Gladness Comes W ith a better understanding of the transient nature ot! the many physical ills, which vanish before proper of- iorts—gentle e ft'orts—pi eas;in t efforts— rightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge, that so rmiuy forms of •idkness are not due to unv actual disease, but simply to a constipatedcond- tion of the system, which the picasanc Immilv laxative. Syrup of Figs, promptly removes. That is why it is the only remedy with millions of families, and is eTcrywherc esteemed so highly by all Who value good health. Its beneficial effects arc due to the fact, that it is the one remedy which promotes internal cleanliness without debilitat : ng the onrans on which it acts. It is therefore «lf Important, in order to get its bene- •fldal effects, to note when you purchase, that you have the genuine article, which is manufactured by the Caii- fornia Fig Syrup Co, only and sold by all reputable druggists. If In the enjoyment of good health, ««d the system is regular, laxatives or Other remedies are then not needed. It afflicted with any actual disease, one MY be commended to the most skillful -Shysicians, but if in need of a laxative, «oe should have the best, and with the •well-informed everywhere, Syrup of Ifes stands highest and is most largely -" 1 and gives most general satisfaction.

' FATE OF TWO 'SNAKES. \Vore i»t the Bottom of a Mine When Notice to Quit Was tjerrod. A Forest and Stream correspondent tells a South African story. Two snakes were at the bottom of a 60-foot -mine shaft. The snakes were efl.ch about ten feet long, ajid fit one of the most poisonous species, known ns mambos. Now, miners und ten-foot mambas do not tigree very -well, and this is especially true when both ore at the bottom o* a mining shaft. The miners whose claim had been jumped sent a message down to the-snakea-with orders to come up. The message was a bottle of dyr.amite with a lighted fuse attached. The snakes obeyed the summons at once. They, came up the perpendicular shaft with such speed that they Bhot up 30 feet abovo the opening of the shaft. When they came down they were somewhat mixed. The two tails had in some way got tangled into a square knot, such «s sailors tie. The snnkcH wonted to go in opposite dirnstion?, but the efforts were in vain, ui.d'ihey fell to and stung one another to dcnth. <* DON'T STOP TOBACCO Ho-w to Cure Yourself While Using It_ The tobacco habit grows on a man until his nervous system Is seriously affected, Impairing health, comfort and happiness.

It is the skull of "Liu.lii.Poplar," the great fighter and warrior, at one time the Biib-cbief of the Croc nation. The Crocs had their homes and lands in Canada, and. when the Kiel rebellion broke out some .years ago "Little Poplar" took advantage of the opportunity it afforded to make war on his own account. Tie attacked tun white settlers, burned their homes, carried oil their women and instituted a reign of terror in the region of his operations. Hundreds of persons became the victims of his bloodthirsty cruelty. He destroyed their herds, laid their homes in smoking 1 ruins and put women and little children to the torture. There was, in fact, no form of deviltry too horrible for this Indian to perpetrate. • When the Kiel rebellion was crushed "Little Poplar" crossed to the American side. So great was the horror he had excited that a reward of 52,000 was offered for his 'apprehension, dead or alive, 1 In 1SSG he was murdered near Fort Assiniboino, Mont,, and the half- breed who killed him received the reward. One of the soldiers.of the fort watched for years the lonely grave in which "Little'Poplar" had been buried, nnd at last, when he feltcertain thalall the flesh had been 1 worn off the bones, he dug up the skull and kept it as n relic. It has just found a resting place on one oi the shelves of the national museum. Di« proportionate. There is but one firm of undertaker* In Skowheg-an, Me., to 12 doctors practicing 1 in the place.

Btnior I-otfes Six. Major* Crucllt for Xeff- loctinij "Uyni" \\orl:. The faculty of the University of Chicago has incurred the wrath of the stii- decte. The squabble is over the old [jxHtetion of required gymnasium work. A student just about, to graduate has hud six nuTjors credit tukexi oil' bfcanse of continued absence from "gym," ajid now \viJl have to stay two extra quarters at Ihe 'varsity if he graduates. IDs ease has been under discussion some days, and the other day he was notified .that the faculty of the senior college, of which Jie is a member, had passed i special rule in his cose, striking off a corresponding number of mujors credit for the quarters during which he was absent from gymnasium. The decision came like a thunderbolt to the young' man, whose father is connected with the university. Many of the students say that the authorities of the university have no right to take away credit that has been paid for, earned and once recognized by the university. The university is just $00 to the good on the transaction and the student loses two quarters' time. The trustees feel that the penalty is entirely too severe. The student under the b(m bears it bravely and says that lie will not protest any more. He considers that his credit should not have been taken away, but that if such a course was thought necessary by the authorities he should have been required to make up the "gym" work in question. MATRIMONIAL " AGENCIES. Borne AdvantaRcons Alliances Effected by Their A»»lBt»nce In France. A very profitable form of swindling JB that of the matrimonial agencies which are now worked in France in n mannerentirely unknown, says the London Spectator, to M. De Foy. who was the real originator of marriage by in termediary. There are, of course, offices where preliminary-fees areasked and where wife seekers and ladies yearning for lords are quietly swindled after having been told to go to the opera, the salon or the fashionable church of Sainte-Clotilde. The strange port of the matrimonial agency scheme is that you never know, when in society whether some banker, priest or old lady cf fierce virtue and mystical tendencies may not be a husband or wife broker. There ore young ladies not too thin skinned, head waiters in certain restau rants, livery stable keepers, cloistered nuns, notaries nnd lady doctors of the obstetric school. These are only a portion of the army of workers in the juter- ests of Cupid, There are at present in Paris two wealthy American girls who have married titles, upon the wedding 1 day of each of whcm a very handsome •commission was paid to one of these intermediaries, of course without the knowledge of the wife.
