To Every Home
as with Joyous hearts and smiling face3.they romp and play when In health and
how conducive to health the games In which they indulge, the outdoor life they
enjoy, the cleanly, regular habits they should be taught to form and the wholesome
diet of which they should partake. How tenderly their health should be preserved,
not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an injuri
ous or objectionable nature, and if at anytime a remedial agent is required, to assist
nature, only those of known excellence should be used ; remedies which are pure
and vholesome and truly beneficial in effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy,
Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. Syrup of Figs has
come Into general favor in many millions of well informed families, whose estimate
of its quality and excellence is based upon personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs has also met with the approval of physicians generally, because
they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We inform all reputa
ble physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs, obtained, by an
original method, from certain plants known to them to act most beneficially and
presented in an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are
used to promote the pleasant taste ; therefore it is not a secret remedy and hence
we are free to refer to all well informed physicians, who do not approve of patent
medicines and never favor indiscriminate self-medication.
Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Flg3
always has the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. plainly
printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale in bottles of one size
only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent size, or having
printed thereon the name of any other company, do not accept it. If you fail to get
the genuine you will not get Its beneficial effects. Every family should always have
a bottle on hand, as it is equally beneficial for the parents and the children,
whenever a laxative remedy Is required.

Success in the Gulf Coast Country
Here is an example of what YOU could do.
150 Bushels of Corn from
One Acre in 15 Months
Mr. John Closncr has a farm near Hidalgo, Texas. He
has raised three crops of corn on one piece of land in the last
fifteen months. Each crop yielded not less than fifty bushels
to the acre.
He docs not have to wait for the ground to thaw in the Spring.
Almost as soon as he harvests one crop he can plant (or the next. He
is not afraid that the weather will be too wet or too dry or too cold. Ho
waters his land by irrigation and has an inexhaustible supply of water.
If you will write Mr. Closner at Hidalgo, Texas, ho will tell you
more about this country. There have been many other instances of
remarkable success in the Crulf Coast Country, of which I will be glad
to tell you upon request.
Wouldn't you like to have a small farm there where success does
not depend on uncertain weather with irregular rainfall ?
Vow the land is cheap and you can get it on easy terms. Twenty,
acres will cost you about $500. The cost of clearing it is about $5 an
acre. The cost of water for irrigation varies. You may want an
artesian well of your own; you may get water from sumo river; or you
may get it from your neighbor. But the cost is not great, and those
who have tried it have netted from the first crop a sum which has paid
all expenses and left a good surplus.
Take a trip down there and see for yourself-
that's the best way. Kvery first and third Tuesday
of each month, we will sell round-trip tickets to
any point in the Gulf Coast Country and return.
I l M at the following rates :
I -fesj-r Ff0m Chj
From St Louis, . .
From Kansas City,
From St. Paul,
From Minneapolis, - -
These tickets will be good 30 days and they
will permit you to stop over at any point. Low
rates for one way tickets on some days, also.
Let me send you our books describing the wonderful crops produced in this marvel,
ous country. Don't delay, write me to-day.
