Tho.bettor olaeg of druggists, everywhere, nro mon of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devoto their lives to thowelfaro 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 ninny excellent remedies, but
always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines.
They aro (he men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually includea
all standard romedics and corresponding adjuncts of a first-class pharmacy and the finest and
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accesorios and remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of tho benefits
conferrod upon their patrona 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
Pigs is an excellent laxativo remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, nnd therefore they
aro soiling many millions of bottles annually to tho well informed purchasers of tho choicest
romedics, and they always take plonsuro in handing out the genuine article bearing the full
namo of tho Company?California Fig Syrup Co.?printed on the front of every package.
Thoy know that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
?f weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
over-oating, that thcro'is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and they nro glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to tho exccllenco of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives' and tho
immense demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, but there aro
individual druggists to bo found, hero and there, who do not maintain the fh'gnity and principles
of tho profession and whoso greed gets tho better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to seil tho imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimos havo the. name?" Syrup of Figs"?or "Fig Syrup" and of somo pirn tieni concprn,
or fictitious fig eyrup company, printed on tho packape, but they never have the full name of
tho 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 tho namo of "Syrup of Figs" ^or-..'?Fig Syrup," which
does not bear tho full namo of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package,
he is attempting to deceive and mislead tho patron who has been ?? unfortunate as to enter bis
establishment, whether it bo large or small, for if the dealer reports ??...misrepresentation and
and deception in one case ho will do so with other medicinal flgeRta,5' and in tho filling of
physicians' prescriptions, and should be avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that tho great majority of druggists aro reliable, we'supply the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every?
where, in original packagee only, at tho 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 decline or return
any imitation which may be sold to them. If it does not boar the full name of the Company?
California Fig Syrup Co.?printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return the
