With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts—gentle efforts —pleasant efforts—
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative. Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millionsuf families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness' without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle. which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be cc.tnmended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-inforrqed everywhere. Syrup of
Rgs stands highest and is most largely

This is a boy’s composition on
girls. He says: “Girls are the
only folks that have their own way
every time. Girls is of several
thousand kinds, and sometimes
one girl can be like several girls all
at once if she wants to do any
thing. They are also like kittens;
they go singing and purring about
until you stroke them the wrong;
way, and then they get mad. This
is all I know about giris, and

about them the better off I am.”
