TILE AEGUS, THUESDAT, 3IARCH 17, 1904.
The better class of drngcist3, everywhere, are men of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devot their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and
purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with physicians' prescriptions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines.
They are the men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually includes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts of a lirst-class pharmacy and the finest and
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories and remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the medieal jrofession, j3 usually their greatest
reward for long years of study and many hour3 of daily toil. They all know that Syrup of
' Figs is an excellent laxative remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they
are selling many millions of bottles annually to the well informed purchasers of the choicest
remedies, and they always take pleasure in handing out the genuine article bearing the full
name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package.
Thsy.knovr that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowel?, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
over-eating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and they aro glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to tho excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and the
immense demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, but there are
individual druggist3 to be found, here and there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles
of the profession and whose greed get3 the better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell the imitations in ordor to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes have the name " Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup" and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the package, but they never have the full name of
the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package. The imitations
should be rejected because they are injurious to the system. In order to sell the imitations
they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes
off on n customer a preparation under the name of "Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup," which
does not bear the full name of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package,
he is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it be large or small, for if the dealer resorts to .misrepresentation and
and deception in one case he will do so with, other medicinal agents, and in the filling of
physicians' prescriptions, and should be avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that the great majority of druggists are reliable, we supply the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every
where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions
exist it is necessary to inform the public of the facts, in order that all may decline or return
any imitation which may be sold to them. If it does not bear the full name of the Company
California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return the
article and to demand the return of your money, and in future go to one of the better class of
d ruggists who will seJI you what you wish and the best of everything in his line at reasonable prices.

A Word to Sufferers from Disease
The ap;e of miracles has past. We
know that evt-rv tiling moves by what
the scientists call immutable laws.
They are unvarying from everlasting?
to everlasting-. These laws rule alike
the heavenly spheres and the actions
of spheres. Man is particularly sus
ceptible to infractions of these laws
ami the usual result is disease or in
jury or death. It is, a law that if you
overeat that you will suffer. It is a
law that if you fall tlown in front of a
moinj? train you will suffer. And all
of the diseases that aflliet mankind
come from the conscience or uncon
scious infraction of some of the lawn
that govern the universe. These dis
eases may be hereditary or acquired.
They may be the result of law break
ing? by some ancester in the remote
past. For the "sins of the father are
visited upon the children even unto
the third and fourth generation." lint
if nature provides n penalty for the in
fraction of the least of her laws she
has also provided a remedy. For years
I have made a careful study of
disease, its cause and effect. Anil I
have made a YONl)KKFUL, D1SCOV-
I have discovered that Nature's rem
edy for a very larj?e number of dis
eases is Electricity. I use electrodes
upon the nerve centers of the human
system and nature does the rest. If
you are suffering? from any FEMALE
WEAKNESS, have a tumor, cancer or
OOITliE, a victim of KIDNEY or
LIVEIi TKOUliLES, CONSTIPATION,
LOSS OF ENERGY, CONSUMPTION
a myriad of diseases, come and s-
me. Consultation is free and I can t
you whether ur not I can be of assisi
tance to you, or whether your disease
is in too advanced a stage for any
assistance whatever. Do not delay.
My method of treatment is perfectly
rational and relief is almost instan
taneous. I guarantee a en re in all curable
e:tes and cure hundreds of others
