After all tho stomach plays a great

Why Castoria? ' '
Y"EARS ago Castor Oil, Paregoric, Drops and Soothing Syrups were the remedies 11
in common use for Infants and Children; Castor Oil so nauseating as to be H
almost impossible and the others all containing Opium in one form or another,
but so disguised as to ma,ke them pleasant to the taste, yet really to stupify the I
child and give the appearance of relief from pain, I
It required years of research to find a purely vegetable combination -that I
would take the place of these disagreeable, unpleasant and vicious remedies that H
from habit had become almost universal, This was the inception of, and the reason
for, the introduction of Fletcher's Ca3toria, and for over 30 years it has proven its H
worth, received the praise of Physicians everywhere and become a household word " H
among mothers. fl

son of California marked his arrival
on tho Republican convention battle
ground here today with a prompt, em
phatic declaration that ho would de
mand an unequivocal plank in the Re
publican platform against the league
Met by a crowd of several thousand
enthusiasts. Senator Johnson an
nounced his intention to center nis
platform fljfht on tho league question.
Ho spoke from the hotel "balrony of
hls'headquarters to a large crowd, and
alno defined his position in formal
statements to tho press. Tonight he
was honrse from speech-making, but
ready to launch into conferences with
convention leaders tomorrow.
"My paramount purpose," said Sen
ator Johnson. "Is to havo the Repub
lican party fearlessly and frankly take
Its stand on tho all-important ques
tion of the league of nations and
against the present covenant. I want
tho Republican pnrty in 1920 to be
the party for the protection and Inde
pendence of human freedom.
"The plank on the league which I
wish to have adopted should bo ono
no clear and explicit that it will re
quire neither explanation nor interpre
tation." Senator John3on said he had not'
decided whether he would lead his!
league fight from tho eonvontlon floor,
but he said lie was prepared for thati
course if there should bo any dodging
on the issue.
"There is a disposition In some
some quarters to eliminatft from the
Republican party just common folks,"
said he. This must not be tolerated.
The Republican porty must not be de
humanized. I deny tho right of the
power or tho authority of any news
paper or self-constituted leaders to
read out of tho party those in whom
Lincoln's spirit ever abided, the plain
peoplo of the land."
