DELICIOUS "SYRUP OF FIGS" FOR A
BAD LIVER OR SLUGGISH BOWELS
This gentle, effective fruit laxative thoroughly cleans
your stomach, liver and 30 feet of bowels of sour
bile, poisons, gases and clogged-up waste
A harmless cure for sick headache,
for biliousness, for a sour, gassy, dis
ordered stomach, for ponstipatlon. In
digestion, coated tongue, sallowness,
pimples take delicious Syrup or Figs.
For the cause of all these troubles lies
in -a torpid liver- and sluggish condi
tion of your thirty feet of bowels.
A tcaspoonful of Syrup of Figs to
night means all poisonous waste mat
ter, the undigested, fermenting food
and sour bile, gently moved on and out
of your system by morning, without
griping, nausea, or weakness. It seems
a cheery day tomorrow many bright
Please don't think of gentle, effective
Syrup of Figs as a physic. Don't think
you are drugging yourself, for luscious
fiss. senna, and aromatics cannot-injure
This remarkable fruit preparation Is
a wonderful stomach. liver, and bowel
cleanser, regulator, and tonic, the safest
and most positive ever devised. '
The day of violent purgatives, such
as calomel, pills, salts, and castor oil
Is past. They 'were all wronir. You
get relief, but at what a cost! They
acted by flooding the bowels with
fluids, .but these fluids were digestive
Juices. ' Syrup of Figs embody only
harmless laxatives, which act in a
natural way. It docs what right food
would do what eating lots of fruit
and what plenty of exercise will do
for the liver, stomach, and bowels.
Be sure you get the - old reliable and
genuine. Ask your druggist for the
full name. "Syrup of Figs and Elixir
of Senna." prepared by The California
Fig Syrup Company. Hand back with
scorn any Fig Syrup imitation recom
mended as "Just as good."

There is Your Protection !
ALMOST daily the newspapers report some
J- incident in which the telephone has demon
strated its protective value. In one case
the telephone has called the fire department in
the nick of time; in another it has frightened away
a burglar; in still another it has summoned medi
cal aid when the least delay might have meant,
loss of life.
When you consider the wonderful convene
ence of the telephone for ordinary purposes, and.
its inestimable value in these cases of emergency,
ask yourself the question, "Can I afford to be
without a telephone?"
Perhaps you have a Telephone,
' have you ?

Members of the Congressional party
who went to Panama during the holi
days will produce a "directory" of the
trip, the men. women and girls each
writing his or her biography. A limit
of 300 words will be set on each of these
little essays In what has been called
"the most agreeable form of fiction.'
This autobiographical effort was de
termined upon at a reunion of the
Panama party at the home of Mrs.
Champ Clark, wife of the Speaker, yes
terday, and today some of the Congress
men and their wives are busy wrltln&rof
The men are more expert at this than
the wemen. It Is asserted, because the
Senators and Congressmen often have
done beautiful hand-made biographies
of themselves for the Congressional
Directory. It Is doubtful If Speaker
Clark and Senator Polndexter, for In
stance, will recite any thrilllngly new
facts, but Perry Belmont, a member of
the party, never has told in print of
some of his achlevemenn.
Likewise one Congressman-elect, Mau-
I rice Connolly, of the Third Iowa db-
trist, could, ir ne would, write or win
ning golf championships. But since Mr.
Connolly got Into politics and. won the
first Democratic victory his district has
ever known, he has not been putting
the loud pedal on hia golfing proclivi
ties because, forsooth, out In Iowa some
of the natives are suspicions of golf
players. Mr. Connolly, If he brings
himself to write about himself at all,
is more likely to mention the fact that
he formerly was president of tho No
tional Carriage Manufacturers' Asso
ciation, an honor prized because of the
traditions of his family.
Miss Genevlevo Clark, daughter of
the Speaker, will be another of these
autoblographers. aiiss -iars nas not
lived many years eighteen being the
authorized figure but whatever she
writes about herself is certain to be
Interesting and modest.
