Dr. Q. C. Osgood,
Castoria Is the best remedy for children of
-hich I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
for distant when mothers will consider the real
luterrst of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."

Catarrn Cant be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of tbe disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It :s composed of the best
tonics known, combined with tbe best
blood purifiers, acting directly on tbe
mucous surfaces. Tbe perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
