A laxative today saves a sick child
tomorrow. Children simply will not
take the time from play to empty their
bowels, which become clogged up with
waste, liver gets sluggish, stomach
Look at the tongue, mother I If
coated, or your child Is listless, cross,
feverish, breath bad, restless, doesn’t
eat heartily, full of cold or has sore
throat or any other children’s ail-
ment, give a teaspoonful of ‘‘Cali-
fornia Syrup of Figs,” then don’t
worry, because It Is perfectly harm-
less, and In a few hours all this con-
stipation poison, sour bile and fer-
menting waste will gently move out ot
the bowels, and you have a well, play-
ful child again. A thorough “Inside
cleansing” Is oftlmes all that Is neces-
sary. It should be the first treatment
given In any sickness.
Beware of counterfeit fig syrups.
Ask your druggist for a bottle of “Cal-
ifornia Syrup of Figs," which has
full directions for babies, children of
all 4 ages and for grown-ups plainly
printed on the bottle. Look carefully
and see that it Is made by the “Cali-
fornia Fig Syrup Company.”—Adv.

Insect control In orchards and vine-
yards Is largely effected by spraying,
and the needs of the fruitgrower In the
protection of his crops from the attack
of Insects and fungi have been the pre-
dominating features In the develop-
ment and excellence of our present
lists of Insecticides and our variety of
Although spraying Is one of the more
expensive of the several orchard op-
erations, the value of the crop Is so
greatly Increased thereby that It Is a
comparatively small Investment, the
expense amounting to only a fraction
of the returns directly due to the prac-
tice. Orchard spraying Is, In fact, an
exceedingly cheap form of Insurance.
It must not be Inferred, however,
that spraying operations are uniformly

IN ATTACK OF GRIP
USUALLY LEAVES KIDNEYS
IN WEAKENED CONDITION
On Account of Tight, Smothering
• Feeling, Caused From Aching
Lump in Stomach. Black-
Draught Relieved This
Kings Mountain, Ky.—Mrs. Belle
Jenklna, of this town, says: “For
about four years I suffered with stom-
ach trouble. It seemed like a lump
formed In my stomach and I could
hardly get my breath for the tight,
smothering feeling. This lump, or
whatever It was, ached constantly. I
couldn’t sleep at night I had no appe-
tite and I began falling off. I am nat-
urally a large woman but just weighed
135 lbs. I got so nervous I felt I could
not stand It any longer. I knew In my
condition I could not live long.
We had one doctor, he said Indiges-
tion.’ I took medicine from him, but
It did not seem to help me any. We
had another doctor. He said It was
•neuralgia of the stomach.’ I took his
medicine, still there was that aching
lump. Finally the doctor decided'it
might be a decayed tooth, and advised
me to hnve my teeth drawn, which I
did. I didn’t get any better.
One night my husband brought home
a sample of Black-Draught. I had been
unusually restless. I took the sample
next morning. I told him I believed I
felt better. He brought home a pack-
age, and two pneknges cured me and I
fully believe saved my life. I weigh
133 lbs. and am the picture of health."

Intimate knowledge of spraying mate-
rials, spraying machinery, and especial-
ly the why* and wherefore of spray-
The term “spraying," unfortunately,
has come to have a general meaning,
and It ts apparent that some fruit
growers do not yet understand that the
kind of spray and the manner of appli-
cation depend upon the character of ln-
which has visited so many homes. Ths
symptoms of grip this year are often very
distressing and leave the system in a run-
down condition, particularly the kidneys
which seem to suffer most, as almost every
victim complains of lame back and urin-
ary troubles which should not be neglect-
ed, as these danger signals often lead to
dangerous kidney troubles. Druggists
report a large sale on Dr. Kilmer’s

up-to-date orchardlst will know Just
j what each spray application Is lntend-
i ed to do and will realise the Import-
ance of spraying at the proper time
and In the proper way. A better un-
derstanding on the part of fruit grow-
ers of the life and hablti of the Insect
pests of their crops and of the nature
of Insecticides will add much to the
efficiency of their work In fighting
There are several Important Insect
pests, however, from which spraying
does not give protection, and the con-
trol of these must not be overlooked
by the orchardlst. Of these the most
serious are the several species of
borers, which are best destroyed by
systematic "worming,” once or twice
each year. The great desirability of
keeping Insects reduced by up-to-date
orchard practice, as fertilisation,
thorifligh cultivation, and attention to
pruning and other operations cannot
be emphasized too strongly, and Is
well appreciated by our most progres-
sive and successful growers.
A knowledge of the character of the
mouth parts of Insects Is of Importance
to the fruit grower, for It determines
the general character of sprays to be
used. Broadly speaking, all Insects se-
cure their food In one of two ways;
(1) By actually biting out and swal-
lowing portions of the food material, or
(2) by sucking out the Juices from the
Interior portions of the host. While
there are exceptions to this general
statement, these are unimportant In
the present connection.
Biting and sucking types of mouth
parts ara on two quite distinct plans.
In the former there are two hiwny,
opposable Jaws, working sideways, and
certain accessory appendages, with
which particles of the leaf, bud, fruit
or other food substances are cut out
and passed on as more or less solid
particles to the food canal for diges-
tion. This type Is found In several or-
ders of Insects, as In caterpillars, or
the larvae of mojhs and butterflies,
adult beetles and their grubs, grata-
hoppers. crickets, aawfllea. beet, etc.
All biting Insects are subject to de-
struction with arsenical* or other stom-
ach poisons. Some chewing Insect*, as
borer* and certain root-lnfestlng In-
sects, do not feed In situation* where
poisons may be applied, and for these
a different treatment Is necessary.
