Are yon disturbed at night and broken
of your rest by a sick child suffering and
crying with pain of cutting teeth? If so,
send at once and get a bottle of Mrs.
Winslow's Soothing Syrup for children

will relieve the poor little sufferer imme
diately. Depend upon it mothers, there
ia no mistake about it. It cures dysen
tery, diarrhoea, regulates the stomach
and bowels, cures wind colic, softens the
gums, reduces Inflammation and gives
tone aed energy to the whole system.
Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup for
Children Teething is pleasant to the
taste, and is the prescription of one of
the oldest and best female nurses aad
physicians in the United States, and ia
or sale bvall drug gists throughout the
world. Jrrioe 20 cents a bottle.; .
Patience and gentleness are useful and
powerful, but they cannot cure a conga,
which, however. Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup
ill always do.
