'As it may be con.ider-d a law in
vegetable physiology that nil plants
have a tendency during the germination
of their weds to develop in two diamet
rieiilly opposite directions, tho root and
the Ktem, the question arose, Might
not this direction be influenced or coun
teracted by submitting the germinating
seeds to iicum lit of electricity? Accord
ingly, a Benes of cxiicriuiciits were un
dertaken which wero carried out with

the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative. Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
ramed v with mi'Iionsof families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its benetteial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promot"s internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to gel us cene
ticial effects, to note when von pur

If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the svstem is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the moat skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with tbe
well-informed everywhere, hyrup of
