I desire emphatically to deny."
said President Howard, that any pol

been decided upon by tho American
Farm Bureau federation or any com
mlttee appointed by it. We desire
merely to evolve a marketing system
which will eliminate useless handling
costs, unnecessary selling expenses,
ruinous price fluctuation due to mar
ket juggling anil speculation and to so
co-ordinate supply and demand as to
Insure that on the one hand the pro
ducer receives the cost of production
plus a reasonable and living profit
and on the other hand the possible
mark-up actual costs."

INFANT MORTALITY is something frightful. We can hardly realize that j
of all the children born in civilized countries, twenty-two per cent., I
or nearly ono-quarter, die before they reach one year ; thirty-seven I
per cent., or more than one-third, before they are five, and one-half before I
they are fifteen ! ji
We do not hesitate to eay that a timely use of Castoria would save I
many of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many I C
of these infantile deaths are occasioned by tho ure of narcotic preparations.
