NOT IN THE SCHOOL
CircularM on Consumption Sbould be
Given Ohildreu lr
KNOWLEDGE IS IMPORTANT
Third Edition Prepared by State
Board of Health Has
The widespread interest in consump
tion could probably be in no way so
clearly demonstrated as by the remark
able demands that have been made up
on the state board of health for the
circular on the cause and prevention
of the disease, originally issued early
in July and now appearing in a third
Not only has the demand throughout
the state exceeded every expectation,
but health authorities and individuals
in practically every state in the union
have requested copies in greater or
smaller numbers, while railroad com
panies and large employers of labor
have asked for thousands of general
distribution. In only one channel has
interest been apparently lacking, and
that has been among the officials of
the public schools of Illinois, a class
wliich would have been presumed to
be more vitally interested than any
other, since education and a moderate
amount of instruction will do more to
check the spread of consumption than
any other disease. However, while the
officials of every county in the state
were notified that this circular was to
be had in any quantity desired, not one
request for school use has been re
ceived by the board.
Iiiitnr(iin-- of firrulnr.
Tho importance of this circular in
the education of the people is quite
clearly indicated in the opinion given
out by the state board of health of
Iowa in its last monthly publication, in
which it is stated that "we regard it
as the most complete and compact
statement of the cause and prevention
of this too-universal and fatal disease
that we have ever seen. If a copy of
it could be put into every home in the
land and was read and its precepts
heeded, consumption would be reduced
5D per cent in ten years."
In the third edition Secretary J. A.
Egan reiterates the claim made in the
former edition, that consumption can
be cured in Illinois, but he goes fur
ther in substantiating this claim with
tho most convincing evidence. Atten
tion is called to the consumptive hos
pitals in Massachusetts, New York.
Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, where
the results of treatment have been most
gratifying, and to the recently proven
statistics showing that at the Massa
chusetts state sanitarium the results
have been better than in the arid re
gions of the west. That Illinois af
fords climatic conditions and eleva
tions equal to any of those eastern in
stitutions is Dr. Egan's contention,
based upon most careful and painstak
ing investigations and comparisons.
T(iIU of (' iiirlMi ii.
A table showing the comparisons of
climate and soil of an Illinois town,
selected at random, with Rutland
Mass.; Saranac Lake, New York, and
Philadelphia, the site of the most suc
cessful of eastern sanitaria, indicates
that Ilinois possesses more of the es
sentials for successful out-of-door treat
ment than any of these points; less
rainfall, more sunshine and more mod
orate average range of temperature,
while the barometric conditions, soil,
elevation and ground contour are quite
as satisfactory in every way, justify
ing the conclusion that Illinois con
sumptives may be treated at home
with excellent chances of recovery and
under conditions as favorable to that
end as in other stat?s.
Tho section of the circular on the
care of consumptives to prevent the
spread of the disease to others and to
check the progress of the disease in
the individual, and on the general su
pervision of the disease, have been re
written and much new and valuable
information has been added.
Within the past few days, a wealthy
citizen of Illinois, whose interest had
been aroused by the crusade of the
state board of health against consump
tion, offered the sum of $10,000 to the
board to be used in the establishment,
of a consumptive hospital in the state,
as advocated by this circular.

Iigi Class Druiggist
The better class of tlrujrpists, everywhere, are men of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devote their lives to the welfare of their follow 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 ollicinal 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 usuallv includes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts of a first-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 knowledse of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the medical profession, is usuallv their greatest
reward for long years of study and many hours of daily toil. Thev 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 cut the genuine article bearing the full
name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the iront of every package.
They know that in cases of colds and headaches attended bv biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowels, arising from irrecular habits, indigestion, or
over-eating, that there is no other remedy so peasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and they are glad to soil it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to the excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and the
immense demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, Init there are
individual druggists to be found, here and there, who do not maintain the dienit v and principles
of the profession and whose greed gets the better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell tho imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes have the name u Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup?' and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the pnckage,biit 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 nna it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes
off on a customer a preparation under the name of ''Syrup of Figs',' or "Fig Syrr.p," which
does not bear the full name of the California Fig Svrut Co. printed on the front of the naekncrp
he is attempting to deceive end mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it be larce 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 Sjrup Co. printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return the
article and to demand the return of j'our money, and in future go to one of the better class of
