vliiou I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
Intf n-st of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
d.-strojing thi'ir loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful

them to premature graves."

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 woo us to look with
favor upon it."

Catarrh Cant be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the peat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to tnke 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 the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined wiih the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of the two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
