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, will 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 fevers and permanently curing constipation. It has given satisfaction to millions and met with the approval of the medical profession, because it acts on the Kidneys, Liver 'and Bowels without weakening them a,iid it is perfectly free from every objectionable substance. Syrup of Figs is for sale by all druggists 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.

AQAfN tJEFEAf 60, S, Neb,, Oct. 27.— Tthe prairie fifes which have prevailed in this (Grant), Cherry. Sheridan, and I'hohms counties since Tuesday have assumed vast proportions. They started in Sheridan county ' and have thus far burned over a section of country forty iliiles ill width. The damage to hay, ;ranch property, and cattle is enormous,! jbttt nothing- like an accurate estimate 5s yet possible. Many lives are supposed to have been lust, and thousands of tons of hay haVe been burned, leaving- the cattlemen destitute. Homes and stock were also burned, and the cattle ranges are ruined. The list of taiown victims at present is: i BLISS, - , ranchman. ' LACHER, 13. L., ranchman. / TWO FARMERS, names unknown. RANCHMAN, at Mullen. The two first named were attempting to save their property by back burn- ; ing, but the hig-h wind drove the flames on them and cut oft' all escape rbefore they \vere aware of their danger. Lacher lived long enough to tell his story to ranchmen who came to Ins rescue after the flames had passed. The fires are burning in several directions and the wind is blowing almost a tornado. Hundreds of thousands of head of cattle are grazing in Cherry, Thomas, Grant, and the other counties where the fires are raging. These cattle were sent there from the southern part of the state, where the drouth has been felt so heavily, to graze for the winter. It is feared a large proportion of these cattle have perished. Several ranch houses are reported to have been destroyed and there is probability of a large loss of human jlif e. ! Nothing like the present disaster has 'happened for years. A s there are nuin- jerous streams in the afflicted section it [is presumed many -of the 'ranchmen Jiave succeeded in taking their families to these water courses and thus avoided danger. The flames are not driven high, since the grass is not tall, consequently any one reaching a stream can escape death unless overcome by the dense smoke. ' It is reported that two men were burned at Mullen. One is dead and the other is lying in a critical condition and will die. . At the same time a Qre started on the south side of the track, -burning everything clean from Lakeside to the Blue river. This report comes from Whitman, in the southern part of Grant county. Fires have been burning north of Whitman since Tuesday. Several thousand tons of hay have been burned and several miles of range burned over. Another fire has started in the north and is burning down east between tlie middle and north prongs of the Middle Loup this morning. • Citizens in the locality of Thedf ord, Thomas county, were out until a late hour Wednesday night burning fire guards and at this time the town is considered safe, unless the fire should eoine in north of the strip burned over. The wind is blowing at the rate of sixty miles an hour and grave fears are felt, as the atmosphere is full of smoke and cinders. So far no loss of life is reported in that locality, but the loss of range will be great to stockmen. DIBEFUI, NIGHT Itf SAND Terrific q ft les tash tho Flames Into Destructive Energy, AWWAWCB, Neb,, Oct. ST.— Last night was a direful night in a large portion of the sand hills. Devastating fires swept through the western part of Cherry and Grant counties all day burning on the north side of " the Bur' •lingtpn i-ailvoad track to within about four miles' of Hyanpis, .Laslie'd "on bv p, furious wind, the flres traveled at & pace that carried consternation and destruction, The. fire on the railroad was started, the first of the wee>k by a man and his pipe about ten nuiles ugrthwest pf Alliance, ^he man, was dyunk, and in filling and lighting hjs pipe threw the burning match, to the ground, where it, jgnited the grass.

Mo Goes Hack on Ills Confas&icm in thrt Arkansas White Cup Case. is, Oct. 27.—Tho trial of twenty-five white caps \vtis resumed yesterday tit Helena, Ark. The sensation of the day was the testimony of (Jus Bryant, the leader of the gang, who turned stale's evidence last spring and made ti confession.

TIFFIN, Ohio, Oct. a?.— The breaking of a bolt in the Edison electric works in this city last night at S o'clock was the cause of what for a time, threat- •ened to be a terrible panic and result in the death and maiming of scores of •human beings. The lights in the theater went out suddenly and a scramble for the exits at once commenced. Finally the gas was turned on and quiet restored, but many of the audience left the hall. A number of persons were bruised in the rush, but none were seriously injured. Spies Placed on Trial. S. C'., Oct. 27.— The trial of liquor spies, for murder was commenced yesterday.

Wealc nerves respond harshly and inbarmonl- ously to slight shocks, which would produce no effect upon strong ones. The shrill outcry 'of a child, the slamming of a door, the rattling of a vehicle over uneven pavement and other trifling disturbances effect weak nerves—sensitive nerves, sorely. Nervousness is largely attributed to dyspepsia and non-assimilation of the food, a very usual concomitant of sleeplessness. Digestion and assimilation renewed by Hosteller's Stomach Hitlers, soon beget nerve quietude and sound repose. The great alterative causes the liver and bowels to unite in cooperative harmony with the stomach, whereby the general tone of the system is raised to the true standard of health. In malarial complaints, rheumatism and kidney trouble, the Bitters produce excellent results. Inquiry is made as to what has broken the backbone of summer. Tho fall, of sourse.

A New York girl, in passing- through the hall of her house recently, encountered a burglar.

A Chicago criminal owes his escape from the penitentiary to the cleverness and devotion of his sistei*. She managed to administer to him, unknown to the prison officials, a drug which gave him every appearance of a violent attack of in.llammatory rheumatism. The woman then went to the judge and by telling him the condition of the prisoner secured a suspension of the sentence.

We have not the time, much less the inclination, to preach printed sermons for the sake of making a man quit tobacco, IF HE DOESN'T KNOW THAT IT HURTS HIM. We want to talk to the man who realizes that he is TOBACCO spitting and smoking his life away, who V/ANTS TO STOP AND CAN'T. Tobacco has produced a diseased condition of the nervous system, and from time to time, you are compelled to feed the never ceasing demands, and you may have, like millions of otber men, Nearly every I, day the newspapers give an account of some eminent man falling suddenly dead at his desk from heart disease. As a rule, no middle-aged man in, active business dies thus suddenly unless poisoned, and that poison, in a majority of esses, Is tobacco. Meanwhile the slaughter goes on, The press and the pulpit seem muzzled, the majority being participants in the popular vice, and those who sre not seem hypno- * tized and afraid to speak out. ^"f-4 Tobacco destroys manhood.
