddled their clothes,
and both had horses shot under them,
yet both passed through a life of battle
and danger with two or three slight
wounds apiece.' But their grim old com
panion In arms, General Blucher. did not
fars so well. Wounded several times
while serving under Frederick the Great,
he retired from th army when that
Irascible monarch swore at him.
In response, however, to the patriotic!
call, he took up arms against Napoleon
and was seriously wounded at Lutsen.
At Llgny, too, he was thrown down and
ridden over by th French and Prussian
cavalry; but, by drinking quantities of
his favorite gin and water, the old war
dog was able to lead his troops on ths
following day, and to materially aealat ta

Syrup of Figs
Don't scold your fretful, peevish child.
See if tongue ia coated; this ia a sure
sign its little stomach, liver and bowels
sre clogged with sour waste.
When listless, pale, feverish, full of
cold, breath bad, throat sore, doesn't
eat. sleep or act naturally, has stomach
ache. Indigestion, diarrhoea, give a tea
spoonful of "California Syrup of Figs,"
snd In a few hours all the foul waste,
the sour bile snd fermenting food passes
out of the bowela and you have a well
and playful child again.. Children love
this harmless "fruit laxative," and moth
ers csn rest easy after giving It. because
It never - falls to make their little "In
sides" clean and sweet.
Keep tt handy. Mother! A little given
today eaves a sick child tomorrow, but
get the-genuine. Ask your druggist for
a 50-cent bottle of "California Syrup of
Figs,' which has directions for bablea,
children ot all agea and for grown-ups
plainly on the bottle. Remember there
are counterfeits sold here, so surely look
and see that yours Is made by the "Cali
fornia Fig Byrup Company." Hand
back with contempt any ether fig syrup.
