Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher s prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neii her Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is the Children's Panac ea the Mother's Friend.
"Castoria is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
pood effect uion their children."
Dr. G. C. Osgood,
"Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers wil 1 consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the variousquack nostrumswhich are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."

" Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have 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."

of Coal Valley, took place on the 29th at

The people were very well pleased when
the trains commenced running regularly
as they could not drive to Rock Island or
Moline on account of bridges being
washed out. The road officers have put
in temporary bridges so that the people
can get through, but the main road has
two large bridges washed out which are
not yet fixed for crossing, but will be be
fore long if the water keeps down.

out. The procession formed in the vr.
lage and moved to the grounds at 10
o clock a.m. containing a brass band, a
wagon with 44 children nicely decorated,
a number of persons on horseback and in
buggies, etc. On the grounds, where a
stand and seats were erected in the grove
at the Presbyterian church, the exercises
were had James Clegg was president of
the day and R. J. StenBtrom marshal.
The programme opened by an air from
the band, followed by prayer by Rev.
Robert W. Olson and a song by the
school children . Dr. Stcveason, of Mon
mouth, was introduced and delivered a
good Fourth of July oration, which was
patriotic. After "Hail, Columbia!" by
the band all adjourned for dinner. In
the afternoon there was a number of
sports performed. Several stands where
refreshments were sold, and on the street
east of the grounds was erected a spacious
dancing pavilion, where those that loved
to join in dance participated. Ar soon
as darkness appeared a splendid display
of fireworks was exhibited, and a baloon
ascension, and at the same time the air
was rent with the sound of the music, to
which the dancers kept time with fantas
tic toe, which was kept up till dawn.
