Dr. G. C. Owmd,
Castoria is the best remedy for ahildven of
which I am acquainted. I hop the day is sot
for distant when mothers will con&idet tke 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
them to premature graves."
Dr. J. F. KmcBiLOK,

" Our physicians in the children's depait
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among eu
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 RIVER SURVEY.
t'apt. Httwsri C'onpletts Mia Work
to the Wineoaaln Line,
The sovernment steamer Patrol hs
gone to Hannibal. Engineer Stewart
having completed the "triangulation" or
preliminary survey of the width of the
Wississippi valley from Burlington to
the Wisconsin state line. This work con
sists in the location of points three miles
apart on each side of the river, fixing the
longtitude, latitude, etc. The prehml
nary survey was begun about 1879 and
was worked up the river as appropria
tions would allow.
After the perfect survey is completed.
the government will print maps in two
sizes and distribute them at actual cost.
The large maps will be sold at 20 cents a
sheet, the small maps at 7 cents
a sheet. Each sheet will cover
about 20 miles of the river
All the woik is being done under the
Mississippi river commission. The maps
can be obtained when done, by address
ing the secretary of the commission at
At Hannibal Mr. Stewart turned the
Patrol over to Assistant United States
Engineer A. T. Morrow, who will take
the quarter-master boat Illinois, which
has been in Qnincy bay all winter, and
go to Hannibal, where the engineers will
begin the survevine up. There are
about 64 men in the party.
The government allows 30 cents a day
per capita for the keeping of those on
the Patrol, but though supplied with
everything that is required the cost has
only been 27 cents per day capita three
cents less than the allowance.
Mr. Stewart now returns to Plum
Point near Memphis, to resume a job he
has charge of there. This is the build
ing of a dam 4,000 feet long, 80 feet
wide, and 30 feet high across the river.
The channel is divided, and the object of
the dam is to close up the chutes. The
work will probably cost about fiOO.000

gentlemen contested earnestly for the band

the course of the wooing fought a fierce
duel with swords. It is a thrilling fenc
