VOL. XVIII. NO. 1«. CARUOLL, IOWA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 10, 1894. WHOLE NO. 904. KNOWLEDGE Brings comfort and improvement and tends to personal enjoyment when rightly used. The many, who live better than others and enjoy life more, with less expenditure, by more promptly adapting the world's best products to the needs of physical being, g'\f. attest the value to health of the pure liquid laxative principles embraced in the remedy, Syrup of Figs. Its excellence is due to its presenting in the form most acceptable and pleasant to the taste, the refreshing and truly beneficial properties of a perfect laxative; effectually cleansing the system, dispelling colds, headaches and feverf and permanently curing constipation. It has given satisfaction to millions and met with the approval of the medic*, profession, because it acts on the Kidneys, Liver and Bowels without weakening them and it is perfectly free from every objectionable.substance. Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drug- okta in 50c and $1 bottles, but it is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only, whose name is printed on every package, also the name, Syrup of Figs, and being well informed, you will not accept any substitute if offered.

EDITOR SBNTINBL:— -On Saturday morning, had your perch been on the summit of any ot the mountain peaks surrounding the springs, yon could have observed a tired and possibly sleepy party alight from the F. E. & M. V. ex onraion tiain and hie themselves to various hotels. Ot course Carroll was represented as she always is, where there is a good time on the program. A portion ot the Oarroll delegation is well known to the writer and, adding to snob knowledge the testimony ot the citizens here, I feel safe in saying that the Carroll banner will float from the highest pinnacle, so long so long aa the boya remain, avan though they have to seals Battle mountain, and there tar above all competitors raise their motto, "Excelsior," to welcome and woo tb* first kiss of the morning sunbeam. Fearing their proud state of Iowa might suffer for lack ot champions, the Oarroll boys, like so many b— d b— *, peuetnttod tba innermost raooasos of the first olsas hotels, though a majority decided that the Oitlespia offered the bast ground for conquest. Briefly then, without fear of contradiction, yon can aay lo your raadara that many are hunt ing maps of Iowa, that they can locate the much talked ot Oarroll. The boys all speak in the highest praiaa ot their trip, mad* doubly pleasant by tba unoaasing attention of the oompany'a agent, Mr. Qablo. His aim aosmad to be to win tba good will of av«ry member ot the excursion and if bersaay evidence is to be accepted Bis auooaas is simply immense. Of course, owing to the peculiar com position of (he •xoursiou, bis duties were numerous and varied and it required but a fsw hours to convince him that no ous agent could nil tba bill. In till* dilemma ba sought the counsel of the Hoc . M. M. and upon wnoaa ad vie* two ot Carroll's bast young man w*r* appointed amarganoy agaola for tb* rauaindar ot the trip, and II goaa without saying that Mob aud avary duly assigned them rooeivad |»raoual attention. Should tba tutura a** aitbar ot said gautlaman away up in railroad oirolas it will ba for aarvioaa raudvred during thin trip. Mora able writers tban I hava so often aauUd to your r«adara \»u pioturea ot Hoi Springs, it* (ttlrnolioua aud advantage* as wall as of tua surrounding otwutry, thai (or ma lo rajiaal would aaeni prasumpluoua. Tba party w*i nlMwad to find oropa all along thair route baiter Ibaueipaotod. paoiaUy is this tru* in Klkboro valla*, liiougb trow raliablt) inforwatlow Ibay war* l»«d to opnolnoV tbit MM out of tb* v«U»y, on tba upland tba oropa van badly damaged. Orass lands show that showers have been less coy ot Nebraska than western Iowa and the crop, while not, large wilt still well repay oaring for. This vicinity has been blessed with frequent rains and presents a lees parched appearance than do tome of adjoining counties east. Rnmor has it that Saturday and Sunday brought to this resort the largest crowd of the season. The Evans and Oillespie hotels were [reasonably well filled, though like the stage coach of olden times, could have stored away a few more had necessity so demanded. The plunge is the beet patronized resort Bbd apparently furnishes its patrons •more tun for the mouey invested than any other attraction. Proof ot this will be furnished upon application, by Charley, John or Ben, each ot whom seemjto have fonnd the sparking baths more charming than they expected, or even dreamed of. The writer is aware that letters of this kind lose zest unless the "personaF'spaoe baa attention. Sha also knows that personal items often over estimate one's ability aud true merit, hence due caution will be bad herein and all semblance ot fiction promptlv discarded. It will be no surprise to your readers to know that huge bills are now posted on buildings, fences, trees and in fsot on everything to which paste would stick, announcing that Professors Wright & MUler will soon give one of their exhibitions on, in and under water. The acts advertised by the professors are many and varied, so mnoh so that apace forbids but minor mention. The great performance will be bald at the plunge, which has been engaged and is .being strengthened and refurnished that it may prove aafe as wall as comfortable tor the vast audience expected. Prof. W. will appear as a beautiful mermaiJ.and as snob, will show true to life that creature's habits. That the professors are sparing neither time nor labor in tbisjmatter, allow me to say, sub rosa, that a space 40x50 feet in the plunge will ba excavated to a depth of 40 feet aud lot,' ia of coral and maee placed therein to truthfully represent ilia mermaids home. A supply of fish will also be placed therein that the professor may show the mermaid's deftness in catching and disposing of the finny tribe. Prof. M. will then appear and astonish the audience by leaping from spring board 10 feet above the water, alighting on his bare feet, be will walk upon the water tbrioa around the plunge, the dimensions of which are 50x100 feet. Prof. M. offers 8 0001 reward if any committee selected by the audienos can prove that in this act the instep of bis foot ahowa Irtoes oflmoistnre. The next act as billed, shows Prof. W. again in the mermaid's bannte, where, under water, be will for fifteen minutes aitoiiish tha andianoa by acrobat's feata ou (tie turning pole and trapeze. That tba professor is king ot acrobats none who hava saan this act will attempt to deny. Prof. M., resplendent in his star be. spangled bioyole anil, will appear astride hia glittering Columbia, and as be before walked upon the water, au will ba now ride thrice around ibe plunge and reaching the daap water ot tba mermaid's borne be will gracefully ride to tba bottom aud Ibara will, still aalride hi* Columbia, gradually sink from view, tba pebbly bottom dosing above him. This act requires graat axertion as also caution and is performad by the protestor only to prove to a oartaiuty that "there's a bota iu the bottom of the sea." After Ibia act it is expected that many ot the audienos will require time to inquire "where they are at; hence bills read 15 minute* for refnwuuieute. Just here the gaulla broeaa wafts to my ear tba supper call, heuoa I rasarva further comment (or future latter. Heat asaurad I will keap an *y« ou tba other boya and their every aut will ba food for futura reflection. Alwaya the tame MAUU. UATUI.
