Castoria Is an excellent medietas for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Dr. 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 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."
Da. J. F. Kinchbxok,

I recommend it as superior toany prescription

' 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."

The Bock Island District Methodist
contaius the following relatire to the
coming camp meeting at Tind all's Grove:
At a meeting of the executive com
mittee of the Camp Meeting association
it was unanimously resolved, on account
of crops being so late, and conference
coming so early, to hold the camp meet'
ing but for one week, commencing on
Tuesday. Aug. 23. and con tinning until
Tuesday. Aug. SO.
The grounds have been reported in
good condition, and surely there will be
co water famine this summer. Many ins
quiries have already been made for cot
tagea and tents. Present indications
give promise of a large attendance. We
expect every pastor within the bounds of
the district to be present a part or all of
We have a promise from Rev. J. F.
Berry, editor of the Epworth Herald, to
be with us on Sabbath. August 28. It
may be that Dr. J. W. Hamilton, one of
the secretaries of the Freed men's Aid
Society, will be with us for a few days.
One day will be devoted to Epworth
League interests. The newly elected
president (Rev. G. W. Peregory) and
vice-president (Rev. O. M. Dunley) will
have charge of the young people's meet
ing on the camp grounds. We hope to
see every league chapter in the district
fully represented at the camp meeting.
We would suggest that the president of

A GREAT SPANISH SPECTACLE
With Oanrlac ToarnamrntP, Kattlrsi,
F"ilval,ri"og;anti and Historical
Anyone who has read hut a little about
Spain will get a good insight into its his
tory from the grand object lesson that
Barnum & Bailey will present in their
Greatest Show on Eirth when it comes
here on Saturday, August 20, as one of
its greatest features is Imre Kiralfy's
magni&cetit historical spectacle of Co
lumbus and tbe Discovery of America.
To describe this wondrous and colossal
addition to the thousand and one attrac
tions of the circus and menageries would
be .to ask the allotment of too much
space; suffice it. that fully 1.200 Spanish
and Moorish characters are represented,
and that a stage 450 long is required, tbe
latter more especially for the 300 beauti
ful dancing girls comprising the ballet.
The whole interior of tbe enormous
waterproof tents are used when the
spectacle is presented, and every availa
ble foot of space is filled with a tremen
dous number of men, women
children, soldiers, cavaliers, Spanish
knights, Moorish warriors, priests, ft iars,
grandees, nobles, attendants, horses,
wild beasts, sacred animals, banners,
heralds, and others, who take part in its
most wonderful production. Scenes in
old Spain during the wars against the
Moors are truthfully portrayed, together
with thrilling, realistic battles, single
combats, tournaments, festivals, feasts,
dances, games, and ravisbingly beautiful
Bights, followed by tremendous triumphal
processions, pageants, choruses of song,
floods of majestic music, and stupendous
ballets, to tbe bewilderment and delight
of the thousands of assembled specta
tors. And with all this tremendous dis
play of wealth and magnificence, there
still remains the really instructive char
acteristics and features of this truly most
wonderful production, making it at once
a pleasure and a study for all classes.
The marvelous blending of colors in tbe
handsome costumes would charm the
soul of an artist; music captivates, the
grand scenes awe, the martial element ex
cites, the picturesqueness enchants, the
splendor amazes, while the realism of the
entire thrills and startles the beholder.
It is romantic, poetical, musical, martial,
professional, terpsichorean and operatic,
and withal historic and accurate in every
detail. Never before in the world's his
tory was so grand and colosfal a produc
tion ever conceived, much less attempted,
and only the vast resources of money and
matetial could render possible such an
Immense affair. The spectacle of Col
umbus and the discovery of America is
better than any history for telling tbe
story to children of the eventful life of
tbe discoverer of the new world. Besides
this spectacle, a'l the other great features
of circus, hippodrome, two menagaries,
magic illusions, horse fair, elephants, etc.,
are retained. Tne street parade will
take place in the morning at 9 o'clock.
