Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher’s prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years* use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas-
toria is the Children’s Panacea—the Mother’s Friend.

“ Castoria is an excellent medicine for chil-
dren. Mothers have repeatedly tola me of its
good effeet upon their children.”
Dr. G. C. Osgood,
_ Dowell, Mass.
" Castoria is the best remedy for children of
Which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the
real interest of their children, and use Castoria
instead of the various quack nostrums which
are destroying their loved ones, by forcing
opium, morphine, soothing syrup and other
hurtful agents down their throats, thereby
sending them to premature graves.”

from one to ten or more investi-
gators are engaged in the discov-
ery of the laws that underlie the
practice of farming, and in finding
how they are best applied.
So rapid and so sure has been
the progress of this enterprise in
both hemispheres, that private
persons, educators, societies, and
governments have learned the
usefulness and indeed the neces-
sity of these institutions, not for
the farmer alone, but for all who
are dependent upon the products
of the soil. The movement is ex-
tended to Asia and to South

lutely no reason in the world why
consumption should be fatal—
why it should be even serious. It
is a disease of the blood, and can
be cured absolutely and always
by purifying and enriching the
blood. The only exception to this
is the case where the disease has
been neglected and improperly
treated until it is stronger than
the body—until the body has be-
come so weak as to have lost the
ability to recuperate. Dr. Pierce’s
