Look back at your childhood days. Remember the "dose" mother insisted on-castor oil, calomel, cathartics, you hated them, how you fought against taking them. With our .children it's different. Mothers who cling to the rid form-of physic simply don't reaii/.e what they do. The children's revolt is well founded. Their tender little "insides" are injured by them. Jf your child's L.omach, liver and bowels need cleansing, give only deli-clous "California Syrup of Figs." Its action is positive, hut gentle. Millions of mothers keep' this harmless "fruit laxative" handy; they know children love to take it; that It never fails to clean the liver and bowels and sweeten the stomach, and that a teaapoonful given today saves a sick child tomorrow. Ask your druggist for a V.oule of "California Syrup of Vigo," which has full directions for babies, children of all ages and for grown-ups plainly on each bottle. Beware of counterfeits sold here. See that it is made by "California Fig Syrup Company." He-fuse any other kind with contempt- frequently asked in the past few mouths than "Who wrote 'Christine'? ' j It has been a very live discussion wher-j over hooks arc talked about. j First of all. is it genuine'? Is the j hook a collection of real letters written | hy a real girl in Herllu studying music ! j a( the outbreak of the war. or is it the I 'clever creation of a novelist? And, | afiain, is Alice Cholmondeley a nom dei ! plume hiding some distinguished liter-I ary light, or js it the name of a bereaved mother as stated in' the foreword? As to the authenticity of "Christine." tho publishers find themselves unable to make a positive statement,.owing to} the unusual conditions of publication. Some time along in the summer of 1917 the manuscript, of "Christine" was offered to The Macmillau Company by a lawyer representing the author. It was read and accepted for publication. According to the agreement that was entered into, all arrangements for the hook's issue, were to. he made through the rawyer; the publishers were tr> have no communications with the author, whose identity was not to be disclosed to them. Through all the,weeks during which the book was being manufactured this lawyer retained a professional silence, an^ he has retained it to this day. The publishers are as much in the dark about the renl Alice Chplmoudeley as is the least informed reader of lhe letters which she has edited. The authorship of "Christine" has been attributed to many prominent, writers by readers who have not been willing to accept Alice Chomondeley an the author. Most popular, perhaps, jf all of the suggestions, has been the one editing the author of. "JSiUabeth and Her German Garden,'* with the book.
