The Excellence of

[graphic]

is due not only to the originality and simplicity of the combination, but also to the care and skill with which it is manufactured by scientific processes known to the CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP Co. only, and we wish to impress upon all the importance of purchasing the true and original remedy. As the genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured by the CaliFORNIA FIG SYRUP Co. only, a knowledge of

that fact will assist one in avoiding the worthless imitations manufactured by other parties. The high standing of the CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP Co. with the medical profession, and the satisfaction which the genuine Syrup of Figs has given to millions of families, makes the name of the Company a guarantee of the excellence of its remedy. It is far in advance of all other laxatives, as it acts on the kidneys, liver, and bowels without irritating or weakening them, and it does not gripe nor nauseate. In order to get its beneficial effects, please remember the name of the Company

Company

“For six years I was a victim of dys. pepsia in its worst form. I could eat nothing but milk toast, and at times my stomach would not retain and digest even that. Last March 1 began taking CASCARETS and since then I have steadily improved, until I am as well as I ever was in my life.”
