THE CHILDREN ENJOY
Life out of doors and out of the gameswhich they play and the enjoy
ment which they receive and the efforts which they make , comes the
greater part of that healthful development which is so essential to their
happiness when grown. When a laxative is needed the remedy which is
given to them to cleanse and sweeten and strengthen the internal org-ans
on which it acts , should be such as physicians would sanction , because its
component parts are known to be wholesome and the remedy itself free from
every objectionable quality. The one remedy which physicians and parents ,
well-informed , approve and recommend and which the little ones enjoy ,
because of its pleasant flavor , its gentle action and its beneficial effects , is
Syrup of Figs and for the same reason it is the only laxative which should
be used by fathers and mothers.
c Syrup of Figs is the only remedy which acts gently , pleasantly and
naturally without griping , irritating , or nauseating and which cleanses the
system effectually , without producing that constipated habit which results
from the use of the old-time cathartics and modern imitations , and against * * . .
which the children should be so carefully guarded. If you would have them
grow to manhood and womanhood , strong , healthy and happy , do not give
them medicines , when medicines are not needed , and when nature needs r' * -i.-'j . : ' ' >
assistance in the way of a laxative , give them only the simple , pleasant and
gentle Syrup of Figs.
Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the combination of the
laxative principles of plants with pleasant aromatic syrups and juices , but
also to our original method of manufacture and as you value the health of
the little ones , do not accept any of the substitutes which unscrupulous deal
ers sometimes offer to increase their profits. The genuine article may be p
I1 if bought anywhere of all reliable druggists at fifty cents per bottle. Please
to remember , the full name of the Company

WHERE GEMS CAME FROM.
Mystery Surrounds Original Reposi
tories of Many Precious Stones.
The natives of India , up y the be
ginning of the eighteen century , re
ferred to rock crystal as an "uripf
diamond. " At that time India was
thought to be the only land wh'cli pro
Sliced that precious stone. It was not
therefore , until the discovery of In
ilia that the diamond was known to us
Tet as far back as 500 B. C. a "dirac
tic history" of precious stones was
written , and in Pliny's time the supplj
must have been plentiful , as lie wrote.
"We drink out of a mass of gems ,
and our drinking vessels are formed of
emeralds. " We are also told that Ne
ro aided his weak sight by spectacles
made of emeralds.
But it is very difficult to determine
whence all the gems came , as discover-
ors took care to leave no record. The
nations who traded in them were
afraid of there whereabouts being
known , and oven the most ancient
merchants would not disclose any den"
3ihv locale. All srrts ( if myths have
iccordingly sprung up concerning tlit
origin of gems. "Diamond' ' was tin
