For the best slogan to encourage Medford people to patronize home merchants, the Medford Merchants' Association has offered three cash prizes, $5, $3 and $2. The contest closes Saturday, March 8, and the contestants are asked to mail slogans to John H. Carkin, secretary, Medford.

Each slogan must contain the word "Medford" and must be limited to 10 words. An ad elsewhere in this paper contains blank spaces to fill out, and further information.



Your child isn't naturally cross, irritable and peevish, mother! Examine the tongue; if coated, it means the little one's stomach is disordered, liver inactive and its 30 feet of bowels clogged with foul, decaying waste.

Every mother realizes after giving delicious "Syrup of Figs" that this is the ideal laxative and physic for children. Nothing else regulates the little one's tender stomach, liver and bowels so effectively; besides, they dearly love its delightful fig taste.

For constipated bowels, sluggish liver, billiousness or sour, disordered stomach, feverishness, diarrhea, sore throat, bad breath or to break a cold, give one-half teaspoonfful of "Syrup of Figs" and in a few hours all the clogged up waste, sour bile, undigested food and constipated matter will gently move on and out of the system without griping or nausea, and you will surely have a well, happy, smiling child again shortly.

With Syrup of Figs you are not drugging your children, being composed entirely of luscious figs, senna and aromatics, it cannot be harmful.

Full directions for children of all ages and for grown-ups are plainly printed on the package.

Ask your druggist for the full name, "Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna," prepared by the California Fig Syrup Co. This is the delicious tasting, genuine old reliable. Refuse anything else offered.
