Dl G. C. Osgood,
Castoria is the bent 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 us 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
(hem to premature graves."
Da. J. F. Kincbcloe,
" Castoria is so woll adnpted to children that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription
known to me."

" Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their expedi
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.

where the parties to the suit formerly
resided. Rosa and Michael F.uegel

knife upon her at one time and pleas
antly informing her that he "would keep
it ready," meaning that he would kill her
with it if she angered him.
