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.

IHillions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. CV.rstoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation :.nd flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, reguh-.' ? the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and na' . :-al sleep. Cas
toria is tho Children's Panacea the Ilv'her's Friend.
Castoria Is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Da. G. C. Osoood,
" Ca-otoria 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 sendiug
them to premature graves."
Da. J. F. Ktmcbklob,
Castoria is so well adnpted to children that
I recommend it as superior toauy prescription
known to me."
H. A. Aiiceiii, M. D.,
Ill So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. Y.
" 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 MtreeM Should ' He Cleared to
Prevent Accidents During the MUc
Tomorrow morning, starting from the
Columbian grounds promptly at 9,
the great Barnum & Bailej $1,000,000
parade will be given free upon the prin
cipal streets of the city. It eclipses any
thing as a street spectacular pageant
that has ever been presented to the pub
lic, and there ought to be a universal ef
fort made to clear the streets of horses
and vehicles along the line of procession
for several excellent reasons.
In order that all may enjoy the eight
of the spectacle with an unobstructed
view. This refers principally to the la
dies and children, who are In the major
ity, and a Eingle vehicle with one or two
horses along the curb impairs the pleas
ure of 50 or more people. The histori
cal floats in the spectacular represent
many of the principal events in the early
history of the United States, being vastly
more expensive and elaborate than those
Bien in any Mardi Gras or Veiled Prophet
procession, and the people who really
own the streets have a right to a good
view without being hampered or an
noyed by horses or vehicles.
2 Horses are apt to get frightened at
the unusual sights in such a demonstra
tion, particularly at the led animals, viz.:
zebras, camels and elephants, and if they
become unmanageable and run away, the
damage they may do in crowded tho
roughfares is incalcuable.
3. If they do not run away their an
tics in prancing and capering alarm and
detracts the attention of the ladies and
children, causing unnecessary panics
which would be avoided if horses were
not there at all. and under all circum
stances they should not be.
4. While the parade, it is true is an
advertisement for the show, it must be
remembered that it is a costly and elab
orate affair, presented free to the people,
acd no community in the world could or
would expend the amount it involves to
present to its citizens. In view of these
facts and to reduce the danger of acci
dents to a minimun, the managers ex
pect that the authorities will meet them
half way and give them clear streets to
5- The matter of clearing the streets
of horses and vehicles is a very simple
problem. The parade starts from the
show grounds at 9 a. m., and the route
of the procession will be in the hands of
the city authorities two or three hours
prior to its assembling before starting.
Twenty or twenty-five minutes prior to
the start, officers could go in advance or
be stationed a'ocg its line of march and
order all drivers of vehicles to remove
their teams off the street.
6. Because every other city has done
this seryice for the people of their com
munities this season for the parade, many
having city ordinances compelling the
streets to be cleared for the passage of
any street processional display of any
There are quite a considerable number
of people who thoughtlessly drive around
on occasions of this kind unconscious of
obstructing the views of their fellow citi
zens who would leave their team" at
home if proper attention is directed to
the matter. There will be but little of
any kind of business transacted during
the hours of the parade, and for the
pleasure, comfort and safety of the
throng of people who will desire to wit
ness the splendid moving panorama all
owners of horses and veh icles ought to
keep them out of the way.

A dispatch from Springfield says

Xhe J.M. K. Road.
The Galesburg papers say that the J
S. E. railway is a sure thing for that
city. If so, it will certainly come this
way. While in Jacksonville a few days
ago a Moline Dispatch man found that
every one there was an admirer of the
methods of the J. 8. E. The railroad is
now building extensive workshops in
that city, in which they will employ
about 600 men. The people of the city
adopted the plan of selling lots on a tract
and raised money to help bnild the shops.
The company has four lines out of Jack
sonville, reaching to Mt. Vernon, St.
Louis. Peoria and Hannibal, besides a
branch from tiavanna to Springfield.
Catarrn Cant be Cored
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the 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 the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with 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.
