His mother is to blame. How can-a boy get his lessons when his senses are dulled day.after day by dosing with sickening purgatives? When a child's bowels are stagnant they need help, of course. But not some drastic drag to upset the stomach, perhaps weaken the entire system; or form the laxative habit. On the right, parents will find a nappy solution of this problem: Here's a boy who gets good marks, has time and energy for play. He is never ill, hardly ever has so much as a cold. When he does show any symptoms of being sluggish, his mother knows just what to do. She gives him a little California Syrup of Figs--and that is all. It's a ' natural, fruity laxative that is agreeable to take, and its gentle laxative action comes from senna. Parents are urged to use just pure California Syrup of Figs. Be sure bottle says 'California'. EX-WARDEN INDICTED Seniors Hold Party.
