ORIGIN OF THE DAY AT HOME.
Started by Mlle De Scudery In Paris
in the Eighteenth Century.
The feminine custom of having a
flay at home originated in France in
the beginning of the eighteenth cen
tury with Mile, de Scudery, an author
ess and a woman whom all the great
personages of old Paris delighted to
Mile, de Scudery was as busy as
nny modern American woman, and
for that reason, being also a wise
woman, she organized her activities.
She had two days a week at home.
Her Saturdays became historic, for it
was then she received the brilliant
men and beautiful women who made
famous the salon of the Hotel Ram
bouillet. On Tuesdays she received
her intimate friends.
Many French women of the great
world of the present time have two
days at home a week, says Harper's
Bazar; others receive certain hours,
say, until 3 in the afternoon, every
day in the week, while women of the
middle class who have many serious
occupations permit themselves the
pleasure of seeing their friends at
home but one day in two weeks.
In any case French women es
sentially preserve the charm of the
custom established by Mlle, de
Scudery, who achieved her success by
simple means which are quite within
the reach of every American woman,
i Her small house in Paris stood in a
! garden full of fruit-bearing trees sur
! rounded by tall shrubs and bushes.
I of all the
fine arte—was "littéraire et galante,"
gay and gossipy, according to the
character of those present, and if the
weather was fine they took a turn in
the garden gathering and eating cher
ries when the fruit was in season. In
short, the day was truly and in all
simplicity a day at home.
The average American woman lives
always under the oppressive shadow
of the unexpected guest; whether she
is making preserves, writing books,
shampooing her hair or spanking the
baby she is always under the strain
of the fear that somebody will drop
in; and such is the open door policy
of American hospitality, particularly
in small towns, to be m the house
and not to receive the unexpected
guest is to convert a friend into an
enemy. What woman in what small
American town cannot provide as
much for herself and her friends? Let
her try it and see what benefits she
will reap from thus ordering her re
lations with the world.

One of the Important Duties of Physicians and
the Well-Informed of the World
is to learn as to the relative standing and reliability of the leading manufactur
ers of medicinal agents, as the most eminent physicians are the most careful as to
the uniform quality and perfect purity of remedies prescribed by them, and it is well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed generally that the California Fig Syrup
Co., by reason of its correct methods and perfect equipment and the ethical character of
its product, has attained to the high standing in scientific and commercial circles which
is accorded to successful and reliable houses only, and, therefore, that the name of the
Company has become a guarantee of the excellence of its remedy.
TRUTH AND QUALITY
appeal to the Well-Informed in every walk of life and are essential to permanent suc
cess and creditable standing, therefore we wish to call the attention of all who would
enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it involves the question of right
living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is best each hour
of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may be made to contribute
to that end and the use of medicines dispensed with generally to great advantage, but
as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at the
proper time, the California Tig Syrup Co. feels that it is alike important to present
truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won
the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-informed,because
of the excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac
ture, which is known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only.
This valuable remedy h î been long and favorably known under the name of—
Syrup of Figs and has at ta ied to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its p, re laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well -informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have 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 name of Syrup of Figs—and to get its beneficial effects always
note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company — California Fig Syrup Co.—
plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for — Syrup of
Figs— or by the full name—Svrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna—as—Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna —is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. and the same heretofore known by the name — Syrup of Figs — which has given
satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists throughout
the United States, in original packages of one size only, the regular price of which
is fifty cents per bottle.
Every bottle is sold under the general guarantee of the Company, filed with the
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C., that the remedy is not adulterated or
misbranded within the meaning of the Food and Drugs Act, June 30th, 1906.
