than do meats, and in a more

the qualities necessary to satisfy

The better clafla of druggists, everywhere, .ire men of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devote their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and
purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with physicians’ prescriptions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines.
They are the men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually includes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts of a first-class pharmacy and the finest and
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories and remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the medical profession, is usually their greatest
reward for long years of study and many hours of daily toil. They all know that Syrup of
Figs is an excellent laxative remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they
are selling many millions of bottles annually to the well informed purchasers of the choicest
remedies, and they always take pleasure in banding out the genuine article bearing the full
name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of every package.
They know that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
over-eating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and they are glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to the excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and the
immense demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, but there are
individual druggists to be found, here and there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles
of the profession and whose greed gets the better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell tho imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes have the name—“ Syrup of Figs”—or “Fig Syrup” and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the package, but they never have the full name of
the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of the package. The imitations
should he rejected because they are injurious to the system. In order to sell the imitations
they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes
off on a customer a preparation under the name of “Syrup of Figs” or “Fig Syrup,” which
doe3 not bear the full name of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package,
ho is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it he larcre or small, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation and
and deception in one case he will do so with other medicinal agents, and in the filling of
physicians’ prescriptions, and should be avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that the great majority of druggists are reliable, we supply the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every
where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions
exist it is necessary to inform the public of the facts, in order that all may decline or return
any imitation which may he sold to them. If it does not hear the full name of the Company—
California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on thejront of every package, do not hesitate to return the
article and to demand the return of your money, and in future go to one of tfie better class of
druggists who will sell you what you wish and the best of everything in his line at reasonable prices.
