GIVE "SYRUP OF FIGS."
Children dearly love to take de-
Jllclous "Syrup of Figs" and noth

their tender little stomachs, liver
and 30 feet of bowels so promptly
Children get bilious and con

Then they get sick, the tongue is
coated, stomach sour, breath bad;
they don't eat or rest well; they
become feverish, cross, Irritable
and don't want to play. Listen
Mothers—for your child's sake
don't force the little one to swal
low nauseating castor oil, violent
calomel or harsh irritants like
Cathartic pills. A tea3poonful of
Syrup of Figs will have your child
smiling and happy again in just a
few hours. Syrup of Figs will
gently clean, sweeten and regu

active and move on and out of the
bowels all the constipated matter,
the sour bile, the foul, clogge*-.up
waste and poisons, without caus
ing cramps or griping.
With Syrup of Figs you are not
drugging or injuring your chil-
Iren. Being composed entirely of
luscious figs, senna and aromatlcs
it cannot be harmful. Full di
rections for children of all agea
and for grown-ups plainly printed

Ask your druggist for the full
name "Syrup of Figs and Elixir
of Senna" prepared by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. This Is the
delicious tasting, genuine old re
