Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays

Castoria is an excellent medietas for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of ita
good effect upcu their children."
Dn. G. C. Oaooon,
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

I recommend it as superior to any prescription

Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi

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 Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show
on Earth is absolutely the only tented
show giving exhibitions in New York
city. This fact is known to everybody.
It is organized with a view of visiting
only the large cities of the country, but
as there are only some 60 of these, it has
of necessity to take in about 125 smaller
towns in the course of the regular season
ot 180 day 8. It is also the only show
that can afford to submit to the criticism
of the educated public, which caters to
them, and pays the high rentals de
manded in such cities as New York.
For instance, in the latter city the show
pays $1,200 a day rent (at the rate of
$438,000 per year) for each and every
single day of exhibition, in the new Madi
son Square Garden, in which company
Barnum & Bailey are large stockholders,
thus swelling its ordinary daily expenses
from $7,300 to $8,500. That
would bankrupt any other amuse
ment venture if it had merit enough to
make the attempt of showing there, and
because they do not is because they dare
not exhibit there. It is the same with
everything else connected with the Bar
num & Bailey show; the highest prices
are paid for horses, camels, elephants,
ponies, wild beasts, cages, cars, chariots.
floats, tents, seats and other essentials,
and they have more of them, because the
best only are wanted and used. The
largest salaries are paid to performers
for like reasons, and grand special fea
tures are secured each year because with
these shows a ready cash market is round
for the grandest, while cost is not con
sidered, providing the attraction is wor
thy. To produce that grand historical,
dramatic and terpsicborean spectacle
Imre Kiralfv's Columbus and the Dis
covery of America, alone required an
outlay of fully half a million dollars, for
which the scenery took $75,000, the
costumes and wardrobe 250,000, the
chariots, floats, triumphal cars, armor,
weapons, devices, emblerrs, and other
property of ancient design, $50,000
more, the balance of the first sum being
spent in searching foreign coun
tries for the historical ma
terial and data upon which the
spectacle is constructed, and in new and
elegant printing. These are but a few of
the items denoting the enormous outlay,
for there still remains an immense
amount of cash represented in other de
pnrtments. The horses are worth 150,
000, as there are 400 of them, the cheap
est costing $350 each. The elephants
are worth their weight in gold, the ani
mals, birds and reptiles in the two men
ageries could not be bought for several
ordinary fortunes. There are 64 railroad
cars, including a dozen sleepers, costing
all the way from 4 000 to $12,000
apiece, and the new street parade is val
ued at $1,500,000. Some of the perfor
mers receive salaries as high as $S00 per
week. These are only a few of the val
uable things that go to make the Barunm
& Bailey show what its title claims it to
be. the Greatest Show on rth, and it
will be here in all its undivided greatness

In "The Ensign," the new naval play
which is to be produced at the BurtU
opera house at Davenport on Wedcei-
day, Aug. 17, the dramatist has invaded
a new field, that of recent American ca
ys-1 history, and if all that is claimed for
fae play is true, it will undoubtedly meet
with the success here that it has met
wilh e'sewhere. In addition to a story
of absorbing interest and a strong cast,
comprising some of our very l est act rs.
it is splendidly mounted. Artists nnd
mechanics were eDgaced on the scenery
for months before the play was pro

Camp Lincoln, Springfield. Aug 12
Correspondence for The Akous. The
pleasant weather the past two days has
make soldier life at Camp Lincoln quite
a luxury as compared with the swelter
ing heat of the first two days' experience
here. Col. Clendemn is devoting him
self strictly to the instruction of the men
under bis command in military regulation
and the result will appear when the rec
ords of the rifle range are made up. The
special feature of Thursday was the review
of the regiment by the brigadier-general.
J. EL Barkley, of the Second brigade. The
general was escorted to the reviewing
stand by the Second battalion, under
command of Major AIcFartilen, and the
battery fired a salute, lie was attended
by Col. H. G. Reeves, Col. Theodore
Ewert. Col. J. C Bell, and Lieut. Loo9e.
Col. Rice of Peoria, inspector general of
rifle practice, is a guest in camp.
A sensation was created in camp last
night. Mamie Glennon attempted sui
cide because of disappointment in love
with John Roche of the Morrison com
pany. It is claimed this is her third at
tempt at suicide in a period of two years.
A Brilliant and Knfoyable Scene.
Last night proved a delightful occasion
at Black Hawk Tower, the event being
the semi-weekly ladies' and children's
band concert. Bleuer's band did itself
proud in the rendition of popular music,
and President Louderback, of the street
railway syndicate, had the Inn and
grounds brilliantly illuminated. The
only unfortunate feature was the fact
that there were not more present. Cer
tainly there is not so great an induce
mcnt for the street car people to display
its enterprise when there is not the mani
festation of appreciation on the part of
the public that such a public-spirited dis
