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.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
fevcrishness. Castoria prevents vomiting: Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and "Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation an. I flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natur:.! sleep. Cas
toria is the Children's Panacea tho Mot V er's Friend.
Castoria Is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told mo of its
good effect upon their children."
Da. O. C. Osooon,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which 1 am acquainted. I hope the day U 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 sending
them to premature graves."
Da. J. F. Kixcheloc,
" Castoria is so well ndanted to children that
I recommend it as superior toany prescription
know n to me."
H. A. Archer, M.
111 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 onr
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."

John Wainwright's son was out in the
bay field cutting grass with a mowing
machine. Otto Nold was out gunning
and fired his gun in close proximity to
Mr. Wainwright's team, which caused
the horses to run away, cutting - one
horse so badly as to make it worthless.
Mr. Wainwright talks of bringing suit to
recover the value of the horse.
Two teams were mowing in a field be

If some protectionists open their
mouths thev are sure to slick their foot
right into it. Take the following from
ie New York Mail and Express:
"In 1860 the domestic production of
carets in this country amounted to 13.-
000.000 yards. In 1890 it had increased
to 74,000,000 yards. Carpets that were
sold in the former year at $ 3 a yard now
sell for 621 cents per yard. Thus re pub
lican protection has increased the domes
tic product 570 per cent ana decreased
the price by 70 per cent."
The above is another sample of repub
lican logic. Because two conditions ex
ist one must be cause and the other e(-
ect. The Mail and Express produces
neither evidence nor argument in favor
of its statement. There is not the
slightest reason to suppose that "repub
lican protection" has produced the results
claimed, even if those results have really
been secured. But supposing these
statements are all true, what thenT Why
could the reduction of the price of car
pets from 83 to 62 cents a yard increase
the wares of the workmgmani
