"Castori.x !s an excellent medicino for chil
dren. 5Iot!icrs have repeatedly told me of its
pood effect upoa their children."
Dr. G. C. Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is cot
far distant ivhen mothers will consider the real
Interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of thevariousquack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sanding
them to premature graves."
Da. J. F. KrscaaxoB,
" Castoria Is so v.-el! adapted to children that
I recommend it as superior lo any prescription
known to me."

" Our physicians in tho 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 wonderful little lady Mrs. Tom
Thumb and her company of midgets ap
pear at Harper's theatre Friday afternoon
and evening. The Countess Magri. for
merly so well known as Mrs. Gen. Tom
Thumb, was born in Middleboro, Vass.,
October 31, 1842. and is now 50 years of
age. and 84 inches in height. Until she
was a year old she was of the natural
size; from that time she increased in
stature slowly and ceased growing en
tirelr when she was 10 years cf age. She
is a perfect weman in miniature intelli
gent, pleasing, modest and agree-
able. Although she has only
the stature of a small child, she
has the sense of a woman. She speaks
like an educated, full-grown woman, and
selects such topics of conversation as a
mature woman would select. Her fcize
is so snail that a baby's chair is quite
large enough for her to sit upon. She
has rich, dark, waviug hair, large bril
liant and intelligent eyes, and an ex
quisitely modeled neck aDd shoulders
Her bust would be a study for a sculptor
and the symmetry of her form is such
that were she of avtrage size she would
be one of the most handsome of women
She is now, but in miniature form.
Catarrh Can't be Cared
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.
