MADAM! IF YOU DON'T FEEL RIGHT
TAKE DELICIOUS "SYRUP OE FIGS"
Waste-clogged bowels, torpid liver and decaying food in
stomach cause the sick headache, gas, backache,
sallowness, biliousness and indigestion.
All women get bilious, headachy, and
constipated simply because they don't
exercise, enough. They don't eat coarse
food, or enough fruit and green vege
tables. Those are nature's ways of
keeping the liver and thirty feet of
bowels active; but very few women em-
floy them. The next best way Is dc
ghtful, fruity Hyrup of Figs.
Nearly all Ills of women can be orer
como with Hynip of Figs nlone. Thero
la no need to have sick headache, back
ache, dlzLlncss, stomach sour and full
of gases, bilious spells, sallowness, coat
ed tongue, bad breath, bad complexion,
nervousness und depression. Tho surest
and safest remedy Is one or two tea
spoonfuls of delicious Hyrup of Figs.
Try this tonlght-you'll feel splendid In
