of the Well-Informed of the World has
always been for a simple, pleasant and
efficient liquid laxative remedy of known
value; a laxative which physicians could
•auction for family use because its com-
ponent parts are known to them to be
wholesome and truly beneficial in effect,
acceptable to the system and gentle, yet
prompt, in action.
In supplying that demand with its ex-
cellent combination of Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna, the California l'ig Syrup
Co. proceeds along ethical lines and relies
on the merits of the laxative for its remark-
That is one of many reasons why
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is given
the preference by the Well-informed.
To get its beneficial effects always buy
the genuine—manufactured by the Cali-

A. D. Bailey, Buried Under 500 Feel
of Rock at Ely, Nev., Says Res-

Victor, Col.—Entombed 1,000 feet
below the earth's surface since De-
cember 4, A. D. Bailey, a miner of Ely,
Nev., has written to a friend here tell-
ing of his perilous position, but ex-
pressing his hope of being rescued be-
Bailey, with two companions, was
caught in the cave-in of the Alpha
shaft, and 500 feet of rock dropped
into the passage above them, cutting
off all communication with the outer
world. By a lucky accident, however,
the niche in which they were working
was not filled by the falling debris.
The imprisoned miners had oil
enough in their lamps to allow them
to explore their tomb, and in their
search for a way out they stumbled
upon a six-inch water pipe, which
extended down the shaft and which
escaped destruction in the accident.
Through this the prisoners estab-
lished communication with their res-
cuers and soon drinking water and
rations were sent down. Then, not
satisfied with this crude means of
talking with the outside world, they
connected their telephone with a wire
running up the water column.
Although in no need of the necessi-
ties of life, the prisoners are still in
grave danger, as the ground is still
settling, and from time to time it will
be necessary to fill in the space with
cordwood to prevent another cavein.
Owing to the frequent runs of earth
during the last three days it will prob-
ably be two weeks before they are res-
The rescuers themselves face grave
perils in trfe liability that the piled up
muck and timbers on which they are
working will give way, dropping them

Doan's Kidney Pills, but now the
symptoms that alarmed me are gone."

Didn't Like Being Starved.
A man running on a railroad has to
be in good condition all the time or he
Is liable to do barm to himself and
A clear head is necessary to run a
locomotive or conduct a train. Even
a railroad man's appetite and diges-
tion are matters of importance, as the
clear brain and steady hand result
from the healthy appetite followed by
the proper digestion of food.
"For the past five years," writes a
railroader, "I have been constantly
troubled with indigestion. Every doc-
tor I consulted seemed to want to
starve me to death. First I was diet-
ed on warm water and toast until I
was almost starved; then, when they
would let me eat, the indigestion
would be right back again.
"Only temporary relief came from
remedies, and I tried about all of them
I saw advertised. About three months
ago a friend advised me to try Grape-
Nuts food. The very first day I no-
ticed that my appetite was satisfied,
which had not been the case before,
that I can remember.
"In a week, I believe, I had more
energy than ever before in my life. I
have gained seven pounds and have
not had a touch of indigestion since
I have been eating Grape-Nuts. When
my wife saw how much good this food
was doing me she thought she would
^try It awhile. We believe the dis-

TWO CURES OF ECZEMA
His Letter Sent Up Water Tube.f

In his letter, sent up the water tube,
mailed, and received later by Thomas
Hamill, Bailey says, in part:
"I am now imprisoned in Alpha
shaft. On the fourth of this month
the shaft caved in. Two of the four
men who were working in the pump
station are with me and others are
buried at the bottom of the shaft. The
shaft caved in at the 400-foot level and
we are at the 1,000-foot level. The
shaft is full of dirt up to the cavein
and we are under 500 feet of solid
rock. If all goes well I hope to be on
top in' 12 or 14 days.
"After the accident we disconnected
the six-inch water column at the
pump and they are sending our drink-
ing water and rations down it. We are
living on the best in the land, as
evgrybody wants to send us some-
thing. Wine, cigars and all kinds of
fruits are being sent down. They
send down our supplies in small ves-
sels attached to a rope and arranged
so as to prevent spills.
"After we got the water column
opened we connected our phone to the
electric cable and we can telephone up
and talk to the men on top at any
"Well, brothers, if all is well and
the all-wise providence stays with us
I hope to be on the top and see my
wife and family in a short time. We
are above the water level, so there is
no danger on that score."
Baby Had Severe Attack—Grandfather
Suffered Torments with It—
Owe Recovery to Cuticura.
"In 1884 my grandson, a babe, had
an attack of eczema, and after trying
the doctors to the extent of heavy bills
and an increase of the disease and suf-
fering, I recommended Cuticura and
in a few weeks the child was well. He
is to-day a strong man and absolutely
free from the disease. A few years
ago I contracted eczema, and became
an intense sufferer. A whole winter
passed without once having on shoes,
pearly from the knees to the toes be-
ing covered with virulent sores. I tried
many doctors to no purpose. Then I
procured the Cuticura Remedies and
found immediate improvement and
final cure. M.W.LaRue, 845 Seventh St.,

