for Infants and Children.
MOTHERS, Do You Know that Paregoric,
1 T 1 Batcman's Drops, Godfrey's Cordial, many so-called Soothing Syrups, and
most remedies for children are composed of opium or morphine?
1>° You Know that opium and morphine are stupefying narcotic poisons?
I>o Vow Know that in most countries druggist* are not permitted to sell narcotics
without labeling them poisons ?
Po You Know that you should not permit any medicine to 1>o Riven your child
unless you or your physician know of what It is composed ?
Po Von Know that Castoria is a purely vegetable preparation, and that a list of
its ingredients is published with every bottle ?
Po You Know that Castoria Is the prescription of the famous Dr. Samuel rltcher.
That it has been In use for nearly thirty years, and that more Castoria is now sold than
of al/otlier remedies for children combined ?
Po Tott Know that the Patent Office Department of the United States, and of ^
other countries, have issued exclusive right to Dr. ritcher and his assigns to use the word
"Castoria" and its formula, and that to imitate them Is a state prison offense?
Po Von Know that one of the reasons for granting this government protection *
was because Castoria had been proven to be absolutely harmless ?
Po Von Know lliat 35 average doses of Castoria are furnished for 35
cents, or one cent a dose ?
Po Yon Know that when possessed of this perfect preparation, your children may
be kept well, and that you may have unbroken rest ?
Well, these things are worth knowing. They are facts.

A striking example of miscalling
thoroughfares may bo taken from
Wimborno, in Dorset. If you askod
a native of that town for Leigh (Leo)

if by any possibility you happened
to give Leigh the local pronuncia-

It is just tho saino with many vil-
lages. Touring in Norfolk, you aro
pfono to go astray often if you nro
not careful. Hindolvoston is com-
monly willed Hiklerston; Acloispro-
nouncod Aiklo by many, but tho old
inhabitants will havo it that it is
Ackloy; Sail is locally Saul, and Roop-
ham is spoken of as Roof ham. Sim-
ilar examples aro frequently mot
•with in Sussex. Thus wltjiia easy

field, Steyning and Hurstpierpoint.
Tho first is pronounced Cookfleld,
tho second Stanning, while tho third
is dockod to Hurst.
In tlio same way Badlosmore, In
Kent, is called Basmere; Ring-way,
noar Northondon, in Cheshire, is pro-
nounced Runjer; Ciroencester, in
Gloucestershire, is styled Ci9iter,
and Koighley, in Yorkshiro, is in-
variably spoken of as Keithley.
Again, tho inhabitants of Pontofract
call their town Pomfret, and in tho
north generally children ask for
"Pomfret cakes" when they want
Tho forogoing examples, however,
aro not moroly dialectical peculiari-
ties, like Owdham, Bowton, Rachdft
and Blogburn for Oldham, Bolton,
Rochdalo and Blackburn severally.

also other forms. Ono may bo illus-
trated by Maidstono. Tho natives
of tho peoplo about tho town gen-
erally call it Medstow, which spell-

Then tho names of tho places aro
froquontly shortened in conversa-
tion. Bournemouth is locally spoken
of as Bourne, just as Birmingham
is callod Brum, and Ashby-de-la-
Zoucli is curtailed to Ashby-della.
Nottingham "lambs" in liko mannor
often call thoir city Notts, and as
for such placcs as Market Harbor-
ough, Stony Stratford, Fenny Strat-
ford and so on ono of tho two words

others aro cut down to forms which
no stranger would understand. Tun-
bridgo Wells, for example, is simply

plete alterations of plaeo names aro

Romp With the Children.
"Chauncoy Depew advised follow
diners recently to join with their
children in their play and romp
with them if they would enjoy life,"
gatd a young father recently. 1' Well,
I took his advice," ho pontinuod,
"but I find that my little boy of 3
yoars can stand a good deal moro
than I can.
"Ho led mo a merry danoo this
morning playing hide and sook all
over tho house. When, after an
hour, I told him wo had had enough
of that, ho proposod something olso
and so on until I was on tho point of
"It is all right to romp with your
childron, but you should get into
training first. It is harder than
ohopping wood, football or any other
form of athletic exorcise with which
I am acquainted. "—Now York Jour-

General Gordon of Goorgia tells
tho following story of tho war period
to illustrate tho shrinkago of tho
"Ono day a cavalryman rode into
camp on a reasonably good horse.
'Hello, cavalryman,' said a foot sol-
dior. 'I'll givo you $3,000 for your
horse.' 'You go to (tho bad place),'
was tho horseman's reply. 'I just
paid f 1,000 to havo him curried.' "

did was to break her husband of all

The Smart Hoarder.
It doesn't pay to bo too funny. A
man who formorly boarded at a
Maino hotel used always to call for
"old hen" when ho saw chickcn on
tho bill of faro. Tho tablo girl and
oook thereupon preparod for him,
and whenevor chicken was sorvod
an old hon also was providod, and
this particular boarder alwavs got a
generous pleco of that. Aftor this
order of things had continued for
three months without tho boarder
suspecting tho joke, ono day ho called
£he waitress to tym and told her ho
•$ds getting sick of old hens, and
he'd liko to have a tasto of chicken.
"Very well,"was the roply, "you

regularly, and &s this houso always

A Gay Deceiver.
"My doar," said Mrs. Honeymoon
to her spouse ono day at dinner,
"tho doctors say that one should not
think of business matters at meal-
times, as it impairs tho digestion and
injures tho health. Pray, doar, what
do you think about whon wo sit

" Sweetest," rojliod tho old man,
"I only think about chew."
