Though my father was one of the i most cautious men, he never hes itated to let Uncle Dan take our whole house party of visiting rela tives in the big old family carriage across swollen streams to weddings and receptions in that charming neighborhood, when chivalry was in flower, for he had judgment about such things not always found in one of his race. The ante-bel lum darkey is fast disappearing — his going is contemporary with the falling m of old Southern man sions atid the decay of summer houses in spacious country rose- gardens, long neglected and over grown. His wife, Melia, came to my mother from the Culberson es tate and together they have lived all the years ol their freedom at the same old home. During my lather’s last illness no one did more for hmt than this faithful, dusky friend of a long lifetime. Like his Lord, “he came not to be ministered unto, but to minister.” Success is not mentioned in the Bible, but faithfulness commended and a reward promised. Had pros perity smiled on me, I would have marked his grave with an enduring tablet, with thes: words engraved thereon: “Faithful unto death, he receiv ed a crown of life!” Fair flowers, dewy with tears of regret, were and I will give thee a crown of life.”—Rev 2:10.

Class Druggists AND - (OTHERS. The better class of druggists, everywhere, are men of scientific attainments and high integrity, who devote their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with physicians’ prescriptions and scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines. They are the men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually includes all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts of a first-ciass pharmacy and the finest and best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories and remedial appliances. The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the medical profession, is usually their greatest reward for long years of study and many hours of daily toil. They all know that Syrup of Figs is an excellent laxative remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they are selling many millions of bottles annually to the well informed purchasers of the choicest remedies, and thejf always take pleasure in handing out the genuine article bearing the full name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of every package. They know that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and of weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or over-eating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as Syrup of Figs, and they are glad to Bell it because it gives universal satisfaction. Owing to the excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and the immense demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, but there are individual druggists to he found, here and there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles of the profession and whose greed gets the better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate to recommend and try to sell the imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations sometime# have the name—“ Syrup of Figs”—or‘“Fig Syrup” and of some piratical concern, or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the package, but they never have the full name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of the package. The imitations should be rejected because they are injurious to the system. In order to sell the imitations they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes off on a customer a preparation under the name of “Syrup of Figs” or "Fig Syrup,” which does not bear the full name of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package, he is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his establishment, whether it be large or small, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation and and deception in one case he will do so with other medicinal agents, and in the filling of physicians’ prescriptions, and should be avoided by every one who valueB health and happiness. Knowing that the great majority of druggists are reliable, we supply the immense demand for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions exist it is necessary to inform the public of the facts, in order that all may declin’e or return any imitation which may be sold to them. If it does not bear the full name of the Company—- California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return the article and to demand the return of your money, and in future go to one of the better class of druggists who will Bell you what you wish and the best of everything in his line at reasonable prices.

Uncle Remus was once asked to give his views 011 the historical novel. It was at the time when that class of literature was quite the rage. His reply is at once ■ucteristio and unique, is what Mr. Harris said: “Now, if you had asked me Something about the brands of pot-liquor, whether that made from eollards has a finer flavor than that made from cab bages, or whether the addition of dumplings is calculated to take away all degrees of comparison, novel. “ T li e technically historical novel has been much talked about, but the truth is that a novelist who undertakes to reproduce his tory is certain to have a fall, un less ho belongs to the class of Scott and Pumas—men who were able to twist history about to suit their purposes. “Really, I should like to say something interesting on a subject that seems to be interesting to the newspapers.
