CLOCK REVOLVES LIKE EARTH.
Wonderful Geographical Contrivance

Clock Which Tells Time in All Parts
of the World.
BHidont to ascertain at a glance the
mean time In any part of the world.
At first glance this wonderful clock
might be mistaken for one of the or
dinary globes used In schools, its prin
cipal novelty Is an Invisible clock,
which performs with absolute accuracy
and precision the duties ordinarily per
formed by the toucher in giving les
sons on the earth's diurnal motion, lati
tude and longitude and geography gen
erally. Some of ihe points claimed fop the
Kmpire clock are that It gives ihe cor
rect time all the world over; that It
demonstrates the ucttial rotation of the
earth on Its axis in M hours, and
shows nt a glance tho difference in
lime between nil places on th earth's
surface and the correct mean time nt
any town or place In either hemis
phere. The motive power Is a clock In
the base of the stand upon which the
globe Is mounted, and the apparatus
requires winding once u week.

as with joyous hearts and smiling faces they romp and play when in health and
how conducive to health the games In which they indulge, the outdoor life they
enjoy, the cleanly, regular habits they should be taught to form and the wholesome
diet of which they should partake. How tenderly their health should be preserved,
not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an injuri
ous or objectionable nature, and if at any time a remedial agent is required, to assist
nature, only those of known excellence should be used; remedies which are pure
and wholesome and truly beneficial in effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy,
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co.
Syrup bf Figs and Elixir of Senna has come into general favor in many millions of
well informed families, whose estimate of its quality and excellence is based upon
personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna has also met with the approval of physicians gen
erally, because they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We inform
all reputable.physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna, obtained by an original method, from certain plants known to them to act
most beneficially, and presented in an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Cal
Ifornian blue figs are used to promote the pleasant taste; therefore it is not a secret
remedy, and hence we are free to refer to all well informed physicians, who do
not approve of patent medicines and never favor Indiscriminate self-medication.
Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Figs
I and Elixir of Senna always has the full name of the Company California Fig
Syrup Co. plainly printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale In
bottles of one size only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent
size, or having printed thereon the name of any other company, do not accept It.
If you fail to get the genuine you will not get its beneficial effects. Every family
', should always have a bottle on hand, as it is equally beneficial for the parents and
the children, whenever a
