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 in
stead of thevariousqiiaok nostrums which are
destroying their loved1 ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
apents down their throats, thereby sending
theiu to premature graves."
Ph. J. F. Kincbcloc,

I recommend it as superior toany prescription

caused detailed plans and estimates to be

beginning its construction. The matter
of route, dimcnnions and character of the
canal are no longer under discussion and

with his 8Cuen.e I simply told him to go to

The story of "Indigo." the opera to be
song by the Carleton Opera company at
Harper's theatre tonight, is based upon
the old "Arabian Nights" tale of Ali
Baba and the forty thieves, and is as fol
lows: Fantaaca is loved by King Indigo,
the sole proprietor of the Indigoian Isl
ands, a part of the earth that has unac
countably disappeared. Fantasca, the
slave, is betrothed to Janio, the king's
jester. However, this fact makes no
difference with the king. He wants Fan
tasca, and that is the end of it. Janio
plans to frustrate the king in his desires,
and in carrying them out is aided by his
sweetheart and Ali Baba, so everyday
donkey driver. The king is misled into
believing that his treasures are in danger.
His mj' sty has been so economical that
the army has been disbanded. Faiitascs,
to carry out her share of the conspiracy,
recruits a band of Ami zons and then
offers to save the treasures. She intends
after getting her share, to quit the conn
try with Jacio. The king makes the
agreement to divide, and then Fantasca
goes through the motion of defeating the
thkves, and when she receives her share
she incontinently departs.
