With a better understanding of the transient nature of the many physi cal il!s which vanish beforo proper efforts?gentle efforts? pleasant efforts?rightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge that so many forms of illness are not due to any actual disease, but simply to a consti pated condition of tho systern, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, promptly removes. That is why it is the only remedy with millions of families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the fact that it is tho only remedy which promotes internal cleanliness, withcut debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is, therefore, all-im portant, in order to get its beneficial effects, to purchase and note that you have the genuine article, which is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only. It is pleasant and refreshing to the taste, and acts gently yet promptly on the kidneys, liver and bowels, cleanses the systern effectually, dispels colds, headaches and fevers and assists in overcoming habitual constipa? tion permanently, also biliousness and the many ills resulting therefrom. The great trouble with all other purgatives and aperients is not that they fail to act when a single dose is taken, but that they act too violently and invariably tend to produce a habit of body requtring constantly augmented doses. Children enjoy the pleasant taste and gentle action of Syrup of Ftgs and Elixir of Senna, the ladies find it delightful and beneficial y.henever a laxative remedy is needed, and business men pronounce it invaluable, as it may be taken without interfering with business and does not gripe nor nauseate. When buying note the name, California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package.
