remain here permanently.
Brings comfort and improvement and
tends to personal enjoyment when
"ightly used. The many, who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, \vith
less expenditure, by more promptly
adapting tho world's best products to
the needs of physical being, will attest
the value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the
remedy, Syrup of Figs.
Its excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beneficial properties of a perfect lax
ative; effectually cleansing the system
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
and permanently curing constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions nnd
met with the approval of the medical
profession because it acts on the Kid
neys, Liver and Bowels without weak
ening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drug
gists in 50c and 81 bottles, but it is man
ufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co.only, whose name is printed on every
package, also the name, Syrup of Figs,

accept any substitute if offered.
