ANOTHER GRAND REPORT FROM
HIS MAJESTY'S DOCKYARD.
Where Upward, of 10,000 Mfin Are Cea.
Fome time ngo the Portsmouth Times
and Naval Gazette published a most
thrilling and remarkable experience of
the wiie of Mr. Frederick Payne, him
self connected with the Portsmouth
Dockyard for many years. The report
produced a great sensation, not only in
Portsmouth, but throughout the coun
try, being considered of sufficient im
portance for reproduction and editorial
comment by the leading metropolitan
and Provincial Press of England, as
allowing the marvelous powers which
8t. Jacobs Oil possesses as a cure for
Rheumatism, its application having
effected a perfect cure in the case of
Mrs. Payne, after having been a help

leg turned black from his knee to his
toes. The Dr. aid it would he months
before he could put his foot to the
ground, and it was doubtful whether he
would ever get proper use of his leg
A few dnvs after the accident I ha-' a
book left at the door telling about St.

chemist, Mr. Arthur Cres-well, 378

that date, my husband could not only
stand, but could even walk about, and
in three weeks from the time I first

DnllcatPly formpd and gently reared, women will
find, in all the seasons of their lives, as maids or wives
or mothers, that the one simple, wholesome remedy
which acts gently and pleasantly and naturally, and
which may be used with truly beneficial effects, under
any conditions, when the system needs a laxative is
Syrup of Figs. It is well known to be a simple com
bination of the laxative and carminative principles of
plants with pleasant, aromatic liquids, which are
agreeable and refreshing to the taste mid acceptable
to the system when its gentle cleansing is desired.
Many of tho ills from which women suffer are of
a transient nature and do not come from any organic
trouble and it U pleasant to know that they yield so
promptly to the beneficial effects of Kyrup of Figs,
but when anything more than a laxative is needed it
is best to consult the family physician and to avoid
the old-time cathartics and loudly advertised nos
trums of the present day. When one needs only to
remove the strain, the torpor, the congestion, or
similar ills, which attend npon a constipated condi
tion of the system, use the true and gentle remedy
Syrup of Figs arid enjoy freedom from the depres
sion, the aches and pains, colds and headaches, which
are due to inactivity of the bowels.
Only those who buy the genuine Syrnp of Figs
can hope to get its beneficial effects and as a guar
antee of the excellence of the remedy the full name
of the company California Fig Syrup Co. is
printed on the front of every package and without
it any preparation offered as Syrup of Figs Is fraud
ulent and should be declined. To those who know the
quality of this excellent laxative, the offer of any
substitute, when Syrup of Figs is called for, is
always resented by a transfer of patronage to some
first-class drug establishment, where they do not
recommend, nor sell false brands, nor Imitation
remedies. The genuine article may be bought of all
