Your druggist may not keep an imitation but they are to be found'

Yotrr own judgment tells yon that Fletcher's Castoria haying for
over thirty years at great .expense held up its reputation, must jeal

Must retain skilled chemists in its manufacture.
Your same eood judgment must tell you that these irresponsible
