OF Personal knowledge is the winning factor in the culminating contests of this competitive age and when of ample character it places its fortunate possessor in the front ranks of The Well Informed of the World. A vast fund of personal knowledge is really essential to the achievement of the highest excellence in any field of human effort. A Knowledge of Forms, Knowledge of Functions and Knowl edge of Products are all of the utmost value and in questions of life and health when a true and wholesome remedy is desired it should be remembered that Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co., is an ethical product which has met with the approval of the most eminent physicians and gives universal satisfaction, because it is a remedy of Known Quality, Known Excellence and Known Component Parts and has won the valuable patronage of millions of the Well Informed ot the world, who know of their own personal knowledge and from actual use that it is the hrst and best of faimily laxatives, for which no extravagant or unreasonable claims are made. This valuable remedy has -been long and favorably known under the name of—Syrup of Figs—and has attained to world wide acceptance as the most excellent family laxative. As its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well known to physicians and the Well Informed of the world to be the best we have iser (f adopted the more elaborate name of—Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna— as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it will always be called for by the shorter of Syrup of Figs—and to get its beneficial effects, always note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup -.-Co. printed on the front of every package, |p whether you call for Syrup of Figs by the full name —Syrup of as -y$ -or CAUFORNIAffe Figs and Elixir of Senna. rag?WlSAN FRANCISCO.CAL., Louisville, ky.
