Tite formula of this'famous fruit medicine is printed plainly on the cu'i side of every bos. We have stated many now state 3 Fruit-a-tives is made qf the of apples, oranges, figs anil prunes, with valuj ible heart and nerve tonics and antiseptics. Everyone knows that fruit juice is perhaps some do not understand why this is true. Fruit juice'consists of about 91% water, 8% of sweet principle; and i% of a bitter substance. It is the quantity of bitter principle in fruit Lhat gives the fruit value as a medicine. A.n eminent physician of .Ottawa, after years ol experimenting, found a method of increasing the bitter principle- juice, thus increasing the "medicinal or curative qualities. i The juices are first extracted from fresh, ripe oranges, a pples, figs mnd prunes. By a secret process, some of the sweet atoms are replace d by the bitter principle. Then tonics and antiseptics are added, and the hole made into tablets, now known far and wide as Fruit-a-tives." "Fruit-a-tives" is the only medicine in the world that i- j made of fruit juices, and is one of the few remedies thai have let their compos ition be known from their introduction to the public. Fruit-a-tives is nature's stimulant for the liver, bowels, k jdneys and skin. In cases of obstinate Constipation, Liver Trouble, Indigesi aon. Backache, Rheumatism, Headaches and Impure Blood, this -wonderful fruit: medicine when everything else fails.
