S. C. says: "For years my wife suf
fered intensely from dyspepsia, compli
cated with a torpid liver, until she lost

she tried Ekctric Bitters, which helped
her at once, and finally made her en

healthy." Hartz & Ullemeyer, drug

If more than ordinary skill in playing brings the honors of the
game to the v. inning p!ayer, so exceptional merit in a remedy
ensures the commendation of the well informed, and as a rea
sonable amount of outdoor life and recreation is conducive to
the health ar.d strength, so does a perfect laxative tend to one's
improvement in cases of constipation, biliousness, headaches,
etc. It is ail important, however, in selecting a laxative, to
choose one of known quality and excellence, like the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup Co., a laxative which sweetens and cleanses the system
effectually, when a laxative is needed, without any unpleasant
after effects, as it acts naturally and gently on the internal
organs, simply assisting nature when nature needs assistance,
without griping, irritating or debilitating the internal organs in
any way, as it contains nothing of an obj'ectionable or injurious
nature. As the plants which are combined with the figs in
the manufacture of Syrup of Figs are known to physicians to
act most beneficially upon the system, the remedy has met
with their general approval as a family laxative, a fact well
worth considering in making purchases.
It is because of the fact that SYRUP OF FIGS
is a remedy of known quality and excellence, and approved by
physicians that has led. to its use by so many millions of well
informed people, who would not use any remedy of uncertain
quality or inferior reputation. Every family should have a
bottle of the genuine on hand at all times, to use when a
laxative remedy is required. Please to remember that the
genuine Syrup of Figs is for sale in bottles of one size
only, by all reputable druggists, and that full name of the
company Uamornia t-ig byrup Co., is plainly printed on
the front of every package. Regular price, 50c per bottle.
