Castoria is Ir. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Irops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its fpiarantee is thirty years' use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
fevcrishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures marraoeM iwu uua vuuv. uuiuna iuuoico
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy aud natural sleep. Cos
toria is the Children's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
Castoria Is an excellent medicine tor chil-
(dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of it
good effect upon their children."
Si. U. C. Osoood,
Castoria is the best remedy for ehildven 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 rarious quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Tn, J. F. Knt chkidb,
Castoria is so well adapted to children that
I recommend it as supor lor to oy prescription

Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Ca torts,
and although we only have among ear
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 household favorites and pets of the
children, Mrs. Qen. Tom Thumb and her
com pan v ot Liliputians will appear at
Harper's theatre tomorrow giving two
performances, evening at 8 o'clock, and a
grand family and school matinee at 8 p.
m-presenting the new pantomical musical
extravaganza, ".The Rivals" and "Gulli
ver Among the Liliputians." and the
sparkling new musical comedy "The
Countess," introducing Mrs. Gen'. Tom
Thumb, Count Magri, Baron Magrl and
the smallest and most versatile actors and
musicians In existence, in a bright, briU
li ant and bustling performance, pleasing,
harmonious and refreshing.
In these days of trashy and common
place shows, it is a rare treat to see an
entertainment that is refined and pleas
ing all through one to which you can
take your family and little folks with
perfect safety, and with the assurance
that all will be entertained and edified.
Such were the performances given here
yesterday by the Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb
company- Children like to be enter
tained, and Manager Howe has now an
aggregation whose performance chatms
and satisfies all. and deserves to be
everywhere greeted with crowded house.
New Orleans Picayune, Dec. 30. 1S90
Ben Headricks, who played "Ole Oi'
son" in the lively comedy of that name
and so favorably remembered here last
season in the title role, never saw a real
Swede in bis life until the summer of
1891. Having signed to play the char
acter cf "Ole Olson." he journeyed 1,000
miles and spent days in a Swedish settle
ment in order to capture the dialect and
mannerisms of the poor honest people of
fair Sweden. How well he has suc
ceeded is known to all who have seen
him. He will again please our people
at the Harper theatre next Wednesday
eyening. He will be ably supported by
bright-eyed little Lottie Williams, St.
George Hussey and others, including the
Swedish nightingales from Stockholm.
John T. Kelly, one of the most popu
lar comedians of the day, comes to Har
per's theatre on next Monday Labor
day evening, in his new comedy. "Mc
Fee of Dublin." This will be the first
production of the piece in this city. The
play was written by Charles T. Vincent
and Mr. Kelly, and is said to be one of
the funniest comedies ever produced. In
"McFee" Mr. Kelly has an excellent
comedy part that fits him to perfection,
and will be aided by an excellent com
company. Including Mattie Vickers, Flor-
rie West and others. John T. Keiley
was last seen here in "U and 1. and is a
great favorite with our theatre goers. He
is one of the few Irish comedians who
can act, sing and dance. In "McFee of
Dublin" he will introduce a number of
new specialties and novelties.

Catarrn Cant 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 core it you haye 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
tbis 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. Bend for testimonials free.
