Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neither 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 Panacea the Mother's Friend.
Cantori.t is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Dr. Q. C. Osgood,
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
apents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Pa. J. F. KrxcHEiOK,
" Castoria is so well aduptcd to children that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription
known to me."
H. A. Archer, M. D.,
Ill So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. T.
" 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."

sultry highness has sunk far enough
into the vapors of the horizon to be well

sight about now. says the Davenport Dem
Almost dead in the center of the great
red orb will be seen a round black spot.
It looks to be the size of an ordinary nail
head 30 feet away. Below it and nearer
the southern limb will be seen another
and smaller but similar spot. Both of
them look as though somebody had been
carelessly shooting at the glorious god of
day, and had made a couple of bulls
eyes. To say that these spots look like
bullet-holes is to exactly describe them.
That is just the appearance they present.
The possessor of a pair of good eyes
has little difficulty in seeing the spots,
especially the larger one, unaided. After
a glimpse of it is once obtained it is
plainly seen, an d the other one can be
made out when its position is known.
Observations made day by day will show
the gradual travel of these spots across
the disk of the sun, if they are not ob
literated by the changes that are continu
ally taking place in that body, before its
edge is reached. They are now in the
best possible position for observation,
and no doubt the telescopes of the as
tronomers are turned upon them full
tilt. Much of our information, such as
it is, of the nature of the sun and its
source of heat, has been de
rived from the study of these
phenomena. As a rule, enormous
sunspots are accompanied by displays of
electrical and magnetic energy, often re
sulting in storms and the aurora borealis.
Sometimes the disturbances take the
form of electrical storms: simple distur
bances of the electrical conditions of

be operated without battery, or refuse to
work at all, as they may happen to be
operated with or against the prevailing
currents; in which the magnetic needle is
agitated, aDd in whicn sometimes even
the commonest objects are electrified so
as to give off sparks and act queer in
other ways. It has not yet appeared that

A small Moline boy, named Charley
McManus, had a narrow escape from
death at about S o'clock yesterday after
noon, lie was struck by a switch en

of his right hand was out off by the
wheels. There were a few other cuts
and bruises, but nothing more serious.
A dog that was with the boy was cut to
pieces at the same time.
"Making Up" with a Prince.
The following story would srera incred
ible if my father had not heard it from au
eyewitness. When Colonel Innox, after
wani Duke of Richmond, called out and
nearly shot the Duke of York, the indig
nation of the royal family and their friends
was extreme. After a time, however, the
prince regent forgave the audacious 1 del
ist and quite unexpectedly asked him to
dinner. A large party was awaiting the
arrival of their royal host when, to their
amazement, Colonel Lennox was an
nounced. Being received with silence and cold
looks he resolved to mark his sense of the
courtiers disapproval. So he laid down
two chairs side by side on the floor and
leaped over them. Being a man of sinrru
lar activity, he repeated this little comedy
after laying a third chair over the lirst
and again after laying a fourth on the
second and again after laying a liftli on tl:e
summit. At this last jump, however, his
foot caught the topmost chair and the pile
was scattered over the floor.
Atthis moment tlie prince entered the
room, and in astonishment asked the un
seasonable athlete what, on earth he was
about. '"Really, sir," replied the una
bashed visitor, "it is most unfortunate.
Jso one spoke u. word, and I had to amuse
myself; but I sincerely hope that none ot
your royal highness' chairs is broken."
The prince laughed, and the matter blew
over. "No one but a thorough gentleman,"
said my father, who used to pronounce
this word with a iw.-culiar emphasis, and to
employ it in a somewhat narrowly exclu
sive sense, "could have carried the affair
off as Colonel Iennox did." L. olle