Where She Should Live.
"What under the sun," asked a
father of his daughter who wanted her
to make a match with a young man
whose only qualification was the pos-
session of a goodly fortune—"what
earthly objection can you possibly find
to Mr. Spriggins?"
"He has habits,' replied the daugh-
ter, "which I detest! When I marry
1 want a husband who does not smoke,
chew, drink, swear, belong to clubs,
play cards, stay out late or go motor-
ing by himself."
The father looked at his daughter
for a moment or two in silence and
"My child, you are but a strauger
here; heaven is your home."

George had been away on business
for a whole long week, and " during
that time he had sent Clara ten let-
ters, six letter-cards and 42 picture !
Why, then, was there a touch of |
coldness in her greeting when he flew ;
to her arms on his return?
"Dearest," he whispered, "what Is
"Oh, George," she said, "you didn't
send a kiss in your ninth letter."
"My precious," he replied, "that
night I had steak and onions for din-
ner, and you wouldn't have liked a

And, such is the unfathomable pow-
er of love, she was satisfied, and nes-

Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory if the right
Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it is usually neces-
| sary to use so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear-
ing quality of the goods. This trou-
ble can be entirely overcome by using
Defiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of Its great-
er strength than other makes.
Taking His Measure.
"Do you ever drink to excess?" asked
the girl's father.
"I never touch liquor of any kind,
"How about tobacco?"
"I do not smoke. I have never had
a cigar or a cigarette in my mouth."
"Never. I do not know one card
"I suppose you swear sometimes?"
"No, sir. An oath has never passed
"Um. All right. Come out and have
a stick of candy with me."

ing constantly improved, the patent
Starches put on the market 25 years
ago are very different and Inferior to
thoso of the present day. In the lat-
est discovery—Defiance Starch—all in-
jurious chemicals are omitted, while
the addition of another ingredient, in-
vented by us, gives to the Starch a
strength and smoothness never ap-
proached by other brands.
The Chauffeur's Thought.
A well-known Englishman tells a
good motor-car story. He says that
on one occasion, when instructing his
chauffeur to drive carefully, he re-
marked: "I don't mind about grown-
up people and dogs, but do be careful
about children and babies." Whereup
on the chauffeur replied: "Yes, them

In Irish—all in vain; In Greek, Turkish
and Latin, and in the tongue of Spain.
And then an inspiration came to the
anguished youth. "The universal
language," he cried, "I'll try, for-
sooth!" He kissed the demure maiden
and pressed her to his breast; she
understood that language, and—well,
you kuow the rest.

Dr. C. F. Simmons, San Antonio, Texas:
Dear Sir—1 have just returned from a visit to your lands in Atascosa
County. I left R1 Reno on the 2nd of this month, for the purpose of look-
ing over Southwest Texas, and especially your land, with a view of locat-
ing in Texas, if suited.
1 spent two nights and a day on your ranch, and while there I was in
the Musgrove, Brown, Turkey Creek, Muley cow and Frenchman pas-
tures, and mode as complete an examination of the property as I could
within the limited time that I had to spare. I consider your land the best
body of land that I have seen in Southwest Texas, and 1 have looked over
considerable lands in Texas.
1 was agreeably surprised at the quality of the soil on this ranch. It
was much better than 1 expected to see, and I consider it a most favor-
able opportunity for a poor man to get a good home.
The soil is what I would call dark and red chocolate loam, with occa-
sionally a little sand, which I consider a benefit in some respects, rather
than a hindrance.
1 have betn engaged in farming and ranching about all my life, and
have had much experience in raising alfalfa in Kansas and Oklahoma in
iny mind there is no ciuestion but that tlie black land on your ranch it
especially adapted to the successful growing of alfalfa, which I cousider
the most valuable farm crop that any farmer can raise. While in Sao
Antonio, I saw fresh alfalfa hay on the wagon, and it was selling for $17 00
per ton, loose hay. With the long seasons you have in Texas, and proper
irrigation, you should get at least seven or eight cuttings of alfalfa a year
off this land, and there ought to be a yield of at least a ton to the cutting
1 saw the large artesian well at the Headquarters ranch, and I must u>
it is the finest artesian well I ever saw, and is fully up to your represents-
tions in every respect. y
