failures in lift- is young men's neglect
of the most important of nil studies?
namely, tbeilisolvcs, their aptitudes,

cialism and to demand of the new pope
radical reforms, such us the autonomy
of the bishops uud the improvement of
the condition of the lower olergy.
Brings comfort and improvement and
tends to personal enjoyment when
rightly used. The many, who live bet?
ter 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 tho
remedy, Syrup of Figs.
Its excellence is clue to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas?
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beneficial properties of a perfect lax?
ative ; effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling colds, headaches nnd fevers
and permanently curing constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it nets on the Kid?
neys, Liver nud Bowels without weak?
ening them nnd it is porfectly free frott
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drug?
gists in f>Oc and $1 bottles, but it is msja
ufnetured by tho California Fig Syrup
Co. only, whose name is printed on ev*ry,
