If Cross, Feverish, Constipated, Give
"California Syrup of Figs."
Look at the tongue, mother! If coat
ed, it is a sure sign that yiur little
one's stomach, liver and bowels need
a gentle, thorough cleansing at once.
When peevish, cross, listless, pale,
doesn't sleep doesn't eat or act natu
rally, or is feverish, stomach sour,
breath bad; has stomach-ache, sore
throat, diarrhoea, full of cold, give a
teaspoonful of "California Syrup of
Figs," and in a few hours all the foul,
constipated waste, undigested food
and sour bile moves gently out of its
little bowels without griping, and you
have a well, playful child again.
Y'ou needn't coax children to take
this harmless "fruit laxative;" they
love its delicious taste, and it always
makes them feel splendid.
Ask your druggist for a .fifty-cent
bottle of "California Syrup of Figs,"
which has directions for babies, child
ren of all ages and for grown-ups
plainly on the bottle. Beware of coun
terfeits sold here. To be sure you get
the genuine, ask to see that it is made
by "California Fig Syrup Company."
Refuse any ither kind with contempt.
DEATH OF LITTLE GAIL PRES
NELL On Saturday evening about five
o'clock Oct. 17 the death anrel visited
the home of Mr. and Mrs. James E.
Presnell and carried away the sweet
spirit of their little 7 year old son
Gail . The funeral service was con
ducted by Rev. J. E. Thompson of
Asheboro alter which the body was
laid to rest in the new-made cemetery
at West Bend, where a large congre
gation had met to pay the last trib
ute of respect to the departed. He
was kind and effectionate bov. to
know him was to love him. We miss
the sweet smiles that he gave, we
miss thee in the Sunday School, we
miss thee everywhere. It is hard to
give him up, but still God's will
be done not ours.
His vacant chair now empty stands,
His voice we'll hear no more,
Weep not loved ones, for God hath
Suffer little children to come unto Me.
Gone to rest our little darling,
Here no :.-o-; we'll see his face,
B'it ve':i r-.et again in heaven,
When v.oe run life's rugged race.
Gone to rest asleep in Jesus,
TJtesped hoe, we'll meet again,
And in heaven there'll be no parting.
We'll re free :"rom care and pain.
Short his stay !iut how we miss him.
Stricken hearts alone can say,
When we see t'.e'little garments
Miss the childis'i face day by day,
Gone to rest, he's free from sorrow,
With the ange s 'round God's throne,
And soon we shall see him,
But our hea' ts are sad and lone
When we reach the pearly portals
Of the city bright and fair,
T'lere ven r-oet our little darling;
H ? will bid us welcome there.
An I with Jesus and the angels
we wili dwell forevermore
And we'll know our little darling,
When we meet on that bright shore.

DARKEN GRAY WM
Bring back color, gloss and thickness

Common garden sage brewed into a
heavy tea, with sulphur and alcohol
added, will turn gray, streaked and
faded hair beautifully dark and luxuri
ant; remove every bit of dandruff, stop
ecalp itching and failing hair. Mixing
the Sage Tea and Sulphur recipe at home,
though, is troublesome. An easier way is
to get the ready-to-use tonic, costing
about 60 cents a large bottle, at drug
stores, known as "Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur Compound," thus avoiding a
lot of muss.
While wispy, gray, faded hair is not
sinful, we all desire to retain our youth
ful appearance and attractiveness. By
darkening your hair with Wyeth's Sage
and Sulphur, no one can tell, because ii
does it eo naturally, so evenly. You
just dampen a sponge or soft brush with
it and draw this through your hair
taking one small strand at a time; by
morning all gray hairs have disappeared.
After another application or two your
hair becomes beautifully dark, glossy,
soft and luxuriant and you appear yearn
