GIVE "SYRUP OF FIy8
TO CONSTIPATED CHILD
Delicious "Fruit Laxative" can't harm
tender little Stomachb, Liver
Look at the tongue, mother! If
coated, your little one's stomach, liver
and bowels need cleansing at once.
When peevish, cross, listless, doesn't
sleep, eat or act naturally, or is fever
ish, stomach sour, breath bad; has sore
throat, diarrhoea, full of cold, give a
teaspoonful of "California Syrup of
Figs," and in a few hours all the foul,
constipated waste, undigested fod and
lsonr bile gently moves out of Its little
bowels without griping, and you have
a well, playful child again. Ask your
druggist for a bottle of "California
Syrup of Figs," which contains full
directions for babies, children of all
ages and for grown-ups.

"For five or six years," sihe continu

"I wouldn't have believed it if any

has done for me. Soon after I started
taking it I began to eat better, sleep
like a baby and feel just fine and my
steady improvement has simply been
wonderful.' I have thrown away all
my other medicines and will stick to
Tanlac, for I think it is the finest med.
