says Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky., In
writing of her experience with Cardui, the woman’s
tonic. She says further: “Before I began to use
Cardui, my back and head would hurt so bad, 1
thought the pain would kill me. I was hardly able
to do any of my housework. After taking three bottles
of Cardui, 1 began to feel like anew woman. I soon
gained 35 pounds, and now, I do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
1 wish every suffering woman would give
The Woman's Tonic
a trial I still use Cardui when I feel a little bad,
and it always does me good.”
Headache, backache, side ache, nervousness,
tired, worn-out feelings, etc., are sure signs of woman
ly trouble. Signs that you need Cardui, the woman’s
tonic. You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardui
for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing
women for more than fifty years.

If cross, feverish, sick, bil

Every mother realizes, after
giving “California Syrup of Figs,”
that this is their ideal laxative,
because they love its pleasant
taste and it thorougly cleanses
the tender little stomach, liver
and bowels without griping.
When cross, irritable, feverish
or breath is bad, stomach sour,
look at the tongue, Mother! If
coated, give a teaspoonful of this
harmless ‘‘fruit laxative,” and
in a few hours all the foul, con
stipated waste, sour bile and undi
gested food passes out of the
bowels, and you have a well,
playful child again. When its lit
tle system is full of cold, throat
sore, has stomach-ache, diarrhoea

good “inside cleansing” should
always be the first treatment
Milions of mothers keep “Cali
fornia Syrup of Figs” handy;
they know a teaspoonful today
saves a sick child tomorrow.
Ask your druggist for a 50-cent
bottle of “California Syrup of
Figs,” which has directions for
babies, children of all ages and
grown-ups printed on the bottle.
