left on the bone. If the fish feels
slimy, rub It well with a little salt
Scales should be scraped oft with a
knife, scraping from the tail upward,
and tho fish well rinsed afterward. In
cutting off the fins cut from the tall
upward. In taking out the eyes, If the
skin over them Is tough, cut it first
with a pair of scissors, and then the
eye can easily be pulled out, or pushed
out from the Inside. Fish that have a
strong, muddy flavor should be soaked
In suit and water before being cooked.
Thorough cleaning of fish Is essential
to Its wholesomeness.

nerves weaken, and half their com
plaints are nervous, Imaginary ones,
that hard work would cure. I know !
a doctor who has a patient of this type
a big, robust woman, who is never j
without a list of ailments as long as
her arm.
"The last time she sent for the doc-
tor he lost patience with her. As she
was telling him how she was suffering
from rheumatism, sore throat, nervous
Indigestion, heartburn, pains In the
back of the head and what not, he In
terrupted her. .

The Well Informed of the World.
A vast fund of personal knowledge is really essential to the achievement of
the highest excellence in any field of human effort ' J
A Knowledge of Forms, Knowledge of Functions and
Knowledge of Products are all of the utmost value and in questions of
life and health when a true and wholesome remedy is desired it should be remem
bered that Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup Co, is an ethical product which has met with the approval of the most em
inent physicians and gives universal satisfaction, because it is a remedy of
Known, Quality. Known Excellence and Known Com
ponent Parts and has won the valuable patronage of millions of the Well
Informed of the rorld, who know of their own personal knowledge and from
actual use that it is the first and best of family laxatives, for which no extra
vagant or unreasonable claims are made.
This valuable remedy ha been long and favorably
known under the name of Syrup of Figs and has attained to
world-wide acceptance as the most excellent family laxative. As
its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well known
to physicians and the Well Informed of the world to be the
best we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of '
Figs and Elixir of Senna as more fully descriptive of
the remedy, but doubtlessly it will always be called
lor by the shortet name of Syrup of Figs and to get
its beneficial effects, always note, when purchasing,
the full name of the Company California Fig
