Xith a better understanding of the
v ' transient nature of the many phys
ical ilia, which vanish before proper ef
fort gentle efforts pleasant efforts
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not dun 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
remedy with .i,' t of families, and is
everywhere esteeu.e so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects aoe due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
a: 1 important, in order to get ita bene
ficial effects, to note when yon pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system 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 ahonld have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere. Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
used and gives most general satisfaction.
