Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is the Children's Panacea th a Mother's Friend.
" Castoria Is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Da. G. C. Osoood,
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 the variousqnack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcingopiura,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Pa. J. F. KrscHKLoa,
" Castor a is so well adapted to children that
I recommend it as superior to any preacriptiOD
known to me."
B. A. AftCRft, M. D.,
Ill So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. T.
"Our physicians in the children's depart
ment bam spoken highly of their experi
ence in thslr outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only hare among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon It."

Passenger train No. 1 on the C. R. I.

an eccentric at Minonk.
Engineer John McConnicfc, the veteran
of the C, R. I. & P., who has been laid
np t number of months at his home In
Davenport by a paralytic stroke, is n
ported as improving.
Passenger business on all the roads is
just fair, but there has been a percepti
ble increase in freight traffic which is
shown by the yards which are now filled
Baggageman Tom Johnson, of the C,
R. L & P. , who for years has run be
tween Chicago and Washington, Iowa,
has been changed and is now holding
down one of the runs oa the Atlantic ex
press. William Wimer, who has charge of the
mason work that is being put in near the
Brooks crossing by the C, R. I. & P.,
fell down the steep embankment there
yesterday afternoon dislocating his left
arm . He will probably not be around
for some time.
Conductor John Snider, of the C, B.

day night. He was run down by some
cars that had been kicked into aside
track while his crew were switching at
that point His home is at Mendota,
where he leaves a wife and family
C, B. & Q. switch engine No. 15, with
several switchmen on board, was derailed
back of the C, R. I. & P. round house
last evening-. It was running along one

over into the ditch. Tbe accident was
caused by the late rains washing away
the road bed, but luckily no one was in
jured, and no great amount of damage

Two 0:t I'ranira" Tonight.
The sparkling comedy success. "Two
Old Cronies," will be presented at Har
per's theatre tonight. The Philadelphia
Daily Ledger of Nov. 3, last, said f tbe
"Two Old Cronies" bids fair to attain
quite a respectable age before it is shelved
by censent of Arch street theatre audi
ences. Last evening it was revamped at
this house by Anderson's unique come
dians, who, if not exactly unique, were
grotesque enough to amuse many of the
spectators. This piece belongs to a type
of compilation erroneously styled furce
comedy, but which is, in reality, mugiral
extravaganza. Ti e average p.-r n who
finds liberal enj'j-m-ul in "Two Old
Cronies" is i ot hhely, however. o d s'trt
